  • @dochielomn I think Reese gets top billing because her production company started the ball on the adaptation, and Reese brought Nicole on (they had been looking to collaborate) and Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed Reese in Wild. So I think it's more a…
  • The writing has been bad this season, but this episode went completely off the rails. I knew David E. Kelley was chomping at the bit to get some legal scenes in, but I didn't think he would turn the show into a full-blown legal drama -- and a nonsen…
  • @Michelle I think it would be the highlight of my career to get to slap Meryl Streep, especially with the OTT addition of slapping the glasses off her. So wild. The twins wear false teeth also. This is the only thing I've seen Alexander Skarsgård in…
  • Amazing.
  • @Michelle We're covering BLL on our general podcast, Rabbit Hole Network.
  • I didn't like Corey initially, and I was also uncomfortable by the way they discussed "being on the spectrum," but after watching the latest episode three times (we podcast on it, so I have to watch it multiple times), I think Corey is supposed to b…
  • Having said all that, I enjoyed the premiere. I have to rewatch because I don't think I caught everything, especially when the Meryl Streep scenes left me uttering, "Wooooooow." She is terrifying. I like how Celeste's feelings about Perry are confli…
  • dragons said: Good point that there didn't seem to be any kind of scandal.  But I also think that race is always going to be a factor for the non-white people, whether white people see it as a factor or not. Agreed. Monterey is 78% white, …
  • The Americans finale was perfection. I was interrupted during the final scene, and it annoys me to this day that I did not get the pure experience because I was on the verge of bursting into tears. I'm happy that Matthew Rhys won an Emmy, but Keri R…
  • No problem, @Hatorian; thank you for apologizing. We get passionate about the things we love -- that part is a good thing.

  • I was going to post that video @All the Chickens I was disappointed that Jaime did not bring up the wildfire, but this is the beginning of NCW's fabulous WTF facial acting in S7. NCW has said several times that he used to argue with Benioff & We…
  • Murderbear said: From the SpoiLore cast: No man would ever be killed like how Jon killed Dany. They wouldn't use a man's closeness with another man to kill him that way. Funny, I don't remember Ramsay making out with Roose while killin…
  • Giovanni said: Doctor_Nick said: Thanks- I guess I'll start watching it podcast free. Didn't they say they were going to split their coverage into a spoiler free and then spoiler section? I'm considering rewatching it too because of…
  • I listened to the Storm's podcast on the Lost pilot, and I highly recommend it. There was only one spoiler that Joanna dropped in her excitement, but they bleeped it. They mention Game of Thrones a couple of times, and how they're excited to dive in…

  • JTKIII said: Jon V Night King in a one on one sword fight. Please give me this Thrones They will at some point -- it's probably why they recast the NK with the stuntman for Ser Arthur Dayne. I'm hoping we get several swordsmen vs. the Nig…
  • pamatucci said: I've been thinking about this a bunch too. It would be pretty cool if Nymeria's pack heads back to fight. It's POSSIBLE but unlikely. Unless Summer is fighting for the dead. Then maybe we could have a really badass direwolf br…

  • All the Chickens said: Lol if our picks on who dies are based on tropey things like characters getting character arch closure, having sex, making plans, having a big character moment, etc. then you would have to think that EVERYONE besides Jo…

  • @Hatorian Theon saved Sansa from what's-her-name (Ramsay's gf) and they escaped Winterfell, then Theon tried to sacrifice himself to the Bolton guards chasing them, then Brienne and Pod swooped in.
  • I absolutely loved it, but I'm grading on a curve. The conversations and dialogue were better in the earlier seasons, but I love these pre-battle scenes with people being their most honest and vulnerable in the face of oncoming death. I also just lo…

  • I don't think this is "small potatoes," and I strongly disagree with people who respond to outrage about any injustice, regardless of how insignificant it seems to them, with the admonition that there are more important things to focus on. We can fo…
  • Dee said: @pavlovsbell I watched the first episode and was just bored, but I think the whole of last year I was just over angsty dramas with a sad, self-sabotaging protagonist and just rolled my eyes at the idea of yet another one. I think no…
  • Aw, thanks, @Dee.  Actually, I should have used the phrase "female rage" instead of "female pain," because the rage aspect is the thing. Gillian Flynn Isn’t Going to Write the Kind of Women You Want Vanity Fair: Let’s start with Sharp Objects. You b…
