STOP DOING HEROIN

The current El Rey episode has Chavo/Muertes as the opening match. First off, I totally forgot that Chavo and Muertes had a mini-feud. Second off, Chavo disqualifies himself with a chairshot and immediately gets murdered, so Chavo is an idiot.

E: Oh God this is the episode with Ivelisse/Angelico, AKA Striker and Vampiro's low point.

Was one of the really memorable missteps during the first season. On paper, it was a good idea, like Angelico gets suggestive on Ivelisse both because he's a little creepy but also because he knows it'll gently caress with Havoc and either get him a win by DQ or get Havoc to fast-count out his own girlfriend, which is what the finish was. Makes sense since otherwise he's screwed otherwise with Havoc on guest ref, and set up the further three-way dissension between them. The problem is that it's kind of a thin line to walk during a match and Angelico got a little too far on the rapey side of things. I guess the edited version is much better than how it was live, you can see how many weird cuts there are during the match to make it a little more palatable. That's the good thing about not doing a live program, you can fix the narrative.

Yeah, also Stroud (I think that's who it was, right?) is an idiot who made a way bigger deal out of it than it was.

He did a dark match where they had a valet that introduced him as "Vincent Kennedy Massaro." Don't think that's a spoiler since they've shown no indication of using that live, I think it was just a dark match joke. But you want some instant easy heat in the Temple, oh man, there you go.

Maybe it will be available on demand in HD? I know Xfinity, which also broadcasts in HD, was offering From Dusk Till Dawn in HD on demand last year.

Not that I'm going to wait, I'll cope with SD.

Yeah, I'd prefer not to spoiler tag in here. Maybe when Season 3 tapings start we'll do spoilers just about new talent like we did in the Season 2 hype thread, but I'd rather not have upcoming match spoilers in here. It is an open gameday thread, so if you're not watching at 5 pacific/8 eastern on Wednesdays, you might want to avoid the thread until you see the episode of the week.

Not that I'm a mod or have any power to enforce any of that, but I think it would be good to avoid result spoilers if we can. That stuff is out there to find pretty easily if people want it, and sometimes it can be hard to resist/avoid hitting a spoiler and then you see a glimpse of "EL MARACHI LOCO BECOMES CHAMPION" and you're stuck with that forever.

On the HD front, my local cable provider only has El Rey in low-def too. I ended up downgrading my cable package and subscribing to fubo instead. Lost a bunch of channels I never watch, gained El Rey in HD, and saved like $30 a month.

Dump sling and use fubo.tv instead, I've had a much better experience (and it's cheaper). Unless you really care about the other channels that Sling has.

But yeah, they need a better alternative.

I sent them an email a couple days ago asking for DVR functionality for Lucha Underground and using the terms "matches" a lot, hopefully they will get confused. They do say the DVR thing is still beta, so maybe they will eventually expand it.

From fubo.tv re: the DVR functionality:

quote:

Our DVR feature is still indeed in its beta version, and it is available on our website, iPhone, Android smartphone, and the Amazon Fire TV. With this feature you can preset to record the live match of your choice if you know that you will be missing that match and you will be able to watch at your earliest convenience. It is then recorded and stored for up to 72 hours after the original air.

Currently, this version of the DVR only allows live matches to be recorded. However, once we release the final version of the feature it will allow for more storage space, simultaneous recordings, and the ability to record both live and non-live content. We will indeed also be expanding functionality to all our other apps in the future.

Sounds promising for the future

My cable provider finally started carrying El Ray at the start of the year, so I've been catching up on Wednesdays and this marathon. Outside of the sloppiness from a lot of the roster, I'm loving the way everything is presented. Drago is awesome. Pentagon Jr. is awesome. And the Cage/The Mack match at Ulima Lucha was one of the best things I've seen in a while. All I have left to watch is Ulima Lucha part 2 and I'm ready for season 2.

Yeah, Ultima Lucha is a great top-to-bottom card. The only thing that comes close to a piss break is Texano/Demon, and that was a last-minute audible since they needed someone to take Chavo's spot (who legit tore his hamstring a couple tapings ago).
