comment Why did the Joker lick his lips?
This answer does provide useful insight, but still only sort of answers the question. We only know that Nolan didn't direct him to do it. The dream solution: Ledger commenting on it. +1 pending more info.

comment How do the Dallas movies fit between the old and new shows?
Some constructive criticism: you're asking a few different questions here. One about continuity between an old project and a rebooted one, and another about viewing order/relevance. Also: the interview cited in that Wiki article answers your question about continuity, definitively, from a writer/executive producer for the show.

comment Why do British sitcoms have so many fewer episodes than American ones?
In my opinion, this answer includes the best of all of what is mentioned by previous answers. +1

Can you provide links to the source of these? I'd like to read more.

comment What does the word “Cellar Door” represent in the movie “Donnie Darko”?
@wbogacz should add that to the Q, it provides necessary context

comment Did Bond sleep with Eve?
My initial reaction to this question was: 'why does this matter?' But the Moneypenny angle is a solid argument. +1

comment Why is James Bond less tech savvy in the Daniel Craig movies?
Shouldn't the question be something like "Why are the Daniel Craig Bond films less gadget-oriented than the earlier ones the series?" As it is worded now, the question implies that James Bond himself is not tech savvy, which is a completely different question (and inaccurate, I think).

comment What happened to Bruce Wayne/Batman's knee?
@amme Probably not what they were going for but I like that idea!

comment Why couldn't Bond have backup at the battle of Skyfall?
I believe it was alluded to earlier in the film that only someone with an inside knowledge of MI6 could accomplish what Silva did. This was, of course, before they found out it was Silva who was behind the attacks.

comment Why couldn't Bond have backup at the battle of Skyfall?
+1. Initial reaction: because, as James said, Silva was one step ahead of them the whole way. But that doesn't really explain it. Maybe so that they could be prepared and force him to improvise? That also sounds flimsy. Looking forward to an answer here!

comment Why does Buster not join in the family chicken dance?
@Arabella He doesn't, but does make chicken-like noises when assisting Gob in his 'Free Bird/Free Chicken' illusion (not trick) in the episode "For British Eyes Only."

comment In Mad Men, is the firm of Sterling Cooper Draper Price (or its earlier iteration, Sterling Cooper) based on a real advertising agency?
This is a solid answer to a question that may not actually have a real answer. You have interesting insights and offer logically-presented conclusions. Something tells me there can be more here, but this certainly meets my qualifications for an answer. +1 + check.

comment Is X Files shot on location at UMD's campus?
Can you provide any episodes that mention the University of Maryland as a location? I am a UMD alum and am confident that I could figure out if they're actually there or not. We did definitely have St. Elmo's Fire, National Treasure 2, and some (probably) hilariously bad movie starring Corey Haim called Life 101 filmed on-campus!

comment How did Angier know not to appear in The Prestige?
@ChristianRau I have reservations about the existing answers, but yours makes sense to me. If you can parse it out a bit, I'd consider that an acceptable answer!

comment How did Angier know not to appear in The Prestige?
@ChristianRau I really like the theory that Angier prepared for such a situation. Their visual exchange when he was in the water tank supports it. It does change the balance of power between Borden and Angier in the film, though. Very interesting...

comment Why is there no Robin in the Nolan-directed Batman movies?
Can you provide some evidence for your answer? There is a lot of very interesting information here but without a source to back it up I fear your answer may not receive the attention is deserves.

comment Why did The Hulk punch Thor while fighting the Chitauri?
Do you have any basis for the claim that 'Hulk hates competition?'

comment Is kelp tape real?
Can you provide some evidence to support your claim that kelp tape is, in fact, real? Perhaps there is an article about or clip from "Crumb" that could enhance your answer?
