  1. I remember when they changed the opening colors of it was going to be an alternate universe episode.
  2. I'm not too too worried about accents because even people from the same state irl talk different. I would agree that the insulated societies should be distinct though. I don't care if it doesn't line up exactly like the books. Like the Seanchan are supposed to hiss and slur all the time. That sounds hard for actors to consistently do. If they all talked with a Russian accent, or whatever. The good thing is that it's made up, so it's not like an American doing a bad Brit accent.
  3. I don't think the show should go past 7. That's a long time for major player actors like the Two Rivers and Elayne. I know comparisons to GOT aren't entirely fair, but it seemed to me like everyone in the final season was way way way wiped out and just wanted to get the show over with. People like the Stark actors were involved with the show for a *decade*. That's hard. I completely forgot about that. Actually you could do a mid season ender with Falme and then the Stone to close out the season. The casual viewer isn't going to want to sit around hearing about a fucking Dragon for 3 y
  4. Open the gate, bring out the demigorgon to kill all the capitalists. It's not necessarily a plan that works but that's the plot of those movies. Or massively closeted pilots, but this was 1985 and Top Gun didn't come out yet. I thought it was interesting that Will was admonished for not liking girls, but it was in the context of not growing up as fast as the others. I'm wondering if they're going to make more of that.
  5. He's totally, 'yeah no, this has happened enough. fuck off" I think it's a great take on where the character would be after shooting demon dogs while his adopted daughter literally almost tore herself apart closing the gate to hell.
  6. That's a really good point. I think chief of the fire department is the best fit.
  7. This was a victim of the strike, but at least it's a good self contained story.
  8. Now that it's on my mind, I was thinking how they were going to do the channeling. Because a bunch of people grunting and squinting at each other probably isn't good tv. It could be a really cool effect with different looks for men and women. Nye figuring out how to heal gentling should also be a bang moment. Actually, visualizing the channeling according to strength would be a cool look. I don't know how you'd do it. Balefire too. That needs to be absolutely terrifying. Flashbacks to the Foresaken should be super cool if they pull it off right.
  9. I thought they were divorced in real life. There is a scene with Talia in Ivanova's quarters with what were clearly sleeping clothes and another time Ivanova wakes up clearly expecting Talia to be there.
  10. I initially thought it was Murray, but he was with Joyce so that wouldn't make sense. It could be any random American but that doesn't make sense either. Though, it seemed to me that Hop had enough time to run back upstairs before the guys in the suits could have got to him. Super weapons against the USA. It's basically every cold war movie plot. Hop fighting the Russian super goon was very Terminator too. It didn't look like it was too hard for any of the actors to cry at the end there in front of the UHaul. I also liked how the fireworks plan worked too. I hope N
  11. I read a decent article about how modern audiences are going to receive the show, and I think it's fair. Making Av bisexual with genuine feelings for both might be a good choice. If that is the case, then as much as I do like Min, I would cut her. I believe Moiraine had said that she knew Egw was strong, like historically strong, so that could be a good narrative in leading viewers to guess who the Dragon really is. I assume they'd show Moir's motivation to find the Dragon, and maybe a flashback to the Foretelling. I would assume they'd end a S1 with Rand channeling at the Eye, which
  12. My only appointment show was Farscape. Being in college in the 90s and living with a lot of people, you can't really get in front of the tv. I recorded a lot of shows. I didn't watch Seinfeld, but I did catch the backwards episode and I thought it was a clever piece of television.
  13. I think that's what he meant and he also had to provide some context for his point. He also was saying that, yes, the research is what it is, but that there wasn't harm in letting kids self identify if it gives them some piece of mind. We work so hard in our field to talk to people about science the right way, and she came off as so cold and condescending. What would she do if it was her kid?
  14. I wouldn't have had any idea about Hawke if it hadn't been brought up. I'm very committed to not knowing these things prior to watching shows. She doing a great job. It e kind of sad where she couldn't out right tell Steve but it was also really funny that it took him a good 30 seconds to process - But she's a girl................ Oooooh
