The Seven-Pointed Star #1 - 'Dragonstone' (7.1)

Digging Deep on the Season 7 Premier of HBO's Game of Thrones

Episode Notes

SPOILERS!!! FOR ALL PUBLISHED BOOKS IN #GRRM'S A Song of Ice and Fire AS WELL AS ALL TELEVISED EPISODES OF HBO'S *Game of Thrones...

Born amidst salt and smoke... Just off the Long Island Expressway... And beneath a bleeding star...

This week, #TPTWP grab their shovels and dig deep into the Game of Thrones Season 7 premier, 'Dragonstone.' They dig like really deep, like really really deep, like all the way to China deep.

HBO's highest rated show ever returns for an abridged penultimate season and The Princes That Were Promised are all over it like sand on a beach... or jagged rocks and needles on a polluted beach.

This Analysis is called 'The Seven-Pointed Star' because #TPTWP choose the 7 most important parts of this episode and discuss them to death. But no worries if you think we should have discussed something that we didn't, we will cover anything else of relevance in the 'Lord of Light-ning Round.'

The Princes That Were Promised are John and SeannieWan. Every week they tear apart Westeros and sift through the pieces to bring their Leal and Loyal Subjects the history of the Realm and The Known World from both George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones.

The Watchers On The Couch:Season 7 Titles

Chatting the Crap Out of the Revealed Titles of the First Three Episodes

Episode Notes

SPOILERS!!! FOR ALL PUBLISHED BOOKS IN #GRRM'S A Song of Ice and Fire AS WELL AS ALL TELEVISED EPISODES OF HBO'S *Game of Thrones...

Born amidst salt and smoke... Just off the Long Island Expressway... And beneath a bleeding star...

The Princes That Were Promised turn all their attention and focus to the penultimum Season of HBO's Game of Thrones. It is upon us. The next 7 Weeks will be a frenzy of watching, reviewing, observing, recording, editing and posting for John and SeannieWan. #TPTWP are up to the task and ready to interpret the world's most watched television program for you!

It is times like these that seperates the Podcasting Royalty from the Podcasting Commoners. Consider The Princes That Were Promised as Podcasting Royalty and the literally 100's of 1,000's of podcasts based on GoT that multiply like cockroaches as the Podcasting Commoner or, if you prefer, the Podcasting Amateurs, or, if appropriate, the Podcasting 'B' Squad. We can sit here all day long and come up with demeaning titles for the 130,399 podcasts about Game of Thrones that you can find on any podcast server, but we won't. Because it's mean. And it is disrespectful to The Princes That Were Promised because they respect anyone and everyone that put a strong effort into making this medium work for them. That said, if you know someone in the market for a podcast that covers HBO's Game of Thrones, point them in this direction.

Stick with The Princes That Were Promised during Season 7 to satisfy you need for chat and discussion about the program that will be consuming your life for the next two months.

The Princes That Were Promised are John and SeannieWan. Every week they tear apart Westeros and sift through the pieces to bring their Leal and Loyal Subjects the history of the Realm and The Known World from both George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones.

The Watchers On The Couch Official Rewatch:Season 6

Thinking Back a Year and Rewatching What We Thought We Remembered

Episode Notes

SPOILERS!!! FOR ALL PUBLISHED BOOKS IN #GRRM'S A Song of Ice and Fire AS WELL AS ALL TELEVISED EPISODES OF HBO'S *Game of Thrones...

Born amidst salt and smoke... Just off the Long Island Expressway... And beneath a bleeding star...

This week, #TPTWP begin the end of their The Watchers On The Couch *Official Rewatch of HBO's* Game of Thrones.

It's the most popular television series since the end of the Three-Available-Channels Era... maybe. A lot of people watched Friends, although John and SeannieWan did not.
But #TPTWP is a lot like NBC's Friends, SeannieWan is like Ross or one of the other ones and John is also like Ross or one of the other ones and if there were any women on the show they'd be like the chick from the Bruce Springsteen video where he pulls her from the crowd and they dance on stage. Ah... the 1980's... everything was all good.

Season 6 may quite possibly be David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' masterpiece, depending on how they land this sucker. It seems the further they get from the source material, which no longer exists so they are as far away as possible, the better they get.

Also, John compares Arya Stark's decision-making to Goodfellas and it makes alot more sense than it should.

The Princes That Were Promised are John and SeannieWan. Every week they tear apart Westeros and sift through the pieces to bring their Leal and Loyal Subjects the history of the Realm and The Known World from both George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones.

The Status Quo Characters

The Protagonist

The Antagonist
