  1. Will we be saying the same thing after his 17th Avatar movie? Or not just Avatar, but simply a story we've seen before, but set in an aquatic environment.
  2. I echo your feelings about the weather. This coming Monday, it will be exactly 6 years since I started working at my company, and I recall I was going to work just in a short sleeve shirt from day one, and now I am still going with my winter coat. Just last week as we had another bout of snow, I joked with some GoT watching colleagues that's it too bad GoT didn't have a new season this April, because it would have been the first time when the words "Winter Is Coming" would have been applicable.
  3. Exactly!!!
  4. DJ Avicii, another young musician going way too soon. I didn't listen to much of his music, just a few of his songs, mainly thanks to some of the FIFA games. RIP
  5. No, it will be with a toxin for which he developed immunity over many years.
  6. Since he's the mayor and season 3 may be right after season 2, and he is a sleazy politician, too, I expect the Ghostbuster references to continue. A "yes, this man has no dick" joke would be glorious.
  7. Wait, wait, wait!!! WTF happened here? Who died and made you empress?
  8. I fully expect that guy to splatter all over the ground at the end of that sky dive.
  9. I don't think that means what you think it means.
  10. From the studio that killed Wolverine
  11. I'm guessing the cow is Syd. I don't know why David would ignore it, when he's seen her willingness to go into a cat.
  12. It's really a shame that SyFy and whoever else is involved in this has done such a piss-poor job at delivering this show to other countries outside of the US. And even their promotion of the show within the US is weak. The best show they've had in years, and it's like they actively don't want it to succeed. And now I'm more worried; while I like the actress who plays Anna, she carries a curse with her for SF shows. The chase/battle sequence in last night's episode was pretty dope. More, more, more.
  13. Because now you know the Boogey Man.
  14. Not this thread again!!! Welcome to the 3rd annual thread, where you get to list the shows you are currently watching. As a reminder, or for new people, please attempt to list only the new stuff that's airing this year, and attempt to list all the shows you watch, or at least do a top 10 or 20. Not much to list still so early in the year, but I have a few shows that are done. My list begins with: Altered Carbon - another excellent entry from Netflix; a solid SF show, with good action, visuals, acting, and interesting premise, though the plot isn't always so good, and from the show's thread here, book fans might not be too enthused with some of the changes (totally understandable) Star Trek Discovery - better than I expected, and I am cheating here, because though there were only 6 episodes (so far) in 2018, I've watched the entire first season this year; a bit disappointing towards the end, but quite entertaining in the middle Britannia - very disappointing; a show probably made by people on drugs, for people on drugs; a show about the Roman conquest of Britain, that oddly feels too British (kinda like how Guy Richie treated his King Arthur movie); I expect it will end near the bottom of my list by the end of the year Also currently watching, but too early to list: all those silly CW superhero shows, to which I've added newcomer Black Lightning, as well as Homeland, Agents of SHIELD (on break), The Walking Dead, Star Wars Rebels, and iZombie, which is starting tonight.
  15. Cary Elwes and Jake Busey join the cast for next season https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/cary-elwes-jake-busey-join-stranger-things-season-3-cast-1103659
  16. Got a few updates, too (in red): Altered Carbon - another excellent entry from Netflix; a solid SF show, with good action, visuals, acting, and interesting premise, though the plot isn't always so good, and from the show's thread here, book fans might not be too enthused with some of the changes (totally understandable) Jessica Jones - not as good as season 1, but still pretty good Star Trek Discovery - better than I expected, and I am cheating here, because though there were only 6 episodes (so far) in 2018, I've watched the entire first season this year; a bit disappointing towards the end, but quite entertaining in the middle Star Wars Rebels - a pretty good ending to this show, but there were only 6 episodes in 2018; being a cartoon for kids, it still had its silly moments The Walking Dead - oh boy, oh boy, the Negan arc is done, and I may be done with it, too. Black Lightning - the first season followed in the footsteps of Arrow and The Flash with a solid start; unfortunately, I think it will continue to follow in the footsteps of those others shows by continuing to degrade; the finale wasn't that great, and the main villain is very cartoonish Britannia - very disappointing; a show probably made by people on drugs, for people on drugs; a show about the Roman conquest of Britain, that oddly feels too British (kinda like how Guy Richie treated his King Arthur movie); I expect it will end near the bottom of my list by the end of the year The CW superhero shows: Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow - these 3, and probably Supergirl, will stay at the bottom, and I'm lumping them together because they are equally bad; these shows have always been campy, yet fun, but the writing has gotten lazier and lazier.
  17. Feige did say that some big names would voice some of the characters, where someone else is doing the motion capture performance.
  18. By the time phase 4 is ready to start, the Disney-Fox deal should be complete, and the MCU will have access to all those characters.
  19. Never crossed my mind. Thanks for that. Only 4 episodes in, but I got that feeling about the planet, too. It looks alien enough to assume it's a different planet, but it could easily be a pre-historic Earth. My bigger question is how wonderful really is Alpha Centauri that they are all so desperate to get back there, when they basically hit the jackpot with this planet. I think that promo video about Alpha Centauri is BS.
  20. You may have heard this before, but Spartacus gets much better as it progresses. I say the first 3 episodes in season 1 are clunky, with the first one down right abysmal, but after that it picks up.
  21. OK, I couldn't find the area where you can see these, per Fragile Bird's instructions. But when I went to adds, 2 categories picked my interest: "Advertisers Whose Ads You Clicked" and "Advertisers who uploaded a contact list with your info", and boy is the latter a long list. Also, for whatever reason, getting into this area requires several tries, as my phone kept running into errors. hmm...
  22. Continue   As the article says, not the first time it happened. Colorado seems to be the epicenter.
  23. You mean the battle where the Roman general decided it was perfectly ok for his cavalry to charge through burning trees.
  24. So Eugene's plan counted on no one else in Negan's group shooting a bullet before the ambush.
