    Fantasy and SF Recommendations: Series

    I had never really read fantasy/scifi before ASOIAF, and even gave up on LOTR with the first book when I was a teenager. I am really liking Bakker's Prince of Nothing series so far. Took a while to get into, and the first book was kind of a "when are we going to get to the fireworks factory?" affair, but sitting around now waiting for book 2 to come from Amazon and having withdrawals. Really love the Nansurian Emperor's character, it takes skill to write a character whom I can't tell if he's an idiot or a genius so far!
  2. Anybody know if Argus Filch is coming back as Walder Frey this year?
  3. The Penicillin won't be necessary until sailors return from "Ulthos" (putative America equivalent in the map book.)
  4. What, you didn't imagine that lap dances would be involved?

    To me, the biggest scoop from this episode was that Mel knows that she will see Arya again.

    Ok, can someone please explain to me why Sansa was crying at the sight of Littlefinger's ship sailing away? Also..... ARE YOU HAPPY NOW ROS HATERS? Poor Ros, she was there to help meet HBO's nudity quota, then discarded to let us know that Littlefinger is ruthless and Joffrey is sadistic and evil.... Because we didn't know that already...

    Edric was stillborn... Nice. Also, how can we not assume Talisa is a spy at this point? You should go back to your home and take vengeance on the Ironborn, of course I still don't know where your home is despite sitting here staring at your maps, and I'm not at all implying you need to cross at The Twins... Not at all...
  9. So we can now confirm that Marwyn was not the one who "unmanned" Varys, provided D&D weren't deviating from the script there. (sounds stupid but it's been bandied around on general)
  10. 10/10, I actually like Dany now! Too bad I know it's all downhill from here.

    I guess they need to make sure the viewers remember who he is, so when he winds up being TPTWP/AA reborn, it doesn't seem like it is coming out of left field, or anything.

    How would you rate episode 303?

    So maybe we'll be getting some Burt Bacharach with the credits after episode 9?

    I thought it was also a bit of a nod to the book readers (and perhaps this forum?) that Hotipie's farewell was given WAY too much focus and emotional resonance.

    Soooo..... Basically Locke chops Jaimie's hand during a fit of jealous rage, feeling inadequate next to Jamie's fancy words, and riches, and looks, etc. - and probably without fully thinking out the consequences before he did it? I mean, he just ordered Brienne to be left unharmed in order to preserve her value as a swap, so why else would he turn around and harm Jamie, an even more valuable prisoner?

    His son was killed by Jamie during his first escape attempt, and he's been shown fuming and wanting revenge for his sons - the plural being one that was killed in battle I suppose, perhaps by Jaimie again.
