Back to GoT.
Just exactly what has Peter Dinklage been in before? I ask knowing I could quite easily Google that shit, but I was just wondering if you've seen any of his previous work, as he is far and wide the best actor in this series by a head and shoulders, and I was wondering if the little fella had shown this greatness before this series. Yep, irony at its best in that statement--sorry, I couldn't help myself.
Game Of Thrones rocked my world, man. Shame there wasn't more of the ice zombie things, but that part of the show is probably gonna dominate a good part of this season, so I can be patient.
The stuff with Daenerys was as usual my favourite part of the show. Perhaps it's because the whole Dograthi deal is just so different to the usual medieval fare that has dominated this genre since its inception on TV. There's also the fact that she has fucking dragons--always winning in my nerdy book! Their inclusion in the series is also reminiscent of Steven Ericksons Tales of the Malazan, which is hands down my favourite piece of entertainment in any medium. Totally worth checking out if you're in any way a book reader. Speaking of books, and completely off topic, I recently listened to the audio of World War Z, which is a fantastic post zombie war survivors tale of immense proportions. Read it!
A whole another season of The Governor doesn't appeal to me in the slightest. Granted, he kinda sort of came into his own in the last three or so episodes, but for me, that was supposed to be the shows way of having him go out with a bang. Guess I was totally off there. Should have kept up with the happenings behind the scenes, eh?
I'm probably the biggest Carl hater on the planet, so that totally would work for me. Failing that, there's always the whole getting half of his face blown off thing. That was a personal favourite moment of mine in the comic. Sadly, though, we both know this wont happen due to the obvious show limitations on how far they're willing to go.
At least they offed the right person in Andrea. That shit was the TWD equivalent of a Cena heel turn @Mania for me
Why the fuck this episode never ended with the death of the governor I'll never know. Definitely ended with a whimper, which was a shame as this was definitely one of the strongest showings of the entire season. It was my hoping that Rick and Carl were going to leave the prison in the same sort of manner in which they left in the comic. Granted, that would have seen Judith somehow be killed off, which I just can't see happening in this PC version of events, but I can't be faulted for hoping. Here's hoping that this prison storyline is finished real early in the next season.
I know that part of the TV series' "charm" is that it differs somewhat from the comic, but it's really gone off track in terms of how things are going down. That should be a good thing, but, unfortunately, this clearly ain't the case.
Watching TWD now, and I can honestly say that I've never truly hated a TV character like I do Andrea. I'm over the moon that she got bit. I will say, though, this episode has been alright thus far. Final synopsis once it's finished.
Just downloaded both, plus the latest Shameless. Will get back to you about all three once I've watched them. Honestly, I really wasn't expecting much from TWD, I mean, it's not like it's set the world on fire with this second part of the third season.
LOL. You must listen to alot of music... every album I tell you to check out you have lol. and it's not like they are similar stuff.
Hey, you should check out the album the '59 sound by The Gaslight Anthem and tell me what you think. If you can find time
I'm with you on the character of Derek.
Ricky does have it in him to take things too far at times, and I don't think this is it. Actually no, not too far, he'll do something harmlessly for a complete joke, but which can be taken offensive by some, with which people jump on, and construe as too-far. At this point Ricky knows what he's doing and try's to legitimise it, and sticks to his guns, when, I think even he knows that some people see things differently. But, he'll remain adament, and not "apologise" for things to spite the real 'jumper-on-er's', if that makes sense? lol. Shit. But, is a a heartfelt character. You can tell he loves him.
It would be easier if I was conversing verbally. I'm tired. I'm not going to be able to stay up for the Rumble. I know it.
Yeah, I think that's what came up in my thought process - the too much-ness. It was an emotional truck-load in one ep. But, there is a 6-part series beginning on the 30th of Jan over here, so it'll be interesting. I imagine they'll have the continued ongoing portrayal of Derek and Hannah, focusing in on their lives, with singular episodic hijinx involving Derek and Dougie. Will it be getting shown your way, Ape, or will you just watch online?
Ricky did have a great performance, no questions, but he's been doing it for years, lol, even that character. It's just Karl's never acted before, and it was a nothing performance, really, I know, but it was good to see, sort-of understated. I'm still of the opinion Karl's mostly a genuinne person. Karl's just a production tech, and worked with Ricky and Steve back when they did Radio years ago. I still listen to podcasts and webbooks with the three of them from around 10 years ago, when there was little mention of Karl.
