There is no sign of land.
You are coming down with me, hand in unlovable hand.

And I hope you die.

I hope we both die.

I think he can hear you, Ray.
I'm fairly early in on TED LASSO, partly because with episode 2 (the thing with the photo) I was sure the show was about to go down a road I wasn't that interested in, but the third episode was a lovely twist on what I thought was coming.

It's funny that I knew Brett Goldstein (who pays Roy Kent) from his podcast Movies To Be Buried with, which is a delight. He also sounds completely different. It's worth checking out though, he's had some great guests on.

That is what makes Ted Lasso so great. It makes you think it is doing this cliche thing, but it does a twist on it. This is especially excellent when it comes to the 2 main female leads.

Martin Scorsese filmed a 3-hour SCTV reunion special in 2018 including Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short and others. Apparently even Rick Moranis came out of retirement to be in it but there's been no news about it since then. Can't be good.

I still don't know what they are expecting to happen with this show. Surely it's just gonna get canned immediately.

The way animation works, there's at least a second season in the works.

With hourlong(!) animated episodes, they must be really loving confident with this show. Or maybe Alexa just spat it out when she was asked for a franchising property "almost exactly like The Boys, while also containing a completely different premise to The Boys".

Because adult-focused dramatic animation rarely ever does well in the west. And they haven't really been showing off what the show actually is (namely the gore) so I can imagine a lot of people being blindsided by that. Maybe they're banking on some The Boys crossover appeal but I doubt it's going to happen. It's not like the comic even has a huge fanbase.

Well anime is getting more popular and less niche, not to mention there's a heavy overlap with millennials and 'cartoons that look like justice league'

Castlevania is in a similar situation and it seems to do well enough. Tastes change, after all, and dramatic animation isn't as weird as it used to be.

It was gore-heavy when the Big Twist happened early in the run.

Since then there's been more gore, genocide, male rape, Quiverfull-style strategic breeding and a bunch of other poo poo that most certainly is not just a teen power fantasy.

Yeah Invincible is ostensibly a teen comic in the way a lot of 90s comics like Spawn were teen comics.

Rogen and Goldberg are producing. I imagine they are expecting a smash hit success like The Boys which they may be onto because people were saying the same stuff about that show before it came out

Was there no thread for Dead To Me ever? It felt like it was all the talk at one point but can’t find one. Curious to see if other people had as many ‘oh gently caress!’ shouts as I did, and how people felt towards the characters.
