You probably know what Texas has been trying to pass an anti-airport-groping bill but TSA/AG have basically said, "Do that, and we will fuck you up." It's a sad situation. http://www.boston.com/travel/blog/2011/06/anti-groping_bi.html

Bob Kane didn't write any of that stuff. You're thinking of Bill Finger.

Dumb question, but are the boys twins? They look SO much alike!

I was just asking over at the Nerdist site when you were going to be on the podcast. Hope you guys can work out a time soon, I think it would be a fun one. :)

I feared there would never be another one. Thanks, downloading now.

Picking up the third season of BBT on Blu-Ray will be my first chance to see you IN HIGH-DEF. Really looking forward to your new BBT episode. :)

Oh, man, I had/have the most MASSIVE crush on Daphne Zuniga. But there's no way I'm watching One Tree Hill just to see her. :) Very funny clip, thanks for sharing.

Hmmm, I bought THE GUILD S3 DVD when it was offered on Amazon in February (which was print on demand, I believe), I assume this is the same content? Anyway, feel free to remove me from the contest running, since I already have the disc(s). Very entertaining chat with Felicia, I'm really looking forward to more Fawkes in S4. And BTW, being a huge DOCTOR WHO geek, I love that you wore a Dalek t-shirt in S3. :)

Did you get to kiss Felicia on the mouth? I'd better listen to the burrito...

What happened to that Burrito you were going to post a couple of weeks ago?

OT, but I happened to catch "Evolution" on BBC-America this weekend, and all I could think was, "THE HAIR!" :)

The Anne bumper is indeed full of win. And while I was a little too old to be truly "damaged" by POLTERGEIST, that scene where the guy rips his face off is still pretty cool, as is that extra-creepy under-the-bed monster.

"I'm living rent free, right here -- " is definitely funnier than "in your head." I thought it was your best line in the episode, both in terms of writing and performance. :)

Hey Wil, unless there's something screwy going on with *my* interwebz, it seems there's a glitch in paragraph 9; on my server, it reads like this: "would have been delighted to discover that we were so overwhelmed with auditionsNot enough time to perform because we're so overwhelmed with auditions?!" Your prose is usually so fluid that this really jumped out at me; just thought I'd mention it. Great post. :)

Huh. On the previous Q&A I asked a question about what the BBT guys would have done on the off-chance you'd said "no" to the script; I know you answered, but I see now the whole thing has been deleted. :(

I would never say "Made of Win" like the damn kids today, but that is totally awesome.

Hi Wil, I found this comment very interesting: "to learn a lot about writing and performing comedy by listening and paying close attention to the notes the writers and producers give all the actors, not just to me." I've heard there are some directors who only give notes very quietly to the individual actors, on the theory that the notes are somewhat private and should be kept between them. Do you have an opinion on that approach vs. a director/producer making notes known to all?

Well, you've played Todd McFarlane (on NUM3RS) -- how much more evil can you get?!?

Ha, awesome news, we just re-watched that episode recently, and just last night watched the new GUILD dvd. My wife is starting to wonder what's with all the Wil Wheaton stuff lately.

Was there ever any discussion of what they would have done if you'd turned down the part? Unlikely as it was, they must've had a plan B, given the rigors of television production -- would the whole episode have been scrapped? Or did they 'test the waters' with you beforehand?

"Nerd-adjacent" is my new favorite term.

Re. Charo - was it just me or do those silhouetted things in the background (which I guess are supposed to be parrots? Which is a bit wtf anyway) kinda look like hanged/dead people? Or does Charo's singing just make my mind go to very dark places?

I saw AKIRA in the early '90s, the original English dub I believe, and like many, I was pretty confused by a lot of it, even though it was in English... then a few years later I read the manga and realized they'd basically left out the last third of the story. No wonder we were puzzled. OT, where's my burrito?

C'mon, Picard/Beverly is too easy, we need some Wesley/ T'Shanik or even Mordock slash. ;-p Yay, first comment!

I visited LA once in the late '80s and a friend (who lived there) took me all around the Walk of Fame -- my most profound memory was that someone (or possibly something) had taken a shit on Ronald Reagan's star. I don't know if "disappointed" is the right word, but it was definitely different than I'd envisioned. :)
