  1. I've always held that use of the word "retardedness" is retardedness at its finest.
  2. The Game of Thrones

    Even then, not killing Drogon was the easy way out. The other dragons are hardly even shown in the background. Viserion's loss is only meaningful in the power shift it represents - not anything truly emotional.
  3. The Game of Thrones

    A great example from one podcast is contrasting this episode's red shirts with Hardhome - a quality episode. They had the Thenn, the mom/lady Wilding and they introduced Wunn Wunn. They gave the new characters lines and a real role. They structured it so you cared when those kids took out the lady. There was a sense of real peril and loss despite that main characters got out free and clear. That was a quality, difficult and nuanced episode. And, iirc, it was a show invention. They wrote it. This was lazy.
  4. The Game of Thrones

    Thoros is a character nobody cared about. Contrast his fate with Tormund's and it's clear what is going on. Red shirts and that one drunk guy die, everybody else is protected despite the fake peril they present regularly of late. A better argument is Viserion's death (what I think they thought would cause shock and awe) but then you touch on the real reason that stupid episode happened and it's rendered a losing argument as well. Another argument is the likelihood everyone is being saved for a mass kill off all at once, but that's inorganic and bad writing as well. It's bad writing. It's unforced errors. It's the opposite of what made the show so great. But it's a conclusion for what were interested in. So it's a fun disappointment despite it all.

    If only he'd started earlier, we may have been saved from the bad fanfic of seasons 5-8. Fortunately, we'll still get a real ending eventually.
  6. The Game of Thrones

    Regarding the attempted Trekkie put down- This last episode literally worked like a Star Trek episode with unnamed Red Shirts in the group North of the wall. They didn't even acknowledge existence, just had them around to get merc'd.

    He's busy not ruining his books by shortening and rushing them into 300 page popcorn.
  8. Goodell Extended 5 Years

    Get used to him and get real with who is the real problem... it's not Goodell. You enable and perpetuate his tenure when you focus on him and not the league.
  9. Goodell Extended 5 Years

    We've discussed this here a few times and I've always been under the impression some of you are intentionally blind to Goodell's real role - to make himself the story and shield the owners and league from scrutiny. Hopefully his new extension drives the point home for a few of you. Any time you focus on Goodell, you miss the point. He's doing exactly what the owners want. And they love it. https://www.si.com/nfl/2017/08/23/roger-goodell-ezekiel-elliott-suspension

    They made solid points throughout.
  11. The Game of Thrones

    Time constraints? Why make excuses when the show is perfect?
  12. The Game of Thrones

    They've been talking about 8 seasons for some time. They then decided the final two would be short. Life is a timeline, sweetheart.

    What drives an IMDB rating?
  14. Oooh.... wonder if I should bundle a Switch with mine.
