HBO was willing to pony up all the money the show needed to made right. The network wanted to finance full length seasons. It was Weiss and Benioff who’d come down with a massive case of senioritis and decided to phone it in so that they could move on to other projects like Confederacy and Star Wars. I thought this…
Cersei has been off the deep end with no possibility of return since Tommen took his jump.
Varys doesn’t realize he suffers from the same delusions and is playing the same Game of Thrones as all the other would-be kings. He just believes in wielding true power from the shadows behind figureheads. He thinks he knows his own flaws and has subsumed them beneath his greater purpose of “serving the realm” but he…
Tyrion does seem to be getting set up as the one who betrays Dany for love. Between this conversation with Sansa, his creepy stares when she slept with Jon and their recent disagreements that alliance is looking shaky.
I think it was less romantic than it was a, "thanks for being here, and not being horrible." I don't doubt there's some affection, but I think romance might be a bit far-fetched.
Can you imagine doing 55 grueling night shoots only to find out that no one can see the damn thing when it airs?
Still curious, I cranked up the lights in the room and watched a few dark scenes. Immediately everything grew too dark again. My TV was practically a panel of black with only the rare flame livening things up.
I could see them being the more healthy version of Cersei and Robert, where they like and respect each other but don’t get resentful of them both fucking other people.
It made sense to me, her saying he was the best of them. For someone who was brutalized the way she was, trust would be of paramount importance, and Tyrion never hurt her. I don’t have a preference of if they end up together, but it was a nice moment, and I liked that they took the time to give us that.
TV and movies often forget the normal reaction to major story events by known and unknown characters can have great weight when given proper time to breath as was done here. Instead they move into “we need drama! Earn your emmy nom right here!” right away, often robbing the moment of its feels. Here those feels were…
“Was I truly a hero or did I just finally find a way to kill myself.” - the wake hit hard, but that hit harder. That they even thought to have the character worry and ask that.
I wouldn’t say it’s outright mocking them, more like poking fun. Talladega Nights is only ever cruel to Ricky Bobby.
The scene where they say grace is insanely funny.
They can’t say “we’ll always be friends.” What if they get dragged into a last-survivor-gets-it-all tontine? No friendship can survive that.
I wonder if it has more to do with some of those recent movies being big flops than with McKay’s more serious career.
probably because it happens so infrequently.
“Everyone who survived childhood measles lived to adulthood, so measles aren’t that bad” is a survivorship fallacy. Measles outbreaks are absolutely a public health emergency, because measles do kill some children. A flu outbreak is a public health emergency because the flu kills some people.
I’m in my 50's. My own cousin has been completely deaf his entire life because he had measles as a baby. I know people my age who are sterile because of having had measles.
Coming at your shit take bro!
Christ, if we ever needed Willy Wonka style justice for shit, it would be now.
Hell, why stop there. Do the Trumps, Pete Goodell, Every one of Trumps picks...ah hell throw in the Senate and House.
This will probably kill the Oompa Loompas trying to find a rhyme to “McConnell” but I am willing to sacrifice a few.
