  1. Yeah, the opening result was the right kind of surprise booking. Both look good coming out of it, even though Page never got going. Loved one bit of Taz commentary when Page went up for the Moonsault, "big mistake! Big mistake!" page hits it beautifully, "awww, not a mistake" Alex Abrahantes is so so good as the hyper little nerd and really adds something to Penta's presentation. Interesting to see Penta break out some power moves, liked it! Where's Chucky T?? I was laughing out loud this morning at Matt Jackson's expression after the dick punch! So good! There's something so sati
  2. Tis also a staple of Irish weddings - who doesn't love the opportunity to shout "fuck" at the top of your voice while in the company of your parents, grandparents, parish priest etc
  3. Well I'm feeling very smug this morning Much like Wandavision, I found myself a little disappointed at the lack of very obvious links to future films/serues. Sure, there's some little hints and teases, but nothing as obvious as a hammer appearing in the desert at the end of Iron Man. But that's just me, and hasn't ruined my enjoyment of the series. I dug the switch to "Captain America and the Winter Soldier" at the end of the credits. Wyatt Russell brought it again this episode, but also impressed by how well handled Sam's talk to the Senators was, they didn't whitewash or g
  4. Glad to see more people join me on the Sharon Power Broker Train (y'know, the old SPBT). I'm not nearly up on my comics enough to know who the Contessa character was, I was just thinking that members of this board would be excited about the Seinfeld connection. Seems they could go a few directions with her, good stuff! Is it just happy coincidence that Sam Wilson is called Sam so that his nephews can constantly refer to him as Uncle Sam as he's umming and aahing over whether to become Captain America?
  5. Hell of an episode with no filler. This is moving along at a right pace now. Zemo stealing scenes left right and centre, delighted for Daniel Bruhl! I have a soft spot for him since Goodbye Lenin. Walker growing out the stubble to reflect his disintegrating mental state was done nice foreshadowing. The Dora Milijae did a real number on him! Was shocked to see Buckys arm just fall off, was wondering if he'd be able to reattach it. I'm sticking to my Sharon is Power Broker theory, no matter how wrong I am
  6. Dunno if any of you have seen Hardy Bucks (mockumentary set in a rural Irish town) but Zemo was giving me real Viper vibes in that scene, "fierce reptilian in his movement", so I just couldn't stop laughing, imagining him as the primary hash dealer between Castletown and Enniscrone Was getting some red flags from Sharon in this episode, any chance she's the power broker?? I know they like to switch things up in the MCU.
  7. Tony had a great line to the effect of, "I'm having flashbacks to the 90s with a houseful of annoying brats", parent of the year, Tony Schiavone! Arcade Anarchy was great, big smiles here for all of it. Love unhinged Miro shouting, "Charles! Charles!" and Trent looked main event ready in returning. They actually got me interested in something QT Marshall is doing, kudos! Felt for Ogogo with the cuff though. Nice call back going hard on Big Shotty though! Nice opener, but Christian needs a better finisher, the Kill switch looks like crap in setup, real suspension of belief required.
  8. I suppose it depends on where you're from, some can see borders as a way of keeping them and theirs together, whereas on the island I'm from the border is a 100 year old wound that shows no signs of healing.
  9. After episode 2,i'm fully behind the Flag Smashers! Hell yeah, a world without borders sounds great! Not letting the same small group of people control the planet sounds great. Maybe I misunderstood, but it sounded like they were bringing medicine to refugee camps? Great bunch of lads! Can't get a fix on John Walker yet, he seems like a relatively OK dude, I imagine we've only seen phase 1 of his origin so far though, maybe his pal Battlestar gets killed and that causes a snap. Is John Walker a super soldier at this point? If not, how the hell was he hanging with Morgenthau et al?
  10. That show just breezed by. I've said it before but the fact that storylines don't exist in vacuums in AEW fills my heart with joy. That main rocked, loved it all except for the weird Sting coming to even the odds when those loveable goofs at ringside were only offering encouragement to John, there was no shenanigans! Hell yeah to a Kenny Omega - Brandon Cutler mini feud, "give me the mic" No clue what that QT Cody segment was meant to make me feel other than apathy, Cody exists in this weird parallel universe and I don't like it. Roll on Arcade Anarchy, hope we'll get
  11. Sounds like he knew that ridicule is nothing to be scared of
  12. Yeah, I liked that. Much slower pace and more thoughtful than I expected, with some really interesting stuff about the practicalities of being an avenger and what that means in real life. The bank scene was heartbreaking in a way. And I definitely caught the nods to the racism inherent in Financial systems, and that thought about race stuck with me as the "new" Captain America premiered. Think I preferred the Falcon side of this to the Bucky side, but Anthony Mackie is extremely charismatic in the role, so no surprise. My interest about the Flag Smashers is piqued, and I can see some goo
  13. Looking at next week's show, I'm relieved they're going with St. Patrick's day. Obviously, Paddy's day is the correct verbiage. I did fear Tony might stumble into that whole Patty's day nonsense, which is just wrong wrong wrong.
  14. How dare you sir! Hangman with Dark Order is my weekly highlight, the loveable goofs! Feared something bad when the lawnmower almost flipped as page drove away though. So glad someone else spotted this, I was grinning when I noticed it. Fun show, lots of storyline movement, some good in ring action. I'm entertained.
