  1. More than likely this person is high or drunk and a stroke of "brilliance" no one else sees came to them, and they just can't figure out why no one else sees it. Not going to lie, I have done it too. Lol
  2. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I've never really thought this before until my most recent re-watch. But that is the vibe I get after re-watchi g Season 7.
  3. Seriously. Not sure my last post was deleted (perhaps the wrong forum). But Jon learned his lesson with Ygrette. He did what he had to do to protect the North and fullfil the oath he took to defend against "all enemies foreign and domestic" - er, I mean protect "the realms of men". He played hard to get, she fell for it, and he took advantage of it. She has dragons, ya know. Thus the tragedy of RLJ. A sad song, but it needed to be sung.
  4. Did I see a bearded Mushroom banging on some drums?
  5. I haven't played the game Civilization for a while so I started a new campaign. And I could not help but hear some strikingly similar tunes in the game to Game of Thrones. Has anyone else noticed that? Sean Bean does "narrate" the game.
  6. Somebody sees hate under every rock and behind every bush. Maybe they should stick to playing with Legos and coloring books.
  7. I didn't like how they explained everything in a minute of diologue (several times). I would rather have seen it and heard it. Surely they can create a season-finale climax/resolution/next step without rushing it along like they are. Almost like they either know Fire and Blood 2 will be out soon, or they know they will outpace the George and aren't willing to play Patty Cake about it.
  8. I only read the first 3 pages and didn't see this addressed, but what was in the chest from the opening battle scene?
  9. I loved the episode. Although, without having read Fire and Blood, I would have trouble remembering names. That may grow, considering they have a lot of gaps to fill. But one thing I did notice was a lack of continuity. For example, Daemon had the favor on his jousting spear at one point, and just a few seconds later in the next shot it was not there. Small details like that are what bother me, but I understand that it happens (kind of like water bottles spotted during filming of Game of Thrones) But I can be overly critical when watching a movie or show. At work, it is common for coworkers to warn others regarding my take on them. "Don't listen to Travis. He didn't like John Wick." Lol
  10. Jon is the King. But he is a man of the Night's Watch. He did his duty. He will learn the truth about Bran and unite the realm to take him down.
  11. I'm sorry to not have read the thread (there was only 4 comments when I went to work at 5 am). But I literally spit my drink out when he said "Seven Hell's Bells" instead of "Seven Hells".
  12. I read today a theory that the show could be set FAR in the future (~200 years) because Jon Snow is, or could be, immortal. Or, if he's not immortal, he could age very slowly... And he could be killed off at the end of the 1st season (if he isn't immortal) just like Ned Stark, to give way to the new cast of characters.
  13. Gunpowder wasn't great, but I enjoyed watching it.
  14. But like he said, it "is hard, guys." *Can't figure the font, etc out
  15. I actually giggled when I read this Not a Blog. And I agree with @Black Crow
  16. My dad absolutely loved the show. He wanted to live to see the end of the show. Sadly he passed away from cancer a few months before the final season aired. But as he had never read the books, I am sure he would have loved it. He loved for me to fill in the gaps since I had read the books, but sometimes it was just too different than what was on screen and it confused him at times.
  17. I will be. With a show like this, based on the material we have, they have to make some changes to make it work for TV. I'm okay with that. What D and D did with Game of Thrones, they did not have to do that. They could have easily gotten 2-3 more seasons out of it. They made HUGE mistakes by not including Lady Stoneheart, fAegon, killing off Barristan, and some other stuff that should have remained faithful to the text.
