    Default Winter is Coming.....The Game of Thrones Thread

    I was thinking of starting one of these for awhile then this popped up this morning:





    basically, I watched the entire series in the first 6 months of 2017 while I took a little break from the links. I'm re watching it right now. IMHO, when you factor EVERYTHING in-story-lines, characters, visuals, musical score etc I think it's the most epic "television" show I've ever seen. It's actually more like each season is a really long movie in and of itself.

    So many great moments. This show has the incredible ability to make you just despise a character like Jamie Lannister and then you find yourself rooting for him. I've never gone from pulling for a character like Stannis Barratheon to literally hating him so fast in my entire life. It's an incredible show. There are so many epic moments in this show, so many "holy shit" moments. So many great characters. They've killed off so many great characters.

    I've kind of immersed myself in the GOT mythology....lol, I've got a touch of OCD. I'd love to discuss any aspect of the show.

    quick trailer breakdown:



    I saw one that was about an hour and a half long for the first season 7 trailer, I did not watch this one yet, might not have a ton of info on it but figured I'd throw it in there.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with Gendry, who was Robert's bastard that escaped Stannis a few seasons ago, I think he's going to play a bigger role in season 7 than most do, just my gut feeling.

    when I first started watching the show I looked up Geoffry and he was described as being one of the few TV characters in history with NO redeeming qualities what so ever. That's about right. Ramsey Bolton was just as bad (maybe worst) but he didn't have the pressence Geoffry had, he was an incredibly mis-wired character but he was a great character. you just loved to hate him.

    One of my favorite scenes is when Daenerys (sp?) killed the Dothraki lords last season.

    In the first trailer for season 7 they show the horde going into battle against a Westeros force. From what I've heard it's Sam's father who is leading the charge (remember Sam's father was/is a great military leader, Stannis said this to Sam when he met him at Castle Black), but this is a huge mistake as you're NEVER supposed to fight the Dothracki in an open field like that. The person who was breaking the trailer down said the Dothracki were going to just destroy them. Robert talked about NEVER fighting them in an open field like that back in season 1....

    Really there is a ton of cool shit going on in that trailer, the coolest is around 1:10 when that sword lights up. I seriously just got chills watching it.

    When I talk "holy shit" moments this is one of them, this is so cool on so many levels. It's the first time Dany shows her brutal side and if you had watched the episodes leading up to this you would understand why the black chick and the slave master are so shocked when Dany speaks Valerian, the shit he was talking was incredible and that she totally understood him the whole time.....your jaw just hit the floor:

    Last one for today, this is probably my ALL TIME favorite clip from the show. I've watched it dozens of times. There is a large group of GOT fans that hold out hope that Syrio somehow survived, in part of that group.

    It's a fantastic show and I was, originally, a non-believer. If I wasn't catching up on the (then) first three series, but was watching week by week, then I would've quit as series 1 didn't get going until episode 7 or 8.

    One thing I love - which will bypass anyone outside Blighty - is that as George RR Martin based Westeros on the British Isles the characters all have varying English accents based on what part of the country they're from (northern accents if they're from the north, southern accents if they're from the south etc).

    I also love how it isn't afraid to 'go there'. The death of Stannis' daughter being a prime example. Many parents kicked up a fuss but that's based on their own sentimentality about their own kids rather than judging objectively. Yes it was a heinous thing that Stannis did but it was essential to show just how obsessed he was with the iron throne, just how much be trusted Melisandre and, ultimately, just what a wretched figure he was in the aftermath.

    Has there ever been a character you love to hate more than Joffrey?
    And was there a more epic moment than when Tywin Lannister ordered him to go to bed like a little boy?

    As for Ramsay Bolton, I found it hard to take him seriously as the actor portraying him played a weak, gentle guy in the hilarious, very adult and very non-PC comedy series Misfits.

    Slight diversion:

    Misfits is about a group of youths on community service (which is what happens in the UK to avoid jail) and they develop super powers after a freak storm. It's bloody fantastic. Lots of weird things happen - including a great time travel loop in a later series and Rudy having his cock 'stolen'.

    Series 1 & 2 were lit up by the rude crude and lewd Nathan and would say things that would make you gasp that such things would be allowed on TV and when he left we all thought there was no way he could be replaced but we were all wrong as Rudy was all that Nathan was and more.

    Here is one of the more gentler clips. Ignore the subtitles, its in English.

    I'm with you on the "not scared to go there" part. No character is safe. I did NOT like what they did with Sharine (sp), it's one of the few times I fast forwarded through anything EVER. I thought Stannis was a great character and after he told Sharine how he fought to cure her of the grey scale I liked him even more. Then I instantly hated him.

    Tyrion's confession was more epic than Tywin sending Geoffrey to bed without supper IMHO but I know what your saying. I LIKED Tywin as a character even though he was a total dick. He was fantastically complex and wonderfully acted. His interactions with Arya were great.
