Peacemaker


Television


So as promised we get more of John Cena as Peacemaker from Suicide Squad

and honestly I don't know what to make of this. It's funny, in a sad way.

at least the Eagle loves him.

I’ve watched the first three episodes. So far, I feel the plot is ridiculous. It’s intriguing though. I truly want to see where Gunn is going with the plot.

All that said, some highlights of my enjoyment….

The opening dance sequence is hilarious.
I’m enjoying the cast and their interactions.
I’m happy to see Vigilante brought to life.
The scenes featuring Judo Master were funny as hell.

I was happy to catch that the DEO exists in this version of the DC universe.

I'm wondering where the stuff with the Dad is going. Was he in prison recently and made this gang?

Don't forget to catch the post credits scenes. They're not needed, but they're pretty funny.


plus Batmite is a real thing in this universe

way back when Peacemaker first came out, he was a product of his time. He was haunted by the ghost of his father/grandfather, a nazi who keeps peppering him with his opinion and unwanted advice. He becomes a superhero to both make the world a better place and to make up for his heritage.

But in this reality his dad seems alive. I'm going to assume he is a neo nazi as opposed to a regular one.

It looks like they’re combining the idea of Peacemaker’s original comic book father with the late 80s Ostrander-created villain (White Dragon) during his run on Suicide Squad. I always like seeing folks like Gunn make use of more obscure (or at least non-super popular) characters.

Thoughts on episode 4…..

Spoiler:
I liked seeing Vigilante kick ass in the prison scene.

I’m also liking the friendship between Peacemaker and Vigilante. Maybe it’s just me, but the actors seem to have chemistry.

Seems Adebayo is more like her mother than she might like to admit.

I love when comic-based movie and TV shows get accurate about little things. The quick shot of the White Dragon armor is pretty spot on to what I recall from the comics. I’m starting to wonder if we’ll get to see it in action.

Damnit! I was starting to like Murn. He has this “I’m getting to old for this s@++” vibe about him. And now he’s a Butterfly.

Still, from Judo Master’s rather cryptic, probably-not-final words, it seems there might be more to the Butterflies. Speaking of, I really hope Judo Master survives, because I’m starting to like him as well.

I think I preferred the delusional Peacemaker. The fact he is so efficient makes him scary. This ignorant anti-hero who needs redemption bit is tired. Like many of the jokes so far in PM.

** spoiler omitted **

Vigilante is shaping up to be the best part of PM. Though, I gotta say it makes me feel all kinds of bad to want to see Robert Patrick running around as the White Dragon. Also, Danielle Brooks is at least not as wooden as the other actors on the show. I do like her character as Wallers daughter.

Considering the recent revelations about Murn the question becomes Why? why is he so gungho to kill all the Butterflies and how dose it connect to what Judo master was going to say?

and I gotta say I am enjoying the Peacemaker vs. Judomaster thing. Hope we get more of it
Heck if they want to throw in more Charlton Heroes that would be cool too.

spoiler:
Oh, its the tired old switcheroo. The supposedly evil butterflies are actually good guys, and Murn is the real bad guy.

...What Planet do the Butterflies come from....is it Venus?

Spoiler:
could Murn...not be a butterfly yet and is perhaps a criminal caterpillar

Scarab Sages

Well, that was violently bloody, yet hilarious.

Spoiler:
I sincerely hope no one else on the team is, or becomes, a butterfly. Especially Leota, Vigilante, or Economos. I already think Harcourt might be one.

The gorilla fight was awesome. Economos and chainsaws for the win!

And, according to the end of episode preview, it sounds like we’re going to see the White Dragon suiting up. I’m wondering if he’ll eventually team up with the others to fight actual aliens.

I love that he has the one Newspaper clipping on his wall

"Peacemaker takes down Kite-Man"


I think it says something that that was Dc's second best scene involving

Spoiler:
gorilla

Dang blast it!!!

Spoiler:
I liked Detective Song. Now she’s the bad guy.

Eagly is hardcore. I’m pretty sure he munched on someone’s eyeballs.

So, if I’m getting this one right, Murn is the only “good” Butterfly.

I’m actually kind of hoping White Dragon might survive all this, if only to maybe see Robert Patrick in the next Suicide Squad movie. I’m certainly starting to think they won’t win this without his tech, at least.


Butterflies use "Truth"
it's super effective


oddly disappointed at least ONE of them didn't prove Economos right. That would have been hillarious.

Apparently, that actually was John Cena playing the piano. Cool.


Am I the only one that thinks economos has some moves in the intro?

Darn it. Pass.


Just got around to watching this and I'm enjoying it greatly. I agree with popcorn man that delusional Peacemaker was more fun, but on the whole the show still works.


should I be worried that the opening was basically a scene out of my elementary school?

Looks like we're getting close to the end...

Spoiler:
I was sorry to see Murn die. I was really starting to like him.

The fight between Peacemaker, Vigilante, and the neo-Nazis was kick ass. I should probably include Economos in that.

While I'm disappointed they killed off Robert Patrick's character (meaning we won't get to see him in any future Suicide Squad), they did now open the door for his ghost to haunt Peacemaker, which could open the door for some interesting stuff.

I loved how the veterinarians were ready to gear up and help them.

"F+%! you, Barry." I wonder if Aquaman and the lost kingdom will deal with this major reveal.

Scarab Sages

Yes, that cameo was damned hilarious. As was the Waller one.

Overall, it was a decent ending, although I thought it was visually a little dark. Couple of points….

Spoiler:
I’m glad the rest of the team survived. Especially Vigilante, as I like that character.

I love Peacemaker now being haunted by his father.

It looks like Economos is back with Suicide Squad. Hopefully they’ll do more with him in the next movie.

I’d also like to see Judo Master in the Suicide Squad.


The last episode was not as good as the rest of the series but still fun. I'm not sure I'm down with blondie getting soft on Chris, but seeing Waller get outed was fun.

This was a great show. Not once did I skip the intro, which I almost always do after the first viewing. The outtakes are worth a watch too.
