It'll be one review by a neckbeard upset with some minor detail they got 'wrong'.


No, I think everybody sort of hates it.


3/5 from Empire

These reviews are all based on the first 6 episodes too, maybe its just a slow starting thing.

Every Marvel Netflix show starts off good and gets worse as it goes along so if Iron Fist can't even start well...

Considering all of their shows so far have been the opposite, I'm not feeling optimistic. Though they usually have a decent final episode or two. I can't for the life of me understand why they don't stick to 8 episode seasons for these Marvel shows. There's nowhere near enough material for 13 episodes in any of the series' so far. The upcoming Defenders is 8 episodes at least.

Catching up with The Expanse season 2 and I just watched 205. My god, that was an outstanding episode of television. Up there with the best sci-fi I've seen. The visuals, holy hell. :shock: Thomas Jane is so strawberry floating good.

\o/ I'm surprised they haven't renewed it for season 3 as well though. I thought the plan was to film 2 and 3 back to back.

A Big Bang Theory prequel called Young Sheldon has been confirmed to start later this year.

It's been created by Chuck Lorre and Steve Molaro, the executive producers behind the original show.

Young Sheldon will star Iain Armitage as a nine-year-old Sheldon Cooper, one of the main characters in the hit show.

Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon, will narrate the new show as the adult Sheldon.

I've found it to be quite boring and predictable so far. I was hoping with it being a whole new cast that they'd throw in a few curveballs like when Spooks killed off one of the main characters in the second episode, but it's just been like a dull season of 24.

Watching the latest episode I couldn't help but be reminded of all the great characters in previous seasons (Jack Bauer, David Palmer, Sherry Palmer, George Mason, Nina Myers, Charles Logan, Bill Buchanan, Michelle Dessler, Kate Warner, Chase Edmunds). Nobody in this season even comes close to any of those. If Kim was in this season then she'd actually be the most interesting character, which is really saying something.

Yeah I mean it's perfectly competent but it's missing something. Even when original 24 was in a rough patch Kiefer managed to elevate the material.

Today's episode was disappointing,I was expecting greater crazier things from Tony than some kind of roving torturer for hire. Admittedly it was somewhat amusing that when they fall back on that old 24 torture trope they get in an original 24 character.

Scream season 3 might be dropping the entire cast and story arc:

The upcoming 6-episode third season of MTV’s series Scream will be hitting the reset button. I hear that the network and producing company, Dimension TV, are looking to reboot the show, based on the hit teen movie franchise, with a new storyline and new cast.


Good thing there weren't any unresolved storylines.
