NeoGAF HATEWATCH DRINKING GAME
Do a shot:
- When Scott Buck's name flashes on screen, for he is the founder of this hatewatch feast; long may his television career last; praise be to his frugality and expediency
- When Ike Pelmutters name appears on screen, for he has thrust this magnum opus upon us from his throne atop Marvel
- When Medusa's hair is cut (spoilersss)
- When the Black Bolt "constipated mouthfart flips a car" scene happens
- When the show attempts a fight scene take two drinks if it uses the lowest rent choreography imaginable
- When there's bad Medusa CGI hair animation
- When a reference to the wider MCU is seen or heard because #itsallconnected take two drinks if it references the events of Agents of SHIELD, secret best drama on television for three seasons running
- Whenever someone uses powers (the budget is small, so this won't happen often)
- Whenever the word "inhumans" is said on the show, take a drink ("they said the name of the shooooow!")
- When Lockjaw shows up because he's cute and the only redeemable part of the show
Thanks to Penguin for collaborating with me on the drinking game rules and this OT!
