Is this thread a commentary of the originality of Hollywood (/Toronto/Vancouver) storylines?

If along comes something original, like say a Space Western with Hookers but without Aliens, it should prolly be CANCD immediately.

Things have some a long ways since the Adam West show, Lois n Clark, Mutant X, Smallville and the old retro Wonder Woman series


not sure if this is a thread or commentary or what but here's a summary on Flash and Legion

http://www.metacritic.com/tv/legion

Based on the X-Men comics character, David Haller (Dan Stevens) was diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child and currently institutionalized. His routine at a psychiatric hospital is changed with the arrival of a new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller) which triggers the discovery that the voices and visions he has may be real

http://www.metacritic.com/tv/the-flash-2014

The spinoff of The CW's Arrow finds Central City forensic assistant Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) with superhuman speed after being struck by a bolt of lightning during an accident at a particle accelerator. With the help of three scientists at Harrison Wells' S.T.A.R. Lab, he helps the citizens of Central City as he seeks answers to his mother's murder.



The Flash | Extended Trailer | The CW
36 million hits



Legion Official Trailer #1 [HD] | An Original Series From FX and Marvel
almost 4 million, 3.5 + million hits


the other end of the spectrum might be shows like
'Walking Dead' or weird stuff like 'Preacher', Outcast, iZombie, XIII or any of the big fanboy and fangirl followings of Japanese anime...they say Joss something draws inspiration from Japan animations

Also the 'motion-comics' thing is interesting

anyways here's Preacher

Looks like the 'super-hero' or comicbook genre will be around for a while yet

... fully loaded, safety off...


Legion is unique, even dare I say, ground breaking tv. It's not the usual fast clip tv, so one needs to be patient to appreciate it. I would suggest watching multiple episodes at a time.

Will binge watch soon and probably check the Flash and Legion

Iron Fist was generally shit on by the critics
bad reviews at meta critic and rotten tomatoes

fan consensus on twitter, the boards, forums say its generally ok, some good moments but lot of criticism too


maybe IronFist is already a flop
or will Marvel turn it around


some feedback

America loves a winner!


Just finished Iron Fist. Mildly disappointed, because Luke Cage and Daredevil were soooo superior. ( Jessica Jones was superior thanks in large part to ...well,

Yeah, Iron Fist was okay but I think it's the weakest of the 4 shows. I am still looking forward to The Defenders.
