possibly a fourth to end the series on

That seems like a pretty appropriate length for this kind of show, and it's always nice to know that they have a clear end-game in mind. I just hope Netflix execs don't try to squeeze more out of them, because it's probably one of Netflix's top shows

Netflix has dragged Orange Is The New Black and House of Cards on for way too long. Both shows should have had a definitive planned ending.

I'm just hoping for a spin off: Why's of Cards

Yeah, how's of cards feels like it should have ended this season. I liked the ending but the show peaked around season 2-3.

"May the shadow of the moon fall on a World at peace."

Sounds like something Optimus Prime would say right before the Linkin' Park music kicks on.

I remember watching this when I was seven and realizing I'd be 46 for the next one. That seemed so old then... It's the only time in my life that I calculated a date into the future and thought about my age and where I'd be in life and that point. I can look back on seven-year-old me doing that, but it's trippy that seven-year-old me can't look ahead to me now.

Aegon's conquest or the Dance of Dragons would be awesome to see. I feel like Robert's Rebellion serves better as spoken backstory for the main show than a full fledged prequel.

The point of Roberts Rebellion to the story is having this massive heroic tale deconstructed throughout the story. It's there to show us that the romanticised characters of this tale (Robert for example) and the demonised characters (Jamie) aren't fair representations of their character. It's a story we're supposed to see through several different viewpoints and how it effected certain people. Seeing it happen across a mini series or a movie defeats the purpose of it.

I'd like to see Robert's Rebellion as a movie rather than a whole new series.

But GRRM already confirmed it's not an option.

Whatever they do, hopefully none of the existing actors appear as younger version of themselves. That would just look weird.

Anyone remember 'Dead Like Me'

Anyone remember 'Dead Like Me'

I'm a little bit drunk, and I'm rewatching it. I realized that a really big portion of my personality, philosophy, and outlook on life have their basis in obsessive rewatchings of this show when I was young (like 12).

The lead actress was such a strange old young person. She had a smokers voice.

Smart people don't join MENSA

That didn't sound dumb really, it makes sense.

Wish they didn't cancel it.

This might not mean much to anyone outside the UK. But he was a huge huge star here.

Bruce Forsyth walks into a sweet shop.

"Can I help you?" asks the assistant.

"Yes" Brucie replies, "Give us a twirl."

He was on British TV before WWII.

all i can say is it was nice to meet him, to meet him nice

Trump Bonwitt Teller is what she references there towards the end. Trump had no qualms destroying those sculptures even after the Met offered to preserve it in their museum.

"Who drove the car into the crowd - Hillary's emails??"

"Yard sale Barbie"

Savage. So good.

"Next time when you see a bunch of white boys, boys in polo shirts, screaming about taking our country back, and you want to scream, it's not our country. We stole it. From the native Americans."

Already laugh-crying. Then she added:

"And when the Native Americans, when they have a peaceful protest, at Standing Rock, we shoot at them with rubber bullets. But we let you chinless turds march through the streets with semiautomatic weapons."

Straight to the heart. Yeah, I'd like some of that cake too.

John Baron, a Trump Organization executive who later turned out to be Trump in disguise, told the newspaper the preservation was scrapped because “the merit of these stones was not great enough to justify the effort to save them.”

Holy shit!

Netflix Plans to Spend $7 Billion on Original Content in 2018

Netflix Plans to Spend $7 Billion on Original Content in 2018

I really hope this means The Witcher will be good.

EDIT: Seems like some people aren't aware that we're getting a Witcher TV series, so here's an article from when it was announced. Should answer a lot of questions.

If they keep increasing their content budget, at what point will they have to increase the cost of the subscription?

article

They just did for us Canadians.

Edit: enough people have asked, so here is the breakdown of the price increases:

'Netflix's standard plan will now cost a dollar more — or $10.99 a month — to watch content on two screens at a time.

The basic plan, which does not offer high definition video and only permits one streaming screen at a time, also goes up a dollar to $8.99 a month.

Premium plan subscribers will pay $2 more for up to four simultaneous streams and ultra high-definition 4K content. It will now cost $13.99 monthly.'

Article here

Edit 2: Since apparently no one will read the and people keep asking me, this is for Canadian customers only and therefore these prices are in Canadian dollars.

That's 35 Neymars!

Can't say it's a surprise, but I'm really looking forward to what they do next season.

Jason Bateman was really impressive.

I'm actually looking forward to Ruth's season 2 storyline more than the Byrde's...

edit: grammar

Hope to see some more episodes directed by Bateman as well, the ones he covered were very tense.

Ruth

She's probably the best character in the show. Like Russ I'm glad she became more than just a redneck (not hillbilly) stereotype.
