I dont like that the Joker basically has unlimited origin stories. Did he work in a chemical factory, is he the Red Hood, did he care for his mother? Kinda feels like a cop out.

Acting looks superb here tho. I'm sure I'll watch in on that strength alone.

Agree. A villain/superhero needs a good back story where a degree of adversity makes them relatable.

It's why captain marvel gave me the heebie jeebies. They portrayed her struggle and oppression of being female as enough to basically justify superhero status.

Give me Arya stark any day. Now there's a proper bad ass...

Showtime tonight looks like this

8 pm: Action - C+ (meh - I get it, but betting sports not really my thing)
9 pm: Billions - A+
10 pm: The Chi - A

All new episodes,

That'll work.

People need to do a better job of summarizing and recapping things. I wanted to get into the new season of The Chi - so I thought a recap of season 1 would be helpful - but the stuff on Youtube is shit.

I found a lot of summaries of the individual episodes - and they're all like, 20 minutes long. Some are 25. The actual episodes are only ~52 minutes.

To me, that's not summarizing. That's clumsily blabbifying. I wanted a 20 minute long recap for the whole damn season. Just remind me what happened. Gimme the main points. Summarize.


:mudcat:



Hopefully I can find something more useful and practical for Game of Thrones.

Now see that's what I was looking for. They got recaps for GoT - running from 12 to 52 minutes - that cover all seven seasons.

I don't need to know every time someone gave someone else a significant glance. Just tell me what happened.

Here's the one I went with. You gotta deal with some fast talkin' but I found it helpful. Reminderful. Some humor in there. I'm ready!!
