Probably. Kind of like how Lil Abner was a cultural phenomenon back in the day. It ran for more than forty years during the mid 1900s and even had cartoon deals, now it's all but forgotten except for obscure references. I'm sure Netflix's shows will lose their appeal as soon as they become irrelevant to newer generations of viewers. Shows that bank on current events or nostalgia have a limited shelf life.

No way dude people will be watching House of Cards for 100 years just like we still listen to Eddie Cantor

The idea of adapting Rogue Squadron to a movie is so loving batshit, because if you remember the original games, it was just filling in the gaps between the movies - and it kicked rear end! Didn't go over the top, relatively grounded, and you got to hang out with Luke and Wedge and the rest of the star warriors. There really isn't a story there.

So yeah, Jenkins is doomed from the start.

There was also a comic book series, and all those X-Wing books were about Rogue Squadron too.

I think the left is expanding into movie/gaming shows. I stumbled upon Hasan Piker twitch steam by aciddent. He is basically a woke radio host that does politicial commentary in the afternoon (AM radio) and plays game in the evening (FM radio) for 11 hours everyday. His target audience probably have never heard of AM radio.

I can't tell if it's easier to get an audience or it's just easier to produce content, but it seems like everyone eventually goes "What if I just streamed games?"

I think itís great that DC/Warner Bros doesnít feel slave to continuity and uniformity and universe-building at the expense of being able to make unique, interesting, standalone movies. It would be nice if one or two of them actually turned out to be good, though.

Yeah, Keaton is fine if they're going to make one of those "Batman is old as poo poo!" comics.

You don't need a "main Batman". Maybe if you're making a bunch of Justice League movies, but don't let that stop you from making The Long Halloween or whatever just get another Batman for that everyone wants to play Batman anyway so you won't have any trouble, I mean has anyone ASKED Daniel Radcliffe if he wants to play Batman?

It wasn't the Jedi. The book is about Padme and one of the things she tries to do is go back to Tatooine to liberate the slave population there using her connections with the Senate and to also find Shmi, but they can't locate Shmi and Palpatine keeps stonewalling efforts to break up the slave trade in the most transparently "I AM GOING TO TURN EVIL" way possible.

I think people take a lot of disposable, bullshit media seriously because it's presented in a way that's meant to be taken seriously. Maybe that helps sell the product? Like if you're purporting to have a show or film that examines the human condition or the drama of family conflict or any mature theme, then the standard of criticism is going to be pretty high.

Star trek has always had dumb stuff in there, but it was a show that tried to have serious poo poo going on. So when Discovery is trying to do that, and constantly acts like it's doing that, but it's just all bad or hosed up, I can't enjoy it as a sci-fi shoot'em up romp. But take the Orville where they come right out and say that it's not trying that hard, and I judge it at a lower bar. Same thing goes with lower budget shows like Killjoys that practically tell the audience "yeah this poo poo is dumb, now watch me punch this guy"

Yeah, if WW84 had been the same tone as the beginning of it (not the lesbian island olympics part), with the goofy 80s mall robbery and Kristen Wiig being all jokey jokey and Pedro Pascal hamming it up and a literal wishing stone, it would have gotten along fine. But like halfway through it swerves real serious.

Maybe Chris Pine is the problem. I don't dislike him, but they cast Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig, who are actors who are charismatic enough to drag along the Gal Gadot dead weight, you have to let them actually do that. It goes to total poo poo when he shows up.

Chris Pine is amazing and my favourite thing about those awful films. Heís insanely underrated. Hell or High Water is the good stuff.

He's very charming but his presence raises so many of the questions that the film shouldn't be concerned with. It sends Wonder Woman into a self-pitying spiral for the climax too.

I feel like there's a version of that script where Pedro Pascal straight-up ganks the wishing stone and Wonder Woman and her weirdo friend who's clearly in love with her have a globe-trotting adventure chasing him and Kristen Wiig just takes Chris Pine's place.

Speaking of Netflix originals, they're finally releasing part 3 (out of 4) of Disenchantment. January 15th. Hopefully the very long break gave them some time to work out the show's kinks. The trailer looks...better than the show was.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwuxsXfwl2I

I think the lesson here is that Matt Groening is good at contract negotiations, getting them a deal where all 4 parts were paid for and Netflix couldn't back out.

Couple of gags got a chuckle out of me, but it looks like they're leaning even more into the metaplot. Who could care?

I think Groening would have been given this many seasons without a contract locking it in at the beginning. I know Futurama was big for Netflix when they had it. If you were Netflix, you'd want to give him as much leeway as you could just because you want to be in the Matt Groening business and get first crack at any future projects.

I dunno if that'll extend beyond Season 4 though. This show's a bit of a turd and it can't be doing well.

The thing about Disenchantment is that it is actually just two seasons divided in half. That part 2 was just the second half of the first season, so it was produced at the same time as Part 1. So Part 3 is where we are going to see if they actually made adjustments to fix the show, or it will just keep being poo poo. I have my money on poo poo, but you never know.

The first joke in that trailer is about the elf wanting to gently caress the princess so I'm gonna guess they have not addressed the glaring problems.
