    Game of Thrones Ends Its Watch With Plastic Water Bottle in Plain Sight

    Game of Thrones season 8 announced

    I'll give this episode credit for ending the series on a decent note. For a season that felt very predictable, as if they were working off a checklist, I found everything after the inevitable death of Daenery's wasn't necessarily completely obvious. I understand why they wanted to get rid of...

    Survivor S38: Edge of Extinction

    If true, that's mind blowingly ridiculous.

    Survivor S38: Edge of Extinction

    Chris also secured an idol which Devens could have denied him. He also got Lauren to give away her idol, which she needed for herself, which is a huge move in Survivor. His win was arguably unfair for all the reasons I listed, but I give him credit for pulling off what he did with the hand he...

    Survivor S38: Edge of Extinction

    Well, that's Survivor. If you want a show that ends satisfyingly and rewards the best player, don't count on this show. For me, it's akin to being on a real life jury. If you're asked to convict someone, you base that decision on the law. Did they do the crime and therefore should be punished...

    Clearly, there will never be agreement on whether or not Daenerys's descent into madness was justified, too abrupt, inconsistent, etc. I will say, however, I appreciate the insight from people as to why it makes sense. I don't quite buy it, by virtue of the fact that her actions have generally...

    Survivor S38: Edge of Extinction

    A great criticism highlighted by someone online: My favourite tongue-in-cheek online prediction for next season: Rob and Sandra get to enter the game on Day 35 and one of them wins.

    Survivor S38: Edge of Extinction

    Well, I think this will be one of the most talked about and debated finales (and season) in the show's history. A good point was made that the theme of the season was not on trial. Would it have been fair to penalize Chris for being "out" of the game for so long? Was it unfair that the jury...

    No, the majority of the residents are the same as you and I. Aside from voting, I have no control over the actions of politicians. In King's Landing they don't even get to vote, they're ruled by royalty. It's also been noted they are ruled by fear, not by any sense of loyalty or agreement with...

    One take on the writing I read today made a good argument. GRRM came up with story as he went, letting the story unfold in a natural way. With the show, they seemed to have an ending and a deadline, and wrote backwards from there. Hence it feels like a lot of the actions by characters are...

    I just started reading the first book for the first time, and it's really good. It's a little boring by virtue of knowing what happens, naturally, but I recognize quality. I figured I'd read it to get a bit more detail story wise, but I'm hesitant because of the common question - will the book...

    I think this is where the disconnect lies. No one should be surprised that she is prone to madness, but all of her major actions have really portrayed her as good. Freeing the slaves, telling Yara to stop it with the raping and pillaging, etc. The bad things noted above are true, but they're so...

    The well rounded and developed characters is a major achievement of the series. Cersei is such a fun character because she's clearly evil but you can also appreciate what a bad-*** she is. In those moments where she imprisons her enemy next to her dying daughter, or blows up her enemies en...

    I read somewhere that they wanted to focus on the impact of such an attack on the people being hurt by it. For whatever that's worth.

    Done they were. Lied they did.

    Which goes to show the different approaches between Marvel and Star Wars. Marvel is more likely to give a chance to people based on the quality of their work. Star Wars is more likely to hire people who can make a product that has wide appeal, but is safe. As much as I liked The Force...
