  1. I agree. Although I'd go as far as saying that halfway through the season, the show lost its guilty pleasure aspect to become a truly entertaining one ! I too think someone either will bite the dust early next season either didnt survive the explosion (and Nyx is probably a goner as well)... my money would be on Six, although I'd hate to lose Roger Cross... I dont think they'd kill Portia or Boone (or, in the case of Boone, I really hope he survived, he's the highlight of the show for me !)... as for Five, she's probably okay with Truffault, she likely had an escape plan ready to evacuate the station.
  2. Vikings X: Halfway Through the Madness

    Although these two brothers were badly-written-dicks, they still gave what is for me the most memorable scene of the (half) season : the circular shot inside the shack while they're chanting.
  3. The Strain season 3 (Spoilers)

    Setrakian about Zack : "I'm very fond of the boy... should the occasion arise to save him, I will assist you any way I can." Well, you may be alone in thinking that, buddy... although I dont fault the kid-actor at all, he gave a strong performance in his brief scenes of the season so far ! And poor Quinlan, everyone giving him shit though he's probably one of their best hopes !
  4. Well, now that Killjoys has ended, this thread will probably go down quite fast ! Anyhow, it was quite a particular finale... not a bang or a blast, but full of quieter moments that made it a really strong send-off till next year. Some fantastic character beats and atmospheric moments ! I'd criticize the convulting writing of the first 15 minutes, though, I felt like they rushed way too fast on exposition and explanation that should have taken at least the double-amount of time they devoted to it. See you next week for those of you who follow Dark Matter !
  5. Pawter... dont know what to think... I somehow did see it coming but wished I was wrong as I still think the character wasnt "completed" and had more to offer the plot... As for Dark Matter, I think I'm still in the minority here, but I really enjoyed that second season so far !
  6. Figured we kinda need a thread for these ones... Out of the three, and considering Van Helsing only has a pilot so far, I'd say Wynonna Earp is the most engaging... wasnt sure at first, but the series has grown on me, mostly thanks to Wynonna's quirck, sense of humour and magnificent punchlines. Hunters was... well, 50/50... good ideas overall and some interesting characters, but it could be so much more. As for Van(essa) Helsing, well, let's wait and see... for a pilot, it wasnt a blast, and the basic trope of vampire apocalypse is sure as hell not the most original one, but I'll wait to see how it unravels, I must say I'm intrigued. Anyone interested to discuss these shows ? ETA ; if that thread had only been about Wynonna and Vanessa, I'd totally have called it "crazy chicks with guns".
  7. Why is the TV landscape so boring?

    Couldnt disagree more ! Between Black Sails, Supernatural, Rick and Morty, the Expanse, 12 Monkeys, The Magicians, Mr Robot, Sense8, Killjoys, Orphan Black, The Last Ship, The Strain, Limitless (reneeeeew !), Black Mirror or even Vikings, iZombie or The 100, just among many other (or "lesser but still enjoyable" others such as Damien, Dark Matter, Colony, Legends of Tomorrow; Netfix Marvel, Wynonna Earp, Lucifer, Preacher), I'd say genre-TV is really at a peek... but then again, what do I know ?
  8. RIO 16 - Best bits

    Okay, it's in French but the medal of humor goes to Pierre-Ambroise Boss after his 4th place at the 800 meters : the mention to his surely-disapointed cat (asking him to get his ass of the couch and take a beer from the fridge), or thanking his mates (one of them supposed to ask his girlfriend at Rio and then fearing he spoiled her if he hadnt done it yet), saying binge-watching Spartacus made him ready for the arena atmosphere and concluding all that with a very sharp analysis of his race ! Congrats PAB, you were hilarious !
  9. RIO 16 - Best bits

    That pole vaulting competition was among the most intense moments of the games, definitly !
  10. 2016 Olympics - Opening Ceremony and beyond....

    Woooow, once again the pole vaulting competition proves it can be thrilling and breath-taking as hell ! Sad for Renaud, but well, new blood and younger generations will always dethrone the kings and queens. Thiago Braz did amazing vaulting 6'03... still think Renaud could have made it, but Thiago Braz played with fire by skipping 5'98 and it paid off. That's sport and risk-taking at its most beautiful.
  11. 2016 Olympics - Opening Ceremony and beyond....

    Aurelie Muller DQed in the 10 km swimming race after landing the silver medal... there will surely be a protest from her federation.
  12. 2016 Olympics - Opening Ceremony and beyond....

    Yeah, that was impressive ! Pet peeve, but as much as I admire Mo, I wished a Kenyan or an Ethiopian had won the race just to allow them to bring at least one gold medal home, but nevertheless, Mo is a fantastic runner and totally deserved to win !
  13. The Musketeers (BBC): Season 3 will be the last

    I really wish they gave more time to the relation between Porthos and what's her name (it was a cliché French name IIRC... Laetitia ? Delphine ?), cause it felt a little forced... and I really wanted him to find some happiness, but not that poorly written. Otherwise I kinda enjoyed the finale but I saw it like two or three months ago, I should rewatch some bits of it.
  14. 2016 Olympics - Opening Ceremony and beyond....

    Damn, tried to watch NBC to see how the Olympics were handled in the US but I forgot... US TV... Nope, wont do it, cant do it... cant stand 30 minutes of ads every 10 minutes of sport (exagerating but I really have the feeling I'm not that far from the truth).
