Getting ready to start watching it tonight, very excited, have been waiting for this one!

And after a month or so of intermittent binge watching, my husband and I got through ALL of GOT and finally caught up in time to watch the new episode last Sunday! Yay!

Finished it last night and loved it. I was worried I wouldn't be able to follow everything because I haven't seen Iron Fist, but they made it pretty easy to follow along.

Mostly, I was happy to see Jessica Jones. She's my favorite, and she had some pretty good quips.

Enjoyed the first episode... hoping to catch more tonight. Iron Fist was our hold up, we had one episode left before we ran out of steam months ago, and seemed worth finishing it up first. Iron Fist wasn't near as good as the other three, and seems even stranger now that we've watched GOT (Iron Fist is played by the same actor that was Ser Loras). So nice to see Jessica Jones again, it seems like it's been a long time! I'm really stoked about the Punisher this fall, his stint in Daredevil definitely bodes well for his own series.

:lol: :lol: I did not know Iron Fist and Ser Loras are/were played by the same actor. Everyone told me to skip Iron Fist, that it's not good. I'm kinda glad I didn't watch because he sorta annoyed me in Defenders. I did, however, like Colleen Wing... who is played by an actor on GoT, too (she is/was one of the Sand Snakes).

Colleen Wing is awesome, as were most of the other characters in Iron Fist come to think of it... if it wasn't for the petulant whiny excuse for a hero, lol, it might have been a much better show! Gah... that was her in GOT? I thought she looked familiar!

A little over six hours to the season finale of Game of Thrones, and I am bouncing between eager anticipation and unhappy dread. The latter because, once this evening's episode is over, we will have to wait at least a year (or more? :() to see what happens next.
Oh, and also envy...because the way the characters have been zipping around the continent, Westeros clearly has an efficient high-speed rail system. And we don't. :P

We're getting ready to watch GoT soon... made a pot o' chili so dinner's taken care of.

Finished Defenders... loved it, especially since Iron Fist was not NEAR as annoying as he was in his own show (you have been warned).

I know nobody else on here watches Twin Peaks but that was the most joy one hour of... any media... has ever given me. I can't wait to see the ending but I'm going to be so sad when it's over. It's just so beautiful and humanistic and badly needed right now.

Twin Peaks, like so many of the MCU series, is shown only on a media platform that doesn't work for me.
I've read good/intriguing things about TP, so I'm glad someone gets to enjoy it.

I'm still basking in the afterglow of Game Of Thrones' season finale. It gave us better character developments than I'd been seeing this season, so Yay character depth.
And all those deaths that articles were predicting, as though there was going to be Red Wedding-style carnage...?

SPOILERS follow, so hide your eyes.

No carnage. Just one, very satisfying demise. :twisted:
Well, maybe 'no carnage' isn't quite accurate. There was the very spectacular fall of what one could call a major character at the end.
I don't think I can wait a whole year.

SPOILER-ish.....

From a practical weapons viewpoint...why the heck hasn't anyone thought of using dragonglass shards as arrow points?
The World of Westeros has many examples of archers in both Westerosi armies and mounted Dothraki. It has to be easier to make small arrow points, especially since the shards don't have to be perfect; they just have to slightly penetrate the wights on any part of their body to 'kill' them.
And your archers can wipe out masses of the dead from a distance. Instead of wading waist-deep into waves of wights with those short knives, send waves of arrows at them. :roll:
If I were Dany, I'd mount the best archer I could find behind me on Drogon, with saddlebags of dragonglass arrows. We could go White Walker hunting from a safe distance.

I'll watch this eventually... the original is one of my top 5-10 shows of all time.

I cheered when the person was killed. About damned time.

Now I'm starting on Big Little Lies.

MORE SPOILERS

why didn't Jamie just kill cersei during their exchange?
hey dany see that teeny grp of walkers up on that hill not fighting us? turn drogon just a bit and scorch em eh?

There's been some pretty iffy writing as far as practicality goes, but I guess then the series would be long over with no action :lol: rational thinking isn't very interesting.

and then there's sam who wins with the "??? how did you use this limitless knowledge to cure jorah??" by being the cheeky fellow we all would have been. that was like a deliberate "flaw" in the writing just so we could get that bone thrown to us and i approve.

Maybe because that Mountain of a guard, the not-exactly-alive former Gregor Clegane, was hovering nearby? :P
Pretty sure Jaime would have been in two pieces by the time he had his sword half-drawn. And even if he had been real quick (perhaps with a hidden dagger?) with the murder, he still would have been messily dead seconds later.
Even if Jaime were ready to kill Cersei (and die himself), I don't think he could kill her unborn child. HIS unborn child. :shock:
