  1. I always thought it was extremely strange that a stag, and a large one with spectacular antlers, came to be gutted right next to the set of a scene including a large stag gutted by a giant wolf.
  2. Would the show runners have had a second chance if they had been two middle-class offspring, children of teachers or accountants or engineers? Is it possible that they were "protected" by Benioff's father position/influence?
  3. You don't remember correctly. D&D insisted that they wanted it very dark. Listen to the Blue Ray commentaries: they refused to listen to the staff.
  4. Do you know this quote from Jean Cocteau*: "Puisque ces mystères me dépassent, feignons d'en être l'organisateur"? (roughly translates into: Since these mysteries are beyond me, let's pretend to be the organizer.) imho, that's exactly what HBO did. Through Hibberd's book they're trying to make us believe that they knew D&D weren't qualified for the job, but they showed so muuuuch talent and a great instinct, we decided to trust them. [The quote is often used in French politics, I'd be curious to know if it's used in other countries/cultures…] * in Les Mariés de la Tour Eiffel, a "satiric ballet" created in 1921 with music of Darius Milhaud, Arthur Honegger, Francis Poulenc, Georges Auric, Germaine Taillefer… Typical "Belle Époque" creation.
  5. Not in my world. I learned the first notions in elementary school and then more in depth in middle school. At age 13/14 I could tell the difference between a catapult, a trebuchet or a scorpion Throughout my childhood the chateau fort was the most popular toy for boys. At school, the teachers would show us gigantic painted canvases showing the evolution of the castle from Motte-and-Bailey to Norman Castle, etc. I am sure that millions of Europeans had the same education.

  7. https://7bucksapop.com/collections/other-lines/products/the-creators-game-of-thrones-3-pk-2018-fall-convention-exclusive-damaged-7-11 I'd like to wrote something smart or funny, but I can't find the words…
  8. Their reasons are 100% bullshit imho. "undead version of Catelyn seemed beneath the dignity of actress Michelle Fairley" is ridiculous…
  9. This is one of the best reviews/analysis/denunciations of the GoT disaster I've ever read. My hat's off to you, Ser.
  10. The scene was so stupid… Unfortunately this is not the only scene showing a retarded Brienne…
  11. You think we will have book 7? Let's see if WOW is ready by July 29… Not really: we never see Varys riding (not even in the books, I believe) and tbh he's the type of person who travels in a cosy carriage… Tyrion has to be with him to make the dick jokes he could hardly make if he were riding near the Queen or Greyworm…
