    Every comic you've read in 2017

    Midnight Sun - A semi-fictionalized story of an airship crash near the North Pole in the late 1920s. While I liked it, this could have been so much more. Felt a little like short vignettes more than a complete story. Read that it was supposed to be 6 issues and got cut to 3. It really shows. Loki: Agent of Asgard - I gave this every chance I could. I really did. I pushed thru the first trade. I tried crawling my way thru the second, but I said fuck it and stopped half way. I think I read probably 7 issues and I have no idea what is going on. There is new Young Good Loki, but also Old Evil Loki. But the Old is New and the Good is Evil but Good. And then I think another Loki shows up? Maybe. Look, I know things came before, but this in no way helps me out. Major things are happening surrounding this and I have no idea what those are. And then I think a couple events happened. I think. I picked these up at the library because all three trades were right there. Same as I did with Hawkeye. I was able to follow those with a flowchart, google and a 30 minute YouTube video.

    Have you read the revised and expanded edition? Been debating getting the audiobook.

    Random wrestling thoughts

    Somewhat not so randomly, I've been (very) slowly watching the G1 from 2015. Only 3 days in, so it will take a while. Watching shows without commentary so just odd. But that is not the main takeaway so far. No that would be that I hate the High Fly Flow. Hatred. Love a good Frog Splash, HATE the High Fly Flow.

    What are you watching and enjoying?

    I really loved Chuck when I first marathoned the show. And while I still enjoy it, rewatching it a few (okay, more than a few) times has revealed a flawed, but as stated, fun show. You can really see that production was not really the smoothest. It really is one of those 'once seen cannot be unseen' things, but the editing is horrible. And the network ordering additional episodes for seasons 3 and 4 is really noticeable. Both seasons end with a big moment and then keep on going with no real direction. The guest stars are a lot of fun. Timothy Dalton is just so much fun. And John Larroquette is a great for a laugh. As for the main cast, I agree with the Buy More staff being kinda pointless after a while. Chuck 'works' at the Buy More as a cover, but midway thru season 3, Sarah stops having a job. But Sarah stops doing a lot of things. Like being a badass. Can't have that for some reason. Interested in hearing your thoughts on the finale (or really the last 3-4 episode arch). It has never sat well with me. Seemed like a drastic shift in tone for what was a very light, fun show.

    The Music Thread

    Just realized that every time I buy new headphones (which happens way too often), the first thing I listen to is God Hates Us All by Slayer.

    Episode 01: ECW Barely Legal

    I believe Crow Sting was a Scott Hall idea.

    Having just finished watching the rematch I'll say the original is better than the sequel. Now, I watching both know the result (and I HATE knowing) but I felt it hurt the rematch more. Still great fun. That Okada guy is having himself a year. Also, Cyrus doing his 92 Royal Rumble Bobby Heenan impersonation got old real fast.

    This week on Lois & Clark: Our heroes find themselves in quite a pickle when an evil businessman learns to harness the powers of photoshop. I am so happy my laptop decided to play DVDs again. I've missed this.

    The "I need to vent" thread

    So that didn't go as bad as it could have. So, I got that going for me. Bad news is the bills have already started to arrive and it is an absolute mess. Not having insurance has turned this very 'interesting'.

    The "I need to vent" thread

    So, I'm off to have a bit of surgery in a couple of hours. Nothing life threatening or the like, but something that does need to be done. Yeah, not exactly the best of times. I've been dealing with things since NYE, so a bit of time has passed. Yet, it didn't really hit me until I woke up this morning. Yeah, not happy about this. Not at all.

    Wonder Woman

    I'll echo that. The two women behind me were clearly having the greatest time with the movie. I quite enjoy that. I really want more Diana & Her Howling Commandos, with the war fighting and badassery. One thing

    reMIND - Two graphic novels that looked really nifty at the library. I quite enjoyed this. The ending got a little random, but I didn't mind too much. While looking up the creator, I found he put up the thing for free. Worth a look at that price.

    Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    To be fair, the last ten minutes was fun. Lion-horse-bat shooting lasers? I don't own a van, but I'd slap that on the side in a second. It was just everything else that I found boring.

    Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    Sorceress (1982) - This was a Dread Media review some seven months ago, I listened about a month ago and watched it just now. Darryll calling it basically 'badass sword & sorcery van art in movie form' made me need to watch this. And it disappointed. I was bored mostly. But I didn't grow up with these kinda of movies so I don't really have a fondness for the genre.

    Riverdale

    Overall, I cannot say I was bored. Finished stronger than it started and I'll be along for the second season. I will echo Will in that I hope it stays at 13 episodes.

    My laptop randomly decided it wanted to play DVDs again. So I did what anyone would do: Bust out Lois & Clark. Great fun. But I still have one unanswered question: Who the fuck is Mike?

    Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2

    I'll pile on the Rooker praise. The last 5-10 minutes of the movie are most excellent.
  19. A couple of thoughts. First: Second, I agree with Tom: The Three Levels of Hell is not good. Triple H vs. Austin never did it for me. Third, Clumsy by OLP is a really good album.

    Legion

    I was unaware that the season was only 8 episodes. So I watched the last two today. And they may have been the most straightforward of the season. And I still really do not know how I feel about this show. Really feels like it slipped into style over everything. They Bond sequence, the silent movie and the Pink Floyd all felt inserted just to be weird. I have no idea. Polly in for a season 2, but maybe not weekly.

    Play It to the Bone - I have no idea why/how/why this popped into my head last week while at work. None. It doesn't make sense. I remember watching the VHS once when I was like 14 and thinking it was okay. Guess what? That was incorrect. It is quite bad. And long. And bad. The highlight was seeing an unexcited Bruce Buffer for ten seconds. And I still have no earthly idea why I randomly remembered this movie. That is starting to annoy.

    Every comic you've read in 2017

    Poison Ivy: Circle of Life and Death - Didn't really get the Ivy character. Granted, my knowledge base is an unrelated cartoon from 25 years ago and some comics I read 10 years after that. Outside of that, this was just bland. Amelia Cole and the Unknown World - Now this, this I dug. Standard 'character thrust into a new world' story, but with a likable hero and sidekick duo that makes this a fun little story. Already have the next two coming my way.

    Hawkeye - Had a real fun vibe going for the first two trades. Then the Hawkeyes parted way and it lost pretty much all the fun. All-New Hawkeye (both of them) - Never regained the fun. The dual narrative in both series didn't work for me (and really, the flashbacks were the best parts). And the entire thing with the children never engaged me. Overall, I never felt like I completely knew what was going on. Like Avenger-y things. And I don't think Kate is every really explained in any detail. Kinda felt like I started watching Season 3 Episode 7 of random TV show. Yeah, I can catch on after a while, but I will miss things. And since I have complained about these things before, I like that Marvel collected these in a simple, easy to follow manner, even with the re-numbering of the series.

    Random wrestling thoughts

    I didn't watch Wrestlemania live last night. Mainly because I know better. I knew they would go long and that 4AM alarm would have come mighty quick. So, stay off the internet and watch it after work today. So I got off work, drove home, got some dinner. Started watching. And watching. And watching. Still watching in fact. I'm just over 4 hours in and it says I still have an hour left. I don't care what it is. 7ish hours is too fucking long for a wrestling show.

    Alabaster: The Good, The Bad and The Bird - I enjoyed this, but I have little idea as to why. This has many elements I dislike, yet somehow I didn't. What I did dislike is that this is Vol. 3. It is not noted anywhere in/on/near/around this book, except one line in the legal fine print in the beginning. Such a shame. Riverdale: One-Shot - A prequel to the show, centered around the four leads. Standard tie-in book really. Does make the Grundy thing more awkward tho.
