    [Spoilers] EP703 Discussion

    I just wonder what is up with Bran? He has become emotionless, almost robotic like. During episode 1 I just thought that he was way tired but, now it just seems to be getting worse. I don't know if it has to do with all that greenseeing all at once. Maybe, he is just becoming overloading & something has to give. Though, he said that he has to put the pieces together. But 1 thing he does know, is that he has to talk to Jon. Littlefinger cracked me up, he was trying to block the other men from getting to close to sansa. Kind of reminded me when In the Small Council in KL, Varys & Littlfinger rushing to sit next to Twyin & Tyrion pulling the chair away to sit as far away as possible. Littlefinger did not like it that the Meaister(sp) was going to go through Luin's Scroll. The look that he gave him, the new meaister is not safe at all. I really liked the show but, this season so far feels like a set up to next season. Just putting all the pieces in place.

    How would you rate episode 701?

    I really liked this episode. It was very good for an opener. 8/10. Not perfect but worth the wait that we had.
  3. I gave it a 9. I think that Battle of The Bastards was better, not by much but better. The jumping from here to there takes me out of it. But, being that the cast is getting smaller(somewhat) & locations are done ( on Show). We can focuse on the bigger picture & storyline. Winter is finally here, it only took 6 season. The only down point for me was Arya, The Red Wedding was 3 years ago, & too far removed. It didn't not have the same punch that it could have had 2 seasons ago. Oh well, I guess Walder Frey can now devote his time to killing vampires. Thank God, TOJ was put to rest. only thing is that Well, This Lyanna did not look like this great Beauty that Rhaegar who start a war over( a silly point I know but whateves). Great season, with a few bumps in the road. I hope that is all for Dario 2.0 & Mareen, I don't want to see or hear about them again.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 508?

    I gave it a 9/10*. It was so far the best of the season. And that was due to the past 30 mins. The attack on Hard Home was amazing, and made the rest of the episode kind of forgettable. Love tyrion but, I am so over dani right about now. I don't know if it is the actress or how she is being written( some of both). Cersei ( or as Phil the Issue guy calls her THRISTY CERSEI :drool:) Loved her licking up water from the floor. How have the Mighty have fallen. :bowdown:

    [No Spoilers] EP501 Discussion

    I loved the show. I thought that it was a great jumping off point. I could help but laugh at poor Robin, I guess milk doesn't do a body good. What a Spaz. That actor did a real good job. As for Maggie the Frog. Eh, does it really matter that she did not look like maybe, 1 of the children of the Forest or something of that ilk. I do believe that the rest if the flash back will play out later during the season. I won't be doing any spoilers in the review. However, I LOVED how the show ended. this will really set the stage for the Wall. I will say this though. Mance was dead no matter what. He is a brother who broke all of his vows, there was no way that the Knights Watch was going to let that go, Stannis or no Stannis, King or no King. He would have to pay one way or another. Then there was Mel( if the Knights Watch did not get a hold of him), & that is all I will say on Mel. Poor Brienne & Pod, they can't catch a break. Always a bridesmaid, never a Bride. Love to see how Dani( Also, Iike Cersei) isn't as smart as she thinks she is. & Another stupid move by her was leaving the dragons again, she should have stayed until they calmed down. Did she really think that they wouldn't be pissed off. But, what does she do, RUNWAY. Anyways, Loved the show, CHANGES & ALL. :cheers:. A lot of Fat needs to be trimmed & we still have 2 thousand page books to go & only 2 seasons left. D&D have stated many times, they know the end game. They are just going to be taking a shorter route, to make sure that everyone who is invited to the Party at the end of All Things, Is there. We will still have the books. :drool:
  6. I gave it a 9. when actually it should have been a 8 or maybe, 8.5. The thing that brought it down for me was the Greyworm & Misandei/ Misandei & Dani stuff. They could have used those few min toward the Battle. I hate to say this, but Dani has been getting on my nerves sense season half way through season 2 ( same for the books). Both her acting & her character period. I just think that her story doesn't translate well from book to screen ( same can be said for Bran, though bran's story is still much better) Everything else I think was good. The wall was the build up toward next week.

    How would you rate episode 405?

    I gave it a 8, pretty solid episode. It had a bit of everything, Action, Character bldg., & lots of foundation laying for the rest of the season. I do wish that we were able to see the Wolf brother's ( Ghost & Summer) reunion. That would have been nice, they hadn't see each other since they were puppies.. I can't believe that we 5 shows away from waiting another year this show to come back. They really need to up the budget & season for this show. Hell, other shows who don't have the Ratings of GOT or the acclaim get longer seasons.

    How would you rate episode 404?

    I love picking Books, Movies & TV shows apart ( that is just me) however, I don't have strokes when things are different from book to Movies/TV. Just as long that the changes aren't too far off the mark. I do like it when changes are make, because then it gives me another version other than the 1 I already know. Something else to think about. Thinking OUTSIDE of the Box is always good. If people are upset about the few changes in the show ( laughs) just wait for the next few seasons. I see a lot of stuff being omitted ( do to DRAG) from the book. This series has way too much info for a 10 shows , 1 hour episodes series each year. Frankly with all the ratings & such that this show brings, I think that they should get a Much bigger budget & the show expanded to 1.5 or dare I say 2 hour show. We do after all get cheated a few min at the start & end of the show. I can't believe it we are almost at the half way point already. DAMN.

    How would you rate episode 404?

    I to love the new arc with Bran & Jon, kind of a play on the Araya almost getting to her mother & brother from last season. I think that also with Bran growing so fast they only have but so much more time with this actor. Remember, hordor is suppose to be carrying bran around on his back in a basket. This kid just shot up over the past 2 years. they have about 3/4 ( maybe) seasons left to this series. He will outgrow this part for sure. Unless GRRM jumps ahead a few years. I have a feeling with Araya they may do the samething ( though I don't see Massie outgrowing her part, she seems on the short side). However, I can see them dumping a lot of her story line also. They may hit on the boat ride here & there. I think depending if WOW is out yet or not, they may just hit on a few key spots & then proceed to the bigger story of the book( meeting up with Sam, etc....)

    How would you rate episode 404?

    I thought that this episode was great. I also really liked the changes that they did with Jon/Bran/Hordor/ect. I am a book reader & I find the fact that they change this great because, I then don't know what is going to happen. Frankly, I think that they did a great job with Bran & co. his story is a great read however, it will NOT translate to tv well at all, Walking in the wood would be like watching paint dry. I think that we all know that Bran & jon probably will not meet up. They all will get away during the fight. I just wonder about Ghost & Summer, how will they get out ( they will probably both end up saving Jons life again. Summer did it before). I like this change from the books. It gives me something while waiting on the next book. I do have my order in for GRRMS & Elio Garcia's book coming out in October. I also, like Margery & Tommen's storyline. I thought that it was great. I heard that Ser Pounce was a pain to work with. I think come next year we will have a new Ser Pounce, or we will see boots instead. :cool4: I gave it a 7, but it should have been more a 8 instead. I love that this was a Character driven episode. I do love the action/battles on this show. However, I do love the planting foundations for the story itself. & this show was about building for the up coming arcs in the story. Sorry, but I could really go without seeing dani at all. I was such a fan in season 1 & half way through 2. I see her slowly turning into her BSC Father & Brother with power. Ser BS tried to warn her a few times but, she can't see past her own need for revenge & hate.

    How would you rate episode 403?

    I have to agree. It was hard to follow the last 2 shows this week. The show started out great, & moved along very well. Like many others until Sam stuff just fell way short ( meanwhile the Wall other business was good). I have been so over dani for the past 2 seasons it isn't even funny. Her Birth right Blah Blah Blah. JM even told her that her family came over & took the throne from that king, not unlike Robert B. Who ever gets there & wins it, it belongs to them until the next. But, her Mother of Dragons & her birthright speeches has turned me off. & I think that, is what suppose to happen. She seems to be getting full her herself( Which is what a King/Queen usually does). But, without the killing of children, she seems to have the Targ mental issues, just to a lessor scale right not. As for the rest. My Fav of course: Tyrion & Pod. Good God, I started to tear up. I know come next week I will probably be in full Crying mode :(. Him sending pod away because he knows that Pod too is also in danger of getting killed because of him. He is truly alone ( except for Jamie), I think with the show they may have fixed a problem for me from the books. A certain person turns on him from out of no where & for no reason. Now, with the show you can see why they turn on him. The Jamie & Cersi thing Eh, whatever. At least we did not see her MB. I did not know what to make of it. She kept saying no & this isn't right however, she was hugging & kissing & such. Again, whatever. Tywin, Mr. Badass. He knows that Kings Landing & His family is in much trouble & needs help. In order to get that help he must give up his PET. I also , loved the fact that he stepped right in & took over Tommen from Cersi ( being that she did such a wonderful job with Joffrey). I think that Sansa is finally opening her eyes, but she still doesn't see. Finally we get to see some WW action come next week. In the end, I don't think that there will be any Iron Throne

    How do i find or read sample chapters?

    That is where I have been getting my Chapter readings and GRRM Official site. However, My Youtube has been acting up lately. Stating that I have no Flash Player or need to install 1. Some Videos play & others don't. 1st it started with my computer at work & now my kindle. Have to try my home computer( which I rarely us now because of my new Kindle & Phone Samsung G). Is anyone else having issues with YT?
