Caught Star Trek: Discovery last night. I'm not 100% behind some of their choices, but it's promising so far.
Avoid the fanbase for the most part. It's toxic as hell and kind of ruins the show.IncantatioN said:I finally watched Rick and Morty, I think I have 2 or 3 episodes left to watch in Season 3. The show RULES. Poor, poor Jerry ... I feel for the guy sometimes. Rick is star of the show, sliding in dark truths here n there.
Also avoid the comments like this in every Rick & Morty discussion, and I've seen it almost verbatim several times in just regular articles on the show, that also kind of attempts to ruin the show. What the hell are Rick & Morty fans doing out there to get this reputation anyway, short of actually killing people? If toxic fanbases ruined things we'd have to quit all TV, sports, movies, and AHEM, video games. Plus politics and humanity in general.Johnstantine said:Avoid the fanbase for the most part.

Yeah, I saw that, but that's just stupid and obnoxious. Worse would be the bitching about/attacking the shows women writers, but I'm still failing to see the distinction between them and... The Internet? Anyway, I'm not defending them or saying they aren't terrible (I can definitely see how a bunch of Rick wannabes could be a problem), but it's just that I only ever hear the secondhand backlash which makes my natural skepticism kick in so it seems more like a Rick & Morty meme than them actually being exceptionally worse than all the other obnoxious or toxic fanbases online.Sareth said:Throwing tantrums at McDonald's over a dipping sauce.
Yup! But not old, just astute. As a matter of fact, Rick & Morty's Internet precursor, a takeoff on Back to the Future's Doc and Marty, is a direct result of the legal trouble House of Cosby's faced and basically a big fuck you to Universal in the form of a cartoon about Doc Brown finding different pretexts to get Marty McFly to lick his balls.Walter said:I acknowledge this will make me sound like an old man, but is Rick & Morty from the same mind as House of Cosbys?
Hmm, I thought they were going to release the "other half" of Season 1 first, since that was such a short stint (4 eps), but it seems that the next batch is just "Season 2." Oh well, I'll definitely watch it when it's out.Sareth said:Season 2 of Netflix’s Castlevania has been announced for October 26
Supposedly only 4 episodes were done initially to test things out. Season 2 will have 8 episodes, and Richard Armitage revealed that they are recording for a 3rd season. I'm guessing the whole series will come out to be 20 episodes.Walter said:Hmm, I thought they were going to release the "other half" of Season 1 first, since that was such a short stint (4 eps), but it seems that the next batch is just "Season 2."

Season 2 completely sunk my interest in that show, I'm sorry to say. It's a shame, because it started out promising. The first half of the first season is some of the best scifi I've seen on TV recently. Then the "SciFy" nature of things caught up to it in Season 2. Whew, what a stinker!N7Paladin said:Currently watching the Expanse and I'm mostly enjoying it. The 1st season drew me in and the first 3/4 of season 2 kept me in, but the last parts of season 2 just had awful pacing. Season 3 has started out well enough so far and hopefully it stays like that.
I absolutely loved Season 1. The fact that Forde semiii have a hand in Maeve's plan made her arc work a little better, though what a coincidence she just happened to come across the most spineless lab techs ever.IncantatioN said:Westworld concluded season 2 this past Sunday and it was a hot mess of an episode - pacing, story. Season 1 was generally better for pacing, intrigue and keeping me interested/ invested in the show. Just when you think it should give you some closure, it opens that door for you for only a few characters but also creates more questions for the rest so they can add more and more content to it. I'd rather have a show that's 1 or 2 seasons (or anything definitive) and that's it. In terms of story arcs, I didn't care much for Maeve's or Dolores' post awakening arcs.
