  1. I’d check those ones out. Though if we’re being really honest, I’d like BotW 2 more than most remakes.
  2. Anyone else slightly disappointed that they are choosing to remake Skyward Sword for the Switch? It isn’t a terrible game. Just not my favorite. And it was originally released on the Wii, so not that long ago. (We have it still at our house.) I really wish we were getting some from my childhood like Majora’s Mask or Ocarina of Time. I have never played them, but heard good things about them. (I’ve heard good stuff about Wind Waker too, but that was just re-released for the WiiU which we don’t have, but I’d be more willing to wait for yet another re-release of that one if it meant getting the other games first.)
  3. So excited after this episode. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Do you guys think this will get a season 2 or is this basically a mini series leading into Dr Strange and other phase 4 stuff? I’m glad we have Disney+, but I hope for those who don’t and just like the movies that they won’t be left behind.
  4. So we just finished watching Treasure Planet at our house tonight. I love this movie so much. I think it is seriously one of the most underrated Disney movies. I don’t understand how it didn’t do well at the box office and why more people don’t talk about it. The animation is great to me and while the story is just a version of Treasure Island, I think the relationship between Jim and Silver is so good in this adaptation. Both of their character arcs are fantastic and the secondary characters add so much as well. Anyway, that is one of my favorites that I’d say is generally underrated. Anyone else like this one? What are some of your favorite underrated movies/books/shows/etc?
  5. I thought it was interesting in this episode how One thing I think would be an interesting direction for the show to go reminds me of an episode of Star Trek: Voyager. Spoiler for the episode
  6. My reaction at the end of this episode was to just scream “What?!?” Ugh. I am loving this show. But tonight’s episode is the first one where I am mad I have to wait a week to see what happens next. One question I have thinking about the show this week is why is there even a broadcast signal at all? I still can’t decide if this is all Wanda’s doing or not. (My heart wants to say no.) But she clearly doesn’t want outside intervention, but then there is a signal to the outside that is clearly letting people see what is going on. I just want to add that as someone who hasn’t read any of the Marvel comics, I appreciate learning bits and pieces from this group. But I also appreciate that the show doesn’t rely on me having that knowledge to be good.
  7. Okay I loved this episode. I think one of my favorite things about it was I have enjoyed the sitcom style episodes, but appreciate this episode giving us a bigger picture. Oh, I also loved the
  8. My thoughts were that if they dropped it deep in the ocean in the physical realm then it is buried deep in hard to cut stone in the cognitive realm. Making it harder to reach in both places.
  9. It’s also possible to just stumble there accidentally if you are the type who just loves exploring like crazy. But you can’t accomplish any quests there unless you have talked to the right people in the main story. Also, I haven’t had a chance to absolutely geek out about this with anyone, but this is the spot if I’m going to. My husband absolutely knocked it out of the park for Christmas and got me the Creating a Champion book and art set. It is so awesome! We’re finishing our basement and letting it be our place to just be nerdy and enjoy our entertainment. So you better believe this map is getting framed and hung up on the wall. (Next step is getting some Sanderson art.)
  10. What age group would you recommend this series to? I haven’t read it myself, but my 7 year old is obsessed with all things dragons and fantasy and wants to branch out. He’s read (listened on audible to) the first 3 Harry Potter books, Brandon Mull’s Fablehaven, Dragonwatch, and Candyshop War series along with starting Five Kingdoms, and is currently actually reading the Magic Treehouse series finishing about one a day of those. Would this be a good series for him now or would it be better for him to wait? Also what about for a mom who accepts fantasy for all ages as appropriate personal reading and needs something to help her out of the post RoW book coma.
  11. My husband and I enjoyed the first two episodes. I am definitely glad for the mystery/sinister undertones. I genuinely was laughing as if it was just a sitcom, but knowing there is something weird going on makes it even better.
  12. I don’t know how to make memes. But I’ve been playing Breath of the Wild lately and decided that Adolin Kholin and Link are basically one and the same. A sword/weapon and fabulous outfit for every occasion. Is there anyone who can meme this for me?
  13. Based on this top ten I’d say people on this forum are clearly fantasy/sci-fi fans. Ha ha. No surprises there. Some great ones on the list. Hard to choose.
  14. First off I just want to say that I have really enjoyed this show. I thought the first season was great, but this season was even better. I enjoyed each episode connecting to the next and it really felt more like a cohesive story instead of an episodic series. (Which aren’t bad when that is what you are going for.)
  15. Wow. I love that you shared that interview. Ha ha. I feel a small amount of personal satisfaction being indirectly validated by my favorite author. And I agree with you about anything in Stormlight regarding a redemption needing to be really earned and delivered well so it doesn’t feel cheap. (On a really side note, if I ever do any writing myself, one of my ideas focuses heavy on the idea of redemption by going one of two ways. A character goes for the redemption save someone suicide in order to die seeming like a good person. Succeeds in the dying part, but the rest of the book is people he knew vs strangers dealing with whether or not that makes them good. The other way is trying the save someone suicide plan, failing to die, trying again and again and actually ending up redeemed by learning to be a good person who cares about other people.)
