    The Umbrella Academy

    Also, so many questions that were never even touched on being answered(in addition to the slightly annoying cliffhanger ending). Like how freaking old was Reginald when he died? He must have been at least 130 years old, judging by the flashbacks. And wtf was that glowy stuff he released into the air?

    The Umbrella Academy

    Add the three nannies Vanya killed to that, i thought it was weird how they were treated in that scene, it was almost played for humor w/ Reginald's reactions. Had no problem w/ Reginald suppressing Vanya's powers. How many innocent people does a 4 year old need to kill before you go to that option. Not sure if i was supposed to be rooting for Hazel and his girlfriend, but i want that bastard to die after his brutal torture and murder of three innocent tow truck driver. Fuck him. There was no reason to kill that guy at all. Such a weird vibe overall that's never mentioned, placing it in a fictional 2019 where computers and cell phones don't exist. I see the comic was set in 1977, so they had to choose either setting it in that era(probably increasing the budget to make many things period accurate), setting it in this alternate universe 2019, or making some big story changes to accommodate for technology.

    S02.E11: The Abyss

    It's not Madani's case. Her boss doesn't want her anywhere near it. The medical examiner and detectives on the case haven't even looked at the bodies yet, other parties can't just have a look at them first. I assume they are working on the assumption that Frank wouldn't just intentionally execute a few innocent women at point blank range, which is what the evidence points to.

    S02.E06: Nakazat

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing since they showed us the film canisters. Why? The film itself requires whatever spy cam they used to be much larger and more noticeable than a digital one. Makes zero sense. The outfit quick change was pretty smooth, but A.not single one of those school girls bats an eye at Amy doing that in their midst. B.Amy managed to find a reversible, Velcro, quick-change skirt that perfectly matches the school uniform AND the waitress uniform on very short notice.

    Alexa Davalos in the Marvel universe is something I needed to see! She was my early on hope for an Electra casting, but this will do( I know opinions are mixed, but I love Elodie as Electra). And, as much as I love TMITHC, and despite her small number of appearances, she'll always be Gwen from Angel to me.

    S05.E02: Trespassers

    Three months into No Man's Land and Jim knows where to find a dry cleaner that is still up and running. That was so silly. Yeah, Bruce just traded the lives of three innocent people for Selina walking again. That's on him, and it really doesn't do much for my opinion of him.

    Bit of an accent? It felt like they just dropped out of a Charles Dickens' story between the accent and their outfits. They could have just saved money and edited in footage from the witch scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    Small Talk: The Quiver

    At this point, I'm thinking I'm going to start waiting for a few shows I'm interested in watching to drop, pay for a month and binge them, then unsubscribe until something else is released. I've been planning to do that when the full season of Titans is available on DC. Nothing announced for Disney has me super excited at this point, but I'll probably do the same with that if I hear good things about any of the shows, doing it for Netflix too would make sense. Definitely not just going to pile up a bunch of streaming services on top of each other, but as long as no commitment, month to month payments are the standard I'll rotate them to whichever has more unseen content i want to check out at the time.

    Blind Items: Daredevil In The Media

    This is really on Netflix, not Disney. Netflix doesn't want to air shows that are de facto advertisements for a competing service. I don't believe Disney/Marvel is in the least bit worried about watering anything down, any exposure to a corner of the MCU can be seen as a gateway to draw interest in their service. I know it goes against the common assumptions, but this is more about a Netflix choice than Disney trying to kill these shows. https://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2018/11/30/the-real-reasons-netflix-is-cancelling-their-marvel-shows/#723c606a196c

    Blind Items: Daredevil In The Media

    They still had good viewership, and calling season 2 not well received is big overstatement(78% from critics, 94% from fans on Rotten Tomatoes).

    S03.E13: A New Napkin

    Sorry, never bought into Fisk's bullshit about "making Hell's Kitchen a better place", that was just a bunch nonsense rationalization. His version of making it a better place somehow includes putting heroin on the streets, trading humans as sex slaves, killing whoever when the mood strikes him, and just coincidentally making hundreds of millions of dollars off of all his plans. That's not a different approach, that's crap. He was just justifying his lust for power and money.

    Why? Simply because she's his girlfriend/wife? Lots of organized crime figures have significant others, very few step into their partners roles when they go down. Why would they have any reason to believe she is capable of continuing his work with him gone? Even as viewers, why on earth should we believe that she could run Fisk's organization with him dead? She's an art gallery manager. She was fully taken into his confidence on his business for all of 24 hours. She has no idea how everything works. Her order to go after Ray would have carried no weight without Fisk behind it. Why would anyone even follow her w/ Fisk gone? She's a nasty, greedy, cold person. That's a long way from being an untouchable criminal mastermind that's above the law.

    Another little oddity, earlier in that episode Ray mentions that he had known her for ten years, then later she tells Ray that she had two children and one died/was killed, as if he had no idea about that. How long has she been in Fisk's pocket? I'm not sure how you could work with someone and not know about that, i have coworkers I barely know and never interact with, but that would be something I would here about and over them condolences for.

    Now, my real take away on season 3. Jfc, are they ever gonna let Matt get laid? Three seasons, 3 love interests, and approximately 3 years of in-show time, and he can't get past first base(Electra was a flashback from 10 years prior).Every other hero does, Luke Cage sleeps with every women he is alone with for more than 5 minutes. And Karen? I think it's official that Matt and Karen are the only multi-season regulars on any of the shows that haven't gotten laid. No wonder they are so glum and depressed all the time. Jebus, let those two knock one out together. Even if you can't stand them together, maybe Karen can get cozy with Ellison's nephew for a while(no, not Frank, he's the Punisher, he'll never be over his wife). And after rewatching the Defenders, I'm convinced that when Trish asked Karen what was up with her and that lawyer, she was asking because she was checking Matt out. I could go for a little Hellcat/Daredevil as a stand in for the comics Black Widow/Daredevil relationship, prowling around rooftops together.

    I don't consider it a full 2 year wait, since the Defenders came in the middle of that, and also wouldn't expect that much time if a season 4 is greenlit, since there are no plans for another Defenders season.
