    Tywin's introduction is incredible and he never looks back.

    Oh Jesus of course
    I guess I was thinking that scene was during the war, thus season 2

    I'm doing the same thing for this show that I did for The Sopranos and The Wire

    After every episode I read the Wikipedia summary to make sure I understood what happened and then the AV Club review to make sure I'm keeping up on themes

    The war started in season one. T'was the kidnapping of Tyrion that set it of!

    Fuck off and die.

    oh jesus i absentmindedly slipped into the comments on one of the early reviews on the AV Club and kill me now

    Accusations of the show being clearly and overtly racist

    Calling the reviewer a slur for a homosexual because he was glad they allowed Emilia Clarke to keep her clothes on for a whole episode

    Avclub comment sections are usually better than most but they are still comment sections.

    It's particularly older comment sections and specifically ones for brand new shows

    Like I think there were still people coming into the comment sections on True Detective to go "this show is actually shitty you have all been fooled!!" even for the finale and you see that a lot on new shows

    I expect to see a lot of that for this entire season of Fargo, people refusing to believe it's really good

    Avclub comments section are usually pretty enjoyable

    except for Girls

    Tywin Lannister might be my favorite character in the show

    He is a stone cold motherfucker but he has clear, reasonable motivations and Charles Dance is a goddamn icon

    Jamie is my favorite in the books, I hope Nikolaj keeps up his performance through this season and he might take that spot for the show too.

    I mean part of it is just because it's Natalie Dorner and.... Natalie Dorner! But Margery Tyrell is so much more awesome and fleshed out in this show than the was in the books, and I really like her in the show

    okay "Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things" is a really good title for an episode

    I would read a book called that

    Watching some old episodes. On season 1 episode 1. Holy shit there's some foreshadowing. Ned and friends come across a dead stag in the woods and Theon asks if it was a mountain lion that did it.

    Don't forget the stag antler in its throat.

    they basically walk across a scene that might as well have a wooden sign that says THIS IS AN OMEN

    It makes sense that they didn't film all of it, but I'm still disappointed so much stuff got cut from The House of the Undying.

    I'm curious how they do a lot of the backgrounds and establishing shots on this show

    Like now Tyrion's in this rad prison tower and I'm sure they didn't actually build this set

    Do they generally do CG, matte paintings, or models

    My brain says CG but my heart says models cause models are rad

    The mood has finally struck me to actually try and catch up on this show, having seen none of it

    I've had a couple of the major surprises spoiled for me just because it's kind of impossible to not hear about them

    I know that
    Sean Bean gets beheaded by the end of Season 1

    At the end of Season 3 there's a wedding that doesn't go well for just about anybody

    and now there's been ANOTHER wedding where that asshole kid nobody likes bites it

    I'm sure there's plenty more to it beyond that stuff, but these seem to be The Big Moments on this show, am I gonna have a reduced experience knowing they're coming since I'm just watching this as any old TV show, I don't care about the books much

    I've just started watching it too. Up to episode 8 now.
    I thought Sean Bean died at the end of the first episode.

    The latest issue of Cinefex has a huge writeup about the visual effects in Game of Thrones, unfortunately I haven't had time to read it yet, but it goes through all the seasons so far.

    Don't be silly. He's the most honest man in Westeros. Trust every word he says.

    I take it my reaction when they say the name of the show in an episode was not supposed to be me going "UGH"

    I don't think there's a way to talk about "the game of thrones" without sounding ultra corny

    communication, in any relationship, is key. Especially with your secret whore, though. That one is pretty crucial.

    You could just call up a dude and go "hey don't kill that lady we told you to kill" and now you don't have this crazy war on your hands

    All I keep thinking is, "This!? This is how that twerp dies?" I was not pleased. Grr Martin can't even kill the villains without making me sad.

    At least now my wife will stop saying, "Want me to tell you what happens next?"
