    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    As the podcast pointed out, for many of its critics, the show fails on its own "merits," more than just as adaptation. Lapses of logic, continuity, characterisation frustrate the discerning viewer, whether they've read the books or not. It works as bread and circuses, so for the very casual viewer, who watches for tits and dragons, it's AWESOME.

    What do we know of the Dornish in the show? They're vengeful, despise weakness, and all they want to do is fight and fuck, fuck and fight. They're the Klingons of Westeros. Only without honor.

    This is awesome. I'm stealing it.

    I keep wondering WHY in-show Cersei would keep her pageboy bob. One of the annoying things about this presentation from the beginning has been these awful elaborate hairstyles (think Sansa's Purple Wedding Medusa look, or Cersei in Winterfell), which require long hair. All female characters save Brienne and TitSnake have longish hair. But Cersei post Walk is going to keep that 'do she got courtesy of Salon de Sparrow? They could have given the actress gradually longer wigs and actually SHOWN time progression... But the show doesn't care about that, or lil Sam would be walking and talking by now.

    With Satannis's death, Randyll became the Best Military Commander in Westeros. And like being a direwolf or a husband of Marge Boleyn, or a Stark for that matter, with that title comes sudden onset stupidity and eventually death.

    A thing that bugs me as a book reader first and a show-sorta-follower second is the loss of the narrative as far as the coming of Long Night 2.0. I know the show hates magic as much as it hates direwolves ( but not giant fire breathing lizards), but in Feast, Jaime notes it's snowing in the Riverlands and could be in Lannisport and King's Landing as well. This is NOT our winter. And fell things are on the move, bringing an even more dire winter than the usual by Westeros standards. And the only sign we have in show is some folks are wearing sleeves (fringed or French, we don't know...). I'm really not worried about the books being "spoiled" by the show, or spoilers "spoiling" the show, because tits and dragons, and boatsex.

    [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    The estrogen is important, too!

    Tyrion + Sansa potentially Reunite

    Jaime and Brienne's little waves and glances at Riverrun... so junior high (in a good way; they simply don't know how to act). I hated the Bronn coarse commentary there. I know I'm talking about my personal 'ship . Instead they'll probably meet in combat, and not their foreplay kind, if they ever meet again. It doesn't seem particularly a priority for this show.

    Tyrion + Sansa potentially Reunite

    We know that GRRM worships Cocteau (he named his theater after him, after all) and was a writer for the TV version of BatB. There are a few beauty/beast relationships (San/San and J/B) in the source material, very finely drawn and emotionally and sexually charged. I just fear the HBO crew might misunderstand. They don't exactly do subtleties well. I'd worry that they might use an actual beast, except they seem to dislike working with animals.

    [Spoilers] EP602

    I guess I wasn't clear... My reply to the poster was meant to address his apparent anger about criticism of the show and telling critics: If you don't like it, stop watching. People should be able to watch something and point out its flaws as well as its successes. There are threads for both praise and criticism, but this is an episode discussion forum, so we're going to get both here. Telling the critics to quit watching or quit talking about it is trying to silence one side of the discussion.

    [Spoilers] EP602

    I would suggest that if you can't stomach criticism of the show, stay out of the forums. This is the spoiler episode thread, and there will be good and bad points pointed out.

    How would you rate episode 601?

    Citizens of the realm ... shagging every stableboy ... a sword swallower through and through ... I am not a politician ...

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Eh, don't engage the troll, he's already over in other, more sympathetic territory, whining about us. Because we're the enemy, you know, for pointing out that the story the D's are telling makes no sense.
