  1. US Politics: 50 shades of Scalia

    I just wonder if Trump is the nominee if they'll continue to fight so hard.
  2. US Politics: 50 shades of Scalia

    A bunch of other issues really just means politics, does it not? Let's not pretend that the Senate has any concerns over the nominee or about Obama, they're holding on for the off chance that Cruz will get to make the nomination. Nothing more.
  3. Anyone else like Bran POVS?

    I have always loved Bran and in ADwD I thoguth his chapters were particularly beautifully written and my favorite pieces of prose from the entire series.  I can understand that people think he is boring because he takes away from the main narrative (that's exactly what I think about Dany) but I have always loved Bran's character and where his story seems to be going in addition to the fact that I think some of Martin's best prose style is reserved for those chapters. 
  4. Fate of Jon Snow might differ from Books

    Carice did say she wasn't sure if she would be back next year, which I never understood and still don't understand. She was never in danger, but was she just trying to hype the battle?
  5. Fate of Jon Snow might differ from Books

    I just wonder if people who think Jon is really dead either understand what makes storytelling good or if they think David and Dan (and George) suck that badly.

    Also, I should add: I think the producers are getting exactly what they wanted. Book fans have long decided that Jon isn't really dead, so how can they make it so even the book fans are questioning their convictions? Be so heavy handed with the "Jon Snow is dead" talk. And that's exactly what is happening.
  7. Fate of Jon Snow might differ from Books

    It would just be such shitty writing, on the part of Martin and of the producers to kill Jon now. I think the whole "Jon Snow is dead" talk is similar to the "The Hound is dead" from the books. He's dead, it doesn't mean he won't be brought back to life.

    I think it seems foolish for Kit to lie to the press too, but why would they be so forthcoming about that information? They could have left it burning in people's minds for months and draw a huge audience to see if Jon is really dead...or you can have an interview released as soon as the episode airs and tell everyone. Nope really really dead. That just seems way too heavy handed. If they are straight up lying, that's just low on their part. But my bet is there will be some technicality to what he said.
  9. [Poll] How would you rate episode 510?

    I gave it a 9. It was a solid episode. All those 1's seem to be from people who are butthurt about "fan fiction" or Stannis. Stannis isn't really dead, and blame GRRM because he doesn't write fast enough. The episode itself had a lot of jumping around but it gave us good ending points for all of our characters and didn't feel rushed or too long or whatever. It was a good episode.

    I can't help but wonder whats going to happen in King's Landing now. Why did they make the decision to have Varys not kill Kevan and keep him alive to share rule with Cersei?

    Yeah, there's no doubt in my mind that Olly will still be stabbing Jon. The whole Sam "sometimes you have do to things that others don't think is right" speech was not changing Olly's mind, but pushing him further to deciding to help stop Jon.
  12. Best and Worst casting choices.

    For a long time for me Sophie Turner was awful. I hated her, I thought she was dull and flat and she just was not an actress that could act without great dialogue or some action (Seasons 1 and 2 I remember thinking she just looked so expressionless, you couldn't feel pain or happiness even when you should have been able to). But I think she's come a long way and she's now capable of performing great scenes without having to say anything, which is the mark, imo, of someone who is great.
  13. Best and Worst casting choices.

    Agreed, Natalie Dormer brought Margaery to life for me in a way I don't think any other actress could. She's been perfect at the subtle manipulation and attacks on Cersei. For me she has been the greatest adaptation from book-to-screen.

    fwiw, I hated it too because I thought it was boring and Dany didn't come to any important discoveries from her rule. But the one major scene she seems to have had was at the end - and that either means she'll just start killing and burning shit in Meereen or Westeros. Either way, I'm not sure if it sets her up as your traditional savior.

    You may be right, but Dany had the revelation at the end of the book that she cannot win over people by planting trees, she needs to use fire and blood and I don't think that was for naught. If it was, then that's poor writing on Martin's part - to have Dany go through this scene where she's crawling with dysentery or something and seemingly dying and comes to, what seems to be, a major personal revelation - and then...nothing?
