Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Costco Appreciation Thread!
« on: June 6, 2013, 11:19 AM »
Last time I went to Costco, it was an impulse buy of cheap 5-pack of socks for $6.  Time before that it was a 2.5lb bag of M&Ms.   ::)

As long as you avoide the impulse buy of a 70" LED TV you should be fine.

Also it's TOTALLY WORTH reading all the books even if you've seen parts of the first 3 on TV.  They're awesome.

I agree and with a year of time between now and the start of Season 4, there's plenty of time to go back and relive the entire saga. 

I've been inspired to jump back into Book 4 (started it again last night) and hope to get through 4 and 5 before next season...  Not sure when Book 6 may actually get published.

63
  Maybe I should film it..

Yes.

I was thinking this morning, that I really should convince my wife to watch the series.  I'd just watch her reaction to Eddard and the Red Wedding.  Its just not the same effect since I'm the only one at home that watches it (and I've read the books).

I do remember being visibly upset when I read that chapter of the book... I kept coming to the same thoughts "why do bad things keep happening to good people".

Sorry, but this twitter feed has me laughing out loud.  It is a collection of fan twitter reactions to the Red Wedding.

And now you know why book readers have been waiting for this episode all season - the on screen adaptation of one of the most shocking scenes in the books and the reactions of non-book readers.  I got goosebumps when Rains of Castemere started playing, knowing full well what was coming.

Amen... I thought for sure that would be the season finale.

I think I like this idea...

67
I've only read through Book 3. I'm trying to stay one book ahead of the series.

Damn you GOT - I actually find myself starting to care about what happens to Jamie Lannister!  The thing that really stood out to me in the scene where Dany was dealing with the slave trader was how much she had taken on the mannerisms and tone if Viserys - it was almost uncanny.

Jaime Lannister may be one of the most dynamicly developed characters I've ever come across in any literature.

I agree... His character's stories are very compelling.

I thought it was a really phenomenal episode.  I'm surprised how much I enjoyed it given the absence of Daenerys.

Me too!  Danny's storyline in this book is one of my favorites.  But there was enough setting up the rest of the season and beyond.

Where is this half season going to end?  The Red Wedding?  The Royal Wedding? Both?  It seems like if they are stretching out this book across two seasons, it will be hard to have both weddings or am I mis-remembering the last half of the book?

Mine looks like that too.  No complaints from me for my first Jumbo figure. I wasn't prepared for how big the cards were  ;D

Caught up on the last two episodes. I was really looking forward to Danny's taking of Astapor (sp?). My favorite part of this season so far.

Walking Dead alum joins Guardians of the Galaxy

You know - I never put 2 and 2 together that he was in JFK.

And Days of Thunder!!  One of my cult classic favorites!

Sorry for the unintended spoiler.   ;)


I'll just try to forget :)  realistically at this pace, I'm years from finishing book 4 and 5 and I'll probably forget in reality  ;D
