    Bronn - Highgarden and Master of Coin? Really?

    It was fun to see Bronn survive it all the way he did....but getting a seat there and then the dialogue in that conversation was just painful. Master of coin...no...
  2. No - this doesn't change how I look at the books or will read them when they come out. If this is the broad ending that was talked about, I think I will be disappointed that Bran ends up as the king but as far as comparing the two together...not really. For all of the stuff that seems to be missed between the show and the books and even within the show itself, I don't look at the early seasons as favorably as I did. This is a bigger, more expensive BSG.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    This is what i was going to say - when SW came out, if you didn't see it in a theatre, you didn't see it. Now I can generally count on 2 fingers the number of movies I have to see in a theatre and what I will wait for. This year was Capt Marvel and Endgame. I might even go see Endgame again before buying it and watching it a dozen times at home.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Getting Sneaky

    Same - I was flipping around and saw that TBBT was on for an hour and took a shot that it was the series finale. Because of one line in there - which really has nothing to do with the series - it will be one of my favorite finales. "Do you wanna" - because that's how I proposed. I hadn't seen any episodes in a couple seasons, but it was nice to see the closure and the final scenes.

    Rant & Rave without Repercussion: Burn It All Edition

    <screen starts out black and slowly lights up as the camera pans above a bed to see two people sleeping with candles on their bed tables> <Ned Stark sits straight up in bed and shakes Catelyn> "Cat! I just had the worst dream! There is something I have to tell you...." <screen goes black>

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 805?

    Not sure how to rate this...big negative for me for valonqar/Jaime/Cersei - the prophecy, the redemption, nah - ignore it all in a way, a negative for the use of the dragon - if they were this powerful, it would have taken about 5 minutes for Dany to go to KL and nuke the Red Keep and then keep going north - most of the innocents who died would not have and the "real" fight with the Nights King would have still happened. Or not because she would have been able to go to the wall and then just destroy everything that moved north of it. so very cool visual of destroying KL, but negative because of the inconsistent writing. Cleganebowl was cool - glad to see Qyburn get killed by his creation. While Sandor was focused on Gregor, in a way not sure why he would have let Cersei just walk past him. I liked the interaction between Sandor and Arya Appropriate how Varys got his end - while I would have liked to have seen him keep on paddling, play on the knifes edge long enough and eventually you'll get cut. Euron v Jaime...not a fan of that; Euron should have been toast from the explosion And just not a fan at all of how Dany has morphed - there is always a straw that broke the camels back perspective, but this doesn't make sense.

    They ruined Jaime once and for all

    The ending of How I Met Your Mother ruined that series for me - after years of tons of reasons to stay away from the ex, he ends up with her. Same thing here, actually going back to Cersei to be with her is just poor writing - and if GRRM ends Jaime's arc the same way, I'll say the same thing about it then as well.

    Exercise and Fitness: bro science debunked

    He put clamps on the inside of the weights? Obviously Luke is the expert on deadlifts, but I can't think of a reason I would want the weight farther out on the bar - if i want a more challenging lift then I'd just add more weight rather than artificially making it harder. @Triskele- one thing I've learned with the tendonitis is don't "do nothing", it might be minimal activity but keeping it moving through mobility, light exercises and daily use will help. But definitely do go see someone qualified about it.

    Goodbye Ghost

    Ghost is going to go off and find Nymeria and her pack, join up and then move south to eat Kings Landing.

    So, Arya and Sansa are evil, right?

    We never did find out about the Horn of Joramund.

    Exercise and Fitness: bro science debunked

    With just those details, it sounds like it could be either tennis or golfers elbow. Mine flares up whenever I overdo pull ups or muscle ups and don't do recovery mobilization, etc. well enough. make sure you are mobilizing your arms from fingertips to traps - before and after workouts. when mine was at its worst I was off of pulling motions - rowing, pull ups, etc - for a couple months to let it recover. A PT definitely could help out - recently i tried dry needling and while it was funky to do, it definitely improved the problem area I was having.
  14. I want to say from a story perspective it should be Dany, but much of the story doesn't follow anyway. I think it will be Dany since Sansa wants nothing to do with the South and really is (from what I remember) the only other potential queen who is still around.

    What if Arya isn't going south to kill Cersei?

    I think she plans on being able to walk away after offing Cersei and go become no one.
  16. I think here is what is missing - years ago, this show was the filet mignon of the airwaves. And it remained that way - different from the books but fantastic television. then...the pre-cook preparation started to get a little messy. the table service started to decline. the actual filet was overcooked. After a while you look at it and can still say yes, I am getting filet mignon...but it tastes like shit and could be used as the sole of my shoe. So yes, I am still getting GOT, but this show is not as good as it had been - the logical inconsistencies, poor character writing, poor decisions around fight portrayals, the list goes on. For me it's not great entertainment anymore - but I have also invested time into the show since 2007 when GRRM announced it was coming to HBO, so I am going to spend another 3 hours to see how they close out the story and then wait for him to eventually finish the books.

    Dragons far to weak

    Agreed - in order for them to be in range to hit them - and where he was hit - the ships had to be in some way in front of the dragons. How do those predators not see something that large out on the water? How did the shooters practice enough to know how to lead with something that big - it's not just Euron, three shooters in a row hit.

    What if Arya isn't going south to kill Cersei?

    She should be...but with the way the show has gone Dany's assault on Kings Landing planning session should have been "put your feet up everyone, Arya - go kill Cersei. Send a raven when you're done - please and thank you."

    Dragons far to weak

    I'm not sure if they are too weak, or since no one really has anything to compare it against they were just assumed to be completely unstoppable. These are only 7 years old, so I can see them getting far tougher as they age more. That being said...knowing that they are on the move in a war, why wouldn't they be flying higher - at least one of them to be on the lookout for anything out there? Even just a pod of whales to eat? Sadly that's just a question of tactics and strategy that the show has made clear isn't even a consideration.

    What is stopping Arya from killing Cersei and Euron?

    She may end up killing both of them...what's stopping her now is that she is in Winterfell. Given what we have, honestly if they DON'T have her assassinate Cersei then it's poor writing - they've given us the info that she can sneak anywhere, can utilize any (almost) weapon, so there shouldn't be any reason that she would not be able to sneak through the Red Keep (that she knows, not as well as Winterfell, but she knows), get into Cersei's chamber and stick a Needle in her eye.

    What was Bran doing the whole time?

    what was he doing? What he needed to do - he knows all the prior times the Nights King has come for the 3EC; this is like Endgame, 14 million endings and only one do the good guys win. How would warging a dragon have made any difference - we saw what they were able to do and not do. What information would he have been able to send that would have changed anything? When you can do anything, sometimes the right thing to do is nothing. He set up the Nights King and it worked.

    Death scene: Jorah Mormont

    I thought it was done very well - he loved her and from his telling her his thoughts on Tyrion as Hand, Sansa as an ally and his stand against the zombies showed her that it wasn't the selfish view he had years before.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    Gotcha - ok, thanks. Makes sense.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    the whole crowd laughed when I yelled "holy shit!!" when he caught Mjolnir. I give it a 10/10 - every emotion, every story line, character development....it had it all. My only question is how did the "normal" people wield infinity stones when we know their power is too great for mortals to wield? Hawkeye specifically has one in his hand, how did he not get nuked? It may have been answered and I missed it, but that really is my only nitpick/complaint for the whole movie.
