Are you all just going to pretend this isn't happening?

I assume everyone's already illegally downloaded last nights episode? If so you'll definitely understand my next question...

WHO DONE THE DOINGS WHAT DID GET DONE!?

I'm reckoning Cersei at a daring 50/1.

Haven't read the books.

I know it's pointless to extrapolate these sort of things from TV series, since usually nobody cares enough, but the cup was put down empty at fish-face-but-I'd-fuck-her, then there's a shot of Cersei being handed a refilled glass of wine, then Tyrion doesn't refill Joffrey's mug but it has wine in it anyway.

Well, yes, it was still a murder on the Orient Express, it's still illegally downloading a television show. It doesn't really matter how many people commit the crime, it's still a crime.

Of course, I realise that I just compared murder to watching a TV show online, so no need to point out that absurdity.

The current situation is a little weird. As far as I can tell, copyright infringement for non-commercial purposes is illegal according to the Digital Economy Act 2010, but there isn't any statutory procedure for enforcement, and part of the Act has been repealed already.

Normally, copyright infringement would be a case for the civil courts, but there's no real point in suing someone who isn't making money out of it.

Filesharing is illegal, but pretty much only on paper. It's not even remotely cost effective to pursue wide-scale enforcement, and I doubt it ever will be. From what I can make out, the worst fine you could make would be £2500 paid to Ofcom, so the copyright holder wouldn't even make any money out of it- and then there'd be billions in the government coffers and out of consumers' pockets, which doesn't do anyone but the government any favours.

Granted this is after only about ten minutes of research. I think that if half the country managed to dodge jail for not turning up for longbow practice for years, we might all be able to dodge this law, too, though.

The show had been spoiled for me so many times (I actively spoil it for myself) that I feel I know what is happening, but then I don't. Maybe I am too absent minded. What happened in the latest episode caught me by surprise although I knew to some degree that something like that would happen. Although I have been told numerous times who might be behind it or whatever, I forget and I have no clue.

Not him, but not everyone enjoys reading. This is their only exposure to the series and something they have no frame of reference to disbelieve.

I have read the books, so I know it isn't true, but "The Hound doesn't kill Brienne" is still as much of spoiler as "The Hound killed Brienne" for people who haven't read them.

In a thread where any kind of spoilers will ruin someone's enjoyment of the show, your facetious humour is inappropriate and unwelcome.

I only made the post saying she doesn't get killed by the Hound. Which isn't anything like as much of a spoiler as saying it did happen (if it did) in any case. There are thousands of things that don't happen to her, that happens to be one of them. And maybe I'm just trying to cover for him in any case, trying to appear certain that this doesn't happen, so that the shock of it would be the same is if it were never brought to any non-book reader's attention.

Anyway, if anybody is that concerned about spoilers a) take them with a pinch of salt, half of them aren't true anyway, or b) maybe think about reading the books you twat, they're not exactly Dostoevsky.

How difficult they are to read isn't really an issue, if someone is in a sort of Wont Cook mentality. I wouldn't exactly call them remedial by any stretch, either.

There are tons of books for me to enjoy, but not many TV programmes. I don't read the books because I think they'll get in the way of my shared enjoyment (with friends, the girlfriend) of the programme. If they were works of literary genius, fair enough, but from what I've read they really aren't.

What a sad, sad, oh so very sad episode.

I should've known given the joy of the opening episode that is was only going to go downhill. If next weeks' episode doesn't have Gatiss turning to camera and telling a funny story from when he was working on LoG then I'll probably just slash open my wrists halfway through.

Spoiling all this because I'm nice, it doesn't give much away but enough for the first couple of episodes. It has three different stories which are slowly intertwining.

The first story is about a massive civil war in Westeros, a united kingdom ("The Seven Kingdoms") the size of Western Europe, between two noble house families, rebel House Stark and incumbent House Baratheon And Lannister, who seized the throne from the Targaryen dynasty several decades before the beginning of the show in an armed rebellion due to the king of the time, Aerys II Targaryen, who was famously insane.

The second story is about The Wall, a monumental wall of ice 300 miles long and 700 feet high, which is built on the northern border of the kingdom. It is manned by an order called the Night's Watch, who are sworn into service for life and may not marry or have children, and forego all claims to inheritance. Most of them are convicted criminals who faced the option between joining the Night's Watch or being executed. Beyond the wall are the Wildlings, who call themselves the Free Folk, and who always present a constant menace. They have been the main focus of the Night's Watch for many centuries. However, ancient monsters from legend (The Others, or White Walkers) begin to reappear. They can defeat the strongest opponent with ease, and have the ability to reanimate their dead opponents. They must content with desertion, constant attacks and many of their men never returning from their journeys north of The Wall.

The third story is about the only remaining family members of House Targaryen, Daenerys and Viserys, who are in exile in the eastern continent, called Estos. At the beginning, Daenerys is to be married to Khal Drogo, the leader of an immense army of horse-riding raiders who belong to a people called the Dothraki (they are sort of like the Mongols). The plan is basically that Khal Drogo will cross the Narrow Sea separating Estos and Westeros and conquer the Iron Throne of Westeros and restore their birthright. Many consider this story to be their favourite.

There are a good few 'story fragments' which follow these three main stories or result from them, but are not of them. This is due to the source books using a POV style of writing, which gives each character their own unique story inside the main story. All in all, this is a very nice gem of a show, and well worth your time to watch. You have nothing to lose, really.

Essos*.

But apart from that that's quite a nice overview of the first season. The story relies quite heavily on political intrigue and who's dicking over who. In that way it reminds me quite a lot of Rome, so that might give you a good indication of whether you've got the attention span for those sorts of dramatics.

Now, on the topic of the most recent episode, what the fuck was that at the end and why did it remind me of Dead Snow? And does anyone else get the sense that they're cramming far too much story into too little screen time? I'm not sure I'd be able to understand what the fuck was going on without having knowledge of the books for a reference, it makes me wonder how people who've only ever seen the TV series are coping.

As someone who hasn't read the books I'm coping well enough. Remembering all the bollocks Little Finger is up to is irritating that fucker wants the throne, doesn't he?, and was he that Irish sounding in previous series? But it can feel a tad rushed when you're going between 5 or so distinct locations in under an hour.

The bit at the end with the White Walkers was good, as they're definitely the most mysterious part of the show right now. It's an interesting chicken or the egg situation they have going on. And what happened to that huge bloody army they had at the end of the last series? Or am I underestimating just how far away they were?

Oh, and if anything bad happens to Bran Inc. I will be seriously pissed. Can't wait for those fucking deserters to bite it.

>But it can feel a tad rushed when you're going between 5 or so distinct locations in under an hour.
Yes, I suppose that might have something to do with it.

I think I'm in a weird position because I started off with the TV series, then read all the books in preparation for the fourth season, so I've got two sources of knowledge battling themselves in my head.

>they're definitely the most mysterious part of the show right now.
Trust me, they're the most mysterious part of the books too. The further along I got in the reading the more I started to agree with criticisms of Martin that go along the lines of "he's just bloody making it all up as he goes along" - which he cannily explains away as "ho ho I'm just keeping my readers on their toes". Are you, George, are you, or are you just scattering plot devices like so much ground pepper over these bloody things without resolving anything at fucking all and laughing all the way to the bank.

Look all I'm saying is that there'd better bloody be a whole lot of tying up plotlines in the 7th book or I'm going to cut someone.

I WISH I KNEW HOW TO QUIT YOU

Remember there are over 60 main characters right now in the books. The show simply doesn't have the budget to pay an actor's salary with so many characters, so they have to change stuff around, combine characters etc. For example, they had Gendry fill the role of both himself and Edric Storm It's the price one has to pay for making it on a screen. For the most part, I think they're going to move forward in the same direction as the book, even if the particulars aren't the same.

Yeah, every time I hear him speak it's like someone's licking my ear lobe and not in a friendly way. Maybe that's the point; I still want him dead.

And yes or no; have the White Walkers come south of the wall yet?

Also perhaps your problem is that as the TV show and the books become more and more disparate you're probably going to get more and more confused.

I think used those semi colons correctly.

DO NOT read this if you haven't read to at least A Feast of Crows.

They can't come south of the wall. It is sort of a major plot point.

In the books, there is a gate in the Nightfort (one of the castles on the wall; there are 12 or 13) under the wall itself. It is sentient and mentioned that magical creatures cannot cross the wall. It lets Sam and Gillie through, because Sam is a Night Watchmen and lets Bran and company through (which is how they got North of The Wall) but wouldn't let Coldhands cross the threshold). The Wall has really powerful magic that means its core will never melt, also.

However, there was a horn that was buried with one of the First Men in the Skirling Pass that can bring down the wall. Mance Rayder has it, but it's broken. The White Walkers need that horn to be blown in order to leave The North.

The horn that Mance has is a fake though, right? I always thought that the cloven horn that Sam is carrying in Bravos is the special horn

Yeah, I think so. I read it 5 years ago, so I think I'm a bit hazy on the specifics. I knew I was roughly right. I had forgotten he had that, actually.

Isn't winter supposed to be coming? I seem to remember thinking in the first season that this world has a summer and winter cycles that lasts for decades and as a result this show was going to start resembling The Road by the end of it.

>>16590
The biggest problem I'm having is trying to remember parts of the plot that resurface from years ago. I had similar issues with Breaking Bad where after a year I couldn't remember anything at all from the plot.

Mad Men seems to be far better at using the recaps for this but then I suppose the story is simpler.

You want a plain colon in that question:

>And yes or no: have the White Walkers come south of the wall yet?

>every time I hear him speak it's like someone's licking my ear lobe and not in a friendly way.

That...that is certainly a unique and unnervingly accurate description of it yes.

I know what you mean about remembering things from years ago. It was a lot easier watching two episodes a day when I was catching up on the second series.

>>16605

Dan-Dan's cray-cray, right? I feel like her running out of reasons to have people killed won't actually stop her having people killed. Also her blue dress must be pretty gross by now, bloody change already.

And what's happening to these cities she's attacking once she buggers off? There's thousands of kilometers separating these places and all she's really doing is destroying the functionality of these places and then pissing off with a handful more camp followers.

Yay or nay: do her dragons ever do anything ever again?

Did I do better?

I think show Dany is 18+ so it's technically not a noncing. Book Dany, on the other hand, is 13 on when Drogo ploughs the shit out of her.

So if she's pretty it's not creepy? I'm pretty sure that 15 year old girl quite fancied Jeremy Forest, he still went to prison for noncing her.

Good to see you're thinking this. She is determined to free the slaves because she lived so much of her own life in "slavery" to her brother. She sees how the slaves of the bay are suffering, and says to herself "I shall free all of these slaves" without thinking of the practicalities and consequences of doing so. It's an idealistic choice made by an idealistic person, but it's going to come around and bite her on the bum pretty soon.

Yeah, good post. Stay tuned, basically. This story arch is actually going somewhere quite good, Daenerys probably has the best character development outside of Arya and Jon Snow, maybe even better.

Spoilers.

She learns a lot from her experiences in Slaver's Bay, the ways of war and how to run a kingdom in a city full of people who want you dead. All of Dani's story arch right up until the end of A Dance with Dragons is building towards her eventual taming of Drogon, the black dragon, and becoming a wise leader, but also foe that must be feared.

Haha, did you make that? Good work regardless.

Funnily enough when I posted >>16608 I was thinking how it's similar to what Rumsfeld did with Iraq.

Stop fucking posting spoilers already I'm shaking with temptation every time I scroll past.
