    How Would You Rate Episode 110

    Finally got to watch it.... good ending. For the first time since the begging of the season the show felt epic. Let's hope they come back next year with some more $ and step things up a little. Gave this ep a 9.

    How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    Mr. Bastard, At any point in my post did I say sex scenes cost as much as battle scenes? No. What I said was sex scenes cost more than, let's say, your average person to person interaction in KL or at the Wall. Cut back on sex and have more money to do other things. It's called managing your money.

    Reading a lot about how the budget held back the battles. Not good enough. There are a lot of pointless scenes in the seires that cost a fair amount of money, such as long, drawn out, hard core sex. Those women get paid well to preform, and preform they did. Don't defend this with budget constrains when all it needed was a few clips.

    Ok, I get it, their skipping one battle to focus on the other.... no, no their... their shipping both? No. Way. Talk about your all time let-downs. This happens to often. 6, for what it could have been. There where some great scenes but at the end of the day it did not deliver. Anyone watch the new x-men? That delivered. The Dark Night? That delivered. Band of brothers? Delivered. The Pacific? Delivered. Deadwood? Delivered. This is a good series, but I can in no way endorse the idea that it is on even ground with the books. Im talking direction and writing, at the top when it's good, at the bottom when it's bad. I'm bot saying it hasn't delivered... just not enough.

    That ep worked for me. I gave it an 8+, which is high for my standards. Its the first time this seires truly felt epic, which was an element I thought was lacking from the show. Of course I'm judging the sieres to the book, and that not fair to the sieres. It would need to be twenty hours long (which would be great) to capture the ture nature of A Game of Thrones.
  7. Lany, Yes there are misunderstandings. I never insulted him or discredited him. I made a joke about my own comment; the Drogo secne had a WWE feel to it, he said he liked it, I said he must like WWE. It's a joke. As for my opinions; they are not the only viable ones on the board, but they are made without an emotional attachment. You admit emotion in your last post which creates bias messaging. It goes back to my original statement of inflated ep rankings. who cares about what I have to say? Im one dude.
  8. Lany, We, the readers, not your husband, the non reader, must separate emotions. How eles can I put it?
  9. Popgun, To quote Gus from Lonesome Dove, "your in over your head, Pea." To quote Walter from Big Lebowski "your out of your element, Donny!"
  10. Lany: Your husband must like pro wrestling. Look, I never said it's not a good show, (Its my fav on tv) but you prove my point when I say we fan boys/girls can't truly make subjective post unless we strip all emotion. That dosent happen here much; look at the rankings of each ep. Not many votes below seven. It reminds me of when Star Wars ep 1 came out. People where going nuts as they made their way out of theaters saying how great it was. A few months later most were in tears. Remember fan is short for fanatic.
  11. What I'm saying is remove the emotional attachment and judge it that way. It's very hard to do; most posters can't. It can't truely be subjective if emotions are fueling your post, there needs to be separation, which the forum lacks when dealing with the show. Tywin: how was it bad? How was it good, I ask? Drogo: "I want you! Westeros, next Saterday night in the Madisen Square Garden!...." Robert: that was not done well... FACT Porn: "hey Joey, my mom and dad are gone. Look whats on TV," says the 15 year old to his friend.
  12. We are all die hard fans of asoiaf, but at times our emotions can get in the way of what is really going on. Thus, I feel, this forum lacks brutal honesty. People that see the truth are calling out the show, while others are saying its "the best one yet" or "excellent" or "a 10". The fact is this ep was none of those. It was good, not great, and I don't see how a view could be subjective. Ex: The porn shot- I like chicks, but we all know what's going on there. Robberts death- "I guess the king died"' lacked emotion. Tywin and the stag- poorly done when put in context of the book. Drogo- here I come WWE! In conclusion, this ep was much like the seires, up and down, hit and miss, a roller coster...you get the point.

    How Would You Rate Episode 106?

    Liked it. I think an eight is in place. The lack of D wolves is hurting the show greatly, but that's not to say its not moving in the right direction.
  14. I like to wait a day before I vote, but... Gave it a 9+; great episode, best one yet.
