I don't think any of them should die. Just get new actors to play them when the current ones are tired of it.

Only if you don't think 14th amendment protection does not/should not extend to the LGBT community.

The L,G and B are not affected by this, unless I've missed something.

TBH I'm not sure why LGB is linked so firmly to T in general.

Also, refresh my memory but how would this violate the 14th amendment?

Serving in the military is not a Constitutionally-protected right. The military excludes people from serving for a whole host reasons, both mental and physical.

Seeing as how it's a completely new character (albeit one inspired by another character), and comics aren't exactly known for realism, I'm not seeing how this drops Batman's stock.

That is what normally happens, yes. But the Unsullied don't get to keep any of their block and tackle.

Root and steam, same as Varys.

The savages!

I wanted to see his stump, I won't lie.

I think the common practice is to trim the berries but leave the twig.

Bronn would win more often than not. He's more cunning.

Ares and Enchantress. You get the near-best of both worlds of magic and physical might. The rest are too one-dimensional. Additionally, these skills ets will complement each other. Ares is crafty af and will teach his progeny how to wield the weapons and tactics of war. Amora will not only teach the child magic, but also about where to obtain magical weapons and artifacts.

Also, Angela is a fucking moron and Frau Totenkinder will just kill the kid in order to power herself up.

Not a great episode. Not bad, but it seemed pretty formulaic.

The device Euron used to board Yara's ship was first invented by the Romans to board the ships of the Carthaginians during the First Punic War, which was pretty cool.

Euron and Yara's fight is a bit anti-climactic, since they're minor characters. I didn't really care who won. Good to see the Sand Snakes go as they are bad at acting and stunt fighting.

I agree that things are moving pretty quickly. Ravens traversing Westeros in a day, ships and armies moving all around the map, but also Samwell finding a cure for Jorah's disease in basically no time at all. That's on top of him finding the Dragonstone mound. Is he the only guy in the Citadel who's cracking open a book?

Batman really fucked up here, letting a kid get killed. That is a very un-Batman-like thing to have happen.

Anyone see it? Really good.

This is how I like music to be used in a film. It enhances the mood established by the actors and director, but it doesn't do the heavy lifting.

What's the timeline in this storyline? How much time has passed since Cap took over? His stranglehold on the USA, and the way schools are teaching a revised curriculum to students who just go along with it, makes it seem like at least a few years have passed. Same with Sam Wilson's new career as a people smuggler. But the behavior of the main characters makes it seem like it's been only weeks.

The teen team of new Wasp, Miles Spidey, Vision's daughter, etc. is so fucking generic and boring. Compare these losers to, say, the New Mutants.

The difference is you have morals, and these people do not.

The decision to change the Doctor's gender was not made in a vacuum and everyone knows it. It's a statement. That's why fans are apprehensive.

From what I understand, slavery is just one aspect of this show. It's a show about what if the Confedracy seceded. This is a question that is quite popular in historical fiction, along with What if Germany won WWII, what if the USSR won the Cold War, what if Napoleon defeated England, etc. Slavery is of course part of it but it's not a one-issue topic.

It's as silly as saying Man in the High Castle and WWII historical fiction is only about the Holocaust/Jews.
