If anyone is wondering, the track is "Retrograde" by James Blake. Dope indeed.
I saw the trailer after the latest episode of Game of Thrones. It definitely piqued my interest, same with Damon Lindelof being involved. I am a LOST fan.
If you don´t know the song, here it is
Started watching AMC´s new series "Turn", has been disappointing so far, a spy show should be more exciting
I watched the first episode of Turn because my brother's girlfriend was interested and we had nothing else to do on Easter. It seemed interesting to me, but I forgot about it due to it airing in the same timeslot as GoT. I kind of zoned out at times and it didn't really hold my interest. Not really making me want to continue honestly.
Craig Ferguson is leaving. Ah damn, my go to late night talk show. ):
I started Salem. I find it surprisingly good. It's gruesome with strong characters. It might be a good pick.
I just don't like the last season of Continuum. All characters are becoming jackasses. Kiera is becoming a bitch, Alec 1 is a romantic lunatic. Alec 2 is a robot.
In the end, go Liber8. They might be the most human travellers in the end.

Teaser trailer for Gotham:
I didn't realize that guy was still alive and appeared in stuff lol. I am not sure if I am a fan of the concept though. Gordon is a cool character and all but I don't feel like seeing him without batman. They should probably call the series something like "because arrow is still airing we can't do batman".
I just finished watching sherlock... Can't wait for the 4th series. I read all the sherlock holmes books a while ago and I really enjoy all the references there. They are surprisingly meticulous. Wish I had picked up the series a couple of years ago so that the reading of the books was fresher for me lol, I would probably catch quite a few more references. I never expected the ending in the third series.
Not really sure how to react to the new "Gotham" series. Seems like there more interested in building up to the formation of Batman versus concentrating on a city that created him. Don't necessarily need backstories on Catwoman, Riddler and Penguin. If anything, create new villains for the show like they always do with characters in the movies.
In some forms it does not really make sense that the villains would actually appear at all. Didn't batman villains as we know them appear after batman himself as a response to his own theatrics? I am guessing the bad guys won't be winning in this TV series so if gordon can already beat and arrest them alongside the police then why will they ever actually need batman? At a glance it would seem like the series beats the purpose of batman altogether. It should focus on batman's non-supervillain enemies. The drug dealers, smugglers and such things. Maybe the penguin would make sense but not poison ivy, catwoman or whatnot....
If you want to do a tv serie about a normal human, do it about Alfred instead of Gordon. Gordon is an "uncool" character: the grumpy powerless captain.
And then there is Alfred. Someone who did something like this:
Case closed: Alfred for the win

Thats not actually a bad idea.... In the nolan movies alfred was implied to be more badass than batman himself in his younger days and from what I can find online he was a british secret agent before being a butler. I don't think there is a story that really goes in depth regarding his past so far so seeing a series of him as some sort of james bond that fights batman style supervillains for the queen would not be that bad a plot.
