next season is gonna be weird...

Rumors are already circulating about some Flashpoint Paradox story arc. I don't know enough about the comics or animated movie/cartoon releases to add any input here. The season finale, I'll admit was a little underwhelming, but there were some good parts as well. I wonder what the Flash did that may have resulted in altering Arrow or Supergirl (I guess they're shared now in the multiverse?). Speaking of Supergirl, I watched the pilot episode and couldn't get beyond the cheesiness, so I may have to pass on that one.

So some random GoT thoughts after last weekend's episode spoiler-free:

HOLD THE DOOR! Sir Jorah needs to get himself to a CVS stat. Littlefinger needs a new line of business, like pronto. Not dropping names here, but the Starks are long overdue for replenishing the direwolf litter. Greyjoys gonna need a bigger boat. Spider needs to beware the Lord of Light. "A girl" needs to do S-O-M-E-T-H-I-N-G, yes, anything will do. Bran needs to get to da choppa and while he's at it get some more of those mystical magic hand grenades; they'll come in handy.

The haps for me involved moving to a new home over the weekend. Internet provider was supposed to be out to the property and flaked three days in a row. Grrr!!!!! Thankfully there is enough unpacking to keep my mind preoccupied for a while. Meanwhile, 1GB of data on the mobile phone may pull the wool over my eyes until I get wifi access again, lol.

*edit* First house guest was a camel spider or a wind scorpion. Not sure which one to be exact, yet there was a whole lot of nope happening there.

It's interesting to me how some animes don't age and to me are rendered timeless. Such was the case last night watching Ninja Scroll on Blu-Ray. It was one of the first animes I collected in the early 90s on VHS. I liked the dub and the soundtrack as well.

On of my favorite lines for some reason is when the old man, Dakuan, simply says "hmm... a strange technique" lol.



I'm outta the loop, but apparently there's a Ninja Scroll 2? I don't know if has been released/licensed in the west.

For the coffee aficionados:

World champ, Tøllefsen, in the story, uses Hario V60 over Aeropress. I lazily make coffee daily in the morning at work with the Keurig, so I know I'm missing out after reading your guys comments combined with the story above, lol.

Just found #SmoakLadies on Twitter where I can drown my sorrows for the lols of this season on Arrow. Other than Felicity and Donna Smoak drama taking up too much screen time, there were more arrows drawn in last night's episode of Arrow and Diggle on the run.

Arvis, I agree. I read an interesting article surprisingly on IGN with the creator of the show Jonathan Nolan on last night's theme that you would probably like.

I'm impressed with the writing this season. Last season I couldn't stand Iris, she was the equivalent of Felicity on Arrow in overly dramatic scenes.

Code:
This season, Iris has matured a lot with the time given to heal over losing Eddie and getting a nice dose of reality of Earth 2's doppelganger relationship of Barry and Iris coupled with the revelation that they're supposed to be married in the future on Earth 1. So it's nice to see her realizing more of what she wants. That level-headedness has changed my opinion of her big time. Hopefully, that can happen for Felicity (and her mom, Donna) in Arrow because I can't sit through another episode of her crying or act all b**** to Oliver.

Also, did you watch last night's episode of Person of Interest, "6,741"?? Holy crap, it was intense. I watch the show often with my mom. I'm happy to report that I did not watch it with her last night because it would have been suuuuuuper awkward. LOL!!! Damn did I miss Shaw, she's awesome [and hot, of course]!

Is anyone else caught up with Person of Interest?

Yep. I have to admit it was cool yet weird getting two back-to-back episodes this week.

Code:
In the next episode preview, the creators finally revealed what happened (or rather is happening) to Shaw. So hopefully she'll rejoin the team shortly for an epic showdown with Samaritan. Is Root a lesbian, or is she just missing her bestie; I can't figure that one out?

I enjoyed last night's episode of Legends of Tomorrow, but probably for the fact that Kendra was noticeably not in it much.

Code:
Captain Cold switcheroo was a surprise. His sarcasm will be missed. RIP

Watched Civil War today as well. Great movie overall. I liked the ethical viewpoint of each superhero having to make an ethical decision to justify reasoning and stance based on the facts and how they viewed themselves accountable [or justifiedly not] to nations. I also enjoyed seeing some new faces on screen meshing with other old faces. Without getting into spoilers, I would say there's quite a rift created within the Avengers. I'm curious now to how it will resolve itself in the forthcoming MCU films.

Has anyone seen Captain America: Civil War yet? I'm going tomorrow. Should be fun, it's going to be nice to see new superheroes faces on screen. It's ironic to me how much it looks like an Avengers movie, yet the movie title makes sense since the plot centers on Captain America/Steve Rogers on the run.

... Only downside is that Eno sounds... heartbreakingly Bowie-ish here.

Did you hear part 3? It was a cover of Velvet Underground. Sounds like a perfect song to play at a funeral during a eulogy speech, lol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym4hmN_5ns0
