    Are we just talking the tv series here or the Song of Ice and Fire books as well?

    I must congratulate Gagger. Your news bot (Boyo) is particularly convincing when he engages in rugby discussions. I'd almost believe he was a real boy.

    I'm always quick to rubbish any movie/show adapted from a book as not as good as the book.

    But I must say I'm finding the opposite now GOT has moved past the books. It's enjoyable to not know what is coming and the epic scope of the TV series means you don't feel so short changed missing the intricate details that a book has the luxury of labouring over.

    I'm not sure if it's partly because I already know the characters, or the fact that book 6 is taking so fucking long.

    Well, ep 9, the penultimate of this season i guess, was[spoiler]HELL ON FUCKING TOAST. Holy shit balls to the wall action. That battle scene mustve rendered every previous attempt in cinematic history as redundant. Fuckin fire breathing dragons razing shit, Bolton gets his face gnawed off by his own dogs, so satisfying. Astonished to read some uber nerd crit types on the internet calling the episode "disappointing" because of some arcane, oblique, book related quibbles. "The Ballwrenching Argonaut of House Glowcock does NOT wear burgundy, this clashes with House Matilda's colours, to which his 3rd cousin removed by betrothed marriage Griselda consorts, dont these people THINK when they make this garbage" etc etc, get a life ya tool just enjoy it for what it is, some epic bloodthirsty glorious shit![/spoiler]

    oops, here in 2019 now and only one episode left.

    Turns out the book readers are SPEWING about the whole denouement. "Worst 3 episodes everrr." Guess what? Fuck them. It's supposed to be entertainment. You know, that thing you enjoy. Not some speccy exercise in trainspotting for bug-eyed dungeons and dragons twats, hunched over their laptops, clad in their distressed homemade capes that nana knitted for them, clutching their little hand-drawn maps of fuckin Westeros.

    I'm enjoying it well enough. I'm disappointed we had to wait 18 months for what we have but still enjoying it. Not the best season in terms of story. Certainly the best in terms of scale. What worries me most is from the spoilers I've seen everyone is convinced of an ending that would truly suck.

    Sure did! I don't get why people are saying there was no justification.

    Best friend beheaded by Cersei in front of her
    Her nephew won't love her anymore because she's his aunty.
    And her fam is batshit crazy.

    Everyone in the series seems to have had a loved one raped/murdered/sold and they didn't go full Dresden!

    Looking forward to the conclusion. Great entertainment

    **SPOILER**

    Talk about affirmative action gone mad! Jesus! They made the fucken wheelie bloke the fucking KING! PC gone mad!

    Let me guess, the internet is having a weeping great panty shit over that disgraceful, disgusting final episode. Crapping its collective dungarees after such a pathetic denouement. "Why didnt such-and-such do such-and-such? WHY? ANSWER ME" they wail into the windless internet.

    I thought shit was fine. Looked epic to me, was right into it. Although I was hoping they would tie up the closing minutes with an epic 4-minute musical montage with, yes, the soaring strains of ED SHEERAN mewling over his plucked mandolin or some shit. Fuck yeah, another grinning Eddie cameo, strumming jauntily on the ol' mando as he strode cocksure and red through the ashen Kings Landing shire, shoehorn him right in there, just to throw The Seething & Unbetrothed InterNet Guardian Gatekeepers of The Books into an apoplectic tizz of frothing impotent rage

    First half was a gripping epic; second half was saccharine bullshit. How they shift from mass genocide and the firebombing of Dresden v2.0 to happily ever after is beyond me.

    Great series.
