Game of Thrones TV (Spoilers ahead-watch the eps b4 u enter)

Post by Michael »

I stole this format from another site:

SPOILER RULES:

- ABSOLUTELY NO BOOK SPOILERS. It doesn't matter if they're under spoiler tags, they should not be in this thread. Use the other thread for book-related television discussion. This includes alluding to things, subtle hinting, comparing the books to the show, etc...

- Thread Rules:

Feel free to discuss anything that has aired without using spoiler tags.
Anything that hasn't aired yet should be spoiler tagged including information from HBO previews, loglines, trailers, interviews, and a few other places.
Speculation from people that haven't read the books is fine and encouraged.
No spoilers you've heard:
e.g. "I heard next week XX will return"

- For the book readers that want to lurk in this thread:

No taunting or teasing:
e.g. "Oh, just wait until you guys see what happens to him next week!!!"
No leading questions:
e.g. "What do you think will happen to this character by the end of the season?"
No comparing the book to the show:
e.g. "Well, that's different than in the book where they..."
Answering questions is fine when the information is readily available from what has aired on the show.
e.g. Q: "Wait, how is Robb related to Ned?" A: "Robb is Ned's son."

You ever talk about a movie with someone that read the book? They're always so condescending. 'Ah, the book was much better than the movie.' Oh really? What I enjoyed about the movie: no reading.

That pisses me off to no end. Literature and film (or TV) are completely different art forms anyway. They deserve to be judged on their own merit, not some bull [expletive] preconceived notion of what they're supposed to be.

As for GoT...

Next week will have boobs and murder. Probably.

I seriously doubt it, but I think it would be cool if Tywin was involved. That would help explain why he wanted Jaime to leave his post as the King's guard.

You should be. Literature vs film

I'd like to see that gymnast return. She was a compelling character.
