It's 2020 homie no one uses dvds

I was Forbidden from watching the Simpson's as a boy because of Bart's sass mouth so I first watched the show dubbed to a bunch of VHS tapes my best friends in college had in 1999.

I watched Max Headroom on DVD this weekend. I went into it hoping that I would barely notice the difference, but... I very much noticed the difference. Poorly-mastered SD looks like poo poo.

If you watch old BTAS, the quality of the animation varies wildly because they used seven different international animation studios in order to get s1 out on time. The ones from AKOM are so bad they fired the firm. TMS/Spectrum were probably the best. TMS animated the title sequence and some other episodes.

As long as you have a TV that can handle HDR and Dolby Vision, it's very worth it.

You don't get much from the resolution bump, but the color depth is worth it, especially if you like a lot of movies shot on film.

Even though I've never seen them, some of the homages are so ingrained in mass culture that I get them right away, like the starkly lit-from-below fang face. But mostly my dracula knowledge is the book (which I don't like, gently caress off forever epistolary novels), parodies and "modern reimaginings" where the fact that he's Dracula is this big twist or he's skulking about hiding his identity. So it's just really funny to me to watch all these characters be like "Another murder! Who do you think it could've been, Count Dracula?" as he's standing there in the full on Bela Lugosi get up going "The mystery is.....eating away at me my dear boy". It's a very funny show imo. I've not seen the third one, which I hear is divisive, but since I'm enjoying the more meta/bonkers aspects of the show I think I'll dig it.

Look if Netflix is going to make a gay Jesus show they have to make a straight Dracula one, that's just Fair and Balanced

I haven't read the comics, but that looks a lot more YA than I expected...

Yeah it's been a few since I read the comics but I recall they were darker than the Danny Elfman wannabe trailer music would imply. But they could also be going for a change in tone, that reminds me a lot of the promotional stuff for the Unfortunate Events series.

I guess I'll give them a re-read, see if the art is as bad as I recall.

Aye.

THe practical stunt work, in ship-to-ship battles and other action set pieces, is as good as I've ever seen on TV. Toby Stephens is fantastic as Cap'n Flint. It's an interesting mix of fiction and history, with real world pirates like Jack Rackham and Charles Vane alongside Long John Silver and Billy Bones. It's kind of a loose prequel to Treasure Island, I guess. Not every performance is great, but some are outstanding, and some characters you think you don't like end up growing on you. At the very least it told the story it wanted to and wrapped up quite satisfactorily, imo.

"The optimistic future" is one of Roddenberry's mandates and led to great rules like "no inter-personal conflict anymore because we've all evolved beyond it". Don't let your premise get in the way of good storytelling. DS9 is the least Roddenberry trek and it's not coincidence that it's also by far the best.
