    Daredevil Season 3 [SPOILERS - Page 3 and beyond]

    I never felt foggy was in danger this season actually. As he said himself, too visible and high profile. But Karen has always felt more endangered , not because of Matt but because she puts herself in situations that are exceptionally dangerous and marks herself as a target. Which is why I hate the idea of killing her to give Matt angst. She’s a brilliant character with her own demons and enemies, killing her off to serve Matt’s plot and character is boring.

    This has happened quite often for me in the UK with other books. Joe Abercrombie’s shattered sea trilogy for example, every instalment was stocked in Waterstones several days before the official release. Never found out why, maybe a distribution thing.

    JK Rowling announces Five 'Fantastic Beasts' films

    @lady narcissa Want to add that I share you glee at being back in Potter world so I was more forgibiving of the film than I might have been. Will happily watch it again, and didn’t regret the £4.99 ticket (which is my metric of whether it was a good film or not

    Amazon U.K. has more reviews. I suspect it might skew that way dueto the setting and author being U.K. based

    It was ok but could have been so much more. What really makes it suffer is the cast of characters is too damn expansive, so nobody gets the screentime they need. I think this is a problem with JK herself. She is a novelist, not a screenwriter. Yes you can be both (see Gillian Flynn) but she needs to realise that what works in a novel cannot always come to screen. All of these characters in a novel is tricky yes, but you can still give them sufficient development. On screen, you just can’t give them the time they need to breathe. Couldn’t even tell you what Gindenwald’s lackeys were called...

    Moreso than Karen would? Is foggy really more popular with fans?

    It’s definitely a children’s book. Doesn’t mean what everyone is saying regarding themes, characters etc. and enjoying it as an adult isn’t applicable though

    Yeah I did have the chains in mind, and didn’t recall specific mention of any non-metal links, just Pycelle’s being rather luxurious, but that seems more decoration than part of the links he has earned. Just a thought.

    On the metals thing, is there any wiggle room for them not to be metal? Don’t recall what is written exactly, but it would add, for example wooden masks and...well not much else actually. Oh. I suppose, theoretically, you could have something like a gold mask studded with ruby to represent subject X instead of the subject represented by plain gold the idea there being that once you cycle through the core metals you add something on to them for a new area of knowledge Poor Meria
