  1. Speaking of the quality of productions.. Do we know what the budget is for this series btw? I have had a really bad feeling about this show ever since the first announcements (that it might be a Hercules/Xena/Sinbad quality show). I would really like to up my expectations a bit.. can I?

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    Umm, why wouldn't/shouldn't they milk something that makes money.. which also clearly indicates audience interest. I mean.. uh. Yeah.

    Arya to become the "Night Queen"?

    While I consider myself a pessimist, I would still believe we get this 1 book. We won't see the series finished, but we will get the one book.

    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    Well, I didn't like the ending cause it was a bad one. Although by bad I mean lousy and disappointing. I'm still pretty salty at how this series ended up. I suppose Bakker can mark it down as a success tho since this was what he was going for, right? To write it deliberately in a way that allows for a ton of speculation only to reveal there was never any depth to it. I do have to admit that there was significant skill in keeping up the appearances for 6/7 books and then catching everyone by surprise by serving them a pile of shit for.. uh.. reasons. In the end though, deliberately shit is still shit.
  5. Idk what exactly is being debated in this topic, but I think best in their field by the biggest margin all time title would probably go to Phelps.

    Denis Villenueve to direct Dune

    Very pleasantly surprised to see Brolin here. I'm not so pleasantly surprised at Momoa, but I'm sure Villeneuve knows his stuff

    Counterpart Starz Series (SPOILERS)

    Ah alright, fair enough. I don't mind dark. I think it works well enough for an ending but I could just have low expectations due to a couple of really bad ones in the past combined with the fact that a few of my favorites over the years have been killed off before any resolution whatsoever. I'm also having a hard time seeing how they would progress the story from here so it would feel natural. I feel like the creators knew this is where they had to end it. The second season picked up the pace of the story quite fast from the second third of the season.

    Counterpart Starz Series (SPOILERS)

    I dunno, it seemed like a pretty decent ending to me. Not a happy ending, but not the worst place to end

    Counterpart Starz Series (SPOILERS)

    Shame theyre cancelling it but Im not surprised. Its the best show that nobody I know is watching. Im guessing theres little hope someone else picking this up either, eh? :/

    South Park: Member Season 20? [SPOILERS]

    damn this has been a pretty solid second half of the season
  11. I skipped the last season as the one before it had been terrible. Reading these posts I got the vibe that the show has gotten better again? Should I pick up this season or was the last one already better than the one preceding it?

    The Witcher on Netflix.

    LOL no, Geralt is nothing like Steve Buscemi - it was supposed to be an extreme example to illustrate how little faith I have in Cavill as Geralt. And on the second point: sure I can expect less from the show. Movies and TV shows switch around races all the time in the recent years - whether it's white washing or progressive casting. I would even say that diversity is something people should be used to expect from movies and shows nowadays. Whether they like it or not, or for good or bad, it's just here and it's not going to go away unless it really becomes bad for business. If something's a trend, then expecting it to happen is only rational.

    The Witcher on Netflix.

    As a fellow Eastern European, that would indeed have been nice. But I get it - I think that other than the squatting caricatures, slavs dont have enough obviously distinguishable features for the show to seem progressive. It may have been just as progressive as a "bame" Ciri, but it simply wouldn't seem so. And appearance matters a lot - you get the diversity praise from the shallower critics too. It's just good business. I don't think the infuriated fans will make up much of the viewer base - they're loud but not many. Also seems very odd to me that people are using medieval Europe as a basis to what a fictional (fantasy!) universe's racial mix should be. I do not see Cavill as Geralt tho. Not at all. I hope he'll be good. But I just don't see it. I'd rather have Steve Buscemi with bleached hair as Geralt.

    HBO's Sharp Objects

    I'm thinking either Adora or Amma, despite the teeth pulling fact they added a few episodes back. Amma yelling at that detective "you wouldn't know who did it bla bla bla" in that night scene seemed like taunting with something behind it. So maybe it was her (and friends). Or maybe it was the mother and she happened witness it. But that step father (Alan?) seems off too.. real guilty-like. So maybe he would fit the teeth-pulling strength criteria. That "guilty-like" demeanor could be a bunch of other things or mean nothing at all.. And so could the sociopathic vibes from Adora and that angry/jealous vibe from Amma. The white lady stuff would make a case for the perpetrator to be one of the women tho. I haven't really suspected anyone else but these three so far. I really hope the killer's been introduced already and won't be an unknown.
