    Orange is the New Black

    I think Taylor Schilling does a really great job at turning her into a believable character (because I've met girls exactly like her). But it's a character I firmly believe I hate with a burning passion.

    It's funny how they played the sexual tension so very overtly in the pilot (almost shoehorning it) and from there, dropped it and built it up over so many seasons. I personally think it's one of the best aspects of the show: that Scully and Mulder got together not because the plot needed them to, but because at that point in the story and after all they'd been through together, it was inconceivable that they could not end up together.

    The show still had the ability to do some incredibly emotional scenes even at its worst. I still tear up a little thinking of the final scene of This is Not Happening Badlaa, although creepy, is...not one of the best MotW episodes, but the scene where Scully breaks down and says that she can't be open-minded like Mulder was some of the best acting work Anderson did on the show. Okay. It just seems odd that the rumor started in 2012 (from what I found) and there still hasn't been any official announcement yet and all we have is those german screenshots.

    ^Has there actually been any official confirmation of all this? I was super excited, but after some a lot of digging, I couldn't find any official statement from Fox, nothing but rumors, those HD screens on those german forums and vague declarations from some guy.

    Yeah, if I had seen that on TV as one (or maybe a two-parter) episode (I could see it fitting easily in the darker seasons), I would've thought it was excellent. But 6 years after the show ended... not really. Anderson was excellent, but Duchovny looked like he wasn't even trying to pretend to care about it.

    Watching only the myth-arc episodes is pretty great but a little depressing, those episodes are bleakbleakbleak.

    No waaaay!!! X-files had some pretty amazing cinematography sometimes and TV format really didn't do it justice at all. I'm so excited about this :o (I love X-Files up until when DD left the show, after that it's very hit or miss, but there's still some awesome episodes)

    Ugh what a boring episode. GRRM or not, an entire episode of exposition is boring.

    Good point. I hadn't thought about it that way. Also, I wasn't under the impression that Gwen Christie had a body double. They "uglied" (relatively speaking) her up a bit in the show, but she's a stunning looking model irl, so I don't see why she'd need a double.

    Because the show has always played well with musical motifs and character themes. It just seems weird that they'd play Theon's theme over a scene that had nothing to do with him, is all.

    It made for an incredibly powerful scene but I couldn't help thinking "this is Theon's theme...". A more soaring and dark variation of the Stark/Winterfell theme would've been nice.

    So far, this season is just getting better and better. Last week's episode was more "in your face" good, mostly because of Dracarys, but this week's was just all around excellent, well paced, well written and extremely well acted (well for the most part). I love the buildup, ep 9 is going to be phenomenal, probably better than Blackwater. Overall, I love the direction this show is taking. It used to be bleak and sad, now it's becoming extremely dark and hopeless. Beric vs Hound was the best fight scene we've had so far. Best since Hound vs Mountain Jon/Ygritte: Still don't care about this storyline. Kit is terrible. Dragonstone: Wow, I loved everything there. I love the dark gothic atmosphere in those scenes. In the books, I always got an extremely creepy vibe from all the scenes in Dragonstone. Okay, the pickled babies was not exactly subtle but this is TV, they need to establish things with the little time they have per scene/location. Selyse was great, a bit more human and less batshit insane as in the books. I liked that. hehe Edric. Shireen was perfect, just the right amount of hope and melancholy. I'm looking forward to her teaching Davos how to read. I'm a bit saddened by the omission of Patchface, but I don't think he'd work well on TV, plus we already have enough characters as it is. Maybe they'll give his prophetic powers to Shireen? Jaime/Brienne: Highlight of the episode without a doubt. That bath scene was extraordinary. Emmy for NCW already. Robb: Man, the Karstark execution gave me chills. Brilliant scene. And the Roslin/Edmure marriage is in motions. Arya: Loved all of her scenes. Maisie is the best. Her scene with Gendry made me tear up a little. Daenerys: Good scene. I love listening to Valyrian. Grey worm is hot. Barristan/Jorah banter was well written. King's Landing: Okay they are overplaying Olenna now. The toilet humor has to go and she's not as sharp as I imagined her. The actress is great, but her lines are just badly written. Loras scene was a little pointless. Nice butt though. Littlefinger continues to be one of the worst characters, god I just want to smack him everytime Aiden Gillen opens his mouth with that forced raspy voice of his. Tywin/Tyrion/Cersei scene was fantastic. What with all the buildup for royal wedding, it's obvious now PW will happen in ep 10. It's just be weird if all the buildup led to having to wait for next season. So yeah, overall, fantastic episode, the buildup this season is incredible; it's so much better than last season.

    How would you rate episode 304?

    ^It's not outside of the realm of possibilities. Abused children (which Theon sort of was) often love their parents much more than they love them. It's entirely possible that Ned tried his hardest to never be a true father to Theon but Theon still yearned for his approval and loved him like a real father. It totally makes sense to me. 10 all around: Best episode of the season for me. All the storylines clicked. This season is so much better than S2 so far.

    Can a sword really slice the top of a head clean off like Stannis' did ? I doubt so. I'm not expecting GoT to be a historically accurate depiction of the War of the Roses, thus don't really care much about the science behind the battles or logic behind the tactics. The book made it sound like the river was literally on fire and I distinctly remember having a feeling of suffocation while reading that scene...Actually the characters in the show itself mention the river being on fire a few times but after the initial wildfire explosion (which, admittedly, was spectacular) we really really don't get a sense of anything being on fire except a couple guys on the shore. That was my only complaint in an otherwise amazing episode.

    Minor complaint : When I read the battle, I pictured a true inferno of flames, as if they were caught fighting inside a furnace. It made the Hound's fear a little more believable. Here he was like "aah a burning guy! I must flee!" Other than that, awesome episode. Stannis being in the thick of the action was a brilliant idea and the Wildfire explosion was pretty damn cool.
