    U.S. Politics: Attaquer son cul orange!

    That’s an Arrested Development quote, right?

    HBO to order pilot for a Dance of Dragons spin-off show

    I’m not sure why any of that will be an issue. Just because Danerys turned dark doesn’t mean that all Targaryens are like her, especially with the whole “gods flip a coin” saying. And the dragons were not depicted as dying easy. Viserion was killed by a powerful, supernatural being and Rhaegal was killed while severely injured in an ambush by a weapon that wouldn’t have been invented yet. I don’t think the show is going to have any problems, at least not regarding this.

    No, I have not, though I’ve heard great things. Six Feet Under is on my “To Watch” list.

    Arya had 3 close calls, but with death fake outs, I either have to actually believe them to be dead, or the show was really pushing the idea that they are dead. Besides, GOT did have two death fake outs with Jon and the Hound, but it’s not as troubling as it is with IZombie and other shows because they had already established early on that there were stakes. Still, I would have preferred if they avoided those death fake outs. And I only had one problem with the GOT finale, which is unusual for me. Finales are difficult to pull off, and I find myself more disappointed than not. To me, there has only been one perfect finale that I’ve seen, and that is The Shield.

    I liked the final season a lot, but I was disappointed with the finale, which dampened my view on it. IZombie spoilers:

    Do you like Feast and Dance?

    No, not really. People keep saying it’s better if you combine them or it’s better on a reread, but I can’t imagine that would change my opinion on the books. My main problems concern the filler, the plots that went nowhere, too much focus on new, uninteresting characters, lack of a proper climax, and my belief that those two books completely derailed the story and killed any chance Martin had at finishing.

    The most important book character that did´nt made it into the tv-show

    It’s impossible to say until Martin finishes the series, as all of the cut characters haven’t really done anything yet. As of now, I would say Aegon, but for all I know Martin could pull a Quentyn and kill him off early.

    Best and worst TV series finales, and where does GoT rank? *Spoilers*

    I thought “guilty pleasures” were things you liked, but that the majority of people didn’t like, so you were ashamed you like it. Maybe I’m wrong, though. Anyway, I don’t spend my time watching television shows I don’t like, but that’s just me.

    People only enjoy Twilight because they think it’s good, so it’s not laughable at all. There is no such thing as a perfect television show, so if the flaws of GOT stop it from being high quality, the flaws of Breaking Bad stop it from being high quality.

    Quality is subjective, so of course my love for the finale isn’t proof that it’s good. It’s just my opinion. As for your second point, why would you love something you thought was terrible? That makes no sense.

    1. Oh, I absolutely agree that the acting in The Americans was phenomenal and I was very happy when Matthew Rhys won his Emmy. I also believe that the acting in GOT is phenomenal, though I prefer the characters in the latter. 2. Quality is subjective. Always has been. Whether or not you believe a show to be high quality is completely up to you. 3. They showed us that Sansa was a highly competent Lady of Winterfell. I don’t think Danerys went mad. She fell victim to her own ego and became a delusional tyrant, the very thing she’s been fighting against. It was very poetic. She’s always had dark impulses in the past and her first instinct has always been to set things on fire, only her loyal advisers reigned her in. She ran out of loyal advisers. I understand why people think Tyrion has been incompetent, but I looked at it differently. Tyrion was losing the short game, it is true, but he was playing the long game. Tyrion was trying to end the war with the least amount of blood, so episode 5 wouldn’t happen. He wanted Danerys to be able to rule with love, rather than fear. Unfortunately, he failed, but I place the blame more on Danerys and Cersei. 4. When Bran dies, the Lord Paramounts of the 6 Kingdoms will get together to choose a new king. That’s what Tyrion said.
