Re: The Gifted (FOX) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 9/25/18

That's a bummer as I really enjoyed the show and where it went with the X-Men universe. Seems like all the current crop of superhero TV shows are tanking.

Re: DC's Legends of Tomorrow (S4E11) -- "Sťance and Sensibility" -- 4/15/19

Damn, this was the last of the CW DC shows I was still watching but it's just too painful to sit through now. The season started off so well but has just tanked over the past few episodes and I...

Re: The Ghoul (Ron Sweed) has passed away

Svengoolie is still going strong in Chicago and on MeTV which I'm thankful for.

Re: Warrior (Cinemax) -- From the creator of Banshee and Justin Lin -- Premieres 4/5/19

Really enjoyed the first episode. I like the decision to quickly shift to using modern colloquial English instead of sticking with subtitles or period correct modes of speech. Sure it takes place...

Re: The Ghoul (Ron Sweed) has passed away

A big part of my childhood was trying, and mostly failing, to stay up to watch The Ghoul on Friday night and then rolling out of bed to watch Sir Graves Ghastly on Saturday morning.

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

Got the SIM today so I'll give it a test-run between Chicago and Madison tomorrow and then overseas for the next few weeks. That should give me all the data I need to make a decision. It does suck...

Re: Strike Back (Cinemax) -- Season 6 Thread -- Premieres 1/25/19

You'll notice during those Moscow scenes that their visible breath from the "cold" is all CGI. They must've been miserable. Those behind the scenes snippets have been really entertaining this...

Awesome, I've been waiting for this. I've played all of the JC games but sure as heck wasn't going to buy this one.

Re: The Enemy Within (NBC) - Morris Chestnut, Jennifer Carpenter

I watch so few major network scripted shows that I'd forgotten how paint-by-numbers they are in terms of pacing and plot. I'm going to give it a few weeks but it was so predictable and the action...

Re: Top Chef: Kentucky (Bravo) -- Season 16 Thread -- Premieres 12/6/18

I commented on that as well while I was watching. I'm assuming it was a charitable fundraiser but it was still a bit cringey.

Especially during the end credits when we got to see his various attempts at different "American" accents. They were all universally terrible.

Re: Strike Back (Cinemax) -- Season 6 Thread -- Premieres 1/25/19

This has catapulted to the top of my must watch list each week and I try to watch each episode twice as the first run through is usually late on Friday night when I'm wiped out. It's surprising how...

Re: The Flash (S5E12) -- "Memorabilia" -- 1/29/19

In a world where superheros exist this may be the most unbelievable plot point of all. It would be one thing if it was a re-imagined present reality in which smart phones didn't exist but that's...

​​​​​​​Mutants with any outward sign of their X gene don't need the brand. I guess crazy colored hair and eyes count even though those could be easily faked.

Re: Stan Against Evil (IFC) -- S: John C. McGinley

It was fun while it lasted. Between this and Ash vs. Evil Dead ending I don't know where to turn for cheesy horror now.

Re: Strike Back (Cinemax) -- Season 6 Thread -- Premieres 1/25/19

Yasemin Kay Allen pulls off the Russian accent really well and I like her character's chemistry with the regulars so far so that's a promising start. The behind the scenes snippets after the credits...

Re: Strike Back (Cinemax) -- Season 6 Thread -- Premieres 1/25/19

Definitely check your DVR if you have a season pass set up as the name change for this season, "Strike Back Revolution," caused my X1 box to whiff on it.

Gracie was such the break-out star character of last season that I'm still scratching my head trying to remember the other female lead character.

Re: SNL (S44S10) -- 01/19/19 -- H: Rachel Brosnahan -- MG: Greta Van Fleet

I thought he looked like Peter Brady goes to Woodstock. I actually like the band and that's coming from a 50 year old dude. Best thing to come out of Frankenmuth since family style chicken dinners!

Re: Project Blue Blook (History) -- S: Aidan Gillen -- UFO Drama series
