    I haven't liked the trailers (is it a trailer if it's TV?) but I am still guardedly hopeful.

    Caught the latest episode of Seal Team this past week, and during the 'previously on' segment, they featured C. Thomas Howell from a couple episodes last season.

    Based on how he looked, short, well groomed hair, and mustache, I can only guess that he was filming these episodes at the same time he was filming The Terror Infamy. Looked exactly the same.

    All of his prior appearances on Seal Team, and on this episode, he's had longer, messier hair and been clean shaven. Except for his appearances at the end of last season.

    I'm just 2 episodes into the final season of Mr. Robot but so far it is extremely disappointing. It's as if they performed a lobotomy on the show's intellect and only left warmed over 24-style insipid cliches.

    Still time to step it up but the trajectory right now is crash and burn.

    Most of last season was that way as well. It really hasnt been clever since season 2 and even half of that was kind of meh. The show seems to be half great and half "uh we need to fill a few more episodes so how can we come up with strange storylines that come out of nowhere and finish with a thud?".

    Agreed.

    We'll always have S1, which was genius, and S2 which was still very strong.

    My fear is this is the way these shows are going to be, now. Legion is going this way, too. (I haven't seen the final season yet please tell me NOTHING!) West World will be another test.

    But in future these shows would work better as extended 12-20 episode miniseries. The true magic is in figuring out what's going on -- the akilter-ness of the world. After that I don't really care how it plays out and everything that reduces ambiguity also reduces my interest.

    Early reviews of Jack Ryan, season 2 are promising. Looking forward to it. (Releases 11/1 on Amazon Prime)

    I did a lot of research on Watchmen and ordered the Graphic Novel to read. I find it interesting that the author and creator of The Watchmen basically got screwed over by DC. DC apparently never expected The Watchmen to sell and when it did they stole it back from him. It's a complex story. Look it up if you're curious.

    Anyway, I had seen the movie and the movie was ok. The Graphic Novel ending is better and the TV show is based on that ending. I'm really curious to see what they do with the TV show ultimately. The premise is the best I've seen since GOT.

    On the one hand, maybe.

    On the other hand, Alan Moore is a spectacular turd.

    The comic book is great. Lots of great artists are turds.

    I was gonna pass on this, cause I thought the movie was dreadful. I bought the graphic novel years ago, and have never read it, but after reading a review of the first episode, I'm gonna catch it on demand. Gonna try to rewatch the movie first, or if failing that, may actually end up reading the book.
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

    Don't watch the movie. Watch this instead.

    Explains the entire graphic novel. Which is better than the movie for setting up the TV show.

    Read the book. While I wasn't a fan of the book-within-a-book gimmick (there's a kid reading a pirate comic, and we as the readers read it along with the kid for a purpose), the rest of it is solid.

    But the pirate comic itself is great, even though the gimmick is a gimmick.

    I loved the book. I have also been told it doesn't have the same impact today because it was so influential it completely changed comics and so now it ironically feels cliche or derivative exactly because it was the source. c.f. 2001, Dracula, almost anything by Poe.

    He didn't get screwed over...he is just a massive tool. He claims every company screws him over. Meanwhile his co-creators never seem to be too upset. (and usual even help) He hates Marvel and DC because they won't bow at his greatness.

    Moore is an awful human being who a friggin pervert and he has a Trump like ego. I learned all about him when I worked at a comic store when he "hated" DC but still created a universe under their banner (ABC) then destroyed it and put out his perv stuff.

    The book was ok...V for Vendetta is way better. He hated DC for that too (and the film) but his artist of course laughed at him for it.

    Yeah, that's what I kind of figured but it's good to hear it now. Amazing how many artists are also *******s.
