AT-AT's on the beach. Looks cool. Another female lead for a Star Wars movie, also cool.

Online speculation is the imperial guy isn't Tarkin but actually a film version of Grand Admiral Thrawn from the defunct extended universe. He's not blue, but that might have been an aesthetic choice because a blue man might appear less menacing and more odd in film-reality.

Persona 5 (it feels like it's been forever since P4) and anything Dragon Quest...well, anything RPG Dragon Quest. Sadly, DQ XI isn't coming until 2017 which might give me the reason to buy an NX.

I like DC and Marvel about evenly...well, maybe DC slightly more. Anyway, Batman v Superman was a muddled mess. Too many of the characters had poorly developed motivations, several of the fight scenes were awkwardly staged, and the repeated use of flashbacks and dream sequences added further confusion to an ill-conceived plot. I liked Wonder Woman and Batman had one good action scene late in the movie which seemed choreographed straight from the Rocksteady games, so it wasn't a complete waste of time. It's not as bad as some comic book movies such as Catwoman (2004) or X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), but I can honestly say I'd rather watch any of those horrible Transformer movies than this dour, slipshod movie again. Still, I have faith that the Wonder Woman solo flick next year and Suicide Squad later this year will set Warner's DC film universe back on track. I want to believe they will, at least.

I've watched the first four episodes and will probably watch more. Don't get me wrong, it's a horrible show, but after a long day at work I don't have the energy to focus on anything so it makes perfect background chatter while I do other things. I never watched much of the original series, but enough to know that this update is practically the same exact show just nearly 30 years later. It's like they plucked a sitcom straight out of 1987 and completely ignored changes in comedy and television series structure. It's a bold move, but that's not a positive in this circumstance.

Now, let's get that My Two Dads update on the schedule next.

I'm still trying to figure out why "on fleek" became a thing. Language is a strange beast.

That absolutely made me laugh. As an O.P.M. fan l've seen that opening many times, and you captured the spirit of it perfectly. Given the opportunity, l'm sure Dan would be a hero for fun. This mash up was a special kind of awesome. Well done.

I tried this game a couple of months ago when I had time to kill while waiting for a Marvel Heroes update to download. I meant to play for 10 minutes, but wasted two hours on this game. I haven't played it since. You can't get that time back.

I was thinking about how this idea would read. Thanks for putting it together.

Maybe, I can't recall. I seem to remember seeing it on a lot of spiral notebooks owned by kids who were into metal back in the 80's.

One Punch Man is the best show I watched this year.

Hell yeah.

Above is a pretty good list. I'd have a few different choices due to taste or ignorance (I didn't see any of Sense8 for example), but I don't find anything above terribly egregious. I will say I would have swapped out Arrow Season 3/4 for Supergirl Season 1. Arrow has been off the rails since Season 2 ended.
