  1. What does Bran know?

    He might still be learning things and honing his greenseer skills with Bloodraven, who might think he's not ready yet to know *everything*. But soon ;)
  2. Which word in Westeros bothers you?

    Nuncle does annoy the hell out of me. I don't mind "coz", my cousin keeps calling me that :P
  3. Who is the Main character of ASOIAF?

    That and The Others. In the end, it all comes down to an Others invasion, Westeros's response to it and the changes that will occur after that, wether they win or loose.
  4. 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.

    Davos is the man, ser. It is so f**** known -_-
  6. [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
  7. Does Anyone else want a Robert's Rebellion Prequel?

    Good point, it's ironic indeed :) Never thought about that.... I think it's worthy of it's own topic, if you want to start one :)
  8. Stannis humor

    Today I was having lunch on a cafeteria while re-reading ASOS, and I come across Stannis' line to Selyse, after she starts fervently praising R'hllor: "Quiet now, woman! You're not in a nightfire!" I swear I really had to bite my lips not to start laughing out loud :P

    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

    I liked the episode, in terms of pace it was definitely an improvement from the last one :) as always, there's good and bad points: Good points Arya scenes (very well done) Pyke and the interaction between Theon and Balon. The scene between Cersei and Tyrion talking about their mother - it was like a punch in the stomach for me and I could even predict what Tyrion was going to say before he actually said it. Davos, Matthos and Saladoor Shan - really liked it and the guy who plays Matthos is really good, IMO. I still need more scenes to convince myself 100% that Liam is a good Davos, but I'm optimistic. Grenn, Sam and Dolorous Edd talking about women - priceless. Bad points Littlefinger's creepy peep show - completely pointless to me. Stannis and Mel sex scene - it was well done, but it's completely destroying my view of Stannis. I'll wait to see further explanations.
  13. How would you rate episode 201?

    It's too early to say it with 100% accuracy, but I think he's being portrayed as less pompous and self-entitled and more mean-like, cold-natured guy.
  14. How would you rate episode 201?

    I gave it a steady 7. Good episode with a few bad points. Littlefinger/Cersei scene was completely out-of-character for LF. He'd never defy anyone so openly. Some scenes felt too rushed. Cressen's story could be better handled. On the good points side, an huge bow down from my part to Carice van Houten, I really liked her as Melisandre. CGI wolfes were awesome. And (i cannot repeat this too many times) for the last scene with the bastards! Perfect image/score coordination!
