Also HBO's streaming player sucks all the dicks.
Cersei's scenes in that episode were unbelievable.

Cersei is by far the best character on the show.

The Lannisters in general were all unbelievable characters. Until they weren't. This rewatch is fucking depressing.

pity the show was canceled after season 4 (or 6, if you want more closure, but you have to endure 5...)

Did a stupid waste of time list of every episode and grouped them into categories of Great, Very Good, Good, Average, Bad, and Very Bad. Personal rankings of course, im sure there are a lot of ones here people disagree with.

S1 GREAT (9, 10), VERY GOOD (5, 7), GOOD (1, 4, 6. 8), AVERAGE (3)

S2 GREAT (9), VERY GOOD (3, 4), GOOD (5, 8, 10), AVERAGE (1, 6, 2, 7)

S3 GREAT (4, 5, 9), VERY GOOD (1, 6), GOOD (2, 3, 7, 10), AVERAGE (8)

S4 GREAT (2, 8, 9), VERY GOOD (1, 6, 7, 10), GOOD (4, 5), AVERAGE (3)

S5 GREAT (8), GOOD (1, 5, 9, 10), AVERAGE (2, 3, 7), BAD (4), VERY BAD (6)

S6 GREAT (10), VERY GOOD (2, 5), GOOD (3, 4, 7), AVERAGE (1, 6, 8, 9)

S7 GREAT (4), VERY GOOD (3), GOOD (2, 1), AVERAGE (7), BAD (5, 6)

S8 GREAT (2), GOOD (1), AVERAGE (3, 5), BAD (6), VERY BAD (4)

the rumination of a great series ending in failure is wholesome

Fuck me for getting excited again, but House of the Dragon is filming, and posting character pics on twitter. I have several reasons for being super optimistic about this series though.

A) The showrunner isnt D&D, adores the source material, and talks with George all the time during the process, something D&D stopped doing a few seasons in.

B) The source material is amazing and its FINISHED. Also, everyone, go read Fire & Blood. It's basically a Targaryen history book, but done in a unique and awesome way that is loaded with characterization and various viewpoints of key figures through history.

C) The acting, production, etc was never bad in GoT, that is going to be remaining the same, so we're good there. Sapochnik is heavily involved, the same composer is back, the costume designer is amazing, all these things will continue to be great.

Check out the twitter for pics of characters, including Matt Smith as The Rogue Prince Daemon Targaryen and Steve Toussaint as The Sea Snake Corlys Velaryon, two of the best and most fascinating characters from ASOIAF history

Matt Smith is fucking awesome so his casting alone ensured I'll be watching (but who am I kidding I'd watch either way even if just out of morbid curiosity)

EDIT: Oh goddamn Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen is more inspired casting

Nah, this is a prequel set 170 years before GoT when the Targaryen's were at the height of their power, before the fall of the dragons. You'll have Starks and Lannisters and Baratheons and Tyrells and all of them in the story, but it wont be the same ones.

Probably some boobs though.

I didn’t know much about it other than Matt Smith, so the Considine info put a smile on my face

Can they resist the urge to wink at centuries old characters?
