    Watch, Watched, Watching: Midsommar Night Blues

    That show was something else. Definitely fell into the so bad it's good category, with some flashes of brilliance, and some strange cameos. I would definitely watch a second season. I watched season 2 over the past three nights... did not like it nearly as much as season 1. Tench's kid was the main reason why, every time that storyline was the focus it felt the show ground to a halt. I am having a rough time with this season. Season 3 was hot garbage, but to me season 4 is even worse.

    Glad you enjoyed it. The series does really grow similarly to The Dresden Files. I'm so ready to read book 5, just after I finish rereading The Heroes. Unless you're not bothered by spoilers, do not read this until you've finished Cursed

    Moone Boy was great. It definitely didn't have the same magic that Derry Girls does though. I watched Alita: Battle Angel last night, was not impressed. The kid playing Hugo was terrible.

    Cole Wehrle the designer of Root, Pax Pamir, and John Company announced on twitter that's he working on a game inspired by Kim Stanley Robinson's 2140.

    That looks great.

    You should Yes, you really should. Like I said, nothing about Flee Bag compelled me to watch season 2, but I'm already contemplating watching Derry Girls from the beginning again. Most of whom are played by surprisingly aged actors. And I thought Hollywood was bad about having older people playing teens - Clare is 32!

    I've never had any interest in trying it because everybody that I know that has played it has said that it's way too long for what it is. I've also heard that the new Star Wars Outer Rim provides the same feel in a much more punchy experience. I've played Pipeline three times in the past month and a half, and so far it's definitely my favorite 2019 release. Q.E. is my favorite filler game that I've played so far this - quick little auction game where you can bid any amount of money that you want, but the player that spends the most automatically loses. I've ticked another Splotter game off my list with Indonesia. Antiquity is still my favorite, but I think Indonesia is just as good as Food Chain Magnate (both of which I like a bit better than The Great Zimbabwe - will be trying both Roads & Boats and Bus when my preorders arrive later this year). I was talking about it with a couple of guys I had played it with (one from each game) last night after we had played Pipeline, and that really made me want to play it again as soon as possible. I taught the game both times, so I know how to play it, I just still don't have any idea of how to play it well. The ability to merge other peoples' companies without their input is what makes this game different from anything else I've ever played, but the Research and Development track is what makes the game brilliant.

    I watched season one of Fleabag awhile back, and that did not connect with me at all. Didn't remotely live up to the hype it had in these threads, but this weekend I watched Derry Girls and that well exceeded the hype it has had here. So many wonderful characters - Orla's my favorite of the main "girls" - and the secondary characters shine so brightly. Barristan Selmy as Granda Joe, Sister Michael and her muttered comments, and the all too sparse Father Peter made me smile every time they appeared.
  9. Yeah, he did. He wasn't explicitly told that he would die if he didn't go along, but he did think about how that wouldn't have made it out of that warehouse if he hadn't agreed to join her.
  10. Yeah, but you have to be realistic about these things.

    Episode 6 of Wu Assassin actually surprised me with the way they took the plot.

    I've watched several episodes of Wu Assassin. The stories pretty basic so far, but the fights are fun

    So it's the second worst book? That's terrible news.

    Benedict Jacka: Alex Verus Series

    I've read the first 4 in the past month and am absolutely loving them. Will probably try to slow down though, but likely be caught with them by the end of the year. I do like having several already published books to read in a series I'm enjoying. They do remind me quite a bit of The Dresden Files, while being sufficiently unique.
