Don't mention TWD in casual conversation like that. I collapse to the floor in tears screaming out the names of the dead.

io9's brilliant review of last night's Gotham pretty much covers everything that's wrong with the show:

Or, if their theory is correct about the show actually being in the Batman '66 universe, maybe everything about the show is right!

Man, have we just skipped over the Supergirl TV show?

Confession: For reasons I can't articulate, Supergirl's outfit makes me feel funny in weird places.

I've been actively avoiding it.

Things I realized during the Gotham hiatus: The only reason I started to get into the final episodes before the break was because I was suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.

You and everyone else, apparently. And I'm hearing nothing but good... So I may do the same.

I don't know about Daredevil. The first episode was fun, but the second episode was dull. Dull enough that I gave up my marathon plans and moved on today.

It's weird... It has the tone and feel of 70s and 80s Superhero TV. Like Incredible Hulk. But, of course, it has the demands of the 2015 narrative style. Somehow, the two do not go together.

I think the main problem is that we're in prologue country. My fear is that this is 13 hours of prologue. Which is fine, I suppose...

I don't know. Is it superhero saturation perhaps?

I gave up on it. When he tortured a guy in the second episode using the trigeminal nerve (and then introduced this as a regular technique) I actually had a panic attack. Like a full blown PTSD meltdown. Crying, sweating, shaking, my heart beating a mile a minute, incapacitated...as he slowly drives the knife into the upper trigeminal and the bad guy screams bloody, shrieking murder.

Fuck Daredevil.

I got two episodes in and it didn't grab me.  I may try for a third but it's on my chopping block.

Film school friends are telling me the Daredevil action scenes are a throwback to pre-Bourne detailed fight choreography. Despite Nacho's TN PTSD, I'm still planning on giving it a whirl.... someday.
