  1. They can argue until they are blue in the face that this is so they can make the show the best it can be but the truth is HBO put all its eggs in one basket and have to stretch this out until they can bring their other ASOIF series into production around 2021.
  2. Which was very good by the way, got me thinking. Would Kit Harrington produce a show where his character dies at the end if that was also the fate that awaited another character he is famous for portraying? Or am I just reading into to it my own hopes and expectations.
  3. Isn't HBO owned by Warner Brothers? Weird.
  4. Maybe they should of gone the same way as American Horror Story, same cast but completely new scenario each season? (set in the 80's of course) Oh well. I plan to watch both seasons again over the Christmas fortnight I'm sure I'll appreciate the second series more on second viewing and a tummy full of junk food. Pet theory. Season 3 will have ten episodes, season 4 eleven.
  5. So I guess I'm the only one (so far) to express disappointment in the second series? It felt lacklustre to me, struggling to find it's path from one off show to four season project. I mean where can they go with this that will still involve all the cast? They should of had the bravery to just move beyond the kids and town from season one and take Eleven and Hopper into the greater world. If they keep with the same characters each season will just be a sequel to a sequel - or maybe that will be the conceit of it? I don't know. I liked, it but it wasn't the great of season one. It's like Ash V the Evil Dead. The second series stank as a retread of the first where as they could easily of had Ash V the Zombies of ...... or Ash V the Witches Coven of ...... or Ash V the Vampire Bikers from ....... etc etc etc. Disappointment is my prediction for the Game Of Thrones follow ups as well. I am a pessimistic bunny.
  6. Well that left me feeling melancholic. Not just for how it ended but for my youth. I was in my twenties when this show first aired. Over all I thought it was fab, its laconic pacing just adding to the vibe of the show. A friend of mine reminded me to re watch Fire Walk with Me before starting on the return - that was rewarding to see how a film that just vexed everybody back when it was originally released now suddenly had new importance to the over arch of the show. Episode 17 really had me going that this was going to end on a relatively positive note like Blue Velvet. (I was even expecting a fake Robin.) But that would not of been right the show was after all about abuse and the covering up and pretending not to see about such vile crimes.
  7. To go a bit tin foily, maybe it wasn't ice fire, but a sound wave (visualised for artistic purposes) Dragon scream the equivalent of Joramuns horn?
  8. In Book 5(?) Stannis horses come unstuck in the harsh winter of the north. Even the north mens shaggy horses ultimately struggle as winters grip grows, so how well will the Dothrakis horses do in the north? What use are they without their horses?
  9. I think it's interesting that they hit Eastwatch. Hug the coast avoid Winterfell all together. Then Again looking at a map of Westeros Kings Landing is a long way away. Unless he's heading for the Gods Eye.
  10. Isn't more reasonable to suggest Arya still had the knife because after she handed it to Sansa, Sansa put it down and left the bedroom. Aryas bedroom.
  11. Maybe they'll substitute Jon Connington with Aurane Waters? (Name only)
  12. Doesn't Ghost come and go as he pleases in the books? And the wolves in the books have a sense of each other regardless of distance. Maybe he's aware of Nymeria and her wolf pack and is on his own mission to recruit them to fight the long night.
  13. If there is a baby it will be a girl. She will named after the mother Dany never knew, then again triplets! The dragon has three heads.
  14. Seriously doubt it will be two years. November - December 2018 is where my money is.
  15. Definitely a case of shock-o-rama. Saw dragons and zombies at work today. They're going to have quite the story to tell down at the ale houses.
