    [Poll] How would you rate episode 610?

    This goes to 11 for me. A top five all-time episode. Too much I loved to break it down now. For the jet-pack quibblers, the show does not specify how much time elapsed between Varys leaving Mereen and arriving in Dorne, and then his return to Mereen. Just because Varys is shown on the screen in Dorne and then 15 minutes later in Mereen, does not mean that only 15 minutes passed in Planetos. Could have been weeks on either leg.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 608?

    OK, so we know that anyone who likes the show "is being paid by HBO", is "seriously stooooopid", and needs to "die" - all actual comments from our brave, oppressed Hater minority. Only they have the moral and intellectual right to attack and malign fellow board members. I gave this one a 7. I can tolerate very little typical TV drama, but there was nothing I hated in this episode, and a lot I liked. I was entertained from beginning to end. At no point did I think I was watching bad TV or have an urge to switch over to any other programming.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 607?

    Spot on! I gave this episode an 8. It was over very quickly, with the only wasted screen time being Yara/Theon. The Waif was clearly looking to make Arya suffer a slow, painful death. The Hound and the Blackfish are back in the game!

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 606?

    Gave it a 9. Well done across the board. Combining the Coldhands and Benjen characters into one was necessary for TV purposes, but has no bearing on who is who in the books. The Tarly household played out well. I liked the Randyll casting. He was enough of a nasty hard-ass. Looking forward to Waif meets Needle: "Say hello to my little friend". Thankfully no Littlefinger.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 604?

    I gave it a 6 - my lowest score of the season. Show Littlefinger has to he most irksome and unbelievable character in the series. He needs to go to Dorne and hang with the Sand Snakes. Some things I liked in the episode, but the show is better when LF is not in it..

    How would you rate episode 602?

    Gave it 9/10. Loved Tyrion and the dragons, Euron, Arya, Sansa/Theon/Brienne, WunWun, and especially the failed resurrection. Did anybody notice how the camera came back again and again to the black, lifeless jewel around Melisandre's neck? Clearly she and the Red God had lost each other. But as Ghost awakes and rises, we see his eyes flash bright red. The next thing we hear is Jon Snow's gasp. Melisandre was not the agent of Rhollor. It was Ghost. I thought that was a terrific way to handle it. If Mel's ritual had succeeded, this (as a television scene) would have been nothing but corny. My point of issue was the Roose assassination. That was less than well done. As soon as the Meister announces that it's a boy, both Roose and Ramsay had to know that one of them was a dead man, but with infant mortality high in Medieval societies, Roose may not want to kill Ramsay off immediately, only to have no heir whatsoever if the baby dies. Ramsay on the other hand has total incentive to act immediately. I thought Roose would send Ramsay off to attack Castle Black, so as to buy time and lay the groundwork for Ramsay's imprisonment or demise. Ramsay clearly was not going to rely on Roose's "You are my first-born" prevarication. However, the realities of TV production might have demanded a quicker ending to the Roose/Ramsay conflict. GRRM will have the opportunity to write a different story, as he might also for the resurrection.

    This episode raced for me. The Mel reveal at the close of the episode was dramatic enough to wipe out any momentary quibbles I might have had (I do have a toe in the BR+SS=M camp). I am glad we have an exit from the Dorne mess from last year, which was an embarrassment. I gave this one a 9. I enjoy the show for what it is, which is better than 99.999% of the programing that has appeared on television over the time I've been alive, and better than anything else on the tube now . I don't watch this show with the intent of bashing it on social media and calling for the death of anyone who likes it (you know who you are).

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 505

    A number of the plot-lines I was concerned about seem to be back under control, though in ways I might not have expected

    10 of 10 for this one. Loved the Bolton family dinner, and especially the stonemen/Valyria/Mormington pastiche.

    How would you rate episode 501?

    8/10 I liked it other than the Loras/Ollivar overkill and the illogical Mance/Jon byplay, as noted on the Spoilers review thread. All the major plotlines are now pretty much diverged from those in Booksteros.

    Lots of class, Anarchosaurus Rex Telling anyone that liked the episode to "die" I liked it. So fuck off.

    How would you rate episode 409?

    I only gave it a 10. It was so disappointing because there were minor, inconsequential differences from the book, and Stannis, with another separate battle scene, and with all the lead-ins required for that, doesn't show up until next week. Stupid,

    10/10 Fantastic television. Every scene worked and left me in tears (I'm a guy). To those demanding LS or CH, neither will work on TV and you will see neither in season 4. Get used to it.

    How would you rate episode 308?

    I gave it a 9 - the only quibble was the wedding/bedding scenes being a bit clumsy. TV Daario is a huge improvement. Loved the heads rolling out of the bag and the Hitchcock reference in Sam the Slayer

    How would you rate episode 307?

    An 8. I especially liked: - Orel's move on Ygritte - Jon Snooze better wake up! - Arya running into the Hound - Everything the Kingthlayer says and does - Brienne making Jamie promise to keep his vow, knowing she was a dead woman walking - Both Boltons - even Ramsey with the soccer horn - Bron keepin' it real - Da Bear and most of all, Danaerys and her righteous dragons Not so much: - Rob Stark and Talisa. Jayne Westerling would have made a lot more sense - Shae's misplaced jealousy. If she actually was a whore, she should understand the situation. If she's actually some foreign princess (or a sand snake), she needs to tell Tyrion - Bran not moving
