  1. I hear there are riots now in Los Angeles - be safe!
  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_zOsgWVDuY&t=189s I always enjoy Charlie's videos. The Baby Yoda puppet truly is magical, it makes me almost cry. And Pedro Pascal, what a charming guy! When he says "we are all going to play second fiddle to this little guy" and smiles.... I can hardly wait for the second season.
  3. Thanks a lot Buildabear for making it impossible for this working nurse to purchase Baby Yoda. There is no store near me and during your so-called online purchase event where at 11.30 am you had to enter a "virtual waiting room" to get a chance to buy the Child I was at work doing a 14 hour shift. By the time I got home it was all over. Goes into corner to cry.
  4. Sadly the only thing that comes to mind about this show is "what has happened to Helen Hunt's face"?
  5. I don't get the comparison either. That statement really bothered me. And the comparison to an alligator?? The child is a baby but he has shown that he wants to protect Mando. He wants to heal people. He has affection for Mando. How much empathy and affection is an alligator going to show you? Of course, there is a school of thought that basically we are all animals, including us humans. Maybe he meant that. I don't want Baby Yoda aged up for a good long time and I don't want him ruined so Favreau can satisfy his desire for "ugliness". Can't we have nice things?
  6. They should just let the child be the adorable creature he is. And I love his weird little hairs. I don't think he is too "cutesy" and I don't want him uglied up. And neither I suspect does Disney.
  7. I am no chess expert but I do remember that a "passed pawn" becomes a queen. The only chess piece a passed pawn cannot become is the king. Since Caleb is the passed pawn of the episode that may make him quite important.
  8. I had blocked out that Gaeta turned mutineer and was executed. I always found Leoben interesting and still do on rewatch. In a show where you have Head!Six and and Head!Gaius! I can manage to imagine that Starbuck came back as an Angel. Gaius Baltar was such a great character, so entertaining to watch.
  9. Am at the part during the marathon when that glorified lynch mob almost executes Gaeta. Made me remember how that show had a special talent making me dislike characters I was supposed to be rooting for. Kind glad to discover that I still really like Sam who was one of my favorites back in the day.
  10. Jaime isn't a super-villain in the books. By the time he gets his POV chapters you realize he fits more into the trope of anti-hero. I found him to be quite sympathetic a lot of the time and he is a tragic character. And quite frankly with the way Benioff and Weiss fucked up GOT the only way I can salvage any enjoyment of this universe is to stick by the books, unfinished as they are. My problem with Westworld most of the time is that the writers enjoy their cleverness and trickery so much that I find it hard to emotionally invest in the characters. As much as GOT left a bitter taste in my mouth I never had that problem with GOT.
  11. Ouch. Those live viewing numbers are pathetic. And now is when people are basically forced to watch a lot of TV. I hope the ending of this season can function as a series finale if need be.
  12. No worries. The picture looks like the one you have.
  13. I can only find one plush on disney.com for $24.95 + shipping?
  14. I am going with the theory that Dolores is in Hale's body and Wyatt in Dolores'. Even the way they are dressed lends itself to this. Black clothes and white clothes. Black and white - two sides of the same person.
  15. Ratings drop further. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/westworld-live-ratings-drop-further-for-season-3-e/1100-6475200/ Makes me wonder how they can produce another season with those numbers.
  16. Well, the country is rather distracted right now and the show had been on hiatus for a very long time. That said I am already losing interest as the second episode didn't even feature the story line I am interested in. I don't have the patience these days for the games the writers like to play. It will be interesting to see what the rating for the second episode are.
  17. I didn't like this episode and the Maeve story is boring me this season. It is covering the same ground as the last two seasons. Maeve is sentient but trapped in the park, blah, blah, blah. I also didn't appreciate that I was left hanging with the Dolores and Caleb story after only one episode. Caleb is an intriguing new character and Dolores is finally rootable to me again and they are already side-lined? Thanks, show, this is the way you are going to lose me as a viewer.
  18. Aw, how cute! Mine has been in some shipping facility in Los Angeles since Monday - just an hour away from me and hasn't been shipped yet. And the way things are going around here where I live I could really use some plushy cuddles....
  19. A combination of background info and teasers for season 2, also the child is officially confirmed as a little boy. (I didn't even know that was in question.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfLidGWq0OM
  20. The show now feels more like a spin-off with some of the original characters. And I am okay with that since I only cared for 2 episodes last season, namely "Kiksuya" and the Shogun episode. This episode benefited greatly from having Aaron Paul, who I have automatic good will for, and no William for the time being. Thank you for that and I know it won't last. Because of the change in narrative I even found myself rooting for Dolores again. Lets see if that lasts.
  21. According to this because of the Corona Virus some of Baby Yoda toys on pre-order may be delayed because of health concerns, though the actual show might not be. https://www.cinemablend.com/television/2492547/why-the-mandalorian-season-2-probably-wont-be-delayed-by-coronavirus
  22. I know they finished principal photography before the shit really hit the fan but I wonder if post-production will be affected and the show won't be ready by October? I can't be the only one who is living in a constant state of anxiety right now and I sure could use more of our little green bean as soon as possible.
