  1. Took 2+ years, but one of the members of the household finally caught COVID. My older brother just gave my dad a rapid test after he felt under the weather the past day or two. Tested positive though the symptoms are mild. Luckily we are all fully vaccinated and boosted so hopefully it doesn't become anything serious for him. Still need get myself and my brother tested.
  2. Thor had been a warrior and hero for thousands of years already. We didn't see his start. We did see Strange take some time to learn magic and have some failures. Carol was already an outer space badass via said wetwork as a soldier. It feels like you are pushing an idea that isn't quite there as much or strong as you think it is.
  3. Sami/Nakamura was good once again though I kind of agree on the odd choice of finish. Viking Raiders back as monster heels would be neat if we actually had face champions for them to terrorize. The handicap match was an odd choice but worked well enough. Shotzi/Tamina was ok I suppose. I assume Aliyah was injured? GUNTHER/Ricochet was a competitive squash but a pretty damn nice one. Drew/Sheamus vs. Usos was good stuff.
  4. How many other heroes have we actually seen get their start? I feel like we usually see some sort of failure in those stories. Feels weird to fault the blooper reel in movies which have much more limited time.
  5. SNW was fun this week. Ending M'Banga's arc with his daughter so soon was surprising but nice to see.
  6. Have to admit it would be fun to see the Kenobi/Krrsantan fight done on screen. Otherwise I also would rather they leave well enough alone.
  7. My dad used to buy those pies all the time in the 90s.
  8. I thought the finale hit all the right character beats with Vader and Obi-wan with the actual fight being pretty damn great as well. That went perfectly to set up their relationship come ANH. The little scenes with Leia were nice and touching as well. Only real weakness for me were the scenes for Reva. They did what they were supposed, but at the same time I can't really say I bought into Reva's redemption. In general I thought the writing failed newer characters. I never found myself caring about them to the extent it felt like we were supposed to. I think they would have been better off using the fourth episode to give more focus on Reva and the rest of the newer cast.
  9. Solo/Waller was solid. Leon/Ferroz vs. Katana/Kayden was nice though it felt weird with Leon not working the power style she had built herself on previously. Legado vs. Strong/Kemp was good fun. Kind of like Strong enraging Kemp as a tactic. Jensen/Wagner was fine. Knowing Jensen's father is Bull Buchanan leaves me confused with Jensen's look and style. Too used to kids pulling bits from their parents. Alba/Lash was surprisingly fun and one o lash's better performances. Tony/Hayes was good. I liked the finish with Santos screwing over Tony.
  10. There was something posted by Kidani either early this month or late last month where they had mostly worked things out. Ibushi wasn't considered for the G1 because he isn't healthy enough yet. Trying to bring him back too early was one of the issues Ibushi had in the first place. He wasn't remotely healthy enough the last time or two they announced a return.
  11. Wow, I did not realize how many belts AEW had running around until I read that first paragraph of Dax/Ospreay. Feels weird that they have around as many as WWE when WWE has that many between 3-4 brands.
  12. I remember that being a rumor, but I don't recall any confirmations one way or the other.
  13. Its sad because I don't think the fault lies with her at all, but her only being around much gives more room in the writing.
  14. This is all accurate. The more mature Vader really isn't around until original trilogy time and even still there are still hang ups that occasionally mess with him like anything to do with Padme.
  15. Kind of feel the same way. The trailer only served to confuse me more as to where we are supposed to be at now.
  16. I feel we can trust Eris's intentions, just not her actual plans. They always feel so terrible as ideas despite working.
  17. And now I got to go check the game now instead of later after eating. Edit: Starting to wonder if it might be a mistake to be keeping the Crown of Sorrows on the Helm.
  18. I thought using Asuka and Becky made sense. It was Liv and Alexa who already are in MITB who I thought should have been switched out for others like Doudrop, Nikki, or Zelina. I'm fine with Carmella winning. She was a good a opponent for Bianca last year. I don't think Dana, Nikki or Alexa would be able to provide as solid-good a match. If they hadn't run Bianca vs. Doudrop so many times during Wrestlemania season she would have been my most preferred opponent.
  19. The 5-way was pretty fun with everyone getting their moments. Was actually kind of nice seeing Corey give a quick explanation of them dropping the dumb mask Carmella was wearing the past year. Omos/Riddle was a decent squash. The bits I caught of AA vs. Lashley seemed nice. I liked Theory losing quick via flash pin. The Owens vs. Elias/Ezekiel bits amused me. Asuka/Becky was good. Glad they actually started off straight up fighting with how the two have been feuding the past 2 months. Was nice to see Asuka win clean and poor Becky breaking down even further.
  20. That is surprising. I thought the Master solo run was supposed to be a near guarantee. i ran a handful of legends and one master to finally get the last two newer hunter arm exotics. Still need to get the Star Eater Scales for legs though my interest in it is more collector based. Hit max power last Tuesday. Spent the next couple of days after running the Nightfalls with no Horror's Least dropping. For the weekend I was playing Trials. I got up to four match wins so far. Doubt I will hit 7 though I want to go far enough to be able to pick up Forgiveness from the rewards list at least. Playing Trials the last couple of week shave annoyed me. The losing will always bother me somewhat, but its more the fact that I'm starting to get used to Last Word. It just feels wrong, especially after the nerfed my much preferred Dead Man's Tale to crap.
  21. Why do you hate Bo Katan? I'd be a little surprise if they felt the need to show Sabine. I assume S3 will be focused on trying to retake/reform Mandalore with Bo either trying to get Din to lead with the Dark Saber.
  22. On the one hand I give him credit for getting into shape like this. On the other, toned WALTER still feels wrong and is somehow less intimidating in the ring. At least until he chops someone.
  23. I just want them to actually sell out those bigger buildings they keep hitting for PPVs.
  24. Everything I have heard about Gotham Knights makes me wonder why is it a thing.
  25. Is his show still happening with the CW sell?
