    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    Or people simply have different opinions than you. I don’t convince myself to like shows. I either like them or I don’t. That’s why I stopped watching shows like The Walking Dead, American Gods, Westworld, Better Call Saul, etc. If I felt like GOT’s quality has suffered, I would have stopped watching it too. But I didn’t, because it’s still amazing and my favorite television show.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    I never liked prophecy, and I only enjoy magic in spades, so I guess that’s why I liked it and you didn’t.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    A lot of people did love the episode, but a lot of people hated it as well, for various reasons. I happen to be in the former and loved it. I, personally, had no problem with the lighting, and I’ve never felt so stressed while watching an episode of any television show. I certainly understand the complaints, especially if you’re a Jon fan or if you expected the Night King to be the final antagonist. I did too, until I really thought about it. They had gathered the biggest army Westeros had ever seen, had armed that army with as much dragon glass and wight/White Walker killing weapons that they could find, and had two dragons at their disposal. Winterfell was the perfect place for the living to make their final stand. I’m not sure how a retreat would have worked without the dead catching up with them. It also doesn’t hurt that Arya is my favorite character.

    The Night King wasn’t defeated in a single episode. He has been in every season since season 4, and besides last night, has played a role in 4 big White Walker sequences.

    10! What an incredible episode! It may even beat out Winds of Winter as my favorite. My highlights: Arya killing the Night King! The deaths of Theon, Edd, Jorah, Beric, Lyanna, and Melisandre were all well earned Jon, Danerys, and Night King aerial battle Arya and Melisandre Arya, Beric, the Hound The Dothraki opening charge Jon vs. Ice Viserion The music Sansa and Tyrion Bran and Theon

    Why avoid a reunion between Sansa and Sandor?

    I’m sure they’ll come back to the show forum when/if Winds comes out just to point out how the show has failed the books.

    Why avoid a reunion between Sansa and Sandor?

    I don’t know where you’re getting this information, but season 6 was my second favorite season and season 7 was my fifth, ahead of seasons 3 and 5.

    Why avoid a reunion between Sansa and Sandor?

    Like fan fiction, plot hole is another term that this fandom regularly uses incorrectly. Sure, the show has flaws, like every other show, but they are few and far between. The positives of GOT far outweigh the negatives. Sure, you can call it horeshit, filler, crap and garbage. You even can call it fan fiction if you want, though I will still continue to correct you. I simply don’t agree with you’re opinion of the show. And I know popularity doesn’t automatically mean quality. Quality is subjective and depends on the individual. Season 5 did borrow several plots from AFFC/ADWD. It certainly contained more plots from the books than seasons 6 and 7, so I think it’s safe to say that faithfulness to the books has next to no bearing on the quality of the season. Season 5 was my least favorite season as well, but I still loved it and thought it was miles better than Feast and Dance. None of this has anything to do with my original point. You criticized D&D for thinking their writing was great, and I simply pointed out reasons as to why that was.

    Why avoid a reunion between Sansa and Sandor?

    Like I said, Martin called A Song of Ice and Fire unfilmable, and yet D&D still managed to transform it into the phenomenon it is today. They deserve every bit of the credit, as far as I’m concerned. And they haven’t had source material to work with the past few years, and yet everything I said before remains true. You may not like it, but you are in the vast minority, which brings me to my original point. Given that the show is an outstanding success, D&D have absolutely no reason to doubt their writing ability. GOT is a licensed adaptation. Fan fiction is unlicensed. That is the difference between the two.

    Why avoid a reunion between Sansa and Sandor?

    First of all, it’s an adaptation, not fan fiction. Second, why wouldn’t they think their writing is wonderful? They took material that Martin himself called unfilmable and turned it into the biggest television show in history. It’s received critical acclaim, shattered ratings and Emmy records, and has become a pop cultural phenomenon. Are they supposed to doubt their ability because of criticisms by a handful of posters on the internet?

    I don’t think you know what a shortcut is.

    It was definitely feasible. The Army of the Dead has been moving at a notoriously slow rate. They clearly aren’t in any hurry.

    There have been so many false leaks for season 8. What makes you think these leaks will be any different?

    Obviously, the show won’t spoil everything, but it probably has already spoiled some major plot points.

    Cersei didn’t send the Golden Company North. They’re still in King’s Landing.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Episode is not a measurement of time. Catelyn made if from Winterfell to King’s Landing in a single episode back in season 1, so I see no reason the Golden Company would be unable to do the same. That being said, I don’t think the Golden Company will be a part of the battle. I think this battle will deal exclusively with the White Walkers.

    Episode 2 preview

    I heard it as “he” not “you”

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 801?

    Agreed! Show Euron isn’t great, but at least D&D aren’t trying to turn him into a main antagonist, like Martin seems to be doing with Book Euron.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 801?

    I saw Sam telling Jon about his lineage as a continuation of him finding out about his father and brother. It didn’t seem rushed to me.

    Crow's Eye Storyline

    Show Euron doesn’t really have a storyline. His role is that of supporting antagonist. He’s on the show simply to be a henchman to Cersei.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 801?

    Gave it a 9! It’s tied for my favorite season premiere with Two Swords. The only thing I didn’t like was how easy Yara’s rescue went. My highlights: New opening credits Jon and Dany arriving at Winterfell Lyanna Mormont Jon and Arya Sansa and Tyrion Arya and the Hound Arya and Gendry Jon dragon riding Sam finding out about his father and brother Jon finding out about his parentage Last Hearth The Jaime/Bran stare down

    Quality is subjective. I like GOT because I believe it to be high quality. It’s that simple.
  23. Dragon in the North

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I never said GOT was flawless, but if I decided to only watch flawless shows, I would never turn on my television, as such a thing does not exist. I judge a show by seeing if the positives outweigh the negatives, and for GOT, that is most definitely the case. First of all, you have no idea why the general audience are attracted to this show, so don’t pretend that you do. Second, if achieving high viewership and becoming one of the most successful shows in history was so easy, everyone would do it.
  24. Dragon in the North

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I disagree. It’s my favorite television show, and the vast majority of the viewing audience love what D&D have done with it. It’s ok if you don’t agree, but you’re in the minority.

    No, the initial fight was very real. Their reconciliation happened off screen, which is one of my criticisms. Cat fighting is a sexist term used to describe an intense argument between two women. Apparently, women aren’t allowed to have that sort of thing, only men. By using the term, you are helping the spread of sexism. Stannis and Renly are the prime example. They’re argument was petty, and if they were both women, that would have been called cat fighting. Sansa and Danerys will essentially be having the same argument about who should be the rightful ruler of the North, but, unlike Stannis and Renly, you want them to hug it out. GOT is a very well constructed television show. There’s a reason it’s one of the most successful shows in history.
