That fight was everything I hoped it could be and more.

Their last two albums have been fantastic.  PJ isn't one of those bands that plays the same set every night during the tour, every set list is unique.  They play their 'hits' for the casual fans, stuff from their new albums, but also deep cuts from their catalog for the die hards, along with a few covers (last time I saw them we got Eruption-Aint Talking About Love and it was nuts).  Highly recommend seeing them live, none of the shows I've been to hasn't disappointed.

Tyrion Lannister is awesome. 

Cannot wait for the "trial by combat" and its aftermath to play out.  :)

Agreed.

Braavos looks great, loved that establishing shot.

Drogon is a beast, loved that scene with him coming out of the ravine.

Oberyn (they still haven't called him RV yet) continues to grow as a badass.  Takes balls to not stand up at the small council meeting when Tywin shows ups.  Compare that to Mace, who's basically Tywin's secretary. 

The Iron Islanders / Dreadfort scene was a bit weird, but I know why they did it - to set up the Kingsmoot and Euron / Victorian - with Theon "dead"

And this was the first episode in the entire series with no Stark appearing.

Also, no Kenny Baker in the photo.  But what is he going to do at a table read?

What are you talking about?  He's in the crate.

  I just don't recall Theon/Reek ever letting the real info about Bran and Rickon's true fate getting exposed to Ramsey Snow and thereby Roose Bolton.


Ramsey was there as previous Reek, so he knows the truth about Bran and Rickon.  I don't think he ever told Papa, though:

From ASOIAF wiki:

Quote
Ramsay is taken as a prisoner to Winterfell in the guise of Reek. After Theon Greyjoy captures Winterfell, Ramsay exchanges a vow of service to Theon for his release.[8] He quickly becomes one of Theon's more trusted attendants, assisting Theon in his hunt to bring the escaped Bran and Rickon Stark back to Winterfell. He orchestrates Theon's cover-up of the Stark boys' escape by killing two peasant boys of an age with the Starks, and then flaying the corpses to avoid recognition. Theon presents their flayed corpses as the Starks, then has their heads mounted on spikes over the castle walls. With the approval of Theon, Ramsay kills Gelmarr, Aggar and Gynir, ironborn who knew the truth about the bodies. Theon uses the Winterfell kennelmaster Farlen as a scapegoat and has him executed for the murders. Theon contemplates killing Reek too, but thinks better of it, fearing the servant had written and hidden an account of the truth.

Loved last night's episode.  As a book reader (but not a book purist.  Those guys are ********), I loved being surprised for once.  And since Bran has only like 2.5 chapters left from where we are to where he ends up in ADWD as a tree, I'm ok with them slowing things down and having them show me more.

I had the biggest **** eating grin when that was all going down (I knew what was coming) and was trying to hide it from my wife.  She was more shocked by Joffrey's death (she expected him to die at some point, just not at the wedding and like that) than the Red Wedding.

Loved the way they did the dwarfs, slightly different from the books, but effective.

I'm thinking about the next 'holy ****' moment non-readers will flip out on.  There's certainly a few more coming this season.


-Cersei and Jaime ******* over Joffery's rotting corpse
-Battle at the Wall and Stannis' arrival
-Red Viper vs the Mountain
-Tyrion killing Shae and then Tywin
-Lady Stoneheart

Yeah Scott, me too.  Total geek weekend started with GIJoeCommunity last night and ends with Cap tomorrow and GoT Sunday.  Throw in the emotional ring ceremony for the Sox this afternoon and it'll be a good four days.

Loved it.  I want figures of Wingman, Tight Ship, Buzzkill, Fourth Wall, Three Kids and the rest.

And I'm not 100% certain, but I think they used the original voice actors for Duke and Flint.

#4 - In the last episode with Carol and Tyrese, the girls see a stack of smoke followed by a swarm of freshly cooked zombies.  Any thoughts on where they came from? 

The hillbilly palace Daryl and Beth burned after they hugged their feelings out.

Shouldn't be too hard to tell which figure is which being that there's lots of unique parts - pie & hair for Krusty, bat for Nelson, sax for Lisa, Marge's hair, etc.  Milhouse and Ralph will probably be a bitch considering they both have short legs and the tile with the only difference their heads.

And a dollar bump to $3.99 each.

I was thinking about getting the house, but I'll probably just stick to the minifigures.  Would like to see another wave, some classic characters still left - Moe, Barney, Sideshow Bob, Otto, Ms. Crabapple, Principal Skinner, Supernintendo Chalmers, Comic Book Guy, Smithers, etc.  Christ, you can probably do two more waves of minifigs and still have plenty of characters left to pick from.

1st trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy.

Love it.  The general public might not know who the **** these a-holes are, but hopefully with future trailers and a big marketing push (likely centered around Rocket and Groot), it'll do decent business.  Definitely has a Star Wars feel.

And the lead singer of Mouserat is perfectly cast.

Can someone explain why the younger girl's shoe was at the scene of the walker attack when Daryl got there, but she was still wearing them as they walked down the train tracks?

Inconsistent writing.
