Re: Games, Riddles, Puzzles, and other Distractions

Thanks, Rose! I figured it was time for another of my intermittent appearances. :) I took a crack at Hurdle today, but I was trying to play on the "you must take into account every clue so far" mode, and I ran out of guesses trying to variants of words ending in... –ILLY ...and it made me ...

Re: Middle-earth [formerly LotR] in New Media

I quite like it, though the hobbits are perhaps a bit Hildebrant-y. One of the few takes I've seen that actually depicts a balrog as wrapped in shadow and "of man-shape, maybe" rather than as some sort of clearly-visible horned demon. Same; it's very rare that I see a depiction of Balrogs...

Re: The all too early Season Two thread (possible spoilers)

Part of me feels foolish for discounting any ROP rumors for seeming too stupid and/or out there, but a bigger part of me doesn't understand why people on TORn('s Discord) consider it a serious possibility that Amazon will devote one-eighth of the season (one of only forty precious episodes to cover ...

Did they ever release it on DVD? Not yet, and they might not ever since Amazon's business objective for ROP is reportedly to build their credibility as a streaming service, but it's possible there will be a DVD release in the future. If it follows the model of Amazon's The Boys , the DVD/Blu-ray re...

Heh, I started playing Hurdle 'cause of you and Frelga, and it's one of my favorites, so I was wondering if anyone else still plays. :) That's weird about the adblock thing.

Re: The all too early Season Two thread (possible spoilers)

I'd say there are better uses for your money if you don't already have Prime, but for what it's worth I was one of the more ROP-critical people here as it was airing, so you might well feel differently. :)

And just like that we are back to discussion of hair lengths. Whether this is good casting or not remains to be seen. I'm not terribly familiar with the work of Gavi Singh Chera.
