    S08.E01: Winterfell

    I would have liked to have another scene from the perspective of Missandei, Greyworm, and others in Dany's entourage. What was Missandei doing while Dany did her dragon joyride? Also, why no interactions between Lyanna and Jorah, not even a brief, snide aside from Lyanna about Dany consorting with "traitors"?

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Thinking about how people might hold the Tarlys' burning against Dany, I would laugh if that was what finally got Sansa and Arya on her side. Both of them would remind Tyrion and co of the price of disloyalty -- on the one hand, House Frey got exterminated for betraying House Tully. On the other hand, House Tarly got burned (pun intended) for betraying House Tyrell. And of course, House Bolton got destroyed after betraying House Stark. Both Stark women know the cost of disloyalty all too well.

    Vice (2018)

    I've been wanting to see this and finally did. While Christian Bale was great, everything else felt surprisingly lackluster. Some pretty bad shit happened during those years, but most of it flies by in the blink of an eye. It would have been better if they had just focused on what Cheney did after 2000, especially after 9-11.

    Game Of Thrones In The Media

    Arya as Daria... the show I never knew I wanted (starts at 0:51)!

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    If Sam and the North start giving Dany a hard time about BBQing the Tarlys, I hope Arya stands up and says: "Dudes, I exterminated House Frey. Perspective."

    I can't seem to find the full episode of Nightmare. All I see is The Comedian. Where is it?

    She-Ra And The Princesses Of Power

    The second season trailer is up. It doesn't seem to show all that much.

    This isn't a surprise, but yay! Dragon Prince Renewed for Season 3

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    There's no Lyanna-Jorah scene in the first episode, I take it?

    HM Queen Victoria In The Media

    I wonder if this is just speculation. It would suggest a big time jump is coming. I couldn't picture it happening any time before Albert's death.

    Free Solo (2018)

    Yeah, his girlfriend is the unofficial MVP of the movie. It's sad that she has to center him so much, knowing he won't/isn't capable of being so devoted to her in return.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Kit Harrington already heavily hinted that Jon would tell Dany.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Some idle thoughts after watching the trailer again: When Bran says: "Everything you did up until now brought you to where you were meant to be... home," could it be he's talking to Dany? Or even Arya? It doesn't quite make sense that he would be talking to Jon, as Jon had already returned to Winterfell before going to visit Dragonstone. The way Bran says "home," it sounds as if the person he's addressing has reached it either for the very first time, or the first time in a long time. Doesn't the first one describe Dany's situation? She was trying to get back to Westeros her entire life, doing things along the way that she likely now regrets. Now she's arrived, and even though it's nothing like she thought it would be, she's home. Similarly, Arya had been away from home for a very long time. To get back, she had to train to be a killer and has killed dozens of people. She probably has regrets and doubts, and wonders who she truly is. Maybe Bran is assuring her that she had to go through that journey in order to be able to return to Winterfell. Then again, he could be talking to Jon if Jon is expressing regrets about leaving the Night's Watch. But somehow leaving the Night's Watch doesn't feel as morally difficult (Jon did serve until his death, after all) as burning people to survive or mass-killing people to survive. Plus, Jon already went through this soul-searching in Season Six.

    The Cast of Victoria: Acting Royalty

    I just watched the movie musical Les Miserables, and saw that Kate Fleetwood, the actress who played Feodora, was one of the nasty factory workers who caused Fantine to be fired. A bad guy in every role she plays, it seems. She was helped by Hannah Waddingham, Septa Unella (the "shame" nun) in Game of Thrones.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I wouldn't be surprised if Arya (while scared) was purposely trying to lure the White Walkers down to the crypt.

    History Talk: The Victorian Era

    True, but it had not been called Wettin for centuries. The house at the time was known as Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (or more colloquially, Coburg).

    S03.E08: The White Elephant

    There's that and That said, I will laugh so hard if when Albert dies, he still has that floppy hair.

    History Talk: The Victorian Era

    Ugh, found this at the PBS website: WTF? How hard is it to do basic research and confirm that Albert's house was Saxe-Coburg and Gotha?

    S03.E07: A Public Inconvenience

    Hopefully the older child actors will be better. Not that it will matter if the writing is awful.

    S03.E07: A Public Inconvenience

    Yes, let the stories about the children eclipse the stories about the servants, please.

    The Dragon Prince

    The creators discuss Season 2 and hint at where they are going in Season 3 and beyond.

    S03.E07: A Public Inconvenience

    I'd totally go for a spinoff about Victoria's daughters in Germany.

    S03.E07: A Public Inconvenience

    Along with an overly dramatic storyline featuring At least Vicky would be 12-13 by Leopold's birth, and Bertie a year younger, so they would be played by different actors.

    The Dragon Prince

    Re Sarai, I feel as though the show should have had her and the other Queens die more recently. As pained as King Harrow was by her death, 9 years is a long time. Moreover, Aanya was just a baby when her mothers died; someone would have had to be regent during her first years of life. If the Queens had died more recently, it's more believable that Aanya would take the throne and refuse to have a regent. Otherwise, does anyone else think that Soren isn't going to be cured, even after Claudia's sacrifice/spell? I could see him needing more and more dark magic just to keep going, and feeling unlike himself all the while.

    Voltron: Legendary Defender

    I felt like they could have done more to acknowledge/explain why Katie/Pidge chose to remain in the disguise of a boy. Did it make her feel more comfortable? Did she realize that was who she really was? Did she think the others would find it weird if she suddenly went back to long hair, etc.? Also, Lance did seem to get awfully bland toward the end. I feel bad that his relationship with Allura ended tragically (unless Allura is actually still alive), but I could never buy them as a couple.
