Quote from: Dion Fanning

The chants for Kenny Dalglish that were heard again on Wednesday do not necessarily mean that the fans see him as the saviour. This is not Newcastle, longing for the return of Kevin Keegan. Simply, Dalglish represents everything Hodgson is not and, in fairness, everything Hodgson could or would not hope to be.

It's building to a conclusion though, so this seems natural. The first few seasons were heavy on their talk of winter, dragons and wars. Now all that is finally coming.

I know exactly what you mean, but I think it needs to be done on a grand, Hollywood scale. The time for subtlety was in the build up to these last few seasons, now that they're here it seems fitting that the pace accelerates to a dramatic finale.

I quite understand the need to quicken things up and tie up all the loose ends. But I think D&D are just desperate to shock or create drama and frankly, some of it is Bold and the beautiful level. For example, Jon's parentage was one of the most debated plot points in the storyline and the ultimate reveal was so thoughtlessly done that people thought Ned boned his sister. It's quite striking that GRRM has had little to do with the show since about season 4 and the quality has deteriorated significantly since then. The sheer strength of the source material is the only thing that keeps GOT interesting anymore and that's despite D&D, not due to them.

Sam himself said Stannis mentioned it to him, which is probably where you heard it before. After some quick googling lookis like it was in an episode towards the end of season 5.

Good to see old crusty hands in the citadel.
I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and thatís being very conservative. So thatís £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head thatís £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.

Of course they will. This episode has been universally acclaimed, except in the good ol' RAWK thread. I could have done without seeing Sheeran but its not difficult to just ignore him especially as he hardly any of the dialogue. Apart from that was a very good if not spectacular start to the season. Loved the Euron scene and the Hound of course

Why don't you save your time and just google it? And also google what you call someone who watches a show they don't like and then moans about said show.

Don't know what all the fuss is about Sheeran. He's just another face, no different than slopping in any other known "actor".  Not as if he had a major impact to proceedings. If it had been Shakira yous of all been loving it.

It's just that he's a huge celebrity. Someone earlier was likening it to Beckham's ridiculous cameo in King Arthur which is true.

The guitarist from Coldplay appeared but he isn't exactly well known, didn't talk and was in shot for a couple of seconds. Sigur Ros guested but again their faces are hardly known the world over. This was a bit different, firstly because he spoke and secondly because he's one of, if not the biggest artist in the world right now. It's easy to see why so many found it jarring.

It's not a big deal though. Just made one small scene a little weaker. On the whole I thought the episode was great. A lot don't seem to think so but I loved it.

I thought it was pretty good for a first episode, they usually are slogs but this one had a bit more verve than previous ones.

I really really liked the Winterfell scenes. The conflict between Jon and Sansa was really well done and I particularly liked the Karkstar and Umber kids bending the knee, it was reminiscent of a certain scene in the books that we didn't really got on the show. The Hound and the Brotherhood scenes were very good too, it showed a humanity in the Hound that we didn't really have seen and closed the circle of his redemption nicely.

The Euron parley was good but it bugged me when Cersei made fun of Euron's lack of humility, since when does Cersei care about someone being too arrogant? It was a really out of character and lazy thing to say but it was a small thing after all. 

I had some real troubles with the Bran scene though. It was really dumb for Dolorous Edd to act all suspicious of a little girl and a cripple boy being wildlings when they let every wildling with a pulse go through those gates, besides them helping Jon win a massive battle. That wasn't the worst part though, when Edd asks them how can he trust that they are Bran Stark and Meera Reed, Bran tells him he knows Edd was on the Fist of the First Men and Hardome and he knows that he saw the Night King, who is coming  after all of them. Excepting that Bran greenseeing powers have become main knowledge on the realm I don't see how that answer convinces an already suspicious Edd that they are who they say they are, but somehow it did. Unfortunately this is the kind of clunky and inconsistent writing that gives people like Jooney and the rest of the serial complainers ammo for weeks.

The rest of the episode was alright. Arya killing the Freys was well done but somehow unsatisfying. I have never given two shits about Sam storyline and his scenes here didn't change that but it was nice seeing some innovative editing on that first sequence. Dany's march through Dragonstone could have been pretty epic if that wasn't an unoccupied shitty castle on an island that nobody gives two fucks about. I know it's her first steps on Westeros since she was a child and it was her birthplace but it still is just Dragonstone, the place Stannis felt was an insult when it was given to him.
