  1. Watch, Watched, Watching: The San Diego Sneak Preview Version

    Disappointed with the crop of new tv, I rewatched season 1 of Chuck over the past week. It's amazing how they worked so many "throw away lines" into the story in later seasons. It does certainly show its age now though - I can't believe it's been 9 years! - just because of how much technology has advanced since it was first released (it reminds me of the jokes in Kingsman about their tech). I think this might still be my favorite pilot of any television show ever. Man I really wish I "got" this show the way everybody in the show's thread does, because while I thought it looked pretty, it's just one cliché after another. Hopefully it can move away from that, but I'm doubtful at this point... I realized today that I had yet to watch episode three yet. Maybe I'll just wait until the season is over and binge the rest. Snark or honest to goodness bigotry?
  2. Straczynski/Wachowski Sense8 on Netflix

    Okay. That makes me feel better. Back on the fence.
  3. Straczynski/Wachowski Sense8 on Netflix

    That's very disappointing. I'm on the fence on whether I'll continue or not. Recasting a main character midseason is frustrating enough, and if JMS didn't have much to do with the second season... looking back, the last thing by the Wachowskis that I really liked was V for Vendetta - in 2006. Season one of this was just okay (and I think I like it less the further away from its release we get - the ridiculous length of time between seasons bothers me too), and I was hoping for a similar one to two jump in quality as Babylon 5 had. But if JMS didn't work much on it coupled with my lack of faith in the Wachowskis, I think it's more likely that I don't watch season two than I do.
  4. Rank your 2016 TV shows throughout the year

    Haven't watched yet Haven't watched yet I'm actually quite enjoying both of these. Neither is going to win any awards, but they're both worth a look. I might not be the best judge though, because if I have a type I woman that I prefer, both Abigail Spencer and Peyton List would be it.
  5. Logan-First R Rated Wolverine Movie?

    Too on the nose?
  6. Gotham TV (Vol. 2)

    That would be cool. I don't know why I'm still watching this when I've dropped the CW DC shows, but I am.
  7. College Basketball 2016: Off-Season Shenanigans

    Clichés are clichés for reason
  8. College Basketball 2016: Off-Season Shenanigans

    Even a highly skilled chiropractor breaks a neck every now and then??
  9. Brooklyn Nine Nine [SPOILERS]

    That was the best episode of the season so far. Except for Gina, worst character on television. This week's episode of New Girl might have been the worst of the series.
  10. College Basketball 2016: Off-Season Shenanigans

    Let's throw out some clichés about the NCAA and this appropriate decision: A broken clock is right twice a day. Even a blind squirrel can find a nut. Others? I can't believe the season is nearly upon us. Where the hell did this year go?
  11. October Reading 2016 - Something Spooky?

    I finished The Suicide Motor Club by Christopher Buehlman on Saturday. I stalled a bit in the middle, not because I wasn't enjoying it but because it has just been crazy at work lately, but the climax was pretty awesome. I really enjoyed the characters, and it had some really nice moments of horror. Knee jerk reaction makes me think I liked this one better than his book I read last October - Those Across the River... but it's close. I'm now 14% through The Pilo Family Circus by Will Elliott - it's a creepy clown novel, and so far it completely lives up to that description. He really nailed that ending didn't he? My biggest worry when starting any horror novel is that the ending will be a big let down, and while this one was completely different than I could have ever expected, it was great.
  12. Luke Cage: Tired of Buying New Clothes (Spoiler Thread)

    I thought the exact same thing when I tried to read it yesterday.
  13. Watch, Watched, Watching: The San Diego Sneak Preview Version

    I watched Robert Redford's All is Lost last night... well, not all, but certainly 105 minutes was lost. Yeah... <sighs longingly> Just another way that TVland is a magic, unattainable place.
  14. Donald Glover's Atlanta on FX

    Best part of an amazing episode. This show keeps killing it.
  15. I think Dark Matter popped up on Netflix about a month after season 1 ended. It was stupid fast. I bought the Blu-ray for The Expanse (and Killjoys) as soon as they were available to support the shows that way, but I would still love for them to be available on Netflix because so many people have it and then will search out subsequent seasons as they air.
