Apparently they had to shelve an entire episode (about Gamora / Tony) and every episode had to be shortened to some degree due to the pandemic.  Overall, though I agree with kamikazeeg - it was a fun time, with room for improvement.  I would actually like to see more overall standalone stories fro mthe MCU in general, though.

That makes sense, being that the ending involves the Gamora from that shelved episode and was the only one that didn't have a story for us to follow.

With all the hype around Squid Game right now, I figured I'd better give it a watch before I'm spoiled about what happens and I dug it.  It's a really solid drama/thriller with an interesting enough premise.  I think it's overhyped abit as things can be nowadays I feel when something starts to get popular (I think people are taken back by its premise, which isn't super common in western shows outside of like maybe Hunger Games, but I've seen it plenty in anime and what not), but it's genuinely a solid show with some intense moments, good pacing, and good acting.

Visually I dig the look of the show, it comes across very retro with some of its style, like it could've been made in the 70's.  Having it all be Korean kid games too makes for this weirdly lighthearted element to so much death and drama happening.  My only complaints is that the story feels a little wonky in spots and the ending could have been better, but it's still like an 8 out of 10 show, I do recommend it as it's nice to have another piece of interesting Korean media, which reminds me to go and watch Parasite.

LuLa Rich is a documentary about LuLa Roe on Amazon.  Totally shady company, but I feel like they did this doco too early, since the company and founders are still around, so there are a lot of unanswered questions and stuff that doesn't get addressed.

The Movies that Made Us - Not nearly as interesting as The Toys that Made Us, but decent to have on the background.  Still not the biggest fan of how this team edits stuff.

Sliced Bread Is The Best Thing Since Cobra Kai


Cobra Kai is better than a sweet cream cheese on a toasted bagel, it's that sequel we were denied. It's all I can share and more.  For one the acting is top tier.  Ralph Maccio still has it.  Johnny Lawrence goes from being one of the most hated men in 80s lore to now being someone we belove and his arch is anime levels of profound :D

If your Mrs. offers you to fly to rome and even chocolate covered strawberries off glascapes overlooking gondolas.  Or if your trampoline park is having a pizza night.  Cobra Kai is better.  If you imagine the best dream you ever had. Cobra Kai is better.

It also has a tubular and bodacious soundtrack.  And I am actively on my journey to be Johnny Lawrence by buying a 91 Trans Am and drinking coors banquet beer while wearing leather and kicking unadulterated wholesale ass.  The best.

Finishing up season 6 of Lucifer. Watched all of the Marvel series. Waiting for Hawkeye which should start in 2 or 3 weeks.

Exactly my thoughts.  It's huge with people that have never seen anything like it before.  That's not to say it's bad, it's pretty good, with at least one truly great episode in the middle, but there are two plot lines that basically go no where, and it is kinda predictable in spots.

Lovecraft Country doesn't quite add up to the sum of its parts.  It's well acted, written, and executed, but it never quite gels to reach the heights its aiming for.  I'm really liking it, but totally understand why it didn't find an audience.

Lodge 49 is an incredibly weird, joyous, melancholic little show.  It's such a wonderfully realized world, and every character feels so lived in and real.

Watched Part 2 of Masters of the Universe: Revelation and it's a great watch.  I know old fans have issues with the show because it isn't about He-Man anymore, but I guess I don't really care about that, the old show was dumb and goofy and they already did a bunch of stuff with He-Man and Skeletor, so the show revolving more around Teela and Evil-Lyn makes it more interesting as there is more character to work with compared Prince Boy Scout and Evil Skeleton Man.  Heck, there's even a nod to this idea at the very end of the show basically saying there is more here than just their fight.

That being said, the show is genuinely good, it's got some solid enough story telling and the action is pretty great.  I don't think its highs hit as high as say Castlevania did, but it's very consistent and well done.  I'm sure there are some plot issues here and there and probably a little too much ease to how new powers are utilized if I wanted to try and be more critical, but I don't know, the show just keeps clipping on at a good pace where it never felt like it hurt or anything or became too noticeable to be bothersome.  It's still a power fantasy, but unlike say a Dragon Ball Z, there's better setup to the power being given.  For the most part that is.

Definitely looking forward to more of the show.

Chucky! I think it started off kinda slow with the first two episodes but the show got much better. Season finale is this Tuesday.

Binged through the live action Cowboy Bebop and had a great time with it.  It's certainly not an ideal adaptation, it's not on the same level as the anime at all, but what I enjoyed is the general expansion of things.  More casual time spent with all the characters was entertaining., I enjoyed that, even if the dialogue could get abit goofy at times, but it wasn't as terrible as I had been hearing, or at least enough to bother me.  Really, I went into this not with the idea in mind of it being better or even as good, just to see if they could make a good show, because I think on its own, it's very entertaining.  The action is good, a lot of the scifi stuff is great (Some wonky CG and effects strewn about, but it's mostly good for a tv show), and I think it hits most of the story beats it needs to for the things it is adapting.

The original is better, no doubt about that, but I still had fun with this version even if it is imperfect.
