  1. In six seasons very little has been said , in Westeros, about big events in Essos, now a massive invasion is bearing down and few if any seem to know about it. This needs development and elaboration.
  2. One maybe has to match the character with the story. Which actors will be in season 7? Contracts for season 7? Way back, (before season 5?), I am not going looking for it, just off the top of my head, I fuzzily recall a few 'tier' contracts for season7.(One might say the 'tier' classification is a bit obscure.) Off the top of my head: A tier - Kit, Peter, Lena, Emilia, and Nikolaj. B tier – Dormer#, Turner, Williams and 'others'. Never saw ‘Others’ spelled out. ‘Others’: I don't remember seeing confirmation of the group below for season 7, tho it was implied (I know I am missing a few.)Even tho, it seemed, at the time, most if not all would be:(Just listing the actors.)Gwendoline ChristieIain GlenRory McCann*John BradleyConleth HillJerome Flynn**Hannah MurrayNathalie EmmanuelLiam CunninghamCarice van HoutenBen CromptonJacob AndersonEllie KendrickTom Wlaschiha***Liam CunninghamCarice van HoutenIndira Varma (et al.) Daniel Portman Alfie Allen Gemma WhelanIsaac Hempstead Wright Anton Lesser Aidan Gillen**** Kristofer Hivju Diana Rigg Pilou Asbæk - maybe more screen time season 7? #Natalie Dormer … even book wise it’s hard to tell where Margaery’s story was going, apparently Natalie may have asked for an ‘out’ due to the pressures of other work she is doing. *One would like to know if actors like Rory are secretly told to keep dates on their calendar clear?(Thinking here,also, of Tobias Menzies , Richard Dormer , Joseph Mawle or Paul Kaye , seems they are told nothing, but them like others willfit in set time if needed.)** Bronn has lasted longer than I expected.*** S7 left Jaqen enigmatic, he seemed approving of Arya’s development … seems to play a future role. ?? **** LF seems pushed in the background in S5 and S6. S7 Possibilities are:Ben HawkeyJoe Dempsie!! Michiel Huisman(Does Daario return in season 8?) Mark Gatiss (I don’t think the story is finished with the Iron Bank) Laura Pradelska wondered if Quaithe shows up again?
  3. Is it profitable ?

    Have to see how Westworld does on HBO , but from what has gone on with that I have my doubts, in any case cannot see it doing this well. One thing, Time-Warner owns HBO and I am sure Warner is always looking for possible movies , would not be surprised to see Warner dip into the Song of Ice and Fire universe for film material. And of course HBO may have to spin off related mini series, series? HBO does not seem to have anything on the horizon that is as profitable.
  4. The Future of Game of Thrones

    That is interesting , well they never hit 540 minutes. , tho they came close with season 4. On the other hand they never came close to 600 minutes, and I don't know why.
  5. Blu-ray and DVD Details Released

    I don't know why HBO's biz model didn't take that into account, like 10 years ago.
  6. Is it profitable ?

    In six years the international figure for DVD sales has never been revealed , but then , as far as I know international viewing number is still unknown , except for a few UK and a few European ones, and those we have not seen since the early days. There is also merchandising , I don't remember seeing a number for that ever, and that's picked on in recent years.
  7. Is it profitable ?

    It is intriguing , HBO had a big bust with Vinyl , and Westworld has had a very bumpy ride , it should have aired around the end of 2015. If Westworld craters HBO is hurting.
  8. Game of Thrones Filming This Summer

    Will be interesting to see if HBO or the show runners mention something about the episode lengths.
  9. The Future of Game of Thrones

    I do wonder at the length of episodes for a shorter season. Benioff once said , long time back they had shoot for 540 min. as season, I think they always go over, but they also never hit 600 min. either. I don't really know why. HBO , after all, has variable time slots since they show movies of variable length. As things stand right now one would think money is no problem for the production since HBO may have no other big hit programming for next year!
  10. Can't Believe They Spoiled That! *SPOILERS*

    What if it doesn't happen until Dream of Spring?
  11. Can't Believe They Spoiled That! *SPOILERS*

    We only know, as of now, two things corroborated by George. From the books we know there are a lot of disjoint (from the page) stories , some of the show must 'shadow' the book story, but we do have the case of Sansa's story , show wise, is totally disjoint from the books. It is possible her story in the books will merge with the show but as of right now it is a totally different story.
  12. Is Jon + Dany Vs Whitewalkers too cliche to happen?

    Man I'm thinking this is as a major unspoiler , not from the books, and unless there is further development on the show kind of a shaggy dog story right now.
  13. So is Jon the Lord of Winterfell as well?

    Is there a Warden of the North now? After all Ramsay was not sanctioned by the crown after his father died. Or does it matter any more?
  14. I would like to see a logical development of things in Kings Landing. The Crown has usurped the succession without any input from it's vassals , totally broken with the either the most powerful house in Westeros or the 2nd most powerful house. House Arryn and House Tyrell should call the houses and their banners together talk to Jamie and say there will be no support for the Crown unless a proper succession is put in place. This could lead to a war but the Lannisters would be outnumbered , and logically unsupported by anyone. Of course none of this may happen when the invasion fleet arrives. It would be in everyone's interest then to just dispose Cersei , accept Dany , provisionally and avoid bloodshed. Of course if southern Westeros would come to their senses and start fearing an invasion from North of the Wall all would start to make sense. LF would just be moot at that point. Logic does not always prevail on the show.
  15. How important is little Sam?

    What's weird is that baby Sam was Mance's in the books which kind of had a significance but he's Craster's on the show , if he grew up to be like his biological father he wold be just a jerk.
