    MERCH of Thrones: What do you wish you could buy?

    I know exactly how you feel. Such a shame.

    Battlebots

    Agree about Black Dragon, lousy decision. To be fair to Huge, it probably wasn't going to beat Son of Wayachi anyway. Seems like they had a fairly desperate battle plan, trying to drive over it and attack it from the top with that short blade. Nice to see Duck back and getting some revenge over Bombshell. The first time I saw Duck, I thought it was the dumbest robot I'd ever seen, but that is one tough bot. I'd be surprised if it doesn't make the top 16 this year.

    S06.E05: The Other Thing 

    Even better if he actually was Coulson somehow, and the Coulson that died with May was a clone they had sent back. I've still never forgiven Marvel for not bringing Coulson back in the movies.

    S06.E02: Tainted

    That gives me an idea for if they are looking to vary the format. Instead of doing something like bringing in partners (which no one seemed to like), maybe some sort of option for switching sites when someone taps out. Like if someone is unhappy with their site, when someone leaves they get the option of moving to their site - it could be blind, or they could go check it out. This would include whatever shelter is there, but probably the motivating force would be better food sources. They could have some sort of random rotation for who gets first pick. Of course, one problem with this idea is it clues in at least one person when someone taps out. And some might not like that a contestant could end up living in a shelter someone else built. But I'd still rather see something like that than partners. Oh well, just thinking aloud.

    Sarge is using a lot of the same phrases that Coulson used. Even the title of the episode refers to it. Wonder what that will develop into?

    I thought Michelle's use of the barrel was clever, I wouldn't have thought of that. Hopefully it will pay off for her. I can't blame Nikki too much for freaking out about the cut. She's out in the middle of nowhere, and has a lot of work to do with that hand. If she had gone to the emergency room they probably would have stuck a few stitches in it. I'm sure she was mainly worried about getting it infected. Donny was talking about his family, and I thought "Here we go..", another person who is going to tap out because he misses his family. At least Sam (last year's winner) was able to use his family as motivation to stay out there longer. I might have thought Donny should have waited to see if his intestinal problems would pass, but given his history of health problems, no.

    MERCH of Thrones: What do you wish you could buy?

    I was looking to buy some Game of Thrones merchandise, but unfortunately the ending ruined the whole series for me. As it stands now, I don't want that stuff in my house.

    Battlebots

    The Discovery family of channels is known for this sort of trickery. But this isn't that big of a deal. Just watch the new episodes on the Discovery Channel, and don't worry about the Science Channel episodes unless you are heavily into the show and want the extra footage. If I understand correctly, the Science Channel airs the complete matches, whereas sometimes Discovery will edit them. But Discovery airs them first. All the "new" tag means is that it's a new episode on the Science Channel.

    Alaskan Bush People

    I'm pretty sure they said they were going to bury it. The previews show them working on the trailer next week, so they're not done with it yet. Sounds like we need to start a separate Raising Wild thread. I doubt it would get the traffic that Alaskan Bush People does though. All we have to do is start a thread titled "Raising Wild" here: https://forums.primetimer.com/forum/4359-other-candid-reality-shows/

    All the more reason to not want tourists sightseeing.

    Battlebots

    Considering the way Quantam is designed, I'd say it's fairly likely to happen again. IMO they really need to find some sort of solution, because I'm not sure that the way they resolved it was entirely fair.

    Jon Snow: He Knows Nothing

    I don't recall it being in The Last Watch. I believe I read it on one of the subforums here, they claimed it came from a D&D interview. Sorry I don't have a link, wish I did. So I don't know how reliable it is. I'm not even aware of a D&D interview since the finale, I thought they were in hiding from angry fans. I've seen a lot of different thoughts about what's going on with Jon Snow at the end, and it appears to be all conjecture. The fact that it is so unclear is just one more problem to lay at the feet of this bad ending.

    Jon Snow: He Knows Nothing

    According to D&D, Jon Snow was made Lord Commander of the Night Watch again, and is going to spend the rest of his life ranging the North looking for possible threats to the Wildlings (and others). It strikes me that if Jon is going to spend all his time ranging, it doesn't really make sense to make him Lord Commander, does it? Wouldn't they like someone closer to home (Castle Black)?

    They probably don't want people to know because: 1) They might have future seasons there, and don't want people interfering with the filming or the contestants. 2) They don't want tourists visiting the area. Considering the predators and lack of resources, it could be dangerous for the inexperienced.

    Battlebots

    I agree, there was way, way too much filler. It's good to know some background on the combatants, but cut it down. I was rooting for the new robot Quantam, but I thought the ruling was controversial. Not wrong, necessarily, but controversial. Quantam was the crusher bot that got it's teeth stuck in Blacksmith's armor and couldn't release it within the 30 seconds. Well, it did release it, but Blacksmith was still stuck to it. I thought a fairer ruling would be to stop the bought, have someone separate the two bots, then continue. I think they said there was no safe way to disengage them, so maybe that's what they would have done? What if someone put barbs on the back of their fangs so they wouldn't release? I'm assuming that would be against the rules. Anyway, tough way to lose for Blacksmith, but I would have been angry had they ruled the other way.
