    Why is that in continuity?

    So, I watched the first five episodes in the span of roughly 30 hours about ten days ago. Came back around to watch episode six and holy fuck was that a mistake. Not the episode itself, which I think is par for the course (with bonus weird dance Bond opening for some reason), but the show in general. I had forgotten just how 'different' the show is and it took me awhile to adjust. And I don't think I did. I'm out until the season is over. Still interested enough to finish the season at least, but I think I need to watch it over a few days rather than week to week. Randomly: Is this set in current time? I'm getting a big 1977 vibe and don't know if I'm supposed to.

    We Can Never Go Home - Bad thing happens and things spiral from there. I was enjoying this until the rather sudden ending. Almost like this needed a sixth issue or a rethink of pacing from the start. Super Sons #1 - I've never read any Damien before. Seems annoying. Batman #18 - I'm sure this plays fine in context. Out of context, not so much. Would have been nice if it said Part 3 at some point before the last page. Single Issues: 10Graphic Novels: 2 Trades: 30 (217)

    I think I've softened on my views of OMD. The story itself isn't the greatest, but I like the run (BND) that spun out of it. Until #700. I did not like the Superior Spider-Man run at all. Could have been a nifty five part story, but went on way too long. Just took the fun out of the book for me.

    Black Jack Ketchum - I'll be honest, I have zero clue what happened in this. I tend to zone out a little when things get mystical, but even so, this was a step beyond that. Iron Fist: The Living Weapon - I thought this would sorta pick up where the Immortal Weapon series left off. I guess things happened in the in-between time and I am a little lost on the Ku'n Lun of it all. This might have been an okay book. But this art is some of the worst I have ever seen. I want to say this looks all 90s EXTREME~!!~!, but that would insult the 90s. Single Issues: 8Graphic Novels: 2 Trades: 29 (212)

    Power Rangers: I think we watched different movies. Short version, I was whelmed. Pretty much as I expected going in, an okay movie that only got made because it says Power Rangers on the poster. Unlike the new TMNT movies, this just wasn't fun enough for my liking. Longer spoiler-y version: Oh, and as for the Rangers themselves:

    The minor annoyances thread

    To sum up the kind of day I have been having: I took off my coat. In doing so, I got a static shock. Which fried the headphones I was wearing. How does that even happen?

    Nightcrawler (2014) - So, Kurt is back from the dead. No idea how that happened or how he came back. But that is the entire plot of these 12 issues. Things happen and I am not sure if I am supposed to know these people or not. If so, it does a bad job of catching me up. If not, it does a bad job introducing the characters.

    Watched the first four episodes today. And it's interesting. The fractured nature of the storytelling has a point in that 'he's crazzy~!' and all that. But it can be really difficult to follow at times. The two leads have a very awkward chemistry, which again, I think is the point. It just isn't that enjoyable. And I don't really know what I was hoping from this series, but this feels like it is taking forever to move along. I have the next two episodes ready to go. I'm still interested enough to continue with them, but that might be my jumping off point.

    Nancy in Hell: On Earth - I read the first mini at some point last year and apparently did not post my thoughts. Which is a shame as I would love to know what I thought. I remember it being a fun read with a badass chick murder-killin some demons with a chainsaw. This was not that much fun. Heaven vs. Earth vs. Hell politics. So boring. Great covers tho. Nancy in Hell: A Dragon in Hell! - Probably would have liked this more if I had read it first. I have zero knowledge of the Dragon so this was not for me.

    Had to kill some time at work this morning, so I figured I'd read some random DC laying around. I have no context for these, so let's see how well this goes. Nightwing #15 - Says epilogue on the cover so I'll assume this is coming off of some sort of multi-part thing. But this felt like a decent jumping on point, so kudos for that. A nice simple issue with no real action that let me get a sense of the story before. So, thumbs up to this one. Superman #17 - Two kids in the spooky woods. This was pure filler that I don't even know if it would make the trade. Green Lanterns #17 - I have no idea who these Lanterns are. This did little to change that or to make me care.

    Seven Soldiers of Victory - I don't know about these. Well, that is not true. I found these to be bad. Like really bad. Maybe I made the entire thing up in my head, but I thought these were supposed to be really good. Each mini was bad and that ending was downright stupid. I care about nothing the entire time. Such a waste of time. ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times - Basically a girl and her cat in the apocalypse. There is some higher story here, but it wasn't engaging at all. Had promise and missed its mark. Single Issues: 0Graphic Novels: 2 Trades: 24 (184)

    What are you watching and enjoying?

    I'm sitting here trying to think about my favorite episode from the season and I cannot pick. When it ended, I wasn't as high on the season, but yeah, better than the first. Also, Pablo is a great sidekick.

    The investigating detective's son wrote it, right? That he did. Which I cannot say I noticed until the last few pages.

    Green River Killer - A graphic novel Dark Horse put out about six years ago. Was well done. With no action and basically two hundred pages of talking heads this was a surprisingly quick read. Art was on point as well. Like I said, well done. However, it does come off as an episode of, say, Criminal Minds. Makes sense with the 'based on true event' thing and all.

    Logan

    I enjoyed this. I have a few issues with it, but I got what I expected and it was well done. You could really see this Deadpool influence . So many fucks. One thing that made me laugh:

    Wolverine: The End - Seemed like a reasonable thing to read before Logan. But, no. This is not good. Not good at all. I don't think any of these End books have been. Gotham Central - Now this, this was excellent. Only small complaint is the art got a little bit rough in the third trade. Other than that, I loved this.

    Random wrestling thoughts

    That time WCW showed up on Battle Dome to beat up Terry Crews. Man, I loved Battle Dome. It was no WMAC Masters, but what is really?

    Immortal Iron Fist: The Complete Collection - That name still annoys me. Anywho, this went downhill quickly. To start, the art is complete shit. The main series is a mess. The Immortal Weapons are lacking, which is a shame, as I feel they could be a fun team. Also, too much filler about random Iron Fists. Focus on Danny and call it a day. The Immoral Weapons mini is included, but again, it is lacking. Get back stories (finally) on 3 of the 5, but they felt like I was reading an illustrated Wiki page.

    The Immortal Iron Fist: The Complete Collection - But it is not complete. Boo. Otherwise, I liked this. Not the biggest fan of the triple narratives, but it all worked out in the end. I look forward to Vol 2. Single Issues: 0Trades/Graphic Novels: 14 (90)

    Jonah Hex: Tall Tales - A bunch of short Hex stories. Some better than others. Don't think it worked well as a trade. The 'Hex is a badass' story gets boring after a while. Jacked - Did not enjoy the ending, but it was good until then. Single Issues: 0Trades/Graphic Novels: 13 (72)
