"Suspension of disbelief" goes back to Aristotle: a blind society that could--or would even want to--produce elaborate costumes and VISUAL ornaments; machines that are still working after a few hundred years; two children in an illiterate world who teach themselves to read--and understand what they were reading--in a matter of years (even assuming one of the books is a picture dictionary); a system of knots and spaces that aren't just memory devices, but convey new information (this would require 40 unique knot/space patterns for sounds, with strings hundreds of feet long, or 40,000 unique patterns for words, which is impossible). So turning off the critical, logic mind is absolutely required--and then something unexpected happens: this fantasy is actually a GOOD story well-told. Beautiful photography and ambiance, interesting characters and acting, pacing with action and exposition balanced, and an engrossing world all combine to make something rather new and well worth watching. The first season is only half over, and season 2 will start filming in February 2020. So for the rest of 2019 we get 8*-9* series for both fantasy and scifi (The Mandalorian) to make up for a string of real disappointments.
@CuteGothPirate--(1) I wish that too, but the linkers here can't do the titling and have to take it as they find it; if the domain doesn't tell the size, I use an extension in Firefox that does (2) there are surprisingly few links >200; vidoza added; better ones are coming (3) some domains are seeing increased traffic (and transfers from the dead sites) that they aren't equipped for, but some are upgrading; smaller files work better for most for now
@WoJo--Dzięki, szalony chłopiec odszedł ! Works fine on UBlock
If you're having problems with buffering on onlystream ("SLOWLYSTREAM"), you're not alone. The latest 480MB Hudson&Rex episode of 43min at 720p took me 98min to DL--and the episode had not yet completely played through, it was buffering so bad. Unfortunately, onlystream usually has the higher-p links. Mixdrop works a lot better, but doesn't have the links--so far. I'd like to hear what domain(s) y'all prefer--and which ones are just a pain.
@HRRoach--When you press the blue "Watch video from" button, it takes you to the video & you can look at the title above it; you want "INTERNAL or REPACK" to appear there. Or once the video starts to play you can look to the lower right corner at the logo that pops up: CTV or CW. You DON'T want CTV. I've found two SD links, but they may buffer (or diasppear).
@Comments in Reviews & Chat on both sites--WotW is an Anglo-French series that comes in two languages, but the subtitles are only in French, not English. You can find English srt's for episodes 1-5 at https://www.podnapisi.net/ , but they are not very good and DO NOT translate the French parts, which makes them useless if you don't speak French. There are two groups distributing WotW, and it may be that the group responsible for North America will have COMPLETE English subtitles, but there is no information as to when this will be.
[5*] "WotW" is a barely-okay post-apocalyse survival series, but there's very little of HG Wells here. The Martians aren't important; the cause could just as easily have been a pandemic or zombies or mutants. And it makes a bad mistake in its technical side: this Anglo-French series comes in two languages, but the subtitles are only in French, not English. (You can find English srt's for episodes 1-5 at https://www.podnapisi.net/ , but they are not very good and DO NOT translate the French.) Overall, the series is a big disappointment; comparisons to the Spielberg movie are absurd. What this has in common with THEWotW is that in both cases the result is not a modern adaptation of what Wells wrote; in both cases the writers/producers crammed their own stories under the public-domain title and disrespected the most famous literary work in science-fiction. "Age of the Living Dead", "The War of the Worlds", "War of the Worlds"--a pretty pathetic showing for British scifi this year.
[2*] I didn't expect much; BBC delivered even less. There's no need to add to the following well-done review by paul on page 1; it sums up all the other 1-4* reviews (And yes, there are people who gave "THEwotw" 8, 9, 10*; they are either literary whores hired by BBC or belong in institutions for the terminally stupid.) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8001226/reviews?ref_=tt_ov_rt.
BIG THANKS TO POLISH84 & TONIA1 for the WotW links...BUT: I looked at these. Most are in English, but some sont en Français. These are cracked from the tv packs WhiteBread & I were talking about. There are two packs: War of the Worlds 2019 S01 FRENCH 720p WEB H264-CiELOS & War of the Worlds 2019 S01 iNTERNAL MULTi 720p WEB H264-CiELOS. The first has this note: "This is a dual-language release (two audio tracks, french subs for use with the English audio)." But none of these has that option; the converter just chose one or the other.----ALSO no high-quality verystream links anywhere yet.
The repacks have just started coming out. Look for iNTERNAL or READNFO in the link's title. I saw one verystream 720p in the sister site already. If you can't find a replacement, leave a note like "I still need a verystream 720p TBS repack".
SOLVED--From IMDb: "The War of the Worlds" Episode 1.2--"In the epic CONCLUSION George and Amy seek shelter, but will it be enough to survive the invasion?" Then an Episode 1.3 is listed without information. What was to have been 3 1-hour episodes has become 2 1½-hour episodes (& was broadcast in NZ that way)--and every source said 3 episodes and got it wrong. So that's all, folks.
REPOST: Still nothing. (If you've watched episodes 1 & 2, you already know that this mini-series is just BAD; sooner or later the conclusion will be put here, but please don't blame the linkers for posting this crime against literature.)
(RE-REPOST:) There are TWO series: "THE War of the Worlds" (3 episodes, BBC) and "War of the Worlds" (8 episodes, supposed to be closer to the 2005 Spielberg movie.) . THE EARLIEST THREE LINKS HERE ARE TO THE WRONG SERIES, so just ignore them. This episode-- in English--in a form which this site can use-- isn't available anywhere yet. It will be posted sooner or later
@Bogo--it's also the wrong show--THE WotW. Please look at the reviews below s01e01 (which has cut off some of them) OR go to page 3 of the main reviews. @Whitebread--yep, comment there (you?): "This is a dual-language release (two audio tracks, french subs for use with the English audio)." Unfortunately, it took me over 2 hours to DL that from Rapidgator, which isn't gonna work for this site. And to top that, WIki says the N.American version starts on the 30th...wax on, wax off
(I posted this 5 hours ago) There are TWO shows: "THE War of the Worlds" (3 episodes, BBC) and "War of the Worlds" (8 episodes, supposed to be closer to the 2005 Spielberg movie.) . THE EARLIEST THREE LINKS HERE ARE TO THE WRONG SERIES, so just ignore them.
The final episode of THE WotW will be posted within a few hours (hopefully); the first episode of WotW will be posted late today (hopefully). (Confusion from external reviews, seach-engine results, sites, links--all because of the stupid THE & our tendency to drop it in references. And because Wells' work is in public domain, anybody can use all or part of its title and put whatever they want under it.)
There are TWO shows: "THE War of the Worlds" (3 episodes, BBC) and "War of the Worlds" (8 episodes, supposed to be closer to the 2005 Spielberg movie.) The first is BAD; the one starting today looks promising. THE EARLIEST THREE LINKS HERE ARE TO THE WRONG SERIES, so just ignore them.
@All--There are still NO high-quality links anywhere. When such links are missing from sites that always have them in a timely manner, something is wrong at the source, but no one is saying what it is. This happens a couple of times a year, and all we can do is wait.
The old problem of interplanetary/interstellar communication in fiction: What if that is not by radio waves, but something like in Pohl's Gateway books, or the tachyonic antitelephone, or the good ol' ansible? And yeah, that is today less hard science than scientific fantasy, but 3 1/2 centuries is a looooog time to work out superluminary communication, even in this timeline where development is a lot slower than in, say, Star Trek's. Also, I get what you you mean about the tone, but I think at least some of it is intentional. In this future, mankind is just barely holding on (even on Mars, which I'd like to see more of), so it's almost the opposite in feel of STNG's "shiny happy people holding hands" (which, with Andromeda, are my other favorite scifi shows).==There's probably a blog somewhere that has "the official answers"; there are too many science nerds--including the authors--for there not to be one.
"The Expanse" is my favorite current fiction series (and Amos (Wes Chatham) my favorite character). It may well be THE best scifi series: good storytelling and characters combined with first-rate filming and sets that make it look like a real possible future in its attention to hard science and utilitarian engineering. There's a moment when someone gets spaced/airlocked (which is pretty much a space cliche), and, well, read : https://io9.gizmodo.com/19-times-someone-gets-thrown-into-space-from-worst-to-1753938085. "The Expanse" gets it right. Before the 13 Dec start of Season 4, I'll be rewatching this 9 1/2* series.
@Anyone interested in the Watchmen series. It's ignoring the movie and has tons of easter eggs based on the comics. You can get them in graphic-novel form at http://getcomics.info/ (or one of the other comic sites). Search for "Watchmen" & you'll see multiple editions, with the 2019 the latest. If you're a hard-core fan, you might want the 2017 Annotated Edition. The site is safe & the Mediafire link works fastest for me.
@SAM996--This is what gives linkers headaches: The Wiki entry has the schedule given here, but the IMDb has a different schedule and ends with 106; someone in the reviews indicated that 107 was the last episode. That would be my guess, and that the last 4 episodes will either be saved for season 2 or streamed later this year. And yes, here & the sister site (click on the red Watch Episodes above the reviews) are the only sites to have this show.
On 24 October, all 10 episodes of the comedy-drama"Daybreak" stream on Netflix. It's kind of "Riverdale" meets "Mad Max" and "Z Nation". It stars Colin Ford ("Under the Dome"), other teens-over-20, and Matthew Broderick (Bueller... Ferris Bueller). The series is based on a graphic novel that regularly breaks the fourth wall--YOU are also a character. Amid all the teen series, maybe one that isn't so serious could be a nice change of pace.
Moore dislikes it, Gibbons is involved in it; Rotten Tomatoes gives it 93% critics, 51% users; some on IMDb found it brilliant, but many won't be watching another episode--so what is a fan of the comic/graphic novel "Watchmen" to do? One thing is to count the easter- egg references to the source, which will require a frame-by-frame look. Otherwise, deep analysis at this point is just inviting a headache. There's a lot of the ambiguity of Rorschach here: who's good and who's bad? Some people will see "strong black woman" Angela Abar/Sister Night and equate her with "good", but the law-and-order officer beats up suspects and hides her illegal guns (like Rorschach), while fighting against Rorschach-worshipping cultists. And the final scene suggests that any suppositions we have been making (probably based on OUR world) may be wrong. This world had a Richard Nixon go on to be a revered American President, followed by 30 years of the (repressive) Robert Redford administration, with forced race reparations (presumably by whites), forced depopulation of predominately white areas, and a retardation of technological advancement (where are the cellphones?). I hope that the series stays this complex and does not end up as yet another leftist, race-baiting propaganda piece--and that Moore is wrong.
@Kruciphix--CW OFFICIALLY announced 5 days ago that Season 3 will be back "summer 2020" . What I said 24 days ago ("July 2020") was based on a source that had info on the FILMING LICENSE/PERMIT. Another way to get early info is to watch the stars' social accounts. So???? (I'll be watching, too).
@RialASR--From thesun.co.uk on 18aug2019: "SIMON Cowell is giving The X Factor a huge makeover for 2019, having placed the regular edition on hold to focus on ... an All Stars and Celebrity edition instead." No Season 16 yet, just Season 1 of the new show.
Still few choices for high-quality .mp4 for Titans 207: the -Ntb source (at 1.09Gb in .mkv) is on verystream 1080p & 720p (both 428Mb) (@sswarlock) & vidoza (289 & 327Mb); none for onlystream yet. The -ION 10 source is on verystream 720p (at 414Mb) (@darkharvest). The -NoGRP on vidoza source is the "fattest" at 796Mb, but is only 360p. This is it for now; waiting for onlystream.
These low-quality streams are all there are this early. With verystream the choices are 59, 79, 194mb. The only 720p now are some vidoza links (like oldboy3's first), and they are buffering badly (even downloading is about 2-3 hours). The good news is that the show hasn't been broadcast yet, so maybe better links in a couple of hours.
