"Raised by Wolves"

Anyone ?  I watched it all but resentfully ... by the end.  The writing was bereft of discipline IMO.

Anyone into House of the Dragon?

It's going to need a bit of runway to become the sensation Game of Thrones was. But it's got a good head start.

Gonna have to work pretty hard to make up for the disaster GoT ended up being. I don't think there's been a bigger bag fumble in TV history than D&D tanking that show.

Sad sad weekend for Cowboys and Bills fans especially... like my neighbour and me...

The upstart teams of the season (including a superbowl team from last year?) came through.

Next... Daytona 500.   Do I know ANY drivers ???

I am a Titans fan first (Music City Miracle is where it began) and Bills fan second.  The NFL is over for the year, as far as I'm concerned now.

On a positive note, The Last of Us on HBO/Crave is very good.

Maybe it was the hype, but I was let down. The first episode in particular felt very network TV if you know what I mean. I really hated the cold open explaining the nature of the fungus and spelling out how it could evolve to people. That said, episode 2 was a big improvement.

I didn't really like the cold open either, but a lot of TV-watchers (or readers for that matter) get annoyed if things aren't explained to them right away and they can't just go with the flow.  I remember how many people complained about the Witcher and how the different timelines were running concurrently.  I thought it was a cool device.  Lots of people were just confused.

Anyways, the first episode of the Last of Us was great other than that, practically following the opening of the game shot-for-shot.  Video game adaptations have always been garbage in the past and this seems like a case where they finally figured it out.

I think my one other beef is that it follows the game too closely, and I say that has someone who has played TLOU through at least three times. As you say there's a lot of scenes that are lifted straight from the game which I think is lazy, but I do get why they do it.

Watched Ep 1.

Didn't like.

I'll refrain from ridiculing it but I really really didn't like it.

This scene was shot right in front of my old office, so that's kinda cool.

Pretty cool effects to change it all up.  NGL I am a fanboy for the source material.
