Alan Moore must be digging his own grave so he can then spin in it.

Not much to say about this new HBO series apart from the fact it looks absolutely awful.
I'll stick with The Handmaids Tale for my weekly slice of dystopian Drumpf.

Jeez - just caught up with this. What an appalling cash-in.

He won't put his name on it.

Watched the trailer for this the other day and the only thing running through my mind was "what the f*** is this s***?"  It's going to take something radical to shift from that position.

Just read that President Robert Redford from the comic is being played by real-life Robert Redford.  Which is cool, but it still looks a bit crap.

I'm hearing that this thing is getting some positive reviews. Rather than go looking for evidence to support these allegations, I thought I'd raise an eyebrow here, instead.

*raised eyebrow*

The industry response to this all along hasn't exactly been what one would call cautious or critical, so I'm not sure positive reviews of the end product should surprise anyone.

I’ve decided it’s shit and I’m not going to actually watch it, because then I might have to change my mind.

Nah - I'll give it a go - watch the first season to see just how bad it can be.

I used a vaguely similar tactic with the last three seasons of Breaking Bad. I didn't like the first two seasons enough to continue but everyone kept telling me how great it was.

So I just assumed it is brilliant and now, i don't need to watch it and reconcile how I really feel with the critical mass of opinion.

I think they call it a win-win.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

In my defence, I really like John Carter. :-)
