  1. Along with our regular rotation, We finished up Frontier S2, which got better as it progressed... Now we are 8 episodes into Shut Eye S2... which we are digging also... next up, the Crown, S2
  2. Is there another video game that's been translated to television?... i know that the game was based on short stories... but thus far all I've seen are movie adaptations (most of which fail terribly)... I am curious to see how this does... my guess is that TV is a better fit... certainly i think Warcraft would have benefited from from a 10-episode season rather than cramming all that narrative into 2 hours...
  3. Ha!.... Lying Cat avatar = awesome.
  4. We just got back from the "Walker Stalker" con in NJ.... I'll tell ya, if the show losing its popularity, you couldn;t tell by the amount of people there... the place was mobbed... But as far as who dies in the mid-season finale...
  5. Yeah, I agree... simply by virtue of his casting, Jackman re-defined the character... so the movie Wolverine was very different from the source comics... If and when he gets recast, there will be a certain amount of negative backlash by those who only know the character via the movies... but if the actor can pull it off, the comic readers will help smooth it over, eventually... Kind of like how Trevor Noah took over for Jon Stewart... at first everyone hated him... but as he made the daily show his own, he's won people over...
  6. Best of Luck Theda!!!!
  7. I don't think the "older generation" is horrified, as much as some of our seniors simply don;t "get it".... before the Sopranos ushered in this era of TV... shows in my dad's generation always wrapped up in an hour, and things always worked out in the end.... when i was a kid we watched happy days and welcome Back Kotter every Tuesday night... shows like Bonanza, and Adam 12 were the only types of drama available... Some older folks simply don't have the patience to sit through these longer arcs.... let alone the nudity...
  8. I love Star Trek.... i love Quentin Tarrantino... for the life of me I can't picture the two together.... it's like putting marshmallow on a Filet Mignon...
  9. I remember when I first started watching this show... It was the first SyFy show that I really liked....and its why I started this thread.... since then they've debuted the magicians, and the Expanse... but 12 Monkeys is a good show...
  10. How could you leave out Johnny Bench?... he was their best player!!!....lol ... We are starting Frontier, S2... It's been two weeks since we went to see Justice League.... and the wife needs her Jason Momoa fix....lol...even though she'll see him Saturday at Ace Comic Con
  11. We also loved this... I watch in dubs because i'm n impatient asshole who would zone-out otherwise... its kind of like watching a Godzilla movie.... only with an amazingly written story... and a really terrific ending, and a set-up for next season...
  12. It seems on the surface to be a convenient piece of writing... I hope there's more to it than that.
  13. It might seem slow/weird at first.... but as you start to piece together whats happening it becomes really good...
  14. We are finishing up Dark on Netflix... Holy shit this show is really good... It's like stranger Things but much, much more serious... the young people in the main plot are older...we're watching it in dubbed in English, rather than subtitles...
  15. Exactly! ... But it's even more absurd than that... Say, for instance, that Garth Ennis or Frank Millar take a temporary departure from their regular M.O. and decide to write a novel (as many GN authors do)... as it stands, they would have to get a literary agent to shop the book to traditional publishers like Simon and Schuster, or Penguin... but if one of the indie comic companies that they already write for --and whose customers are already familiar with their work-- were able to publish their book.... it would be a win/win.
