But I've yet to figure out a better way to spend my time.

Hahaha, I totally forgot how stupid that whole loving plot mess is. Can't wait for all but the last of the Starks and Lannisters to be totally wiped out by the end of this season.

I feel so bad for Areo's actor. He was like the only thing about Dorne they did right in Season 5 (since Doran had no greater machinations). And he had such hopes for his character:

quote:

Areo hasn’t had much screentime in Season 5, and Oparei hopes that’s because there’s more of his story to tell. He felt like Dorne’s introduction this year was “the beginning” of a multi-arc saga, and that was how he played his character. That means there’s the opportunity for both Areo and his lord, Prince Doran, to be explored more in Season 6.

“When you read the books [Doran] is much more of a politically astute mind as to what’s going on in his kingdom and what needs to be done and where the power players are. There’s that hope that as an actor that will come up in next season’s scripts. As of now, I’m not sure. The writers and showrunners keep their cards very close to their chests — as they should,” Oparei says. “I trust in the integrity of their creative minds that that’s going to happen, that that’s going to come up, because Dorne in the books is so rich and it’s such a great story that’s unfolded.”

I've only skimmed the laundry list of new season spoilers in the OP, how reliable do we think they are? Last year's were mostly pretty accurate although I do recall a lot of outrage over the fake spoiler that Sansa ordered Ramsey live.


Any update on the Absolute Fucker front and the book he'll never finish?

Given that the show proofed that it can get huge ratings without a good plot or dialogue over the last few seasons, they basically just need some cheap writers, give them each a chapter of the History of Ice and Fire and tell them to make an GoT spinoff out of it.

I remember the Battle of the Bastards. That was a good episode of tv.

Personally I think the battle did had its cool moments, but overall it was pretty dumb (Jon charging alone at the enemy, the body wall, the cavalry arriving at the last moment, Sansa not telling nobody the cavalry was coming, everyone waiting around Ramsay to commit a last murder etc etc etc). And it was way too long

The only part of the Battle episode that was stupid to me was that Ramsay used his last shot to kill a dying giant while Jon was standing right there wide open.

Like Sansa didn't know for sure Littlefinger was coming, Jon wasn't thinking clearly after seeing Rickon killed, whatever, there's reasons for those gently caress ups.

Take the shot that matters more, Ramsay. That'd have been funnier.

The Battle of the Bastards is kind of just where the show is now. Often dumb but sometimes cool. Which is still a higher standard than a lot of "prestige" TV/TV drama. Like, I'm not watchin Starz (though I do wanna watch American Gods). does AMC still have good shows? At least one? I haven't checked since Mad Men ended.

(edit: wait I completely forgot about Better Call Saul for some reason)

Wart dick is the actor guy in bravos. After arya watches their play they cut to a close up shot of his dick with him asking if theres a wart on his cock.

Eh, but it wasn't his last shot. Unless he read the script and saw that his second-plus shots were going to be successfully blocked, he was going to kill both of them anyway.

I think there was actually a very understandable non-emotional reason for the charge. Either the writers didn't think of it, or they didn't have Jon voice it after the battle.

Clearly? Can you describe your cock identifying credentials, in terms of both length or duration and width or breadth?

I actually like these spoilers I'm seeing, although it feels like a bit of a cop out to kill the sand snakes to please fans. I mean the writers obviously didn't manage to figure out they sucked on their own or they wouldn't have gone down that road in the first place. They probably saw the backlash and adjusted their plans accordingly. I'm glad they're doing it, but lol.

Will watch season 7 with cautious optimism.

I feel sorry for those three actresses. They were lovely characters but it wasn't their fault that they had no story and only differed in their hairstyles and weapons.

I haven't read any of the books but I bet that's exactly how GRRM wrote them right

No they are all pretty different. But all forgettable too and all about Dorne in the books is very very boring

But that's the difference I guess: in the books, the Dorne part is detailed, long and boring. In the show, Dorne is short, fast and stupid

Dorne was just kinda boring rather than cheesy in the books and it has the same problem with almost everything in the past two books, plans are being set in motion but there's very little payoff.

My issue with this is they don't adjust the story for stuff they cut out. So characters end up with nothing in terms of plot or shoved with characters just because..
