So no Bran and/or Hodor next season, since they've caught up with the books.

Makes total sense since they have never done anything on the show that wasnt in the books.

The show runners have said quite often they have GRRM's grand plan in some type of high-level design about how everything will go in the books, in case he's not around to finish it, plus giving them the idea on what they can and can't do in line with how the books are going to go. 

 

No reason they couldn't get the information about what's going into WOW for Bran, Hodor and Meera and place it into S5.  I think that it's good to pass by Hodor and Bran for S5 since there is an ridiculous amount of stuff that happens in parallel in AFFC and ADWD that has barely been touched upon in the show up until now.  A few random things from ASOS as well, I think.

I finally read all the books. The first three books are very well written.  Even though I knew about the

I also don't know why fans of the book were complaining about season 4 leaving out,

Why didn't anybody post about season 4 being released already?

 

Why do I even follow this thread.


I play bad games

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

There are just so many un-Godzilla like things it should be easy to see why people didn't like it (also the annoying cast). Zilla being killed by missiles was the biggest thing that bothered me Godzilla is supposed to be far stronger than that. The army shouldn't be able to hurt Godzilla unless they are using something like MechaGodzilla or Moguera.

I posted this in the Xbox One discussion thread but just incase:

 

If you didn't catch it last night or don't have HBO, the first episode of Season 5 of Game of Thrones is free for all Xbox Live member until April 16th.

It'll also likely be on HBO dozens of times before next week.  HBO Now is available if you have Sling TV, supposedly went live on Saturday.

 

I though it was an interesting set-up episode, since they started a number of items going forward that should play out well in the rest of the season.  Surprising to see some new actors for old parts as well.

Yeah at first I thought they replaced the actor for Grey Worm or he roided up.

In related news, Carice Van Houten (Melisandra) was apparently at the near 7-hour Red Sox @ Yankees game from this weekend:

She was on the Late Night With Seth Myers show on Thursday, where she talked about going to her first American baseball game, plus som other stuff:

 

 

She apparently knows him from back in 1999, from some random meeting in the Netherlands between them.

Drink up me hearties YO HO!!!!

 

I especially liked the part where Tywin was resurrected from having his kids doing the nasty in the chamber beside the body. Too bad it didn't work for Joffre. I mean they DID say they were going to deviate from the books...

I can wait. Wouldn't be fun to know what's going to happen and can't talk about it.

I can wait too. I heard the quality is not that good either. I don't want to watch all 4 of it and have to wait for a month for the new ones.

Here's an article that talks about the leak:

Was first four episodes, blurred out reviewer watermark, 480p resolution.   Likely a reviewer's copy that ended up being used in a bad way.

I'd rather wait for the high definition broadcast of them. Plus it's nice to binge watch game of thrones but I think it really excels by making us wait week to week.

I enjoyed the first episode of this season. A bit boring at times, but that's fine. Should get better as it goes along. I will not watch the new episodes until they actually air on TV.

Plus some random stuff out of left field, as well.
