    I don't care how far it strays from the comic, at all... but the character motivations and traits are what I loved - moreso than the tales.

    It'd be like, say... if Tony Stark were put on screen as a guy that decided to continue war profiteering and built the armor "just because".

    The universe and stories work... but the characters do not for me because that's the part I love from the series.

    One episode doesn't tell you much. It's an overarching story that dumps lots of tropes on it's head, and thpugh disguised as a cartoon comedy with animal puns it's actually a tragic comedy noir in which actual consequences happen from every action which don't go away. Forgiveness isn't given; hurt people stay hurt; Hollywood is actually renamed Hollywoo when the sign is damaged.

    If there's anything I dislike about it, it's the irritatingly stupid Todd. I don't know why cartoons always have to have this cbaracter. I can't watch the Simpsons because of Homer....stupid is just not funny to me at all. Still, as with Homer, Todd eventually serves a purpose as a moral foil.

    Survivor's Remorse on Starz... pretty good. I am enjoying it much more than Ballers.

    The Strain

    @CRUDS

    I had a false start watching this one. I just was not into it when I watched the first 3ish episodes when it first aired. Cruds talked me into giving it another chance. Starts slow... introductions and backgrounds on our main characters. I will admit season 1 is a bit of a slog and you kinda still dont know WTF is going on, but it starts going and how. I could do a comparison contrast with politics but I will decline. People will see in it what they will. I will just say that the story gets an ultimate ending and an epilogue. And at the end I was glad Cruds talked me into giving it another shot.

    Curb is back tomorrow. Really hoping it's not a shell of its former self a la Arrested Development. But sadly that's what I'm expecting.
