  1. Wouldn't it be different since she saw what he was/likes and was using that against him for the kill? Btw, the main gripe about the scene that shall not be named is still valid: Completely disagree. Reek admitting that he didn't kill the Stark boys was a huge change of character from Reek and back into Theon. Also, Sansa confronting Theon about the Stark boys was out of character for her too. I think that change can be attributed to her nights with Ramsay.
  2. Damn, this is actually a good question. (unless it isn't, I'm not a book reader)Can he warg into Dany,Jon or Tyrion? The White Walkers aren't mindless fools.I agree it wouldn't make sense for him to be able to warg in to any and everybody, but now that Drogon's back I need a new warg candidate. Hodor is simpleminded, so he is able to warg into him easily. I don't think he's warged into anyone else has he?
  3. Neither are the people saying it. I don't think that's it. But possibly they (like most people) never spent a lot of time writing comedy. As someone who spent a number of years writing comedy for stage, local screen, and newspapers (very local/low level, this is not a 'look at me' post) I think I empathize with writers and understand why they do what they do a lot of times better than most people. I'm also less demanding and more easily able to suspend disbelief. You can put almost anything under a microscope and pick it to pieces, for me the bottom line is : is it funny? That's basically it. I was being flippant and a little mean. I agree with Floppo's tastes in a lot of things and I know he isn't dumb. And I am sure a lot of the other people criticizing the "lazy writing" aren't dumb either. But the bottom line for me is the same as yours: does it work as comedy? Kramer plugging a whale's hole with a golf ball and then George Constanza removing it wasn't the least bit realistic either, but it worked. I realize Silicon Valley isn't just comedy, it is also satire, which Seinfeld generally wasn't. And satire has to have elements of realism in order to be effective, but it doesn't have to (and probably can't) be totally realistic. ' Slightly off topic, but Jason Alexander was on Stern last week and was talking about that episode. George's story line in that episode was originally scripted to end with George walking out into the waves. Larry David made a snap decision on the day they were shooting the episode to have the golf ball be the impediment to the whale's breathing and wrote George's "The sea was angry that day my friends..." speech on the spot. Conceived, written, memorized, and delivered in one take. Changed the entire episode in the span of roughly an hour. That is AMAZING. One of my favorite lines delivered by anybody in that whole series and probably one of the top 2-3 lines George ever had, IMO. Agreed. I couldn't believe it was written on the fly, Jason Alexander had roughly 5 minutes to learn it, and they shot one take. You can see Michael Richards balking a little bit when he drops the "Is that a Titleist?" line too - which makes sense now because the audience reaction was so powerful, it probably surprised the cast. Here is the interview where he talks about that. It starts about 7:55, but there is background information before that.
  4. ThisLike many hotties previously (including the oft mentioned Alba), Hannah Davis likely wears the mark(s) of the Jeter. Still smokin, though. Derek Jeter has nailed enough hot tail that one could make an all-star team of tail Jeter has nailedIs there another famous person that could post a lineup that comes close to Jeter?http://d3f5994kvuwcz1.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Screen-Shot-2014-02-13-at-4.24.54-PM.png Maybe Timberlake?What does his lineup card look like? I know it includes Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz and Jessica Biel. I am sure there are several other notables as well.I thought I read Leo DiCaprio has an impressive list of models he's gone through that are smokin but not as famous as some of Jeter and JT's tallies. Earlier, I mentioned Adam Levine who seems to be a hit with Victoria's Secret models. DiCaprio Clooney Ronaldo
  5. Are you guys really complaining about an article with the title of "Will 'Game of Thrones' Solve The Series' Biggest Mystery in Season Five?" ?!? Does that title not imply that they will be talking about the series in its entirety? Then there are two separate spoiler warnings before the bombshell? Granted, you probably couldn't read the second spoiler without actually seeing the bombshell.
  6. Aren't the Frey's Lords over the Riverlands. I thought that Tywin upjumped them? No, the Frey's hold the Twins which is a very important river crossing. They are bannermen of House Tully (I think), who are the lords of the Riverlands.
  7. thedarewall.com should have them does this site requre subscription? No, I've never had to sign-up.
  8. I really miss being excited about NSD. The whole administration at UM needs fired, but they won't do anything until the new president comes in this spring/summer.
  9. I was hoping Ohio St. would, too. There was a lot of chatter yesterday, which clearly was bad info, that he was going to Ohio St. and had informed the Southern Cal coaches as such. I was reading that his family was sold on and really pushing OSU, but it sounds like he wanted to go to USC the whole time. Good luck to him. Yep, can't get em all. More than pleased at LB with Baker (who I've seen) and Hilliard (only read about).Torrance Gibson going to bail? I'm assuming that Urbs is working on him to switch to WR. Just way too much talent at QB for him to overcome. If he does bail(I have a feeling he signs), it means he's determined to play QB. He won't even talk to schools that won't give him a shot at QB. All I've heard is the kid is a good QB, but could be special at WR. But he's too stubborn to understand that.
  10. You're clearly new to the Bachelor/Bachelorette series. The award for biggest tool goes overwhelmingly to Ben Flajnik. It's not even close. No, I remember Ben. I just find this guy worse. Maybe it's because the drama hasn't really been as high this season. I remember the one chick on Ben's season stirring the pot from the beginning.
  11. That's how they keep a big chunk of their viewership and why you've got to love this bachelor. If you believe the premise is completely absurd (which it is), and you were this guy, you'd want to hook up with as many of these women as possible. It's pretty comical, this bumpkin surrounded by 8's and 9's with that big dumb grin after he's sucked face with 8 of them in the course of an evening. Then he makes it a point to emphasize to all of them, hey you guys, I'm here to find a wife. And it sure looks like next week he nails one of them. Then probably a bunch of the women will pretend to consider leaving, but, shocker, they decide to give him another chance.I'll bet in earlier seasons they probably cast a lot more accomplished, type-A women and they learned quickly it doesn't work. They need the wounded ducks, and the chicks who are insanely gorgeous but inexplicably lack any self esteem. Otherwise you're not going to end up with 4 chicks still willing to stick it out at the end. Oh, I'm all for the drama and trying to hook up with every chick but this guy has zero charisma. They had to bring in Jimmy Kimmel in the 2nd episode to at least make the chicks laugh during their dates.
  12. Is this guy the biggest tool they have ever had as the Bachelor? I'm having a hard time actually paying attention and was just about to pull out of the train wreck until they showed previews of next episode.
  13. Looks like it. The Hive of the holy “Treasure Cave” have realized the futility of their endless assault on Skywatch and have retired to lick their wounds and plan their next attack.Respawn timers for monster caves in Skywatch have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 6)Respawn timers for monster caves in Forgotten Shore have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 10)Respawn timers for monster caves in Ember Caves have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 10)Respawn timers for monster caves in the Shattered Coast have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 10)Respawn timers for monster caves in the Barrens have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 20)There is always the Temple of Crota.....not as good and only single player but you can farm it. ETA My guess is that they will be found somewhere else. Yeah, I didn't have as much fun at the Temple.
