Re: Game of Thrones

It’s pretty hard to bring something this sprawling to a satisfying close. If it was easy, it probably wouldn’t be taking GRRM a decade to write the penultimate book. I think they have done a great job. Online GoT fans are making Star Wars fans look reasonable these days. I had extremely low expecta...

We'll see. He could end up like Miguel Cabrera, or he could end up like Pablo Sandoval.

Sure, but if she didn't succeed, literally all of the characters were moments away from imminant death. I had a hunch that next three episodes weren't going to be zombies frolicking on their way to King's Landing. Agreed that she could have died in the attempt, though. how hatable would Cersei vs t...

Re: Game of Thrones

i know it was by design, but it was way too hard to follow the action and i still felt kind of mad right after it aired. sleeping on it, i'm still 100% all-in and am fine with all the storyline decisions. and i look forward to a re-watch of the episode so i can have a better idea of what the hell is...

Re: On what date does Maddon get fired? winner gets an up vote

Why are people actively rooting for Maddon to be replaced with a significantly worse manager? who is doing that? Well since pretty much all managers suck (or the good ones are gainfully employed), who are the candidates who would be an improvement on Maddon, either mid-season or in 2020? brandon mc...
