This conversation was started by someone asking 'is it worth watching Westworld S2?' and we have a general unwritten rule of keeping quiet about past shows in the chat thread when we know someone's in the process of catching up.

That's kinda what I was thinking. Now going into the second season I already know that the robot folk gain some sort of freedom. I just thought that's a bit excessive but it's not a super big deal. Also CD's eternal spoiler rule is effing stupid imo

I have honestly never heard anyone call it good. The general opinion is that it is pretty bad.

I wondered because it was on one of those Rotten Tomato listicles of the best sci-fi TV shows. I'm about 3 episodes in and I'm gonna bail. It's pretty lame.



Oh and all this talk about popes, I know it's not a TV show but The Two Popes was great and it's on Netflix so go check it out.

If this wasn't staring Vin Diesel I'd say it looks like it could be good but it does so I am almost certain it's gonna suck.

I haven't seen it because I was preŽxhausted by the discourse, but is it even really a comic book movie? It's not adapted from anything, it doesn't bear any resemblance to actual comics or movie Jokers in that it's a definitive origin story, which has been off limits for the character's whole history. If you changed the name of the city it takes place in and called him, say, Pagliacci rather than Joker, would there be anything comic book-y in it

Not in the least.

Easier/better to just have us all discuss it in one place than split it imo but it's up to you nerds!!!

I collect silver coins. One time on Reddit I tried to say that silver coins with swastikas on them from the Nazi era are gross and bad and I was ridiculed and attacked so yeah. Reddit sucks in a lot of ways. And I mean I got dunked on hard. "It's just a piece of history stupid! Why are you trying to change history, stupid?". Meanwhile if you took the time to look at the profiles of the people saying that I was stupid they were super hard-core Trump supporters that were really racist but no it's my fault for not appreciating swastikas?

There is a huge Venn diagram crossover between people that collect precious metals and doomsday preppers.

I don't like to talk about collecting silver on Reddit anymore. Please don't dunk on me for not being a Nazi. Also I only have like $100 worth of silver anyway. Those guys are assholes.

Honestly the best description I've seen of Reddit is the GBS thread that is subtitled "there are only two genders but 15 different kinds of pedophiles"

Edit: thank you for coming to my Ted talk: Reddit is gross. But super cool when you wanna look up really cute doggie pictures

I find that trying to discuss any TV or movie stuff on Reddit is unpleasant. Everything is a huge dogpile and it doesn't matter if it's critically acclaimed or touted as dogshit you're more than likely to get a weird reactionary flood of bad opinions. It's like the Watchmen thread but every single discussion.

Also I just learned Jared Harris is gonna play Hari in the Foundation series. gently caress! I hate Foundation just so fuckin' hard. Maybe they'll cut the political bullshit drama but then it'd be only like maybe one episode. Also David S.

Peacock (the NBC streaming service) is doing a The Adventure Zone animated series. Hopefully they got a better deal on that than the MBMBaM series, which somehow ended up with them getting absolutely no money from digital purchases.

However, I did try giving the new Graduation arc a shot since they're back to being D&D-based (5E) and it's actually really very good. They've only done like five or six episodes so far, so it's still early to jump in.

I just want to point out that Josh Gad is worth an estimated $12,000,000. If he put that in a zero risk 6% annuity and never touched the principal and never worked again he'd earn $26,000 every two weeks for the rest of his life.

We're on a TV forum bitching about how we don't like him. I'm not defending him, I'm just saying obviously some people like him. gently caress I wish I had that kind of cash.

So I signed up for CBS all access commercial free for Picard. You could tell where the commercial breaks were because it breaks away for them but immediately comes back however at one of the breaks there was literally one ad. I know I shouldn't be complaining but I'm wondering is that normal? I thought with subscriptions they have to call it limited ads or something.

Has that happened for anyone else?

What does CBS All Access even have besides the new Star Trek shows and Jordan Peele's Twilight Zone?

I mentioned it a couple of pages ago but in trying to justify CBS all access instead of just Picard I discovered Bob Hearts Abishola. It's a typical Chuck Lorre show but it's pretty progressive although it does use some dumb stereotypes. I'm still enjoying it at least. Other than that, not really from what I can see. Heck it doesn't even have all of the shows I expected it to have because for the past 20 years they've sold off some partnership properties.
