Yeah, I mean, that happens entirely off-stage in the book; you just hear later that Cersei had that done. I was surprised as hell that we actually got it. So awesome.

I really like the way that was staged, actually, with the first watchman hesitating and then the camera following from behind the watchman who stepped up--it was totally the kind of moment that you expect something or someone to intervene at the last moment, kill the bad guys, save the child. Nope. Baby stabbin'. I hope we get more stuff like that that plays with and then defies our expectations for this kind of genre fiction; it's not just that the violence is titillating, it's that it demonstrates how being titillated by it presupposes a moral framework that for the most part doesn't operate in this universe.

ok yep I missed a few minutes of bastard-murderin'. Probably from when the video was converted to work on my phone--the source file was fine.

Dedicated Game of Thrones TV thread? Then spoiler out only what noobs like me who haven't read the books wouldn't know. Would that make sense?

Make it so!

Oh, I imagine you are going to enjoy this season.  That's basically the entire point of the books.

FYI, they made episode 2 available early on HBO Go, so it's up on the torrents sites and whatnot. Balon is so awesome.

D said "Aren't you setting yourself up for long waits later?" and I reminded her that we finished the Wire se. 5 like a month before the last episode aired. O what an age, what wonderful times

Yeah, dawg, I thought it was maybe their strongest episode so far. They're much more confident re: making changes to the source material, and they're really knocking it out of the park. There were several times where they changed something or compressed something, and I was like, "FUCK, that makes MUCH more sense the show's way." (ie, the whole Cressen thing, what they're doing with Gendry). I don't think that ever happened in S1.

Well, I'd imagine that's coming. Maybe as early as ep4.

I don't pay for any level of television. Nor have I watched any non-downloaded/DVD television in, I don't know, what year is this? Do they even broadcast television any more?

TV-Torrents nuked the ep for being a web rip, and then i sort of realized i'd rather wait to watch it anyway

Yeah, I just got it from Pirate's Bay.

I pay for Netflix and Hulu. If there were a way to get HBO Go legally without paying for a whole giant cable package, I totally would.

Granted, I watched the former about 5 years ago or more and am watching the latter now, but I'm pretty confident that The West Wing is ten times better.

It's weird. I loved it when I first watched it. It was one of my first experiences of going through and watching an entire series from start to finish with someone (in this case, my friend Scott). We watched through it pretty quickly, and though I found certain characters and plots annoying, on the whole, I was quite fond of the show.

And then I tried re-watching it. And I couldn't. Fucking. Stand it.
