What's on TV?

Shingi is totally a potato. 

Rei is a blank mask. 

most of the emotion (except embarrassment?)  is hidden, its probably on purpose.  

I have always thought of it as dysfunctional teenagers and barely functional adults (probably) try to save the world.

there are no heroes, every character is broken & barely holding it together.  

 

 

Logically that makes sense, except that every scene is so blank-slate to me that it is all put together with "Big Bad Thing Is Destroying City" and "Our CounterSmashBot Sucks Butt We Are Toast". Of course people are going to be broken. Would be nice to actually see them doing things more than just being empty.

Got done with three seasons of Agents of Shield, not a bad show. I like that Marvel maintains the shared universe throughout their film/tv. Started the fourth season, not sure I am going to like it, namely because of Ghost Rider. I know, I know, the current comic incarnation of him drives a car, but if you are called Ghost Rider, a car just doesn't fit. You don't ride a car (unless you are a passenger, or are roof-surfing).

5th and current seasons are amazing, much better than the rest so far.

Huh. Around S5 is where I stopped SHIELD. It just got repetitive and overblown. Probably enjoyably to an extent, but the second setting change that happened in rapid occurrence made me go "meh". I can't access it anymore now though, so it would be tough to catch up. There are some great characters on there though.

 

Did just finish watching Dororo. I really liked that one. Had a standard bittersweet ending that I felt didn't fully fit, but whatever. I liked the character journey that happened throughout the show.

S5 had them launched into the future, complete with great visuals of the destroyed remnants of Earth. S6 brings them back home, and so far makes interesting use of some of the major characters that died in S5. I was surprised when it got renewed for S5 after the lackluster S3/S4, but very happy that we have a S6 now.

I'm really behind on a lot of shows, so I've been trying to catch up. 

 

Just started season 2 of Supergirl and am really impressed with their version of Superman. Can he replace dour, grumpy Henry Cavill in the movies please? :wub:

My family considers the Agents of Shield Ghost Rider the best version on any screen.

 

My kids watched the Nicholas Cage movies just to razz them.

Isn’t he lovely? Everything Superman should be: Kind, modest, understanding, and fundamentally decent.

Is there more Clark on recent Supergirl episodes? I haven't kept up with those since moving north. Despite being filmed here, we don't have access to the CW app so no more streaming of it. I liked him in the previous times I saw him. He was a nice version (I'm also partial to Brandon Routh as Superman, despite him being The Atom on LoT, but SG's version is good too)

 

Also can't watch The Magicians - extra dumb because they were literally filming at the physics/chemistry building on campus yesterday. :grr:

He shows up every once in a while. I guess they don't want to overshadow Supergirl too much. He plays a major part in this season's crossover episodes.

 

I think he might be our family's favorite screen Superman.

Routh was a vastly underestimated Superman (other issues with Superman Returns brought the movie down). I thought he did a great job, way better than Cavill. Love him in the Arrowverse.

 

Though I do have a rule: the same actor can't portray two different superheroes in the same universe. Kind of drives me crazy. But I'll allow DC to get away with it as multiverses are a large part of their storylines. So Routh gets away with it. I allow less slack for Marvel movies as they share the same universe. But again, Chris Evans gets away with being Captain America because the Fox versions of the Fantastic Four don't count.

More so than Christopher Reeve? Say it ain't so!

I won't argue with you there, but at least he rides a motorcycle... And the shoutout in the first movie to Carter Slade is a worthy moment.

He's definitely ours.

 

Oddly I didn't recognise the actor, Tyler Hoechlin, even though he played one of my favourite characters in Teen Wolf. Don't judge me, I have to babysit occasionally ::P:

 

I probably didn't recognise him because he hardly ever smiled and played such a grim and conflicted character. 

 

He also played Tom Hanks son in Road to Perdition ::o:

Just finished watching Chernobyl. Didn't actually know it was hyped that much, but it was pretty good.

 

Especially the first three episodes revolving around the recovery operations around the accident plant were pretty awesomely shot.

Christopher Reeve was a sweetheart and his Superman was delightful. But I like this Superman’s forthrightness.

I just finished watching The Inbetweeners with my son (2nd time thru for me, 1st for him). The good BBC version, not the horrible MTV one. This weekend we're going to rent the movies from Amazon - I was pissed when I found out that Netflix had dropped them even tho it still had the series...

 

Oh and Yellowstone is back! Yay!
