DCCU Trailers: My Top Three Hates

San Diego Comic Con came and went, and left in its wake were trailers for both Suicide Squad and Batman Vs. Superman.

I make no bones about my hate for Zack Snyder, Man of Steel, or the DC Cinematic Universe taking it's no-joy, no-fun cues from self-hating superhero movies like Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. But I'd harbored secret hopes for Suicide Squad, because sometimes, Suicide Squad has been a dark comedy, and maybe some of that would leak through. Nope.

The three biggest things I hated from the Suicide Squad trailer:

Destination: Cable Box (July 15)

And so we wrap up the general-purpose taping for a week. Wednesday is also a heavy taping day but it's not so bad because most of it I, um, don't watch.

Ring Of Honor Wrestling and Impact Wrestling

Destination: Cable Box (July 14)

Tuesdays are usually a big day for recordings, although with Inside Amy Schumer having wrapped its season last week, it's a little lighter than normal.

Another Period

It's broad, it's crude, it's brutal, and it's hilarious. It's chock full of comedy talent, and tonight, Jack Black sings "20't Century swimsuits" in an old-timey crooner voice which I apparently cannot get enough of.

The Meltdown With Jonah And Kumail

Destination: Cable Box (July 13)

Did I forget to do this today? Maaaaaaaybe. Am I going to pretend half this stuff didn't already record? Maaaaaaybe.

Monday Night RAW

If I didn't record it and watch it, how could I complain about it?

Gravity Falls

One of the greatest cartoons on television returns (returned) tonight for the back half of its second season, after a huge cliffhanger and major things happening. If you don't watch it, you should figure out how to start from the beginning. It's got Kristen Schaal in it, for fuck's sake.

Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Destination: Cable Box (July 11/12)

Couldn't post yesterday, but none of my regularly scheduled shows air on Saturday anyway. I did record Andy Samberg's "Seven Days in Hell" off of HBO and Bridget Everett's "Gynecological Wonder" special off of Comedy Central, but who knows when I'll get around to watching them.

On deck tonight:


I've been enjoying the revival since it started up this summer. Everything surrounding the fights is completely fucking ridiculous and overblown, but the fights themselves are fun and they do a nice job of establishing continuity with the old show.

Monthly Free Games (July 2015)

No great surprises in this month's free games. Well, OK, one surprise. Microsoft is offering two free games during the month and neither of them is motherfcking PoolNationFX. Anyway, it's the usual array of year and a half old retail titles and new indies.

Plants Vs. Zombies (XBox 360)

I've played Plants Vs. Zombies to death, first on my iPod Touch, then on my iPad. It's a great game. Not sure how great it is on consoles, but if you've somehow never played it before, now's your chance.

Assassin's Creed: Black Flag (XBox One)

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (July 6-10)

One week from Battleground, and the WWE has one, count it, one match that I'm even remotely interested in. All other matches pale by comparison. Kevin Owens, and to a lesser extent, John Cena, is making the rest of the roster dull by comparison and also dull because of a bunch of shitty booking.


Destination: Cable Box (7/10)

Friday is always a light day for recordings, even more so now that they've moved Comedy Bang Bang. Other than more Spoils Before Dying, there's only two things I'm recording tonight:

New Japan Pro Wrestling

I've mentioned this before in the wrestling posts - this is a show on AXS that basically compiles matches or chunks of matches from the best and some of the not so best of major New Japan events from last year. I keep them around for when I have nothing else I want to watch.

The Soup

The Apple Watch (At One Week)

So, yeah, I got one. Had it for a week now, so I'm comfortable talking about at least a week's worth of experience.

First, the technical details. Apple Watch Sport, 42mm (the larger one), Space Grey because ALWAYS SPACE GREY, and black band because black watch black band is classic old-school digital watch nerd.

Destination: Cable Box (7/9)

As an OLDNERD, I still use antiquated "Digital Video Recorder" technology for most of what I watch instead of streaming it on demand from a web-based subscription service like some goddamned cord-cutting millennial. Don't tell anyone, but when it comes to video, I even sometimes still buy physical media. I know, right?
