Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Also, I'm not sure if it was mentioned, but a few episodes back when Renly and Stannis meet, I loved this moment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I40tnoYRFrY

I don't think it was in the books but it made me chuckle.

Bronn's advantage was also being unnoble in his manner (victory at the Eyrie). They've also made Bronn far more sauve in this show which gives him more mystique. He was a brute himself, albeit an intelligent brute, in the books.

There were few who could match the Clegane brothers (couple of the Kingsguard, Jamie especially, Briene on some level, one or two of the Night's watch and, of course, the Red Viper.) so I still would say Bronn would lose. But I see how the show makes the case against it.
Pretty much this. There are several times in the books where Sandor is talked about as being one of the most talented swordsmen in Westeros. Jamie (who himself is one, if not the best) admits this a few times. I just like the character a lot, there's a great duality to him. He's brutal and severe, but you can tell there's a heart in there somewhere. His brother on the other hand appears to be a complete sociopath, basically someone you want dead in the worst way possible.

Don't clicky if you haven't read the books:
I'm kinda pissed they killed that Red Viper dude too. He seemed like a pretty legitimate badass, and a manwhore lol.

He's a mercenary brawler who finds a way to survive any situation. I don't mean brute as "big dumb strong" but rather in this sense. And yes, he'd definitely give Sandor a good fight.
Probably scoundrel is more an apt term. And I do definitely like the character, I youtubed the fight scene from the Eerie, very well done, and did the book justice I think. Especially his line at the end lol.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Yeah, the Martells are pretty fantastic all around, especially Oberyn and his daughters. Can't wait for their introduction into the show. Which reminds me - the casting of Margaery Tyrell. Anyone (who's read the books) feel she's too dark, too old (she's supposed to be 16 but is played by a 29-year-old) and would have made a far better choice for Arianne Martell? I'm really not sure how she'll stack up as the show progresses, but she's certainly going to look like a cradle robber trying to marry Joffery.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

On a side note, Ser Barristan should not be nicknamed "The Bold", it should be "The BAUCE". In his prime he could probably beat just about anyone in the current story of Westeros.

I'd put Barristan above everyone currently alive. And above most dead people, too, when I am at that. Names which come as those who could maybe defeat him come with Arthur Dayne, Jaime Lannister, Sandor Cleagne. No joke.

Barristan is awesome. I hope we get more back story on him.

Hell, after all is said and done with the current story line, some prequel stuff would absolutely own. Martin has already laid enough infrastructure at this point. Of course, he is in his early 60's, and doesn't look terribly healthy, so he better get on the fucking ball.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Yeah, he's got a lot of history that is hinted at and not fully laid out - which is neat because it gives a layer to the events, but bad because you REALLY want to know what went down. But if he never lets the history out, I'm OK with it. I am only concerned that the books should be finished and he doesn't Jordon us.

He has apparently given the layout to the show should he not make it. So there's that. Won't be surprised if there is a similar contingency for a ghost writer to finish the series.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Holy shit. Zombies!

Was kind of hoping that the fatty that couldn't run would get eaten. The dragons were kind of cool. Something I don't get though, didn't Rob send those guys to Winterfell to take it back for him? Seems like he'd be pissed that they fucked shit up and burnt everything.

The zombies and the king beyond the wall are my new interest. Also, thought it was really lame that the little girl passed on learning how to be a faceless assassin.

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.

Oh yeah, and I'd like to add - where the flying furry fuck is Ghost?! Seriously... why even give Jon a fucking direwolf?!

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Well i liked it, arya and dragonz and zombies. lol

i had hoped arya would go with the guy to learn new tricks, but she is still a kid, she knows her family is going whack. family duties lol

same with sansa in the previous episode, i had hoped she would go with the dude but nope, she got replaced lol i really thought joffery would stick with her but i guess his mother's influences are still strong.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Yeah I quite enjoyed it, perhaps it skipped around a lot, but still worked well. The Others looks pretty badass, way better than they did in the first episode.
