The latest crossover with Supergirl was epic.

I'm way behind on the DC shows. I just finished the invasion crossover. I had heard fairly negative things, but I thought it was okay. Not great by any stretch. Merely okay. Perhaps the negative comments kept me grounded so I didn't expect much out of it. Still, it was pretty cool to see the heroes working together. And according to my DVR, I still have a ways to go before I'm caught up.

You Legion fans may be happy to know I'm showing support for the show. I watched the first episode on FXNOW. I intend to watch the other episodes as well. It is my hope that my belated decision to watch in streaming may be a benefit to the show. I'm not currently a Nielsen household, but they surely know that I'm watching their show through their app. I hope that means something to them.

Hell, the streaming app is probably better for them since I couldn't fast-forward through those commercials. Speaking of which, I saw an amusing negative review for the FXNOW app. The person whined about too many ads; the point of these television apps is NO COMMERCIALS! Yeah, I don't think that guy understands how television works.

I enjoyed the episode of Legion I saw. It was trippy and hard to follow, which is probably why it'll eventually get canned. I don't have a high regard for the intellectual capacity of the average television viewer. But maybe I'll be proven wrong. There were some really cool shots in that episode, despite the fact that the slo-mo flying bodies shtick was already old after the Matrix movies. It was a pretty intense episode, and I look forward to seeing more.

So Walking Dead.  An interesting thing I noticed compared to the comics. (Spoilers include both comic and show.)  It's quite clear that Sasha is getting the Holly treatment.  She'll be dead by the end of the finale, 100% guaranteed.  The (attempted) rape scene plays out almost exactly as in the book in terms of dialogue, but I interpreted the comic scene to be very different.  In the comics, I got the impression that Negan was actually surprised at what he saw and was pissed off, and then really lost control and killed the guy out of anger.  In the show, it looked like he completely expected to walk in on this. (This is based on the way Jeffery Dean Morgan delivered the lines, his body language, etc.) I believe that show Negan allowed David around Sasha (maybe even putting him on guard duty) because he knew exactly what kind of person David was and what David would do.  So he basically set this up to (1) kill David, which he knew he'd end up doing eventually, and (2) the more important part, put on a show for Sasha that the Saviors aren't such bad guys.  It adds an extra level of manipulation to Negan.

Also the Eugene development (quite different from the comics) is pretty interesting.

I started reading the manga after I caught up on the anime.  I'm still not entirely sure of the manga update schedule.  It seems sporadic.



Speaking of funny... Rick and Morty season premiere.  Amazing as always.

Okay, all caught up on Legion, even though the DVR somehow didn't record episode 8. Fortunately, I was able to see it on demand.

Very cerebral. Kind of like a long trip of Being John Malkovich. I'll be surprised if it can maintain the ratings to justify the budget, but we shall see.

Still digging Powerless, though I'm a couple episodes behind.

Started 13 Reasons Why.

It's intriguing in a tweeny, glorify suicide, consistently inconsistent main character sort of way.

Finished Iron Fist and it appears I'm in the minority: I really like it.  A few reasons:

--ninjas are always awesome
--strong female characters, especially Colleen, Joy, and Gao, which most all of the superhero genre lacks
--mystical stuff is a good counter to science experiments/mutants/aliens
--Stan Lee sneak cameo, Hogarth, Luke Cage nod were all fun

I'd rank it after DD and above all other shows.  Yeah, Danny wasn't the strongest actor, but the rest were good, the tai chi + Kung fu stuff rocked, and I liked the hectic fight scenes.

Plus, Rza directed an episode!

Final season of The Leftovers starts tomorrow.  If you're not watching this show you're a bad person and you should feel bad.

I still think International Assassin (S2:E8) is one of the best things I've ever seen on film or television.  I'm excited to see if this season can match it

I've been binge-watching Better Call Saul. I finished episode 2 of the second season. These seasons only have 10 episodes, so I should catch up fairly quickly.

I honestly didn't have high expectations for a spin-off series. While I liked Saul in Breaking Bad, I wasn't convinced that a whole series about his "rise" to power would be that interesting.

But they've got some quality writing with some great performances. I'm happy with it. Apparently, my assessment that the season 1 finale was weak sauce is a point of contention among my friends, but I still feel that it was pretty weak, especially compared to the rest of the season. Fight me.

Starz is really ramping up the promotions for American Gods. I had considered holding off on subscribing to Starz so I could binge-watch the entire season with only one month's subscription, but I think I may end up subscribing anyway to keep up with it. The casting is really solid, but the fact that it's by Bryan Fuller is the clincher for me. It seems only logical that this move should be rewarded by throwing money at it.

Better Call Saul is great.  The acting is incredible, and the storytelling is engaging and immersive for things that you wouldn't think would be interesting to watch on television on their surface.

Total agreement. The first season was merely good, the second season was one of the best seasons of TV ever. I love this show.

The first season was amazing; the second season was amazinger.

The premiere was wow.  This show has a way of eliciting feelings/reactions from me that no other show has done.

Are you guys seconding Leftovers or Assasin (because it's impossible to tell from the quote)?
