Long Strange Trip on Amazon Prime was fantastic. If you like the Grateful Dead, have ever been into their music, or were just curious about that huge chunk of culture... it was so good. I went to a lot of Dead shows and their music has a particularly big place in my heart, almost a soundtrack for my late high school and early college years. For me, the anecdotes I'd never heard before and the old footage I'd never seen were so worth the 4+ hours of watching :D

And I'm not a fan of poetry as a rule, but Robert Hunter is the closest I get--his lyrics are everything.

JTV is literally one of my all time favorite shows! It's so, so, SO good. Handles a lot of fabulous issues with grace and charm, has an awesome cast, and is just so much fun.

Plus, I could look at Rafael literally all day long. Hoo boy.

Yes! Gina Rodriguez brings so much to Jane. It reminds me a bit of Wonderfalls, with inanimate objects sometimes talking. Plus, so many minorities in the cast!

Wonderfaaaaalllllssss! High five for one of my favorite obscure TV shows. :D

I love the diversity and I absolutely LOVE Jane. Her little alter egos and fantasy sequences are just fantastic.

I'm more than halfway done with season 2. I know what happens generally in season 3, though, so it feels a little like hurtling into a basket of pain.

The part where Jane and Rafael find out that there may be a chromosomal problem with their baby, though - this exactly happened to me. Except it was really obvious that my son had a major defect - the only question was whether it was caused by a chromosomal problem, in which case it likely would have been incompatible with life. I can still remember when I was 20 weeks pregnant and went to find out if I was having a boy or girl, and then the ultrasound tech's demeanor changed. Except our ultrasound tech told us generally what she saw.

My biggest problem with that part is where they didn't see a geneticist and then the facts surrounding amnio. Because they would have been referred. We did, and that's when we did amnio. The risk of miscarriage from amnio at 20 weeks is less than at, for example, 12 weeks. I'm glad they had her do the amnio, though.

Yes. We love love love Martin. The humans, not so much. But it's not a bad little show. Has it been renewed for next season?

i don't want a female doctor. if they wanted a female lead, River Song or Missy would have been a GREAT spin off and i'd have watched the hell out of that. but... not this.

Doesn't it seem too coincidental that three of our main protagonists - Dany, John and Tyrion - all lost their mothers in childbirth? Was Martin just being lazy by repeating that tragic background to create drama in those characters' stories? Or will that common background somehow play an important part in the future?
Is there no such thing as 'coincidence' when it comes to GoT? :P

There is that theory Tyrion is not a Lannister..

I read these books before the show. I'm dying for conclusions!

to further elaborate, the theory is that tywin isn't his father, but his mother is still joanna - aerys was wildly infatuated with her and there are questions surrounding those two.

i'm guessing there isn't, myself.

So it's suggested that all three, unrelated women had fatal complications giving birth to Targaryen-fathered children? Two by the Mad King Aerys (Tyrion, Dany), and one by Aerys's son, Rhaegar (John)?
:?

I read the books too, and loved them. Don't love the 5 year (plus) gaps per book. Super sad the conclusion will come in the TV show before the books. If the books ever get finished. Kinda got burned on that. Don't love that as a book reader I'm stuck with spoilers, everywhere. Might as well watch (or read the recaps) since that is all there is.

:?
yes, and! if you remember, the baby that dany had was... not ok. and tyrion himself came out, well, the way he did. so there are even further questions about some potentially nasty genes in the targaryen gene pool that cause either birth defects seen in the resulting child, or defects in the birth STUFF (amniotic fluid/sack, placenta, everything) that kill the mother.
