Oh, The Metahumanity! (May 18-22)

We're heading into a big lull here at OTH. Flash is done. Got two episodes left of Powers, and four left of Daredevil, which is really only a couple of weeks worth with everything else on hiatus. But we'll go until we can't go no more. Or until Netflix announces a release date for AKA Jessica Jones.

THE FLASH:

There is a moment in the season finale of The Flash where Caitlin Snow asks everyone else in the room what a singularity is. Superbiologist Caitlin Snow, one of the Star Labs geniuses working on the particle accelerator, had to ask the room what a singularity was.

The Sansaire

It doesn't get much more OLDNERD than sous vide cooking. Placing vacuumed-sealed food in a picro-controlled water bath in order to bring the food to a precise temperature is a very nerdy way of cooking. and unless you're a deep food nerd from a very young age, you're going to be fairly old before you give enough of a shit to get into it.

About the only upside to have been fighting a cold for the past week is that it left me a lot of time to watch wrestling. And there was a lot of wrestling this week, with a WWE pay per view, a double-length NXT, and the return of New Japan Pro Wrestling World on AXS TV. But with all that, WWE just barely ekes out the top spot with...

WWE NXT TAKEOVER: UNSTOPPABLE:

@midnight Power Rankings (May 11-14)

I know this is hella late, but I had a lot more to finish on this one before I got sick. Plus, it was a fairly shitty week. None of the episodes really shone until Thursday, the only one worth catching if it's still on your DVR. Plus, no new @midnights until the Tuesday after Memorial Day, but it's looking to be a promising week, with Marc Maron and Doug Benson coming back on different shows. Anyway, here's how the rankings shook out:

1. Mamrie Hart (Th)
2. Flula Borg (Th)
3. Rove McManus (Th)
4. Al Jackson (T)
5. Paul Feig (W)
6. Annie Lederman (T)
7. Jim Jefferies (T)

Oh, The Metahumanity! (May 11-14)

Two season finales down, one to go. Wasn't enough time to get both a Powers and a Daredevil in, thanks to my stupid cold. Luckily, I pre-write most of these as I watch them so all it takes to get them up on the site is a quick intro and proofread.

The WWE needs to learn that the solution to any perceived problem it has is not "more wrestling". There was another six hours of WWE wrestling on TV this week, and that's not counting the two hours I don't watch. So why are we getting a rush-job WWE Network exclusive Elimination Chamber in three weeks? It's not helping. Which is why we're totally starting this week's WWW with

LUCHA UNDERGROUND

Mad Max: Fury Road

It's been about two and a half hours since I watched Mad Max: Fury Road, and I'm still feeling a bit... pummeled.

This movie sets a new bar for an assault on the senses. It starts loud. It starts fast. And for the next two hours, it continues, almost unrelentingly, to be fast and to be loud. It relents so rarely to catch its breath that you never really relax, because essentially, once the opening chase sequence is complete, the movie is one long chase.

This weekend was also Get The Motherfucking Garden Going weekend.

One thing that's important to remember when considering the WWW is that my decisions are somewhat arbitrary and capricious, and the criteria can vary from week to week. Which is why this week I'm starting off with
