Its floundering a bit the last 2 episodes, but still good
The daughter’s voice made me stop watching in ep 3

Edit: I was thinking the daughter had to be the child of somebody, her name is Vivian Olyphant :icon-lol:

Not really surprising. Reboots, sequels, whatever it is....Basically never live up to the original. You just can't beat his character in a holler instead of the shithole Detroit.

Just in episode one, the thing that annoyed me was the stereotype rebellious daughter nonsense. Literally no young white teen girl I've ever met would just walk out by herself and into abandoned warehouses, through dark tunnels, etc, especially in a place like that. Even the dumbest of kids are not that oblivious to danger. A group of them, sure. But one girl by herself? No fucking way. Of course they were setting it up for danger, only for the danger to come at the hotel itself....but still.

i think it’ll be a fine watchable show, but the daughter arc is altogether terrible into ep3. I’ll probably go back to watching it in hopes she becomes less of a focus. Doubtful she will though, they always had a girl he needed to protect, the one in the original series was a great actress and good story line.

The girl in the original worked for a few reasons. First, she didn't enter the show for a while. Then, she was only in it every so often. Most importantly, it wasn't a forced father/daughter thing. It was a character with an actual fucked up life who was raised to grow weed and had to survive.

This one is just shoe horned in. The well to do kid who's rebellious because daddy is always working or because tv says she has to be at that age. I'm only on episode 2, but it feels forced right away.
 
finally finished fucking manifest. At least it had an ending I will give it that

I think until football starts I'm going to rewatch Big Love

We finished it about a week ago. The ending was ok, closed it out nicely even if it was a little schmaltzy.
 
Saxon/Britian battles? I'm in. They really don't need the King Arthur element (or maybe they do to draw people in who aren't history junkies), but at least they went with a more historically accurate motivation for the King Arthur story than any mystical nonsense.

its the same author as the last kingdom
 
yeah i mean I think it will have more factual historical stuff because of the author. Obviously arthur is a myth that could be based on many real people but I'm hoping for less of the mystical stuff.

"Painkiller" on Netflix. Pretty good, almost didn't watch it because I thought it was a documentary. Not the happiest thing to watch, but interesting.

It made me so fucking mad. I could be one of the people in the intros talking about their lost loved ones.

I had a friend die from that shit, too. Snorted 2 pills and didn't wake up. Like 25 years old.
 
I've watched it start to finish probably 10 times. Love that shit.
The last 2 part season drags a bit. The whole Vito/gay story takes up way too much of the season and it really wasn't needed. There was already tension between Phil and Tony without it.

On that note, I just watched the episode in S1 where Chris shoots the donut guy in the foot. Every time I rewatch, it annoys me that the customer in that scene is Vito and they recast a very recognizable, morbidly obese guy in the same show. HBO seems to like doing that.
