Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A Game of Thrones (HBO)
« on: April 11, 2014, 10:12 AM »
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.

One guy saw Rick under the bed before passing out

I thought that guy was killed? Need to go back and re-watch that now...

I thought he was just knocked unconscious in a classic "sleeper hold".

I was curious to go back and listen to the argument they had over the bed.  With Joe's rules of "claiming" a possession, I'm not sure how the fight over who got to lie down in that bed would have come about.

I'm wondering now if any of the people from Daryl's new group were in the house with Rick a few episodes back??

I just assumed it was those same guys, but now that you mention it they could be a totally different group. 

According to IMDB the actors for that group are the same for those two episodes "Claimed" and "Alone".  Characters names are "Joe" and "Tony" and possibly "Len" and "Harley".

I don't recall seeing the guy who had been killed by Rick with the "marauder" group when they found Daryl, but I'm not 100% sure. The only two guys I recognized for sure were the older leader and bandana guy. I'm hoping they don't jumble up the timeline by having Daryl meeting the "marauders" before Rick's stay in that house. The show is already hard enough to keep track of with the main cast split into small groups.

I've been thinking about this and I'm not sure what the timeline jumbling would do at this point for the season.  It would have been a "oh crap" moment if at the end of Rick's episode that the whole Maurader gang was revealed and Darryl was with them.  However, at this point, I don't think it serves any benefit/shock value.

I was reading on another site that the fat guy that Rick killed in the bathroom was in the group that found Darryl. I would have to go back and confirm this, because if so there is a severe timeline difference and Darryl would have been at the house that Rick escaped from.

Interesting... obviously, we all sort of assume the timelines are in the same general flow; however, given that Rick was down and out for a few days it could be conceivable that the Darryl/Beth timeline could sync up.   We've only seen four nights with Darryl and Beth if I recall correctly.

The leader of the group was the same guy that came out on the porch. Or at least I assumed it was.

I have no concept of who these Guardians of the Galaxy are... I'll certainly go see it as I really like all the Marvel movies.  The trailer certainly made this a bit "campier" than even some of the current Marvel movies.  Hopefully it all comes together and works.  Not sure about a gun toting racoon,  ::)

I've started reading them... I'm about 85% finished with the first compendium. I have to say I enjoy the TV show a lot more. The pacing of the comics is much different.  Still it's nice to see a sort of blizzaro TWD universe and stories though.

Fantastic episode tonight. One of my favorite. I was on the edge of the couch the whole time.

How many are still sticking with Agents of Shield? I'm still watching it and I enjoy it. I'm not a huge marvel fanboy but it seems like they are trying to start to introduce more Marvel characters (Deathlok?).  I hope it keeps up as it seems like it could be a good vehicle to keep the marvel machine rolling.

I was curious about that too, and had to look it up.  His hands/claws are apparently chopped off in 2013's "The Wolverine."  The healing factor causes the claws to regrow, but just as bone instead of the admantium coated originals.

I just went to Google too to try and look this up.  I sort of remember that now in the Wolverine Movie... I didn't love that particular incarnation of the franchise so I must have just erased it from my memory :)
