I agree, to a large extent.

Agreed. When Lyanna Mormont, a ten year old child out leaders you, your in trouble
Jon has never made a particularly compelling lead for me. Partly due to me not finding Harington to be a particularly good actor and partly due to the character’s stupid decisions just being met with “hero” plot armor. How he, and everyone who obliviously follows him, aren’t dead yet is beyond me.
The latest iteration of the groundbreaking, influential TV classic The Twilight Zone takes some big chances with its first two episodes, both available now on CBS All Access. Here’s a quick rundown:
Ellaria Sand is just all around bad on the show. I have no idea what the writers were going with her, but they completely biffed it.
And lost because he was being a total jerk and got carried away with himself. Like everybody from Dorne.
I'm also pissed that they did away with the reveal that Prince Doran was backing Dany the whole time. They didn't have to include the one son of his heading off to Mereen to marry her since all that accomplished was releasing Dany's other dragons but they could have kept the reveal.
I suspect that they just had bad casting and bad direction during the Dorne stuff and the extremely demanding and weird production of the show meant they basically just had to cut it down as much as possible and sprint through it instead of fixing it.
I was willing to buy the notion that Ellaria would try to assassinate Myrcella but the notion that Prince Doran would be dining with her after she’d essentially launched a coup was too much.
Letting her live made some sense within the theme of weakness within the Dornish palace but having her actually dine with Jaime…
That subplot was truly so bad that you could have almost read it as an intentional nuking of more “strong female character” types, drowning them in tropes and uselessness so the showrunners could get back to the white guys up North. But more likely it’s just that they needed Dorne for a couple of chess moves and…
And here we come to the worst part of Season 5: The Dorne subplot.
Hearn’s actions leading up to getting knocked out remind me of every football player that ever tried to start something with me in college. The puffing out of the chest, walking right up to the guy and looking down at him to remind him how much bigger he was. Lots of arms out to the side in the “what are you going to…
I bet her pre-nup is super sad.
I still remember A Night without Armor, Jewel’s poetry book. It was weird as hell.
Hard pass. $1 is too much.
I like a lot of this, but not loving the part about my dad and who would “have a dick in me.” Something about it doesn’t work for me at all.
The most painful show I ever wanted to watch.
This man has been alone in a room making deals with the likes of Putin and Kim Jong Un and I don’t think we’re going to know just how awful those deals were until it’s way past too late.
Green Book steals the name of a book created by an African American man literally as a survival technique and uses it to tell a story about a white man generously coming to see a black man as his equal and thereby magicking away the problem of centuries of institutional racism.
We have a local conservative talk radio station in Birmingham and they are eating this story up. Dude fucked up big time and is making real racially motivated crimes look like a joke.
