I think it's done on purpose because Malazan is ultimately about the world itself and the ideas/history within it. However, this means that most characters are going to just be there and quite a few are rather boring tbh.

But, I'm glad I got into it. I would have never met my cinnamon roll, Itkovian, if I haven't.

You mean the Imp, not the dead human he's on, correct? not sure I see it, you mean the legs are too long/big?

No, the human guy.  To me it looks like from where his knee bends to what I imagine the length of his thigh should be doesn't leave room for his hips/rest of his abdomen.  Again, maybe that is just me though...

You might be right - there is something off about the human, I struck it up to he's dead and when you're dead, you kinda collapse and flail, nothing keeping you upright and tight. Like sitting in that position doesn't look right or comfortable, but when dead, contortions can be more pronounced before rigor. But I'm no expert, my thinking there may be well off. Could be his scale is off.

A denizen of Earwa?

I dig it.  Perhaps it is an illusion of the perspective, but his lower half seems disproportionate to the upper.  It might be one of those things where the real scale looks less real than an exaggerated one though...

but he could have stated it in fewer words.

lmao. Yeah the whole series would be summed up in this manner I think. You're getting to the point where this really starts becoming apparent. Getting lost in the weeds as every minor character getting 50 pages of exposition, and novel-length side stories that don't progress the story. 1000 pages+ in each book, and half of it is relevant.

Still great, but if like most people you want your story to be ... well a story, with a start, middle, and ending, among other things (like a central cast of characters) ... it can get tedious.

Letterkenny.

This shit is hilarious. Like if the shows Seinfeld and Archer had a baby and raised it in some hick town in Canada. So its a show about nothing, with lightning fast banter and surprisingly clever writing, wrapped up in a friendly down where everyone knows everyone.

Its set in Letterkenny, population 5000, middle-of-nowhere Canada. The banter is top notch, the characters are fun. Its a bit repetitive at times, but engaging enough that I was disappointed when I found out hulu only carried the first 2 (of 5) seasons. Great stuff.

Oh, I did. And yea, he's obviously critical of capitalism, which is perfect for me, but he could have stated it in fewer words.

Yeah, my wife has been watching this, I should jump in at some point.

Just make sure you watch from the beginning and get caught up, or nothing will make much sense.  The 3rd season has been good, but the first two are definitely a little better.
