As Dreamers Do: American Magic Redux

I love it.

@QTXAdsy Any thoughts on a potential Universal Studios Battersea?
Could work though the lack of space might hinder them in the long term unless Universal buy the surrounding land. Funny you should mention Battersea as during this period that then Alton Towers owner, John Broome, nearly managed to make a theme park on the complex before costs spiraled to cancel the project.

That case then Universal will step in and take it on with the money they have. Think might go well here with the proposal.
 
Any questions, comments, etc. before we get to those.
The ITV franchise auction winners of ‘91 special:

Ten ITV franchises sold back to original owners without serious competition in the last phase (Border, Scottish, Channel, Central, Anglia, Grampian, Tyne Tees, Ulster, HTV and LWT).

TV-AM lost to Sunrise Television, backed by The Jim Henson Company, The Guardian newspaper, LWT and Scottish Television. The chairman of TV-AM said that he think that Sunrise will go under by ‘94 (IOTL, those words were Bruce Gyngell’s words), to which in the first press conference, Henson and LWT chairman Greg Dyke both laughed at his claims.

Yorkshire lost it’s license to White Rose Television, TSW lost it’s license to Westcounty Television, but Granada, makers of Britain’s longest running soap opera, Coronation Street, despite heavy competition from Northwest Television, founded by Phil Redmond of Brookside fame, it came out winning with a bid of £9 million.

TVS, the franchise for the the south of England lost to the Richard Branson-led CPV-TV, they have said they would have people in their region do a ”name the channel“ contest. TVS is looking at a sale like ITC/Central’s sale to Henson.

And lastly, the biggest of all ITV companies, Thames Television has lost to Carlton Television, a production company best known for Inspector Moore, Micheal Green have a very good time celebrating as winners while at Thames, staff especially Danger Mouse co-creator Brian Cosgrove who said that Carlton will never do something special, Thames is now opened to a bidding war starting in February 1993.

If Jhon K dosn't feel to south america I have an alternative idea for what to do with him. Being unhring by any animation studio john gets a job as an before being arrested for pedophilpe. I hope I won't regrett the following bit. Jhon K's vitim is a young Julia vickerman the furture creator of 12 forever. The reason I chose Julia Vickerman as Jhon K's vitim is because OTl she grew up to be a pedophile .Do you think being raped by Jhon K would scare her straight. a

Have you lost your bleein' mind?

Actually putting Rape out as a possible punishment/behavior modification tool?

What the actual...

This probably should be a straight up Ban, in fact it is been a while since I have been personally as offended by a post here (which, not coincidentally was also related to rape) I'm going to give you every possible bit of positive spin here and assume you really didn't mean this to read the way it does.

KNOW, with the certainty that the Sun will rise tomorrow, that you have used up every damned nanometer of slack you have on this Board.

Kicked for a week.
 
I don't really have any suggestions for The Avengers. Except maybe that the villain should be Loki, as Thanos wasn't created yet, and that Jim Belushi play Loki.
 
May I suggest just so that @Goldwind2 doesn't say something banworthy about her again, that Julia Vickerman be butterflied. I would love to see Rachel Stone create her series 12 Forever instead.

1: Here's hoping that Henson brings genuine prowess to the lot.
2: A well-deserved visit, in my opinion.
3: Not only did it hit the nail on the head, but I'd argue that Judith wouldn't have appreciated such an accurate string of parodies targeted at one man.
4: Speaking as someone who watched Madeline on Playhouse Disney growing up, I couldn't be happier about this.
5: On that note, what's NBC's worst Saturday Morning show this season?

Please stop trying to dictate what happens in timeline that is not yours? I have made that mistake before and it’s not a good thing to do.

With good reasons. I mean, not only is it the most expendable DIC show in that year's lineup, what with Madeline being a showstopper and Big Nate having the schtick of "underachiever with an imagination" covered much better for its time, but it's the only animated series on the block that isn't based on an existing IP. You could just watch The Pirates of Dark Water or Bobby's World if you're looking for original concepts on the Big Four.
