  1. I've felt all along that the reason Stannis is being somewhat downplayed in the show is that, in the long run, his character is not one of the important ones for the ending of the story arc.

    Decent episode undone partly by the closing scene with Dany and the crowd of reasonably clean slaves.... Oh, and I am by no means a Stannis fan, but all they need to do is give him a waxed handlebar mustache to twirl in his fingers while he MUAHAHAHAHAHAs all over Dragonstone and I think the portrayal they're going for will be complete. :rolleyes:

    Same here- foreshadowing her being a Faceless Man.
  4. Dracarys! is one of my favorite scenes in all the books and they did it proud tonight.....Great, great scene. :thumbsup:
  5. Loved the foreshadowing in the HOTU- the throne room covered in Snow.... Bring on the R+L=J partisans. Loved Dany being very Targaryen with locking XXD and Dorreah in the empty vault. Don't piss off a Targ....even a realtively sane one. Loved the dragons sitting there anticipating Dany giving them the word....Flame On! Loved Theon and Luwin's scene. Loved Tyrion's scene with Shae. Should really pay off if they conclude Shae's storyline like the book. OTOH.... Jon and the Half-Hand's fight left some of the non-book readers I watch with lost and confused. They should have set that up better and more clearly. The three horn blasts and the attack of the Others and Walkers didn't really convey the dread it should have. The scene felt flat and the look of the Other was not what I've pictured...but it's not my show to run... The Other apparently looking right at Sam and then moving on was just dumb. Overall, an excellent episode.
  6. At this point, I almost hope that Dagmer=Ramsey....just so I can watch the internets explode with the intensity of a thousand suns.....
  7. Agree. He's been a very enthusiastic reviewer thus far....
  8. Seems the bloom is somewhat off the rose for Alan Sepinwall over at HitFix- http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/whats-alan-watching/posts/review-game-of-thrones-the-prince-of-winterfell-fear-itself
  9. I think we'll get the infamous "5 Year Gap" from the books on the show without 5 show years passing. Arya's storyline will be the better for it. Dany is already aged up on the show. I'll always maintain that the book series would have been even better if GRRM would've been able to make the gap work.
  10. I'm wondering if they'll move up Coldhands, in combination with Osha, to replace the Reeds.
  11. Totally agree and I'm at a total loss as to why they did that scene that way. Brotherhood who??? Hell, my wife, who read ACOK a few years ago, is getting confused watching the series.... Except for Roz....Everytime she comes on screen, my wife says, "OK, she's the one NOT in the books, right?" :drunk:
  12. I refuse to believe anything about any Kardashian is real in any known sense of the word 'real.'
  13. ...and natural...which is nice to see in this wacky Kardashian world we live in..... :cool4:
  14. 'Yara' has so far not exhibited one ounce of charisma that Asha has. That charsima is so important for Asha to lead Ironborn into battle and to make a play for the Seastone chair. I'm just not seeing that onscreen.
  15. Yes, indeed......this is going to be fun to watch......

    References and Homages

    I've seen Darkstar referenced here in relation to the song by the Grateful Dead. As something of a Deadhead, I thought I would throw this out there as there are some...interesting parallels. Dire Wolf Lyrics by Robert Hunter, Music by Jerry Garcia In the timbers of Fennario the wolves are running round The winter was so hard and cold froze ten feet 'neath the ground Don't murder me I beg of you don't murder me Please don't murder me I sat down to my supper T'was a bottle of red whiskey I said my prayers and went to bed That's the last they saw of me Don't murder me I beg of you don't murder me Please don't murder me When I awoke, the Dire Wolf Six hundred pounds of sin Was grinnin at my window All I said was "come on in" Don't murder me I beg of you don't murder me Please don't murder me The wolf came in, I got my cards We sat down for a game I cut my deck to the Queen of Spades but the cards were all the same Don't murder me I beg of you don't murder me Please don't murder me In the backwash of Fennario The black and bloody mire The Dire Wolf collects his due while the boys sing round the fire Don't murder me I beg of you don't murder me Please don't murder me Has GRRM ever said anything about listening to the Grateful Dead?
