    [Spoilers] Rant and Rave Without Repercussion

    For sure it's him being diplomatic. For some reason the forum ate up part of my post. I wrote that he's probably tired of seeing his story and characters being slaughtered.

    Wow! He says it's because he does not have the time, but come on, its 10 hours per year. He is sick and tired of this abomination.

    I agree. I was talking in regards to the current season. The decline in quality is so frustrating especially because of the pretty great earlier seasons. Us geeks would not have told all our friends about it if had not been a great show back then pp

    This enrages me way more than the stupid plotholes and all: The people involved in making this show take a huge dump on the exact people, who even made this show the big success it is: geeks and hardcore fans. Of course the show is a success now, and of course people watch that crap. I heard people say, they like this season best so far because earlier there was too much boring, talkative scenes that they could not follow. It's okay to make pulp. But just don't flatter yourself by believing the success is because of the high quality of the writing or anything.

    dragonstone to the wall in a day?

    The problem with the travel times is not that we have to see Jon sit in a boat for a month. But if we know he's traveling for a month, then what happens in the other storylines during that time? What did Dany or Cersei do during that month? I think in this thread someone mentioned Robert traveling from KL to WF in Episode 1. That's true, but we see Bran going like "They're finally here" or something, so we clearly are shown that some time has passed. Also, there weren't any other storylines on hold at that time. If all the travels and the passing of time is so unproblematic in S7, can someone provide a rough timeline of the events so far for the major characters? preferably a timeline that doesn't rely on, i don't know, parties in an ongoing war doing fuck'all for a month or roundtrips of a continent in a week. On a sidenote, though: I don't think Jaime actually went to CR in those 14 days, did he? I think he met the Lannister army on the way to Highgarden. That makes it a little easier to swallow, although far from realistic.

    [Spoilers] EP606

    Did anyone else imagine Horn Hill a lot smaller? That looked like a huge castle. Also it looked like a library or a museum. Loved Randyll. Great casting there.The dinner scene was good, but I think they've overdone it a little with the cheerful happy mother and sister. They seemed just a little too sweet to that complete stranger in rags. Heartsbane looked cool, but I wonder why Sam would take it. No good can come of this. I get it, he's getting braver. But he's still smarter than that. Really looking forward to Jaime/Blackfish confrontation. I loved that in the books. I'm not sure how well it can be done on TV though, since there's a lot in Jaime's inner thoughts. Also Jaime on the show is someone else entirely

    I can confirm that by personal experience. You don't feel them biting at all. Well, at least that's true, if they bite on your ankles, legs or torso. Can't speak for other, more sensitive areas :uhoh:
  8. One thing i read in the twop-board: Are they implying, that Tyrion decides to use the "services" of the woman he finds with Pycelle, when he puts the second coin on the table? I didn't think so, but apparently one might get the idea....
