  1. How will you treat shows that can fit multiple categories? For example, super hero shows would be considered drama in the formal entertainment business (Golden Globes and Emmys just have two categories -drama and comedy); but the public could classify these shows as sci-fi, action, drama, and even comedy (e.g The Middle Man). Will there be a category for police procedurals and Medical shows beyond drama (SVU, Criminal Minds, The Good Doctor, The Resident, Grey's Anatomy, Chicago Med)? I can see how finding a favourite show under the new genre classification could be difficult, if you do away with the Alphabetical scheme.

    When Harry first moved into the house, they explained he had moved in because the Charmed Ones needed extra security, as they could not consult TBOS on demand because the Elders had it. Twice in this episode they had Harry discuss his moving out of the house because the book was back (once with Mel and once with Macy) and both times they mentioned that the extra security was not needed anymore. Even when he was leaving and Maggie asked why, he said the same thing: the Elders agreed there is no need for extra security anymore, so, I'm going back to my condo. The idea that Harry would stop being their White Lighter has never been mentioned. I'm still undecided about this show, and it does have some major problems, but this wasn't one of them.

    Man, that would cause a fandom explosion of epic proportions!!
  4. Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Now that comment is a lot more specific and may I say: Thank you, Jesus!!!!! Lately, it seems to me, too many shows go to that well. I am tired of it.
  5. Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    "...what the fans want" Which fans? Fandom is very diverse. You have people that want the WW to win and people who want Jon and Dany +Baby Targ ruling with happily ever afters for everyone else, and you have everything in between those two extremes. It would not be productive to speculate on how the season will unfold using comments like that. LOL!

    That's a good guess. It would explain why her mother gave her up. Another possibility I've thought off is that Harry is Macy's father, which would also explain why their mother gave her up (although that might end up being too similar to how Paige entered the stage in the original show).
  7. S27.E10: Week 8: Semi-Finals

    I started watching this show during the Alfonso Ribeiro season, so, I don't know if the elimination rules have changed since the first season. Did they ever try to do what they do on the British show (Strictly Come Dancing) where the scores and audience votes determine the bottom couples and then the judges decide which couple goes after a dance off? It seems to me that would ensure good dancers like Juan Pablo don't go home too soon. They can always leave the final decision up to the voters, but we would at least get good dancers in the final. Bobby seems to be genuinely enjoying being on the show and his enthusiasm can be contagious, but it seems incredibly unfair that he stays and JP goes, given how much of a better dancer JP is. I don't particularly like Alexis, on a personal level (everything with her seems manufactured, not real, except when she talks about her mom), but she is a better dancer than Bobby. Of the 4 contenders remaining, Evanna and Milo are the best dancers, so I hope they duke it out in the finals. And may the best dancer win (based on their final performances).

    One possible scenario could be that Jon, Dany and their followers flee to KL and Cersei orders the gates locked. Someone will suggest a siege, Tyrion will offer to parley with Cersei. Jon and Dany will approve. Once Tyrion is granted entrance into KL, he will negotiate with Cersei and this when the betrayal occurs. Instead of convincing Cersei to open the gates for Jon, Dany and their remaining armies and followers, Tyrion will convince Cersei (or agree with her) to keep the gates locked. This would be an almost certain death sentence for anyone outside KL. And Tyrion would be siding with his family, thinking that he could raise Cersei's baby right this time around. In order to prevent the citizens of KL from becoming wights, Tyrion could order that they use wildfire on them, which doesn't necessarily mean the city will burn (show didn't follow all the rules about book wildfire behavior before, so...). Meanwhile, when team Jon/Dany realise Tyrion has betrayed them, Arya can offer to show them another way into the city (the way she and Sansa got out). She could suggest a small party to sneak in and assault one gate from the inside, so that they could open it for Jon/Dany. The NK's attack of King's Landing can happen in parallel with these events or right after Arya walks the streets littered with corpses.

    It was made clear in the show. I didn't read the book or any articles and I knew that. The characters mentioned it a couple of times. I think the problem might have been that Adora looked like such a good suspect that people never paid attention to anyone else. To me, the bicycle ended up in the pond because Adora ordered her employee to put it there and "find it" so that the police would have more evidence against John. She knew all the particulars of the case because the sheriff kept her informed. The last conversation she had with the sheriff before the bike was found was about him telling her they were sure John did it but didn't have enough evidence to arrest him. Next thing you know Adora's employee finds the bike and says he saw John dumping it in the lake. It's obvious Adora was behind the whole thing. She either suspected Amma's involvement or she wanted the whole thing to stop so the town could get back to "normal" with her as the queen bee.

    He was even better as the Winchesters father in the early seasons of Supernatural.

  12. Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    But she couldn't know what would get reported by the media and what wouldn't. As I understand it, this is a Sansa fan who was at the event and was live tweeting (or almost live tweeting) everything as it was happening. She tweeted all the answers Sophie gave as she was giving them. She had no way of knowing what the press would report of this event. Later, when the press started publishing articles about this Q&A they reported all the same answers as the fan tweeted, but they never mentioned the statue. So, by reporting all the answers the fan tweeted, the press actually gave credibility to everything the fan had previously tweeted. As I see it there are three possibilities here: The answer about the statue is true, the press did not report it at the request of HBO. This is not as unlikely as people think it is, while it is true that HBO has no official power over the press, they do have the power to set the rules for press visits to filming locations and they do have the power to approve questions for a press event related to their show. They do this all the time. When reporters are given guest access to the sets, they have to sign NDAs and agree to keep secret as much info as the show who invited them want to keep secret. HBO could even require review approval for any article before it goes to press, specially if the event is exclusive, or invite only. If EW got this panel exclusively, then you bet these rules are in place, that is the price for exclusivity. And anyone else invited from the press would have to abide by the same rules The answer about the statue is a lie. This begs the question: why would the fan lie? From what I've read about this, this person has been a Sansa fan for a while and she was excitedly reporting the answers. Maybe she thought, as has been suggested, that a statue of Sansa would mean Sansa as end Queen and she wanted other people to believe this, but I fail to see why a dedicated fan of the show would think statue = queen, instead of statue = death. The other reason for a lie (that I can think of) is that the fan wanted to have a little fun with all the people that have been predicting Sansa's death for years now (some of whom are hardcore Sansa haters). I find the latter more likely than the former, but I still think it's less likely than the first possibility (the answer about the statue is true). The answer about the statue is true, the press did not report because the first source did not report it. I have not read all the articles about this event, so I don't know which media outlets were there, but, sometimes, one outlet quotes another in their reporting, if they couldn't be there themselves. The story would read something like: "EW reports that ST took home one of Sansa's corsets" or "During a press event held by EW, ST revealed....". If the outlet with the exclusivity did not report on something, other outlets won't report on it either (as they would base their reporting on the first one). So, if EW really thought that the comment was not important, and they were the only outlet there, all other media reports on the event would be missing the same piece of information. To me, the simpler explanation is that the fan was reporting the answers she heard as she heard them. The reason the statue answer was not reported by the media is up in the air. The significance of Sansa having a statue is also up in the air, although I tend to think the likeliest explanation is that she is dead. But if this statue is part of a time jump scene in the future, there could be statues for many other characters too. We just don't know for sure that there are.
  13. Really enjoyed these final episodes. I thought Sharn lost the game when she didn't know how to respond to the Matt issue (not telling him there was talk about voting him out). The one thing I didn't like about Sharn's game is that she allied herself with the big weasel (Benji) and thanks to that he stayed way longer than he should have. Who would have thought that the granny clumsily looking for an immunity idol in one of the earliest episodes would be the winner? Go Shane!

    Do zombies eat books? Is that why they can't go to a library and get books on how to build all the things they want to build?
  15. Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I am going to make a wild prediction: Tyrion betrays the Starks Jon dies as a result (something I would hate as he is my favorite) As Tyrion's trial unfolds in the dragon pit, Daenerys is watching from a high point. Ghost is beside her and Boatsex baby is on her lap petting the direwolf. The baby is around 1 year old When Tyrion is found guilty of treason, Daenerys looks up to Drogon flying overhead She makes some sort of signal to Boatsex baby who says "Draccarys" Boom! Tyrion is roasted Drogon comes to Boatsex baby who also pets him Dany, baby and Ghost climb on the dragon's back and fly away The end
