  1. The show and it's finale are pretty good. It actually gets stronger after the first season as well if I remember it right (and I liked the first season). It's basically a bunch of pirate and British factions maneuvering against each other with constant machiavellian politics and plot twists.
  2. One of the great accomplishments I've had in TV viewing is to not have a seen a single episode of Dexter after the Season 4 finale. Perfect ending as far as I'm concerned. The Shield is definitely at the top for me and I'm amazed how well it's held up over time. There was a GRRM post several years ago after the BSG & Lost finale where he commented how Hollywood needs to learn how to write an ending. Still seems true today. Also, while I have the The Wire high on my list for series finale, I don't actually think it's really that great. It doesn't seem different from the other season finales.. it's just knowing that it's the last episode is what hits you with nostalgia. It's not really about the episode itself. Yeah, I didn't think the GoT finale was bad but I didn't find it very entertaining either. It's just meh to me. It's funny.. I watched every episode of John From Cincinnati like 4 times each while it aired live. I haven't re-watched a single episode of Season 8 GoT and I don't even feel compelled to re-watch the series finale despite it probably being the only ending to ASOIAF I'll ever get. Count me among the "Did the power go out?" crowd. But in hindsight, I've warmed a lot more to the Sopranos finale than how I felt initially that Sunday night. No one -- not even Chase, will convince me that Tony survives that scene.

    NBA Playoffs 2019 - Kawhi So Serious?!

    Ha! I lived in Northern Virginia about 5 (maybe 6) years ago when the DC BwB was going strong so I posted far more then than I do now. I'm actually a Knicks fan..... but having grown up in Brooklyn and with the Knick's organization as it is.. very much considering switching allegiances to Brooklyn. Growing up I always wanted a major team for Brooklyn but switching allegiances rubs me so wrong. That said, I've watched every Warrior's game here for the last 2 seasons and they are fun to watch.

    NBA Playoffs 2019 - Kawhi So Serious?!

    Ha, I called Warriors by 3 at the half (I was betting 4 before the game started against the 7 in the official spread) in front of a packed bar in Berkeley. I expect Warriors in 5 with Portland taking one at home. @Triskele dunno how it makes you feel but amongst the diehard Warriors fans, born and bred in Oakland, Damian Lillard is a hometown hero here. Portland is the only team acceptable to win it all ( so long as they win it all) against the Warriors because of Lillard.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    I'm still amazed at Avatar's run and it not having been beaten by Infinity War or Endgame given the buildup and scale of the latter 2 movies. And also, I cannot stop thinking about this movie. I need to go watch it again and the playoffs are the only thing stopping me right now. The nostalgia of Cap, Thor and Tony's time travel scenes with their respective histories and losses was an absolutely great way to pay homage to the past. I don't give a shit about the logic of it. And Thanos transitioning to detroying all life was great as well as the shock of his defeat and ultimate death. We also got fight scenes in full armor and without the Infinity Stones since we've already seen that in Infinity War. The only downside to this movie imo is a lack of Natasha's funeral / memorial and a Red Skull-Captain America. I'm crossing my fingers for a 4 hour extended director's cut that has it. Hell, I'm willing to watch another hour of outtakes.

    It's amazing to me that when Cleveland came to Milwaukee a couple of years ago, I got tickets to watch LeBron and Giannis play for $6. Talk about leaps and bounds since then.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Getting Sneaky

    Just starting Sneaky Pete S3.. man I barely remember all the B plotlines and there's quite to be remembered. I remember having the same problem with S2.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Getting Sneaky

    Hehehe he.. your sentence reminded me of a scene with Paul Giammatti in Private Parts where Paul receives news to his chagrin that Howard Stern's ratings are even higher among his haters when compared to his supporters.

    Bosch... Amazon Original

    Finally finished it though I took my time. Very solid. I was surprised they: Major Season 4 spoilers.. sort Season 5 spoilers: I really did like the character interactions between Bosch and the lawyer and hired investigator.

    Upcoming TV Series of 2019/2020 - Your most anticipated shows

    Didn't even realize Sneaky Pete was starting up again. Amazon advertising fails to strike again! I finished the latest season of Bosch. I took my time with it on purpose instead of just outright binging the whole thing. I thought it would be hard to top the last season as it concludes a major story arc but this season was generally very solid. The story didn't go where I thought it was going to go but it holds a steady, entertaining pace without feeling like it drags.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    Goddamn.. saw it last night and it was glorious. The image where Cap has his broken shield, standing on the wasteland that was the Avengers headquarters and then having every goddamn superhero show up to "Avengers Assemble" was amazing (even if I think that line is stupid, it had to be done). I swear I was watching a comic book movie come to life. Loved Cap with Mjolnir and the Avenger relay race with the gauntlet. Great ending. Though I think they could have added one last scene where Cap returns the Soul Stone to Red Skull -- and that conversation leading to Cap's retirement and return to Peggy could have been cool. I didn't even feel the 3 hours go by..

    Pity Thread For Those Who Can't See Endgame Yet...

    I have successfully avoided all spoilers.. although YouTube with its recommendations system is very dangerous territory. I just have to get through tomorrow..

    Deadwood... the Film?

    Chills is right, especially when I heard Swearengen say 'cocksucker' again. I need one more blowjob monologue scene. And damn do they all look so old.

    MCUniverse: Cat Scratch Fever edition.

    Potential internet spoilers are terrifying me.. especially since I don't have a ticket yet. Question for those that have seen Endgame: I haven't seen Captain Marvel yet. Should I watch it first?
