    Swamp Thing

    Well... Adrienne Barbeau's cameos were nothing to write home about. They gave her the role of a bitchy CDC director and she was always walking and being filmed from behind most of her few scenes. I found it odd that they would give a 74 year old a scene where she has to deliver her lines while walking up two flights of stairs. She's in great shape at least.

    On the other hand, this past week I also watched the Chernobyl 5 ep mini-series. That was perhaps the greatest mini-series I've seen in a long time. Gets my highest recommendation.

    Star Trek: Discovery

    About four episodes into season one so far today. Not terrible but neither anything great either.

    The Klingon sub-titles are a big of a distraction and a few of Discovery's crew members are a touch bit too snarky for Star Fleet protocol.

    I hear it gets better as it goes on.

    I've watched all three seasons, and every single time, by the end, i'm like:
    Why did i watch this?

    I had no interest in season 3, but have recent bad sleeping issues, so i started watching.

    I still do not get why the Russians were even there, trying to reopen the hole?

    What was the point of the replicas if they just ended up morphing into the Flayer?

    Why was the flayer there, were the Russians aware?

    Why does every monster just focus on that one small town, as opposed to world
    domination?

    How does an overweight sheriff with a "Dad" bod, manage to kick the ass of a ridiculously,
    lean & cut, Russian martial arts assassin?

    I watch this because i only like the "freaks & geeks/80's" aspect of it.
    But the Sci Fi stuff, none of it makes sense.

    Initially, i liked it, then it was like: Might as well just finish it.

    The Boys

    Starts today on Amazon Prime.

    8 episode first season. From what I've seen so far, it's following the comic story line with a few minor changes to bring it to the screen.

    In the book the bad guy gets thrown so hard into the girl that it tears her arms off in her boyfriends hands.



    In the series, A-Train just recklessly runs into her with the same results.



    Looks as bloody, violent and full of sex and profanity as the books.

    The Newsroom

    Been wanting to see this for a long time and found it on Amazon Prime last night.

    Kind of hoping the first episode was just the pilot and things smooth out a bit in the following episodes.

    Jeff Daniels character is so fucking unlikable and such an asshole. So is the guy who plays his Executive Producer, who is leaving for another news show... just a total arrogant dickhead.

    Also sucks that everyone seems to just be reading Sorkin's dialog right off a teleprompter instead of trying to act it. Nobody ever... anywhere talks to each other in the workplace like these people do.

    I saw the first ten minutes of ep. 2 and Daniels seemed more mellow... so I'll continue when time allows and hope it gets better and is compelling enough.

    Was going to start The West Wing, but this series is only 25 episodes and done. TWW is much more of a commitment.

    God bless you 47. I tried the Newsroom and just couldn't watch it. Well got through maybe 6 or 7 episodes. Just seemed to me that here was Daniels, a Republican who simply is becoming "woke." Well in 2010 or whenever it was made. Plus if I remember there was some young girl who was really annoying. Anyway I just couldn't watch it. I am ok with watching shows with different opinions to me but it seemed to be very preachy

    I gave up on the Newsroom. The opening scene is the series high point in my opinion.

    Currently going through the West Wing, just started Season 6, and it is beginning to lose steam. But I really like Martin Sheen as an actor, so I will probably muddle through.

    Episode 2 is about some border law in Arizona? back in 2010. Only saw the first 10 minutes or so, but it seemed rather topical with what's going on today. Preachy as all fuck, yet topical.

    And yeah, in the little I've seen so far I've already deduced that Daniels is a blow hard asshole Republican living in a perfect Democratic world.

    I think the annoying chick is the lowly, chatty assistant that gets promoted to assistant Producer in the first episode. Cause that happens every day... right? She has a moon face and bug eyes... tough to look at.

    Yep that is the show. I just couldn't watch it because it was so obvious what they were trying to convey. Conservatives are bad mmmmkay.

    This comic series was writer Garth Enni's follow-up to Preacher and while it has it's moments, it's a pale shadow of Preacher. Also, I thought the Preacher tv show absolutely shit the bed doing the comics justice so I don't have high hopes this one will be much better. Still, I'll catch the series and give it a chance.

    Four episodes into The Boys and I'm loving this series! Got Amazon back just to check it out.
