  1. Maybe it's just me, but Supergirl seemed to be trying really hard to remind you that yes, Superman is still connected to this universe.

    Also, I thought the time travel episode was really cute, and Dreamer singing "9 to 5" was a pleasant surprise.

  2. Didn't it come out months ago that Purcell was leaving the show though. I swear there was a story about that, and it went nowhere. Of course I also heard this was the final season for LoT and there was an about face on that too. So idk what is happening.

  3. Mighty Ducks has been what it is. It's inoffensive, but it's not lighting my world on fire. The reveal of why Bombay became such a grump didn't really land, but I like that it at least had some roots in reality, and it's the sort of thing that I can absolutely see him doing.

    Excited that the next episode is called "Hockey Moms", because if there is one thing that will get Gordon Bombay's attention.....

    Was always a fan of the White Witch storyline from Droids.  Also marked that Stewart Copeland from The Police wrote the theme song.

    I have no idea how Ewoks made it to a Saturday morning cartoon.  I think people forget that those little fuckers were going to roast the heroes over an open fire until Luke used the Force to trick the little buggers into worshiping C3PO, proving that Star Wars has no equivalent to the First Directive from Star Trek.

    I am also convinced that the parties that created the Ace Ventura: Pet Detective cartoon have never watched the Ace Ventura movies.

    I mean, we had cartoons of WAY more kid unfriendly properties lol. Like, yes, we all watched the Police Academy, Rambo and Robocop films as kids, but how they got greenlit for Saturday mornings blows my mind.

  5. So at the end of Supergirl, J'onn puts up the emblem for Sentinal among what I assume are supposed to be the other Paragons from Crisis? Or is it just supposed to represent their makeshift Justice League? I didn't recognize a couple of the symols honestly. Like, I can't tell if Alex replaced Supergirl and the emblem on the left belongs to Superman, or what the deal is.

    Remember this is a series and not a movie, so they have more time for everything to come together. One would think that season 1 is all about them becoming hockey players, they’ll get better every game but lose and then upset the undefeated Ducks in the season finale, season 2 maybe they win the league championship, season 3 they win state and if there’s a season 4 they’ll tangle with Iceland in some sort of International event. 

    I honestly kinda dug it. I like that Gordo still has a thing for single hockey moms. I can see this going the Ted Lasso route, where the team honestly just stinks the entire first season, and it's about them figuring things out. It didn't feel like a blatant nostalgia grab, which is good, and I'm looking forward to finding out what soured Bombay on everything post-D3.

    I watched the first episode of Superman & Lois and started on the second. So far, so good, but have they said whether/when this takes place on Earth 1? Presumably it’s some time in the future due to the kids being in high school, but I wasn’t aware if they had stated as much.

    They haven't explicitly stated, but my theory is that Crisis may have altered something and aged them.

    Speaking of Crisis, I'm wondering if they are going to specifically say if this version of Lex is there because of it, or leave it opened ended. I'm sure this show has lots of viewers who don't follow the larger Arrowverse.Tbh with Supergirl ending, they may never need to address it.

     

    Flash already feels better having closed out the Mirror Master story.

    All amazing stats, thank you. I also read that Marvin Hagler was one of the few fighters who walked away at the right time and never came back. I still haven't watched Marvin Hagler vs. Tommy Hearns. I'll do so. I take it that and vs. Sugar Ray Leonard have to be seen the most? I'm not into boxing as I am MMA but wanted to pay my respects. R.I.P. Marvelous Marvin Hagler. My condolences to his family and friends xxx.

    The Ray Leonard fight is more famous, but Hagler vs Mugabi, Duran, Antuofermo, or Minter are all great fights if you want to see what his skill level was.

  9. As far as OG Wells is concerned, the car accident probably just happened 5 seconds ago. That is certainly a bold angle for them to take, but it seems to me that the show is just going all in on being really effing weird, so whatever.

    "Speed thinking" felt like a borderline jumping the shark moment tbh, so I'm glad it got paid off quickly.

    Superman, of course was great again,but they are doing too many "Jordan lashes out and tells his dad he hates him" moments. I feel like there are two in every episode. I'm glad they got the Stargirl special effects budget too. All of the fights and action set pieces have all looked great.

    I just finished the first season of Rebels, and I think I like it better than Clone Wars, even if I thought Clone Wars was more interesting, if that makes sense.

    I’m early into season 2, and I’m curious to see how Darth Vader is used without completely wiping the floor with the crew.

    I think you'll really like the Vader stuff they do. It really hit hard for me.

  11. Count me in on liking S&L. I was worried it would be too much like Man of Steel in the first 10 minutes, but this ended up having WAY more charm. Most of that has to do with Tyler Hoechlin being a pitch perfect Clark/Superman, but also because it felt really grounded in a good way. Seems like focus will be on the family side of things, with the superhero stuff being a nice compliment.

    Hope we see some of the Supergirl cast make an appearance, as I think Kara would be better at helping the kids understanding things than Clark would.  Also I'm not ready to lose some of those characters. I heard Diggle/Lantern is supposed to pop in at some point too.

  12. Kinda cheating since I was on commentary, but the Trevor Lee/Roy Wilkins 105 minute match.

    Discounting stuff I was on the call for, I'd go

    Eddie Guerrero vs Chris Jericho - Fall Brawl 97

    Also the El Generico- Kevin Steen street fight from Mania weekend in Miami was really fucking good.
