    Outlander II: Sing me a Song...

    Seeing as he seems to be a fan favourite character in the show, I would say... yes? But I haven't read the books, so I have no idea. Do they take place during his time in Britain or in America?

    I wanted to reply but Toth already summed up everything incredibly well. Fate/Zero may be strange to watch at first without the background knowledge on the "Fate" concept. But nothing a quick google up can't remedy (although there is the risk of spoiling Fate/Zero itself with the googling), or simply a heads up from someone who knows what it is about. It is not "compulsory" to watch in any case, it's just that it's the only good thing to come out of the Fate mess. It's a great show on its own, if you like ensemble pieces of characters fighting each other, that is, and all the (interesting I believe) drama that comes with it. And the characters are all great in their own way, contrary to the rest of Fate.

    It baffles me when I see someone actively trying to watch or play anything from the Fate franchise other than Fate/Zero.
  4. Season 3 was a big disappointment for me. Some great moments (tears came when Uthred talked of his relationship with Alfred), but overall, the plot didn't make sense. I understand the need of condensing the plotlines of multiple books, but I thought it was better handled the first two seasons. For instance, in season 2, they gave the Norse brothers (book 4) the role of Ivar and Ivarr (book 3) which was smart and allowed to have them present the whole season. Otherwise, the show still followed the events of the books pretty faithfully. In this season, they had the so called new Great Army waiting the whole season for Alfred's death, which is just absurd, both from a storytelling point of view and in-story logistics (the army would just starve and disband before that). But mainly, I disliked: Heasten and Aethelwold's back and forth with Wessex, it required way more suspension of disbelief that I could afford. the original ending they gave to characters that just vanish in the books. Ragnar in the books was original as a Viking as he just wanted to live in peace for the rest of his days in his castle. And he did. It broke my heart to see the death they gave him in the show. Same for Thyra. Why couldn't she just live happily ever after with her Beocca and their many children, as in the books? Why? Was it necessary to have the whole Ragnar family die horribly? And poor Beocca to live trough this... The whole Skade fiasco. Keeping her for much of the season was their biggest mistake. And some other less significant nitpickings, like the mid season battle that was atrociously directed and horribly written (really, Alfred, you want to have all Uthred's men killed just to make a stupid point?).

    ‘Outlaw King’: Robert The Bruce Scottish Epic

    Yes, but IRL, he didn't achieve anything against his Scottish enemies before Loudoun, only losses. Whereas in the film, the Comyn supporters are more or less destroyed. You can see several of them killed on screen. I don't know, I have a hard time imagining any possible sequel to the film.

    ‘Outlaw King’: Robert The Bruce Scottish Epic

    The film merged the battle of Bannockburn (against Edward II) with Loudoun (against Valence I think). There can't be a sequel with Bannockburn given that Loudoun served its purpose, and that all the events that should happen between Loudoun and Bannockburn such as fighting the Scots (McDougals, etc) already happened before Loudoun in the film.

    The Witcher on Netflix 2: Man of steel and silver

    Yes, her hair is chestnut in the books I think, with "golden" reflections if I believe a wiki. Yet again, people complaining don't understand that this is not an adaptation of their beloved games.

    The Witcher on Netflix 2: Man of steel and silver

    I find all these complaints about Fringilla and Yen very funny, as for the former for whatever reason I imagined her as brown if not black when reading the books and was very disappointed then to see her depicted as white in the games, while for the latter, I faced uproar whenever I said she should look like a late teen. I promise you though, I am not the casting director.

    Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, if you don't mind a pure villainy villain (some people are apparently allergic to it...). It's like SnowPiercer mixed with Attach on Titan and some zombies.

    (Spoilers) Mr. Robot final season

    Last episode was a masterpiece in every front. No one should miss it.

    (Spoilers) Mr. Robot final season

    I didn't watch it on TV, but apparently, USA didn't put any commercial break to keep the full one-shot episode as it was meant to be? It's... wow, I never thought such thing would happen one day on TV.

    Outlander II: Sing me a Song...

    I would have never thought I'd see something as dumb and incomprehensible as Ian swimming to the island in a show like Outlander... What renders the thing even more ridiculous is that a few seconds later, there is a goddamn boat with a bunch of (apparently smart compared to Claire and Jaime) pirates (or whatever), so it's not like the writers and everyone on the production team just magically forgot about boats.
  13. Frankly, giving the reins of a graphic novel such as Watchmen to a director who goes to promote it with a NRA cap is more shocking to me than a visual style. The political statement was completely muted, if not reversed...

    Outlander II: Sing me a Song...

    She actually even went to the extent of saying "I wish you were dead instead of him"... So no, it's not just Frank's words.
