GG - I'm looking at Seven Deadly Sins. I saw that you mentioned the second season is much better than the first. Do I need to start with the first or can I jump directly into season 2?

Got to start with the first. There's a few things you need to see before jumping into season 2.

Oh, by the way I'm in the middle of Haunting of Hill House and it's fantastic. Good slow burn horror, but not too slow. And it does a great job of mixing psychological with supernatural. As an added bonus, there's nothing real gory (not yet anyway), which is always a major turn-off for me in horror movies.  I've gone through the first five episodes, and I think I have five more to go, but I definitely give this a recommendation.

Really great show. I won't spoil the ending for you but I would like to know your thoughts on it.

I didn't because it is only on the DC Universe app in the US.

I didn't get that app yet.

On Netflix I'm currently rewatching Parks and Rec.

Next week I plan to watch the movie Polar.

Titans is pretty good although its got a lot of swearing and violence. Seems a touch contrived on that front. But it's good to get away from the whole Arrowverse.

I finished Punisher Season 2. I tuned out a bit because it will probably be canceled just like Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

I'm not going to spoil it.

I did love the final scene where he finally gets a comic accurate suit in the final shot. With the Leather duster and the white skull black shirt.

Just finished up Haunting of Hill House. Overall, I liked it a lot. There's a few things that I would have liked to have seen better wrapped up, and there are still a lot of unanswered questions. However, that's almost a given whenever you deal with any kind of supernatural horror. Anytime you watch a movie or show in that genre and they try to explain everything, they usually end up doing a crappy job in ruining something in the process. So, I will walk away from this feeling very satisfied.

What's unexplained? Maybe we can work it out together.

Have either of you read the book?

How psychoanalytical is the show?

1. Never read the book. Never even knew that existed. I have seen both of the Haunting movies, though those practically had nothing to do with the film and I couldn't tell you which is more closely based on the book.

2. The psychoanalytical question is kind of hard to answer. Each of the characters have an episode devoted to them and it shows how the events that occured at the house affected them and what has carried over as adults.  However, more often than not the viewer is lead to assume that any usual occurances are more likely to be supernatural rather than psychological. So while strange things do happen to them as adults (as well as when they were kids), when something happens you don't really thing "this happened due to trauma and it's reflective of X, Y, and Z." Instead you just go, "ooooh a ghost."

3.  GG, as far as the unanswered questions it's more about the origins. Why do the things that are happening at Hill House happen there? Why that room? And where was all the water coming from that was making black mold?

I never read the book.

Good question on the origins. Wasn't it because there were two crazy people there that went on a killing spree and then their evil spirits haunted the house? Wasn't that room not really, that room. It meant that the other rooms they had all spent time in were essentially that same room, but to each of them they observed it as being different. I think there was a line in the last episode that said that they had all spent time in that room, they just never knew that they did.

Black mould. Wasn't it just ghostly origins, to symbolise the rotting aspect of the house? To show the evilness? Also because of the dead dude in the basement?

I've finished Titans on Netflix, based on Teen Titans.

It's better than any of the DC superheroes movies. It's on par with Daredevil in many ways as a TV series. Batman also appeared in episode 11 and it was really cool.

For anyone who liked Dexter, there is a new show on Netflix you probably need to check out. It's called "You" and it's about a stalker. the whole show is more or less from his perspective, and despite him doing bad things, you end up rooting for him. The show creators completely took the Dexter formula, but since that show has been gone for many years, this is a pretty decent replacement all things considered.

I just watched Polar on Netflix it was great. It's based on the Graphic Novel of the same name by Victor Santos.


It stars Mads Mikkelson as Duncan Vizla "The Black Kaiser" an assassin who is just about to retire.

It is similar to John Wick with some of the action scenes.

Anyone agree that The Good Place is laugh free and one of the worst most boring comedies of all time?

Also, anyone watching The Orville? My God it sucks balls.

Finished The Mist on Netflix, good series that was cancelled.

The book was left open ended so I guess the showrunners were planning a wholly original second series but it never panned out.

Started the Umbrella Academy, a DC comics series and it's pretty good, not as good as Titans but still a good watch. Lush visuals and interesting story so far.

Umbrella Academy isn't DC it is a Darkhorse series.

It is inspired by a DC Comics series; the creator of Umbrella Academy is friends with Grant Morrison and was inspired by Grant Morrison's run on Doom Patrol. He wrote Umbrella Academy when he thought he would never write Doom Patrol. In 2016 DC puts him in charge of his own imprint, Young Animal and he chose to write Doom Patrol.

It was odd that both Doom Patrol on the DC Universe streaming service and Umbrella Academy on Netflix both released on February 15th. Doom Patrol on DC Universe is a spin-off of Titans and will be on Netflix outside of the US sometime after May 25th.

I see, wikipedia misled me.

I haven't heard the name Darkhorse comics since way back when I bought Aliens comics.

Yesterday I watched a few movies on Netflx it was Sunday so I didn't have anything else to do.

I watched Incredibles 2 (It wasn't as good as the first movie), Goon (Which was good it was the second time watching it), Goon Last of the Enforcers (It wasn't as good as the first but still an entertaining movie) and I rewatched Role Models (It is still good. Netflix is removing it next week in the US)
