    Game Of Thrones In The Media

    "Why Game of Thrones is easily the greatest show in TV history". I completely disagree with this article. I stopped watching mid season 3 because it is a weekly excursion into constant dreariness, misery, suffering, and sadistic actions going unpunished for way too long. Very dreary show and I don't like to immerse myself in dreariness.

    Yeah. When Axe and Wag were talking about someone with a meeting there must have done the plant, I thought of her. Then when she visited the offices, she left them to go get some ice, alone. She's still doing things there - Axe thinks he's won her over with his brilliance and charm, and she's playing along, while up to something.

    As to why they didn't short, it was as much as they could do to sell some 85% or whatever of their positions. There was little time to short on top of that. Plus they could barely find buyers for what they were trying to sell. It would have been difficult to sell short too. The idea of shorting should have been brought up on the show and Axe explain why not. Maybe it was but they edited it out. I wonder why a genius like him was so long on NG in the first place. It's been a dog for years because of oversupply.

    That would be the strongest argument - didn't give in to a blackmailer. If he had emphasized that to the hilt and if he had a weak opponent, then his win makes more sense. Still there is a fundamental weirdness and psychological problem with someone who likes people to hurt him. That makes it different from other things and tough for people to accept in a leader -- just a very difficult thing to understand..

    Hanna

    The whole episode with Anton was Twilight Zonish. Hannah is at a party filled with people, makes eye contact with Anton, and it's love at first sight! And it turns out that it is the same boy that her friend has been raving about how gorgeous he is and who also has a thing about him. This guy? Come on. I've noticed an obsession with interracial relationships in British series the past few years, but this is an American series. then I noticed the writer (David Farr) is British. That explains it - the British have an obsession in this area, for some psychological reasons.

    In that fictional world, Chuck's speech worked ... he won the election. I can't believe it would work in the real world. It conjures disgusting images one cannot get out of one's mind every time one sees him. And it is such a weird sort of thing one has to wonder what sort of other oddnesses lurk within him and whether he has the requisite frame of mind. And in the case of Chuck, with the things he's done, those fears are not off base. He's a weird guy in too many ways.

    If Wendy doesn't divorce Chuck after this I would be surprised. He promised the course that would not embarrass her and the family. She walked away, relaxed, trusting him, that he would take that course. Then he just unilaterally changes course, taking her by complete surprise, totally abusing her trust. How could she ever trust him again? Why should she not just be angry beyond measure and despise the idea of even being around him?

    Selling Sunset

    I Google-Earthed it and that area looks like a mess. Roads very narrow with cars parked all along them. Lots of construction going on. Looks really junky. April 2018.

    What's with the accentuated sound of chewing in the eating scenes? There's a scene last ep where Chuck was eating a sandwich and chewing loudly while talking, for an extended period. Not talking while eating has been considered rude for centuries for a reason. It is annoying as hell!! Why do they think we want to hear this? And this ep., even while taking a pill, you hear Chuck chewing it loudly. At least no vomiting scenes. But i think that's coming. These people think annoying stuff is box office GOLD! The guys in Better Call Saul also last season started accentuating the chewing sounds and throwing in lots of eating scenes in which to do it. Is this some recent trend now. like vomiting was for a while?

    Million Dollar Listing LA

    I view the Dubai stuff as boring filler, in that they are running out of ideas for interesting angles on the LA real estate deal process. And please .... no more education on the geography, history and dynamics of Dubai!!

    I Am the Night

    I think she should have hurt Hodel more - disable him at least - hit him in the crotch with that ball. She let him off too easy. and now he can hurt more people. I understand killing him would have opened a can of worms -- not really self defense, since he was down. But to just leave him there.... I thought for sure he'd get a second wind and cause her more trouble, like you see so often in movies where they don't kill the guy. I am so glad that tired old device wasn't used.

    I Am the Night

    Fauna's accent is so weird (and sometimes hard to understand) the actress would have been better just talking in her normal voice. I never understand people (like Jay) feeling guilty about having killed someone clearly in self defense. It was kill or be killed. I would be proud of myself having thwarted the attack.

    S03.E08: Now Am Found

    I am puzzled by Roland's starting the fight with the bikers in the bar. Some are saying he did it to punish himself for his guilt in killing Harris James. If that were the case, he should have let them beat him up a bit and be done with it. He started the fight, fought back like a madman, kept it going when he could have ended it, and caused severe injury, if not permanent damage, to several people. He was the bad guy there and I don't see how it could have alleviated his guilt. It added to his "crimes".
