Game....Blouses.

Have you watched any of it?

I guess that must have been where the misunderstanding began? I thought my question asking about how other characters were responding to the main character made it pretty obvious that I hadn't seen it. Also, it bears repeating, I really was not trying to attack the show. The thread was chill, so I was kind of taken aback by the response, and just responded inkind.

E:

vvv I actually have seen one episode, but it was one in the middle of a season, so I didn't have a lot of background on the characters. And as far as "saying stupid things on the internet", chalk it up to an unfortunate misunderstanding about the question I was asking.

That's not how TVIV works, just look at the early parts of the Orville thread where it was just star trek people talking about how terrible it was without ever watching an episode or planning on ever watching an episode.

"Crime fighting devil you say? How do you guys like your serial killing rapist tv show, eh?"

Yeah, I missed out on that one.

Haha, well as I've explained that wasn't actually what I was trying to ask, but regardless the answer apparently is: "a lot."

This is Canada. It snows nine months of the year, and hails the other three.

Just watch an episode and form a proper opinion before saying stupid things on the internet please.

It's probably how it should work, or at least going into the thread with an open mind, but this is the land of hate-watching. Orville thread was full of people trying to bitch out the show before it'd even aired, citing reviews that once the show started airing pretty much everyone agreed made no drat sense at all.

I'd say he's actually more like a celestial civil servant - given a job he absolutely hates and doesn't see the point of, is continually blamed by everyone for it as if it was his idea to begin with, and his superiors don't say 'yeah, this is my decision and he's just carrying out my orders' but make it out to be his problem, with a shrug and 'what can I do?' Then of corse he quits, thinking it's all bullshit, leaving everyone scrambling around to fix the massive hole in their system, and then another civil servant (Amanadiel) gets sent to sort it out, to his extreme annoyance.

We all thought this was about crime of the week - it's not, it's about gently caress ups in public policy.

Edit: so far, I'm not really getting into season 3 yet. After how brilliant 2 was, it feels like everyone's regressed a bit. I hope the main plot picks up soon so we can see more of their emotional depth.

I just re-watched the whole show and binging it made this especially noticeable. It's frustrating to see the characters go through development only to backslide again.

This last episode (3.2) was one of my least favorite of the entire series. The music was really good, there were some solid lines, but overall it sucked. Making Smallville carry story weight when he can't act his way out of a cardboard box seems like a terrible idea. Can we get more Maize and/or Trixie instead, please?

The version of The Devil you are talking about here doesn't even exist in the scriptures used by rural American death cults.

In the bible, the Devil is basically The Biggest rear end in a top hat Prosecuting Attorney in Divine Court looking for reasons you should go to Hell. Lucifer is a separate entity altogether.

Also, Hell is just a desert with extreme heat and fire and undying maggots eating your flesh. No custom torments. That idea was Milton's.

One of the things I really like about this show is that they don't overdo the comedy-relief supporting cast. Any other show would be drowning us in Maize and Trixie scenes until we were completely sick of both of them.

I assume that we've been getting so much Ella because they've not been able to use Maize (Lesley-Ann Brandt's pregnancy) and Trixie (because the erratic production order would make it look like she was ageing weirdly, maybe?)

I'm surprised they've not had Tricia Helfer back, since she's still being credited as a regular.

Ah well hopefully they add some other supporting cast members that wouldn't be out acted by a cardboard cutout of themselves, and they have Ella go through some proper character development and tone down a bit.

I was wondering wtf that meant.

I know it's latin for Joy, but I'm guessing it's a comic reference (and I've never read much of the comic).
