    GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

    Aidan Gillen played the asshole super-stud Stuart Alan Jones in the original Queer As Folk, where he had some really graphic sex scenes with a young Charlie Hunnam.

    I love that adaptation! He's excellent. I just saw How to Train Your Dragon 2, and every time Eret spoke, I was like, It's Kit, it's Kit! (I have a problem.)
  3. OK, I didn't hate it - solely based on the power of my love for Jon Snow and the NW as a bookreader - but it certainly was nowhere near as good (actually fantastic) as "Blackwater." Imo they made four huge mistakes wrt this episode. MISTAKE #1: Pushing the raid from the south to the end of the season. It made no sense, lead to pointless filler throughout the season, and undercut the emotional power of Ygritte's death scene. MISTAKE #2: Not using the rest of the season to develop the characters at the Wall. The only characters we really know are Jon, Sam & Alliser (and one of them is an asshole). It's kind of hard to care about a bunch of nameless/soulless extras & vaguely-drawn bit players. MISTAKE #3: Too much wall-to-wall action without a respite. Without anything else to cut to, the action gets repetitive, and it's hard to keep the momentum going. "Blackwater" had Maegor's Holdfast; this had nothing. MISTAKE #4: Structuring the episode without a resolution. Not for Stannis's sake but for the sake of having a complete narrative, Jon going to treat with Mance should have been about the 4/5 mark, concluding with about 2 minutes of Stannis's army kicking ass. (And mirroring "Blackwater" is kind of the point.)
  4. Much like my boy Jon Snow, I can see both sides. First of all: I agree. This episode belongs to Jon Snow, not Stannis. It frankly pissed me off that the pre-ep thread was like 20 pages (or more!) all about Stannis even when everyone thought he would only be in like the last two minutes. I do love Stannis, but he is really a minor character. On the other hand: Yes, it is a weird structural decision to leave this episode without a resolution. They could have easily started the battle earlier in order to have enough time for Stannis at the end. Most of the build up in the first 20 minutes could have been moved to previous episodes, seeing as they had THE ENTIRE FREAKING SEASON to spend on build up.
  5. Imagine how much more powerful it would have been if it had happened like seven episodes ago, like it should have. Not after spending an entire season barely even seeing Ygritte and Jon Snow barely ever talking about her.
  6. LOL, I'm sorry, but I find the lack of Stannis fucking hilarious.
  7. Wow. Maybe that means they won't have any lines.

    He also plays the same role in both versions of Death at a Funeral.

    I once caught some of the movie The Last Legion on tv, and it was like a parade of GOT actors. Iain Glen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Nonso Anozie, Owen Teale, Robert Pugh, James Cosmo. I became convinced that everyone else in that movie should someday appear on GOT also. (We can start with Alexander Siddig as Doran Martell and Kevin McKidd as Jon Connington.)

    Eh, to each their own. BUT NO, DO NOT WATCH S3. It is awful, and S2 has the perfect ending anyway.
