  1. Questions you'd ask D&D

    Going into season 5 all hands were seasoned, so why such a bungle with Dorne? Why the failure of imagination when it came to regiggering the Dorne story? Why the Bums Rush in getting rid of Doran? A short piece of awkward visual narrative not a signature of the show.
  2. Questions you'd ask D&D

    If Westworld can have all episodes that are 59 to 60 min. long why hasn't that been true for GoT all along?
  3. Questions you'd ask D&D

    Why was it in season 6 that Art Parkinson had not one single word of dialog?
  4. Questions you'd ask D&D

    To me there is more Jamie and Cersei in the books than the show.
  5. Season 7&8 theory *Spoilers from TV&books*

    That seems true. Of the two we got this season the first was tacit since GRRM has implied it was true, D&D have only given two explicit ones. (That is ones due to GRRM.) I don't know if Jon Snow's parentage is also consider another tacit reveal ... since that still has some mystery around it. That there is a showdown with the Others is more kind of a deduction from a ton of foreboding book evidence , if George has something else happen I will be cow kicked. (There might , in fact, be many spoilers that D&D know that will never be used on the show.)
  6. Season 7&8 theory *Spoilers from TV&books*

    Not sure how any of this meshes with the books going forward. , I think we have only THREE verified spoilers from the books by way of the show one from season 5 and two from season 6. The broad strokes may be being followed but the show is now an alternate universe based on the book's 'alternate universe'. Only thing we know is that S8 will land on a big show down with the White(Others)Walkers-whatever.
  7. At this late date there is still no real answer to this mystery. Sibel Kekilli did give an interview , in the last few months, I can't find it again, her answer seems to be that she was just visiting the set. Unless some one knows different.
  8. HBO Confirms Eighth Season as Last

    As an aside, seems , years ago now, there were some posters here who denied , vehemently, there would never be an 8th season, but I don't know if they are still posting on the forums any more.
  9. HBO Confirms Eighth Season as Last

    If I remember correctly GRRM signed a contract with HBO(?) to develop 'something' for them, but he seems to have mentioned it was not ASOIAF related. Have heard nothing (no surprise) about this for a long long time now.
  10. HBO Confirms Eighth Season as Last

    HBO still has not confirmed how many episodes in season 8. (It is known what D&D say, but that's not from HBO, yet.)
  11. HBO Confirms Eighth Season as Last

    I don't think Westworld is going to take up the slack in HBO's schedule , I know for one I don't watch Leftovers even tho it is ok. I think the idea of keeping a share , if not most of the GoT viewers would be a spin off. I don't really see D&D doing it , tho maybe as executive producers , pass show running to Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill?
  12. It is a good question about who is the Lannister's allies now? With Highgarten and Vale, whoever is left in the North against them, Dorne about to invade , not to mention an overwhelming force from Essos, logically, their goose is cooked. In fact Jamie should independently sue for peace and declare the Crown mood. At this point even the Stormlands should be in revolt.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
