Let's put aside the fact that Hank's machismo is a disguise for his trepidations and that this makes him a pretty fascinating character and talk real life. Sure, cops, soldiers and firefighters etc. know that they might be in life-threatening situations. However: Those aren't supposed to happen. The fact that these people are in dangerous jobs doesn't make ...

According to a 2009 interview, James Cameron explains: “We wanted to say that there was an otherness, an alien-ness to them. But we wanted to keep them human enough that we could understand their emotions. So, they were going to have two eyes, and they were going to have a mouth.” Cameron made a point to say that he took particular pride in creating ...

He is a Bravo; their swords, Rapiers (Arya's sword, Needle is created based on a Rapier), are not the same as a Westerosi Knight's (who usually use a Long or Broadsword). Unlike the fighting style of Westerosi knights, Water Dancers favor slender, lighter swords for a faster, more elegant fighting style based on sword thrusts, instead of the hacking and ...

Well, for a start, he provided an interesting historical anchor for the story. But even more than that, the real Nikola Tesla was quite an enigmatic and visionary researcher with many ambitious ideas (though, I guess a teleportation/cloning machine might have been a bit over the top even for him), that not all found the appreciation that they might have ...

According to the books wiki he didn't know: Unknown to Tyrion, Catelyn was told by Petyr Baelish that the dagger used in Bran’s failed assassination attempt belonged to Tyrion. I don't think it was different in the show (for sure she didn't mention it in the capture scene) and I don't remember him finding out later. In the TV show this plot dies in ...

Since answers started to show up I've decided to summarize my comments into one. In the books Renly's age is known, he is 21. Based on the fact that the actor Gethin Anthony was 27 when the series begun we can assume that in the series he's older (in his late twenties). Regarding the manhood questioning part, it seems that indeed there was some. We can ...

Though user21855's answer wasn't very specific, it is indeed true that there is that scene in the TV series. He really is a good lover with a no-larger-than-usual sized member. The girls couldn't explain exactly what it was that he did. There doesn't seem to be any particular reason for these scenes other than a sort of comic relief... thing. The ...

I don't think Tony was obsessed with Gina. He just had the image of her as a little girl and didn't want her to be like him, so what Manny told Gina in the movie was true that Tony was like a father to her, protecting her and such. Tony was high on cocaine when he killed Manny, if he wasn't he probably would have been shocked sure but he wouldn't have killed ...

From Wiki, Sarah Jane first appears in the episode The time Warrior (1973): she hides in the TARDIS after she met the Doctor in a top secret facility. From Sarah Jane's Wiki: Sarah Jane first appears in the Third Doctor serial The Time Warrior (1973-74), where she has managed to infiltrate a top secret research facility by posing as her aunt, ...

The gist is: James wanted to be different (not green martians nor human like skin color & tone) without being a radical as the purpose wasn't to desensitize us from the Na'vi people. He wanted to be able to raise an issue / difference that is a president factor with the audience i.e. Skin color and race. Something that can be visually referenced and ...

Possibly because "Cinderella" was a mean-spirited nickname given by her stepsisters, and others, especially friends, wouldn't be so cruel. The stepsisters called her that because she was forced to sleep in the cinders by the fireplace, leaving her dirty. "Cinderella" meant something like "little cinder girl". It's not clear what Cinderella's real name is ...

I saw in a documentary/making-of that minions were inspired by both TicTac candies and gift-eggs from Kinder surprise, which explains the yellow color and why they are so full of surprise and always ready to have fun. That was the character designer words, (translated from french).

While we may not know the specific reason for their color, we do know that they have been around for millions of years, as we see that they interact with dinosaurs. This means that they may just be yellow because that is how they evolved. Why is any animal any color? Another theory I have is that yellow is generally seen as a happy color. And they are very ...

Melfi has a history of alcohol abuse. Kupferberg is aware of this and is afraid that Melfi might use alcohol to escape her guilt about abandoning Toni. He uses the term sugar substitutes as a euphemism for alcohol. Alcohol is not a sugar in the chemical sense, but rather a product of fermenting sugar. It can however, toxic effects left aside, serve as a ...

A quick search seems to imply that no one knows. Carrel appeared in character on Ellen DeGeneres' show and said he's from "Albuquerque, New Mexico" but there's no way to know if he was being serious or not. It's around 1:50 in the clip below: As you can see, she seems to doubt what he says and his response is "Don't push ...

It's implied that he's killed, but I'm guessing they wanted to keep it off-screen to maintain their PG-13 rating. There's one point in the film when he's in a room with Zoe, and the view cuts to outside the room, and you hear him yelp in pain. Unfortunately, I can't find a clip of this on YouTube.

I don't think he's hinting at anything but rather advising Melfi about her health. Sugar substitutes (AKA sweeteners) might be as detrimental to your health as sugar and might lead to weight gain.* From the Wikipedia page about sugar substitutes: A 2012 study at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul showed that addition of either saccharin or ...

According to spoilers for the 2nd season: Goran Visnjic, the 42-year-old Croatian actor who plays Dr. John Woods, Molly Woods' (Berry) robotics engineering husband, will be leaving the series. But before he makes his full exit, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Natalie Abrams, he will make an appearance at the start of Season 2. Yes he's dead. But ...
