Family Guy (1999) S19 E19

Am I crazy to think the closing joke’s a nod to Family Guy porn? Anyway, ‘m still laughing….

Alice in Wonderland (2010)
mikebcarguy 2 points 9 days ago.

I love Alice…the quintessential strong woman. And, I loved seeing this again. After seeing, “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” it’s so fun seeing how it dovetails with that later film!

Happy for John…!

Final Space (2018) S3 E5

Good use of music and story to build tension, reminiscent of, “Interstellar.” Fav quote Quin asking: “What’s wrong?” (That’s when I died).

El Cid (2020) S1 E5

I really enjoyed this mini-series. Had to pause & rewind far too many times to comprehend the sub-titles, but it didn’t phase me one bit. I always had a clear idea of what and why I was watching: the building & make-up of a champion who had historical significance. I may not be able to read books about, or actually interact with the different Peoples of Spain beyond what I see in movies, and speeches by Professor Richard Wolff about Worker Self-directed Enterprises, but I do enjoy feeling like I am connected to them at some deep level (as with all my fellow Earthlings), and learning about this chapter in their history strengthens that bond in my mind.

There were some touching moments in this episode around Chester and his Dad.

Now that Kate is confirmed dead can we get on with the original plot..

mikebcarguy 4 points 1 month ago. (Contains Spoilers)

The Black Mask and Enigma believe the disfigured woman in that cell is Kate Kane. I’m with you, but the writers have chosen another direction. Kind of spits in the face of all the grieving some of us have done, at three different points in this season….fuuuuuk

Family Guy (1999) S19 E15

Like to see an, “American Dad,” and “Drawn Together,” cross-over…with Lois, Francine & Hailey Smith, Foxxy Love and Princess Clara, “fund raising.”

Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021)
mikebcarguy 0 points 1 month ago. (Contains Spoilers)

Zack did have an unfair advantage, I mean he had seen the theatrical release, so he knew what he had to beat. This I say because it is better in every way — then again, I watched only an hour a day (and waited several for the last).
I know his vision was mostly formed beforehand, but I gotta think some of the SFX were thought up more recently.
Emotionally it’s very satisfying, though Superman going dark in Batman’s dream…well, I hope that stays in the alternate universe (or just his paranoid nightmares). I’ve seen the animated movie where the Joker travels to another dimension where he died after killing Lois Lane, and that’s too horrific to contemplate).

wtf just happened

Yeah…I’ll watch it, but I don’t think I’ll like it…. Fock

Solar Opposites (2020) S2 E1
mikebcarguy 1 points 1 month ago.

So cool it’s back! Hey, why does it feel good to think Jesse sounds like Louise Belcher? (Mary Mack and Kristen Schaal can’t sound alike, do they?)

South Park (1997) S24 Special

Meh, or should I say oy vey?

Resident Alien (2021) S1 E6

Open, open, open… (from a Mervyn’s commercial, just cuz no links yet)

New Amsterdam (2008) S1 E1
mikebcarguy 1 points 2 months ago.

This reminds me of a TV show…hahaha
Good romance/drama/crime show — that keeps getting remade every few years.
Glad to find it again!

The Watch (2021) S1 E7
mikebcarguy 2 points 3 months ago*.

Nice little ditty by death….

And that kiss! I hope there’s another, so he’ll remember it.

Also nice that Angua’s opening up about warming up to Carrot. Everybody’s gettin’ the feelys…Carcer conflicted by Alt-Sam. (What a kick to see Alt-Carcer as a nice guy!)

Hope that’s oblique enough to not be spoilers!

Harrow (2018) S1 E1
mikebcarguy 1 points 3 months ago.

I just recently finished (loving), “Forever,” with this guy and Judd Hirsch (Rieger from, “Taxi”).
This may lack the whimsy of immortality, but it has even more room for emotional reactions…. Still, pathologist then, pathologist now — eh, works for me — I’m glad my Mom turned me onto this, and two seasons in the can…cool!

Final Space (2018) S2 E13
mikebcarguy 6 points 3 months ago.

That ending was very satisfying emotionally…kind of like when Gary was finally able to get cookies.

Ghosts (2019) S2 E2

What a punchline…ah, physical comedy!

Resident Alien (2021) S1 E1

Delightful

WandaVision (2021) S1 E4
mikebcarguy 3 points 3 months ago. (Contains Spoilers)

Fav quote: “What? I’m invested!”
I’ve shed a tear pretty often, and, just like the show’s “audience” I feel an, “Awww!” whenever they kiss.
I’m sure everyone here can admit (and, obv Wanda agrees): Wanda & Vision’s love story ended too soon! Frickin tragedy in the truest sense.

WandaVision (2021) S1 E1
mikebcarguy 2 points 3 months ago.

I think she misses him SO much she brought him back to life…and, I don’t think this is just in her head.

I loved their love story. It was cut too short. When and how Vision died effected me as much as Kristen Ritter’s death in, “Breaking Bad,” (still not over either one).

Every kiss the couple share is a reprieve. Wanda is powerful…I just hope whatever tweaks to reality she makes continue to be guided by love!

WandaVision (2021) S1 E1
mikebcarguy 2 points 3 months ago.

I urge People to think with their hearts and not their heads. Remember Wanda was grief stricken when Vision was killed. Remember her abilities hadn’t stopped developing. Now, remember the Wandavision commercials made it seem as though she’d brought him back from the dead, almost as if in an alternate universe…?
I won’t pretend to know comic book lore, I don;t know these characters’ comic book back-stories, BUT, I know Wanda & Vision’s story together was cut short, and one of those on-screen deaths I don’t think I’ve recovered from. I’m inclined to trust this show for quite a while longer…call me simple, but every on-screen kiss between the couple is an emotional pay-off for me and their were quite a few in this episode!

Hamilton's Pharmacopeia (2016) S3 E2
mikebcarguy 2 points 3 months ago.

Enjoyable…. And, everything I’d hoped, “Breaking Bad,” would be.

America's Hidden Stories (2019) S1 E1
mikebcarguy 3 points 3 months ago.

Disappointed they didn’t mention ergotism (theory published in Science magazine, 1976).
Also, it’s now understood that in medieval times, “witches,” were just People who liked to get high on hallucinogens…instead of ingesting them, which would lead to intestinal distress, they applied a homemade ointment onto a broomstick and, “rode,” it, or placed it under an armpit, so the concoction was absorbed. (This bit of history is not necessarily relevant to the ergot fungus infestation, or the Salem Witch Trials, but it is relevant to the Puritan’s mind-set at the time, as they knew many People in Europe had been executed after being accused of witchcraft — they were just to hillbilly to understand it was just straight People hating on Stoners).

American Gods (2017) S2 E8
mikebcarguy 1 points 3 months ago*.

Been a while…glad I watched this again before moving on to S03, but from someone else’s comment that both Shadow’s parents were gods I think I missed something (I gotta research this before moving on).
:(
Edit: I see from reading online I did not miss something, and it’s still unsure whether they’ll follow the book about this point. whew!

Yeah, it’s just meant as a primer for newbies to the mcu to get them caught up before Wandavision next week.

mikebcarguy 1 points 4 months ago.

cool, cool, cool…thx
(I am jonesing for new MCU content!)
I’ll move along, bide my time.

A Discovery of Witches (2018) S2 E1

I have…so missed this romance.

Marvel Studios: Legends (2021) S1 E1

Was disappointed there’re no links, BUT, two People on Trakt wrote they were disappointed after watching it…. And, then I noticed the eight minute run-time of each episode. I’m okay now…hehe

Top Secret Videos (2020) S1 E6
mikebcarguy 2 points 4 months ago.

Because, “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” would be better with three actual comedians commentating….
I’ve been reminiscing about, “The Comedians of Comedy.” This thirty minute show’s given me my Brian Posehn fix…and, it included that hot Karen from, “Heroes.”
No, I’m not funny, that’s just my truth.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018)
mikebcarguy 1 points 4 months ago.

I really enjoyed this ep.
“A Discovery of Witches,” and, “American Gods,” are back soon, too.

Doctor Who (2005) S12 Special
mikebcarguy 1 points 4 months ago.

Very satisfying emotionally. But, I’m a sucker for that sort of thing.

Star Trek: Discovery (2017) S3 E12
mikebcarguy 4 points 4 months ago.

The emotional impact of that closing scene is greatly enhanced by having watched, “Ephraim & Dot,” which is a video short from the, “Short Treks,” series.

Fuckin’A — Sword fights…chivalry…intrigue! I’m lovin’ this.

Star Trek: Discovery (2017) S3 E10
mikebcarguy 2 points 4 months ago.

Right after I stopped crying, well, the last time I cried, I realized the Doomcock army would not be so satisfied.
But, really, when has good Science Fiction NOT been about relationships? Sure they may not dwell, wallow, whatever, as much, but for a loss such as this loud noise is due. Do you respect the funeral with keening, or quiet bowed head?

Lost in Space (2018) S2 E5
mikebcarguy 1 points 4 months ago.

Nice character development…lots of emotional content learning, or seeing the relationship between Judy and her adopted father as she grew up.

El Cid (2020) S1 E1
mikebcarguy 1 points 4 months ago.

Upstream link is English subbed. I really enjoyed this. Having watched, “Naruto Shipuden,” and, having enjoyed it’s message about protecting the King as subtext for protecting the children, as those who will continue and move the society forward, this struck a chord with that. And, looking up the definition of, “vassel,” I saw it was different from, “fealty.” I recommend this show, and looking up those two terms.
I probably wouldn’t have watched this, except that the one review on IMDb I read wrote that they were completely hooked, and recommended not paying attention to the other reviewers who were caught in a quagmire of political and religious differences. Hahaha
So, even if you don’t find meaning in Ruiz’s inner turmoil, if you ever enjoyed, “King Arthur,” movies you can probably enjoy this. (And, hey, “King Arthur,” wasn’t even a real person they now know.)
Don’t let it get you down if you have to pause and rewind to follow along. It’s not a complicated story, but it is worth understanding why the boy’s father was killed.

This looks interesting - waiting for some links with subs, my Castilian is rusty

All right, Joan, way to go! (referring to her last line)

Smells like, “24,” without any Jack Bauer.

As arrogant as Sherlock’s Father’s comment was, I am strangely hopeful and overjoyed even that he will make good on his claim.

The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973)
mikebcarguy 1 points 5 months ago.

Raylan gave this book to his co-worker, Tim Gutterson at the end of, “Justified.” He said, “If I tolld you I’d read it ten times, I’d be low.”
People on IMDB rate this movie well, even compared to the book, but it just seems to lack something at the end…guess I’ll have to read the book to “Grok” what the writers of Justified wanted to pass on…unless it was simply to say he reads at least one book outside college.

His Dark Materials (2019) S2 E3

The new file size feature is brilliant!

Supernatural (2005) S15 Special
mikebcarguy 2 points 5 months ago.

Well, that’s three episodes to tie it all up…each from a different angle.

I definitely got caught in the cross-fire, and this has been very satisfying emotionally!

Lovecraft Country (2020) S1 E6
mikebcarguy 1 points 6 months ago.

I used to watch, “Naruto.” His character was fused with a nine tailed fox, so, same, but different. (I’m guessing Kumiho is a much older story.)
This was very satisfying emotionally!

Grimm (2011) S6 E13
mikebcarguy 1 points 6 months ago.

That last minute or so…and, I’m crying again! Very satisfying emotionally!

Star Trek: Discovery (2017) S3 E3
mikebcarguy 3 points 6 months ago.

I am feeling it, sorry to anyone who is not! When they convened beneath that tree I really expected to see a hologram of Boothby, the caretaker-slash-mentor of Picard!

That is the same place, isn’t it?

Justified (2010) S6 E7
mikebcarguy 1 points 6 months ago*.

This is the best episode for a long time, from an emotional standpoint…I mean, sure, there’s been poetic dialog, but…emotional engagement? Perhaps that’s JUST subjective, but I think not…I believe it’s crafted!

With ALL of the interaction between Raylan and Winona, and the latter interaction between Eva and Boyd, this is a much more engaging episode than many before it. I was thinking, up until this episode, what a disservice it was watching these last several or, rather, dozen-or-so episodes, without really, “feeling it.” Well, I’m finally able to, once again, invest myself emotionally, and really engage, at that level. Makes all the difference in how much one can truly enjoy a TV show, don’t you think?

As a side note: This brings back memories…of how clueless I was, as a new parent…and, regrets, like how much I want it to do over again…’cuz I know I could do better! (Just talkin’ about the child care scene).
