Just watched the trailer for Netflix’s Witcher series and it looks awesome.

Currently making my way through Adventure Time for the second time. Planning on watching Stranger Things from the beginning next.

Or Veronica Mars since the new season dropped on Hulu

I just hope that they do not make Witcher PC and woke. Which are the rumors I have heard about it.

I have only played the games but they are neither woke or PC.

It’s going to be based off the books, and he is neither woke or PC in the books either.

Also, HBO is doing a Golden compass series?

All I know is when I saw the trailer for Sabrina The Teenage Witch, I thought it looked like it might be good. Having a darker take on the show.

Then in the very first episode Sabrina said something along the lines of, "We need to stop the white hetro patriarchy.", and any interest I had in the show was gone.

I loathe identity politics and I see no need for that sort of stuff to be on shows. To willingly lose members of your audience just because you have an agenda to push is foolish.

I do not want to have to sit through woke nonsense like that and I am afraid they will somehow inject that sort of crap into the Witcher.

Weren't those rumors about The Witcher being woke things like Geralt and Ciri getting a race lift? Because if Henry Cavill isn't white then what is he?

Also, am I the only one getting a Daario Naharis before he was recast vibe from Cavill as Geralt?

Ciri yes. I think most of the flak about Henry Cavill playing Geralt has to do with fans not like the way he looks as Geralt. Also, there are a lot of people who do not like Henry because they do not like how he plays Superman (I am not in this camp. Really the only one of the JLA that I do not like is the guy who plays Flash. The rest were fine with me, hell I might be the only one who did not mind Affleck as Batman).

My thing is the show is going to be PG13, I personally think it is going to be hard to make a Witcher series that is not rated R. Now I understand an R rating might curtail some folks from watching it.

With how Netflix is, I am just worried that they are going to sanitize (By shoehorning far-left political talking points into the show. I myself am a moderate and I hate to see either extreme sides of the political coin forcing their agendas into entertainment.) this show and not make it what it can be. Maybe I am wrong and I hope I am, but I have a feeling I am not.

The Witcher might struggle at first because too many people are comparing it the games which it is not based on. The games play very loose with the source material. The 1st season is based on the short stories before they move on to adapting the novels.

BHK1978, I don't know what the rating will be but it's been described by the showrunner as "a very adult show" but that that any sex or violence will have a purpose and not be for pure shock value.

There is a guy on the current season of Australian Survivor that looks like the real life version of Kenny Powers (or maybe Joe Dirt). I thought mullets were an American thing...I guess not.

Edited to say: Stupid me, I completely forgot about Bono's mullet. Bad hairstyles are not exclusive to America.

Started watching The Umbrella Academy and Dark on Netflix. Both very different and both fantastic so far.

Take your pick. Titans is still set for S2 and Stargirl for S1 but no word on Doom Patrol S2 yet.

I actually live in North Carolina (again) and haven't heard anything on Swamp Thing in the local news.

They managed to wrap up the season reasonably well although they set up a few things for a season 2 that won't come unless the show is resurrected somehow.

Doom Patrol has been confirmed for a 2nd season which is awesome news.

The Umbrella Academy was very enjoyable. I never read the comics, but I was told that the two were vastly different.

Is the Dark the show about the blind woman that aired on the CW here in the States? If so the CW did a piss poor job of promoting that show. They made the lead look like she was a sarcastic jerk and very unlikable in the ads promoting it.

I have to think that someone must have realized that fact because in later commercials for the show they seemed to go out of their way to make her more likable.

I keep seeing things that lead me to believe that the DC streaming service might not be around much longer. The WB/AT&T merger that just happened seems to have a lot of folks worried.

I am just going by what I read on the internet and saw on YouTube so I am not trying to sound like I know exactly what is about to happen. That being said, it seems that AT&T is notoriously known for ending things that are consider money losers or even if they are just slightly profitable.

Many are saying that they might end up closing DC comics and leasing out the rights to their characters to other companies.

Dark is the German sci-fi thriller.

Started my free trial of DCU. Going to see if I can binge Titans, Swamp Thing, and Doom Patrol before it expires.
