I was mostly annoyed with the inconsistencies in the characters' behavior, and their constant refusal to make an obvious logical decision. "Gonna suicide now" "I will fight for my life with all my might!" Or: staying put solves the problem, so the character goes on a lengthy and dangerous journey. Or: asking an obvious question solves a thorny issue, so the character remains silent. The sequels appear to be even worse in that regard.

March 2012 Media Thread

There was a recent discussion considering the idea of a monthly Book (later expanded to movies, links, etc) thread. The poll was pretty unanimous that this was A Good Idea (tm). The past two threads have had a decent amount of activity, so let's keep going.

Post what you're reading, listening to, watching, and your opinion of it. Post recommendations to blogs. Post whatever media you feel like discussing!


  • Please avoid downvoting; this is a thread for sharing subjective experiences, and people should feel comfortable posting their personal opinion without fearing a karma backlash. If you disagree with a person's recommendation, please post a comment to that effect.
  • If you want to post something that (you know) has been recommended before, but have another recommendation to add, please link to the original, so that the reader has both recommendations.
  • Please use the comment trees, which I was apparently too dumb to do.
