  1. As a long time heretic, I loved "The Door" They confirmed 2 points (at least for the show) 1. they showed the CotF made the WW. 2. In spite of 1001 telling Bran he couldn't interact w/ the past, they showed that he could. Best of all, its come out that this is one of 3 twist that GRRM has given them.
  2. 10, it only for how much better I thought this ep was compared to the rest of the season so far. Things happened, Plot lines moved forward, and best of all, parts of so called Heresy was confirmed
  3. 1. I knew it would be Jay under the mask (didn't know it would be Daddy's Doppel, but should have) 2. After all season, the wraites get Zoom? WTF? 3. the best storyline they had going at the end of the season would/should/could have been Kid Flash/ Jessie Quick, and they didn't pull the F-ing trigger.
  4. @Nissa, Keep reading. There is always more to this series, then most of us see the 1st time. This whole storyline centered around WF at that point of the books, has quite a lot of things happening. This thread really should be posted on the still reading section.
  5. I give it a 5 as in very average. That is mostly because I hated the 2 ep before. I get the feeling they are doing 2 things this season, and only 2 things 1. They are pretty much burning away/blowing up in storyline that is not directly involved in the story they want to tell. Some of this is because like GRRM, they had too many storyline going and the rest because they have backed their selves in to a corner w/ some of the characters being completely in the wrong place to do anything w/ the main story from the book. 2. I think they are stalling, until GRRM gets the next book out. Why else would they go back and add the Iron Is. storylines back in, after dropped them the last couple seasons.
  6. I think the final season has started off strong. W/ its track record I am really hoping for a great season and final ep. I think its funny as hell that its season prem, drew more then Limitless season final ep. No disrespect for Limitless, which I often enjoy, even thou I hated the movie.
  7. About 18 months ago, the powers that be at SyFy decided that they needed a new image, that they had lost most of their core audience over the last 10 years, because they were mostly making cheap crappy shows, since they change they rebranded them selves as SyFy. They announced 4 or 5 major projects, and they also have given the axe to shows to some of the cheaper shows like Haven, who was canceled even before its latest/last season started to air. The first 2 shows of the "New Image" aired this week. The mini series "Childhood's End" and "The Expanse"( I would give CE a B+, and the 4 ep's on-line of TE an A) While It is fine to bring up, and state a brief OP of an SyFy show on this thread, I am more interested in your OP of the channel in and of itself, and where it is head towards.
  8. Have you read the books? the Pilot biggest problem is that it is has too many threads and characters it has to establish and not nearly enough time to do it. I think they would have been much better off making it 2 hour pilot, but I believe that got the go ahead to series before they even finished the pilot. If you read the first book, it is easier to follow what is going on, on it. As for the series (at least the first 4 ep), Wow. They have made a lot of changes, but most I understand, and get why they did that. Best example is the scene w/ Miller and Havelock where it is explained that in a few generations Belters won't look much like humans, while showing the Belters to be tall, skinny almost all have some abnormal parts them, was probably the best route. I don't think CGI or making costumes would work to show the way the are made to appear in the books, so showing it at an earlier time from was a good call.
  9. From my PoV, you said that backwards. As much as people bitch, moan, and belittle SW:tPM, it had the Wow. I went to see tPM midnight show, and then again the next morning, and loved it. It was only later that Jar Jar, an hour of Pod, and all the other little stuff began to make it hard to watch. When a I saw SW:tFA, I liked it, it really is a SW movie, but it seemed to be missing the "Wow factor". When I started thinking about each scene, I realized, it is a blatant rip off of SW:ANH. Yes there are a few homages to it, but most of the scene (and all of the major scene) were basically a reworking of ANH. What is worse, is that I didn't expect it, but should have. It is were JJ seemed to be headed w/ Star Trek, before handing it off.
  10. The revue posted on page one, is pretty spot on. It is great, but I only watch one or 2 at a time. I have seen parts of both Hunting for Pablo, and Killing Pablo over the years. This is kind of half drama, half history docomentry. I like how they have added in real pictures and clips w/ what they shot.   I would complain that the should have either done it all in English or Spainish ( I don't mind subtitles, if a show/movie is good) because half the time, the translation is either going way to fast to read, or to slow to see what is going on. My spainish is basically limilted to knowing how to cuss somebody out, and a few other things you learn from working in a kitchen w/ mostly 1st gen mexican/amercains. Even I noticed how what is said, and what it is showing said aren't the same things.   That being said, this is a very ingaging story.
  11. 1. I think they picked up the pace the last 3 ep, and added more Secondary storylines. Or I should say that they had a Main storyline, w/ some characters running a second line, instead of having each group on its own story line.   2. I can not argue w/ that. A lot of shows base everything about season 1, but then have no where to go in season 2, and then wind up running the same villian/ same type of villian the 2nd year.   3. I either fell asleep during part, or lost connection, and missed that part,when I resumed it.
  12. There are a couple good ep's, and the last 3 kind of find a grooves, but they couldn't hold on threw out each ep. If you got the time, watch it, with the pick up for next year, it might be worth it.    The last 3 ep, they kind of changed the format of the show, w/ a WTF moment at the end of each. I still think this has everything going for it, if they can make up their mind about what they want to do w/ it. As I have said many times, a lot of Sci/Fi shows takes more then a season to find their footing.   Wait! WTF Wil Wheaton? Why don't I remember that?   @RedEyeGhost  Give Z-nation a chance. It isn't any where near TWD, or FTWD, but it has a nice little quickyness.
  13.  4 (Asian guy) and 5 (young girl) linked up w/ a computer a few ep ago. 4 went thru his memories, and learned who he was, and what had happened. The girl got into "trouble" and was stuck in it, so 6 (Black Guy) went in, and at first went thru a couple of his memories, before finding 5 in someone else memory, that they couldn't figure out (it was 1"s, in which he lived the good life)     IDK if I say "really cool", but much better then season 1. They made a series based an action film, and put little or no action in the first season. They have added in action, and spread out the story this season.    Theda, I didn't think we agree on anything, yet, I too look forward to watching it on Monday( when it air's on Friday night)   I think Dark Matter was better this week then Killjoys.
  14. This kept popping up on my Netflix, as something that I would like. So I hadn't planned on watching, as it knows nothing of what I want. I watch a British show like "Wire in the Blood" and it gives me every Brit show it has. I watch the "Arn" and 2009 "Girl w/ Dragon Tattoo" get nothing but Swedish movies, that don't even have sub titles.   Well I read somewhere that this was on the under the radar movies to watch.   I loved it. While most of the idea's behind this have been done before, it seemed to be fresh view of things.
