  • House of the Dragon will take place during the Targaryen civil war

    My GOT hatred rests squarely on the DDs. I think everyone else part of GOT did a great job. That said season 8 was a pile of crap. 
  • MLB 2020

    The blackout stuff is just so ridiculous. It’s like everything is decided by people who don’t understand what the internet is. It’s like they don’t understand that anyone can watch a stream for free. Hopefully one day someone who understands how the real world works will be making the decisions. 
  • Anyone watching I May Destroy You on HBO?

    Pencil me in as a fan too. Very thought provoking show.

    It challenges me to consider some of my biases. My first was, do people actually do that many drugs? Aren't they opening themselves to far more risk? But really, the issue of drug use and sexual predators should be separate. I love that it's causing me to think about these things.

    And most everyone is trying to reopen.  I feel like quarantining like Bubble Boy.  
    Anyone up for Trivial Pursuit? :confused:
    I honestly don't see why everyone isn't quarantining like bubble boy. If you're fortunate enough to be able to work from home, stay home except for essential trips. How hard is it to watch a bunch of TV, read some books, and stay alive? I don't get it. But I guess I'm more of an introvert than most people. 
  • Dark (2017) - Spoilers and discussions

    My father's day present was a day to watch Dark. I binged the whole thing in a day and absolutely loved it.

    I know this a spoiler thread but I'll refrain from any spoilers until more people have had time to watch it. 

    I think they managed to wrap every thing up and answer all of the major questions. Quite the accomplishment considering the complexity of the show! The Dark website is great if you want to recap all of the events in a characters arc. 

    My big take away is that just about every character in the show was motivated by love. In some situations love for each other. In most instances for their children. A reoccurring theme is how far someone will go to save the life of their loved one. 

    I'm hoping to do a rewatch at a slower pace, but overall I'd rate Dark in my top 5 series of all time. I love time travel so if course I'm a little biased, but they pulled it off without any major plot holes and that alone is impressive. Also kudos to the sound track for this show, what a great score!
