I use actually way too much.

"Oh crap! Now we've gotta put everything back the way it was, lest we upset the core audience by changing up the formula!"
I got that feeling too.  I was looking forward to things being a little different.

We enjoyed the Brother Cadfael books.  They would be fun to listen to.

Isn't Enver Gjokaj amazing?  It was so fun watching him as Topher.

I love the new sig.   :D

I dont really do hulu much because only a few of the shows have closed captioning

I also stopped watching most Fox shows because the captioning gets all screwed up on almost all of the shows.

I think pretty much everything I watch on hulu has captions, though sometimes it takes them a few days to get them up.

Card, to me, is very uneven.  He has moments of sheer brilliance, but his series always seem to fizzle out.  Perhaps he should just write stand-alones.

Well, people do try to torture Miles, but he thwarts them by quoting the entire text of Richard III.

I always loved that part.  (From Brothers in Arms).   ;D

From The Warrior's Apprentice--there's that bit with Bothari and the pilot.  Ergh.

The things that Mark goes through in Mirror Dance kind of overshadowed my experience of the book the first time through.  When I went back to it later I realized how short that section really is.  And not very graphic, at that.... I think it's more the description of the psychological effects.

The Vorkosigan series is excellent (my very favorite series, in fact) but it does have a few things that may make it unsuitable for the OP's requirements.  (There's that almost-rape scene in Shards of Honor.)  Not graphic.  I would probably recommend it to my mom, but not my twelve-year-old nephew.  Yet.

The date?


p. 123:  copiously unattended by either the bride or groom--I suppose this might make sense, but is it maybe supposed to be conspicuously?

I also remember something like "barely downhill," or perhaps "barely down a hill," that I thought might be barreling, but now I can't find it.

That's ridiculous.

I do know that Blish wrote his own Harry Mudd story which was published along with the two episodes.  I'm not aware of any un-filmed scripts that he worked with.

I wouldn't say they were about sex to that extent.  Still pretty dark.

Didn't he pull it more than once?
(The horse, that is.)  I remember the one time, when I was there, but I sort of vaguely recall that there was another time too.  Possibly a different horse.

I was at a stables where a horse pulled the fire alarm once.
