Title: (A) Game of Thrones
Post by: Savannah on May 28, 2011, 09:35:16 AM
I just noticed that most of the Boxers either watch the series or read the book. So here's the thread  :headbang:


Just received the first book i ordered a week ago. The episode of this week was aired a little earlier, and i am so bored because i watched them all in a week. Until the next episode airs i hope i can finish the book.

So far, my favourite is: Khal Drogo, actually i like all of his people.
Also, though i dislike the character, Lena Headey kicks ass as Cersei Lannister.

Edit: Btw i just realized that it's my 666th post, YAY   >:D

There needs to be more love for this thread.
I watched episode 1 last week and it was amazing and then episode 2 got leaked and that was also amazing.

I'm currently almost finished the 4th book and I am entirely addicted to the entire series. I want Winds of Winter to come out right now but it may not actually come out for something like three years :(

^Wow Amanda, it must have been a day to remember  :)

I don't know if you have the time for it, but i hope you can watch the series. It's a really wonderful fiction that keeps you guessing.

If you've never seen Game of Thrones then you can at least be spared the INTENSE FRUSTRATION OF WAITING 7 MOTHERFUCKING DAYS TO KNOW WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN AWECSMKDCSFDVKNZXJNLSKMCXASC
Most intense episode in a while, I'm keen to see what they have in store for the finale next week.

Spoiler text below:
I hope Tyrion survives D: also, have they really won the battle? I mean, there was still chaos on the beach when Tywin busted in on the throne room, and breezing over the end of the battle would have been really weird. I like how they did the bit with the Hound and the fire, and I'm so glad he finally stood up to the Lannisters. Him and Bronn having that moment on the battlefield was kinda nice, too. Tyrion's speech was awesome, and oh dear I would not like to drink with Cersei. The Baratheons can't be through with yet, surely. What did everyone else think?

@Raliel: As far as i know Lena Headey is into tattoos, but could it be Sibel Kekilli or Emilia Clarke? Haha, it would be awesome if Emilia got a dragon tattoo.

@Astica: Spoiler- Yes, exactly it was the most splendid episode of the whole season. I really hope Tyrion can find a way out of that family, and yeah drunk Cersei is a god damn shrew as if her sober version was bearable. -Spoiler

I'm plowing through the books right now and I'm absolutely loving them. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do when I finish Dance with Dragons... I'm gonna be at a complete loss.

I've still not seen the series yet but I really want to get round to it. Though I guess the longer I leave it the more episodes I can watch.

Here, let me help....

There are a lot of people...
[breasts]
Some of these people are harsh, but good....
[t&a]
Others are really awful...
[random sex]
...and a few are benign, but kinda feeble....
[more gratuitous tits and sex]
There's a bunch of politicking and intrigue....
[wow these naked folks are hot]
Most of the people die horrid violent deaths....

Any questions?

Maaaah Gerrrrrd the final stretch of the wait for the new episode of Game of Thrones is soo hard right now. I can't believe how long it's been since we last had a new episode. I've missed this.

I know, right?
I've spent the last week rewatching both seasons.
Unfortunately I'm only going to get to watch the first episode tonight, because we won't have internet in the new flat for the next few weeks

It's the same in New Zealand, because you need a fancy digital tv, with a fancy sky box machine thing, with expensive channels you have to pay monthly for, and no one can afford all of that shit when most of us don't really watch much TV anyway. My guilt-absolving plan is to buy the DVD's once all of my imminent medical expenses are out of the way.

People were buying each episode from iTunes. Then our cable provider did a deal that prevented iTunes from fast tracking episodes. Now everyone is pirating it.

Serves them right.

Serves them right.
We're supposed to focus only on how "outraged" they are that people are 'stealing' it. They did the
same math that Adobe did for Photoshop - they compare increased theft and increased revenue,
and raise the price until their net-revenue is maximised.  Sure, they'll watch for anyone who's making
a dollar pirating the show, or places like Pirate Bay making it too easy to steal, but it's mostly an
indirect sales tool to encourage those people who could purchase, but currently steal (or are considering
piracy) to stay on the side of public approbation (and profit).

I don't torrent GoT, but I've still gotten two snotty emails from Verizon saying that they had heard from
the distributors that someone at my IP address was downloading it.  Gee, ya think they may not be as
good at tracking torrent networks as they think?

Haven't seen the ep, but in the book it's an obsidian [i.e. glass] blade, and it gets shattered.

oh. Well, the whatever-made blade it is that does in white walkers. Obsidian, I guess. We see the white walker shatter, but it's not clear if the blade shatters with it. Keen to see what happens next.

Yeah, obsidian, they call it "dragon glass", and it is lethal to Walkers, as is Valyrian steel, I think....
