I'm a sucker for these global conspiracy stories, so I'm in. But if it's as bad as 'The DaVinci Code', I'll quickly be out. Not to be confused with Starz's most excellent 'DaVinci's Demons', which I...

She'd probably just kick their tails too. Just like Lagertha. Those two gals -- separated by birth and a mere thousand or so years.

They often change details, but don't usually change the entire thematic thrust of the book.

Hey, it worked for Adam & Eve. And then again for Noah's kids. So from a religious standpoint, there's plenty of precedent. ;)

You know what they say: Vice is nice but incest is best! :p

The implication is that the decomposed body was the original source of the virus. That makes sense thematically. The virus needed to have its genesis somewhere, and then after it was discovered it...

Sure it does. They based the movie on the book "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" by Phillip K. Dick. They didn't fly off in an entirely new direction.

That begs the question: Wonder how long a virus can stay dormant and still be viable when warmed back up? They say DNA eventually deteriorates to the point where it can't be reconstituted. (Thus, no...

Indeed he did. Many years ago, back when HDNet was one of the first and only HD networks around. He probably did it just to drum up a little pub from one of the few HD advocacy groups there were. I...

They could still do a series of flashbacks to show how Flint actually became a pirate, got command of his first ship, etc. That may happen this season, or they may be saving those reveals for later...

Did anyone else think this last episode was a complete mess? Or was it just me?

Absolutely nothing made sense. It's like they just stopped trying. A couple more like this one and I'm probably out.

Yep, that's another way to be considerate and not clutter the thread. Easy as pie. And it only took 3 more posts after my plea above for someone to do it again. Jeebus. :rolleyes:

I agree that this show is very good, and has largely flown under the radar. And Eva Green has been spectacular, though not for her typical reasons. ;)

If there were any justice in the world, she...

As long as she gets eaten by flying sharks, preferably in the most gruesome manner possible, I'm totally down with it. :p

Nah. It was PPV; I don't do PPV. And if you blinked you would have missed it: 14 seconds. :eek: About the time it took Lagertha to become Earl.
