    [Poll] How would you rate episode 505

    I'm pretty sure the DGA wouldn't approve of that.

    How would you rate episode 503?

    No... Roose is a careful man and he clearly disapproved of his son bringing those bodies back to WF. That was the crux of the scene between him and Ramsay. His saying that there are better ways to consolidate their hold on the North than flaying people and then bringing up marriage makes it pretty clear that he'd have those bodies removed in the days of travel time between that scene and the next WF scene in the episode. Cue the expected gaggle of posters' hack "but they just teleported anyways" jokes. But then if explaining a scene as I understood it is just being an apologist for "shoehorning"...I guess I was wrong to think I should intervene around here nowadays. As y'all were. G'night folks.

    There were only TWO bodies hanging there and one lying elsewhere. They all could've easily removed from where they were. Not that LF and Sansa don't already know what the Bolton's sigil is and what their heritage is, of course, but those particular Cerwyn bodies would likely have been taken away from the premises in time for the Vale party's arrival. They certainly weren't visible in the scene itself and Roose disapproved of their being there in the first place, so it follows that he didn't keep them there for too long.

    A show based on this forum would sure be weird. ;)

    [Book Spoilers] EP503 Discussion

    Just dropping by to share this lovely visual parallel that someone made on tumblr of Tyrion pissing in ep. 103 and now in ep. 503. http://ivegotmyneedle.tumblr.com/post/117483874276/1x03-5x03
  6. These should be taken into account. A good many people have left the forum due to the prevailing sense of bitterness about the show finishing before the books around these parts. This same sense, I think, accounts for this marked disparity between critical and fan consensus about 501 and 502's quality too. That and folks trying to counterweight the opinion of many Sullied TV critics that s5 was right to cut a ton of stuff from AFFC and ADWD and is an improvement on them story-wise. ;)
  7. Not if you go to Sevilla. Then you can be the resident Water Gardens expert.
  8. The accent Pascal was doing was a very specific Chilean accent based on his father's (Pascal's speaking voice is an American accent). I've never heard Varma talk about the accent but Siddig said it was that voice established by Pascal that he was attempting. So it was never supposed to be a Spanish accent.
  9. ^Well, between this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZchRZ-HX19U from s4 and this from s5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6Vm9kkcRE8 it strikes me she's doing the same voice. :dunno: As for it's quality, Peter Dinklage's British accent was never very good but his performance as Tyrion has been great regardless. No matter how accurate their approximations of the accent Pedro Pascal came up with are, I still really like what both Siddig and Varma are up to this year. Really, it doesn't matter too much because in-universe these aren't British and Chilean accents, they're Westerosi accents, which don't really exist, so there's quite a bit of wiggle room here.
  10. She was making some sort of accent last year. That wasn't her regular English accent. I assumed she's doing the same thing this year.
  11. Because they both have English accents naturally and last year Pedro Pascal established what the Dornish accent was.
  12. They're Chilean accents, based on the one Pedro Pascal did in s4, which was an impersonation of his father's voice. Alexander Siddig, our Doran, said that what he's going for in s5 is an approximation of that same accent. I have no idea how an accent can be "cheap" btw...

    How would you rate episode 410?

    EDITED: Having rewatched many times, it's now ten.
  14. A welcome dose of realism from Ran. It won't quell the hate but it's good to know you defend good TV.
