  1. Yeeeh, this is going to be a good winter to stay in bed watching tv. The Gilded Age and Valhallah in February, sounds great.

  2. Karen Blixen sounds like it's right up my alley.

    I never did watch Vikings, though I know it was popular amongst some of my facebook friends there for awhile.

    1. I watched first two episodes and gave up when I realized they will glamourize them. Like in the first episode they are raping and pillaging some English village and in the next one they are portrayed as some kind of sexy heroes. Like what the what?

    2. Yeah, I think that's why I never watched it. I remember you saying that it was glorifying their barbaric traits. The same with Game of Thrones. Though I did just finish reading the series and the tv show must be a lot worse in that respect than in the books. I mean, there is a little bit of rape and a little bit of sex and quite a bit of violence, but I was expecting something completely off the wall with the way everyone was talking about the show. Honestly, I thought the books were so fecking boring, it took me 3 times as long to read them as any other book because they just weren't that good. Too many characters to keep up with and he'll talk about one character like they are the most important one in the story, then you won't hear about them again for another book or two. By then, I've done lost track of who the hell they even were in the story line. Idk how these books garnered so many fans that they made a show from them, but I suppose you can polish a turd and pass it off for entertainment these days and the masses will eat it right up.

    3. He is a terrible writer, always was and will be. And the series was terrible too, I watched only the first five seasons and even that was a torture.

    3. Don't you remember that PACT movie about her that I presented recently, you have the link above in the article. She chased some hot young poet when she was decrepit old crone and wanted to take him away from his young wife and child.
