    His scenes are always good. I hope Brienne shows up. I wouldn’t mind seeing a few more glares at Tormund. 😄

    The Fix (2019)

    Is it really? I've only seen it mentioned as a legal drama and TV Series (not miniseries). I was hoping there would be more seasons, with this season ending the OJ theme, then on to other cases.

    The Fix (2019)

    I was hoping to see a Kato Kaelin character in this, he was the most entertaining part of the original trial!

    The Fix (2019)

    I was glad to see Robin Tunney starring in a series again, but was disappointed when the scenario was another OJ take. I'm reserving judgement on the show for now though. I'm hoping they end this case this season (or earlier) then move on to new cases instead of rehashing old ones.

    S04.E02: Do No Harm

    BIB 1 - I thought so too at first but then decided it`s better to ruin the tablecloth than the probably beautifully crafted wooden table underneath. BIB 2 - Ha ha, the dreaded thing gets rattier every week!

    S04.E02: Do No Harm

    They explained it in the episode. If Rufus didn`t pay for his ``crime`` then the other slaves would be punished in his stead. If Jamie hadn`t brought Rufus out, they would have gone after the other slaves. This way, Jamie and Claire knew Rufus was already dead so even though it would still be a horrible spectacle, it was the lesser of two evils. The crowd was so riled up, they probably wouldn`t have even thought about whether Rufus was dead. And if they had noticed his condition, they probably thought he was passed out from his wounds. Or as Dust Bunny said, it was the show of his being punished that counted, even if they knew he was dead.

    I thought it was a very good episode. Difficult material and very emotional, and the scenery was beautiful. It was more interesting than a lot of other episodes I thought. A nice switch from Jamie and Claire moaning and writhing and swooning over each other all the time. I`d rather see Claire healing than humping any day. It was shades of the first season with the injustices against Scots, here against the slaves and the natives (in mention). One niggle, I`d rather see a string mop on Jamie`s head than that horrid rats nest they have on him now.

    Into The Dark

    Definitely a disappointment. I love Tom Bateman but even he couldn’t save this. I blame the script. This has got to be the worst hitman ever with the questionable choices he made. Maybe not a total loss as he looked particular fine in this. But that was the only good thing about it for me. The writing was bad, none of the characters were interesting, even the twist was disappointing. The bit of dark humor didn’t make up for these. It was a good premise but unfortunately it ended up a bad slasher rather than good scary storytelling. I hope they do better with the remaining instalments.

    I've always done it the other way around (unless I've already read the book). I find a TV show or movie can be good if you don't have the book to compare it to, then later the book is still good because novels can generally cover more than a screen adaption can. The adaptions are almost always a disappointment if you've read the book.

    S01.E10: Romans

    I'm not admitting to anything! ;-D I shouldn't say I don't like sci-fi, more that I don't like it combined with horror. No getting your peanut butter on my chocolate! Forgot to add: The main problem I had with the alternate universe is that The Kid's alternate reality was too perfect. It was almost laughable how idyllic it was, how successful they were, particularly Dr. Deaver the genius. I was sure that he was making it up and telling Molly what he knew she'd want to hear as well as embellishing his own circumstances to give himself a boost.

    Mr. Mercedes

    I think it’s because it’s not being aired on popular channels. Even in Canada it’s only on Fuse Superchannel (a pay channel, and not in a cheap package). I loved the first season and I’m still enjoying it, though the first season was better. Brendan Gleeson is making the show for me. He’s always been an excellent actor. Even when the lines aren’t exceptional, his delivery makes them stand out. But the writing and acting is so good in general. Harry Treadaway, who I’ve only seen in British shows before, is another great actor (as is his twin brother Luke) but everyone is good in this. Great characterization too (of course that’s to be expected with Stephen King, something he’s always paid attention to), you really get invested in the characters. The experiment reminds me of Firestarter. You just know it’s going to go awry at some point. Now that Bill has confirmed Brady is active in there, it should get interesting. A confrontation is likely on the way.

    Yes, everyone was pretty well equally divided on this. I prefer creepy horror (not slashers) to sci-fi so didn’t like the segue to the alternate universes. Those that prefer sci-fi didn’t care for the horror inn episode. I think their problem was that they tried to cater to both and kept flipping from horror to sci-fi and then tried to please everyone with an ambiguous ending so it could go either way. It backfired because neither side was satisfied. I think they would do better to stick to one theme per season.

    Somehow you quoted me but that was someone else’s message, not mine.
