  1. Since I joined telegram ive noticed my actual posts here have been less frequent
  2. My opinion on the rest of Thrones won’t change no matter how it ends. I’ll pretty much always regard Seasons 1-4 as peak television, and Battle of the Bastards + Winds of Winter as the best two hours of TV I’ve watched.
  3. I think it’s worth being repeated, Endgame’s shorter legs likely have more to do with it burning off demand much more quickly because of how everyone wanted to see it in the first week with no spoilers. At this point the majority of the people who wanted to see Endgame would have seen it.
  4. This thread is nonsense. I am the biggest pop star on the planet. Im so big China uses me as a foreign policy tool to reward its allies and punish those who cross them!
  5. News from Panda Studios: - Walter Goggins and Willem Dafoe have been brought on for ‘major’ roles in Brian Almighty - A large portion of The Orphan Master Son’s Star studded cast has been revealed, is seemed like The main roles cast were: Yoo Ah-in (Burning) as the lead character the film follows, Jun Do Jeon Jong-soo (Burning) as Sun Moon and Choi Min-Sik (Oldboy) as The Dear Leader Kim Jong Il John Cho (Searching) as The Interrogator Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) as Gil Randall Park (The Interview) as Q-Kee Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) as Commander Ga Cho Jin Woo (The Handmaiden) as Comrade Buc Margaret Cho (30 Rock) as Li Mognan Lee Byung-Hun (A Bittersweet Life) as The Captain Park Seo-Joon (Midnight Runners) as The Second Mate Bobby Lee (Pineapple Express) as Dr Song Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians) as Rumina Ha Jung Woo (The Handmaiden) as Sarge Jeff Bridges (True Grit) as The Senator Tim Kang (Rambo) as Officer So Amy Adams (Arrival) as Wanda Blake Lively (A Simple Favor) as Allison Jenson Katy Mixon (Hell or High Water), cameo Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), cameo Moon Sung Keun (Burning), cameo Linda Park (Star Trek: Enterprise), cameo There are more smaller roles that have been cast but yet to be announced.
  6. Given I often have to gather votes for the BOFFIES or the Top 250 lists, I don’t put anyone on ignore. Also, an ignore button being present isn’t an excuse to have free reign acting like an ass 🤷🏽‍♂️
  7. No. That’s putting words into my mouth. I reflected on what we got, and saw it in a different light then in my blind watching. My core issue of Dany’s snap being a rushed moment remains my core issue with the episode, but it doesn’t feel as jarring to me now as when I first finished watching the episode. That’s how art works. You reflect on it and your opinions about it change as you discover new things that are present in it. Sometimes this reflection moves your opinion in a more negative direction, other times more positive. For example, in episode 4, I started out rather positive about it. And upon reflection found a lot of issues within the episode that made it a little sub-par to me. Your opinion of something is allowed to exist in a space of both positive and negative. There’s aspects of this episode that I really love, parts that I’m fine with, and other parts that I think could have been executed a lot better. You can have a nuanced opinion on art where you can focus on both the positive, negative and neutral of it. I actually think that makes for better dialogue than shitting on something and calling the creators “Dumb and Dumber, der” or just saying “WOW BEST EVER”
  8. I’ve had mixed thoughts on the episode, but it really doesn’t effect my enjoyment of the series as a whole. Most of the fans I think are overreacting about how “awful” it is. I think Thrones is probably too popular now for its own good. Meaning, everyone wants something different from the show, and it can only really deliver one thing. So, while there are some pretty big issues with a few episodes this season, I think those issues are getting hyperbolized by some fans disliking the direction the plot decided to take (that’s not to say some of the big complaints this season are or are not legitimate. The fans I’m talking about there are the ones petitioning for a remake of season 8 ) 😎
  9. I’ll be honest, my first reaction to the episode was pretty negative. But the more I reflect on it, the more I actually liked the episode. There’s quite a few problems that won’t go away (such as how rushed the development is, and the disappointment that Jaime’s character ends where it started after all of that development), but those don’t feel as show ruining as they did after the episode ended. Dany’s snap was hella rushed, but in some way that suddenness put you in the shoes of the characters and people who have the same “WTF?” reaction. She always had a paranoia when things weren’t going her way that she needed to make a grand demonstration to beat some fearful sense into people. I think when she hears the Bells, Dany makes a decision to to choose ruling through fear (out of her own fear that these people will never love her, and will simply flock to Jon or the next best alternative unless she cements herself as somebody to be feared). I think this moment needed more build up, and that could have happened if these last two seasons were normal 10 episodes in length. But, since this is what we’re given, I think the destination makes sense and I can better enjoy all of the brilliant technical and acting work going on in the episode. If we’re thinking about that foreboding “Winter is Coming” in the series, it’s fairly poetic for Winter to not just be an ominous, evil force that can’t be reasoned with. Winter is brought on by humanity’s own doings and desire to secure power. Imo, that’s probably where GRRM was intending to take his story thematically wise, and the books should hopefully be able to flesh that out in more detail. But the main points of this seem to come across in the episode to me.
