  1. The battle was horrible as usual. I wish they had used experts to guide them into filming a plausible battle. None of it made sense or was logical. The episode really dragged toward the end with the piano music. That was at least 10 wasted minutes. It's like if they were trying to created memorable, heroic death scenes like Boromir in LOTR, but none of it felt earned.
  2. This episode was ok, but "bring Cercei a wight" is still the dumbest thing ever. Why would she or anyone in King's Landing care about that living corpse after seeing the zombie Mountain for months and 2 flying dragons? This whole truce attempt made no sense. Cercei is cornered and could be ended quickly by Dany at this point, I hate how they pretend she's somehow an equal opposition.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 610?

    I didn't vote because this episode is clearly an 11. Perfect in every way. Lots of loose ends are finally tied. It's about time. + We are leaving Mereen! + Tower of Joy confirmed what we all knew. + Cersei gets rid of the Sparrows. + Bye bye Tommen. + The Queen of Thorns smacks the sand snakes around. + Lyanna Mormont...future hand of the King of the North? + Jon is the King of the North + Davos exposes Melisandre + Bran is coming south. + Sam is at the citadel. + The Frays get their comeupins (totally surprised me. I thought Jaime was behind it at first) - Varys teleported on Daenerys's ship....come on, this is ridiculous. - They still pretend we don't know who Jon's father is? - Tyrion has the same Hand of the King pin as in Westeros? The couldn't make one with a Dragon claw instead of a human hand?
  4. Well, for a start. You don't leave him in plain view with your foot soldiers as if he was just one of them. - You can hide him in the forest and have him charge the rear or flanks of the Bolton army in the middle of the fight - You can build him a shield made of trees so he can move toward the enemy army fullly protected and not become a pincushion. - You can make him carry en even bigger, wider shield so he can move close to the enemy with lots of men behind him. - You can make him hurl rocks at the enemy from behind that shield, like a living catapult.
  5. It seems like any epsiode with a big battle always gets very good ratings. I gave this a 7. It was ok, but not great. What bothered me: - Wun Wun the giant was not used effectively. Come on. The Boltons have NEVER seen a giant, why not try to surprise and confuse them with him? - Where is Ghost? - The part of the battle where Jon Snow is buried under his men was a confusing mess. - Daenerys surprising cocky idiots with her dragons for the 15th time in the serie. -Theon and Yara teleported in Daenerys' throne room. -The Knights of the Vale charge was a very pale imitation of the Rohirrim charge in Retun of the Kings. Too predictable. - Lyanna Mormont had no lines before and after the battle.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 608?

    5 I didn't like this episode much. - The siege of Riverrun was underwhelming for all parties involved. Brienne was pointless. Blackfish died off screen? seriously? - Arya is yet again a victim of the waif...so last epsiode wasn't even a trick, just Arya being dumb. + The Hound killed bandits. + Is Arya really leaving Bravos now?

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    I gave it a 5. Too many things are starting to bother me: Little Finger teleporting. Arya defeated the waif when she was blind, but now the waif's power is over 9000. Sansa asking Brienne to teleport to Riverrun because Ramsay has the magical power to stop all ravens in the north. Why the hell did Bran go to to the Three-eyed-Raven in the first place? Why is he supposed to replace him? The Three Eyed Raven knows the whitewalkers are coming for him...so he goes into a flashback with Bran about some unimportant things at Winterfell to set up Hodor's hodoring. Weren't the whitewalkers descending on Westeros? Nope, they are teleporting to Max Von Sydow because his power to show flashback to a cripple is their greatest threat? Wights are now capable of crawling on walls and ceillings like bugs? Direwolf dies like an idiot. Bran messing up Hodor in the past creates a time paradox which GoT really didn't need ast this point. Things are complicated enough. Melisandre II in Mereen to make the people love the Dragon Queen which isn't even there....We don't care about Mereen. We want Tyrion with Deanerys, not him trying to run GoT's Iraq. Yara and Theon have enough loyal men to steal hundreds of ships? How did Euron even win the Kingsmoot then?

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 508?

    I'm done expecting the show to be faithful to the book since season 3. Now I just watch it for what it is and this episode deserved an high score.

    One of the worst epsiode since the show has been on. Far too many departures from the book.

    How would you rate episode 308?

    Books and TV/movie are very different mediums. Writers can can go a lot further because everything is left to the imagination of the reader. There's no "sexploitation" in the Game of Thrones books. Nobody is going to read them just to see the "naughty" bits. The TV show so far has gone out of its way to shoot scenes which aren't in the book for the sake of showing gratuitous nudity (Petyr and his whores, Joffrey and his whores, Podrick at the brothel, Melisandre + Stannis + Gendry). All of this while material is cut from the book because of "time constraints".
  11. One thing I didn't like about the bear scene is that in the book, when Jaime goes back to save Brienne, it's the first time we see him caring about her. In the TV show, they are given 2 or 3 extra scenes that make it unlikely he would leave her behind with Locke in the first place. Also the fact that all the men present are Bolton's makes the whole thing a bit silly. Who's leading them? Locke or the guy escorting Jaime?

    How would you rate episode 306?

    I gave it a 5. Really poor episode compared to the previous ones. I liked Ramsay Bolton and the scenes at the wall. Everything else was meh. Melisandre, Stannis' red priest, dressed in bright Red, crossed the Crownlands or the Trident during wartime with an escort of Stannis Baratheon's men? Tyrion blaming Joffrey instead of Cersei from the assassination attempt? Come on, he has never been so clueless. I guess Ros' death is a good thing though.

    How would you rate episode 305?

    That's because season 1 was the most faithful to the source material. Ros and the infamous Petyr & 2 whores scenes were the only big departures from the book.

    Another great episode. I loved nearly every single scenes. Lots of nudity, but nothing gratuitious, which is how it should be. I'm a bit annoyed that they rushed season 2 and are now introducing characters lately into the story. Also, the actress who played Stannis's wife is far too pretty.

    How would you rate episode 304?

    Blackwater lacked some CGI shots to show how big the battle was. It looked like Stannis was trying to take King's Landing with 50 men and 5 boats.
