The Strain: The Box Review (Article) - 7/21/2014 1:39:09 PM

I've read the books and I've really enjoyed the first two episodes.  I think that the characters have been great so far.  Curious to know how many seasons this will go? One per book?

Game of Thrones Will Continue Without Books (Article) - 7/16/2014 11:06:37 AM

Sanity, I do hope Winds of Winter comes before next spring as well because while I don't mind so much now that the show is overtaking the books, I would still rather read them first.

Looks like you'll have to stop watching already Sanity since they have already caught up with the books in some stories and will definitely catch up with others during the next season.  Anything with Sansa next season will be brand new and Tyrion and Dany's stories are already getting into Dance with Dragons territory.  I used to say the same thing about not watching if the show caught up, but I always thought that might only happen when it came down to the last novel.  But the show has been so good and knowing that George his highly involved in the writing process has made me change my mind. I'll enjoy the show and then enjoy the books even more once I read them.

Really looking forward to seeing how the characters from the books translate to screen.

PENNY DREADFUL: Grand Guignol Review (Article) - 7/2/2014 7:19:28 AM

I enjoyed the first season very much. Yes it was a bit predictable especially Ethan being a werewolf. Called that almost immediately since he didn't care he was screwing a woman with a deadly disease. I think this season was really trying to figure out what the show was, and now that the team is together, hopefully the show gets tighter.

@silentkiller - As far as Ethan not changing during the fight, I just assumed the moon hadn't come out yet cuz they made a point of showing him staring out at the moonlit sea before he changed.

I'm not too surprised that people felt weird about the skeletion warriors.  For myself, I loved it, but their appearance did surprise me a bit.  I think what the designers were going for was to show that these wites have been dead a long time and were obviously completely decomposed, unlike the wites we've seen before.  They didn't seem to have the glowing blue eyes either.  I think if they had kept the design closer to the ones we saw in the army passing Sam at the end of season 2, there wouldn't be so many complaints.  I think the child of the forest shooting her magic was the most overt use of sorcery yet so I'm sure that added to the shock for some viewers.  And if you want to logic the fun out of it, in that kind of cold, those bodies would not have decomposed so much.  Amazing fight scene though and I didn't mind that Jojen dies a bit earlier than he should have.  

I did think the Three Eyed Crow could have been executed better as well.  In the books he is described as skeletal and the roots are growing through him.  He should also only have one eye.  Minor details but would have been cool to see. 

And could peopel please stop posting spoilers without a warning!  I'm amazed that this still has to be stated on this site.  We should respect our fellow fans enough to not spoil things for them.

Delete that post about Lady Stoneheart in the season 4 finale thread.  That was a dick move man.

Penny Dreadful: What Death Can Join Together Review (Article) - 6/18/2014 7:57:42 AM

Yeah it sucked that Van Helsing was dispatched so soon.  He was such a cool addition.  I'm sure they are waiting for the finale for Ethan to show what he really is.  But it won't be much of a surprise since I'm sure most of us have guessed.  It is a great show but I agree with Jarret that it's hard to see where it's all going other than finding Mina.  And is Vanessa really a conduit for the devil?  I thought it's supposed to be Amun Ra like they spoke about a few weeks ago.

Seriously, you can't put quotation marks in a post?  I was not able to post my last comment until I delete the quotes I had around the word whore.  I've said it before but the spam filter on this site is way too annoyingly sensitive. 

Game of Thrones: The Children Review (Article) - 6/16/2014 7:47:32 AM

I think it's really important to note that Tyrion was definitely not seeking out Shae. His father, yes, but not Shae. He was completely surprised to see her in his father's bed and him killing her was a crime of passion and revenge. If he had had time to think about it, I don't think he would have killed her. Tywin's end was great, I just wish Tyrion and Jaime had talked about Tysha like in the books since that was a big motivator for Tyrion's hate for his father and why he was so sensitive to the word whore.

Great finale overall. Glad they went back to the wall since I thought that arc was done with last week. The wights attacking Bran and company was badass as well as Brienne and Sandor's epic fight. Maise Williams just kills it as Arya. Her cold stare while Sandor was begging for death was just perfect. I can't wait to see her story play out next season.

And I really thought a certain lady was going to be introduced as a last scene but they are still saving that.
