  1. Oh man the big showdown in Ep11 is EPIC.. Incredible stuff.. (..and for fans, there's at least one significant change from the original..) One to go.. but can't watch until later..
  2. Episode 13 - A Dance of Deception The maskerade ball begins, but complications (and terrible rolls) arise and the party must think on their feet..
  3. .. And 7, 8 and 9 were just as good.. Episode 7 'Scanbo' was everything I hoped.. Taking one of the craziest bits of the campaign and doing it justice.. Sam at his creative best and lets the comic relief shine in a different way..
  4. Episode 12 - Make It Fashion The group readies themselves for the ball while beginning to piece together a cryptic puzzle of criss-crossing threads of fate...
  5. Looks like we're at least two down for tonight (Nate and Kelsten/DocShark).. I do have some work to finish that is dragging on, so TBH I wouldn't mind skipping this week.. (EDIT: make that three)
  6. The comment wasn't but the scene is.. it's a 5 second throwaway gag.. you know exactly what's going on but you don't actually see anything..
  7. (eps 4, 5 and 6) Fans knew these adaptations were going to get dark and wow they delivered.. Ep 4 especially is a straight up horror show.. ..and the show has really found it's feet now.. You get lovely little character moments amid the absolute chaos that they find themselves walking into.. Pike.. The Sun Tree.. The undead giant.. (No Mercy) Percy.. and all the little easter eggs from bits of the campaign they probably wouldn't have got to, in particular..
  8. Just seen the opening two episodes and really enjoyed them - once it got past a bumpy first 10 minutes.. The trailer had a bit of a 'trying too hard to be edgy/adult' tone and the first third of ep 1 (which a lot of the trailer is from) heavily leans in on that - especially the bar scene. I know they're both trying to show the series is not for kids and that the characters were pretty selfish early on, but it goes a bit too hard on the 'hey look, we've got swearing/gore/nudity' front and it could be off-putting for some.. BUT! Thankfully, once the characters leave on their mission it picks up dramatically in every sense.. The characters are way more likeable and it feels less forced. The second episode I don't have much other than praise for, was a lot of fun - though this tale won't be as unfamiliar to longtime fans as was implied originally. I'm hoping this is the tone it maintains for the rest of the season though as it felt spot on to the games. The animation is definitely in the higher tier of made for TV stuff - especially recently.. It's not quite up there with the best of Korra etc, but generally it's very good for an American series. You also can really see where the budget went in the fight sequences and the creature they end up fighting really ends up feeling terrifyingly powerful as a result. Lastly there were some lovely little easter eggs for fans - especially in Gilmore's shop and the basement of the house they break into..

Five warriors are plucked from Exandria’s timeline and forced to fight in an alternate reality TV show -- Garyon Garrington’s Plunder Games. The last contestant standing will be awarded one use of the Wish spell. MEET THE CONTESTANTS! Anjali Bhimani as Fy’ra Rai from Exandria Unlimited Darin De Paul as Sprigg from Campaign 1: Vox Machina Will Friedle as Kashaw Vesh from Campaign 1: Vox Machina Sumalee Montano as Nila from Campaign 2: The Mighty Nein ND Stevenson as Tova from Campaign 1: Vox Machina & Honey Heist 3 It’s sure to be quite the adventure that will certainly go according to Sam (and Garyon’s) plan…
