Utopia

Show on Fox. Anybody else watching? Looks like it could get real interesting. Couple explosive personalities.


Well, let's get into it the big "what if"

07 September 2014 - 07:10 PM

After a big season opening win, I realize that some may think this is a bit much to bring up already. However, I just want to gauge reactions after today as opposed to pre-kickoff.

Derek Anderson impressed for most of the game. A few throws that could have been better, but you can say that for any QB. I was worried before the game about having to start him, but understood why we did and I'm glad he showed out.

If Cam has a setback this week and isn't basically 100% next week, do you feel confident with going with DA again or do we need to go with Cam barring him somehow worsening his condition?

Mars is in opposition

09 April 2014 - 01:07 AM

Most of you probably won't see this in time, but Mars is visible tonight. Wish I had known sooner. If you're on the east coast, look south. It's brighter than any star tonight, so it's easy to pick out. Pretty clear night from where I'm at, so I found it quick. It has a slight hint of red, even with the naked eye. If you have a telescope or a camera with good zoom capabilities, you can get a pretty good shot of it.


Arrow

01 April 2014 - 12:39 AM

Didn't see a thread for this show, so I'm starting one.


For those who don't know, Arrow is a show on The CW about DC's Green Arrow hero (he's neck and neck with Batman for my favorite comics, so when they announced the show a couple of years ago, I was more than excited). It is absolutely amazing. It sticks pretty closely to the comic origins, and where it diverts, it's worth it or at the very least, they make it work in a way that doesn't bother you. Stephen Amell is PERFECT for the role of Oliver Queen/Arrow, and the supporting cast is phenomenal. Mostly little known actors, as far as I know, with a few that are more well-known, like Katie Cassidy and Susanna Thompson.

There are a LOT of commonly known characters not just from the Green Arrow universe, but from the DC universe as a whole (mostly names associated with Batman). There was an awesome cameo by Harley Quinn recently, for example. Most of the characters aren't deeply developed, as you just can't do it with every character, but the main cast is well developed, and they try to delve into personal stories involving the minor characters throughout the episodes.

Plot moves well. Very focused. Utilizes flashbacks in every episode (mostly dealing with Oliver's time on the island where he was put through a crucible of sorts to become Green Arrow. Though, he's known as everything BUT GA on the show. Mostly referred to as "The Hood", "The Vigilante" and "(The) Arrow"). Plot basically works in arcs, like most shows based on comics would. Except, they're not drawn out like TWD. You have 2-4 episodes that deal with a particular arc where sub-plots are dispersed, and at the end of the seasons, it seems like they throw in the big arc that takes up 5-7 episodes with fewer sub-plots. The good news is, this isn't based on the comics any further than by name and origins. It's entirely independent, so you don't have that thought in the back of your head where you're saying "this episode isn't like the comics AT ALL" like you do with some movies/shows.


I know, long overview of it, but I figured I'd entice some to check it out. I couldn't catch most of this second season, and I just got time the past few days to catch up on it. HIGHLY recommend watching this, because it's rare that a small network like The CW puts out such a quality product. Anybody else already watching?
