  1. Research! I remember doing research.
  2. Stop provoking me into making some effort. I cannot.
  3. Dunk was also a good answer to 5.
  4. Toad is a word with many meanings, at least one of which Robert B fits quite well. However, I admit that in my haste in the small windows of opportunity I misread the intention behind the punctuation. Cheers for the interesting game, everyone. These latter stages have come at an unfortunate time for me.
  5. Well, I had the right answer to 5 in prelims and changed it because I was certain I had the right answer to 6, which clearly fits Lyanna. How on earth can Quentyn be described as intimidating? Good theme, shame I had neither time nor desire to work it out.
  6. I think you will be doing better than me this round. I have had very little time and done no research. Plus my own clue is too easy.
  7. An updated list: BoJack Horseman S4 The Handmaid’s Tale S1 Black Mirror S3 The Expanse S2 American Gods S1 Orphan Black S5 Godless S1 Stranger Things S2 Mindhunter S1 The Americans S5 Better Call Saul S3 Narcos S3 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt S3 Fargo S3 Orange Is The New Black S4 House Of Cards S5 A Series Of Unfortunate Events S1 Game Of Thrones S7 The Defenders S1 Added Godless, Stranger Things, Mindhunter and Narcos. All good but not quite good enough to break into my top 6. BoJack is the runaway leader for me. S4 was something special. I've watched it through twice and actually appreciated just how great it is even more so 2nd time round. 2-6 are all quite interchangeable. All excellent and could be placed in any order really. The same possibly goes for 7-11. My positivity departs between 13 and 14. Although Fargo S3 had some great moments and enjoyable elements, it was way too messy and a disappointment after the wonders of S2, which would have topped my list comfortably that year. I also finally got round to watching Happy Valley S2, which was excellent if not quite on the same level as S1. I've not seen it mentioned on the forum at all but it is an outstanding show set in the town I grew up in. It's available on Netflix UK and I very very highly recommend it! Matthew "Neville Longbottom" Lewis has an incredibly creepy role in S2 that he pulls off quite well.
  8. Well, obviously!
  9. To be fair, it was a good clue. It was just unfortunate that it could be read very solidly in ways unintended. Clue-making can be a minefield.
  10. I was convinced the Bloodraven clue was about Dareon's death, with illegitimate cawing beautifully referencing his singing at the Happy Port, directly leading to his killing, which was a planned lure and slaughter. It was only after carefully going through my prelims (3 wrong, two of which I could tell were wrong so I focused on those first) that I started to question whether it might be referring to something else. I loved it as a clue about Dareon's death!
  11. The more pertinent question is surely; why do you find Arya so boring?
  12. Can you elaborate on the semi-canon sources? From a storytelling POV it makes no sense at all for it to be Howland.
  13. It's definitely a bear. There's always a bear. You can take this as my favourite, even if I find it makes no sense.
  14. Do some really think Howland was the Knight of the Laughing Tree? It was clearly Lyanna!
  15. Did it look like this?
