Ugh, interacting with hardcore TNA fans on the internet makes my brain meats hurt.

New season of Ninja Turtles is off to a pretty good start. Not amazing but still a very fun episode. I think Seth Green could do well as Leonardo as long as his performance stays as generic and stoic as possible which befits the character. Raphael is still my favorite even though he kind of gets jobbed out in the episode.

Still watching Terraformars. It seems fine, I just think maybe Attack on Titan has poisoned the well for me on enjoying these sort of horror action shows. The censoring is pretty hardcore so I might have to just stop watching until some sort of disc set gets released. Other than those shows and One Piece it's kind of a drought as far as cartoon watching goes.

Do yourself a favor never watch this or even contemplate watching it. This should only be playing on your TV in the background as you fasten the noose on the rafters.

Oh man, this looks almost too terrible NOT to watch. Looks as though they should've called it Midriff: The Animation.

I think Naomi might be my favorite Diva. She is fun to watch in the ring and she's rather easy on the eyes. I like Paige a lot too who has had some of her best matches on the main show with Naomi in my opinion. Paige's finishers look even more impressive since Naomi's one of the heavier Divas (in all the right places! Up top fellas!). I don't watch Total Divas so her character is kind of paper thin to me. I almost would want her to go to NXT to develop something more entertaining. Speaking of NXT I like how Bailey's charisma kind of won over Charlotte at the end of their match. Bailey comes across as a gimmick that I wouldn't be into but I get warm fuzzies when I think of friendship based wrestling.

And people please stop comparing wrestling to anime. Anime has a way better handle on their story lines and characters than wrestling ever has. Even the ones that are unwatchable trash.

I don't mean to blow anyone's mind here but Impact was fucking atrocious this week. Weird right? But seriously this has been some of the weakest booking they've done in a long time. Almost all of the matches were poor to mediocre and the promos were god awful. Ugh I need to stop watching this shit but I can't look away from this train wreck.

IMO Impact has consistently been better than Raw for the past 2-3 months or so, but I agree, last night's show wasn't great.

I'm somewhat with you there which is why the latest one was so disappointing. Has Bobby Roooo ever been good on the mic? He sometimes makes Randy Orton's promos seem almost exciting by comparison.

This is a terrible idea for any year. At least it is if you don't work out of your house. No human brain should be exposed to so many creature features or ghost stories with such frequency. Whatever makes you happy Tricky. Good luck making it to Halloween with your wits intact.

I hadn't thought to play or replay anything thematically tied to the holiday. Maybe something like Dead Space 2, Last of Us, or XCOM: Enemy Within. I've yet to play the second season of Walking Dead so maybe it's the month to get that done.

Raw wasn't great but it feels somewhat better than it has been. I'm sort of excited because all of my favorite characters are seemingly going in a better direction. The Rollins/ Ambrose feud remains the best thing on the card, Cesaro is killing it in the ring, and Miz/ Mizdow are brilliant. I'm also interested to see the path Luke Harper takes after those vignettes. He is hands down my favorite guy associated with the Wyatts being an all around great athlete, character, and performer.

Everything else on Raw...I don't know man. They just seem to mess every angle they possibly can. And the Divas wrestling is back to me not giving a fuck. I sort of don't want Tyson Kidd to get moved up to the main show. They have a horrible track record of messing up with these NXT guys. Maybe he's a better fit with the weird kayfabe in something like Total Divas but I wouldn't know because I don't watch it.

Thinking about going to PWG in October. It's literally walking distance from my place. Not sure that any of my friends would be willing to go to that.

Am I the only one who thinks that the announcers are the biggest problem with wrestling today? I mean if they sound like they don't care what's going on in the ring how am I supposed to? The actual wrestling part is as good as it's ever been. Just needs better buildup.

The announcers are the worst part about the WWE, easily, I don't think there is anyone on the roster worse than the announce team.

I think the heel side of the color commentary is mostly fine between guys like Byron Saxton or JBL (yeah I like JBL, even when he's terrible.) The face/play-by-play side is the rough part in my opinion. Tom Phillips is doing okay on Smackdown but he's not calling as many moves as I'd like. They really screwed the pooch by letting go of Jim Ross though I think I missed most of his final run on air. I'm really interested to see how he does on the Battlegrounds MMA PPV.

In a weird way this problem is kind of plaguing the roster in general. Outside of Dean Ambrose I don't give a damn about any of the good guys and some of the characters who should be baby faces are getting booked as heels, i.e. Dust Brothers, Cesaro, Slater Gator, and oddly enough Bray Wyatt.

Here's some fantasy booking: The Cosmic Key gets unlocked and the kayfabe in the entire roster spontaneously inverts. Now all baby faces are heels and vice versa. Brock Lesnar is now an adorable giant baby character...with a knife tattoo...
