It spins me out because I saw Jessica Parker Kennedy play a naive teenager on the Flash.  She is NOT that character on Black Sails.

IMDB tells me that this person is one year younger than me.
That is too old to play a naive teenager on the flash.

I know, but she sells it.  Sells both roles really.  That is part of what gave me whiplash.

Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the originals on the new DC Universe streaming service.  None of them are great but so far I have been pretty entertained by Titans, Young Justice, and Doom Patrol.  Plus Lois and Clark!
I disavow anyone in the movement involved in any illegal,unethical, sexist, or racist behavior. However, I don't have the energy or time to investigate each person and case, and a lack of individual disavowals for each incident should not be construed as condoning such behavior.

It was good with a few WTF moments. Like the Octopus scene  ???

Not as good as season 1. It isn't a great show, but it is fun. If not a bit silly at times.

I think I'll put Strike Back here. It's a British spy/covert ops action thriller. I'm not as thrilled about it as some of the fans, but it has definite solid entertainment value. In the same vein as 24 and Homeland (though without much of the character drama of the latter). One enthusiastic IMDB poster called it "an adult version of the G.I. Joe cartoon from the 80s but in real life". I'm watching season 4 right now. Supposedly it goes downhill with season 6, when they went for a reboot.

I stopped watching after the first year. I couldn't deal with it.

It's worth keeping with after the first season, but far form the best show ever.

Seasons 2-5 are actually pretty good in the action and tension department. Very testosterone heavy though. They run around with a small bit of magic bullet armor, spouting one-liners, blowing shit up and shooting terrorists and covert agents, and then typically proceed to mate in equally spectacular fashion. And there's some intrigue. It's not always brilliant, but it's certainly entertaining in an 80s action movie or 24 kind of way.

OA Season 1 left me with mixed feelings. It was like "if season 2 rocks it, season 1 will be a genius set up but if season 2 sucks, season 1 was an equal waste." I've never seen a TV show that really required me to watch the second season for me to make my feelings about the previous season concrete. That said, I'm 2 eps into season 2. I'm enjoying it so far although it's starting to point in a kind of VR cyber crime thriller. If I recall Season 1 left us with the question of whether or not OA was just a BS artist who made everything up based on the book names on her shelf. Season 2 doesn't really much address that. We're just kinda "yep, no, she wasn't shittin' those poor high school kids".
