  1. I thought Ruby did a decent job overall, and certainly seemed to be growing into the role. However, I’d much rather keep Kate Kane and her relationships with the other characters, than move on to some new person for the sake of continuity. If they do insist on replacing her, I certainly hope “Ryan Wilder” is a cover for casting- Billie Finger has a nice ring to it though... Also- Ryan Wilder, who lives in a van. Ryan “lives in a van” Wilder. Ryan Van Wilder. Huh.
  2. Norwegian is an underrated bad guy accent - thanks to the original Dragon Tattoo movies, it has a strong “secret Nazi” vibe.
  3. My interpretation is that Courtney and Pat are still trying to keep their whole “we have a giant flying robot” thing on the down low. Which, long term is going to be an issue. But for now I get why they would try to keep STRIPE secret- once it becomes common knowledge, it’s not going to be difficult to track that thing back to them. In any case, this was another solid episode. The only really dodgy effect was the CGI bus during the crash- otherwise the show continues to look great. Also, Pat is correct- Paperboy was the best arcade game.
  4. I know we didn’t get a really good look at the photo, but I felt like they intentionally had Flash’s face blurred by the crease, so they could keep their options open. I don’t know if there’s much to add otherwise- I thought it was a solid pilot. Hopefully they can keep up the production values- it really did feel different than the usual CW shows. It’s a bit ironic that the JSA stuff feels like “Watchmen- but happy!” given what Moore was doing with that series. But I like them, and I’m curious to see more about that team. Otherwise, I’d probably be watching this anyway - but I’m glad that it’s off to a promising start.
  5. Huh? But Kate definitely recognized Old Man Batman when she and Kara met him during Crisis - which means that her Bruce should have also looked like Kevin Conroy. Is this another thing that got changed when they rebooted the universe? If so, dammit Ollie!
  6. Clearly they’re following the Twilight Sparkle playbook- you either die a villain, or live long enough to become a bestie.
  7. That episode is honestly my favorite take on the Mean Joe Greene Coke commercial.
  8. FWIW, there's another cartoon series called Resistance - I only watched a few episodes back when Season 1 was first airing, but I believe the series has wrapped up at this point. Fair warning though - it's a far different animation style from CW or Rebels that I found jarring at first. But now that CW is done, I'm planning to give it another shot. As for this episode, I don't know if it was quite what I was hoping for in a series finale - I was certainly expecting some kind of epilogue (or two), but I would have preferred seeing Rebels tie ins like Ending with Vader works though. The first story we ever got from this series was Anakin growing to accept the apprentice he never wanted. Here we get the end of that relationship - he has irrevocably lost her now. Otherwise, I feel it's fitting that we got one last escape here from a crashing ship, just like we got one final bridge battle in part 1. Finally, I want to say that this entire concluding arc has been visually stunning - this series really has come a long way.
  9. I must admit, at first I thought this was a little silly - what is she going to do, poke him to death? But then it just kept going, and it was like, damn- she’s going to poke him to death! Props to Grant and Candace for really selling the moment.
  10. With $50,000 pre-tax, no less. Good luck, lady. Realistically, if you show up on Hollywood Blvd in any kind of costume, many if not most people are probably going to assume you're out to hustle tourists for photo ops. Which, hey - it's a living. But still, I imagine it's going to be difficult to attract attention at a place where a lot of your potential clients are getting inundated with similar pitches.
  11. On one hand, I am seeing the promo fairly often during the Battlestar marathon this week. However, A) it’s not like they have much (or anything?) else new to promote right now, and B) Thursday at 11/10pm absolutely feels like a burial spot. We’ll have to see how the rest of the season goes- but I really can’t imagine the network has much hope left for this show.
  12. If you’re not familiar, that’s just crema - the Mexican equivalent of creme fraiche, or a slightly thinner sour cream. Basically, instead of one big blob of sour cream that you might get on chain Mexican food, they’re doing a drizzle of their sauce. Personally I think their food- and plating- looks really good, but ymmv.
  13. Time to see if anyone’s watching the same reruns as me... Malarkey’s wearing that hat because it makes him look “street.”
  14. To quote the Simpsons: “short answer yes, with an if... long answer no, with a but...” I think the “wars” part of Star Wars skews our perspective a bit- a lot of the ships we see are explicitly military, or converted freighters that are used in battle. However, of the few civilian vehicles I can think of- Luke or Bail’s speeders, Ahsoka’s bike, that bus thing that Ani and Padme take in AotC- I don’t recall those having weapons. It is somewhat strange that a cargo ship like the Silver Angel would have guns- iirc, most modern freighters do not. However, Star Wars is lousy with pirates, smugglers, and gangsters- so maybe it’s just a given that any transport ship is going to need to defend itself.
  15. Whelp... we’re only two episodes in, and I’m already annoyed by the smirky “another galaxy- not yours” captions. So it’s not our galaxy, but everyone keeps talking about steakhouses and karaoke? 😒 I get that I’m being pedantic, but it just feels lazy to insist that your show takes place on the far side of the universe, but still pepper the dialogue with quippy earth slang. That being said, the karaoke scene was entertaining, and Starship was a solid choice. I hope that didn’t make too big a dent in the budget- this show feels like it’s scraping by as is. I’ll only say that I think the joke would have played better without the earlier karaoke references.
