    If you think Jon Snow is dumb in the books then you have no idea of what you are talking about. Jon Snow is giving good advice to Stannis, the guy who is making peace with the Wildlings and using them to defend the Wall, the guy who is taking a loan from the Iron Bank to buy food and build a glass house like the one in Winterfell to grow food during the winter, the guy who is rebuilding and manning the abandoned castles in the Wall, the guy who had to explain over and over why is important to save the Wildlings and not let them die, if they die they join the army of the dead. Don’t confuse Show Jon with book Jon, and don’t forget that Jon in the books is 15 or 16 years old. Book Jon makes mistakes but that doesn’t make him dumb. He is actually very smart for his age.

    New to channel, subbed and checking out alot of your vids. I appreciate your perspective, and it's nice to hear about comic origins from someone that makes me laugh, and speaks their own opinion too. You remind me of when i used to visit california before the "dark ages".

    Your Sansa hate is ridiculous. Grrm said in his recent 60 mins interview that all the major characters in the show will have the same ending as the books. The show isn’t trying to do anything but fulfill GRRM endgame. Since you don’t understand the import of her character, you have no understanding of the books. And should stop podcasting. I know you won’t. Look forward to your bitter rant of episode 6.🥂

      I like his opinions on the show but when he talks about the books he has no idea of what he is talking about.

    but it was great to finally see John becoming a Dragonrider :)

    Sansa has been made more important by writers of the show because Sophie Turner became a famous actress. She needs more screen time, and HBO needs more ratings...

    Man, leave George alone.
    He's old and humans slow down when they get older.
    He's also really busy being pulled in 10 directions at once.
    Putting pressure onto a creative force is counter productive.
    Surely you know this??
    Leave him be.

    Robert jordan never intended to finish the wheel of time books either.. He left notes for after he died and Brandon Sanderson finished the story.

    Wow I wholeheartedly agree with everything you said with your review even down to the night-king, the episode was definitely meh,

  • BlackRobin71
    BlackRobin71 6 months ago +3

    The fact that they spent all that money for a new opening credit sequence showing the progression of the Night King makes me believe that he won't be defeated next episode. I think the battle against the Night King will play out all the way through episode five. Episode six being something of an epilogue.

  • Alexandre Martins

    John didn't bend the knee, the stiffened the dick for Danerys.
    And I don't think they will even get a whiff of the White Walkers and the Wights at King's Landing. The North will defeat them and (hopefully) Arya will kill Sersei (my only concern is the Mountain zombie), and the rest of Westeros will keep believing the Walkers were just a story. I only hope that something of them remains, because I'm 100% sure the God of Light is a bastard and I want to see his (its?) war with the Darkness continue in an endless cycle, as it's supposed to be.

  • Alexandre Martins

    I and a friend were pondering who (probably more than one) will sacrifice themselves to kill the Night King, even though I'm actually rooting for him.

    What happened to your voice. Doomcock? Did STD get you so angry that you overstressed your vocal chords and can't speak in your usual booming Future Ruler of the Earth voice? Or was it the Jar Jar Abrahms Star Wreck trailer?

  • Alexandre Martins
    Alexandre Martins 6 months ago +1

    Come on! They are just waiting for the TV series to finish. It's very obvious that HBO just doesn't want the books spoiling the end of the series.

    Really, I wasn't that happy with the whole Sansa being a moody bitch the whole time.

  • Alexandre Martins
    Alexandre Martins 6 months ago +1

    I still feel that Samsa, like many others, don't believe in the Army of the Dead stuff. I mean, she believes Jon, but it hasn't actually sunken in. She is pissed at Danerys because of political reasons and personal jealousy, they are all still squabbling over politics, and don't really realize the depth of the threat.
    Danerys is NOT a good queen. She is too childish and the lesson she seems to have learned is that one rules by force and fear. As the 3 heads of the dragon prophecy now went out the window, I think Jon will become king with no dragons and create what the Onion Knight said, the first decent rule in all the shitty history of the 7 Kingdoms.

    Remember when Tywin told Joffrey that "any man who must say that I am the King is no true king."??? Same goes for Dany. So sick of her "I am your queen", "bend the knee" B.S. Like a broken record....

    I think Dany is not a good character. She's egotistical and takes pleasure in killing. I think her feelings for Jon will go out the window once she finds out she'll be second to him, since he's the rightful heir.

    • K Stee
      K Stee 6 months ago +2

      I believe she is going to totally go "mad queen" when she finds out he's the true heir. People will turn on her because she is nuts. Varys and Tyrion saw it last season, Sam is seeing it now. Sansa had it right...he "bent the knee" because he is in love with her. They are all in love with her, but it's wearing off. She is going to lose support. side note: new drinking game- take a shot every time Dany says "bend the knee." Your liver will be dead by morning. seriously though, she needs new dialogue.

    I just assumed there was a deleted scene at the end of season 6 where The Citadel handed out seven league boots to everyone. Yeah, last season was unbelievably stupid at times and to be honest made me not look forward much to this season. I'm expecting more stupid shit this season, so far episode one wasn't too bad though.

      Commodore Stargazer they should reboot Space 1999 having picked over the series for everything that happened in earth system. Terrorists, politics, and the development of a space program.

    Doomcock has discovered he's a Targarian? OK, but how does he look in that slinky little outfit, and how does he deal with dragons who like to barbecue their enemies? Should I suggest tangy sauce? :D -- I haven't seen since about season 3, but my money's still on Tyrion, Bran, Danaerys, and Varys.

    So the whole thing beyond the wall was idiotic? Clearly, you've no idea exactly how fast ravens are. I did the research, it absolutely could have played out the way they showed it without needing to stretch the truth. In a couple of years we will have The Wheel of Time which is a hell of a lot better source material

    Something you have to say before any criticism of a female character, I love women Brianne is my favorite in the books. What I can't stand is now every woman in entertainment has to be all smug devoid of emotions and fucking unlikable. Jon kicks ass and still have a wide range of emotions but not the women. Hate this crap can't wait till Hollywood gets over this BS it honestly does women no favors. The Jon Aria greeting was just a bunch of shit!

  • Roj Blake
    Roj Blake 6 months ago

    It was a solid episode but hardly spectacular, more setting up the pieces. I'm also interested how loopy Robin Of The Vale (remember him ) is going to react when he finds out that the Stark sisters just murdered his favorite uncle Peter, especially considering that Bailish had just saved Sansa from the Bolton's.

    6:45 - @Nerdrotic, Gary to your point, GRRM seems to have enough time to crank out what is essentially supplemental material, yet cannot seem to "find the time" to finish the final two books? C'mon! It's been how many years since he wrote A Dance with Dragons? Almost a decade? I know he likes to take his time, but that's starting to feel like a lame excuse at this point. Especially since he's churned out supplemental and ancillary books during that time.
    I think the real reason he hasn't finished the books is he may have written himself into a corner. Perhaps he doesn't quite know how to bring the story "home" so to speak. That is to say, perhaps he simply is stumped. He has this MASSIVE narrative, with lots of carefully woven story threads, a fully-realized world, inhabited by a varied host of characters. But he may not quite know how to bring everything to a close. Or more to the point, bring the story to a close in a way that he finds "satisfying"?
    Then again, for all we know, he's finished the final books but refuses to release them until after his death or something? Who knows at this point, really, right?
    I get the sinking feeling we'll end up with a Robert Jordan, Wheel of Time situation with A Song of Ice and Fire...

    • GeoD
      GeoD 6 months ago

      @alexandrie kitty Thank you! I'll look up Sanderson's podcasts!
      Yeah, there's a TheXvidr I subscribed to that is a GM and a writer as well. RPGs can be a great "jumping off" point for the creative process to be sure!
      A lot of the underpinnings for my current story were taken from a campaign I ran for some friends of mine some years ago. But along the way, the story itself took shape, and I'm tweaking stuff so that it's got elements that will hopefully make for a world that's both "familiar" and "fresh"!
      All the best to you as well on all your endeavors!

    • alexandrie kitty
      alexandrie kitty 6 months ago +1

      GeoD I'm always happy to meet a fellow writer too.
      You know what, the best world building videos I've found were from people giving a guide for a D&D map. I think that's a great advantage for you, in the world building aspect.
      Sanderson has such great advice, and he seem nerdy/geeky/dorky but I still fangirl over him. XD
      And if you didn't know he has a podcast where he talks about writing.
      Good luck with all your writing projects!

    • GeoD
      GeoD 6 months ago

      @alexandrie kitty Sanderson is BRILLIANT! He's one of my favorite fantasy writers. Well, contemporary fantasy writers. Tolkien is always going to be my all-time favorite. But Sanderson's Laws of Magic are right up there with Asimov's Laws of Robotics in my opinion.
      I get the feeling ASOIAF will end up being a Robetrt Jordan/Wheel of Time situation.
      Good luck with your writing! Always a pleasure to meet fellow writers!
      And you're right, it's a matter of which technique works best for you. I like planning stuff out, and world-building. Heck I took a lot of time to delve into the mythic underpinnings and broad history of the world of my current project. But I am open to "discovering" the characters might make decisions during the "heat of the moment" that could end up requiring adjustments be made.
      I think that's partially due to my experience as a GM with tabletop RPGs. (Yeah, I'm kinda impossibly geeky/nerdy/dorky that way...)

    • alexandrie kitty
      alexandrie kitty 6 months ago +1

      GeoD Cool. And yeah, that makes sense. And great that you know that planning is what works for you.
      I used to be a planner, but gave discovery writing a chance and haven't went back - No, there's one project where it's more of a hybrid thing going on. A bit of a nightmare right now.... I can't plan more without knowing what's going on in the story, I can't write the story without having it planned out. XD
      Brandon Sanderson is a hybrid. He plots out the storyline/world but discovery writes the characters.
      Sorry, a bit all over the place with this reply.
      I haven't started ASOIAF yet because I like reading completed works. But even I can tell the show has been off without having the books to pick and choose scenes from. Maybe George RR Martin is not happy with the way the show has turned out and is waiting until it ends to release his next book. *shrug*

    • GeoD
      GeoD 6 months ago

      @alexandrie kitty I'm more of a planner/world-builder type. I prefer to have most of the broad strokes of the world clear in my head. Ideally, I prefer to have an outline for the story, and definitely need to know the main characters quite well so their choices feel more "organic" to me. (If that makes any sense?)
      But I see your point. I guess we'll see what happens. But I wonder if maybe he wants the show to end before he "finishes" the book series?
      Yes, there's a part of me that still secretly wishes he's actually finished the books but is "sitting" on them until the show is finished.
