But, then I suppose this whole political debate belongs elsewhere.

Ha, yeah, I despise Obama as much as anybody, and I thought it was funny.

One can say good fun humor or one can say it is an outright lie, that if spread during an election year, may influence someone to vote for arguably the worst President ever. That's how subtle insinuations start and before you know it someone's trying to re-write history that he was the most accomodating since Washington.

Or, put another way, good fun humor usually some some basis in fact. Just like your Stark/Gore comparison.

Totally agree. Joffrey isn't even married! Even the Westerosi side is completely biased due to the reporting of liberal HBO.

Dude, you just spread the "subtle insinuation" that it's an outright lie and that Obama is the "worst President ever." Please go to Politics.

Good news, you don't have to vote for PBO because that's Robb not Jon...

Re: Game of Thrones -- "Garden of Bones" -- 4/22/12

The one issue I have with posting in here is sometimes I can't remember if I know something because it was in the book...or a throwaway line on the show or addressed in Season 1 (which I haven't rewatched yet). So questions get asked that I know the answer to, but I don't know how to respond.

And most of my reaction to the show is how much I'm enjoying seeing the book come to life. But they are definitely futzing with the timeline, so sometimes I'm not even sure I can react to something because I don't know if it will be explained further, etc.

Anyway, that's why I stay out of these for the most part.

I finally hit upon why Carice van Houten's Melisandre seemed so familiar -- she played a very similar role in the somewhat forgettable Sean Bean movie "Black Death." Same mannerisms and such just a different hair color.

Whoa...

Spoiler:
Though I imagine it'll be very early in the episode, possibly the first scene since they've done a good job of picking up right where they left off last episode.

That sounds familiar. Was that the one where knights went out in search of witches and ended up in a village in the middle of nowhere that wasn't as it seemed.. and that must have been one of Sean Bean's many film deaths lol...

I rather liked that movie... It wasn't a blockbuster or anything, but it was worth watching.

Well,

Technically being pulled apart by horses isn't the same as being drawn and quartered but, yeah, he met yet another rough end. He sure does die good on film.

Not sure if this should actually be spoilered.

Why didn't Blondie want to show off the dragons? That was a nice speech though about what would happen once they're full grown.

What is the name of Tyrion's chief of the guards? They make a good duo.
"Bron, if Ser Meryn speaks again, kill him."

Awesome line and I think it was also in the book.

I'm catching up on this show right now, and while I didn't have much to say about the first 3 episodes, this one had me burst out something:

Holy shit, the smoke monster from Lost came from that redhead's vagina!
