  1. I mean the Belinda breakdown type of over the top. Over the top for even this show's average
  2. Feel like we'll have Russell retaliate in a way over the top escalated manner. No way he's the killer either. Building up suspense better than a lot of serious shows this one.
  3. Dear god this is hard to watch at times. Only the crazy lady and Russel remain as suspects now. I'm leaning towards the mask and gun being planted by crazy.
  4. We've been shown Lee will do nearly anything he must to get what he wants. I find it difficult to entertain the idea he'd go as far as murder though. But if the next episodes continue showing us how much of a piece of shit he can be, I wouldn't be surprised if he turned out to be the shooter. Current Lee seems too much of a wuss for it, and only resorting to manipulation and lies. From a story telling perspective though, I feel like Lee is the only one who has had any build-up towards being the shooter.
  5. Well this is better than Inhumans, that's for sure.
  6. After this ep and the last I think Lee is the likeliest shooter. The dude really is insane.
  7. man this show is so good actually. season 2 is holding up real nice
  8. Well. Episode 3 is hitting closer to the mark of "so bad it's good". It's a realistic target for the show if it keeps going in that direction.
  9. i think it was really bland. super boring. it wasn't as awful as the reviews made it out to be, but it's just so terribly uninteresting. and stupid. maybe it will pick up eventually, but i dont see how it could do that
  10. Bakker, that card! He got you good. You got bamboozled into believing the characters were going anywhere. You were tricked into believing there was any depth to any of it (you were theorizing on a Michael Bay movie, only you didn't realize it until the AMA). What's IMPORTANT is that you were forced to face your completely illogical desire to expect book(s) to have MEANING AND IMPORTANCE.
  11. While I loved the show I don't think this journey is worthwhile unless you have nothing else to watch.
  12. So uh. Was "Murakami" a comic book name to the villain? Because it reminded me of the writer so much it was a bit annoying. While they don't look similar, after seeing the name, it was all I could think of.
  13. Wasn't there a dick joke in the first trilogy while Kellhus and some two others were pissing?
  14. Finished Defenders all in a row.
  15. Oh I looked that up, thanks for the reference. I'd forgotten Bakker has zero chill. Last time he went this ham was with the whole sexism thing, yeah? I'm not sure whether you're wondering if he read it, or if he got the idea. Because as it happens, he did read Infinite Jest along the way - he wrote a review a couple of years back. Anyways onto the book itself. A lot of people here were saying how they felt the book had a number of flaws, but they ended up liking it. I am not in that camp, and I didn't like it. I said before the release, that my expectations were for this book to be like the fourth book of in the Book of the New Sun series. Not all answers clear, and not all of them explicitly there, but the series working well enough without a "clear" ending. This was not the case for TUC - not even close. But that was my bad, I should have managed my expectations better. I think the series could worked and have ended the way it did, if Bakker was better at his craft. I arrived at that last opinion after the AMA. Other than that I don't have anything to say what hasn't been said, except that for me the flaws killed the enjoyment to the point where I can say I didn't like the book. I do have to reiterate though - omfg the dude actually included a battle between internet caricatures: the redpilled MRA asshole vs a teenage tumblr girl. Yeah, the last one is a bit of a stretch, since Serwa had some good parts, but Bakker honest to god has no clue how to write women, does he. He can say it was intentional all he wants, but until he proves he can write one, I'll simply consider his claims at them being bad as intentional as this (again, after the AMA). I remember in the early-access threads, one of those privileged to reading the masterpiece before others said snidely something along the lines "in order to enjoy the books, some people need to know whether Kellhus pulled his heart out of his asshole on the cross". Boy o boy, must you feel like a total cunt right now. I didn't need any answers explicit.What I also didn't need was to know the author had no fucking clue what he was doing (Akka, Mimara walking around aimlessly, ending up completely useless), all the while claiming the series was to be a "metaphysical whodunit". Yeah, you didn't need a whole series to say answer the "who done it" with "ajokli done did it". Or did I miss anything? This is very much an angry rant, but I am very salty. I loved the first series (I'd call it my favorite fantasy series). I loved parts of the second, although I hated a bunch of it too. And this is the ending?!
