    You feel bummed out that they didn't like it? Fine. People start calling them cunts, saying that they are just critics who risk nothing (they risk more on this podcast than anyone involved in creating game of thrones), or trying to dismiss their view as some psychological disturbance? Not fine.

    I, for one, really appreciate the guys, their point of view, and the fact that they treat their listeners honestly, giving their sincere opinion. If what i was getting was some focus group tested lukewarm opinion set to appease the child like listeners who take anything other than unqualified enthusiasm as a personal affront i wouldn't be a member.

    I think the complaints about the North being independent and nobody else are a bit overblown. 

    Theres a a lot of benefit to being part of the Six or Seven Kingdoms. Trade, currency, travel, etc... It’s the same reason countries have joined the EU today.

    You give up some self determination and I suppose you can say they should have debated it more but all these kingdoms have been unified for generations. So being affiliated is the default for everyone already. Sansa’s the only one we know of who’s been making noise about leaving. 

    Also - Master of Whisperers is just the spy chief right? That’s the way I read it. Whatever Bran is capable of, the position needs to exist, no?

    That goes against everything the show has shown us. Robb declaring independence was depicted as a big deal. A big deal that upset not only the Lannisters, but Renly, Stannis and Dany. And then not only do they get independence by just saying so, but the Iron Islands, who have wanted to be independent for just as long, go "you go ahead and do you, we'll stay."

    Why is it that the people who liked the finale of GoT take any criticism of the show so personally, that they have to turn to name calling when someone says something negative?

    Funny thing is that Dexter was trending on Twitter tonight, in case people were wondering what this finals is being compared to.
