Sellsword (3/8)

  1. Pretty sure that is the most glory hunting thing I've ever read. Then further exacerbated by the presumption of referring to Man City as 'City'. Two middling, non-entities that have been juiced by theft and petro-fascists, respectively.
  2. What do you mean by that, mate? I watched the first season and liked it well enough but not sufficiently so to continue onward. Now I wonder if maybe I should reconsider.
  3. I love Succession and really enjoy Yellowstone even if it is pulpy. 1883, after a first few jumbled episodes, turns into a story about a superhero teenage girl. There is nothing on this earth that you can think of, that she will not turn out to do better than most anyone else. Which is a shame because the actress clearly has presence but the way her character is written is just hopeless. I finished the season mostly because Sam Elliot is in it but I'm not sure he is convinced by it himself. LaMonica Garrett is great though. Tim McGraw passable, Faith Hill is not an actress.
  4. Reading LV's post in full, I caught myself thinking that is a show I'd like to watch. Only to remember I did watch it and it was pretty awful. It looks pretty good, to be fair, and the casting is decent. The characters are not though - simplistic and unconvicing. It takes a very creative approach to history too but I suppose that is inevitable. If you go into it expecting and wanting an undemanding soap it might work better. I thought it would be something more substantial.
  5. Well, catching up on this thread has certainly spoiled my day. My ambition now is to avoid the show altogether but I fear when the time comes, I'll succumb and, almost certainly, get much more upset.
  6. Against my better judgement, I really do enjoy Yellowstone and finished season 4 a while back. It's ludicrous, over the top, and completely unbelievable. Lots of compelling characters and a very strong cast, filled with manly-men and tough-as-nail women. Unless you are from out-of-state, in which case you are a wimp. I did read somewhere it's been called Succession for red-state America. I can see how an argument can be crafted if you are so inliced but I think it's unfair. Or, if it is, then it is for old school, small-c conservative, red-state America. PS. I did not know that Tyler Sheridan was that handy with horses (I actually had to look it up to confirm it really was him). Impressive.
  7. Marco's end is one of the few things that annoyed me in both book and show. Too quick, too easy. No time for the fact he has lost to sink in. Most unsatisfying.
  8. EW interview with Naren Shankar. I chose to believe in a continuation based on that. The Expanse showrunner answers series finale burning questions
  9. Happy they stuck the landing and I will really miss this show. It ended well but it somehow seems inconceivable there won't be a continuation of some sort.
  10. Just noticed a Ray Donovan film is out. I had no idea one was even in the making. Anyone seen it and, if so, is it a worthwhile effort? I liked the show but last couple of seasons weren't great.
  11. Couldn't agree more. Great, great TV. Probably the best show I've seen since Chernobyl.
  12. The show is great. Outstanding even. It's very much an adaptation, though, so some significant changes from the source material but, to my mind, it's done exceedingly well.
  13. Why wouldn't they? Due to the wages? If he is successful, the negotiated buy-out clause is supposed to be £35-40m which is hardly an obstacle. Seems a good deal for Villa. Try-before-you-buy and pay less than 50% of his current wages.
  14. Yeah, it's gets more and more pulpy but it's a guilty pleasure of mine, I can't help it. Men are men, and tough as nails. Women are women, and also tough as nails. They sure breed 'em differently up there in Montana. Anyone seen the prequel, 1883?
