    Game of Thrones (Season 7)

    Anyone else immediately hear the theme song with the mere mention of GoT?

    Making this thread was just an excuse to report that the Azure Window, has fallen into the sea.

    That's crazy about the Azure Window! What a bummer.

    Anyone else going to the live concert event they're touring? I have tickets for early April.

    This was everything I could have hoped for. The featured musicians were charismatic and highly skilled. The evening was well-staged and the visuals were evocative without overwhelming the music. It was like compressing all the emotional high points of the series into 2 hours, so it was surprisingly moving as well.

    Good to hear. I had to miss out on this, but i'm hoping that it's successful and will hit a second round next year.

    A series of TV films with the Tales of Dunk and Egg wouldn't feel like a steal, but I doubt they're aiming for that.

    That's no surprise. Westworld may last one more season, and that's about it at this point for big audiences in HBO shows as far as I'm aware.

    There's four scripts though. Does that mean four ideas, four episodes?

    Yes, they got four different writers to develop four different spinoff concepts (different Westeros periods too, probably). They're most likely not gonna greenlight all four to series, though. I think they just don't know what the best spinoff would be so they're developing multiple ones and will pick the best one.

    Game of Thrones is by far HBO's biggest hit. They are going to stretch out Martin's work as far as it goes.
    I'm back to rating shit again.

    Carol (Todd Haynes) - ***
    Phoenix (Christian Petzold) - ***½
    The Hateful Eight (Quentin Tarantino) - ***½
    Star Wars: The Force Awakens (JJ Abrams) - ***
    The Mend (John Magary) - ***

    Hahah this has to be a first in the history of literary adaptations.

    At one point I felt bad for Martin because of the pressure, then I realized he can't finish the books because he's too busy spending millions of dollars to build a swimming pool full of Jello or whatever he's doing.

    The previous record holder for longest Game of Thrones episode was Season 6's excellent finale "The Winds of Winter," which ran 68 glorious wildfire-igniting, sept-exploding, Tommen-jumping minutes. According to HBO Now's listings, Episode 6 of Season 7 will best that by three minutes, running a total of 71 minutes. But dwarfing that will be Season 7's finale, which clocks in at a whopping 81 minutes. That's like 33 percent more Game of Thrones than a typical episode!

    Best parts were the cold open and the Hound and the Brotherhood. Great start all around.

    Arya's second scene was kind of unintentionally funny given how dirty and coarse every other soldier we've ever seen on the show has been.

    Yeh, the Hound seems like a completely different person now. That whole seen at the house was incredible - especially him reflecting on what he did to those two nice people who took him and Arya in out of kindness.

    Had no idea that was Ed Sheeran until this morning.

    Could anyone explain the cold open with Arya Stark? (I haven't watched this show in 3-4 seasons.)

    [
    ]
    Yes, all the characters are able to do that now ever since the White Walkers took over Westeros and killed all the characters we once knew. It turns out that they were also shapeshifters and can take on the identity of anybody that they killed. That one killed Walder and Arya and so it can pretend to be both. There were fewer identity shifts than usual this episode. I think the White Walkers must be getting bored with changing faces all the time.
