    [Spoilers] Episode 805 Discussion

    I didn't see it as compassion, just as his last option to prevent a bloodbath
  2. Tyrion was out of options to try and prevent a massacre. It was Jaime's decision to leave Brienne. Tyrion had nothing to do with that.
  3. One of the better posts tonight. Some do not realize that you can love both the books and the series.
  4. I suppose the good news is that so many people are finished with the show we won't have to go through all this whining next year.
  5. Double posts seem to be catching.
  6. For me, that just makes it more powerful.
  7. "A Clockwork Orange" is basically a novella. I will let others debate on the difficulties of adaptation. Can't see where I criticised other people's rankings.
  8. Close the door behind you. Personally I blame GRRM for all this. If he had got his finger out etc. But it was gripping TV. I couldn't tear my eyes away. Of course if GRRM had written the Shireen scene the book people would be orgasming how great it was. Once again you cannot compare the books to TV. If you don't like it, tough. You know the solution. BTW I gave it a ten.

    How would you rate episode 410?

    I would have said some of her scenes with Jaime in series 3 are anything but one-dimensional.
  10. I take it that you have never seen the Die Hard movies?
  11. Gave it a 6. My lowest of the series. I can understand why the TV watchers loved it. Plenty of action, great film work, minimal talking. Great. Sadly the plot development was zero. Wildlings attack wall, Wildlings lose. Wildlings regroup to attack on the morrow. Couple of minor characters killed off. Traditionally episode 9 has to be the showpiece action episode so we got that. Stannis arriving at the end should have closed it off. Now we have a crap load to be telescoped into episode 10.
