  • Anything to do with the Night King/The White Walkers will be completely different in the books.   Granted they will be defeated somehow, but I am sure the plotting of it will be way more intricate.  I mean the bullet point is "The others were beate…
  • The only consolation to all this is at least Disney has said after episode IX they are putting Star Wars on ice, at least in the theaters, for awhile.   So likely that trilogies that have been given to the DD's and Rain Johnson are never going to g…

  • Lime flavored Skittles....green apple tastes like the devils asshole.   You have all these great citrus flavors and then boom your hit with the awful green apple flavor that doesn't remotely taste like any apple I have ever eaten (and I love granny…
  • I would argue good Star Wars stories can be done.   Both the Kotor games are great examples of taking things we know (Jedi, Sith, superweapons) and doing them in a distant past where nothing really ties directly to the OT.   In fact one of the bes…
  • I'm not saying it didn't look good but that was the issue with the Prequels too wasn't it?  Those films, especially for the time, were amazing to look at.   I'll give another example in Solo.  It actually did a really good job of giving a fairly st…
  • I agree with Rich Evans.  Star Wars is creativity bankrupt.  They are so so so afraid of trying something new that even if they hire hot Directors/writers they end up firing them because it wasn't "star wars" enough.   Basically what that means is…
  • Just binged the last 4 episodes.  I haven't got time to really go back and rewatch, but did they do some creative editing to skip over what happened to William after Bernard shot Delores in the flashback?  Because it looked like he and Bernard shoul…
  • I almost wonder if the 10 episode prestige drama format of the show is working against it.  I loved Shogun World and am nostalgic for a time in TV where shows could just do these one episode silo character arcs like the later Star Trek did.  And if …
  • So we now know that ANY one human in the show could be a copy. The 30 day stability window means that we know who Ford was printing in the basement lab of his cabin last season.  It is whoever he had Bernard print a personality core of.   One huge …
  • I liked the movie.  My one real complaint is I wish I could see it without knowing all the behind the scenes stuff.   Like I know this version of Spiderman isn't dead.  Sony would never allow it.   I know iron Man is going to die next movie. It co…
  • I found the episode to be a bit underwhelming.   For a few reasons.  A.  I don't care about the Bernard storyline at all.  I just don't trust any scene he is in to be real at this point.  Too much of it doesn't make sense.  Why would Delos just be…
  • Depending on where you are staying at Cedar Point, if you're not staying at the Breakers Hotel I would recommend checking it out.   Unfortunately they have rennovated most of the history out of the interior, but the exterior is still a pretty cool …
  • @Jim one thing we definitely need is a zombie kill of the series for old times sake.   Or maybe even a top 5 or something.  
  • IMO it's a good call to end the podcast.   We quit watching in my house after the Glenn dumpster fiasco and my wife couldn't stand to watch the Negan introduction.   I basically just made peace with the fact that this show would never be what made…
  • The decision to not lock down a single writer/director for the sequel trilogy still blows my mind.  How will episode 9 not be a trainwreck?   I guess with JJ at the helm it will be an entertaining first watch in the theater at least.  
  • I am down 20lbs from doing nothing but light walking and counting calories.  Forget all the fad diets, (paleo, keto, south beach, etc.) The only thing that matters for pure weight loss is calories in, calories out, and to have a net deficit.  The…

  • I don't sub to the club anymore on a regular basis, but I sure will use my free Twitch Prime sub for Bald Move.  
  • @sean.ray school shootings are also the outlier 1% of all gun deaths.   The vast, vast majority of gun violence in the US is crime related done with illegally obtained guns.   So let us frame this argument correctly.  What we have is a problem wit…
  • The issue with banning "assult weapons" is that automatic weapons are ALREADY illegal unless you have very specific permits.   Any regular AR-15 on the street is a semi automatic rifle that has the same guts as a regular hunting rifle.  To ban that…
  • Considering the stuff yhe DD's have had to make whole cloth without GRRM have been some of the most cringy and worst parts of the show I can't say this excites me.  Now if the news included the fact that GRRM had written a Star Wars trilogy instead…
  • Well it for sure explains why Snoke was a non entity.  It wasn't even really a creative choice to write him out.   Snoke is all CG in TFA Rian wouldn't have evem seen those scenes in the dailies.   I blame him way less now.  I look for to what he …
  • KingKobra said: Just as a small heads up the /Filmcast did a podcast interview with Rian and released yesterday (Thursday). It’s not going to please those who are upset, but does sort of give insight into some of the decisions made.  It ex…
  • @Jim @A_Ron_Hubbard if you like Black Mirrior and especially liked the first episode of season 4 play the game Soma.  The entire thing is like an interactive Black Mirror episode.  
  • I'm not saying no one can make money.  I'm saying that in my opinion now isn't the time to get in.   I would also be concerned with the IRS getting wind of hundreds of thousands of dollars of cash hitting an account of mine in the US.   I'm an acc…

  • IMO it is the beanie babbies of this decade.   No one is buying or mining this stuff thinking of how they will use them. Don't fool yourself this isn't the next Amazon, YouTube, Netflix etc.   Why would I use cryto to buy stuff? Because unless I'…

  • I don't know if I agree that TLJ/TFA ruined Luke.   Luke was clearly heading down the dark path.  He left his training in a reckless gambit to save his friends.  He used force choke on the Ghemmoran guards at Jabba's palace.   He was a lightsaber…
  • I agree with A.Ron that there is essentially nothing stopping JJ from completely undoing the "subversions" of TLJ.   Rey can still be someone.  Snoke isn't necessarily dead (hell in current Disney cannon Darth Maul survived being cut in half by a l…
  • Calister was one of the most racist/sexist episodes of anything I had seen in a long time.  Which is ironic because I'm pretty sure they were trying to Lampoon 60's trek as racist/sexit.  
  • Overall after TFA, TLJ and Rogue One I have Empire vs Rebels fatigue.   I kind of hope Episode IX ends with both sides throwing up their arms and turning on the force users that use them as pawns in this Light Vs Dark side conflict.   I'm ready fo…
