I think this is a whole lot more tasteful than releasing a dead man's private journals while actively fighting the release of a box set of his music which he made for people to listen to. Fuck Courtney.

@47 The scene in the book served a different purpose than the scene in the show. In the book Cercei is screwing Jaime to basically convince him to kill Tyrion. In the show this scene is clearly meant to show Jaime becoming fed up with Cercei's awful bullshit. He's done with the bitch now.
As for Drogo and Dany's scene, I think they made it more brutal in the show to maintain the audience's sense of horror and unsureness of Dany's fate. But that's just a guess.

Just because rape is a "plot devise" doesn't mean it's not a fairly common thing that happens in any society and as such has a place in many stories. The fact that anyone cares to boo-boo over it after a pregnant woman was shanked repeatedly in the belly last season is kind of hilarious. The real world is just as horrifying a place as any fictional world.

"you can be queen, but only after you are sold like cattle and completely demoralized"
That's a bullshit thing to say. Brienne is a strong, moral, kind and independent character from the beginning. Catelyn Stark was a good person before all her misfortune to (issues with Jon aside). Sansa and Arya are two sides to the same coin. A good obedient girl who does as she was told and was brought up to do, and a strong willed spitfire who defies all convention and attempts to control her.

Also Cercei deserved it. Yeah, I said it.

The Stevia/ricin Lydia connection is a good one, but Walt has absolutely nothing to gain whatsoever from do-ing her in, he'd be better served by giving her up.

Keeping it as an option for himself also makes sense, but there was a still shot of next weeks episode that supposedly shows him outside the shwartz' house, he could easily break in and put the ricin in their coffee, or milk or whatever.

Poor Huell.

@10
I like the cut of your jib.

@9
I would also watch that show.

Like a few others have said I feel like the Ricin is definitely for the Schwartzes, and the M60 is for the Nazis. When Jesse and Walt meet again it will not be pretty. I've always felt like if Walt died it would have to be at Jesse's hand, but that's a bit predictable.

Am I the only one who thinks Paltrow is completely plain-jane and not "hot" I mean she's "attractive" in a sterile kind of way i that she has a nice body and an unoffensive face, but she's not some great beauty. She's no Selma Heyek.
Sep 13, 2013 Stabs commented on Why Did Star Trek Into Darkness Suck?.
It sucked because there was zero character development. It sucked becacuse the entire spirit of the franchise has been crushed. It sucked because we want to see cool space shit and it ended with a fucking foot-chase on EARTH. It sucked because they completely forgot about the Klingons. It sucked because LENSE FLAIR.

"When Jesse goes crazy, Walt is like, "Gosh, guess he found out I poisoned the kid." Why would he jump right to that?"
No, Saul told him, you forget Saul called Walt immediately after Jesse left his office.

"He immediately went to, "Oh, god, Hank has it and now he knows everything." I find it hard to believe he would have even noticed it was missing.
Walt's got a very analytical mind. He knows Hank was acting funny, that was the biggest hint, they're family. He knows he started acting funny after he came out of the bathroom, and he probably realizes that other than the ricin in the electrical outlet that book is the only incriminating evidence he had in his house. He probably thought he was just being paranoid when he went and checked his car for the tracking device, but there you have it.

My friend received this anonymously in the office, and called us all in to speculate on what it could possibly be (it came with no indication of what it was or where it came from). I thought it might be some kind of baby papouse, with an extra hole for... belly button? None of us had the slightest clue.
Jul 24, 2013 Stabs commented on In Which Bruce Willis Is a Prick to Some Commercial Radio Bloke.
I actually had to ask Bruce a question for this movie as a part of my job. My boss later lamented that I was not "warned about Bruce" Mostly about his tendency for long pauses between statements, which often appear (to people like my trying desperately to get soundbites so WE can go home) to be periods at the end of sentences, reporters always feel badly when they realize they're cutting him off after one of his long pauses. But I asked him a question about his character in the movie, and he asked me if I'd seen it. I hadn't yet seen it, since it wasn't out yet,(and people like me only get to see it early if we're attending a junket), so I told him I was seeing it later and he gave me such a look of disappointment, a long one. It made the little girl inside me cry, to know Bruce Willis was disappointed in me. and he didn't answer my question, he was also pretty rude to the guy next to me as well. I find it weird that he was just as rude to this guy who HAD seen the movie and seemed quite enthusiastic about it. Maybe Bruce is going through some shit.

John Malkovitch on the other hand was lovely and gracious.
