  • Ya, it's easily the best of the three. And the funniest part is watching all the outrage trolls trying to pretend "it's not even funny."
  • That sounds promising.
  • Ya, if you come to TV for morality plays, this is not the show for you. There are no life lessons here, and no just deserts. It's like Always Sunny; it's fun precisely because of the chaos of competing egos untethered to morality or decency. Rick is…
  • Based on the feedback I was hoping it would be so ridiculously dumb it would be entertaining. But when I tried to get through an episode I dozed off in the first ten minutes.
  • The actors getting nominations for Game of Thrones are all talented people, worthy of an award. But none of them (except maybe Christie) were given anything remotely award-worthy to do this season. If sipping wine and looking moody is "outstanding …
  • It's petty, but I am happy to see some awareness of people's disappointment breaking through their bubble of self-congratulations.
  • If you can't stomach murdering a few pampered children then you'll never be able to crush all the enemies of the revolution that are sure to stand in the way of your progress towards a glorious totalitarian state of privation and despair.
  • Also, how does the US not launch an immediate, full-scale nuclear strike on Russia? If tearing open a demon-gate in the Midwest isn't an act of war then I don't know what is.
  • One thing I didn't like about this season was the end boss. They assembled a cool platoon of zombies that I thought was going to march on the fair, but instead they all just morphed into yet another CGI blob monster. And then it very conveniently mo…

  • I've been rolling my eyes at a lot of the feminist criticism of the show that seems to attribute generally lazy and dumb writing with deliberately underserving female characters. After all, we are explicitly told that Sansa is smarter than Tyrion, A…

  • I don't understand the weird reverence for everyone who worked on the show. Ya, lots of people worked hard and did great work. They didn't do it for free, and having GoT on their resume will be a huge boon to their careers. Why is criticism of the e…

  • The single stupidest moment in the episode was Tyrion telling Greyworm "hey, if we - your enemies-  choose a king on the spot you have to recognize him" and Greyworm, for no reason whatsoever, rolling with it. Why? Why not kill Jon?
  • fleurdelibrarian said: So was Bran an evil force who knew Dany was going to massacre innocent people?  And he let it happen so he could become king?   I mean, what could he do? Jon had enough trouble betraying  Dany after the fact, I don't…
  • That was as satisfying as I could have expected given how botched the season has been. Everything worked out a bit too neat and fan-servicy, but that was to be expected when they kept everyone alive after 803. Overall, it seems like GRRM gave them s…

  • Here's my headcannon for why Dany burnt the city: In Essos, she ruled with love and mercy. But still, she was constantly facing resistance. Love is fickle, and a well loved ruler can suddenly be despised as soon as food runs low or a dragon eats a …

  • Damn, they know how to end an episode.
  • chrisk said: One thing I'll add is that we basically did this to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. She used her nukes. That comparison would work if you nuked them *after* Japan surrendered. The USA demanded that Japan surrender or face total destr…
  • I don't understand either. It's lazy, dumb trash. No reason to get upset about it.
  • Prediction: next week's ep will be called "The Mad Queen," and that's why they've been so careful to keep the titles under wraps this season.
  • DoubleA_Ron said: Soooooo... Arya’s dead, right?  Like none of that bit at the end with her finding the horse and riding away actually happened...? Cause if not, it sure as shit felt that way (to me, at least). Based on this and the Battl…
  • I thing you can abstract it further, and just say that according to the show, absolute power corrupts absolutely. If you can burn all your enemies to a crisp on a whim, there's only so long you can go before doing so.
