    2. I enjoyed the original “Starship Troopers” novel by Robert A. Heinlein better. Too bad they didn’t stick with the original story when they made the first movie.

    3. It’s a crime that SONY pulled the plug on the series before the last campaign for Earth.

    8. I watched this way before I saw the movies. Then, when I finally watched the first movie, I was shocked at the profanity and gore. LOL, I had been duped by a cartoon!

    9. @hufnmouth: Yup, the Skinnies were included in this story line, and one of them even joined the Roughnecks. Heinlein would have hated it…

    10. @bejamus: Halo: 2001
      Roughnecks: 1999

      Nope, looks the other way ’round. Not including the book: 1959…

    11. @PaganPaul: I don’t think so,by the end of the book, the skinnies had switched sides.
      But favorite part of the book was the suits busting into a Skinny building and dropping the panic bombs. “I am a 30 second bomb! I am a 30 second bomb! 28! 27! 26! 25!….”

    12. Dude: “general, our troops feel as though they would be more effective if they were given two guns.”
      General Dude: “ok lol”
      Other Dude: “Hey guys, we all get two guns now!”
      Soldier Dude: “Why are they glued together?”
      Kirk Dude: “KHAAAAAAAAN!”

    14. Great, great novel; great series. Agreed that it was criminal that Sony didn’t support it to the finale.

      Knew the film would suck from the first time I heard they opted not to do the Suits.

      And what SumoSnipe said about the Skinny bomb.

      I’ve got to read that again. BTW, if you like it, I’d recommend the “Orphanage” (Jason Wander) series: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Buettner

    16. @xJoshuax: The movie needs to be renamed “Attack of the Really Big Bug”. It was good consumption in it’s own right, but not Heinlein’s social comentary. That’s akin to making Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” look like the next installment of “Sin City”.
