Old thread - https://forums.obsid...steland/page-27


 

I didnt watch it last night because my wife was working and I wanted to save it to watch together. The urge to spoil myself rotten beforehand is strong.



I couldn't watch it yet either. Probably tomorrow. It's killing me.



Watching it right now. :lol:

Finished The Dragon Prince. Fantastic animated show, as long as it doesn't get cancelled it might become one of the best.

Also saw Russian Doll. Meh! Every single character was unlikeable.



I watched an episode of Russian Doll and I think I got lung cancer from all the smoking.

Started The Umbrella Academy. It's entertaining, but I think I might be tired of superhero TV (strangely, movies I'm fine with).

I wish someone would bring back WMAC Masters.  That show was amazingly cheesy and wonderful, sadly it only lasted 2 seasons. For those not familiar with WMAC Masters, it was a TV show that ran in the mid 90s. Imagine if Mortal Kombat was a live action TV show, now turn the cheese factor up to 11. They had health bars on the screen for dudes taking on gangs of ninjas. It was everything I ever wanted in a TV show.

Watched more Umbrella Academy, I think I'm up to the 8th episode.

 

At that point my chr. affection switched over to the hitmen, particularly Hazel (the guy). Doing my usual lookup, he had an important role in the series Mindhunter - which overall was a better series than TUA. I think he may have at least a nice "chr. role" career ahead of him if he wants it.

 

Anyway, even tho I enjoy the hitmen on their own, in terms of the series I'm not quite sure why so much attention is placed on them. It feels like filler. The visuals are still fun and I like the music but the further the series goes the less appealing it is overall. Even if you like some chrs. it all feels kind of disconnected so far.

 A Korean Odyssey/Hwayugi via Netflix

Hm why haven't I noticed this one before. It reminds me, in flavor, a bit of both Goblin and Masters Sun. So supernatural, deities, demons, ghosts, comedy, (probably eventually) tragedy, romance. On episode 5, very bingeable so far. And the actor playing Ma Wong is killing it. I'm in stitches almost every time he has a longer scene.

(He's not human and Sam Jang = a special/rare human that has an irresistible blood-scent)

Watched After Life on Netflix.

 

Language warning, lots of cursing:

 

 

Well worth a watch. Bloody fantastic, actually. Final episode gets a bit too sappy perhaps.

Can anyone explain to me why there was no new episode of The Orville this week? Didn't they skip one already recently?

It was preempted; Fox aired the iHeartRadio Music Awards last night.  Last episode of the season for The Orville is 3/21.

I watched several of the very short episodes of Love, Death & Robots on Netflix. It's very much like you're watching high quality student short animated films. Most of them are not suitable for children, or at the least, be aware many are uber violent or nudity/sex moments. There are some lighter/cuter ones however.

 

Quality and subject varies a lot so some you'll probably like, some you won't, etc. I don't care about death-match type scenarios so a couple of those to me were bleh. One of my faves so far was the one called Suits. Another one was Good Hunting...which was kind of disturbing, bizarre, and sad all at the same time. Anyway, since they're all like 6-15 minutes, worth skipping around for ones you like.

I wonder how many people that first episode of Love, Death + Robots stopped from continuing. It's like an edgelord explosion of edginess for the sake of being edgy.

 

Look at us, we're animated entertainment for adults. We have violence, swearing, boobies, lesbians and (off-screen) gang rape. All handled with tasteful, uhm, immaturity.

 

But yeah, some episodes are fun and they're so short the bad ones don't really matter. It's just sad that the frist episode is that... eh. Well, edgy.

It's all a matter of perspective I guess. That dude in the After Life trailer looks edgier than a fully upgraded Uchigatana. 'I do what I want and if I can't do it I'll just kill myself'. I be like: 'dude, couldn't you kill yourself now? Because rest assured there are things in this world you can't do'.


Love, Death + Robots looks awesome though, pure fantasy, helps me relax a bit. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll check it out.
