  1. Amazon to resurrect The Tick

    I truly wish it was the cartoon version.
  2. Video Games Thread: For the Love of Zeus, Give Me One!

    ... I played MGSV as my first MGS and the plot was completely inexplicable. Butthe game play was so fun. So many ways to play and great adaptive AI. I played it for months.
  3. Update on the "Winds"

    This site holds the Internet record for people who gave up on a series 10 years ago, yet continue to talk about thatseries every day.
  4. Shannara TV series in development at MTV with IRON MAN director

    They had to leave Oregon, however, because they ran out of snacks. These were the days before social media.
  5. Shannara TV series in development at MTV with IRON MAN director

    If I only had a nickel for every time I heard this phrase.
  6. Jessica Jones (Netflix) (non-spoiler thread)

    It did not get middling reviews anywhere, although the AV club has its own sort of metric. The individual episode reviews are really for people who like and watch the show (and the reviewers are generally fans too). Theepisode ratings are on a relative scale for that show and don't mean to indicate how good the show overall is, although sometimes they can show a show's slipping quality over time.
  7. Update on the "Winds"

    It will be a real shame if some of what your guys are writing is correct, because this series had (and still has) potential for absolute greatness.
  8. GRRM fans are annoying

    Living up to your name again, Sour Billy.
  9. Making A Murderer: Netflix Documentary Series (SPOILERS)

    You are correct in that this bullet matchwas never concluded. The bullet came from a .22 -- the most popular type of "plinking"gun and the type Avery has --and the barrel it was from could have in theory fired the bullet. There was no actual matching to the gun like you see on the latest episode of CSI: Budapest or whatever they are up to now. Wasn't that conclusive. The *67 thing, incidentally, is just because Avery had a private line (because they would get harassed) and some of the calls came from this line. It appears the same to the phone company as using *67. This is a dude with about an 80 iq who has the woman coming to his property anyway. He's not that devious or bright. I believe this is all evidence the creepy prosecuterreleased to the media recently as if they just had this mountain of unused evidence that didn't appear in the documentary. It's pretty unverified.
  10. Star Wars VII - The Spoiler Menace

    None of the theories really make sense if you consider that someone has to abandon their child to horrible isolation. But there's likely another part of the story. Perhaps the mother left her for safekeeping intending to come back and something happened to her. One of many possibilities.
  11. Update on the "Winds"

    To meit appears thetone here is because he really wanted to beat the show, andhe failed at his goal.
  12. The Tattered prince (and ser Baristtan)

    Haha. Dalla? Didn't catch that.
  13. Winds update (not a blog)

    I don't. i don't like the show much, honestly, and I suspect it's going to get worse now that they only have an outline of major plot points. On the other hand, we may never see the ending. I guess 2022 is the earliest. I guess knowing what happens is something.!!
  14. Winds update (not a blog)

    Even a new author won't finish the books before the show. It's done. The thing is: George admits tostill actually working on he plot. This means, as he's stated before, the show creators know the major plot points but don't really have the story. What we can assume is that D&Dwill write all the connections and stories to get to these plot points. So what we will essentially be seeing now is someone else's story with his plot points weaved into it. In other words, a new storywith spoilers for his. Bizarre.
  15. The Tattered prince (and ser Baristtan)

    Don't know if anyone caught this in the hubbub of last nights blog post but....umm.... George said Quentyn Martell "remains a character in the books". course he also said this about the tattered prince.
