    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    10, it only for how much better I thought this ep was compared to the rest of the season so far. Things happened, Plot lines moved forward, and best of all, parts of so called Heresy was confirmed

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 603?

    I give it a 5 as in very average. That is mostly because I hated the 2 ep before. I get the feeling they are doing 2 things this season, and only 2 things 1. They are pretty much burning away/blowing up in storyline that is not directly involved in the story they want to tell. Some of this is because like GRRM, they had too many storyline going and the rest because they have backed their selves in to a corner w/ some of the characters being completely in the wrong place to do anything w/ the main story from the book. 2. I think they are stalling, until GRRM gets the next book out. Why else would they go back and add the Iron Is. storylines back in, after dropped them the last couple seasons.
  3. The revue posted on page one, is pretty spot on. It is great, but I only watch one or 2 at a time. I have seen parts of both Hunting for Pablo, and Killing Pablo over the years. This is kind of half drama, half history docomentry. I like how they have added in real pictures and clips w/ what they shot.   I would complain that the should have either done it all in English or Spainish ( I don't mind subtitles, if a show/movie is good) because half the time, the translation is either going way to fast to read, or to slow to see what is going on. My spainish is basically limilted to knowing how to cuss somebody out, and a few other things you learn from working in a kitchen w/ mostly 1st gen mexican/amercains. Even I noticed how what is said, and what it is showing said aren't the same things.   That being said, this is a very ingaging story.

    Well about that ep, yea, some lose threads laying about, but a fun, action packed ending. I think I had the idea about what was going to happen down, and they have set Steven Weber/Brain Markinson (how many shows is he on now?) seems to be the "Bad Guys" for next year. The thing with the cure is that Ravi said there was 1 maybe 1 and 1/2 doses, and she used 2 doses and doesn't know what will happen? Clive sending someone for Major seemed like a Dick move, but I guess good Police's work.

    She also played Bullet on "The Killing", on the Scream show she actually gets a real name. When I saw her on it, thought it was kind of a small role for her, But I think that who/what killed her will be the big/nasty for next season. I think Anders will be done, one way or another, next week.

    I miss hit zombies coming back to life, was thinking that 1. he licked up some of her blood, 2. that she cut him in to little pieces with the boat motor, so are they going to little undead pieces floating around the lake. Didn't the guy from group tell Blaine flat out about the Zombie problem, so now he really isn't in the dark. I really didn't like his character at the start of the series but it/he has grown on me other the last few weeks.

    When I think of Anders I think of that crappy Children of the Corn movie. There are a lot of Canadian actors who have found niches in the Sci/Fi horror genre

    I think the last scene showed what killed that victim, I like the show, it seems to has a lot of places it can go. Not sure it will be fav's but I will keep watching to see where it goes.

    How would you rate episode 410?

    I gave it a 10, but really it was a 9.5/9.3 IMO. Most of what I didn't like, is nitpicking. I have said many times that there is no way that they could cast all 200+ speaking parts, and the fact they have nearly 40 cast members + support cast is amazing. Since they had already had the scene in the "inn of the crossroads" and didn't give him the wound, they had to have him fight someone else. Brienne is the only major character near him, and one of the few that could be able to defeat him. Also having the 2 non knights fight, when they both are just trying to look out for Arya's kind of felt like a GRRM storyline. When I saw it predicted before the ep came out I was like WTF, but after seeing it, it played out very well, but still think it would have been better if he had "died" earlier in the season, and that her last scene should have been arriving at the church of B/W. JoJen paste debate aside, having him die there did not seem right to me. While all of the Wall/ Stannis/ Wildling scenes seemed very well done, there were just to many of them for this one ep. Varys getting on the ship w/ Tyrion instead of hiding in KL, is not only wrong, but changes much of what should happen next season. The only non-nitpicky problems were both of Jaime scenes. They were too short, too simple, and each played out completely wrong. 1st the Cersei scene, she basically took the wind out of his sails, over rid his growing distrust of her, and gave in to the part of him that still wants her. Ironically, IMO this played out like the way the chapel scene after Joff death should have played out. I think this scene should have shown how much distances has grown between them, and his defending of Tyrion, and her condemning should have increased the distance between them, and one or the other should have stormed out of the room. Which would have lead nicely to his 2nd scene, w/ Tyrion. Jaime not trusting Cersei's growing insanity, and wanting to protect his brother, choses to help Tyrion escape. He did not go into it pure of heart, but w/ frustration and distrust for his life, his choices and his family. His attitude angers Tryrion, which leads to them arguing w/ each other, and to Tyrion looking to confront their father. By continuing to show the brotherly love between them, It changes Tyrion's mind set. An already angry Tyrion, seeing Shae, and then killing her makes sense. ETA: The only way I could see them being able to bring Lady Stoneheart into the ep, would be the telling of slow Freys story, and I just don't see them spending that much time on him.

    [Book Spoilers] EP405 Discussion

    1 Most of the Magic from Westeros is left off the show, no Patchface, Coldhands, Ghost of High Heart, or the Black Gate and we have yet to hear rumor of a certain Lady. Least not forget that Jon, Rickon, Arya and Sansa don't appear to be wargs. I would think that they leave out the CoTF expect season 4 last ep is name some like "the Children" 2. Well the actress did pretty good job of acting like that in season 1. On the show it is more then she is "less dumb, and bitchy" They play her like a victim, you don't get how much she has done to others, or how truly awful her plan are ( both as a plan, and what she wants to do to others). At least IMO Book Cersei never really cares that Joff died. Much like Tywin view of Tyrion's being w/ whores, its about how his death make her look, and what she is suppose to do. It only get worse at the next one.

    How would you rate episode 405?

    The biggest problem w/ that theory is he left the Reeds behind. Unless Jon and Co lost, they would know that someone took off w/ Bran, and at least one of the NW would be able to track him down, not only for taking Bran, but for deserting the NW. It doesn't seem like a good idea. His only real choice would have been to kill them all, and then let the blame fall on Karl and his boys. 7, couple of nice moments, but nothing really good other then Craster;s .

    How would you rate episode 403?

    Yes, I misunderstood what he was saying. It would be Ratings (how many people saw an ep) and Rated ( what people gave it as a score) Ranking would be where an ep was listed against others. At least IMO.

    Show Jaime doesn't know about the others (not sure if any of them have happened on the show) but this is suppose to be a turning point for both of them. I agree the power dynamic between has been slowly turning, from this point on Jaime doesn't see her the same way, Sex is only a small part of it. I believe that this show tied 3:1 w/ the highest ratings, most on HBO since the Sopranos final.

    How would you rate episode 403?

    I am going to try very hard not to step in any of the big piles of shit, that surround this rape topic. I did not see anybody else bring this up, or post a link (I didn't read all 17 pages). I read a article from one of the guys behind the scene. He was going on how well the scene went, and how he thought it played straight w/ the books, in that Cersei fought it at the start and then gave into it later in the scene. I kind of saw what he was saying, but w/o Cersei saying the words she said in the book, it did not come off quite that way.

    How would you rate episode 403?

    I give a solid 6. And think that is a good thing. This was a completely a set up ep (which GoT has not done much of), and it really needed it to be one. There are many turns in most of the story lines, going forward, and they did a solid job of setting things up. They also did not try to go too big w/ this ep, and that too is a good thing. Sansa/LF, Arya/ the Hound, Tommen/Tywin, Tyrion/ Pod, men of NW, Dany and Wilding were all well done, (even w/ the messed up Thenn). Each storyline did what it was needed to do and did not try to over reach. Sam/ Gilly was a bit too much, too soon, and took more time then it needed at this point. I still hate all of the Dragonstone storylines. They should have already happened last season, and doing them now just doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Davos did what he needed to do in ep 1, and they could skip this, and do other things that need more air time. I am on the fence w/ the Cersei/Jaime. It might be the most brilliant thing they have done, but it just feels wrong. The have in short order flip-flopped them. It makes some sense, as show Jaime has not learned all that book Jaime did before this scene. They have had the riff between them, and it has been growing, but is the moment between them. I think they can now move forward in the story, w/o having to change anything they have already set up. It might cause some problems in a few season, but nothing anytime soon.
