So I snuck the first 20 minutes or so of the first episode in while the wife was sleeping (I will have to rewatch it with her of course and that's fine, I do it all the time) and I noticed two things:

- The amount of episodes is large. I am use to the UK way of show production where you get 4, maybe 6, episodes per series (seasons). I was not expecting to have a 13 episode "part" (season). Not that that is bad. Just wasn't expecting it. I thought the wife and I could knock the 3 "parts" out pretty quick, but with three times what I was expecting, this is gonna take awhile.
I have no issues with show taking awhile
 Grin

- I was not expecting it to start off Dubbed. I have subtitles set on Netflix so when it started I totally forgot it was subtitled. I watched/listened to the first few minutes of the show dubbed as it is done in the narrative voice so there were no mouth movements to be seen  Grin (I love voiceover flicks. Like Mikey Spillane movies or any PI movie usually or the great Blade Runner ... which Harrison Ford hated that they wanted him to do the overdubbing. I think it makes the movie. Wow, sidetracked! Anyway ...) I watched it dubbed as there were no mouth movements I didn't even think about it until later.
I am a hater of dubbed foreign films, HATE THEM, so I instantly, once I realized it was indeed dubbed (like Jeff said by the way  Roll Eyes Cheesy), I switched to subtitles, my preferred way to, again, watch any and all foreign flicks. But yeah, like Jeff said the dubbing is pretty good. So good and well acted in-fact that I decided, for the first time in my life, to watch a non-English movie dubbed.

The reason? Well, here the sub-titles just led to too much melodrama in my ears. I mean, Asian melodrama has a sound profile and it takes a little to get use to, but I dig it most of the times. But daaaaamn, the way the chick talks in this ... very Telenovela'ish  Cheesy. Like where all the ladies are so over the top in their ... enthusiasm it makes it hard to watch a serious subject matter. Not that it is the norm for Spanish stuff, but mostly I guess. I do watch another Latin show on Amazon that I have discussed here (the one that is so brutally slow it is crazy) and the vocals on that are fine.

But yeah, Jeff, spot on with the dubbing here. It is good. Very good.

Wow, I'm going to watch a dubbed movie/series. That is just too damn strange.
 Grin

Edit - and I love the Dali masks!!!

I was wondering if you were still reading this or if this lateness would hit you. It is crazy to think about but I guess if it is the artist ... IF ... I guess they want the thing to look the same for the collection so they are betting on higher sales on that end and are willing to wait? If it is Johns ... well, not excuse for writers being that late is there? I mean aside from a death in the family?

Maybe it is ... oh I don't know. It sucks when it happens that is for sure.

HEY, this is not what I thought it was.
 Cheesy

For some reason I thought this was a different, American show, one I had seen the trailer for and just had no intention or desire to see. I actually have this one in my queue already and after watching the first 10 or so seconds of the trailer (and only that amount to not get spoiled by anything  Grin), I moved it up to the top of that list, even above Mindhunter that I was set to start, for I think the wife will enjoy this one more.

Thanks for the trailer(s), Jeff. I would have let this one linger back on the tail-end of my list had you not posted it.

I should have known you raving about this show just meant that it could not have been that other stupid looking show I thought it was  Cheesy and damn it, I can't remember the name, but I thought this was that.
I honestly didn't even read the part about this one being from Spain. I just knew it was that one I didn't want to see. Yep, glad you set me straight.
Heck, I would start watching right now as it is only 4:40 AM and I have nothing to do right now  Smiley but if I watch this one without the wife, mi esposa me va a matar
(my wife will kill me ... my wife is going to kill me)

Dreadstar 3-5 - This brings back my feelings of reading comics in the '80's.  Great Jim Starlin storytelling and fun characters.

The Life and Death of Toyo Harada 5 - Oh man!!  Could it be???  
Is Toyo Harada the Bleeding Monk?
Might just have to buy the last issue at full price!!

The Wild Storm 23 & 24 - The end of the series.  It was fun.  Would love to keep exploring this re-imagined world.

Season 3 was awesome.  I love these characters.  There's definitely a Season 4 (which they call "Parts" instead of "Seasons") coming as well.

Here are the trailers for all three parts.  Obviously, if you watch the trailers for Part 2 & 3 before you watch the first part you'll get a little spoiled.  Fair warning.

I watched the first episode of Perpetual Grace, LTD on the Epix website since it was free.  Loved it.  Had to see episode 2!  So I started a 7 day free trial for Epix on my Apple TV.  If I can binge it fast I can cancel and have seen it for free.  Of course, I'm going to want to keep it so I can see Pennyworth.  That's how they get ya!

But as for the show - yeah, this is right up my alley.  Kingsley is great as Pa.

I'm dammed pissed at DC. They have screwed the pooch with this character and book. From some rumor mils, fingers seen pointed at Johns, who may be too busy with other media.

I'm 4 months behind on comics, but only 1 issue behind on this one? And number 6 is delayed 3 months? And I'm sorry, not sorry, but this is not very good. I get, I think, that part of the writing is trying to emulate the original writing, where it's for children, and magical and pleasing to read. But they lack of complexity makes it boring. Mary Marvel s utter change bothers me.

I'm just cranky.

GUESS WHAT?!

I QUIT DC COMICS, 2 MONTHS AGO, AND I'M STILL ONLY 1 MONTH BEHIND THIS DAMNED BOOK! IT'S 14 WEEKS LATE!!N

DC!!! WHAT IN THE ****ING HELL IS GOING ON?! SOMEONE'S HEAD NEEDS TO ROLL!!!

Oh, and Jeff, I am re-watching the first episode now and I just want to state that there are a good amount of F-bombs. I didn't noticed them too badly at first, but not only is it in there occasionally as something one or two characters may say at times, there is also a chant that Ben Kingsley's character has that has it in there, so when he chants there is like 6 F-bombs in a matter of seconds.

It is not, say, like the Saprano's where the word is used every ten seconds or anything like that, but it is in there, so yeah, be careful as I know you will be, to watch this alone.

I know you can handle it, but the Mrs I am not sure about and certainly Hannah has no reason to hear it at all at her age, even though she hears it a lot outside of the home because society has gone to utter garbage and that word and those like it are far too common place now
