Find Me On:
Thanks! I was very confused during the episode but I knew I could count on some monsters to help me out.
I know I’m late here but…can anyone explain how Stannis ended up back at his castle? I thought last week had a shot of him being held at knife-point by a bunch of Lannister soldiers in King’s Landing?
It rubs the Nutella on its skin.
Can we get wine-drunk Cersei her own talk show, “Cer-Sez It Like It Is”? Or at least get her a spot on “The View”?
Why is it so windy???
One day, our grandchildren will think it odd that there was a time when we didn’t all drive around in a Chinese Lay-Z-Boy.
What will that kid later regret more: that picture or those camo cargo pants?
“Anything to make you smile.”
Ah! I’ve been Qarth warlocked
Yes! I watch it in a bar every week. Not sure if that makes me cool or a loser, but it’s fun!
Is this the new Bon Iver single?
The good news re: the budget — they appear to have gotten a great deal on solid-color sweatsuits.
Yes but was it well-loved?
Every week I think I really should start reading the books but then I remember I don’t have the energy to read several 700+ page books and this show is so great anyway and run-on sentences!
Yes. Who thought this was a good idea?
Right. I haven’t watched the show at all and don’t plan to, but I think the argument about authorial authenticity that Kelly made (unless I misunderstood it) was a dubious one.
It’s impossible for just about any TV show to be “real” or “realistic” for anyone but wealthy, entitled people, because those are the people with the ability to make TV shows. Poor folks generally can’t produce TV shows, hence we have a movie about Indian slums by millionaire Danny Boyle, not an actual resident of the slums.
The problem is less with the people who are producing the shows or movies than with those who claim that they are “real”.
Agreed that the title sequence is helpful for orientation. Really it’s remarkable (and a testament to the strong writing of the show) that I’m not totally lost each episode.
Also, if you look closely during the title sequence, beside each actor’s name is the sigil of the character they portray. I’m sure this has already been noticed many times by many people, but it is still pretty rad!
Is anyone else concerned about the number of different characters/kingdoms/threats that is being introduced each episode? I trust HBO to make it work and each new wrinkle (e.g. that crazy ginger queen, the Iron Islands folks) are consistently fascinating and intriguing but I’m worried about how it’s all going to come together! Guys…?
Also, with all the people getting it in this episode, maybe we should change the name of the show to “Game of Bones”, amirite?
This is entirely unrelated to the thread of conversation, but does anyone know where someone (i.e. me) who doesn’t have cable can (legally) watch Mad Men? Is it available on demand somewhere? I’m not averse to paying a buck or two to watch an episode.
Whoa. Think I just had a seizure.
