The procedural stuff is made more obnoxious because it's always couched in a constant state of urgency. Every episode it's the most ruthless villain ever, until next week. But yeah, Spader-Man is the reason to watch this.m said:For me it's James Spader. I liked his work on Boston Legal and I still like his work on this show (oddly enough I didn't quite like him on Avengers 2).
Well, can't leave a true fan hangin' then; the first episode is streaming free courtesy of starz:Oburi said:Damn I really want to watch this. I don't have those channels though. I must find a way. Evil Dead is one of my favorite movies of all time. Hence ...
Yeah, so far so really good. My favorite scene this episode was at the dinner table, spoiler -Griffith said:Ash vs. Evil Dead continued to delight in episode 2. This might be a case of perfect timing since I can't imagine this show being able to exist before the recent boutique television boom, and The Walking Dead in particular, because it blends horror, gore and irreverent comedy in a way you'll rarely, if ever, see on television (or successfully in movies). The closest comparisons I can think of are Buffy (comedy/horror) or True Blood (comedy/gore) but even those had dramatic elements and sex appeal this show doesn't even have the time of day for. This is more like if the cast of Seinfeld had chainsaws for hands and regularly engaged in bloodbaths between observations. It's great fun because it's not trying to be anything more.
I dig it. As Grif already said you can watch it on Starz but for the new episode you might have to go with a site like primewire or couchtuner if you dont have access to Starz.Oburi said:Damn I really want to watch this.

Yeah, I learned an interesting factoid yesterday (though it's been out there for months); they didn't get the rights to Army of Darkness for this, so there won't be any references to it that aren't also in the other Dead movies. I don't think it's going to be an issue though, it's not really noticeable and just seemed like an artistic choice when Ash didn't cover it in his history (they still could have used the ending of Evil Dead II for example, but it's not really relevant to the modern day story like the events at the cabin). Judging from Bruce Campbell's explanation it indeed seemed like a choice not to procure it because that would have meant one more hand (Universal) in the cookie jar creatively/financially when it wasn't necessary.IncantatioN said:Yeah, so far so really good. My favorite scene this episode was at the dinner table, spoiler -, plus the Deep Purple love is cool to hear. I like the fact that it's something that's accessible to new fans and hits highs with fans of the movies.punching Suzy in the face got a loud chuckle outta me
Actually, she did appear briefly in episode 1, she was the woman in the diner, but she's hardly recognizable (and as Ash put it, lookin' gooood).IncantatioN said:Surprised to see Mimi Rogers and quickly checked their IMDB page, spoiler -is credited for 10 episodes but she hasn't shown up yet.Lucy Lawless
Coincidentally,IncantatioN said:5 episodes into the second season of Fargo and it's consistently good, building up.
Looks and sounds great, but I haven't even seriously watched Louie yet... there's too many shows!IncantatioN said:Binge watched Aziz Ansari's new show on Netflix called Master Of None. It's similar to Louie in terms of having topics that are personal, real and relatable mixing it with bits of humor, sometimes dark and sad. There wasn't a point in the season where an episode felt filler or the quality dipped. Aziz is an aspiring Indian American actor in New York and you go through his dating life, his relationship with his parents who are the kind of burdened big sacrifices to come to America so their kids could have a better life, his on and off auditions, Indians on television (white actors picked to play Indian roles where there's an option for choosing an Indian actor or the issue of typecasting an Indian to do a heavy Indian accent) and a lot lot more, including a serious relationship with it's highs and lows, and a question/ situation by the end that got me thinking about life generally speaking and choices. It hits harder than regular comedy because like Louie, it's very grounded. If you got Netflix, give it a shot guys.
I just learned this show existed the other day and what I read about it definitely caught my attention. It's now on my list, but I'm not sure when I'll get to it because:IncantatioN said:Binge watched Aziz Ansari's new show on Netflix called Master Of None .... If you got Netflix, give it a shot guys.
Indeed. The list of shows I follow/plan on watching consists of 42 shows, and I find it amazing that people in my social circle don't really watch many of them, though they watch other shows I don't. It feels like nowadays there really is something for everyone and in my opinion the quality of many of the shows is quite high (though of course there's also many crappy and mediocre shows).Griffith said:there's too many shows!
I've just took on this epic re-watch as well. Mostly because I'd never watched the whole series from start to finish before, and I'd actually only caught maybe two and half seasons overall during it's initial run. I was a little too young to fully grasp everything at that time so now seems like as good a time as any to really dig in and embrace The Sopranos in it's full glory. Even more exciting is I've never seen the final season. Of course I've heard a lot about it from... well everywhere, but I'm still very much in the dark about the ending, so I'm excited to experience that.Griffith said:The wife and I finished our Sopranos run (second time for me, though I didn't see them all before). Anyway, it was better than I remembered, particularly the last few seasons, which weren't as great as the first few, but also not as as obnoxious as I originally thought either (I always thought the show was dragged down by the weight of it's own expectations, but I realize that problem was largely on our/my end and I likely suffered the frustration of release schedule syndrome I've so denounced with Berserk)
Been meaning to watch The Expanse but wasn't sure of how good it was. I'll surely hit it up now.Aazealh said:Bojack Horseman is great. As is The Expanse.
Curious to know what you got lined up sir!m said:Indeed. The list of shows I follow/plan on watching consists of 42 shows...
Puella and I have watched the entirety of season one. As an appreciator of the original movie (never read the novel), I'm pretty pleased with how this reboot turned out.Joe Chip said:Has anybody been following Westworld ? Pretty amazing tv show, i was hooked from episode one. I would love to discuss some of the theories with you guys.

I didn't think there was a novel, but just the screenplay written and directed for film by Crichton?Aazealh said:Puella and I have watched the entirety of season one. As an appreciator of the original movie (never read the novel), I'm pretty pleased with how this reboot turned out.
