Re: TV Finales

Lost is such a gigantic pop culture blind spot for me, and that Super Punch gif is definitely not helping convince me to change that. my parents were way way late to watching lost, and they really enjoyed it. to be honest, it's probably more enjoyable watching it new now when you can just plow thro...

Re: Dogs Are Awesome, Yay Dogs!

Just want to appreciate Joanie. A couple days ago me, my wife, and son took her for a walk, and 3 houses away a pit bull got out of the open gate and attacked her. Luckily the dog left the humans alone. It probably only lasted 20 seconds, but it felt like forever. I couldn't get the idiot dog to sto...

Re: Game of Thrones

My feeling immediately after viewing is that this was lazy and predictable writing, and that I hate it. That may change. Dany burning the city down was predictable? Jaime and Cersei dying that way was predictable? Arya retreating instead of trying to kill Cersei was predictable? Greyworm attacking ...

Re: Rasslin' 2.0

The Dark Side of the Ring series on VICE is excellent, if you haven't seen them yet. Tonight's episode is about Gino Hernandez, and I'm pretty excited for it because I really don't know a whole lot about the guy aside from running across his name a few times. If it's anything like the first 3 episod...

Re: Game of Thrones

It’s pretty hard to bring something this sprawling to a satisfying close. If it was easy, it probably wouldn’t be taking GRRM a decade to write the penultimate book. I think they have done a great job. Online GoT fans are making Star Wars fans look reasonable these days. I had extremely low expecta...

I had a hunch that next three episodes weren't going to be zombies frolicking on their way to King's Landing. Agreed that she could have died in the attempt, though. how hatable would Cersei vs t...
