Yeah, somewhere I seem to have missed when and where Nick decided to confide more in his wife than most commanders do. She seems legit, though, so what's up with that?

Re: The Handmaid's Tale

Saint or idiot. You decide. :)

And yes, I prefer Nick too. And of course, we're gonna see June go back inside ONE MORE TIME because clearly she can't get enough of that place. :D I envision her,...

After some of the crap June has pulled recently, I'm surprised he's still around at all. :D And that's not even his baby!

Re: The Handmaid's Tale

Ugh, agreed! I'm enjoying it too, but honestly, I am so sick of June's frowny face in every other scene. I don't think the writers know whether they want her to seem like a psycho or just a mother...

Re: The Rings of Power (Amazon Series)

I'm enjoying it so far, cultural additions or changes notwithstanding.

If I hadn't been exposed to those same "Woke! Oh no!" headlines before watching--if I could have actually gone in without...

What made reading this even more fun (besides the perfect snarky humor) was that I was in some of the places mentioned: on Bayshore Blvd., in and around Tampa, on Dale Mabry Highway... Hubby couldn't...

Re: MoFo Book Club: August 2022

Okay, I finished it. Loved it. I'm going to have to read more of these because I kept wishing I could write this funny. :) Thanks, Sedai, for the initial suggestion. :)

Is Lost in Space Series worth the watch?

Re: Is Lost in Space Series worth the watch?

Yes, I loved this series. The dialogue among the kids was so realistic and believable. The family dynamics hold up and seem plausible and realistic too. And great effects for a "TV show"!

And I...

I'm finally reading this..In actual Tampa, which makes it even funnier. About halfway through and really enjoying the humor. I've had laugh-out-loud moments in every chapter.

Somebody's holding a teeny tiny grudge, isn't he?

I am still willing to be convinced about Raised by Wolves. But nobody's convinced me. I gave it a shot. I watched new episodes faithfully as they...

Clearly we're just going to have to disagree on the subtleties here. As a writer myself, I hesitate to ever make such sweeping, all-encompassing statements as "a bad writer." Heck, I should be so bad...

Still seeing a lot of subjective stuff here, though. I don't mind some exposition if it's setting up stuff for the future. And I am not saying this show is perfect... just that I'm enjoying it. :)

Wow, so we're really not on the same page then. I'm not a typical fantasy reader, but I flew through all five books. :D

Well, to each his own. I think it helps to just say you don't care for the...

You reeeeeeally don't like this show/series/franchise/world. Have you read the books, by any chance?

Also, you'll be thrilled to hear they have already sanctioned season 2 of House of Dragons. :)

And that article link posted above mentions the new series... and that Martin has a heavy hand in it. I do think it's starting very strong (we're two episodes in), and I'm enjoying it so far.

An actual Kindle has never felt like a "screen" in that way. At least, not to me. (I've owned Kindles since the first ones in 2007.) I do like the font choices, the font SIZE choices, and the...

You can use the Kindle app on just about any type of device, even a desktop computer. Just sayin'! :) In a pinch, that might be helpful information elsewhere.

I BINGED IT! Took about 2-3 days to get through all the episodes, and I am not necessarily a huge fan of Gaiman or even graphic novels. :)

Oh, and I bought the first book (issues 1-20) of the...

This looks like the second book in a series, yes? Can I assume one needn't start with the first book, A Fire Upon the Deep?
