    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

    That and tits up. That's all I need for a teaser trailer. Well, okay, a release date would've been nice. But I'm still hyped.
  2. Damnit. I don't know how I feel about this. I hope the showrunners know for sure going in to this next 13 episode season so we don't get a cliffhanger that never gets resolved or just a meh ending like Agent Carter. But it sounds like ABC is curious in experimenting with the Netflix Marvel model by doing 13 episodes released int he summer. Now if we could only get an AOS & Defenders crossover.
  3. Stranger things are afoot at the Starcourt Mall, y'all! That add was spot on. I haven't thought about Wicks N Sticks in forever. Dang. I never would've thought that, but now you've got me wondering. It does kinda sound like it could be him putting on his best 80s American announcer voice.
  4. Clark Greg directing is great, but I've got mixed feelings about Coulson returning to the team after that send off with Mae. I'm not against it, but it'd have to be done the right way. Just not sure what that is.

    The Walking Dead: Because Season Ate Nine (Comic Spoiler Thread)

    That trailer left me feeling less than enthused, but knowing this will be Lincoln's last season should (hopefully) make the actual episodes more interesting than that trailer leads us to believe.
  6. I'll be honest, when I saw your avatar I seriously considered her. But I think she's more of a "top 10" than top 5 for me. I do love me some Tina Turner though--even Beyond Thunderdome Tina. Two things. One, Lady Gaga made it on to my list the same way Madonna made it on to someone else's list: talent is fairly subjective and rankings such as these are extremely subjective. Two, how's about throwing up your own list of superb songstresses before you go planting question marks next to mine. :p I don't know. But it's a darn shame that ya did.
  7. The "Best" Voices: Adele, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, & Aretha Franklin. My personal favorite voices: Amy Winehouse, Adele, Lady Gaga, Nina Simone, & Natalie Merchant.

    Luke Cage II - No Spoilers

    So I finished S2 a few days ago on a long flight. A guy a row over from me asked me what I thought of it and I let out a sigh. Before I could speak he said, "Too repetitive, huh?" Yep. There was way too much CW level heel dragging and melodrama this season. We both agreed the final act of the final episode was intriguing though--enough to bring us back for S3. Not sure if this writing team can really pull it off, but maybe. Maybe. S2E1-7 spoilery stuff: S2 E8-13 spoilery comments:

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Prequel

    I agree. I saw BR2049 on an IMAX screen and was captivated. Even when Leto's boring ass character was on screen. However, I tried to watch it on HBO a few weeks ago and got bored. I've only got a 46" TV, so maybe an upgrade is in order for me, too.

    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    I'm not sure if anyone has put forth this theory here yet, but I read this theory elsewhere that kinda made sense. What if the Delos execs know about some unstoppable future cataclysmic event that's likely to wipe out all/most of humanity (meteorite, famine, etc), so that's why they're so keen on saving the Forge & it's data? Didn't Delos also tell MIB in S2E4 that he's "dying" of a disease he cut funding for research on? Delos would've likely actually really died 25-30 years prior. to that episode though. Maybe they eliminated "all diseases" within that 25-30 year time span though.

    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    Yeah, it's set up to look like the two red gloved lackey's will try to revive/save Maeve in the park for S3. However, I'll gladly take the bet of all the money in your pockets that the writers are gonna make that a switcheroo and Host-Hale will end up being the "real" Maeve.

    Cloak & Dagger on (dramatic pause) Freeform *Spoilers*

    Glad you're enjoying the show too, @JEORDHl! I said it before but I'll say it again--I'm shocked by how much I like this show. Based on the promo pics and trailer I was ready to skip this, but it's definitely the show I most look forward to each week. And if they keep up this level of quality it'll probably make my Top 10 list of shows for the year. Nerdist is apparently doing an after show for this, so here's the one on S2E4 if you're interested. It has the showrunner and actress that play's Tandy's mom. (Who I just realized was Janet on the FX show Rescue Me!)

    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    This is a pretty great video from Vanity Fair with Nolan & Joy about S2E4 that's basically a director's commentary. Nolan also touches on some of the philosophical questions and moments in the S2 finale in an interesting way, which is something that frustrates me about the show--off camera Nolan raises some good points and questions, however, these philosophical points aren't really coming across as well as they could be in the show. I thought for sure Maeve would be one of the cores/brainballs in Halores' purse. However, some people on Reddit are arguing Maeve will still be "in the park" in S3. But outta the five you know one is Bernardold. Another is likely her dad as it's the encryption key, and I still think she took Maeve for her "powers." As for the other two--meh. Lisa Joy has already teased "Who is in Host-Hale?" will be one of the "mysteries" for next season. My initial guess is Dolores replicated her own brain ball. But it's all a Dolores shit show from here on out. I am finding the motivations of a genocidal AI difficult to get excited enough to speculate on. I feel like Dolores is basically a supervillain now--Agent SMith from the Matrix.

    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    S2E10 Mixed bag of feelings here, but for the most part it's frustration. I feel like Nolan&Joy are aiming to discuss some great philosophical questions--What makes us "human"? Is there a soul? What is reality? Is immortality achievable, and if so, do we lose out humanity in attaining it? However, the answers presented and even the execution of the questions themselves are uneven, to put it kindly. I know from interviews Nolan & Joy did back for S1 that they were interested in a show where humans weren't the protagonists--but it feels like they spent most of S2 trying to get me to not root for Dolores. And they did a pretty good job of it because I was hoping through the whole third act that she was really gone. I'm just not really all about rooting for a character that wants to destroy humanity. And that speech she gave "Bernardold" at the end was just further examples of the kind of plot hole filled writing S2 has been about. Okay, that video helped A LOT with explaining some things I was questioning about that post-credit ending. I wonder why it wasn't included in the "extras" section on HBO GO, though? All I saw was a one minute bts on the director of the episode. :/ I know how I feel--like it's dime store philosophizing. A human being is 10k lines of code? Meh. The WestWorld writers must be a bunch of misanthropes. Did anyone else think the code in the books looked like the sheet music for those automated pianos, or was it just me?

    Cloak & Dagger on (dramatic pause) Freeform *Spoilers*

    It's pretty much just the two of us talking in here, @Bastard of Bostonbut should you put "spoilers" in the title anyway? S1E4 Yes, the origin of Cloak's cloak was something truly, inherently New Orleans. At first I as rolling my eyes and thinking, "Ugh. Looks like whoever wrote this episode watched Treme on HBO." But it was handled really well. This is maybe the first thing about the show (other than S1E3's voodoo aunty visit) that truly ties a character to the setting in NOLA.
