comment How did Stannis neutralize the overwhelming superior head count of Mance Rayder's army?
Re: point 1: In the rock-paper-scissors of ancient battlefields, infantry beats cavalry. If your infantry have spears, they plant the butts of their spears firmly against the ground at an angle, and it will disrupt the heck out of any cavalry charge. It's bad for your mount's health to charge a formation like this, even if you're a knight with a lance and an armored horse.

comment Was the first season of Leverage shown out of order?
Interesting. The Two-Horse Job definitely feels right, tone-wise, at #3, but IMO after that nothing really jumps out as a good reason to rearrange the sequence.

comment Are more movie stars acting in TV shows nowadays (and if so, why)?
@Oliver_C: Jim Caviezel doidn't seem to have any trouble making a handful of movies over the past 4 years, during which time he's been a lead in Person of Interest, running 22-23 episodes per season.

comment When/Why did American television change from primarily episodic to primarily serialized?
It definitely started well before 24 and Lost and the advent of DVRs; I'd be more inclined to point to the huge success of The X-Files, Babylon 5 and Star Trek: Deep Space 9 back in the 90s, but there might be earlier examples too.

comment Why is J the only person who remembers K?
@saurabhj: The Men In Black series has always been a genre parody. (The second movie lost a lot of its funniness because it took things too far and crossed the line into self-parody, but that's another matter.) In a work of parody, half-baked plots and silliness are expected; they're part of the narrative structure.
