Re: The Boys (Amazon) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 9/4/20

Everyone knows Mounds are superior. At least Annie also gave a shout out to Charleston Chew which was the best bang for the buck candy bar when I was a kid.

Re: Lovecraft Country (HBO) -- From EP Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams -- Premieres 8/16/20

That episode was really something -- shock value over substance. As a big fan of the book let me just say that this adaptation went seriously off the rails here. There's so much of the book that...

Re: What is the oldest thing on your DVR?

I've gotten better about clearing stuff off the DVR so the oldest recordings are the entire run of Masters of Horror which aired last Halloween as I'm saving them to watch this October. Back in the...

Re: Lovecraft Country (HBO) -- From EP Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams -- Premieres 8/16/20

All of the anachronistic stuff like this song and "Movin On Up" are doing more to pull me out of the story than enhance it. It's the 1950s, not the late 60s/early 70s. That being said I'm still...

Re: Lovecraft Country (HBO) -- From EP Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams -- Premieres 8/16/20

It seems like they burned through half the book in the first episode in terms of timeline but I'm expecting a lot of flashbacks to fill in the gaps. It really glossed over much of the intro stuff...

Re: Lovecraft Country (HBO) -- From EP Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams -- Premieres 8/16/20

The book is itself an allegorical examination of racism and injustice in the US in the post WWII years so it would be kind of weird if they omitted that. Think "Green Book" but better (at least the...

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

You're right, I completely spaced on the confrontation scene in Ennis's garage. So I'm guessing Holcomb helped whack Ennis because of the heat he was bringing to their more run of the mill...

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

I just figure the two detectives are (or were) muscle for hire and took a job from their old union-busting pal. When it went south the one with half a brain made sure to clean up the mess and walk...

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

I really liked the atmosphere of the show and the scene with all the key players coming together at last in Perry's office was great. I'm looking forward to Berger and Strickland becoming the foils...

Re: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC) -- The 7th and Final season -- Premieres 5/27/20

The last few episodes reminded me why I quit watching this show a few seasons ago. I realize they want to be serious and wrap of the series for all the hardcore fans but I miss the zany time travel...

The reveal on how the baby died was horrific.
Drinking tainted breast milk from a Chinese milk-maid fetish prostitute strung out on heroin is a new one for me.

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

I'll have to wait and do a 7-day trial of Cinemax to binge this and the last season of Strike Back. Thanks Comcast for getting rid of the channel with my two favorite shows.

Re: PGA Tour 2K21

The Golf Club 2019 on Xbox Game Pass is obviously being used to bolster pre-orders for this game but instead it has pretty much spoiled me on upgrading any time soon since I'm playing the crap out of...

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

It did feel pretty rushed but having the series start out on New Years makes sense since typically the bar exam is only offered in February and July. Perry must be a real whiz kid to have crammed...

Nailed it. Curious what Della's relationship is with the deputy DA she got to coach Perry up for the bar.

Re: The Alienist (TNT) -- S: Evans, Brühl, Fanning -- EP: Fukunaga

If you're one of the few that hasn't cut the cord you should check your DVR as mine didn't pick this one up to record since they changed the name of the series to "The Alienist: Angel of Darkness."

Re: Criterion Sale 50% off MSRP - Barnes & Noble July 10, 2020 through ??Aug 2, 2020

Re: Ghost of Tsushima (PS4; 7/17/20)

Well crap, guess I'll have to blow the dust off the PS4. Had no idea this game was even in development I'm so far out of the PlayStation loop but it looks to be right up my alley. Just bought the...

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

To be honest everything about Matthew Rhy's performance and appearance in this just screams modern day. I doesn't really bother me but it can be jarring when he butts up against someone who seems so...

Re: Snowpiercer (TNT) - based on the film - S: Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs - premieres 5/17/20

Sean Bean! Just when I thought they couldn't amp up the crazy factor any more they throw in a train vs. train showdown in Chicago. Having been on countless trains in and out of Chicago I actually...

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

I don't recall what his rank was during the WWI scenes but if he was an officer it would imply he had attended college. For all we know he's already an attorney but doesn't practice since his life...

Re: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC) -- The 7th and Final season -- Premieres 5/27/20

Jeez, what an idiot. If I had written and directed a forgettable sci-fi horror flick back in the 80s and then had it appear on The Last Drive-In and serve as the inspiration for a prime-time TV...

Re: Snowpiercer (TNT) - based on the film - S: Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs - premieres 5/17/20

I finally realized why I'm enjoying this show more than it perhaps merits. Since it's set on a train all of the action occurs in a tightly confined space so there are lots of close-ups and not...
