Same.  That looks really intriging.

More in the Watchman vein, then the traditional popcorn superhero movies.

Peace.

Ditto!  It's a great graphic novel with the added bonus of Queen Maeve (the one stopping the armored car).  Also looks like they gave Starburst super strength as well from the looks of one of the promos!

I found the source material unreadably bleak, vicious, and just generally prone to squatting over and defecating on the genre it only pretends to be a part of. But the TV adaptation looks like it may back away from that enough to merely be dark. And, in general, I trust Karl Urban enough to give anything he wants to be a part of a chance. I'll probably watch it later this week (after finishing off Good Omens)

Same here. While I still enjoy some of the early exploit of Garth Ennis every time I read one of his attempts at superhero comics I feel the need to bleach my soul.

Watched episode 1.  Seems better than the comic so far.

How were Queen Maeve's and Starlight's strength scenes?

I'm up to episode 3 and I'm giving it about a 60/40 so far.  Not fantastic, but worth watching.

I'm about six episodes in, and so far I think the best female strength scene is Starlight bowling.and the dialog that occurs therein.

It's a little weird because she doesn't actually do anything superhuman in that scene.

Are you referring to the scene where she drops in front of the armored truck?

Just finished Ep3.... much better and more entertaining than I expected. But I don't think I'd recommend it to anyone but folks on SWM. 


I'm pleased and surprised that most of the super-strength scenes involve females.  

The writing is creatively over the top and a little bit insane -- ala Translucent's demise -- but that makes it fun and a little twisted from a genre perspective, and gory as hell. These superbeings are NOT superheroes. 

The possible exception, Annie/Starlight, is very likable. The connection that she and Huey seem to have has promise of being some of the stuff the SWM runs on.

It was much better than i thought. Extreme themes as expected, but aside the ultra-gory stuff I would suggest everybody.

I really enjoyed the scene with Annie January (Starlight) developing her strength by doing one-handed pullups and then moving on to lift the back of a car over her head, getting stronger, and then punching holes in a brick wall with her bare fists. This occurs early in Ep1, back home in Des Moines, Iowa where her mother keeps telling that she needs to learn to punch ALL the way through the brick wall, and not just busting up the outer half of the bricks.

This scene starts at 6:40 (right after Robin gets "splattered"  -- not even sure what to call it). 

This appears to be a departure from her description from the book where she can fly and project blasts of light.  I don't recall seeing her fly in the show, but she's definitely stronger than was mentioned in the book's Wiki. . 

Another scene with Hughie is fun where they are bowling, and she's spectacularly bad at it untl Hughie tells her to quit trying to boost his ego. On her next throw, she nails a strike with all the power of a bowling pro and then some. The ball barely touched the lane on the way to the pins. She seems a lot happier not to have to hide her abilities around him, and its a interesting development of their growing relationship.

Score one for the SWM meme of "dating a supergirl who is learning to use her powers."

She doesn't lift someone. She lifts fairly extreme weights. She does exhibit rather extreme strength while directly interacting with a man in the same episode - but her hands don't really come into play in that scene.

A "commercial" from the StarLight character endorsing a beauty product.  No superpowers, unless "cuteness" is a superpower.
