Worst character to deliver a lame global warming PSA:

Gee, I wonder what Dave is going to say. Could it be Tony Almeida from 24? The funniest thing about Carlos Bernard's Global Warming PSA was it came right after Tony helped kill 25-30 FBI agents & then stole Jack's meds which caused Jack to have one of his Total Recall faces. I was thinking, "How I can trust you about Global Warming, when you just stabbed your country in the back (again!)". Not exactly the best timing.

Bad-Ass Rodents: I'll guess I'll go with the "King" rat from Willard.

The movie I almost walked out of was Deep Impact. President Morgan Freeman was good but the rest of the movie was a snore. I wanted to leave but I wanted to see the big destruction scenes that I saw in the commercials.

Prequel: This is easy. The Shield. I would like to see how Vic became so dirty & when he first met Shane. Was Shane a decent cop who got corrupted by Vic or was Shane already dirty & that made it easy for him to work with Vic?

TV shows or movies that should get a prequel
How about Aliens: Vasquez and Drake, the Early Years

Worst character to deliver a lame global warming PSA
I'm going to change this to just a PSA in general: The NTI's via Bud's keypad in The Abyss. An ending that almost ruined a terrific movie.

Movies you almost walked out on
The Lost World, right when they decided to go all Godzilla on us

Bad Ass Rodents
I would have gone with the ROUS's, but since they were already said I'm going to pick the rats from The Secret of NIMH. Any rats that can lift a cinder block and fight with swords are all right in my book...

TV Shows or Movies That Should Get a Prequel: Shark - I'd love to see a film about Sebastian Stark, amoral defense attorney. It would obviously be set before the character became a prosecutor with a conscience. Mostly just because I need to see James Woods in a starring role again.

Worst Character to Deliver a Lame Anti-Global Warming PSA: Leonardo DiCaprio in The 11th Hour. I'm very much in favor of taking action to promote climate change, but jeez, Leo's oversincere sermonizing in this one made me want to go outside and burn some coal.

Movie I Walked Out On: I actually walked out on two released around the same time... The Chronicles of Riddick and Timeline. Neither was completely awful, but both just felt like such a tremendous waste of time, so I left and slipped into something more interesting.

Bad-Ass Rodents: Vincent Price as Ratigan in The Great Mouse Detective. That guy is a bad-ass rodent if ever there was one. "Oh, I love it when I'm nasty."

Just finished listening to the show. I'm amazed that no one thought of the ROUS's! I see Dave has my back with the Rats of NIMH though
