  1. anon76returns, on 08 Jun 2015 - 02:13 AM, said: Cmon kids, let's play Count The Harpies! https://usatlife.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/game-of-thrones-bullring.gif About 60 or so in the ring, an undetermined number still in the stands. Based on the arc, the ones in the stands were later throwing spears at the dragon.. which makes an active brain wonder why they didn't just throw those spears at a clearly-visible Dany..
  2. Right, if they got *to* the ships southerly via The Gift, then returning *from* the ships the same way was obviously an option.
  3. If only the visible area were affected, then lopping off an arm would cure the disease. But it was said in the books that a person who sacrificed a limb would often end up with nothing left to chop off, and then die anyway.
  4. 2/10. Brutally bad. Every scene had holes and broken logic.. and the last scene in the pit sparked outright laughter. Jorah, please be sure to manhandle the person you're sworn to protect, so that there is every chance of passing on that fatal disease you have. Harpies.. only one attack at a time, please! No reason to use your numbers to overwhelm a smaller force. And if you're going to throw your spears.. remember, at the dragon only! Under no circumstances shall you throw them at the one person you're trying to kill.

    10/10. Spectacular. This may be the best that TV gets.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 507?

    Could be a temporary antidote.. which locks him into helping the Sand Snakes escape. For either business or pleasure, at some point his heart is going to speed up again...

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 507?

    9 of 10. It was great to see a well-choreographed fight again, and Ser Friendstone looked every bit the pit-fighting champion I expect him to be.. without even killing anyone. I adored the part where he took out the swirling ball-and-chain guy by tossing a sword at his face. Kinda hard to keep the rhythm while flinching, apparently. Sam can take a punch, but he really should have tossed the sword to Gilly. Yes, the Dorne scenes are useless. The acting is bad, no characterization, there's no way those plans could have worked out, and every other reason why the Dornish plotline has been a shambles.. but Lord of Light, Tyene has a sweet rack. Unless Doran has something useful to say to everyone, they may be the one thing.. er, two things.. that justify the Sand Snakes inclusion. Reek is Reek. There is no one named Theon here. If your plans depend on a brainwashed Greyjoy, you're going to have a bad time. Hi, Cersei.. may we introduce you to your new friend (and cellmate), Karma? I know you've probably never met.. the world of GRRM doesn't normally include "What goes around, comes around". But in your case, we've made an exception. One smirk too many, I'm afraid. I hope those "satisfactory conditions" work out for you and that dress. If you need anything.. like a punch to the face, or some hair pulled out.. just ring for the Septa.
  8. 4. Arya +4, Tyrion/Jorah +2, Loras 0, Sansa/Winterfell +2.. and the Dorne scene was worth a series-low MINUS 4.

    How would you rate episode 503?

    It was pretty apparent what was going to happen when Jon sent for his sword.

    How would you rate episode 501?

    No, we heard all three questions. 1. I'm promised to the prince. When will we marry? 2. But I will be queen? 3. Will the king and I have children? It would be kind of funny if, after seasons of avoiding flashbacks, they end up needing to show this one twice.

    How would you rate episode 501?

    6/10. It felt more like an episode 10 "clean-up the plot after all the excitement", which I suppose makes sense because of the way the last season ended without one. Lil Cersei asked three questions. I'm promised to the prince. When will we marry? But I will be queen? Will the king and I have children?

    GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

    Interesting appearance for Peter Dinklage in 2005 "Lassie"... minor role, but at least one very memorable line.

    How would you rate episode 410?

    10 for the great episode. Bonus points for the masterful trolling from Lena.
  14. I have never agreed with the idea that the show was somehow biased towards Stannis. I never really cared for him in the books, and actually notice and like him more in the show (due to Dillane) than I ever did while reading. So the endless and repetitive focus on 'how did this or that affect Stannis' and 'you should have cut X for more Stannis' has been a net negative for me while reading some of these threads. Having made that complete and honest acknowledgement of my own biases.. I will say that Stannis fans got totally hosed by the pacing of the events of this episode. If you're going to devote an entire show to one battle.. show the whole freakin' battle. There's way too much happening next week to toss in a 'by the way, here's how it ended' and expect anyone to really care.
