TV Mobile Apps

I haven’t had a cable subscription in almost two years. These shams of being able to watch live TV but you have to provide your cable subscription credentials are trash. When a cable company or even a premium channel company like HBO gives the ability to be able to use these apps via an ‘a la carte purchase then you can make announcements about these apps. Right now they’re about as useful as trash–only to be thrown away.

What more proof is needed than Netflix or even for that matter Hulu and Amazon Video for their viability?

This is what media companies should be complaining about. Their lack of progress–their ingenuity and not ‘piracy‘…

Stop making content so tied up. Cable TV subscription is an archaic form of DRM. The last frontier. Once this barrier is broken companies will see so much improvement.

Boardwalk Empire S03E01

The season begins reminding you that “Boardwalk” is violent, as if you needed reminding.

But the pace is slow and I feel its dragging its feet with plot elements from Season 02. (Spoiler alert…)

Nucky doesn’t address the land selling till almost the end of the episode and by the time the pace has picked up its over. Season premieres are supposed to set the pace for the series as well as obtain new viewers. Yes the episode was up to par but its just filler. In a game of chess it was a pawn move that took a little too long execute. 

I hurried to Watch…I should have waited till there was two episodes.

The Pong Krell Saga

So I really can’t believe that they spent like four episodes on Pong Krell vs Clone Troopers.

I seriously think they could have done it one episode. Two was a bit much–four?! Seriously?

From the moment Krell stepped in the scene I knew that he had inclinations to the Dark Side and would be killed or would be used for an episode arc. Yet the story was more Clone oriented and the various Clones striving for individuality which I do like seeing but this rendition of it I think was too typical.

Yes, there was a lot of action scenes that were great but it seems that they’ve run out of ideas.

I’d like to see more of Palpatine, more Jedi Council, more classic Jedi from the Old Republic. More Chewbacca–possibly some Han Solo. Definitely more Ahsoka and Anakin–especially where Anakin truly teaches Ahsoka. I feel there is too much implied with the both of them.

Oh and let’s not forget Season 3 Episode 14: “Witches of the Mist” ending where Savage Oppress is told that Darth Maul is still alive(?)–“that both he and his brother had an important destiny to fulfill in the galaxy.” Why couldn’t we have episodes on that?

Or what Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka make of the occurrences that happened in”Ghosts of Mortis

So hopefully we’ll get better episodes than the Krell saga. The Krell Saga is the The Twilight Saga (films) but for The Clone Wars. Madonn.

The X-Files

In anticipation for “The X-Files: I Want To Believe” due out on July 25th, 2008:

I am doing some pulls of the first season in order that I be ready.

True that it has been said that the film will “be apart from the “mythology” of the television series,” I still would like to refresh my memory of the series. As the series had just premiered when I was only six years old–plus I had just barely learned English at that point.

It would only come to barely peak my interest when it was in it’s 5th season and at that point (1997) I was preoccupied with my reading of classic literature and classical music.

I had at the time a stark stance of starting to watch something that I hadn’t watched from the beginning–of course there wasn’t any way of me researching it online at home as I wouldn’t have a computer till 1998.

The show would resurface on my radar 3 years later in 2000 almost at the end of Season 7. Some particular episodes I remember from that season: Episode 12: “X-Cops” and Episode 17 “all things”.

However due to my not having a stable internet connection (Sudan hasn’t been much help in my pulls) and speeds of 78kbps-92kbps my initial objective to watch all 9 seasons before July 25th is going really slow.

At this point I have had to download Episode 3 of Seasons 1 seven times already…I have been trying to finish the download since 5:38pm (6/12/08)…

So yeah, madonn to that…
