  • Dude... spoilers. I have an idea about Bullseye, but I’m only halfway through episode 4. (Thanks for confirming what I’m thinking is gonna happen, though.)

    I just wanted to jump back in and mention the “hallway scene” from this year. Bigger and badder than previous years. I love it.

    Also... if Cage is cancelled, that pretty much rules out a Heroes For Hire series. And Defenders 2. Is Netflix purposefully giving these shows up for the supposed Disney streaming channel? Much like Iron Fist... Cage 2 was better than 1. Perhaps these shows will be moved to a different platform. Hopefully. Maybe so. (I need Kristen Ritter in my life at least once a year... so, yeah.)

    • I didn't say one spoiler. It was all over the news and in every preview/review I've read.

      • I haven’t read anything yet. And it just literally came out today, so... that makes it a spoiler.

        • Not really since they confirmed at Comic Con and it's been out there for over a month. The whole excitement of season three for many was because Bullseye was in it.

          Here's a video from May:


          Old news.

          • Don't come in the thread if you don't know who bullseye is basically.

            • Apparently I’m behind in my Marvel Netflix shows news... my bad. But still... the day a show drops, you should probably put some kind of spoiler alert when talking about it. Just to make a good/ halfway decent argument... I read detailed spoilers of Infinity War when it first hit the red carpet a couple days before it came out to the rest of America. Wish I wouldn’t have read/heard things before I went and watched it a couple days after the premier here in the States.

              • If I went into any detail at all I would have put spoiler or just not said anything,but I wrote a sentence. No malicious intent I promise.


                And it’s possible the Disney streaming service is playing a role in the cancellations. Maybe they want to do a Heroes for Hire show on their service.

                • I get why companies are doing it but always feared that because of Netflix success, we'd see countless other services pop up... pretty much forcing people to chose. its annoying.

                  • AMC even has a pay app now. Basically the only "benefit" I see is watching Walking Dead with no commercials. Yay.

                      • So far Daredevil season 3 is good. I'm on episode 5 and the only negative is the filler. 13 episodes is too long. They really haven't gotten anywhere yet. Yes, some things are happening, but in general, they are playing a really slow burn. Cut 3 episodes and you can speed things up.

                        • We must’ve watched different episodes. I don’t think there’s been any filler other than maybe Karen and her boss arguing.

                          • The series is too long. I am not saying it is not good, but there is a lot of "get to the damn point" already with me. Not nearly as much as The Walking Dead does on a every damn minute of the show, but there is filler.

                            • No offense, but I’m starting to think maybe television shows aren’t for you. You seem like you want an entire story told start to finish in a sub-two hour sitting.

                              • No, not at all. I really like the shows, but when you extend a show for the sake of "making 13 episodes" is not beneficial. I really liked that Iron Fist was 10 episodes it severely cut down on non necessary filler. Game of Thrones, was 10 eps per season and there was NO filler. But when you have to fill another 3 hours worth of programming, you need filler crap. Defenders, was 6 episodes and that was all it needed.

                                To the contrary of your point. I think that every book (any genre) that they decide to make into a movie, is done incorrectly with the exception of the last book/movie in a series, they split into two movies. Take the Harry Potter franchise for instance. When they make the movies they leave out basically almost everything that happens in school (the first half of the books) and much of the conflict during the second half. Why? To condense into a 2 hour 20 minute movie. Stupid.

                                My idea has always been that when ANY book is made a movie, should be made into a two part movie, and film them both at the same time, like they did with the LOTR trilogy. Then release Part 1 around Memorial Day and Part 2 around Thanksgiving or Christmas. This way you do not have to leave out pertinent details and much of the book. Make "one long" 4-4.5 hour movie rather than a 2 hour 15 minute movie that leaves the reader saying What the Fuck? That didn't happen, or that is not what happened in the book.

                                Finally, against your point, I am a fan of the extended edition director's cut of the LOTR trilogy. Where each movie had about 30 minutes added to it to make much more sense. The original released films are excellent, but the extended editions which add 1.5 hours worth of movies are much, much better.

                                To quote women, length is not the issue, it's the motion of the ocean. If you can make a show that does not have unnecessary filler then I'm all for it, but you do not need to extend a series for the sake of it.
