  1. I hope that UE retain their tag team titles, just because "Broserweight" might be the worst tag team name in WWE history. Even The Viking Experience was not as bad. In addition to being plain and simply bad, it reeks of the usual lazy fusion of two identities that WWE does so often nowadays with tag teams. Every time two singles wrestlers form a tag team and the music production team mixes the two themes into one, I want to put something through my eardrum.
  2. That is one of the most ridiculous things they have said in their documentaries. Seriously, why would you (try to) say something like this? Anybody who as around back then, no matter if they were on the internet (or even read dirtsheets) or not, should know the truth about that. For Christ's sake, they had to (or at least did) censor all references to "WWF" when releasing older footage for 10+ years.
  3. ECW supershows, to be precise
  4. Sorry, I did not see your posting. That's what you get from posting at 1:30 AM (local time).
  5. I just realized that this show is only tomorrow. The best thing about NXT shows for us Europeans is, that we can either watch it live without being zombies on work on Monday or can comfortably watch it on Sunday afternoon. Now that they have the shows on Sundays as well, that part of the appeal is gone.

  7. Completely agree with these two statements. They treat Raffi as if she were in TNG and all the movies, someone who knows Picard forever (for much longer than the gap since the last movie, especially considering that the story is that they did not talk to each other since the Mars event). The holograms are a bit weird from a consistency point-of-view. On the one hand the story is that creating androids is hard as no one is able to re-create the positronic matrix (i.e. AI) Data had, on the other hand, the holograms are (from what we have seen in Voyager) way beyond just passing the Turing test. It did not matter in Voyager (or for the lounge singer character in DS9; Moriarty in TNG is more problematic in that regard; I am sure that there were other "sentient" hologram characters in Star Trek over the years as well), as there the AI stuff was just not in focus, but here it is one of the key plot points.
  8. I was watching The Irishman over two sitting yesterday and today. While a (the?) big selling point for this is nostalgia, seeing the greatest mob-movie actors (plus director) one last time together in the roles they were born to do, the movie itself was definitely very good as well. While it did not feel (too) long, the movie did not create too many emotions (except the last 20 minutes and considering that was the endgame of the movie, it probably should have focused more on the family-life of Sheeran in the first 2.5 h) or suspense, though I suppose that was kind of the point of the movie, how emotionally dead the mobsters were, ordering and executing hits without any emotions or remorse (and that is the way they were presented in the movie, quick in, shoot to kill, no dramatic music, cuts or reaction shots, even in the theoretical climax of the movie, Hoffa's assassination). I have never seen any clips or whatever of Hoffa, did he do that Trump-style subclause (is that the correct word) intonations in real life, or is that something Pacino brought in?
  9. Are you trying to say that Barrios and Wilson pissed hot?
  10. This. I still cannot believe that how broken the new app (for PS4 at least) is and continues to be: I had to deactivate auto-play as way too often when doing a bit fast-forward, the app would accidentally jump to the end of the program and start the next show. The "continue watching" bar (I am pretty sure the most important category for many users) sometimes is not even shown at all and usually displays only the last 2-3 shows. If you want to see your full history, you have to go via your personal settings and then you end up in a list that includes all episodes (incl. the ones you have finished watching). The fast-forward thing is just a bad joke. The organization of the content itself used to be a joke, I am not sure if they ever managed to improve that (a quick look on the web-version of the Network tells me that this is still broken).
  11. Is Bud Spencer known at all in the English-speaking part of the world? He was an Italian actor who specialized on spaghetti western and slapstick (extreme slapstick, like in silent films) roles (approx. mit 1960ies to mid 1980ies). His movies (usually with Terrence Hill - also an Italian actor - in the co-lead) are considered cult-classics among my generation (born in the 1970ies and 80ies) in Germany and Austria. In one of his movies (one of the slapstick ones, obviously), he plays a Wrestler in 1920 Chicago and there are some (silly) wrestling scenes (wrestling is treated like a shoot in the movie). It's not an objectively good movie, but if you are into that kind of humor, there are worse ways to spend and evening / weekend afternoon.
  12. (as someone who has not seen a single episode of The Crown) How do you end such a series? In principle you would expect such a series end with the death of the portrayed character, though, obviously, Elizabeth II is alive and kicking. Sure, she might be dead by the time season 5 is done (though considering that her mother passed the 100 year mark and the queen herself looks to be in good shape, I would not bet on that), but even then it would be way too recent that it should be done. Where else could they stop? Lady Diana's death and that fallout of that? That was already done in The Queen (and rather well, I might add). Maybe the death of her mother and sister in 2002 would be another option (though I neither know how close the relation between them in real life was, nor how it is portrayed in the series, i.e. if it would be fitting end).
  13. Belgium banned FIFA points and similar stuff two years ago (it took EA another year to take down FIFA point), so at least according to EU law there is does not seem to be a greyzone here, just no willingness for other EU countries (besides the Netherlands, which also has some restrictions w.r.t. loot boxes) to really do something about this.
  14. So DDT was successful in buying something where WWE failed a couple of months ago?
  15. Currently it feels like every time I press F5 in my tab observing the WWE stock price, VKM loses 10 Mio. bucks.
