Well, you know, Blackleaf, I mean, you wanna sell a TV show, you gotta, you gotta pump the gas a little.  Pedal to the metal, Blackleaf.

I decided to check out Invincible because my twin is really into it and half my youtube feed is breakdowns/discussions about it.  The first half of the first episode is pretty week imo, stuff you've probably seen a million times before.  That second half, though...

So everyone, do yourself a favor and watch the premier episode all the way through cause it gets really interesting towards the end.  The second episode definitely got me hooked.

(and put subtitles on because jeez, some of those people talk fast.  Like the Micromachines guy but they also do that Hollywood whispertalk thing that drives me up the wall.  Thankfully, they stop doing that after the premier)

Our tastes have diverged somewhat, but there's still a lot of common interest.  It used to be mostly me ferreting out the latest and greatest for him.  Now it mostly goes the other way, with him telling me to watch shows he likes but rarely reciprocating.  It's odd, because a lot of my recommendations are extremely similar to stuff he already likes.  For example, he loves Kick-Ass and Invincible, but won't touch The Boys.  /le sigh

You are pretty good that following games and tv shows. It's not just that. When you like something, you really put your head on it passionately and analyse it; follow it for years if it got old bad or not. I know that because I do the same thing. Sometimes that could be overwhelming for a sibling, twin or not. Esp. if that doesn't come to him as naturally as it comes to you. Then usually, they don't show any interest. Sometimes they watch, read...sometimes they don't. But it is not really about the show. Just an idea.

I do but I also will stop recommending it after a decline in quality and will stop watching myself if it gets truly awful, though I do have a tendency to see the story through to its conclusion regardless of quality.

I even stopped watching TWD cold turkey after a particularly poor episode (in season 10, a reasonable person might consider that a few years too late lol) and couldn't get into the spinoffs, despite a strong effort to get into them.  I used to be all about GoT, but season 5 gave me pause and season 6 had me shaken, though I naively expected a big payoff.  Knowing what I know now, I won't recommend it at all.

So I get into things, but I try not to become so enamored that it can do no wrong.

When I do find something good, I implore people to just check out the first couple of episodes to see if it's for them or not, so I don't waste too much of their time.  I won't ask people to sit through a bad first season in the hopes of a good second season.

Sweetie, look above. Most people wouldn't go on into the second paragraph. I would, and then some. So agreed. But people don't like it. Family just endures and tolerates it.

Agreed. I'm with you. But a normal person just says: 'I've seen this show and I liked it'.

If we are not going to talk about these then what?! :lol:

Just finished Invincible.

Now I need to take an antiemetic and go lie down for a while and stare at the ceiling for hours (or days) while contemplating the fragility of mortality and the vicissitudes of life.  Maybe sit in the shower for a bit.  That sounds nice.

We rewatched chernobyl.

Jared Harris brings a very relatable and sympathetic leading role.
But the man who steals the show, for me, has to be Stellan Skarsgard as Boris Shcherbina.

The entire show really is a masterpiece. And anyone who hasn't yet watched, I don't just recommend it. I implore you to watch it.
