I dunno what sort of closure people were expecting - the sopranos ending was pretty appropriate given the tone of the show. I liked it.

We need a shootout with the FBI led by Ralph Ciferetto who's come back from the grave, Paulie Walnuts to charge in out of nowhere to defend T to the bitter end, AJ steps up and believes in himself so he can be a real true gangster, and Silvio fights with the ghosts of Johnny Sack and Phil Leotardo in the dreamscape. Tony dies in the diner defending his family heroically just moments after the governor calls to make organized crime legal again. And when Silvio wakes up he abdicates the throne to Paulie Walnuts and chooses to be his consigliere. Together they usher in an era of peace and prosperity for the state of New Jersey.

I want to see Tony brutally gunned down Sonny style. David Chase is a loving pussy.

You should watch the directors cut. It is 30 minutes of black before the credits roll.

One of her nipples found its way between his lips. It was pink and hard and when he sucked on it her milk filled his mouth, mingling with the taste of rum, and he had never tasted anything so fine and sweet and good.


The best part of the books, Fat Wyman Manderly, is the only absence that really hurts.

I also miss Strong Belwas and The Yellow Whale.

Why are D&D so extremely opposed to morbidly obese characters that poo poo a lot and eat people?

EXT. FILMING BACKLOT, IRELAND - DUSK

A bunch of EXTRAS in medieval garb are being wrangled by a COORDINATOR to some TENTS.
Temporary lights are being turned on as the sun goes down. There's a tired BUZZ about the production
as grips and riggers finish eating and move to set up for the coming night scenes.

Suddenly, a set P.A. runs in.

P.A.
Why aren't they in the corral yet? You've got to hurry!
He's coming. I heard the AD on his phone.
It's him.

The Extras, mostly tired and puzzled, give the young kid a few scoffs and look over at the food tent.

Coordinator
poo poo! poo poo, that's today? They should have told me,
these guys aren't seasoned enough. I need more time.

P.A.
You aren't going to get any! Can't you hear the car
coming? Can't you hear its strains and groans?
He's almost here. And he hungers.

So, here's my theory: HBO doesn't believe that GURM is capable of finishing a treatment for another show or whatever it is they've saddled him with. The only reason they offered him more work is to interfere with his already non-existent writing. Because they want to finish the show before the books are even remotely done and keep creative control over everything, instead of bowing to his, increasingly more complex and meaningless, canon.

And another thing: it's good they're trimming characters, merging plots and so on. The Fucker should've drawn the line at Jon, Kelly C, max 2 of the Stark children and the three Lannister siblings. And that's it. Everything else is superfluous, if you want to finish the series in 6-7 books tops, or even at all. Stannis, Sam's adventures in Oldtown, Aegon, Dorne, are all completely unnecessary crap weighing down the plot.

I am told that 5500 hundred people visited the House on its opening weekend. Most of them went away smiling... especially the kids, who loved the place... but there's plenty there for adults to enjoy as well.

Our hope is that Meow Wolf and the House of Eternal Return will be one of Santa Fe's premiere attractions for many, many years to come. Come visit when you're in town. I promise you, you've never seen anything quite like it.

They cut poo poo but they also are keeping Sam in Oldtown, Dorne and the Kingsmoot poo poo which all seems to matter as little or less than half the other poo poo they cut. There just isn't a superb logic to it.

I really dont' care what they cut or keep as long as they execute it well, which they didn't do last season

From 2015:

time magazine posted:

The Game of Thrones writer has new projects in the works at HBO and Cinemax

Good news for Game of Thrones fans: author George R.R. Martin, on whose books the series is based, is working to develop three new TV shows for HBO and Cinemax.

The Song of Ice and Fire author confirmed these new projects in a blog post detailing how busy he is (and how little time he has for fan complaints about the show). It had previously been reported that he is working to produce an HBO series called Captain Cosmos, about a TV sci-fi writer set in 1949, with a pilot written by Michael Cassutt. While Martin did not comment on details about Captain Cosmos or the other two shows, he did say he is hard at work writing the sixth novel in the Song of Ice and Fire series, The Winds of Winter, which fans are very eager for him to finish.

The Game of Thrones season five finale airs Sunday on HBO.
