    THE PUNISHER now a Netflix series

    While I rarely "dislike" anything from marvel, post Iron-man 1 on (iron Fist S1 and the Inhumans being the only two exceptions) ... I readily admit my bias... I thought this was exceptionally good. I just hope that Disney takes Berenthal's casting (in particular) into account when they do whatever the hell it they have planned for these properties... I doubt they will, but he's great in the role. A little on the small side maybe, but otherwise perfect.
  2. Margo is the best part of a great cast... whenever she's on I'm laughing.

    NFL 2019: Wild Card, Mitches!

    If KC doesn't make a half time adjustment for NE's running game, they're in for a long evening... they are lucky to only be down 2 touchdowns

    Star Trek Discovery #3

    This annoyed me to no end.... "Hey , BTW, i joined that super-secret kill squad that everyone denies the existence of, but wink wink we all know about.".... just yuck.... At this point, you either have to bail on the CBS all-access Treks, or accept that they're resetting everything... and none of that even compares to retro-fitting in Spocks human adopted sister... there's no reverence for the cannon, or respect for the fans.... so I'll watch, but Trek will never be the same again...

    Cartoons you'd like to see remade?

    Any cartoon I watched when I was a kid, they've re-done, and ruined... Bugs Bunny, Scooby Doo, and even Ren & Stimpy... So the only things I can think might benefit from a modernization might be something like Thundercats... maybe some of the superhero cartoons... But if they attempt to ruin Rocko's modern Life, I'm going to fire off an angry letter.

    Snowfall - spoilers

    Loved the first episode... FX is really pushing the envelope with this show, but I don't think they could pull it off otherwise. It's about the early days of the crack cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles .... and the CIA's involvement while trying to fund the Contras in Nicaragua ... it takes place in the early 1980s..... during the Reagan administration... Created by John Singleton... it looks like it has major potential. .... the lead.... Damson Idris... is a really talented young actor.... the show hinges on him... and he really pulls it off.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Art of the Rewatch edition

    wrapped up "Informer" on Amazon before Punisher drops tomorrow.... we chose it because it was only 6 episode... It wasn't bad... I give it a solid B
  9. Holy shit this made me laugh. I find Ivar unbearable. His character is written so 2 dimensional he's like a comic book villain ... and I really wanted to see what was up with the spawn.

    Snowfall - spoilers

    Tell me about it....lol... when i started this thread I figured it would be 20 pages deep by now.... this is a vastly under rated show.

    HBO's Sharp Objects

    Did I read an above post correctly?... there's going to be a season 2 of Sharp Objects?... I thought it all wrapped up.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Art of the Rewatch edition

    we threw Project Blue Book into our rotation.... watching episode 2 as i type this.... all I'll say is that its Aiden Gillan's least annoying role so far....lol

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    I personally thought that the first 2 episodes crushed it.... the ominous tension that hung in the air every moment... Mahershala Ali is a monster... there's 6 episodes left, but I'm already all in... I had a feeling that this was personal for HBO... having a dud is one thing (vinyl) ... but S1 was soooo good, they weren't going to let a sub-par S2 stand.... this is probably a matter of pride as much as anything else...

    Outlander II: Sing me a Song...

    I fond Roger as annoying as many of you do... but less so since it dawned on me that he's from bout 50 years in our past... his Victorian views on sex and marriage --although still cringe-worthy-- are slightly less so when put into that context... I'd been judging him by 2019 standards... I mean, he;s still a douche... but perhaps not a king kamehameha douche But I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I get a little joy from every beating he gets...lol
  15. I'm looking forward to the marvel/disney X-men films.... it's not like Fox didn't F&*% the whole thing up anyway... I'm fine keeping their stories separate provided that they acknowledge that they all exist....not being able to say the word "mutant" was always just stupid and as far as the FF go.... they belong in an around the avengers... with a Spiderman crossover... maybe Black Panther and Storm....

    X-men the last stand; gays need a cure?

    This is indeed a baffling thread... the cognitive contortions it takes to arrive at some of these conclusions is awe inspiring.

    Hungover... I just discovered Pluto TV on Roku... and the MST3K channel.

    X-men the last stand; gays need a cure?

    ..... and all this time I thought that the X-Men were a metaphor for stuttering gingers... boy was i off.

    Denis Villenueve to direct Dune

    I just really hope that they don't do that inner monologue thing.... "I will bend like a reed in the wind".... just yuck...

    The Orville Season 2

    right... every once in a while TOS would do a comedy episode like Trouble with Tribbles, or A Piece of the Action.... The Orville is more in line with those, only with TNG style aliens and uniforms....

    MCUniverse- Captain Marvel Rises!

    judging by the trailer, they did a terrific job making Sam Jackson look young... End Game will be interesting insofar as it will dictate what remains of the MCU until they reboot the whole thing....

    The Orville Season 2

    I like this show a lot more than I thought I would... granted, its not A-list TV, but its a fun watch... it's utterly derivative of Star Trek, but it's self aware insofar as it realizes when its silly.... there will be stretches when there's no attempt at humor, and suddenly something absurd happens... but what i think makes this show enjoyable is that Seth McFarlane is a complete nerd, and this is less of a satire and more a labor of love...

    Counterpart Starz Series (SPOILERS)

    That's what I love about this show... much like the Shadow reveal, the indigo reveal will be epic... and I'm dying to find out who and what is "management"...

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Art of the Rewatch edition

    Happy was fantastic... after the first episode --and the tedious introduction of Patton Oswalt's animated donkey-- I was hooked... I almost bailed, and I'm glad I didn't.

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

    I thought all in all that 2018 was a meh year for TV... there were several gems of course, but there were stretches where nothing was reeling me in.... but 2019 looks really, really promising...
