Re: GLOW (Netflix) -- from EP Jenji Kohan -- S: Alison Brie -- women wrestlers -- 6/2

I think it could work in a League of Their Own type way, but from the trailer I was getting more of a slightly delusional "pornstars are empowered women" vibe.

Re: Stephen King's The Dark Tower - (2017, D: Arcel) S: Elba, McConaughey

McConaughey is closer physically, but he'd have to bring out something I've never seen in him to play Roland like the book. Elba seems like a more natural choice in terms of screen presence.

Re: Stephen King's The Dark Tower - (2017, D: Arcel) S: Elba, McConaughey

Not a fan of the trailer. Tone seems off and too hollywood action movie.

Elba is fine. Nothing it the trailer stood out but I still think he can pull of the role. Roland is really a slow burn...

Re: Deadliest Catch season 13 -- 4/11/17

I stopped watching within a year or two of Phil's death. When was the last time Jake was on the show? How did they end things with him?

Re: Yet another teacher allegedly has sex with a student

So, turns out that 15 year old Tennessee girl who was allegedly "abducted" and her 45 year old teacher spent most of their time on the run making out and boning at a California hippie commune. They...

Re: 2017 NFL Off-Season Thread

I'm not sad to see Simms go, but the whole Romo deal reminds me of exactly how we got stuck with such a putz in the first place. Maybe it would be a good idea to have these guys demonstrate they can...

Re: Doctor Who (BBC America) -- Series 10 Discussion Thread -- Premieres 4/15/17

Seems especially meh considering every major cast member of Torchwood was shown to be not at a minimum not strictly hetero. It will be interesting to see how they play it out though. It seems most...

Re: Doctor Who (BBC America) -- Series 10 Discussion Thread -- Premieres 4/15/17

This thread prompted me to rewatch Heaven Sent and Hell Bent last night and it really hit that point home with me.

Both were written by Moffat. Heaven Sent is a lot like Moffat's best work,...

Re: Doctor Who (BBC America) -- Series 10 Discussion Thread -- Premieres 4/15/17

I'm also in the "like Capaldi, but think he's had a lot of weak scripts" camp. I like the direction they took with the new Doctor and I don't recall ever thinking his performance was the reason I...

Re: Sausage Party (2016) - Seth Rogan & Evan Goldberg, R-rated Animation

Just watched this myself. Agree with what most are saying here a lot of good bits, but it also seemed to drag a bit a times.

And while the atheism theme was right in your face I didn't really...

Re: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016, D: Zwick) S: Cruise, Smulders

Watched this last night and it was bad in a very mediocre way. The plot and character was just so by the numbers. I hate it when I'm 10 steps ahead of the characters and that climactic scene with the...

Re: Wonder Woman (2017, D: Patty Jenkins,) S: Gadot, Pine

A lot looked good, but a couple moments made me nervous, mostly stuff set in our world. It didn't give away the entire plot, which is a step in the right direction for DC.

That last comedic line...

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FXX) -- Season 12 Thread -- premieres 1/4/16

It doesn't seem like the show has been around as long as it has. When I read it was the 12th season I assumed they had some non-traditional production schedule that sometimes produced more than one...

Re: The Running Thread (was Running is stupid and it hurts)

I've been dealing with a knee issue myself. It may be due to upping my mileage too quickly.

A last week, after a long run my knee felt a bit stiff that night and when I woke up the next morning...

Re: RIP Bill Paxton - Dead at 61

Great career. A lot of iconic lines and characters. And his career was still going strong, as he seemed to be as well. Read about it this morning I'm still a bit shocked.

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FXX) -- Season 12 Thread -- premieres 1/4/16

After last week's A+, I'd give this one more of a C+.

I liked Dennis and Charles daddy/boy banter, plus Dennis's denial of being abused, but the payoff on stage at the end lost me. I got what they...

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FXX) -- Season 12 Thread -- premieres 1/4/16

Great episode. I love how they danced around anyone saying the N word just a couple of episodes ago and then just had Charlie drop it here.

One annoying part was Mac retelling the myth of the...

Re: Legion (S1E01) -- X-Men Universe TV Show -- Series Premiere -- "Chapter 1" -- 2/8

Yeah, it was a slow start that didn't really pay off in the first episode, but hopefully will in the future. I wasn't blown away, but it's set up enough to keep my interest for a few more episodes.

Re: 2016 NFL Playoffs Thread - Super Bowl LI, February 5, 2017

Speaking of the election, I got a bit of election night deja vu looking over fivethirtyeight's live blog of the SB. They had the Pats chances of winning at 0.4% at one point.
