Did you know they're shooting a movie too?

They aren't shooting a movie. They are in the middle of ADR work! So yeah, December can't come fast enough.

The latest Game Of Thrones was the shortest episode since the beginning of the series. Boy, was it rad though.

Wife and I decided to give Red Oaks a chance. Amazon original that follows the employees of a country club in New Jersey.

In 1985.

So far so good.

Yep, though about half way through my gf said it was a poor episode. I kind of agreed and said hopefully they will pull something out if the bag for the last bit... Yikes!

Unlike Battle of the Bastards this had
Spoiler: show
characters on both sides who I didn't want to see die. But by the end I felt Bronn should've got it. Way too much plot armour for GoT. I hope they continue to be ruthless with their main characters (except for the dragons, don't touch them!)

I wonder if we will get another large battle this season?

Btw, that was the best screen dragon since Dragonslayer, way back in '82.

I think at least one of them needs to die... they've shown they are mortal... it's not enough though.

Lexx. Was pretty cheap for the full series, and I'm not one to complain about packaging if the discs are easy to get out. Just watched the first movie and enjoyed it. Watched this show as a kid but never saw much of it. Gonna be fun going through this along with Psych.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

Based on a character from several Douglas Adams books (one of my favorite authors) but it's been so long since I read the books that I recall little about them. From the first episode it's clear that this show is going to be bizarre and confusing and leave lots of plot threads dangling for as long as they can possibly get away with. Perhaps the most distracting part of it is that it's supposed to be taking place in Seattle, but hardly anything about the Seattle being shown on screen has any basis in reality (apparently the show is being filmed mostly in Vancouver.)

Seems to have decent reviews from critics, but most viewer reviews seem to be somewhere along the lines of "stopped watching 20 minutes into the first episode". Guess it's a bit of an acquired taste.

Game of Thrones s7e5 A riveting start, worthily capping off last week's inferno. The remainder was a little too obviously transitional an ep for my liking, if enjoyable. Dinklage, Cunningham, Flynn, all my favourite chaps got some good screentime. A veritable mantastic voyage at the end too! Silly fanfictiony stuff, but it's impossible not to enjoy seeing these guys improbably linking up for Great Ranging Beyond The Wall 2.0 . Next week looks fun. Been a whole two years since Jon and Tormund terrifiedly ran away from a horde of dead men. I'll always hate the show's shitty s5-onward Wights though. Skeletons doing ninja flips, whatever. Lacks the grunge and pathos needed for proper meat puppet horror. That s2 finale wight staggering along sans most of his face ala Day of the Dead's sun-blotting title card abomination, that was the stuff.

Surprised at the apparent swerve away from
Spoiler: show
ongoing war between Cersei/Dany as the Walkers proceed unchecked
- not unpleasantly so. More potential for chaos than the neater alternative of burning the house down before shit truly hits the fan.

Alan Partridge fans will no doubt enjoy Kevin Eldon's encore, after his winning turn as Not Ned Stark last season. :cool:
Spoiler: show
motherfucker's face got turned into fuckin chili :shock:


It was around this point last season that a tepid Arya plotline took a sudden turn for the retarded, after weeks of fan chatter insisting the previews were surely misdirecting. I wonder what'll happen this time?

It was a good episode, although I feel the pace is far too hurried this season. It's still second fiddle to Twin Peaks on Sunday night though. :)
