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.

Hmm, not sure yet. I might give this show a chance; but I'll keep this tip in mind. Thanks.

@koobz: Goddamn. Fantastic work there, dude.

As for the series, I'm really loving it. Drew has really come into his own, especially compared to just an year back, when he was primarily the quiet guy with some jokes here and there ("I'm dressed as a speed bump!" comes to mind).

And compared to how cynical the rest of the team can get, Dan and Drew are a fantastic team. Even when they don't like stuff, they find ways to have fun with it.

I thought a couple of scenes were funny, but that's it. Didn't care much for the story or the villian and honestly - Rocket was the only good part of the movie. I don't know how people consider this better than other Marvel movies (hell, I liked Iron Man 2 and 3 more than this). Some of the jokes had terrible delivery and felt like lines that needed a laugh track (Gamora's line of "I'm surrounded by idiots" comes to mind).

But hey, opinions and all. I'm genuinely glad a lot of people enjoyed it; just wish that I liked it as well.

I have no clue how someone hasn't posted this yet, but @drewbert is a fairly famous actor -

People really, really need to fucking stop with the "Why you should..." topic titles / headlines.

How come I've never heard a single good thing about the XBox One? How did MS screw us this badly?

Grid: Autosport.

And it just might be the best racing game I've ever played. Besides Grid 2, Codemasters has never disappointed me. They have nailed the perfect handling model. It's a great blend of arcade and sim.

Joel is clearly an asshole. I never thought that aspect of the ending was all that interesting.

However, Ellie clearly doesn't believe his lies. How will this affect their relationship? Heck, even the last couple minutes when you're Ellie felt awkward as fuck - especially when Joel kept talking about the things they'll do from now on while Ellie just silently listened. I get the feeling that Ellie will continue to stay with him cause he's the only person left in her life who cares for her. But depending on whether or not she can overlook what he did (I don't think she will), she may just shelve those feelings and just continue the relationship like normal, hoping for better days.

And I'm not trying to paint her as someone desperate, it just seems like the thing she would do, considering how afraid she is of dying alone.

All this being said, I wish I liked this game more. Although the story and the characters were fucking fantastic, the gameplay segments were so goddamn boring that I'm hesitant to call it a good "game" (maybe a good X, not sure what that "X" is). The interactive portions of the game were barely functional and never felt rewarding to me. Stealth is, to be fair, a hard genre to execute, but it can be done way, way better. I feel like I could have watched a playthrough on YouTube and enjoyed it just as much, without having to slog through the gameplay segments.

Goddamn, this whole thing is just awkward to watch. Neither side wants to take responsibility for a product that they released together. That's just sad. And not "sad" in a "you guys suck" way, it's genuinely disheartening to witness.
