I really wish this aired on Saturdays, so I could watch it Sundays.  As it is, it will probably be Friday by the time I get to watch it...

I wonder if the HBO Go leak will happen again.

I would imagine they would have tightened the screws after last time, but I don't really know how it happened so I guess it's possible.

Such is life in the digital age...

Frankly, I should probably rewatch the last episode of last season, because I barely recall what was going on.

Lol, I inserted sarcasm punctuation as you were responding ;).

But yes, I too need a refresh. I feel like the last episode is the one with the great intro music when Cersei blows the fuck out of the Faith-Militant.

Was that?  Man, I feel like I last watched the show something like 5 years ago.  Too much real-life in the past year, really.

Had to go to Wiki to jog my memory, but I recall what was up now.

If you haven't seen The Black Person's Guide to Game of Thrones, do yourself a favor.

You might enjoy this too: Game of Thrones: Libertarian Edition.

That being said, first episode continues the tradition of this show that not much happens, until at least the second...

Watched the show last night and not a whole lot went on, per usual of most first shows of any season. One development I liked is Samwell snatched the keys to the part of the library restricted to the Measters, where info on the white-walkers is. Also, Danerys landing at an abandoned Dragonstone, as a base of operations and her ancestral home, thought it was great.
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

Yeah, there were probably about 15 good minutes in there, interspersed with some really aimless dialogue and completely pointless scenes, one of which was so nonsensical I have a hard time imagining how Maisie Williams was not laughing at the cringe-worthy nature of it all (actually, it looked like she was about to the whole time).  Not to mention how implausible the whole set up was.  I guess in the last few years, the Lannister forces mellowed out a ton and the Riverlands are just a nice place to travel through...

I mean, I know the first episode is usually just pure set up, but this one seemed especially egregious.
