...as much revenge as any man could possibly take.


I'm really trying to have an open mind about season 4 but the luster of the product was lost in season 3, a number have stars have left, and the [spoilers] do not sound good at all.

This season I'm going to write off, hope that they get renewed and season 5 comes back as a rebuilding year.

I still like the vignettes and most of the talent, but the atmosphere of the temple is gone. The temple was a character in the show as much as any other, and they've replaced it with this featureless warehouse and lifeless fans who are obviously dubbed over. Don't they have any of the props or sets from the last seasons?

Going through the motions is mostly right, though I think the guys are still working hard in the ring and in the vignettes. It's really the production that's let the show down for me.

Jessie Godderz. Had to look up his name. And gently caress, nobody cares about this show anymore, do they? That break last season really killed it.

Striker is quoting the bible a lot this week. Weird.

It is a national holiday in the States, so why there’s a brand new episode on tonight is beyond me.

Honestly forgot this week. I still care, but the Antonio Cueto thing is just so goofy, even for this show.

One thing I found interesting about this week's episode is that while King Cuerno has turned face, there seems to be some emphasis that he might be the new hero of the show. Pentagon is the ace, but Cuerno is the new protagonist.

Also, I love how instead of building tension over the gauntlet situation, Cage and Cuerno remind us that they are total bros for some unexplained reason.

It was a pretty throwaway episode, which I guess is as good a week as any to have one. Daga is still fantastic and I'm so glad he's back. Kobra has learned some poo poo during her time away but her movement still feels a bit unnatural. Still, I don't think she's an albatross around the show's neck like she was before.

I don't get the appeal of Swagger but people seem to love him so hopefully that enthusiasm will go somewhere.

Hard to tell if they wrote Fenix off or if he's gonna come back from the dead again.

I'm all for Cuerno becoming a major protagonist. He's so good and he ate poo poo for this show for so long. Let this be his time in the sun.

Camera work feels really weak. I wonder if one of the big cost-cutting measures was all those camera crew and their sick rigs. There were lots of cuts in post-production that felt off and like they wouldn't have been made but for the absence of better shots. I dunno. I feel like the wrestlers continue to deliver and everything else is coming up short. I hope the magic can come back.

Yes, but the show might not remember that.

Police investigations just end when the guy they're investigating for Every Crime gets killed, right?

Well their cop captain is Katrina's mom, so she might have swept it under the rug.

Those were some amazing visuals.

I don't mind these early couple episodes getting rid of some people they're finished with.

This was the best episode of the season so far. I'm back to being hopeful for the show. Fun matches, really neat plot turns, stuff to look forward to.

I like the twist on the whole "who has the power" dynamic between Muertes and Catrina, since Mil was getting too big for his britches as his reincarnations progressed. And the Rabbit Tribe is gold at all times.

Yeah, Rabbit Tribe is used just often enough to make it super fun.

Also.

I also love how with each important kill and each resurrection, Mil Muertes's gear gets more ornate, lately with more and more red highlights. It's like his ring gear is a phylactery slowly filling with blood, and it is metal as poo poo.

He's had the red contacts and it really caps off the look.

For now at least, as long as the boss (Killer Kross) doesn't actually wrestle, because what I have seen so far, he absolutely loving sucks.
