  1. That was my meaning. Clearly, it isn't her actual daughter.
  2. The star is significant. Everything is significant. Yeah, that's not right; but that's fine. Tell him nothing. The Chinese series was 30 episodes and effectively covered just the first book. The series itself covers like, a really really long time. You know how Dune's timeline is like, 40K years or so? That's asswipe moneys compared to this trilogy.
  3. Were any of you goofy kids actually old enough to remember 1989? Yeah, it's not a modern CBM. The world is a bit penny arcade; the action is a bit stiff by modern standards; it doesn't really take its world seriously (in later films at least). but trust me, that thing went off like an atom bomb back in the day. I'll tell ya this for nothing: Everything I just wrote could easily apply to Donner's Superman. But Burton's Batman ages a hell of a lot better than Donner's Superman does. And I loved that film.
  4. Nuh uh. Communication is key. - Anyone have a guess at how many seasons this series will run? I mean, depending on what they choose to expand on or add in terms of individual story lines, they could stretch this thing out a while. I don't think it's going to be a straight 1 season per book.
  5. The... The rest does get into book spoilers I think.
  6. ...continuing from my previous observations banished to the spoiler dimension...
  7. Um, have you heard the battle theme from Flash Gordon? I stayed up late to watch the Curiosity landing "live" (time delay to Mars notwithstanding). I was living in Milwaukee at the time. I remember the day because it started with this. Less than 20 minutes from my home. The contrast between what was coming through my flatscreen at the start of the day and the end of the day... It's difficult to describe.
  8. You mean like this? ETA: It's not purple. It's lavender. And it's fabulous.
  9. Brian May has a PhD in astrophysics. Like, a real one. Not some bullshit honorary one for writing the battle theme for the Flash Gordon movie.
  10. Something tells me episode 5 consumed the bulk of the VFX budget for season 1. And the China sequences probably had a lot more than you'd think, and they looked amazing. But yeah, that chimp looked a bit wonky.

  12. Fucking nerds. You know, the Sci Fi / Fantasy / CBM crowd can be really embarrassing sometimes. Jesus christ it's been 5 years and they have an all new ASOIAF show to enjoy. An embarrassment of riches when you consider the broader landscape. Jesus, just let it go. I just finished the show and I thought it was pretty good. I've never read the books but from what I know about it, it's been pretty faithful in terms of the broad concepts and general story. Yeah. Bring on season 2.
  13. Episode 5 prologue: ETA: I'm liking the show so far.
  14. I'm doing this in bits. Between life happening and shits that is. The discussion about Paul & Leto II and the morality of the whole Jihad/Golden path business reminds me of John Wayne...
  15. It also would have looked different if Denis Villeneuve and Greig Fraser didn't film it. What's your point? How do you know they didn't use the volume for some scenes? You think they built physical sets for everything?
