    This one was fun. OnePass set. Just sit back and enjoy it, and try not to think too much.

    My wife and I watched Prodigal Son before this. Thought the previous one was garbage but a lot of pilots are sloppy and messy so I was just thinking maybe the pilot was just bad. Stumptown was a much better show because of the actors. I don't know how good the series will be, but the pilot by itself was a thousand times better than the crap acting on the previous.

    I liked this one. She kind of gave me a Jessica Jones lost soul vibe, without the super strength and a little less darkly troubled. I'm in.

    Dex seems like a character that could be played by a man or a woman with very little change to the script.

    Kids, in 2019 your Aunt Robin moved and became a Private Investigator. SHIELD had been shut down by then so she was looking for work. She also developed a bit of a drinking problem.

    I think I might have liked this one the most of all the new shows I watched. Definitely a yes for me.

    There was a jump in the comic though. Just with Dex and Nina in the car, IIRC.

    I liked the pilot and didn't disagree with most of the changes from the comic. The one thing that stood out in the comic was that Ansel seemed more prominent. Everyone was asking about Ansel when speaking with Dex.

    This exactly. It's like Jessica Jones lite. Same type of character, but without the NY grit (can their be Portland grit?). I'm in for awhile, but I have a feeling I might bail at some point. Depends on how interesting things get. Colbe will keep me interested for awhile I suppose.

    Did Rucka ever say why he stopped Stumptown?

    I know I could probably just google this..... But I think asking here will be more fun :D

    Why do they call Portland "Stumptown"??
    Is it because they cut all the Fur trees down..... and now there are just "stumps" making it a Town of Stumps :D :cool:

    I'm not entirely convinced he's stopped...there were series that started in 2009, 2012, 2014, and 2015 (the last two were technically the same series, but consisted of two separate story-arcs separated by several months). It's possible he just hasn't gotten around to the next series (or that his artist hasn't been available).

    The weird thing is, I've read some interviews with Rucka recently talking about the show and the comic, and he never mentions (nor is he asked, at least on the record) whether or not there will be more Dex comics. It has to be deliberate...for whatever reason, he doesn't seem to want us to know.

    That's the explanation I heard on various promotions for the TV series. No idea if it's true though. (And I'm too lazy to find out. :))

    It was just a bit odd to see the promo cover for the next series in the last issue. It made me think that something happened.

    It would be nice to have a few more series now that the TV series is out. (But as long as it doesn't interfere with Lazarus!)

    the first 15 minutes was great, and i stuck through the rest of the first ep (rare this season), so i'll be around for at least another ep or two - it was fun.

    So, do animal rights activists throw paint at fur trees? And if so, do the green folks retaliate in some manner?

    It's due to fur? I knew it had something to do with the Wesen...

    This was by far my favorite of the three new shows I caught. I loved the cast, and the plot/story kept me interested. SP is a keeper.
