  1. Riverdale: Discussion Thread

    I saw this and thought that it was a C+ pilot at best and didn't deserve the label critically acclaimed. I seriously have no idea what the critics saw in this other than a desperate need for a non-supernatural teen show or they lowered their standards for this type of show. Did Berlanti see the Funny or Die Edgy Archie and not get the joke or did he just want to have an alternate universe Archie fanfic come to life? I had my problems with it, but there was enough good for me see if it improves.
  2. The networks don't have the luxury of making shows with "artistic vision", they have to deal with advertisers and FCC standards. The shows that do end up getting hype, can never sustain itself past the first couple of seasons because the concept is limited or the show burns through so much plot it runs out of steam. If Stranger Things was on NBC, the show would have to be watched on a weekly basis instead of binging, it would at minimum have a 13 episode season instead 8, and it would have commercials in it. The ridiculous scheduling is mainly to deal with sporting events and award shows that break up the rhythm of a season. I will say this, I don't think the networks should just rely on nielsen ratings. They should use nielsen ratings, Live +3, and online viewers to determine the success of show, like Fox did with Scream Queens.
  3. Supergirl: Discussion Thread

    He looks good when he's in solo shots, but when he's next to Mehcad Brooks he looks tiny. It looks strange seeing a Superman who can get his assed kicked by Jimmy(or James) Olsen. He still looks too young, no amount of saying Kryptonians age slower than human will make me say otherwise. I'm still baffled that he was giving this role without having to audition for it, Tyler Hoechlin is not that good of an actor.
  4. Teen Wolf

    This list seems like utter bullshit to me. If there was a spinoff in the works we would have heard something from a more well known publication. The Beacon Hills one would have just been TW season 7. In all fairness to Sprayberry, Posey isn't the best actor either, especially in season 1. In fact, outside of maybe of DOB, none of the main cast are the best actors, but they were fortunate to get good writing, which Sprayberry won't get. They probably think fans were confused by the story because they weren't smart enough to get their writing as opposed to it making no sense. I'm still annoyed by how they handled the bezerkers and La Loba legends. It's to believe things will be simpler when they have a nazi werewolf, the wild hunt, and the storyline is going to be nonlinear. Corey really didn't get that much development, especially considered to other love interest Hayden. His relationship with Mason happened pretty fast. I'm okay with Corey not acknowledging Scott as the hero of everything, because he gets way more credit for things than he deserves. I think Corey will be loyal to Scott because that's what happens to everyone after a while. Apparently Theo's getting a redemption arc, so ugh. Did you hear Posey "coming out" and the drama that came out of it.
  5. Teen Wolf

    What spinoff would that be? The only ones I think they'd do would be with Kira, but Mtv made it clear they wanted nothing to do with Arden. Or would it be with the Argents in the past? I might even assume a Liam spinoff, but Sprayberry has looked done with this show since he got there (or he may just be his natural expression). I agree about seasons 1 and 2, but I think season 3a is where they tried to be darker and edgier but fell apart at the end. I thought the fanbase had more of obsession with Cody/Theo than the show itself did. Season 6 seems like it will have the same problems as seasons 3-5, in that they try to do too much. Corey and Mason may get more screentime, but their development isn't really any better especially Corey who just screams token.
  6. Teen Wolf

    I never thought I'd say this,but good. The first two seasons were the best, then 3 and 4 were pretty flawed but had enough to be enjoyable, and season 5(5b in particular) was just terrible, with little to enjoy about the season. If Liam had not insufferable in season 5 and if I didn't hate his love interest, I would have been open to seeing him and Mason as the new leads. Even Sterek stans are glad they never became canon, because romances have always been one this show's Achilles heel. The was they handled the Sterek fandom got out of hand, but that's the pitfalls of pandering to a certain section of your fandom. Now and days it seems that shows that are dependent on fandoms (sci-fi, fantasy, teen shows) like to portray their casts as one big family so fans can gush over them on tumblr and other social media sites. I'm sure someone will do a tell all book about the shenanigans that happened on this show.
  7. Teen Wolf

    Actually a vast majority of Hoechlin's stans are gay men and women in their mid 20s to early 30s. Sterek was probably the best thing to happen to his career. While his TW audition was awful apparently he got cast because the casting directors noticed he had chemistry with Posey and Obrien. I'm putting my response in the TW thread because I didn't want to crowd the Supergirl thread with Hoechlin talk.
  8. Supergirl: Discussion Thread

    Oh God, the Hoechlin stans are already annoying me so I shudder to think what will happen when this airs. I fully expect to see manips of Superman!Hoechlin with Dylan O'brien as Louis. The powers that be seem to be high( a little to high if you ask me) on him. Allegedly he didn't have to audition for the role. http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/supergirl-tyler-hoechlin-superman-season-2-the-cw-1201796796/
  9. MacGyver: Discussion Thread

    Apparently they're retooling the show from the original pilot. http://deadline.com/2016/06/macgyver-james-wan-direct-pilot-episode-reboot-new-concept-cbs-1201774326/
  10. Supergirl: Discussion Thread

    It's funny that he got cast as Superman since most people always fancast him as Batman. He looks (and is) younger than the guy who plays James, so that's going to be a little strange.
  11. Supergirl: Discussion Thread

    that was last year, a lot can change in a year The CW renewed every show this year, even Legends of Tomorrow which was suppose to be so expensive that people thought it might last a season. If they do move to the CW they would probably recast or get rid of Cat Grant.
  12. Teen Wolf

    It's funny that Sterek became the huge slash ship because I thought there was more sexual tension with Derek/Jackson than there was with Sterek. Other than that Derek never came across as someone who would have interest in men, tbh he came across as more asexual than anything else. Apparently Jeff said he left hints that Stiles might be bi, but that never came to fruition. It might have been for the best because there would have been hissy fits if Stiles was bi and they didn't do Sterek. Back to Colton, good for him for coming out. Like Carl said, this was basically like an open secret, except to me since my gaydar is horrible.
  13. Supergirl: Discussion Thread

    http://www.thewrap.com/supergirl-renewal-drama-talks-center-on-possible-jump-to-cw-budget-cuts-exclusive/ This show might move to the CW like some of you want, but the budget would be cut in half.
  14. Teen Wolf

    I'm kinda shocked Joey or Hunter haven't popped up on Teen Wolf yet. Allegedly Cody Christian was suppose to be on season 6 but than he wasn't. Somepeople speculated it could have been budget reasons. I liked Tracey because she reminded me of a female Isaac. Sorry for the quotes thing, I was trying to get a single quote instead of the nesting quotes.
  15. Teen Wolf

    Theo would have been better off being in a separate season because at the end of it all he and his chimera pack were such a filler villains and a waste time. It seems like the only reason we got the chimeras is so they could introduce Corey and Hayden and neither one of them is worth all that hassle. This season illustrated the pacing and plotting issues this show has. Sprayberry has his flaws (he can't do intimidating all that well and less said about the Layden stuff) but he does okay for the most part. If he had season 1 or 2 quality writing he wouldn't be any worse than Tyler Posey was back than. It's been less homoerotic since season 4. Speaking of Jeff Davis and his hard ons. Ever since season 5, all new male characters look like each other or like another person on the show.
