This is Looney Tunes!  This week we discuss the upcoming DC Comics/Looney Toones crossover and come up with a couple ideas of our own.  However, not everything is silly in the word of DC.  We also react to Tina Guo's metal version of the Wonder Woman theme.  And how about that Deadpool teaser?  We'll share our thoughts on it.  In television news, we discuss the casting announcements for the Big Bang Theory spin-off and the idea of digitizing Spock into the new Star Trek series.  We'll also decide whether or not we will go and see the 3-D re-release of Terminator 2 this summer.  All this, plus two challenging rounds of Pick a Number and It's All Connected
