What are you watching right now???

My suspicion is that the show turned out exactly how the books were going to turn out… but when GRRM saw the reception it got he said “uh oh” and went back to start the latest book over from scratch.

There were only 2 things that I hated about how everyone wound up in GoT - Jamie’s redemption arc was completely pointless and Bran being king - ‘who had a better story?’ Only every other character.

The storytelling and production values just seemed to evaporate. That’s what I hated the most about S8.

Yep. 100% agree. Sansa should have been king.

I’m OK with Sansa becoming Queen of an independent North, but I would have chosen Gendry Baratheon for King’s Landing. One thing I did love was Arya’s story arc. Her and the Night King was the highlight of the series for me… I didn’t care whose butt went on the pointy chair after that.

Well, I was disappointed Arya didn’t go ‘Faceless Man’ on the Night King. All that training was practically pointless. Another case of what happened was fine, but how it happened and how it was told/filmed/delivered that made S8 such a disappointment.

See I liked that part because it was a callback all the way to her training in Season one. But, we should probably not have an in depth discussion here since other folks are trying to watch for the first time :grin:

I’m watching all the squirrels dig up my yard. Does anyone need some squirrels? I have extras

That depends. Are you willing to take rabbits in exchange?

Oh…is that really a thing? I get a bunch of Rifftrax e-mails and don’t always read them, but I do remember them saying something about how much scratch is involved in putting on a live show.

Probably was about that.

I’m skeptical…so many of Johnny Utah and “friends” are burned into my brain from the main riff…and Garey Busey’s voracious appetite for sandwiches. Or “subs” if one prefers. Two! Meatball subs! Hey! Two!

Skeptical it couldn’t fail to be awesome!

Le sigh…it could have been Phantom Menace or a similar classic…I’ll survive.

We use this to keep rabbits and squirrels out of our garden. It doesn’t harm them at all, they just hate the smell.

One of my coworkers watched GOT for the first time last year. It was fun to hear him update us on it as he went.
Also, you know who else had a better story ? I did, sitting on my couch watching it. Me. :blush:

I’m enjoying the heck out of the final season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. All caught up now, just awaiting the final episode on Sunday. Anyone else keeping up with this? Here’s my speculation about how it’s going to end:

From the moment he was arrested in Atlanta, I suspected this arc: he’ll go to trial, he’ll be found guilty, he’ll be put in jail, where he’ll meet … the Seinfeld gang.

My priceless DVD copy of [mmmmph] vs. [mmmmph], which somehow I forgot to dispose of properly when the disc was recalled.

I prize my copy of this as well. I was incredibly lucky to get this volume off eBay 7-8 years ago. It feels like the disc should be framed, like a gold record. Actually, I might just do this!

Well, I’ve just finished season 4 of GOT.

I have been doing a bit of fast forwarding, there are some plot lines I just don’t care about, first and last 10 seconds of scenes in those parts of the story seem to be enough to fill me in.

It does stray close to various types of porn at times.

I guess I’m about to see if I agree with it going downhill from here…
