Some comments

We just finished watching the final and reunion show.

I thought Mike pulled a Colby, thankfully not.

I missed the opening and closing statements. I think they are important.

Mike got the check that night, no more Morning [more]

Re: GoT S5 E6

The rape scene is horrible. Obviously.

I hope you don't think that we're condoning rape or glorifying it or anything like that. Simply because the subject of the scene is reprehensible doesn't take away from the fact that the actors [more]

Re: GoT S5 E6

My take on the rape scene is that it was needed not to illustrate Ramsay's character, but because it marks the beginning of Theon's snapping out of his "reekness" and going back to being Theon Greyjoy.

I haven't read the [more]

Re: Predictions?

Sierra.

I think she'll break out and win the final IC and that'll be it. Mike/Mama C need to win one each for either of them to win. I think that's possible, but not likely.

Dragon Age: Inquisition

Wow, this is a MASSIVE game. Compared to DA2 this game has way more variety and a much better story so far. I am hours upon hours into it and still have tons of stuff to do. However...

Re: The Blacklist 043015

I have half the season yet to watch on my PVR. I'm really thinking of dropping it. It too was getting stupid.

I love how in these cop shows nobody ever calls for backup.

Re: "Helix" Unravelled

I didn't even know the second season had aired. That might be part of their problem. That and the first season did what most shows do and got way too comical at the end.

Not a lot said

Just caught up on the latest two episodes and I've got to say I certainly didn't miss much avoiding this board. Wow, are we not interested in this season. I can see why though after watching these episodes back to back. There isn't a lot to love here [more]

Re: Game of Throne 4/19/15

My guess is we don't see Arya Stark for a while as she's in training with Jacun Hunar (again, I apologies for the spelling - always thought Tyrion's champion was from Dawn till the description said it was Dorne). That's a shame as I like [more]

Re: GoT 4/12/15

Thank you, spoilers are so tempting but I'm working really hard at avoiding them.

As always, the episode was too short.

Re: Dumb-azz Rodney

Yeah, gotta admit that any thought I had that Rodney might be smarter than he looks was removed today. There is nothing that boy is doing that can't be immediately sussed out.

Re: Dragon Age on Sale!

Okay, updated drivers and full-screen windowed mode and everything is fine, except the load times.

....and the camera. Trying to do tactics is difficult but that's what behaviours are for.

Now I'm enjoying it.

Re: Dragon Age on Sale!

Wow, this is a game that has been out for a while. I don't have a system that can take full advantage of it but man, graphical issues, sound issues, interminable load times, and I just crashed to desktop for no reason. Plus, I can't get it to talk to [more]
