The TV Show Thread

Started watching Banshee. I barely remember a pilot episode where so much happens, it's insane. It's promising, but I have to watch a few more eps. Not sure why but something about the mood of it makes me see it as having a serious and down to earth tone, with morally gray characters, where the fact is, it is very fantastical, complete with a Bond-y villain which happens to have an extremely Bond-y side villain. Oh and there is another main villain as well, because this is quite bonkers at times.
Fun to see Anthony Starr play a different role than Homelander, he is a great leading man here. And completely plausible that every female character in the show wants to bang him (and they frequently do).

I'd argue that homelander and sheriff Hood are quite similar. He's an absolute nutjob in it.
One of my ever favourite series.
And they made just enough episodes to close everything out properly, while it was still an interesting watch and didn't start to drag.

Anyone going to be watching Shogun when it airs?
Not been really excited for a tv show since Game of Thrones so I’m hoping this is going to live up to my expectations.
 
I got excited till I saw a Disney+.
I don't think they have released one good TV series thus far.
Was trying Percy Jackson recently and it's one of the worst things I have seen in the last 5 years. It's baffling how can someone pick such bad actors..
 
True Detective new season anyone..?

What a load of shite... Actually shocked at how bad it was when it finally finished.

You didn’t like any of the Star Wars tv shows?

Isn’t Percy Jackson like a show for teens or something? It’s probably why you didn’t like it lol

I liked Percy Jackson movie. Like Greek mythology. So it's not that. It's just crap.

As for Star Wars - I'm not a fan of the franchise in general, so I can't blame Disney on that.

I too like Greek mythology but can’t say I watched Percy Jackson because it never interested me. I’ve never really found a GREAT Greek mythology movie. I watched clash and wrath of the titans back in the day but I found that to be mediocre.
There’s probably a space for a really amazing Greek mythology tv show with big budget and top actors. I’m still waiting for it.

Well if you don’t like Star Wars then yeah there’s not much else that interests me on Disney apart from Shogun. It’s worth noting that they bought it from FX so it’s not really a Disney created show, which means the hype might actually be real. Guess we shall see

See I'm a little bit pissed off at Disney for this very reason.
Punisher was one of the best shows on Netflix. Very dark, very brutal.
Then Disney came and bought all the Marvel stuff and Netflix had to discontinue it.
And for what? What can Disney ever do with Punisher? Sure as fuck they wouldn't continue the dark and brutal way Netflix had it. So yeah - I'm still very salty about this.

And I agree with you about Greek mythology. There is a lot of potential for some high budget, serious and dark show.

..but Percy the movie was decent.. ;)

I see your point with them still buying up all the IPs they can buy however when Netflix fist came on the scene they literally bought every crappy show they could. In the instance of shogun it will air on Hulu in the US I think, which I’m not sure we have in the uk. So if Disney didn’t buy it then I’m sure some other company would have. At least we get to see it this way (legally)

I just remembered a show I like on Disney and it’s Welcome to Wrexham. That’s been pretty good so far imo. Obviously it’s a reality show but yeah.
