  1. Now that I'm done with Deadwood on NowTV, I'm going start on S4 of this tonight.

    Hitman 2 - November 13th, 2018

    It was released episodically. Piece by piece.

    Hitman 2 - November 13th, 2018

    So was this a proper full game, and not another piecemeal effort like before? Does it have even a small overarching narrative (like the original, and best, Hitman 2)? Either way, utter madness to release this so close to RDR2.

    Aye, picked this up in the sale ready for when my hand has healed (if it fucking heals). It was the same price Origins was in last year's 12 days of Christmas sale.

    Yep, feeling warmth from a fire. You swear you can feel it ...

    And finished. I powered through the whole third series today. Overall I liked the show. But S2 and 3 aren't a patch on S1. And again, I can see why the show got cancelled. What a waste of Brian Cox's considerable talent. The whole ... "thing" (I defy anyone to call it a plot) with the fucking acting troupe brought the narrative screeching to a halt every time it was on screen. Their little drama was ... jesus fucking christ, it was sub Eastenders. Fucking woeful. Remove them from the show, and you lose nothing. Not a single thing. And why bring the Earps in and do nothing with them? Don't cite historical accuracy, because that would be bullshit. This show already played fast and loose with history. For a start, Wyatt Earp should have been there from the start, or at the very least shortly after. And not just to sell wood, but to strike gold; he got there too late for the gold, but foresaw the need for firewood in the winter and made money off ... dead wood. They could have done so much more with Wyatt Earp. Upon reading up on the show, I can see now why Swearengen's character in particular changed between the pilot and early episodes, and the rest of the show. Powers Boothe was originally cast, but he fell ill. Boothe was one of the best at playing absolute bastards, truly brilliant; McShane is just too damn charming, but fairplay to him for making the character his own. As for Boothe, it's yet another waste of talent; Cy Tolliver was utterly pointless in S2, and especially S3. That being said, I am looking forward to the movie. Among the returning cast is Gerald McRaney, aka George Hearst. Given this is based ten years later, and Hearst having left Deadwood, I wonder what they'll do with him. Also, with it being ten years later they can explain the absence of Tolliver. I'm curious how they're going to explain Brad Dourif's inclusion. He was fucking superb as Doc Cochran, but given the Doc's illness, how the fuck could he have survived ten fucking years? Finally, I never thought I'd see W Earl Brown play a character that even closely resembles "likeable", but he came close in this. He was great. All the main cast were superb, and it's to see them as these characters again that makes me excited about the movie.

    Hmmm. I'll admit I haven't played Moss, but thought the difference might have been the machine. Batman, for example, is much improved visually on the Pro.

    Shimmy, you on a Pro or normal PS4?

    Am I supposed to give a fuck about this old actor dying? What a pointless fucking plotline that was. No wonder this show got cancelled with utter shite like that putting viewers off. I do wonder where they're going with a young Wyatt Earp though. Edit: Just to clarify, I'm referring to an actual character dying, the old ill man that's part of Langrishe's theatre troupe. I was absolutely not referring to real actors who have died since the show aired.

    I didn't like S2 that much, but loved S1. The appearance of Tolliver promised some lovely intrigue between him and Swearengen, there was barely any. Bullock as Sheriff was, well, you barely see him actually as a Sheriff. Calamity Jane was a drunken sidenote (a real shame). I like Anna Gunn, but every time she was on screen the plot screeched to a halt. Dillahunt coming back as a new character was daft, though he was pretty good as Wolcott in fairness. The plotline with the chinamen was ultimately pointless as well. S2 didn't actually go anywhere.

    "Custer was a cunt. The End." I can see why this show got cancelled. I can imagine viewing numbers dwindled during season 2, because it just wasn't that good, with few if any coming back for season 3. Season 1 was significantly better in every respect, and S2's final episode appeared to wrap up all of its stinking shit in one fell swoop. Likely too late.

    One thing that is nagging at me a little is that some characters' motivations and relationships wildly change from one episode to the next. At one point it seemed Trixie had genuine feelings for Sol, and was even prepared to shoot Swearengen when Sol went to back up Bullock getting his gun and badge back. Now she's switched to playing spy for Swearengen and not giving a fuck about Sol. Wich is it? Also, back to Bullock and getting his things back. At the end of S1 Bullock and Swearengen's relationship appeared to be just about cordial. Beginning of S2, Swearengen's hurling insults at Bullock, and was actually prepared to kill him moments later. What the fuck? I'm still loving the show. But that aspect is nagging at me.
