I don't remember the High Sparrow... Is that a character from Dances with Dragons? I haven't finished that one yet.

Doesn't seem like a chain would be that expensive.

I missed not seeing that part. Part of Tyrion's finest moments.

I was surprised to see the entire episode focused entirely on just the one locale.  Did the showrunners handle the Battle of the Blackwater the same way?  I can't seem to recall that.

I thought the fight scenes were well done - I thought this was handled better than the previous examples of "large scale" battles.  The giant archer was my favorite part.

I was surprised where the episode left off, without getting to spoilerish.  I'm looking forward to seeing the wrap up of this season and then the long wait begins again...

I still like this one...

If you want further proof of just how stupid this movie is, enjoy:

First time I've seen this. The funniest thing I've read in a while.

Strange eBay issue for me today. I sold some stuff last week and shipped it all out using the paypal linked eBay shipping option. Usually works great and does all the tracking communication for me. The strange part, this package was clearly intended to ship to Arizona. It's spent the last 24 hours rolling through Boston and New Hamphsire (note, I shipped from Illinios). Why is this package in the North East???  All the rest of my packages (including another one to Arizona) arrived today.  Strange. Sure hope it arrives.

I finally finished Feast of Crows this week.  I'm going to download Dance with Dragons on my iPad next.  Looking forward to getting the other characters POVs.  I thought the note at the end of FoC was funny that next book was coming soon (dated 2005).

Well, glad to know I'm not crazy and I'm in good company of the confused.  I've been trying to stay a step of ahead of the TV show by reading the books but the back and forth jumping between the books and TV show has started to confuse me.    :)

I enjoyed last nights episode but I'm starting to scratch my head a bit. I don't recall some of these story lines in the books. Without getting too spoilery, specifically I'm confused about Theon, Bran, and Jon Snow's recent arcs. I'm almost finished with reading Feast for Crows, Does some of this happen in Dances with Dragons or are they diverging off the path? Or have I just completely forgotten part of Storm of Swords?

Thanks Guys.  I probably need to go back and review the books a bit more, especially in regards to Dany's plot line.  I just don't seem to recall what happens after Yunkai!  Or maybe I should just sit back and watch  ;D

I also really liked Oberyon's appearance and I really liked how uncomfortable Tyrion really was.

I finally got a chance to watch the premiere last night.  So great to have GoT back on the air!  My those dragons have grown up.

I really liked the opening sequence with the crafting of the new swords.

I hardly recognized Ser Jaime without his beard! 

Did the actor for Dario (or however you spell his name)?  He looked different but I haven't gone into IMBD to check this out.  I liked last years version better.

I've only read up to Storm of Swords (I think that's the title of book 3) so I'm trying to remember what's happened and I know they may be starting to merge different ideas from the books as they weave in and out.  So a few questions which for people that have read further ahead (or just have a better memory than me!)

Are the events of Dany's current storyline covered elsewhere?  I don't recall much more from her storyline other than the conquering of the current city (which happened last season)

Did Arya get Needle back in the books?  I honestly don't remember this.

Yep, in retrospect I wish I would have delayed AoS until after Cap2.

Who is still with Agents of Shield?  I feel like the show has really picked up in the last few weeks.  Haven't seen Captain America yet so I'm not sure how much cross-over there is but I can guess at a few things.

I hope Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are the first to get eaten in Terminus because they are all horribly ridiculous characters.

People who have read the comics seem to love those three characters.  I started reading them and stopped just when they were introduced.  I guess I want to try and stay spoiler free even though I know that books and show take drastic differences in characters and stories.
