Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Stranger Things - Netflix
« on: August 17, 2016, 08:23 AM »
I wouldn't call it the best TV show ever, but it was very good, bordering on excellent.  A few things bugged me.  The bully was too over-the-top.  The older sister Nancy - she over-acted in a lot of tense situations which pulled me out of the scenes.  But those are nitpicks.

I agree.  I watched it over the weekend.  Totally engrossing.  I just wish it were longer - those 8 episodes flew by too fast.

The reviews seem consistent in declaring the plot and script are garbage.  So that's evidence enough that I'll hate it.  No number of funny one-liners or glorious visuals can make me enjoy a film that fails at storytelling.

That petition is freakin' hilarious.

I think I'm the only one who wasn't bothered by Varys' quick trip.

No - but it's been explained:

Jon wouldn't be a legitimate, true-born Targaryen heir.  Bran is the legitimate heir to Winterfell.

If Rhaegar and Lyanna got married prior to his birth he would be.  There's precedent for Targaryens taking multiple wives, so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Wouldn't that wedding have to have been public for it to count?

Here's an explanation on why the timelines don't seem to make sense:

It's not intended to match up real time because doing so would hurt the narrative.

I can't see how Cersi's position could be any weaker.  The North is united behind Jon Snow.  Houses Martell and Tyrell have joined the Dothraki backing Daenerys.  What allies do the Lannisters have left?  The Freys, who just lost their lord and top heirs?  Cersi basically stands alone.  It'll be a short reign.

How the **** did Varys get from Dorne to the middle of the ocean on a ship so quickly?  You'd think he would just wait until Dany came ashore to meet up with her.

What I hear is that shot was when the fleet was setting sail after congregating in Dorne and picking up the Martell fleet.

SPOILERS!



Damn... Cersi is SAVAGE.  Holy epic victory.  I think I respect her now.

It's almost a shame Tommen had to be a wuss and ruin it for her.

Great episode, but unnecessarily costly to the Stark army.  Sansa said "we could wait until we have a larger army" when she should have appended "because Littlefinger is marching here with all the soldiers of the Eyrie."  She had to know they were coming in response to her raven.  Hell, she knew where to meet with them.  Did she let all of Jon's Wildlings get slaughtered out of spite because she wasn't included in the war council?

I understand the writers were going for the drama of the Eyrie horses swooping in and saving everyone, but I wish it could have been a bit more logical.  Just having Sansa not riding in with Littlefinger, having her not know whether he'd respond to her pleas, would have been better.

But that's a bit of a nitpick.  Overall, it was awesome.  Really amazing, brutal battle.  Those piles of bodies were unreal.

I'd also like for it to be explained how Daenerys figured out how to control her dragons.

I was expecting a lot more from an Ian McShane GoT cameo, but I guess we will take what we can get. I assume they were still hanging out around the Vale? Were the guys that slaughtered them Dondarrion's (sic) men or just some other band of Brothers? 

It was indeed the Brotherhood Without Banners (according the the wiki).  Kind of a dick move slaughtering a group of innocent people...

Bear Island looked pretty cool, but geez...62 men? The army building is not going so well. Maybe a quick raven to Littlefinger will help?

I'm 100% certain that's the letter Sansa was writing.
