  1. I’m all in for this as long as they cameo the original cast. At least I won’t feel so damn old being a Lotr fan.
  2. It’s not an issue, I just thought it was a bit too much to have all of them have romantic interests, or close to all, Will was just kinda happy to dance. That’s just not how I remember middle school but I suppose I had lived in a bubble. It really doesn’t matter.
  3. Like I said, according to google, they were all 12 last season and they are all 13 this season. No class jumping.
  4. How the hell is that even possible? It was specifically stated that one year passed since season one. So am I supposed to believe they were 14 last season? And Will was 11 and he happened to skip three years of school because he is smart? That really can’t be the case. Okay, so according to google, they were 12 last season and they are 13 now. Still not sure why all 13-year-old characters need romantic relationships and kissing.
  5. Aren’t they classmates? How can Will be younger? And weren’t they like 11 last season?
  6. Finished season 2 on Friday. I’m not saying I didn’t enjoy it, it was entertaining and fun, but I do think season 1 was stronger. Highlights: - I absolutely love Steve. He was so nice and cool and brave this season. I loved how much he cared about the younger ones and he was pretty great with nancy too. Loved loved loved his bromance with Dustin. - I also really loved the fact that Dustin and Lucas got more screentime and story this season, they really needed it. - Hopper was a sweetheart and I loved that he ended up adopting Eleven. - I still appreciate and love how close-knit the Byers are, and how that’s in contrast with the Wheelers, who seem like they don’t actually care about one other (but still do, in fact) - I liked that they introduced new characters and I liked that professor whatshisname, who helped to get will out of the lab wasn’t a bad guy. - I loved the dynamic of episode 3-4-5-6 and episodes 8-9 were amazing too. - Nancy dancing with Dustin was the sweetest thing. Downsides: - the plot was pretty damn predictable at certain points, but whatever - there were a couple things I would have liked to get an answer to. So how did Dustin’s mom find out that Mews was dead and accept she had to get a new kitten? Did Aunt Becky have anything to say about Hopper’s adopting Eleven? Did she even find out where she’s gone? - Eleven’s storyline was a complete mess. She went from lost puppy to complete brat to lost puppy to badass to brat to badass and Back to lost puppy again. She was completely all over the place and I disliked her most of the time. - the Kali stuff was so out of place. I get what they were trying to say but the message was rushed, it should have been distributed throughout the whole season and not squeezed into a single episode. - The Billy-Max story was a really raw and underdeveloped attempt at a nod to #bullyingisbad Television these days is all about promoting popular hashtags. - and then Bob... my god. I have such ambivalent feelings about this. I mean it was a nice try. But I can’t get past this flashing image in front of my eyes: Janet, What’s a plot device? / Hello! A plot device is Sam in Stranger Things! - how OLD are these bloody kids? Why do we have to end the season showing they all have romantic relationships/interests and kiss at the age of what, 12?

    Would you rather?

    Dothraki Sea. Would you rather eat locusts or a bowl of brown?

    Would you rather?

    Gift. I think cold agrees with me more than heat does. Or you know what. I'll take whichever is quieter. Would you rather give the Ramsay Bolton or the Cersei Lannister treatment to loud and drunk college students who don't let you sleep?
  9. 6 and then I was pretty generous. I mean it was better than the previous episode which was one of the worst episodes of the entire series. And I stupidly and insanely generously gave it a 5, so this had to be a 6. There were basically no enjoyable scenes in the previous episode. There were a handful in this one. I liked the walks to the dragon pit, I liked the moments of silence (this show would be so much better without dialogue), I liked everything about Euron, I liked the demonstration with the wight. I liked he negotiations, I liked that one exchange between Jaime and Daenerys. The Hound vs Mountain thing was okay, Brienne and the Hound was pretty damn redundant imo, but it turned out okay. Pod and Bronn were sweet, Daenerys and Jon hiding in a nook and chatting was the first decent scene with those two, they were kinda cute and they talked about substantial things. I also liked the confrontation between Jaime and Cersei and Jaime riding off, I liked John Bradly's facial expressions and I liked the fact that they used the ice dragon at least. AT LEAST the plot crawled an inch forward. And I liked that they at least attempted to pull off plot twists which were only semi-predictable and almost satisfying. Other than these, the episode was unworldly dumb, often boring or underwhelming, sometimes atrociously and offensively ignorant and lazy.
  10. I was mostly okay with season 5 except for the Dorne plot. Season 6 was damn rocky with one or two solid episodes and handful of visual highlights and two exceptionally terrible episodes. Characterization, common sense and previously established legal and economic frame of the context were all thrown out of the window for the sake of internet popular "ideas". Season 7 went deeper into this wood and at this point I doubt there's a way out. The show is about nothing but fanservice and internet popularity and a shallow take on trending ideologies. Every single character is a one dimensional caricature of their previous self or the exact same internet hashtag, the plot fails to make sense even in its own right, the dialogue is mostly bad, the acting barely any better, and the overall vibe is that creators and cast and crew are all sick of the show and want to be rid of it with as little effort and as much money as possible. They are making amateur mistakes in the writing which could all be evaded if they spent more than two hours coming up with the plot. I really don't think there's a way back from here.
  11. Yeah, that's a positive approach. I'll try to think of it that way. as for finding back to its initial strength... I've been hoping that would happen for a couple years now, but after this episode I must say there's just no coming back from here.
  12. Yeah that was an awful decision, especiallly that he knew full well he wouldn't finish the series before the show catches up with it. Of course he couldn't have known that d&d have the writing skills of a fourth grader. It won't be forgotten, but it has no value. It's popularized crap. It's a cheap cliche to make the masses happy so they pay for an hbo subscription and buy lots of merch. My only question is, do the actors realize how bad it is? Because most of them seem like they don't, and that's probably the saddest. Or maybe they do they just don't care, it's s job, they became millionaires, who cares the show is nonsensical bullshit? I mean how else do you justify the absence of a mighty, powerful, all knowing seer in completely crucial events? Bran has never been so useless. He doesn't do anything. He could as well have stayed lost or died. He doesn't provide any new information, he doesn't interact with other characters, he doesn't do anything.
  13. I wouldn't denounce it, I would have written the books and shown them how it's done. But I agree with you about everything else.
  14. Yeah, damn it, what the hell was this episode? This was worse than the last episode.
  15. I gave this a 5 and I don't even know why because there were barely enough redeeming qualities for it to hit even 3. Tormund acted the shit out of this episode. 1 Dragons 1 erm... that's it? Why did I give this a 5? Thoros and coldhands died 1 (even though Beric and at least one other named character should have too) okay we are at 3... erm... erm... erm... no. I can't. It's 3. Everything. Literally everything was wrong with this fucking episode and this is the first time in the history of my fandom that I'm asking myself, do I want to watch season 8 at all? I can't even say the visuals were great because there's only so much you can do visually in a barren landscape covered in snow. The visuals was Drogon. And that other nameless dragon going down, but who cares about that. Littlefinger makes no goddamn sense, Arya is a psychopath, Sansa makes no sense, the beyond the wall scenes made no sense, Tyrion made a little sense (+1) which made no sense in the frame of the show and literally nothing else happened, because we just watched people walking in the snow and talking for half the episode. I have no words for how bad this was as an episode. If I watched the 2-5 minute scenes as separate entities on YouTube I would say they are great, because the dialogues were mostly good (beyond the wall, at least, the Winterfell needs to be a silent movie) (+1 = there, I was soooooooo forgiving and good hearted I managed to scrape together the 5 points) , but if you try to link them to make a whole it doesn't work. where the fuck is Bran, Euron, grey worm and Missandei? Is Euron camping in front of the rock and Grey worm is eating dead Lannisters inside the castle? Missandei is on a spa weekend month, and Bran is I don't know what the fuck Bran is doing while important shit happen around the NK and in his family, probably watching weirwoodnet porn. and my god, the plot armor of these characters.... will they all live happily ever after or what the fuck? The death count is 3 nameless extras, the most disposable of the least important characters and that random plot device on a horse who shows up to save people once a season. And an ICE BEAR? a fucking CGI ice bear? My god I have no words. On the worst GOT episodes top list. I mean can it get any worse? I know, I know. It totally can.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 705?

    About all that. Cersei already had 4 children on the show. She tells of a black haired baby that died shortly after it was born. It's never confirmed as a lie and the acting doesn't suggest it is either. 4 or 5 what does it matter?

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 705?

    It's been established that Loras is the heir, so there isn't a Garlan or Willas in the show. There's Margaery's cousins Alana though who made fun of her for looking like a pig, married a handsome lord, had darling children and lives in a castle by the sea. Maybe she was a cousin from her mother's side.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 705?

    Admittedly that makes no sense at all. But that made no sense a few episodes ago and this episode they were consistent with a bad choice they made earlier. So that's something, I guess? The sensible thing for Randyll to do would have been to join Olenna the moment the other Tyrells were gone, march to KL, remove Cersei and have Olenna name him successor as lord of the reach. There aren't any Tyrells left anyways. But no. Randyll sat and watched and then went to KL when Cersei summoned him... no sense.
  19. RhaenysBee

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 705?

    Because they were fierce and brave and semi-consistent and they stuck together and I liked them. Nobody has to agree they were the best people in the show, that's just what I thought.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 705?

    This is possibly one of the lowest ratings I've ever given. In fact I only recall giving a 4/10 to one episode before. This was a pathetic excuse for a game of thrones episode. I can barely scrape together enough redeeming aspecta for a 4. I liked Jon petting Drogon because I'm cheesy. And I liked Arya calling Sansa out on being a conceited, powerhungry, selfish shit with superiority complex. And it was nice to see Sansa call Arya out on how her idea of solving problems is killing people. And I liked Randyll Tarly and Dickon being the best people in the entire show for their last 5 minutes in the world. Everything else sucked.
  21. MIND.BLOWN. I'm not saying this episode was perfect - far from it. But it was insanely impressive and entertaining and had me clapping and squalling and laughing out loud, so the least it deserves is 9/10. Which is what I rated it. I liked the Winterfell stuff this episode, we got a little more insight on what's the deal with Bran (which I still don't get, but he was less insufferable than before which is a plus). There were quite a few problems with these scenes but I generally enjoyed it so whatever. I am so happy with the fact that they are resolving the debt the plot and paying back to the Iron Bank. And I'm so happy that the attack on High Garden got some context. The scene with Mycroft was a little too long, but it's okay. Dragonstone... mixed feelings. I like the JonxDavos bits, I liked the DaeneysxMissandei bit, I liked when Daenerys lost her shit after hearing about the Reach and that she called Tyrion out for coming up with the worst plan ever. What I didn't like was JonxTheon, very unsatisfying and underwhelming and badly acted. And let's not even talk about the horrid cave scene. Terrible on every level. I loved that Bronn is back, and Jaime was pretty good in the reach scenes. I also liked Dickon, we'll see if they do something with him or his character development was for nothing. The Field of Fire was mind blowing. Even with the fact that half of it was stolen from the Hobbit. The Dothraki charge was insane, Daenerys flying in was insane, the destruction was insane, the Bronn bits were insane, the cliffhanger was insane. The one general issue I had (aside from zero concept of time and space and lack of logic, which I have had to come to terms with over the past couple seasons) episode wasn't very balanced. It was a little all over the place and with the big boom at the end. As far as the plot goes: And I can't believe they are going for the Jon/Daenerys ship. Why. Why. Jon and Missandei. Jon and Yara. Jon and Lyanna Mormont. Jon and Sansa. Jon and ANYBODY. Daenerys and a random Unsullied now that she knows they can do things, many things. Daenerys and Jorah. Daenerys and Tyrion. Daenerys and Gendry. Daenerys and ANYBODY. ANY random pairing is better than Daenerys and Jon. Sansa is a bitch. (And before anybody complains that I shouldn't use that word for a woman, real or fictional, let me add) Tyrion is a bitch too. Meera is leaving, I hope she doesn't return. Does Bran know that's a Littlefinger betrayed Ned and he's just playing with him, or he didn't get to that part yet, because he was busy watching Ramsay porn? Why can't he see who sent the catspaw? Why doesn't he know important things when he supposedly knows everything? It's pretty obvious that drogon will be fine and I can't decide if I want Jaime to survive or not. It would be a classic game of thrones shocker like Ned or the red wedding or something along the lines. And it would be quite interesting where Cersei's War would go without him. It would also be quite interesting how Tyrion's allegiance would be influenced by such event. But i guess we'll have to see what happens. and then there's the cave scene which I'll leave for the R&R thread.
  22. Quite surprisingly, I gave this a 9 (even though it was a solid 8). For two reasons. First, I gave the first episode a 7 out of generosity, the second was better so I gave that an 8 to be fair, but since this was better than the second too, I have to give it a 9 to be consistent. Second, I enjoyed watching this. It was fun, it made me laugh, it had some really good stuff that outweighed the really stupid stuff. I collapsed in front of this episode after an awfully long and hard day and it entertained me. That's all I want from this show. I don't want it to be books level, I just want it to be enjoyable in its own right and for me this episode was enjoyable (maybe because I was that tired) The first 10 minutes had me crying with laughter. It was so awkward and funny. And that worked so much better than if they had tried to make it all solemn and serious. I was glad that Sam was successful even though the Oldtown scene made no sense whatsoever. Euron is a clown, I love this character. He brought color back to a palette that's so deadly boring I could barely take it last season. Of course it makes no sense for KL to cheer him (unless it was common knowledge that Ellaria poisoned Myrcella and the KL citizens have some inexplicable reason to hate Yara so much), but oh well. I loved that Cersei went full mad king this episode, it finally ended the debate of whether it's gonna be mad queen Daenerys or mad queen Cersei. Also, I generally find Cersei terribly boring but she was somehow good this episode. Tyrion is a complete idiot but his scenes with Jon still worked because they brought back all the season 1 feels. I really liked the narrated rock attack, it was a very very good idea, even though the rock looks awfully underwhelming and for some reason they are trying to make us believe that Tywin built it, which is complete bullshit. What else was there? Olenna went out like a Rock Star. Gemma Whelan, Indira Varma, Nikolaj CW, Pilou Person, Tyene Actress and Lena Headey (who I hate as Cersei) acted the shit out of this episode. I didn't mind Theon, though the scene was pretty redundant, Theon himself is pretty redundant at this point, he should have died in the battle. And I also didn't mind Varys and Mel. Mel served as an okay plot device to bring ice and fire together even though that's an entirely incorrect observation. Based on what we know so far, Mel brought Ice and Fire and Fire together. Jon is part Fire, he isn't just ice. So ice and fire is either just Jon, or please confirm there was another baby at TOJ and Daenerys is also part ice. Otherwise, these words are incorrect. And yes, euron can kinda teleport and the arch maester said Jorah could only stay one day. But I was fine with both, Euron jumping time to get to a known location is better than Euron gps tracking Yara, and I'm sure Jorah ended up staying longer than a day, several weeks passed in every other storyline too. The Winterfell bit was ridiculously terrible from the first second to the last. But that was the only part I active disliked. That, and Daenerys's being an idiotic arrogant inconsistent ass. I don't know why they are doing this to her. Is this supposed to be cool? She is insufferable. Daenerys used to be a nice person and Emilia Clarke used to be able to channel emotions. Can we get some season1 throwback in that regard? But yeah, I liked this. It entertained me and there were lots of cool bits.

    How would you rate episode 702?

    I thought they were discussing how Varys had no loyalty to any king and changed his allegiance more frequently than his underwear if he deemed necessary. But fine, maybe it was about Varys.
  24. RhaenysBee

    How would you rate episode 702?

    Well how would you know that? It could refer to anybody including people at dragonstone who may or may not have been there.
  25. RhaenysBee

    How would you rate episode 702?

    Well, it would make a parallel with Robb losing Winterfell, but other than that... the other kingdoms need a lost rock to know that supporting heirless maniac Cersei Lannister who blew up a religious headquarter (with the leaders of two great houses and a bunch of noblemen inside to escape justice) and has no legal claim to the throne, barely any supporters is a lost cause? If that isn't obvious to them now, I don't know what else they need. And what gold? Tywin said three or four seasons ago that the gold mines of Casterly Rock have been dried up for years. It's a miracle that the Lannister army is still functioning.
