I think she acts appropriately for the series.  Tween Disney spy thriller isn't really a medium for "good" acting.  I think she has tons of charisma, and with a good director she'll be good in the role.

Zendaya is playing Mary Jane in Spider-Man: Homecoming

That's quite a bit bigger of a role than anyone expected.

I wouldn't call it the best TV show ever, but it was very good, bordering on excellent.  A few things bugged me.  The bully was too over-the-top.  The older sister Nancy - she over-acted in a lot of tense situations which pulled me out of the scenes.  But those are nitpicks.

I agree.  I watched it over the weekend.  Totally engrossing.  I just wish it were longer - those 8 episodes flew by too fast.

The reviews seem consistent in declaring the plot and script are garbage.  So that's evidence enough that I'll hate it.  No number of funny one-liners or glorious visuals can make me enjoy a film that fails at storytelling.

That petition is freakin' hilarious.

I think I'm the only one who wasn't bothered by Varys' quick trip.

No - but it's been explained:

Jon wouldn't be a legitimate, true-born Targaryen heir.  Bran is the legitimate heir to Winterfell.

If Rhaegar and Lyanna got married prior to his birth he would be.  There's precedent for Targaryens taking multiple wives, so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Wouldn't that wedding have to have been public for it to count?

Here's an explanation on why the timelines don't seem to make sense:

It's not intended to match up real time because doing so would hurt the narrative.

I can't see how Cersi's position could be any weaker.  The North is united behind Jon Snow.  Houses Martell and Tyrell have joined the Dothraki backing Daenerys.  What allies do the Lannisters have left?  The Freys, who just lost their lord and top heirs?  Cersi basically stands alone.  It'll be a short reign.

How the **** did Varys get from Dorne to the middle of the ocean on a ship so quickly?  You'd think he would just wait until Dany came ashore to meet up with her.

What I hear is that shot was when the fleet was setting sail after congregating in Dorne and picking up the Martell fleet.

SPOILERS!



Damn... Cersi is SAVAGE.  Holy epic victory.  I think I respect her now.

It's almost a shame Tommen had to be a wuss and ruin it for her.
