Alright, since I was able to sleep through the night, a question about The Boys-
Did season 2 get a bigger budget? Because it felt much more gory than season 1. I mean, gory for shock value at times. And I was familiar enough with the comic, though I haven't read it, and Garth Ennis, to know it would go to dark places, but ...geez.
Although the 3 supe-ladies kicking Nazi ass was pretty cathartic. I'm still having issues that Kimiko is Glimmer from She-Ra. Thank goodness she doesn't talk.
Two seasons max and done. You know the rules.Funny how they could magically come up with a budget for this and not The Tick.
And if he's playing Soldier Boy he's gonna get "ah fuck"ed!I just finished Season 2 of The Boys myself, tonight.
I think my only real disappointment in it is how much of the plot was driven by stupidity. X happened because Y did a dumb thing, and also because if X didn't happen, the plot wouldn't move along.
Also, while I remember finishing Season 1 and thinking "holy shit!" this time it was more a feeling of "aw, fuck."
But hey, I hear Jenson Ackles is going to be in season 3...
The Dexter finale was the worst hour of dramatic TV I've ever watched. None of the spoilers were right, they would have been hilarious. This finale was a nonsensical cowardly mess. It was so terrible, it made every previous episode of Dexter, right back to the beginning, complete trash by association. If you can watch the finale of Dexter and still call yourself a fan of the show, you objectively have bad taste and should probably have your kids taken away.
It was the worst finale to an hourly dramatic series ever. I fucking dare someone to find worse.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the equivalent of having your eyes pried open Clockwork Orange style and being forced to watch unending Kardashian shows and 10 being the tv equivalent of representations (of your sex or gender of choice) of All Good Things (the Star Trek TNG finale) and The Shield finale doing all the filthy things you've ever wanted to you, the last episode of Dexter gets negative 129 quadrillion. I swear to God there is no hyperbole in this last sentence.
Seriously, you know what's even worse than the lazy God awful writing, acting and everything else? They couldn't even keep details from the previous 2 episodes straight. 2 episodes before this, Dexter's son (the worst child actor to ever live) had stitches on his chin in one of the silliest scenes ever filmed (there's a gif of it 1 or 2 pages back in this thread, it's hilarious). In the previous episode and in the finale, they didn't even fucking bother to put a bandage on his chin. He Wolverine healed. I'm kidding, this isn't actually worse than how bad the finale was.
I went and found the gif for you. It's still hilarious.
Holy fuck, the finale has defender.
I'd have an easier time empathizing with a pedophile than understanding these people.
YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT WORD MEANS!

At long last, my wish has been granted.I'm glad Dexter existed. I watched season 2 and enjoyed it but never really watched more. And now I'm getting these entertaining posts from frank. I hope they decide to tack on another season.
We use all 3 on a near-daily basis in our house, but YMMV. If you're thinking of cutting the cord, Hulu's pretty good for keeping up with network shows and ESPN seems to have a lot of past content as well. (Li'l Z likes to watch old F1 and Indy car races every chance we will let him.)I am thinking of getting Disney+, is Hulu and ESPN worth getting for the extra $6?
I'll echo this, with the cavet that The Mandalorian starts back up in a week or two and it'll have Soul, the new release from Pixar, on the service come Christmas.I find Disney to be kinda meh. Hulu is pretty rocking IMHO.
