    Daredevil Season 3 [SPOILERS - Page 3 and beyond]

    Yeah, returning to status quo is how comics can cycle through their villains every year or so. Look how many times Joker is sent back to Arkham only to break out again for another rampage on the city.

    Very true. But at least the antagonist would've been stronger. Having everyone in New York City (yes I know the comics' NYC is more crowded) really does cause its own problems, tbh. Hell's Kitchen really isn't that far from Harlem. Brooklyn and Queens are at least over the river. HK and H are just on opposite ends of Central Park. Heroes should be bumping into each other. Defenders team up should be more common, or at least crossovers. The obvious hard part is story. Both why and why not someone is stepping in to help. And yes, there are a lot of people in that same small space. The nature of tv/movies having people bump into each other distorts that. As an aside: When visiting NTC, I walked from Times Square, through HK, down to the Twin Towers memorial, and back up through China Town. Yes, my feet hurt like hell, but geographically, you can zip to any part of the city fairly quickly if you use a cab or subway.

    Or having the Kingpin playing all (hero) sides against each other. They did have some rough time connecting, but the motivations and payoff felt meh. Leveraging a strong antagonist to drive realistic conflict (as demonstrated in DD3), Defenders could've been better.

    Until she confessed to killing his friend. His turn from playing with her to barely contained rage was well done.

    The Witcher on Netflix 2

    Only if they remove it using CGI every other episode.

    Bond 25: Hiddleswift Down

    We watched Skull Island the other day, and I was thinking through the whole thing that Hiddleson would be a great Bond. Or any spy for that matter. He was fantastic in Night Manager too. He's just got that charisma on screen that is fun to watch.

    Titans -- a DC Universe Series

    Netflix outside the US, yes.

    My Podcast: Celtic Myths & Legends

    Question: Are the CuSith, Cwn Annan, and the Wild Hunt all from the same common proto-European root? Or was it a Celtic tradition adopted by the Germanic people or vice versa? I've had a fascination of these of these hound tales all my life. I think it started with Hounds of Baskerville and then Arthurian related, and then deep into my reading of myths and legends. Cool stuff.

    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    This is the real gem.

    MCU - X

    Because people don't care enough about SS to get up in arms about it? JL, I can see people getting miffed about not seeing their childhood heroes get their on screen due like Avengers did. SS, not so much. Shrug and move on. If the first GotG had bombed, no one would've cared beyond the minority comic fan. I grew up reading Marvel (X-Men mostly) and never heard of GotG before the movie was announced. If the third GotG bombs now, people will be clamoring for a "Gunn version" or something equally unrealistic.

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    Bautista will be in every shot of the film, but standing so still, he'll seem invisible.

    WHEEL OF TIME tv show: Go on,tug my braid!

    One long montage scene should cover it. Music plays while everyone looks dramatically toward the direction all the male channelers are looking. Music swells. A few tears are seen. More looks of confusion. Until someone invents a watch to check the time. And Scene.

    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    Ok 90+%. I tried to leave a (too) wide margin of error since in the intro to one of his above linked panels he addressed the fact people do show up because of his "celebrity" status having not read the books.

    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    “Is Book 3 still a real thing?” ETA: Honest question (applies to all authors who have books "pending"): Why wouldn't you just start every public appearance with a "brief update" ("Thanks for coming. Before we get started, let's just address the elephant: Still working on it. Sorry. No other news.") instead of getting angry or offended when people ask the inevitable question? If you are famous because of your writing and people are coming to hear you speak because of your writing, why not just answer the question in everyone's head? I get that it's tedious. I understand it's hard to verbally remind them (and yourself) that the book isn't much closer to completion. But if you insist on being a public figure and doing press tours/conventions, then it isn't too far a stretch to just say: 'Ditto on the elephant. Let's move on." Why wait for the obvious snarky question and appear like a douche for avoiding? If it's that painful to talk about, don't do appearances where 50+% of your audience is there for your books.
