    Mixed feelings.

    I loved the book, and the movie, but was a bit disappointed with the show, and didn't expect it to receive such universal acclaim.

    Did anyone else check out the new ABC show Deception? In the grand tradition of the Mentalist, a magician goes to work for the FBI to catch criminals and the illusionist who framed his twin brother.

    Now You See Me plus The Prestige plus FX (the film). The lead is a little too annoying, but the supporting cast is full of likeable characters.

    I would say it gets cancelled after one season, but Monk, Psyche, and The Mentalist all lasted forever. And people love magic. Really it’s the only reason I even tried the pilot episode.

    Also Timeless is back after they almost got cancelled. Disjointed first episode, but good to have it back.

    Anyone wanting a similar show should check out El Ministerio del Tiempo on Netflix. It’s from Spain and has subtitles (for those who don’t speak Spanish), but it’s good tv. The episodes are a little lengthy, so be warned.

    Sister's started on Scorpion, based on the Frank Dux-like lies from Walter O'Brien. Sweet Jesus, it's awful. If it was billed as a spoof, I might actually watch it, because I can't take it even remotely seriously.

    When the first season aired, they actually had Walter interviews after each episode (I think) about what really happened. Like the first episode with the airport traffic control issue was less Fast and Furious and more find an overweight dude in a Metallic shirt because he’s probably better at computers than all of you old people and I’ll walk him thru the commands.

    Personally, I like the early episodes. It’s very MacGyver-esque. Paige and Happy are also nice to look at. Cade’s a badass. The science is interesting.

    I usually hate musical numbers, but Under Pressure in The Magicians was fantastic. It's possibly the only time one of these bits has made me feel anything, and it's because the song choice, how it fit into the story, the division of the parts, how the dynamics fit the action perfectly (ffz to pp, slow crescendo back to fff), it was awesome. When they said they had to sing I rolled my eyes, but I was totally into it in ten seconds.

    If you haven't yet, you guys should check out COUNTERPART. It's one, if not, the best drama airing on TV right now. Brilliant series.

    So now there's rumours floating around that Rick and Morty may not even return for season 4. Because Adult Swim hasn't officially picked it up as of yet, and because a guy called out Dan Harmon about it and didn't get a clear answer back.

    I don't really believe this at all, as R&M is probably one of the most hyped up shows nowadays, but still just these rumours makes me nervous. I mean it felt like forever before season 3 even started

    In two minds about Cloak and Dagger, what with Freefrom aiming at an even lower age group than the CW. Any news on New Warriors? I really want to see how the fuck they get Squirrel Girl into a show without it being a train wreck.

    Still no network then. Not a good sign.

    Was Krypton as shitty as the reviews are making it out to be? Certainly doesn't sound too appealing.

    Watched the entirety of the second season of "Into the Badlands" yesterday.

    I want to really love this show and Nick Frost really added to the second season but...

    Quinn dying means the show has essentially lost a good antagonist. I get The Widow is supposed to take over that spot but I can't take an antagonist serious when she's literally stabbed EVERYONE in the back at least once

    Also, the kid playing MK literally ruins every scene he's in. Wooden overacting emotionless motherfucker.
