@siarhei: Hi? I promise not to turn this conversation into something you dread. But?may I suggest Amazon Prime Video? I never run out of things to watch, because they make it so easy, (and sometimes cheap), to add services like HBO, and I am particularly interested in British sources such as Acorn and Brit TV. Through Amazon, I have about five subscriptions, whose total monthly cost, is just over what I use to pay Netflix. I like the Amazon "portal" that lets me watch any of my subscriptions and films on demand. I suggest anyone should see if Prime as a service, and portal is something they can appreciate. Wishing you the best in the New Year.???

@siarhei: Thanks for your positive response. I'll give a little rant here?, and say further. That when we look at what is popular entertainment on broadcast TV, and some movies. You have to wonder why so many people are willing, to accept the low quality of stuff thrown at them. It is encouraging though, to see how many people are "cutting the cord". The entertainment companies that are willing to offer quality TV programming, and films. Will be the ultimate winners, as will be their customers. I'm thinking about projects like "The Americans", "Fargo", and "Game of Thrones", to mention just a few offerings with very high ratings and fans.

As an older fan of SciFy, Super heroes, gaming etc. I find that the entertainment industry, is more interested in pleasing the 12 to 39 year old demographic, than older people. Who I might add, have been the original fans for much of the material that is available today. We were the "support group" that kept comic books, SciFi movies and TV series going, with our hard earned money. One of my pet peeves is the entertainment industry's, insistence of producing so many PG-13 projects. To gain as many eyeballs, and therefore revenues as possible. I know that's their business model, but I would like to see more adult offerings, like Deadpool for example. I'm so glad that the original movie did as well as it did. I think it showed that a movie aimed at adults, can be good box office. Lastly, I grew up with the original Archie comic books. I am really offended by the fact, that some production company. Found it necessary to dig up an old comic, and completely change everything about it. Why couldn't it just been a new project with a new name? The people that like the show wouldn't have cared. By the way, I think the CW show is ridiculous, but like I said.. I'm old!?

@siarhei: Right on!!?? I know that most entertainment is aimed at the 12 to 34 year old fans of comic books, video games, and super heroes. Being older, my requirements for quality productions, may be more demanding. I think most of the Netflix "Originals", are pretty lack luster. I found the Marvel series particularly disappointing. It's really sad when the actors playing "villains", are obviously more talented than the "heroes". Jessica Jones series #1, was imho, the best of all of them, except for Punisher, and I did like the interplay between mother and daughter in the second season. Lastly, I found the Punisher, the best of the rest of the series. Which is interesting, because he has no super powers. He's just a really angry guy?, that's good at killing, and has a decent moral compass.

Regarding Comics Books, and now movies, based on Comic Books. In my humble opinion, all of these companies will do whatever it takes, to keep making money. In the early days of Comic Books, the creators probably tried to have some continuity in their characters' storylines. They did it because they loved their creations, and their fans. I think it is well known, and a given. The business has changed, and most fans don't seem to care, as long as they keep getting new stories. As in the rest of the Entertainment industry. Whatever is the "flavor of the day", will be worked into the plots of Comics and movies based on Comics. If Siamese cats became a fade. Every super hero would own one, and at least one character would be created as a Siamese cat/Human superhero or super villain. Behold.. SIAMAH, her superpowers are catlike!!?

@autumnvarela: Apparently, you have no knowledge of what the game, or this series is about. I don't understand why you even decided to view it. Also, this is a cartoon.? If you want to get upset, just watch any worth while News reporting from around the world. Skeletal babies in Yemen, due to the war there. People dying in the deserts of North Africa, trying to get to Europe. If this genre of entertainment, is so abhorrent to you. I suggest that you try the "My Little Pony" cartoons, and related websites. Seriously, you should do more research before watching any kind of entertainment media.?

As an "older" person, I realize that much of the TV and films. Being offered to Sci-Fi, and Horror genre fans. Is directed towards the 12-40 year old demographic. As an adult, I would like to see more R rated films, and TV series with good acting, like GOT, Ozark, The Expanse, and Gotham (which has a really talented cast, but suffers from not being a really great or popular series). Lastly, I think production companies of current series. Tend to "pad" the basic plots, with all kinds of unnecessary, angst driven side plots.
