    I would suggest spoiler tags for at least 2 days after an episode airs.

    I personally would also prefer all rumoury type spoilers, my cousins friends uncle was a carpenter on set type stuff also gets put in spoiler tags and labelled appropriately. Last season I had some cunt at another forum spoil Jon Snow being king in the north the week before the Battle of the Bastards aired.

    That sucks :\ I should probably re-watch season 6... But There's no time

    I feel the producers are rushing it a bit. Season 5 were Book 4 and 5 jammed in together. They could at least have made it 2 seasons.

    I re-watched the whole thing from season one, finished a few weeks ago. It really drove home how terrible season five was.

    Season 5 was so bad. It had its moments, but over-all it was...

    They've rushed the show in general. Worried it wouldn't become popular enough, I suppose, so they decided to keep it focused.

    But it doesn't really lend enough gravitas to a lot of the plot when it goes this quickly.

    Then again, it's better than TWD and the snorefest that has become.

    I like my Series to start with more of a bang really.
    Still waiting for a true Next Gen AVP FPS experience!

    It was good.

    Spoiler:
    Arya becoming a bit of a mass murdering psychopath is something I can really get behind.
    Most of the other stories lines were just touching base with some characters and setting up for some later episodes.
    I'd be interested to know how Jorah ended up in the Citadel.
    Looks like everyone is headed to Dragonstone or The Wall. Seems like they could be setting a faster pace for these last two seasons.
    Didn't really need 10 minutes of Dany re-discovering Dragonstone, but I guess they're getting us familiar with the geography for later episodes.

    I, for one, quite liked the overview of Dragonstone. It gave a visual that we've not had as yet. It was really nice.
    Jorah went to get a cure, duh. Assuming he admitted himself willingly.
    On point with Arya though, she is quite excellent. Wife was upset that her hands were like those of an old man. I tried explaining to her that there's more to being a faceless man than just taking a face.. considering how apparently they mimic voices and other behaviours. Assuming some sort of light magic is at work.

    Spoiler:
    Yeah, I figured it's going to play a very big part this season, and obviously we're going to need a good overview of the island and it's layout. We also got a nice aerial shot of Winterfell, which from memorty is something we've not had outside of the opening credits.

    Spoiler:

    Spoiler:
    Yeah, but he can probably guess as well as we can that the maesters don't know how to cure greyscale. When he was off to search the world for a cure I imagined he'd be headed to the Shadowlands beyond Asshai.

    I assume your assumption is correct. It's more than just wearing a face. It's Tom Hardy in Inception.

    Spoiler:
    I was tricked at first about how old man Frey was Arya. I thought it was what happened before he died, so someone would carry out his work in case of his death. Turns out I was wrong.
    The Citadel was kinda boring imo, all we see is Sam almost throw up and a lot of shit.
    I liked Clegane's scene tho, when he saw into the fire.
    During the Dragonstone LOTR walk, I expected an ambush that never came.
    Really liked the cameo of Ed Sheeran too.


    Speculation:
    Spoiler:
    Seeing how Arya is dead set on revenge, and seeing how poorly it has gone for everyone else, I think she's gonna die this season. Maybe the faceless men will kill her for betraying them, The Mountain will crush her like a pebble or Cersei being smarter.

    The Original Reviews of George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones

    http://lithub.com/the-first-reviews-...me-of-thrones/

    "Many fans of sword-and-sorcery will enjoy the epic scope of this book, something of a change of pace for Martin, who has spent the last decade working for television and who has long been honored for his award-winning stories (e.g., ‘Sandkings’). Still, to my mind, this opening installment suffers from one-dimensional characters and less than memorable imagery."

    I didn't read any of the posts in this thread because I still didn't watch the new episode, but it's like the only tv show I watch (I hate generally avoid tv shows). Will watch it this weekend and report back to you guys.

    Spoiler:
    Fuck's sake GoT. Stop killing off everyone! An alliance between Snow-Targaeryan and Targaeryan is looking more and more likely. Arya returning to Winterfell is cool. and then all the Sand Snakes died, Theon ran off like a bitch and... Sister-thing got captured... Fun stuff. Must contemplate on what the fuck I just saw.

    I'll be contemplating Missandei's boobs.

    They're really moving things along a bit too quickly this season. Melisandre just showing up at Dragonstone, ally with Jon Snow, "send a raven", next scene, raven is there. "Take the iron fleet to Dorne", next scene, Iron Fleet getting wiped out. Odd that they punctuated that with the Grey Worm / Missandei romance, but I suppose that was a nice payoff after 3-4 seasons of build up.

    I don't really understand why they've cut this season down to 7 episodes, I know there's a few that are significantly longer, but it feels like they're rushing shit now.

    All that being said, I have no real complaints about an episode where I get to see Missandei naked.

    Spoiler:
    I've felt they've been rushing things since season 5. Season 1 = Book 1, Season 2 = Book 2, Season 3+4 = Book 3(Super small parts 4-5), Season 5 = Book 4+5 and cutting down so much from them. So many characters have been completely changed between the show and the books. I'm just hoping mr George can get his thumb out of his ass and release book 6 this year.
    Also, first we got to see Melisandre's boobs, now Missandei's, maybe they moving down the alphabet
