Definitely fair enough! Do not mean to be argumentative about this

Does the Philly Zoo have lions or tigers, particularly ones who haven't been fed in a while? There's your solution.

I grew up in the Northeast so I've seen these two kinds. They're not going to have fun in jail if they make it there. In that setting they're bottom of the food chain types. Killing four people means nothing to those people when you're a rich white kid from the suburbs who killed other kids from the suburbs that weren't threatening really at all. Even the white gangs in there will laugh at these two clowns.

Yeah, I grew up here as well and while I don't know them, I'm only a few years older and apparently I have a few mutual friends with the monster on facebook, which sickens me. I agree with everything you said and I hope those *******s get what the deserve in jail.

I think I saw on facebook that a 5th kid that was missing from Bensalem/Bristol has also been tied to them, but I'm not sure how accurate that is.

Yeah I'm older than these kids by like 5-6 years & I don't live there anymore but when I did it was in the Mayfair section. But I got some family members of their age that know of the two kids. Basically said they were weird as **** & try hards.

That's what I've heard as well but who really knows there's been so many rumors out there so far. At the same time it wouldn't surprise me though.

Someone I know graduated with Cosmo at HGP said he was a guy at school you didnt want to mess with. Was involved with drugs and admitted to the psychiatric ward after high school. Have heard multiple theories as well.

Just watched the movie The Lost City of Z and kept thinking the lead actor looked familiar. It was Charlie Hunnam who played Jax in Sons of Anarchy.
I didn't know he was English.

Hate to be that guy, but I was bored.

The show after season 4 no longer has the magic it did when they could more closely follow GRRM

Kind of a shame. This could have been the best show ever if the books were all done first

Last season was probably the best one. Easily had the most exciting moments. What you watching? Lol.

It was definitely slow moving, but it was a development episode.

I don't agree at all. Season 5 and beyond mostly played like less skilled writers doing a GRRM impression. Which is what it is. Big battles and excitement like the battle of the ******** is not what made this story great IMO. It was the masterful story telling.

Season 6 was better than 5 I would say.

This comes off more negative than I mean it. I still like the show a lot. But it's definitely lost what made it truly great. It's more of a spectacle now

Saw episode, liked it, not loved it. The ending sequence, lame. For so many reasons, to have the Queen of Dragons end the episode, "Shall we begin?" That''s weak writing I think Bring back Stevens is referring too. GRRM would never write a line like that. And the situation in the north with Jon and Sansa- lame. I want to like Jon, but his emo a$$ is getting tiresome.

Feelings, rumble ramble /rant.


Show would'very been so much better had the book series been completed first.

Yep, exactly. The long cinematic scenes like dragonstone arrival, while cool, has become over abundant. The show now is relying on cinematic/artful scenes, and to me, that's losing what really made it so great. Having a few minutes long scene like that with a cliche line as the big episode closer like that to me says it all

The dialogue in general for the most part feels dumbed down as well.

You guys are all touching on it but it's apparent which parts of the show are from the source material and what isn't. Still a very good show, but I'll always think about "what could have been" when(if) the books are (ever) completed.

1st episode was fine as a setup for what is to come. Beginning was cool with the Frey's getting decimated. Ending was a bit corny...I still enjoy the show overall regardless of some slow episodes.

The episode sort of felt like a mixture between "what happened last week", and a trailer.

It was the definition of a building episode. It helps establish things, but not much happens.
