I just wanted to chime back in about the Anthony Ryan books. I just finished Blood Song and started Tower Lord. Very entertaining, though I would place them slightly below the Gentleman Bastard Sequence so far.
Also, the Kingkiller Chronicles are another one I would highly suggest you listen to i...

We're having a garage sale in the morning, and I am dreading it. I can't stand haggling and don't like the idea of all these people knowing who lives in my house. That being said, we've got a lot of stuff from my wife's parents, grandmother, and uncle so we should rake in a nice little payday.

[quote]Its worth a question to this Maria Hooke about the origination of the e-mail. If she replies saying that Lerner told her she was going to get the e-mail in order to get a certain reply it becomes "suspicious", even though that isn't really uncommon since Lerner comes off like an idiot who nee...

As the show goes on it gets more and more out of whack with the books. They're still very close, but there are also some major differences.
Also, there are tons of characters and history you would miss out on if you try to skip ahead.
Finally, the storylines in the show have been left off at d...

Of course he'll leave. It's a silly notion that an American president would be allowed to exceed his/her term limit. It was silly when liberals made the same kind of statements about Bush, and it's silly now.

| Movie/TV Board|| re: Let's talk about GLEE (spoilers only halfway through S1) - TigerNutwhack on 6/25/14 at 10:06 am|
I'll just reiterate what others have said. The first season was extremely solid with funny, quirky characters. Second season wasn't bad, but not all that good either. We quit about 2-3 episodes into season 3. The music was lame, the characters stupid, and the themes preachy and overdone.

[quote]There is a space between campy and "violent and gritty," that Superman can occupy. It took itself too seriously, which is part of the reason why the criticisms are quite valid. It THINKS it's a serious film with a great narrative arc and character development. But it doesn't end up that way.[...
