  1. Anybody watch part 2 yet?
  2. I know nothing about the comics background of the TVA but no way are they the good guys, or even the neutral guys. Good guys don't just disintegrate people like that. I am wondering whether Mobius is manipulating Loki straight up, or he is a true believer who is trying to get Loki on his side "for the greater good".
  3. Meh. Collider is claiming that Mando season 3 is delayed some more. Now filming is supposed to begin in early 2022. Oh, I hope this is not true. Maybe this is becoming like one of those productions that is always being announced as "coming soon" but then never actually happens. If true, thanks Disney for slowly killing all my Baby Grogu joy.
  4. Congrats! There was enough there for me in season 1 that I look forward to season 2.
  5. Netflix cancels Jupiter's Legacy: https://tvline.com/2021/06/02/jupiters-legacy-cancelled-season-2-netflix/ I can't say I am surprised, but dammit, I wanted to know what happened to George. And more of Hutch. But I certainly won't miss JD's priggish and bible-thumping main character.
  6. Grumbles. Can't they at least give us a little Baby Grogu something special in between? For those of us who were never Star Wars people but fell hard for the little green bean. I am not picky. Just have him bounce around some more to RR's guitar playing. Eating macarons. Something. I am in Grogu withdrawal. I don't want to wait years because Pedro Pascal is too busy or they cannot get their scripts together, or both.
  7. I don't know. The reason I quoted Meg is because she isn't one of those rumor mongering types. She tends to differentiate between news items and rumors and this was a news item for her. Sigh. I think Boba over-ran its shooting schedule. I also read somewhere that some Marvel thing is to film on this Volume set this summer. That may also be a reason that Mando can't film there now. Who knows? They are so secretive there may never be a Mando season 3 and we may never know the true reason why.
  8. According to Star Wars Meg who posts daily on all things Star Wars filming on Mando season 3 has been pushed back again, this time to September. It was supposed to start filming in April. Part of the reason seems to be that Mando and The Book of Boba Fett share the same filming stage and there were a lot of reshoots for Boba. Sadly this means that there won't be new Mando in early 2022. The earliest would be now late 2022 to Christmas 2022 for any new episodes of Mandalorian. Not only does the long wait suck I find it disheartening that we don't get any encouraging or exciting news abo
  9. Somehow you got your wires crossed in your belief that George is the villain here instead of Walter. Walter set George up so that everybody would believe him to be the villain. Walter killed his own daughter. This last episode made it very clear that Walter has been deceiving his brother and everybody else the entire season. And I don't like Chloe either but the actor is only playing the material she's been given. I know Matt Lanter previously from his voice acting as Anakin Skywalker which I thought was fine and I like his George. I don't think he comes across as smug.
  10. This actually happened a while ago but only now was revealed across social media: Dave Filoni promoted https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/star-wars-the-mandalorian-dave-filoni-lucasfilm-creative-director-1234978130/ I had to laugh since it's the much loathed Kathleen Kennedy by certain sections of the Star Wars fandom who promoted him.
  11. From the cast I do know David Oakes and Leo Suter - both very good actors. Actually, I am guessing Suter plays one of the main characters, considering the historical importance of his character.
  12. This show takes place 100 years after the conclusion of Vikings, it is filmed in many of the same locations, with some of its main characters being descendants of the Vikings characters. It should be in the Drama section. This is needlessly confusing.
  13. Dave Filoni was on Good Morning America for Star Wars Day back in early May and said there would be "lots of the Force" in season 3 of Mando. I may be naive but I am choosing to hope because of that remark that we will have Grogu in season 3.
  14. Adelita and the bloody knife is probably misdirection too. Remember the girlfriend/wife was seen cutting up a big chunk of raw meat. Adelita wants Potter to think the worst. And that rat bastard deserves to believe the worst.
  15. You should watch Ben Barnes in Gold Digger as the younger man involved with an older woman. Personally I am rooting for the goat to get a tearful reunion scene in season 2.
  16. Well, I looked up Leo Suter's (Young Stringer) current acting gigs and he is playing King Harald Hardrada in the Vikings spin-off Vikings:Valhalla. So he may not be able to come back depending on how long this role lasts. Edited to add it sounds like a promising role for Suter - he is playing a famous Viking king.
  17. Well, color me shocked. I thought this was canceled and I was upset with the cliffhanger ending. I know the guy who played the leading man is not coming back. But I hope they can get the actor who played Young Stringer back. I have liked that actor in everything I have seen him in - Victoria, Beecham House, and this show. Fingers crossed.
  18. This was clearly a place holder season because of the pandemic because nothing was permanently settled. Frustratingly so. Well, I hope Meth Manson is a goner with his blood spurting out of his neck like that. For once I had an ounce of respect for Emily with deciding on the spot not to dump her problems on EZ when she realized he was leaving with Gaby. And then actually leaving Galindo. Galindo is all alone for now. He of course deserves so much worse. If there was ever much doubt I think this season solidified that EZ is never going to leave this show alive.
  19. I find it sad that most of them follow the "code" of a guy who to me is not quite sane. He had a psychotic break in the flashbacks after his father committed suicide in front of him and IMO never fully recovered from that. All his reasoning is dubious to me. And yes, I also find it bizarre that it's okay to just stand by and let your younger generation be brutally killed because of some inflexible code. I know Walter betrayed his brother because of long-standing resentment and jealousy but he is not wrong in his thinking that Sheldon shouldn't be in charge. I hope we get a seco
  20. Yes. To be fair, it's been a while since I was a teenager and I have zero interest in teen angst and romance of the "chosen one", etc.. But there was enough other stuff in this show and I would watch a second season.
  21. I agree. He is played by a very good British character actor. That's code for being the villain for me. Well, my favorite is George. I also like Hutch.
  22. So far JD's character is an insufferable prig both in the past and the present. No wonder his kids are so messed up. And common sense should always come before some rigid Code.
  23. But she did it for "true Love"! Don't you know that trumps all? She is pathetic.
  24. I don't know. Maybe it's because he is being played by Ben Barnes - I was even trying to find redeeming qualities in his Punisher character, ha, ha - but is the Darkling a 100% irredeemable? Going by his origin flashback story, they persecuted him so badly until he was pushed to the breaking point and finally snapped. The antler necklace is horrible but I still think Alina is insipid and so annoying most of the time. I haven't read the books and I should probably have more sympathy for Alina. I just don't like her.
