Re: What to watch on TV

Parts Unknown is the only good show on CNN.

Re: Game of Thrones (no book spoilers)

I haven't read the books but I loved the finale, probably my favorite finale so far because it feels like the entire series has been setting up the moment that Verys and Littlefinger take out the Lannister's. They didn't even need the Verys flyover, they did a great job of showing the viewer that t...

Re: Diplomacy- Winner England (Titanfan)

3 year old bump for this m Thanks. The level of play seems very low for a World Championship event. My own introduction to Diplomacy happened in high school. The best player was Beth who later went on to be valedictorian. When she backstabbed her ally for the win, she gave him a candy bar right bef...

Re: Game of Thrones (no book spoilers)

In the book, 1) When Mance offers a peaceful solution, Jon doesn't believe Aliser Thorne will accept it. 2) Stannis doesn't demand that Jon Snow kneel before him. But Jon kneels before him anyways and calls him "your Grace." 3) Stannis never asks Jon for instructions on how to handle the W...

Re: Game of Thrones (no book spoilers)

If I was writing it I'd have the Lannisters make a deal with the mother of dragons and sandwich the shizzle out of that Stannis turd when he attacks "It is not a question of wanting. The throne is mine, as Robert's heir. That is law. After me, it must pass to my daughter, unless Selyse should ...

Re: Game of Thrones (no book spoilers)

Since I have some time to kill, quick thoughts on the show so far, Oberyn vs. The Mountain: The fight was great. The buildup was very good. Pablo Pascal was fantastic. Great job HBO. When I read the book, I was 100% positive Oberyn was going to win. Still can't get over it. Missandei: I love the act...

Re: Game of Thrones (no book spoilers)

I'll have to re-read that, but I recall Littlefinger basically demeaning The Fingers and he has those droll interactions with his servants. He's right though, The Fingers sounds like a dour place to live. To me, it was Littlefinger being self-deprecating. He actually came off quite endearing. Becau...

Re: Game of Thrones (no book spoilers)

I think where the series falls short is character development. Of course, the books don't have the medium restrictions a series of 10-episode TV seasons has which makes it an unfair comparison. However, if they trimmed a few pointless scenes in favor of more constructive buildup, it could only bene...
