TV 🛡 Game of Thrones—BR's Best Moments: And now our rate has ended.

I need to finish something up, will be here in a bit...

UNTIL THEN, our Top 20 will be started off with one of the more iconic dialogue deliveries of the show. But which one? :bussy:

power Is power? chaos is a ladder?





We do love to shit on Dumb and Dumber a lot, and rightfully so, but it's easy to forget that they were truly talented at adapting GRRM's vast world into the medium of television at first. They used to display a strength in playing with given characters and scenarios as long as they were given a greater framework and guideline to hold onto.

This showstopper for example is entirely invented by them, yet, Cersei's extravagant power-flexing, putting Littlefinger back in his place, is not just purely fun to watch but also feels true to how these characters would act and speak. It's a great addition to the source material, fleshing out two characters the show had zoomed in on much more than the books did, and feels like something that truly did happen outside of GRRM's chapters. Even the simple but sharp one-liner is on point, having now grown into what is arguably one of the most iconic catchphrases the show has produced.


Points: 255
(Subby #16; Godrey #20; Penk #5; phaggot #13; Matt #10)


Game of Trivia: Penk really loves pushing up all these dialogue scenes. First Catelyn's hearting delivery, now this iconic smash. Penk (h)is Power, indeed. But he's not the only one who put this in his Top 10. Matt continues living up to his reputation as BR's most feminist voter. Love Godrey for his vital input, too.

I remember this being great but I didn’t remember enough to vote for it. I used the quote as a signature on several forums back in the day.

George RR Martin was inspired by this timeless classic

The final scene of the series demonstrates one of 'Game of Thrones' quite unique values: There aren't many works of visual fiction of this scale where simple pay-off could have been worked towards to for years and years and, as a consequence, result in a quite uncomplicated sequence such as this one feeling as grand, overwhelming and passionate a pay-off as possibly imaginable. Daenerys finally being able to face into the direction of her ultimate goal – her Seven Kingdoms - and looking into an unclear future is painted by the show as a huge achievement thanks to how we have followed her through so many of her previous, tedious and year-long efforts.

Moreover, as a closing scene to this fantasy epic, I couldn't imagine a better visual message to send than this uncertain, yet surprisingly hopeful glance into the future - one implied to be supported by the greatest and biggest forces all joining in inspiring unity towards the common goal of creating and leaving the world a better place.


Points: 259
(Ryan #17; Ridley #10; Allstar #18; bluth #4; Godrey #14)


Game of Trivia: I feel both bad about and inspired by bluth's persisting battle to give Daenerys, and her moments, the credit and due she deserves. But, unfortunately, this didn't seem quite as exciting to some other people, or maybe not as exciting as some of the rest of the show but on the other hand without his high placement this may only have landed at the 29th spot so his pursuits are slowly paying off, just like Daenerys' storyline was supposed to after this one. Let’s see what else bluth will have saved.

Ryan:
It's a bit bittersweet - it's a beautiful moment, but it's also the last scene we saw of Game of Thrones before its untimely cancellation!

Ridley: The real series finale of Game Of Thrones. :clap3:

bluth: One thing to forgive season five’s languid pace for was that it made the payoffs in season six so much better and earned. who knew that watching some people look to the horizon on a ship could be so great, but the six seasons of build up and anticipation is what made this so glorious to watch. shame they cancelled the show shortly after.

Godrey: This is Katy sailing back to the top of the Hot 100 with Never Really Over after being banished for two years by the Dua Lipas, Bebe Rexhas and Halseys of pop music.
