  • I enjoyed the show well enough but the actress playing (o...riginal) Rebecca doesn't seem to have the comedy chops for the more physical jokes.  Rest of the cast is great.  Already the writers do seem to be struggling to keep the length down on Ted'…

  • Grace episode 2 was awful. Law & Order UK - Starts with good cast then they leave over the seasons. Still, watchable if you want a story resolved each episode.
  • Other posters are jogging my memory.  Differing opinions are why you should try each show yourself, see what you like. Bodyguard - started strong but became sillier as it wentCollateral - twisty anti-terrorism story hurt by lead actress having four …
  • Dee said: Also, I thought Broadchurch S1 was phenomenal, S2 was craptacular, and S3 was an okay, run of the mill crime drama. I guess we can disagree.  S3 came across as some spinster's polemic against non-Church sanctioned sexuality. (E…
  • Is there an existing discussion of British crime series?  I searched but didn't find one.  Might be nice for folks who like this to have suggestions in a separate discussion of what to watch/binge between episodes of this show.

  • @bizmarkiefader Thanks for mentioning the Watch podcast coverage of the show; it's a good compliment to the Still Watching coverage.
  • I thought the title was fun, like the HK police movie Infernal Affairs. The Still Watching podcast mentioned this show is borrowing some common British crime show tropes (Looks to me like "policewoman deals with personal/family issues while solving…

  • What podcasts about the MCU are folks listening to?  I'm finding Still Watching and Spectrum Lounge too political/cynical and Biff is a bit uncritical.  Ending felt a bit rushed, trying to wrap up eleventy-seven different story arcs enough provide…
  • I think if he was going to show up it would have been in episode 5. At this point Sam has heard from Bradley and Bucky on being CA and IMO with the training montage Sam has proven to himself he's worthy of the shield. For Steve to show up now wou…

  • jleav382 said: Y'all ready for the season 3 finale fan edit? currently working on it.   I heard them praise your work on the podcast.  Is there any easy way to get a copy of your previous work or do I need to go to Madripoor’s Low Town to …
  • Sorry for what turned into a thread hijack, jleav382.  I'll concede that eventually fire could kill a walker. 
  • Hatorian said: Well in the first seasons we clearly see fried walkers Can you point me to an episode or clip of a walker dying from fire in a scene?  Hatorian said: And let’s be honest with the show. They do as they please to mak…
  • Hatorian said: Fire does kill them if it can cook the brain The walker which attacked Eugene in the future bullet factory had a molten metal "helmet", so I'm going to have to disagree.  If one goes back through TWD show also there's…
  • Fire/heat doesn't kill walkers, so unless the house collapsed from the fire... I can see why the episode would appeal to a lot of people but I only found the scene where Negan left against his wife's wishes compelling.  Otherwise just seemed like fa…
  • Cory said: Am I the only one who couldn't stand Barry Allen?  Way too goofy for me, like a poor man's MCU Peter Parker. He's a good example of the humor in this movie being off from what I would prefer.  It was weird to watch a superhero…
  • MrX said: Dawn of the Dead is pretty well regarded and was written by James Gunn - was also Snyder's first film so probably was the least amount of control he had over a movie. Yeah, he did OK with that one
  • Other than Zack Snyder, are there people who prefer his movies to Marvel's?  It was just so ponderous.  Felt like watching a Marvel movie with the good humor removed and the movie slowed down to half speed.
  • With the other characters, they get their time to shine or be evil, but IMO Hulk's danger is touched on repeatedly, from the meeting in the shack with Black Widow, the special containment module, Loki's plan, Hulk and the Black Widow being under the…
  • Travis said: Mostly the first Avengers movie was so much better for it. Do others agree this was really a Hulk movie?  I never see/hear that sentiment expressed but watching it makes it pretty clear IMO.  Not only a Hulk movie, of course, bu…
  • Watched the two seasons of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.  Hadn't seen them before.  Thought it was pretty well done except for the choice of having John Connor be an annoying-to-the-audience teenager.  Still worth watching.  While I was…
  • nstinson said: Are there any movies in such a setting that don't devolve into white savior fantasies? I've only seen a few films set in Africa.  I don't think The Dead suffers from it, but it's been a few years.  Aside: The Dead is one of t…
  • Watched the first two episodes of Miss Scarlet and the Duke but so far it's too...cold?  Bloodless?  for me.  At least so far it's not committing the cardinal sin of such shows, making the men unbelievably stupid to make the women seem smarter (see …
  • Catching up on Nicola Walker: Last Tango in Halifax - Christmas special and series 5: Enjoyable British comedy, good mix of heartwarming and more biting humor.  Special mention: Tony Gardner's amazing performance The Split series 2 - Disappointing.…
  • Tears of the Sun - Started well then went into fantasy land, a regressive white colonial-ish, white savior fantasy land at that.
  • bizmarkiefader said: We just hit season 6 of Supernatural and people were not kidding about the dropoff after the first five seasons. [...] Hopefully there's some stuff in later seasons that makes it worth it. I hear there is but I stoppe…
  • Teresa from Concord said: Are they really doing a sitcom every episode through the entire season? I realize I’m the only one on this thread already over that gimmick.  I don't think so; TV shows these days tend to be quick to change thing…
