Tulsa King was great. The Fubar trailer looks fun, too. I think streaming is the way to go for stars of the 80s and 90s. Most of them are still popular all around the world.

Pretty much what I felt while watching the trailer. But in a good way, unlike the actual TL series. That said, I'd have preferred this as a movie.

I like the trailer. Used the term "FUBAR" a lot when I was in the Navy.

The lipstick thing had me laughing.

Hilarious that the opening scene of the trailer is basically a similar version of the torture scene in True Lies

Looks like a fun ride. I had no idea Monica Barbaro was in this. Sheís my new favorite since Top Gun: Maverick.

Iím glad to see the kid from Bad Santa is still getting work.

Re: FUBAR (Netflix) Spy Action series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger - premieres 5/25/23

I watched the first episode last night before bed. I’ll try to watch a few more today. It was mostly set up. I felt like it was a lot of action and Arnold cliches. The attempts at humor were a little dry and didn’t hit it off with me. But, I found it entertaining enough to binge more. Gabriel Luna from The Last of Us is the villain. And I enjoyed Monica Barbaro’s interactions with Arnold. I’ll watch more in order to get a better idea of it.

Re: FUBAR (Netflix) Spy Action series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger - premieres 5/25/23

I'm on episode 3 now. Feels like a mission of the week type plot with the underlying villain plot from episode 1. And of course the relationship complications with Arnold and Monica along with his ex-wife.

Dorky Jay Baruchel plays Monica's teacher boyfriend.

This is from the creator of Scorpion, so the tone is very light. Definitely not a dark and serious show like the later episodes of Tulsa King. I do like it when Arnold doesn't take himself too seriously and that's what it appears this is aiming to do.

But, I think some of you probably won't like this.

Re: FUBAR (Netflix) Spy Action series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger - premieres 5/25/23

I’m now halfway through the season. I think it’s okay. There really isn’t that much to talk about, so I don’t expect this thread will have much action.

Adam Pally appears in episode 4 as a former associate of the team, who was in prison. If you take out the F bombs, this could air on network TV. They borrow a lot of tropes from other television action shows with a team out in the field and some computer geeks running things from a command center. In fact Barry reminds me of Chester from The Flash.

My favorite quote so far:

”I’m not the reason the kid went south. I waited until he left the compound before I threw his dad off the cliff. I was trying to be nice!”

Arnold action spy movie with bad dad jokes!

Re: FUBAR (Netflix) Spy Action series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger - premieres 5/25/23

I am on episode 3 and so far I find it to be an easy watch. Also, mods feel free to ask me to delete the following comment because I am about to shill for another site, but Collider has one of those EPK type fluff quick interviews with Monica and Arnold, but the interview is kind-of funny and not completely roll your eyes bad. If you have about 6-7 minutes of times it is worth watching the interview.

I will say this, it is ridiculous how gorgeous Monica Barbaro is, seriously...she has to be one of the best looking actresses' working in TV/Film today, bar none.

Schwarzenegger has a great personality so I'm sure I'll like this.

Too bad they couldn't tweak it as a True Lies series with the original cast. Especially after the CBS dud.

Maybe we'll get a real sequel someday.

I'm enjoying it. Seems to succeed where Citadel failed. Better story, better characters, better look, better action, better violence, humor ...

The 5th episode was the best of the ones I’ve seen. Some good moments between Luke and Emma along with other character moments.

I’m going to try to finish this up today.

Finished this earlier today, and I would be down for a second season.

Just finished. It was enjoyable. The chopper line was pretty funny.

Okay, halfway through episode 7, and Barry is a man after my own heart! (minus the cousin thing) 😂😂😂😂

”They’re called Funko, and you can go Funko yourself!”

Roo has all the best one-liners and rim-shots.

And one thing I really noticed, after the first episode, they dropped nearly all of the F-bombs, and started substituting the work “fluff”. But definitely leaned into stronger sexual innuendo.

I'm going to stick with it but 2 episodes in, I feel like this show is pretty bad. It doesn't do anything particularly well so far.

This is currently the No. 1 trending show in Netflix TV. I would expect this to get a 2nd season. But, it's probably going to be a minimum 2 years before we see it I think. Can't wait too long. Arnold isn't getting any younger.
