    The first two episodes of S7 were quite good. Hope they'll get the show back on track. At the moment there is only one character I really care about:

    Carol? I liked her but she fucked with that kid so badly (Sam) that I was really mad at her after what happened to him. Because of her.

    Gotta watch S7E1 today. Yay!

    I've seen S1-5, haven't watched 6 yet. I thought S5 was much better than S2-4, which was nice.

    Anyone been watching the chess? Should be an exciting game twelve! I hope it doesn't go to rapid though, it feels much better to have the world championship decided under classical time controls.

    Man I love sport, (is chess a sport?) what channel is it on? For me it's up early for the start of the 4th test V India. Cricket, like the Wu-Tang sword, is like a game of chess, except I understand the rules!

    Silly me I see you posted that on November and even using the normal time constraints of chess I doubt very much it would progress at such a glacial pace!!

    Well back in the olden days the world chess championship would more than likely still be going now. The match could last for months with Kasparov and Karpov battering each other over the head with gruelling draw after gruelling draw. Now unfortunately no one can or will fund those type of matches and if it's not decided after 12 games at classical time controls the match goes into a rapid play off, where each player starts the game with 25 minutes on the clock, as opposed to the two and a half hours, with more time to be added after each player reaches move 40 of classical games.

    As you can imagine this generally means more mistakes are made and a winner is decided. And unfortunately this championship was decided in a rapid play off with Carlsen retaining his title.

    Oh and I watched it on the Internet. No idea if anyone televises it. There was a great program on the bbc in the 70s and I think early 80s which had grandmasters play against each other then overdub their thought process for each move as the game progressed. But in general live chess isn't great for TV.

    I like the sound of the overdub. The thought process of thinking so far ahead is insane. It would have to be better than Tyler wittering on about how good his Kali team is on YouTube. I guess these days chess and to a certain extent test match cricket are just to slow and not instant enough for folks in the 21st century.
