Re: Last Television Show Watched

That said, I'm not having as much fun with it as I did in the earlier seasons, for reasons I won't go into in details about since you're not caught up. Suffice it to say that I think they're having having some trouble because of the constraints production places on the story. I think you're right. ...

What, he has a special, go-to-confrontations-with-traitors cape? (Also, it still looks like it was made from a bedsheet.)

Actually, yes. :laugh:

Although it's for bad weather as opposed to traitor confrontation.
Seriously?

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I took a look at a few spots in the film yesterday, probably a good twenty minutes of it. A few observations: 1) it was not as bad as I thought it was initially. It still wasn't good, and, since I was buzzing past the boring spots, that may have had a significant effect on my perception. That said, ...

The X-Files , Season One: "Young at Heart." I continue to be amazed that the program made such an impact at the time, until, of course, I recall the time, which I do just before nodding off and missing the payoff, as I did last night. I don't think I ever saw the first season. Maybe not even the se...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

Humans , Episode 1.8. Interesting, open-ended, but that's what season 2 is for. One criticism I would make is that there a virtual blackout on the technique by which these beings are made, programmed, and operate in this fictional universe. They run off wall current, and have rechargeable batteries...

Reading The Fellowship of the Ring . Really coming to realize that I prefer the films to the books. 1) To each his own, but... 2) There's only one book: it's a single novel, published in three volumes, largely due to economics, paper shortages, and publisher nerves in Britain in the 1950s; 3) I'll ...

Odd that the first word we hear from Luke Skywalker after thirty-odd years is "breathe." Something his father couldn't.....I'm here all week folks! Of course Darth Vader could breathe. He just needed a little mechanical help. You don't breathe, you die, after all, and well, he didn't. Die, that is,...

A few additional trailer thoughts, after another viewing: Those podracer-like things...look silly. Why did Kylo Ren smash his helmet? Putting some distance between himself and Grampy? Done on the orders of Snokey? Or did someone else smash his helmet? I'm assuming Luke-like figure with Artoo seen be...

The last good Star Wars film was ESB, and that was a long time ago, in cinemas far, far away. We shall not see its like again. I liked the prequels, especially ROTS. And, I liked Rogue One .
