Hmm, I'm pretty sure he was named 'Superman' partly because he was strong and could fly, AND also because he had a GIANT LETTER 'S' embroidered on his CHEST. I mean, who does that. lol. "Hey people, look at me, I have a pretty "S" on my chest; and I wear my underwear on the outside".
Well, you'll need to watch 2010: Odyssey 2 if you wish to find out more. Basically, the monolith operators are interstellar gardeners; only, they seed life. Then there's 2061 and 3001, which haven't been made into movies.
But IMO the beauty of 2001 are these questions we ourselves ask. We're in the dark as much as the characters, without any additional inside information; On a journey to find out more about the great unknown. It also shows the progress of humans from this (XD) to building an A.I that goes rogue. Which I believe serves as an Organic Life v/s A.I comparison. And that, no matter how much we advance technologically, Life & Sentience is still beyond our grasp.
True. And if there's one thing that Counter Strike has thought us, it's : Never rush! haha. But rushing is the only way now for DC.
10 years ago I don't think anyone, including myself would've preferred a Captain America movie over a Superman/Batman team-up. But now; damn, Marvel Cinematic Universe has just changed everything.
I really hope there's a season 2. Philip K.Dick never wrote a second book; but as for the show, I sincerely hope there'll be a season 2 so that I don't feel like an idiot for watching this show. You'll know what I'm talking about when you get to the finale. ;)
