  1. Bumping for TWOW V4

    Wow that's far back. I find genealogy pretty intersting. Cool that you know so much about you ancestors. No one ever bothered to do the research in my family, but I would be really interested in knowing who my ancestors were.
  2. Bumping for TWOW V4

    Nice I don't really know where my ancestors come from. I'm not Belgian myself, I'm German. I'm just staying here for my internship. My knowledge about the country is limited as well. I know a bit about them, because they are our neighbours, but I don't know who the prime minister is for example. Actually, I don't really have contact with the locals, because all the people at our office are Germans.

    @Orphalesion Sounds right to me. I spend most of the visit sightseeing and visited several museums. The even have a comic museum here in Brussels We are back to rainy times though.

    Cool idea. I lik your username BTW I like bastards from the North, well except for Ramsay. Wheather is still good, but today was one of those days where every minute felt like an hour and I barely got anything done. I should have worked on the application for my master's degree in the evening, but instead I was just browsing through this board
  5. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    From an WiC net article about SXSW. Benioff talking about the Stark sisters:http://winteriscoming.net/2017/03/15/sxsw-roundup-missed-game-thrones-panel/ Technically the are only confirming what we already know, but I'm really mad right now.
  6. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    @Arliss: Yes, most of us are aware of the fact that there are constraints due to the budget, screentime, etc. and that some changes are necessary due to television being a different medium. No one is saying that the show should hve included all 3000 something characters from the books or that the show should have included each scene from the books. Having said that I think (and I believe many of the others here will agree) that the show could have done things differently with the same budget and the same screentime. Actually, I think the showrunners aren't using the screentime very well. Here are just a few examples of how they could have done stuff differently with the same budget and the same screentime: The show spend hours on showing female nudity. Especially in the earlier seaons. If I'm not mistaken the total of these scenes amounts to the lenght of several episodes. Apart from being sexist, most of them add nothing in terms of worldbuilding, character or story development. Cut them and you can include some scenes that are missing from the books. Cut stuff like the nearly 4 minute long beetle speech or Tyrion's cock jokes and use them better. Again the show can't include all characters from the books, but still we spend hours of screentime with invented characters, some of whom were very unpopular with the show-only audience as well. The fact that Lady Stoneheart is missing, isn't the only reason why I found D&D's stament that they miss Michelle Fairley pretty ironic. They underused her very much in Seasons 2 and 3. In the books Catelyn is the POV character with the 5th highest number of chapters, despite the fact that she had no chapters in AFFC and ADWD. On the show she has less screen time than characters like Talisa and Shae in Season 2 and 3 respectively. You don't have to add overall screentime to give more to Catelyn. Just cut brothel scenes or cut screentime from Shae and Talisa who shouldn't have that much. The showrunners could have cut 2 of the 3 Sandsnakes who are only minor characters in the books and they could have cut Trystane who doesn't appear on page in the books could be cut as well give us Arianne instead of these characters. Would I still thinks that the show sucks if I hadn't read the books? Well I'm not gonna lie of course the fact that I've read the books has influenced my opinion of the show and I've only been unsullied in Season 1. Having said that GoT already fails on it own terms when I don't compare it to the books. Furthermore, when I criticise the show on it's own terms I complain about the same stuff that I would complain with any other TV show or movie. Edit: I wholly agree with what the orhers have said. Back in Season 2 there were some changes I didn't like and where I think they could have done things differently. However, my overall opinion of the show was still extremely positive. Like the others have said for me Season 5 and 6 were bad on their own merrits and by the time I watched I had forgotten a lot of stuff that happens in the books.

    Really nice weather today and it was allowed to go from my internship half an hour earlier

    Shit. I hope your kids get better soon. Just saw about the snowstorm in TV. I don't know what's going on it has been sunny for about four days in a row here. Before we had rain nearly every day four 8 weeks, but I'm not gonna complain.
  9. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    So D&D had a pannel at SXSW didn't listen to it, but apparently they said these things: Like we didn't already know that, but at least they confirmed it. I'm not sure which Lannisters they love though since they haven't adapted Tyrion, Cersei, Jaime, Myrcella and Tommen properly. From EW http://ew.com/tv/2017/03/12/game-of-thrones-sxsw/ Not funny It's not like you didn't have the opportunity to bring her back
  10. Bumping for TWOW V4

    I has gotten really sunny here and I had enough stuff to work on Friday. Spend yesterday with sightseeing and it was really nice
  11. Am I The Only One Around Here Who V.2

    I don't know maybe. I'm currently thinking that I won't watch Seasons 7 & 8. Maybe I'll change my mind about that, but right now I have zero desire to watch them. Am I the only one around here who really liked Show!Cersei before Episode 6.10? She was kinf of my favourite character on the show and I found her really interesting even though she wasn't Book!Cersei.
  12. Am I The Only One Around Here Who V.2

    Not quite. I love LotR. I have watched the movies a couple of times and always enjoy watching them again. I have only read the books once and I was 12 back then, so I can't judge how good the movies are as an adaptation. I don't like Tyrion. I find his chapters interesting, because somw interesting stuff usually happens in them. I also find his charactet interesting, but I don't like him. I hated Star Wars II the first time I watched it, but I'm not a fan of romance in general. Especially not cheesy romance. I found Star Wars I and III okay though not good when I first watched them, but my opinion of them has grown a lot worse over the years. I haven't watched them in quite a while. I really like the idea of the hero becoming a villain and I think the movies had some ideas that could have made them good if they had been written better. Am I the only one around here who is not gonna watch the teaser for season 7? I read what happens in it and it sounds like it's very similar to the teasers of other seasons.

    Hope your migraine has gotten better. I had a really boring day at the office. They had no work for me like no work at all. I spend 5 of my 8 hours reading newspaper articles oline, texting people and in the end reading all kinds of stuff about celebreties, because I was just so bored. I could have just stayed at home and done some actually important stuff like working on the applications for my Master's degree.
  14. Bumping for TWOW V4

    And we are back to rain again. A lot of rain. For every nice day we probably have five rainy days here.
