No doubt!
Ill always remember a particular broadcast;
I had made uniform changes and made a big deal of it in my pressers and then played you, which didnt go well for me, which I expected.
So I was reluctant to see that game's recap, and you spared me a dismal harangue, but did lob this jab, and I think this is verbatim...
"The Mean Machine looked great in their new uniforms as Flash Quentin ran by them"

Good times indeed



Starting at 3:44.   :D

The Boys
S1 & 2


Im not a huge super hero movie (tv) fan as you may know. I like them, and a few years ago I did watch most of the MCU films to get caught up so I could enjoy the last couple in order, but still, I think it's overdone.
The Boys. You know what it's about so I'll spare you.
The nuts and bolts; I liked S2 more than S1.
And here's the nitpicky stuff, and I dont know why, but zeroing in on these things cancels my immersion.
I seriously dislike the super quick cut fight scenes. It's used to cover up the lack of athleticism from the actors, I get it, and I dont know the answer. Get better actors? Because if you dont do those tight shot quick cut scenes, you get to see the full Jackie Chan like shots, which are great, unless it's Drew Baryrmore's wire work in Charlie's Angels. Not sure which is worse.
I digress.

In the interest of brevity, Ill just say, it was entertaining. Not overly though and I probably wouldn't suggest it to anyone that wasnt a super hero fan because it is quite campy while trying to take itself a bit too serious IMO. I did really like the tone of S2 along with the message seemingly swiped right out of today's social and political happenings.

3/5


Thanks for not spoiling anything - I'm a couple episodes into season 2.  I am a big superhero movie fan and even some of the tv stuff.  So I'm guessing I'm not this show's target audience, but I dig it.  Karl Urban is fantastic; Judge Dredd, Riddick, Star Trek and even liked his take on Skourge in Ragnarok but not sure he isn't at his pure best here.  Not much of a fan of the gore and twisted sex but almost has to be there in a world that lets Homelander exists.  I am interested in how they keep him at bay.  Still a little more than I'd like my kids to see but now school and things are opening up I hope to have a shot to plow through season 2.

This looks like an interesting thread topic.  I think I understand it.  Let me give it a shot...

Ahem.

The Last Jedi is the greatest Star Wars movie ever made.

Hi everyone - not sure if I need to make an introductions thread or a sorry I've been away thread or whatever, but this felt like a good place to say hello.   :)

BOJACK/BUC/JETFEVER - sorry on the loss of your uncle and sorry trolls exist.  I continue to hope that society gets better at handling them but the anonymity of technology provides cover for the worst of them.  I would kill to be 33 again, but can't say I would do it better.  I fully expect to be 62 and wonder what the hell was wrong with me at 47.

CREWE - awesome that you picked up the guitar!  JUST JAM.  Playing is it's own reward.

NORM - I don't know how you manage to keep your sanity engaging like you do on Facebook.  These days, I type anything politically related that hints in one direction or the other and I fear the apocalypse. 

TIDER - sorry to hear about your divorce but pumped to hear things have turned around for you, especially with someone "a bit younger" than you!   8)

Sure thing. I'm normally on only during the weekend. And have only done the story aspect of this.

What alliance did you join?

I think .... Breton?  Is that a thing?  And the alliance that was on the left.

Can you tell I haven't played very recently. ;)

I've got this on the PS4 nut.  Haven't done any of the party quests yet.  Let me know if you want to team up sometime.

Well this game is not at all what I thought, lol.  Turn based football.  It is kind of different tho, which is good. :)

Send me an invite if the PS4 league gets going!

A lot of "network partners," but missing the necessary network to regularly broadcast the games.

Since we have some folks who watched Breaking Bad, I want to put a question out there...am I the only one who was disappointed in the finale? To me, it just didn't have that feel of closure, or maybe something was lacking or missing...I don't know. It just felt as if they could have done better.
yes i do agree, it could have been better. I feel they did on the other hand wrap it up, and leave it open for a spin off.

Couple of thoughts  maybe it could have been better, but given the recent finales of some shows, it could have been much, much worse.  I think Jessie's future is the one thing you can say had lack of closure - I can't imagine it being far from the local psych ward and maybe the writers couldn't either - and maybe they just didn't want to put him there.  But I was satisified with it.  I agree, could have been better I'm sure, but I wouldn't know what to change to make it that way.
