Game of Thrones: And Now His Watch is Ended Review (Article) - 4/24/2013 10:49:55 PM

I recognize the actor playing Locke as Stillwater's manager from Almost Famous.

hanso, speaking of boob, it appeared the actress playing Missandie was rather curvy.  I'm pretty sure but not positive I'm remembering correctly, that there are nude scenes of her in the book, so there is a possibility you will get to see "them"

Forgot about Commander Mormont's death.

What is even worse, is unlike many who are sent to the Nightswatch for crimes and such, Commander Mormont abdicated his House seat for his son Jorah and then joined the NW.  Then Jorah went and disgraced House Mormont and ran off to his exile instead of taking the Black himself.

 Jorah is a perv, even more so in the books cause Dany is only like 13 to 14 years old when he is lusting after her there.  I'm waiting for Chris Hanson to surprise Jorah, offer him some cookies and ask him to sit down and then for Jorah to bluster that he wasn't going to do anything and he was only looking out for her.

The dragons will eventually be big enough for a man to ride.  They have already spoken of days past when Dany's ancestors rode them.  The Iron Throne was made from the swords of an army that was defeated by Targaryens riding dragons.   The first season showed some of those old dragon skulls in an Arya scene.

Yeah, they haven't really shown The Bloody Mummers in all their "glory".  I would say while most characters in the show are kind of grey morality-wise, those guys are black through and through.

I had  been waiting for the Dany scenes to happen as many of you guessed correctly what was going to happen.

Since they are changing/adding a bit to Theon at this point I wasn't totally sure what was going to happen, but I strongly suspected that he was taking a nice trip just to end up back on that large X.  For those that look through the episodes closely looking for details, you can figure out exactly which House has Theon.  I'm glad they brought up Theon's culpability in killing the Miller's boys.   I will say in the books, that for a moment I actually thought he killed Bran and Rickon for a bit.  The way it was written was a little more ambiguous than the way it played out on screen.

 

I think a lot of viewers will forget about Jaime pushing Bran out the window in the beginning. 

 

By the way Jarrett, I know I'm nitpicking here, but Khaleesi is a title, not a name.  It would be akin to saying "King had excrement thrown in his face" when describing that scene with Joffery.

I'm curious if Dany starts to lose fans from here on out.  It seems to me  that last nights events was one of the last times I really enjoyed Dany's parts in the books.  I'm not a Dany hater like some readers, but I thought this was where she peaked if my memory serves me correctly.

If Rob is "already over" Game of Thrones, I can only say that thankfully Jarrett does the reviews of that show.

Defiance: Pilot Review (Article) - 4/17/2013 1:16:47 PM

I mainly watched this, because I live in St. Louis and was curious how the city would be in play.   I agree it was a bit "hokey" as you guys have put it.   Still its already more enjoyable than NBC's Revolution which I dropped after about 7 or 8 eps.  Defiance will get to keep its "Record" status on my DVR.  While I don't think it will be a top 10 show for me, it looks like it  can be entertaining. 

 

GAME OF THRONES: Walk of Punishment Review (Article) - 4/16/2013 7:22:34 AM

I never liked Theon from the first time he appeared in the books at the beheading of the Nightswatch deserter and he kicked the guys head.  MrEt, I've read all the books and I kind of think the miller's boys would disagree that he has suffered enough. 

 

As for how big Dany's dragons can eventually get, if you remember back in season one they showed Arya in the tunnels/basement under the Red Keep and she came across the skulls of dragons.  Some of the teeth were bigger than Arya was.  The adults were big enough to ride according to the stories they've told already of the past.   I've also read theory's of show only peeps all over the net of what is going to happen with Dany, and some pretty much have it correct, but some don't.  I don't recall exactly why Dany chose to take Missandei though I have an idea, but maybe she is tired of being around dudes all the time.   But since that actress playing Missandei is pretty hot, I look at it as a plus.

 

I for one don't like how they made Stannis out to be a horn-dog.  I think it was out of his character, he was just as straight an narrow as Ned in some respects. 

 

I also think they made things look like the Wildlings were just going south out of some bloodlust and desire to kill "Crows".   I always thought for the most part in the books that it was shown they mainly wanted to escape the Others and put the Wall between them and the Others.

 

I figured Jaime getting his sword hand cut off was going to take a lot of people back.  Remember that sucker did attempt to kill Bran.  His reasoning was probably that it was Bran's life or his, Cercei's and his incest children's.  He is an example of characters not being totally good or evil but like most fitting in the middle somewhere.

I want to see Ghost reunited with Jon, they kind of teased it a bit with Sam seeing Ghost leaving.   I want to see how it plays out with Orel, but don't think it'll happen next ep as it looks like Jon probably won't be in the next episode.

Some of the story lines seem to be way ahead of where they should be right now.  I think they are adding stuff to Theon's story just to keep him on the show this season.   I think the absence of characters for long periods in the books is a hurdle to casting actors that may just show up for a moment early but then not play a major role until down the road.  I think that is the reason we didn't see Val and her sister when Jon first meant Mance.
