  1. I completely forgot Intelligencia was a briefly a real group, so it could be MODOK or the Max Thinker (which could bring Awesome Andy, fitting with the Slott comics they seem to be drawing from), but given the way the show is going I wouldn’t be surprised/kinda hope it’s Red Ghost. I’d love to see the outrage if the MRA guys ended up getting turned into apes.
  2. Werewolf by Night was a surprise screening at Fantastic Fest.
  3. Mr. Immortal being sued by his ex-spouses for support after he faked his death is pretty much exactly the type of shit I want out of this show.
  4. The courtroom stuff isn’t very accurate, but a)this isn’t even close to being the worst courtroom stuff on TV or even superhero stuff (looking at you, The Flash), and b) this is pretty clearly being played for laughs, so personally I give it more leeway than something trying to deal with things seriously and failing miserably (you again, The Flash).
  5. Hat tip to @TheVileOne I’m excited for this.
  6. Sabine’s been cast: https://gizmodo.com/star-wars-rebels-sabine-cast-for-live-action-ahsoka-se-1848092927
  7. I love this stupid show. I hope they keep leaning more into the comic booky legal stuff.
  8. If this is one of the worst episodes, then this will end up being a perfectly fine show. Not great, not bad, just fine. I did think the CGI looked the clunkiest it has yet, with some pretty mechanical movements and some funky lighting, particularly the Wrecking Crew fight. After the credits, I was thinking how I wanted more Titania when I realized we’ll probably get that next week with her presumably being behind the Wrecking Crew.
  9. Apparently the explanation is something along the lines of his arm is healed as Smart Hulk, but not as Banner. So Smart Hulk is healed, Bruce is still healing, I guess similar to She-Hulk being sober and turning into drunk Jen.
  10. Presumably it’s old footage of the fight just now surfacing, and Emil/Jen will have to explain how he got in and out without being noticed, etc… I liked this episode. So far it’s been decent world-building. I was amused by Titania, super-powered influencer. Jen losing via mistrial due to jury prejudice was actually a realistic response to what happened. I wonder if Mephisto is one of Emil’s seven soulmates (in all seriousness, I’m assuming it’s Elaine and the Thunderbolts).
  11. Apparently “people” online are mad Jen was able to control the Hulk side so easily when it took Bruce so long to do so. It seems pretty obvious to me that the No-Prize explanation is that’s because Bruce took the brunt of a full on gamma explosion while Jen just got a couple of drops of gamma-radiated blood mixed with hers. Why would anyone expect the exact same reaction to occur in that instance? In unrelated news, there’s this:
  12. This was apparently originally supposed to be like the sixth or eighth episode, but they thought it would give the audience more emotional connection to Jen to be the first. Everything I’ve read makes it sound like they were really struggling to find the right tone and balance (apparently they even had comic book editor notes that Jen eventually started arguing with at some point of the writing/filming stage).
  13. I read another review on Twitter of the first four episodes that sounded similar to @TheVileOne’s above, so I’ve been more hesitant about this show than any other MCU show this far, especially with the legal aspect. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the first episode. The “You use it. Implied endorsement.” “Don’t lawyer me.” exchange was low key some of the most realistic lawyer banter I think I’ve seen on TV, and the limited firm/courtroom stuff was all fine. A lot of really good sitcoms took a season or so to find the out footing, so I won’t be surprised if this is an uneven season. That’s doubly so if they really did start out writing it as more of a legal drama. I doubt we’ll get my ideal MCU Night Court version of the show, but it has promise so far.
  14. According to the Nexstar CEO, the average age of the CW viewer is 58, so they’re changing their programming to target… the 58 yr olds they’re already attracting?
  15. IIRC, it was created by the creator of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. My daughter never got into it because of change in the animation style from the prior SHG show.
  16. Reboot it and have crooked cops be the ones who killed his bi-racial family.
  17. Barry, finding Caitlyn’s secret lab, where she’s trying to bring back her sister/his teammate: No time to talk about this, I will destroy your lab immediately! Also Barry, upon finding his sworn nemesis, who has constantly manipulated time to make his life miserable, is making a machine capable of creating an evil speedster who can nullify his powers: “Hey, what are you up to? Why are you doing this? Hey you, don’t go in that machine! Ok, I trust you now.”
  18. Oh man, I just got to the Flash episode where after miraculously getting younger by complete lucky fluke, Barry decides to dramatically destroy Caitlyn’s lab after she tells him she’s run tests and simulations and her theory on how to bring back Frost works. No “show me the data,” no “let’s talk about this…”, just let me destroy all of your work and equipment by shooting off a bunch of lightning around your apartment. I’m kind of excited to see just how horribly this goes wrong.
  19. Crazy that taking a tax write off is seen as the way to make the most money back. I would imagine they would at least break even if they released it theatrically.
  20. Saw Legion of Super-Pets with my daughter, and I really should have seen who one of the pets ended up with at the end coming. Spoilered just in case.
  21. I really hate fake trailers & rumor tweets. Just came across a bunch of stuff on Twitter relating to D23 announcements.
