Last night's Doctor Who was OK I suppose; an extremely middling episode seemingly written to serve one sentence uttered by The Doctor at the end of the episode. They really are wasting a good cast here.

We also finished watching that last season of The Deuce over the weekend. Easily one of the best drama's out there and ends well. I won't say 'satisfying', the content and arcs for the majority of characters are largely grim - there are resolutions here and there and the show was, start to finish, brilliantly written, directed and performed.

I'm glad they ended on 3 seasons. Not sure whether that was always the intention, but they certainly made it feel that way.

so E4 picked up Batwoman

https://www.tvwise.co.uk/2020/01/e4-acquires-uk-rights-to-bat...

not that it matters the "Arrowverse" has been on the decline for a while now and apparently this doesn't do much to fix that BUT what is important is this is ANOTHER show E4 has got that would normally never show on normal TV (the other being Star Trek Discovery)

what does channel 4 have that the likes of Sky or Netflix don't?

@FullbringIchigo Hahahahahahahahahahaha

Brilliant!

I want to insist that everyone watch it.

Channel has no sense it would seem. Batwoman genuinely is awful, and awfully made.

@KALofKRYPTON but if we all watch it, even to laugh at it they will think it's successful because it would get good viewing figures

@FullbringIchigo It's already been renewed for season 2 based on the abysmal figures in the states 😂

It's a woke vanity project, it won't be cancelled until they absolutely have to.

SO how about that cameo in the last Crisis on Infinite Earths, no spoilers but i was NOT expecting that

@FullbringIchigo I honestly don't think anyone was! Could make Flashpoint more interesting!

@FullbringIchigo I expect them to try and make good on the Diggle/GL connection. Going to need extreme care though.
Diggle (and the actor's performance) is as dull as dishwater, and Arrow has explored him plenty - so the standard 'origin' formula will be a bit difficult. Hopefully they don't go that way and maybe do a GL ensemble, or even better - just a Guy Gardner series!

@KALofKRYPTON i never was a big fan of the Digg;e character, i would have been happy if he was written out if i'm honest

@FullbringIchigo
The more I think about it - an ensemble Green Lantern show could be amazing! Expensive, but amazing.

@KALofKRYPTON 2 major Lanterns?

i'm guessing one is Hal, like it always is but i hope the other is John Stewart, he deserves more recognition

KALofKRYPTON

@FullbringIchigo I'd rather they went with Guy and Hal for a meeting Sinestro story, but I expect it'll be Hal and John.

There's every chance they could eschew both and go with Simon Baz and Jess Cruz. Easier 'modern' material to adapt and they could always show a 'current' already yellow Sinestro and show Hal etc. in flashbacks 🤔

@KALofKRYPTON this is true

i'm just happy Green Lantern is coming back in some way, especially after that movie

KALofKRYPTON

@FullbringIchigo See, I don't really get people's beef with the movie. I mean OK, the cg suit wasn't a total success, but the direction, performances and even the script are fine.
It certainly has a villain problem, but Mark Strong's Sinestro was primed to solve that for the sequel.

In fact, there's a lot more I like about it than I don't.

@KALofKRYPTON oh don't get me wrong, i enjoyed it BUT it did pretty much fail for DC and we haven't seen anything of the character in live action since bar that little bit in Justice League

Just finished watching the final season of Orange is the New Black. I have to say, for it being the show's last season, it ended on a pretty good note. At first I wasn't prepared for the change of tone in the series. For those who haven't watched it, it's a comedy show about female prison inmates and how they go about their daily lives. I've been following it since the first season came out and I consider it to be the funniest show on Netflix. However, for the last season, the creators decided to focus on more serious topics such as rehabilitation of inmates in general (education, finances etc.), how illegal immigrants are treated in USA and also about helping these people in real life via the creative team's own fund raiser that was made based on one of the characters of the show, which I thought was very cool.

At first I didn't like the change of tone since I always come to have certain expectations about shows when I've watched numerous seasons already. So the first couple of episodes were not what I wanted. However, the more I watched the more I started appreciating the messages of the show and the unfair circumstances many inmates are facing in USA. Some scenes were truly heartbreaking, but one that really got to me was when they showed children in court without any parents who were going to be deported. The judge read them their rights and asked if they had a lawyer with them, or if they even knew what a lawyer was. It was absolutely sickening to see this being done to children, it's totally unnecessary and disrespectful. (Just to clarify, all of this was fictional, not real scenes, but I'm guessing it is based on real events)

So while I did have mixed feelings about the final season overall, I at least appreciate the direction the creators took it just to end off on a good note. I'm both happy and sad to see the show end, but it's been going on for a long time now and it was time for a proper sendoff. Highly recommend watching it if any of you haven't done so yet!

Just finished watching season 2 of DC Titans on Netflix. It was overall a very good season, much better than the first one which focused too much on origin stories, which is understandable. I don't know many of these characters in general so it's a great thing to see them get some attention in modern media.

Anyway, I thought the first episode felt out of place since it should've been included in the first season. The cliffhanger at the end of season 1 was completely unnecessary because after the first episode of season 2, the storyline completely changes to something else. But after that, the story keeps up a good pace until all the flashback episodes. I get why they are there but the plot felt so freaking disjointed because of them. I just wanted to see the main gang continue on with the story.

The one great aspect of this season though was the introduction of so many new characters. I really liked that since it provided so much variety in every episode. Moreover, the team that we have right now is really good but I can't help but feel that the thing that happened at the end of the season finale felt incredibly forced and stupid. I hope though that the next season will be more consistent with the episodes now that we should have all the characters we need for the complete team. I'd seriously be annoyed if they keep adding more flashback episodes/origin stories at that point. I just want to see more action now rather than distractions for the characters.
