10x08 The One with the Late Thanksgiving [5th or so watch]

Game of Thrones
4x01 Two Swords
Wait, what's this -- more GoT already? Yes, well, with one major event already having happened -- and been widely discussed all over the internet & everywhere else -- and with many more promised by Those In The Know for later in the season, I decided that, for my own sake, I should forgo my normal year-long wait for the Blu-ray release and just enjoy the series at the same time as everyone else. I'll only have the whole damned thing spoiled if I don't.

The Mentalist
6x17 Silver Wings of Time
Well that was disappointingly obvious.
[Watch it (again) on Demand 5.]


Nemo: Heart of Ice by Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill

A spin-off from / aside to The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, starring Captain Nemo's daughter as introduced to us in Century Vol.1. Moore's taken a break from ongoing League storytelling for a trilogy of these more-or-less-standalone tales: the second was released last month, the third is due... sometime. Considering Moore and O'Neill have managed one a year of late, hopefully in March 2015, and we can have League Vol.IV in 2016.

Heart of Ice is a slighter, more straightforward story than we're used to from League books (especially the last two), which makes it kind of refreshing: it's a clean adventure yarn, not an intricate and disturbing puzzle (though it's disturbing in places, naturally). Nonetheless, it's still packed with obscure allusions, making this guide not essential but worthwhile.
