I read it in Chapters today.

As fat as it is, very little happens.

So, business as usual, then.

Edit: Actually read the damn thing.  Ye gods, that was miserable.

I'm curious about the movie, whether it's possible to turn fifteen hundred pages of slow nonsense into an interesting two-hour film, but there is just no excuse for this series.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Now that we've heard from the joyless miser faction on the forums, what are the opinions of people still capable of experiencing and expressing joy?

Not with Michael Cera, no.

But hey, at least there's a cool game coming out of all of this.

Oh Michael Cera's not so bad. One of these days he'll get an actual role playing an actual character and YOU'LL SEE

Michael Cera has been excellent in things that were good and uninteresting in things that were terrible.  This is hardly as slight against him.

I enjoyed the series at the time, even if it wasn't the greatest thing ever. 

The last one really wasn't as funny as I was hoping, but I don't regret reading it.

It was an ending. It could've been more a million things but well, there was still a pretty decent amount of plot that he had to get out of the way. Which is why TA who hates all things good didn't enjoy it at all. I don't know what he does like but I'll make an educated guess for an example; If I started reading the Twilight series at Breaking Dawn I wouldn't appreciate it as much as he did after finishing the other books.

Anyway, it probably suffered a bit since he knew attention was getting drawn to it from the movie. Plus, like all the other books, needs more Kim Pine.

What, exactly, makes you think I haven't read the previous five?

Because a person that picks up the last book of a series and says he hates it is an asshole.

A person that reads six books in a series even though he hates it is probably a sociopath. I was giving you the benefit of the doubt.

I always finish a series. If I start out liking it and tastes change or the books change or something, I always finish. A story is being told, and I need to finish it.  If not I feel a terrible shame until I finally do.
So I've read a series I started out liking and then hated it two books in. I didn't like it, but I'm not a sociopath.

Well...


No. I'm not a sociopath.

Scott Pilgrim has only had one really low point, the lesbian fanservice.

Exactly how bad of a person am I for wanting to read it, but not wanting to pay for it?

I call anything I wouldn't want someone I want to respect me see me looking at a fan service.

edit because that was weirdly worded: if seeing shit makes you check the doors to make sure no one will see you looking at it, I consider it fanservice.
