  1. The next Ashes game should simple by Steve Smith batting for two innings followed by Ben Stokes chasing the total.

    Game of Star Wars: The Final Hope

    Potentially a sizzle reel could be available sometime on Monday.

    Guy Gavriel Kay

    I enjoyed A Brightness, especially the links that it built between The Sarantine Mosaic and Children. It has also given me an interest in reading more of the real world history that formed the basis of the story.

    Serenity (2019): Catch That Goddamn Fish

    It gets three stars here and is reviewed as being so bad that it's good - https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/jan/24/serenity-review-the-years-first-gloriously-bad-movie-is-here I'm now intrigued and feel I have to see it.

    Final Season Premiere Date Video

    TY, had forgotten all details from Season 1.

    Final Season Premiere Date Video

    And what was the significance of the feather that fell from Lyanna's statue when Jon Snow walked past it?

    Final Season Premiere Date Video

    I am curious about the absence of Bran from this teaser, and what this means for his story arc.

    Favorite books/series about elves?

    Julian May's Saga of the Exiles, if you accept the premise that the Tanu = Elves of European myths (tall, beautiful, frequent sex with humans).

    Golden Globes 2019

    Genuinely pleased to see Richard Madden win, and his speech seemed genuinely thanking everyone he mentioned.
  10. Frankly, I don't want to even hear about Fire and Blood volume 2, as it would ruin any further Dunk and Egg stories.

    Biggest surprises from Fire and Blood

    I was noting all the movements in the Kingsguard through the years, and ISTR that Rhaenyra didn't have a full Queensguard since there were two KG of Aegon still alive. Kind of surprising. Don't have my specific notes in front of me at the moment.

    Baelon The Brave as King

    Well there probably wouldn't have been a Dance of Dragons, for starters.

    What happened to the Dragons between riders?

    I did find it mildly irritating that we don't get any information on when specific dragons were hatched as well. Most of the dragons beyond the original three (Balerion, Meraxes, Vhagar) just appear in the narrative when first mounted by their rider.

    TWoW - Arya Stark

    It's extremely unlikely that Jeyne Poole would go all the way the House of etc etc to kill herself. That particular side of the whole Faceless Men organization is something that is probably very specific to residents of Braavos. No-one in Westeros seems to know anything about the FM other than they are skilled assassins.
  15. Mawkish sentimentality, as have been most recent regeneration episodes - requiring some mechanic that allows all the companions to come back and every one gets to say "Awwwwwwww".
