Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans
Wow. That was probably my least favourite episode of this show. Really stilted and poorly spliced together - not to mention a handful of quibbles that I felt would have captured the theme better.
Biggest complaint would be the daylight, open for all to see, yet ignoring Sam, Others. What the hell? Way to take the in the shadows, attack by night big bad and lay it out for all to see. Don't get it, don't like it. Just know they are going to skimp us on the entire fight at the Fist of the First Men, having Sam stumble in with everyone dead or run off... just like most fights in this show.
Ah well, see you next season.
Mest - yes. Rob got Roose Bolton to send his bastard son and men in to rescue his brothers from Theon. They didn't decide to do the scene - read the books.
It's amazing to me that, unlike in the real world, people on the internet will wear "everyone thinks I'm a moron" as a badge of honour.
