I haven't watched with the commentaries yet

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 19 March 2012 23:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

The idea of a commentary track done by the kids is delightful but I am not looking forward to their analyses of the various sexposition scenes.

I'm finding Feast for Crows a bit slow so far after the insanity of SoS.

I think that this is the typical reaction, unless I'm mistaken.

Johnny Favre (Leee), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 03:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

ya same feeling here... it's taking me a lot more time to go through Feast for Crows than it took to read the previous three. the focus is really too much on characters i don't really care about i guess.

Jibe, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 05:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, there are only two POV characters I'm heavily invested in in this one.

Everyone in the Seven Kingdoms is excited about the NFL playoffs.

The wildlings and the men of the Night's Watch and even some northmen are all pulling for the Giants, of course. But in the Vale of Arryn and the Mountains of the Moon, they're Falcons fans.

The Lannisters are cheering on Detroit, even if the lion is the wrong color, but some of the smallfolk of Lannisport on its western bay are fond of those 49ers. The High Septon and all the septa and septons and devout of the realm are for the Saints.

The butchers and tanners of King's Landing and Oldtown are behind the Packers, the smiths and armorers are with the Steelers. At the Citadel of Oldtown, the archmaesters and the Conclave are all about the Ravens, but across the narrow sea the khals and Dothraki horselords are screaming and whistling for the Broncos. In Volantis, the tigers are Bengals backers; the elephants are rooting for whoever plays the Bengals.

Nobody anywhere knows what a 'Texan' is, but a few Dornishmen might support them anyway, just to be perverse.

One commonality unites all the Seven Kingdoms, and the lands beyond. Everyone everywhere hates the Patriots, and Evil Little Bill.

I had no idea Bronn was in Robson & Jerome until now, I never heard their music but I remember the NME and Melody Maker hating them sooo much.

But just 10 days after moving, Dinklage was back in Brooklyn, playing a “bitchy barista” in “A Case of You,” a small-budget romantic comedy written by his friend, the actor (and “I’m a Mac” pitchman) Justin Long.

i would love to see this

Somewhat scathing review in the New York Times still considers this a show for Dungeons and Dragons fans and no one else.

seriously though: critics disparaging the show for plotting missteps and tone apparently have no interest in taking a look at the source material at all?
there's a lot of "man they killed ned, what a disaster for hbo" and my understanding is that uh like everybody dies on this fucking show

1 week to "Charles Dingus" (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 29 March 2012 20:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

seems like for season one that almost astonishingly neatly every 100 pages of the first book equaled one episode. so i assume same holds true for season two?

y'know what else had a ton of characters and no real central figure? The Wire

according to the article ned linked dinklage is signed on for SIX seasons...there are only five completed books, and grrm doesn't show any signs that he is hurrying to finish the books.
