I started reading the Wiki summary of the comic book but jesus I didn't realize there was so. Much. Plot. I had read like four of the first arc descriptions before realizing my scrollbar was tiny and I had like sixteen arcs left to go. :doge Bailed out at that point.

Seems like a neat enough premise, but I wonder how long a superhero send-up can go on before it merely becomes the thing it was originally sending-up. Like, would The Boys still have its bitingly-satirical edge if it goes on for 10 seasons?
Oh shit, I thought the Invincible Compendium I have which was huge was the whole thing.

Just looked it up and it's only issues #1-47 out of #144.

Yeah, if this show adaptation is successful this thing is going to go on for years, will definitely just jump on the comic after this season and see if it sticks.
if they are adapting straight there's two separate time skips in there too, and it's not a few months time skip like The Walking Dead did, and one of them doesn't even apply to the main character

Shameless (2011, Showtime)

Anyone else watching this? Next Sunday is the final episode. The latter half of the show is rocky as fuck, but I'm in it til the end for these characters.

I hope Emmy Rossum cameos next episode. Total waste otherwise.

I probably will when UK Netflix shows it, but I assume its on its last legs like the UK version was at this point in time.
I'd figure she would, or at least the producers will be trying to get her back, as the UK one got everyone back for the finale.

Prime tells me shows are leaving all the time, but when it comes to the date they get renewed.  On prime at least it just seems like a weird automation artifact that the end used accidentally gets to see.

Yeah. Pretty much every platform tries to obscure and downplay it I think, outside some "leaving soon" emails I get from Max. I think Netflix has a "leaving soon" category too maybe?

Most of the time you only get a picture of what's leaving from third-party blogs. :/

I've got no beef getting nickel and dimed by every major IP holder now that they've decided they have to individually paywall their properties in order to remain culturally relevant and financially solvent(accessibility and time are what people should value, not an optional $6/month that you can easily dip in and out of IMO) but at least have the brains/balls to have accurate "recently added" and "leaving soon" pages. Criterion Channel is the only one that actually gets it 99% right. HBO is halfway there(they publish a nearly complete press release usually a week before the start of the month but their in-app "New" and "Leaving Soon" pages are incomplete). Hulu sucks. Netflix doesn't even bother and killed the API that was able to be scraped years ago.

As it is I've got to use a hit or miss Letterboxd list that's pretty good considering it's just some dude manually editing it.

Ahhhh so that's what happened. Yeah everyone is trying to be as cagey and private with their data now, lot of people on Deadline et al lamenting the lack of public numbers coming out of streaming in general.

Being an analytics company with at least slightly-accurate numbers on streaming viewership will likely be big business if it isn't already. Everyone needs a quote for their press release.

How is the UK version? Always been curious.

Very good, I think the US version even has the same "show runner" (as you guys call it).
It was a pretty smooth transition from UK -> US, although the US one is a bit more Fiona focussed (she ran off with the car thief JAMES MCAVOY in the UK version and it just stayed an ensemble thing)

Netflix doesn't even bother and killed the API that was able to be scraped years ago.

Any help?

I like both versions, though as said above, the UK version was also clearly running out of gas by the end of its run and were giving screen time to or introducing new characters no one really cared about.  The US and UK versions first seasons are pretty similar, but then the storylines/characters become pretty different.  Like in the UK version, Debbie is pretty level-headed and doesn't get involved in the family's antics for the most part.  She actually becomes the defacto parent in the house after Fiona leaves after the first season.

I finished The Wire a little while ago and it was fantastic.

I followed it up with Oz, which was also very good despite a limp ending.

Looks like everyone wants a slice of The Boys success.

Speaking of which, got a few more episodes of Invincible in and I still like it, even though it's way more "teen drama" than I usually care for.

I started The Serpent.

A new Netflix thing about a french serial killer in Bangkok chased by a Dutch embassy worker based on a true story.
It is more interesting than it sounds but the time skips are a bit overbearing. Every other scene it says "3 months later", "8 months earlier", "3 weeks ago" etc. .

Still the story and characters are compelling and the 70's/80's Bangkok setting is well executed.

It seems the same take, more or less, we've seen already?
"What if Superheroes behaved like """"regular people""""?" Obviously through a satirical lense so warped, that they behave like cartoon versions of normal people, so mostly defeating the purpose.
At least The Boys feels like an outright (dark/edgy) comedy, when it isn't trying to be sentimental.

I've only seen a couple of pages of the comic, but the trailer looks like it has a lot of clichè lines, bad costumes, worse wigs, and then devolves in the usual action set pieces you've seen a million times.
I don't think making Superman a drunk and WonderWoman a vapid socialite (or whatever they're doing) is in itself an idea revolutionary enough at this point.

The problem with these "real" superheroes takes, is that they are barely removed from classic superhero material, in terms of tone and content.
It'd be interesting to have a "Superman is real" take, but with a really dry, realistic approach: No music, no battles, no melodrama, no costumes, no colorful characters.
The idea of a super-being existing can have social and political ramifications that'd be fun to explore, and you can argue Watchmen comes closer to that than others, but still paints with a very larger than life, colorful brush.

Invincible was good again this week. Someone was saying the show is covering ~10 issues an episode, which seems insane? That's like 100+pages per ep and the 144 issue entire series would only take like 2 seasons since season 1 is 8 episodes.

Well, will read the comic after ep8 at the end of the month and see for myself.

Its interesting how they're adapting it, because yeah they are super accelerating some stuff, but they're also dragging some other stuff out, as well as throwing in new stuff - like that whole try outs to be in the guardians scene basically happened off camera in the comics, and his trip to mars happens after the-big-thing-I-assume-will-be-the-season-finale with his dad in the comics.

When TV has burned through every cliche and trope there is in comics on screen, then we can get the Alan Moore super fucking meta Supreme run adaptation though

The Korean War episode in the middle was very good but I remember being thrown off by him doing some war crimes shit. It was totally in-line with the typical Cable TV antihero(Tony Soprano/Walter White/Vic Mackey) but aside from this one specific instance the guy is portrayed as virtuous and sympathetic and the disparity is never really addressed?

In any case, I was pretty disappointed by the show aside from that episode and a BTTF-like time paradox episode later on but I heard a very good interview with the showrunner a week or two ago and it sounded like she was trying her best so hopefully the show can rebound if they do a second season.

The latter is more what the comic is about, the families and the "legacy" (of the title) being how the second generation and third generation grows up in the shadow of these superhumans who were also supposedly perfect morally and who uplifted the world to greater heights. If children are always trying to best their parents how can you best your dad being Superman who also brought world peace and all kinds of new technology and etc. The superhero identities and fights are examined initially as the toll they take on the later generations who never asked to be part of some big lifelong superhero/villain battle with Lex Luthor or whatever. It's closer thematically to Morrison's The Just than it is to something like The Boys or whatever else "superheroes but real" trope, it doesn't even exist in that kind of world IIRC, it's a standard comic world.

No idea at all how much of that is being adapted into the TV series of course. The trailer does touch on some of the stuff, without too much context, that related to those themes in the comic but they may just be blindly recreating scenes or whatever too.

When TV has burned through every cliche and trope there is in comics on screen, then we can get the Alan Moore super fucking meta Supreme run adaptation though
Oh, well, in that case...

Falcon is really dumb but entertaining. The antagonist group and Sam’s dilemma are pretty weak, but Zemo is good and US Agent is alright. The Wakanda team fight was good action this ep.

I kinda feel instead of Black Panther 2 given Bossman’s passing, a Wakanda show about the side characters would be a better direction for now. Build up someone to take on the mantle.

One of the best and most consistently excellent TV shows i've watched.
Should've destroyed Game of Thrones in the ratings, but people like turds.

I'm happy it got to finish its story arc properly, for the most part (even though the final part felt a bit rushed), unlike ROME.

Finished it.  Enjoyed the book more.  Generally, I let adaptations stand on their own, and don't really try to compare them, but this made a lot of changes that didn't make any sense to the characters.  It also got deep into CW territory with everyone have a new secret to cause drama every episode.  Still enjoyed it but the first 4 episodes are a lot stronger than the last 6.

Yeah, I still haven't read the book but I thought Lovecraft Country TV was pretty bad. It started strong and the Korea ep was good, but by the end it was such a mess. The general consensus I heard when it was airing was that the book was way better and they basically went their own way with the show.

I liked Creepshow S2E2 - mostly because of how dumb it was, but ya it wasn't a great episode.

The first story was good, but the second story was just like pointless. Pesticide guy has an acid trip and nothing makes much sense, but that's ok because the devil. The end.

Shameless US series finale

Some good moments but man feels like a lot of missed opportunities. I was 90% sure they'd do a full-circle thing with the burning car intro speech from the pilot and I wasn't wrong.

Weird not gonna have this to "rely" on, been in my life for years and has a lot of nostalgia for a certain period of my life. Even though the show was barely worth watching after Fiona left, I still counted on it "being there..."

I was a bit buzzed so William H. Macy's final speech got to me, not gonna lie. And above all else I suppose, I'm happy Ian and Mickey got (and kept) their happy ending. That means a lot to a gay guy with no expectation for one. :'(

I watched two episodes of Invincible out curiosity.
I'm not sure wtf is going on in this show.
On a 40 minutes episode (too long, btw) you have 35 min of what is essentially your run of the mill teenage drama cartoon, slightly aged up in some aspects.
And then they close it off with these Rick&Morty-style, comically gory fight scenes.  :lol

Tbh the normal part of the show is mostly uninteresting (also the characters are so generic, i don't understand if they're supposed to be parodies or not?) but the splatter fests are pretty fun to watch.
Maybe i should just look up a compilation of those.  :thinking

Me too.
I watched ep2 exactly for those last 2 minutes, but then ep2 followed the same formula (more or less) and left me confused as to what the point they're going for.
Is the teen stuff supposed to be ironic? Again, the use of violence is kind of comical (like i said, kind of like a Rick & Morty type show) but then the drama seems to be trying to be played straight?

Ok, dropped it in the middle of ep3, when they had the Justice League try out or whatever.
I just can't with this humor.  :stahp

I'm enjoying season 2 of Solar Opposites though, this show in better than Rick&Morty tbh, same base humor, but it doesn't have the shitty "depressed Rick" moments and the annoying euphoric™ smugness.

I enjoyed Falcon again.  Liked that so much of this episode was downtime.  The fight scene at the start was really impressive.

Not sure I liked Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Madam Hydra though.

That's true, but still, putting all those eggs into one basket? I guess they paid so much for the rights, that they HAD to go all in.
Personally i would've preferred to have 3 medium sized new shows, than a single gigantic one, especially since it can still be ruined by shitty writing (as the Game of Thrones later seasons demonstrated).

But at least it's spent on a world that kind of demands a high budget (fantasy epic) and not something completely cretin as to de-age Robert Deniro and Al Pacino.
