    R,I.P. Thread

    Dirty Mary Crazy Larry was my first favorite movie... I was in the 7th grade...lol

    The Boys (Amazon)

    I like Hoover from Preacher as the marketing dude... it's like he's on a little Garth Ennis streak....lol I also don;t get that so many people think that Karl urban is not cutting it.... I think he's terrific.... The only nit pick I have w/ the show is that they seem to have bypassed some of the other supe groups like the teenage Kix, and G Wiz and just gone right for the feud w/ the Seven... but maybe they've just re-sequenced the books for this iteration

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Midsommar Night Blues

    We saw Hobbes & Shaw today... here's the thing, its not really an action movie... recently --over the past few years-- there's been a new genre that I call "self aware action comedy"... Ryan Reynolds (who is also in this movie) and the Rock are naturals at this.... with that in mind, the movie was hilarious... I mean, the action sequences are absurd, but in this context, they work, (physics be damned) whereas in the Fast & Furious flicks, (which take themselves entirely too serious) they are just --IMO-- friggin stupid... ... and Vanessa Kirby is fantastic

    (Spoilers) Mr. Robot final season

    I never do this, but I think I might go on a re-watch binge before the final season... there are so many moving parts in this show I don;t want to be left not remembering who someone is, or trying to play catch-up.... not with this show.... Said it before... this is the best show on basic cable since Breaking Bad
  5. we'll do this... we already have --along with a full cable package-- Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Epix, and we were planning to do D+ anyway.... we'll use ESPN+ for hockey, and when guests are over...lol.. Needless to say, we watch a shit ton of TV

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Midsommar Night Blues

    Does anyone else on this thread have Epix?... Is anyone else watching Perpetual Grace LTD?.... damn this was hilarious and awesome.... S1 just finished.... this will definitely make my top 10

    Netflix's The OA: Part II

    Just an observation, and I could be (and probably am) wrong.... But this often seems to happen when shows take too long between seasons... especially when the time gap is between S1&2.... for instance, I doubt Taboo will get a S3... we'll see, of course... but after how S1 was so popular, I would bet dollars to donuts that the lag time killed this show...

    Greatest Band Ever?

    It should be obvious to every non communist....

    Legion (FX's Marvel tv series) [SPOILERS]

    Good ones, I'd wager. It was really cool to see Jean Smart again... I thought she was done on this show... glad they could work her in without it seeming contrived. I also dug the Syd backstory...

    The Boys (Amazon)

    Sorry... I meant the trades... there were 12 of those, and that's what he signed at the Dynamite Booth at a now defunct NJ comic Expo...

    The Boys (Amazon)

    I hear ya... and you're not wrong... I never viewed him as sympathetic though... pathetic maybe, but a loser with powers.... and I think that the loss of that stupid head thing he wore in the comic is a big improvement... LOL Side note... of all the dumb, nerdy shit I own, one of my favs is that I have all 12 issues of The Boys autographed by Garth Ennis... who was a delight in person.

    The Boys (Amazon)

    I think I liked this more than most on the thread so far... we polished it off in a day.... I thought urban was terrific, and Starr was friggin fantastic... a completely charming sociopath... I read the comics, and I was cool with the changes, especially the Deep...

    Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (spoilers)

    I really dug it... but stuff like this is subjective.... I will say this though.... Margaret Qualley (Pussycat) is going to be a star

    Lee Child’s Jack Reacher tv series on Amazon

    Amazon might not have netflix' money....or the amount of shows.... but they are choosing their properties wisely.

    Star Trek: Picard

    While I agree with this, I think we have to acknowledge that the Star trek we grew up with has already changed (probably forever) probably because people in a board room decided that a franchise predicated on peace is unsustainable in this entertainment marketplace.... the sad truth is, they actually might be right....
