    You’re not joking. I googled Veil of the Force and got: 

    “The rumor comes from the "future ruler of Earth," the Doomcock Overlord DVD YouTube channel...”

    Whenever I see that dude's name pop up, I immediately close the article.  I disliked the sequels quite a bit, but I think Disney just washing their hands of them(like they are kinda already doing) is a million times more likely than a retcon.

  2. I loved this week's episode, and I though the reveal of Court's dad just being some dickhead was well done. I'm starting to wonder if there is a heel turn coming for Mike though. Kid keeps getting shuffled to the background, and Pat is connecting with Court more and more(which she kinda needs right now tbh), and he is clearing resenting it.

    Love this show for digging up obscure characters like SHINING KNIGHT.

  3. Lando is alot like Han Solo for me, in that I'm not really interested in having the curtain pulled back on their backstory. Much of the charm of a character like that, is not knowing if they are bullshitting you, or if it's true.  Those characters need an air of mystery around them. I agree with @Eivion in that I don't want more content on the legacy characters(even though I am excited for Obi-Wan).

  4. I kinda get the feeling that they dig Junior out of the rubble and go full heel with him later.  You are right about the Barb situation, tbh.  I am hoping that Court eventually tells her mom that it was all her idea and that Pat genuinely tried to stop her, but that may not happen.

  5. Stargirl will probably get the Batwoman treatment, and keep the whole season on the CW app for a while. I've been watching the DCU version, though I"m not sure there is any difference at this point, since they are clocking in at 41 minutes.

    They continue to do a great job of making the big scenes matter more, simply by not doing them often. Thought they did a good job in nailing the emotional beats with Harry Jr. I didn't like Barb being ready to go full divorce after one(granted, big) misunderstanding.

    Thought Stargirl had another solid episode this week. The focus on Brainwave Jr. was nice enough along with seeing how his father came by his powers. I am curious when Courtney is finally going to learn to stop jumping ahead with shit and listen to the people around her. I mean while they do need more power I'm not sure how she felt she was going to convince the kid of a person she put in a coma to join her cause.

    It would be a nice twist for a hero to NOT be able to convince bad people to turn good, or do the right thing.  We see the "inspirational speech" all the time, and it would be kinda neat for Court to try it and come up bupkus every time.

  7. I honestly think they went with a new character so they wouldn't be handtied in trying to recast Kate Kane  This way, they can cast whoever they wanted, instead of trying to jump through hoops explaining why Kate is a person of color now.


  8. Why does Pat's kid look and act like a shrunken 36 year old?  I agree that it's been kinda sweet to see them start to trust each other and become a family. I worry about Court's mom though 👀


  9. I think this spells more doom for DCU than anything else. I'd be surprised if the service is around this time next year. I really hope they don't change anything about the show with the move though.

    I'm starting on Stargirl (watching the 4th episode now) and while I dig all the hero and villain stuff, I really hope they dial it back with the high school mean girl bullshit. That stuff just makes me hit the fast forward button. 

    As far as I can tell, that part of the story is really limited, and only towards Yolanda's story.  I like that it gives her her own little personal demon to overcome.


  11. I love that Stargirl is doing such a slow burn on everything. Really taking it's time to establish the story and characters, instead of beating you over the head with action every week.  Good job on making the villains seem really scary and not making you think they'll be pushovers.

    A neat thing I noticed is that the hero characters, outside of Courtney, have pretty rotten families, whereas the villain characters(mostly) have pretty strong family lives at home. Just a unique twist that I dig.

  12. Everyone absolutely SHOULD play Horizon Zero Dawn. You can get the game of the year edition for under $20 and there is absolutely no reason not to. It's in my personal top 10 of all time. Such great world building, and a truly emotional story when you piece everything together. I literally yelped with glee at the Horizon II trailer.

    I hope Stray is like Uncharted but with cats.

    Me after I finally find out how much this damn machine costs...

  13. Stargirl is finding it's footing pretty quickly. Liked this week's episode, and I dug the swerve of Yolanda's shitbag family not forgiving her, because I hope it leads to her fighting to gain her own approval, versus seeking theirs. Never thought I'd see an episode of a Berlanti superhero show with zero action scenes, but I dug it.

  14. I popped huge just seeing Sisqo's name in the opening credits, tbh. I never thought they'd top that incredible "Return of the Mack" fight scene, but holy shit the one in the finale was amazing. The shake weights had me dying.
