  1. at the same time, this selection of characters is not in the same stratosphere of heroes season 1 personally, i liked lito and kala the most with capheus behind them. and wolf gang can just leave the show at any time
  2. nice work withe the op but if anything it proves that the concept of aegon, who i do believe is a blackfyre, was thought of in between asos and affc. there are no mentions of blackfyres in the first two books and the three mentions in asos are tangential and clearly only world building and useful in describing a particular circumstance, the same way that maegor was mention several times. great post but your evidence supports the opposite conclusion as you wanted it to. martin came up with aegon after writing asos (possibly while writing TSS) and thus started planting seeds in affc
  3. i accidentally watched episode 8 first. i knew what the general concept was and id heard that it doesnt make sense at first so i didnt really notice. i actually was thinking that it wasnt confusing at all........maybe 35 mins in it got to a part where it just seemed like this shouldnt happen so early and then i looked at what episode i was watching. so i went back and watched the first 3.i might have preferred 8 as a starting point. it's.....decent. i like how they weave in completely different types of stories and the cinemtography is fantastic. the contrast between the different location is far and away the best part of the show. i can't say that the characters are all that compelling though and i think it will certainly be hard pressed to make 8 interesting storylines feel complete. the one thing that kinda bugs me is the characters for the most part are just totally cool with their ability and dont question it at all
  4. It really reminds of nothing so much as the stuff that would have happened between chapters in martins first three. And a whole books worth
  5. the second one is by far the biggest slog. its really 800 pages that could have been done in about two chapters the first part of the third has a lot of the same but it does end well. i might even recommend reading the summary from the point you stopped up until the last half of the second part of the third book and then taking up the book from there
  6. "damn gina" i wonder how long they were sitting on that one
  7. yeah, that was wierd as was rosa laughing at the tom selleck bit. the whole rose/boyle plotline was not great
  8. you can do the same thing with the office. i dont dislike the first season of that but starting with the second gives you much more of a feel of what the show will be like. and the second and third seasons of both are very much worth watching
  9. its hamhanded in the same way. by using a "this is why character x is a good person" moments. similar to peralta, not that i dont like several seasons of parks. the first season was terrible then it got much better. but the thing that i like least about it is exactly the same thing i like least about brooklyn(which again i do like) and its the same thing that you dont like about how they treat peralta. tonally, if not topically. tangent what i think both shows do well is the characters that the show doesnt feel it needs to make you root for. second leads like holt and ron swanson that stand on their own without making you feel like your being manipulated. or smaller role characters, on brooklyn so so far terry, santiago, hitchcock and scully, boyle, rose. sometimes these characters switched around in parks and they may at some point do that in brooklyn too. but for parks early april and andy, sometimes tom, jerry. (and where parks goes downhill for me is when andy and april made that switch, from funny characters to characters the show felt compelled to get you to like and ship, bleh) its kinda like both shows want you to like everyone. (and to some extent create workplaces where everyone likes each other) this is all as opposed to the office which felt comfortable with having characters that could entertain you without having you like them. toby, angela, meredith, creed. and in many ways michael. and dwight above all. by being neutral about dwight, when people eventually started liking him, it was more real. by letting good/bad characters like michael and dwight grow, I at least became much more invested in them than i will ever be about leslie knope or peralta. but this is certainly true. that side of parks doesnt rub against everyone the wrong way. and if so, brooklyn probably wont either
  10. Its not consistently emphasizing it but when it does, it overemphasizes it. Goes for cheap emotion. Maybe i wouldn't have noticed it all if I wasn't so tired of parks doing things with similar technique(though not relating to homosexuality/ tolerance)
  11. yeah. i think it was at its most pronounced in the pilot, and i might not have noticed in subsequent episodes if it hadn't jumped out at my so much then. it struck me as hamhanded in the way that praks and rec often is but perhaps even more so. its not a major plot point. its just that it's overemphasized
  12. With datepalm on this one. It doesn't happen in every episode, but I notice sometimes and its eye rolling. <br /> <br /> Thought about it strongly after the pilot but decided that the shows strengths are enough to mostly ignore. But I do think they're doing exactly what dp said
  13. i though she just got her makeup done by whoever does anne hathaway theismann was clearly not up for comedy, but "who does kevin james play?" was excellent
  14. yes. i sorta agree. she can be the worst but she has her moments. when you go that big, you re going to have big misses. me too, although not consciously until you just said it. i really liked her at the beginning but lately, something was off. i think they are trying to force it. i dont think its as true of holt, at least not yet. i think it may have slid in that direction with holt, but they havent gotten there yet
