the past 2 episodes of MacGyver were actually good because there's perceptible tension involved and minimal Bozer.


i still do not think this new series will inspire people like the old one did, though.

Live action Teen Titans.


by the gods, DC. are you trying to ruin your TV series line as well?

the Flash and Arrow - previously good in their own right - has devolved into repetitive melodrama. and now this?

i know. but surely you didn't call the girl in the pic Blackfire because she resembles the comics/cartoon character more, right? :lol:

Been watching Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee on Netflix.

Love the cars and most of the guests.

i was surprised that Giorgio has so many fans here in the Ph. a few years ago i went to Historycon and planned to attend his talk in the afternoon, but when i arrived in the morning there's already a long queue. didn't get to meet the guy, sadly.

^ He has fans everywhere!

The guy is incredibly chill, he knows he's a meme, and that he's kinda cuckoo but is at peace with all of that.

Ugh, The Expanse is getting axed on SyFy. It's easily the best and the highest-rated sci-fi show on air right now, but apparently it's too expensive to produce for an outfit like SyFy.

Lucifer is getting axed too. I hope another network picks it up.

i am loving Masterchef Australia, especially the new season. generally positive atmosphere and the contestants put out great dishes. they get mentored by more chefs and get to cook in more varied locations. in my opinion they are ahead of Masterchef US by miles. even the prizes are better (this week someone won a trip to London for an afternoon tea with Nigella Lawson).

^ironically, it is not that popular now here in Sydney (compared with season 2's peak). We are not even watching it.

i am just enjoying Season 10 so far. the contestants are really talented, and a few episodes ago one made a MS Australia first: hand-pulled cotton candy. all the judges including Nigella crowded about the contestant to witness it.

next week is Gordon Ramsay week. WHERE'S THE LAMB SAUCE!? :lol:

Trailer for Magnum P.I. reboot:

Gotta say this looks pretty good. Just a campy action show like they used to make.

Flash season 4 finale was quite good. I wish they'd make season 5 with less filler episodes. Quality over quantity.
