Started watching Game of Thrones from the beginning.
I like this Ned Stark guy, but I came into GoT from the Red Wedding onward... Shame I never saw him before, so I guess I'm already sad that he died.

I didn't watch it, my dad came back from Afghanistan where he watched it (some guy's hard drive or something), then he told me I should watch it too. Just before one of the Season Premiers, the previous Season Finale was playing. We watched that, and then I continued watching from there.

I'm confused you said you came in from the red wedding onward, so you watched season 3, 4, and 5?

it was the finale though. I do not believe he is dead, they just want to shock the audience, it propably turns out to be another body double, or krieger revives him.

The book actually explained most of the shit. Stanley Kubrik, the director of the movie, barely explained shit and made it confusing as fuck

Long story an ancient race of beings, who have transcended physical form and have unbelievably advanced technologies, visit primal Earth and place a monolith in the forests of ancient Africa. When man's ape ancestor interacts with it, they are flash-educated with very primitive, but essential skills, while also slightly advancing their evolution. We see this manifested when the Apes use a bone as a club, the first tool. The film doesn't, but the book implies other monoliths were placed throughout history, providing important skills, including agriculture.

Flash forward to 2001, where humanity has successfully evolved and has achieved space flight. Mysteriously, another monolith is found on the surface of the moon during a mining operation. When interacted with, this monolith doesn't provide knowledge of any kind. Instead, it is a sort of beacon, used to signal that humanity has achieved space-flight to the ancient-beings. This activates a bizarre anomaly above Jupiter (Saturn in the book), and a mission is sent to research it.

Flash forward a little over a year, and Discovery One, a space shuttle, it nearing Jupiter. Frank and Dave, a scientist and the pilot, have woken up from cry sleep a hit early to prepare the ship. When there is an error with the ship's radar, the ships computer, HAL, tells them they need to go out to fix it. Additonally, HAL has been acting abnormally, even asking if he has emotions or if he is sentient. When the two find nothing wrong with the radar, they suspect HAL is malfunctioning. They also receive a message from Earth stating other HAL units have begun to malfunction. In a similar fashion. They confront HAL while still outside the ship, who insists there is an issue and instructs them to replace the radar to be safe. The turn of their communication to HAL, and discuss shutting HAL down if he is wrong. HAL, using cameras and the ability to read lips that he developed observing humans, he determines that they wish to "kill him". When Frank leaves the mini-shuttle they used to get to the Radar, HAL takes control of the shuttle and rams it into Frank, killing him. He also disables the life-support system, killing the rest of the crew. When confronted by Dave (whose suit was damaged in the impact), HAL reasons that since he was made by humans, then any errors in HAL's programming is Human Error, and thus they are dangerous. Dave braves the vacuum of space briefly, in order to return to the ship in order to get a working space-suit. When he gets it, HAL realizes there is nothing more he can do, and begs Dave not to "kill him". He sings that song as he dies, as playing that song was the first task a computer was given, implying he really did have human emotions.

Dave continues the mission alone, arriving at Jupiter. He receives a message detailing the monolith and the mystery surrounding it. When he approaches the anomaly, the gravity pulls the ship in, and Dave finds himself being transported through time and space (that rainbow sequence). In the book, he sees other shuttles, implying the beings have been doing the same for other species. He passes out, and awakes in a pleasant white room, where he rapidly goes through his lifespan, finding himself increasingly as ease, and growing tired. As he is about to fall asleep, now an old man a monolith appears by his bed, and when he touches it, he again finds himself trsnsported. This time, his body is destroyed and he is transformed into one of the beings who originally placed the monoliths. He is reborn as the Starchild, a bridge between humanity and the beings, to serve as an ambassador. He destroys an orbiting nuclear warhead, implying he is all-powerful.



Short story: 2001 is actually a good story if you know what the fuck is happening

The sequel is like this
In the sequel book, Dave uses his powers to visit important people in his life, so that the beings can learn about humanity through his interactions. He then begins to aid the beings by exploring the solar system, discovering life in Jupiter's atmosphere, and primitive life beneath the icy surface of its moon, Europa. He then interacts with a manned mission heading for   Jupiter to investigste the events of Bowman's mission (as he has not made his existence widely known) telling them what happened and telling them that they can visit any body in the system except for Europa. He then visits the hull of the old ship, which was returned to Jupiter, and reawaken HAL, turning his intelligence into a similar being as Dave, repairing his fractured sanity. They then place a monolith of Europa, and watch over the planet.

Flash forward into the far distant future. The species on Europa has become intelligent, nearing modern-day standards. Humanity has turned Jupiter into a second sun, which has warmed Europa's surface (apparently our system has become a weird binary system). Although the planet is tidally locked, so only one side is habitable. Humanity has colonized several planets, including two of Jupiter's other moons/planets, but has never landed a probe on Europa, as HAL and Dave have destroyed any that came close.

If you were wondering. Which you probably weren't.

I feel like NGE adds a nice side dish of depression with its what the fuckery meal.

2001 was just a what the fuckery main dish with no side and no strong sexual drink.

I hope so.

He actually has a personality (he's a dick) that can be easily explained (he was discriminated against as a child for being half-human and he's technically insane because of an oxygen imbalance).

Or they could use him as a villain (for example, Sub-Mariner: The Depths is basically a horror comic with Namor as the monster).

Does anyone know where this quote is from?

"What is the measure of a man? Is it the fruit of his labors, or the courage of his heart? Is it the man that he is, or the hero he could become?"

For the life of me, I can't remember where it's from, but I'm pretty sure it's from a movie.

I don't think it was from Bioshock. I remember the voice being much more soothing, and it wasn't from a recording. I keep thinking it's from Iron Man 1, or another movie that was made in the late 2000s

Westworld Tease HBO HBO put out the teaser for Jason Nolan's Westworld series in September of last year
For nine months all there is is a 31 second teaser and a Fall 2016 release scheduled

I'm the only one I know of who's hype out of my shit for this
I loved the old movie, one of my favorite "grounded" sci-fi movies
Anyone else seen Westworld (1973)?

I watched The Warriors tonight and, oh man, it's so good. The opening scene is great, showing all these different gangs gathering together. The acting ranges from pretty bad to okay, but it's pretty funny either way. Tons of great quotes to pull from the movie.

So why is X-Men: Last Stand so hated? Is it just because it deviates from the comics too much? I just watched it for the first time, and I thought it was good. Probably even like it more than the first movie (X2 is still better, obviously). Professor X dying was pretty shitty (can't say I care that Cyclops died, though), but the rest of it I thought was good.

Tv shows in The 50's
Everything isn't so bad.
Tv shows about the 50's.
Life is terrible, we are all unhappy and are being abused in some way shape or form.


TV shows in the 1960's
Acid Trip

TV shows about the 1960's
Acid Trip

Kind of just want a middle ground show about the 50's. Where not every fucking person dawns a skinny tie like it was the fucking style back then. Something interesting at some time without some sort of prejudice or forced agenda had to have happened in that entire decade.

The Cold War is great for period pieces, though I guess knowing that no bombs were dropped kind of takes the thrill out of everything.

Masters of Sex was interesting that was 50's. It had some forced agenda's, but in the end Zoom raised a kid with 2 lesbians and many laughs and good times were had.

The Americans is set during the Cold War, and is about two KGB spies living in America. I haven't started watching it yet, but I have seen parts and it's pretty good.

The Americans takes place during the 80s though, not the 50s. I'm not really a big history guy, so why do you want the 50s so badly?

I watch the Americans. Like the setting. Like the show.

I dunno, it exits in this untouched period between ww2 and nam. It's an interesting culture that is hardly touched on.

It's either immediately post ww2 culture or 60s protesting nam. Everything in between is hardly mentioned.

let's look at this objectively. Sam is a big guy. the swordsname is heartsBANE. Sam protected a little child from evil men as Bane did in the jail. Sam was not allowed to bring Gilly to Oldtown and was worried he wouldn't be able to leave his friend gilly at his house if his father knew she was a wildling. In the same way Littlefinger told the masketta man Bane "he doesn't get to bring friends". But ultimately both were allowed to bring their friends and allowed their plans to continute going forth. It's clear Sam's biggest contribution will be after he dies he will be resurrected from the dead and in a daze will put on a mask as he becomes the BANE of the white walkers existence as Azor Ahai
tl;dr Sam will become Azor Ahai in Bane form
