Hahaha. Its Black Mask. Black Face would see an interesting reaction.

I'm assuming you are talking about the new Marvel show Agents of Shield and not the classic show starring Michael Chiklis. Right?

Speaking of that, I tried to watch the first episode of The Wire on Tuesday. Does it get a lot better?

If you didn't like the first episode you might as well give it up.

I watched a movie that used black face, and it was really weird.

I'm not big on network television, but I'm going to give the Michael J. Fox show a watch tonight.

I saw a preview clip a few months ago, and I liked it. It had a Seinfeld, "Curb" feel to it. I hope the rest of the show is like the clip.

I was going to say keep with it, but then I just realized who wrote this.... My wife and I said the same thing and we've watched 3 more since and you start to feel more comfortable with it. I've seen some of the 3rd season and I can say at least from that, it does get a lot better.

I watched the Veep pilot from last season. Very funny, only a 30 minute commitment.

How does Julia Louis-Dreyfus get more attractive with age? She looks better now than she did 20 years ago.

Predictably, that Robin Williams sitcom is supposed to be really annoying and stupid.

I actually watched The Neighbors the other night (didn't watch Season 1) and hated it.

I used to like him, but realized a couple years ago that i actually hate him and really don't find almost any of the movies he is in any good at all.

I know, but I don't think its beneficial to look like that and seemingly make constant jokes about it in the show. I don't know how thats going to go over.

I think the goal is to kind of de-mystify the disease, not mock it. A lot of what happens in the show will probably be based on things he has come up against.

His shtick has worn really thin. I still like some of his older movies and thinks he does a pretty good job in serious/dark roles or comedies where he's not doing his thing and give him credit for his extensive USO work, but his act has never really evolved and is just old and stale.

I posted this earlier, I really liked season 1 of the Neighbors, but the premiere episode for Season 2 sucked IMO. I hope that isn't an indicator of the rest of the season.

Did you see MJF on Curb? His role there was hilarious and I'm not a huge fan of that show.

I'll be watching tonight and rooting for him. Seems like a good guy hit with an evil disease. Wish him the best in what might be his last role.

Anyone notice the voice of Michael in GTA V on SVU last night? Tiny role, but the character animation looked just like him.

is that a good thing? In this shield show, are these made up superheroes for tv or does it actually take place in the marvel world with all the big dogs?
