  1. Episode Synopsis: Varys betrays his queen, and Daenerys brings her forces to King's Landing. Reminder: There is open air book talk here. If you are just watching the TV show and you don't want to stumble into any book talk you should leave now. Book Talk assumes you have read all the books to date. Any information from unpublished books, such as preview chapters should be in spoiler tags.
  2. I figured that since Arrow has a forum, there should be a thread for Oliver Queen in comic books. For me, I have some exposure to Green Arrow . . . mostly through Brad Metzler and Judd Winick's runs on the book; the former exploring the will of a hero (Ollie) who wound up coming back to life. I also have the "Hard Traveling Heroes" collection from the Seventies . . . that's the run of Green Lantern where Ollie and pal Hal Jordan explore America and the hot button issues of the day. From what I can remember, that's also when Ollie became a hardcore liberal and grew the sweet mustache and goatee, becoming truer to the Robin Hood myth. I'm not following the "new52" version of Ollie, but I've heard good things about what writer Jeff Lemire has done for the book. What stories have you guys read about Green Arrow? Do you like his current look, or did you think he should've stayed a Batman knockoff with an archery motif?
  3. Here's a spoiler thread because I guess we'll need one. You can talk about: Things mentioned in reviews (because they've seen pretty much of all of the episodes) that have yet to be addressed on the screen. The books in case the show overlaps with the books. Other versions of Perry if you think the show is hinting they might go down a similar path as other adaptations have taken. About that last one, if you want to talk about the Raymond Burr series specifically and it has nothing to do with this show, you can take it to the Perry Mason thread for that show.
  4. Here is the spot to talk about the actual case; especially during the series airing, discussion of the case, the book, and the killer should happen here, and not the episode topics. So talk about the Golden State Killer, the book I'll Be Gone In The Dark, and all things related. Thank you!
  5. A place to discuss particular episodes, arcs and moments from the show's first season. Please remember this isn't a complete catch-all topic -- check out the forum for character topics and other places for show-related talk. There is Open Book Talk here. All published books and spoilers are allowed. Non-Book Watchers, your S01 thread is here. Witty subtitle welcome.
  6. Here's a topic for questions about the comic and how it (may) relate to the show, I tagged it as spoilers but this isn't a "spoiler" topic for actual show info, just spoilers in the sense that these themes and stories may be played out on the show.
  7. Discuss Stargirl's comic origins here and not in the episode threads.
  8. This topic includes spoilers and information from all the books. Please proceed with caution if you haven’t read any or just some of the books. You can speculate and analyze both the show and the book series as a whole. For specific book discussion, check the individual book threads. Please use spoiler tags when discussing TV spoilers and unpublished works. Some useful links: Diana Gabaldon's page on the series, Chronology, and Family Tree.
  9. Use this thread to talk about the upcoming novels including the teaser chapters from TWoW that have already been released. The latest excerpt is called "Mercy." It's an early draft of one of Arya's chapters that Martin has since rewritten. http://www.georgerrmartin.com/excerpt-from-the-winds-of-winter/
  10. Roose and Ramsay. Lovely guys. Your input?
  11. Short Synopsis: In the 20th century, Brianna traces her parents' life in 18th century colonial America. She goes back in time and Roger follows at her heels.
  12. Short Synopsis: One big Fraser clan in the 18th century America colonies just before the American Revolution. Jamie is stressed.
  13. Brought over from episode 1 Dulcinea thread since it discusses book specific things. A story told on screen will require different things than one told in print. This is an adaptation so changes an adjustments will need to be made in order to effectively relay information. With a few changes and two or three minutes of screen time, we have some big world building, tons of character development and exposition and set ups for future possible plots where in the novels this stuff was laid out over hundreds of pages and across five different books and counting. Space is harsh, space is dangerous, there are pirates who don't hesitate to attack and kill making it very dangerous to answer distress calls. Then there's Holden, a seemingly unambitious man who has trouble following the rules and often thinks in black and white without fully considering the consequences of his decisions. In a few short scenes, we know who Holden is, which isn't yet different than who he is in the books. The few changes are not relevant and don't cause big changes to the overarching plot. Naomi is not a change to the plot, though the way the interactions went on the Donnager is different. Naomi is a seeming mystery. She's mega smart and has several advanced degrees in the show and the books, and yet she's working on a shit-ship like the Canterbury. There has to be a reason, right? Just like there was a reason that the once ambitious Holden found himself comfortable working on the Cant for five years. The careful viewer would already see that Naomi's neck tattoo is enough to make one question whether or not she has a connection with OPA. In Leviathan Wakes, the Roci crew works directly with OPA. In later books, the pasts of the various characters are examined. We learn much about Naomi. We also continue to learn about the OPA. The first few episodes treat them like only a terrorist organization. It's similar to in the books. Until we learn more. So far, I really think the adaptation is working well. All of the changes make sense. The characters are roughly as I imagined. The only major issue I've had is the crash couches. They are such weaklings when they should be big things and I'm annoyed by the characters turning their heads and moving around when in high g burns. I'm guessing the process of filming and editing required the crash couches to be barely visible around the cast so I can live with that.
