Really IMDb?
19 May 2016 | by Psycho JugglerSee all my reviews

It is abundantly clear that IMDb is manipulating reviews and ratings. Look at the paid reviewers, reviewing? They only rate Game of Thrones 10 out of 10 offering us the same rating every week. However some of these reviewers are praised by IMDb itself with medals etc, proving the above point. Do these people even know what another show is, have they even seen anything else? So how is this show's episode a 10 out of 10 when every Game of Thrones episode is 10 out of 10? It is no wonder where some of this show's resources are being wasted; Pretentious manipulation. In other words how freaking bias and utter crap.

This episode was fraught with flaws from even a critical standpoint. The acting was poor in parts. The dialogue was poor in parts. The subtitles were appalling in parts, as well as containing simple speech mistakes. The scenes present had errors with their continuity from past scenes also having plot flaws, as well as shown errors.

One of the first scenes opened with Sansa's hair all over the place and no make up, upon her entering Castle Black. Right away as she meets her brother, no pause jumping to another different location, she has brushed her hair and has a face full of make-up, talking to her brother who took her immediately indoors for a chat. The Umbers and Karstraks are some of the biggest houses of Northern bannermen. They have offered an alliance to the Bastard, Boltons this season in the past episode. So please tell me just how Theon has walked across the north getting to the Iron Islands, when the Bastard has commented knowing where Sansa and Brienne have gone, and has used his hounds to track them to Castle Black, but he also has the larger Northern houses at his disposal? We know they are the larger houses of the Northern bannermen, outside of the Starks and the Boltons from when Rob Stark took them all to war. Why would the Bastard chance his luck, knowing what Osha would do, told by Theon, if it could have meant his death? Is not the Frey's a house that is located in the Riverlands, the house that killed Rob Stark? So why has Littlefinger commented saying that it's time to join the Frey? Why has the High Sparrow commented about sleeping on medieval couches? Why has Greyworm said jew hate us, not you, or whatever the unpronounceable tone he was speaking in? Why was the Bastard's letter written by an juvenile adolescent, it wasn't funny it was stupid? Why is Melisande walking about like that, and growling in every single different scene, it was just terribly bad acting. How come right behind the throne room where Dany sleeps in past seasonal episodes treating with Daario, Barristan and her advisers in her quarters; Have they now been turned into a whorehouse, by Tyrion who is sitting in that kind of chair? No it wasn't a separate room somewhere else, they walked from it right into the audience chamber throne room? Why would they lease the Queen's Pyramid to whores, if she is going to be returning? Where on that horizon is anywhere for the Dothraki to keep their horses, it was all mountains, rock, and sand seen for miles and miles into the distant horizon? How have Jorah and Daario walked across Sothyros? If the braziers have burning embers, they contain charcoal, not oil.

Regardless of those errors. This episode's duration was committed to subtitling, subtitling that was written by infants who might as well have been speaking in a baby language, it was gibberish. This language that is brand new and never heard of before, a language alien to this planet; Why did most of its use only contain obscenities? So tell me why have they invested formulating another brand new alien language, something else in fantasy that has never been heard of before, but than they go and beep the freaking beep out of the beeping beep out of it? Even the hostile Klingons had far better manners?

This show has obviously been manipulated by websites prompting fake reviews and fake ratings, but they might as well have been Hitler telling us what to watch and how we should watch it. With the internet spanning this globe it has only made it easier for fascists. Fascists who have burnt their books. It might as well be the death of culture? This episode should have been a 0 not the 10 given because it was some other cancer relief day?
