What i REALLY hate about her is that she still loves that bastard Mako after he always cheats on her , just after they broke up in season 2 he got back to Asami , she is so stupid and that's what i mostly hate about her character .

Well, that decides it. I was planning on giving the second season a chance, but fuck that. The love triangle bullshit is so goddamn awful in the first season, I honestly thought that they would never bring it up in the second. In addition to what's already been said here about her terrible character, this honestly is the crap cherry on the shitcake.

The writers have really wrapped that dynamic up about as neatly as they could, having the characters involved openly admit they just do not function well romantically. It progresses to a sort of slightly-uncomfortable working relationship toward the end of season 2 and the very beginning of season 3, mattering less without going totally unacknowledged.

That said, if you're that down on the show, I'd say to just skip Book 2 and read a plot summary. There are a few pieces of lore dropped in this most recent season that make Book 2 less totally absurd in retrospect, but the character work and dialogue are pretty underserved throughout, and Book 3 is much better in that respect. Also, even if you do jump through, be absolutely sure to watch the two-part Avatar Wan intermission, it's truly unique stuff.

@jadegl: Ha, no problem! I was wondering whether they had gotten super sneaky with the details.

Was the time in the teaser ever actually 12:59? I was pretty certain it flipped between 11:59 and 00:00, but subtly inferring an impossible chronological state seems like something P.T. might do.

Following on overnow's point, I'd like to say that all beer sucks and is terrible. Most other alcoholic beverages don't do a hell of a lot better, but at least they're not so ubiquitous.

To follow up on this: cider is better than beer 100% of the time.

True, true.

This entire thread seems to be girding against and deflating a backlash that isn't happening.

My only hope is that they add a jorts/gloves/stunna shades/sneakers variant.

It takes a powerful will to hold a weapon without finding cause to use it.

The original Guild Wars wasn't an MMO so much as an online cooperative RPG, and most of the content from all four releases can be played solo (with AI companions). I never played a minion master build in the limited time I spent with that game's necromancer profession, but I know people would typically build out to either buff their minion army's damage potential by sacrificing their own defenses, or churn out cheap minions and blow them apart in the middle of groups of enemies. Your choice of secondary would then tend toward group healing and supportive buffs/debuffs to make each little bag o' bones more efficient.
