Definitely a shark-jumpingly shitty season. Its all about relationship/breakup drama now instead of funny stoner jokes. Soooo bored. Also the season premiere where Newman from Seinfeld is an Angel giving Eric a magical Its A Wonderful Life adventure was beyond cringey.

Sorry bro but I'm watching best Sci Fi. [LEXX] Your sci fi doesn't even have tiddies. If B5 showed Leeta and Delenn's tits at some point, maybe in the finale and some kind of mega orgy, that would have been dope.

I wish Charlie Kaufman had a better sense of humour. He's too miserable.
His characters are narcissists who enter into a spiral because they're pessimists and they know that's bad so they think that being a pessimist is something that'll ruin things so it just goes on and on.
Just look how smug he is in his intellectual cynicism.
Philip Seymour Hoffman too.
I want to replace Kaufman with the brothers who did In Bruges, La Guardia and Calvary. Then replace Kaufman with Brendan Gleeson.
That would make everything better. Fuck it, I'll watch one of those instead.

Lexx is great but I wouldn't call it the best. Have you seen it at least once all the way through? I usually rewatch it at least once every couple of years or so and find it really starts to drop off in S3 and especially in S4.

Yeah I was exaggerating, but I do honestly think it has the best first 2 episodes of any sci fi series. Hilarious, absurd and it hit all the right sci fi notes.

But yeah, I haven't finished it, I'm getting into season 3 now and while it's still very entertaining, it seems to be going the way of longer story arcs with not as many standalone episodes and i think they may be making a mistake with that. I'm guessing the writers got tired of it and wanted to change up the formula.
Also, the dialogue is getting really easy to predict. If I counted every time that Kai gave that whole "I'm dead, dead men can't feel emotions" speech I imagine it would be close to 100. And Xev is getting really repetitive in how she makes a dumb move pretty much every episode to create conflict. That part is kinda lame.
Though I notice these issues the show is still managing to bring lots of laughs and interesting stories, though they do keep managing to get weirder and weirder.

Regardless of how S3 and S4 turneed out they still aren't terrible and it is one of my favorite sci-fi series. S3 gets pretty weird but there are still some good eps. S4 is when it really starts to take a dive imo but by that point you have a good feel for the show and like them despite their flaws at least I do.

While its not really the same if you love Sci-FI I'd really recommend giveing Space Above and Beyond a watch sometimes. Really a great series that was canceled way too soon.

Started a rewatch of Northern Exposure a while back but stopped to catch up on some recently aired stuff I'd missed. Now that I have I've started back in on it and am still really enjoying them. Seeing it the first time as a kid I think Maggie is the reason I like short haired chicks so much.

After hearing about R. Lee Ermey passing I decided to do a rewatch of Space A&B as well. It always pisses me off that it only got one season. Really an underrated series IMO.

Just watched The Office s05e23 - Michael Scott Paper Company. I think the last episode I had watched when it initially aired was Stress Relief, which was the post-Super Bowl episode, so it’s interesting to see what direction the show takes. I felt like the storyline of Michael starting his own paper company with Pam and Ryan only as a way to leverage it into getting their jobs back at Dunder Mifflin just seemed pointless to me. Felt like it got resolved too quickly.

And geez Ellie Kemper looks so different not as a redhead.

But once I figured it out I actually really liked it because this is some pretty decent quality writing. I guess the writers just wanted to show off what they can do this season, and I'm diggin it.

Oh, that also confused the shit out of me when I was first looking into the show. The second link there is just the first season of the show. I'm guessing they weren't sure if it would be picked up so they sold it as a miniseries or something and just called it LEXX after that.

Oh and it's got the highest ratings because the first four episodes are amazing. After that it's still great imo but the lead female gets changed and some other stuff but still very fun. It just won't ever top those first four episodes and it's a bit different afterwards.

So the 4 part one serves as the first season. The second comprises seasons 2-4. You need to start with Season 1. If you DL it from anywhere it should be all together in a normal order instead of breaking it up into 2 series.

Also, make sure you grab the uncensored ones.

I like all the Rambo movies but I would be lying if I said FB 2&3 and the 4th film were anywhere near as good as the first one. If you like the first one I would give them a go but don't expect them to be as good.

Alternatively you could watch Rambo: The Journey which is a fan edit that breaks them down into episodes/seasons and is really well done.

I just got back from seeing Black Panther in theatres for the first time, and I was pretty dissapointed. The reviews and box office made me think it was going to be better than Spider-Man:homecoming, ant man, and doctor strange all which I enjoyed very much. It wasnt a interesting or captivating story, I didn't connect with T'challa or killmonger, and they went in to kilmongers back story more then T'challla. T'challa has zero personality. Some of the fight scenes were cool when it was live action, but watching two CGI identical looking black panthers suits fight each other is pretty lame. Overall not worth seeing in theatres like other super hero movies are and Black Panther is way overrated/overhyped.

Santa Clarita Diet.

God does this show suck. Josh Duhamel (I mean Timothy Olyphant lol) is the best part of this show. It's sort of sad. Ultimately Drew Barrymore's greatest accomplishment--aside from being a drunk toddler--is being married to Tom Green briefly.

Thankfully most of us haven't fucked up as bad as her.

The season premiered today with the first two episodes. Pretty good premiere I’ll say and the scenes of June cutting the tag off her ear and one of the handmaids getting her hand burned was just crazy to watch. i also like how they’re flashing back to the beginning of the rise of Gilead with the terrorist attacks to give perspective on the changes that were about to come. Gonna watch the second episode later.

>The Handmaid’s Tale s02e02 - Unwoman

This was a pretty good one with its focus on Emily trying to survive in the Colonies. Her flashback story was sad just seeing how gays and lesbians were being persecuted and ending up seperated from her wife and kid. It was nice to see her and Janice reunite though. There wasn’t really a whole lot with June other than her trying to keep the memories of those executed at the Boston Globe alive and trying to escape but to realize that she’s basically stuck.

And it got renewed not surprisingly.

Yeah the meat truck seemed weird to be pulling up there but maybe it was a way to make it less conspicious to the Guardians and stuff. I agree though that they should be microchipped or something but they really haven’t addressed what happened with the technology when Gilead was formed. Like they have cars and the hospital where June was was high tech but there’s nothing else. I’d like to see what happened and why there’s no tech.

Some of the layer episodes in S3 are fucking jaw dropping (in a good way) like seriously the DP they got that season is phenomenal, the practical FX and editing and sound design, holy shit, it honestly just gets better and has the best ending of the Channel Zero seasons so far imo, the rest were kinda weak

I watched Doctor Strange, which I thought was good especially the Inception style CGI. And Benedict and Mads are great actors so it’s a plus in my book.

Basically I’m binging all the MCU films that I haven’t watched already (already seen Iron Man, both Guardians of the Galaxy films and Black Panther) before I see Infinity War next Saturday since my friend felt that it was important for me to watch them.

To be fair, the original War Machine orchestrated his own gambit to get paid more and failed when the producers just went "Nah, we'll just recast War Machine instead of paying you more", so he pretty much fucked himself. If he just took the deal he would be making millions in royalties for the rest of his life.

Sanford and Son is underrated and probably one of the best sitcoms of all time. Also, best theme song for a sitcom.

Hung out with a couple friends last night and they're big fans of The Mick so I finally checked it out. I'm not really big into a lot of these network comedies so I never gave it a shot but it's pretty damn funny. Same character as Dee getting into more trouble.

Watched Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers. They were pretty good though the things I’ve noticed about these movies is that despite all the destruction, they don’t ever really show civilians being killed, just the bad guys. The Incredible Hulk is the only Phase 1 film I haven’t seen yet though my friend doesn’t like it since it reminds her that Edward Norton is better than Mark Ruffalo but I’ll watch it at some point. Gonna watch Iron Man 3 next.

And Don Cheadle is a better actor than Terence Howard.

Fucking garbage. Ugly animation. Nauseating shaky-cam action sequences. Retarded, boring story that ignores everything that makes Batman compelling. Watched most of it in Japanese, so the voice acting was fine, but what I sat through in English was shit. Batman: Gotham Knight was a much better anime spin on Batman.

>The Crossing
So by episode 4 we know that some people came back in time to escape the Apex prior to the lot in episode one. Their main mission is to stop Apex from happening. But the second lot coming back shows that they've failed. So in episode 5 they step up their attempts to prevent Apex by wiping out all the people who created it somehow. It doesn't occur to them for a moment that maybe their understanding of time travel may be wrong and perhaps these people are coming from a parallel timeline because if they weren't then there'd be a paradox. Why are TV writers so lazy?

Not really. I just rewatched civil war and every MCU movie preceding it over the last 3 days so it's fresh in my mind.

The whole point of Civil War was that Civilians died in some african country while Wakandans were there, who also died. Thus it was a big international issue. I asked myself while watching it...and getting very angry because of the lack of clarity in the film, "Why didn't anyone give a fuck about ALL THE CIVILIANS WHO DIED LEADING UP TO THIS?" I was getting seriously pised off. The entire film, the only people they talked about were their precious non-american africans and their precious Wakandans. Seriously irked me. Totally unrealistic, obviously just in the film for brownie points. Such bullshit. Yes, it was a big diplomatic issue, yes, it was non-US citizens so it was an even bigger issue, but still, please, fucking AGKNOWLEDGE that other people have died, lots of them, in the previous films. Just acting like "OH NO CIVILIANS DIED THIS IS SOOOOO NEWWWWWWW IT'S NEEEVVVEERRR HAPPENED BEFOOOORRREEEE AND NOW WE'RE CONCERNED." is BULLSHIT.

I'm sorry if that comes off as really aggressive it's not directed at you, I sort of got lost in my rage. It's directed at the directors/head writers/executives who made the film.

Civil War in the comics made sense because you had literally several hundred super powered individuals running around and a couple thousand mutants also all doing their thing, so the idea of a registration at least had some logic to it. That doesn't really hold up in the movies where there are like 12 heroes and half of them have no powers, they pretty consistently kill the villains so there aren't really any dangerous superpowered people, and there are no mutants so you don't have the "anybody could end up with some crazy power" aspect.

All in all I think Civil War was a poor story to try to adapt and they could have gone with any other good Captain America story like Secret Empire or the Serpent Society or something instead of just making Avengers 2.5

There've only been 2 event called Secret Wars. One Earth-616 based and published in the 80s, one multiversal & published a few years ago. The Original had sequels & spin-offs but they were clearly numbered/subtitled.
Unless there's one upcoming (haven't kept up with comics for a year) there's only one Infinity War. However, it was bookended by Infinity Gauntlet & Infinity Crusade, and there have been many other "Infinity ____" events since. Still, all are distinct.

Also the reason I've not kept up with comics in a year is because their best writer was setting up a sweeping continuity-driven epic called "Eternity War" to coincide with the movies and they cancelled it on him because "we're doing fewer events now". So there BETTER FUCKING NOT BE AN INFINTY WAR EVENT UPCOMING

Channel Zero season 3 felt pretty Lynchian. It felt like a bit of a strange direction for the series but they pulled it off pretty well.

I think it was probably the most entertaining out of all 3 seasons so far though I think I liked season 2 the best in terms of narrative.

Watched the season 2 premiere of Brockmire. Feels a little different than Season 1, can definitely notice the higher budget. Still pretty funny, though. Hopefully they don't completely abandon the baseball humor as the season goes on (kind of worried about this podcast/touring subplot). Looking forward to the rest of the season.

The green screen lighting and CGI is really inconsistent but the show goes places.

Plus that's the show they cancelled to make The Expanse. And I dunno if I've soured on The Expanse since the world-building and Tom Jane detective shit is over or if Season 3 is just in a lull so far.

All of the layered separate stories really made the show, but Season 3 has just been getting the gang together.
Well they're together, what the fuck now?
Or maybe it's just because I could binge watch the first two seasons and the weekly schedule is excruciating.

Watched Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I thought The Dark World wasn’t as good as the first movie and apparently it’s the worst rated of the MCU films so I’m not surprised. The Winter Soldier on the other hand was great. Lots of action and good reveals like Bucky Barnes being alive and Hydra infiltrating SHIELD. Gonna watch The Avengers: Age of Ultron next.

Also finished season 6 of The Office. Definitely a step down from season 5, which I consider to be its peak.

The last Samurai is actually about the decline and end of the Samurai as a whole. And Tom Cruise's character isn't a real Samurai in that movie.

And being made Samurai isn't nearly as good as getting a knighthood. A knighthood doesn't come with rules that make you automatically poorer than the merchant class and in fact historically, royalty used to give the knights land and wealth on occasion.

True. People forget that for a Chinese movie to be able to land a top A-lister like Damon, is unheard of. Look at all the Chinese made dreck on Netflix. These guys want to make blockbusters, so they drop a bunch of yuan on someone like Matt Damon for the sheer prestige of getting a "real star," into their film.

And then they make a shitty film because the Chinese have yet to know how to make a good film, and their shit is heavily censored so you get stuck having to do historical epics and stay the fuck away from anything current....

Scuse me bitch. Dragon Blade would like a word.
Now Dragon Blade is a pretty flawed movie, but it's also fucking awesome. It's long AF and bubbled in a pointless plot about some archaeologist bullshit with satellite holograms and shit but you could literally cut those segments off and it's a bitchin' movie.
The rest of the padding is in weird musical numbers that are overplayed for the amount of actual emotional value they hold within the movie.
If you got really high you might still tear up though.

It's about twice as historical as The Great Wall, which is enough to make it about two thirds as historical as whatever you think the most historically accurate Mel Gibson movie is. It isn't. none of them are But you're entitled to your opinion

It's got good costumes without going full-on Warcraft movie like The Great Wall. They go 50% Warcraft movie. Which IMO is the right amount of exaggerated prop armor.

But the fucking half white chinese boy that they whited up to be the son of the Emperor of Rome though, lol.

They do the same thing Hollywood does with its endless Rocksploitation (As in Dwayne Johnson) disaster movies. They just go about it differently. Neither one is more right than the other.
But the universal thing in these movies is the spectacle and action, which transcends cultural boundaries, and Chinese cinema is better at it in a lot of ways. The other stuff doesn't land as well.

It was a really interesting documentary. His case has always been especially interesting, likely in part because it was the first gore I ever saw on the internet and also just because the whole thing is a strange aberration in American politics and the media. The show really manages to bring you into what his life was like and by the end you'll probably think he was set up as well because there is a lot that would lead you to believe that, least of which is the fact that Budd Dwyer never actually accepted a bribe.

Shit, I would have rather have seen more of Raj in this episode since at least his professional conflict with Brockmire seems to be what the whole season will be driven by.

Soooo on the topic of "worst rated of the MCU films"...
You might've noticed that the Cap guys are directing Av3ng4rs because Whedon isn't...

IM2's cardinal sin was being thoroughly forgettable. I saw it in cinemas and felt nothing coming out.
I'm an unrepentant Thor 2 fanboy because it's very in-your-face with what it does, for good or ill. Many feel "what it does" was the last thing they wanted out of Thor, e.g. more Jane, more romcom, more quirky OCs ("THE OBNOXIOUS INTERN IS BACK AND HAS HER OWN OBNOXIOUS INTERN NOW?!?!?"), plus IIRC some saw the action as a further negative rather than a counter-balancing positive. "The sets look plastic", "The grunts remind me of Power Rangers", "This thing on my neck is getting bigger".
Also Malekith. People HATED how they 'wasted' Chris Eccleston on Malekith. Which is a pretty valid point; especially when you consider comic Malekith is absolutely nothing like that whatsoever. As befitting of ye olde Nordic "dark elf" he's a smooth-talking ever-wistful psychopath, not this self-serious stick-in-the-mud. More Joker than General. They even made his colorful harlequin gear drab and boring. Which is a further realm of indictment; it's lacking as an adaptation. They advertised it as a road-trip across all 9 Realms, yet all we get are the two we've seen before (one of them being Earth) and a literal wasteland. Granted it saved them for later movies eitri best dorf but given the comics had a Thor-chases-madman-Malekith-around-the-entire-world-tree arc to hype the movie up the contrast was hella disappointing.

Watched Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. I didn’t think Age of Ultron was as good as the first film and thought that it dragged in some parts. A bit better than Thor: The Dark World but not by much. Really enjoyed Ant-Man on the other hand though. That whole fight scene between Ant-Man and Yellowjacket was really entertaining especially at the end in Cassie’s bedroom. Was not expecting Ant-Man to enlarge a Thomas the Tank Engine toy like that. Looking forward to seeing Ant-Man and The Wasp.

Due to the runaway success of the first movie there was lots of corporate meddling & micromanaging in Age of Ultron that kneecapped its fluidity. So much so that Disney stepped in and basically took the movie division away from Marvel-corporate's influence. Which might be why Phase 3 skyrocketed in quality (whilst the TV division remains kinda shitty lel - Inhumans is a microcosm of the whole process). Basically imagine if investors got so sick of Vince's shit that they banished him to his side projects like XFL & gave WWE fully over to HHH. Movie backstage politics are as fascinating as wrestling's any day.
Anyway, Civil War is a much better Avengers 2 than Avengers 2. Hope you get/got to cram it & Ragnarok inb4 seeing Infinity War. They're both fairly important (and great fun on their own).

Yeah I just watched Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok. Civil War was what Avengers 2 should have been though I feel like the Civil War premise could have been better considering the scope of it in the comics. Ragnarok was awesome though, probably one of my favorite MCU films now and I enjoyed the humor and action. Hulk and Thor’s bromance was one of my favorite parts about it.

Coolio. Thor arguably the main hero of Infinity War and they seem to have something special in mind for Hulk so enjoy.
Just realized I totally forgot Homecoming exists. If you haven't watched it yet don't worry. It's intentionally very low-key and street-level in scope. They develop his relationship with Tony, and there's a quaint fluff scene at the end that sets up the first quaint fluff scene in Infinity War, but otherwise it's a very personal Spidey-specific story. Like the Ant-Man or Incredible Hulk of this Phase; tonally, contextually, there's nothing pressuring you to watch it.
>I feel like the Civil War premise could have been better considering the scope of it in the comics.
Different contexts m8. The comics had hundreds of superhumans and decades of stories, IMO they did the best possible job with the concept that they could with ~15 heroes and ~12 movies. It had to make sense that a Registration Act would be mandated and a "civil war" would even happen under those far stricter parameters. Which I'd say it did.

Yeah Spider-Man and Hulk were actually the only two films I haven’t gotten around to yet although with Ant-Man they did have him battle Falcon and to set up his appearance in Civil War since Falcon recommended him to Captain America.

You’re right that they were more limited in what they could do with Civil War and that they changed the premise to fit the film universe.

I'd strongly advise seeing Thor 3, Dr Strange & GotG. There're great MCU movies that aren't relevant & relevant MCU movies that aren't great, those 3 (and Civil War) hit the sweet spot.
>which made civil war comics so good.
I haven't read Civil War personally because I've consistently heard it's ass. Not that I would've anyway, I'm not particularly interested in event comics, but having been subjected to Millar's Unholy Trinity I'd sooner believe the criticisms that not. Also AIUI the left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing in regards to who was meant to be "right" which lead to a lot of mixed messages and dissatisfying payoffs. IDK, my opinion on it's summed up by a Black Panther panel I can't seen to find right now (so here's more behind-the-scenes memes).
And homecoming has the iron Man fluff scene and Hulk has Lt. Thunderbolt Ross (surprise surprise). All 3 have little things that contribute to the whole, but VERY little. Sam simply saying "I know a guy" in Civil War is all you really need to get why this shrinky dude's here; the scene & the movie both help but they're not vitally necessary.
Likewise, it's pretty easy to go into Infinity War having watched zilch and still be able to follow it, maybe even be moved by it. Because Thanos is the main character.

I guess this show keeps me woke but I appreciate their humorous and serious takes on racism and the like. Good start to the season so far and integrating the alt right into the storyline keeps it topical and much more interesting especially in a college environment, that Dear Right People was cringe. That whole Twitter war Sam got into was funny although she did clap back at that alt right account hard. Reggie’s my favorite character though.

Season finale of Barry.

This may be my favorite new series of the year. It's dark and hits close to home (not the assassin part, but the living in proximity to the aspiring actor scene). The supporting cast is great, especially Victor Zsasz (lol) as polite underworld figure NoHo Hank and his genuinely warm one-sided friendship with Barry. Henry Winkler channels a lot of his character from Children's Hospital in this show.

A good string of episodes and a surprise twist of Silvio being behind AltRightW. I guess they’re making him to be like Milo Yiannopoulos. I figured out it was him after he shit down Lionel’s idea to do a story on uncovering who was running the account. I did really like Troy and Gabe’s episodes, the former for its humor especially with Troy tripping on shrooms and ending up in the fountain again but also for the character growth trying to step out of his father’s shadow and own up to his responsibilities and stuff. The latter episode I was really impressed by since it was mainly focused on Gabe and Sam’s interview and argument. That was a very well acted episode. I also thought the hotep shit was pretty funny.

I mean they mentioned it in Reggie’s episode and it gets referred to like when Gabe told Sam about his white guilt and how he wish he’d never had made the phone call to the cops but it’s not the predominant story.

Wow this is a piece of shit. Exactly the same trope comedy characters as every 80s high school movie but it shows people with smartphones at the start so you know it's not set in the 80s. Oh and there's a gay girl and nobody's racist.
There are genuinely scenes where the "nerd" characters are talking over wrist walkie-talkies, crawling through the vents to try and spy on girls changing. It's well produced but I can't believe this will actually appeal to anyone in that age demographic.

She grew up there as a teen in the late 90's and was one of those heavy metal types who wore all black so that pretty harshly effected her. She recommended I watch it a long time ago and finally got around to it.

I just finished the second installment and god damn it's chilling. Buyers scares the shit out of me. He's a fuckin maniac and it really couldn't be much more glaringly obvious.

And I'd wager that if season 3 were the latest you'd seen you would have a different opinion.

The older your memories the more you forget the weak parts, and the more real estate White Christmas takes up in your head while the political episodes everyone hates disappear.

Season 4 is legitimately weak, and nothing is better than White Christmas thus far.

Just watched the season 5 finale of Silicon Valley fan-fucking-tastic. Previous season finales were misfires to me because they kept relying on the deus ex machina crutch to an almost self-parody degree, so them all working together at a time of crisis to succeed was really fucking great to see. It was also great to see all of the fanservice callbacks in the episode. I now have high hopes for the sixth season (I want to say Mike Judge has stated that the series was created with a 6-season arc in mind), but even if something happens and they never make another episode they went out on a really high note.

Now to decide on either watching Eastbound & Down season 3 or trying out Barry while I wait for Brockmire's second season to wrap up.

Binge watching has a similar effect, but it's because you were slightly less depressed when you started and binge watching is depressing.

I wouldn't say worse but the Netflix Black Mirrors tend to be less memorable for that reason. Even the other two really good episodes from Season 4 don't stand out the way USS Callister did when I was fresh.

this was/will be a great movie and i'm pretty sure it lies to the audience about what's really going on so yeah take all of your best truth-unravelling drugs at the same time and solve a mystery

Finally got around to watching Stalker.
What a beautiful movie. In terms of Cinematography and beauty I almost wanna call it the USSR's Space Oddyssey. Also, it's (kinda) vague. I love the way the movie manages to instill suspense in such seemingly mundane scenes. That's how well executed it was in every aspect.

After letting this movie stew for a bit, I see a lot of similarities between Stalker and Eraserhead. They both almost have the exact same narrative if you subscribe to the theory that The Zone is his escape from his shitty life/existence. They just use different story telling methods. One is surrealist, the other is ultra surrealist and absurd.

did you see Annihilation? it's probably my favorite movie of the year and everyone said it had a bunch of parallels with Stalker, but I never got around to checking Stalker out

There are some similarities, but Annihilation is very much still a modern American film, in that it's more action oriented and there is at least some pay off towards the end even if things are still left open to interpretation a bit. Stalker is also a product of it's time and place in that it's more ambiguous in every way and even more psychological with little actual pay off or conclusion.

They're both great, obviously, just different. At the same time Annihilation certainly is in the vein of Stalker to the extent that it can be in the environment in which it was produced.

Yeah they're pretty similar. The zone and the shimmer are basically the same idea used to explore different concepts.

Watched the new Fahrenheit 451 from HBO. Man, it wasn't bad necessarily but it was so heavy handed to the point of being ham handed with it's messaging. I'm not a big politics guy but it seemed very "don't you see what can happen if democracy erodes!" with some not so subtle shots at the state of current American politics. I also did not like the performance of the female lead at all, I've got nothing specific to point to but I just didn't like that character. Maybe it was the writing but who knows.

Also I watched the film version from the 60's years ago and don't remember disliking it this much, but I was in college so who knows. Maybe this was just a crap movie. There are some poignant moments but for the most part I didn't enjoy it.

>"don't you see what can happen if democracy erodes!"

So I guess it's generic dystopia and not the very specific dystopia of the book?

Well to be fair, the book is quite heavy handed. And you gotta expect them to bring up current politics. But I'll have to check it out. I am a pretty big fan of Bradbury.

Hearing about this just makes me more excited to see how the Brave New World mini-series is gonna turn out, but it looks like it might be stuck in development hell because it doesn't appear there's been much news in a couple years... Farenheit 451 is great but like Huxley said, you don't need to burn books if nobody wants to read them. Or something like that.

Came on here to see if there was any discussion of this and I totally agree.
Only seen the first 2 eps but by the looks of things you can get youtube red for a month for free (is there literally any other reason to get youtube red right now?) and will probably check it out.

I am usually very cynical about nostalgic cash grabs but truthfully this one feels like it's been done very, very well. Would have been easy to have made it more about THE Karate kid but the fact they flesh out the bad guy from the first one is a really good decision. Makes him less of a fighting game baddie and more like being a dumb kid.

Only minor complaint that I've had is that it was kinda bullshit how he came into the money to fund the dojo, some old guy just shows up and chucks money at him to turn his life around, just seems kinda lazy

Haven't watched that yet, but from the trailer HBO showed before everything (other than the Westworld trailer) for the past month I couldn't stop thinking about how retarded it was that they made a modern future remake of it but still used physical books. Like, do these people not have Kindles or e-books? Is there no internet or deep web with PDF backups of books? I get the feeling that it's going to bug the hell out of me watching this because my brain won't shut off and let me just accept that for whatever reason despite every other technological advancement the government is still burning physical books to censor free thought.

Also, never saw the old movie but the book kicked ass from what I remember of it.

Yeah, there are some things that just don't make any logical sense. There is some kind of new internet that the ruling government controls and they mention the old internet a bunch, but there is also a "dark" version of the new internet where illegals go to upload and share books and movies and music. They never get into how any of that works though.

Thinking about it now after watching it yesterday, it was actually very stupid if you drop your immersion in the story. They don't get into how things have ended up this way other than mentioning a war a few times. On second thought, it's a very dumb movie.

>13 Reasons Why season 2

Binged the season over the weekend but not surprisingly it's a step down from the first season. I get that they decided on using the lawsuit testimonies as a framing device to tell each character's story in each episode much as they had with the tapes last season but it didn't have the same amount of intrigue although utilizing flashback scenes with Hannah to show different perspectives and expanding on things that we already knew or were surprised to find out (Zach and Hannah's relationship) were interesting. I did appreciate how the show approached Jessica's sexual assault and having to come to terms with it and finally having the courage to speak up about it.

That scene where Tyler got sodomized with that broom was really fucked up in a more shock value way than Hannah's suicide. Just felt out of place and unnecessary. Also they completely copped out on Tyler shooting up the school but it's probably for the best considering all the school shootings that have already happened this year. That ending with Tony making Tyler get in the car and Dylan holding the gun was really dumb. Also fuck Bryce.

>Evil Genius: The True Story of America's Most Diabolical Bank Heist

Also binged this as well. I was already familiar with the whole pizza bomber case but they really dug deep into it and it was way more bizarre than I thought it would be. Really good though if you're into true crime docs like Making a Murderer and The Jinx.

Watched the second episode of Eastbound & Down season 3 (Chapter 15), and what a steaming pile of shit that was. The entire second half of the episode felt like some Tim & Eric shitfuck of nonsense and didn't feel like E&D at all. Felt like Ferrell used his producing credit to get the rest of the production to let him just try whatever the fuck he wanted, to the detriment of the episode.

Shit, does it get worse than that second episode? Adding the baby and Jason Sudekis as Kenny Powers II is pretty trope-y but I can at least see how they could mine that for comedy.
