Game of Thrones, does no one care?

Post by WildGorillaMan »

Frankly with both Banshee and Game of Thrones running concurrently this year, I don't know how much I can take.

And, just to get this party started, here's a bunch of ladies dissecting S6 E1 (warning: spoilers) from the ladies' perspective.

I'm never clicking a link with that description. Going to be a good season, though.

Okay...just an observation...If I was Sansa, I wouldn't be so thrilled that Brienne of Tarth has pledged her service. What's her track record? Renly- dead, Catelyn Stark- Dead(at least on TV), Arya- Missing (although we know where she is), Jamie Lannister- lost his hand. So even having killed the hound, she might not be my first choice for a corner person.

And since you brought Banshee into it, it'll be a tough choice at the Emmys this year for "Best Corpse in a TV show" between Lili Simmons and Kit Harington.

I heard they're doing 2 more seasons, but they will only be 6 episodes each. Lame. I'm guessing it's so they can film it all at once because the actors want to be done and move on. Or they're planning tons of CGI dragon/battle scenes which eat up their budget.

I'm still on the fence about starting to watch this show. I liked the books, but since people are telling me that Barristan the Bold (the only character that I care about except for maybe Brienne) is dead, I'm not so geeked up about starting to watch it...

I didn't want to believe it, but the show has started to suck this season. Speeding things along too quickly, more cheesy, more predictable, worse dialog now that they're not going off Martin's writing. Expect it to get worse if the next two seasons are only 6 episodes each

I never doubted it.

This past episode was much better than the prior one, which I thought was a dud. It gives me hope that the final episodes of the season will go hard.

It would be awesome if the Hound gets the chance to stand up to his brother The Mountain... And then gets destroyed in a one-sided contest.

A minute into that and I was reminded that the best sound out of a woman's mouth is usually sucking sounds.

That was a pretty good episode. Heavy on the foreshadowing though.

Here's the thing...there are not a lot of throwaway protagonists anymore.

Arya wasn't one of them yet.
