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to the Digital Economy Act 2010, but there isn't any statutory procedure for enforcement, and part of the Act has been repealed already.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. Of course, the time I'd take to bleed out will probably be about half an episode, therefore sparing myself no heartache anyway.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

They are more like Hobbits than Elves, in appearance. Or some manner of cross between the two. Both Ancient and childlike, one with nature. They are definitely magical too, so I suppose you are right.

I can't remember if it is mentioned how they managed to get Coldhands onside and what, or who, he is.

The running theory seems to be that he is Jon's uncle, Ned's brother, Benjen Stark. I don't know how well that stands up though.

They're also probably quite panicked. The only reason they're together as an army in the first place is because they want to escape the White Walkers by crossing the wall (which is why Mance hasn't blown his horn to take the wall down), and they've been harried all along their march to the wall by them. They're probably quite spooked.

Jon won't die. I have a theory about that, but I'm not entirely up to speed on the latest episodes. I got up to the end of s3 a while ago but I've just restarted from ep1 so bear with me.

Jon and Sam are the literary embodiments of GRRM himself, Sam is what GRRM sees himself as fat, cowardly and clever, while Jon is what he wishes he could be, athletic, honourable and brave. This concept has parallels in other media e.g. Brian/Stewie in family guy.

As I say, I'm not fully up to date and I've stopped reading the books so I may be entirely wrong.

Jon Snow is a fucking enigma. He will live, because I truly believe he is the trueborn son of Rhaegar Targaryen. The Dragon has 3 heads means "There are 3 Targaryen children left".

Daenerys, Aegon and John. He is destined to ride a dragon into battle against the White Walkers, I think.

I dunno. In ep1 or 2 Ned makes it quite clear that Jon is a Stark. "There has been a Stark guarding the wall for however long, and even though you don't have my name, you are a Stark" and "when we next meet, we'll talk about your mother, I swear it." Unless of course his mother was Ned's sister and the dad was the mad king. It would make sense that Ned wouldn't tell his wife about it then, as Jon would be killed by Robert.

There's always a chance Jon could be the son of a Targaryen woman and Ned too.

I think you're right Jon will ride a dragon in to battle against the white walkers though, because I've noticed during my second run through that virtually everything that happens is predicted in some way by dialogue a few scenes before. King Robert for instance talks about his first kill, some Tarly boy a few scenes before Sam Tarly is introduced, there are honestly dozens of them that I just can't remember right now, the Tarly one is a bit of a weak example. But if I'm right Dany's brother (Vicerys?) does at one point early on say "the brave men didn't kill dragons, they rode them" which heavily implies that dragons will be ridden at some point.

Rhaegar wasn't the mad king. Aerys was the mad king, Rhaegar's dad. Rhaegar was loved by the people, but he "stole" Robert's bird, Lyanna Stark, and he didn't take too kindly and started a rebellion.

Let me put it this way. How the fuck did Ned and Howland Reed kill 3 of the greatest swordsmen to have ever lived? They didn't, is the short answer. They let him to see Lyanna in the tower, who they were guarding instead of the King (because she was carrying a royal baby) where she was lying in her "blood bed" (a term describing childbirth in the GOT universe) and her dying words were "...Promise me, Ned..."

What you say is interesting and has basis, for instance all of Ned's children have brownish hair except Jon, and GRRM does seem to place an inexplicably heavy bias on hair colour determining lineage, but then the Targaryen's all have whitey-blonde hair, unless you see Aerys and Rhaegar in later episodes or books. Then you have the incident where Jon grabbed a lantern to kill a white walker and burnt his hand, if he is a true Targaryen he should be immune to fire. I know Viscerys wasn't but Dany makes a point of saying true Dragons can't be hurt by fire.

We know they didn't have a scratch on them when they turned up in Starfall with Dayne's sword. Also, Ned spent a while there. That is where Wyla, Jon's "official" mother lives who was a wet nurse.

He was telling Lady Dayne what had happened and to create a back story, hell for all we know Ser Dayne went with them to help convince her to create this story before vanishing.

Then there is Edric Dayne. For him to know so much about Jon surprises me, sure the were milk brothers but it seemed more than a passing knowledge of who he was.

Also, Ned's character doesn't seem like the type of man to dishonour a vow. He is too honourable for his own good.

For me the fight between Brienne and The Hound was the nastiest fights I've ever watched, period. It starts out okay but just get fucking worse until it's just two animals mauling each other.

Also no mercy killing from Arya, was it too hard or did she want him to suffer?.

I think that Arya couldn't bring herself to do it, I don't care how much of a hard ass she is, she cares about him. Also I don't think we've seen the last of Sandor.

>Brienne and The Hound will never have giant babies together ;_;

Can we stop having to spoiler everything yet? I fucking hate it.

And I'd like to point out that for the entire fourth season my OP image has sat there with the patently wrong title of "Gregor", whilst it has clearly been Sandor all along.

Why would someone who wants to talk about the series hide this thread? It is for everyone, not just you and the other bloke. When new season time comes around, the previous ones are fair game, but if you even leave it a couple of months before omitting the spoiler tags to give anyone a reasonable chance to watch it no one will complain.

It isn't difficult to tag spoilers and it will hopefully save someone from having it spoiled for them, I really can't fathom why anyone would want to spoil a beloved series like this for someone. The Briene vs Hound fight didn't happen in the books, for example, so it isn't even as if sole watcher of the series would have seen it coming.

He is a Bastard and can hold no lands, it would be an insult for Ned to take him with him to court and Caitlyn hated him for existing so he couldn't stay at Winterfell. On the wall, all men are equal. His Bastard status was irrelevant. His past forgotten, or so he thought.

There's also other subtle tweakings of plotline that they've made from the books to help it better translate to a TV show format, and other new plot points that have been entirely introduced for the TV show which won't have been mentioned in the books, so even I as a book-reader want to have these features preserved. For example, I thought the creation of Robb Stark's little proto-feminist was a fantastic bit of creative licence considering the way they used her in the Red Wedding, and I quite like the little sub-plot they've got going between Missandei and Grey Worm which I find to be quite an interesting examination of the cruelty of castration.

Because there's funny societal rules in most of Westeros about bastards and being "trueborn", ones which Stick-Up-The-Arse-Stark would never cross. Whereas the Boltons, a family of flayers and torturers are decidedly more weaselly sorts who will use dirty politics to further their own ends. Basically it's just not in Ned's character to not play by the rules - and Ramsay Snow is still regarded as "a bastard's a bastard" by the majority of polite society, I think.

And yeah, I get that about Grey Worm. I thought it was a novel perspective anyway, but I agree they definitely shoehorned it in at the wrong moment.

Because most people on boards like this are considerate enough to use the spoiler tags, the use of which is explained in the FAQ, in order to prevent spoiling fiction for users who aren't up-to-date with what's going on.

I haven't posted in this thread before because I can't watch television for longer than five minutes without praying for a nuclear holocaust.

However, I'd like to point out that 'hide' only works until you clear your cookies (which for me and anyone else sane is until you close your browser window).

Piffle. You can't disable a vital internet feature and then moan when you encounter consequences as a result. If you don't have a way to whitelist certain cookies that are obviously necessary to provide basic functionality and aren't realistically used for tracking you don't have a functioning browser. That doesn't mean I think people should skimp on spoiler tags, but they shouldn't be used to accommodate someone like you.

I don't want to throw this thread off topic, so this will be my last post on the subject, but cookies that persist across browsing sessions are hardly a vital internet feature. They may be a convenience for some people (who don't want to have to log back into facebook or gmail every time they close their browser, or whatever), but certainly not vital. If I were disabling cookies entirely then you'd have a point, however flushing them between browsing sessions is simply common sense.

Beyond this, any number of websites recommend that you "clear your cache and cookies and try again" when you're having problems logging in - poof there go all your carefully hidden threads.

Same thing if you browse from your mates laptop, your phone, a fresh install, wherever else. Quick! Hide that thread before you see all the spoilers!

Essentially your whole argument is laughable and you should feel ashamed.

Only that wouldn't involve you intentionally clearing the data that the system relies on to function. Nor was you doing so brought about in an attempt to remedy a technical fault. The technical fault you mention is of course where non-session cookies become malformed and need to be replaced. Non-session cookies don't exist for you! Laughable arguments indeed.

Well, I've finally gotten up to date and all I can say is HOLY FUCKING GOD THAT FIGHT. At first I was all "nah it's not canon, m8, I ain't havin' this" but then it progressed into the most Brienne thing Brienne could ever do against someone as downright nasty as the Hound. It was brutal, angry, and involved her realistically screaming from getting kicked in the cunt. I don't think I've ever enjoyed a fight scene more. I'm tempted to go as far as to say GRR missed a trick by not having those two meet in the books; symbolically it's an excellent meeting for their characters.

Anyway yes. Go Team Brienne. Got hype.

Evidently spoilers offend you in some way. That seems to fit the use case quite nicely.

Well I'd hate to give any spoilers but I have to warn you that these first 4 episodes will probably feel like a slog for you then. That's typical for GoT though; the bombastic bits are always clustered around the middle to end of a season. They're mostly just setting up where everyone is; I'm not particularly looking forward to Arya's storyline in Bravos as I don't feel it's going to translate well to the screen. I am looking forward to Cersei getting her comeuppance at the hands of the Faith though. I hope they do the scene of her public penance justice. It's gonna be savage.

The Bolton lad. I wanted to violate Sansa as Reek watched and cried. Her screams set me off to be honest. Without seeing it acted out, and just hearing the screams, it felt like watching porn for the first time. Immediate hard on. In any event, I have been researching a lot, and as it turns out, it seems like I perhaps watch too much porn. Or maybe I'm just sick beyond repair.

I can't come to terms with this, so I will try and suppress it.

Popping out quotation marks when they haven't been used in my post is the height of rudeness. And yes, rape fantasies crop up a hell of a lot in anonymised discussion such as those the Internet facilitates. Fucking hell, I even recall reading an agony aunt letter in the Graun about it a few years ago - if Dear Marietta can handle the length and breadth of human sexuality and separate fantasy from reality I'm struggling to understand why you can't.

Furthermore, I'm not going to get into a discussion on sexuality with someone who is purposefully misusing the definition of the word "fetish". You are woefully and obviously out of your depth, now piss off.

Rape is an extremely common sexual fantasy, which is about power for both involved.

However, not many people male or female fantasise about being held/holding someone against the their will in an alley at knife point.

It is a fantasy, and therefore not real. It is acted out consensually in safety by both involved.

The scene being referred to is very typical of the kind scenario a fantasy rape would unfold in, minus the cuckold element, which is why both men and women alike found it arousing. The actress herself liked it.

You are equating a violent sex crime with an erotic power fantasy, which is reactionary and seeks to poison the well of discussion on the subject. Stop it.

I'm guessing because it's simply anecdotal evidence and only supports the argument that particular actress did or didn't claim to have enjoyed it. You don't even know if she was telling the truth, her experience was unique, not actual rape and doesn't apply to anyone else. Even if you can find evidence of any of these things it doesn't have a lot to do with if it's moral/acceptable or not.

I don't even know where to begin with this level of cognitive dissonance. Your argument is essentially "b-but she might be lying about finding it enjoyable!" when several people in this thread have made it clear that rape play is a thing people do and get off on. I used to go out with a girl who liked me to "rape her" which involved me breaking into the house at a pre-planned day and time and having my way with her while she pretended to fight me off.

Yes, I enjoyed it. What have morals or whether or not you find this acceptable got to do with anything?

You're conflating a violent sex crime with a bedroom sex game again, love.

The latter doesn't make you a criminal and incase you missed the earlier explanations, aren't actually rapes.

The point of this tedious argument is that a lad found a scene in GoT arousing and would probably enjoy a bit of consensual rape play and some bloody God botherers are trying to make out he is a closet rapist.

The scene didn't depict any violence, in the context of the GoT universe it wasn't even rape and she knew what they were in that bedroom for. The bedding ceremony is a legal obligation for the Husband and Wife to legitimise the marriage.

Now, the context of the act is what the lad found arousing and as said a million fucking times by this point, the very probably reason for that is because it looked like every other rape fantasy I've ever read or heard about.

Because celebrities never say untrue things in interviews. That's one of five reasons I gave you and you just picked up on that one to disagree with. My only prior contribution to this thread was being the first to point out that rape fantasies are common among women. That would put me on your side, wouldn't it? But no. I don't give a fuck about the outcome of the debate, I'm just pointing out that her allegedly making that claim is irrelevant, poorly thought out argumentation. Much like this poster >>19565 who isn't even trying. Your own personal anecdotal evidence isn't doing much to prove your point either. All you're going to end up doing is continuing this pointless cunt-off, derailing the thread until some of you clarify what your point is and find some actual evidence to support it.

And right there is where you crossed the line from borderline plausible to blatant troll. I expected far more finesse from .gs. 2/10, see me after class.

The rest of the thread is now about sad Jorah Mormont learning that Daddy Mormont died at the Fist of the First Men, and Cersei Lannister's impending undoing at the hands of a bunch of feral fundamentalists.

I've been thinking that GOT has been losing me this season. So far it has been super bland. The pseudocontroversy about Sansa in the latest episode struck me as weird due to all the way more heinous stuff that befell Theon previously.

This latest comic relief stunt with fucking the Tesco Value Prawn Cocktail of musicaural beige curtains ofarchbishops of blandness Coldplay has made me realise that this show has jumped the shark at a previous date, and that I'm not really that interested in it anymore now that I've seen Nathalie Emmanueli's bewbs.

Do you think they can write a scene that doesn't have several tonnes of foreshadowing? I feel as though someone told the writers the definition of "symbolism" just before they sat down to write this series.

I was speaking more about the visual metaphors, like when Jon walks in behind Aemon after he talks about "a Targaryan alone in the world is a terrible thing". Or in the most recent episode with Shireen playing with her stag in the foreground with a fire in the background.

Note, it was a dead direwolf with a stags antlers rammed through its throat. And then they find the puppies, and everyone thinks Jon doesn't get one. But then at the last minute he looks back and discovers that he has the most special wolf of all, one that had crawled away from the dead Wolf.

It's meant to be cringe-worthy and vicariously embarrassing. That chapter was from the point of view of Samwell Tarly, who is a coward and a scaredy-cat who is prone to panic. Just like Cersei's chapters are filled with descriptions of how cool, calculated, poisonously sweet and amazing she is (when we know she isn't, that nobody is fooled by her and that everyone thinks she is an idiot), Sam's chapters are infused with his personality. Every single Sam chapter where something happens to him makes you want to cringe - his head when the Other attacks him in the wildling village is filled with terror and confusion, which is put across in the text.

Ordering pizza takeaway is weird.

Or, you know, you can buy a pizza from the supermarket and chuck it in the oven in less time than it takes to order takeaway. Sainsbury's will even cook it for you for a bit extra if you're too moronic to operate an oven.

Out of all the pizza takeout places around, I like Domino's the best, with Papa John's a close second. I do actually enjoy them, horribly overpriced though they may be. I get delivery a few times a year, usually in one of those hangover-comedown-from-hell type situations where I really can't bring myself to leave the house or cook a real meal. They're obviously not good food but they're also not that bad.

Pizza Hut is much closer to the pizzas you get in supermarkets i.e. cardboard-tasting shite, but you can get two for £7 on a Tuesday, which is basically the same price as the more edible supermarket ones, and I might as well have some other cunt cook it if I'm feeling that desperate. I rarely am, but will sometimes get dragged into it by my housemate.

I used to make my own pizza quite often but it's not really ideal; I keep mature cheddar in as standard, which tends to either overpower or not provide enough cheesy bulk depending on how much you put on top. Mild works better but I don't use it anywhere else and I don't like buying a block of cheese just for one or two meals. A nice thick, home-made wholemeal bread base with a good amount of basil/oregano/garlic in the tomato sauce works well with mature cheddar (and the result is genuinely delicious) but that's a lot of work for what is, to my mind, "easy comfort food". The alternative (using shop-bought pizza bases/sauces) is just fucking nasty and represents the worst of all worlds - most of the ballache of making a half-decent meal with none of the payoff.

I'd guess that a delivery service isn't really something you can half-arse, rather it's a complex affair that requires multiple extra members of staff (or significant reorganisation, at the least) and probably some red tape to drudge through. Might be wrong.

There are Italian places nearish, I'm sure they do much better pizza than any of the franchises mentioned, and a dedicated delivery service just started up who will ferry food from a restaurant to your door, but then I'd be looking at upwards of £20 for a pizza and that's not going to happen.

Depends, when I last went to the Italian place I'm on about it was just me and the LADS. One of the staff could probably have driven out, I'm only about 3 minutes away by road (so 8 mins round trip including the transaction). I'd happily pay them in advance via bank transfer.

Can I point out that the reference to Dominos was meant for maroon and not to be taken to heart?

I thought this was legend, obviously not, but he once furnished us with his transaction history over the past month or so he was going through a rough patch and it was entirely Dominos. He hadn't left the shed for at least 4 weeks, presumably building totems of digital idolatry. Some of you may remember it, but I suppose in hindsight it was probably too obscure a reference.

Still, .gs will inevitably be .gs. Someone would have kicked off over wild fyre vs traditional wood fired stone baked and, The Mother save us, we'd be back to square one anyway.

Why, in the name of all that is Holy, did they kill off the only man left in Westeros other than Littlefinger who knows what the fuck is going on or has any sort of plans? Don't even get me started on them calling Sunspear "Dorne" I think Benioff and Weiss actively hate this show.

Alright, my brain doesn't hurt anymore.

So I liked the legal loophole Jon used to get out of the Night's Watch, but that inevitably means he'll walk right by Sansa and company, or at least he would if this was The Walking Dead.

And everyone but me has forgotten that Littlefinger is marching on Winterfell with the Knight's of the Eyrie, which means I'm the smartest. Also the chap that delivered babby Stark and Osha is definitely playing Ramsey. However, you should bare in mind that I'm the OP of this thread and I was adamant Cersei done the doings.

Speaking of which, it's good to see Cersei hasn't learnt anything and seemingly never, ever will. But maybe you don't need to learn things when you have an 8 foot tall zombie berserker.

And it looks like Arya might be relevant again soon. So hurrah for that.

I think the series is starting to get a bit silly now. Magic hand grenades? Zombies crawling along a sealing at the same speed as the zombies running? Sansa being able to make intricate clothing with no material or time?

Predictions:
Brothel-man has told Sansa a lie and is making his own run at the throne with that boy. I think everyone sees this coming.

The Ironborn will succeed in getting the Dragon Queen on side but then the fleet will be destroyed en route to westeros wiping out her whole army. I doubt Dothraki can swim.

Cersei will use her abomination in trial by combat but the high sparrow will destroy it somehow. Cleganebowl will never happen.

Kings Landing will be destroyed in riots when the old woman's army tries to storm it and High Sparrow will be killed which will only make his cult more dangerous.

(A good day to you Sir!)

That last scene was horrible. That, New Starts beheading/that whole story arc and the red wedding (mostly the stabbing in the womb bit) are the only bits that have affected me.

Wasn't he being wogged at the time?

That kid is a total asswipe anyway why not make him at least say something useful that would perhaps make sure all this bullshit never happens (with the Lannisters but I suppose you could also take over one the tree people before they made zombies if we're changing history)

Actually, Ned Stark was so named because his parents heard echoes through time of GRRM shouting "new start" over and over in panic after seeing what a load of dog shit his work had come to be.

Hey can I join in talking about the all the Thrones and Starks now guys? I watched some of it over my missus's shoulder in bed yesterday. There was lots of people killing each other and one of them was clearly a nasty piece of work because he was constantly smirking from atop a horse. Wasn't he nasty!

Not much to talk about really besides the usual 'wait who the fuck was he again' like that dead horse bloke even though he was introduced only a couple of episodes ago.

I remember reading an interesting point actually of how the series has evolved since its gone past the source material and especially how fan complaints are influencing the writing. Namely all the people who got mad about violence on women have won and now women run nearly everything. Aside from John Snow who is going to be the Hugh Grant of GoT.

I've kept up with it. Although watching this season has made me realise that I don't actually enjoy the show itself and am mostly just interested in seeing how they translate the book to screen. Without knowing the extra material included in the books, particularly the internal monologuing , it seems a lot shallower.
