    Yeah, I'm sure the show was shot like 1917, the movie..though it appears to be a single ace e, there HAS to be multiple shots, especially when it's showing so many people running around, in massive crowds, and it truely shows just.how chaotic the entire scene was.

    Was looking for a fun-happy sitcom type show and remembered the show “Happy Endings” is on Netflix. Think “the new girl” but a bit more goofy. It’s just fun background tv/Tv while playing on your phone or talking. Hard to believe it came out in 2012 as it feels more “modern”. Until someone whips out an actual physical digital camera, lol.

    My favourite part about that episode is that it starts with Darlene saying to Eliot, "we don't have to talk if you don't want to," and then the whole thing proceeds without any dialogue between the 2.

    I love just about everything about that series but it really made me appreciate Sam Esmail as a director and I'm definitely interested in anything that he's attached to.

    We watched Homecoming last summer and enjoyed the first season, but haven't checked out season 2.

    Finished S1/2 of Brockmire, I honestly had NO idea it went on for four seasons total, I thought it was like those two and done; feel a little stupid now but oh well, it's only 8 episodes a season, and Richard Kind is in the next one. RICHARD KIND!

    Finished Shadow and Bone. Fantastic show and great cliffhanger for s2.

    Re-watching The Orville. The show is even better the second time around. It's funny enough without being slapstick goofy (similar to shows like After Life). The plots are well-written and complex like a "Star Trek" series should be. The characters are well developed. I just don't get why it wasn't more loved. I can't wait for the eventual 3rd season.

    Also just started watching I Think You should Leave. Seems like every episode has at least one skit that is literally laugh out loud funny.

    Just started watching The Expanse last night, and my initial impression is pretty mixed just after having watched two episodes. I'm normally a sucker for space sci-fi stuff and I appreciate a lot of the sci-fi details about the show, but I'm just not vibing with these characters at all.

    The first season is really slow to get into, but it's worth powering through the first couple of episodes. That's when it starts to get way more interesting.

    +1 to Orville and Shadow and Bone. Great shows



    Finished watching Cursed. Pretty meh. The dialogue is horrible at times, and the fight scenes are slow and sad. CG is wonky in spots. The practical effects (like when they're pulling a vine out of a dude's throat, or a sword hidden in a guys chest) are really good though. It's a cool take on the Arthurian legends but the execution just isn't there.

    Currently watching The war of the world's. The recent French/English version. Very dark, but really good.

    A new season of Van Helsing is on Netflix.

    Why do I keep watching this show? It's so terrible, but I can't stop.

    Yellowstone. Kickass modern western series like Longmire or Justified written by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario/Wind River). I binged the first 2 seasons in a weekend. Literally one of my only critiques is the fly fishing scenes, which are cringe inducing if you know a damn thing about fly fishing ( still not as bad as A River Runs Through It though)

    That right there is a trifecta of win.

    The girl in Herman's Head is now playing Jared Padalecki's mom on the new Walker. Every time I see her on screen I think of Herman's Head.

    Invincible. If Marvel style heroes were done without a PG13 filter. Only 4 episodes in but I like it.

    I can't wait to see Netflix's Tee-Man and the Masters of the Universe: Estrogenation. Should be a real hoot.

    PS: Fuck you, Kevin Smith.

    Help me out...I haven't seen it, but I'm super excited. What am I missing? I've only seen one trailer.

    Clownfish: "Sources say this is the Teela show, she has a girlfriend, He-Man takes a backseat."
    Kevin: "That's a lie! Not true"
    Kevin: "I'm a huge He-Man fan, especially in 81-82."
    Also Kevin, prior: "I was never a He-Man fan"; "I'm not really much of a He-Man fan."

    /Several months later sbsp.meme

    "Basically, this is Teela's show."

    Womp womp womp.

    Go in SUPER SUPER low expectations. Fuck Kevin Smith, and fuck Tee-Man.

    Annndddd... it is even worse than the leaks, some of them from March (that Kevin Smith lied and said wasn't true), led anyone willing to listen to believe.

    They conned people to tune in for the "WHOA ANAIMATIONZ IS GREATZ0RZ!" only to stab the fans in the back. The ol bait and switch rope-a-dope rouse.

    Haven't been following this but it sounds like Charlie's Angels/Ghostbusters/Birds of Prey/WW83-itis. Re-imagine existing source material as woke for the sake of being woke and satisfy nobody. Go make your own awesome story about that stuff and let it stand on it's own. It comes across as petty and demeaning to have to use an existing franchise as a crutch for a current socio-political thing.

    It's funny how much you hear about how caveman-like pre-woke culture was. And in ways, some things were but they were even cringey at the time anyway. But tons of shows or movies or novels or plays with protagonists that were female, minority, gay, trans, some combination of those things, etc. or had a diverse cast because that's just how it was written organically.
