I'm sorry, Guy, but I'm going to have to lock your pitch for now. The requirement before you are able to pitch a series is that you must reach 15 posts. If you haven't already, I strongly suggest that you take a look at our Pitching Requirements, and read over MJ's detailed Pitching Guide. Also, taking a look at our Accepted Pitches might help you out as well.
Once you've done that and met the 15 post requirement, the network admins will unlock your pitch and you can pursue it further. Thank you!
So i recently got a smack ton of comic books for christmas and i squealed like a preppy cheerleader when she sees a sale going on at forever 21 The spiderman comic pissed me off. Aimee dont read it...it leads to a smack ton of hate.
They killed off Peter Parker by switching his body with Doc Ock. But on the plus side he is in heaven with Gwen, his parents, and his aunt and uncle
Oh, I know. Because of that, I'm never buying another Marvel until they correct it. Not only was it a God awful way to get rid of Marvel's most iconic and recognizable character, but getting rid of him in BOTH of their most mainstream universes? They're going to regret that decision, fast, and hopefully get rid of Dan Slott while they're at it. That man has single-handedly ruined the superhero I've loved since I was old enough to know who he was.
I'm sure it won't last, though. I hang on to faith that Marvel is smarter than that and will either retcon it or bring him back in some way. Not only was it a stupid plot point, it's disgusting in several ways. Don't even get me started on the cover for Superior Spider-Man.
But the thing that pisses me off the most is how rude Dan Slott and some of the Spidey editors have been towards fans. They legit said that people would be upset, but eventually all the Peter Parker fans would "phase out". That's how you want to treat the people who have made Spider-Man such a success for 50 years? Fuck that. Between this, the retcon of Mary-Jane and Peter's marriage, and the bullshit that was Avengers vs. X-Men (and the aftermath), I'm done with Marvel until they can straighten themselves the fuck out. Not even the fact that they managed to bring Jean Grey back into the comics can make me buy from them anymore.

Alright! Finally settling down to read episode two. Again, bare with me because I still know little to knowing of Doctor Who so I expect to get confused once or twice, though it won't be your fault at all. XD So I say something or point out something that seems totally ridiculous, then you know why.
I'm just gonna go ahead and say that I love the thing about the Beatles in the teaser. Definitely pulled a grin out of me with that one, Kerry. Still loving their chemistry and their banter, it's one of my favorite things about this show so far.
Omg, the fashion police joke. I really love Rose XD The culture on this planet is kind of neat, from what we get to see in Act One. The whole telepaths in purple thing. Like it's simple, but still pretty cool. Wasn't expecting the sacrifice thing -- though I feel like I should have. Regardless, these people are nuts. Or, well, some of them XD This is gonna be interesting to watch play out.
You can understand both of their stances on whether to kill Ayune or not, and I love the tension that their disagreement on it is bringing in. I gotta side with John though, that bitch doesn't deserve to live. Annnd uh oh, there goes Rose.
I like the set-up for the next act that you've done in this one. John's change of mind, then his return to his original stance when he finds out they've taken Rose. Them preparing and moving in on the temple, getting ready to strike. I also loved the scene between Rose and Ayune, like, Rose's attitude through it. Actually, I love Rose in pretty much every scene. Definitely my favorite character, Kerry. XD
Not gonna lie, Ayune reminds me of that cult leader chick, Christabella or whatever her name was (it's been a while) from the Silent Hill movie. And I gotta say, I wasn't expecting that turn of events. That was really clever, how it turned out she WANTED to be stabbed and that the vision wasn't of her DYING from the stabbing. Nice job with that.
That prophecy thing has got me worried that you're going to do something terrible and awful that I'm going to have to hurt you for. Or hurt someone you love for. -eyes the cast of Outcasts- But all in all, I want to say that I really loved this episode and I think I might have enjoyed this episode more than the first. There were a few typos and some weird formatting things that probably weren't your fault because Final Draft does it to me all the time too, but other than that, this episode was pretty great. I can't wait to read the next one!
I give this episode a 10/10. Keep up the awesome work, Kerry!
I'm totally behind on Outcasts. Just about to read the mock finale. quick question: where did Famke go?
Sorry, I moved your post to the debut season's spoiler thread instead of the reboot's -- but to answer your question, Famke was part of the recasts that we did for the reboot. She will no longer be playing Jean Grey for the time being, that role has been given to Danneel Harris. There is an interview in the reboot's spoiler thread that explains most of it, if you wanna read that.

The Outcasts reboot pilot is COMPLETE! It'll be edited tomorrow once I finally sleep, and I'll probably make some adjustments to the episode and try to see if I can't logically move some scenes around to try and even out the act lengths. If not, then oh well. But, the main thing is that the episode is finished and now it's on completely to episode two!

The pilot episode of The Outcasts is well into Act Three, and the teaser has been completed for 1x02. Skeletons all the way up to episode seven have been completed, those and the teaser for 1x02 are all thanks to my awesome executive producer, Maddie. It feels great to finally be productive again.

REVIEW: Shadows of the Past[/u]
Alright, I'm going into this with exactly NO knowledge of Doctor Who, so bare with me here. I'm doing the review as a read, so be prepared for the possibility of side comments.
The teaser was a little overwhelming because of my lack of knowledge, but in general I really liked it. I feel like it was handled really well and the method of flashbacks and such that you chose to use were great. Also, I really love the description you've got, not just in the teaser but from what I've read out of Act One as well. It's not over-done, but it's still enough to paint a pretty good picture in our heads. It's not distracting at all.
Wooow. I gotta say, this Major dude is on my nerves. Also, props for the "Doctor Who" joke in there. I actually snickered.
There are few format oopsies and some punctuations issues here and there but they aren't enough to distract me from the script. Just thought I'd point them out though.
Oh, wow. I wouldn't want to stand in THOSE shadows. Poor soldier dudes, that's gotta suck. On to Act Two we go!!
I love Rose's attitude. She doesn't take anyone's shit, I like that. Plus she's got a little snark about her and just kind of a badass.
HAH. Take that stupid Major dude. Serves you right for being such a bastard. I'm really liking Ten II, too. He's pretty cool his own self.
I feel like there could have been more done to up the tension when the darkness was starting to consume the room, but I'm not gonna dwell on it. Definitely only a minor thing when the rest of it is so well-written.
Aww man, poor Brian. These little Vashta Nerada bastards are awful.
I feel bad for Rose and Ten II. The way you've got the emotion going between them is great, you can definitely feel it. You can feel how hard it is for them, and how awkward. Great job on that. And aww, the scene between them in the control room. That was adorable, not gonna lie. I like how this thing between them is playing out through this episode. I love the both of them already.
I think the some of next scenes, like the aftermath when the lights turn back on, and in the scene with Rose and her mother, was a little too novel-y. It threw me off a little bit. Not bad, I just felt like there was a little more "tell" than "show.
The final scenes of the episode were great. I feel like I should have seen the ending coming, but I definitely didn't. I'm glad that she chose to go with him in the end, and I know there are some epic adventures ahead. Their chemistry is great, and they're both really likable characters -- but, I gotta admit, Rose is my favorite of the two. Also, I feel like I need to watch Doctor Who now. Dammit, Kerry.
All in all, there were a few errors and some things that stood out to me but when it all comes down to it, this was a fantastic first episode and I really enjoyed it despite my lack of knowledge for anything Doctor Who besides the things you've shown me or that I've seen around the internet. I'll definitely be following the rest of this series, and I hope to catch up before the show returns! I give this a solid rating of 10/10. Great work!

Definitely considering giving "Fearless Defenders" a shot, because I loved the Defenders series before it was canceled a few months ago. Not to mention it's an all-female book for once and those need all the support they can get. Also gonna be reading Uncanny Avengers, All-New X-Men and I'm gonna try to give the Uncanny X-Men relaunch a try too. Not sure how I'll feel about it, considering how AvX ended, but we'll see.
And, I've decided to start reading Captain Marvel, because I've found a love for Carol Danvers thanks to Tumblr. XD

I've finally gotten the time to catch up with Watchtower over the last two days, and while I can't leave a few review for each of the episodes I've had to catch up on, I'm gonna leave a collective review for you. You've been such a loyal fan of the Outcasts and you've reviewed almost every episode, so I feel it's only right that I try and give the same encouragement and feedback that you've given me. That, of course, along with the fact that Watchtower was the first show I started reading on the VPN and it's been such a great series thus far.
I've gotta say, Jack, the first half of the season was amazing but you've really blown it out of the water with the second half. It's been such a wild, heartbreaking, and all around entertaining ride. You know how unfamiliar I am with the DC Universe, and how generally I don't much care for it, but you've managed to pull me into Watchtower and keep my interest in it despite not knowing so many of these characters. It's much less of a "DC Comics" show and more of just an amazing show that you've managed to produce here.
The Joker and Harley Quinn are two of my favorite people in the DC Universe, and perhaps the two I know the most about other than Batman (the irony there, I know). You've done such an amazing job with them in each episode they've appeared it. The way you did them was really captivating and enjoyable. The build up to the season finale was insane and intense, but that's what made it so great.
My favorite character through all of this has definitely been Chloe. Seeing how she handles all of this and everything that's going on around her, how her world is unraveling. It's heartbreaking, but amazing. You could really feel for her, especially in the last two episodes.
The season finale was so emotional, and you pulled everything off flawlessly. I'm not gonna lie, I cried more than once during that episode. The time and effort you put into this episode really shows, and left me with a lot of emotions -- none of them bad. I loved everything about the finale, how you built up to it and how you executed it. The tragedy of it all and again, the emotion in it. It was really powerful and there was never a dull moment in all the suspense and the action going on. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.
I feel like the finale has been a huge step in character development for all of these characters, and all the things you've hinted at for Season 3, they all make so much sense with the way the finale played out. A rough ride is ahead, I'm sure, but I'm excited for it. I can't wait to see how you unfold Season 3 and to see how this is going to effect everyone.
Again, I'm sorry I couldn't leave me detailed reviews for each episode, but I really wanted to leave something to let you know my thoughts and praise on your work with this last half of the season. I can't wait for Season 3, and you really did close this season out with a big, emotional bang. Well done, Jack. The finale gets a solid 10/10 from me. It's impossible to give it any less than a perfect rating.

Jack, I haven't caught up on Watchtower yet but I just wanted to pop in and tell you congratulations on finishing a twenty-two episode season and for concluding the second season of Watchtower! You are pretty damn awesome, my friend.
