    SO MUCH HYPE

    I just finished season 1 of Channel Zero. It was shockingly good.



  • The Flash last night was tooooooooo much.

    More references to other DCU characters.
    Batman Beyond references.
    ARGH! NERD LEVEL WAS OVER 9000!

    I totally called out that she would be [codename] and that they would change her origins to [origin].

    XD

    Right. The fact that her first appearance she had a side braid I was like 'OH GOD SHE's GOING TO BE <CODENAME>!'

    I didn't expect the references she made to Batman Beyond and the other big one she made.

    Honestly, it was late when I watched it and I didn't catch the references.

    I don't think this is super spoilery, and I can't find a spoiler syntax for the board.

    She referenced Batman Beyond with the slang 'schway' and she referenced the Legion of Super Heroes by name dropping Lightning Lad, and referenced Atom II, Ryan Choi.

    The little eyeball symbol to the far right of the editing tags is the spoiler tag.

    Iron Fist is cancelled.

    I wish I liked it more myself but very little about either season worked for me - there were just too many weak points, and unexpected at that. The protagonist's acting was piss poor, which did no favors to the show, but I can excuse that since maybe he had good reads and they hoped he'd develop with time.

    However the story and pacing itself didn't work well either, which had a major impact, as secondary arcs and support characters irrelevant to the main story were given too much focus and screen time. The poor choreography - for a martin arts show of all things - really put the nail in that coffin; Daredevil's in its first season blew this series' right out of the water in comparison.

    They also never portrayed Dany as someone... well, powerful. We never saw it. Every other Netflix character was a badass in different ways, but all he seemed to do is struggle to beat second stringers - he wasn't even given the chance to fight the main villain in either of the show's two seasons' finales! Come on.

    RIP, but deservedly so. A shame.

    Really, all Iron Fist did is make me want a show about Ward Meachum.


  • Pitcrew

    I think it's telling when the best appearance of a character was his cameo on someone else's show. (Iron Fist in Luke Cage season 2)

    I really liked Titans. All the casting choices were really good, the effects were pretty decent (for a TV show) and hopefully when the full roster is on the screen it won't feel crowded.


  • Pitcrew

    @arkandel I was not anticipating enjoying it, but they're was something oddly compelling. There were a few eyes rolling moments but I was fascinated by somethings and confused by others.



  • Yes. She is the Doctor.

    OOOOH, that's right, schway is from BB. Honestly I internalized that shit so young I didn't even recognize it. XD

    Nora's the nerd we all needed.
    Now we get Batwoman this season too, so...


  • Pitcrew

    The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell on Netflix is absolutely delightful, assuming you enjoy cooking/crafting shows, Henson puppets, and the macabre.

    That being said, arachnophobics may want to watch with a friend who can give them a heads up during a couple of brief sequences.

    It looked so horrible in the trailer(s).

    Plus, I mean, what's with Beast Boy showing up in my backyard? There are better places in the world than Covington, Ohio, man.

    I read today that Luke Cage is also cancelled. Word is that Disney will be cancelling their Netflix Marvel shows once their contract obligations are done so they can be relaunched on the Disney Play exclusive streaming channel that will come out in late 2019.
