    Why does him being a celebrity excuse people being shit?
    They get paid millions to be put in the public spotlight and to be criticized. Don't feel bad for them.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Eh, I think Spinal was just messing with you. It is a little funny that you ask to be updated on a show like Game of Thrones when you've missed 30-40 hours of plot.
    BTW Irish I forgot to come back to this- what's the logic in skipping several seasons? Not only is it several seasons worth of motivational blood tears and sweat from (basically every character) , it's not like those seasons were especially bad either. There are quite a few episodes that I would love to experience again (for the first time).

    TL;DR: I watched the premiere because I thought this was the final season. (Turns out, it's not. So I'm ambivalent again, at least until next year.)

    Euron Greyjoy looking like a Euro-hipster version of Eddie Murphy in RAW was more distracting than Ed Sheeran.

    Great opener otherwise. Best "previously on" montage ever.

    For me, one of the most interesting things about my relationship to GoT is that it's constantly lumped into the high-minded drama canon but I've always enjoyed it more as a fluff, entertaining pop corn soap. It's got more in common with Lost or Agents of SHIELD or Stranger Things, but it gets treated like it's a Sopranos or Deadwood or Mad Men. I don't even mean this as a diss, but it's weird how much aura of "prestige television" it commands despite being so fucking base and nerdy.

    Are people expecting a resolution to the Sheeran thing? I bet it'll just jump to Arya on the road the next day or whatever. I don't expect all the soldiers to have their throats cut in the morning or anything like that. Seems like just a one-off moment. But yeah, Sheeran was kind of distracting if you know him by sight. And Broadbent, much as I love him, was more or less in Professor mode. Maybe he'll get to do more a la Pryce, but I kinda figure not. He'll probably have to deal with Sam's rule-breaking once it's discovered and make a choice and all that.

    Nice opening episode though. Oh to make millions for a few minutes of screen time a week. Tyrion didn't have a line. $2.5 million still apply? Holy cats.

    One thing I haven't seen mentioned is that it's really weird that Dragonstone would be completely abandoned. Even if we are to believe that Stannis truly went 'all in' and didn't even leave a token force to hold it, that would have been snatched up quick, most likely by the Lannisters, seeing as it's a huge strategic asset. One of those things that gets streamlined for time, but still.

    True. Would have been cool if these guys started coming out of nowhere, cackling and squeaking.

    One queasy food match cut per episode seems to be this season's goal.
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Also Cersei now has Ellaria who directly killed her daughter. Next episode is not going to be pretty.

    -And just like that, the worst of the Dorne family is gone. I believe the last sister living is the one that seduced Bronn a while back? She is the best of the group. They were never given solid material to work with otherwise.

    -Well, one dragon HAS to go done to that ballista, right?

    -Melisandra and Davos reunion. I imagine Dany won't take well to witches burning girls at the stake.

    -Arya's disappointment when she expects Jon Snow, and sees Sansa/Littlefinger instead. She was almost robotic until she found out about the change.

    -Need a Mountain kill scene... Although he's already tortured one Cersei prisoner, I figure Cersei will have other things in mind for her new prisoners.

    -Theon to be picked up by Gendry, lol...

    -Euron's war cries are beyond bad mugging. Very cheesy actor so far.

    -Great ship though.

    -Grey Worm is a dead man at Casterly Rock.

    -Varys and Littlefinger need SOMETHING. Their scenes are on repeat.

    Yeah, Euron feels a bit out of place, either because of his contemporary clothing or because he seems to come from a show with a lot worse acting.

    Right before the previous episode started I told my friends that Sam Tarly would be the highlight of this seasons and I was SO RIGHT.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think the show has been there before.

    black widow - 8
    zero dark thirty - 9
    the muse - 7

    There has never been a scene set in Casterly Rock in both the show or the books. People just talk about it a lot.
