    Rant and Rave Thread

    You wait for ever for that date with that awesome some one and then they do or say some thing that make you go ugh. Dragon riding Ugh. Really! and apparently the Riverlands have vanished with out a trace. Bronn and his tit fest. Hey show runners here's an idea, Bronn is playing dice and winning with a bunch of Lanister soldiers. Their morose lamments about lost friends and colleagues is putting a downer on his game. Scene would of played better. Well I've got another five dates with this show, I hope they don't start to do the equivalent of flossing at the table.

    Winter & the Dothraki

    In Book 5(?) Stannis horses come unstuck in the harsh winter of the north. Even the north mens shaggy horses ultimately struggle as winters grip grows, so how well will the Dothrakis horses do in the north? What use are they without their horses?

    The Walking Dead: Because Season Ate Nine (Comic Spoiler Thread)

    So I heard Carl Grimes got chomped because the actress who plays Maggie wanted more money and the shows budget didn't have it (all that Zombie makeup doesn't come cheap) so the kid had to go to give her a pay bump. Personally I'd of let maggie go.

    The Witcher on Netflix.

    The New Legends of Monkey. Have you had a look? Now I'm thinking that's quality and effort we'll be getting for the witcher. Set phasers for disappointment.

    Hey Dr. Who

    I was having a chat with a buddy about David Bradley performance as William Hartnells doctor and the conversation turned to who could play the other early doctors and I thought Aidan Gillen as Patrick Troughton and Sean Bean as Jon Pertwee - but who could play Tom Bakers doctor? Stumped both of us. Any Ideas?

    I guess this is what happens when people fall under the spell of svengalies and cults.

    HBO Confirms 2019 for Final Season

    They can argue until they are blue in the face that this is so they can make the show the best it can be but the truth is HBO put all its eggs in one basket and have to stretch this out until they can bring their other ASOIF series into production around 2021.

    Twin Peaks - Double R Diner Now Open!

    Well that left me feeling melancholic. Not just for how it ended but for my youth. I was in my twenties when this show first aired. Over all I thought it was fab, its laconic pacing just adding to the vibe of the show. A friend of mine reminded me to re watch Fire Walk with Me before starting on the return - that was rewarding to see how a film that just vexed everybody back when it was originally released now suddenly had new importance to the over arch of the show. Episode 17 really had me going that this was going to end on a relatively positive note like Blue Velvet. (I was even expecting a fake Robin.) But that would not of been right the show was after all about abuse and the covering up and pretending not to see about such vile crimes.

    Night King appreciation thread

    He's the doomsday machine. I can't remember the name of the starship in Star Trek the blew up to stop it. His core is a magical piece of obsidian. How to knock it out? He's fully armoured can defend him self, probably impervious to dragon fire. Maybe they need a COF to whisper some spell. A spell Bran can go spy on in the past?

    Night King appreciation thread

    But what is that? Having the biggest army of the undead? He's got to have agenda. Personally I still feel he serves a faction of the children of the forrest. Otherwise the others are just a MacGuffin and that would suck.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 707?

    I really wish tv shows would just stop it with the cliff hangar endings. It used to be a way to tempt the audience back for the Autumn line up. This show is beyond the rating system yet they just can't let that particular gimmick go. Didn't give a wit for Littlefingers demise - hopefully in the books it will have more reason to it as we get a final explanation to his misdeeds. Jon and Dany hooking up via a booty call was just not sexy or romantic. Rhaegar and Lyanna flash back deserved to be longer, and why was Tyrion lurking? No way they are finishing this in another six episodes. I got a bad feeling next season will lead into a movie spin off. Just don't see it finishing in six more episodes. 8.5 out of 10. Jon Snow (Knock knock.) "Hey. You up?"

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 706?

    I have to give this 10 for the tragic end of that fine dragon that was just so wrenching, how it closed its eyes as it sadly slipped beneath the water. I'm even prepared to ignore the nonsense going on at Winterfell because of that. I was so convinced Tormund was also going to check out - but at the last minute saved by Sandor! It was interesting how Tormund basicaly told Jon to bend the knee. Excluding the Winterfell subplot (& now that I think of it the Benjen ex machina) this episode in my opinion was on a par with any of the episodes from the first 3 seasons. Gosh! who'd thought a dragon dying would be so provocative. Ned Stark, Red Wedding, Shireen, Viserion. Valerian steel dagger - body armour made of dragon glass. A leap from one dragon to kill an ice dragon? ...... Future possibilities.........:) On another note. I would love to see Ghost take an immediate shine to Dany in the next season, I'm like 95% convinced that will be a scene in season 8. The same way as in the books Ghost likes Val because Jon likes Val. (Maybe that's why Drogon liked Jon because Dany liked him rather than his blood line?)

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 705?

    "Well. If I don't come back you won't have to worry about the king in the north any more." Not much to say about this episode. it was mostly just establishing the events for the next episode - well apart from prince Ragger setting aside his marriage for another. Still I give it a 8. Again only some 57 minutes long, where are the feature length episodes they promised. I'm going to hedge my bets and predict the next two episodes will also clock in under an hour long.

    I don't think Tyrion speaks Dothraki. The Dothraki will probably be shipped back to Essos once the throne is secured. Same way the wildlings will stay in the gift and around the wall, to avoid upsetting northern lords.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 704?

    No one tells Arya the water dancer to fuck off, especially some northmen knock off of Laurel & Hardy. Field of fire 2.0 was good although its prominence in the trailers dampened my excitement some what. I was impressed with Tyrions reaction to the carnage the shock of what he may of helped unleash on the culture of Westeros. He clearly wasn't happy about it. Would Dany even care about the equivalent of napalm death inflicting such terrible suffering. It's not made clear but do you think Jon suggested off scene to make a surprise attack on the Lannister military? Once again glad Jon did not bend the knee, although it's beginning to look inevitable. I just hope it happens after the victory against the knight king not before. Let him have that much. Hey get this for tin foil, Cersei hires the Golden Company and it turns out to be commanded by Howland Reed!

    I seriously doubt he leaves the tree. If what happened in the show happens somewhat in the books Bran will become part of the weirwood network and of course Summer

    I gave it a 9 out of ten one point off because it could of been longer!

    Do you think Samwell will 'discover' something in those scrolls he has to rewrite? That the citadel Maester isn't the fool that we think he is and is nudging Sam in the right direction without action saying as much? (for one reason or another)

    I'll bet Cersei will refuse to listen and that's what makes Jaime break with her.
