I've been re-watching The Young Pope and The Leftovers again. They're both really, really good, and would probably make my Top Ten. Lenny/Pius XIII is one of the most entertaining manipulators in TV history.

The Young Pope
The Leftovers
The Shield
Mad Men
The Wire
Battlestar Galactica (fell apart at the end)
Justified (also fell apart)
Breaking Bad
Better Call Saul

Isn't Buddhism based on reincarnation? And we all keep reincarnating in higher or lower beings until we reach a state of nirvana, and break the cycle of reincarnation. So there's no "bad place" except for the one we're living in.

Kong is just another low-level kaiju for Gypsy. Gypsy's weapons are easily capable of hurting or one-shot killing him, and Gypsy has stood up to tougher punishment than what Kong will dish out.

Insert Harambe joke.

Sad. How do you sign on for a co-starring role in a superhero show, know you’ll have some scenes with your shirt off, and NOT do a few cycles of PEDs?

I think it would be a problem in a movie. But a tv series is perfect for a MAX adaptation.

Ennis’s Punisher wasn’t an automaton. MAX was a fascinating character study, made Morris by the fact that Ennis would slooooooooowly peel Frank like an onion, one layer at a time. The emotional impact of him holding his daughter - and of him giving her up - is only possible when you dole these nuggets out slowly, but by bit.

The Netflix version beats you over the head with the angst, which admittedly is a common mistake.

I'm halfway through the second episode.

This doesn't seem like the Punisher. That doesn't make it a bad show, but it really doesn't seem like the character from the comics.

TBH I think they should have borrowed heavily from Ennis's Punisher MAX, for both the story and the mood.

On Episode 1 but just wanted to say, I never thought of Frank as a conservative. But it's so obvious, I'm shamed. However, it also paints his relationship with Daredevil, who's a "SJW", in a different light.

Ugh, I really hope that isn't the direction they go with this.

Yeah I've heard good things about Pathfinder.

In a sense, he could, but he wouldn't turn Gotham into Metropolis. He'd do it through blackmail and manipulation of the major power players in Gotham. Nudging them, controlling them, setting them against each other. Which isn't really cleaning it up.

General Chat / Re: The move to Impeach Trump
« on: November 15, 2017, 04:37:23 PM »
This is a waste of time. It isn’t supported by the Democratic leadership, will go nowhere, will only serve to ignite Trump’s base and will add more fuel to the bitter partisan mood of the country (Yes, I know Trump does this as well). It’s just Cohen and some pals peacocking. Stupid.

Bane has kicked Batmans ass in this fight and defeated him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDuetklFtDQ

Holy shit, I never saw that scene. Bane beat an out-of-shape Batman who would have gotten stomped by Cap while in his prime? Gotta think on this.

Cap utterly destroys him.

If Thor was enough to make Nefaria doubt himself, Kurse will have him shitting himself.

Oddly, Sandahl's name came to mind as I was getting ready to type my post up despite knowing it was Brigitte. 
And thanks for the heads up I'm going to look for Hundra.

There's a cool clip on Youtube of Hundra wiping out 20 or so warriors who are trying to hunt her down, using guerrilla tactics and straight-up badassdom.

The music is composed by Ennio Morricone.

At first you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention.
