@MightyDemon82 Somone mentioned an animated show with Ubisoft characters on a podcast I watched this weekend. I thought they were joking, until they showed a clip of Rayman presenting the news!

This could be the best thing ever or worst.

@JohnnyShoulder It is certainly the most interesting Marvel project currently on the docket (besides the proper Spider-verse sequel).

@JohnnyShoulder I've had very low general interest in comicbook/superhero/MCU related stuff over the years, but between the actor and the setting, this does look interesting to me.

@FuriousMachine @Malaise Yeah I've fallen off the superhero tv and film stuff over the last few years, with only the Spider-verse and The Batman films that I've enjoyed (and the TNMT animation if that counts).

I'm quite pessimistic about most things these days, but thisnat the very least has me intrigued regarding how it turns out.

Finished X-Men 97. I feel like there is plenty you could be critical of (especially when it comes to pacing), but I just think it is so cool this show even exists. I feel like even ten years ago we wouldn't have got an adaptation quite like this. It is the one blessing of the Marvel content machine, their need to constantly pump out content means they're willing to greenlight riskier projects like this to keep the slates filled. Some will write this off as nostalgia bait, but I think this is genuinely one of the best Marvel related things we've had in years.

Doctor Who was much much much better this week. I mean sure, it was a Moffat episode so they were always great under Davies but yep, another great one. Funnily enough, a companion piece to the Iraq critiques of the Eccleston era, just going after war profiteering rather than the politicians. I still have issues with the green screen making everything have the same artificial depth to the scene and the general lack of extras making the sets feel empty but at least this one justified that, being a bottle episode. Feel a lot more positive about the series’ spirit being intact after this one, it’s always had a radical edge to it and the Whittaker ones tended to slant a bit sorta weirdly right-wing in its upholding of the establishment, so to have The Doctor actually critical again is a good sign given its Disney money.

I've never seen a Dr. Who episode in my life, but I've always been curious about it. I was considering tracking down the 2005 version with Eccleston, but seeing as it's considered a continuation rather than a reboot, will I be completely lost if I haven't seen the earlier stuff or is it a good place to jump in?

@FuriousMachine That is where I started after a few decades of not watching it. I only had a passing interest in it as a kid.

I got all the way through to the last couple of episodes in the Peter Capaldi run, before completely falling off it, and never seen one since!

@FuriousMachine
I watched the revival long before I ever saw a single episode of classic who and I never felt lost.

@FuriousMachine A couple years ago I tried watching it for the first time and I went back to the beginning, as that seemed the best place to start. I made it through about 3-4 episodes before giving up. It was really corny and I couldn’t tolerate the outdated effects and low budget feel to it. People told me some better points to jump in, but the franchise was already soured for me. If you like older TV, your mileage may vary.
