  1. What would you change about the show?

    My reasons and facts are in dozens if not hundreds of posts on the rant and rave and show episode threads. As are those of other show critics. I am not going to relitigate here Stannis being in walking distance from Winterfell, which only took Sansa/Brienne a couple of days to get to the Wall from WF, or the abject illogic of Sansa/Ramsay, Arya and the Hound announcing their true identities at the Vale and then walking away, Dorne or any of the other plot holes, logic fails and continuity lapses, because I've been there, done that. There is always an excuse, as I said, a non filmed back story, or some reason why these failures are explained away. PS to Darkstream: I also liked Daario I better, Daario II is a better actor but so blah, another white guy with brown hair like everyone else on the show. I thought the Euron casting was really poor and had actually thought it was so underwhelming they would recast him as they have done so many, many times before.
  2. What would you change about the show?

    Then why bother to ask for reasons or facts if the response is that it's opinion. I think that it IS a fact that the show has been poorly plotted and full of continuity errors, but if you try hard enough you can create some rationale for it, even if said rationale isn't in the show, LOL.
  3. What would you change about the show?

    The show has been VERY poorly plotted since parts of season 4.....where characters actions do not make sense within the story the show has been telling....there are huge continuity issues in terms of sometimes basic things that apologists have to do create huge, intricate back stories in order to justify. I would also say the casting itself has dropped in quality, the guy playing Euron is awful and hugely miscast.
  4. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    If the Hound doesn't go North and LF dies as the leaks say he will....then I'm not sure how she is going to find out about his season 1 treachery? Is Bran going to see it in a vision? LOL.
  5. US Politics: Ask Fox News

    I agree. I still think this is madness what they are doing with ACA. As one of the few people who actually uses the ACA exchanges, I would say they suck generally and are expensive if you aren't hovering right around poverty level. But, a GOP version that is as bad or worse is incomprehensible after 8 years of complaining about it. LOL
  6. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    If she had two brain cells to rub together she would have had LF executed already and wouldn't need anyone to tell her how shady and evil LF is.
  7. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    Why not? Dany had a vision of her son, but he was never born. Mel consistently misinterprets actual visions of the future. And if Cersei beats the last part of the prophecy why would that nullify any of the previous story? Since we've already seen people be wrong about visions and prophecies. He's damned if he does or doesn't If she is strangled by the valonqar then people will complain her story has been spoiled since Feast, and now you say if she finds a way to beat the prophecy, that also spoils her story since Feast.
  8. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    Probably, but the revelations about what happens in Winds have given me a different take than what I used to have on the author being a gardener...I used to think it meant he wrote where the story took him, but I lately think it also means that he gets an idea for something--Tyrion is a secret Targ, House Dayne, whatever--and he throws some stuff in there to leave his options open. He could do it, or not do it, whatever it is....meaning we're going to find out at the end, if there is an end, there were a lot of false clues. So, Cersei being already doomed by the prophecy seems like a done deal, she has done everything all along to make it come true by her own actions, so the valonqar seems inevitable. Maybe it isn't. I don't know anymore and don't care that much anymore either. But, yes the show will give her an epic death if it comes, and it won't come until probably one of the last 3? episodes of the show.
  9. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    Yes, but I now think it's possible Cersei will be alive at the end. It would certainly end the complaints that the prophecy took all the suspense out of her story if she doesn't end up dead by the hand of the valonqar.
  10. why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Stoneheart has long divided the fan base, some love her, some thought it was a bad idea on the author's part. I think the simple answer is that D/D fall in the second category, they didn't think he should have brought Cat back, so they left it out. But, it's all a moot point, since Stoneheart is out, I presume there is no one left who still thinks she will show up, LOL. We don't know what the author will do with her, probably nothing. So, there it is. The end.
  11. why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    It would have been a huge shocking moment, if they included Stoneheart, which the show loves. And she could have been involved in several gruesome death scenes, which the show also loves.
  12. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    I think they are probably 80% accurate, the leaks are supported by photos from the shoots. Leaker is missing some things and doesn't seem to have everything covered, but I think Arya/Freys, true; Arya/Sansa conflict, true; LF dies, true; Wight hunt, true; Jon/Dany hook up/wall falls, true; Rhaegar/Lyanna flashback, true. I'm probably forgetting some of the leaks, oh yeah, Cersei miscarriage, true, couple sand snakes killed, true.
  13. why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Sorry, you don't make sense to me. Brienne and Jamie would have had something else to do if Stoneheart was cast, they would have been in that plotline, which as I keep saying can be WHATEVER the show wants. They, themselves, said they almost left Dorne out entirely, so obviously, it's not necessary to the end. I don't care if she was in or out, I only am saying that these detailed rationales for why she "needed" to be out are like more fan fiction. She was out for the same reason Arianne is out, and Val is out, and why Sansa married Ramsay Bolton...because this is what the show wanted to do. It is not believable that they could not have created a story for her, regardless as to what happens in the books, because as I have been told so many times, the books and show are different.
  14. why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    I guess I don't get your point. The show's history of cutting/adding/changing plots, inventing new plots and new characters makes it crystal clear to me that they keep what they want and change what they want. They could have done all kinds of things, including Lady Stoneheart, which would have had whatever impact or non impact on the plot as they wanted. There is no reason of space, time or plot except that the showrunners didn't want to do Stoneheart. Stoneheart could go to Winterfell and save Sansa if they wanted. She could kill LF. She could do anything they want her to do, even if it isn't going to be in the alleged future book story that may or not ever appear in print. You can't even say that LSH makes Jon not dying too obvious, since they already had Beric and it was already obvious he wasn't going to stay dead.
  15. why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    A very good case could be made that a riverlands series of segments with Brienne, Jamie, Blackfish, BWB and Stoneheart would have been a better use of everyone's time than Dorne and that Brienne was not necessary to the Sansa in Winterfell plot.
  16. why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    They brought the Blackfish back just to have his own men kill him. And Osha to be killed. Ros got a lot of screen time for someone who was a show creation and added nothing to the plot except for one scene. They introduced Doran only to kill him off. So, it's absolutely accurate that they could have put in LSH if they wanted to, and could have changed her story or done her story the way the books will or done whatever they wanted to in expanding it. The rationale is: they didn't want to.
  17. why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    The simple answer is they cut Stoneheart because they wanted to. Since they have made up many plot lines and characters if they wanted LSH they could have invented anything they wanted for her, like they did for Ramsay, and Marg and the rest.
  18. Endgame roles for all major characters (TV only)

    The story is already far, far beyond LOTR in terms of tragedy, even if not one single other major character dies, which is very unlikely.
  19. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    His most recent blog post that mentions Winds is from yesterday. That seems like news to me.
  20. I lost my cat....inside the apartment

    I still think you should ask your landlord to take $$ off your rent for labor and supplies. Now I see you are in PA, and I can't imagine it's legal to rent a unit full of ceiling holes big enough for a cat to get through, unless the place is in the midst of a renovation or something.
  21. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    Thanks. That's interesting, I hadn't seen the exchange.
  22. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    Based on that last post, where he lists what appears to be the order of things he is most excited about and involved in at present, spending most time on the Santa Fe soundstage/studio and Wild Cards, and expresses no excitement about Winds, indeed, he has not expressed anything I would really call excitement about the upcoming book in a long time, at least in comments I have seen...... I am moving my prediction forward to 2018 or 2019.
  23. I lost my cat....inside the apartment

    LOL, did I not tell you that the cat would end up in the ceiling if you didn't close up the holes. I don't know what your situation is with the landlord.....or even what country you live in, but pretty sure an apartment that has holes that lead to the attic is probably some kind of code violation. If you like the space you probably don't want to report him...but you could either mention that someone told you it was a code violation, hint, hint, or you could offer to do the work yourself and have him take it off the rent. But, holes in the ceiling to my mind should not be existing in a rental unit. At this point, you might want to keep him in a room, if one exists where he can't get out anywhere so he has more freedome of movment, he's not going to be too thrilled to stay in the carrier for too long but was probably exhausted from his ceiling adventures. Keep us posted!!!!!
  24. The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    I noticed that as well. A long list of activities he's excited about and engaged in and looking forward to working on. Then, Winds of Winter as the last item. That speaks volumes.
  25. Just finished season 1...

    I still think 1 is the best, followed by 2, 3 & 4 running about even, then 6, then 5 as the worst.
