  1. Game of Thrones

    True enough but how much have they lost in syndication potential and box set sales? It may have been one of the most watched (or is it the most watched?) TV shows in history but I'm betting a lot less people are interested in watching it a second time. ETA: Less people? Fewer people? Who's Master of Grammar around here?
  2. Game of Thrones

    Millions of dollars on CGI, millions of dollars to shoot on location, millions of dollars on actors' salaries. And at no point during the last 2 seasons did anyone take a look at the script and say "This is fucking terrible. Go back and write something better and if you can't, we'll hire some who will." It's as if they simply glanced through it and thought "What the f**k, this'll do."

    The bit that bugged me was "Why send Jon to the Night's Watch at all?" It doesn't exist anymore and even if he was being given the task of rebuilding it...why? Who's the threat? Guarding the realms of men is all fine and well but if that's the case, are they not just a northern division of the Territorial Army? Practice with your swords, stay in trim and if for some reason we ever need you to fight, we'll let you know. And by the way, there's no reason to assume it will be near the wall so you may have to travel to where the action is. Yes, I get that he was being exiled as a way of avoiding a war by appeasing-but-not-really Grey Worm who wanted him dead, and the family Stark who wanted him freed. As far as I could tell though, all they cared about was that he went "Far from here." It would've made more sense if they'd just said "f**k off and live with the wildlings and don't come back." He could then spend the rest of his days getting hammered with Tormund and begging wildling ladies to wear a red wig and answer to "Ygritte". And good luck to him.

    Oh, of course. Silly me.

    I'm hoping someone will answer this. I didn't recognise him either. Who is he?

    The people in charge of sacking the people who left a Starbucks cup on set have now been sacked. My sister was bitten by a moosie once.

    When Sansa turned to him for the "I will always love you little brother" speech, I was hoping she was going to follow it with "but you're a wee gobshite, so you are."

    Or Hodor. Right then big soft lad. Carry me all over the place without complaint, let me take over your mind when I need to kill someone, sacrifice your life to save me and then I'll never acknowledge your existence again.

    Oh and the scene of Brienne updating Jaime's Wikipedia page had my inner fountain pen geek screaming "That ink's still wet, don't close the book!!!"

    I assumed Drogon would know not to bother toasting him but was still expecting those teeth to come into play. Still not entirely sure why he got a pass there unless Drogon was able to figure "Aye, she'd gone full hatstand, he did the right thing."
  14. Game of Thrones

    Aye, well there we are then. I suppose given the number of ways they could've hashed up the ending, there was nothing too much wrong with how things turned out. The last half of the episode was pretty turgid stuff though, eh? And I couldn't help coming back to the oft repeated "If you think this is going to have a happy ending..." line. Even when Jon and Big Red were walking out past the (nicely renovated btw) wall, I was hoping there was going to be a big "Oh shiiiiiiiiiiiiit" moment to wrap things up. Might feel different after I've slept on it but at the moment, I'm just kind of relieved it's finally over. ETA: For a truly happy ending though; I would've liked to have seen Grey Worm get hemorrhoids or something. Really started to dislike that torn faced canute.
  15. Your top 3 Comedians?

    I see Jim Davidson has appeared more than once on this thread which leads me to ask, does anyone really find him funny? I mean, really? Or do they just think they're being edgy by claiming to like someone who's entire schtick revolves around "Look at me being all politically incorrect and deliberately obnoxious"? The last time I watched him was a one off TV special, circa 1990. His entire act was a rip off of Spitting Image's political humour (impersonations of Labour MPs based on how SI were portraying them at the time) and listings of people he hoped to offend. "Right, there was this black, lesbian, midget, vegetarian..." and on and on and on...but no punchlines, no jokes, no humour...just him insulting people he didn't like. What was depressing was the next day when people were raving about his performance as if it was cutting edge or something. I kept asking them "But did you really think it was funny?"
