The first Purge movie was awful. All of those characters are brain dead morons. The only enjoyment I got out of it was making fun of it. I haven't seen the second and don't intend to. Still, a comic series could actually work well with the concept. I could see someone like Robert Kirkman making a great comic series out of it.

This show gives me such mixed feelings. I still watch it every week and enjoy it well enough but I had much higher expectations. Guillermo Del Toro is my absolute favorite director of all time but this show doesn't feel as much like a Del Toro work as I was hoping it would. I know he is just a producer and hasn't had a ton of hands-on involvement since casting the show and writing/directing the first episode but I still wanted to be sucked into a visually stunning and engaging Del Toro show. My expectations may have been a bit unrealistic but I really hope these last few episodes pick up and next season hooks me much more.
Wait, I have more to add.
My favorite rivalry ever is Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels that culminated in my favorite match ever at Wrestlemania XIX. That is a match I can re-watch any day of the week.
I'd also like to point out that the talent pool is actually pretty deep. They have a ton of guys that can wrestle. The problem is that the WWE refuses to properly utilize the talent that they do have. Dolph Ziggler, Big E, Wade Barrett, Cesaro, Kofi Kingston, Ryback, and Rusev are all guys I believe could and should be in the main event.
Raw was terrible again as you guys discussed but NXT definitely saved the WWE this week. I am actually amazed at the quality gap between the two shows. Raw has been bad to terrible for a month straight now essentially and NXT is almost always great. I don't even include Smackdown in that because I never bother to watch it. The same things that happened on Raw are repeated on there every week and the show does nothing. I get why they got rid of the brand separation but now Smackdown serves absolutely no purpose. They need to figure something out for that show because I just don't get it.
I'm really hoping for a Jericho win at Night of Champions. The match means nothing because they decided to just slap it together but this is Jericho's last match before another Fozzy hiatus. Idk when he will be back again so I'd like to see him win at NOC. A win for Orton doesn't really do anything for him but it'd be nice for us Jerichoholics to get a Y2J win over a top talent before he leaves again.
I'll definitely be watching this but I am terrified about what might happen. I know it is just a different interpretation of the Batman mythos but it bothers me greatly that we will be seeing so many villains when Bruce is still only a child. Some of them make sense. Penguin and Riddler, for instance, are fine. When they said Joker would be in it...that is when I got really scared. Idk how this show will turn out but I am really hoping it's good.
I thought this show was okay. I defended it pretty consistently last year because I think judging a show too harshly after one or two episodes is ridiculous. That said, I doubt I'll be watching season 2 as it airs. Supernatural and Agents of SHIELD will be on at the same time and I find Supernatural much more entertaining. I'll be recording the episodes but I rarely have time to actually go back and watch the recordings on my DVR so Idk if/when I'll actually see them.
@g_man: It is outstanding. Sideshow always does great work but I'm absolutely floored by it. The cost was a bit higher than I'm normally willing to spend on a collectible but I'd say it is well worth it for the quality of product.
I really don't know how to vote on this. My gut is telling me Nightwing and Robin but Cyclops is very impressive. I don't think the numbers disadvantage would rattle him at all and the optic blasts are something Nightwing and Robin would have an incredible hard time dealing with. Then, even if they get in close, he is an extremely skilled hand-to-hand combatant. Hmmmmmm. I may have to ponder this for a while.
I love Hellboy and BPRD! I am making my way through both of them in trade. Currently on hiatus due to finances and school but I'm trying to read it all. I actually just got the new premiere format Hellboy from Sideshow in the mail on Friday. It is the coolest thing I own. I'm blown away by the detail.
