I finished the season. Yup, screw this show.
I heard, much like Wayward Pines, Season 2 of Mr Robot is a bit of an oddity. It's a shame as Mr Robot at least, was interesting in it's first season.
To be fair, I did find the episodes fairly interesting to watch, the plot was just all over the place so I struggled to understand what was going on.

:(

For the record the word was “Reactions”. Which ironically my eyebrows raised so quickly in surprise I almost pulled my forehead off. I’m more of a 4-5 letter guy

I’ve decided that I’m going to marry Aisling Bea, but I don’t know how to do it. Can someone please advise me the correct course of action to take. Preferably in 3 steps or less.

Thanks

Castle Rock

Hulu has finally put out a real trailer — that is, one that gives us any sense of what the show is about — for Castle Rock. And no surprise, it looks like another mysterious and eerie Stephen King story. The show premieres on July 25th.

Batwoman is getting her very own TV show.

The CW is officially developing a series centered on Kate Kane who, in the world of DC Comics, takes up the mantle of Batwoman.
The character is set to be introduced during the annual Arrowverse crossover event this December, which was revealed back in May during the network's upfront presentation.
At the time, it appeared as though she was only going to appear in some of the other DC shows, but there are much larger plans in place.

Greg Berlanti, the man behind the Arrowverse, among many other successful shows, is developing the new DC series with Caroline Dries, known for her work as showrunner on The Vampire Diaries.
Dries is writing the script and will executive produce the series alongside Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns. Dries has also worked on shows like Melrose Place and Smallville.

The synopsis for Batwoman reads as follows.

"Batwoman revolves around Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence. But don't call her a hero yet: in a city desperate for a saviour, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope."


:lol: how sweet now SJW's have their own superhero....she better not be a TERF though.

It's really not a good sign if you have to point out a superheroes' sexuality in an official synopsis.

As much as I like Supergirl, at some point it became really annoying that they needed to remind me that every person of power was female. I mean just let it flow and don't force it. It speaks volumes that cartoon TV shows like Legend of Korra are more successful at portraying strong (lesbian) women without resorting to such cheap in-your-face PR.
