    Game Of Thrones

    before you go to download the next episode, i'll just let you know the show has jumped the shark and officially has turned into a shitty softcore porn. saves you the disappointment.

    killing off important main character Barristan and keeping that sackless side character Grey Worm just so they can play this completely contrived romance storyline is fuckin garbage.

    how stupid and ridiculous Danaerys has become is dumb also. in the books she's naive but her actions no longer make sense. she went from "i don't want my dragons to kill people!" to actually forcing them to kill people. storyline was better when she was manipulated into marrying Hizdahr, not choosing to marry him. her character is no longer consistent.

    Jorah Connington...

    also, show Dorne but they don't even go to Dorne in this episode. show is getting sloppy.

    Series 5 is becoming intolerable. Too many unnecessary changes. Selmy has a big role to play in the books to come. It's a worry.

    Plus the dialogue has become cheesy as fuck now. The show treats the viewer like an idiot, unnecessarily drawing out the "emotion" of the characters and signposting the obvious far too heavily. Flibb might need that heavy handed narrative to help make sense of what is happening in the plot, but most of us don't.

    yeah, i liked the last books, because it finally started to break down wtf the entire world is doing besides just what is happening in Westeros and Mereen. you finally realize how big and fuckin crazy the world is. why do we have to see Ramsay talk to some low born nobody whore that he fucks? also, Stannis taking all of his men AND his family to war? makes zero sense, his heir and himself in the same place? that makes it very easy for his entire line to get wiped out in one battle. Stannis is smarter than that in the books.

    i don't like how they cut entire storylines out, and then add parts of the storyline that happen to people who aren't in the show to characters that are. why play out the stonemen part where Jorah gets the greyscale? it's fuckin stupid. if you're not gonna have the Aegon storyline, then just cut the entire thing, don't give Jorah a meaningless part of that storyline. not to mention how shit the sandsnake storyline is, they don't even have enough sand snakes to do all the shit they do in the actual plot.

    Loved the last Episode, we caught up with the books in Cerseis case and will probably conclude the season with Jon because hes furthest behind. I would like some news from the youngest stark kid because hes gone from the books.
    The fan service with "Aeg, egg" for the ones who read them, did anybody here? I didnt because im not 12 no more.

    Did I tell you guys how much I love this show? It has become so much better than the books. The last 2 books become worse and worse with every episode. 11 years were summoned up in less than a season. A shitload of unnecessary characters were scrapped because they added nothing.

    how do you know the characters they cut are unnecessary? also, the show is still very stupid, it's just the best of the season because of the action sequence at the end. most of the story though was unbelievable but at least they didn't have a ton of scenes that didn't move the plot along.

    i don't think you pay attention to the show because a lot of the show is just made up sex scenes and meaningless repetitive violence.

    Shireen getting burnt up didn't really effect me, it's how fuckin shitty the characters were. they wasted how many scenes on Stannis being fatherly to her in the other episodes and seasons then all of the sudden is all good with burning her alive. Stannis' wife has been a disconnected cold hearted cunt to her daughter the entire show and all of the sudden now she's all against burning her alive? okayyyy. Davos constantly stood up against Melisandre and constantly tried to be the voice of reason for Stannis, but all of the sudden he just leaves Shireen a fuckin wooden deer and leaves? that fuck knew what was about to go down, and he was ok with his king committing one of the worst atrocities you can commit in Westeros.


    where is the fuckin character's consistency HBO? you fuckin shit ass story killers. also, i can't believe Jorah touched Dany with his fuckin leprosy ass grayscale hand. unless there is some validity to Targaryens are resistant to diseases she's fucked. and what the fuck was up with Dany holding hands with Missandei in the middle of that riot? was that some kind of lesbian orgasm that activated her secret dragon whistle?


    Dorne storyline is completely fucked and transparent as fuck.


    the more i watch this season, and finding out it was GRRM's idea to have Stannis sacrifice Shireen, i think he's purposely making the show turn to shit so people are more eager to read the books because the show is not satisfying in the way the books are. everything is too rushed and obvious, i feel like the show treats the viewers like we're too fuckin stupid to connect the dots so they just smash through the more intricate storylines by making them short and obvious as fuck.

    yeah, character consistency helps a lot to keep a show interesting. i was pretty annoyed last night, but then again, many characters do many inexplicably stupid things in that show.

    Ok, season is over and Im still happy.
    I just really didnt like the last 2 books. Im looking forward how they will rewrite prince Dorans storyline and Victarion finally stepping up.

    it was ok for me. the "big reveal" was predictable because of how they shot scenes of Ollie in other episodes. i think the last book wasn't action packed but it had a lot of interesting and intricate plotlines open up that they killed in the show.

    if they don't do something really cool with the Dorne storyline i'll be disappointed. the way Prince Doran had unfolded his master plan was fuckin awesome. but now he doesn't have Arianne or Quentyn so his master plan is ruined unless they come up with something more interesting which i highly doubt. look how cheesy they had Myrcella die, the fuckin kiss of death? really?

    even show Stannis died like a bitch and Melisandre finally is found out to be full of shit.

    no way is jon snow dead, melisandre is going to revive him. why else show the revival last season (or whenever it happened), plus this gives him a convenient way to leave the nights watch as he died.

    if he stays dead permanently that's shitty writing.

    i hear some people think Jon is going to warp into Ghost, i don't really see why that would happen since it makes no sense how the fuck would he be relevant to the story as a fuckin wolf. i don't think Stannis is dead either, and i don't know why they cut off the Sansa Theon jump off, because obviously they didn't die either.

    i also hope that ring that Danaerys took off isn't a "bread crumb" that Jorah and Daario find, that would be a fuckin cringe worthy moment if that happens. unless she took it off so the Dothraki don't think she's married to some other dude or something, i don't know but i think it'll be a bread crumb.

    Victarion probably won't turn up, and if he does he'll probably completely different to the books. Although, the rumour is that he's a bit of Loras.

    sams cleaning scene made me gag and look away.

    Euron grew on me. He had the insane part down.

    You guys got any ideas how Jon will get Dawn, the meteorite sword from house Dayne?

    Bran sees where it is and tells him.

    Euron better get to doing some heinous shit soon if he's supposed to be the next villain

    Ramsay and Joffery did some crazy fucked up shit pretty early on in their villain careers and they had whole 10 episode seasons

    Its in Dorne. Edric Dayne isnt in the show, I wonder if we get spoiled of Jon with a burning in the show or if it will be a generic one.

    The show doesnt make me look forward to New episodes but to new books which will not be released this year again.

    i don't even think they're going to do that storyline. i think that sword he's already got is just gonna be the default dawn.

    That counsel scene was sad. A bastard instead of Arianne representing Dorne and Asha/Yara instead of Victarion.
    The scene with Cersei and her Necromancer was a waste too, I hoped that he would work his magic again and give us skeleton dragons.

    While Euron was the highlight of the episode they could have given us some fanservice with him wearing a kraken helmet.

    My boys from the Golden Company might be in it after all.

    Am I the only one here rooting for Cerseis side? Euron, Jaime and Bronn are much more likeable than all those fags on Daenys.

    The show has given Dany too much plot armor. I wasn't even slightly worried that Jamie might shank her.

    Also, how fucking deep was that creek/pond that he fell into? Jesus.
    I balanced all, brought all to mind,
    The years to come seemed waste of breath,
    A waste of breath the years behind
    In balance with this life, this death

    i don't think you were supposed to be afraid for Daenerys, i think you were supposed to be afraid the dragon was going to end Jaime's miserable life as a cuck to his own sister. even Tyrion wasn't worried about Daenerys, he was worried about Jaime during the entire scene.

    i didn't even know that shit was a creek, i thought it was a mud puddle or something and was like wtf? when he started sinking into what looked like a fuckin ocean. where are they fighting at? Florida? that's a sinkhole if i ever seen one.

    *Shrug* I enjoyed the last episode. Maybe I'm the only one who did. But Ray Donovan is back on, so GoT has to take a back seat.

    the last episode was great, but the episode before where Euron was literally everywhere in the fuckin world at once was pure shit writing, just like how he arrived in King's Landing begging for an armada and then BOOM 1 day later this fucker has like an entire navy.

    it would imply this, except other people's story arcs conflict with this "time lapse" so it can't be.

    I don't know if you're aware of this or not, but Game of Thrones isn't based on a true story.

    That's not the issue, plot problems that defy common sense are. No shit they are fucking up the plot and dialogue, they are past the books now. This is what happens when you transition from carefully thought out dialogue by the author over years to what a team of directors cooks up in a year. I don't care I have no expectations. I'm waiting for an undead dragon to melt the wall and for the inevitable jon fucking his half sister like a good inbred targaryen

    Lem is spot on.
    The show moved from a faithful adaption of the books, to a guilty pleasure to finally some mindless fun where you turn your brain off and enjoy the pretty pictures.
    The 2 main actors, Jon and Daeny, are terrible and absolutely lucked out that they spend all their budget in S1 on Sean Bean. I dont think they will have much a career once the show ends.

    She isn't his half-sister, she's his aunt. And how are you guys missing some of these details? He had the armada before he came to Kings Landing, that's what happened in the time that transpired after he asked the Ironborn to 'build him 1,000 ships.'

    Agree 1,000,000%. Was so sad that they ommitted Victarion and Roqorro from the show, he was always my favorite Greyjoy and I loved his story arc.

    what? Yara and Theon stole most of his ships before he even went to King's Landing.

    Tyrion pointed out that they only stole a fraction of their fleets. Euron still had the vast majority.

    I love the idea of a white walker'ed dragon melting the wall. That's awesome.

    Have you read the books? There was never a pre-determined amount of time between chapters, books, etc. I'm pretty sure the show adheres to these same principles. Do you happen to know how much time elapsed between those events?

    yes, but the entire world progresses at the same time.

    the books are able to do this because we're looking at it from strictly 1 characters point of view as each chapter. so the chapters work as windows into specific points of view during specific times. they're not linear progression.

    the show is a show, so it's linear progression. they don't have enough episodes to play with the time. they just have to lay it out straight. they have like 9 episodes left.

    the story is too complex for them to finish it this quickly so obviously they have to shit all over it in order to get it out there.

    Wasn't big on this episode. In no way would I have thought Tyrian would return, run into Jamey, and just leave again all in about four minutes.

    Q.E.D. ?

    That's not true, if my comment wasn't understood.

    Gort had me delete his full account, so if you posted in any of his threads you lost those posts.

    There are only four posters. Wouldn't be hard to use the ignore function on the two that bother him.

    Right but he can't remove his entire association from this place. I completed his request for a database purge of his history. There is no way that I saw to keep threads he created.

    I thought you meant in a general sense. I can't recall them using memento style chronology or anything like it so that's true. there is this:

    The creators of the show have already said that the timelines of different places is not in sync. Some places move forward in hours, some in days and some in months.

    Writer Bryan Cogman, who wrote episodes 6 & 7 of season 6 had this to say

    The timelines between the various storylines don’t necessarily line up within a given episode. For instance, the ‘Northern Tour’ Jon and Sansa embark on would probably take a couple weeks, but Arya’s storyline over the past few episodes only spans a few days. We realized a while ago that if we tied ourselves in knots trying to make all the ‘story days’ line up between all the characters the momentum would suffer.
    I scrolled back up and re-read what you said. I think I agree with you. The show decided it would be too hard to handle this so they basically don't bother to address elapsed time between scenes. I don't remember the show well enough to know how far they have strayed from each scene being next on a linear timeline.

    all i'm saying is Euron's part in the beginning episodes were stupid because of how quickly he was able to go to King's Landing, talk with Cersei, then go out and capture Yara and Sand Snakes and make it back to King's Landing before anyone else even knows or does anything.

    BUT i understand they have only 7 episodes or whatever in this season so they have to forgo some realism in order to just get the plot setup so they can finish the story up next season that is also shortened.

    Related; I told a chick at work Monday morning that Tyrian died. She looked at me and said, "Ah man what the FUCK?! Why did you tell me?! I haven't watched it!" She said this right in front of a superviser who was walking past us with his daughter and later got her ass chewed for it.
