The rings of power isn’t getting the friendliest coverage among critics but it’s still infinitely better than the turd that was wheels of time season 1. I wouldn’t have even finished season 1 if it wasn’t for my wife saying we were too invested only to regret the decision with whatever that was as a season finale. I won’t be touching season 2.

So Cyberpunk: Edgerunners just came out on Netflix, it's an anime adaptation tied in to the game by CDPR. I'd give it at least a 9.5/10, I was totally blown away and I wish it was longer. Once the second episode kicks in and you get immersed into the world, it's a surprisingly emotional thrill ride. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer.

I watched the first two episodes of American Gigolo. It's alot more interesting than I thought it would be. It really not been about him being a gigolo but more about his life after prison and the circumstances that got him into prison.

Are those zombies?

Basically.

It's a fungal infection that takes control of people and slowly wastes them away, and also turns them violent. People in the early stages of infection will look more or less like people, but as you see at the end of the trailer, later stages feature some pretty advanced fungal growth. I have no idea what they're going to put into the show, but there are some versions that are even more fucked up than the clicker you see in the trailer.

Shows looks good. Bella Ramsey as Ellie still continues to baffle me but hard to judge anything at this point.

HBO likes to keep things in house. She was on Thrones and everyone loved her, so why not cast her here too?

At this point, I pretty much just give HBO the benefit of the doubt when it comes to casting. They rarely miss.

That being their reasoning is exactly why I’m skeptical. :chuckle: A small bit part on Thrones, to potentially carrying a flagship show by herself in the future. I’d hope there was a bit more to the choice than that.

Still really looking forward to it though.

Well, it was a bit part on Thrones that I think became more significant because she did a great job and the fans loved her.
