The beauty of it is HBO may be the only company that doesn't give a shit about that, as they don't even have a limit on the number of screens being with one account (like netflix and hulu Evil or Very Mad) All you have to do is ask, and I'll send it to you via messages Smile

I don't think I do enjoy watching the show. I used to, but something changed. I like to think it was the show that changed, but who knows.  Shrugging

I mean I never enjoyed all of it. The ridiculous sex scenes which are just dripping in pandering-sauce. Sex-workers auditioning for a man as he talks about his ambitions or whatever was really silly. 

But there was lots of stuff that I thought was really good. I too hope that the Hound returns, for he was one of the best characters in his time I think. Brienne was a dick to kill him. Should have been the other way round!

Oh hey here's something positive, positively hilarious!

Game of Thrones, Well Done

Well, let me work through season 5 first.  I've already taught a coworker how to fill up drinks in 7-11, suck some down, then top it off, so I've entered the seamy zone as it is. Embarassed It's only your tender age that gives me qualms.

Pretty shy, a little greasy. Incredibly impressed by Pan's Labyrinth.

well yeah, I don't enjoy all of it either. there are some things I think are just pandering to the front/back bottom brigade. Which is fair enough, HBO had to draw in the punters in the first season, make it attractive to watch, hence the boobies, HBO had enormous competition from computer games which were giving people what they wanted, ie dragons n naked hot chicks so it had to carve out its patch and it did it by adding characters we could learn to care for, real people not cgi, so it became a powerful roller coaster, obviously people still expect boobies so they get them out at regular intervals, there is never a very good reason to do this so they have to make up plausible-ish scenarios in brothels. basically the show has stayed faithful to its remit, in season one we got Ros doing strange things to another prozzie in front of Little Finger, nobody seemed to mind, its all good fun imo. and its not Shakespeare so who gives a shit anyway. its entertainment at its finest. blood and mud from the comfort of our sofas. with Dragons! Razz

I would say but I'm afraid I might shock halfy's sense of propriety too much. Sofa

I was ramming little old ladies with shopping carts. Don't judge me, I've progressed.

Laughing   I hesitate to ask.

At 15 I was a sullen loner with only a ginger pussy for a friend. Don't ask, I have progressed.

Now I have 10 pussies. Razz cat

that was one hell of an emotional roller coaster. One minute I was having a swoon with Dany and Jorah, next minute having a giggle with Brienne and Tormund next minute my heart was ripped out with Bran. flipping heck! Shocked

I agree about the King Moot. Euron Greyjoy was a disappointment, he had about 5 followers at the end. Rolling Eyes
