    [Poll] How would you rate episode 607?

    So I went with 4. Mostly because they got the Blackfish right and Ian McShane. Also no Dany and Tyrion. That's a plus. The Hound - They spent 2/3 of a precious hour, of which there are few left, bringing back a minor player in the overall story. They wasted a talent like Ian McShane and they further tarnished Ned's character by having the Brotherhood slaughter innocent people for a few scraps of food. The North- So Jon Snow comes back from dead and has only changed for the worse. He's just more emo and ineffectual. At this point if he becomes the prince who was promised or Azor Ahai its going to be a complete leap in logic. And apparently The North doesn't Remember. They have completely destroyed this great storyline from the novels. Slaver's Bay - Nonsense, just gratuitous sex. Arya - Another great storyline they have butchered. Arya has learned apparently nothing while training, flashing money around in broad daylight, letting anybody get within 3 feet of her. And the master assassin the Waif shows her true face on a crowded bridge and stabs Arya in the gut and not a vital area. These guys don't know what the hell they are doing. My 10 year old could write a better adaptation.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 607?

    I have never given it a 1 but I can see how someone could and still watch. When I judge this show I judge based on what it was and what it could be. I don't judge it against other shows, that would be silly. The production values, sets, costumes etc are too good to judge against most TV but if you judge based on previous HBO shows or some of the stuff AMC is doin, that's a similar playing field. The first 3 seasons for the most part are the best TV ever. But as the writers of X-men Origins: Wolverine and Troy gain further control of the narrative it becomes more like Wolverine and less like Deadwood. If you judged this episode solely against 1st season Baelor you could easily give it a 1, Baelor would be a 10. That's kind of how I rate it but not against 1 single episode, that's not rational. But giving each episode with all the lack of logic and shitty dialog a 10 isn't rational either. This used to be my favorite show now its not even in my top 5. As to why I thoroughly dislike most of what this show has become and still watch, there are many factors. Its my single favorite story of all time. I love A Song of Ice and Fire, so not watching really isn't an option. Also I got so many friends, family and co-workers into the show in the 1st couple seasons, and being a semi-expert on the story they all come to me with questions after. I have to have an idea of what happened. Finally, there is something called Hope-Watching. I have sincere hope that maybe they'll recapture some of what made this show great. Maybe someday they'll get it right. But they get further and further away from that each episode.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    A whole pile of people tried to be ahead but the Taylor Swift fans and 10 voters, through popularity contests chose them. Regardless of numerical values or discrete candidates, the popular opinion is almost always wrong. And statistics are generally not applicable to value judgements.

    Which statistical laws exactly? A standard bell curve should have near equal values at the extreme ends with higher measures in the moderate values. If one extreme end is substantially higher than the other, I would theorize that those on that disjointed extreme are the trolls.

    There is a distinction between occasionally and always.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    Okay lets go another direction. In my country the popular opinion is the best candidates for leader of the once-free-world are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. One is a narcissistic criminal and the other is a narcissistic criminal According to you those that disagree with popular opinion are trolls.

    Can you stop comparing this great work of literature to Harry Potter please?

    You've gone off the point of the original topic. I responded to somebody saying that because we think the writing is bad in the show and its going to hit all the major plot points when the books are finished are we going to say George is a bad writer. I said George is going to get to those points with logic and reason not the nonsense that the show is selling. We all have analyzed and contemplated this story for 20 years. We have a pretty good idea where its going anyway. How we get there is not going to be spoiled by this drivel.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    Here come the insults. Critical thinking also implies being able to have a discussion without ad hominem attacks. George gave them a guide map to the major events. How you get there is just as important as how they happen. If you take a completely different path to the end, it is very likely that the story is nonsensical. Which this has become.

    I don't think you take any comment as a generalization. There are always things to appreciate in GoT. The production value is top notch, costumes, filmography. That is why so many of us are so frustrated with the moronic writing.

    I really believe that undeserved Emmy gave Tweedle D&D the ego to say they don't have to follow the source material at all. I also feel that they go out of their way to insult fans of the books that take issue with their nonsensical changes. 'Fuck Aggo' in Ep 4 I know was a direct insult to us. Also I think the wasteful killing of the direwolves is a childish stab at the fans also used as shock value to incite the ignorant masses. I don't believe George is going to kill them indiscriminately like that if he kills them at all
