Hello Party People
Just found out that season one of Stargirl, a new DC/CW superhero show on US TV, will be shown on Amazon Prime in the UK from 21st August.
From what I've read, this new show seems to have some "good things" going for it.
However, there is a problem on the horizon, whereas the Stargirl team are already talking about potential future crossovers with the other CW shows, Supergirl being the most obvious, chances are we in the UK will never see it (cry Crisis... anyone).
Yep, was reading that same article last night and since you posted that Stargirl trailer link several thread pages ago, it was certainly a show I was keen to watch.....so the fact it's off to Amazon is a bit of a disappointment. I'm a Freeview and Now TV Entertainment Pass person and have still never ventured in to the Worlds of Netflix or Amazon Prime Video (maybe one day), so I'll just have to wait until a Stargirl DVD/Blu-ray is released at some point in the future.
I had hoped it might have found a home at Sky One (jings, even E4 would have done), but after the whole Batwoman fiasco, maybe Sky aren't that interested in dealing with Warner Media for any new stuff......although, with many Covid-19 related schedule holes to fill in the coming months, maybe a lot of networks were bidding for this and it just happened to be Amazon that won the day??????
Anyway, just recently binged my way through the season one Blu-ray of DC's Titans......and spinning-off from that I think I might also get myself the season one Blu-ray of Doom Patrol????
I found myself an Amazon Prime viewer by default, I ended up an Amazon Prime customer without wanting to, i.e. more by mistake than design, then Amazon kept emailing me to give Amazon Prime TV a try, so I did. I do now watch it from time to time but not as much as Now TV. However, I do look forward to season two of The Boys, and now Stargirl as well.
I also plan to watch Titans and possible Doom Patrol on DVD or BluRay in the near future but I gotta hunt for a new TV, nothing jumping out at me yet but I should get one within the next 1 - 3 months, at the outside.
Catch ya lata (deliberately misspelt) coz' I'm listening to Big Mountain
Funnily enough, The Boys Blu-ray was another thing that I was thinking about buying....... I guess as you're looking forward to watching season two, you would recommend season one?????
I'm very much the same when it comes to new TVs, no need to rush, got to research all that's available and make sure you pick right as you'll probably have it for a few years?? I tend to stick (if I can) to John lewis for the included 5-year-guarantee and also never really go outside a Samsung, Sony or Panasonic.
Music does sound good, just recently purchased the new vinyl EP from Christine and the Queens, so might be time to give that a whirl.
You have to watch season one of The Boys, it's a must watch (no ifs or buts). As for TVs, I'm with you, take my time, check out the facilities and connections, as well as the picture quality. You know, I'm not so keen smart TVs, simply because the smart facilities will fall into disuse, being no longer able to upgrade the smart part, within a few years.
Saying all that, I tend to go for Samsung TVs more than any other, they just seem to have the right balance of everything I'm looking for.
As for big up and comings, you up for the Justice League, the Snyder Cut, I know I am. I've seen the merest snippet of a teaser and I'm intrigued already. Darkseid is coming (the way it should have originally been).
It's coming, here's a brief snippet.
As soon as The Boys Blu-ray hits an acceptable cost-to-episodes ratio I think I'll give it a go.......that's the problem with buying on Amazon, you think if you just wait a bit longer it will go even cheaper!!!!!
Again, very similar here, when I last bought the main TV for my bedroom (where I do most of my watching) I purposely avoided a Smart TV, didn't need or want such a thing. I'm very happy with my non-smart TV and the Now TV App being on my Now TV Stick that's plugged in to the plain TV!!!!!! Not sure if there's any science in this or not, but I tend to think the App on their own devices will be kept working better, where as the Apps on Smart TVs might become more problematic over time????? I haven't particularly researched the TV market for a while, but I'm guessing good non-smart TVs might be a bit rarer than they were a few years ago??
Unfortunately that Justice League thing is not something I've ever watched, I know this new thing is a big deal for those who follow it, but the buzz of excitement is wasted on me.
...the buzz of excitement is wasted on me.
For shame, Thom, for shame.
While I bop around listening to my sweet sweet tunes, I'm thinking that Snyder is going to deliver on his promise to JLA and DECU fans, and since I've seen "Justice League Dark: Apokolips War (2020)", the animated movie, so already I'm kinda hyped up on what to expect from the Snyder Man and his retooling of JLA.
Yeah, the stuff shirts tried to stop him but he came back stronger than ever and now most of them are gone, The remaining stuff shirts, the remnants, are quaking in their boots hoping against hope that the Snyder Man won't show the new bosses what a mess they've made of WB and their super hero IPs. Because a lot of them took editorial film decisions they had no business making and the new JLA cut will give the new bosses all they reasons they need to clear out the old guard remnants.
And possibly also herald in the David Ayer's cut of Suicide Squad, where the stuff shirts bad decisions making took whole new heights of stupidity with this movies theatrical release.
Sorry Thom, went a bit "all in fan boy" there but I'm sure you get the drift.
