Reasonable DiscussionsHere’s your weekly open thread. Thank you for making our site’s community vibrant, intelligent, and fun!

A detailed discussion of the DC Comics relaunch, highfalutin talk about the Toronto International Film Festival… this may be our wussiest Reasonable Discussions yet. But our enthusiasm for Coach Taylor's Kyle Chandler's Emmy win for Friday Night Lights, so the football association counts for something, right? Though the stuff we talk about in Extracurricular Activities—like, say, a Weird Al tribute album—probably negates that too.
