Well, SpongeBob has a date of birth: July 14, 1986. If we assume that the series takes place in our times, that would make him 28. However, Bart and Lisa Simpson have been 8 and 10 for more than 20 years now. So if we assume that his age is constant in the show (which premiered in July 17, 1999), that would make him 13. Is that data useful in this cartoon? ...

I haven't read anything official that would point to this, but I do believe that the shift in Oliver's moral convictions was planned from the start. In the first season, Oliver's alter ego was called The Hood. The Hood had no qualms in killing people he thought deserved it. Come the second season and Oliver has a change of heart. One of the first things he ...

As was shown in last night's episode, "Four Walls and A Roof," Bob was likely crying because he was, in fact, bitten by the walker that dragged him under the water earlier in the day. He may have been contemplating suicide, and/or crying because he was building a relationship with Sasha and will now never get to fully see how it would turn out due to the ...

For the same reason that Ra's Al Ghul's regeneration and resurrection abilities have been reduced to trickery, allusions and a mere philosophical immortality of his presence and why various plot elements or characters were changed from the comic source material. To bring him more in line with the movie's style, atmosphere and setting. Nolan's take on Batman ...

The only people who know the reason are Marcellus and Antwan "Tony Rocky Horror". So here's my theory, but needs little explaining. After Zed incident, Marcellus tells Butch the only people that will ever know about the "incident" are himself, Butch and Zed (though not for much longer once he tortures him to death.) Sound familiar? I think Tony Rocky Horror ...

She meant it as a slight insult, implying that Roy had changed when he started dating Thea. Abercombie and Fitch is an upscale clothing brand that is considered "trendy", particularly among the children of middle-to-upper class parents. I'm not sure what the word for "preppy" is these days, but that's how I'd describe it. Roy and Sin, on the other hand, are ...

In the introduction scene of Ronan, he said to a Xandarian Because I do not forgive your people for taking the life of my father, and his father and his father before him. A thousand years of war between us will not be forgotten. Clearly this looks a solid motive to me. Revenge for his family. I don't know about the actual comics but in the movie ...

I think @System Down has summed up all the imported points. Just to add something though, here is an interview from Time Magazine the shows co-creator, Mark Guggenheim, where he discussed the change of direction in Season 2 compared to Season 1: TIME: Were there different sorts of things you wanted to accomplish with Season 2 compared with Season 1? ...

TLDR: She intended to kill herself, but wanted to wait for Nick to be publicly lynched in the media - but she changed her mind as she believed herself to be guiltless and thought she didn't deserve to die. Long Answer: Whilst this is Movies & TV, this entire answer is composed of quotations from Gillian Flynn's original book, Gone Girl, as it is ...

Asher had a chip on his shoulder by not being accepted as a true gladiator. Recall he once went back into training once he recovered from his early disabling fight, but his owner told him to get back to his secretarial duties. So, he always felt belittled by the other gladiators. I assume this last stand was his effort to demonstrate that he could be one of ...

He calls Pride "King" because that is his nickname. It is explained in the NCIS (mothership) episode that introduced the New Orleans team, "Crescent City", Season 11 Episode 18: Down in NO, LaSalle explains to Brody how Pride got the name King: When Pride first opened up the New Orleans NCIS office he made a big drug bust and a local crew made him ...

If you mean Ned Gerblansky, he isn't dead; at least, he was still around as recently as 2013, appearing in the episode World War Zimmerman. When Cartman went to Jimbo's store to buy a gun, Ned was there behind the counter, looking bored: Ned, however, didn't have any lines since 2001 (unless you count the video game The Stick of Truth released in March ...

IMHO there are two pieces of evidence strongly suggesting the answer to this question is no: Julianne Moore appears to be about the same age in both movies. But in "Carrie" her daughter is a high-school senior, while in "Don Jon" the daughter would not have been conceived yet. The timelines don't seem to mesh. "Don Jon" and "Carrie" are two different ...

As you said, Dennis is ostensibly a psychopath and sociopath. One of the main forms of satire that the show has used is to mock the manner in which most formulaic sitcoms have progressed from season to season, where the cast and characters become more and more beautiful and interesting and one-note. For example, with Seinfeld, you can see Kramer's ...

My reading is similar (but not the same) as G Blake Meike's. The ring symbolises a more noble/idealist Frank, taking it off isn't to allow him to toughen his knuckles, but is him "taking the gloves off", and entering the bare knuckle fight. The dialogue with Walker is a a Freudian thing, his humanity (or conscience) warning Walker that the fight is now on ...
