  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. 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.
  12. "It's like a rapist with a very big Dick"? Yea it push some of the norms for USA network. Yea, only 20 are so years after NYPD Blues, and cable catches up. (not really as Lost girl and a few other shows that USA and SyFy have done have done it before, but the NBC networks seem, slower then other networks, and it still not a normal thing to see on one of them) I really, really hope it isn't all in his head. I think it should keep us guessing whether or not it is, but not be a Tyler Durden thing. I can't wait to see where this goes. I read a revue that said this character is usually the secondary character that helps the lead setting everything up. I really like the way everything is built around a guy, who isn't sure what is really and what isn't. There have been a few show that tried to do something like this but I don't think that a US show has ever made it past a season.
  13. Well about that ep, yea, some lose threads laying about, but a fun, action packed ending. I think I had the idea about what was going to happen down, and they have set Steven Weber/Brain Markinson (how many shows is he on now?) seems to be the "Bad Guys" for next year. The thing with the cure is that Ravi said there was 1 maybe 1 and 1/2 doses, and she used 2 doses and doesn't know what will happen? Clive sending someone for Major seemed like a Dick move, but I guess good Police's work.
  14. I watched the first 2 ep, and well, It sucks. If I didn't know that is about 8 mentally linked people, I would have stopped watching. It jumps from story to story, with little to no connect to each other or to individuals story lines. 1 scene is a 10 minute indebt look at someone, then next is a scene about 2 minutes of a women on drugs, just sitting and listening to music. The first ep and at least half the second is just a collections of scenes. Towards the end of the 2nd, at least, Mr. Barbar Streisand shows up and starts to try to explain what is happened. I get that it is Netflix, and they have told showrunners to use/write the whole season to tell a story, and not for just an ep. So I will keep watching, for a few more ep.
