Game of Thrones (HBO)


#9185

ASoIaF is predicated on the notion that history repeats itself. So focusing on the Age of Heroes is a very odd choice to me because it’s basically a repeat of the world facing the White Walkers. Just this time we get to see more details of how they came about? Boring.


#9186

Ya why does every successful franchise go back and do prequels instead of just moving FORWARD for once?


#9187

Because the White Walkers are going to win at the end of next Season. It would be really boring to move forward after that.


#9188

A lot of prequels are about the immediate timeline before the events of the original series. This is more of a KOTOR-like move to go thousands of years before the series.

And I’m so in awe John Reynolds knows all the plot points in advance. Maybe he can spoil them for us?


#9189

My point, which was obvious, is that in broad strokes it’s essentially the same story.

#9191

I don’t see man vs undead listed?


#9192

It probably falls in between Man vs Nature and Man vs Man.

I just broke an orbital from rolling my eyes so hard.


#9195

GOT is gonna be HBO’s superhero franchise.


#9196

Yeah I’m sure the word ‘universe’ is being tossed around a lot.

Of course, there were TV universes long before there were movie universes!

The All in the Family O Verse:

All in the Family
The Jeffersons
Maude
Archie Bunker’s Place
Gloria

And then there’s that other one, something Trek?


#9197

Don’t forget Happy Days/Mork from Ork/Laverne&Shirley!


#9198

+Joanie Loves Chachi


#9199

The Tommy Westphall Universe?


#9200

There was even a Cheers O Verse. In addition to Cheers and Frasier there was very briefly a Nick Tortelli sitcom.


#9201

Wings is connected to that, too.


#9202

Really? Did characters from Cheers or Frasier show up on Wings? I don’t remember, honestly, and I watched pretty regularly, though I didn’t catch all the episodes.


#9203

Yeah. At least Frasier and Lilith showed up in one episode, but there may have been others, too.


#9204

The best things about Wings were Antonio the Italian cabbie and Lowell, the idiot savant airplane mechanic.
Crystal Bernard wasn’t too bad either, but for different reasons. :-)
