  1. I agree, the lack of Wit anywhere but in the 6D (or 7 now) has puzzled me sometimes, no one else seem to know anything about it in the rest of the world.
  2. I've been truly enjoying this season so far ! Extremis and Thin Ice are remarkable episodes, Oxygen and the Pilot are really good too... But damn, Pyramid was a complete let down, borderline lame, everything was phony and predictable, it send zero shivers down my spine, it was cheesy and unecessary complicated, I dont recall a single memorable line and the plot was kinda poor, unoriginal and mostly easy. But I'm not ranting for the sake of ranting, I love Doctor Who and I will always do, but each season, there is a traditionally bad episode... I was hoping the meh Knock Knock would be it, but now, Pyramid has taken that slot for me.
  3. Well I loved the entire season ! Emily Hampshire is an amazing actress (they all are, but she truly shines) and the plot made sense, convulted as it was, it still had a great fluidity to it. The visuals, the atmosphere brought me straight back in the story and it was a fantastic ride ! Cant wait for the final season !
  4. Kettricken smiled. Oh, Robin, thank you. Thank you, that was beautiful ! The final chapters brought many tears to my eyes, it couldnt have finished any other way and it was glorious and both heart-wrenching and warming. I really hope she will further explore the world with the new generations, and oh, I'm so glad Althea survived, she had me convinced of her death for a while (as well as Lant, but truthfully, I was less invested in Lant than in Althea). May you hunt forever Dream Wolf.
  5. (sorry for the double-post). Funnily, I've recently discovered how true that was. I've often heard that American cannot hold their liquor, but always put that on urban legends (even though the few Americans I've had the occasion to hang with before werent huge drinkers), but recently, I've met with a bunch of LA studens here in France and we went barbecue and drink for an entire night. Most Americans were drunk sleeping at 4 am... Most Europeans stood till 10 am... So yeah, if it comes to drinking, maybe we stand a chance !
  6. That topic is gold. But we all know Germany always wins in the end.
  7. Currently reading through... so I wont look at other posts ! I'm now gonna start the chapter "surprises" (just after Fitz and Bee were reunited and Per killed Vindeliar - yaaaaay !)... gearing up to face the inevitable Fitz sacrifice... or, well, it would be a huge surprise from Robin if he survived the book, but I really dont see it happening. What I really hope for is a new trilogy set in the Realm of Elderlings after that one. I fear that with Fitz gone, she'll not be interested in visiting her universe anylonger. But some (big) part of me also knows this fear is unfounded : there will be plently of materials to continue visiting the world and the new generation is definitly on its way. If I'm not mistaken, Fitz, Beloved and Kettricken are the only remaining characters from the very beginning... damn, the day Kettricken will die will leave a huge hole and I wouldnt be surprised if she'd die before the book is over... Well, anyway, between Bee, Hope (welcome to the world you !), Per, Dutiful and Elliana's sons (cant remember their names), Boy-o, Kennitson, Phron, Thymara and Tat's daughter (cant remember her name either), Lant and Spark, a potential child from Alise and Leftrin (if it's not too late)... and the "middle generation", we have a hell lot of other stories to discover, especially after the changes Bee will bring to the world (although I'm not safe for a final twist in the book that would make all my predictions void and useless).... oh and there are Molly and Burrich's sons as well, but I'm not sure what they could bring to the story. And the character I really wish to see more of is Nettle. I'm sure if she (Robin) continues developing the universe, we'll see a lot of Bee, but I'd wish to see Nettle as a major protagonist forward. Anyway, probably gonna finish the book tonight !
  8. The whole Aretuza mess from book 4, Ciri's journeys, the first encounter between Geralt and Yennefer, the time they spent at that quiet (erotic and full of drugs, cant remember the name) on their way south towards Nilfgard, Jaskier's songs and quips (it's Dandelion for you but for me he'll always be Jaskier)... and so much more ! And I hope they wont immediatly cast a teenager for Ciri. They should cast a child for the beginning of the story and let her grow through the course of the show (just saying that cause I saw a fancast of Imogen Potts as her, but she's way too old, imo !)
  9. Hey Champ ! I'm watching, but I'm careful with where I roam, I'm just at episode 7 (it was a busy week end for me)... so I'm trying not to get spoiled ! But I'll be bac after finishing it ! I love it so far ! Emily Hampshire is a tremendous actress (they all are, but damn, she shines !), the story, although convulted sometimes, makes sense, the plot is thrilling, the twists and turns pay off, the direction is great (some great visuals) and an increidible atmosphere that plunges me straight back in the show with no trouble at all ! The ambiance is so unique there is no mistaking what show I'm watching and I love it ! Episode 8 tonight !
  10. I dont think you can understand the book saga from jus the first short-stories.... the scales are really huge the more the story progress and it's a beautiful, golden, fantasy fresque. Geralt fancasting : Travis Fimmel, Mads Mikkelsen or Luke Arnolds.
  11. I cant... right now... I'm... I'm speechless ! Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! Holy shit yes ! ETA : I dont know about the english version, I read them in french and I've been told its one of the best translation of the book, but still, whatever the language, I definitly recommend reading those books !
  12. That's it. Despite the dédiabolisation MLP has gone through to make her party appear respectable, far from her father's views, the FN core is still made of a lot of dangerous and archaic individuals.
  13. Well, nothing surprising... Gutted, but not surprised... Fillon at 19,07% is the worst to swallow... as well as Mélenchon being only the fourth man. And no mention at all of ecology or culture in any speech, they dont give a single fuck about it...
  14. Got confused by the whole "last humans", "earth evacuated" thing. Didnt Eleven said that the human race never stoped, spread everywhere through the galaxy (during (and thanks to) the Apollo affair (6x01-02) ? Ten said something similar in Utopia if I recall correctly, so I never pictured an almost-moment-of-extinction for the human race in the Doctor Who universe... Or maybe this refers to the last moments of earth that we saw all the way back in series 1 of Nu-Who but I wasnt under the impression that a sole ship flew away, rather a whole bunch of them, so the whole "last humans" vibe in this episode made me wince. Or maybe, this extinction event is part of the series arc, so we'll see (but I didnt feel like it did)... ... or maybe who cares, I'm just fixating over a useless detail, this is Doctor Who, screw timelines !
  15. Kinda frustrated they didnt go with the Parson's Farewell at full blow for the closing titles, as they teased it in the scenes at the tavern with Mary... ahem Mark Reade. This music is just amazing and would have made for awesome closing titles. And... that's my one and only complaint... it was everything I hoped it would be : giving a great sense of closure, a continuity with the whole narrative, epic moments, beautiful ones, some funny ones as well, bittersweet on some regards and still managing to drop a few twists and surprises on its way out ! I'll miss this show but I sure as fuck watch it sail away with a smile on my face.
