Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

saw the campaign, it's so funny how these big-budget comedies are so hit or miss for people, like i don't get how someone can think e.g. hot tub time machine is awesome and the campaign sucks - i thought it was okay, which is the same thing i've thought about pretty much every big-budget comedy i've seen in the last 5 years.

Well I'm not really into fantasy, for one. And at this stage there are so many characters that I can't keep track of it all. Honestly I'm not quite sure what I should be getting excited about. I tend to like gripping dramas with three-dimensional lead characters (like Homeland and Breaking Bad, for example).

Oh, and also I accidentally read the Wikipedia page and know what happens to a certain main character....so there is that.

Same thing happened to me. Not "accidentally" get to wiki page per se, but go to page to figure out who someone is and what is going on and accidentally read too much.

Btw, sick avatar/undertitle tuq. Least you can do considering he got you laid.

And you found out he wasn't? 'Cause that seems wrong. He's that plus a 13 year old's view of sex.

Regarding the Rape guy- Nate Silver seems to think it could cost him 10 points in the polls based on previous events like this. He's currently up by 5. Ooops.

I can see why people don't like GoT, I'm surprised that it's appeal ended up being so broad.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

I can understand not liking GOT at first, because theres a lot of kingdoms, characters and things going on. Once you start to get it though, it starts being goatish (for me it was about 5-6 episodes in). I dont think its really that much like fantasy besides the dragons, though - seems more medieval to me.

GoT smartly hid all the fantasy elements throughout the first season, but season 2 has lots of elements that are pure fantasy.

wtf kind of question is that, I've always been a Braves fan. Going back to Joe Torre as manager, with Dale Murphy, Rafael Ramirez, Claudell "C-Dub" Washington, Brett Butler, Glenn Hubbard, Ken Oberkfell, Pascual Perez, Craig McMurtry, Chris Chambliss, Bruce Benedict, and Steve "Bedrock" Bedrosian TO NAME A FEW. Broadcast on Superstation WTBS with Skip Caray and Pete Van Wieren. That's back when we were bitchslapping your azz around the NL West.
