Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Chuck, The Shephers's Tale is excellent, a true must buy for anyone who loved Firefly. The artwork, honestly, did not do it for me, but the story and the dialogue absolutely rang true Fox just never got the show, and I do wonder why they greenlit it at all. If this woudl have gotten started on F/X o...

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Davids (Silver and Loftus), Even though I am a die-hard Whedon fan, for some reason I did not watch Firefly when it was on TV. I started watching it on Netflix Instant Watch last year and fell in love with both the characters and the incredibly detailed universe in which they exist. Since then I hav...

Re: Voice From The Edge, Volumes 4 & 5

I am probably going to be purchasing both volumes from Audible tonight and, assuming my kids are not running rampant, I am hoping to share some comments and observations on both collections by next week It did seem odd that nothing was announced that this was being released, but I am glad both Doug ...

Re: Webderland Wine Seminar

Tony, I have never been part of a wine club, so take this with a large grain of salt, but my recommendation would be to have about 5 or 6 wines to try that would be appropriate for that season. You could also use this as an opportunity to have people try some more unusual wines. For example, in whit...

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Sean Bean has always been a favorite of mine, so I may check out the show once it is available through Netflix

The one book in the series had some adult oriented scenes, so I am glad that HBO did not try to make the show more Lord of the Rings - like

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

A good friend of mine gave me a copy of Game of Thrones to read, as he loved it. Gotta say, it did nothing for me. I just found myself not caring at all about any of the characters within the story, possibly because there were so damn many.

Does the mini-series do a better job on characterization?

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Diane, glad to hear you are feeling better As someone who is friends with Jes outside the boards, I did find his comments offensive. Have had 2 emails from Jes since his Dad passed, both very short, but he seems to be doing OK. I did ask him if there was any charity to which he would prefer a donati...

Re: Whatcha reading?

Just finished an excellent non-fiction book called Dracula Was a Woman (great title, I know). The book was an examination of Elizabeth Bathory, her influence on the Bram Stoker novel, and an analysis of some of the truth around the crimes she committed. fascinating work, and the author traveled to e...
