    I just finished the first season and I loved it.

    EDIT: I dunno why I thought episode 6 was the end (probably because of how it finished) but turns out there are still some episodes left! great.

    Invincible. A Robert Kirkman (Walking Dead writer) TV adaptation of his The Boys-esque superhero comic.

    First episode plays out brilliantly as a standard coming of age hero story full of the regular tropes. Then the last scene shows its hand...

    I was curious about how deep the story was [Invincible], so I glanced over the summary of the comics and wow, they have a lot of material ground to cover.

    Currently rewatching the expanse season 5 in HDR.

    The look of the screens changes a ton compared to sdr.

    Those indoor areas in space? Yep they are darker than outdoors on earth!

    Those neons in space ships? Yep they are bright, so bright, some of them even makes it harder to look at the actor face. As some scenes deliberately put their face really close to neon lights. A really clever subtleties (e.g. To convey that the characters are confused) that lost its impact in sdr.

    In sdr indoors and earth outdoors didn't have this "brightness gap". So you can't really feel what Bobby felt when she first steps on earth without sunshade (other crews just keeps blabbering it's really bright, please wear sunshades). But I imagine on hdr, you will be able to feel what the Martian feels.


    Lol so glad it's not just me that got fooled

    Have been trying to work my way through American crime story Versace but I can't really get into it. I just don't like any of the characters m too bad because I did like the season about OJ Simpson.

    Have also been watching various things with the wife lately. Sex education is pretty fun. Probably wouldn't watch it by myself but it's something we can watch together and it's actually pretty good. Enjoyed the Queen's Gambit as well and now we started on the Crown. It's too bad the sound mixing isn't great because I often have trouble hearing the voices clearly. For my self I always turn on English subtitles but it's a bit hard for the wife to have everything in English.

    Is there some scenes that got chopped off? Like how the kids suddenly able to find XYZ, and what happen to the ABC that got nabbed by the men in black....

    Couldn't wait for new blu-ray set for Babylon 5, so dusted the old good DVDs and started season 1.
    Still a nice show.

    Tales from the Loop is exactly my kind of stuff. 5/5.
    Another one on Amazon, P.K.Dick's Electric Dreams, is nearly there as well. I'm about halfway through on both.

    It may be a bit slow for some, but perfect for me.
    The setting is close to cliched now, with nostalgic weary little town hosting a parascientific underground research institute, but the atmosphere seems so right.

    Got into an older show I didn’t know about, Person of Interest.

    The machines try to take over but it’s not sci fi Skynet future. It’s the present and AI predicts crimes.

    same creator as Westworld but liked it more than Westworld — no hosts in this one,

    I liked Person of Interest. It just got a bit silly with the woman who could communicate with machines

    Is it possible to discuss this outside RPSC forum?

    While a noble gesture on the behalf of actors maybe, I think associating 'color' with 'voice' in itself is something that should _not_ be emphasized. In a live action film it is understandable to require a stereotypic look for a role. But the actors in most cases are quite different persons compared to the role they are playing. In that sense it is no different to voicing animated films, it should not be expected that the actors are in real life what they portray.
    Is it OK to fake Irish accent then? German, Russian, what have you?

    BTW, I'm several years late but soon completing both Community and GLOW and Alison Brie has won me over totally.

    Ah, I posted about it in the anime (animation) thread. But, this is surprisingly really REALLY good, IMO.

    This is also the reason I absolutely HATE series that don't release all the episodes at once, pure crap, IMO.

    Now, I'll probably just wait until the rest of the season is out before watching it again. Sucks having to wait that long, but better to be able to watch the rest all at once rather than have it drip fed to me a week at a time.

    Anyway, I'm incredibly interested to see where this goes. It's difficult to tell exactly who are the "good" guys and who are the "bad" guys. I know it's setup to make it look like a certain someone is the "bad" guy, but at this point I'm not sure if it's deliberately setting things up like that to mislead the audience into thinking that person is the "bad" guy.

    Really fascinating animated BLOODY superhero series.

    Also, now interested in the comic series that it's based on, but I'll hold off on reading that at least until this season is over so I don't potentially spoil the rest of this season.

    Regards,
    SB
