    Wow. I figured with Naomi Watts attached, it was a sure thing.

    Star Wars: The Circle is Almost Complete

    The Star Wars deal was announced in Feb 2018, right? Even assuming they were negotiating contracts months before that, scripts for the last season were already written and locked down for the table read in October 2017. They had been working toward that end since before the July 2016 announcement of the final season. Were they probably more than ready to hop off the GoT train? We can all agree on that certainty. But let's not blame Star Wars for it.

    Star Wars: The Circle is Almost Complete

    While I can't say I'm sad to see them off Star Wars, I certainly don't blame them for the ending of GoT. There were (are) a ton of sprawling characters and storylines not completed in the source material. We can agree/disagree/debate how good/bad/ugly it was, but they did what they could with what they were given. Got to wonder how much having Feige onboard helped usher them out. Or whether the Netflix deal was made knowing they were being shown the door eventually. Guesses and speculation. On a different subject: The production quality of the Mandalorian is amazing, though. Hard to believe what's available on a "television" budget these days. Looking forward to seeing McGregor don the hermit robes that suspiciously look like an old Jedi uniform. AND the further prequel adventures of Cassian Andor. Wonder what else Disney+ has in store for us in the live action Star Wars space?
  5. The circle is almost complete, but a new one will start soon. We almost need a Wheel of Time reference here... Bad jokes! Angst! Cool new Mandalorian trailer! Carry on!

    Game of Star Wars: The Final Hope

    IMHO, the "bathos" video is partially right, but it overplays the point. All the SW movies have silly comedic moments/gags (Jar Jar getting tongue shocked and farting tattoine animals anyone?). The prank call bothered me less than the general getting spun around on the floor and being used to mop the tile. Porgs, sea-cows, maid service, all worked for me. The lightsaber toss was a good use of subverting expectations. But the tone does swing widely and kept the audience off balance, and not in a good way. The entire movie felt off pacing wise, but I attribute it to the slow speed chase through space. (I never understood why the First Order didn't just send a few ships ahead to the next hyperspace point) Overall, I remember enjoying TLJ, but it is not a favorite. I haven't even rewatched it since the initial theater viewing, even though I bought the bluray. I'll rewatch it before RotS.
  7. Emphasizing that dynamic I'm in favor of. He's actually leaving something behind when he leaves with Moiraine. AND it makes his return a bit more interesting too, finding out that his old flame has in fact moved on. If he is married and she's still alive when he leaves, it makes her moving on negative on her part. (He had been gone less than a year, right? or a bit longer?) Unless he does what movie Aragorn did in Fellowship (breaks up with Arwen when they leave Rivendell because he doesn't think he'll survive). Both these options are more appealing than her dying on Winternight.
  8. Agreed. It changes his character quite a bit. All three boys are the same age and stage of life when they set out. Marriage changes your perspective in life. Having Perrin a young widower makes his journey one of grief and possibly revenge driven, not just fear, survival, and uncertainty. I try not to be judgey before seeing a single frame of the show, but I hope this is an unfounded rumor.

    Sony's Marvel Universe (Spiderman+Venom+Morbius)

    Ha ha ha! You fool! same....
  10. I watched... 10 minutes of this on my last long flight. I opted to not watch tv.

    Kate Elliott's Black Wolves series cancelled by publisher.

    This is why I keep coming back to this forum after all of these years.
  12. Roose Bolton for Fain or Thom? I can see him as either, though having him show up as the friendly peddler will make people suspicious of him immediately.

    Or an army of the worst soldiers in the galaxy all controlled by a single ship.
