Why the **** are you trying to make something out of this?!?!?

For some reason it was really just troubling to watch someone choke to death.  I had no qualms about the scene at the end of last week's season premiere.  The Hound taking on 5 guys in the Inn was an amazing scene.  And I actually thought that when Arya had her revenge on Polliver, who had killed her friend in season 2, that was a moment of justice. 

My *momentary* pang of sympathy was about anybody choking.

Whoa there.  Was I 'making something' of it?  I thought it was a reasonable discussion of the sympathy or lack thereof that one might feel for one of the most loathed characters of all time.

Don't get me wrong:  Joffrey has done the most hateful things imaginable during the course of the series.  At some point it may come to light that he was responsible for something VERY big, but I don't know when or how that might get revealed.  Karma is a bitch, and the horrific nature of his death was well deserved.  He's been a sadistic little bastard ever since we saw the incident at the Inn at the Crossroads where Arya threw his sword into the river.  And his tormenting of Tyrion during this episode alone was unforgiveable.  But for me, it's tough to watch ANYONE choke and die like that, even if it is a television show.

This show must be very difficult for you to watch then, seeing someone getting their head cut off or worse every 5 minutes for 4 seasons now...

ZOMG! Just saw "The Purple Wedding". And true to form Joffrey was an utter monster. But I couldn't believe that as he was choking that I actually felt a pang of sympathy for him. Especially after how he had so publically shamed Tyrion.


I'm hardly the vengeful type, but watching the life go out of that little ******'s eyes was one of the most satisfying things I've ever seen in TV or film.

Same here... $46 on Amazon and about the same price on eBay... definitely not paying that.

If anyone is looking for Leia or Greedo, the stores around me have a combined 12,000 available.

Mickey Rooney and John Pinette.

Need to catch Scott now...  :-*

I only managed to find 3 of those the first go around... I feel like it's one of the best figures Hasbro's ever made, and I'd love to see him re-released.

I'm just happy that the giveaway isn't a OT item. 

Amazingly, I wandered into a TJ Maxx today and stumbled across a lone MTT.  Looked like it had been wrapped as a birthday gift and returned later (had a piece of tape with some paper on it).  It was open, but seemed complete.  I got it home and everything was in good order but there were no stickers, which isn't a big deal since I don't typically put those on anyway.  I'm going to email Hasbro to see if they maybe can send a sheet, but whatever.

Can't beat it for $39.

I saw the Obi-Wan at a TRU last night... missed the Stormtrooper though.

Is the Obi-Wan Starfighter the same as the previous releases or is it a scaled down version of the originals?  I've decided to go back and get some ships that I skipped, and I was about to buy this one off of the HTS sale... but I don't want it if it's not basically the same as it's always been.


Yeah... sucks.

To me Gwar is the second greatest thing to come out of Richmond - after Avail.

Greg helped me out with a Legends Fett that I couldn't find any trace of.  Thanks!

So.  Many.   Words.
