Winter is Coming in April

Post by moksha » Sun Mar 03, 2019 7:42 pm

No, this is not a weather report... it is my wanting to start a thread about the final season of The Game of Thrones.

Are any of you fans of the show?

I used to pirate the show back in the days of low speed internet. It would take FOREVER to load. And then what if it froze on one of the naked boobies scenes?! :shock: I couldn't get my then-TBMish hubby to watch it with me in the beginning because it was too vulgar.

Thank you HBO-Go! We cant wait for the final season!

GoT fan here...

My TBM DW finally watched all of the available seasons recently when she found out it was available on VidAngel. We had to subscribe to HBO through Amazon video and also get a VidAngel subscription. Then we could watch it on our AppleTV and Roku. But she had the filtering turned up so much that I feel it ruined the show. I had to explain to her what happened after some of the big episodes. She wasn't sure who was dead and who was alive.

I am looking forward to the final season...

I've never seen Game of Thrones. I tried to read the first book years ago, and couldn't get past the first hundred pages.

Now Wheel of Time? That's a series I'd root for.

I pirated the last season of Battlestar Galactica, and ended up with a Trojan.

The virus or the prophylatic?

I imagine a great number of the remaining characters will be dead by the final episode. Hope Jon or Daenerys will be sitting on the Iron Throne rather than the Night King (he would probably refuse to issue any apologies for his army of the dead by claiming infallibility).

Seems to me that Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones are the two best television series ever and that is even with strong competition from The Stand and Roots.

Watching season 7 again to get ready for the new season. Man there's some nice T and A in that series! First season was like Game of Porn. But I digress, that's not the only reason DW and enjoyed it. She likes the women that kick ass and I just think it's great entertainment.

Ans still no Winds of Winter. He'll never finish that damn book.

I watched the 1st season, but just could not get into it. I got bored will all the political manipulation and posturing. DW is a big fan. She loved it. I picked it up again in Season 6, so I have a basic idea what is going on. Even though I had to as DW for a lot of info on the filler, I found season 7 enjoyable enough. I'll watch season 8 when it comes out. DW defiantly will.

I found S1 particularly slow - in fact I stopped watching because it was so hard to get into. I did eventually push through though, and by early S2 I was quite hooked. S1 seemed to be all foundation building, which though necessary doesn't propel the story forward so much. I've rewatched parts of S1 though, and see now how things that seemed insignificant at the time were actually quite important.

So excited.

MIL is TBM, but can be a bit naughty.

Discussing GoT nudity and sex with me, and DW

MIL: It's all tastefully done

RJ: No it's not

MIL: It's just in the background

RJ: Not it's not

Mil: Silence

RJ: (laughing at naughtiness of MIL)
At the halfway home. I'm a full-grown man. But I'm not afraid to cry.
