OK. Watched two episodes of this now. I'm entirely unfamiliar with the books, but is this ever going to stop being sub-Tolkien, second-rate-D&D-campaign shit?
If it's at all similar to the books, then no.

If you read the books you can follow the characters as they 'level-up'. I would say it's AD&D 2nd Edition.

Perhaps we need a meating to discuss this.

This thread is being needlessly milked.

As it has been said this was an improvement from last week, however, last week lowered the bar to such a degree I'm waiting to see if they can manage two episodes in a row before making any judgements on this one.

Ahha, oh man. I knew the Netflix live action remake of COWBOY BEBOP was going to be, at best, a well intentioned, lukewarm redo but I wasn't anticipating such levels of thudding mediocrity.
Isn't that Netflix's raison d'etre?

Big drop off in enjoyment with the second episode. A raging hot mess really that did very little to advance the overall arc, I thought. This episode could have been called War: A Comedy of Pointless Jokes.

Sad news about Stockwell. He had a number of memorable roles. RIP.

Finally forced myself to watch the first episode and both myself and Mrs. VB enjoyed it enough. Mrs. VB proclaimed it was the best one she'd seen with Whittaker (she is not a fan of the Lady Doctor). If they could dial back a little more of the awful humour and stick to the last 10 minutes of this episode they may have something for this series.

DUNE (2021)

Absolutely blows chunks. If you enjoyed all the scenes of space ships landing in the SW: Prequels I'm glad someone made a compilation playlist for those weirdos.
So true. Hope we don't get the sequel.
I only hear two things about Dune - It's Great!/It Sucks!. No middle ground it seems.

Dune is my favourite book of all time. I read it at least once a year now. I will see this film but wait until I can watch it at home.

Silverado. Not just a great western but a great film altogether.

It's only been four years. It's not uncommon for shows and films to languish for a decade or more.
