My Thoughts On Game Of Thrones Season 6 Episode 6 Blood Of My Blood: Stop It! I Don’t Care About Bran!

GOTS6E6 DrogonI’m posting a duplicate of My Thoughts Blog this week for GoT so you can get an idea of what is over on my other website — My Thoughts On. The website is dedicated to my thoughts on my favorite television, books, and movies. Enjoy!

Here are my thoughts on GoT Episode Blood Of My Blood:

Danny Do-Over

My distaste for the Danny plot rages on. I won’t spend too much time on hate spewing, but, seriously? Didn’t we JUST have that speech last week? Why did we even NEED that speech? Girl, they are ALREADY FOLLOWING YOU!

The only way this truly would have worked was if there was some grumbling about getting on the ships — that don’t even exist yet. If that was the case, then pull your Khal Drogo speech out of your pocket.

Another annoying thing in regards to the Danny plot was the tie in with the after show when the writer or producer or whatever said that Danny could sense her dragon because they are like her children. Um, did you watch your own show? Danny saw Drogon kicking up some dirt. That’s not a feeling, that’s seeing. I think Drogon was scoffing at this plot and that’s what caused the dirt to move.

Drogon is cool though. Like, real, real cool.

Arya needs to kill that bitch.

Give the face to the dude. Trade accomplished. Drop mic, peace out.

GOTS6E6 Jaime viewLannisters Versus High Sparrow

Here the show looked a little bit more like the show we adored.

First, cool stuff.

How cool was Jaime Lannister when he rode up those stairs? Pretty cool.

Cool shot, of how small the army was versus all of the King’s Landing folk. It gave perspective of how the High Sparrow has amassed an army of his own.

The look on Margaery’s face. I really think she was pleasantly surprised her family showed up for her.

Now onto plot stuff.

GOTS6E6 MargaeryWhat made this cool was Margaery always plotting. She didn’t think her family was going to show for her, so she makes an alliance with the High Sparrow. To solidify this alliance, she manipulates Tommen yet again. She made an alliance with the High Sparrow to save herself and played right into his hands. Jaime and Grandma Tyrell were in total shock. They had been outplayed in the game of thrones. While they had been dinking around with each other, the High Sparrow was playing a chess game ten moves ahead of them. When Cersei did her walk of shame, everyone thought that was so horrible and the worst. That was the High Sparrows play. He wanted everyone to know that. The threat of the walk of shame caused Margaery to make the alliance and caused her family to show up there to stop it. Therefore, in front of everyone, the High Sparrow got to show the people of King’s Landing the defeat of the two houses. He didn’t have to do a damn thing.

Also, in the game of thrones, this is all very, very interesting. The scene later between the twins is fascinating. They still have the hubris of a great house. However, the Lannister House is in shambles. Tommen is so weak that he can be bent to anyone’s will. He has turned his back on his own family. The Lannisters have lost visible power among its people. While they are preoccupied with the High Sparrow, the rest of Westeros is making significant gains in their efforts to take the Iron Throne. The Lannisters are like a girl who is broken up with and tells her friends she is shocked it happened — despite everyone else clearly knowing it was about to happen.

Of note is that Jaime is now on his way to Riverrun. You know who else is on their way to Riverrun … Brienne! Yay! I can’t wait for Brienne and Jaime to meet up again. I wonder what this will do for Sansa Strong? She wants to take back Winterfell from Ramsey Bolton. Will she be willing to make an alliance with the Lannisters to do that? How will Riverrun play into it? Jaime is ordered to take it back for the Lannisters, but that’s Sansa’s Uncle who holds it now. I see some kind of alliance. I think this is perhaps where the show might be able to get back on track.

As for Cersei, I don’t think her trial will be a trial by combat. That would be too easy. She might be in for it.Well, unless there is some magical opponent, which, let’s not kid ourselves, GoT has turned way more mystical lately.

GOTS6E6 OFMBoring Bran

What the fuck. I’m so over this plot. So Hodor loses his life to buy 15 minutes? Ned Stark’s brother is alive? He swoops in at the last second to save his nephew who may or may not be fully his nephew anymore? As for the Three Eyed Raven — what has he even done? Why would Bran even want to be the Three Eyed Raven at this point? Ned Stark’s brother is some kind of half White Walker? That’s a lot of magic that the Children of the Forest has. Why can’t the Children of the Forest make some magic to defeat the White Walkers then?

Make this plot stop.

Serendipitous Sam

Gee. I wonder if that sword will be important.

Until next time!

My Thoughts On Fear The Walking Dead Season 2 Midseason Finale Shiva: Screw You FTWD You Blew It

FTWD Ofelia

I want to tear my own flesh off after watching this piece of shit show


I’m serious. Did they try to write the most insulting, idiotic, implausible episode ever? How stupid do they think their viewers are to keep watching this show?

How do you possibly screw up, this badly, a spinoff from TWD? I mean, the only worse spinoff was Joey after Friends.

Nick, the second best character on the show, what? Just walks off? Away from his mom and his sister? I mean, this kind of makes sense in the abstract, that he walked away from his family when he was on drugs, but it doesn’t fit this situation. At all. His survival instinct is too strong to simply kill himself. He had every motivation to seek drugs, he would seek survival now.

He was thriving as a member of the family. He seemed to generally care for his mom. He boldly tells TRavis to get back, she needs him. He loves his sister. He just disappears into the wasteland. I honestly have the worst taste in my mouth right now.

Also, WTF about Daniel??? Yes, he is going crazy, but why? Why is he going crazy? It just sort of happens in the show! NO CATALYST! And don’t tell me that it was because all the death got to be too much. He was the first person just a week ago to steal Strand’s gun to try and save his pseudo relationship with Madison and her family, but more importantly, his daughter.

There is no way that he leaves his daughter to fend for herself. He would not set himself on fire and leave her in the walker world all on her own. SO STUPID!

This is the same man who tortured the soldier. Who knew to trade a zombified kid in an exchange for Travis and Alicia. It’s soooo implausible!

There is no hate watching this show. I won’t watch under any circumstances. I’m so disgusted by it right now I can’t even write a good thoughts blog. I just want to scream at somebody. I feel so disrespected as a viewer that the writers and show runners think it’s okay to write something so bad, trading on sincere loyalty from the fans for this genre and TWD for an unearned paycheck. There are so many writers in the world who would be thrilled with a chance to have a hit show on television. Yet these writers throw their good fortune away. It’s a slap in the face how lazy these writers and show runners are.

I hope viewers stand up and boycott this show. Just don’t watch. I know there is such a lack of good television shows on these days that you might be tempted just to tune in, in case they turn it around. But look at how little they value our loyalty by writing this dribble.

I for one, will not be back.

Screw you, FTWD. You managed to ruin a home run.
