GoT for Book Readers (Beware Spoilers All Ye Who Enter)

Postby Banedon » Thu Jun 16, 2011 9:19 am

Ok, by request...this is the GoT television thread. Use spoiler tags appropriately. If someone feels like they need to talk about the books, please create a seperate thread.

What's the policy regarding book spoilers in this thread?

I don't think this is going to work at all. This probably should just be an all purpose GoT thread and the people who post in it just need to be considerate of others and label their spoilers appropriately. Anything that is ahead of where the TV audience is should be labeled as such. I think that's the best solution for all this back and forth.

Why not create a thread for the discussion of the books and a separate one for talking about the TV show? Is the delicate board equilibrium really going to topple over if we have *GASP* TWO GoT threads? I mean, we're already in the crazy territory of having a thread for a single TV show that's not part of the general TV discussion. There's no turning back from that kind of terrifying anarchy.

Ok then, this is the tv thread. Someone else can create a book thread if they'd like.

i don't like his half-accent, it's kind of awkward at times. but everything else has been fantastic, he's done a great job.

also, I can't believe his real name is Dinklage, i thought that was a clever stage name.

americans are wimps for the most part, anytime someone bleeds in this country they go to the hospital...i've personally given myself stitches on 4 separate occasions(once on my face,) a little blood is no big deal if you have some stones. i seriously dont know how the wussification of this country happened so fast

Yeah, Sean Bean drunkenly not caring about being cut means that nobody in the UK goes to the hospital over injuries. Brilliant.
