Hey, if you have a sec could you post a review of the Last Jedi on the SW Discussion thread?

TIA
It's like he thinks of himself as Siskel and Ebert. (and I didn't care what Siskel and Ebert had to say either)

I'm not making a big production of my "review" of the show. I do not pretend that anybody cares what I think.

Now that this thing is ending, I love the Starbucks coffee cup gaffe. Imagine all the fun for months now putting small plugs in all over the place:

Tormund and a beard trimmer.
Bran with a I've fallen and I can't get up necklace.
Howland Reed walking around in the background with a cell phone saying "Can you hear me now?"
Arya wearing some sick Air Jordans

Why didn't Jaime and Tyrion send some of the unsullied to kill Bron on his way out? I don't understand why they just let him leave as easily as he snuck in.
because while they both have done questionable things, they both still operate with some honor.
Agreements under duress shouldn't be held against anybody. Bronn had a crossbow pointed at their head during that "negotiation". Bronn was acting dishonorably. Jamie and Tyrion had every right to have the unsullied go after him.


Bronn acting dishonorably? He is a mercenary and never pretended to be otherwise so he was acting perfectly in character. Both Lannister brothers knew exactly what they were getting from Bronn. Bronn is a sell sword that spent years doing their bidding and he ended up getting shafted so all he is doing is making sure he gets what he is owed.

Anyway I guarantee the Bronn situation is being built up to be a Han Solo moment, you think he is just a greedy sell sword but in the end he forgets about the money and reward and swoops in to save the good guys in time for them to win. Book it, Bronn will save either Jamie or Tyrion in the battle next week.

Swag...you have some decent points and you are far more knowledgeable about this whole thing than most of us, but you need to get a grip and realize what you're doing. You're way over the top now Watching and waiting for what you can criticize next. You literally just broke that down like it's the worst thing to ever be recorded on TV.

also this now has me imagining bronn running into the room with the seinfeld bassline playing in the background and it's making me laugh

I'm not saying it's out of character for Bronn. I'm just saying that it would not be dishonorable for Jamie or Tyrion to back out of their "deal" or kill Bronn altogether.

Not really. It's actually one of the best shows on TV right now.

lol not my intent. I think Walking Dead is still around, right? That'll be the last time I post anything like that. Sincerely, no more negativity from me. Tone is hard to convey and it's just not coming through nor having the affect in response I intended.

Anyone defending this last episode has to be a casual viewer who doesn't really know what's going on. The writing is so bad. Reddit's ASOIAF and Gameofthrones boards both think it was a disaster. I'm so disappointed.
I'm not a casual viewer.

Maybe attack the episode and not the people who liked it?


By far the more hostile posts are from people defending the show.

Screw that man, keep posting your thoughts. There are certain people on this board that will defend something they are fans of to the death. This isn't the only show or franchise they do this with. Any criticism they take very personal. That's on them, not you.

I honestly don't understand why people continue to watch something they find so flawed. Flawed to the point they watch, probably re-watch, read tweets and message boards about it, then take all this time to post about how much they don't like it.

I can think of several series that I was really invested in and then stopped watching. Lost after about season 4. The Sopranos after season 4 or sometime during 5 (I did watch the finale'). The Walking Dead after season 3 I think. I just didn't enjoy it anymore. Probably not popular opinions around here either.

Hell, I have very little excitement for SW Ep9 coming later this year based on the fact I thought Ep7 was mediocre and Ep8 was just bad (my opinion).

It doesn't bother me in the least bit that anyone for almost any reason doesn't like GOT or did and now thinks it has gone to sh**. It's just a tv show. Who cares. I just am baffled as to why people tune in for every episode when they are predisposed of to believe it will suck. It's strange to me.
Whatever it takes

Look I'm not saying anyone should refrain from posting negative thoughts.

But posting a TLDR about this show that's 98% negative is insane.

I'm not predisposed. I still remain glass half full and they can end it just fine if they want. After Ep 3 I said I was impressed with the scale of the episode and how hard it was to film. I was fine with half of the criticisms of it just due to what they had to go through to film the ep. I even then said it's all bout ep 5 for this season and it appears that'll be the case.

But ep 4 still sucked. Can't wait for Sunday though. Hope it delivers.

Or perhaps we criticize the criticisms when they are worse than the thing they are criticizing?

I doubt anybody here is thinking the show is perfect or the best show of all time or anything.

It's not just that.. it's like they watch with a notepad and pen ready to write down things to criticize in a long TexAgs post the next day.

As opposed to 1000 single posts about how good the episode was? Some of us are interested in hearing both sides - especially Swag's extremely well thought out critique - and a good offset to the "really liked that episode" posts. What's insane is how much it bothers you people expect more out of what's been the best series of all time.

I'm right there with you with Lost. As soon as they got off the island I lost all interest.
