    It also made me think quite a bit about Fukushima (although more limited in scope). More than a few similarities makes one wonder how far we’ve come (when things go really, unexpectedly bad). Also... https://www.instagram.com/explore/locations/507277779/chernobyl-exclusion-zone/

    Fleabag

    I think she worked on the second season of Fleabag and the first of Killing Eve at the same time. I thought I was busy. Like many shows, Fleabag is getting a cultural translation. Kind of. A French faithful adaptation. I know I'm being naive, and this is likely just about native positioning and cash, but have you heard of stranger, lighter, justification for adapting? It's even the same song!

    Fleabag

    Okay, the same weekend GoT finishes, the second and last season of Fleabag hits Amazon Prime (it’s already aired in Britain). Can we now call it the best thing on TV? Know there are other fans here, including Stretch, and suspect there would be many more given the chance.

    Mattresses

    Mad dash at the end. Here's my unuseful take (as an inner spring preference side sleeper)... Best: Hästens Most Loved: McRoskey Most Confusing: Duxiana Great, But Always Too Close to a Hästens: Vispring And of course the above have almost nothing in common with each other. In the end we went bang-for-buck and joined the Aireloom club. Ronald Reagan and I finally have something in common. Aireloom Midnight Preferred Ingraham

    A Game of Thrones Pilot Greenlit

    Good read and thanks for posting, but there's one kinda significant misconception (inside this Twitter thread and out) - the show runners were always in control. They were responsible for plot & adaptations choices and pacing structure in seasons 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. They made arc constructions around renew cycles with HBO, supposedly they played a big part in deciding to end things on season 8. This is all, of course, simplifying things more than a bit (and the successes of this show were so many), but give them the benefit of the doubt on season one where they didn't even get a wrap party (and had a natural seasonal arc), what were their pacing and landing plans from the first renewal on? Also Argentina.

    What are you Grilling now?

    Nice score and especially congrats on the Aireloom.

    I agree, though you have to spin it around and embrace the same criticism and disconnect also the "It's good because I like it" position, which, to be honest, probably accounts for many of our posts in the Entertainment forums, no? The pacing of the early seasons were glacial, like Mad Men or LotR glacial, though obviously lots of people liked that here. I suspect that's part of the reason all the rushed missed landings of the current season, feels especially abnormal. I will say no matter how you view it, the couple female spurned lover storylines recently, or maybe more accurately story order (reject, then boom!), were big mistakes in comparison all the careful and successful positioning of female characters in what would likely naturally have been an overwhelming male epic. Again switch order slightly and give it a bit more time.
