    Catelyn- The Queen is coming, and her brothers. . .
    Ned- The Kingslayer and the Imp.

    There you go D&D, it almost seems natural too!

    Euron Greyjoy should have been introduced in season 5. They should have taken time to build him up. We should have seen him running amick in Essos. Then when he reappears on The Iron Islands it would have been more meaningful. Instead in season 6 you ask yourself who is this guy?

        Someone relying entirely on subtext? I think we know why fandoms are born and thrive with that kind of malarkey. (Me: Looking at you, Supernatural.)

                  The Dragon speed problem. Dragons are mythical creatures so surely they could be as fast or slow as you want them to be because their fictional creatures and nobody knows how fast a dragon flew through the air.

                    There is a group of people running hollywood, and they just give out jobs for the boys. As long as you belong to the group, you get handed the keys to the kingdom, it is not a meritocracy. That's why screen names exist .. it's so they can hide the fact that they all belong to the same group.

                      This is great stuff. Honestly I'm shocked at how bad their writing is. This is beyond amateur. The dialogue was often excellent .. but they completely fail at the nuts and bolts of conveying information and simple character reference within the script. However, a lot of these fails fall on the director's shoulders. The director is supposed to get the story from the page onto the screen, or invent it if it's not there. It helps if it's all on the page, but sometime it's not.

                        This worries me cos Cogman is gunna be working on the Lotr Second Age series too. Hope the other writers on it compensate

                          The Dragon Demands I heard before Cogman was meant to be hired as ‘lore master’ whatever that means, but I shouldn’t worry if they have serious people like Tom Shipey and the Tolkien estate supervising

                        Remember hearing bit of the script from Maisie Williams and or Gwendoline Christie that in the bit when the two meet Arya had it in the scripts that she thinks Brienne a weirdo but likes her. It makes me wish the show runners were animators instead of writers because it drilled into the bones of animators that clear visuals that tell things clearly. Not “oh people will get it” and then being shocked when some people didn’t or some people didn’t get it because they badly executed it

                          Saw funny thing when Kyle MacLachlan said when filming with David Lynch he would be abstract in his instructions like “Be like Elvis” 😂 but these script saying things so information specific . How the fuck do they think audiences will pick up on such specific things. It also explains why many actors clash with people’s responses because they had it laid out in the script so to the actor it makes sense

                          • Ekaterina Ponizovskaya Devine

                            I did not pick up at all that Sansa was trying to warn Brianna. And actually, everything was confusing there. I remember later Podric saying something that maybe Sansa doesn't need her. If so then later near Winterfell Sansa says she is not going to marry Boltons and LF first says "ok, we will turn around if you don't want" then he gives her few reasons why she should and she agrees. Was she scared to disagree? I didn't see her scared of LF, more as she agreed with LF's plan.

                                Some of the 1st things I was taught in scriptwriting classes were:
                                1. don't write "the camera shows this and that", just write what is on the screen;
                                2. don't use actors as puppets, it's bad writing and they hate it;
                                3. the script will never be seen by the audience, so things have to be clear on screen, not just on the page.


                                Honestly, it's shocking how they bluffed their way to getting the two pilots done, then got eight seasons. The poster boys for "fake it until you make it". And worst of all, it doesn't look like they tried to learn. Not from listening to experienced screenwriters, or reading a manual, or reading well-written scripts.


                                No wonder the feeling I had when the series ended was "If I handed that in as an assignment, my teacher wouldn't take it and would make me rewrite the whole thing."

                                  D&D are masters at gaslighting their audience: "what do you mean you didn't see Daenerys' tyranny coming? IT'S WAS RIGHT THERE IN HER SMILE SINCE SEASON 5."

                                      Did D&D described in the script annotations for Beyond the Wall the existence of scuba zombies putting the chains on to dead Viserion?

                                        Why would there be a dock with huge chains like that in a random lake?

                                        D&D literally are hacks... they know nothing about what they're doing _and_ they're talentless. "Subversion" _is_ a hack fraud mantra.

                                          I recently found out that these losers did Wolverine, the turd that made me boycott all Xmen movies after that. I guess I will not go to the cinema or pay for their Star Wars films either, they haven't changed.

                                          I feel vindicated now because after raging about how dumb and horrible Wolverine (Origin) was, my friends thought I was overreacting. So I'm not mad or too critical, it was just a Dumb & Dumber plot.

                                          Thanks for your video comments, at least I feel a bit better now.

                                            That explains why Arya's sexscene was so cringe-y. They have no idea what they are doing and can't portray emotions during sex other than raw lust and rape.

                                              A bit a find interesting. Stephan Warbeck was originally slated to compose the soundtrack but left for some reason. Ramin Djawadi was only brought on ten weeks prior to the season 1 premiere. If the timeline works out I think that means Warbeck's music was featured in the Pilot. God, I hope they release it someday.

                                                      Kinda old news but I read somewhere online that D&D threaten Kit Harington by sending him shots and scenes of the failed unaired pilot. Any thoughts as to why they need to threaten him? Could their reasons for threatening him be the same reason they had him do nothing in the long night?

                                                      14:40 The answer to the question of where the chains came from is simple.

Not empathy exactly but the inability to see how another person could view the exact same stimuli and be affected differently/come to a different conclusion - the "putting yourself in someone else's shoes" effect, if you will.

                                                            You should watch the scene I think it was Season 5 after Sansa went with the Boltons and Littlefinger is in King's Landing talking with Cersei where he says "make me Warden of the north". I always thought this was the strangest thing, it's as if they are not even in the same room. Aiden Gillen seems like he's looking at the void as if Cersei is not there. I don't know if it was done on purpose but it is so strange. Like the actors are not working with one another.

                                                              Sometimes production schedules lead to shooting different shots without the other one there. Maybe the dialogue was redone? I don't know, it could be anything.

                                                            D&D are idiots. As soon as GRRM wasn’t there to hold their hands, it’s consistently gotten worse. As far as portraying information to audience, I didn’t really ever think about that, because I had read the books several times before the show came out. I never thought about how confusing it would be for audiences that had no idea about the story.

I never put together that was the dude in the Brotherhood without Banners that Arya meets up with because I don’t believe we really get introduced to Beric in season 1. Ned just mentions him and that’s it. It wasn’t until I watched the series for the third or fourth time that I put it together.

                                                            Actually the scene you’re talking about, the slaver tells Daenerys her reign is over. She responds, saying my reign has just begun, she mounts Drogon and burns ships that are throwing stones at Mereen, and Greworm kills the two slavers who throw the other one under the bus.

It seems so much like what happened to us".....and yeah, it does. The dream world of self-delusion and yes-men they live in. How did someone let this happen? Let Benioff & Weiss happen? Someone screwed up. HBO screwed up.

When there is no more written material for them to lean on, the vale is pulled away leaving only the idiot. D&D lack the imagination to conceive of half the literary works that George RR Martin put to paper.

They perfectly translated the books to high quality television when there was book material, which in of itself takes talent and allot of work. Not to mention they ran out of books by season 6, and season 6 was still a great season. It's only when it came down to ending it did it feel rushed and disjointed. The show is still a great show regardless, it just bounces in quality towards the end. D&D are great at what they know how to do, they aren't great writers, which is totally fine. They fucked up thinking they can write the ending of the show instead of getting a qualified experienced writer. But I get it, this is the internet and we all gotta rage and call people stupid idiots and now be civil or logical at all.
