    With a new season around the corner (starting in 7 days), there's one question on every GoT's fan mind - which character is likelier to die next?
    This website applied machine learning algorithm to answer that question.

    I've seen several episodes online, but I don't have cable, so I haven't been following it. What I've seen was provocative. Would like to see more.

    Love the link! Totally agree with what episodes were the best and most suspenseful. If GoT starts becoming predictable, I'll be done with it.

    You're so right. It's really superbly written and directed. Glad you are enjoying it. Didn't know they had it at the library.

    We went ahead and subscribed to HBONow. Been watching after work. Am now in season 2. Joffrey is a sadist. My favorite character is the dwarf.

    I don't know. Not even sure it's hereditary. The whole show is filled with extreme cruelty, which makes me ponder its success. My son told me it is the most pirated show on the internet. Anyway, I started season five yesterday.

    As far as sadism goes, wait until you see what Ramsay Snow is capable of.

    Yeah, that guy might be the worst of them all. Most are capable of some form of cruelty. I'm half way through season five now. I've been on a marathon binge this weekend.

    After watching all available episodes--watching all the ways people are murdered in the show--I'm thinking which method of execution would be the most desirable and least desirable. Beheading seems to be the most merciful end, and flaying would be the worst ending, in my opinion. All others seem pretty painful or excessively gruesome.

    I remember mentioning this series in a thread years ago about fantasy novels people liked.

    That it has now become an immensely popular tv series means a few things....

    1. Y'all got the attention span of mayflies.
    2. No one reads books anymore.
    3. No one pays any attention to me.
    4. I understand quality before anyone else does.
    5. You weren't around back then.

    Don't get me started on South Park... because there's another psychological thread right there.

    3 sounds like a whine, and 4 pretty much proves it.

    I actually haven't watched a single episode of the show. I have read the books, several times and am avidly awaiting the next installment, which could mean it could be available in a few months to a few years [sigh]..

    So y'all shouldn't paint everyone with the same brush.

    That, right there, is proof that you know not of what you speak...

    Mormon episode. Best.. Episode.. EVEERRRR.. Although the Lord of the Rings episode is a close second. My preeeciouussss... Although Token Black's 'five midgets and thousand island dressing' line will go down in history as the best of all time..

    One does have to wonder at which point a meme, coming from someone who absolutely detests them as a response in a discussion forum, might not be the simplest and best response one might make to that.

    Would a description something alone the lines of a "slow shake of the head" really suffice, or do y'all need to have it pictorially represented?
