  1. I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you there. Sure, the show is successful, but that is not indicative of good story telling. Do you honestly think the show would be as popular as it is if they had a substantial smaller budget to work with? Would as many people tune in if there were no CGI dragons or battle scenes? If they didn't have amazingly elaborate sets, and beautiful locals to film their story at? A large majority of viewers tune in for the spectacle that is GoT, not because of the quality story. Would you say that movies like the Transformers are telling a good story, or programs like Jersey shore and the Kardashiawhatevers? All very popular and successful programs.
  2. Wow, atrociously corny and contrived writing. I would say that this show has officially jumped the shark, however that moment has long since passed. With this episode, d&d have officially jumped the Megalodon. As with many past episodes, I feel like this deserves a negative rating, however, having absolutely no expectations of seeing a quality program coming in, and feeling generous: +1 for the CGI; essentially a point for the budget, nothing to do with the show runners. +1 for Davos' retort to Tyrion when coming ashore KL. Tyrion: "Last time I was here I killed my father." Davos: "Last time I was here, you killed my son with wildfire." First time I was genuinely amused by a line in GoT in a long time. Gotta love that Davos. 2/10 ...and I'm shocked with myself that I rated it this high.
  3. ...You know nothing, Jon Snow Free Northman Reborn. A true man steals a woman from afar, t' strengthen the clan. Women who bed brothers or fathers or clan kin offend the gods, and are cursed with weak and sickly children. Even monsters." Quite frankly, I think what would be preferable, is for Jon to keep it in his pants while engaging in a relationship with any family members, regardless of the degree of relation.
  4. Not at all. I believe you may have missed the context of my original comment. Other posters were comparing the attitudes toward incest today, to the persecution of homosexuals in the past. Thus, my comment was referring to the views held in the past. With the knowledge we now have, I think it's fair to classify those past (or somewhat medevil) beliefs to be quite ignorant; whether they be religious beliefs, or just societal perceptions in general. I hope that clears up the misunderstanding.
  5. I'm sorry, but I stand by my comment. Any religion - or moral principles - that persecutes an individual as an evil sinner for "making the choice of being gay" and uses arguments to support these beliefs, such as "homosexuals are responsible for the spread of STDs", or "a gay man is more likely to molest children than a strait man" is in fact guilty of spreading propaganda to support their ignorant religious beliefs. My comment was in no way meant to be disrespectful to anyone. However, if you subscribe to, or support these types of views and beliefs, then I'm honestly not concerned with, nor would I acknowledge what you deem to be disrespectful to others.
  6. Love.
  7. ...unless you are a Baratheon conquering a Targaryn. That is when the rules change, then the conquerer has no rights whatsoever, and is deemed an usurping criminal. The bias, contradictions, and hypocrisy in your arguments are never ending.
  8. Wait, now I'm confused. Are you Bloodraven, or are you the guy skinchanging Bloodraven, and forcing him to skinchange everyone else? Either way, my Master of Whispers will track you down. Your fate is sealed, I have seen it in the flames; Your opposition to my rule has ensured that you shall be...dead as Ned.
  9. I haven't forgotten you, you are the biggest threat to my rule after all. It's just that I don't recognize your title or authority. Now, if this was the thread of procrastination, you might have a case. Here however, you are just another treasonous traitor attempting to steal what is rightfully mine. Unfortunately, and despite any respect and admiration I might have towards you, the path you have chosen leaves me with no other option but to declare you as an enemy of the state, and call for your arrest and execution.
  10. Ah, I should've known, it's always Bloodravens' fault. So I don't need to stop you all, I just have to take out some hundred and something year old albino with a tree growing through him, and my kingdom will be in peace. The future looks good. The Queen??? But I haven't even been betrothed yet! Who is this pretender wannabe you speak of? Off with her head!!
  11. The gods be mad!!! I take a little time to go chasing after one prized whiteheart...and what do I find upon my return? A thread in chaos, enveloped by a bunch of Gaemon Palehairs and Trystane Truefyres sprouting like noxious weeds. I guess my fun is over...duty calls. This thread must be torn up, root and stem and seed, lest new traitors sprout from every corner of the interweb.
  12. DP
  13. Or, say, to necessitate an army's ability to travel a couple of leagues, in a light snowfall. ...just saying. Heh heh.
  14. And what? Did BR fall asleep during the most crucial moment in his plan? Because if Cat had ran out to the library with Robb, Summer Bloodraven would have arrived too late, and Bran would be dead. Seems like quite the risky plan, just as is counting on Bran not dying from his fall.
  15. What? So in one thread you argue that Stannis is a rambling mad man that everyone in the realm hates, making absurd claims that he has no proof of, but then to suit your argument in this thread, all of a sudden you contradict that, and state that he has a reputation of honesty, and should be trying to convince that very faction - which he is currently at war with, and of whom consider him to be a traitor - of the situation beyond the wall. This makes no sense at all.
