    FatM touring the U.K. and I actually have the money to pay for tickets for once! Now to find someone to go with... And some schmuk to sit at the laptop when tickets are released to purchase them, since I’m working

    I hate the prequel lightsaber fights apart from Duel of the Fates in episode I because they aren’t just so overchoreographed jumpy bullshit with no emotional weight to them. I couldn’t care less about the stakes no matter how much Ob Ewan Kenobi screams YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE! Darth Maul vs Qui-Gon and Kenobi was awesome though, shame it was intercut by all of that other nonesense. Before anyone jumps in, no, I do not think Kenobi vs Vader in A New Hope was more entertaining, I found the fights in V and VI much better though. And those in the newest movies too. Perfect blend of energy, emotion and style. I could watch Snoke’s throne room on repeat (and have, suck it). oh and Padme Amidala is such a waste of potential both as a character and actress. I’m glad Portman managed to move on from the prequel stink without being adversely affected. After all she was given all of the most cringeworthy scenes in AotC with Hayden and then reduced to a prop I need RotS

    HBO's Westworld VII: Abort?.Retry.Fail

    Question I meant to ask after the episode - what do people think of Clementine? I’m a bit confused as I thought her lobotomy (or however you would describe it) in season 1 effectively ‘killed’ her. I mean it obviously affected her since she now seems unable to speak, but it seems that she has not wiped entirely (she clearly had at least some recollection of her former role when she saw New Clementines running her lines) and is also part of the network of Hosts Ford has control over (taking Bernard to the cave). Anyone have any thoughts on her? Also a clip from the trailer involving her, which should be coming up, makes it look like she is riding horseback and leading some of the Delos buggies...somewhere. More Ford games?
  5. Pretty sure this already happens. the answer is obviously not enough firepower. No one wil be safe until everyone is permitted to own a tank

    Liveships being her best work is not at all unpopular! Or certainly not on this forum anyway. (But it’s all great stuff anyway). My favourite ice cream used to be cherry Garcia but I have not seen it anywhere over here for years now Ha, your prequel posts keep making me think of this: (Towards the end)

    The books coming out in 2018

    They are really enjoyable books. I enjoy them in their entirety, for both the book long ‘mystery’ and the historical events happening in the background. And the recurring characters are great too. i was introduced to the series after finding a rather battered copy in a charity shop for a good price. Now i have them all on ebook and quite often find they are put on sale (I use kobo, mostly)

    Agree completely. Clarkson is utterly detestable. In fact he approaches Piers Morgan levels of loathsome in my eyes (approaches but doesn’t quite reach, because he IS Piers Morgan after all).

    At what age did you move out of your parents house

    They probably think you should know how frustrated they’ve been that they can’t have sex as Loud as they want

    What is this “buying” of a house you speak of? Isn’t that just monopoly jargon?

    Viserys and daenerys captured

    Ned would likely not take the Targlings in, it draws too much attention to the Starks when from all appearances he wants to withdraw from the limelight. You also have the chance Jon grows up resembling Rhaegar and someone notes the similar appearance of Jon and Dany/Viserys

    At what age did you move out of your parents house

    I love my mam so much and she has always been incredibly supportive, emotionally and financially (I mean as far a show she can financially since she doesn’t earn enough that’s she doesn’t have given watch the pennies. But she always tries to help if I need it). But good lord living with her drives me to distraction, I can’t really handle it. I think had I never moved out for uni and experienced that independence it would be so bad but as it is it’s terrible. my relationship with my dad is complicated. He and my mam are still together but me and him...we’ll less said the better. Most of the time I can’t bear being in the same room as him

    Oh yeah, that was great! Also loved Felix’s “i’m from Hong Kong” line because of course Sylvester (that name always makes me think of loony tunes) is an ignorant dick

  15. Huh, just realised I somehow never read the final book of Shattered Sea. Odd, I loved the first two books and was looking forward to the final instalment but somehow I just kept putting it off
