    Upcoming TV Series of 2018/2019 - Your most anticipated shows

    I'm really looking forward to s4 of the Expanse on Amazon.... I'm hoping that it'll be as seemless as possible... ... The Watchmen on HBO has some great potential...

    Atwood's 'The Handmaid’s Tale' on Hulu

    tru dat.... Evangelism and fascism are first cousins... and America --already the most religious country in western civilization-- has taken a pronounced step towards erasing the wall between church and state... as I type this, we are somewhere between House of Cards and handmaids Tale...

    Watched, Watching & Rewatch Redux

    right?... it feels like this show is running in sand. ... Chris Pine is always terrific, and I think India eisley is going to be a star... but I would just love if this got going.... Also... We started watching Picnic at Hanging Rock,,, only 2 episodes in... it is really weird....lol

    Watched, Watching & Rewatch Redux

    It is a seriously F'ed up flick....lol... Guy Pierce is a world-class prick.... also, a couple of GoT castings in a western.... kind of counter-intuitive...lol
  5. S1 was a huge disappointment ... I don;t have much faith that this'll get better... but I'll watch because I'm both an asshole, and a TV junkie...

    Star Wars Thread: I KNOW WHAT THAT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm down on this entire franchise... after TESB, it went seriously downhill, and ventured into they eye-rolling absurd...it's frustrating because there have been glimpses of brilliance... Rogue One was terrific... but starting with the Ewoks, it has been almost as if they've purposely tried to disappoint their fans, knowing that we'll go to the movies regardless (they are right) and sacrifice good story telling for being able to sell plushies in the Disney Store... Kiddie Annakin was a terrible decision, and made the whole ep1 story just plain stupid... for the life of my I don;t understand why they didn;t make him a late-teen, Young adult (like Luke) so that everything --including his romance with Amadala-- would make sense... but no. ... Yet almost everyone loved the Darth Maul fight at the end... did they learn from that.?.. again, no. ... and then there is Jar Jar... The Annakin/Obi Wan fight was great... but insofar as the prequel trilogy goes, it was too little too late... Then there are these last few movies... other than Rogue One, it's like they're made-for-broadcast-TV level writers mixed in with massive budgets... plot holes you can drive a death star through and jaw-dropping implausibilities... TFA was terrible... TLJ was laughably abysmal... but they had cool-looking ships and light sabers, so yay. They had a good rookie season (the frst 2 movies)... and after that, the franchise has been hitting like a utility infielder who hit one game winning home run (Rogue One) in the past few years.

    Counterpart Starz Series (SPOILERS)

    I hope ... I saw that they're shopping it... but i agree with Starz cancelling too quickly.... Magic City could have used a 3rd and final season to wrap up... Cinemax too... cancels too quickly.... they are the opposite of Showtime.

    R,I.P. Thread

    For my entire childhood... Frank Robinson was #3 on the all-time home run list, behind Ruth and Mays... well before the league was watered down.... Albert Finney was prolific... serious screen presence... Bourne villain, Bond ally, Hercule Piorot and Big Fish...

    US Politics: The Accountability Problem

    It's truly amazing... as fast as no/non religion is rising in this country, the power of the O.G. zombie --even on the left-- is still pronounced... the USA is the most religious country in western civilization, and --IMO-- it is our undoing.

    Shows like Discovery of Witches?

    On the IMDB page, the first 6 shows in the "More Like This" section are Legacies, Siren, Midnight Texas, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Tidelands, and The Passage.....
  13. I had no idea this show is based on a book series... Judging by this thread, apparently they are pretty good...now I'll have to read them...lol

    Watched, Watching & Rewatch Redux

    Oh... and we also watched the ABC murders... John Malkovich as Hercule Poirot... it was "meh"... but at least it was only 3 episodes... worth it if you're looking for a short watch to get you to your next binge
