Ricchard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield #2, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)

I think these promos pictures for Thorin are the best yet!!! The armour was designed & made, of course, by Weta Workshop of NZ. FANtastic!!!

LEGENDS (2014) Idenity episode 10, fave Sean Bean shots

So, a lot of the truth is now known, Verax Corporation has won this round, and the DCO paid the price of knowing too much information. But the overall war is still on. Does Martin remain Martin Odum, or need to be someone entirely new? Is he really MI6 or was that just another lie attached to a legend? WHO IS HE REALLY? I think there’s enough questions still remaining for a Series 2! It’s Martin Odum’s mystery & Sean’s stellar performance that kept me watching every week. I really like the supporting characters of Tony Rice, Maggie & Aiden Odum too, and hope to see more of them. I didn’t much like them but Nelson Gates & Sonya turned out all right in the end, and they are still in the picture.

Again, here’s the final Series 1 survey for LEGENDS, the info from which I hope is used for a Series 2!!

LEGENDS (2014) Wilderness of Mirrors episode 9, fave Sean Bean shots

This episode had an enormous amount of info to take in! What is Martin, or whoever he is, going to do now? How was he connected to Verax in Iraq? What sort of operation was Raining Fire? Will Sonya survive? Fortunately TNT decided not to make us wait & showed episode 10 immediately after! #DONTKILLSEANBEAN still going strong!!

Here’s the final Series 1 survey for LEGENDS, the info from which I hope is used for a Series 2!!

LEGENDS (2014) Iconoclast episode 8, fave Sean Bean shots

WOW! Now that’s a cliffhanger I didn’t see coming! Quite a lot to resolve in next week’s series 1 finale, which consists of the last 2 episodes 9 & 10. My biggest questions: Who is Martin Odum? What’s Sonya & Gates got to do with it? Who killed McCombs, Dobson & the other Iraq war veteran? Does it have anything to do with Martin’s “real” identity? Very glad to see Tony Rice & Martin paired again, I think they make a great team. Still not too fond of the Egan legend but it has served it’s purpose, the power of the press! And I really like Maggie, she’s been kickass with the technical & computer support. All coming to a head next week but really, all I ask is #DONTKILLSEANBEAN!!

OUTLANDER (2014) 108 #3 Jamie & Claire & promises in “Both Sides Now’

Claire to Jamie: “You shouldn’t make promises you cannot keep.”

And neither should you, Claire! I am disappointed that the all-important discussion between Jamie & Claire about honesty is missing so far, I surely hope it’s addressed in the show because IMO it’s one of the biggest cornerstones of their marriage. Geillis had it right when she said that “promises in the Highlands are a serious thing,” and Claire at that time replied they were also serious in her world. But are some promises more important than others? Claire blew off all of her promises to Jamie when she saw the stones again, yeah? Her promises to Frank are still foremost right now. Jamie was always sincere in his promises, and Frank, at this point, wanted to keep his.

I’ll relent & say that I think the discussion about honesty is going to come in the next few episodes, if not the next, given all the stuff that’s yet to happen including the truth finally being told. Frank got told the truth & he couldn’t handle it. What about Jamie?

OUTLANDER (2014) 108 #2 Jamie & Claire defending their lives in “Both Sides Now”

Jamie: “Every man and woman in the world needs to know how to defend themselves, Sassenach.”

Self-defense is just as important now as it was in the 18th Century. I teach martial arts classes to both children & adults, there is no reason whatsoever that any able-bodied person should be unable to defend themselves in some way when attacked. So these scenes were of particular importance to me. First, the MacKenzie party was attacked by members of rival clan Grant & gave a good account of themselves, which precipitated Claire’s lesson in the use of a knife. They give her a sgian dubh, a small blade usually hidden in clothing. Second, such lesson was timely when she & Jamie were attacked by 2 army deserters bent on murder & they had to act or be killed. Third, when Claire is taken to Captain Randall, he starts to use physical violence against her & Jamie has to act to help Claire, as he feels he must protect his wife.

In upcoming episodes 109-116, Jamie & Claire will need to defend themselves & each other against more perils which will test them both.

I have never believed in nor accepted a “damsel in distress” scenario for either women OR men. Be protective of & help others, but also be sure to believe in & help yourself!

OUTLANDER (2014) 108 #1 Jamie & Claire meet Hugh Munro in “Both Sides Now”

The scene on the high hill with Jamie & Claire meeting former Turk prisoner & professional beggar Hugh Munro is one of my biggest faves from the book & it was well represented on TV right down to the sign language & the all important metaphorical piece of amber. Sad missing Hugh’s bit of poetry though!

LEGENDS (2014) Quicksand episode 7, fave Sean Bean shots

I was definitely not OK with seeing a human/woman rights activist collude with those resorting to violence to send a message. I hope this was a mis-perception as violence never solves anything. I know Martin’s latest legend Sebastian Egan is the fave of both Sean & character Martin but beyond drinking scotch, I’m not too impressed yet. I assume this episode was a cliffhanger & the real story will be revealed next week. The thing I DID love was pairing Tony Rice with Martin, I think they make a great team! Plus Tony will learn more about Martin, hopefully to fit pieces into his murder case & the underlying identity mystery. Don’t trust Gates or Sonya and #DONTKILLSEANBEAN!!
