  1. Felt no urge to watch whatsoever. Show's previous sins means they won't be getting views from me this season.
  2. Nice quote. I think I will get some fine use out this! and Only if a door suddenly teleports its way into the cave.
  3. I misread you. My apologies. I thought the people referred to in the second sentence were the same as those the first sentence was about. As for the second sentence, I must disagree. Most Successful doesn't mean Best. It doesn't even necessarily mean Good. It certainly doesn't mean it is, or should be, immune from criticism. However, I do draw the line at personally attacking someone for having a different opinion, as one particular person has done here. Fortunately I blocked them some time back.
  4. Nah. I guess a week or two. Other plots will advance first.
  5. This ep should create a bit of a stir.
  6. I was thinking the war against the Iron Isles about 9-10 years previous. Stannis lead the 7K fleet. "Maybe" Roose was in Ned's army?
  7. All hail Balon The Great. The true survivor and winner of the War of the Five Kings.
  8. She always had one. Remember half the Lannister army couldn't find the BWB for 3 years but she teleported there from Dragonstone in two weeks.
  9. :cheers: I am far from a Stannis fan either, but this show character is so far from the actual character, they should have just changed his name like Talisa.
  10. I'll still be here. I'll watch it on Youtube a couple of hours after release same as I have this season.
  11. Book canon: no they are not. Targs have had greyscale Show canon: who knows, they will just make it up.
  12. Nice of you to notice this point. Very clever. If only GRRM hadn't established this as the very reason the Shadow Tower and Eastwatch were still manned - and why the women of Bear Island spent the centuries since the Starks settled them there *fighting off the attacks fro the sea from the Iron Born and the Wildlings*. Nice try though.
  13. I really don't understand your point. If a person really didn't like it, 1 is a perfectly valid and honest score for them to give.
  14. The show has established that 1) Eastwatch-by-the-Sea is one of the 3 fortresses manned by the Night's Watch 2) Stannis's Fleet was harboured at Eastwatch-by-the-Sea. So, no, its isn't all book knowledge whatsoever.
  15. He had a fleet of boats. He could have landed A) North of the Wall where the Army of the dead is, or B.) South of the Wall where at a Night's Watch fortress called 'Eastwatch-by-the-Sea' that he himself was in command of and could get supplies and aid their march to Castle Black protected from the Army of the Dead by a 700 foot wall. Even more convenient is that Eastwatch-by-the-Sea is a safe harbour for the fleet and is where it was anchored for him, and to where it would be returning after dropping him ashore.
  16. I will nit pick about whatever I want to nitpick about. The only reason I have spent any time on this show at all is precisely because I read the books. If it were not for that, I wouldn't watch the show at all. Its TV - I will happily critique anything I choose and am under compulsion to find it enjoying. If it is not enjoyable I will say so.
  17. I put it down to a lot of people in the 8 category put a lot of emphasis on technical things like set design, costumes and production, while a lot of people below 4 put emphasis on 'how much did I enjoy this episode'. Both would appear to be valid ways of making a rating.
  18. No doubt there are many who do that - and that is the very reason Ran does the top and bottom cuts when he does the stats... But in the years I've been watching these polls then amount of "I voted 10 to counter the low votes" comments vastly outweighs the reverse. Most notably there was an episode a couple of years back when the 1 votes hit double figures rather quickly. The amount of 'I gave 10 because...' outraged comments we more than the number of 1 votes as a response, so I quite happily call people out on that BS ever since. (In that particular instance I gave the episode a 7 iirc)
  19. People can watch what ever they want to watch and rate based on whatever criteria they want to rate on. You only rate on things you have positive thoughts on (because of the self censoring process you use) that is fine. On the last point, there is another option: people did not have a positive experience and rated it accordingly. That is perfectly valid and far more honest than hate-voting a 10 due to not liking someone else's rating.
  20. Exactly. Thank you for demonstrating my point. He didn't say it about Sansa.
  21. Because Ramsay never told Reek to make Sansa wet for him in the books.
  22. Well that would be a valid justification for giving a score on a poll 'Rating of other people's opinions' rather than 'Rate the episode'.
  23. People use different criteria for making their rating. Some people give consideration to technical aspects. Some to acting, writing, plot consistency, direction. Some people give consideration to the question "How much did I enjoy it?" If their enjoyment is '1' then it is a valid score.
