What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!

 

It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons. 

 

DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs. 

 

Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it.

So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?

I agree, I think Sansa is his only weakness. Classic case of a man being totally messed up by a woman. If Sansa weren't in the picture though, he'd be even more of a snake than he is now. I like your idea about Sansa ruling the North, but I do worry she's taken too much from Cersei, as she's really the only (female) ruler she's ever known. With Joffrey and with Ramsey she's definitely been through it... but will that make her stronger or vengeful? Interesting point about females ruling the kingdoms... I think it's quite similar to real life where women would be capable of ruling if we weren't always fighting each other and bringing each other down (I'm just thinking of my own life, I've been supported personally and professionally by more males than females and have had more significant disagreements/issues with woman, especially this past year - I had 3 women gang up on me who tried to destroy my career and it was my male coworkers who helped me fight that when I made it clear I couldn't do it on my own... no women stepped up). It may come down to a massive female battle... Cersei vs. Sansa vs. Dany... With two having something against 1 and the those two being unwilling to help each other. 

I'm still waiting to see how Arya actually plays a role though... She seems like a forgotten character who has had her own independent story line. Initially her goal was to kill Cersei, but now that she's going back to Winterfell and changed her plan so quickly, I don't know what her end game is. She wasn't even in the last episode. I honestly am least interested in her story line, but there is clearly a point if she's still around going strong. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I didn't take Littlefinger's expressions so much as awe at Sansa, as I did as him hearing about years of records being kept and Sansa asking the one man to go through them. Just a guess, but maybe he is worried there is something incriminating in there. Then in the preview for the next episode, we see what looks like him unsheathing his dagger, maybe to prevent the incriminating information from getting back to Sansa and Jon?

@Tamara76 We'll get those third level replies soon! Hahahahaha.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

@alexasteph I surely hope so. It makes for such randomness not to be able to exactly reply, lol.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I just finished watching the Handmaid's Tale. Woah that was such an amazing series.  No BT for the handmaids Smiley Happy.  

 

Also loving the Strain and GOT being back on and getting more into IZombie

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I just finished watching Friends From College on Netflix. If you like dry humor then you might like this one.  The episodes are only 30 minutes and 8 episodes, I hope season 2 comes along soon.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

GOT last night....I don't want to give anything away but Diana Rigg (Lady Olenna) is an amazing actress. I couldn't have imagined a better end to that episode.

And even with the circumstances of her situation she still managed to one-up the Lannisters.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

@trishavt That was epic for sure. But I don't know who I'm rooting for anymore! Do I hate Cersei for being evil or do I love her for being genius? Am I worried Dany is going to let her power go to her head and make reckless decisions or will Tyrion keep her on track? Is Jon gunna accept his role as a leader or will he run away from it as soon as he accomplishes his goal? Will Sansa turn in to Cersei?? Is Jaime turning on Cersei? There is only one thing I do know 100%. Littlefinger can't be trusted. He'd take all of them down quickly and happily when he has the chance. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I don't think Cersei is genius. She always shoots herself in the foot. First by thinking she could control the High Sparrow and ending up a prisoner, and then she causes her last son to commit suicide. She is lucky she has smart people around her. Her brother is helpful for military purposes, Euron Greyjoy is kicking but on the seas, and her Maester is very intelligent and provides guidance.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Im rooting for Jon Snow/Sansa Stark (any of the Starks).

Spoiler

I have a suspicion Sansa will reign in his place (Im betting something will happen to him-wild hunch). Out of all the characters, Sansa has suffered the most after being tormented by Joffrey and Ramsay. It seems fitting that Sansa would come to rule the North given her experiences and background. One of my favorite scenes from the last episode was Sansa taking charge in John's absence. You could tell Littlefinger was in awe as well, and he's made several comments in the past that she looks just like her mother, who we all know is the only person he has ever loved. I also suspect that Sansa will be Littlefinger's undoing. To leave a character like Littlefinger unharmed or without a tragic ending seems unfair to its viewers. Case in point: House Frey. Anyway, I hope he gets his just deserts.

 

I've watched several of the producer/writer commentary videos and they are keen on making a point that females can and should rule kingdoms. It's a big reason why I love this show. Last point: as much as I dislike Cersei, I want her to stick around because her story is so interesting. And I cant wait to see more from Arya.

@Tamara76 sooooo good!! This episode was amazing!! 

Spoiler
I was so impressed by Olenna!!! Like seriously!?!? Good on you lady!! She was one of my favorites. Danys line is known for intermarrying. I think her parents were brother and sister if memory serves me? Or somehow related? Don't quote me on that though. But yeah, them being related doesn't mean it won't happen. I'm still thinking it might since Jon and Dany are ostensibly the Fire and Ice the books refer too according to some websites? GoT throws me for a loop all the time though so who knows. I'm also impressed with Cersei. I can't say I blame her for this episode. What they did to Myrcella was jacked. I'm already fiending for this Sunday that's for sure. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

@Tamara76 

Spoiler
Well... The Targaryens have been known to couple off that way before so it wouldn't be too odd for them. Given the things Melisandre has been saying, there does seem to be a lot of foreshadowing for it to happen. I also think Tyrion is the 3rd head of the dragon, there is some evidence he's also a Targaryen. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

OMG!   @alexasteph @trishavt@liv545

 

Lady Olenna is savage!

 

Littlefinger is ultra shady.

 

And for a minute, I thought that....

Spoiler
Jon Snow and Khaleesi might hook up, but given Bran's visions, it sounds like they may actually be aunt/nephew (?I think?), so.... nope!   Hope not!

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I've been binge watching The Walking Dead on Netflix the last few days.  I missed the first few seasons so decided to watch it from the beginning. Now I can't stop.  Maggie and Glenn forever! 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Tonight I will be watching "Midnight, Texas" on NBC, and hoping for the best!  I hope they haven't changed it too much from the books!

 I really like Charlaine Harris' books, but not necessarily the wild TV adaptations which stray from the books.  I feel the same way about movies, I want them to stay true to the books.  Good luck to "Midnight, Texas!"  Smiley Happy

 

Edit:  To be brief, I didn't love it.   Eeeeew!  Too gory for me, and throws everything from 3 books in all at once in the first 2 shows!

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Oh no! I just finished the first two episodes and I'm liking the show so far. I haven't read the books, so that's probably why. 

 

TV shows and movies not respecting (or more like ruining) the source material is one of my biggest pet peeves, too. I guess I'll read the Midnight, Texas series when the show is over then! 

 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

@lmi82,

That's the better way to do it! If you like the TV show, you will probably like the books.

I really like Charlaine Harris books, especially the paranormal ones.

I loved the  Harper Connelly series (starting with Grave Sight.)  Have you read the Southern Vampire, Sookie Stackhouse series?  If you like Midnight, Texas, you might want to look into those series too.  Midnight, Texas has characters from some of her other series in it, even her mystery series that aren't paranormal.  It's a fun touch for those of us who are fans and have read everything. (Guilty.)  

Enjoy the show!
