Wait. Slivers were bishies???

Not necessarily. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

so now we have shows on abc, netflix and soon freeform. i know netflix has referenced its own shows and the films. have they ever mentioned aos? aos has referenced the films. have they mentioned the netflix shows (i havent really watched since the middle of season 2)? im just curious how interconnected all this will be/remain seeing how its spreading over networks (i.e. they dont mention shows on other networks cause its a different network)

 

im also curious as to just how huge this thing is going to get before it implodes

 

as for the show itself, ive never been a big fan of the characters. but if its on a day i dont work and i remember ill give it a go

None of the movies have referenced the shows. There have been neat little tie ins and lead to's with AoS. No sho has impacted the films, and most references these days are to the NYC attack.

The only AoS reference that I can remember in a Netflix show was the Dogs of Water biker gang in DD S2.

 

AoS made a couple very minor Netflix references; the Hell's Kitchen gang war is seen on a news scrawl, and one of the exploding bullets from Luke Cage was used this season.

 

If this show is going to make any explicit connections at all, it'll likely be through Cloak's connection to the Darkforce (which has powered several bad guys in AoS) and through Roxxon, which bought the Isodyne company that was studying the Darkforce in Agent Carter.

I don't think any of the shows cross networks will make references to shows on other networks, even if two are owned by Disney.

Hulu also has the Runaways pilot on order, so that's another platform.  I suppose the nature of the business makes it difficult, if not impossible, for major crossovers.

 

I've read some C&D comics, and that trailer looks pretty much like them.  But the comics didn't really pull me in, and neither does that trailer.  I'll certainly give the show a few episodes, but so far it's feeling like the first MCU show to not hook me.

No. The Freeform network (along with Squirrel Girl and the New Warriors). Which I believe used to be Disney Family.

Just a small correction, Hulu didn't order a pilot of "Runaways", they went straight to series.

 

...also "Cloak & Dagger" will eventually be on Hulu, just not as a Hulu Original.

At this point, the continuity seems like how RID and Rescue Bots fit into thebl Aligned Continuity Family.

There's a lot of stuff that blatantly doesn't fit together, and the explanation is basically, "Yup."

Which is just like comics. Not everything is always going to fit together 100% all the time, theres always the chance you're gonna have to squint to make things make sense across titles, the result of Multiple writers with their own visions. They might all have a common area to work towards, but can take any path to get there. There is a chance we'll see some 'idea crossover' like Darkforce or Roxxon, or whatever that is easy to explain within show but also still connect to other things without having to be blatant of "This is _____, go watch ____ on ____ to learn more" or something along those lines.

Watched it last night. I like Tyrone more than Tandy of the two.

 

And this show continues a trend that seemingly started and ended with Daredevil and Jessica Jones by having a former Power Ranger in an MCU show: The lady police detective is played by Emma Lahana, who played Kira Ford the Yellow Ranger from Power Rangers Dino Thunder (I almost didn't recognize her at first).

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.
