  1. Figured we kinda need a thread for these ones... Out of the three, and considering Van Helsing only has a pilot so far, I'd say Wynonna Earp is the most engaging... wasnt sure at first, but the series has grown on me, mostly thanks to Wynonna's quirck, sense of humour and magnificent punchlines. Hunters was... well, 50/50... good ideas overall and some interesting characters, but it could be so much more. As for Van(essa) Helsing, well, let's wait and see... for a pilot, it wasnt a blast, and the basic trope of vampire apocalypse is sure as hell not the most original one, but I'll wait to see how it unravels, I must say I'm intrigued. Anyone interested to discuss these shows ? ETA ; if that thread had only been about Wynonna and Vanessa, I'd totally have called it "crazy chicks with guns".
  2. Why is the TV landscape so boring?

    Couldnt disagree more ! Between Black Sails, Supernatural, Rick and Morty, the Expanse, 12 Monkeys, The Magicians, Mr Robot, Sense8, Killjoys, Orphan Black, The Last Ship, The Strain, Limitless (reneeeeew !), Black Mirror or even Vikings, iZombie or The 100, just among many other (or "lesser but still enjoyable" others such as Damien, Dark Matter, Colony, Legends of Tomorrow; Netfix Marvel, Wynonna Earp, Lucifer, Preacher), I'd say genre-TV is really at a peek... but then again, what do I know ?
  3. RIO 16 - Best bits

    Okay, it's in French but the medal of humor goes to Pierre-Ambroise Boss after his 4th place at the 800 meters : the mention to his surely-disapointed cat (asking him to get his ass of the couch and take a beer from the fridge), or thanking his mates (one of them supposed to ask his girlfriend at Rio and then fearing he spoiled her if he hadnt done it yet), saying binge-watching Spartacus made him ready for the arena atmosphere and concluding all that with a very sharp analysis of his race ! Congrats PAB, you were hilarious !
  4. RIO 16 - Best bits

    That pole vaulting competition was among the most intense moments of the games, definitly !

    Woooow, once again the pole vaulting competition proves it can be thrilling and breath-taking as hell ! Sad for Renaud, but well, new blood and younger generations will always dethrone the kings and queens. Thiago Braz did amazing vaulting 6'03... still think Renaud could have made it, but Thiago Braz played with fire by skipping 5'98 and it paid off. That's sport and risk-taking at its most beautiful.

    Aurelie Muller DQed in the 10 km swimming race after landing the silver medal... there will surely be a protest from her federation. https://swimswam.com/aurelie-muller-dqed-after-winning-silver-medal-in-womens-10km-swim/

    Yeah, that was impressive ! Pet peeve, but as much as I admire Mo, I wished a Kenyan or an Ethiopian had won the race just to allow them to bring at least one gold medal home, but nevertheless, Mo is a fantastic runner and totally deserved to win !
  8. The Musketeers (BBC): Season 3 will be the last

    I really wish they gave more time to the relation between Porthos and what's her name (it was a cliché French name IIRC... Laetitia ? Delphine ?), cause it felt a little forced... and I really wanted him to find some happiness, but not that poorly written. Otherwise I kinda enjoyed the finale but I saw it like two or three months ago, I should rewatch some bits of it.
  9. 2016 Olympics - Opening Ceremony and beyond....

    Damn, tried to watch NBC to see how the Olympics were handled in the US but I forgot... US TV... Nope, wont do it, cant do it... cant stand 30 minutes of ads every 10 minutes of sport (exagerating but I really have the feeling I'm not that far from the truth).
  10. 2016 Olympics - Opening Ceremony and beyond....

    Been thinking... they should restore the good ol' archery on a horse discipline, that would be fun... and at moving targets to make it even more rock'n'roll...
  11. 2016 Olympics - Opening Ceremony and beyond....

    Here in France we have two women who used to be gymnasts to comment the gym disciplines, so not that much sexism and they know how to respect quieter or musical moments and the physical effort. But yeah, each field is commented by ancient athletes of the discipline. It's not the case over there in the US ?
  12. 2016 Olympics - Opening Ceremony and beyond....

    One of the best races of the Olympics is coming... the 4x100 freestyle relay ! Go France !
  13. Yes, that was my first thought as well... although I wouldnt be surprised it ends up to be Portia (Two).
  14. Just a quick mention to the actor who played Milo in the latest Dark Matter (Nyx's brother). I found him totally on point and quite magnetic ! A great performance imo !
  15. Holy hell !!!! Didnt notice that at all ! But now you say it, yeah, it's obvious !
