This picture is definite fap material. Thanx for posting.
This is really the what's wrong with the GOT debacle-what's the point? Good people get fucked over? They can become bad? Bad people are rarely punished? Innocents suffer in wars? Things don't always work out for the best? I don't need a schlocky sci-fi tits and ass series of novels and I didn't need to watch a television series over nine years to tell me that.
Nigga, what kind of redneck bubba gump wannabe macho man bullshit are you talking about? You think I'm mad that the show has nihilistic themes? Do you know how many good shows, such as The Wire, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Sons Of Anarchy, the Shield, deal with nihilism, and yet don't have horrible OOC writing like GOT?
TV is escapism, so is most fiction. Maybe if the Fat Man served in Vietnam and D&Dd were forced to go to Iraq we wouldn't have had this gratuitous war is hell bullshit/shit is fucked up garbage shoved at us in the most plebeian manner.
LOL, wut? You talk about plebs, yet you also talk about serving in Nam/Iraq, both pointless wars that plebs were forced to fight in. If you don't like fiction and find it too immature, and think that war will make you the manly man you want to be, go join the military and get your head blown off by a Desert Mormon, and leave the rest of us plebs here to live and criticize bad TV in peace.
In fairness, the Unsullied are one of the most exceptional things ever put to paper in the entirety of the fantasy genre, doubly so for a story with any pretensions of realism. Add to that the fact that George "I don't like good guys and bad guys" Martin made the Masters so cartoonishly evil that I'm actually insulting many of the complex, nuanced cartoon villains by comparing them to the Masters. For me, trying to slot them into any kind of realistic scenario just returns a massive DOES NOT COMPUTE.
I always wondered about the Unsullied: Wouldn't castrating them as boys destroy testosterone production, thus ensuring that they never gained muscle mass and stayed twinks their whole lives? I can't imagine an army of twinks being effective
