    How would you rate episode 301?

    Tormund IS fantastic. Glad to see they kept Daenarys' language ruse. About what I expected. Some great stuff, lots of good stuff, some cringeworthy stuff. 8/10

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    True. No more Canadian actors. Ryan Reynolds was bad enough...

    How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    9 out of 10. I'm still disappointed at not a single Tower of Joy reference. Just before Ned's death there seemed to be a hesitation and I thought there might be something... But no. Otherwise this series has far exceeded my expectations of an adapted series. Yes some things have been changed, yes Roz has been annoying, but this series has gotten me hook. And my fiancé, for whom the last fantasy anything she got into was the Lord of the Rings movies is thoroughly hooked. She cried when Ned died. And she never cries with movies. She hates me for getting into the show but is addicted now.
  4. As much as I loathe to get involved in this I fear I am unable to resist. Just because you believe your opinions lack emotions do not make it so. To not admit your own emotional influences in your opinions is an insidious and dangerous conceit. Every human opinion has emotion. It is impossible for a human being to separate opinion from emotion. To deny that your emotion influences your opinions or rationales could in time lead you to a belief of moral superiority over others due to your believe that other's opinions are swayed by emotions while yours are (falsely) not. I hope you in time come to realize that you do not have a monopoly on what it means to be unemotional or biased. I also hope you understand how awesomely epic that previous paragraph was, especially posted on a thread dedicated to rating a television episode of a series based on the first book of a fantasy series. Back on to what really matters, my opinion: I gave this episode a 7. So the series stands as 1:9/2:8/3:10/4:9/5:9/6:8/7:7 Going a bit downhill the last few, but perhaps it is just my expectations that are going up. And I really want to see the Tower of Joy.
