    Naw I don't read books anymore. I prefer to get my fiction in screen form

    Spoilers from episodes that already aired is fine, but anything else is off limits.

    Ya, Claire as Daenerys would have sucked.

    And ya, Jamie earned some serious coolpoints for that scene.
  19. #19
    The guy's a tool. Any man with long blond hair prettier than mine is a tool. Guess I'm the odd one out since the only Lannister I don't hate is the pImp

    Also, 100% guarantee that little cuntbag prince that looks like an inbred is in fact an inbred

    I mean, I don't LIKE Jamie, obv not rooting for him, but I think both his and his sisters characters have moved in a very good direction that gives them some depth that seemed to be lacking at first. But ya, the Imp is a pimp. And ofc that lil queer is an inbred incest lovechild.

    edit: and it makes sense, because the king and queen lost their first child. So that could explain the start of the incestuous relationship... to solidify their power, she needed to produce an heir, and if the king's soldiers aren't marching, who better to keep the secret of having impregnated the queen then her brother? Sounds like a std Lanister scheme to me.

    King is great
    Ned Stark is meh ok, supposed to be the "good guy" but kind of a tool
    Imp is awesome obviously
    Jamie is great for his role
    Women (actresses) in the show are generally disappointing, none of them stand out to me.

    chick who plays daenerys is perfect imo

    meh she averages like 90 seconds of screen time though

    wish they'd move the Dothraki story line along

    whatever else happens, they can hang their hat on the best horse beheading ever.

    who has read the books? My wife loves them but curses the author all the time for not putting out another one so I'm torn.
  26. #26
    yea the beheading was awesome....and the king and the imp are by far my favorite characters, everything they say is priceless.

    I do not like j-lann (cool nicknames are cool) but just the grimey-ness (def a word) of that scene was fucking awesome. Fist pumpingly awesome.

    what scene?
  29. #29
    the final scene of last episode where he stabs Ned's boy in the eye and then murks the nigga who stabs Ned in the leg, just cause he wanted to duel with ned and pwn him himself.
  30. #30
    Good ep. Was the golden crown scene a death scene? Because that shit doesn't happen. All your skin can burn off and you'll still be alive for a little while. It's whatever though I guess. Can't let that kind of stuff ruin the plot. It would be like the horse head chop not having nearly enough blood ruining it

    Apparently, next week ep is already available. No talking about it until it airs though, capiche.
  31. #31
    ugh.. it has "aired"... I guess I'm fine with it being off limits, since there are other places to discuss it, but it's a pretty silly ruling.

    How long before the brain cooks? Thats a 1000 degree liquid metal with a high heat density... I'd bet it would kill a man easily.

    Chopping a horses head off in one swing is more fantasy imo

    HBOgo not having some online subscription that doesn't require having an HBO sub at your home is the silly ruling.

    what.. how are you watching the show, if not with your HBO sub, or torrents? Are there not torrents of 7 yet?

    edit: as to the realism... I'm pretty sure that having a liter of molten metal poured on your head is gonna be pretty much an insta kill. Like rilla said, its a bit diff than just getting burt, the gold is going to hold its heat and pretty much cook the brain. That being said, when it was happening I thought "wow, this could be an awesome character, the used to be pretty disfigured perma crowned throne conspirer..." but it is a bit too fantastical for GoT. Speaking of which, the writers' joke poking fun at high fantasy where Sam shares that he wanted to be a wizard when he was a kid was pretty lawls.

    As for the horses head, he did not complete behead it, and I think it was actually surprisingly accurate, except for maybe the lack of blood. You have to realize that its a fucking giant of a man wielding a great sword... hell I'm pretty sure I could get at least through the spine if I were able to swing the sword at all... that thing was huge. Back to the blood... I really am unsure I believe the amount of blood was wrong. The clip was very short, and it showed blood being squirted.. only the arteries would squirt blood like this, and only the arteries would do so, so quickly. I think its quite accurate that you would be able to see a fairly clean cross section for about as long as the clip lasted.

    My neighbor has HBO. Then I heard about episode 7 being on HBOgo and I thought that's great, I'd definitely pay a handful of bucks a month to watch the next episode plus whatever else HBO has online Netflix style until HBOgo tells me I need HBO... Why would you put a barrier between the customer and your product? I want HBOgo... let me buy that.

    Also, I remember there was one of those Deadliest Warrior shows on Spike talked about a sword to behead a horse and that was debunked quickly.

    Maquahuitl - Deadliest Warrior Wiki

    And samurai had some crazy horse-slayer sword that wasn't ever used for horse slaying.

    Zanbatō - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A total aside, as he didn't behead the horse I guess. Just saying that horses are hard to slice through.

    Good points on the molten metal. I hadn't thought of that. It's a legit death

    Not sure if the show is expressing it as well as they should, but I think the Mountain is supposed to be so huge he dwarfs his 7 foot tall brother

    Question: why did that dude fight for the pImp, then follow him as he left the throne room? I thought he was Lady Stark's guard, not Tyrion's guy

    Torrentday still doesn't have ep 7 up
  40. #40
    demonoid does...PM me if you want an invite
  41. #41
    and i assume that guy fought for tyrion because he knew if he won he would be jooged for life, but idk for sure, sort of confused me too.

    Also it was kind of dumb that his trial consisted of someone battling someone else for him....doesnt seem like a very just way of conducting a kingdom.

    Yeah, I don't think they've been through an Age of Enlightenment yet. They're pretty much stuck in the Age of Badassery.

    I figured since he was so accepting of the fact that he fought dishonorably that he was more a sellsword and figured that fighting for a Lanister meant good pay. How he was in those chambers in the first place, I dunno.

    yea but then that sort of is negated by the fact he was like "COME ON I DESERVE A TRIAL"...i figured theyd just be like....nah thats not how we ride and murder him anyway?! instead of being like....damn his boy beat our boy, guess we has to let him leaves O WELLS

    let's stop trying to make sense of the justice system in a medieval fantasy world. I think the rules are pretty clear, and they aren't that absurd considering in the continuum, dragons are recently extinct and there are undead things that go bump in the night in the snow covered north.
  46. #46
    I'm not going to hijack thread at all, but I will point out that our own justice system is deeply irrational in favor of wealthy people and tradition. I feel like the court scene was excellent writing partly because it was seeped in the reality of stupid justice

    Yeah, but still, philly is on point. Maybe it bows to a more Eastern thinking. That there should be a trial but that lord-judges and champions and honor should be above due process and a jury of your peers.

    I don't really know anything about Eastern thinking in this instance, though. Still, philly, good points.

    They couldn't just murder him, he's a Lannister. What they were doing was already pushing the envelope mega time, and I feel like part of it was meant to show how Stark's sister and that part of the kingdom is crazy

    Which reminds me, why in the shitballs didn't they dye the pImp's hair blond? Family/color is an important distinction they're making. My guess is that him being a drawf makes him genetically acceptable for not fitting the mold
  50. #50
    i mean its not bleach blonde but his hair is definitely blonde....

    and i agree the tulley sister and her little kid tilt the shit out of me, i hope jamie murders them all.
  51. #51
    Oh shit it is blond. WTF am I thinking. I know why I confused that, but just ignore me
  52. #52
    I thought the looney sister and her to old to be, but still breast feeding child were awesome. Someone over on 2p2 complained that it wasn't necc to show the kid breast feeding to drive home the point that they are batshit crazy, but I completely disagree. That clip was one of the best in the show imo... you insta get the "oh snap, this is bizzarro world" feeling.
  53. #53
    Agreed. Whoever said the breastfeeding was bad is a dummy

    That breastfeeding scene was a novel sort of skin-crawling. Just another awesome scene in the short but awesome life of GoT.

    Well, now that I've seen it I'm making an executive decision.

    Beyond this line there will be discussion about episode 7.

    So every scene continues to be awesome in GoT. Except for maybe the North Wall stuff but the creepers are coming, so that'll be cooking up soon.

    can someone clarify what exactly happened at the end....if carcetti stabbed him in the back or w/e then who did he have the kings gaurd fighting for, because they still attacked the queens men? is carcetti just like the lone ranger now?
  61. #61
    ya, I'm a bit confused on this as well philly. I think hes moving to seat Roberts brother or something.

    Speaking of Littlefinger, the actor is doing 1000x better than his first few on screen appearances I think. All I could see was Carcetti at first, but now I am starting to see Littlefinger. I think his semi-monologue with the whores was what did it for me.
  62. #62
    oh yea how awesome was it when robert slugged the queen, and she said "ill wear it as a badge of honor" and he said "if you don't shut up ill honor you again" rofl ...the king is a straight gangster, i am sooooo disappointed that they killed off one of my 2 favorite chars
  63. #63
    but yea, carcetti is definitely doing a decent job. And what you said about him doing it for roberts brother makes some sense.
  64. #64
    Ya, Robert kept it boss.

    Man dude you've read my mind almost perfectly on thoughts about the show. It's honestly weird.

    This is easily one of the best fantasies HBO could turn into a show. The world is much better than any other books I read, except maybe the Rose of the Prophet trilogy.

    I don't like Daenerys anymore. Things were better when she was getting raped

    Robert's death is irritating because he was a good character. You could tell he was gonna go sooner than later, but stories need characters like him and the pImp who keep it real.

    You had to expect it would come to blows between Lannister and Starks over the throne. The idea of the story is much more interesting if it's a three-way battle. There will possibly be a four-way battle going on when winter comes and maybe the things beyond the wall want to pillage

    From the sound of it though, the Lannisters and Starks will fight until they have to join forces against the Dothraki

    I'm gonna stop before I make all sorts of dumb predictions that will be wrong. Show is mega though. Pissed I can't just watch the whole damn thing straight through

    I thought they were doing the same thing they did with final Wire season
  71. #71
    oh and after reading this far in the book, its clear that the guy who stepped up for Tyrion is one of the guys who was at the Inn when they first captured him and they make it clear that they had been "buddying up" throughout the whole ride to the Eyrie or w/e its called. So its not quite as random as i thought. I would still assume the motivation is mostly monetary.

    edit---maybe thats just for HBO on demand which could be different to HBOGO...idk....if you find out though let us know

    I think they just did the ep 7 hbogo in advance thing because of the holiday weekend. HBO is smart, and doesn't want to go up against BBQ and patriotism. 'MURCA, FUH YEAH.

    I think Robert's brother Stannis (sp?) will make an appearance and help Ned out. They alluded to him being a warrior so it'd make sense.

    Season one cliffhanger will be the Dothraki's crossing the sea?
  75. #75
    yea thats def gonna be the cliff hanger, that or the baby being born either way implications will be the same.

    As for the stannis call, its a lot more risky than your end of the season call lol but i like it and could def see it happening, although i think stannis helping out will come if Ned is captured or imprisoned in some way, i highly doubt hes just going to appear during the continuation of the final scene of the last ep but we shall see.

    edit- im not this far in the book yet so i do not know at all.
