  1. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    I think that's true about Chuck in regards to Jimmy. Though I don't view Chuck in a positive light. He treats people he believes are beneath him like crap and I think his rigidness prevented him from truly trying to appeal to Jimmy's better side. I also won't condone him not mentioning to Jimmy what his mother's last words were though I am sympathetic that he was hurt that his mother didn't seem to know he was in the room.

    Yes, Jimmy's behavior in getting fired was SO professional and really showed why he deserves to work with a major law firm...
  3. The Awards Thread: The Golden Throne

    Yeah, I struggled to remember what Tyrion's storyline actually was this season. He pretty much is exclusively Dany's advisor at this point.
  4. I want to see an Invaders series with Cap, Namor and the original Human Torch fighting actual Nazis and not Hydra.

    I think you're right. They do exchange a lot of significant looks, I thought. She was hell bent on getting him gone.
  6. S04.E01: USS Callister

    Very well-deserved. My favorite episode of the show.
  7. The Awards Thread: The Golden Throne

    Very happy Game of Thrones won Best Drama, which is richly deserved. As for PD's victory, it feels like another case of the Emmy winner honoring someone simply on the basis of being a previous winner. When PD won in Season 5, that was another example. I remember all the critics saying that Season that he was the deserving no-brainer to win but I didn't understand it. PD always does great work but was given no Emmy material in Season 5 and as far as I was concerned, he received the Emmy that Jonathan Banks should have gotten that season for Better Call Saul. He was good in Season 7 but I really can't remember much about his performance or storyline in Season 7. PD's best seasons were for Season 1 (which he rightly got the Emmy for) and Season 4 (which he didn't win).
  8. Murder On The Orient Express (2017)

    I watched the first episode of that and I admit I just couldn't get into it. And Then There Were None was a GREAT adaptation though.

    It was okay. Had some nice music montages, more Saul development, more Huell but I didn't find it all that interesting. It's easy to see why Mark Margolis got an Guest Emmy nomination for playing Hector on Breaking Bad. The man conveys a lot without saying a single word and barely moving.
  10. I hated the Brenda retcon too. As I've said many times, the only reason that Kelly was Dylan's "true love" is because Brenda was never going to return to this show. I would laugh though if Brenda and Dylan got back together just to find a way to screw over Brandon and Kelly during their honeymoon.
  11. The Star Wars Saga

    I don't consider Patton Oswalt to be a bastion of what is right with Star Wars fandom. When someone does a routine about wanting to kill George Lucas because they didn't like the prequels, you lose all credibility with me. Guys like him and the vile Simon Pegg are one of the reasons we have toxic fandom nowadays.
  12. The Miniaturist

    This episode suffered because it focused more on the boring sugar storyline instead of the more interesting main storyline.

    That's probably true about a mail clerk rambling to the CEO. But given the way that Chuck has treated people he believes he's superior to (that includes Howard) I'm not going to give him the benefit of the doubt. Even Howard's father, whom Chuck noted to Howard was working in a two-room office before he came along.

    I don't think Kim was being a suck-up. Definitely too starry-eyed when it came to Chuck (Chuck seemed to be enjoying having his ass kissed after his big win). But typical Chuck is visibly annoyed by her (because that's who Chuck is especially when dealing with people who he thinks are beneath him) until she starts showing her knowledge of the law, where he starts paying attention to her.

    Good point about a guy like Jimmy not having any friends. That is odd although it might reveal more about him. The circles he likes to travel in doesn't lend itself to many friends. But I agree at the very least he'd have a lot of acquaintances that he could go to looking for business. I was re-watching the scene recently when Jimmy tells Chuck that he passes the bar. He does say to Chuck specifically that "I figured if Kim could do it, why not give it a try." So they actually did establish that he became a lawyer because of Kim all the way back in the first season.
