  1. HBO's Westworld(v4)- What door? [spoilers]

    So if the two timeline theory is right (which it almost certainly is), when was the last time we saw Delores in the "real timeline" (featuring the conflict with Bernard etc)? Was it when she killed that fly on her cheek in episode 1/2?
  2. Great episode! What are your thoughts on what Ford is building? Seems massive, yet no one on the show seems to know exactly what it is.
  3. I assume we're talking about the US? Electoral reform, just have the person with most votes nationwide win. Perhaps have the French system that you have a second election of no one gets the majority of the votes (in which case the two people with most votes face off). In a country as big as the US the most democratic thing would be to devolve more powers to the states and sub-state authorities, and thus bring the power closer to the people. If people see a need to retain the US as a single country, just have the federal level in charge of foreign policy and the military.
  4. While I understand a dislike for Clinton, come the fuck on America. You guys went to the fucking moon, the universe won't make any sense if you elect that simian Trump
  5. HBO's Westworld- Enter the maze [spoilers]

    Interesting how differently people think. I imagine this to be at least 300 years into the future.
  6. HBO's "Westworld" [Spoilers!]

    Quite intriguing couple of episodes. I'm hooked. Bit confused with the timeline though. What do the guests do while the hosts are reset at the end of the day? Thought maybe they leave the park and arrive back on the train again the next morning but Ed Harris seems to remain there constantly. But I guess it'll all be answered.
  7. Stranger Things (Netflix) [Spoiler Thread]

    Damn good show this. Excellent acting and direction. They made the dark forest scary in a way I haven't experienced since Twin Peaks. It was surprisingly emotional as well. I nearly tore up when the Moby song started playing in the last episode. It wasn't without its flaws though. I found it weird that the government (who we saw early was capable of cold murder when it suited them), to simply let everyone go afterwards. Wouldn't they have murdered everyone to make sure their secrets didn't spread?
  8. Peaky Blinders Season 3 - Spoilers

    Another great season. Tom Hardy needs to be made a permanent main cast member, if they can afford it. I had two issues with the plot though. 1. The pedo-priest was fairly cheap and quite unnecessary (as others have said); the guy was a good enough villain as it was. 2. What was the deal with the Italian boss' wife being a former school teacher to the Shelby lads? It made zero sense to me that a London-based Italian crimelord would have married a random Birmingham schoolteacher. Maybe I missed something about that, I don't know.
  9. Episode 7 preview

    I'm think the same damn thing. Looks like the Greatjon without the beard.
  10. (Spoilers) FX The Americans v.3

    Lovely series. My one true complaint is that the man playing Stan's boss is an extremely poor actor. The guy playing Stan isn't great either, but he makes an effort.
  11. The more I think about the theory that Obi-Wan is Rey's grandfather (or perhaps father if force ghosts can ejaculate), the more I like it.
  12. (Spoilers) FX The Americans v.3

    I had totally missed that this show had come back, so I just binged the first three episodes. This is truly a fantastic show, extremely well-acted (apart from the guy who plays Stan), and with a writing that really allow the character drama room to breath and evolve naturally. I agree that Nina's story feels a bit detached, but I have that the writers will do something great of it.
  13. House of Cards Season 4: Life Without BBQ

    So I finished the fourth season. The best once since season one in my opinion. We got to see both Claire and Francis in vulnerable positions for the first time.
  14. Better Call Saul

    While Mike was right about Walt's huge ego, that quotation is wholly inaccurate. Walt actually had to kill Gus to save his and Jesse's life. And the reason the animosity began in the first place was because Walt ran over two of his drug dealers, who in turn would have killed Jesse. It all boils down to Gus ordering (probably) the murder of Andrea's brother back in season three. So Gus dug his own grave.
  15. Good episode, but was it really only supposed to be 17 minutes long?
