Marvel's Cloak & Dagger

I think the first two episodes were interesting. So Tyrone and Tandy got their powers from an oil spill? Weird...

Not bad. They've ported the serious pacing problems over from the recent Netflix stuff though. It's almost like they were trying to make two episodes entirely from montages. Still, way better than shield/cw/gotham so far.

Well... an energy spike due to something they (Tandy's Dad and Roxxon) were doing on said platform.

Well, anything is better than Gotham.

Anyway, it dragged in places, but overall, this is coming along good so far.

I have not seen the episode yet, but I understand that their origin has some links to Agent Carter and her S2 adventures with the Darkforce, so the 'oil' might be something more exotic.

Slow going.  Awful music.

When Cloak first showed up on that Roxxon roof and we got a shot through one of the letters of the neon sign, it reminded me of the rooftop at the end of Highlander.

My interest is barely maintained thus far.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

Ep 3 fell off a cliff from the first two, which were OK. Looking like it's going to be another trite snooze fest.

Finally got back to this after getting sidetracked by Luke Cage.  You weren't exaggerating about episode 3.  It was a boring mess.  Way worse than I expected.  I might be put off catching up with it to watch GLOW season 2 or something.

I get completely pulled out of the show every time they represent her light dagger with that cheap acrylic crystal.  Lightsabers 40 years ago looked better than that.  Kids on youtube are doing much better effects at home.

If they just excised all the voodoo stuff it'd be a lot better. It feels forced and completely divorced from the main narrative to me. But at least the story's gaining a bit of momentum now.

I also think the voodoo stuff is unnecessary. I really don't know how and why it's part of the plot. Maybe because it's in New Orleans and their religious culture?

I was just catching up (obviously it's not on the top of my to watch list) and I suddenly realized who Noëlle Renée Bercy reminds me of.  I kept feeling like I had seen her before many times even though I haven't seen her in anything.  She looks like Natalie Dormer.

Except for one being black and the other white, yeah, there is a certain resemblance.

They're both apparently human... and women...

That being said I thought the latest episode was rather interesting with them running around in Ivan Hess' mind trying to find a way to wake him up.

Seemed like the TV version of a PL to me.

Power Level. Hess's mind was pretty much an AE farm in need of a nerf.
