  1. WorldCon Helsinki 2017 -- Planning!

    Me and my boyfriend (AllMenMustRhyme) will be there. We want to stay close to other BwBers, so wether we book a hotel room or find people to share an Airbnb place with is up to all of you, I guess can't wait!!!! It will be great to see you all again (after Worldcon London 2014) or, in some cases, meet you for the first time!

    It's all so quiet... ssssh...shhh...
  6. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child being Published as a Book

    It's a good thing that they're doing, since almost all fans can't afford to go to London to watch a play. I wish it was a proper story instead of just a script, but I'll count my blessings
  7. Good YA series recs?

    I would recommend the Unwind Dystology by Neil Shusterman. It was one of the best YA I've ever read, and it raised many pertinent questions about lack of responsibility and boundaries.

    I'm the ghost of Spring past!
  9. That's right, we're going to Helsinki
  10. How would you rate episode 209?

    This was brilliant. Simply brilliant. This is HOW you adapt book scenes to TV! And Lena Heady stole the show. They were all brilliant, but she... no words, absolutely no words.

  12. [Book Spoilers] EP 209 Discussion

    NOW THIS IS WHAT I CALL AN EPISODE!!! That wildfire explosion was something! My jaw just dropped and fell and rolled on the floor and I took my time to pick it up... Beautiful!!! Money very well spent :thumbsup: Stannis grin, all the (few) Davos moments, every Tyrion scene, Cersei's story to Tommen (fucking amazing, I got the chills and teary eyes when she was speaking)... I'm totally speechless! And I loved the last scene when Loras was using Renly's armour (of course they wouldn't waste an actor for Garlan when they could to this)... and Bronn and the men singing the Reynes of Castamere was really nice, I say! Excellent episode all the way! :D :D :D

    Good points: - Catelyn's exchange with Karstark. Also her scene with Jaime near the end - and people had doubts about Michelle Fairley!!! That is some great acting right there, she is Catelyn. - Theon presenting the corpses - even if it's a bit derailed from the books, it just instigated a huge wave of hate inside me (which is precisely what the scene is about). The soundtrack complimented it very well. Also, props to Donald Sumpter in his portrayal of Maester Luwin :) - Sansa's scenes - very well handled :) Bad points: -Bran&co merrily walking around - why oh gods why??? They'd be caught in a split second. Also, unless there's an unexpected turn of events, I really think they're setting up Dagmer and Ramsey to be one and the same person....

    Count me among those who didn't get the general criticism of this episode. I thought it was much better than the previous one, to be honest! Best parts: Sack of Winterfell - 2 minutes into the episode and I was already teary-eyed. Theon killing Ser Rodrik instead of the servant (can't remember now who was) to pay "the iron price" was not a bad change. I get that in the book, it may have a special meaning that even a lowborn man would get Theon schooled ("Lord Stark always took care of his own deaths" or something like this), but being directly responsible for Ser Rodrik's beheading probably has more impact in Theon's psyque. In addition, props to Master Luwin/Donald Sumpter :D The riot at King's Landing - loved it, truly well-directed IMO. Great acting by both Jack Gleeson and Peter Dinklage. Also, Joff slap :devil: Jaqen's face when Arya tells him to hurry the f**** up - priceless. I honestly laughed out loud! NW scenes - those Icelandic landscapes are simply incredible. The girl who plays Ygritte was some spot-on casting IMO. As for Dany getting her dragons stolen.... oh well this is TV. I prefer they'd stick a bit more to the book plot, but i understand besides the HotU, her storyarch is kinda slow and boring in this book. They had to give her something to do and something for the viewers to be interested about. All in all a good episode :) EDIT - About the letter - probably it was Roose? Although the best cover for Talysa would be mock-telling Robb she's a spy, in order for him not to think so...

    Ok, very late to the party but my internet is crap for streaming. Anyway, let's get to the point: I found this episode to be very weak comparing with the previous one. Not just because IMO ep. 4 was the best of the bunch and put me all over the emotion spectrum, but also due to faults of its own: Renly's death - I know that they must simplify everything to the core for tv-viewers-only, but c'mon, seriously??? It was lame having the shadow actually stabbing his heart. It could have been handled in some other way explicit enough for non-book-readers to understand, but without all this cliche-cheesyness. Plus, in my point of view, the way the portrayed the scene, with Renly removing his armour instead of donning it, diminished and weakened what made this scene so powerful - which was the fact that even strong, fully armored men were no match for the Lord of the Light and his power. Loras's reaction - my second "c'mon" yelled at my laptop screen in less than 2 minutes (never a good thing). Call me nitpicky, but young, reckless, "live fast die young" Loras would never have such a "cold", rational approach to Renly's death. The way it was depicted in the books seemed more believable. And since in the show they brought up Renly-Loras relationship more explicity than the books ever did, I really think there was no need to change this aftermath. Bran's "sea in Winterfell" dream - I get that they needed to introduce it in some way, but I really hope this doesn't mean the Reeds will be written off. This being said, I really liked the interactions between Arya and Tywin, the Qarth scenes (that Qaithe's mask was simply awesome and nothing like I've picture it!), and the actress who plays Brienne grows on me more with each episode! Also good to see Littlefinger talking and acting like Littlefinger for once. EDITED for spelling
