Complete Opposite for me. The fact that it was another capeshit show kept me from giving it a chance.

I'm very glad I did though. It has joined my list of bar raising shows of the decade along with:

What do you dislike about it? I'll admit there are some eye rolling moments, especially with the Kerry character, but mainly with her acting. It more than enough makes up for it everywhere else imo.

Are you a fucking pleb-stain?

I dropped this show at the end of the first episode when it seemed like it was just going to be typical genre conspiracy trash and they were running through some shit looking CGI explosion action.

If THIS is what the makers of this show think is "cool" then I know it's not a show worth watching.

>>80693231
I only saw the pilot, but I didn't think it had very high stakes or any kind of interesting future implications. I think the whole "is this a dream or real" motif is a cop-out, and I would ask any fan of the show to ask themselves if there's anything random they could do that wouldn't work. Seems like they can do whatever they want (like OP's webm) and the fans will find some meaning it.

If the Legion pilot had focused more on his relationship with his family and then ended with some kind of threat against his sister or introduction of a major villain, I probably would have been invested more. The creepy yellow-eyed guy didn't actually do anything bad, just stared at him. I enjoyed the weird shit in Fargo because it was grounded in the real lives of characters, especially some of the best villains I've seen on tv.

Also, I generally think the CGI is garbage and the editing was way better in Fargo. This all seems like it has a "we'll figure it out in post" philosophy.

>>80693890
It didn't seem good enough to watch. I'd like to be proven wrong but I doubt it because most of the people who find value in the show presumably were impressed by the pilot. Seems like another show with uninteresting plot and character where you're supposed to be so wowed by the flashy visuals that the flaws don't matter. Except you're not and they do.

I find Fargo to be fairly superficial too but at least that had some enjoyable characters.

To me, it's one of the better uses of X-men. In particular it's focusing on the crazy mind powers aspect that they never seem to get right with characters like Charles and Phoenix.

They just used one of the more obscure characters and a buncha OC that seem similar enough to other ones and one surprise villain character yet to be named but I think we know who it is.

I think the other best use of X-men by Fox was in Deadpool. Deadpool aside, Colossus and teenage goth chick with Cannonball's powers was exactly what I wanted from an X-men team. Even though it was the budget restricted team of two. I think Colossus's character in that was more spot on than most of the cast of the regular films.
>>
Okay so why does the yellow dude now have all this control over him, there didn't appear to be an actual trigger
>>
>>80694179
Pretty sure that is mostly the original song. That's not much of an electronic remix. That's the actual band playing and they just repeat some of it. Might have even been done by the show itself just to shorten it.
>>
>>80694309
Lenny told him they'd have to team up to take down the guys who had his sister, so he let Lenny do that and take over the body, not knowing she was the parasite.

Listening to the original from the original album. The bassy brass sounds pretty unaltered.

David's in the white room
He went into it, which is where all of this is happening.
Yellow eyes/lenny has shown again and again that while David's in his mindscape, lenny has a lot of power.
White room is in the astral plane, and is David's weakness. It's dangerous and lenny is using the comfort it brings him against him.

The Strain really did turn to shit. Worst Master yet.
>>
>>80694556
Ah. I hear the electronic drums more. I was focusing more on the brass, which sounds pretty similar to the original.

Eh. Still better than a number of others, like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrK35KKorM4

Can't find a clip of the original song with footage from the original Thomas Crown Affair sadly.
>>
>>80694616

Yknow what? Even if it was the original (which it clearly isn't wtf your now a master of brass sounds?), it would still be lame because there are millions of tracks they could have picked instead of this incredibly obvious pick that's in every 16 year olds "classy music" Spotify playlist.
So just breathe deep and for once admit to yourself that you are a tastless sperg, and then you can move on forever and improve.

I'm interested in good TV shows and films. Or more honestly I'm here because of habit.

Also the fact that you think you need to watch something or like something to talk about it here is a holdover from the culture of whichever home board you're coming from.

Style

Substance
the quality of being important, valid, or significant

of course it has subject matter you dumb shit. It's that the subject matter is so loose and weak that it may as well be nonexistent. Ergo it has style and no substance. Here's some dictionary to help with your retardation.

the most important or essential part of something; the real or essential meaning:
"the substance of the treaty"
synonyms: meaningfulness · significance · importance · import · validity · foundation · moment
the subject matter of a text, speech, or work of art, especially as contrasted with the form or style in which it is presented.
synonyms: content · subject matter · theme · message · essence

Did it really need to be? She suggested they team up to break out of that astral plane, then showed him a vision of his girlfriend about to be stabbed and riled him up.

As he got angry the face of the Devil with Yellow Eyes was superimposed over her face in red, and there were two quick flashes of David's head trapped behind enormous interlocked fingers all in red, like a monster had it's hands around his head.

They break out of there and at the end you see a ghostly Lenny over his shoulder, and from the beginning of the next episode on David acts differently because she/it is in control now, he's not twitching any more and he's speaking much more calmly and clearly and acting more relaxed and confident.
