    The Deuce

    And so overdue. But damn if Carr didn't play him well. He was a vulnerable monster who knew he had become irrelevant. He could have actually made the $50k he boasted about to the other pimps and he still would have resented the deal. Loved Barbara confronting Larry like she was going to beat his ass. And Darlene having to tell him why she asked about Melissa.

    Well that they couldn't do, since the shows hadn't even started production until after Avengers came out in 2012. I was hoping we'd get an episode of The Defenders featuring flashbacks to The Incident. Around that time I think Jessica would have still been under Killgrave's control. And Danny of course was off in Kun-Lun.

    Everything you say is correct, but also the Disney sale happened. Part of that deal was that the movie arm of Marvel was made it's own thing and Feige no longer had to answer to Ike Pearlmutter. The whole shifting of Inhumans from a movie to a TV show with an IMAX premier happened right around that same time.

    I don't think the the people at Marvel Studios really consider the shows to be MCU canon to begin with. The most important detail of that story about the Loki and Scarlet witch shows was that they would be the first shows to be produced by Marvel Studios (under Feige) instead of the TV branch. The reason for coming out and actually saying that they're non-canon or in another universe is that it lets Marvel keep making shows for other channels if they want. They'd just be more open about how they aren't in the same universe that the Avengers as moviegoers know them are operating in. Plus advertising-wise they may want to hype the fact that these will be the first shows that actually relate to the movies in any meaningful way. Loki isn't going to TAHITI and then everyone's just gonna not tell the Avengers he's alive because....why again? I remember Coulson specifically tells Sif not to tell Thor he's alive again. What a dick.

    Yeah, you know that's coming. As soon as they mentioned doing Loki and Scarlet Witch shows with the movie actors. I'm guessing they'll just say all the old tv shows were in an alternate universe that split off around the time of The Incident?
  6. Plodding is a great word to describe the first game (or second one if you count Red Dead Revolver) and at least the opening of this one. The first two missions are basically an interactive movie. But the voice acting (Dutch especially) is great as as the graphics and level of detail. I'm exited about the lack of fast travel. I always tell myself I'm not gonna use it in games like this but I have no self control.

    I'm not sure, it would depend on the terms of the deal. I'm sure they included one of those inactivity clauses but they may have also reserved the rights to use or reclaim the characters at any time. When they made the Sony and Fox deals they were just a comic company desperate for cash. When they made the Netflix deal I'm sure they had a lot more negotiating power. But yeah it's highly unlikely we'll ever see the Netflix shows on the Disney streaming service.
  8. I played about an hour of Red Dead last night. It starts slow but looks great. I do with they'd let you remap buttons though. Isn't X/Square usually reload? Having to hit B/Circle for that is really throwing me off. If anyone's bored at work waiting to get home and play it may pay to read wikipedia summary of the first game's plot to remind yourself who a couple of the characters were.
  9. Not sure if this counts but I assume we'll have Shuri as Black Panther pretty early in A4.

    True. That film is famous for giving people ideas.

    Daredevil Season 3 [SPOILERS - Page 3 and beyond]

    One more minor thing (sorry the episodes blur together in a binge but this was like 3/4 through) But again, great season. And now I have a Halloween costume that just requires black pants, two black shirts and some rope.

    The Deuce

    Vinny and Frankie are apparently based on a set of real life twins one of whom's stories this is based on. At least that was the justification for having two Francos in the run up to season one. In all the interviews I've read and after the episode things it seems like Simon is unwilling to reveal the real inspiration for either Vinny or the High Hat. Which is funny cause it seems like it'd be pretty easy for the mob to figure out which twins he was talking about.

    Loving the show, but I laughed a bit in episode 12:

    I still need to watch sunday's episode but here's an article about Emily Meade (Lori) getting HBO to change the way they film sex scenes: https://www.rollingstone.com/tv/tv-features/the-deuce-intimacy-coordinator-hbo-sex-scenes-739087/ It also makes it sound like Deadwood is already filming which was news to me.
