    g.o.t. from Season 1

    Game of Thrones

    Haven't seen it, I've just begun watching it from the beginning, so here will be crap you saw 8 years ago, plus stale observations undoubtedly made years ago too. Feel free to ignore the thread - I like to do this for epic stuff, as this apparently is, as writing and sharing about it here helps me get more out of it, and I can ask for explanations of parts I don't get. I'll try to be funny but that's hit or miss.

    I'm 9 min. in the 1st episode, dumbass 'get back on your horse' commander already got everybody killed by...wth was that? A big guy? A little crazy eyed girl? yikes
    Now the lone survivor makes his way to I guess Winterfell, which, upon first glimpse, bears a resemblance to Orbit City - I could almost hear Jetson's music in the background



    ok lemme get back to it.

    Well, at least I can stop wondering why that guy was in a wheelchair in season 8. i hope the guy who pushed him out the window gets his just due.
    Pretty good stuff I'll continue with the 2nd episode.

    The way I dislike the villains already tells me this could be pretty good. It's a good environment for villainy too. If the guy who sold his sister appeared in front of me right now it wouldn't go well for him. Ditto for dipshit getting bit trying to kill the girl. If this series ends with them winning I'll be seriously pissed.
    I'm pulling for the good guys as hard as hating the bad guys too, it must be well written I guess.

    I'm actually glad I watched s08ep01 now, as it tells me there is hope; but I don't want any more spoilers and will try to avoid them.

    Good stuff!

    Looked forward all day to watching episode 3. Now the day is done, just sat down to watch it, and the copy I got from a dodgy site was mislabeled 3 when it's actually episode 2. I had already maxed out the hosts dl'ing season 3, so I now have to wait 116 minutes to get it. No way I'm going to watch 4 and then go back to 3.

    Usually no problem, but since I have to get up at five frickin thirty tomorrow I shouldn't stay up watching til midnight



    Well, we'll see. I probably wonuldn't get to sleep before then anyway......

    Watched episode 3 on HBO Nordic. Streaming quality was horrible but you Americans might have better luck with Amazon prime, if you are going legal. I had no choice but to download the 1080 version and that doesn't look too great either.
    Episode 3 was a huge anticlimax and disappointment after all this build up over the prior seasons. I can't imagine G.E. Martin envisioned The Night King as such a pussy! Hopefully, he will be able to complete the books before he dies.
    This doesn't bode well for the last episodes.

    Bond's been posting about his experience with watching it from Season 1, episode 1 so we might not want to spoil season 8 for him before he gets there, but that's just my 2 cents.
    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC

    Least that's the way it looked from here..."
