1883 was amazing...just finished it. Gritty, great casting, fucking grim portrayal of the Wild West.

Life on the frontier was not a walk in the park....even crossing a river was bad news.

The Boys season 3 plot description looks kinda shark-jumpy... but will probably watch anyway as sheer bonkers ultraviolence is part of the show (and even more so in the comic)

Quote:
It's been a year of calm. Homelander's subdued. Butcher works for the government, supervised by Hughie of all people. But both men itch to turn this peace and quiet into blood and bone. So when The Boys learn of a mysterious Anti-Supe weapon, it sends them crashing into the Seven, starting a war, and chasing the legend of the first Superhero: Soldier Boy.

Thumbs up

Oh mang, I wanted to be the cool one to mention it.

I don't usually go for drama, but I like the kitchen/burger place/spacies angle.

Rick and Morty S06E03 is decent.

I like how they've set up the show so they can pretty much approach anything.

Andor s01e01-s01e03

As a bit of character background to Rogue One, it could finish after the first 3 eps.
  • Minimal visual Imperial indicators - the odd emblem and a ship in hyperspace. Maybe the uniforms of the ship occupants are the same as the clone doctors in Mando?
  • 'B' is more Wall-e than Astromech
  • Starts in a Red Light district, with a sneaky bit of barmaid sideboob, probably mid way on a scale of 1 to Oola.
  • No noticeable American accents - more working class Britain trying to get along.
  • Cheeky hidden yellow Y-Wing.
  • Mashed Westworld (but obvious) timelines culminating in a matching scene at the end of Ep3.
  • No lightsabers.
  • No sand.

There could be a line ruled there, but there won't. Somehow they will manage to kooze it up.

Wasn't going to watch Andor as Kenobi / Boba Fett was so disappointing... but it has been a great first three episodes so far. Side by side to Mandalorian S1 imo (so far).

It's great so far. I really like how they're building up the case for rebellion.

The casting is fantastic.

Feeling a bit crook so I'm re-watching The Mandalorian in the downtime.

I like how Greef Karga is all bro with Mando after the big score, but as soon as he breaks the code, he's gots to go.

I like to think Mando intentionally aimed at the beskar in Greef's pocket.

Never watched it before but I just finished 15 seasons of CSI. Compared to the production values and drama of the new last of us trailer itís pretty low stakes but still a slick well crafted operation. Donít jump the shark either.

The original? Keep away from the remakes. Maybe NY was ok (i didn't watch it), but the other was (Miami???) was real shite.

Agreed. (They even cast Richie from The Bear!) Ep4 was fucking great. Big fan of Andor so far.

Ok - Fonzie doesn't even have his togs on yet.

I loved the full subtle nod to the whole ANH being a Kurosawa remake, with the gallery having many samurai like artefacts, and then Mon Mothma's husband basically dressed as a daimyo. Clearly that wasn't Jango's armour on display, but the Vader like artefacts were awesome.

And the British accents are still soooo good. Speeders land like speeders should, and speeder-bikes hover without a bluescreen mask.

Fired corporate lacky goes home - "I bet his mum answers the door!" - Yep.

How long can the goodness last?

That guy is knocking out the park in both shows.

The show is doing a great job showcasing why Andor holds his rank of captain in the Alliance Military.

Epic episode last night. The tension, the pacing, the characters & acting, the scenery, the CG, can't fault it.

That fast draw!

I love how it's The Empire's fascism that's leading to its downfall.

Like when the heist team show up in their uniforms, that brief cut where some of the other soldiers look at them with suspicion. But everything moves forward, no one is going to risk sticking their neck out.

The show is going to be over too soon.

Well that She Hulk final was definitely something different.

Really...? I'd say the reverse.
Although slow, I'm really enjoying HotD, the time jumps are a bit annoying but still I find it much more enjoyable than RoP. Also, it has Dragons so it's always going to have the upper hand from my POV :P
That last episode 9 of HoD felt much more like a top GoT episode and was bloody awesome IMO.

Yeah, I'm loving House of the Dragon. Just wish I could have enjoyed Rings as well. I'll probably skip Rings s2 unless people say it's much improved. Just didn't really enjoy it other than ep6 except that stupid SOUTHLANDS / MORDOR text..

Andor still #1 for me though. Best live action SW content since the OG trilogy imo.

I like how they went out of their way to piss off all the sexist shitholes while still holding a funny, engaging and quirky plot.

I like seeing how the Empire has an effective path for side-lining those who value genuine authority, legitimacy. Syril's first day at the "Standards Bureau" is editing his record in the name of cronyism.

I figure Syril is joining the Rebellion and at some point encounters Andor when they're on the same side.

Yeah, but surely in a short season show, there wouldn't be the opportunity to make major changes for the finale.

So I assume they already figured what a lot of the feedback was going to be and worked that in?

Some yes, some no. Given the multiple diatribes and general bollocks that started from basically the 5 minutes it takes to write a bad hot-take after the show was announced, let alone getting close to filming, I doubt that it was that big of an ask, and fits well with the constand 4th wall breaking.

While I suspect they would have been more surprised if the sexist shitholes didn't come out in force, this was tweaked too nicely to some of the recurring themes from their bollocks.
