Winter is coming ... and probably so are spoilers (which is why we use the spoiler tags like this one):

Funniest recap I read. Read through to the comments where there's a string of Trump-esque campaign attacks.

"Dying Jon! He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was killed. I like people that weren’t killed."

Then further down for the Deep Thoughts.

Funny, a sport site doing narrative TV reviews (and remember that Nate Silver began as a baseball stats nerd).

It's all the range in media to mix pop culture and sports culture. Deadspin, Grantland (RIP) and The Ringer (which actually produces the HBO aftershow). It's all for/by obsessives and I love it. You can blame Bill Simmons.

These are nearly as good as the Rick Grimes Dad jokes...

Q: Why can't Donald Trump be a Lannister?

A: Because he never pays his debts.

What a journey.
as an aside, I find Lena Headly to be less than the sum of her parts.
On the surface, she is well put together.
And I find her absolutely Unattractive.

Are you channeling Jerome Flynn?

Lena Headey seems very down to earth based on her social media and other off screen antics but ymmv...

no clue as to whom he is.... googling... ok...actor
I'm just saying that the checklist of parts seems acceptable. But the overall package does not.
Which is fine. No one cares if I find her attractive, I'm sure. Down to Earth does not come into consideration at a purely physical attraction such as I was intending to relate.
I know nothing about her, except she has a British accent/dialect. ;)

I also think she reminds me of Lara Flynn Boyle. https://goo.gl/O8pQvf
I've stated before, I worked with Lara's aunt who by the way has a last name I found interesting or unfortunate, Negro. And she looked like an older, blonde version of Lara/Lena, herself.

Now, this gameofthrones face REALLY does not float my boat.

Have you seen his Vodka ad?

PS Jerome Flynn (Bronn) and Lena Headey (Cersei) are apparently exes and do NOT get on (my god, I'm channelling TMZ)

Dunno, it's kind of awesome, that woman's expression of "I'm trying to hold back giggles while going for a kiss".

Iceland Air / WOW ? I listen to Frommer's weekly radio/podcast and they often cite the lowest prices are on Iceland carriers.


So, ddt does not normally read comments? How does one begin to read comments when they don't, yet still claim they never do? :)

Saw the smashing alarm clock coming a mile away.
He reminds me a lot of my nephew, who's a body builder. I even called him the mountain few weeks back. But he said "Yeah, not so much the way he looks NOW, though"...
I've never heard him speak/english at least.

Where does the "W" come for pronouncing VOTKA!????? YT "Star trek Checkov saying vodka!!!" https://youtu.be/XqKn5HXxeLA?t=1m22s Guy even says "It's not a W..."

So, do any of you listen to the GoTs podcasts?

I like the one with Vanity Fair Joanna Robinson. A Cast of Kings https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cast-kings-game-thrones-podcast/id515836681?mt=2

After buzz is not bad. They have a lot of energy and puns/callback jokes https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/game-thrones-afterbuzz-tv/id434204845?mt=2

Rotten Tomatoes covers it, but is also general movie talk https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/rottentomatoes/id860808237?mt=2

Two episodes in and no comments?

That battle was so annoyingly nonsensical. It should not have been a surprise— This piece covers it better than I could.

Anyway, the fact that seems to indicate that he's got a real part to play.

ARL (Moderator) – July 25, 2017 08:35PM Reply Quote
The only good thing about the battle was that

In fact I think there will be a lot of secondary character culling this season.

What ARL said. Not much time for culling. Only five more episodes this season!!!

I stumbled upon a quote in socialmeejaland that I thought was pithy:

I'm not sure how they are arranging their feeds this year, but they seem less clear. Regardless, I like the discussion.
