    What Do You Do When You Are Bored?

    Oh Shit! I also play Drop7 on my phone which, if you have never played it, is basically the best game you can play on a phone.

    What Do You Do When You Are Bored?

    On saturday I went to see some friends and have a smoke with them, so I didnt take the car. I had to get the train home. Following the 45 minute train ride, I had a 30 minute walk. I forgot my headphones. After having an anxiety attack for about 3 hours, I left my friends house and had to entertain my self on the way home. I thought about the gym. for 90 minutes. Letting my injured hip/groin recover, improving my lifts and generally thought about how much of a beast I could be if I stopped drinking. If I was in the house alone, I would either play on one of the Souls games or read a book. I'd watch a boxset but I usually watch them with my S/O so it would be mean to skip ahead. Anyway, never forget your headphones.

    Tolkien 2.0

    I am actually reading Lord of the Rings for the first time right now. My introduction to fantasy novels was actually the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant I am enjoying it. I am near the end of Fellowship now. As I have seen the films, I am unsure if I will read Two Towers straight after or read something else in between, maybe Mordants Need as I have never read it.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 610?

    I always read the nitpicking thread, I find it pretty over the top and childish, but largely fair and true. However, I really enjoyed this episode and would go as far to say it is the best episode since Rains of Castemere, maybe even Balour (My favourite). I have now read the nit picking thread and I had to stop after a few pages. This episode has finally cemented in my head that the show is not the books, and shouldn’t be judged upon them. I feel that as a stand alone 25 minutes of TV, the intro to this episode was one of the greatest things I have seen (I would rank it up with SPOILERS: The end of season 4 of the Wire, Andreas murder in Sopranos, Stringer Bells death in the Wire). Reading the nit pick thread, which I have enjoyed reading for years, I just felt it was petty and I noticed it was about 3 people commenting, instead of the usual droves. Anyway, this episode is not perfect. Varys teleported around to fast, the R+L=J reveal was a little underwhelming and Arya I cannot stand on the TV show (Story, actress, everything). I suppose if you want to nitpick, you could say Maderly was disappointing in comparison to his character in the novel, but this isn’t the novel, and they probably don’t have time to do that entire story (Which began its set up in the first book) justice, so why bother? Don’t get me wrong, I really began to dislike the show (Around season 4 and especially season 5) and I still don’t think that it is as good as season 1, but I do feel this episode was phenomenal. As I have said, its finally allowed me to separate the show and the books in my head, and its ended me seeking out the petty nit picking things that are ‘wrong’ with it. It feel liberating to be able to separate the 2 mediums if I am totally honest.

    I disagree. He clearly demonstrated his leadership skills by commanding the wall and leading men into battle at castle black. He's then the only man with a plan to end this.

    How would you rate episode 409?

    Lack of Stannis was fine because he doesn't show up until later anyway. All the fights were good. Sam was awesome. All deaths I felt were really sad. Episode captured the hopeless bravery of the men of the nights watch. Grenn was awesome.

    The biggest problem I am reading people having is this: Stannis didn't get his moment and now unsullied won't like him. Which is wierd because Stannis doesn't arrive during the battle of castle black in the book either. He arrives days later. People are saying "but Tyrion will take away from Stannis" etc which to me just stinks of a lack of faith in Stannis himself. Surely a real Stanstan would be thinking "Stannis is gonna detract from Tyrions big moment" Tbh, who cares what unsullied think of stannis? Apart fom everyone here, who seem to really care what they think.

    I wish Stannis had arrived this episode but next week is good enough. Christ the whinging in here is pathetic.

    How would you rate episode 408?

    The burping was stupid and I actually felt bad for everyone involved in the writing, filming and even watching of that scene. It as stupid. What? She's a whore and these are commoners, so burping is amusing? Really? Fuck off.

    How would you rate episode 408?

    I didn't really enjoy this episode overall as much as others this season. I am not feeling the Wildlings at all and I must admit the Wall is boring this season considering it's going to be all episode 9 contains. Missendei and Grey Worm... Erm... I'm not sure about that. I'm not bothered so much as I don't really care about either character overly much. Good be entertaining in the future I guess. The time could have spent better else where. Moat Calin was good. Roose was also good as always. I look forward to Rooses bigger part next season onwards. I thought they were gonna say don't make me rue the day... When Ramsey was all "I won't let you down dad" lol. Beetles was... Wierd. I didn't really like it. Not because it wasn't in the books, it was just boring. "What does it all mean?" The duel was awesome I thought. Great fight. Jorah get permanently FriendZoned was good. Although I thought it was a poor change to make him beg for forgiveness when erm... I thought the whole point of that scene was that he didn't repent? I can't remember any other scenes.

    I know. To each their own. I just though it was stupid and not particularly witty. I love Roose as well. I think a better example of his coldness is just the way he treats Theon. There is no compassion at all.
