Five years ago I decided to be a public defender. Today I was offered a job leading a unit that protects lenders in foreclosure processes. And, considering the salary might just make me able to...

Thank you for finally fleshing out your argument.

I honestly think you (and you may think of same of me) have a poor grasp on the thematic vehicles at work in the series, or at least digest the...

No one has advocated for "historical accuracy," as GoT isn't historical in the first place. And would you mind referencing the examples you had in mind?

Yes, you're right about the definition not being synonymous with "literally what happened". lol

But, when you're trying to project a certain theme or message gained from a sample, certain concepts...

Well, that explains your position then. And it's no problem at all.

I think the fatigue over that brand of scrutiny (or expression of scrutiny?) is understandable. But the "fake outrage" line of thinking is always douchey, whether applied to somewhat trivial shit...

Martin is receiving some press for his defense of the scene (or condemnation of criticism over sexual violence, rather) in this quote:



I think the allegorical defense works completely, but I also...

My parents watch this religiously and I caught an episode with them in early March. Is that douchey Italian-American guy still chugging along?

Completely agree. I realize that they aren't going to allot the time necessary to completely flesh out his character (as I assume happens in the books), but to completely flip him from how he was...

Wtf.

That's the weirdest justification I've read on this.

I wonder if/how long it will be until Justin Smith gets real HOF consideration. He has to be up there as one of the most underrated players of this generation.

Before you further outsource your thinking, reducing the scene to that simple a message is offensive to Sansa's character and is absolutely ludicrous given her place in the story. Even if the scene...

I certainly wouldn't "defend" it on that ground, but I'm not sure why it's so important that the scene have one simple purpose, let alone such a short-sighted one. I'll restate what I said earlier....

I don't think much of anyone left with that impression at all. What an absurd reading of the presentation.

Has this season really been worse than season 4?

If that's the case, I have no interest in watching. Seasons 1-3 were stellar, but season 4 was one of the least enjoyable seasons of any show I've...

Do you think the presentation undermines Sansa's character based on her being female or relegates her in the story? Or do you think it spares the audience a visceral depiction and becomes a lynch pin...

If that fight scene ends up being Bronn's last, I will be thrice as peeved as I was during The Hound's supposed death.

Also, no, the scene in question in this thread does not seem necessary or...

No one did that.



You're vilifying those wishing to vet the accusations. That's as trusting of the source as I can imagine.
