    Aaaaw, shucks! Thanks for the heads up, SilverStormm. I did have to search quite a bit to find "us" again. If PepperMonkey reads this: this is January, the mental countdown has begun for both of us! Weepee! Happy New Year to all viewers, wishing you many good meals not made of beetroots and domes and ice cream!

    I must be the only stoopid person on earth not to see Emilia's coat, or simply Emilia, for that matter. Where is it at?

    We don't know why Ty has been missing so much, same with Lou. The person responsible for the show's blog will not reveal anything personal to any actors regarding their absences unless it comes from them. Like that time when the actress playing Mallory made it known that she had opted to quit. It's been two seasons now that fans have been raging at Ty almost constantly MIA, and with good reason. Ty and Amy are indeed the core, it couldn't work without him. :(

    Yes, Caleb is still around. And so is Scott. Damn show, letting important characters just become cameos. And, YAY! the show has been renewed for a 12th season! *does a little happy dance* Hopefully Ty and Lou will be there full time. If not, I bet that the ire of the fans over their ongoing absences will drive the show itself into a no-go for a 13th season. :(

    To fellow Canadians, Here's an interesting article on the economic impacts of Heartland in our country: http://cbcrcblog.com/did-you-know/heartland/ We can only imagine the guilt that would be felt by the showrunners if ever Season 12 doesn't get a go!

    Nailed It!

    What IS that... thing? 3:39 on the first episode and I give up. The premise was so inviting that I'll take that as a double wham, seeing there's no way to go through an episode with that screaming lady full of fake, and almost everything else full of fake. Damn, thought I had found another nice cooking show. :( Amen to that! She was sympathetic right from the start ("I DRINK VODKA!" Hahaha!) Alas, there's only this one shining lady to outbalance the horror of the rest. Hello, show. Goodbye, show.

    I'm kind of new to the series. This Kenda guy is so full of himself and pretty arrogant. I love it. "I'm not a friendly person." You say??? Totally hooked and laughing myself out of the door each episode. I know I should hate him, but he's too funny to. And I betcha that he perfectly knows it. Bastard. ;-)

    Tim! Frigging Tim! I can't stand him either. Apparently, the actor is a big name in Alberta, and he also directs a couple of episodes each season, so I guess we're stuck with him. Meh. I just caught up with the first two episodes, and I must say this was probably the best beginning of a season. They've injected more humor it seems. It was always either Jack or Tim that got the comic parts (in which Tim was never funny). Or have I missed something in the past seasons and just had my eyes opened on the general humor? Lou does grate, but for some reason I'd still want her as my sister. She grates but she's great. Is there going to be a thread for each episode this season? This show really doesn't attract the attention it should, seeing how well it is put together. On a shallow note, it seems like Ty is trying to look like a 40 years old businessman with that new haircut. I laughed it off and mentally called him "Daddy". ;-)

    No, on the contrary, Weiner is doing his own thing and not at all listening to the audience, like LOST showrunners unfortunately did. It was just a joke, the poster said to me that showrunners can't listen to the audience wants and wishes, otherwise the show loses in quality. Mathew Weiner totally agrees with that statement. ;)

    I'd actually be very curious to know. I remember that during the LOST years, credits would always appear no matter what, supposedly due to whatever laws you have in the U.S. regarding credits needing to appear at the beginning of a show, and reading them was like reading spoilers. ("OMG, Frank is not dead!!" Frank appears. "Welp, I kinda had a clue, didn't I?") Have the laws changed since then? It would be neat to know. Matthew Weiner liked this post

    The conversation was about "St. Tyrion" on television vs book Tyrion, not about how many chapters and how much material D&D have to work with. Jon has a lot going both in the books and the series, yet he's not very popular with the TV audience, because many complain about Kit's apparent lack of acting chops - and forever open mouth (I disagree, but it's like a mainstream opinion anyway.) See the many negative reactions to an entire episode dedicated to him last week. Audience response is capital for a network, hence Dinklage's character made more sympathetic - is what I think, not saying it's gospel. Like Winnief said, viewers need someone to root for. It doesn't quite work with Jon but it does with Tyrion. I may be talking bananas, but they're bananas based on some logic. ;)

    I liked the ending scene with Arya on the boat. It was beautifully shot, and looking at this while listening to the music helped with digesting all that went on during the episode. It was an intense finale, lots of stuff going on, lots of little tears running down my cheeks. There will be a rewatch where details stand out more, but for now I'm not ready to think that Tyrion killed Shae in self-defense. While she did try to attack first, the violence on Tyrion's part looked to me like sheer desperation, humiliation, an bold emotional move. Shae, who he had tried to protect from death, was by now at her second treason. The way he said "I'm sorry" twice after the fact sold it for me, show-wise, that he fully intended to kill her no matter whether she grabbed the knife or not. Not consequent to that but related, a TV show with so many villains/gray characters needs to have good people to keep the audience. Their good person was beheaded in S1, and there hasn't been any since. My thinking is that seeing how Dinklage became wildly popular, he was then their chosen anchor for this goal. They kind of did the same with Sansa, too, although Dinklage's charisma is by far the strongest one.
