The Critical Drinker's review of Falcon and The Winter Soldier is essentially how I feel about the show:

Followed by Eric July explaining saying this:

Also Screen Rant's pitch meeting video on this show...also accurate

Marvel has yet to change my opinion about the post-Endgame world.

It kinda just sucks.

However, Baron Zemo is one the best characters in the MCU and the dude who plays him just kills it. Zemo and John Walker are the best things in the show.
Just finished the series, I thought that the action was great overall, storyline is typical but what else could you have done with Falcon and WS.

Watched 2/3 of those links. The sarcasm was off the charts lol. I also asked why doesn't Sam just call Pepper to EASILY fund his family business. That's a small ask for Tony Starks wife.

2nd vid, I agree too it's definitely a demotion, no one asked for Falcon to become Captain America, if anything we wanted an upgraded, new and improved Falcon. Could have just gave him the serium too.

This was an entropic inevitability and it's the reason why enthusiasm is dwindling; the inability to acknowledge the foregone conclusion of diminishing returns amongst fans.

Endgame was indeed the "Endgame". Marvel knew they would never be able to recapture that momentum after it reached its apex; time kills everything, and diehards are finally coming to grips with it.

Unfortunately we now live in a culture that engenders a propensity to fetishize liking or disliking something based solely on extraneous elements, rather than preference or entertainment value. An entire cottage industry exists these days of video deconstructions(which are admittedly fun to watch) in which the commentary amounts to: What does group A think about Title B? And how should I allow group A to influence me? Let's discuss!
Conversely, way down the spectrum of inanity: What does(Add topical issue, a dash of virtue signaling and hyperbole, stir and bake at 120 annoying degrees..) say about me and what's going on in the world?

How the fuck was marvel ever going to keep everyone happy under those circumstances? Fun is lost, honest debate is dead, and the Wokes have stolen the anti-wokes lunch money.

We're now watching the food fight.

For anyone interested in a dose of nostalgia, NM is back up. It looks like Jay put it back up last year.

If the wokes stole the lunch money, do they have all of the food? Is it all vegan?

So, I logged in and I joined that forum in 2004 when I was 19 years old. DAAMN. I'm scared to go back and look at what I was posting back then.

I had a little over 8900 posts on that forum...DAMN!

Side note: I didn't even realize the Oscars just happened. I love how the Oscars has gone from nominating films that people actually have seen to films that nobody's ever heard of. Remember that the Lord of Rings films and The Dark Knight were once the kind of films that would get nominations and even wins (Return of The King). I looked at the films that were nominated and essentially hadn't heard of any of them.

Apparently, the area that the Oscars took place in is known for having massive amounts of homeless people but they forced them to move for the Oscars by threatening to destroy their things if they didn't move. But if a homeless person plops down in front of your house or business and won't move sorry...you just have to deal with it.

I randomly checked in a while ago just to take a stroll down memory lane, Norton had to block an intrusion attempt when I accessed the webpage.
Haven't been back since.

They rolled out the red carpet to cover the brown concrete.

But seriously, i've gotten to the point of not giving a single shit about the oscars anymore. All I see are rich, out of touch people who pretend to know the plights of the average citizen while sniffing their own farts.

There's a "joke" about pundits and politicians too, but that's way too easy.

Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) movie is out as of yesterday. Pretty good overall, though it was going to be mediocre at the beginning. Love the Flame Hashira.

1 more night in Bologna Italy.
...would be a lot cooler without a global thang that completely shuts the country down at 10p

...It's a pretty country with a lot of signs about avoiding pick pockets

Welcome to europe. It's in a lot of countries. Especially cities that attract tourists. Just try not to act like a tourist and be aware of your surroundings. Oh and don't trust strangers.

Yeah, this is something that North Americans (and I assume British people) don't really have a lot of experience with. People don't really pickpocket in America and Canada and I hear that Western Europe is quite bad.

In Sweden we stayed here

In Germany we stayed here

Italy has been the best building by far...Germany had the best food and beer and activities to pass the time

Make a mental note of this and take some of @killa ideas to make me seem romantic.
