    The new season of Lucifer starts next week. I definitely will have to watch it. I read good things about this season in the TV guide and ET magazine.

    Love this show, so glad Netflix has it now. I hope it continues for a few more seasons.

    And what a bingo was moving to NETFLIX - S4 is great... shorter, but much deeper about characters and msin theme....

    They're supposedly filming the pilot now. Rumours about the working title being Bloodmoon.

    Never liked prequels, but I'm looking forward to this.

    If season 8 is sign how good tv show can be without grrm's books - neither hbo directors won't watch this..

    What a load of fuckin' bollocks, they've won the league fair and square, didn't flinch all the way down the line and they might get a fuckin' ban cuz of 'financial irregularities'?  Hows it the players fault that the suits fucked around, why should they be penalized, thats fuckin' bollocks that is.


    Well, some of accusations points to players themselves (40 mil Ł of players payments hidden), and players recive money from club, so ... But don't worry, this is not Legia Warszawa or some Balkan club, so they will fine them few thousands something and tell them not to do bad any more...

    They claimed so in the past, that it was really difficult to get the scaling and CGI right.

    It's a real shame, as they are intended to play a role in the story from the very start.

    I think personally the most disappointing one was Summer. Bran never said anything. He literally treated Summer, like he was his brother Rickon :P

    See I think they believe the twists and random changes in behaviour of characters are all for shock value and surprise. The reality is they are just bad writers. 

    However it is one of the most successful shows of all time and they're rolling in the money.

    On the positive side, regardless of the writing I think people are going to be talking about this season for a very long time. At least it's better than Dexter where literally nothing interesting happened in the final few season (arguably the last 4).

    The last 3-4 seasons of show are biggest reason why I regret GRRM not finishing his story... If he by miracle finish it now, it will not be the same... 

    And yes, Summer was great part of books, Ghost also -

    Spoiler

    but HBO put money in tits&ass so we have 30men army with dragon lying in dirt in front of King's Landing threatening Cersei :facepalm:

    Wow, this is really beginning to piss me off. I hope Varys kills Dany in her sleep or something and Jon ends up on the Throne, even though he's an ass and didn't even pat Ghost who fucking lost an ear for him.

      Reveal hidden contents

    How stupid can Dany be? Does she NOT remember the battle when the Lannister forces were leaving High Garden? The scorpion that almost killed Drogon before he burnt it down? Did she just assume "oh no, they won't try to build another one of those because why would they want to eliminate basically the greatest advantage I have over them?" Urgh. 

     

    and some are defending D&D and their childish storytelling...

    Disaster and every episode is worse then one before...

    All characters are becoming stupid...

    And that Ghost thing - is Direwolf animation that expensive?


     

    Spoiler

     

    Well, they budget went pretty down :D:D:D

    there is what? 30 men army "threatening the castle"

    I know, It's lingers on far too long. Every team below the top two did  literally nothing interesting they might as well not have bothered. We were talking about the title race between Liverpool and Man city in November and its still churning on. We had a Christmas, it's nearly summer now just wrap it up already.

    That title race was predicted in pre season. Mcfc wnd lfc should have played few times between themselves and decide the winner.

    The rest were awful whole season. Imagine Ferguson's MUTD 30 points behind Liverpool...

    It was silly this was never referenced on screen. It's like Meera/Rickon.

    If you watch behind the scenes video, it's clearly something D/D came up with up with.

    They dropped most of the mythology of the books then added their own.

    Also valyrian steel and dragon glass in season 5 suddenly killing wights. In books Dragon Glass can kill a white walker (other), but not a wight (undead). Show was just inconsistent with that part of the story for the purpose of TV.

    Don't get me wrong, I thought this was a great episode until the resolution, but it's to be expected. They can't do plot or consistency, but they do great fan service along with the tits and dragons the show has been sold on since season 5. It's worked out well for them.

    Well 

    "The night is dark and full of plot holes. "

    • Haha 1

  8. Hate the dark in eisode, hate the ending... hate Jon Snow

    Spoiler

    for neglecting Ghost, hope he (Jon, not Ghost) dies soon - He and his dragon queen and their dragons...

    hate D&D for

    Spoiler

    lack of good deaths on screen - only little Mormont girl's was proper one...

    Spoiler

    I just cheer for Cercei now, hope she ruin their happiness :D

    Not big on this ending of the White Walker part of the story with the Night King being killed and all the White Walkers and wight's vanishing or whatever. Seems lazy.

    Given the Night King is a show invention. Also confused as to why everyone exactly everyone believes Bran. Where was the scene where Bran explained to people he could see the future or proofing to anyone except Ed or Arya that he can see things? The whole three eyed raven thing is never explained in the show and it's safe to say it never will be.

    ...And what do D/D have against Ellie Kendrick? It's pretty bad if Meera doesn't show up again with or without her father.

    Bran/ThreeEyedRaven character is just unexplained in tv show, but that's the problem from past seasons. Whole "wargs" part is almost ignored in the show. His story was obviously unatractive for TV but is important for story - it is one of Tv problems - you have to combine action with background stories and not become boring for millions of people - so they focused on action and tits and lost some of the story. I guess, we'll have more holes until the end...

    I want Arya, Tyrion, Brienne, Jamie and Jon to live. Oh, and Tormund. Any other death I can accept. Except of course dragons or direwolves. I care about them more than the people. 

    Well, after 1st 2 eps, it seems that D&D are pushing that noone is safe - eve4y character did smth to earn death before end...

    Except direwolfs - they must live, dragons? - whatever...

    OK, Tormund should stay :)

    I have to say. There's some relationships in this show where the chemistry isn't really that great or makes sense. I mean I don't buy why Danny would trust Tyrion. I don't buy Danny and Jon, though that's probably just the acting. Jon and Arya last week was weird too ect.

    However Sansa/Theon do have on screen chemistry, also much more believable. Do hope Theon makes it next week. I think Alfie Allen is one of the shows better actors. Theon's also one of my favourite characters in the book. 

    I think alot of secondary characters are gonners next week.

    Sansa/Dany also works...

    But yes, Theon is brightspot of the show...

    I would guess some of main characters could say goodbye also next week...

    Another tragedy in human history... 

    And this one is really troubling, since it was few coordinated attacks on different sites...

    Probably victims from all over the world since targets were Christian churches while celebrating  biggest Christian feast and 5 star hotels...

    Number of victims is constantly rising...

    Trully sad day...

    I think it's sad, and I can understand that it's an exceptionally long-standing part of a city and a nation's consciousness and history, it's a tremendous piece of architecture and construction, it's a world-famous icon, a hugely popular tourist site. I've visited myself and have memories of climbing the spiral stairs, sitting beneath the bells and the view over Paris from its towers.

    However, I do think that there's a complete lack of perspective on how relatively tragic this is in comparison to a lot of other terrible stuff that's going on in the world. If billionaires could sit up and suddenly pledge hundreds of millions of dollars to famine victims in Yemen, or plastic cleanup in the oceans the way they did for one building in a first-world capital city, that would probably be a far better use of their money.

    I did feel a wee bit uneasy when that Croatian guy was being lynched for pointing this out a few pages ago, I thought the accusations towards him of being unfeeling were quite harsh when actually he was pointing out that there are far worse things happening with far less publicity and public outcry (although I accept that his way of doing it was quite blunt at a point where people seemed quite emotional and probably weren't ready to try and view the situation objectively).

    No need to feel uneasy. This is a forum and averybody have right to their opinion and here is the place to put it out.

    I m not part of "offended" generation.

    Luckily for me, I grew up in Zagreb so didn't see much of destruction, but what was frustrating, when "they" destroyed "our" churches, or "we" destroyed "theirs" - was bigger news, and bigger scandal then 10-20 dead or wounded...

    As I said - big damage was made, but not tragedy for me...

    Tragedy would be if fire was not an accident...

  14. Its not tragic. It fucking old church...

    People dying all over the world for nothing is tragic, but this... Even extinction of species is more tragic than this...

    Pile of sticks and stones burnt down... 

    Too bad, but not tragedy if no casulties involved....
