Finished off S1 of The Boys. That was some dark shit at the end.

Yeah. Just finished this last night. It was OK, not sure I'd sit through another season though.

Have you read the graphic novels? I lost interest in the series after maybe 6 episodes but it breaks my heart a bit that I will never see the ‘War in the Sun’ comic done right. Maybe it’s too epic to be filmed.

Preacher seems to be one of those shows that is great is you are an idiot and know nothing of the original content (i.e. me), and fucking terrible if you do.

It’s just frustrating but early in the series when Tulip fucks Cassidy I realised it was basically a completely different story, so why even call it Preacher? A bit like Akira perhaps it’ll never work with actors anyway.

Yeah one of my mate's biggest gripes was how Cassidy was portrayed cause I think he's a massive joker but I get the impression that's not the case in the graphic novel *small sick in mouth at calling them that*

Preacher series 4.

Its not completely bad, but its no way perfect. Pacing is all weird. Series 1 was great but now I just have to see it through since it's nearly finished.

So many odd threads going on that don't need to exist

I haven't checked it out yet, but while I thought season 3 was really good, the ending of that season has me worried about season 4. It seems like a less interesting setup than his relationship with his grandma and all that.

Binged all of Mindhunters S02 over the last couple of days. I was quite captivated by the Atlanta Child Murders storyline and have to say they got some brilliant performances out of their serial killer subjects (my fav part). Not as brilliant as S01 but still held up p. well in my book.

i tried watching mindhunters season 1 but was too familiar with the BTK killer story to find it interesting. also, i didn't get the point of them going after the guy who killed his brother (with the wife) or whatever- ed kemper and the guy with the shoe fetish storylines. i thought someone those would tie together with the BTK pieces but no. 

atlanta child killer was basically an egotistical liar who hated black kids and police incompetence. not really sure what there is to "get into about that". he mainly got away with a lot of killings because everyone thought it was a white guy doing the murders and could have been linked to the KKK

watched the episode 'harriets happenings': basically mrs olsen starts a gossip column in the local paper that reports on rumors that begin to affects the residents of walnut groove. she's asked to stop making up news but basically responds "but people buy it. besides, it was fact that people were making up those rumors

Agree about not being as good as season 1. I thought one of the best things about season 1 were the scenes with Kemper. Great acting and great tension when he showed up. I also knew practically nothing about any of these serial killers, so it's been interesting learning about some of the real life events.

haven't watched his stand up since he did a show in dc around the time of chappelle show. thought this one was pretty good

I just watched this. I enjoyed it though not as much as some of his last few Netflix specials which I thought were just funnier. I like chill Dave more than aggro Dave, the humour hits better.

the impression he did of Louis CK's shame after cumming on his own stomach had me in fucking stitches.

Yes, there were some good bits with Chappelle. But is it me, or does he pull off a "dick joke" every time his rant could reach a meaningful conclusion?  I know it's a stand-up and it's not meant to be taken serious, but then at least give me some truly good jokes. It seemed to me like he forced quite a few laughs with his own laughing and pacing of delivery - a lot of style, but not so much of substance.

It's not you, that's been his m.o. for a while now. Bring up pussy, dick, or something similarly vulgar early on, and then when things get a little too philosophical, Chekhov's gun goes off.

To me his craftsmanship in constructing real jokes with actual punchlines and such is the least important aspect of his comedy, it's definitely about the ride.

Loved his new special (and its epilogue), in fact all of them have been great. He's having one of the most amazing comebacks ever.

Dood jackie Brown is one groovy movie (been a long time since I last saw it, don't remember enjoying it as much as I did today). Also Preacher S4 is interesting so far though it's obvious they're setting up a good vs bad type scenario instead of simply the opposing forces from previous seasons. Definitely a departure from the comics.

What is interesting about the story to me are the two main characters with them trying to get their ideas out and seeing the one guy ( I can never remember their names) go from somewhat humble to super cocky and embodying some of the traits of the people he's hunting, to where you question how much of a sociopath the guy may be, and whether or not the studying of serial killers has made him lose some empathy. BTK killer really isn't all that prominent in S1 besides a handful of scenes. Haven't seen S2 yet.
