    Game of Thrones Season 8

    Posts like this make me wish I was a lot more intelligent haha. I love the show - will probably rewatch again soon - but I definitely haven't picked up on half of the stuff you mention just in this one scene.

    Yes and no, there are definitely a lot of very interesting story arcs and the series gets better as it goes. with that said, the characters and their development throughout the series (along with it being a very interesting time in history IMO) are why I loved that show so much. I was into it from the first episode so it's possible you might just not enjoy that kind of series. I will say the show is absolutely hilarious at times and this was more apparent than it was during the original run when I rewatched it earlier this year. EDIT: I was hooked from the beginning all the way through the end but @Bacon probably summed it up better than I did.

    This take is madness!

    I really don't think the majority of people have an issue with the actual plot points and/or whatever the end game is going to be. The problem is it really seems they became bored with the project the past few seasons and, if that was the case, should have handed over the show to someone else to properly finish over another full season or two. Going from the first 4-5 seasons to the last few is extremely jarring - almost like reading full novels for 75% of the series and then inexplicably switching to cliff notes to finish.
  5. Yeah, I kind of let him off the hook since he saved their asses a ton in OT but he definitely let in a few he probably shouldn't have last night. Also, that was the other thing I meant to include - the power play unit being a -1 last night was just ridiculous and probably the biggest single reason for the loss.
  6. Hard to say it was old legs when several of the older guys were the biggest contributors in the series. It's ridiculously hard to go back to back so all I can do now is hope they get some extra rest with the longer summer and GMBM can figure out a way to tweak the roster a bit in a way that can help them contend again next Spring. The biggest thing that killed them in the series was the secondary scoring from last year completely dried up. It's kind of ridiculous to get that production from Ovechkin and Backstrom and not be able to escape the first round.
  7. Didn't they let up 4 on that PP?
  8. Complete lack of remorse as well.
  9. Hunter didn't make it any further than the 2009, 2015, 2016, or 2017 teams - which all lost very competitive second-round series.
  10. Let's be honest, the power play is almost worse than even strength right now. They were very fortunate it was basically a 5v3 due to a broken stick or the Caps probably wouldn't have scored a single goal last night.
  11. I'm used to the Caps making sure every series (except the SCF) goes 6-7 games, so normally I wouldn't be too concerned. However, the loss of Oshie combined with only scoring 1 goal in 2 full games has me a lot more worried than I'd be otherwise. The play on the ice looks pathetic at times and I'm not sure if it is due to guys nursing injuries or what but hopefully the home crowd can get them going again.
  12. I can't help but be disheartened by the precedent this will set for long after the current POTUS leaves the White House. Basically, you can do whatever the hell you want and be as corrupt as you want - just make sure your political party controls at least one branch of government so you can't be kicked out of office or face consequences for your actions.
  13. The bar is strictly based on the letter next to the President's name and that much has to be obvious even to some of the trolls currently posting in this thread.
  14. I think the story I heard that made the most sense for how everything transpired last year was something like this: - Management had started to lose confidence in Trotz after they failed to beat Pittsburgh again in the 2017 playoffs and had identified Reirden as the coach-in-waiting when Trotz's contract expired - It became obvious to Trotz that he was essentially a dead man walking and that there would be no plans to offer him a contract extension - The team wasn't playing particularly well and it looked as if missing the playoffs was a possibility so it was planned that Trotz would be fired when the team returned from a West Coast trip in early March - The Caps began to turn it around in the last game of that trip when they won in San Jose for the first time in something like 25 years, so they shelved the idea of firing him The rest is history but I don't think Trotz had any intention of coming back after he felt disrespected by management/ownership and I can't say that I blame him. GMBM has a ridiculously high batting average so hopefully this another one where he made the right decision and Reirden is the coach for a long time.
