comment On “Mad Men”, why did Don Draper steal the identity of his fellow soldier?
That's what's weird to me. How can you steal someone's identity at war and then expect to not be noticed when you go home? Wouldn't it have been easier to just stay Richard and never talk to Richard's relatives again?

Thanks. I figured this was the story. Just seems like a not-well-thought-out decision, given the complications that Richard would face when he returned to from the war, and people started saying "hey you're not Don." But it's TV -- I need to suspend disbelief!

Argh, I haven't seen the show (my bad for commenting regardless) and I guess the graphic isn't as straightforward as I thought. Oliver_C, I think your comment might be a good answer itself...

comment Where does the name “Ewoks” come from?
Also, from what I understand, the planet Endor was originally conceived as the home planet of Wookies but was later changed to the home planet of Ewoks.

comment Who was the girl in Django unchained?
+1 good question... her appearance definitely suggested there was more to her story, so indeed it seemed strange when her character was left unexplored

comment Why does Weyland have to hide that he was on the ship?
@ Dr, there is scene after he comes out of cryosleep in which she initially visits him in a hopeful, loving manner -- but he rejects her, cementing her hatred of him.
