    2019 Women's World Cup

    Yes, I did see England vs Cameroon, and you're right. Generally though, injuries and "injuries" are usually shrugged off in women's soccer.

    2019 Women's World Cup

    These matches are great stuff. I have to say, I've got zero interest in the men's world cup, but the women are playing for real. There's no CRYING, for one thing. If they're actually hurt, they go off the field. If they aren't they don't whine and pretend. Aside from that, the matches are SO...

    hbo Game of Thrones, The Final Season

    All of that is true, but it didn't develop in a very natural way. Dani went from being a clever angel to being fussy and pissy and then jealous and evil in just a couple steps. If the writers had known this was how it was going to end, they would have given some hints of her bad character...

    hbo Game of Thrones, The Final Season

    There was also that potential in Season 9, Episode 12 of Doctor Who, when Ashildr (Maisie Williams) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) take off in a spare tardis.

    Right. EVERYBODY got stupid in this season. High hopes for GOT: The Next Generation, though.

    When will I learn not to post in games forums?

    I'm wondering the same thing, and I have the feeling I would want one myself.

    hbo Game of Thrones, The Final Season

    I'm pretty sure I know how it's going to go: First, Dany is going to flip the hell out and burn everyone who has been at her side up to now. Then she's going to fly around Westeros and burn pretty much everything that moves. Then she settles down to brood somewhere with her dragon. That will be...

    hbo Game of Thrones, The Final Season

    Why did Missandei say, "Dracarys" before her head was cut off? Also, I wouldn't mind seeing a sitcom spinoff called "Arya and the Hound" in which they are somehow transported to present-day Manchester, and solve crimes to a goofy soundtrack featuring a lot of slide trombone.

    I'd love to see Dany throw a pizza on top of the Red Keep.

    hbo Game of Thrones, The Final Season

    At this point the only character and story I'm interested in is Arya. Dany as a pouty kid with no strategy and no plan is not very engaging. I mean, seriously. She had two dragons -- she could have done reconnaissance and seen Euron's fleet from far off. And even if she hadn't, she KNEW they...

    Exactly how many second life accounts do you have?

    I have nineteen. I had nineteen others that I can remember, but I closed those accounts.

    I'm not going to be able to walk after this.

    Nobody Cares about TV and Film

    I am just going to throw in another enthusiasm for Bordertown, the Finnish cop show I mentioned above. You might find it best to start at Season Two, Episodes 1 and 2, which is a complete case. There is a great scene in episode two where the detective and his daughter have a late-night...

    Nobody Cares about TV and Film

    Yeah, I was pretty surprised when someone at work didn't realize that Westworld was a movie before it was a TV series. Admittedly it's from the last century, but I assumed it was generally known. Hanna wasn't Saoirse Ronan's first role, but it did put her on the map. She was only 17 and she...

    Nobody Cares about TV and Film

    I just finished The Umbrella Academy and liked it A LOT. Then, to prepare for watching the new Hanna series, I re-watched the Hanna movie, which better than I remembered, but then I wasn't in the mood for the TV series (yet), but I rememberd that the second season of Bordertown is out on...

    How Trump Could Lose the Election and Remain President

    Whenever I hear this idea, I remember that there are people who have the job of escorting people out of buildings when those people don't want to leave.

    'Game of Thrones' Author George R.R. Martin Says New Book Will Be "Very Complex"

    I don't remember how many of the GoT books I got through, but I stopped when I realized (1) there was AN ENTIRE WORLD chock-full of uninteresting stuff, and (2) I didn't care about any of the characters except Arya. They started out all right, and threw a lot of light on the show, but then it...

    Shows That You Love But Hate A Main Character

    The way that Daredevil kept agonizing over whether he was doing the right thing (by being Daredevil) got to be so tiresome. I loved the show, but that element ended it for me.
