    If you had shown me just those LotR cast photos, and asked me to guess the show, I never would have.

    But some of those people are good/okay actors!

    Oh my god, Titans S2E6. The scene where
    Krypto catches a rocket and spins it back around to hit the guy that fired it

    led to me collapsing in tearful laughter, pausing the video while still laughing, then walking outside to contemplate what I had just seen, before returning (and re-watching that scene).

    It's the best superhero scene ever

    Give the person who wrote that scene all the Emmys. And the Logies (the Australian equivalent), I'll allow it.

    - Fixed a bug where the Moon was upside down.
    - Fixed a weird door.

    i woke up early to finish up the circle before pax south, and there is an entire episode where everyone has to choose a rival and start a public beef with them, stating why they deserve to win over them

    this fucking show is perfect

    edit: unfortunately i am off team shooby for good now, @poorochondriac

    For fuck's sake, what a stupid thing. Roasts are juvenile at best and mean-spirited at actually.

    The GF and I decided to try watching that show The Order the other day.

    Before started we talked about how it was supposed to be kinda corny but how if we know that as long as it's fun we can still enjoy the experience.

    And... Holy shit that show is SO BAD.

    Like on every level it's bad. The writing is bad, the characters are bad(ok that's part of writing but still), the acting is bad, the sound design/music is bad.

    We are generally open to watching some kinda dumb stuff for fun but we were both actually laughing trying to get through that show.

    So anyway, that's my review of that.

    I was extremely down on the end of Season 1 (which wasn't even particularly good leading up to that point), and a lot of its issues extend through Season 2

    I do not blame anyone for not continuing the show past the first season

    But the card game in Season 4 is maybe my favorite thing that a magical society would come up with in... all of fiction?

    I loved Magicians season 1, there’s just been so many other shows I’ve watched/caught up on/wanted to watch it dropped to a pile and I haven’t really caught up since. I’ll try to fix that soon

    I read the book and hated it but watched the show anyway, and the show is so, so much better.

    Edit: though one of my friends looks eerily like Quentin and it throws me off in both directions. I'm less down on show Quentin because he looks like my friend, but then I keep expecting my friend to be a lot nerdier and pathetic than he really is.

    also it's important to note that quentin actually has depression

    so all of the mopeyness and shitty decisions and manicness are absolutely realistic things a person would do

    Magicians is one of my favorite current shows on TV.

    And each season has managed to really keep the show going cool places even when I worry it won't.

    It just manages to hit so hard on very serious and real subjects and manages them so well while also being a goofy over the top fantasy show.

    It makes me feel every emotion possible and I really really love it.
