    Mieville made me feel empty

    I really enjoyed The City and The City. He's a really talented writer. However, I've yet to get into any of his other work because I'm not really into "fantastic" sci-fi or fantasy.

    Netflix's The OA: Part II

    This is really disappointing. I agree with the above comment about not understanding the strategy. Why produce a weird niche show like this in the first place? Also, this is a bit curious because from a cost perspective I can't imagine this show was busting any kind of budget. Half of the first season was filmed in that basement/dungeon set. Maybe Bezos and co. will pick it up.
  3. ^Thanks. Phoenix Pictures seems like a legit company, which is good news.
  4. Has this series been optioned for TV or the big screen? Just curious.

    Chances of Martin hiring a team of writers?

    Okay, to be fair, what the OP was asking about would not be fan fiction. But, I think GRRM has rejected the idea of opening up his world to other writer.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Endgame

    I've started watching Black Summer, which is brand new on Netflix. It's extremely tense from moment to moment. You're on the edge of your seat for the entire episode. It's a post-apocalyptic zombie show, but very, very different from TWD. I can't emphasize enough how different it is. Highly recommended if you are at all partial to the genre.
  7. What!!!??? Girls can't be Kannigats!!!! I'm done. The show is completely ruined now.
  8. Isn't Rick supposedly with the commonwealth?
  9. At least they didn't leave us with a god awful cliffhanger this time. I'm really tired of that. I know tv shows have been ending seasons with cliffhangers forever, but I feel like it's disrespectful of the audience. A season of a show should tell something like a complete story.

    Netflix's The OA: Part II

    I finished season 2 last night and absolutely loved it. I hope they don't make us wait two years for season 3.

    MLB Offseason 2018: Harper, Your Herald Boras Sings

    Yeah, it's pretty shitty.

    MLB Offseason 2018: Harper, Your Herald Boras Sings

    I think it's just an MLB thing. Maybe it could be challenged by going after baseball's anti-trust exemption, but does anyone in Congress really want to get on that train?

    MLB Offseason 2018: Harper, Your Herald Boras Sings

    The individual clubs must like it though. I wonder when/if Congress ever looked at this more closely.

    MLB Offseason 2018: Harper, Your Herald Boras Sings

    These are some pretty big changes. Can't say I'm happy about the 3-batter rule. While there aren't that many true lefty specialists out there, I'm a fan of that role in the bullpen and don't like seeing it go away. Basically, it seems to me that you're taking a weapon away from the manager. The limit on pitchers might work out well though.

    How do I buy a mattress?

    Keep in mind that a King-sized mattress is incredibly inconvenient to move if you have to move to a new apartment or whatever.
