Doctor Who (It took a year off so I say it counts)
I don't know if it counts because it's also a returning show but hell yeah, BCS is back!

Is this the last season? I haven't watched since S2, it's an amazing show but it stresses me out so much I want to be able to just watch the whole thing in a go.

As for Better Call Saul, "There will be six seasons," Esposito said. "It seems like that's the way, the comfortable way, to end this show."

Mission Hill, much like Daria, is way too entrenched in a deeply Gen X worldview to work today. Sure, you'd get a cult nostalgia audience but it would baffle anyone under 30 or over 50, which is not an idea that would be particularly attractive to advertisers or streaming services.

Explain CBS catering to olds for the past 50 years.

I had a customer once get absolutely enraged when I said I didn't care for the show. I didn't even say I hated it, just that it didn't work for me anymore. Dude flipped his poo poo and I thought he would actually attack me.

So basically just an extremely typical comic book store interaction? I don't miss that poo poo. loving weird rear end nerds. Normal nerds are fine but come on dude. I never worked at one but my sis ran one so I hung out way too much.

I was one of the folks excited for him to take over Dr Who and was faced with every single episode being a maze theme and they all loving sucked.
As for Sherlock, season 1 holds up and everything after episode 1 of season 2 is complete poo poo. It just gets worse and worse like a loving cancer.

Lastly, the reviews I read about Dracula are all saying it's really good and even "fun". I had considered checking it out but y'all are giving me pause. So no one in here watched it and are making GBS threads on it? Or is it actual poo poo.

I never said RTD was a sex pest or even suggested it? WTH?

Also I remember an interview with RTD where he was saying there was nothing wrong with pushing some boundaries with sexuality in regards to Dr. Who because I very much remember it came off as weird. But then in hindsight maybe he was referring to introducing LGBTQ caracters which if that's what he meant, that's cool and good.

Batman Beyond having Batman as a broken shut in was something that blew my mind as a kid, but was a perfect setup to a far future Batman sequel.

I thought that Christopher Nolan's the dark Knight returns was inspired by both the dark Knight returns and Batman beyond.

I could only imagine how awesome a Christopher Nolan Batman returns elseworld film would be with them sticking to the actual storyline of the comic book. That would've been so loving awesome. Considering his whole trilogy was against fascism I would love to see his take on Superman.

That's legit why I want one. Either that or I need to run some ethernet cable to my laptop. It is my server. The problem I'm running into is it is too much data over my Wi-Fi network if I want true 4K TV. If I do a full data feed it buffers like poo poo.

Iirc, in the prequel comic to JJ Trek, B4 installs Data's memory chip, which instantly overwrites B4 and revives Data.

What about the mumbo jumbo "But his positronic brain isn't as sophisticated blah blah blah" that essentially said he'd be a dumb? I need realism in my Trek drat it!

Also B-4 is the dumbest loving name. Who the gently caress ever made Nemesis should be ashamed of themselves.

I'm loving "The Circle" on Netflix and it's such a guilty pleasure show but hits all the pleasure points, from the catfish spy game to the actual emotional eliminations, to the challenges and games.

Social Media sucks, but that rear window Exposure is brilliant

Did you watch the UK version? I loved season 1 but they changed it to where it sucked in season 2. It was way more like Big Brother the second time around. I don't have that much time to dedicate to a reality show. I wonder how the Netflix version stacks up.

Ok so, Westworld Season 3. This poo poo never came out? The trailer with Aaron Paul came out like 7 months ago. I didn't finish season one because it was a bit too rapey. I never watched season 2. Should I go back and watch them?

Oscar chat: The Joker got 11 nominations. It wasn't even a good movie imo. It was Ok, just not all that great. The Irishman, 1917 and Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood follow with 10 nominations each. The Irishman was good just it could have been better if Scorsese cut like an hour off. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood was pretty good though.

Toy chat: My favorite story so far was where the guys who made the He-Man toys were arguing that the existing mold for battle cat was out of scale and the guy replied with "I don't give a gently caress ... Put a fuckin' saddle on it."


Edit: follow up to Oscar chat: Remember last year Bohemian Rhapsody won the Oscar for best editing? lol the Oscars are full of poo poo.

The dislike for Westworld s2 is because the plot was legitimately bad and full of stupid poo poo. The "Welcome to Westworld" scene, the data in Abernathy's head(which was a s2 retcon that made the whole thing from s1 even more stupid), Dolores finally smuggling things out of the park, random character is actually a robot, the whole flooding of the valley "mystery" which made 0 sense because there were a ton of people who witnessed it and probably more stuff I am forgetting.

S2 was told in a convoluted manner, but the story itself was also poor and nonsensical if you even stop to think about it.

Thanks for all the spoilers! Really cool!
