Recommended Posts

Continue praising Andor here. It deserves it. 

"My TV was built and purchased in 1995.  I have no mechanism to stream but my phone."

 

Scot WTF? Do we need to start a fund raiser to buy you a monitor??

Could we please use spoiler tags for spoilers? Thanks!

I mean, I don’t think Scot having an old TV counts as a spoiler… but I get that some people are particular.

Lol I love the old tech fanatics.

Fun fact a 24" CRT TV needs ~6 times the energy of a 24"LED  TV. You need to run a giant OLED on HDR mode to approach the energy consumption of bigger CRT TVs. Plasma TVs were inefficient but LEDs are awesome.

I guess people still have lightbulbs instead of LEDs too?

Edit:Lets start a go fund me for the planet to get him an efficient LED TV.

Heh. You never know, I want to be surprised! Will he surprise us and get a state-of-the-art huge ass tv?

No, someone in the old thread posted a spoiler and I'm just suggeesting we use spoiler tags next time... preemptively.

Scot,

 

Buy a HDMI2AV converter and an appropriate cable for your phone (USB-C or Lightning, depending on age and model probably) that converts to HDMI. Plug phone in to converter, plug composite cables into TV, and away you go.

Or get a Fire Stick or Roku or something else of that sort instead.

I would just advise not getting a "black friday deal" on some no-name TV. My dad had one break a few weeks ago after less than two years. Crazy. I can't remember the brand but it was something I'd never heard of that he got on black friday at a wall mart.

What do you mean by spoilers? As a discussion thread for a show that's airing i think it's fair game to discuss an episode as soon as it's out.

I think Scot should skip the LED and go straight to a projector system with a 80 ft screen he can unreel outside his house, and entertain the neighbourhood kids with scary movies from the 80s.

We have a neighbor who will watch films with his kids in their front yard using a projector like that.  They started doing that during COVID lockdown.  I thought it was really clever.  :)

Having caught up now...does anyone else get Season 1 Westworld vibes from the atmosphere of Andor...?

I didn't really get that vibe at all. Westworld was always a lot... flashier, and much more mystery-oriented.

They were okay.  I wasn’t really thrilled by the animation.  Andor on the other hand is awesome.  :)

How many years is it since the Clone Wars tv show came out? And they still haven't worked out how to make characters run realistically without looking like puppets on strings.

On that, on the suggestion earlier I started to watch Clone Wars in chronological order, based off lists I found on the web. It feels frankly bizarre that I am watching episodes from the third season before the first at times. I don't understand how viewers reacted to what they were seeing when this all came out.

Either way, I still think it's visually one of the ugliest shows I've ever seen, the animation and visuals are horrific, proper nightmare stuff. The story is at least coming together a little bit more than before and I feel a bit more engaged having watched some more coherent episodes early on.

What it does remind me of is Gerry Andersons Thunderbirds, the crappy looking puppet show from the 60s / 70s. Or actually even Terrahawks, a terrifying show I watched growing up.

I finally watched the last two episodes and caught up on the other SW thread. Now, I'm deeply disturbed.

Scot: how can you watch all these streaming shows on your phone?!? You can get a decent sized tv (in comparison to whatever followed you from 1995) for under $200.

It's like Scot is channeling the low tech ethic of Star Wars. Sure it's spaceships and laser beams and aliens...but sometimes you just have to pull the lever manually to fire the giant, moon sized death ray...no touch screens here!

He likes what he likes, folks, and maybe has better uses to put $200 to. That said, I do think for about  $20-$25 he could watch it on his TV as I suggested above!

Speaking of Andor, saw this quote from Denise Gough (Dedra Meero):
