Charles Dance is a great actor and a strong presence in any scene he participated in.
Dire Wolf spotted at our dog park.
Actually, it's just Reggie (80lb shepherd) and Beloux (140lb NewFoundland), caught with his ears raised, but really does kinda look like a Dire Wolf.
Beloux is ONE HUGE but sweet dog!
I love Newfs (and that is a pretty one!), but like most giant breeds they have such short lives.
Did you know that when Tywin Lannister was skinning a stag in an early scene (it may have been his character’s first spoken lines), he was actually skinning an actual stag? And you can see the symbolism of a Lannister butchering a stag (the House Baratheon symbol on their banners).
Same for me, which was quite surprising. It seemed to drag on forever on first watch; second time it really didn't seem like that much time was devoted to it. I guess because I knew how it ended?
Top 5 favorite scene of all time. It so fully fleshed out the character of Tywin Lannister.
Since most of the other major Houses have been destroyed, the other 6 kingdoms are in disarray and won't be able to complain for many years to come. That should give Bran's Council time to set up a stable government.
Just finished watching season 8 on BluRay. I somehow kept from hearing any spoilers. All I knew was that a lot of people didn't like the way it was wrapped up. I was pretty much okay with it.
As pointed out in the thread about a previous episode I thought Varys was sending off notes letting the other leaders know about Jon's true heritage. But then he gets roasted and nothing comes of it.
I found this exact scene on the BluRay disc, no water bottle. So they erased it.
One year ago tonight. Hard to believe it's been a year, and hard to believe it's only been a year.
Wow so much has happened in my life and the world since this time last year.
it still makes me angry how badly the effed up the last season. So many things could have been done to make it better. They skipped over so much because they decided to shorten the season. The entire premise of the show (the white walkers and the Night king) were swept away with one crappy episode. The whole story line point about Arya becoming an assassin, skipped. By far though the worst was Jaime's stupidity leaving Brienne and then running back to Cersei. Just so completely out of character and threw away multiple season's worth of growth for the character.
Please don't get me riled up again about this. I've made peace with their shirty ending. (at least I thought I had)
Kinda hard to believe this past January wasn't a year ago...
Feels more like half a decade ago!
I find it hard to be angry at a piece of fiction. I just enjoyed the ride. I'm looking forward to the next book, if it ever comes, to get the real story.
See that's the thing....unless he has a major change in writing style, I don't see him ever finishing the series. Sure, I think that he'll get the next book out sometime, but even he can't fix the stupidity of the last season. He writes too much anyway....too many side plots that have no bearing on the main story.
I pretty much disagree with all of this but refuse to get sucked back in
Again over time, I've mellowed about this. The ride was so good that the destination almost didn't matter as much to me. A lot like Lost or The Sopranos, the series were so interesting and great and the endings were disappointing, but in the end, everything else was so great I could forgive them. Really only one show that I can remember in the last ten years or so that I've watched really nailed the ending and that was The Americans. That was almost universally loved. Other than that?
You're right. Lost, Dexter, SOA....... there are many others I'm sure if I think long enough, they all had major disappointing endings for me. I think Breaking Bad is one of the only shows I can say had the perfect ending. Then others like Justified, White Collar, Mad Men, Orphan Black, Mr Robot and maybe Boardwalk Empire had pretty good endings. Maybe not my ideal way to end things like BB, but pretty darn close. As once quoted by a fictional character, "endings are hard".
