well how long should we wait before talking about stories? what's the proper length of time?


you can make a thread for it, or use spoiler tags, that way people can avoid spoilers, please be considerate

or wait at least a week?

I must admit I wasn't upset for me, as I had seen the episode before your post, but I didn't know I was going to see those things, and was thrilled to see them. Let other people have that experience, not everybody watches things the minute they come out. I didn't, I watched 2 or 3 days after.


oh fiddlesticks that

i'm tired of the hysteria over spoilers

you're giving me human waste and you already stick fiddling saw it? gimme a break

I don't think a cast change is really a spoiler. Unless its Gary Busey.

Doesn't Katee Sackoff spoil it enough already?


I really hope her appearance is just one-off. Unless she's replaced by Gary Busey.

Just found out my Plex server has all of scrapheap challenge, the best reality tv show I’ve ever seen, where two teams are sent into a junkyard and tasked to build a working machine, a hovercraft, or catapult, or amphibious vehicle, or what have you. It’s so wholesome and educated in a lowbrow British manner.

Theres an American spinoff, junkyard wars, which didn’t quite have the same charm if my childhood memory is at all accurate.

The Queens Gambit - Netflix
Nicely done! Uplifting story, Fine direction, really good art direction, color palette, ect.
And Anya Taylor-Joy is a real cutie pie! I love the way she communicates her feelings with her eyes and expressions.

I've rediscovered Scrapheap Challenge, a British reality TV show where two teams of builders are given access to a small scrapyard, a machine to build and a challenge to complete with it. It's all great fun, and fairly good sportsmanship, it's far more concerned with building neat machines out of scrap than the competition.

one of the hosts you might recognize, Robert Llewellyn who played Kryten on red dwarf.

Man, everything in the present looks familiar to me! The difference: then it was one advanced, but relatively small nation. This time it is the wealthiest nation covering most of a continent, with an arsenal larger than the next 10 competitors combined.

This is why I say that you'd ALL (the whole world) get ready to fight, or else, make your peace, and get ready to die.

I just finished watching the Crown

All in all I find the period depicted in the most recent season to be the least interesting.

The actors all seem to be having a good time.

Thatcher and all of the queen's offspring come off as real a-holes.
Princess Ann is a nasty (but saucy) snob. Charles is a sniveling bore, snob and pathetic sourpuss. Andrew a jerk and a snob. Edward as a snob who no one likes.
Thatcher is creepy and detached from the human condition.

Diana comes off as naive, a little dumb, but just slightly more attuned to humanity than the royals. It is in some ways hard to feel sorry for her, because as naive as she was, she knew damned well what she was getting into, and seemed focused on the fame and attention she would get by marrying the prince.
I never really understood the fascination people had for her. She's even less interesting than the royal snobs.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

They are ridiculous anachronistic snobs, but they are paid to be ridiculous anachronistic snobs. That's the job description.

- Finished season 6 of Homeland, now on 7.
- His Dark Materials, season 2
- Will probably start on the new season of The Expanse. Honestly, I should probably just watch again from Season 1. It's too much time between seasons.

The Haunting of Hill House (Netflix, eMule) Brilliant. Best TV I've seen in a long time. It was also a treat to watch those actors play out long uncut scenes of dialogue and single-take shots for the sake of the story and not just as a gimmick. I think it's a fine example where story, acting and technique come together.

I'm gonna give that a try.

I've been watching American Horror Story, and I'm thinking I better just quit.
It has some good points, but seems the style is more important than the stories (which are getting a bit convoluted)

It’s phenomenal, and has just enough plotline in it to be worth watching in order. It perfectly captures rural life, and ends up being super wholesome, in a dirty sex positive pro queer way. I love it.
