Re: Detailed Spoilers - Episode 4 - HBO leak

Well even if these spoiler reports are true - and we have no way of knowing that - it isn't really anything we didn't already glean from the next episode trailer.

Is the "Watchers" fansite network going to expand to include HBO's "Confederate" by Benioff and Weiss?

WatchersOnTheWall.com expanded to also run WestworldWatchers, another major show on HBO. It was just announced that Game of Thrones's own showrunners Benioff and Weiss are going to produce a new big show on HBO after Game of Thrones ends, called "Confederate". Will the "Watchers network" expand to i...

Re: Did Sansa's Rape Scene Really Merit the Controversy?

But the writers didn't call it a twist of fate. They never seem to acknowledge that Sansa even lost narrative agency. Going into Season 5, they kept insisting "this is the season that Sansa goes from pawn to player"....which is contradictory with your reading that it was a twist to show she's being ...

Looking for a Battle of the Bastards production interview...

Re: Ava DuVernay criticizes total lack of female directors on Game of Thrones (video)

I do agree that there should be more female directors overall. And I do get AD's point of view. However, I think that ship sailed with GOT after season 2 or 3 simply because with something like this it becomes about knowing this universe, the logistics, how this whole operations -- which is massive...

Re: Sansa? Really?

They reconceived the role to make it worthy of the actress's talents.
