    What would your role be in GoT?

    Welp on a good day im 160 pounds. Im fit but not ripped so i reckon a dying soldier would work. I'm like 5'9 and not superior athletically. If i wrote myself in I'd kill someone which saves like jon snow then I'd get decapitated seconds after. It'd be glorious.

    Top 3 books of 2018

    They probably would be too but i read a ton of detective mystery stuff too but can't remember all the names honestly. For fantasy i read gardens of the moon and the first stormlight archive but didnt like either really. I also read the first one in the 2nd apocalypse series and didnt love it but i could see myself liking it, it got better near the end.

    Top 3 books of 2018

    Think i read the first law trilogy this year. That'd be number 1. Hard to pick afterthat.

    ‘Outlaw King’: Robert The Bruce Scottish Epic

    I'm assuming it at least shows the relationship between the Bruce and his wife a little more so it makes sense that she's okay with him going against the English like that.

    ‘Outlaw King’: Robert The Bruce Scottish Epic

    I liked it a lot. The acting was good. The fighting was sufficient. The only downside for me is the pacing. I feel like we didn't get the characterization we needed and it took away from it a bit. I love the story so much though that I'd still give it like an 8/10. Hopefully a director's cut comes out and maybe that improves it.

    Raymond E. Feist’s The Riftwar Saga

    I didnt particularly like all the gollum stuff but in general i loved em.

    I dont even count season 2 as true detective lol. I guess it doesn't count for the mini-series reason as well.

    Haven't seen the majority of those shows but you did list some good ones. I'm one of the few here i guess that rank GOT top ten so you're good there. I wouldnt really put comedies in my list but here are some that would be in my top ten in no particular order: Breaking bad Game of thrones True detective The sopranos The rest I'd have to think longer about. Those are clear though.

    Most filmable adaptation

    Ya that alone tells me that guy needs to stay away from fantasy. Crap movie.

    The Long Night Casts Two Leads

    I think they are doing this the right way. If you are going to make a prequel make it thousands of years before that way you have creative freedom. Everything they "know" is word of mouth or what someone wrote down which means it can actually be far different. There can be more dragons/magic/etc. They get to shape it. The weapons can be inferior and whole societies can basically be barbarians. As long as they put the effort into it I have faith in HBO making this good. Will it be as good? Nah but it can still be good.

    Raymond E. Feist’s The Riftwar Saga

    I've read quite a bit of fantasy but haven't read ASOIAF or LOTR but Game of Thrones and The Lord of The Rings filmed are both better than anything I've ever read fantasy wise. I've read Wheel of Time, The Black Company (Not all the way), First Law Trilogy, started Malazan, and tried numerous others and while fantasy is my favorite thing to read if it's adapted well I like it more as a visual medium. Perhaps my imagination isn't as good as yours.

    The Witcher on Netflix 2

    Yeah I mean if the show does well I reckon that's what's going to guarantee he'll stick around. I never really thought much of him but I never thought he was bad in what I saw either so good pick I suppose. Actors do shows and do movies and such in between anyways so I don't think it's really that big a threat. I've seen Emilia Clarke in a movie since GOT started and I know she's been in more. She was even in that Solo A Star Wars one. I know she's not the only one I'm just saying even if you are the main star you can still act in other stuff, you basically just can't really commit to another show unless it's like a mini series.

    The Witcher on Netflix 2

    I think i heard season 1 will be eight episodes so that's what 3.2 mill? That's quite a bit forthe first season before they know if they have an audience. Kinda expected though as he's the name and star of the show.

    The Staircase: Michael Peterson docu-series (spoilers?)

    Well the guy was basically paid to "prove" that he killed this chick with a blow poke even when it was clear that didn't happen. So yeah you can say he's a villain but so are most lawyers imo because they don't care who did what they just want to enforce their narrative. It's been a big since I've seen it but i was like 95% sure he did it and 100% sure it had nothing to do with a fucking blow poke lol.
