Game of Thrones: The Children Review (Article) - 6/16/2014 9:43:14 AM

continued..

Figured Stannis would not show up at the Wall until next season, just due to the logistics of some of the things they changed. Stannis never had to go to Bravos to get money for more fighting men in the books, and while Bravos is not very far from Westeros, think the English Channel, he still had to go there, then recruit and then go to the Wall and a ways west to reach Castle Black. I didn't just didn't see it happening so soon and also figured we would be done with the wall for this season.

I for one don’t think Breane could have taken the Hound, even with his infected neck wound. He is just as big, bigger actually and stronger and no slouch with a sword himself. That was a show only scene. It was kind of cool to show them in the same scene considering some of the crazy theories out there that people have though.

trying to post for a while, taking ddiaz's advice and removing quotation marks and stuff.


I was pretty happy with the finale overall. I think it contained spoilers for me, or maybe it is better phrased that some things I was ambiguos about may have been confirmed. Namely regarding the Mountain and Jojen Reed. Didn't expect the final scene to be of Arya. I was expecting that to be Tyrion shooting his pops. They didn't add the part were Tywin's bowels release and Tyrion says something along the lines of, It appears Tywin Lannister does not in fact shit gold. I think they also wimped out and had Shae attack Tyrion to make his killing of her slightly more sympathetic. I know a lot of people who no longer are as big of fans of him because he straight up kills her in the books.


Gonna have to post in stages I think, it keeps failing on the big one.

Game of Thrones: The Watchers on the Wall Review (Article) - 6/9/2014 12:17:24 PM

batkruse...  I believe I have a good idea of what could be the final scene of the season.   Actually I have two theories.  I can't post them in detail, as that would be a spoiler.  To be vague, I think one could involve a common Westeros saying involving the word gold.  The other possibility I'm thinking of would invovle stone hearts.

Calamity Johnson, Aemon is most definately not Dany's grandfather.  Dany is desended from Aegon the Unlikely from the Dunk and Egg short stories.  Aegon was Aemon's younger brother.   In fact in last night's episode, Aemon stated he could have been king of the Seven Kingdoms but he abidicated allowing Aegon to take the throne.  So I went and looked up a family tree to be sure,  Aemon is brother to Aegon who's son Jaeharys was the father to Aerys II (the Mad King) who was Dany's dad.

About Maester Aemon, reminding us he was a Targaryen.    Think it was after news of the Red Wedding reached the Wall and Jon was going to leave.   Aemon, told of how he wanted to leave a couple times, most recently when the Mountain killed Reagar Targayen's children and raped the Oberyn's sister.    I believe Aemon is Dany's great great great uncle, give or take a great.  He is old.    I think its kind of good that they reminded people, as I'm sure many have forgotton.   Its a lot of names to hear in this show.

I'm pretty happy they actually killed Ygrittte.   I had a feeling the show runners where going to let her live and kind of combine her with another character to trim things up.  The other character should have appeared in the show back when John was with the Wildlings, but it would have just been a cameo basically. 

Mooncrow answered why the Wildlings want to move south.   The White Walkers don't discriminate, they are bad news for all humans.  Mance is a smart guy, he knows this.  I suspect it is the reason he was able to organize all the separate Wildling tribes who don't really like each other into one group.

Hannibal: Mizumono Review (Article) - 5/27/2014 6:59:57 AM

I too was impressed.   Great episode of a great show.  So who survives beside Will?  I can see them killing both Jack and Alanna off, even though the characters are around in the books later on.  I think Jack will probably survive, and Alanna is toast.

Game of Thrones: The Laws of Gods and Men Review (Article) - 5/12/2014 9:44:10 AM

I hope they have the next "phase" of Tyrion's trial next week, but I'm guessing its probably two weeks away. 

Minor irritant that has stood out the past couple weeks.  In season one, they dyed the actress playing Dany's eyebrows to match her wig.  I know its been awhile since they stopped doing it but it has stood out to me more recently.  Is it really that hard to dye them and wash out the dye at the end of filming?  No temporary dyes?  It's weird seeing dark brown eyebrows and that platinum hair together.
