This was everybody's reaction after the end of Minoru Suzuki vs Hiroshi Tanahashi at tonight's New Japan Pro Wrestling show.

Suzuki had him beat but opted to try to end his career instead by destroying his (IRL wrecked) knee. Ref finally called it after he held him there for like 7 minutes cranking on it.

(Tana's had a fucked bicep for two years now and now his knee was starting to go, us in-the-know-fans have been begging them to put him on the shelf so he can heal but the Japanese way is to go until your body falls apart so every time we were like "okay so this is the time he gets injured and rests up" they never do it. Then they finally did it against a guy whose nickname is "The Man With The Worst Personality In The World" and he laughed like a supervillain at the end of it. Shit's awesome)

Also my guy SANADA debuted some sick new ring gear. I need that skull on the back of his vest pretty much on everything I own

Guys, brace yourselves, I know this is going to affect you deeply







Cody finally snapped and kicked Kenny out of the Bullet Club

All's not lost though







Ibushi came out and ran off the Bullet Club and now the Golden Lovers are back together. People were crying over this for real

God Bless America and God Bless Kenny Omega

Meanwhile in America



One of the GOAT WWE matches of all time on their minor league show involving this guy (and she got involved too)

I found a youtuber who screams at the top of his lungs at all the 800 One Piece plot twists and cries during all the tons of tragic moments

It's wonderful

Black Panther Lightning is doing some pretty decent shit with superhero TV (I haven't seen BP and probs won't for years, I haven't even started Phase II yet Lurking/sketchy )

Favourite thing about Black Lightning is it's reverse Peter Parker, dude doesn't want to be heroing and already gave it up years ago to be a high school principal but everyone around him is really weird about it. His ex-wife thinks he was an addict but when their kids are in trouble it's a-okay to do it, his Whister/white tech-guy almost treats him like he's supposed to save the world and glosses over his misgivings about the escalating scale of being a hero, regular people believe in him too much so they put themselves in danger thinking he'll save them.

Second favourite thing is his fighting style is sort of like Cole from the video game Infamous. He manipulates electricity to do a lot of cool shit.

Third favourite thin is musiccccccc. They took cues from Luke Cage on Netflix (or maybe it's just a regular thing for shows with black-heavy casts?) so all the music is nice.

Fourth favourite thing is the production values and they're taking themselves more seriously than the other CW superhero trash shows I watch (even though one of the principal show producers for all of them is attached). That could be gone already (I'm only on episode 4 of the 6 releases so far) but they're so far keeping themselves separate from the other Arrowverse shows (which doesn't mean a lot, Constantine was retroactively added to it after the show was cancelled and Supergirl was added to it later, the show runners are keeping it separate for now but not ruling it out) and I think it's because theme and style are very different, again close to a netflix show longeform show rather than an episodic procedural with overarching season subplots.

Fifth favourite thing is that they took an existing obscure as fuck character and did something interesting with him Nod

Last night, Netflix suggested a romcom called "When We First Met". I really enjoyed it and its take on the "friend zone". Also, time travel shenanigans.

Two major takeaways from WWE's portion of Wrestlemania weekend



SHINSUKE'S ENTRANCE

And

Our underdog Johnny Gargano



In the dying moments of Johnny Gargano vs Tommaso Ciampa's brutal unsanctioned match,a feud built on Tommaso jealously turning on his best friend and tag team partner Johnny and continually popping up to cost Johnny everything (big wins in Championship matches and eventually his job), as Johnny is about to drive a broken crutch into his Tomasso's head to finish him off, he has a moment of weakness for his former friend and the camera cut to a close-up of Tomasso's face

And it looks exactly like Johnny's signature emoji.

So if you have HBO, I would recommend the Andre the Giant documentary. You don't have to be a wrestling fan to get something out of it, the director who was commissioned to make it wasn't a wrestling fan and it turned out a lot of the stuff we wrestling fans thought about Andre was mythology he created around himself. He was a freaky-sized human being in a carnival and con-man business and there's sad stuff about his personal life and carrying around his acromegaly/giantism and it's just generally a strange and interesting life he led

Oh hey, I just watched that and really enjoyed it. Not a wrestling fan, knew nothing at all about Andre before seeing it (other than that he had a posse), but as a biography/character study it was pretty compelling.

Surprised at how moving the end was, too.
Spoiler:
Watching that last match with Hogan, the way he was barely able to move, and Hogan was working so hard to make him look good, and make it appear like there was actual physical competition going on, while taking so much care not to hurt his dying friend, Jesus. And the fact that he "never wanted to do the bad guy stuff," but he had to go out as a heel in order to give his protege/buddy a leg up and officially signal the transition to the wrestling culture of the 80s, and get boo'd on the street for the last few months of his life before dying all alone in a hotel room. Fuck. What a mythos.

Spoiler:

The Hogan match was in '87, he lived until '93, wrestled until '92 actually. It wasn't his last match, and he did turn back into a good guy a few years later, they just kind of glossed over those last few years because his last relevant years were spent as a bad guy and his last real years were spent being immobile or injured.

Well, I don't understand this waifu thing very well (I usually don't crush on 2D characters), but I absolutely love how these two are constantly going "AAAAARGH what do I do what do I do Run in circles flail " inside their heads in the last chapters I've seen. So freakin' relatable :/

The Witch was fucking incredible. That was one of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen. (Thanks for the persuasive rec, @DoubtfulGuest )

Spoiler:
Wasn’t expecting to have the tension of “is there a witch or not” resolved so early, but somehow it didn’t make it any less scary or compelling.

The first time Black Philip was on screen (that shot, holy god) I was like “man, this is a good goat actor, he’s very emotive”



... Dost like the taste of butter? Shudder

Actually, all the animal horror was really effective; when she found that hare in the goat shed I think my heart stopped. And the clacking of that raven’s beak...

Add on all the real-feelingness of it and it also wins “probably best period piece I’ve ever seen.” Strong recommendation if you can stand very minimal blood and very maximal terror.

Krypton's really coming together as far as superhero TV shows go. It ticks off a lot of Game of Thrones tropes but the mix of that and the Superman mythos (and higher budget cgi than the DC superhero shows usually get) is surprisingly working really well. I've raised my voice at at least two big plot twists, and unlike the CW shows with their 16-23 episode seasons and lots of filler to pad out the overarching storyline, this one's only set for 10 episodes so the plot is moving Nod

This week's Roseanne was funny as fuck. An episode centered around "the new Muslim neighbors."

All the Trump people are gonna hate it tho, and all the Liberal-media types will probs grumble about it because they want to hate Roseanne

This fucker right here.

This guy's got my "favourite villain" card right now.

The Voice of Rao on Krypton

Spoiler:

Imagine if the Pope got infected by The Borg, but he retains enough humanity to be mildly amused by us the same way a scientist would be amused by lab animals doing something cute.



He basically just told this fool that there is no God and that Galileo was right (if Galileo had discovered that there was a freaky space monster coming for everyone instead of just discovering that we actually revolve around the sun)
