  • Davos is in my top 3 favorite characters in the books, but has he done anything in the show since Stannis' death? They put him on the sideline, like so many others. If he does something epic I'm afraid it will not feel earned or well explained.
  • I guess it all comes down to what the high lords or whoever in Westeros are willing to accept. I mean, even though they found the marriage certificate, he has no way of proving he is who he is anyway. Everyone directly involved is dead (maybe except…
  • I'm also glad they didn't do the accents. That's one of my biggest pet peeves in movies/tv ever. Also, I really must give extra props to the set designer. I grew up in Eastern Europe, and never in my life have I seen a movie set around here that ha…

  • I couldn't contain myself and read the first three chapters last night. But if there's a club I'm willing to hold off on the rest!
  • @telephoneofmadness I thought of that too, but then why should she come up with the half Cherokee, half Christian background? Then again it's weird the episode is titled Muninn. Was it just for those 1 or 2 scenes with the actual crow?
  • telephoneofmadness said: I actually really liked Harajuku Media, and the competitive dynamic it creates between her and Technical Boy. I think New Media fits perfectly with the show and what (social) media is today. While I enjoyed old Med…
  • The coin giver (based on voice only) wasn't Wednesday or Mr. World - I can't remember names or faces for shit but I'm really good with voices. Then again, they can probably take on other forms. Or it could have been a messenger. The only possible gi…
  • @ncat I think that's what they want the viewers to think, but I have my doubts. To me Mr. World is just way too vague an entity, along with Mr. Town. Like, wtf are they about? And if we're going back to the last episode: who do you guys think gave …
  • @Cecily No worries! I don't think people even noticed, it's a ghost town in both threads, ha.
  • Butter. As a little kid I used to love it so much, my mother says I would've eaten it with a spoon if she'd let me (and I think a couple of times she did). Now I can't even look at it. I think I'd eaten all the butter I was going to eat in my lifeti…
  • Chinaski said: ya know, some people think cilantro tastes like soap. anyone around here one of those people? Yep, me. Cilantro is not really easy to come by where I live and never had it until I was like 25 or so. Everyone was raving abou…
  • Yeah, I also think it's as good as S1 so far!
  • @djcaudle01 Salim is so adorable he should be called Puppy instead of Shadow.
  • DaveyMac said: Yeah Neil Gaiman just tweeted about it. Hopefully this one sticks. https://twitter.com/neilhimself/status/1106681997013995520?s=21 Lakeside will be in the 3rd season? Wow, I thought that surely they will finish all book stu…
  • (spoilers) I loved the second half more than the first! It was tension city all around. I don't remember the last time I felt so stressed watching a movie. The highlight definitely was when the mule went down and it just exploded into this cloud o…
  • @djcaudle01 It got bad reviews? Wow, I mean it's not a perfect show, but I enjoyed the hell out of it. I never look up this stuff because I feel like it could spoil it for me. I hope Aron & Cecily cover it though (and I bet they had fun with it!…
  • @CeciliaM Yeah, but Apple and Samsung have been accused of the same. Not to mention apps like Facebook. Sadly I don't think anyone's data is 100% safe with any phone.
  • Not sure where you live but in Europe, Chinese phone brands are becoming increasingly popular (Huawei/Honor, Xiaomi etc.) I know what you're thinking - I didn't even wanna look that way as I've been pretty much a Samsung loyalist. But then my phone …
  • With all the screwing around that's been going on with this show (Fuller quitting and a bunch of shit after that) I was a bit nervous about this, but -after one episode- I have to say it looks like they managed to keep the show on the same level. Th…
  • Woohoo! Thanks for the heads up!
  • Bumping the thread because I just read the next book is coming out March 26. Are we going to attempt an actual book club or do people just wanna blast through it as fast as possible? Is anyone interested?
  • The hallucination started at the end of episode 7, which was almost like a new season starting (there was a bit of a time jump after 6 as they moved on from book 2 to 3). I think if you start with ep7 you're good to go.
  • I just read the show was cancelled Really sad as I've enjoyed the second season more than the first one, loved how they expanded on Emily and unbelievably, I even found some sympathy for Clare. The showrunner said they will try to 'shop around' to …
  • johnnytruant said: Apparently, that left page is from a real book, "The Woman in the Window." I have no idea what it means. Could Pizzolatto just be trolling viewers who freeze frame things like this? To that I only have to say... wtf? Bec…
  • I am pretty confused by this page that was shown of Amelia's book... Particularly by whatever she described on the left page which seems like some sort of car accident. When did this happen? Is this when something happened to their daughter? She me…
