Really? You do know none of those questions are going to be answered (unless it’s something else that makes questionable sense) because the writers probably don’t even know themselves why Joe has followers - they’re all plot devices to make sure he doesn’t get caught before the finale. You don’t think for one moment it’s absolutely ridiculous why a military skilled soldier would follow Joe apart from the fact it can explain why Joe has guns, or how ridiculous it is that Roderick somehow qualified to be a sheriff even though he’s obviously unstable just because they needed his character to be a sheriff? The two militia guys don’t even follow Joe’s preachy Poe stuff but are somehow still following his cult - another plot device to “add muscle” to Joe’s crew.
But I’m interested in what aspects you think makes the show good. Is the suspension of belief? Like you know this would never happen in real life (god forbid the FBI are this stupid if anything like this actually does happen in real life) so it’s interesting?
Serious? This is an impossible question…. first thing that comes to mind is The Lion King.
I think I’m still watching them all…? Or at least those not cancelled. The only new fall 2012 show I watch immediately when there’s a new episode out is Elementary. I’m up to date with all the others, Nashville, Arrow, Chicago Fire and surprisingly, Beauty and the Beast (I would most likely still be watching Revolution if it wasn’t on some crazy hiatus).
As for new shows from the beginning of the new year the only one that’s sort of interesting is The Americans.. and even that’s only a pilot episode.
I haven’t started The Carrie Diaries (but not hearing rave reviews), didn’t get past the pilot on Deception or Do No Harm. I refuse to give up on The Following just because it’s a great cast… the actual show sucks so far though.
Hope the rest of the new shows are slightly better. I’m conflicted on whether or not to watch Cult because it looks like a disaster, I didn’t like Jessica Lucas in Melrose and, did I mention the thing reads like a disaster.
Slightly random question. Since I moved from the US I don’t really watch much football (… no one outside of America really watches American football) but strangely I do still watch the Super Bowl every year. So yes I did watch it, and again I am always amazed at how long it takes to play a 60 minute game, which was stretched even longer this time coz of the power outage.
No, not yet. I’ve downloaded it but not had the time to watch it - was it any good?
As for films still in cinemas I use HD trailers downloaded from iTunes/Yahoo - this is the only way to get HD videos/scenes. Some people don’t mind using DVD screeners which is the whole film in DVD quality but not great for making gifs.
This one though I should add all sorts of trigger warnings. I can see the audience this is aimed for, I can see why on paper - or maybe even written differently/by someone else - this would be an interesting subject. There’s conflict and there’s asshole boyfriends and there’s sex and while I have no problems with the topics mentioned (the age gap when she’s not even a teenager was slightly freaky) the whole thing feels over the top, over dramatic, with no likeable characters and like I said not that well written.
Not-my-cup-of-tea stories written in beautiful prose, I can deal with. Engaging, interesting books with questionable editing, I can deal with. Slightly disturbing, not sure if researched properly plot with grammar mistakes is something I don’t deal well with.
After a few minutes to cool down after the ending I guess it’s not the WORST book ever. I think I may have read a few which were worse - but I just can’t think of any right now.
01. The Avengers
03. The Hobbit
04. The Artist
05. Zero Dark Thirty
06. Moonrise Kingdom
08. The Deep Blue Sea
09. Rust and Bone
That was totally off the top of my head so it’s not exact.
