The Three-Body Problem

So there's a book 4 and the story goes on?

I fully expect that brain probe to come back in to the story.

Foundation (Apple TV)

Ok, season 1 is in the bag. I was very put off through most of the season. In the books, nothing exciting happens, but you get excited by their creative problem solving to win the day. I guess the writers of this show couldn't sell that, so they added plenty of strife and soldiers and pew pew. But, ...

The Three-Body Problem

I rescind a previous observation.... book 3 STARTS "and here's what was also going on in the same time frame," but it quickly continues on with the main storyline. Hint: if you like the ending of book 2, you can stop there and have a complete, satisfying story in your head. But that story ...

Books (also show) - Robert Jordan - Wheel of Time

I'm caught up through S1E4. It's getting better, and I'm getting used to the WokeChange. I think they're doing a decent job compressing the important aspects of book 1 into a single season. The story itself remains compelling, my GF is enjoying it a lot, and she hasn't read the books. SHe's had a lo...

I bet by the time he realized he'd made a bad choice, he had to start pulling triggers.

That being said, the guys who attacked him seem like morons in more than one way.

Paid $30 for two combo meals at Popeyes, two days ago. I had to make sure I was paying for the correct order.

Just drove my mom's RV to Florida for her. Plan was to pick up my kid on the way down, do a couple days of diving, park the RV, rent a car, drive him back to Atlanta, then hop on a plane for home. No one will rent me a car for a one way trip. "Theres a car shortage , we can't let cars leave Orl...

The Three-Body Problem

So far book three takes place within the same time frame as books 1-2, except it's like "look what was also going on." So far not impressed, but I'm still early into it.

But so far it seems like you can stop at book 2 and get a complete story.

Watched the first episode of the new Amazon series. More than one change made to be Woke, but so far nothing damaging to the plot. Egwene being Pakistani (or whatever) instead of a petite blonde is still throwing me. My kid didn't like it. Says he doesn't like the "Amazon style" of making ...

Nah, like the first book, all the answers come in the last few pages. he used our sun amplification to send out another message to the galaxy.... Except this time it was a test. He sent out a friendly star map pointing at a star 50 light years away , to see what happened. Yep, some other hostile civ...

The Three-Body Problem

I'm listening to audio books. I understand the original language is Chinese. That being said, what's the deal in book 2 when the guy casts a spell on another star. They're using that word over and over, with no explanation. I feel like some idiom got lost in translation. So far in the story all we'v...
