This past episode once again exceeded my expectations. So many ties to the graphic novel. Jeremy Irons is great.

Spoiler!

Osu has more difficulty letting go than lost fans.

24's first season was basically about a terrorist plot run by Slobodan Milosevic, which is way better than Jack Ryan. Also Kiefer is just way more believable than John Krasinski, even if he's way smaller.

Chris Cillizza of CNN confirmed that Veep is a lot more representative of DC than House of Cards.

Let's give them more taxes they can spend wisely

Lets conform our idea of how to implement taxation based upon a cnn correspondent commenting on fictional television

It's not just Lost. Prometheus, Star Trek Into Darkness, Tomorrowland, and a whole bunch of other junk with that doofus' name on it.

Listen bitch, until you watch The Leftovers your opinion means nothing. Who gives a shit about any of those movies? None of them or your obsession with lame ass Lost has anything to do with how fucking great The Leftovers and now Watchmen are.

Game of Thrones never reached the heights The Leftovers did imo. I also don't see the comparison between the two really. The Leftovers elevated its source material and became something greater (admittedly I have not read the book, basing this on opinions of others and having watched the show). Anything the show did outside of the source material to expand on the story was done really fucking well. Game of Thrones was great because of its source material, when that ran out it faltered.

The comparison is that D&D tanked the last season of GoT and exposed their flaws as writers, just like Lindelof did with Lost except to a far more egregious degree. If they come back with another hit show/movie, people have every right to say "nah fuck that, they fumbled something so bad before that I'm not giving them another chance".

If D&D make a show as good as The Leftovers I will absolutely give them another shot and I will tell everyone too stubborn to do so that they are wrong.
