  1. That' opinion. I of course disagree. And frankly all the things you mention hardly make her a villain. I honestly wonder if I'm just missing your sarcasm.
  2. Catelyn really is the most underrated character.
  3. Thanks guys. I don't know, I think it was meant as a parallel between the two situations but Jon does later mention those 63 wildings again in other contexts (such as 20 of them being spearwives) but I don't think they will all have the same fate. I then thought to check if the number had appeared again in the series and the only other time was in Daenerys' chapters: the 163 crucified children and masters. Granted, it's not exactly the same number ha!
  4. In back-to-back chapters: First, in Reek II, the ironmen in Moat Cailin surrender but are then executed by the Boltons/Freys: ''Along the rotting-plank road, wooden stakes were driven deep into the boggy ground; there the corpses festered, red and dripping. Sixty-three, he knew, there are sixty-three of them. One was short half an arm. Another had a parchment shoved between its teeth, its wax seal still unbroken''. Then in Jon V, the Watch gains the same amount of men from the wildings at Mole Town that surrendered and were allowed to stay in the south: ''By the time the last withered apple had been handed out, the wagons were crowded with wildlings, and they were sixty-three stronger than when the column had set out from Castle Black that morning. "What will you do with them?" Bowen Marsh asked Jon on the ride back up the kingsroad''.
  5. You know, I hadn't even considered the prequels in this equation.... But yeah I was just trying to sound optimistic; I was already thinking about what this situation might mean for Dream, if that ever comes out
  6. Still, if Fire and Blood 1 comes out this year then Winds could still come out too, after it.....but how likely is this in truth?
  7. You've GOT to be kidding me.........I hate this.
  8. You're right. Joffrey and co.'s illegitimacy is not recognized legally. Sorry. I guess I meant 'rightful', in that way.
  9. I first read the books in 2010 and then Dance when it came out, and I'm sure most of you started reading around this time too. I love the books and this story and it's been an amazing journey all these years. But is there anyone here who started reading the series in the 90s? Or even in the early 2000s, pre-Feast? It must be really interesting to follow such a long series for so many years. How is it been like? And how was it like back then?
  10. Every time I read the title of this thread I have a good chuckle.
  11. I think Stannis knows all of that but the thing is, legally, he has the best claim, cause he is legally the heir to the throne. However, due to a myriad of reasons, such as Roberts' kids' legitimacy not being widely known at first, Stannis not having many friends or allies or armies, or the fact that parts of the realm fell into conflict, he didn't have a big chance of winning the throne. Regardless of that, though, he is the heir, and in fact, he's still standing.
  12. Of course there's different degrees of good and bad lol, but I think ''badly-written'' covers the show's problems pretty well.
  13. Regarding some users' posts about this being subjective and/or the show still being enjoyable: Bad writing, or good writing for that matter, is not exactly a question of subjectivity. GOT being badly-written is not a question of subjectivity; it's pretty much a fact (same as ASOIAF being well-written). And if no one should say so, or analyse it, or reflect on it, then I guess critics and critical reviews of anything might as well not exist, not even by people on the internet. I don't watch the show but I have no doubt that's it's still enjoyable to some degree. And that's fine! It's just terribly-written. The two things can coexist but just because something's fun that doesn't mean it's not mediocre or bad. Otherwise popularity and financial success would necessarily indicate high quality, and that's not always the case.
  14. Nevermind
  15. This is definitely what happened. And they probably don't realize that the success of the show in the first place was due to the quality of the source material. It's true that the show is much more popular than the books but they only see that; for them it doesn't matter what the show is about, just that it created a decade-long phenomenon. Unfortunately they only see the dollar signs; it's nothing new. They once hired the guy who directed Jurassic World - someone who had no experience in doing a film like that by the way - just because it grossed a billion dollars, basically. And to direct episode IX! He's been fired since then cause his next film was a huge flop lol. But if that hadn't happened he would probably still be there.
