I agree, it's too convoluted with multiple story lines. And it's not the fault of the actors; I feel they've all done great with their roles, but the story feels so needlessly complex that they should have reduced the main characters by one or two.
Jon's sword is Longclaw. Ice was melted down to make Oathkeeper and Widow's Wail. I was hoping Ice would be reforged towards the end of the story, but Widow's Wail was buried with Joffery, so the little bastard has made life miserable even from beyond the grave.
So, what they're trying to say is there is no reason to watch NBC anymore. Btw, there's a reason why Heroes didn't last over 4 seasons. It nosedived after the first.
AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! NBC is run by a battalian of morons. They pit Community up against American Idol, then Big Bang Theory, then pair it up with terrible sitcoms such as Outsourced and Perfect Couples, and then they wonder why they are hemorrhaging viewers? They should have put it on before the Office when it first started or put it on Wednesday during the half hour before South Park comes on to catch those viewers before they change the channel. Oh wait, they were too busy f-ing up the Tonight Show disasterbacle with Conan and Leno to notice how the hell to develop shows. Michael Scott's gone, Seinfeld's not coming back, and Friends is dead. NBC has successfully lost their strongest night of programming.
I love this show so damn much. Evil Troy and Evil Aaaabed!!!
So happy it's back. To be honest, the episode kinda hit home for me because I have a friend who is in that alcohol matrix and I feel like Kyle did whenever I see him nowadays. But I thought using the Matrix was a genious move, simply because parodies have worn that story angle so far down that it was the perfect vehicle for Stan to examine how crappy life is. Again, I've missed South Park so much and if this episode is any indication, I feel it's gonna be a strong run (Season 11 strong).
A good start...
Alan Seeger, of course Pycelle is "GRAND" maester. Informally, he is known simply as Maester Pycelle. Seriously, don't be THAT guy.
The old guy visiting Roz was Maester Pycelle, the oldest member of the small council. You could tell by the chains around his neck. And seven hells, could they make his nightie A BIT thicker?
Still, I don't want anyone who has read the books spoiling the rest of the season. The same thing about "Shae being the most significant person in Tyrion's life." I haven't seen that yet and have not had a chance to read it yet, so if you've read the book and are reviewing the episode, please do not go past where they are in the series.
