I don't remember any conflict between Osha and the marsh kids that are on Bran's wall journey in the books. I'm thinking they added that conflict because absolutely nothing else happens. I remember it as being quite tedious.

The landing strip annoyed me. When the heck is pubic hair going to come back in style.
It would be if Lady Shaughten Kerleigh of Ladygarden (sigil: a beaver, rampant) had her way.

That's probably the most groanworthy thing I've ever posted. And that's saying something.

Thousands of years have gone by.

Evolution could have seen all the girls capable of sprouting a full pubal lawn, have gone to the weigh side unable to find a "husband", which means that all the children that are born are most likely to have naturally occurring landing strips.

Or

There was some Genegineer fetishist back in the day before man fell to barabrism who just said "No more Bush on my watch" and sliced off this and that from chromosones and atoms until woman kind foreverafter met his personal bald ideal.

No you're right, it could have just as easily been a lesbian Genegineer.

Why complain about that but not the fact that they have cleanly shaven legs and underarms? Why is this more unbelievable?

IIRC, there wasn't any conflict in the books, because Osha split off from Bran's group and took Rikken west, so that if anything happened to one group, it would increase the chances of there still being a male Stark heir alive in the other group. Can't remember if they were eventually headed for Riverrun or some other location with sympathetic Stark bannermen. Bran went to the wall with only Hodor and the Reeds. As of Book Five, neither Osha nor Rikken are seen again, unless I missed something.

It's all fantasy, isn't it, so I say bring on the talking merkins. And I assume Theon loses his dick?

Entire season feels a bit treading water, but still better than nearly everything else around.

Oh yes! I forgot about Rikken despite him being on screen.. and the marsh kids were with them from the beginning, not joining later so the conflict free time went on for a while before they split off. And yes I can't remember anything about them in Book 5. I wonder how book 6 is coming along

Because I like bush. And I don't care about legs and underarms. It's all about me.

And once again...

If Game of Thrones took place on Facebook - "The Bear and the Maiden Fair"

For me, I don't understand the importance of showing the maiming of Theon Greyjoy. I feel it's gratuitous. And, from what I understand about the medieval era, this kind of behavior would be frowned up on. It's one thing to do this to a peasant - who cares about a peasant - and another thing to do it to a noble.
Agreed- it's as boring as mud. They should have just had Theon completely disappear for a season- THAT would have been interesting.

Disappear and return in the shit shape he was in the books. And it takes you a while to recognize him and when you do you are deeply shocked.

Oh and the medieval era, pfft.. this is fantasy. They can do what they like.

He would've had to disappear for at least two seasons then. After that much time you don't even know whether you'll get the actor back. That's a risk I don't want them to take on someone who's as good as Alfie Allen (who's also a main cast member).

I thought that it was mean to bring in the girls with Theon, then I thought it was kind, and now I think it's practical because it's easier to cut it off when it's erect, but it isn't easier is it? It's more difficult and takes longer to cut through erect flesh, if he's actually going to cut all the way through, and not half way through so that it flaps about, which means that the inquisitor was being mean after all!

Oh no.

What if he wanted to cut up and down instead of side to side?

Pretty sure that most people here would not know the proper procedure for a functional castration. And the ones who do will likely not admit to it.
