    The Witcher on Netflix 2

    Yeah, she was cute and funny when she was just a kid. And yes, I think using a different kid actress for an episode or two in the first season when she was little, would be a good idea. Skipping these few scenes would be a mistake, they were important for creating a true bond between Ciri and Geralt.

    The Witcher on Netflix 2

    That's what I'm arguing about. They probably could burn through the source material as quickly as you say indeed if they really wanted, but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have to. Despite the length of the books, there is enough material for a season per book, especially in the later books, like Tower of Swallow and Lady of the Lake. And for instance the first two short stories collections could easily be adapted in the form of one short story per episode, and there were 13 short stories, IIRC. I could also think of dividing Lady of the Lake into at least two seasons. But maybe it's just me.

    The Witcher on Netflix 2

    I know, I don't include Storm Season (Season of Storms? I don't know how it was translated after all) into the canon. As for the trailer, I don't see there anything that goes beyond the first two books, actually. Also, how is Lesser Evil directly relevant to the overall plot? And we know this one will be adapted for sure, as there are Renfri and Stregobor casted.

    But there are seven of them. Enough material for as many seasons no doubt. And the teaser looks decent. They even show a glimpse of first Nilfgaard invasion.

    Tennis Volume 8: Is a FedEx delivery coming?

    Calibandar, I totally agree. Fed could and should have won it. He was leading 5-0 in break points capitalised and 8-0 in break points opportunities and was still losing the match late in the fourth set, that could be frustrating as hell. And it's not the first time he loses against Novak after having match points on his own serve either. The first match point yesterday was symptomatic: he wanted to end this as quickly as possible and went to the net completely unprepared, only to be passed over easily. And yet vast majority of his net approaches was successful, just not when it really mattered the most. Credit for Novak for consistency and tenacity, but I feel this match was all about Roger. When he was lowering the number of unforced errors, he was on top. Otherwise, he was not. Simple as that. But I'm amazed he still has it in him to compete for five hours against top players, that's just incredible.

    Tennis Volume 7: Roger That!

    Yay, so happy to be proved wrong.

    I wouldn't be entirely sure, he just had to defend two break points. Agut may still have some fuel in his tank i think. If not in the third, then maybe in the fourth set.

    Wow, Bautista Agut plays incredibly since second set.

    Tennis Volume 7: Roger That!

    Yes, in 2008 Federer won US Open, lost to Nadal in French Open and Wimledon finals and to Djokovic in Australian Open semifinal. Nevertheless, I wouldn't say it meant passing over the mantle of the best player in the world just yet.
  10. Has it? Recovered I mean. The way I see it, and I see it just across the border, it is still an authoritarian country with an absolute leader close to being a dictator and a joke of a democracy.

    Tennis Volume 7: Roger That!

    So we have Fedal in Wimbledon semifinal at last. Though judging by their performance in the tournament so far, it might not be much longer match than in Paris few weeks ago. Nadal is crushing his opponents without mercy, and Federer is clearly struggling to find his best form here. I hope I'm wrong and we'll get yet another epic battle after all, but for now I predict a quick Nadal win, in three, four sets at the most. Wimbledon grass is much slower than a decade ago, and it's impressive how Nadal adjusted his game to this surface anyway. So I guess Djokovic-Nadal final, and this could go either way. But man, how I would like to be proved wrong. Another title for Federer would be just amazing.
  12. Heh, I wondered about that when I saw the name. And I'm a huge Ethan Hawke fan. MBB's acting is unbelievable, she's clearly the best actress of the bunch. But overall I liked the season, even though the Russians plot might seem as a stretch. Neverending Story was just brilliant.

    Spiderman: Far From Home, Near to Spoilers

    Well, Flash's scene with alcohol on a plane was kinda confusing for me in that aspect. He was clearly enjoying his right to have a drink when MJ told stewardess he was "technically a 16 years old". If he was blipped, then he was definitely 16, like the rest of them, and I have no idea where the idea of him having a drink could come from in the first place. And if he wasn't, then he would be 21 and no longer in their class, right?

    Tennis Volume 7: Roger That!

    Heh, I queued for 5 hours, even got a sticker that proves that fact, and also got admission to the grounds only, but at least I could watch the games from the start. I agree it's perfectly organised and the experience is unforgettable. Been able to see Cori Gauff dismissing Venus, a real generation change in action.

    Dresden Files (most recent thread is archived) Peace Talks is finished

    Jeez, I will have to reread a couple of last books as I don't remember almost anything. I had to think twice to realise who was that Molly you were refering to.
