Game of Thrones....

Recommended Posts

SPOILERS.

Except not really.

That was not only a shitty season finale, that was by far the worst episode they have done in the entire series. How do you fuck up the ending to book 3?

Yeah, I was expecting my mind to be blown. It seemed that it's sole purpose was to build anticipation for next season, and somewhat failed at that.

It was a lot of exposition, and some that was not in the book at all. I think they are going to start next season off with a bang, which is fine by me as the seasons thus far have escalated slowly.

I'm ready for a special wedding feast and some pie :D

I'm just excited to see what happens with Arya. I feel so bad for her. She's been trying nonstop to get back home and everyone she loves is dying around her. I reaaaaaaalllllyyyyy hope she ends up joining the assassin Jaqen H'ghar or something so she can become the little bad ass that I feel that she can be.

I really didn't think it was that bad, a lot of setting up for next season. And they didn't mess up the ending to book 3 because we are not at the end of book 3, this season was only planned to cover the first half of the book as they are splitting book 3 into two seasons.

This, I haven't read the books, but I read that it was not the end of book 3.

I watched all three seasons in 3 days straight D: I completely wiped myself off the face of the planet just to watch Game of Thrones.

I bought the books, but I haven't cracked into them yet. Unfortunately I'm not the biggest reader, so I've been putting it off D:

Also, if theres anyone in this thread who isn't caught up or hasn't seen it, this website has all the episodes: http://www.free-tv-video-online.me/internet/game_of_thrones/index.html There are quite a many ads, but once you get through it, its fine. It seems pretty safe, I didn't have a problem :P

BTW, there should have been more Khal Drogo and Ned Stark <3 they were my all time favorite characters :'(

I get annoyed by her. lol. They make her out to be a brat in my eyes. Always ignoring people and barking orders. Sure she had some bad things happen to her and her own, but there are characters who've had worse (even at her age) who dont seem as... pretentious.

Any Lord Baelish fans? :D

......Is easily one of the best HBO series I have ever watched. What does everyone else think about it?

/discuss

I enjoyed the first season. I have yet to progress more into the series. I look forward to doing so in the near future. :D

Game of thrones has a lot of depth, it isnt a one sided affair, there is no one hero everyone is right in their own way, it is truly one of the most amazing shows i have ever watched

There was one truly heroic person.

The kingdoms had to kill their conscience, Ned Stark, before they could go to war.

Littlefinger has a bit too much of the crazy. Varys the Spider, on the other hand, is my favorite character, hands down. He's ruthless, but conscientiously so. He embodies almost an Enlightenment style of thought, and he is one of the few power players that seems to care about the common people.

Or so it would appear.

Touche.

Given how his backstory is written and how he seems to be one of the longer lasting folks in the series, he's undoubtedly ruthless, but he seems genuinely interested in putting a good king on the throne.

Spoilers ahead

When he murders Kevan and Pycelle, his ruthlessness comes front and center, but in a world like ASoIaF, ruthlessness is about the only way to accomplish any goal, noble or otherwise.

ruthlessness is about the only way to accomplish any goal, noble or otherwise.

This is a reoccurring theme in itself. And I must agree, Varys is one of my top favorite characters. The sheer insight and forethought of Varys and Baelish is their most admirable quality. Littlefinger, in my opinion, just seems to play 'the game' a bit better. I do worry though that Varys' sense of good will, noble as it may be, will get the best of him in the end. The writers have a knack for striking down the Just.

Baelish on the other hand will live on. Just because he's one of 'those' characters. :)

So I got the audiobook for the third book . . . WOW, I can't understand the narrator . . .  It is VERY hard for me to follow him and understand what is going on. I may have to actually read the book.  :mellow:  I'm anxious for the next TV Season, but I suspect we are still about 5 ot six months away.

With the narrative jumping, I wouldn't think this could translate well to audiobook. I am re-reading them again in anticipations of March 2014 for season 4.

"It's not porn, It's HBO!"

 

Try googling that and watching the video if you don't get the reference, it's hilarious.

 

I'm a huge fan of the books and the author and 've been reading pretty much everything Mr. Martin has written to try and pass the time until the next book comes out.  His short story work is fantastic if you never checked it out!  

 

Just started watching this series with my girlfriend cause I get to refresh on the story so far and she gets to lust after Khal Drogo.  Win-win if y'know what I mean?

Ive seen that video, it is funny.

 

I've also read his short stories. He's just amazing with words. I'd marry him. Although I dont think his wife would like that. Unless she's into sharing and all that jazz.

 

I totally understand what you mean about re-watching the show. I think I've watched the first season atleast 4 times... Issues, Issues... with loving something too much. Haha!
