    So, uhh, what was with that horse last week?

    Pale horse of death? Nah
    Arya’s dead? Nah
    Bran warged it? Nah
    Just an inexplicably clean-ass horse hanging out in an apocalypse, never to be seen again? Nailed it.
    Maybe proof this season has been The DD's art project and not a storytelling one?

    Writer's Room:
    "You know what feels majestic and artsy?  A partially bridled horse approaching a young woman in a bombed out hellscape!"   

    One person meekly protests to the idea that it should be a bunch of chickens (a sign from the Hound that the Clegane's were done bowling) but they are told to go get more coffee and bottled water for everyone.

    The show title should have been: WTF, Bran?
    I guess the new throne will have wheels so that'll be sweet.
  • 805 - The Bells

    First time in my life I've ever gone into work on a Monday morning with this on my mind:

    "If only that Aunt & Nephew boned more, maybe it would have been a happier ending."

    Thanks for that, GOT.  I enjoyed the BM instant-take (slightly) more than the episode but I'm fully committed to my fan bankruptcy.    If GRRM is going to a similar narrative conclusion, this episode helps me to understand why the books are slow-going.  It is hard to get motivated to tear down a decade's worth of character development, hard enough to kill these characters that become family to you and to fully up-end the world in which they inhabit with fire and blood, ash & smoke.

    Oh, and and Urine Greyjoy shirts with a witty saying or a concert-shirt motif.    Maybe a calvin pissing logo? Anyway..  Get on that and please and take my money.  :)
  • 803 - “The Long Night”

    "The Stream was dark and full of artifacts." 

    Beautiful horror, can't want to see it again without it being downscaled so much by HBO Now.
  • Star Wars: Rogue One (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

    Watched it last night.  I'm more Jim than A_Ron on this one.  I mean, seriously, Mon Calamari, can I get an orbital bombardment capability, please??  

    I'd love to see a remix of Rogue One told Lethal Weapon / Falling Down style from the perspective of Red Five rolling his ass out of bed.  "One more day on the job and it's off to my well-earned retirement, gold watch and cake - here I come."

    Speaking of cake, I liked his Porkins'ness did make me LOL a bit.
