Gonna have to find a new streaming service.
After more than four years of innovating in the Pay TV industry, we regret to inform you that Sony Interactive Entertainment is discontinuing the PlayStation Vue service on January 30, 2020. We appreciate your support of our pioneering live TV service over this time.

Youtube TV. Works better.

this looks awesome, I can't wait, the books are terrific and this looks like another binge and rewatch series from STARZ

The Devil Next Door is f'ing great.

Welp, I saved $14 and pre-paid for a year of Disney+, which ought to keep the kids happy for a while.

Hope the Mandalorian is good.

Justin Charity: Though I know The Mandalorian isn’t about Boba Fett, I’m curious to see how Disney, following George Lucas in Attack of the Clones, will continue to over-embellish and thus ruin Boba Fett’s mythology with this series.
Baumann: You know what fucking owns? That 10 years ago we had a large subscription service in which All of Television came together to offer every channel at an affordable rate. Then people were like “Wait, I don’t want to pay for things I don’t use” and decided it’d be better to pay for each discrete channel, even though they ended up forking over more money to get less stuff in the long run. That absolutely kicks ass, in my opinion. Very well done by American capitalism.
: Because it’s about a bounty hunter, it should be a story about a character who does heinous things to survive a dangerous, unstable world. Because it’s from Disney, we’re probably going to get a story about a character who gets in trouble because he begins to have second thoughts about doing heinous things.

We're halfway thru season 2 of Jack Ryan, good story arc, enjoying it!

Remember when you were young, broke and pissed off at the world? Well, you're older now.

I know it's a "re-imagining" and all that, but Jack Ryan's character is way off from the books and movies. It's a fine standalone action series, but it's not "Jack Ryan" to me any more.

Can’t make it through the first episode of the new season of peaky blinders. I downloaded it and will try again on my trip this week, but it’s so damned dramatic. Decent/Good music but way overdone. They slow motion walk, vogue, intense dramatic music constantly.

same. I watched like 7 minutes, gave up and have not returned to it.

Well stated. We're viewing it as an action/spy deal rather than anything from the books. What's your take on the most accurate/true movie adapted from any of the Ryan books?

I don't know, it's been so long since I've seen the movies. Definitely not Sum of All Fears though. That was hot garbage. I always hoped they'd make Without Remorse.

They are making Without Remorse and you're going to hate it. Michael B Jordan as Clark.

Jack Ryan 2 was good, and definitely different than the books Jack Ryan. I cant seem to get thru the last (not brand new) season of peaky blinders, its lost me. Watchmen and His Dark Materials is weird, but good (haven’t read books), looking forward to the man in the high castle, and Ray Donovan. Enjoying last season of Poldark

Cool, Mr. Clark is one of my favorite Clancy characters.

So apparently Palpatine somehow returns in the Rise of Skywalker.

I hope they don't fuck that up

Agreed. The second season started out fine but went to shit in the last few episodes. Didn’t Michael bay have a hand in this? Would explain why Jack Ryan is an action hero

I don't know, it could still be good. I'd prefer a period piece (like the novel), but of course Hollywood is going to update it.

One weird part of the article:
If I remember correctly the novel deals with freeing American POWs from a Vietnamese prison camp that is run by, or controlled by, the Soviets.
Huh? That wasn't anything close to the plot of Without Remorse.

It certainly is in flyover land.

1899.evil gator » Tue Nov 12, 2019 4:04 pm

yes, I enjoy getting out of town to flyover land as much as possible to talk to people who do stuff.
