  1. Stannis is played by Stephen Dillane, Frank is his son (in real life lol)
  2. And the legendary swordsman who owns the legendary sword uses it in duet with another sword and delivers a completely irrelevant juggling act!
  3. In French The Hound is "le limier", (= bloodhound but the word is generally used for "detective", rarely for dogs) which is stupid when we have "le molosse", a big, scary dog, the word sounds great in French and really fits Sandor Clegane.
  4. the French translation has been severely criticized for being "overtranslated" (like Blackfyre translated to “Feunoyr”); as a matter of fact even when names/places are perfectly translated, the english version always sounds better.
  5. I agree and imho the same can be said about Lyanna Stark.
  6. Stark: energy (dams, power plants, etc.), wood for construction and firewood, leather and fur… Tyrell: farming, breeding, food processing. Baratheon: security, armament, military equipment… Tully: textile industry, clothing and ready-to-wear. Lannister: banking and financial services obviously. Hightower: law firms, insurance firms, universities… Arryn: high value-added manufactured products, jewelry… Martell: porn industry,
  7. They were hired for the The Three Body Problem adaptation, and then the main producer was killed by poison given to him by his assistant… Since then, the project has not been heard from again.
  8. The script is so bad that even my toilet bowl would reject it but we could hope that the actors would "take it upon themselves"… Alas no… I've seen high school plays in which the tragic scenes with the death of the loved one were far more believable and moving.
  9. It seems like the "Three Body Problem" project has a problem: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/china-producer-on-netflixs-three-body-problem-poisoned-in-alleged-murder-plot
  10. I'm a bit surprised, as I thought the "Is Arya 18 when she has sex" thing was mostly a North America thing. Age of consent is 14 in Germany, Austria, Italy, etc. It's 15 in France, Denmark, Greece, Poland, Romania, etc. It's 16 in the UK, Russia, Spain, etc. Arya's age in this scene/context is the last thing that could be of concern to an average European. That been said I'm glad your video was widely googled and watched.
  11. Dumb&Dumber ran a huge, successfull show like they'd run some group project in college - a bit of work, tons of beer, weed, dick jokes, etc. I'm sure all the cast and the tech crew would hate having to work with them again…
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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…
  17. Their reasons are 100% bullshit imho. "undead version of Catelyn seemed beneath the dignity of actress Michelle Fairley" is ridiculous…
  18. This is one of the best reviews/analysis/denunciations of the GoT disaster I've ever read. My hat's off to you, Ser.
