I've never known an hour to fly by as quickly as it did when watching that episode. 😄 It was brilliant.

I really enjoyed episode 6, I think that the older women are coming across as more interesting characters than the kids, but that could be my age.

Is it me, or does Liandrin have quite a striking face? I can't put my finger on.

Loving it. Its a fabulous series. I'm starting the second book as well, enjoying the books as much as the series. Wish I could tap into the one source to smooth my complexion and make me ageless 😁

Great episode. I love the speed they're keeping up, and that Rosamund Pike really shows Moraine has a lot of very intensely controlled emotions. She's making her a very compelling character.

Episode 6 was mixed for me, mostly because of how it deviated from the books.

Sophie Okenedo is amazing, though.

Book 7 really ? - wow it is keeping up a pace.Most series cover one book a season. Maybe now they have season2 commissioned they'll slow the pace down.

The show is still (sort of) in Book 1, though some things from Book 2 have happened.

That was enjoyable. It helped that Rosamund Pike's wig was better in a few scenes :-)

I find her smile quite odd. Like she has veneers that are too big for her mouth. Remember noticing this in True Blood as well. Assume they had all been given new teeth for filming.

Sad that there is only one episode left? Any recommendations for similar things to watch?
I’ve seen The Witcher, Shannara chronicles etc on Netflix

Thought would try the books first, am on book two, have mixed thoughts about it, interesting plot but not a fan of the writers’ style.

I'm enjoying season 2 of Witcher so far. Must not binge. Must not binge.

I really enjoyed episode 7, especially the opening scene that was just fantastic.

My only complaint is I wish there were more episodes, I can't believe there's only 1 left for this season. 🙁

It's so disappointing that they were only given 8 episodes, I can't understand it after the money and hype they put into it. Maybe it was a covid decision as the studio was probably more strapped than when they started

Episode 7 was the best so far, even with me yelling about a few changes that were completely out of character.

Good action, the story moved along a lot, and I like how they did Machin Shin.

Cursed is on Netflix Filopastry. Britannia might also be worth a look if you binge Witcher too quickly.

Like all of you I also can't believe there is only one episode left - whoosh! but I guess that is because we enjoy it so much. I liked this episode - the first part was really epic (love the hexagonal stones, like the basalt columns in the Giant's Causeway and a few other places) but I felt they spent a bit too long on the Love issues. It was still great though. Greats et up for next week's finale.
