I was really looking forward to Armour Wars, but I do have to temper this disappointment with the notion that now it won't be a poorly paced 20m episodes + 15 minutes of credits D+ series that ends episodes halfway through scenes and leaves you feeling like you're watching something that just isn't finished week to week.

So maybe a movie will be better?

Yeah, it's shocking how much they've wasted the longer format that would have normally provided more air time to set up more character development for overarching villains and the protagonists but I guess Disney can't seem to wrap their heads around what other TV shows have been able to do for years.

Tangentially related, but if you like Lower Decks you might want to check out Final Space, and do so soon because HBO is wiping it from all official services.

Did Final Space finish, or get cancelled after a third season cliff-hanger?

Yeah but the upside is that Final Space seems like the kind of show people will spend 20 years trying to revive and over the past 20 years those have sometimes been oddly successful in getting a finale or subsequent entry made so maybe it'll get an ending eventually.

I liked the first season of Final Space but then it got a lot less interesting for me after the second season so I never bothered following up with it afterwards. Really shows how you need pirating or DVD sets to actually keep shows alive rather relying on streaming services though.

She - Hulk episode 8 - a really fun one. Daredevil's fights were even better than in his own show. What I did not like was his costume' colors (Was it like that in comics? I thought he is supposed to wear red), and how Jen destroyed that car (Would she really care not about damaging someones property?).

I read Jen’s car throwing as her not being quite in control of her Hulk side as she might like to think.

Not necessarily angry, but Impulsive.

Interesting tidbit? Sokovia Accords have been rescinded. Not sure when or why that happened, but possibly a post Snap “oh alright then”?

I haven't yet seen the episode - but I guess with a Asgardian enclave and the explosion of what seems to be 3rd tier supers in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, that registering them seems unworkable.

Of course, getting rid of the Sakovia Accords means there is room for the Mutant Registration Act.

So that was the big plan, to put up embarrassing photos or Jen and call her a slut in front of people who would obviously know better?

Dealing with some real masterminds here... totally no projecting from the writers at all. Nosireebob!

Aside from the tacked on bit from the end - as stated by Jen herself - the rest of it worked pretty well. It's clear that MCU Daredevil is far less grounded than Netflix Daredevil, even if there was a tiny bit of the original theme played when he introduced himself.

I see it more as provoking a reaction from her.

It is of course taking the piss out of Weird Internet Man Babies, hence the claim she “stole” her powers from Hulk, and the doxxing, literally trying to embarrass or shame her for…..fully consenting adult behaviour.

The desire for the reaction? Probably “wImMiNs R 2 EmOsHuNaL” type tripe.

The writers have been directly taking all of those comments from twitter and the comments section of YouTube promo materials. They have posted comparison shots of the dialog or text in the show next to the tweets and gak that they more or less copy pasted into the show. There is no projecting. It's just putting in the show what actually happened in life.


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

Link doesn't seem to be working, but yes, Daredevil's original costume was yellow. It was replaced with the red one very early on though.

Hm, weird, seems fine from my end. Irregardless, you can just Google Daredevil Yellow to see the comic version of this mixed red and yellow suit.

There was a good reason they went from yellow to red and this isn't even a good yellow. I do not care for the Urine Dare Devil suit.

I have to admit I didn't expect Matt Murdoch's intro to the MCU be him and Jen doing the (Dare)Devil's Tango but here we are.

Also the DD fight choreography was nowhere near as good as the older series fights. it was fine but a bit more CGI than I would like but the Netflix series had amazingly choreographed and shot fight scenes. This was MCU de rigueur.

I appreciated seeing how Matt gets around buildings in the MCU something the Netflix one was never quite capable of doing.

Leaping off the sides of buildings and working his way down to the ground was great. Will enjoy seeing more of that.

Which I think I’ll watch again after La Llorona is finished.

I agree that was really well done.


Mad Doc Grotsnik wrote:It wasn’t. He’s in No Way Home


Eh, that was just a cameo as Murdoch as opposed to having something meaningful to do as both MM and DD. It is like the difference between Venom's first appearance that is just a single panel with no dialogue and the first comic where he actually does something throughout the issue. Still, you are technically correct, which is the best kind of correct.

Also I again I reiterate my dislike for the urine colored suit. It is just awful.


Edit: So does Jen Hulking out at the end of the episode recontextualize her statements from the first episode where she said that she always controls her anger because she is a woman in a man's world? It seems like maybe she was just telling herself that and that in the end it is just a different set of triggers that make her go to the smashy smash place.

Nah, she still looked largely in control there, just quite justifiably angry.

Everyone’s got their limit. And if, as we see, a bunch of Weird Internet Man Babies decide to deliberately provoke someone? That limit can be reached and breached.

With HBO deleting it from everywhere... it might prove more difficult.

It depends on the era, as most superheroes:





It's more complicated than this as it's gone back and forth between costumes from time to time, but...

It’s good. It’s very very good. Not for Kids, as whilst not gory, the violence is surprisingly graphic. I’d definitely advise anyone with Smalls to watch it first, and decide if it’s suitable viewing.
