  1. Amber Midthunder, George Takai, and Danny Pudi and more added to the cast in the live action adaptation of ATLA https://gizmodo.com/avatar-the-last-airbender-live-action-netflix-full-cast-1849586572 Midthunder is playing Princess Yue of the Northern Water Tribe. Pudi plays the Mechanist. A lot of really great casting there. I may not know the names but many of the adult roles are familiar faces. Also glad to see Trickster actor Joel Oulette moving on after that show's ignominious cancellation for bullshit reasons.
  2. From the 2019 Blacklist of the most liked unproduced scripts circling Hollywood at that time.
  3. Confusing the audience is not an original sin. Lots of stories pride themselves on keeping things from the audience to add intrigue, as ROP itself does, so obviously the showrunners intend to confuse the audience on some things but tell themselves it's terrible to confuse them on other things that the audience would take two seconds to adjust to. Making huge structural changes based on assuming the audience are incapable of following along is the problem. We have plenty of examples now to show people follow along with time jumps and switching actors and enjoy these shows. Foundation, The Witcher, and HOTD being the most recent. You may not like some or any of those, but you no doubt were not confused by the end of season.
  4. Not trusting the audience to follow along has become a big red flag for me. "Oh they'll get confused between Osha and Asha so we have to change their names" is very minor, but indicative of a mentality that they underestimate the audience. Especially in the internet age when the audience talks things through, that's just unnecessary. "Oh they'll never be able to follow a story across thousands of years and switching characters, so we have to compress the timeline to a few years" is a very major issue. So now we have the Elves in danger of fading away in a few years? Their mistrust of the audience is crippling their story.
  5. Maybe they're going to turn Lindon into a spa resort where if you're an Elf in the club of the right bloodlines you get to hang out and bathe in a jacuzzi where mithril are like bath salts, but I don't think so. Maybe it was a leap of mine trying to connect the dots and I wasn't paying attention enough, but I don't understand why people think Gilgalad and Celebrimbor are seeking mithril to infuse the light of the simarils into every Elf. I was pretty sure watching it they just wanted mithril to heal the tree. When Celebrimbor said he tested it, I believe healing the tree was what he meant. Speaking of that tree, was it meant to be the same tree that Glorfindal fought the Balrog way back in the First Age in Gondolin? Because if so how did it teleport to Lindon?
  6. From what i just read the showrunners have locked down a deal for 7 seasons total.
  7. Absolutely nothing happened on cable television today. Rumours otherwise should be ignored, for your own sanity. In other news, Vince Gilligan has a show, starring Rhea Seehorn, for Apple TV+, with a 2 season order. I repeat: Absolutely nothing happened on cable television today.
  8. My cousin said about visiting the Prime Meridian in London "literally at the centre of the Earth".
  9. Ha, turns out I was already actually on season 4 and lost track.
  10. 7 Raptor engines static fire: SpaceX has a wet dress rehearsal next, and then a static fire of the full complement of 33 engines, some time in the next few weeks. Launch in the next 2 months maybe?
