My two faves for sure. It was hard to go past the "Ula from Shortie" at first, but now she's Bobbie through and through.

Stick with it Wazza, it's a very good show.

They're making a Metalocalypse movie. Best news all year. That means more Dethklok!

I was a little too young to enjoy He-Man in the 80's, but the remake does look pretty nice.

Does look like a clean up rather than a "re-imagining" so could be good. If you haven't (apart from Tiger King, this was a compulsory binge during Covid?), check out NetFlix's "The toys that made us" - there is a good Masters episode at S01E03 - but in hindsight it might pay to watch the Star Wars and Barbie ones first as I think the action figure evolution stems from them - followed by GI Joe

Also, whilst I admit it may be an acquired taste, Guy Williams' exposé on the Christchurch Boy Racers, followed by an in-depth investigative piece on dildo theft in Huntly was quite an eye opener last night.

Mrs StN - "What did he just say?"

StN - "Um - he said no one wanted to drive that Demio after one of his mates got anal fisting juices all over the interior..."

Yea that's a great little Netflix series. I got a real kick out of the Transformers one. I just saw there's a season 3 I haven't seen yet!

Watching Bad Batch. I saw a commentary on how quickly the Empire rose from the Republic, with signs and logos quickly being replaced.

I thought this was pretty clever, very much like the rise of the Nazis and how they had a state within the state ready to quickly swap out existing public functions once they gained power.

I finished watching the Clone Wars series last week. Man, those last four episodes are amazing. I desperately want a Revenge of the Sith re-do that takes Clone Wars into consideration. The fall of Anakin deserves so much better.

Bad Batch

I liked the down-low high-five Wrecker gave Omega in E05, very cute. Feels like we're being set up tho, with Wrecker's control chip playing up.

Fun show so far! Trouble keeping track of where on the time line everything sits sometimes.

I enjoyed Loki. The bar feels so freaking high at the moment tho, I'm worried I've been over indulged with everything Disney is coming out with.

Feels a bit dirty, given how eager I am to grump about Disney's copyright law.

The big mystery in Loki is what is the TVA. It's always challenging to figure out what's an intentional detail and what's a lapse or red herring with these kinds of shows.

Like the TVA seems like it's supposed to be this endless bureaucracy, but it doesn't feel very endless. In fact, it feels decidedly finite.

On thing I noticed was the view that stuns Loki is supposed to be infinite. But if it were infinite, there would be no black spaces. Black space only appears in our universe because the space between us and any potential light source is expanding faster than light can travel through it.

Could just be an oversight, or could be hinting to the fact that it is some kind of illusion despite assurances to the contrary.

Well at this stage the assumption will be
TVA is bad. Maybe actually controlled by one being (I have seen some interesting theories around this) that it is controlled by someone where that particular timeline is the one that they become the ruler, and so has created (or taken over) the TVA to make sure that is the only timeline).
Other baddie lady loki is not actually bad.
And Mr Wilson will get to ride a jetski

Hmm, Im enjoying it.
I was never a fan of him in the MCU, but that maybe because I found the first 2 Thor movies pretty blah.

But definitely enjoying the show
