    Assassin's Apprentice Opinions?

    I liked the first book, loved the second, hated the third. The excessive travelogue I could forgive, but the resolution to the romance was so absolutely ridiculous to me that it killed any interest I had in the other Elderlings books.

    Unpopular opinion, but I feel like Sanderson did Elaida a disservice as a character. Sure, she was an awful human being and probably deserved what she got in the end, but even at her worst and most megalomaniacal, I never quite felt like Jordan wanted her to be the just... irredeemable monster she was in the Sanderson novels. I don't know, maybe I'm crazy, but even more than Mat I think this was the character whose nuances, however small, got lost in translation between the two writers.

    How would you rate episode 702?

    Eh, 5, mostly for the battle at the end. That was actually pretty cool.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 606?

    6/10. Would be a point or two lower but Walder is amazing.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    Solid 8. Easily the best of the season so far. Could've done with a little less Arya, the first Tyrion scene was flaky, and the Ironborn stuff is really suffering from this dude's oddly uncharismatic (IMO) portrayal of Euron, but I found a lot to like in this ep. Even the Dany stuff was decent.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 604?

    A generous 4. Awful ending aside, it was just... boring, more of the same conversations spoken with slightly different words. The excellent Pryce doing the same thing he's done every episode thus far, Tyrion taking half an hour to shrug his shoulders and say kinda sorta but not really, etc. We're halfway through the penultimate season (I think) and the amount of time they're devoting to repetition is just baffling to me. I appreciate build-up and foreshadowing, but why are we only getting this now? Why did it take so many lengthy speeches for Elliot Carver to give us his backstory, four episodes of pointless floundering for Cersei to put a plan into motion? Maybe I'm being too harsh and it's just Dany getting to me. I can't stand Emilia's Dany, and an episode of her suspense-free posturing (come on, did you think for a second that that was going to end in anything but total, predictable victory for our "silver"-haired heroine?) was bound to disappoint. Daario and Jorah continue to be the least interesting "duo" the show's ever contrived (seriously, give this trope a rest D&D) and not even Conleth's spectacular Varys can save the funny dwarf man from succumbing to Essos' plague of frustrating irrelevancy. I did like Jon and Sansa's interactions. I thought it was nice how the two Stark kids who never even liked each other can reunite with such warmth after all they've been through. Quaint. The Pyke stuff was alright but I worry no one is going to care; Yara is thoroughly unlikeable, and most show-only viewers I know are already soured on "that evil cringey pirate dude" from the last episode. I'm really surprised at how much people seemed to like this ep here.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 508?

    Solid 8/10. Really good episode. The Dany/Tyrion fanfiction was awful but pretty much everything was great, especially Jon's stuff.

    Maybe they'll bring back that cute Asian priestess from episode 4. That whole scene was pretty ominous.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 505

    6/10. The Bolton OC is enjoyable, Roose & Ramsay are still fascinating, Sansa's still hot, Jon's scenes continue to impress, and the looming fight with Stannis is intriguing, but not a lot else had me enraptured. The effects were decent. The dragons looked great.

    How would you rate episode 501?

    5/10. I don't usually enjoy the catch-up premiers and this didn't break tradition, but it was still peppered with a few cool scenes. The ending was pretty great even with its implications.

    How would you rate episode 410?

    5/10. What was good was decent, but what was bad was fucking Tumblr fanfiction levels of stupid.

    Can we all agree Thorne was the best character in that episode?

    How would you rate episode 408?

    It's apparently a metaphor for the senseless death in the series; that is, that one can't understand it no matter how hard one tries. It was a shit scene and if that is what they were going for, it's pretty lame. Gave the ep a 6/10. The duel was enjoyable, Sansa was cute, and Roose/Ramsay were great, but the rest... eh. Too much filler.

    They really can't get any of the one-liners right in this show, can they?

    How would you rate episode 406?

    8/10, mostly for the trial. Asha's little trip was a baffling waste of time, but Christ... that trial. Even Jaime's early role in it fit perfectly.
