I really don't like this show. 1. You know in the cut scene, pretty much what is going to happenin the ep. 2. Half the time they are bellying up "The Navy" Way w/ lines you can't cross, and the other half, crossing said lines, and doing what ever it takes w/ little to no consequences. 3. The action reminds me of the action on the A-Team. 10K bullets, couple red shirts/lowly bad guys down, 1 back ground character slightly wounded(and back on their feet the next week) and any thing that blew up, wasn't really needed.
The revue posted on page one, is pretty spot on. It is great, but I only watch one or 2 at a time. I have seen parts of both Hunting for Pablo, and Killing Pablo over the years. This is kind of half drama, half history docomentry. I like how they have added in real pictures and clips w/ what they shot.
I would complain that the should have either done it all in English or Spainish ( I don't mind subtitles, if a show/movie is good) because half the time, the translation is either going way to fast to read, or to slow to see what is going on. My spainish is basically limilted to knowing how to cuss somebody out, and a few other things you learn from working in a kitchen w/ mostly 1st gen mexican/amercains. Even I noticed how what is said, and what it is showing said aren't the same things.
1. I think they picked up the pace the last 3 ep, and added more Secondary storylines. Or I should say that they had a Main storyline, w/ some characters running a second line, instead of having each group on its own story line.
2. I can not argue w/ that. A lot of shows base everything about season 1, but then have no where to go in season 2, and then wind up running the same villian/ same type of villian the 2nd year.
3. I either fell asleep during part, or lost connection, and missed that part,when I resumed it.
The fact that Pope and Tom were never going to be BFF, was a given, But they had fought off and on almost every year. Pope kind of found his place and then found the love of his life, who made him a better man. For them to take him back to being the first seasons A-hole, was stupid, both the show and the character would have been better off if he became "the Good Guy". The black guy, I could see the guy that was always loyal, making a heel turn, if he did it, and not just following Pope, who he never really got along w/.
I kind of watch the last 3 ep, but really fell asleep during each of them. I miss quite a bit, but yet really don't think I missed anything.
There are a couple good ep's, and the last 3 kind of find a grooves, but they couldn't hold on threw out each ep. If you got the time, watch it, with the pick up for next year, it might be worth it.
The last 3 ep, they kind of changed the format of the show, w/ a WTF moment at the end of each. I still think this has everything going for it, if they can make up their mind about what they want to do w/ it. As I have said many times, a lot of Sci/Fi shows takes more then a season to find their footing.
Wait! WTF Wil Wheaton? Why don't I remember that?
@RedEyeGhost Give Z-nation a chance. It isn't any where near TWD, or FTWD, but it has a nice little quickyness.
There was an article about the 4 new series based off Novels, that I was going to post, but now I can't find it. Besides "The Expanse" there is "Magicians" "Gateway" and "Childhood's End". Since I couldn't post that, I posted the above instead.
4 (Asian guy) and 5 (young girl) linked up w/ a computer a few ep ago. 4 went thru his memories, and learned who he was, and what had happened. The girl got into "trouble" and was stuck in it, so 6 (Black Guy) went in, and at first went thru a couple of his memories, before finding 5 in someone else memory, that they couldn't figure out (it was 1"s, in which he lived the good life)
IDK if I say "really cool", but much better then season 1. They made a series based an action film, and put little or no action in the first season. They have added in action, and spread out the story this season.
Theda, I didn't think we agree on anything, yet, I too look forward to watching it on Monday( when it air's on Friday night)
I think Dark Matter was better this week then Killjoys.
No F-ing way. While a very good movie, it leaves out too many things that are important to the series as a whole. Too bad they never could do the other books justices.
I also like Jurassic Park and Forrest Gump the books better the film again there was so much that they cut, that was important to the story as a whole. And yes I read Gump and Co.
I would say the film, Blade Runner did a lot of things better then the book. To take it a step further, half of the films based off of RKD's work improved/updated his work. The other half failed to live up to his ideas.
This kept popping up on my Netflix, as something that I would like. So I hadn't planned on watching, as it knows nothing of what I want. I watch a British show like "Wire in the Blood" and it gives me every Brit show it has. I watch the "Arn" and 2009 "Girl w/ Dragon Tattoo" get nothing but Swedish movies, that don't even have sub titles.
Well I read somewhere that this was on the under the radar movies to watch.
I loved it. While most of the idea's behind this have been done before, it seemed to be fresh view of things.
