I'm wondering the point of the research as well. I've a guess but there are board rules.

This whole roofie thing is mostly urban myth isn't it? It takes teams to kidnap people even in the movies. Even in the detective novels the PI never gets the ole Mickey Finn until he's out of the public eye.

Someone is going to spike the drink of a random woman at a bar, and figure the dosage and timing perfectly in order to get her away from her friends and past the bouncers while she can still walk. If you can do that in the first place you probably don't need to spike her drink.

I'm thinking they're going to have a hard time getting people to admit they've committed a crime for a mere $40.

Just guessing but it seems likely the zoo will take care of the cubs. They'll stay in Columbus for the time being and then by whatever the protocols are for the management program for the preservation of the animals they'll either grow to become part of the exhibit in Columbus or be transferred to other zoos.

I'd guess they'd make some effort to get the mother to take care of them as well so if she has another litter she'll know what to do from the start.

I'm a grown man but I'll still eat Bulleyes until I've made myself sick.

Comment 22 Apr 2015

I would have watched a show with The Hound, Arya, Brienne, and Pod as wondering bandits affiliated with the Brotherhood without Banners or some other Robin Hood-esque idea. I like Brienne and Bronn in the books but the actors in question have gotten so much more out of those characters.

They're getting pretty far off the reservation from the books at this point so it should make for enough surprises both ways.

And in case anyone didn't know the actress playing Brienne really is that tall:

I think they're going to need that at minimum. I think they're going to need a whole episode worth of stuff on the tourney at Harrenhal. But they've also left out of the show all the prophecy stuff and so on involving the White Walkers. There's a big gulf there for the show. That tourney looms large in the books.

I think the Greyjoys will be off the board after this season. The whole thing with Victarion is gone. I think Theon dies helping Sansa escape Winterfell with Brienne and Pod (filling in for the spear wives) and that's the end of the Greyjoys.

Comment 21 Apr 2015

My big questions are what will happen in the North with Sansa and Littlefinger and the Boltons.

I'm seeing Theon as the alive in the books dead in the show character we've been hearing about. Brienne and Pod with the help of Theon (who dies in process of earning his redemption) help Sansa escape her betrothal to Ramsay and flee only for Brienne to end up having to turn to Stannis for help.

Comment 21 Apr 2015

I think the Ironborn not named Theon, Stoneheart, and Aegon are more or less excised from the show. Tyrion and Vareys might still meet up with Aegon and company in Volantis but I don't think so. Maybe the Septa and the Maester might be along but Dany will be it.

Comment 21 Apr 2015

Many of the characters are younger in the books than the show. Sophie Turner (Sansa) would have been seventeen when her character claimed to be fourteen on the character's wedding night. Jon Snow isn't even twenty while the actor is now twenty-eight. Emilia Clarke is now twenty eight as well so Daenerys is considerably older on the show than her book counter-part.

She makes a mess of things in the books as well. You are not being too hard on her. There is a lot more "you go girrrrrlllll" in the show.

The thing I think about is the difference between say Joffery and Robb Stark. Joffery thought the kingdom a toy to play with as he pleases. Robb was brought up to know that ruling was a responsibility. Daenerys is caught between the two theories. Her brother made it about their right to rule and pushed her in the direction of Joffery. But as she's ruled and been surrounded by more honorable men like Mormont and Sir Barristan she's learning she needs to be more like Robb.

I would participate. Be sure to put "Spoilers" in the title if you create it.

Batman and Supes have been variously squaring off in comics for some considerable time. In "The Dark Knight Returns," widely considered one of the greatest Batman stories ever, Supes and Batman have a climatic knock down drag out. Comics writers have been variously riffing on that for decades now. A more recent example and pretty good one is in the "Hush" storyline.

Frank Miller author of "The Dark Knight Returns" basically was the first to suggest that Batman and Superman wouldn't really like each other. To suggest that they each see the world through a very different lens.

And you're going to give that "It's not Tatooine" any credence after the bald faced lie about the villain in STINO: Into Darkness not being Khan?

Comment 16 Apr 2015

There isn't a timeline shift. The EU from books, comics, and games no longer counts. They'll take from it or ignore it as they please. I'd guess that at most you'll get some sort of throw away line about him in passing as an easter egg or nostalgic nod.

Comment 16 Apr 2015

I am consistently disappointed by this film-maker's work. I didn't see anything there to make me think this won't be disappointing as well. Product cinema made by focus group and marketing.

Over/Under on how many minutes before Han shoots first? I'm going with under 10. Scroll, Star Destroyer looming over the planet, cut to Han in an argument, shoots the guy before he can draw down, shouts of joy from the audience in that they're not in a special edition or prequel Star Wars. From then on it won't matter one bit what's in the rest of the movie.

And lightsabers for crossguards is still dumb.

Nice. It wasn't Coach Combs. Isn't he naturally caffeinated?

DV for mental image I can't unsee.
