  1. Luke Cage: Tired of Buying New Clothes (Spoiler Thread)

    Man it started out with great potential, but had spotty writing, pacing, and acting at times.
  2. Amazon to resurrect The Tick

    True. Especially since the cartoon had to be extensively tailored to children and the sitcom had to be..... Sitcomy. I'm mildly excited to see the creator's unfettered old ideas and the new ideas he's had since.
  3. 2016 Olympics - Opening Ceremony and beyond....

    Hope was suspended by U.S. soccer. I am sure US swimming works on is own timeframe, and Lochte was already informed something would be coming.
  4. Amazon to resurrect The Tick

    I do. I honestly don't believe that art is in decay either. I don't look at as an old idea so much as an existing perfect setting and characters for exploring other new ideas. It was never explored fully by previous projects canceled before their time.
  5. Amazon to resurrect The Tick

    Watched it. Not sure how I feel about it yet. It needs more episodes surely. The Tick himself was strange in this form. Couldn't quite a handle on his playing the character for part of it. His face is so round instead of angled. He was channeling Adam West a bit though. I burst out laughing during the meeting between "The Terror" and "Arthur". I thought that scene was hilarious. The fight was pretty hilarious to me too. They are selling a "Mr.Robot" or "Wilfred" vibe here, but The Tick has to be real, right? All the bad guys see him. I'm not sure if the superhero lair/hideout bit works nowadays for younger viewers. 20 years ago, yeah. Now, nobody uses that secret lair thing. I still found it funny, though. They left off the best line from the cartoon, though. "What does your couch turn into?" "It turns into a bed". The guy who plays Arthur was great.
  6. Stranger Things (Netflix) [Spoiler Thread]

    Yeah, I think there's a cultural reason for the trope. Latchkey kids were a thing, and I remember many of my friends coming home to an empty house and not having parents around for hours. Despite children today being safer than ever, it is now often a crime to allow a child this age to be home alone. Society has sort of rubberbanded the other direction.

  8. Stranger Things (Netflix) [Spoiler Thread]

    I am not 100% convinced .. (Ending spoiler)
  9. Stranger Things (Netflix) [Spoiler Thread]

    Binge watched the whole thing. Amazing show, That's not how you play demogorgon, though.
  10. Amazon to resurrect The Tick

    I truly wish it was the cartoon version.
  11. Video Games Thread: For the Love of Zeus, Give Me One!

    ... I played MGSV as my first MGS and the plot was completely inexplicable. But the game play was so fun. So many ways to play and great adaptive AI. I played it for months.
  12. Update on the "Winds"

    This site holds the Internet record for people who gave up on a series 10 years ago, yet continue to talk about that series every day.
  13. Shannara TV series in development at MTV with IRON MAN director

    They had to leave Oregon, however, because they ran out of snacks. These were the days before social media.
  14. Shannara TV series in development at MTV with IRON MAN director

    If I only had a nickel for every time I heard this phrase.
  15. Update on the "Winds"

    It will be a real shame if some of what your guys are writing is correct, because this series had (and still has) potential for absolute greatness.
