the acting isn't half as good as people pretend

there is so many plot themes that you can't cover it in one episode. you get snippets of a little bit. they might return to a plot line for like 2-3 episodes

the show is definitely not well written

the show easily gets the reward for "biggest blue balls" as it always promises some climactic ending for a season and is just shit

season 1. DRAGONS!!! they basically show you there is going to be dragons. in season 2 they might as well be a fucking parakeet.

season 2. EPIC BATTLE!!! the season builds towards this big battle that isn't even half an episode. and why is this? oh, random shit in a bottle.

season 3. WHITE WALKERS!!! yea, I'm still fucking waiting for this shit to happen

and still waiting

there is entirely too many characters on the show that have 0 redeeming qualities. they just make you hate them and are not rounded characters

the only decent character on the show is a midget and I don't know what it is, maybe all the shitty movies he's appeared on since the show started, but even he isn't as good as he was in season 1

I could go on forever

people that read and like the books are the hardest to convince about the series being extremely overrated because they blur the line between book/show.

if you like the book, whatever. good for you. but when I'm trying to have a conversation about the show sucking and you bring up details or plot lines that are from the book that has no bearing on the meric, or lack of, that the show has

like episode one of the new season, could that battle with the Amazonian bitch be any less enjoyable to watch?

it's not about political correctness, but could you not have said 'there's only one decent character' rather than implying that him being a midget somehow aggravates the situation

because there's nothing else on during this time except for silicon valley which is pretty hit and miss.

I'm in a drought right now. I still haven't finished the first episode of this season yet

it's really his defining characteristic and everyone knew who I was talking about

him being a midget probably just means he has to try harder to be known for his "ability" instead of a prop like most other midgets in movies

either way, yea

that scene was pretty dumb -- pretty xena-y. it hasn't happened in the books yet. i think the show will get worse now that it's overtaken the books.

I think that happened after season 1

you're probably still in the honey moon phase

but you read the books. you probably like the show for other merits

I understand the people that like the books and watch the show. I get you guys

the show is still overrated is fuck. not as much as walking dead, but yea

you just don't think about what you're saying

the way you said it implies that he might be a decent character, but he's still a midget so he can't be that good

like 'i had some prosecco but the only decent glass i could find was a coupette'

i'll watch this season. I've been super busy so I don't really get to keep up with it and the motivation wasn't really there

I get what you're saying niall. you're saying I was implying "midget" as a derogatory term based how it was worded. there was no implication there

the fact my favorite filmmaker never got to make a biopic about one of the most intriguing people in history has always bothered me

hope this actually gets done and done well

V for Vendetta - first time seeing it, lots of fun, should have seen it sooner

XXY- from Argentina, really liked it, and is excellent handling it's topic

City of God- amazing movie

Orphan Black season 1- Very interesting show, look forward to more. Tatiana Maslany is an excellent actress, incredible she doesn't have an emmy for this show.

House of Cards seasons 1 & 2- imo not as awemazing as many people say, but still a great show.

pretty decent and understated revenge thriller, but i expected something more i think. not as affecting as I was led to expect. much more excited to see green room, its spiritual successor in a way i guess, this year.
