    With one episode left, I highly recommend Luke Cage season 2. Much better than the first season. And Bush Master is an awesome villain.

      I liked season one better, as this one tended to drag on at times. Netflix does not need to always make 13 episodes as they could easily condense the series into 10 episodes and then there would be considerable less filler, and more action per episode.

      Take a look at GoT, they had 10 episodes per season, and 8 in the most recent, and each episode was amazing. Short and to the point.

        I daresay Luke Cage season 2 was better than season 1. I thoroughly enjoyed Bushmaster. I loved the character building. Episode 1 was the only bad episode.


        I finally saw Infinity Wars. I loved it. My only major gripe (minus them killing Spidey- fuck that noise) was no Silver Surfer. I had no illusions of him being in it, but he should have been. I still wait patiently for his own movie. They'd be fools not to do one.


        I told a friend before I saw Infinity War that the plot would most likely lead to a parallel universe theme. And after seeing it, they went the way I thought they would. Notice how Dr Strange said things went the way they had to, after Starlord let his emotions screw things up? I'd be willing to bet anything his words seep deeper into Thanos, and it festers. Thanos' love for Gamora will wind up undoing him, and his ambition. What was thought as a mistake, would wind up being the one thing that worked in bringing him down, while all other universes failed from their "successes".

          About halfway through Iron Fist season 2, and it’s ace. Like, DareDevil levels of awesomeness.

            Sorry for the double post, but Iron Fist 2 did exactly that.

              Watched Black Panther last night, and thoroughly enjoyed it; so much so, in fact, I went out and impromptu picked Infinity War up on bluray before immediately sitting down and watching that too. It's still an outstanding achievement, that film. My only criticism is of Banner.

              How Ruffalo and the writers took one of the most tragic, intelligent and game-changing characters in the universe and turned him into some bumbling, hysterical, incapable screaming maniac used exclusively for comic relief and as a plot device, being more annoying than Jar Jar Binks in the process, I don't know. After Ragnarok and IW, I just want Banner to go away the moment he shows up on my screen. Mood killer.

              EDIT: I've got to finish my second run through Breaking Bad before getting to Iron Fist S2, but as someone who actually really enjoyed S1 I'm very much looking forward to it.

                I just rewatched Iron Fist S1 last week (sober this time) to get ready for S2. S1 is actually really good, and much the same way I feel about the Luke Cage series, S2 improves on the good things while finding away to cut out some of the general complaints from S1.

                  Season 1 of Iron Fist is good? What were you guys watching? It was awful, and Finn Jones is terrible. I am in the middle of season 2, and it so much better than season 1, but it still is NOT good.

                  Unlike Luke Cage, most of the show is filler. LCS2 was excellent, but a little too long.

                  The best Iron Fist part was when he showed up in Luke Cage for the 1 episode.

                  The only reason I watch it is for the rest of the other series, Dare Devil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Defenders, and Punisher. They all overlap and reference each other.

                  It is the same reason I still watch Legends of Tomorrow, for the crrossovers, and Arrow, Flash and Supergirl.

                    Yes, season 1 of Iron Fist is good. It’s better than season 1 of Luke Cage, The Defenders and most of Punisher. And maybe even better than some of Jess Jones season 2.

                      Wow, you are the only one who I have ever head that not only liked it, but loved it. Critics and almost all fans hated season 1, and you saying:

                      Really makes me question your taste.

                        It’ll probably really blow your mind when I tell you I liked Andrew Garfield's SpiderMan movies better than Tobey Maguire’s then.

                          Not at all. I thought Garfield was better as Spiderman than Maguire, and The Amazing SpiderMan was pretty good. I hated the way that they changed the narative about Peter's parents, but he was good. 2 was terrible with Jaime Foxx.

                            Garfield was a much better Spiderman than Maguire. The Maguire movies (minus 3) were better movies, than the Amazing Spiderman, but I truly liked Garfield as Spiderman so much better.

                              I had high hopes he would cross over after the Sony/Disney deal, but I’m content with Tom Holland. Something cool would be having all 3 in a movie if they ever did go full on multi-verse.

                                Tom Holland has the truest representation of Spidey/Parker to the comics, but I find that I can't re-watch Homecoming over and over again. Maybe bc I don't like the liberty taken with MJ, and I really do not like Keaton as Vulture. I think Keaton was great, but not as Vulture. Why couldn't they find a skinny, older evil business man to portray Adrian Toomes? There are plenty of actors, and they could shave their heads.

                                I am ok with liberties, and diverging from comics, but not at the heart of the character.

                                Take the Nolanverse.

                                Scarecrow - A psychologust who wants to rule and intimidate by fear.
                                Ra's Al Ghul - an evil criminal mastermind who leads the League of Assassins and wants to cleanse the world
                                Joker - a pschyo-sociopath who only cares about destruction and chaos who doesn't want to kill Batman
                                Two-Face - a fallen good guy DA who was horribly scared causing a separate personality to emerge
                                Bane - biggest change, but a big muscualar guy who wanted to Break the Bat
                                Talia - Daughter of Ra's who falls for Bruce/Batman who ends up wanting to finish her father's purpose in ending Gotham and the Bat

                                If you watch the movies, the characters are tweaked but they are not really removed from who they are. Ra's is not immortal, and there aren't Lazaras Pits. But Toomes is clearly changed.
