Just finished episode 9 of season 6 and will watch episode 10 tonight. Had forgotten how friggin' good this series is and am so looking forward to tomorrow's series 7 premier. 

 

Anybody else prepping by watching some of the previous episodes?

Comcast (Xfinity) just had a free week of HBO but I watched Westworld. Not nearly as good. Sorry but Evan Rachel Wood and Thandie Newton can't compare to Emilia Clarke nude but thanks to them both for the effort.

 

I have to wait for Netflix to have season 7 out on DVD. I can't justify paying for a channel I watch one hour a week.

Westworld is good and if it holds up will probably be the next HBO cash-cow once Thrones finishes it's run. And I hear you about justifying paying for HBO to only watch it for a specific show. In that same sense though it's exactly what we do with cable, satellite etc

Amen to the latter brother!

 

This idea that you have to pay for 90% that you don't want to get the 10% you do want .... sorry we aren't talking about health care bills.

Yeah, I finally just cut the cord.  I still get Netflix and Amazon Prime but no more TV and I don't really miss it.  The $135/mo. saved comes in handy ;)

When I am in the Philippines I get one of the video shops to download a whole season of my favourite TV shows onto my portable hard-drive. The cost is around 50 baht for a years worth while Downloading a movie is about 35 baht. I used to buy a lot of copy DVD in Pattaya but I dont bother now.

This might be the best thing on tv ever. Personal opinion of course.

Over the last two weeks I've binged watched the whole series.......(9 hrs of series 4 in one day) finishing the lot yesterday. Caught episode 1 series 7 just now. 

 

Great entertainment ...........I cheered on every punch in Ramsey's face after 'The battle of the bastards'

 

I never get so involved.......

 

One question...What do American's make of the Northern English accents?

Just as we English sing with American accents 97% of the time.........All the cast of GOT seem to be English and speak either BBC English or the Northern variety.

Perhaps you got used to it in Downton Abbey?

Not talking specifically about GOT and can only speak for my experiences but I've known a few here who've given up on British shows when the accent gets to 'thick'. Shame too because lots of good stuff and over the years I've gotten pretty good  at 'hearing' what's being said. 'Cept Spud from Trainspotting and yes, I know, Scottish. :D 

 

Directly to your questions......nobody I know nor have read comments from says anything about the actors way of speaking. What's a "Downtown Abby"? Is it like Monty Python.... :D

I just add subtitles to the video. For one thing, it helps me spell some of the names, both people and places. They're usually available the day after broadcast on addic7ed.com (sp?).
The first episode started off very well and bodes well for the writers advancing the plot into unwritten territory.
I'm starting to think "who needs GRRM anymore. The lazy coot is useless.
