  1. S05.E07: Acceptable Losses 2018.06.19

    Octavia could not have been more obvious of her intentions because she couldn't take her eyes off of Clarke, especially when she greeted Madi as Madi Kom Wonkru, she looked directly at Clark indicating that she was usurping Clarke's role as Madi's Guardian. Clarke accepted that challenge and may the Gods spare Octavia form her long-overdue fall. Or Not.
  2. S05.E07: Acceptable Losses 2018.06.19

    I'm not a Clarke hater, I've liked her since season 1. She's beginning to assume command again, albeit behind the scenes. Her "diplomatic" approach to Indra and ordering the others to leave, was classic Wanheda. Octavia senses Clarke circling and made her power move by bringing Madi into Wonkru. Now, it's on. Clarke has now vowed to take Bloodreina down. Should be fun. Octavia is the better fighter, but Clarke was trained as a leader by her beloved Lexa, she's more than capable of taking her down. Don't forget Clarke, snowflake or not, has brought them all down. She single-handedly brought down A.L.I.E, and Roan, Lexa, and maybe even Anya, all deferred to her. Let the machinations begin. I just hope Clarke doesn't try to replace Octavia with Madi through petition of Nightblood protocols Madi is no match for Octavia, in fact, the only person who is, is Indra. Now THAT would be a fight to behold. Octavia needs to be taken down a peg.
  3. Season 3 Discussion

    According to Nadine's wonderful news "to New Zealand humans - the last 8 episodes of 800 Words season 3 go to air July 18 @ 8.30pm on TVNZ1. Yay!" - Nadine We're ALL glad Ollie got his. It would have been nice if Ike did more than just drive the Port-A-Potty away, like maybe into that great, big, volcano Arlo spoke about in S1, E1. Now the question needs to be answered as to who was George talking to at the end?

    Thanks, that helps, although Tyrone didn't get to look into Tandy's trauma.
  5. S01.E03: Stained Glass 2018.06.14

    This one was hard to follow. I don't even know if a rewatch will make things clearer.
  6. It's called just chatting. Nuke away, the thoughts and sentiments will not vaporize, just the typed words.
  7. I don't know any of the dads. Tatiana's brother, though good, has a long way to go to catch up with his sister, who I think deserves an Oscar for her performances in "Orphan Black". Is Townes even Autistic? I would place him in the Apergerger's spectrum. He's extremely high functioning. Maybe even OCD, but more like Apergerger's since he has video game obsessions and TV references as guidelines. Probably just TV psycho babbling. I worked with Autistic children and they manifested the same symptoms. What does the acronym "H!ITG!" stand for?
  8. Impulsive media? Witty! As far as actors in other roles, I didnt even think of that topic primarily because other than Missi Pyle, I don't know any of the other actors. (Also Callum Keith Rennie - makes me want to rewatch BSG) The lead is very good. She has extremely expressive eyes. I like the characters and the actors who play them. I also like the relationships; especially between Henry and her sister Jenna and Henry and Townes. As far as separate threads, I would vote for that as it would alleviate the spoiler problem inherent in one big season thread, But don't know if there are enough posters to warrant separate threads. Paulvdb is an expert at solving that problem, as I've had to deal with him on the "800 Words" forum. Thank you shapeshifter for your help. This is an interesting show and I signed up for YouTube TV just for this show even though I could have signed up for YouTube Red.
  9. Yes, I'm sorry I forgot that easy one.
  10. Sorry, I've done this before, a long time ago. There may even be a problem watching this new series as it's on YouTube TV. Forum topics are: Small Talk: Is "Meet Me At My Safe Place" Truly Safe? Books vs Movie vs TV Series. Impulse in the media This show is airing now on YouTube TV. (Season 1 is 10 episodes)
  11. Based on the third novel in the Jumper series by Steven Gould, Impulse features a rebellious 16-year-old girl who has always felt different from her peers and has longed to escape from her seemingly quaint small town. When a local drug dealer attempts to assault her, she discovers she has the extraordinary ability to teleport. This newfound power confirms her conviction that she really was different from everybody else, but it now makes her the focus of those who want to control her.
  12. Shadowhunters In The Media

    Shadowhunters Won't return for a fourth season Freeform is closing the doors of the New York Institute earlier than expected: Shadowhunters won’t return for a fourth season, and will end after the upcoming second half of Season 3, TVLine has learned. RELATEDCable/Streaming Scorecard: What’s Renewed? What’s Cancelled? The supernatural drama will wrap things up in the spring of 2019 with a 12-episode run — titled Shadowhunters: The Final Hunt — that will be capped off by a two-hour series finale event. “We are very proud of Shadowhunters, a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favorite,” the network said in a statement. “However, along with our partners at Constantin, we reached the very difficult decision not to renew the show for a fourth season. But as big supporters and fans ourselves, Freeform insisted on and championed the filming of a special two-part finale that would give devoted fans a proper ending.”

    AcornTV has started airing Season 3 Part 1 episodes on June 1, 2018.
  14. Media: Crikey, What's the News?

    Excellent news, I'm looking forward to it. Thanks, Nadine!!! Laura's Ghost? that would be anticlimactic, not to mention, a waste of my time wondering who it could be. Waah, waah, I don't want Laura, I want Katie!!! After she went all the way to Stafford to buy that delicious dress she claimed was an old hand-me-down!! C'mon, she's slyly chasing George and he's a fool if he doesn't realize how easy going their relationship is, not like Ms. "No Drama" Fiona. Just don't let it be Ngahuia, she moves like a shark searching for prey, plus she's Hannah's and Ike's mom and that's too much Zac baggage. Oh, and definitely NOT Jan. That's done! Zero chemistry. I'll set my TV to record. Now, all I need is for Poldark and Doc Martin to return. Thanks, Nadine. You piqued my 800 Words interest and I checked out the last two episodes before the break. Groomspiel and the wedding. I picked up on some things said and done that I either didn't notice or had forgotten. I'm now more than convinced that Katie deliberately bought that frothy drink to have Ngahuia throw it on her so that she could make a move on George. The wistful shrug of the shoulders when she admitted to George that she was a bit chilly, in order to accentuate her "features", (Which she never fails to emphasize and it always seems to work with me) also her smug smile of contentment when she was hanging up the freshly washed blouse. Admitting to George that Fiona speculated that perhaps something was up with George and Katie when they caught Fiona and Zac preparing for another Zac "special" and assuring her that there was nothing there, questioningly. I also noticed Ngahuia's eagerness to work with George on the new Weld Digital press issue. Finally, after the power pole got knocked down and the town lost power and George visited Katie and her bright smile when she answered the door. Hmm, perhaps it's not just George who is fascinated by her.
  15. Why Do You Watch S.H.E.I.L.D.

    Great question. I'll have to some hard thinking and write everything down on paper before I commit my comments to the ether. AOS is one of those shows that is an acquired taste. Its no secret that a lot of us here were not initially enamored with the show. Some of us here thought that ABC should have spent more money advertising another Marvel series, "Agent Carter" and less on the over-hyped AoS. It didn't help that it had such box-office stars from the MCU like Clark Gregg and Cobie Smulders and even Ming-Na Wen and had writers like the Whedon brothers involved. It wasn't until the series left the episodic format and became more serialized did the series take off for me, then of course the writers finally figured out what to do with Chloe Bennet and changed her from a beautiful nerd with LOL quips to a badass AoS. I was a Marvel fan ever since I was a kid and even collected "Nick Fury, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." comic books (which when I read them started out as ("Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos") however I wasn't familiar with the Daisy Johnson character, so when her arc started out, I was fascinated. Of course I hated her devotion to Ward and was pissed THAT ABC decided to keep Brett Dalton around (even though he's a good actor) through his evolution to Hydra and then Hive. Look at that, stream of consciousness has allowed me to write more than I had originally planned. Suffice it to say, the series has had some up and down arcs that kind of sucked <framework, cough, cough>, but S5 was fun and different. S2&3 were my favs, and u can't go wrong with Ghost Rider and Mockingbird. I'll admit, I still try to watch Chloe Bennet's music video every once and a while ;-p
