  1. Star Wars: Episode VIII predictions

    Here's a good freeze frame of the fighters people were referring to as pod racers earlier. (I claim no credit, it was on the SW Facebook page). They are more obviously a new type of fighter in this shot
  2. (Book spoilers) American Gods on Starz

    I'm very excited for this. Maybe that means I'm going in with too high expectations but all the stuff I've seen and heard so far looks good. I think they are doing an Emmy FYC the day before the U.S. Premiere where they will show some of episode one. So there may be some reactions after that.

    That's what i assumed yes. Do you read them in English? I feel like you told me this before because I remember something about weird translations. Or maybe that was on the literature forum

    Much obliged

    Hobb is in the U.K? I feel an urge to travel North... Guess that means she won't be here after the new book is released then. You know Rothfuss is, um...slow at completing his series, right?
  6. Reboot wish list - they are a thing, deal with it

    Well the Warlord Chronicles got optioned for TV, so there's some hope. I haven't heard anything about that for a while now so I guess not much is happening, but even a halfway faithful adaptation would be a great Arthurian TV show eta: woah, 2015 when this was optioned? Time flies, doesn't feel like that long ago. http://thewertzone.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/bernard-cornwells-warlord-chronicles.html

    I would be fine with a Finn-Poe romance. And it wouldn't come out of nowhere, given the way Isaacs and Boyega were together on screen. I mean that in the sense they had such a great connection. That can be played out purely as friendship or they could could make it romantic. I would find either believable, with a personal preference for the latter. Pretty sad that doing so may still be considered too "risky" though. Honestly part of me hopes Disney goes that route and to hell with the backlash. I mean, casting a woman and black man as leads didn't exactly do much to harm the performance of The Force Awakens, despite the small minded trolls reaction.

    Disappointing. More wine.
  9. The Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb

    I've just finished my complete re-read (only took a break between Assassin's Quest and Liveships). Has me ready for the next book, have some questions and ideas floating around for when I start to read. I'd like to say I'll try and read at a leisurely pace but I know that isn't going to happen

    I wouldn't say it's universal (though some industries are going to be more prone to it than others). But in a lot of cases you'd probably need to look for small businesses for the kind of workplace you want. Although I'm not so sure...are you opposed to workplace friendships? Or just the superficial relationships formed in 2-3 weeks? Because I'd say you're more likely to experience closer workplace relationships in a small business, but likely to have more autonomy and input into day-to-day activities. Whereas big businesses you're likely to have lesser workplace relationships and more defined boundaries of what you can/cannot do in your role. But I'm speaking from a theoretical perspective here. I've had jobs in the past of course but only part-time casual stuff. Though even there, working in a chain of retail stores was very different from a pub/restaurant. TL:DR - work is tricky and I don't know what I'm talking about
  11. Fargo 3: not until 2017

    Pretty much the same here. Season 2 never clicked for me the way season 1 did. Still thought it was well written and acted I was just not especially interested personally. Any U.K. Folks know when/where we can watch this? I only watched the first two seasons as they became available on Netflix. Wasn't sure if there was a channel showing it over here

    Luke and Snoke?
  13. Reboot wish list - they are a thing, deal with it

    There is a thread about it somewhere on here. I believe Wert started it. And since you are interested in HDM, I'll mention Pullman's new prequel-sequel trilogy too, which comes out in October I think

    His Dark Materials is in progress, though there seems to be a delay: http://www.denofgeek.com/uk/tv/his-dark-materials/37613/his-dark-materials-tv-series-writer-explains-delays

    I saw that Radiohead were plagued with technical issues and thought; huh I know who will be disappointed about that. Or did you mean someone else?
