If it wasn't so popular and the risk of spoilers being so high I'd gladly leave it til the end of a series and watch them in bulk. Although with this you'd probably need to watch all the seasons in bulk cos shit can happen in series 1 episode 1 and you are expected to remember it 5 years later.

I have no idea how to download TV shows these days so I've only seen the first episode of this season. Very sad :(

I thought last nights episode was probably the most cohesive episode this season.
Also I was pleased there was no Sam slowing the pace to a crawl. The fight in Crasters was good. Sword through the gob, great stuff.

I thought Game of Thrones was superb last night.
When yer one the mad bitch said to Littlefinger that it was her that poisoned John Arryn - was that the first we heard of it?

I always thought it was Cersei that had him bumped off because he found out about her and Jaime.

yeah it was the first mention of it. And also that she sent the letter to Catelyn blaming the Lannisters for it. All at Littlefinger's request. The whole war was started by him

I watched that Simpsons yesterday. It was decent enough, similar to but better than the Community GI Joe episode.

Gotham is one of the shows I'm actually interested in seeing. I like Arrow so I'm hopeful DC will actually make a decent show out of it.

In the books their chats are even gentler

game of thrones was ok.........nice to see less tits & fanny for a change
the scenes with Sansa's aunt were good. love how quick she loses her temper. she's a great horrible character .... forgot about dopey Robin hah!
cersie looks tanned & healthier than usual. dani scenes were boring as usual. arya scenes were too but I get why they show them.
final fight scene was great....what's the story with yer man who tried to kidnap bran? who is he working for? was it him who cut Jamie's hand off?
also bran's nose is growing at a fierce rate. it doubles in size per episode.....he's distracting
is it strange that I wish this thread title read TV Discussion and not Television Thread. it just looks wrong

yeah it was the same fella that chopped off Jaime's hand. Maybe he was going to use him as a hostage and try to get a pardon from the nightswatch with Roose Bolton or something. He wasnt a character in the books so this is pure speculation on my part

GoT
His name's Locke, the last we saw him with Roose Bolton, Roose had sent him north to find Bran and Rickon, pretty sure Bolton wanted them killed so they couldn't come back and reclaim Winterfell. Think he was going to kill Jon Snow as well. Thought it was a bit coincidental how he even found Bran and them, he had no other real way of finding them, or knowing they were there beforehand. Was shocked when he got killed though, kind of looked like they'd been building for him to have a bit more of a role!

Thought it was a good episode overall. Any scene with Arya and the Hound is brilliant. Oberyn's been much better since the first episode, his scene at the Purple Wedding was brilliant.

My fears for Dany's story are coming true though, fuck all going on there. With the way they've made some of the changes to characters and timelines in the other stories I'd like to see them do that with Dany's story, at least up to the point the books are now. Hard to keep track of all the characters with Hungarian sounding names in the books even.

GOT
Dany is terrible. They're trying to make her noble and heroic but Emilia Clarke just makes it come across as pompous and smug.

GOT
I haven't been that impressed with this season either apart from the purple wedding

in saying that, it's probably down to the extra focus on goings on north of the wall

not a fan of any of that stuff at all, at all

GOT
The Dany stuff is always my least favourite of the whole of GOT. Bugger all happens. She's had one decent moment so far when she reveals she can speak ... I dunno ... whatever language it is she speaks but all this wandering around, freeing slaves nonsense is boring as hell
