I agree with you about gen 2 and 3, I felt the same way. As for gen 1, I feel like both that and gen 2 had a mix of characters that I liked/didn't like.

Sucks they killed her off in the first episode of season 6 through some ridiculous fashion. However I will say that Rich's episode after that was really good, probably one of the best ones of the series.

Letterboxing, Dynamic Range and Creators Intent

I am starting to get annoyed by the so called "creators intent" and about every new show released on Netflix.

They seem to have these things in common:
  • 1.85 "cinema" aspect ratio leading to letterboxing
  • HDR is used as a gimmick where they shine lights directly into the camera on pitch black screens leading to eye strain on a TV that is able to reproduce the nits
  • "cinematic" audio meaning whisper level dialog alternated with loud scenes making it impossible to watch without headphones, special equipment or neighbor complaints.

Now I actually hooked up a audio compressor so I can watch the shows in my apartment and not inside a remote sound proofed room like the producers of "Another Life" think people have. (But it's really just the latest instance of this annoying fad)

In that regard, as posted I even have a solution, have a dbx266xl studio audio compressor from years ago around. Takes a little learning curve to fiddle with the settings tough. I leave it on auto attack & decay mode most of the time but still have to tweak the settings if the show has a particularly extreme dynamic range.

Current version

This one has jack and xlr inputs though but I'm sure there are compressors with cinch if you look for it.

I just watch everything with subtitles. I'm not a native English speaker though so luckily I'm used to it, reading the subs is almost subconcious.
I really don't understand how Americans/Brits can follow what's going on sometimes because of the awful audio mixing.

>Sir, what is "insert concept that anyone without pants-shitting enthusiasm would easily understand"?

Isaac's character would of been far more believable if they waited for the series finale for him to spend 700 years on a planet studying "humans". He should of learned a lot there and have actually gained a lot of social skills.

I suspect Seth agrees, but had to put his best material out early or risk cancellation.

Chip, Mickey, and Alba were also great, but Jimmy, Sabrina, and Ben were my personal favorites. If more szhows with little kid characters made them more like Ben, I wouldnt hate Family shows so much. And maybe I only liked Sabrina because she was hot, I can't remember now that it's been so long. And Jimmy was basically me IRL so I always liked his plots best, watching him get shit on hard by anyone and everyone.

I think it's a little unfair to judge "solo" works with Always Sunny, considering the show is what it is thanks to having all of them in it, with the added benefit of them writing and controlling the show.

I mean, I understand why you would make the comparison, it will always be their best work. But if they're involved in a project that doesn't have all of them involved creatively, then yeah it's never going to be on the same level

I just watched Dirty Harry for the first time in my life and I think I found a bizarre Dirty Harry reference in Christmas Vacation, so the pool scene at the beginning of Dirty Harry where Scorpio gets his first victim has a weird pyramidal based and totally out of place looking artificial grass. After the movie was over I realized the place I had seen that pool before was in Christmas Vacation when Clark Griswald at the beginning of the movie has a model pool in his office it's virtually identical!!! Am I reading into this to much or is Christmas Vacation implying that Clark Griswald is about to snap and become a Scorpio/Zodiac type serial killer?

Any thoughts? Or is this just too far fetched?

I wish Prince Valiant would get his own netflix-series.

One of the best and longest comic-series deserves this attention imho.

The hun-story-line or his first sight of Aleta ... there is so much potential!

Imagine what a budget and dedication of GoT and Last Kingdom could deliver!

To be fair to him, they call them Huns in the movie.

Mulan's history is all retarded, but they were apparently referencing earlier invasions by the Xiongnu, who some people theorize are related to the Huns in some way so they sometimes get conflated. I guess someone at Disney subscribed to that theory and didn't realize it made no geographic or historical sense.

So it probably still technically counts as a depiction of Hun battles, but in a really really really stupid way.

As a side note, I think I understand better why the Chinese really didn't like the movie.

Don't know how to feel about this, but I'll check it out. The documentary (Of Mics and Men) that came out recently was great.

My biggest gripe of the past few years is that the Art of War audiobook w/ Wu-Tang beats as the background has been wiped from the internet.

Wu-Tang Clan is pretty well known for being a huge part of the commercialization of hip hop that even Chappelle's Show made fun of it so it's not really surprising to me that there's going to be a show about them but I'll definitely watch it when it comes out.

That's it. There's only 3 episodes this season because of Bandersnatch. Not the first time though since the first two seasons also had 3 episodes each.
