    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

    Midge is always insufferable - thoughtless and unempathetic. I thought it was going to be a plot point she's so weird. At the same time, the second series doesn't feel as stilted as the first.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Apparently CBS and Netflix had a row over the cost of showing them.
  3. Jason Reitman? So we're getting dramedy Ghostbusters?

    Mary Poppins Returns

    Nope. Your memory is fine. She's 'kind but firm'. Blunt's just mean.
  5. The real question is: what were the idiots who fired Lord and Miller from Solo thinking?

    James Gunn fired for old paedo jokes

    I think Disney would have done a little more research than a knee-jerk reaction. Perhaps Gunn was bugging them already.

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

    I also feel GG is the superior effort, btw. It just clicks in a way Maisel doesn't.
  8. Continues to look great. People still wining about it on the internet.

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

    It's the worst episode by far though. The show is better when it stays on home turf.

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

    I get what you mean - the musical was just too long (a weird attempt at padding mixed with them wanting to pay off Bunheads a bit too, perhaps?) and it would have made far more sense if Kirk had been involved. I could quite believe the Life of Death Club stuff wasn't a dream sequence. Still can't. Also, I hate them. The wedding stuff I felt was earned as the end of the whole story - a more cinematic ending for the Luke and Lorelai story. As for Ms. Maisel, I agree about the character improving but I get chills about the ex-husband hanging around stuff. Christoper Hayden chills.

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

    I don't remember the magical musical stuff. There was an extended cameo to the Bunheads people that I felt didn't fit very well and a weird interjection by the Life or Death Club but that was it. My current feeling is that Maisel, while excellent, is already stalling for time in a style reminisent of GG - keeping characters that should leave, etc.

    James Gunn fired for old paedo jokes

    Just hit me today - how the fuck did Disney let an idiotic internet Nazi and rape-apologist hound Gunn out of developing this property? Absolute madness.

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

    It reminded me massively of Gilmore Girls and then I noticed it's all Amy and Dan Palladino. She has a unique, Preston Sturges way of writing.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    That contradicts itself by saying they collaborated on the story planning and also threw out the script. Also, Luke's demeanour seems to have always been the plan, which was the key thing the auld 'fans' hated.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    But they've admitted that they didn't know what was coming next. I'm not a huge fan of the Abrams "throw out mysteries with no idea of solutions" approach. it never works - didn't;t work for Lost, and didn't know here. It's a terrible storytelling mechanic, lazy and damages the originals as there's no decent answers.
