  1. Past hour
  2. If Martin’s fault was to spend too long developing the story, Weiss and Benioff charge through it as if they have a train to catch. They have not learned that it is better to cut a subplot in its entirety than leave it in half-cooked. One minute Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth are having an affair. The next they are not. They cannot build. The final series turns on the fight against Cersei, but she is barely seen until the massacre at King’s Landing. They cannot get their story to make sense. In one episode, three dragons cannot defeat Cersei’s forces. In the next, one can. When and if Martin finishes the novels, Game of Thrones may stand alongside Tolkien and Rowling. But the TV series demonstrates there is no substitute for an individual writer’s creative vision. And for that we should applaud it. https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2019/may/19/game-thrones-bad-writing-season-eight-nick-cohen
  3. I know it's "TV" or whatever, but why did Dany need to be killed so soon? She gave those speeches in the immediate aftermath of the victory. Give it time - they won't be marching off to the next liberation for a few weeks/months/years. "Words are wind" is a common saying in the last book. But yeah, "TV" speeches are considered to be gospel truth, so I get it.
  4. What was missing was GRRM's material. Either the show writers couldn't come up with the filler stories to complete episode's in order to flesh out the arcs better or they didn't want to so GRRM wouldn't be boxed into any corners outside what he shared with how the story ends....or they were flat out ready to be done with it. Either way, it's different because that whole world that existed beneath the surface before wasn't there because it didn't exist the last few seasons.
  5. I’m a jackass for telling a story about a friend who survived a crash due to not wearing a seat belt? Ok. I never said seatbelts were dumb. Simple fact is seat belts arent some automatic life saving feature on a vehicle. If they were I get enforcing wearing them. If people don’t want to wear seatbelts that should be there decision.
  6. The speed depends on the currency and the exchange you are using. Some 2-3 days. Some like 5 min.
  7. I actually agree with this critique. You can can still get the Greek font feel but with a different number style than the one we chose
  8. No, it just points out what a pathetic bunch of hypocrites you libs are. If you don't like posts that bring up Clinton, then stop being such a f'ng hypocrite.
  9. It's like this forum has become a trial balloon for the right wing spin machine. Ignore the current POTUS, but throw in Clinton, AOC, Obama with a dash of grievances and a sprinkle of whataboutism and we have a stew ready for the 2020 reelection run.
  10. Not sure about Mariota, but if you change the thread to Tanniota vs Flacco, I'd vote Terry Bridgwater.
  11. This is basically a terrorist attack. The South Africans have been getting shit on by white people for decades. Many of the whites live in affluent gated areas in plain view of starving children.
  12. Yes. Your opinions and faux outrage on destroying evidence is funny. I call bullshit on your concerns regarding destroying evidence because you don't seem to have any issues with the Trump campaign deleting emails and text messages that prevented the Mueller investigation from reaching a conclusion.
  13. Won't have to worry about this stat for our receivers. Only 1 of them has proven they can separate, and he drops it half the time.
  14. Today
  15. Jesus. This is why the right wing spin machine continues to bring up Clinton. It allows them to dismiss anything and everything Trump does or says. Its pathetic and depressing to watch.
  16. Don't mind the ending. They stayed true to the character GRRM created. It was always going this way. Decent final episode but its obvious they wanted to get to this point more than they wanted to build towards it.
  17. The length of the season will be the ultimate what if for me. It certainly feels like the largest unforced error in television history right now. Especially because HBO and the author wanted more and these guys called their shot by saying no.
  18. Yeah, in the tens of thousands of car accidents per year that result in very little injury, there's always some jackass like this who tells this type of story. Or the person who drove their car into a lake but didn't drown because they weren't wearing a seatbelt. But then 100 other people died because they hit a brick mailbox and got tossed onto the pavement head first through a windshield and died. That person doesn't go around telling their stupid story about "seatbelts are dumb."
  19. It's in the financial interests of insurance companies and basically anyone who drives. When you risk your life that way, you potentially offer liability risks to others. The constitution says the government can regulate the roads anyway they see fit, because it impacts commerce.
  20. 1-2 punch? More like a haymaker-feint.
  21. I wonder if Pats message boards have posts that speculate about a player's psyche and confidence level based on jersey font?
  22. Clinton should have gone to jail and obviously obstructed justice along with other crimes. A 5 year old can see the distinction. If someone is so brainwashed or brain dead they can't see that using a hammer on devices, beachbit washing hardrives and destroying e-mails (at the time were under subpoena) while the AG is working out a plan on a tarmac with her husband isn't as bad as bad can get there is really no hope in arguing with these people. We just need to face the facts here. Oman and others are just beyond hope. I don't know if it is a physiological issue (probably too much inbreeding in Oman's case) or just good old deception. Either way it is evil and proof is in how these people aren't just dumb but they are dumb in lock step.
  23. I just read an article that stated that Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau are all alive but.............. https://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/pictures/game-of-thrones-cast-what-they-look-like-off-screen-2013273/37145-2/
