    Anybody watched Legion?

    It is a complete mindfuck. It's like taking LSD, drinking a six-pack of cheap beer, and then watching Scanners.

    I watched it for a while and then dropped it midway through the second season. What started as trippy and cool became weird and boring.

    Did I order myself an Eagle Fang Karate shirt?

    Why yes I did.

    Just started Season Two. I can see where it would be difficult to maintain the tone of the first season.

    I swear this is the 50th teaser for this show. Feels a little much. :pound:

    It's like 30 minutes and episode so we've probably already scene the entire first one in collective teasers.

    Seems like a good time to renew my rant against less than full hour episodes for these shows.

    At least some of them will be 6 one hour episodes at least.

    We get two tomorrow, so that's kinda like an hour.

    Yesterday's teaser said "dreaming" rather than "streaming." This, after an earlier trailer was set to "Daydream Believer." They're really driving that point home with their unsubtle subtlety.

    Sounds like each episode is going to be progressively screwier leading up to a big reveal...and undoubtedly setting the stage for the Dr. Strange sequel.

    I just hope the shit isn't completely hokie. It's going to be pretty hokie. The trailers confirmed as much. That's fine, provided it also delivers on the implied fuckeduptitude.

    I'm looking forward to it. Actually my daughter is really looking forward to it which is part of the fun.

    Gonna be interesting to see how it goes over with the kid audience though.

    The b&w sitcom stuff is going straight over their heads. The family friendly mindfucking should be fun for all ages, though.

    I'm honestly impressed by the apparent lack of leaks, or the containment of any leaks. Marvel is really on their shit.

    There's an article from one of the Mandalorian regulars talking about all the stuff they have to do to prevent leaks. They only get scripts that they actually are in, have to wear robes on the set, etc. Mandalorian didn't have leaks so much as things were pretty easy to guess based on casting. And a much more rabid fan base that scours the internet 24 hours a day for clues.

    A bunch of mediots, small-timers at that, have already seen the first three episodes of WV. I haven't even seen a screenshot of any of them. It's a new day, I suppose.

    You don't fuck with Disney. They have everything that's on your daughters cloud and aren't afraid to make her famous.

    I read a tweet (can't remember who) saying that if you decide to make a sex tape, you should have Disney songs playing in the background. That way if it gets leaked or hacked, Disney's lawyers will make sure it gets scrubbed from the Internet.
