5 episodes in. Really good. Gripping atmosphere throughout. I have so many questions, but I feel like the show will answer them if I'm patient. Regarding the bible thing, I'm not surprised that the Nazis would make them illegal. Any totalitarian regime that aims to have the entire population serve the regime would want to eliminate any kind of competition. The commies did it in Eastern Europe.
By enough times I think you mean maybe twice. The guy has not appeared since episode 1. I'm fairly certain that the showrunners have the same confidence in their audience that the GoT showrunners have.
Except who, among the non-readers, remembers the name of Kjartan's son? Or even Kjartan's name for that matter; most people just think, that asshole who killed Uthred's adoptive family. Considering that by the end of this season
Great first episode. It had me just as giddy as the first episode of Game of Thrones. I hope it continues to deliver. Good visual effects, and though I was disappointed at first because they were doing sounds in space, I quickly changed my mind because they really added to the atmosphere really well, like the Canterbury's engines firing up, with the awesome music in the background, or the sound of magnetic boots in a decompressed area. I appreciate their effort to show the physical differences between Belters and Earthers and Martians. Based on Miller, I was expecting nothing, but I liked seeing the tall, lanky Belters. I even liked the explanation they gave for Miller looking more like an Earther. Maybe they did the same with Naomi. Now the Belter tongue is atrocious, but again, appreciate the effort. I liked that they have do all the Belter hand signals, as well. Also appreciate their effort for making some incredible sets. Ceres looks great.
Thomas Jane and Steven Strait were both good. And while Shohreh Aghdashloo seems to be the right choice for Avasarala, I'm still having trouble seeing her cuss. Her scene with the Belter was OK. Also kudos to them for putting in some known actors that died by the end of the episode. For anyone not familiar with the books, that should add something to the shock. A nod to the title sequence as well; appropriate and with good music.
I'm not sure why you hold this series to such high standards. It's a sequel to some really shitty horror movies. They fully acknowledge those movies were so bad they were more comedy than horror, which is why they made Army of Darkness and now this. Really, just enjoy the funny one liners and monster deaths.
Isn't the tower where the truck hit? I remember Spencer was on watch there when he shot the truck, then because of the impact, he had trouble getting out. I like Morgan, but I hope he becomes more realistic about things. And what now on Sam killing Judith? I hope Ron mucks up his assassination attempt.
Sorry, but this argument is not that powerful. I have never watched those shows, and have never seen the actor before. So I was pretty much expecting the same treatment as for the guy who played a veteran journalist in Daredevil.
So the American Music Awards showed a "brand new" scene during the awards. (No I did not watch that crap fest - it's called DVR and fast forward). But it wasn't a new scene, really, it was a clip or clips we've seen before (Rey and Finn running like hell with TIE fighters above), but taken from the movie as is, so with dialogue and sound effects. And then Harrison Ford introduced Pentatonix who, alongside an orchestra, sang the main Star Wars theme.
Ohio State, this is what happens when you hire Tim Beck as your OC. He didn't know how to break Michigan St's defense last year with Nebraska either. Sure Nebraska had a near comeback in the 4th, but it had to do more with their fighting spirit than Beck's skill.
