I swear everything I watched in high school on the WB all blends together prob all the school, work, and booze. It was like there was angst? White middle class teens? Angry about life? Or something? Everyone made out and sex was a HUGE deal like it got a TV 14 rating and shit. I think? I swear I just blacked out that entire period of my life.
How could I forgot Chris Pratt was on Everwood?
I loved Everwood.

A medium is defined by who has the vision. Film is a director’s medium. His or hers is the vision the entire production is looking to execute. In TV, it’s the showrunner. In literature, it’s the author and in magazines it’s the editor.
Whose vision is being executed in Marvel’s films? Not the directors’. Joss Whedon has spoken often of the fact that when he signed on to do The Avengers, they had certain elements set in stone: Loki was the Big Bad; Cap, Thor and Iron Man would have a big battle in the woods; there would be a big Helicarrier fight; and the Battle of New York. These were immutable. When Anthony and Joe Russo boarded Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it was made clear to them that SHIELD would be disbanded by film’s end. Traditionally, directors don’t get dictated to in such a manner. Because once a director is hired to make a movie, everyone involved realizes it becomes the director’s movie.
No, the vision that’s being executed belongs to Kevin Feige, the executive producer of these films and the face of Marvel Studios. And if we look at our handy taxonomy of vision, when a producer is calling the shots, you’re dealing with, for all intents and purposes, a television show.
Marvel isn’t making movies — it’s making a massive TV series, with episodes that cost around $200 million, and there’s no end in sight."
— Marc Bernadin, “Surprise, the Marvel Universe is one really big TV show.” (via lyrafay)
