Oh! I fucking LOVED that! Keep watching. It really is like House of Cards in Twin Peaks version of the Vatican. Doesn't get any less weird, but I gobbled that shit right up!

And Chibnall worked on Broadchurch (sooooo fucking dour!) with Whittaker (who was pretty much loathsome, but maybe that was just her character?).

He also worked on Torchwood, which makes me think we might actually be getting a much darker Doctor.

I don't know much about him but I hope he'll be an improvement on Moffatt, who started OK, I think, but ended up moving too close to comedy with Capaldi.

Have you seen the most recent season?

I ended up really liking Capaldi. Didn't at first, but he grew on me. Plus he looks quite a bit like Brady now that he's older.

Anyway, the most recent season had some dreary moments for sure. The scope was fairly cinematic, and the ratio of winner episodes to duds was high (xmas special and "Smile" were the only real duds). I really enjoyed it. And I think Moffatt has fairly good instincts when it comes to big, season-spanning story arcs.

Seriously, Missy is probably the best new addition to the show in years.

Broadchurch is a good show (Tennant! Also the chick who played Gwen in Torchwood plays an altogether loathsome sociopath) but the tone is sooooo fucking dour. Like it's setting out to rip you a new emotional asshole by forcing you to enoathize with the worst fucking people, and the only good folks are constantly raked over the coals. It's rough I tells ya!

Game of Thrones has JUMPED THE SHARK! 4 wasted pointless, boring minutes focused on a translator and a eunuch trying to dry-hump? BORING. An entire ARMADA of creaking wooden sailing ships SNEAKS up to another fleet of boats? Enough to actually ram them? NO ONE SAW THEM COMING?? Ridiculous. The dialogue is SHIT now (since the show-runner are now making up shit since they have passed the writing of the series author). who is with me?

I actually think he was far better than a lot of the scripts Moffatt gave him, but sometimes, when the two came together (Heaven Sent?) it was great.

I feel the same about Clara. Everyone seemed to hate her but I thought she had the potential to be one of the great companions. I just don't think Moffatt really knew what to do with her. Neil Gaiman seemed to have a far better grip on her character.

Completely agree.

... Also, news in that the new companion is gonna be Kris Marshall, who was actually a front runner to be the next doctor. I can see why he would've fitted the Dr role but personally I can't stand him. So when Whittacker was announced my 1st thoughts were, at least it's not Kris fucking Marshall. And now this!

EDIT: It turns out it's actually just a rumour. (Here's hoping.)

Don't you know everything is all set up this season? Since they are splitting the episodes, and going 7 episodes this year and 7 episodes next year, every episode this year will be set up for the last seven episodes of the series. If you want are major development, upon major development, and/or resolution you've been watching the wrong series.

all set up = BORING.

what is missing is George Martin's words, his dialogue, which was the best part of the show. Starting last season the tv show is ahead of the text, so they are using standard TV trope exposition dialogue (WHICH I FUCKING HATE) instead of the great dialogue of season's past. It makes Daneryris sound even stupider than the shit acting by Emilia Clarke makes her look.
It makes everyone's speech sound like it was written by the same dialogue-writing algorithm. fuck it was BORING.

Haven't seen last night's episode but if that is true that's bad news for the creators of the show. Up until last season they've had Martin there himself to probably go over scripts and has probably been able to say Tyrion wouldn't say that, Jon Snow wouldn't say that, etc. I think he's said he's had little input this season cause he's been focusing on his own writing. Doesn't bode well for the creators of the show, if they can't stick the landing to Game of Thrones it will probably be seen as the one of the biggest let downs. Not to mention they aren't winning favors by announcing their "What if the South Won the Civil War" show last week.

Everyone forgets that there was one black character in GoT, the pirate, who left and was never heard from again. hahahahahha.
 


everyone in fantasy novels is always so goddamned white. even the black slaves of the Unsullied are at BEST, high yellow.....


show about white folks doing magic = fantasy! sword & sorcery! How fun!!!!

show about black folks doing magic = voodoo! cannibalism! Satan! Satan! SATAN!!!!!

hahaha

Just ranting.

I will not post spoilers about GoT, for those who still need to watch it, but ravens now fly at light-speed, the white walker army is marching at a pace of just 1/5 of a mile each day, and then resting for two weeks, even though a wildling girl dragging along an ever-stretching cripple boy/man managed to make it to the Wall in like a day? Supposedly weeks have passed between last week episode and this weeks and all the Northern Lords are still sitting around at Winterfell just chillin and talking? for weeks? and then Jon Snow says, "fuck it, " I am going to ride for days, to a port that will let me sail so that in a few weeks I can get to where I am going." but he will be there first thing next week's show.....

Once Martin was out of the picture the greatness slid into serviceableness. It's just people standing around describing plot points that a better series would SHOW. Never say what you can show is the first rule of visual drama. GoT is now saying all, and showing nothing.

Is he that ginger chap? I saw some "story" about the next doctor being a ginger chap several months ago. And the Doctor's always wanted to be a ginger, so that would have been nice, but I didn't like the dude's face.
