re: Game of Thrones S7 E6 "Beyond The Wall" MAESTERS THREAD NO SPOILERS - Methuselah
[quote]I honestly find the premise hilarious that we have real, live dragons in Westeros but people regularly scoff at the mention of white walkers/wights. Even after they've seen/dealt with the dragons and even more "magical" shite (see: Dany, Ceresi, even Tyrion to a degree, the Maesters, etc.). [...

re: Game of Thrones S7 E6 "Beyond The Wall" MAESTERS THREAD NO SPOILERS - Methuselah
I've held out from watching the episode ahead of time. Wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. FWIW, I agree with those who say the plan was kind of silly and was really done to get a Magnificent 7/Fellowship episode. If they had to do it, they could have at least included Jamie in it. If C...

re: GoT Middle Ground Thread - SN 7 - NO LEAK DISCUSSION ALLOWED - Book discussion okay - Methuselah
Bottom line I think is they wanted to have a group of popular characters go on a mission north of the wall and skirmish with the NK, WW and Army of the Dead. Something with a "fellowship of the ..." or "magnificent seven" or "suicide squad" vibe. Sure they kind of shoe horned the rationale for i...

Recommend some HBO series for me to binge while I have the subscription for GoT - Methuselah
I know I want to watch the latest season of Silicon Valley. And I'm pretty sure I'm gonna give WestWorld a try. And I've already watched all of Entourage, Rome & Band of Brothers. Other than those, what is the best of the best to binge on HBO On Demand or HBOGO while I have the subscriptio...

[quote]I would love the Hounds reaction to that. [/quote] Man, I REALLY hope they give us some good character interactions on that wight hunting trip. The Hound and just about anybody. Tormond and just about anybody. Beric and Jon. Jorah and Jon. Jorah and Tormond. Gendry and Beric. Gendry ...

[quote]I'm not so sure about that. If you recall, Sam questioned why there was no smell if they had been dead so long. Those bodies had already been exposed to white walker voodoo and were just pretending to be re-dead.[/quote] Then they should have been able to haul Uncle Benjen/Coldhand's froze...

re: How Many Authors of Books are TD members? - Methuselah
[quote]I never wrote a book. But in high school I was HS baseball and softball reporter for the Opelousas Daily World. Oddly enough, my HS paper didn't let me write for them, so I got a paying gig with the Daily World (right after Gannett took ownership, when they still cared about covering local ...

[quote]The assumption is that he's a master warg that is controlling every wight like Bran was controlling multiple ravens, right? So yeah, it seems like that's certainly possible. Although if a wight is south of the wall it's basically a spy for the NK so he might want to let it happen[/quote] N...

re: Why did the GoT crew decide to use British actors? - Methuselah
Well, I don't know for sure which came first - the chicken or the egg. But since they seem to film the majority of their stuff (at least the indoor stuff) in Northern Ireland, it just kind of makes sense that they would use a lot of actors from the British Isles. I guess it's possible that the...

re: GoT Middle Ground Thread - SN 7 - NO LEAK DISCUSSION ALLOWED - Book discussion okay - Methuselah
Thanks for starting the thread. Hopefully, those who have seen or read about the leaks can have the self restraint to stay out of this thread entirely. About bringing back a wight (they should actually bring more than one in case something happens to one): It would be kind of funny if they hau...

re: GoT S7 E5 "Eastwatch" MAESTERS THREAD - Methuselah
Jon is definitely getting close to a standard hero trope. He even has the hidden prince thing going. (Sometimes when things about R+L+J come up I involuntarily flash back to the SpaceBalls scene with Lonestar - "I'm a Prince" :lol:) Though he has through the series been portrayed more realisti...

[quote]That's fair, but I feel like a lot of people would be pissed if that happened lol. Just once I want a big show to not make most of it's fan base happy and do something truly unexpected. [/quote] Yeah. I can see that point of view. To be honest, I think the rep the show (and even the book...
