  1. Good to know. However, for the purposes of this story, they're married.
  2. Wow. I guess I'm in the minority here because I didn't waste one brain cell worrying about this. I didn't find it disturbing and I don't see the relationship as toxic or unhealthy. I see two people who were very attracted to each and because of the time they live in, got married without a whole lot of real information about the other person as a person. They have no clue what truly makes the other person tick, what informs their opinions or beliefs. So now, they have to figure it out. Is the attraction (or love they feel) enough to weather the storm? Can they reach an understanding and
  3. Might seem petty and immature to you, but the damage an abusive parent can do to one's psyche is real and carries on to this day. Hatred and revenge are poison and don't have to make sense to people on the outside looking in. I think some of this criticism is harsh and does not consider the the values and mores of the time, the whole institution of nobility and honor codes, gender roles for the period, or taking vows seriously. As a former romance novel reader (ions ago) I see Simon's obstinance for what it is, and never had any doubt that his feelings for Daphne would win the day.
  4. I suppose an argument can be made for that. But I prefer to use the correct names for objects. A mask doesn't protect your head and is primarily used to conceal your identity (as in face). A helmet completes combat dress, its purpose is to protect the head and face of the combatant in battle. Mask is too frivolous a term for Mando's helmet. YMMV I hope you're right about the helmet generally staying in place moving forward. Plus, I like the way it makes his voice sound. I'm even more extreme in the use of Mando's birth name. Unless it becomes common knowledge, and everyone starts
  5. Did I say he ran around with his helmet off? No. I know how many times he took it off. What I said is I don't want it to become a habit. I get the impression from some of these posts, that some fans would be okay if he disregarded his creed now that he's removed his helmet in back-to-back episodes.
  6. As just a fan of The Mandalorian, without all the history and back story beyond the original 3 movies, I have to say the ending left me a bit flat. I guess I didn’t expect Grogu to leave Mando. I wish we had been given some insight about the little guy’s perspective—what he thought, what he told the Jedi in the woods. (Sorry can’t remember her name.) Also, I am not a fan of Mando now running around with his helmet off. (Extreme nitpick: It's a helmet, people! Not a mask.) I can see it being removed under certain situations but I really don’t want him whipping it off and on like the
  7. I dealt with Groot. I can deal with Grogu. 😁 Me, too. And I was a Michael Biehn fangirl. I agree. I bet "the kid" was telling her all about his adventures with his dad. Mando has become super protective of Grogu, so I loved him pacing back and forth in the background. That's two words. 😉 There was certainly some chemistry going on between Mando and Ahsoka. When she leaned in and said "Groku" it was almost intimate. The kid, the armor and the swagger. Mando's got it going on.
  8. And horses. Beautiful, beautiful horses!
  9. One more time...I’m not a SC fan. I’m not going out of my way to see him in anything. I will give you this though, it is quite possible that my lukewarm temperature when it comes to him colors my reaction to his characters. Plus, I wasn’t watching The Musketeers for sappy romance in the first place.
  10. My bottom line is I’ve seen Cabrera in 2 roles (almost back to back) where he’s the lover in the wrong place. I would like to see him in another type of role. If he happens to appear in something I’m drawn to, and his character is a completely different type, I’ll be glad to see it. But he is not on my list of “must see actors no matter what,” and I’m certainly not going to explore his filmography because it’s not that serious. I have too many titles to catch up on in the genres I do like with actors I do favor.
  11. I'm aware of the situation in Merlin; still doesn't change my opinion and I stand by it. I would rather see SC in another type of role. Talk about typecasting. Ditto for the "relationship" with Ann. It wasn't something I cared for. In addition to my reaction to Aramis, I just really didn't like the character of Ann.
  12. All of these men are very handsome, but Tom Burke as Athos is my favorite. I can't stand Anne, either. She makes my friggin' teeth hurt. There was no way people weren't going to find out about her affair with Aramis when they're forever staring at each other in crowded rooms all moony-eyed, and whispering in corners. And then there's the stupidity of wearing the cross she gave him on top of his clothes instead of beneath them. Let's flaunt he's the queen's favorite on top of the fact he's a womanizer. Roll. My. Eyes. I'm inclined to give the whole baby thing the benefit of doubt.
  13. Said bounty hunter better kill the big guy first; otherwise, they're just setting themselves up as target practice for someone with deadly aim. Not really. The mud horn was on course to kill him; the Jawas laid Mando low as well, and that's just off the top of my head. I guess I'm the only one who doesn't want to revisit Omera and her blatant play for Mando. Yes, I get the appeal. The man oozes sex; his armor, his helmet, his alpha male strut. Woo! I'm here for it. But she was practically drooling. Stop it already. Have some self control. 😂 The shot of Mando leaning ba
  14. Did you miss the part where I said if it's funny? Laughter can be appropriate at a funeral, especially if a speaker is recalling a funny story about the deceased. But I don't know what the original comment was anymore and I'm not digging through the thread to determine what started this line of commentary. If it's funny I'll laugh.
  15. Yeah, well, what can I say? I had home training as a child, but I'll still laugh if it's funny.

    I agree with this. Of the two, Camilla was far more realistic. Charles was everything he bitched about Diana being when it came to Camilla. Besotted and it wasn't attractive or mature. Huh. This reminds me of agent orange. Diana wasn't expected to be great in bed. She was a virgin. And moronic Charles couldn't have been surprised by that. Yep. Welcome to Hell. Here YMMV. I never thought Diana was pretty. She hardly pushed the cute button in my eyes. But she had charisma and style. She was genuinely interested in people she met (as shown when she hugged

    We really need a barf emoticon. The face that weeny boy depended on to cheer him up just underscores what a pathetic person he is despite being born a royal. Egads!

    Truth bomb if ever there was one. I thought "you are such a weeny man, I can't imagine sex with you is fireworks and blood rushing through your body." I was so glad, the Queen shot his shit down and kept it moving.
  19. That was hilarious! Philip's expression cracked me up. He really didn't want to bring up the past. I'm saying. Tobias Menzies is killing it as Philip this season. Hee-hee. Still a winner. You have a point about Diana's POV. Poor Diana was robbed. BP should have left her alone and let her go about her regular life, find a regular guy who would be in love with his wife. Their marriage was a train wreck and while Charles and Diana both bear blame, that whole royal family machine did not make the situation easier. Perfectly said. Yeah, being referr
  20. This was new information for me, too. Then again, I only keep up with a few royals, and I don't really scrutinize them either. That said, I don't think the BRF has gone softer. They still seem to be a pretty tough bunch. I swear TM is killing it as Philip this year. LOL Okay Dazzle was played by Tom Burke who appeared on my radar when he played Athos in The Musketeers. It was nice seeing him again. I think he is handsome in an unconventional way. And Bowie! "Let's Dance" was one of my favorite jams back in the day. It still makes me move my feet when I hear it.
  21. I cracked up when Philip said Anne is his favorite without missing a beat. He was unapologetically gleeful.
  22. I don't know much about the real HRH Anne. But I'm not a fan of the this one on The Crown. She's entitled, waspish, and unlikable. Much like the rest of them. If Charles had stayed away from Camilla, treated Diana with just a little kindness and paid half as much attention to his marriage as he did whining and pining over Camilla when he wasn't plotting to see her, their marriage might have had a fighting chance. But he didn't have kindness or empathy within himself. It's telling that the only person he could care about wholeheartedly was Camilla. It says volumes about who he and what h
  23. I agree. I know the stag was CGI, I'm not aware of any production company that kills or maims an animal for the sake of a story line. I have never liked (the real) Prince Charles. I remember the scandalous affair his and Diana's marriage became. The way he's portrayed in The Crown has reminded me how much I disliked him when the whole Camilla Parker Bowles thing was revealed. One of the camera angles made it pretty obvious, but it was still a magnificent rendering. Forget the media's wrath. Animal lovers would be calling for their heads. These people seem
  24. By "she" I'm guessing you mean the queen. If so, I think you've missed the point of the monarchy and the whole theme of this series. Queen Elizabeth said the role of the monarch is to provide stability and continuity. She's the focus for national identity, unity and pride. She's head of the household; she observes the traditions and responsibilities of her position with an iron hand wrapped in a velvet glove. And she makes sure everyone else in the family does as well. She's all about presenting the proper image to the people of the U.K. and the world. And considering the decade QE was
  25. I really hated him when he killed that creature and thought his humiliating death was exactly what he deserved. Totally agree with you about Geralt having very strong emotions. But I'm delighted he pushed his "best friend" away. Now would he please stay gone? I can't stand that character. He is beyond annoying. Truth be told, I prefer the horse. Roach infinitely more likable and doesn't run off at the mouth nonstop whenever he appears on screen.
