Big dropoff once Mike Judge leaves the show, all around the episode You Gotta Believe (In Moderation). Decent premise, completely botched execution.

Gave up at this point, can't be bothered with this kind of pretentious bullshit.

The official explanation via newsweek is that he filmed it that way intending it to be on imax. 4:3 = 1.33:1 which is close to imax film 1.4:1, although most imax theaters are 1.9:1 digital. Further, most HDTVs are 1.77:1, and most theater screens are 2.37:1.

The disparity means that you're probably going to be looking at black bars somewhere most of the time anyway, unless you don't mind stretching or zooming in.

It's like 4 hours long, I guess. It wouldn't surprise me if Snyder put markers in it.

Watched a little Unsolved Mysteries Season 2. It's pretty weird how every obvious suicide may be a murder mystery.

Watched the first episode of Invincible. Not a great story, but a fun story. Better than an entire season of The Boys, for all it's animated. I think it helps a lot that JK Simmons voices one of the characters. I alternate between hearing Cave Johnson and "get me pictures of Spiderman."

The superhero nonsense seems better to rarely return to the less of it you watch.

It looks like about a thousand other shows right now.

HBO on Wednesday released the first images from House of the Dragon, a new series based on George R.R. Martin's book Fire and Blood, set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.

Nothing nice to say. Best comment I read from a disappointed fan was "fashion didn't change in 300 years?" I know that seems like an autism thing to be annoyed at but it would be like watching a show about the Revolutionary War where George Washington is dressed like he is commanding the invasion of Iraq.

I would watch a series where Washington is dressed like he's ready to invade Iraq. I could see that being a Turtledove book. Heavy pass on any more Game of Thrones stuff. They had their chance, I think.

So I mentioned that JK Simmons is a VA on Invincible. I'm sure people will recall that he also played Cave Johnson in Portal 2. Here's a bit of a well-done fusion between the two:

Not embedded because spoilers and there's people here who take comic book stuff seriously.
