  • hitmy said: nah, this "make you strong" dirty crazy lady is super-meh in my book. more of the same morgalizing stuff. The romance between cowboy guy and blond haired lady is actually good though. Martha's not particularly interesting (oth…
  • I found it a vast improvement over Iron Fist s1; it was actually watchable and had a good plot.  I found it was about 1/2 filler, though, so keep the FFWD button handy.  If you aren't planning to watch this season, at least watch the last ~10 minute…
  • Credit where it's due, the last couple of episodes have been free of much of what went wrong in s4.  Some of the situations have been interesting, characters different, etc.  It's possible the show runners might be figuring out how to run a zombie s…
  • BBC Global News Podcast; can't recommend it enough.
  • Glad companies seem to be developing processes to investigate accusations.
  • Meta: Pixie Davies (Sophie) and Billy Jenkins (Sam) are amazing.  I'm not sure where the show is going; feels a bit like they've taken a wrong turn. How does adding "synth blood" equal more than an enhanced human, not a synth or any real kind of…

  • roxbombers said: I hadn't put any thought into a projector. I'll have to read that article and take a look, thanks. I have an earlier Benq short throw projector than the one mentioned in the article and really like it.  DVDs and standard B…
  • The Wirecutter is a big fan of TCL: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-tv/ For your price point, have you considered a projector?  If you aren't watching a lot of 4K content, it's nice to have a screen measured in feet, not inches: https://thewi…
  • iZombie.  Two perfect seasons, then...wait, what?!
  • There was a good podcast episode on it from The Incomparable: "Ice Cream Headache from the Future" ;-) https://www.theincomparable.com/theincomparable/390/

  • That is interesting.  I'm not sure anyone watching just those today as their first exposure to the show would come back to see the rest (which has some very fine material), as the last two are full of trippy, 60's strangeness.  For ex: I'd recomm…
  • On the wrap-up podcast they bring up Dolores being able to take lots of shots and keep going.  I think the simple explanation is that ability comes with the Wyatt gang narrative.  A number of Wyatt gang members are shot and keep going, makes sense t…
  • I love the show, but suspect anyone coming to it today would find it hard to watch as it's very much a product of its time in terms of acting, dialogue, etc.  If people do try to watch, be aware there are recommended viewing orders as the order they…
  • tpelzy said: I just had a totally enraging realization. The chestnuts are bullet proof. We see one survive being hit with a bullet from a magic Westworld gun.  If the gun/bullet can magically distinguish between human and host normally, …
  • I like your idea, but all we have is an AI which thinks it's cracked the problem of reviving humans.  If it had, wouldn't it have informed Delos they could start selling immortality, and wouldn't there have been trials?  Instead we have the MiB in t…
  • All the Chickens said: In the year 2052, we are in short supply of military drones and helicopters. In the year 2052 China still doesn't want you bringing military air power on their territory.  If you want run around with small arms and d…
  • Schlupp said: I found it strange that we don't see the top tier train their own virtual backups to make sure it's the real thing. A ) it was a secret project with one test subject who didn't workB ) people would try to train their virtual…
  • All the Chickens said: I take issue with their determination that our minds are incredibly simple, and somehow against all logic the human mind is far more simple than the hosts minds that were created by humans. In general I agree with you…
  • @matatoes WRT the politics of the show, I think it's much more simple/simplistic than that.  From an interview, Nolan is very upset about the current political situation/president.  So hosts/woke hosts = elegant and pure good people, humans = brutis…
  • redlancer said: Only problem is they essentially gave Maeve unlocked god-mode, which is super-cool, but then didn't really go anywhere with it. While that's what everyone (including me) assumed, turns out Ford just restored her powers; he …
  • roscoe said: I wanted the robots to establish a virtual world for themselves in this story. Oh boy, never mind once I saw Ake's mate in the simulation lol. Too much head scratching to bother, really. The Sublime is a magical world where t…
  • Please let Dolores have put Teddy's Marble into Hale, at least for an episode or two. Elsie died like she lived: wearing a black unitard.
  • Perhaps at some point William becomes a human head/neck on a host body? 
  • NervousRhino said: I just finished the 1st season. What all do I need to watch of these Marvel shows to catch up to The Defenders? Is it the first seasons of Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Daredevil?  If you want every last nuance…
  • lionelhutz said: The podcast speaks of Dr. Ford as a good guy. Does anyone else not see him that way at all? Well, duh, he's a white male. Season 4 is legions of Dr. Ford-controlled hosts taking over the world while Elsie, Bernard, and Mae…
  • I want Bernthal to come back as Shane's brother Dwayne, an ex-Special Forces soldier.
  • Now the MiB has a reason to save the Forge, as it's the only place his daughter is "alive." I wonder what season 3 will bring, if it isn't Maeve in the outside world.  There aren't a lot of existing characters left.
  • Season 3 is about Elsie dealing with her abandonment issues.
  • What's frustrating about this account (compared to others I have read) is that she stayed with him for three years.  She was not kept locked up or drugged up, away from a phone, without money.  She could have called someone or just left, which she e…
