    Notes (33)

    • This episode's Flame Wars segment covers the confirmation of the development of the Superman Vs. Batman movie. As of 2008 his movie was never made nor has there been a move to create it. But it is interesting to note that the 2008 movie I am Legend had a movie marquee advertising the Superman Vs. Batman movie. A year after this episode aired (2003) DC comics released a comic called Superman/Batman, where the two heroes joined forces but did not battle each other.

    • This year end episode was extended 30 minutes to be an hour long.

    • This episode did not open with the usual "Starts Now" quote. Instead it had Laura and Tina welcoming Tommy as a Guest host previewing the episode's GTA theme.

    • The set is now located on the old Unscrewed set.

    • This episode has a major set change in that Laura is now sitting behind a counter away from the rest of the panel. Geoff and Tina are now standing at a table for the entire episode.

  • As an overall news sorce G4tv.com could never cut the cake for the true hardcore gamer that actually had access to the internet. However what it did have was an occasionaly interview or so which would lead to breaking news.
