    What was the last time you had your "mind blown"?

    last time was recently watching these clips (first vid, the "action" starts at @ the 2:00 mark...) and

    TTTNE 472: A new Year, a new Ruler-or not

    Stay calm and keep posting. I'm only following the Royal Wedding in the hopes that somewhere on youtube there will be posted a video of the Queen joining in on the Chicken Dance.
  3. I mostly enjoyed the series. I did get into some of the characters (Sara Howard and John Moore, the Isaacson Brothers, and Mary Palmer all were great). Never really warmed to Laszlo, though. Thought the ending was sort of flat (never did get to read the book...). Would like to see another season re: Angel of Darkness (that book, too, is on my shelf waiting to be read... )
  4. Thanks, Astromech. Yeah, that seemed strange to me, too. I'd have pursued if only to confirm their deaths. But, then, we have decades worth of spy/thriller stories, movies and TV shows to hone our assassin like abilities. That site's still not working for me. Maybe it's the browser? I'm using Firefox. Anyway, if it's just recaps... *shrug*
  5. Noooooo! Aw, Mary! Who was the third man "invading" Laszo's place? He wasn't also a cop/former cop, was he? Has anyone tried to go to the site thealienist.com "to get deeper into the show and for more info" as they say during the show? All it seems to be is a a street scene with the year 1896 shown in the middle. There is a "hot spot" near the upper left corner, but clicking on it does nothing...
  6. I liked it as well. I haven't read the book. So, I found it dragged a little here and there, but, attributed it to the need for exposition. The sets and costumes and the three leads were amazing and, as you say, seemed to really capture the tone. Looking forward to the next ep.
  7. Yeppers. Excessive "trips to the mound" by anyone, including it seems the folks selling popcorn, are getting ridiculous and annoying. And agree, the insane number off time outs until the batter feels ten thousand percent comfortable and ready to bat are getting ridiculous. But, I also don't mind the pace of the game. Another big NO vote to pitch clocks. As with the "automatic intentional walk", how much time was saved anyway last year?

    Well, that sounds hauntingly familiar...

    This ep held my interest, at least. Rather dark turns here and there. Not much of a cliff hanger, tho. I've not read the graphic novel(s). Is the show running more or less along the lines of the written canon?

    Youtube Videos.

    I recently stumbled across these on Youtube. I watched these discussions (Ethics in America) on PBS... oh, back in the 80's I guess. I found them to be absolutely fascinating. Harvard Law Professors conducting panel discussions, using the Socratic method and some increasingly excruciating hypotheticals , with some interesting folks (General Westmoreland and others involved with the Vietnam War?!). These two shows (Click around for other likewise interesting subjects) involved ethical conduct by the military, the media. etc. during war. Sounds weird but I still find them compelling. Sometimes what is said is horrific. Sometimes oddly comforting that superpowered military minds would even stop to think about ethics of war.

    Good ep this week. Herr Star, Featherstone and Hoover are killing it. Loved when the "professionals" showed up. Not enjoying Tulip's storyline, such as it is. And can someone please drag Cassidy back into the show?

    No idea. T'was a wild extrapolation on my part. I presumed that once turned into a vampire, one doesn't age from that point onwards and one's physical state becomes static. Hence my guess that one wouldn't die and the cancer would remain, getting neither better nor worse.

    Agree with what others have posted. The ep. was a bit slow. But, there were some interesting points along the way. Cassidy's deep thoughts on immortality. Tulip's interaction with the new neighbor. Idea of using Genesis to fix Dennis was interesting. How would that work anyway? Jessie intoning "Hey, get better"? Would a person's body have to respond to that? Or maybe "Dennis, don't feel any pain from the cancer" might work. It would allow nature to take it's course without the awfulness of the situation. But, I'm probably thinking too hard on the details. After all, should Jessie ever shout "Don't move!" to someone, it creates a dilemma for that person, doesn't it? Would it stop involuntary movements? Could the person inhale/exhale? Would heartbeats stop also? BTW, should Cassidy bite Dennis, yeah he'd "vampire up" and live forever... but... to forevermore be in constant pain? Ummm, wonder if they're thinking of that. Maybe that's the reason Cassidy is so resistant to the idea?

    [Spoilers] EP704 Discussion

    I agree. I took it as a joke. Davos, like Jon, and Davos is well aware of Jon's position, is rapidly realizing that titles and "sides" are meaningless and that all have to band together to defeat the WW.

    Wholeheartedly agree. The last test on the firing range? saw it coming and giggled hysterically anyway.
