  1. Deadpool 2: Cross Universe Casting

    A release date has been announced. Deadpool 2 will be released June 1, 2018.
  2. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    Jaime's arc in AFFC was one of the few parts of the book that I enjoyed reading, until I reached the burning of the letter. I liked that Jaime's relationship with Cersei had started to be chipped away piece by piece, but I felt the ultimate break was unearned. Jaime abandoned Cersei when her life was in danger because she cheated on him, which, though terrible, doesn't warrant the death penalty, unlike some of her more serious offenses. I hope that the show follows the chipping away of the relationship like in the books but that the ultimate break is done a little better.
  3. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    I only skimmed the leaks, so I'm hardly an expert, but I don't see how them being together could confirm anything. It's only natural that they would have scenes together.
  4. What is your all-time favorite chacter in GOT (book or TV)?

    Arya Stannis The Hound Jaime Theon
  5. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Genocide is the deliberate extermination of a national, racial, political, or social group. The bolded is why Cersei blowing up the Sept of Baelor cannot be considered a genocide. She wasn't targeting a particular group of people out of racial hate. She just wanted to get away with her crimes.
  6. Question for show watchers and book readers.

    Yoren Thorne Oberyn Stannis Cersei
  7. So did Shireen's sacrifice postpone winter or not?

    Maybe. It's been a while since I've seen the season 5 finale. You may be on to something, but it's possible the decreased snow may also be due to the lingering effects of Shireen's sacrifice.
  8. So did Shireen's sacrifice postpone winter or not?

    No, people have not been duped, tricked, or otherwise bamboozled into watching the show. People like the show because they genuinely believe it to be good. You don't have to agree with this opinion, but you should, at the very least, respect it. I don't believe that is asking for too much. Thank you.
  9. So did Shireen's sacrifice postpone winter or not?

    Of course the show has a plot. It's, more or less, the same as the book's plot. When a king dies, powerful families fight over his throne while ignoring the approaching threat to the North.
  10. So did Shireen's sacrifice postpone winter or not?

    I think Shireen's sacrifice only dealt with the pre-winter snow storm that had Stannis's army trapped. Whether or not it delayed the arrival of winter isn't brought up in the show.
  11. Discussion about Dorne.

    Yes, Dorne was bad. It's even worse than the storyline in the books, which I wouldn't have thought was possible, but it does have one advantage over Book Dorne: it was short. The showrunners knew to cut their losses, so Dorne only made up a fraction of the showtime. I don't understand why people continue to dwell on it.
  12. What would you change about the show?

    Look at my response to Cas Stark. Throwing criticisms at the show without giving details or examples isn't going tot cut it. And yes, I admit there are flaws, and I never said I don't care. I focus more on the positive aspects of a show than the negative ones. If the negatives begin to overshadow the positives and dampen my enjoyment of the show, then that's when I stop seeing it as high quality. You continue to overlook one of my arguments, which is that every show has flaws. If flaws and imperfections stop GOT from being high quality, then no show should be considered high quality. If you're not prepared to properly support your argument with examples from the show, then why bother making your arguments in the first place? Right now, you're asking me to take you at your word, but that's not how discussions work. You need to make me believe you and accept your side of the argument, but you're not even attempting to do that. As for the bolded, of course you can judge the show based on any criteria you want. That's the whole point of my argument. Quality is subjective. If you want to hate the show because of Dorne or for any other reason, that's your prerogative and I will always respect that. After you tried to assert that it was a fact that GOT was a bad show, I was simply using critics and award voters to show that if it was such a fact, these professionals would have picked up on it. You then proceeded to try and discredit them, but you failed.
  13. What would you change about the show?

    But you didn't provide any reasons or facts. You provided vague criticisms without going into any detail or giving examples. I could throw those criticisms at any other show, but without the evidence to support it, I'd be wasting my time.
  14. What would you change about the show?

    Again, that is your opinion, not shared by everyone. You may hate show Euron, but I know people who love him. Neither of you is right, neither of you is wrong, because quality is subjective.
  15. What would you change about the show?

    What facts? You haven't used facts to support your arguments, you've used theories. Theories without providing proof to support them. Did you expect me to take your word for it? That's not how this works. If you want me to take your theories seriously, you need to provide indisputable facts to defend your case. I'm trying to have an open minded discussion with you, but you're not giving me anything to work with, only an analogy about shoes. I asked specifically what you mean by the fundamentals of good storytelling and how GOT fails to meet these fundamentals, but all you said was to look at the criticisms made at the show from one forum. This was a lazy response, especially considering I've admitted the show has flaws, but so do every other show. If these flaws keep GOT from being high quality, then no show can be considered high quality.
