comment Is the exact same sound clip used in A New Hope and The Force Awakens?
when I saw the most recent movie, I heard it and assumed it was an inside wink, considering how much was lifted from the first movie.

comment Why do studios use Roman numerals in the copyright notice in the end credits?
I second the inertia argument. I just watched a football game. At the very end, there was a copyright notice of MMXV. Clearly, this was a live production of today. There is no value in masking the age of a football broadcast.

comment What is the first instance of the “Saving humans from themselves” trope
@MeatTrademark I would prefer it as a trope in a visual medium. If you think I would get another type of answer in SF (text based) I can ask it there as well.

I haven't seen the movie but in the book, the narrator is explicitly "Death."

comment X Files known by other name?
Just as a note, the Hebrew word translated here as "Dark" points to more than dark (which, literally would just be "khoshekh") -- it is more "darkness, pitch blackness ; despair, despondency ; dark (noun), unknown"

comment Is Suburgatory's characterisation of the NY suburbs remotely correct?
I don't know the show but NYC suburbs are very varied, covering everything from swanky areas of Westwood NJ, the Five Towns of LI and Scarsdale, but also the lesser economic suburbs like Fort Lee, Yonkers and such. Each area has a good side and a bad side.

comment Why does McCall time himself with the stopwatch in a lot of scenes?
I would guess that he wants to see if he still "has it". He is highly regimented -- the way he moves his fork and knife and lays the book on the table. He is precisely scheduled. He has an acute sense of time (which is why he can tell Ralphie "40 seconds exactly").

comment How was Ben stung?
But the responses was "during the day?" which might indicate that grievers walk through the Glade at night but not the day. They didn't respond "but he wasn't in the maze."
