Brian O'Blivion: The battle for the mind of North America will be fought in the video arena: the Videodrome. The television screen is the retina of the mind's eye. Therefore, the television screen is part of the physical structure of the brain. Therefore, whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore, television is reality, and reality is less than television

YES! FINALLY! Finally a manga series I love is getting an anime. THANK YOU! I appreciate this excellent news @Tokoya. I've pretty much given up hope of ever being able to buy a Hunter series on Blu-ray seeing as that would require the series to release more than an average of 5 chapters a year. (That last fact is backed up by zero actual math, because math is of the devil, proven by the fact that god made calculators, and even THEN I won't do math)

Has anyone seen the show "From Dusk till Dawn"? Marathoning it on netflix, and I can't say I'm enjoying it. The brothers suck, the family is boring, and the dialogue is cringe worthy. Wilmer Valderamas is too cool for school though; so much so that it's actually kind of a problem. He steals every scene he's in. Wondering if anyone has already finished it and has a different opinion.

The only good thing wilmer valderrama ever did was that 70's show, everything else is garbage.

Saw it myself, and found it rather boring an uninteresting.

 

The pacing, the dialogue, characterization, and the plot with it's sub plots.

Just really bad and boring ..... really really really BORING.

 

Now the movie wasn't really all that great either IMO, but it's by far better than the series. 


Show me the way to go home - I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago - And it’s gone right to my head
Wherever I may roam - On land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

Just finished it last night. Terrible. The main character is awful, the entire way through. It was absolutely the opposite of engaging. Waste of time. To anyone who hasn't seen it, count yourself lucky, and don't bother.

@Acidrain

I didn't think that there'd be more, do you know if there will be. It's based on a book and I read the synopsis on wikipedia a few weeks ago and for the most part, the series stays mostly faithful (about as much as GoT does) to the source. The only thing I remember about the ending that I read on wikipedia is Kevin's son leaving the baby on Kevin's porch, so I assumed it's ended for good.

yeah season 1 ends where the book ends, and it really does feel like a definitive end for the entire story, but supposedly it was picked up for season 2 so I guess they are going to go off in their own direction now.

Rick and Morty is currently my favourite cartoon, though when Archer's back it'll be a tough call.

Just finished the season finale of Graceland; hated it. Which sucks because I LOVED the first season. I don't know what it is about modern TV where the second seasons of so many shows have to revolve around the trust between the main characters being splintered or broken before inevitably being put back together by seasons end. It is boring and painful to watch and yet so many shows do it.

 

Biggest problem I had was paige.

Is anybody watching 'Legends" with sean bean? I'm loving it so far. Fast, intense, grown up, consistently engaging, with a mystery you actually want to see solved. Really hoping it stays as amazing as its been and doesn't pull a 'Blacklist' and go down hill, hard and fast.
