Do want.

If I had a spare $250 and nothing to spend it on I might well go here just because the guy does COOL WORK.

I remember him. He was on Who Wants To Be A Superhero?, but didn't make it past the first day because he spent too much time shilling for his site and Stan didn't like the crass commercialism. (Edit: And yes, I'm aware of the irony in that.)

Oh yeah. Stan Lee finding someone else's commercialism to be crass... I didn't watch it because frankly, I found the whole concept and execution to be slapworthy.

I get the objection to the concept, but how can you know about the execution of something you have never watched? Enquirer Minds want to know!

Not sure why you are asking me this question.
I object to the execution of the Iranian elections and I haven't watched them either.

It's just a stock question really. Many entertainment newsgroups have people who say "This show was poorly executed" in one sentence and "I have never seen more than five seconds of the show" in the next, and so people naturally wonder if the opinion was informed by hearsay, mainstream critics, spontaneous kneejerk reaction, tea-leaf reading or a scroll of secrets written by the local garden gnome.

I'm not even entirely sure how serious I intended the question to be. To be sure, there's always a baseline level of curiosity, but is it at the "OMG was Darth Vader actually Luke's uncle's cousin's former roommate? I can't breathe for the next three years for not knowing!" level of anxious anticipation? Probably not.

Though from the length and glibness of this answer of mine, I merely suspect that my writers block has spontaneously dissolved and you were just a victim of a resulting flash flood. Or maybe I'm just in love with the sound of my own words, my beautiful words... okay, done now. =^..^=

Hee.

Actually I _did_ watch several episodes of the show, but wasn't able to watch more than one all the way through without being repelled by the cliched, the over-used tropes, and the lack of contact with current comics that Stan exhibited.

Frankly, reality show formats impose some pretty unwantable stupidity on their victims. The one that lost me was when Stan chewed out the guy who "revealed" his secret ID, with "Spider-Man would never do that."
Of course, the very next day, Spider-Man did exactly that. His being that far out of touch with how the comics were portraying his own characters was the extra durian-scented icing on this one.
