I will answer injustice with justice.  
++ Another new and fantastic Game of Thrones trailer.

If I wasn't already excited for this season, I swear. Everything looks so good, and is it just me or does the production value look better than it usually does? I mean just the shots we see of Braavos and Meereen and the fighting sequences; the cinematography is just gonna wow us this season, I can feel it. We're just getting to the climax of certain things this season, and I cannot wait.

In less than a month Game of Thrones premieres, and shortly thereafter the DVD release of Desolation of Smaug. I'd say April is looking quite good.

++ Hearing that Maggie Q is going to portray Ching Shih in a new limited series, Red Flag, has got me incredibly excited. After Nikita sadly ended I was hoping to see more of her in other things, and then this announcement happened. What's more is that reading up on the actual history of this bamf hbic pirate makes me even more enthralled. So not only is my favorite lady getting more awesome jobs, she's playing a badass pirate and conqueror and it makes me very, very happy. It really does depend on how well it's going to be made, though, but in general we need more of these kinds of stories being told and if Maggie is on board, so am I.

++ There are two new shows that I'm curious about: Resurrection, that premiered yesterday, and Believe that is premiering tonight. Just based on the previews alone, the former will make me have feels and I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet. The latter, on the other hand, has me very intrigued by its premise. Also it was created by Alfonso Cuarón, so you know, gotta check it out for reasons.

I'm so excited I can hardly contain it!!! Dany's dragons! :D

They're so big! And I love that we got to see all three of them this time in the trailer. :D

Oh, Red Flag looks interesting. It seems like pirates are the new popular theme for TV shows, with Black Sails (I plan on watching it when I have less ongoing TV) and Crossbones.
Renée: Nikita. BAMF.rogueslayer452 on March 10th, 2014 09:50 pm (UTC)
I've noticed the sudden interest, too. I've been curious about Black Sails, but I haven't heard of Crossbones.

It's an NBC show, planned for the summer, I think. It was supposed to have Hugh Laurie in it, but in the end, it will have John Malkovich instead.

Eeee, that trailer! I think the moment that got me most excited was seeing Tywin sitting on the throne. BAMF.
Renée: Daenerys Targaryen.rogueslayer452 on March 10th, 2014 09:55 pm (UTC)
The whole thing is just amazing, but I admit seeing him on the throne gave me a chill of excitement. The trial is gonna be so tense, it's gonna be great.

Oooh "Red Flag" looks interesting! I hope it's a fun watch, we need more awesome FEMALE pirate stories.

I was not aware of Alfonso Cuaron directing a tv series. Let me know if I should watch it too!

Word on that, bonus when it's about actual historical women dominating everything. ;)

I wasn't aware myself until just recently. His Oscar win definitely helped amp up the promotion for his new series, of course, so it makes me hope that it's good.
Kimsaturnsdaughter on March 10th, 2014 10:24 pm (UTC)
Ooh nice, I'll definitely be checking out Red Flag. I adore Maggie Q.
Renée: Nikita. Femme Fatale.rogueslayer452 on March 11th, 2014 10:26 am (UTC)
Same. I love her so much. ♥ I know she'll be amazing in the role, because let's be honest, when isn't she? Similar to her as Nikita, this is the kind of role she was made for. :)

Won't be able to get Smaug until this summer since I'm going to be on a really, really tight budget until June. But it will be worth the wait.

So excited for Game of Thrones. This season is going to be awesome.

It seems so weird because it literally feels like the movie was just in theaters, but I'll be happy regardless once I have it physically in my hands. I also can't wait for the extended edition.

Seriously, I have a feeling this season is just gonna blow every other season out of the water.

I wasn't aware of her being in Divergent until I saw the previews for it, and it was quite a surprise. She's the only reason I would go see that movie, honestly, depending on how big her role is.

I want to see Believe. It looks interesting.
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 11th, 2014 11:17 am (UTC)
It really does. I'm hoping to get to watch it soon.
Abbeyplace_to_hide on March 11th, 2014 07:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah. I hoping to watch it soon too. :)

As soon as I have time again, I think I'm going to sit down and give GoT a proper go. So far have only seen the first two episodes, so.

What are you thoughts on those episodes you saw?

Most of my thoughts are "so many characters!"
I found it easier to follow on my second watch of the pilot (I saw 1x01 and 1x02 moooonths ago, but rewatched the pilot a few days ago for uni), and with more knowledge of the characters, etc, from livejournal. Don't think I was in the right mood when I first tried it.
But yeah. I do want to watch more and give it a real go, so hopefully I can do that soon.

Most of my thoughts are "so many characters!"

lol, yeah, there is, and the books are even worse. Like, aside from the main players, the show pretty much gave us only half of the characters that appears in the books.

I, myself, after (and while) watching the first season kind of delved right into spoiling myself from what I learned online just so I could understand what was happening because it can be ever complicated. As I'm reading the books, it's still kind of insane if you aren't paying close enough attention and it can get a bit confusing at times. So even though I know what happens I still have to refer to the ASOIAF wiki to refresh my memory on specifics. I find that rather helpful, especially if you aren't afraid of spoilers.

When you do find the right time to give it a proper run through, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. :)
Meredith: Snoopy - writingxfirefly9x on March 14th, 2014 01:43 pm (UTC)
I've heard that about the books. :P

I might end up going the same way. Not sure. I don't, in general, like spoilers.

:) We shall see. I doubt I'll get caught up any time soon. Next few weeks are going to be insane with moving and keeping up with uni, etc.

I saw the Resurrection pilot and it was very good. I should be seeing the Believe pilot today.
giallarhorn: Winter is cominggiallarhorn on March 12th, 2014 12:02 am (UTC)
Yeah, the production values look a lot higher than that of the previous season? They may have figured to step it up because they're going to more distant locations now.

I'm still trying to figure out roughly where they are in the books since there's parts that look like they could be from AFFC/ADWD, but then there's portions of ASoS still?
Renée: GOT. Daenerys.rogueslayer452 on March 14th, 2014 07:38 am (UTC)
I think it's because they have a new production designer for this season. If these trailers are anything to go by, I think we're going to be quite awed by how things are gonna look this season.

They're still in ASOS, though I read somewhere that they are beginning to introduce things that come later in the books. I'm rather curious as to how they're gonna handle the rest of the series and how they're gonna manage catching up to where the books currently have stopped. Are they going to continue to split the rest into two seasons each book?
giallarhorn: Winter is cominggiallarhorn on March 15th, 2014 07:10 pm (UTC)
I imagine they'll have to keep splitting the books into two seasons cause unless Martin picks up the speed with writing WoW, well. Given how long it took him to finish ADwD, they'll probably have to go on a hiatus or have him write the script for them?

This is of course assuming that Martin doesn't pull a Jordan

Red Flag looks good, doesn't it? I loved Maggie in Nikita, miss her so much! :)
Renée: Nikita. Femme Fatale.rogueslayer452 on March 14th, 2014 07:27 am (UTC)
Nikita was such a fantastic show. I miss it so much, and I wish it didn't get cancelled. On the other hand, I'm glad they were given the opportunity to give the show a proper sendoff. And I'm happy that Maggie is getting work after it, too. Which isn't surprising, but I'm glad that it appears to be something akin to her Nikita role of badassery. :)

I've seen the Believe pilot too, and it was also really good.
