Sorry, but more GOT gripes.

Last time it was non-existent motivations that make no sense to the plot. This time they are just flat out stating the motivations in exposition that completely give away the plot.

One of the twists at the end of the book is that it was Littlefinger's scheme to

Well, that spoiler is not really one if you watched the episode because they simply state that is what he is going to do, a whole season away from when it happens.

I had no problem with that, they've been a bit more obvious about motivations because its tv and today's audience can't handle figuring things out or slow burns. Once you accept that things like that make sense and no longer bother you as much.

I've been watching Defiance on SyFy. I like it so far. It has enjoyable characters, an interesting setting, and descent special effects.

I love the second season of Being Human except one thing. I wish they'd give Sally a better story. Her problems can be solved in 3 episodes (or less) while Aidan and Josh have arcs that last for the entire season or more. I know she's a ghost, but can't they just try a little?

Also, started Adventure Time.

My fave television series would be a toss up between the multitude of paranormal investigation series and Animal Planet's main\spin-off "Whale Wars" series.

Anyone watching that Hannibal Lecter series? I've only seen one episode so it may be a bit too early to call it a favourite - and admittedly my judgement may be skewed by an avid enjoyment of the films - but I thought it was quite good. What's everyone else's opinion on it?

I'm 7 episodes in and I'm digging it. It sucks that another network owns the right's to Silence of the Lambs so when it comes to that people are going to have to deal with them skipping it.

Really? I didn't know that; that's a shame. It would have been interesting to see how they would have dealt with Silence. Still, on the bright side, it gives me an excuse to watch the film again.

I've been watching that a bit and it's great!

I've also tried the comics, which Ryan North (of Dinosaur Comics fame, www.qwantz.com), and that's quite good.

At Ottawa Comic-Con, there were a lot of Adventure Time cosplayers. A lot of Finns, some Jakes, a handful of Princess Bubblegums and Lumpy Space Princesses, and a really good Ice-King and Marceline.

I love Marceline! Coolest character.

I enjoy the show but I'm the first to say I wouldn't let my kids watch it if I had any. I wouldn't want to have to explain a few things...

I haven't watched Hannibal, but from what I've heard, I'm confused by the timeline. I thought it was an alternate universe, because Will Graham and Hannibal didn't work on like dozens of cases together. I thought each episode was a different case, like Law and Order or CSI. Is that right?

Not sure yet. As I've said, I've only seen one episode; once I've seen more, and have a better handle on the show, I'll let you know. Caedus, is it an alternate universe?

Its not related to the films, its a thing all unto itself. There have been a few different cases but for the most part the first half of the season all built out of the first case and its resolution. Not very CSI at all other than its a cop drama (to a degree) but I guess if that helps identify it sure.

Most of the focus is on Hannibal and Graham's interactions, and that's phenomenal. And his cooking of people's parts, that's kind of interesting to watch in a weird way.
