Haha! To be honest, I actually read the books up to the start of a dance with dragons, and watched up to season 3. After that I was "yeah, I'm done with this now".

It's just that not everyone else was done with it either.

so did you catch up to episode 5 yet?

Yes.

Finally, Iím up to speed on GoT, just before the last episode.

Kinda wondering WTF is going to happen in that last episode.

Feel like Ep. 5 was a pretty drastic heel turn that some folks arenít going to be happy about, but it was visually goddamn incredible.

I hate Jon. Jon is a dipshit. If he ends up with the throne in the end I will puke.

I vote Tyrion at this point. Not a true heir, sure, but I say let him have it!


I donít want Jon to go.

I like him. Heís thick and stupid but I love him, and heís sharper than he used to be.

I also donít want harm to befall Tyrion ó who, depending on what happens, might end up sitting on that chair made of swords if he doesnít die.

Iíd be OK with Danyís death at this point.

Hope Arya doesnít save the day again. That would be lazy and boring.

Revisit once the hype has died down. I think itís worth it.

right? dusty arya! ha ha ha damn that was WAT.

khaleesi was always bananas, although they made it too heavy handed, and that does not make for the best drama.

the FUCKING ABSURD moment is previously, when they behead her main girl missandei on the wall and she's standing right before the whole army and cersei does not bother turning her into a fucking pin cushion with all the scorpions and archers there! i mean... what da fuq was that scene...

again not asking for moronic logic, but the show has been telling me "who are you gonna believe? this arbitrary story or your own lying eyes?"

in retrospect, clegane bowl was also kinda funny with the darth vader face

anyway, it's just teevee...

Saw this posted in my dayjob's company slack and it's just too perfect.



It contains visual spoilers for anyone who hasn't Seen GoT S8E5 yet. There's no show audio, just Metallica.

GoT, based off of the books, was deeply subversive television.

GoT based on D&D's TV Trope thick-shit skull minds is plain old TV.

Itís not plain old tv. Thereís been some epic shit in the post-books seasons that shits a giant dragon shit all over Walking Dead or whatever the fuck.

Obviously the writing isnít what it was, but Iíd argue that visually, some of the showís best moments have been post-book.

S8E3? I mean... FUCKINí WHOAH WHAT

Then S8E5?! Fucking WHAT WHAT WHAT?

Hiroshima in Kingís Landing.

Itís not like this kind of thing is a dime a dozen on tv or anywhere.

Still not as good as the truly great dramas of the era, like Breaking Bad, The Leftovers, Handmaid’s Tale ... but pretty goddamn good.

OK, fair.... I just couldnít think of another long-running spectacle-type show to compare to.

The fact that Walking Dead is probably GoTís biggest competition in terms of sheer cultural influence probably says plenty about how the show stacks up to other things on TV (i.e. it annihilates them).

We all agree itís not at its best, but honestly it had NO RIGHT to continue to be even remotely good. The fact that itís got some of the best and most cinematic sequences ó and, indeed, entire episodes ó on ďTVĒ is really quite impressive, given the fact that everything after season 6 has been one big fat experiment in what the fuck to do when youíre adapting a series that the author canít be arsed to complete.

One look at the Battle of the Bastards, or the last minutes of season 7 (zombie, dragon, wall, OMG) or literally any episode from this season proves that more thought and time is still being put into this thing than most other shows get at their best.

*shrug*

If it is shorty, itís GRRMís fault. But itís not. Itís just got a lot of Dunkirk-type moments now. Action sequences are top fuckiní notch.

some stuff that's been on the telly these weeks:


- Young Sheldon season 2
- Agents of Shield season 3, it's the best season so far.

- Eurovision Song Contest. Oh My God, why is everybody singing out of tune on top of their lungs!? They should provide free earplugs!! The Dutch song is the favourite this year, which is a first since the seventies. But even that song is boring as fuck
- NBA Playoffs!! Come on noone is watching this you US folks? Curry vs Curry. Who wins? Curry of course! Eastern finals will probably be more competitive than the Western, and Durant isn't even playing
