    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Yeah, it's getting trashed. There's not a single positive review in this whole roundup:

    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Welp, I still haven't finished Jessica Jones (despite liking it) or seen a single episode of Daredevil's second season or any of Luke Cage, so seems like as good a time as any to be reminded to watch those (when I have the time) and not rush into this.
    Last 11 things I really enjoyed:

    Speed Racer (Wachowski/Wachowski, 2008)
    Safe (Haynes, 1995)
    South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (Parker, 1999)
    Beastie Boys Story (Jonze, 2020)
    Bad Trip (Sakurai, 2020)
    What's Up Doc? (Bogdanovich, 1972)
    Diva (Beineix, 1981)
    Delicatessen (Caro/Jeunet, 1991)
    The Hunger (Scott, 1983)
    Pineapple Express (Green, 2008)
    Chungking Express (Wong, 1994)

    14% on RT. It's only in reading these reviews that I remember the showrunner is Scott Buck. We all should have expected this.

    So far not so good. Imagine if show Daredevil focused less on crime fighting and it was mostly a courtroom drama. That is sort of what we get here. It's all corporate stuff, meetings and dealings. The only good thing about the show so far has been Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing.

    There was a lot of courtroom and lawyer crap in the first season of Daredevil.

    This mental health angle is so stupid.

    I also really didn't anyicipate it to be so cringey watching Finn Jones talk about Buddha and bowing and stuff.

    Wow this is infuriating. They keep dropping names like Lei Kung and August Personade in Jade and Davos but instead of being about them we're just watching a kung fu man argue about corporate ethics with Donald Trump Jr.

    4 Episodes in, and I'm having a better time with this than Luke Cage after [

    I think Luke Cage is the best Marvel/Netflix team up so far, and this has a steep uphill climb ahead to get to that. Starting ep 2.

    Episode 8 was badass, and the episode before it was well written too. So hopefully this continues.

    Episode 3. I feel like its improving, or maybe just my tolerance of it. Biggest complaint: [

    Directed by Kevin Tanchareon, who's the reason why Agents of SHIELD has several episodes like that per season and is better at action scenes than any of Netflix's shows.
