    Deadly Class

    I've read it plays like Harry Potter, except with assassins. I'm not a fan of SyFy's original programming in general, but this one piqued my curiosity.

    Any you googly eye'd TV addict, weirdos going to work it into your rotation? yes? no? meh?

    [EDIT] I think it debuts on SyFy tonight.


    I have big love for the source comic and writer Remender is co-showrunner so i'm in for this.
    Only seen half the premiere so far but like - not love, but the feelings could grow.

    Elemental forces are aspects, not individuals.

    Kaminsod was a love god whose aspect was warped when he was yanked out of his world and dropped from orbit onto Malazanland.

    We don't know who Edgy is. Hints suggest he tried to rule Shadow, failed, and now is one of its strongest guardians.

    Handed my notice in (so to speak) with the falconry centre. It'd been coming for a bit, it's mostly a health choice (it's taking me longer and longer to recover and the Fibromyalgia has been spiking for months) but there were some ethical things I wasn't happy about. It's upsetting because I've enjoyed it so much, but it was starting to feel a little compromising because of ethics (people and birds) as well and that's never good. We parted on good terms and they've asked if I would mind helping with the odd bit of research, which I've said yes to, it's what I enjoy the most anyway. Does feel good to have made the decision.

    Read Fool Moon last night.

    about a 1/4 of the way in the pace picks up and doesn't relent, so I just kept reading. A step up in quality from book 1 I'd say, enough to bring me back for book 3


    Butcher does frantic pacing really well, especially with his first person novels.


    There was point around book 3 where i found it too much, in the sense that he followed the same kind of beats in each book... Harry gets case, gets the crap kicked out of him, runs around trying to catch a break, catches his breath, things get worse, he gets beat some more, he saves the day. Book 4 steps away from that very nicely tho and he mixes it up for the rest of the series to day so that when he does frantic it feels less like 'i just read this' and more like 'how the fuck is he gonna get out of this one?'.

    Watched the first three eps of DC's TITANS (netflix), and I had SOOOOOO written this show off as garbage after seeing the trailers...but I'm happy to eat a lot of crow.

    It's excellent! Like I'm Really impressed. It's definitely not TEEN Titans mind you....much more like Daredevil in tone...but well written, acted, soundtracked ect.

    Solid, solid stuff.


    Watched the first two eps of TITANS.

    HOLY.
    CAPEFUCK.

    This is actually very good.

    Edgier than the CW DC stuff. Better pacing than Marvel/Netflix.

    "Fuck Batman" indeed.

    I'm sure this is going to ruin someone's childhood but i don't care... it's entertaining, the pacing is solid, the acting isn't bad, the action is violent as hell and well executed, and (so far) it fits within whatever version of the DCU you care to place it if you care about that sort of thing.

    Because some mobile browsers don't resize and it makes the thread unreadable.

    Just out of curiosity, why is it necessary to spoiler big pics on this forum? They go off the page and don't cause the text to unwrap, and they get resized in mobile browsers. I don't mind doing it; just asking.

    There is a word to describe that pic, I just found one in the depths of my convulsing brain. It's DISTURBING but in a funny way.

    If you're keeping score, I think my conversation (in a WoT thread, I think) with that one noob-troll about how to get banned from Malazan is worth a few. (i.e. "I recommend telling Malaclypse he's a douchebag.")

    When the new order rises, lazy posters will be among the first to be purged.

    Good call with the spoilers tags. I didn't want to add them because it makes it extra work to read posts :D

    Not having read about the dragon-cow, I didn't pay much mind to your write-up, but now that I've read their write-up and the comments, I appreciate the statement you made. Also, good job. ;)
