  1. So much in this movie just made no sense... Rogue One remains the best --and only good-- thing they've done since the original trilogy... I am brokenhearted over how gratuitous and poorly written this franchise has become... I had high hopes after R1
  2. Out of boredom, I started watching Happy on Syfy.... I thought it would be really stupid.... and it kind of is... but its also hilarious.... "Look at his balls swinging like a watch" "Yeah. They are hypnotic."
  3. I'm curious to see how Jessica Jones will do post-Kilgrave... S1 had the benefit of a terrific villain... and if I'm not mistaken we still do not know who the S2 big bad will be...
  4. A really good premiere... While thus far, the USA network has mostly middling to blah shows (Queen of the South and Falling Water are not bad, but not great either... Shooter and Colony are hackneyed as hell... Mr. Robot is exceptionally good)... this one seems to have potential... it's set in depression era Iowa... its really gritty, and the pilot was devoid of stupidity... it stars --among others-- Christopher Heyerdahl (the Swede from Hell on Wheels)... Logan Marshall-Green (Quarry) ... Sarah Jones (Polly from Sons of Anarchy) ... and Killian Scott (Ripper Street) I know its early, but it's got potential to be more like Mr. Robot, and less like the new Kojack
  5. Of all the stupid things I've seen networks do.... changing this show from Tuesday to Thursday nights between episodes 4 and 5 is right up there... I found out by dumb luck... I am sure that a lot of people think they're on break for the holidays... and they'll bail.... out of sight, out of mind.
  6. I'm only 2 episodes into S2.... but Claire Foy is so damn good... it's like you can hear her internal monologue
  7. Fuck that was good... the post credit scene was a nice touch... So many reveals... This show makes me angry at everything else with bad/lazy writing...
  8. Oh. Joy. This show is just a wonderful mess.
  9. 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
  10. 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...
  11. Ha!.... Lying Cat avatar = awesome.
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. Best of Luck Theda!!!!
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. I know that we're only two Episodes in... but it's not bad so far... I'm encouraged that Syfy might begin to step up their game.... I know that a couple of episodes of one show does not a good network make... but its better than if it fell completely flat. Anyone else see this?
  19. I made an observation recently..... Dark Horse Comics, along with their graphic novel brands, also publish novels (and other types of books) under the imprint M Press Books. ... http://www.mpressbooks.com/ ... however other indie comic publishers like Image, IDW, Valiant, or Dynamite do not... I get why Marvel and DC opt out of this endeavor... they're uber successful at what they do.... but with the print on demand technology available, and most books being sold via Amazon anyway, one might think that the indie brands are leaving money on the table... and with so many graphic novel and comic writers also venturing into traditional novels, one might think that rather than allowing their artists to seek other publishers when they pen a manuscript, that they'd capitalize on them having an existing audience. You never know when you might have the next Neil Gaiman on your hands...
  20. 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
  21. 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...
  22. It seems on the surface to be a convenient piece of writing... I hope there's more to it than that.
  23. It might seem slow/weird at first.... but as you start to piece together whats happening it becomes really good...
  24. 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...
  25. 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.
