    And somehow he gets worse towards the end of the series.

    The prequels were. According to box office mojo Phantom Menace made just over $4 mil. There were also the bootleg versions with the hilariously bad English sub titles. (DO NOT WANT., etc. )

    I don't think I actually like steak all that much either. It's just a delivery mechanism for A1 sauce and delicious marinades.

    We've never heard anything about batteries in the hosts, right? Dolores has yet to express concern about running out of power. I wonder if eating and drinking somehow powers their organic parts and maybe even their robo-brains.

    If it makes you feel any better, The Greek is almost certainly Armenian, based on his conversation with the Turkish "Shepard." It's never explicitly established but he does say that he's not actually greek. I always assumed Vondas was greek and the Sabotkas just assumed the boss was as well.

    Yeah, you could. but I think it would be a weak one. It's hard to consider him a villain relative to the other charcters on The Wire. I'm not sure that he'd killed anyone prior to his revenge killing throughout the series. They charged him with attempted murder but he just shot some guy (mike mike?) in his "hind parts" as I recall. He's not the type to kill people to silence them or to make a point, and he only seems to rob and wound drug dealers. Sheeeeeiiiit Clay Davis has probably done more harm to the community than Omar.

    You're right, and there certainly is something interesting about the mystery. If I remember right when Kima and McNulty read his record we just get their reactions, not what he actually did to surprise them. Still if I were making a list of TV's greatest villains I doubt he'd crack the top 20. As I said before he's not even the best villain on The Wire. In addition to Avon there's Stringer, and one could probably make a case for The Greek. Of course Simon would say none of them are villains and that life isn't that black and white.

    Yeah, you're absolutely right. So far we have no indication he's violent in the real world but there's a decent chance that he was. But I do think it's possible we're about to get a reveal that she killed herself because she was scared he would scan her brain and make a robot version of her to do whatever too.

    We've been told she was afraid of William. After the host Jim Delos scenes I wondered if she wasn't afraid of him because of his violent nature, but rather because she did not like the idea of a more compliant robot version of her taking her place. Or just replacing her after she died naturally.

    I bet they'll be a fiveish year gap between IX and X. They can release a spin-off or two per year in the interim. But they should try to keep up the notion that the main Star Wars movies are event movies.

    I'm not sure I agree. I mean in terms of (realistic) evil he's up gotta be up there. But he's kinda one dimensional until the last couple episodes. Until the big Prop Joe scene and the scene in jail where he starts flipping out that Omar had been calling him a punk on the street I was pretty indifferent to Hector's performance. He was meant to represent a truly evil drug kingpin (as Opposed to Avon who cared somewhat about the community and his family. Its hard to imagine Marlow donating any money to Cutty's boxing program.) but Avon had way more personality and was much more interesting as a character.

    https://www.esquire.com/entertainment/movies/a21343712/george-lucas-star-wars-7-9-plot/ It's not much but as they say in the article I think it's the first time Lucas has talked about what his version of 7,8,9 would have been.

    I really don't think Arnold's suicide plan included killing all the hosts to prevent the park from opening. He knew what the park was going to be and hated the idea. He knew they were going to be routinely shot to death and repaired and put back into service. It makes no sense that Arnold would expect shooting them to kill them permanently. I think his plan was just to have Dolores kill him, thinking that a host having killed a human would be enough to close the park. As I said before he probably had Dolores and Teddy kill the other hosts so they wouldn't intervene, and maybe also to be dramatic.
