    Come on. Brienne bested Jamie Lannister. Jamie Fucking Lannister himself. No chance Arya can defeat Brienne. No, no, no. It's 2019 and I'm still mad about it.

    Like most comments, I just want to say how much I appreciate your work on Dune the books and the upcoming film(s). You are my only source of news for this project. I am taking the opportunity to salute your shoutout to David Parkman whose work is just as equally meaningful to me. I watched the exposé before and it is very professionally done. Aslan himself is aware of David’s work because it has reached so many people. My opinion of Aslan has greatly diminished ever since I watched it. Keep up the good work and don’t fear for the show, « fear is the mind killer »😀

    Race swaps I can tolerate, as long as the character's race isn't specifically mentioned in the book and/or figures into the plot, and if the actor can carry the character's personality well. If they ever remade 2010: The Year We Made Contact, I'd LOVE to see Morgan Freeman as Floyd. If they did a movie of The Mote in God's Eye (YES PLEASE? WE CAN HAZ THIS?) I wouldn't mind a black Blaine or even a black Sally Fowler. But gender swaps? NO. DO NOT DO THIS. There is no reason for it except SJW feels and stupid political crap. Changing a character's gender has a much bigger impact on the plot and who that character is than changing their race. I could accept a black Kynes. I might even cheer it as a neat take on the character. But not a female Kynes. No. I would skip this movie.

    Better ending would’ve been is if while Daenerys is giving her speech, Jon walks towards her to kiss her and then stabs her. Drogon spits fire at Jon in front of everyone, doesn’t die then he says this epic line, “I am Aegon Targaryen, the true heir to the Iron Throne!”

    Absolutely LIVE all your videos. So happy you’re doing/have done my favorite SF books such as Dune and Hyperion. Can I make a recommendation for you to read and possibly put on your USwork show? It’s my 2nd favorite sci-fi book series (my favorite sci-fi book is Dune although I wasn’t a fan of the others). Alright here’s my recommendation- Peter F Hamilton “Commonwealth Saga” Series 1: Pandora’s Star Judas Unchained Series 2 The Dreaming Void The Temporal Void The Evolutionary Void I really think you’ll like this series! I’ve recommended it to other sci-fi lovers and have never heard of anyone who didn’t live these books. Just keep in mind it’s a space opera similar to Foundation or the Expanse series. Please let me know if you read!! Thanks for listening 😀.

    I think the strongest points in the casting are Paul, Jessica, the Baron, and Chani. All of them are SPOT ON. I'd have picked Edward James Olmos as Gurney. Now, if this movie had been made 15 years ago when Battlestar Galactica had come out, EJO is, in my opinion, the only person who looked as close to the book's description of Duke Leto AND had the acting chops for the role, as Jurgen Prochnow did in '84. Seriously, Prochnow was dead on, and I am having a very hard time thinking who would look and play as close to the role now. I can't really see Oscar Isaac. Momoa as Idaho? I didn't think so at first, but reading the description in this comment section...maybe. I'd rather see someone less muscular, more refined. Richard Armitage comes to mind, but he has the same problem: too muscular. Kyle MacLachlan could ALMOST do it...that'd be a hoot:P James Callis, maybe? Now, Momoa as Stillgar...THAT would be killer :D I'd like Jim Carter, the guy who played Carson in Downton Abbey, as Thufir. Charles Dance as the Emperor? Yes please. Whoever came up with that idea deserves a medal.

    I kinda felt Farad'n had more of a close teacher/student relationship with Jessica (maybe because I've only heard the audiobook); there never seemed to be any explicit lust between them. He definitely thought she was beautiful, but he came across as having the self-awareness and propriety to not cross that boundary given her history and was more excited at having a mentor that he could actually admire and sympathise with, despite the historical ties between their Houses.

    HBO probably wants to crank out as much GRRM stuff as they can while they still have so many assets, from sets and costumes/designs to CGI that they want to make use of before it degrades/becomes outdated. I fully expect to see assets reused throughout the various series they have lined up.

    George RR Martin has been getting into alot of old celtic and germanic stuff lately. The cover practically has a triskelion on it, and the work he did with From Software is said to be very celtic and germanic inspired.

    No interest in The Long Night / Blood Moon. Fire and Blood however, I'm interested. I could imagine it being an anthology based series, with each season being about a different period. I'd imagine it'd be pretty fast paced similar to parts of Tudors.

    This is a great, detailed and extensive explanation of parts of the Dune story and a wonderful debunking of the sjw drivel produced about this subject! I only have one question for the ''journalist'': How does ''race'' fit into this story, how can only Paul be the ''mighty whitey''' if *EVERYONE* in Dune has the same complexion? :) ''Rational man attacks journalist'': '' Journalist is a whiney, delusional, ideological follower of identity politics''.

  65. adarian

    GRRM is running scared of finishing his series after the backlash from season 8. He will never finish the ASOIAF as his own ending was received terribly and he will just keep churning out prequels and other side material and raking in the money till he dies. That is what I believe will happen even though I really want the series to continue.

    Great video and great channel. You have a very pleasant speaking voice, but one thing nags at me. You have a habit of pronouncing the short e vowel as a short i vowel. It may be part of a regional accent I'm not familiar with, but everything else about your speech is standard US English so it stands out to me. It is particularly obvious with the word 'men'. Other words to a lesser degree. Hopefully this is seen as constructive and not bashing. Some examples from the last five minutes of the video: 15:53 'min' rather than 'men' 16:09 'mintioned' rather than 'mentioned' 18:16 'intinded' rather than 'intended' 20:04 'plinty' rather than 'plenty' 20:16 'impathy' rather than 'empathy'

    What people don’t realise is that there’s a transaction between writers and readers/viewers, and that it to get a good payoff for the time they’ve invested in your works. Fucking off to go work on other projects and not finishing what you started is negligent and unappreciative. If you want people to stay interested in your series, then you have to keep working on and finish your series. It’s called the writers’ promise. The whole reason people don’t start reading books or watching a series until a few seasons have passed is because they don’t want to waste time investing in a series that the network will cancel or the writers won’t finish. George left Game of Thrones in the hands of some cronies, and that horrific last few seasons and ending will unfortunately, and most likely be the legacy everyone remembers. Other writers should learn and not make the same mistakes.
