When Jon Snow and Danaerys were kissing I was seriously expecting one of the dragons to put a hand over its face.

i think the point/question was are the dragons ok enough with Jon to follow him instead of Dany.

they both have plot armor so of course the dragons are ok with it. show writers just checking off boxes for scenes they "need" to show to pull it all together in a few more episodes and save the show's legacy.

Dragonriding is confirmation of RLJ / Targaryen bloodline. It's better than "oh btw Brann is omniscient now."

The point is that Daenerys was necessary for the dragons to hatch and the dragons are now necessary for her to get pregnant. The dragons and the Targaryans have a symbiotic relationship. They're just looking after their own future.

the “shocking” moment was stupid when you think about it. i like dodarrion and the wildling dude and there was tension when they were

going through the castle. but first you get the surprise scen where they meet up with ed. kinda dumb, but ok. then you have the kid strung up iin the middle of severed limbs. like the glover sigil. pretty shocking that they show a dead kid like that. and then he opens his eyes. holy shit!

but the night king would have no reason to send a message like this. he isn’t supposed to be a bond villain. he is more threatening when he just leads the army of the dead. no reason to turn him into ramsay bolton.

But srsly there was actually a scene where Jon snow was like "it's too cold in the north for a southern girl like u Dany" and Dany was like "I've got u to keep me warm". Idk if you could even get away with a line like that in twilight or romcom level films in 2019

honestly it's not ok for a bookmo like me bc I know I could do better than these putzes.

if ur not a bookmo what u need to understand here is that this shit is SET UP to be adapted for hbo*. it doesn't take a lot of imagination or creative work to film these books because martin wrote game of thrones in a TV show frame (he was working as a TV writer in Hollywood for a decade before he started writing the dragon show books). eg, his "chapters" are really written as *scenes* more so than novel chapters. that is just how the books are structured.

so everything you like about the show was taken straight from martin with no translation necessary and everything bad about it is when they try to use their own tiny brains to make a TV show. and they're just not good at it

*martin told me a decade before the adaptation that it was too long for a film treatment but hed like it as an hbo show. "so instead of tony soprano wed have cary elwes as jaime lannister. that'd be cool, right? a man can dream..."

Then GRRM has no one to blame for the state of the show than himself. What were they supposed to do? He wrote it for TV, they adapted it, and he left it unfinished. The show-runners did what they could, but they're not GRRM.

?

martin is to blame for choking away the book series halfway through but im saying the show-runners are REALLY bad at their job.

itd be better if martin finished the books. but in the situation we have the show-runners were going to have to get to work. and these dudes suck balls.

when i say i would have done a better job i mean i literally would do a better job. no qualifications about "if i were an experienced tv writer/producer..". no. off the couch i would have done way better than them. so im giving them zero credit for having a tricky job or whatever with martins bookmenopause because i understand the job they had and i watched them fail at it.

a concise example was given online last night. Varys's comment "nothing lasts" was a major plot point, signaling the audience that the jon-dany affair is doomed. But GRRM would have given Varys a clever, colorful soliloquy to share that point. The show just has him blurt it

so yeah i mad.

i also read dragon show books and would rather make them into hbo dragon show than have a real job.

and these guys got to do that and didnt even bother to do the work. i remember one of them saying they just wanted to get to the red wedding and didnt have any plans or motivation beyond that.

well, yeah, i understand his point there. but it was actually his job to think shit through beyond, "duuuude, the red wedding episode will be sick. fuck my dick is hard. bro, you think we can get a cool band to do the song? oh man, that shit would be siiiiick bro."

I still think GRRM has finished the books, more or less, and they will be contain substantial departures from the show.

He was posting chapters from upcoming books years before they were finished and wrote all new, very long books during the intervening period. That doesn't make any sense.

hes nowhere near done.

hes still deep in the shit and at this point probably wont get out.

the story of the books is that martin had a crisis after the third book and probably made the wrong move. its possible he didnt have a good move--but if there was a good move available he definitely whiffed.

the third book was a triumph. he just went from climax to climax. he was topping gems with gems. and not only did he have absurdly good wins but he was making a potent, coherent meta move with the book; the major plot lines were brought to their natural conclusions/pauses/pivots.

book three just fucking paid off in a way you couldnt have even hoped for. it had everything--new shit you didnt see coming, unbelievably satisfying conclusions to shit he had set up in book one, a chessboard at the end that seemed clear for martin to do whatever he wanted or needed to do for the rest of the series.

after peaking with book 3 martin told us he was going to do something different for book 4: he was going to drop us five years into the future because he had finished the arc of the first book and the next story required his younger characters to spend some time growing up.

for years we were told he was working on how to pull off this five year gap. until one day he said he had written hundreds of pages of it but couldnt pull the trigger and he was starting over to tell the stories he couldnt leave behind in the gap.

he released book 4 and it was an outright disaster. we went from book 3s embarrassment of riches to literally nothing happening because martin had already spent years TRYING to skip over the events he was now showing.

he then went into another deep funk and assured us he was going to save it with the next book.then he started to report problems with this book, too. he was boxed into corners hed painted and couldnt find his way out. years roll on and he finally releases the book and its another trainwreck which doesnt resolve any of his issues.

but while deep in this swamp he gets rescued by the call to make dragon show, and suddenly he has an excuse to not work...which is where we are now. hes accomplished dick since the show started and hes looking at a table without many shots to shoot

This is scholarship but the thing is even the unmitigated disasters of books 4 and 5 were fun to read because he's an incredible world-builder. I'd have settled for more of the same, but instead we get nothing at all because the dragon show became what it became.

yeah ill say theyre not nothing bc martin has certain skills.

which might be a weakness for the meta.

bc jfc if martin cant pull new compelling characters out of his ass. hes good at it and he knows it so he decided to indulge himself in his little basement world if he couldn't solve the actual problems he was facing with the overall plot.

its like a guy whos not sure how to finish writing songs for his album but knows he can always just shred because hes better at guitar than you and people will listen.

she lays an egg, actually. the egg is stolen and frozen and hidden underground. years later when all the surviving under 18yo characters mature a little, they begin a quest to find the egg in the shambles of what was once the north and south, and a new story begins. This time the quest must be done in ghost-mode because the north and south are now overrun with white walkers who can be avoided if one practises the art of not being seen. Arya knows how to do this and will teach the others.

There is a wide gap between not being soft and awkward and minimizing the risk of falling off.

My OP was somewhat flippant, but that scene could have been much more. In fact, it would have been much better to have that scene do more to move Danny and Jon's relationship forward than the stupid waterfall scene. Instead, they went snark from the strong girl. Shocking.

It is dumb that Jon and Dany take a dragon Uber to go fuck while Winterfell is preparing for the biggest siege in military history. But Jon being able to ride the dragon is actually very significant plotwise, as it is the proof for Dany that Jon is a Targaryen. She would never believe the autistic raven or senior associate Sam Tarly. But (living) dragons are only mounted by those with dragon blood.

There is a theory along these lines. However, it seems much simpler to say the rules about Targaryens riding dragons apply to living dragons, and whatever voodoo Night King used to possess/reanimate Viserion allows him to totally dominate the dragon.

When he came to her court and refused to bend the knee, his associate plead with her that Jon had taken a knife to the heart. Then, her associate scurried over, leaned in, and whispered in Danys ear. Dany immediately softened and said essentially, "Where are my manners, right this way gentlemen, please be my guests." She also later took the opportunity to ask him if it was true his having taken one in the heart. She strongly suspected he was Dragon blooded ever since his court visit.

she's the 2nd best character left.

yes, criticisms valid, but the theme that people care who their ruler is has been consistent throughout the show

It's been bad for a few years now. Last night was actually OK as compared with the last few years.

It's amazing how simplistic and dumbed down the whole show is now. I remember struggling to follow all the characters and the plot lines in the first few seasons. How legitimately smart and creative some of the characters were and how they dealt with plot twists and out smarted each other. Being surprised by "random" things like Jamie getting his hand cut off, or ned stark getting executed. Hardly any complexity to any of the plots now, and you are never, ever surprised. Show writers can't take the same risks as authors can, so it all ends up banal and repetitive of the same movie you've been watching your whole life.

Like going to Bronn and giving him the huge weapon to kill his old friends - will he double cross them or will he stay loyal? Or the queen letting the "Bad boy" take her. Sansa being jealous of the dragon queen's romance with her brother. The boat boy saving his sister yet again and his sister headbutting him out of frustration, or the awful scene on the ship where she tells him to follow his heart (i'm sure next episode he will magically end up at the gates of winterfell). The lame "the dragons ate all these things" against the "the dragons aren't eating enough" joke. All just plays on standard conventions you see in main stream movies all the time. And this episode wasn't even as bad as the others.

At this point they almost need to have the dragon queen die in some "shocking" death in order to reclaim some semblance of artistic respect. I can't predict how they go, but if they just let the dragon queen take over as queen and Kit as king in some equal responsibility kingdom or democratic republic with some jesus-like baby coming, I am not sure how anyone can take HBO seriously again - though I'm sure the ratings will be fine and the women who watch these shows will enjoy it.

It doesn't help that maise williams and drinklage are the only people even trying to act anymore.

The writers have clearly been heavily influenced by the modern Marvel Cinematic Universe / comic book “style” that is ubiquitous in series like Avengers / Guardians of the Galaxy / new Star Trek / new Star Wars, and even to an extent in older media like the LOTR trilogy.

The hallmarks of this style are things like (1) overly witty characters constantly spouting one-liners and jokes, especially as cutaways during action scenes; (2) a celebration of modern “diversity” values despite the applicable historic or cultural understanding, ie, grrl power Lady Mormont in medieval Europe; (3) heavy fan service directly responding to Reddit memes and popular fan theories; and (4) predictable plotlines supported by frequent and obvious foreshadowing to support the spinoff genre of “shows about the show” and to shape the narrative of those shows, blending writing with marketing.

In seasons one through three, there was very little of this stuff because the show was faithfully adapting a body of work that was created before this style came to dominate the entertainment industry. Now it has completely taken over the show because there is no source material to draw from. Great acting talent is reduced to quipping in the background to generate meme posts.

they went full reddit with tyrion/bronn for no apparent reason other than raw millennial fanaticism for this particular brand of writing.

tyrion and bronn had witty banter or whatever in the books but they turned that into pure soyboy hehe breweries and soccer scarves and bromances lame faggotry the second they got the chance.

So many things have changed it’s hard to completely explain it.

A key underpinning to the marvel universe is that all of those movies are fundamentally comedies. There may be serious parts, but always offset by plenty of one liners, inside jokes, witty women laughing at men, or witty minorities making fun of white people. The Sherlock guy in black panther was there solely to allow the black people to make fun of a white guy. Black panther left all the serious parts to Michael B Jordan, who almost made it worth watching but one wonders why isn’t he the hero vs the rich people playing easy mode? The answer is because everyone wants to play easy mode and that’s what they enjoy seeing - those people winning .

GoT was not a comedy. Yes it was funny at parts, but the world was cruel, not fair, harsh. Facts mattered, reality controlled, being smart was more important than being good. Ned Stark killed an innocent person in the first scene. When was the last time one of the “good” characters did something like that? That’s why they spent so much time on the dragon lady killing those random Tully people that no one remembers which was entirely forced and unnecessary.

GoT is not quite as bad as say Avengers because it’s universe is still restricted by its source material. And it’s not a bad show - high production value and talented acting make it worth it (though I look forward to it being over). That’s the shame of it. The woman who plays the lesbian boat people lady is a great actor in her own right. Yet she’s forced to do three scenes - one with her uncle doing the classic “let me tell you all of my plans because lol you are tied up” routine which we’ve been forced to watch since the bond movies which invented it in the 50s, then the brother saving her with no explanation, plan, drama, setbacks, suspense, cleverness because, well we don’t have time let’s just show some redshirts getting killed. And then the final atrocious scene on the boat where he sheepishly stands there and says one thing but means another and she’s sensitive enough to understand - ironically forcing the actor to take on standard action movie female norms despite her character supposing to be a bull dyke dominate alpha male. That’s the flaw of these movies - it’s easy enough to throw a woman into a position of power, but they have two characters - the standard female sensitive lover, and cruella deville.

"Michael B Jordan, who almost made it worth watching"

Hell no. His acting in Black Panther was atrocious.

Disagree. Overly melodramatic but he was the only one in the film who had any talent other than the Sherlock guy who just looked lost.

His role in the comic book is to give the audience (white people) a lense to view Wakanda and Black Panther. Oh and yea, the blacks make fun of him a lot.

He is actually much more competent in the movie. In the comics he actually gets cucked by Tchalla

I’m sure it’s true to the source material in that respect.

Cr observation re: (1). All because of Joss Whedon's influence from the first Avengers, which was the first of the Marvel movies to make insane money.
