Age is but a number.
I was hyped two weeks ago because of My Mum Tracy Beaker. I grew up reading the books and watching the show so it was a proper nostalgia hit. The show had some decent parts in it but the timing and the pace was so fast.
I also just finished watching every episode of Sons of Anarchy and to me, about 95% of their problems could've been avoided if it wasn't for Gemma. Seasons 1-4 were great but after Season 5, it steadily declined to the point that Seasons 6 and 7 was such a chore to watch. It felt really slow and it was a shame because the first four seasons, I watched them in more or less one day but the last 3 took me over two weeks. Great acting though and some of the songs were really good too!
I thought I'd try and watch something I'd never usually watch as well. One of my friends ALWAYS bangs on about RuPaul's Drag Race UK so we both watched it together over WhatsApp. The one I watched was where they ripped off Blankety Blank and dressed as celebrities. The Katie Price one was really funny but other than that, I didn't find the others funny at all, personally. I didn't get the one-liner puns when they were on the runway either. I mean, I got it but I didn't find it as hilarious as they did. I also don't understand the lip-syncing either- is it to do with who remembers the most words from the song or who looks convincing singing it? Maybe I should've watched it from the first episode but I might be missing something? The two Scottish guys and the vegan were the only guys I liked. I thought the rest were really bitchy. Also, Gemma Collins...no thanks, lmao.
Right now, I'm binging on Karate Kid/Cobra Kai. I'm going to watch the films and then the show. I've seen them before but I just got the Karate Kid Collection on bluray and I am hyped for it! Although the first Karate Kid is rated 15 and I really don't understand why.
So, I thought about making a dedicated thread for the Avatarverse (not my name of choice for it, but whatever, it's stuck with the press apparently!) last summer after rewatching The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra, but I didn't think there was enough to drive an ongoing discussion in a dedicated thread, besides more people potentially getting into the show through Netflix, which it owes a lot of its resurgence to.
However, after Bryan and Mike left the Netflix TLA project, I had a suspicion that it wouldn't end there. So, while Netflix is off reportedly casting a 12 year-old Aang and a 16 year-old Katara - who will be a big sister to Sokka, completely killing his character arc, and probably trying to force Zatara on us all - Nickelodeon has finally decided to acknowledge the golden egg they've been sitting on for years.
And confirmation from Paramount what to expect: new series, short-term content, spin-offs, and theatrical films. Oh, and the Avatar Studios logo, which looks great!
Well, I think it's safe to say that that might be able to drive and sustain some discussion beyond returning to The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, and expanded lore.
I genuinely never thought this would happen, just considering how they completely kicked Legend of Korra to the curb. You know, when they ordered one season, then ordered way more, then brushed it under the rug and moved brand new episodes over to the Nickelodeon website? And now they're back!
What do you hope to see come of this? What's your experience with the series to this point? And do you think the cabbage merchant will make his return?
Personally, I'd love to see adaptations of the graphic novels, as they seem like a natural and relatively straightforward place to start.
Update on the Japan Studio restructure, from IGN.
Pretty much just confirms the news VGC broke before, and in corporate speak, is putting Japan Studio to rest.
EDD being integrated more into PlayStation Studios directly, with the right support, could be a great way for them to continue supporting third party relations, especially when it comes to projects such as those we've seen Bluepoint handle so far.
Otherwise, yeah, this still sucks.
March is the third month of the year.
It's been nearly three years since God of War released.
Fimbulwinter lasts three long years before Ragnarök arrives.*
We aren't getting a game in March for PS+.
So, as you say, March is cancelled.
And if March is cancelled then the year is only 11 months long.
Making 2021 a short year.
Meaning it won't have been three long years before Ragnarök arrives.
Meaning Ragnarök isn't arriving in 2021.
Ragnarök is delayed to 2022 confirmed.
*(okay but seriously this is probably the only reason they announced it as coming in 2021)
