Tried a few new shows with the wife last night.

JUPITER'S LEGACY: I have the comic, but less for Millar than for Quitely's art...the story was meh at best. The tv show amped up the hokeyness, and it was not for us.

STARTUP: Holy shit this was bad. We noted that Adam Brody and Martin Freeman (both of whom we like as actors) were in it, so we checked it out. Watched 20-ish minutes of the first episode in which there were THREE sex scenes. It's not like we are prudes, but only Sex scene 1 was plot-contingent, the other two were gratuitous nonsense. And if you spend almost half of the first 20 of your pilot episode on needless sex scenes, then I don't know what the fuck your show is about. We turned it off. Awful.

THE CIRCLE: This is some trashy reality show about faking or making an online persona for others in a game show manner and be the most popular? We gave it ten minutes (wife likes this kind of TV normally; not I)....and bailed.

Ended up back on SUPERSTORE which is slice of life, not terribly funny, but still entertaining TV.

There's shit all on Netflix right now. SHADOW & BONE was it.

Wife has watched almost all of it and she quite enjoys it, and I catch the odd episode now and again and I enjoy it enough. I'll probably go back at some point and watch the whole thing on my own now too.

I watched all of Jupiter's Legacy and was left with a feeling of not knowing if the show was bad, or that I just did not like it.
Screw you all, and have a nice day!

Finished the last and final season of Baskets. Great show for you guys looking for something out of the ordinary. It ended really sweet and hopeful, with a little dash of melancholy. Got a bit of the case of the sobs when the final scene ended, not gonna lie.

Dale really stole the scenes he appeared in - "You boys circumcised, or you got them hippy wieners?"

But Louie Anderson as Christine Baskets is the role that holds the show together through all four seasons. Such an iconic performance.

And finally

I'm watching the animated Invincible TV-show on Amazon Prime.

I've never read the comic but the show seems good. Not sure how close the adaption is to the comic but it's got an interesting style. It seems part meta commentary on superheroes told in a light humorous style but also horrifically, violently brutal and bloody.


you are in for a ride.


I'm a bit suspicious of the plot.

Spoilers for the first 3 episodes.

The comics have advanced all the way to the end of the story.
I can tell you if you want but it is beyond spoileriffic for the floppies and will likely spoil elements of the show even if they go a different route w the story.

Watched the first few episodes of show titled Cruel Summer.

eh, not all that great, but there's something cheesy and corny enough about it that I sorta want to continue on.

The setting is it takes place over the summers of 1993/1994/1995.

This is what I've been following so far.

1993 - Nerdy, socially awkward girl and her social outcast friends kick off the summer. Have fun list of things to do. Run into hot, popular girl at mall. Nerdy girl has that look like she wants her life.

1994 - By the next summer, hot, popular girl goes missing. Nerdy girl transforms herself into hot, popular girl and is now dating missing hot, girl's boyfriend. She also ditches her previous nerdy, outcast friends.

1995 - Missing hot, popular girl appears. Reveals she was kidnapped and held in an empty room in a house by the school's assistant principle. She says nerdy girl knew shew was locked in there the whole time. Reveals, without details, that unmentionable, terrible things were done to her. Assistant principle is shot and killed. Now nerdy (new hot) girl and original hot girl are all depressed and look goth and doing drugs, self cutting and are the poster child for troubled teenagers AND one is suing the other for libel/defamation of character.

It's really corny guys, but I want to see how it ends.

No, no. Merely speculating on the show.

Well this new MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE looks dope AF (the animation looks especially cool). Plus Kevin Smith.

I just got a huge treat on Star Trek TOS. I actually jumped up out of my lawn chair squealing in delight once I realized what had happened.

Castlevania Season 4, Ep 7, about the 16 minute mark: did Belmont just come out with a Blindsight vampire reference?

About 8 episodes into Season 4 of Fringe.

Not gonna lie, season 4 is my favorite so far.

Lmfao...

Iím watching a channel I have never really paid attention to (PopHD playing Beetlejuice) and a sex ad popped up on it. I have not seen one of these things on tv in over a decade I want to say. Thatís what makes this so great.
