Weekly Wrasslin' Wrouindup (Feb 20-22)

And THAT's why he's the champ. For at least another 10 days.
Don't know if it's something in the air, or what, but a LOT of what WWE did this week worked for me. Most of Raw, some of Smackdown, a lot of NXT. In a pretty shocking twist, 205 Live was the letdown, with one and a half decent matches and a lot of tedious BS.

@midnight LIVE Power Rankings (Feb 13-16)

Yep! That happened.
A week of all-live @midnights tells us two things. One, the show can totally be done live and be entertaining and insane. And two, they shouldn't do it more than once a year. Because the live shows really take the focus off the guest comedians and their jokes. The rankings, as a result, are even more arbitrary than usual.

Oh, The Metahumanity! (Feb 13-16)

Problem solved. NEXT!
Arrow takes an epic misstep in the midst of a pretty good season, while Powerless starts to learn how to use its powers for good.

Elimination Chamber 2017

The, um, highlight? I think?
The Elimination Chamber was a masterpiece of mediocrity. No matches from the announced card were on the kickoff show, just Mojo Rawley vs. Curt Hawkins, which I didn't watch, because come the fuck on. With one exception, nothing was awful, but none of it was great. Even two new champions didn't liven things up, and my predictions were WAY THE FUCK OFF.

@midnight Power Rankings (Feb 6-9)

Honestly, this episode was a bit of a wash.

The @midnight crew probably spent a lot of last week fretting about this week's live episodes, which explains a fairly lackluster week with a lot of weak performances. Also, they booked Nick Swardson, who dropped a "suck my own dick" callback so obvious I spent an entire commercial break knowing it was coming. Special props to first-timer Alan Tudyk, who came out strong, and Josh Johnson, who made Thursday's show watchable thanks to about three killer jokes.

The LEGO Batman Movie

LEGO Batman Movie isn't as good as The LEGO Movie, but let's face it, what is?
