    [Spoilers] EP707 Discussion

    Well spotted, I too noticed that, perhaps some Zombies are scared of or below other Zombies, sort of like a class system based on who their creator is, Night King is way more badass than qyburn and Gregor feels it!

    [Spoilers] EP707 Discussion

    We still have no idea whatsoever what the Nights King actually wants. What are his motivations, it seems he has no free will at all as he seems to see the future and then just act out his part in it. He does not need to feed his army so why does he need to go SOUTH, what is his endgame? I actually pondered for a minute whether Cersei or Tyrion somehow end up being The Knight King, because he is tall I could see Tyrion choosing him and Cersei would love to be him or it, I mean the Night King may actually be the Nights Queen. I am not presenting this as a theory, I'm saying that the show has devolved into such a Jump the Shark Deus eX Machina show that anything is possible. Cersei even having power or being Queen is not plausible because the people of Kings Landing hate her and what BannerMan would reall still support her. Why does her so called Army stay loyal to her when every other Army seems to be duplicitous, but not Cerseis. The bloody Nothern Lords change with the wind, but the Lannister soldiers are always totally solid for her, even after seeing the Dragons, Dothraki and Unsullied in this episode. The show is now a cartoon, with dialogue aimed at prepubescent males!,
  3. You have to wonder what the hell the GoldenCompany are doing in Essos at the moment, who is paying them, what is keeping them together all trained and ready for war FFS. Cersei should not be queen, that Gold from HighGarden should be the only thing Euron wants from her, unless he is really the father of whatever Abomination she is currently carrying! And the Nights King has been waiting for a Viserion all along! Does he see the future and if he does why is he bothering to invade Westeros if he is going to be defeated and if he is going to win then he has certainly been patient waiting all that time just for Viserion. FFS if nobody ever went North of the wall to stop him he would not even have an army, the job of the Nights Watch should have been to bring Wildlings south all along not stop them! The Nights Watch has been aiding and abetting the Nights king all along!

    I cannot even!!! Bran is letting the team down badly, the Nights King has been waiting for his dragon to be delivered for 7seasons. Perhaps the entire show is from his perspective!

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 706?

    Oh come on Darkstream, if you can manage to not use any of your Critical faculties at all, and like to see more sharks jumped than a Sharknado movie then this episode was awesome. However, If you like characters dialogue and actions to make any sense at all, as well as a coherent plot, then this episode is probably not even worth rating! Ahh, that's what you said, basically.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 706?

    And??? Video games are also pretty awesome now compared to the 80s! Yeah the action and special effects are outstanding and some people rate that and give high scores. Some people want plot progression and logic and realistic fights and stories, even in a fantasy show so they mark lower, I find this season highly entertaining and visually stunning to watch. I'm relieved or intrigued to see characters converge that I have been waiting for for 6 years but that does not earn it a 10 for me, and so I rate it or score it accordingly.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 706?

    Goodness me..?? I never thought I'd see the day. The dragon chains were unbelievable, as was the Night King not only having absolutely no fear of dragons, being an absolute demon Javelin thrower, and the fact that the ice Spear was a lot more powerful than dragon blood,scale, fire and magic, but oh well. Viserion dying so easily was just the 58th shark that needed jumping for the episode to conclude. I gave it a 4, but I admit that I watched it and Enjoy some aspects of it enough to keep me watching and somehow enjoying it. I have to suspend my disbelief and forget about the previous seasons, and drop my expectations that it will ever deserve its seasons 1 and 2 quality and standards

    I think that not only can they not write but they do not care anymore and if you Combine with this with the arrogance that they frequently exhibit then you have the perfect storm that has destroyed everything that was good about the show and washed away the debris!

    The scene in season 6with Sansa discussing herself being sold to the Boltons by LF with Littlefinger himself was so pathetic, awkward, senseless, illogical and badly written, acted and with such pointless, bland dialogue that I found myself feeling the urge to hide under a table to avoid it! Possibly the best 4th wall example of television in television history (really meta)! 2 Characters revisiting a momentously bad decision that caused untold butterfly effect problems a year after they made the decision together and they still had no idea why they sold Sansa to the murderers and usurpers of her family to be used as a womb and a sex slave and they still had no idea why they did it or how they possibly hoped to beneffit from it (I AM STARING RIGHT AT YOU D&D). It was so ridiculous that I have to cover my eyes and yell nonsense if it ever manages to appear on a screen near me again! Blah blah bla blah

    EXACTLY!!!. I strongly agree with all of this, unfortunately not only are D$D hacks they are smartarses with little conscience and less respect for the audience than they have for the source material that made their career. The source material that every time they move away from makes them look like clueless amateurs that things make sense too creatively if they want it to happen! I really resent the fact that of all the possible showrunners in the world that may have found themselves in the position to adapt AsoiaF to television it fell to these 2 immature frat boys. It could have been wondrous, as it was in seasons 1-3 when they appeared to use the books as a guide, but no they had to let their Ids and their Egos take over and present us with such unforgettable characters as Talisa and Olly and super cartoon Ramsay villain and even illogical High Sparrow, aaghhh the horror, the horror!

    I find the White Dragon concept absolutely stupid and illogical, and I seriously hope it does not come to pass, which means it's likely a certainty

    Hey I just listened to the podcast that you provided the link to and I thought it was excellent as it covers a lot of what we talk about in this thread! Actually some of it was so damn relevant I started to wonder if a regular contributor to this thread is one of the presenters, Will sounds a lot like a regular Ranter.

    But we needed screen time for Olly, and Tyrions cock jokes that he "drinks and knows" and the finger anal rape scene and we needed the hounds new friends slaughtered by the people that protect the small folk in the books. When D$D pack 40 mins of show into 60 min weekly allotments then we obviously have no time for politics or true feudal inheritance practices FFS!
  14. Just wondering how you are, have not seen you post or Rant lately?

    If GoT was fair Dinkum then season 7 would open with Cersei in the black Cells awaiting trial for blowing up Baelors Sept and the Tyrell and Lannister armies would be at war for control of KL, but alas D$D have destroyed any semblance of the politics, or primogeniture or Kinslaying or basically anything that originally attratcted me to the show so apparently Cersei gets to be queen with 1 week old hairdo that the faith gave her" its Weisserhoff for gods sake so anything goes!

    That's all the DumbleDork$ have, tropes and shocks and tits and dragons, it's the D$D way, it's straight out of the only book that D$D have actually read by themselves, Adaptations for Dummies!

    I'm pretty sure he was.
  18. I actually believe that Randyll Tarly would love it if Sam stood up to him, like the Greatjon with Robb Stark in the show. Sam left for the nights watch and he's returning home with a wife and kids (of a style), Randyll most likely knows that the nights watchmen are not supposed to do this and he still welcomed him home. My take on this is Randlyll was majorly surprised by this rebellious behaviour of Sams and that he wanted to take a measure of what was going on. Randyll might have thought "My cowardly boy has achieved the near impossible and seems to be still held in high esteem by the watch" and imo Randyll would love it if when he talked down to Sam the metamorphosis was complete and Sam stood up and told his dad to back up and pull his head in and watch his mouth about and around Gilly. I believe that if Sam had done this Randyll would have been proud of him and impressed but Sam still failed to man up when he had the chance! Instead he snuck around like a mouse and stole the sword that he could maybe have earned by demonstrating the courage and strength Sam had shown us over the seasons 2-5, but yet again that scene was a waste, it could have been so much better! D$D could have wrote an awesome scene depicting Sam's new spirit and bravery that he has learnt in his journey but yet again characters act like they did 4 years ago. Gilly had to step in which is even more embarrassing because Gillys father makes Sams dad look like father of the century , and yet she has to defend Sam. It's absurd and add to this that he even let his father demean and insult Gilly, who Sam says he would die for, it just gets worse and worse the more I think of it, the Scene had so much potential and it could not have been portrayed worse than it was!
  19. I agree, Sam stole heartsbane, I do not think it brave, because he did it slyly, when nobody was watching, literally a thief in the night. Watching Sam at dinner was terrible, I was disgusted by his lack of courage, with his character regression. Sam was at the fist when the WWs struck and despite this he is still terrified of his father??! I call bullshit!! Man up Sam, stand up for youself and tell your father and the rest that WWs are real and are coming for Westeros, or F--k off! Watching that scene was horrible, Sam was supposed to have changed, to have seen the hiorror and to have found courage, but he acted like a scared little boy, I was so disappointed in him and the scene!

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    I found the show so much more palatable when the wights acted like wights. It was more nuanced, more poignant when they were creepy and looked like dead people with perhaps one mortal injury that has been reanimated (undead) , not like skeletons with Spider-Man abilities and terminator strengths. When they acted and looked like dead humans with slightly less than human strengths it just seemed so much more realistic (as odd as that sounds) but seeing them as dead humans with blue eyes that were still almost human made them seem a lot more chilling and spooky to me,. Yet again D$D chose to go down the cheesy cake road!

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    I too am conflicted and disappointed by the 3 eyed Ravens death, it feels way way too soon and like he has bought little knowledge to Bran. All that work to get there just to view the Stark kids playing and be a prop in Hodors story. It felt way too rushed and I remember thinking Is that it?! Also the Arya scene was stupid, more fart jokes again and then a dick and then a dick joke, lame. Now we come to Euron the kin and kingslaying two eyed villain, and he comes to power by literally A DICK JOKE, I mean seriously? For the old gods and they're gods sake, Euron pulls out 3 dick jokes after acknowledging regicide and kindlaying and becomes kingIs that the best D$D can do, I really wanted more and I am blown away by the decline in quality of GoT, I gave it a 3

    [Spoilers] EP602

    Brilliant, and sadly so true, unfortunately you are totally correct, the show that used to be good when they copied what they saw in the books is not what it used to be. And somehow I suspect that they will never hit the heights again unless they could somehow kidnap the author and force him at knifepoint to write the episodes for them again, maybe they could get super Ramsay sue to do it for them, he is super evil villainy enough to pull it off!
