I dunno, I got 2 or 3 episodes in, and I got the sense that the series wasn't actually  goinganywhere. I hate shows that feel the need to circle around building characters at the expense of plot. That's not to say you can develop plot at the expense of characters, but if you're going to make a mistake, make the mistake of  plot.

mcmnky: even if you didn't expect the red wedding, I don't understand how anyone could be surprised or devastated.


I don't even watch the show (or read the books), but I could have predicted the "Red Wedding". Here's the thing- while it claims to be a "character driven" show, none of the characters farking matter. Since there isn't really any meaningful  plot to the whole thing, you can have wholesale slaughters and none of it matters.

I watched 15 minutes of the first episode, and the only thing surprising about the "Red Wedding" was that it took them this long to get to killing off a bunch of characters like that.

Headline is about a dumb swords and tits soap opera that is the flavor of the moment escapism that people online can't shut up about. Really, why read the article so we can whine about how the Red Wedding was/wasn't like it was in the book and how if only Don Draper somehow could be sucked through a space wormhole, in a script written by Joss Whedon, could it possibly be better.

2013-06-10 09:09:49 PM
Fairly good list.  So glad they covered "Southland" - what a terrific show that doesn't get enough love.  Probably the best cop show I've ever seen since "The Wire," with a possible exception for "Luther", but that's a British import.

And Varro ("Spartacus") died in 2010, right?  Lots of painful deaths from that show, almost on par with "Game of Thrones."  Hope you don't get banned for that screen cap though, overfienduglar.

I'm not convinced Walt can't survive the show. It's also possible that he 'wins' and become the big boss of meth in the region, but loses everything in the process, including Skylar and his kids.

I'd really like it if they just killed everyone on that show, except maybe Hank.  I seriously can't stand any of them anymore.  Walt has been completely detestable for a couple seasons now.  Skylar, Marie, and Jesse were always annoying.  Hell even Walt Jr. is annoying.  Gus and Mike were the only "likable" characters for me.

If so, I want him to tell me what happens in book 7.  I mean, it MUST be obvious to him, since he predicted the EXACT deaths of Robb, his wife and her unborn baby (which WASN'T in the books), mother and all of his army...but that his uncle survives.  That's why people haven't said a word about it at all, since it was so predictable and mundane.
