Anybody watching billions?

What the hell was up with the water bottle the northern exposure dude was drinking from in episode 8?

Working on the last few episodes of season 2. Really good. Much more fun that Jessica Jones (which was good too but I got tired of the S1 soryline)

SPOILERS AWAY

I thought JJ was a bit better overall, but do agree it was a bit too stretched out. The Luke Cage ending was entirely expected since the moment she knew who he was, I was yelling at the screen - go buy some fucking earplugs for him.

DD season 2 - Punisher arc was the best part by far; Elektra arc less so; and once ninjas show up it always hits super-cheese. Plus the NYC neighborhood thing is dead as doornails and has been for a long time. Nobody gives a fuck about Hell's Kitchen vs whatever except for if some new restaurant opens there. Most of the old time inhabitants are dying or bought out.

The real problem I think they are having is consistency under the MCU banner. For each "tier" of show they have different realms - DD and JJ are very local; fine, since they are running around being vigilantes in their home areas. Agents of Shield has this problem the most, they need world level threats that aren't serious enough for the main heroes to come in. And nothing the main heroes come in seems to impact anyone on the ground in realistic ways - e.g., Why would JJ have trouble convincing people of David Tennants powers right after an alien invasion?

So, I'm like 4 episodes into Daredevil. Is the big twist that Daredevil/Matt Murdock is actually an agent of the Irish mob? Because I've noticed that every time he raises his voice he seems to develop an accent....

The missus calls this Pirates and Porn.

Pretty average fare with occasional boobs.

I was quite satisfied with The Night Manager finale. I thought it was a very well done series overall.

I actually wasn't 100% pleased with the finale, but I enjoyed the series a lot overall.

Seriously underwhelmed by Daredevil season. So many groan-worthy moments. Just can't get behind the whole zombie-ninja thing. (Maybe I'm just not a comics fan.) Too much harping on Daredevil's "code." (Seriously, how many times could Elektra/Matt and Punisher/Daredevil debate this?) Punisher arc was the most compelling part. Season could have been much better if it were 8-10 episodes.

Daredevil's code is very inconvenient for anyone stuck with him during a fight. I would constantly nag him about it if I were in the same situation.

I do agree with the undead ninja angle. It does nothing for me.

Anyway, anyone watching Vinyl on HBO? It's an entertaining show but a little cliche in my view. However episode 7 ends in a pretty wild note. I'm wondering if people have thoughts on it.

Started watching The Returned and am several eps in. I'll keep watching at this point.

Always turned my nose up at Vikings but gave it a shot Xmas time and got hooked. Been keeping up with the new season, really liking Lagertha. She's my second fave behind Rollo now.
post #434 of 659
Vikings has been very up and down.
post #435 of 659
Yeah the whole Paris escapade wasn't that great to watch at the beginning. Now that Rollo's married seems to be picking up. Beyond tired of Ragnar now.
