So what I've done is watch the two seasons (ie. first two books), then picked up the second book. Here was my thinking: I'm already too far ahead of the events in the first book to want to read that, but don't know if reading the third book will spoi ...more

“Don’t cry, Booboo. Remember the flag only halfway up the pole?
Booboo, there are two ways to lower a flag to half-mast. Are you
listening? Because no shit I really have to sleep here in a second. So

“If he had not been a small degree civilized, he very probably would not have troubled himself with boots at all; but then, if he had not been still a savage, he never would have dreamt of getting under the bed to put them on.”
Herman Melville
