APRIL 2018 TV DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

The series finale of Scandal was kinda underwhelming.  It was good wrestling booking as the right people went over and there was one huge twist that I did not expect, but I still felt that something was missing. 

I think part of the problem was that the episode length was only an hour.  I think that it deserved a two hour send-off to make it feel special, but that probably couldn't have happened as it really felt like Shonda had finally run out of ideas.

"Limited run" until it wins a shitload of awards and becomes one of the most popular shows on the network and then they squeeze additional seasons out of it.

Rainere sounds like a real life super villain. How did he gain this sort of control? Does he have mental powers or does he excrete a pheromone? 

I'll never understand how some dudes can convince women to join a sex trafficking cult, but I can't convince a woman that she really does look good in those jeans.

It's funny how the Sharp Objects trailer served as a diversion AND a warning for the thread

Only if they are courted by Ed Helms and Jason Sudeikis.

I was watching those videos trying to find something extraordinary in him. Guys like Jim Jones have some charisma about them. Where you can imagine people following him. 

This guy just seems like some dweeb.

I'm sorry, but please refer to him but his proper name, Vanguard.

Based on this news, Vince will rename Vanguard One to just "One."

At least for a few weeks and then once this has died down it can just go back to being Vanguard One.

She was brought into the main DC books in 2010, but I'm not sure she survived the reboots of the past decade

I wonder who she will rat out when she testifies for the prosecution?

Considering her level of involvement, it has to be Raniere. I don't think they'd cut her a deal to testify against anyone lower in the hierarchy.

She could also offer to testify against the other actresses so that prosecution has ammo to try to flip them as well.

That could force them to cut their own deals to stay out of jail.  At this point bad publicity is a given, so no sense in taking a deal in order to avoid humiliation.

If you want to build a slam dunk case, you can't have too many witnesses.

I'm genuinely shocked that the media hasn't brought up the "super Man Curse" in all this. Mind you, Mack never played Superman but usually the media lovesplaying up curse angles when it comes actors in well known franchises involved in scandal/Death/tragedy
