  1. It's that Lazlow considers Sean to be his best friend, but I didn't need to hear about Sean's poor money management for another week. Between gambling away all his savings to whining that his friends won't partake in his MLM scheme, I'm sick of him. Didn't think the courtroom thing was very funny either. It felt forced in there. I do like how Guillermo is standing up for himself more. Even though he couldn't play Nandor and Nadia off each other for long, I don't blame him for trying.
  2. Saw this on Disney+ since I was bored, lol. Have to agree with the general consensus, it's not a bad movie, but adds nothing. The realistic visuals take away from any expression the lions made, and the voice acting (with the exception of Rogen, Eichner, Kasumba, and Oliver) was weak. Florence Kasumba really stood out with Shenzi. Just menacing as hell. Something that really bothered me visually was that I couldn't distinguish any of the lionesses apart. With the male lions, Scar had that malnourished looking mane while Mustafa had the grandest one. Simba's was similar. But I coul
  3. I'm not sure how the TVA would work in s2, especially since MoM will have been out by that point. But it was by far the best setting and I would love to see more of Casey, Hunter 15, etc. Even Ravonna. As much as I loved the Loki/Mobius dynamic, this is an entirely different Mobius, so the relationship would be different. Would love to see Jotun Loki in action at least once. I don't know why they didn't show anything from the first film when the events in it were so important. Sylvie has potential as a character, but they need to let that forced romance go. It doesn't help tha
  4. I love the variant posters, but damn, President Loki and Kid Loki's faces have been photoshopped way too much. They look like mannequins.
  5. Much better episode than the past 2 weeks. I wish we had gotten more with the other Loki variants, but they got the point across about who Loki is. I'm in the minority, but I really didn't see the big deal with President Loki and alligator Loki. I dunno. Maybe because their scenes were so brief? Loki has shown a lot of growth, though. He's finally admitting his wrongdoings and can understand why people don't trust him. He clearly wants a connection and I'm glad to see him reaching out. Richard Grant was amazing as Classic Loki. The perfect blend of cynical and bravado. He did
  6. It felt like a cheap framing device. I'm fine with Loki and Sylvie bonding, but I wish it hadn't been implied that they could possibly save Lamentis, even if they were only trying to save themselves. The Pompeii scene worked because it was brief and while Loki was practically giddy with excitement, Mobius reminded him that they were there for a reason, and that it was poor taste to be openly celebrating. But they spent a whole episode on Lamentis, showing the citizens who were struggling to survive. I knew Loki and Sylvie would make it, but it happens so fast, no muss, no fuss a
  7. I had this exact thought. I don’t know if it was poor direction or what, but Ravonna actually stood back when Sylvie grabbed the TemPad, and none of the guards made ANY attempt to stop her from escaping. I was like "Why are they just standing there?" I could see if Sylvie had a weapon or if she was running too fast for them to catch her, but nope, they just...let her go. And she’s been on the run since childhood and no one has managed to catch her? Plus all that build up for Lamentis to go down in flames just for the TVA to conveniently show up to the rescue? There was a slight impl

    S01.E03: Lamentis

    As much as I loved the drunken scenes, I see what you mean. One of Loki's characteristics is that he's always thinking ahead (like he told Mobius that he's always "10 steps ahead of you") which makes it hard to get the jump on him. After he and Sylvie got on the ship, it's like Loki just said screw it and did whatever. I couldn't understand why Loki wasn't interrogating Sylvie more, and I really couldn't believe that Loki would just get drunk and potentially botch the mission. He finally had the Variant and she couldn't escape without the TemPad from Loki. Why would he let himself get com
  9. Wow, that was good. So glad it did not disappoint. Tom Hiddleston owns this, no doubt, but he's got an interesting plot as well as a great supporting cast. That life reel couldn't have been easy to watch, but it had to be done. What I didn't get was that they never referenced the first Thor movie, or what happened to the Frost Giants. There's no question of mind control or influence when it came to that. Loki's actions on Asgard were entirely his own. He tried to wipe out a whole race of people just to keep his secret hidden, and I couldn't believe that Mobius never brought that up.
  10. I know I'm past the Auntie age because I had to look up what a bodycon dress is. And the Millie Rock. 😭 Gabrielle is this season's MVP. The gang retreat was better than the first and she owned the Auntie sketch, along with Laci as the fairy godmother. I kept rewinding that one. But the vampire/demon stuff at the end just felt like a poor way to shoehorn the rest of the cast into it. The apocalypse side plot still doesn't make sense, but even worse, it's just not funny. It wasn't that logical last season, but at least the cast was just hanging out and having fun, rather than try
  11. Honestly, I thought that was a terrible premier. Who wrote these skits? Some of those lines were just straight up cringe. I do like Robin, but her acting is too hammy. She just tries too hard and exaggerates everything. I understand Quinta couldn't come back this season, but they couldn't even mention her during the apocalypse scenes? As it was, it didn't really make sense. Robin gets knocked out and ends up in some random warehouse? I dunno, it was just dumb. And Quinta's absence is noticeable in the show. As for the newbies, it's still early. Laci was pretty charmi
  12. The man really can wear a suit. That three piece that he wore during the first Avengers promo was everything. Getting more excited for this, although I don't want my hopes too high. Also, I saw a box of Boku juice in the very end trailer. Does anyone remember that? The sophisticated high school juice box of the 90s. Ha!
  13. Going to direct streaming was the best thing possible for this movie, because it meant that I could fast-forward/skip all the boring stuff. Was anyone really clamoring to see the Russells again? Why bring them back? Anytime one of the Madison's Scooby Doo scenes happened, I just zoned out. Sadly, I wouldn't have cared if they ended up as casualties of Godzilla or Kong. What a waste of Brian Tyree Henry. Suprisingly, Jia was a great addition, and one of the only humans that I genuinely felt for. I think the writers had wanted people to like Madison the way they liked Jia, but Madison
  14. So this is the April Fool’s joke this year. The Aqua Teen (or Aqua Child) theme song dubbed with childrens voices is cracking me up. I just wish I knew the lineup. I think they’re going to show an episode of Metalocalypse, along with a few other retired shows.
  15. That was good. The slower pace doesn't bother me, I think we needed that after the batshit crazy WandaVision. I didn't care for the first fight scene. It just looked so cheap for some reason. And the closeups to Sam when he was in the air was terrible. Closeups on scenes like that don't usually look good, imo. I truly sympathize with Sam wanting to save the family boat, but I'm on Sarah's side. She's been on her own for five years, raising two small children, trying her best to keep things afloat. She clearly doesn't want to sell it, but I see why she feels she has no choice.
  16. Yep to both of these. Definitely thought sparks were going to fly between Lavelle and Meeka during the lion trial, which would have made things awkward for the obvious reasons. And in this day and age, no way would this charade have gone by so long without someone suggesting a DNA test, and not just go by the word of an old man with a sketch. Surprised that Semmi didn't suggest this to Akeem, but Semmi had less to do this time around. Missed opportunity for an ancestry.com joke.
  17. I think it would have been better if Lavelle was Semmi's son, not Akeem's. I never once bought the bond between Akeem and Lavelle and I could have believed that Semmi had slept with Mary all those years ago and just lied to Akeem about it. It actually started out pretty good, but the cracks started showing about 30 minutes in. Part of what made the first so funny was seeing Akeem try to fit in among the New Yorkers, but Lavelle trying to fit in at Zamunda didn't have the same comedic value. Most of the ending had me just going "Oh, ok." Like Lavelle and Mirembe getting married
  18. Emotionally and acting wise, that was on point. It's called WandaVision, but Elizabeth Olsen carried this show. She deserves an Emmy nod at least. It did feel anticlimactic, though. The Vision fight was OK. I hated that line from Monica about the townspeople not knowing what she did for them. Well yeah Monica, because Wanda trapped them trapped in the hex in agonizing pain, unable to even sleep because Wanda's nightmares were poisoning them. She even tried choking them when the begging got to be too much. They're right to be angry. And they've been exposed to the radiation in t
  19. This episode may have been more exposition than I prefer so close to the end, but it was necessary. Kinda bummed that Agatha wasn't behind it all, although I loved her backstory. It was interesting how she actually did want to be good, but just said forget it in the end when the other witches were fighting her. Seeing the heart Vision circled on the deed is a callback to the first episode, with the heart drawn on the calendar. That was really sad. Plenty has been said on Elizabeth's performance (and for good reason) so I wanted to mention the visuals. A few that really stood ou
  20. Monica's superhero transformation was glorious. When I saw her blue eyes, I basically squealed. It wasn't just her going through the barrier, it was knowing the radiation could seriously harm her and going in anyway. Ultimate hero move. I can't wait to see what she does next. Loving Kathryn as Agatha. Her evil cackling at the end was perfect. You can tell she's enjoying this. Her theme song cracked me up. It actually sounded like Kathryn singing it! Honestly, I thought poor Billy and Tommy were going to be in that basement lair, unconscious or hanging up by their thumbs, or
  21. I wondered the same thing. But cells changing doesn't have to mean superpowers, either. We know that's the case with Monica, but what about the citizens? Could this have a radiation/cancer-like effect? It's too convenient that Agnes was at Ellis Ave. Also, when Vision said he didn't know his past, Agnes' tone seemed almost accusatory. I am really in awe of Wanda's power. When Jimmy said the town was moving, I didn't realize that Wanda was actually expanding Westview. Even if she can't control every citizen, it's just damn impressive. She really could have taken out Thanos on h
  22. Rerun of the LA couple moving to Ecuador. Probably would have picked up the first place and dropped it in the city if they could. Wasn’t surprised that they went with house 2, it was more resort-y. What really got me was that quick shot of them making out in the end. I barely see HH couples do a quick peck on the cheek, let alone straight up mouth to mouth. It was nice! They should let them show affection more often.
  23. I know Asta was a young mother, but she barely looks older than Jay. Is Jay in high school or college? I wonder if Jay was selling the pills with the stolen prescription pad, or just taking the pills herself. It would explain why she’s always knocked out. Glad Max made a friend, although I don’t think the girl saw Harry as an alien, but as a human. Still think the pilot was the best episode. These past two haven’t really been engaging me. 😞
  24. I saw that ep 3 is available on SYFI OnDemand, but haven't watched it yet.
  25. That's how I am with it, too. I thought last week's episode was better, but this one did have some good parts. Harry talking to Max on the phone was hilarious. I like that they're incorporating Asta's heritage and customs into the series. It took me a minute to see why she was cutting off her hair and burning the scrubs, but it's also a natural ritual for her character and I'm glad they're not making a huge deal of it. Nice that D'arcy and the girl from the bowling alley are friends who just get on each other's nerves, rather than actual enemies. How long had that poor guy
