Will be watching a whole week of wrestling this week, just noticed that…

Hmmmm, well today I’m gonna catch up with last week’s Smackdown, NXT and NXT UK. Tomorrow night will be WWE RAW, Tuesday Night will be the WWE Hall of Fame show, Wed/Thursday will be the NXT ppv “Stand and Deliver” which is a two night ppv, Friday night will be Smackdown and on Saturday/Sunday will be two nights of “Wrestlemania”. Yup, that’s a whole week of wrestling for sure.

Usually there’s a lot of wrestling to watch to watch on Wrestlemania week, usually happens every year ’cause that’s the WWE’s way of building up hype and to help promote Wrestlemania.

That’s a lot of wrestling to watch this week so I won’t be streaming any movies/TV shows this week.

I like to watch the WWE Hall of Fame live show every year before Wrestlemania ’cause it’s very powerful hearing the Hall of Famer’s speeches. The WWE will be officially inducting legends into the Hall of Fame for 2020 and 2021 ’cause there was no Hall of Fame show last year due to Covid. The Hall of Fame show is back for this Tuesday night which is gonna be on Peacock on Tuesday evening so can’t wait to watch that.

So happy that I signed up for Peacock ’cause just for the hell of it, I just looked on the WWE Network site and it got shut down today ’cause of the big move.

Not sure how to watch live TV on Peacock for WWE yet but I’ll figure it out ’cause I’m still new to this Peacock thing.

More on Peacock streaming, not so bad actually…

So I took a look at Peacock Streaming earlier this afternoon and it’s not so bad actually. Some cool shows and movies on there other than the WWE stuff. Honestly, there’s not a lot on there for right now but it’s still pretty new and I’m sure they’ll add more streaming content in the future. There’s not a lot of WWE stuff on there yet but that’s because they’ll make the full move later this month, only some WWE stuff are on there for now.

Once again, I only got it for wrestling but I’ll watch some of the other stuff on it like I wanna check out the John Wayne Gacy serial killer documentary that’s on there so that’s gotta be interesting.

The Peacock app isn’t available on my Samsung Smart TV so I’m gonna have to watch it on my PS4 instead or I could watch it on my computer either way.

I’m not sure how you can watch WWE Live yet their 24/7 live TV thing but I’m sure we’ll learn about that soon. “Wrestlemania” is on for two nights next weekend. So all next weekend, I’ll be watching nothing but WWE stuff since “Wrestlemania” weekend is quickly approaching. It’s always fun when Wrestlemania season comes around.

I’m now on Peacock streaming so I can continue to watch WWE…

Well I just subscribed to the new NBC streaming service they just launched called “Peacock”…. ya know, initially I wasn’t gonna get it… I never wanted it until then I found out that the WWE is gonna shut down their standalone streaming service, WWE Network and it’s moving to Peacock permanently. I had to sign up for Peacock if I want to continue to watch “Wrestlemania” every year and other WWE ppvs. If I want to continue watching NXT, WCW, ECW and other wrestling content on there, I had to sign up for Peacock ’cause I gotta have pro wrestling in my life. Y’all know by now I’m a big pro wrestling nerd so I gotta continue to keep watching my wrestling.

Anyway, maybe Peacock is worth it ’cause they have tons of other cool TV shows and movies on there as well. I subscribe to more than one streaming service ’cause I got rid of my cable box and online streaming is cheaper and it’s the way to go nowadays.

Now I can start watching the hit show “Yellowstone” which stars Kevin Costner… I’ve heard great things about that show and people’s been talking to me about it so I can now start that show anytime. Probably next week, maybe. Yeah, I’m kind of a TV junkie admittedly but I only watch TV at night and not during the day.

I had to sign up for Peacock for WWE Network alone. I hate and despise NBC so much so I hated to get it but man, I had to get it for wrestling, ya know? Had no choice.

I’m new to this Peacock thing so I’ll have give it a look later and start adding stuff to my watchlist. Now I’ll get to watch “Law & Order: SVU” ’cause Stabler is back which is exciting. I used to watch “SVU” all the time, though but stopped after Stabler left. Christopher Meloni rules! Great actor!

Sly Stallone hints at Rocky Prequel series for online streaming… Cool Idea, really…

Sly Stallone just hinted on instagram that he maybe working on a “Rocky” prequel series for online streaming. It’s a pretty cool idea really and I really think it could happen. The online streaming giants would be interested in it for sure. It’s not yet known whether it will go to Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime yet but we’ll find out soon enough if it gets the greenlight that is.

I think the prequel “Rocky” series will go to Netflix possibly ’cause after the success of the show “Cobra Kai”, the “Rocky” prequel series could be just as big.

If you know Sly Stallone on how he wrote his scripts and his ideas, he always wrote them down on notebook paper. If you can read his handwriting. Sly hints that the Rocky prequel series would be around in the 60’s, around the time all those historical things were happening that Sly listed above.

Doing a little research, Rocky Balboa was 30 years old in the first Rocky movie and it was 1976 in that film… the same year the movie was filmed in. So since the prequel TV series would be taking place in the 60’s, Rocky would be in his 20’s. So they would need a young actor in his 20’s to play a young Rocky. Good luck to them on trying to find an actor to match Sly’s look and I’m sure they will find someone with no problem.

Sly’s goal with the series that he wants the show to get into more detail of all the characters that includes Adrian, Paulie, Mickey, Apollo Creed, Spider Rico, etc. All of them. So younger actors would have to play those characters too.

Will we get to see how Rocky first met Paulie? Ya know, Paulie who is Rocky’s alcoholic friend? I’m sure we’ll get to see more of Adrian’s life and especially Apollo Creed of how he got into boxing and all would be cool. We’ll get some more insight of how Rocky got into the loan shark business with Gazzo ’cause remember, Rocky was already into that before the first movie. We’ll see how Rocky first met Mickey and how he first got into Mickey’s gym ’cause we’ve never seen any of that yet. We could get more insight on the “Duke” Evers character too. There’s so many details we haven’t seen from the first Rocky. The prequel could be pretty useful, actually. I’m all for it.

The prequel series won’t go to Paramount+ or Disney+ since Rocky is owned by MGM… so Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime is probably your best bet. I prefer it go to Netflix so everyone can see it. The ratings for “Cobra Kai” is huge at Netflix so I think the Rocky prequel show will get a huge audience.

I’m totally all for it.

Cobra Kai is a pretty great show, now Can’t wait for season 4!

So I got around to finishing “Cobra Kai – Season 3” this week. It’s a pretty great show surprisingly. I’m loving all of it so far. While this is a sequel to the Karate Kid series, it’s also a prequel at the same time. I know it’s weird but in a lot of that show it shows how some characters were in the past. I loved how it shows more about Johnny Lawrence’s childhood and teenage years.

While it’s an awesome show, “Season 3” was the best season. I was impressed that Daniel Laruso went back to Okinawa in that season to reminisce the past and revisit the good old days. I just loved how Daniel reunites with Kumiko and the villain Chozen from Karate II, that was awesome and I was also more interested in how the season showed more of John Kreese’s past. It was interesting that they showed us what Kreese’s U.S. Army days were like.

While this show is a reunion of some sorts, all the characters coming back from the original films played by the same actors, will the cast from Karate Kid III and “The Next Karate Kid” return?

There’s a huge debate online on whether or not Thomas Ian Griffith will return as Terry Silver and Sean Kanan will return as Mike Barnes, the villains from “Karate Kid III”. Also Robyn Lively who played Daniel’s love interest, Jessica should return in the future too. Also will Hillary Swank who played the girl in “The Next Karate Kid” make an appearance in “Cobra Kai”??? We’ll have to wait I guess.

While most of the original Cobra Kai reunited, there’s one guy who didn’t appear yet… Chad McQueen who played Dutch in the first “Karate Kid” film. Ya know that one Cobra Kai guy with the white curly hair, yeah, that guy. Instead, they put Dutch in prison for the show. I read somewhere that they tried to ask Chad McQueen to reprise his role as Dutch but he turned it down ’cause he hasn’t been acting for over 30 years? Who knows, maybe they’ll still put him on one day. We’ll have to see but it would be cool. I’m glad Rob Garrison made appearance on the show before he passed, that was awesome.

The show is getting real good and I think Ralph Macchio has gotten way better with his acting too. William Zabka is great too, though… they’re all great but I wanna say something about Martin Kove, though, he’s still killing it as John Kreese after all these years. Kreese has always been my favorite character.

Great show so far and looking forward to more in Season 4!

Cobra Kai: How is that Ralph Macchio Never Ages???

I’ve finally started getting around to watching “Cobra Kai”, now that it’s on Netflix. I’ve watched Seasons 1 & 2…. gonna catch up with Season 3 later this week.

I must say it’s a very good show. I’m very surprised with it. Really good writing, acting and directing too. Not bad for a show that’s only a half hour long for each episodes which is only 10 episodes for each season. This show is extremely popular and it’s creating a buzz for sure. Ya know, I’ve been wanting to watch it though since it was announced but I wasn’t gonna subscribe to Youtube Red just to watch it… now it’s on Netflix, I thought I would finally start.

One thing I’ve noticed though is that while this is a continuation of the Karate Kid trilogy, I’m blown away about how all the characters are being played by the same people… but most of the cast has aged pretty badly. They all look way different now. Well, William Zabka who plays Johnny kind of looks the same a little bit but he looks way older now. The rest of the cast looks way different except for Ralph Macchio.

Ralph still looks like he’s 20 years old and his speaking voice is still the same too. Some may say plastic surgery, hair dye and bad genes but I don’t think so. Ralph just aged really well… he just knew how to take care of himself over the years. If you take care of yourself, you’ll look great when you get older. Ralph is 59 but he doesn’t look it at all. He still looks and sounds young which is great.

Ralph Macchio is still a great actor, though. He can still play Daniel Laruso really well even after all these years.

Some of you may ask where has Ralph been? Well, he quit acting in major leading roles and just been doing small cameos in films and doing other projects. He stopped doing leading roles in films to start a family and things like that. Now he’s out of acting retirement. I remember he had other great roles than “The Karate Kid”… he was great in “The Outsiders” and “My Cousin Vinny”. Also the movie “Crossroads” in which guitarist Steve Vai had a role in. You didn’t hear much from Ralph after those films.

Well in this new “Cobra Kai” series this is Ralph telling you all that he hasn’t really gone away.

I’m hoping that when this show is all done that Ralph will go back to leading roles in movies again. Maybe he will never say never.

“Cobra Kai” is an amazing show, though and it’s definitely the best show on television right now. The show is addicting and entertaining as hell. Makes me want re-watch the Karate Kid trilogy again.

“The Walking Dead” to end at a two part 11th season and will have two more spinoff shows… interesting…

As a huge fan of the Walking Dead, I’m actually excited for this. “The Walking Dead”, the AMC’s hit horror/drama show will end at Season 11 with a two part season. The final two-part season will be a total of 24 episodes.

I kind of predicted that the show will end real soon since Andrew Lincoln left and the show can’t survive without him. The main TWD show is ending soon probably ’cause of declining ratings? Probably. I think Andrew Lincoln will return as Rick Grimes for the two part 11th season, though. There will be a point somewhere in that show where Rick will reunite with Michonne, Daryl and Carol and the rest of the gang that are still left.

This won’t be the end of TWD completely, though ’cause AMC just announced two more spinoff shows. They just announced that Daryl and Carol are getting their own spinoff show that will star them so that’s a clear sign that AMC don’t plan on killing off those two characters in Season 11. Seems like Norman Reedus isn’t done playing Daryl yet ’cause he seems to love that character and is dedicated to playing that character. Another spinoff show is called “Tales of the Walking Dead” which will feature new characters and new stories.

https://deadline.com/2020/09/walking-dead-ends-norman-reedus-spinoff-melissa-mcbride-anthology-angela-kang-amc-robert-kirkman-1234573093/?fbclid=IwAR10A2Io1mVkSJ-m37mB5-H7jMfgBzEXiSY-2jmlUzKTRhzr6m8wuTw0i9E

It’s going to be interesting to see how the show is going to end at Season 11. I wouldn’t be surprised that when they brick Rick Grimes back, they actually kill him off this time… it’ll be the perfect way to end the show.

What about Negan? The character Negan played by the great Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a good-guy on the show but I think we haven’t seen the last of evil and murderous Negan. I think evil Negan will comeback before the show gets off the air. The reason Negan was turned to good ’cause evil Negan turned off a lot of fans but I loved evil Negan, though. The evil Negan was very dark and he was a good villain you really wanted to hate and despise. Evil Negan was short but I think he’ll make a true return. That should be the way the show should end, in my opinion. Rick Grimes vs. Negan the rematch??? I’m all for it. Negan tries to reform the Saviors and gets even more power.

Even though I’m all caughtup with the Walking Dead on Netflix, I’m still waiting for Season 10 to get on there. I’ll also get around to watching the other Walking Dead spin-off, “Fear of the Walking Dead” sometime.

Don’t be surprised that the rest of the Walking Dead main show could kill off more important characters like Michonne. They could finally kill of Maggie too. Aaron is another character I can see getting killed off. What about the character, Morgan? Him too… I think the actor who plays Morgan whose name is Lennie Jones will come back to Season 11, yes.

I remember when TWD started, I bailed after Season 3 and stopped watching then I got back into it on Netflix ’cause I wanted to see the Negan character. Yes, the Negan character definitely got me watching again and glad I got back into it.

New “Unsolved Mysteries” on Netflix… thoughts and opinions on all 6 cases shown on new season…

I’ve always had an interest and always been a huge fan of real true crime stories. I’ve always had an interest of it all… ya know… murders, missing persons cases, serial killers, mobster stories… I love it all… and I’m also a huge fan of the supernatural and UFO’s.

When I was young, I used to obsessively watch Unsolved Mysteries with Robert Stack as host all the time. It used to be my favorite show and now the show is back but exclusively for Netflix only with a new 15th season. I loved the old show with Robert Stack ’cause it was so scary and I love scary stuff. The dark music, Robert’s scary voice over and all that stuff.

I watched the new “Unsolved Mysteries” over the weekend, watched the first season with the first 6 episodes. I loved them all. The new season and revival of the show was surprisingly impressive and very well done show. It’s the similar format of the original show, people interview and talking about unsolved cases, scary and dark music and actors playing during scenes… except the new show didn’t have a host and no scary voice over. I kind of like that, though ’cause if they got a host and a voiceover, it would have been like Robert Stack and they probably didn’t want that. Something new and different…

Anyhow… here are my thoughts on the 6 episodes and the 6 cases so far… these are just my theories and opinions of what I think may have happened for each one so here we go:

Mystery on the Rooftop:  Was Rey Rivera fall from that historic building a suicide, accidental or a murder? Like most, I’m looking more toward a murder and the murderer is easy to figure out. I’m pointing my fingers at Rey’s so-called best friend, Porter Stansberry. No doubt Porter did it. I think there was a point where Rey and Porter didn’t get along and had a big fallen out over money or something and Porter lost it. Usually when the police wants to talk to someone in a case like this and they refuse to talk and cooperate like Porter, that always scream “guilty”. Porter did it, no doubt. Sometimes best friends don’t last forever.

13 Minutes – the murder of Patrice Endres: Patrice Endres was a young woman who owned a hair salon in a small town of Cumming, Georgia. She suddenly vanished and her remains were found in the woods by a stream. They are looking at three suspects: her husband Rob and two local serial killers. My thoughts is that they aren’t looking at Patrice’s own son, Pistol as a suspect too? On this episode, Rob and Pistol appears to be blaming each other. Pistol thinks Rob did it but Rob maintains his innocence and blames Pistol. It’s scary ’cause as Rob talks about the murder of Patrice on the show, he laughs and smiles about it. They shouldn’t rule out Pistol being a suspect ’cause he could be just as guilty as well. I don’t think those two serial killers did it… I think someone really close to Patrice did it so it had to be either Rob or Pistol. Yeah, it is possible that a son can murder his own mother, it happens lots of times in America.

House of Terror: This story is about the murder of the Dupont family in France and a man by the name of Xavier Dupont is getting blamed for the murder of the family. He hid the bodies under the house and now Xavier is out on the run. At the same time in the murders, Xavier disappeared and hasn’t yet been found. It’s been speculated that he killed himself. A murder suicide kind of thing but I don’t think so. I think Xavier is alive and out in hiding somewhere. He is out of country somewhere, no longer living in France. Definitely hiding from the law.

No Ride Home – the Alonzo Brooks story: Alonzo Brooks was a young man who suddenly disappeared after attending a house party where he got into a heated argument with a few white guys. Alonzo’s body was later found but the case was closed ’cause they can’t find any evidence of what happened to him. I agree that Alonzo was jumped by some other men and was probably beaten to death. I would think Alonzo was probably getting beaten by those guys he was arguing with at that party. There were two guys from that party getting interviewed on that episode but who knows, they might have had something to do with it. They made us believe they only saw him at that party and that’s it and they tried to show emotion but it’s easy to make people believe they’re innocent.

Berkshires 1969 UFO encounters: I’ve always believed in UFO’s and things like that so I totally believe these people and they aren’t crazy. We’re definitely not alone.

Missing Witness… the murder of Gary McCullough and disappearances of Sandy and Lena: Wow this case was something. You want a case that is a total trainwreck and that it makes you angry and frustrated, you gotta check this one out. A young woman by the name of Lena Chapin disappeared when she was 20 years old in Cassville, Missouri. She disappeared in the year 2006, which was 3 years after she came forward to Albert that she witnessed her mother, Sandy kill her third husband, Gary. Sandy had Lena help clean the place up and get rid of the body by burning it. Later on though, Lena changed her story and told law enforcement that she made the story up after she learned that her phone conversation with Albert was recorded and sent it to police. Sandy remarried to a guy name Kris Klemp after divorcing Gary even though he is no longer around. Lena suddenly vanished after she claimed she witnessed her mother killing Gary and saw it all. In 2013, though, Gary McCullough’s daughters won a wrongful death civil suit and was awarded $8 million from Sandy and Klemp. No new news about Lena since 2006 and she still hasn’t been found. Lena had a son named Colter who is probably living out there with Sandy, Lena’s Mom.

Hmmmm, wow once again. A lot of people are speculating that Sandy had something to do with both disappearances, Gary and Lena. She definitely had something to do with Gary but her murdering Lena is just speculation, though. What if Lena is still alive and out in hiding ’cause she’s scared to death of her evil Mom? Could be a big possibility and not many really thought about that. Maybe she’s just scared for her life ’cause she knows how much of a psycho her own Mom really is. Some say, Lena wouldn’t do that ’cause she wouldn’t leave her son to Sandy but she could. Don’t always assume things. It could be that Lena is still alive or she could be dead, ya never know. No doubt, though that Sandy is an evil woman and it’s incredible how she’s still out there living her life. This case is not related to Jaliek Rainwalker at all but there are a lot of similarities and totally reminds me of the Rainwalker case.

Speaking of Jaliek Rainwalker, I hope “Unsolved Mysteries” does a future episode on him for season 2. I’m sure all of Season 1 has been filmed already but we’ll have to wait to see if they’ll do something on Jaliek for Season 2 ’cause we just sent in a submission on their website so it could happen. I hope they do an episode on Jaliek in the future ’cause it’ll be cool. We’ll have to wait and see.

The new Unsolved Mysteries was surprisingly great and I can’t wait for the next 6 episodes. Looking forward to more and if you’re a Netflix subscriber yourself, definitely check it out.

Been re-watching all the Marvel superhero films on Disney plus, love ’em all…

On Disney Plus streaming service, I’ve just re-watched all the Iron Man, Thor and Captain America movies that are on there. Yup, I re-watched all 9 movies of those three characters. I love them all… they are all amazing and well-done movies but I think my favorite Marvel character of them all would have to be Captain America to be honest. I think the three Captain America solo movies: “The First Avenger”, “The Winter Soldier” and “Civil War” are all mind-blowing movies, love them so much. The Iron Man and Thor movies are real cool too but Captain America is my favorite.

I would like Marvel/Disney to continue making Iron Man and Captain America movies in the MCU but the way “The Avengers: Endgame” movie ended… I think Iron Man and Captain America are both finished making movies for good unfortunately. Without giving spoilers, those two characters are definitely done ’cause I believe Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. finally wants to move on from Marvel. They want nothing to do with superhero films anymore and want to move on to other things.

The good news though is that the Thor movies can continue ’cause the way the “Avengers: Endgame” ended is left open the possibility of more Thor movies and there is a 4th Thor movie in the works with Chris Hemsworth still playing Thor. Some of you may ask, is Tom Hiddleston done playing the iconic character of Loki??? He maybe done playing in the Avengers movies but it isn’t clear yet on whether or not the Loki character is done in the “Thor” solo films; however, though… Tom Hiddleston is still playing Loki in his original series coming out for Disney Plus. Loki is coming out with his own series on Disney Plus so that’s not the end of Loki for sure.

I used to not be that crazy about Marvel but it’s growing on me, really. I’m planning to re-watch “Captain Marvel” tonight and I want to give “Black Panther” another watch too.

Disney Plus is a great streaming service but I wish it’s got all the X-Men movies on there. They are trying to get all X-Men movies on there but they only added two of them so far. I think there are like a total of six X-Men movies but maybe they couldn’t get ’em all on there due to “rights” and all that stuff, ya know? I’m sure they’re trying to get ’em all on there but it would be nice. They don’t have all the Wolverine solo movies on there yet either and no Incredible Hulk films but I’m sure they’ll get them all on there in the future. Small baby steps, I guess.

Disney Plus is really quite impressive. Great streaming content but I won’t touch “Hamilton” and that Beyonce “Black is King” thing, I’ll stay away from those. I’ve become addicted to Disney Plus and watching a lot of stuff on there already. Not bad for a streaming service that’s $6.99 a month with no ads but I have a feeling they might raise the price in the future like all streaming services do.

Is the Ellen show about to go down because of toxic work environment? I’m not surprised her show is toxic, though…

Well this one is interesting…. it is getting out there more and more that the Ellen show, the longtime and iconic daytime talk show that it is a toxic work environment behind the scenes. I’m not surprised to see this seeing that Ellen and most of TV are very leftist people and they are very toxic people.

Now it’s getting out there that Ellen may quit the show and the show may get off the air ’cause of it all.

https://nypost.com/2020/07/31/ellen-degeneres-allegedly-wants-to-end-her-talk-show/

The Ellen Show has been on the air for like 17 years, I think so that’s a pretty long time and I wouldn’t be surprised that it’ll finally hang it up.

Ya know, on TV Ellen may seem like a real sweetheart of a lady with a bubbly personality and all that… she may seem down to Earth and likeable but behind the scenes, she’s actually very bitchy and very demanding woman it looks like. Reports aren’t clear of why the place is very toxic… they say intimidation and racism. Backstage at her shows, though, I’m sure there are lots of arguments, politics, harassment and verbal abuse by co-workers.

Being out there in the real world working may seem fun and to earn some cash and make a living but at the same time working can be overwhelming ’cause of “toxic” work environment. I’m sure a lot of people out there had jobs where it’s a toxic work environment… I know I’ve experienced jobs like that… where co-workers are nothing but assholes and mean to you and the boss is overly demanding. Yup, I’ve been there too. Admittedly, I’m not ashamed to be “unemployed” still and really quite enjoying it honestly.

The work force can be tough some times. I’m sure the world of TV can be much tougher, though.

I’m glad the show might be gone soon ’cause it was garbage since the beginning. Now if only we get “The View” off the air next. HMMMmmm….
