  1. I finally finished The Dragonbone Chair. The first third was a real slog but things did improve as the novel went along. I will probably continue with reading the series but I'm not expecting anything really amazing. GRRM certainly seemed to mine this series for a few ideas! Now onto Winton's The Shepherd's Hut.

    People tend to have quite strong opinions about Blood Meridian one way or the other. It is the slog of slogs and not for everyone. I wouldn't persist if you didn't enjoy the first third. It's not as if it changes much from there.

  4. Yeah, I'm not convinced that the show is that great without the Chuck-Jimmy conflict to drive it along. I don't care enough about Nacho for the Cartel storyline to be that interesting, particularly when we know what happens to Gus, Mike and the Salamancas.
  5. is furious at the lack of posting in the Aussies thread!

    Luce, you should post this in the Aussiecon or Aussies thread (or just start a new thread in the BwB subforum), because not many of us check this Introductions thread regularly. You should be able to get Cam, Jebus and Chris to come along as well as Inquisitor.

    Hey Inquisitor. I was at the con as well, but never got the chance to meet you that night at La Camera. Welcome to the Board nonetheless :cheers:.
  20. is eating churros and basking in World Cup glory

  21. I have been trying to find some info on this as well ambryi, but at this stage there has been no word on a sale to an Australian network (AFAIK anyway). In all likelihood though, it will end up on Showcase (i.e. Foxtel) probably 6-12 months after it is shown in the States.

  23. For what it's worth, I just wanted to extend my congratulations to Dave and Dan. I really don't think the casting process could have proceeded any better, and it was great to see that notice was taken of the many casting suggestions that were floated on the board. Best of luck for the months ahead :cheers:
  24. Bring it on Holland!

    Ignore the first goal, that was an aberration ;). It's the second two goals that mattered.

    Looking forward to a repeat tomorrow. Be there or be square Exa...
