Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A Game of Thrones (HBO)

I think it's interesting because it's at the heart of some of the most ancient conflicts in Westeros.  The Children of the Forest created the White Walkers to fight the incursion of the First Men.  From there it seems that the White Walkers became a threat to everyone:  the First Men, the Children of the Forest, and whoever else got in their way.

I'm also shocked by the origins of the a White Walkers.

I don't know if their origin will matter later but I thought this was kind of dumb.  I really don't care for origin stories that don't add anything to the story line, and this seemed a little nonsensical.  Sure its kind of neat to know, but who cares if the Children of the Forest created them, if they were created by a red priestess, or if they've just always been.  In my opinion it really doesn't matter and adds more connections to an already complicated story line.

We don't need a backstory on where the dragon eggs came from, why there are white walkers, why Jamie and Cersei are in to each other, how the Knight's Watch built such an impossibly high wall, etc.  Just tell me a story and I'll accept some facts without knowing the reasons.

Yeah, so far I'm liking what they're doing with Preacher.  Tulip is a bit more energetic than I remember.  But that's probably an improvement.

Broke my heart catching up with this tonight.   :'(

I see SDCC Exclusive and I automatically think HTS, so my initial thought was - kind of lack-luster for Hasbro this year. Glad I have you guys to point out that it's most likely the EE exclusive.

Pete's an outstanding guy! Thanks for helping me and everyone else out. It's a huge effort that should never go unappreciated.

Hodor?  And Summer?  Along with the Children of the forest?   This is getting bleak. 

I'm also shocked by the origins of the a White Walkers.

I watched the pilot and it's interesting.  I've never read Preacher, but I've read Crossed and The Boys, so I'm a fan of Garth Ennis' work.

If anyone missed the pilot, they are going to re-air it this Sunday at 9 pm EDT.

I'm still in.  Although it is not priority watching.  I watched "almost live" last night simply because there wasn't anything else to watch.

Last night had potential, and then it went to crap...kind of like a bunch of episodes.  The entire thing with the barber talking to ghosts was stupid.  (You can tell how awesome it is when I don't know his name).

I have said it before, this show does have potential to be good.  But it is so ADHD and won't focus on anything in particular except the craziness of a couple of people.  It's a lot like Season 2 of TWD in that there is so much standing around, talking, and then something gets going, only to be picked up again the next week....and then to be let down because nothing really happened.

I guess I'll keep doing what I'm doing.  I'll watch when there is time and when there is nothing else to watch.

FWIW, I DVRd "Colony" from USA and have enjoyed it after two episodes.  I know that is not remotely related to the subject at hand, but it jumped into my head.

I'm 7 for 7, so I am likely for this one.  Who else is going?

I haven't been there since #3, so might be time to get to another.  I need to start working on my sales pitch to the wife...
