  1. Planning to aim for Chicago in 2022 and the Glasgow in 2024. All subject to The Plague's progress.
  2. I've signed up in the hope once again of being able to make it to Chicago. DC next year is not an option I don't think.
  3. 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.
  4. Now that we are down to the last 5, now 4, it's worth watching the last few episodes. Noel and Sandi still seem to be trying a bit too hard to be humorous during their banter with each other, but they do seem to be pretty good at talking with the contestants during the baking bit.
  5. I've always wished that someone would fully develop the board game ochmir from 'Golden Witchbreed' by Mary Gentle.
  6. The usual nitpick with this episode, consistent with all the other episodes this season, is the complete disregard for the space time continuum - in that armies move around the continent with seemingly no effort or elapsed time.
  7. Yep, it was two white horses that were incinerated, and we saw Bronn eyeing up a white steed after he jumped off the scorpion wagon.
  8. I guess we now know why the actor playing Euron said he would be the most hated character on GoT by the end of the season. Getting rid of the Sand Snakes (TV version) would make it the opposite, I would imagine. Generally there was far too much blah blah blah (perhaps to celebrate National Yadda Yadda Yadda Day), I'm already getting bored with every piece of plot advancement in Winterfell involving a council of every lord there is - at least next week it looks like that won't happen.
  9. Both Christmas specials are available on YouTube. Worth watching them for some cheerful holiday stuff, especially in light of recent news about George Michael, Carrie Fisher and Richard Adams.
  10. Yep. The end of GBBO as we know it. Apparently Channel 4 are out whoring the program now for sponsors, to try to claw back some of the absurd sums they forked out to get the program from the BBC. Allegedly they (Channel 4) want to get many more hours of programming from the franchise that the BBC showed, so expect lots of spinoffs and behind the scenes stuff to pad out the actual competition coverage.
  11. Apparently there are pictures of all the contestants standing icing-less, with hands in apron pockets or arms crossed. So that may have been a red herring. The Radio Times (TV listing mag in UK) was, however, USING a different picture for Candice, which may be significant.
  12. Is it significant perhaps that in the pictures taken of the contestants at the start of the season, Candice is the only one not shown stirring a batch of icing? I am starting to think that she may be the winner. Jane has only had one star baker, way back in the first episode. Andrew and Candice have (I think) had three apiece since then.
  13. Down to the final four. Although I haven't seen the episode yet (that'll be Youtube viewing tomorrow), it seems that one of my picks for the final three has been sent home. Which is a pity.
  14. How soon before the series that is currently showing in the UK (GBBO 7) is shown on TV here in the US? I think I found GBBO 6 earlier in the year on PBS, showing on a Friday night, which is fine with me - good end-of-week relaxing TV. Got sucked into GBB0 7 when I was in the UK in September, catching a couple episodes. Rooting for Selasi, Benjamina and Rav (Rav since eliminated). Now that I cannot watch the episodes as they happen, I am reduced to reading the summaries by the excellent Rhik Sammader on the Guardian website. https://www.theguardian.com/profile/rhik-samadder
  15. There are plenty of loopholes in the dragonbinder's inscription - - Moqorro could have translated it wrongly, either deliberately or innocently - the inscription is deliberately misleading (i.e. the writer used weasel words on purpose). - GRRM could come up with some plot twist that means the horn doesn't work as intended (e.g. horn only works when there is a single dragon present, but then it gets blown when two out of Dany's beasts are present).
  16. Distances and time mean nothing in TV GoT. Varys has obviously been to Dorne and back in the space of an episode.
  17. Varys certainly gets around. Fleet heading for Dorne obviously.
  18. There we go. Now, where the frigging hell is Ghost - the only direwolf remaining by my reckoning,
