Yeah, this character archetype definitely has a lot of issues making them problematic to a lot of storylines. Who knows where they’re taking it though, since I don’t think we know exactly what purpose three eyed ravens serve. He could come up big for people later on once he’s got a grip on his powers, more like a hit… Read more
I was really surprised not more of the staff were hosts. It just makes clean sense to have the robots repairing the robots, best unpaid staff that never complains about overtime ever!
None of what was hinted at? They’re tropey stereotypical lab geeks stuck in a basement all the time butchering robots, you don’t need much in terms of hinting to know that the’re going to get invested, they’re not very independent minded, and they’ll do whatever people will yell at them to do.

I didn’t mind the predictability so much as I disliked all that endless exposition. I mean, it’s a bit more forgivable since it was Hopkins doing most of it, and it played into the whole game “narration” theme, but at times it seemed a little too insulting to the audience. It’s HBO, it’s not network TV, you don’t have… Read more
I can understand the techs acting the way they did. To get a little meta about it, they got a little taste of the park, but in their real lives. Their job sucks, their lives probably suck worse (they’re hooking up with robots on the clock, being pathetic’s probably a job requirement there), they’re feeling very… Read more
I liked MIB/Billy storyline more than not just because of how impotent it/he ended up being. He was an obnoxious character as MIB, and I found him worse as Billy since I’m absolutely tired of the whole “dude finding himself” narrative (heh, meta). I like how they subverted it, I like how he was never really the real… Read more
Oh man, I saw the headline and your name and was scared for a second you were leaving too. Was speculating about who would take the reigns once Charlie Jane left, but and then jokingly suggested you, but then more seriously considered it and approved, so this is welcome news!
All for less-of-an-asshole Matt! If only he could better temper his day job, night job, and personal life in a healthy manner, but dude was a third raised by a boxer that threw fights, a ninja assassin, and like nuns. Would he have had a hope in hell(‘s kitchen)? I think it’s doable exactly the way you described, but… Read more
I think Foggy accepted that Matt needed to get his vigilantism on and doesn’t revisit telling him to stop, which is different than pointing out all the ways that his nightly activities are harming himself and others. I mean, if Foggy really wasn’t as accepting he wouldn’t be chasing Matt around all the rooftops of… Read more
I think it’s not that he had to choose, but he needed to better manage. No one gave Matt an ultimatum except Frank. Foggy didn’t tell him to choose and Karen didn’t know any better. The issue is that Matt fell short by not trusting his friends, by not better communicating his situation and listening to his friends, by… Read more
That’s fine that Hell’s Kitchen is a dump compared to its real-world counterpart, but there hasn’t been mention (as far as I know) of a difference in geographic size, which is the issue here. Like, it’s a few goddamn blocks, relatively speaking, Daredevil’s square meter to justice dealt/upheld ratio is godawful… Read more
Matt also took a side by helping out the Chaste which seems to exist just to avenge the victims of the Hand. They seem like dicks too, so yeah, I agree, having some context about why the Hand should be stopped and why the Chaste is better would have helped the season tons.
Yeah, like grievous blunt force trauma totes does not count, even if it can lead to brain damage/coma/internal bleeding/eating nothing solid for the rest of your life.
