Re: Game of Thrones 3.9 - "The Rains of Castamere" - Rate and discuss

Judged as a television show, it is certainly far better than the books.

Not sure if legit or not...

A plane on route to the San Francisco International Airport tonight had to make an emergency landing when passengers watching pirated versions of the HBO series Game of Thrones began hyperventilating, screaming hysterically, and violently damaging their tray tables. The situation turned more volatile when an airline stewardess unintentionally spoiled the ending of the episode for the captain, after which he stormed out of the cockpit shouting obscenities, forcing his co-pilot to land the plane on his own.
“I’ve never seen something like this before,” said one passenger on the flight. She was sitting next to one of the victims. “One minute, the guy next to me is just watching a show on his laptop, then all of the sudden, he starts shouting ‘No way! No F**king way!’” According to the witness, the man then slammed his laptop shut and violently kicked the chair in front of him. “He just wouldn’t stop screaming. He wouldn’t stop shouting cuss words.”

Re: Game of Thrones 3.9 - "The Rains of Castamere" - Rate and discuss

Honestly, I really hope that's not true (and it feels quite over the top). Not only is the overreaction absurd, it's embarrassing. Don't get me wrong, I get overly obsessed with shows, films, novels, and whatever else just as much (and more) as the next person, but this is ridiculous.

There is 0% chance of that story being true.

Yeah. A passenger throwing a fit big enough to force them to land the plane is one thing. The pilot is a whole other level of unrealism.

I would love that story to be true if only to confirm my suspicion that the human race has totally lost the plot.

Both Edmure and the Black Fish were off-screen when the massacre happened, so they are theoretically still around. The Starks may be largely decimated, but the Tullys are still in play.
Exactly. Whatever happened to Blackfish? Did he know?

We pay these people to create feelings inside us which we are too lazy to create through living our own lives better.

Of course when we think we are asking to have one set of emotions manifested and get a different set, it's not unlike picking up the wrong prescription from the chemist giving you the squirts when you really needed to be stopped up.

That is what I was going to say. One passenger raging is a possibility but any more than that it wold start to get suspicious and the pilot's behaviour confirms it is bullshit.

I have witness some of the reactions to Robb and Catelyn's deaths and I am beginning to ask myself if I am normal or not. I have never been anywhere near close to getting as upset as some people do about a fictional character's death - Not Ned, Rob or Catelyn Stark, not Daddy Winchester or other characters in Supernatural, not Gandalf nor Boromir, not Charlie Pace from Lost, not Jadzia nor Tasha Yar etc, etc

I did shed a tear or two when I read about Rafael Echavarren's death in the book Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors but he was a real life person.

Maybe, just maybe, if I had been alive in 1893 I might have been upset at Sherlock Holmes's death.

EDITED TO ADD - My son hasn't read the third book yet so he had no idea what would happen at the Red Wedding. His reaction was "Oh, fuck" but it never got stronger than that.

I cried when George Kirk died. But I was primed, so to speak. Years of Star Trek led me to that moment.

The only on screen death which really upset me was Adrianna's in Sopranos.

Oh and Tess D'Urberville's death gutted me the first time I read the book. But I was very young.

The Game of Thrones characters as seen on the show seem to be mostly shorthand for differing qualities. Steadfastness, arrogance, familial pride, sentiment, devotion.. I can't see them as real people and other than thinking Tyrion is extremely hot I don't find them people I relate to, or care about. The scene worked because it was very well done but on a personal note it was nothing to me. Obviously it has a lot of impact on others, I just don't find them very fleshed out in a relatable way, though they and the show sure do look good. I do feel as though as I'm looking through a window at everyone's great experience, while admiring it's prettiness.

Poor Ser Jorah. Everyone's so upset about the Starks that they're forgetting him being forever friend zoned.
He's been friendzoned from go, he just didn't realize it because Dany had nobody to show interest in until Romance Novel cover model guy showed up.
I wasn't being entirely serious. It's been obvious for a while that he's just going to get with Dany. I do love Iain Glen, I think he does great work. Dude's got an awesome voice and I loved that we saw him fighting a bit in this past episode. He really looks at home wielding a broadsword.
