They were literally there one week and gone the next. I had bought a couple pairs of LED reading glasses as impulse X-mas gifts that didn't work and wanted to return them. When I got there, the freakin' place was empty.

I think the same thing happened with "Borders" as well. All the big box stores are going under, thanks to Amazon I presume. Soon, it will be "back to the future", with only small independent bookstores left, ones with a stable & loyal, albeit aging, clientelle.
The main reason I mentioned the possibility of B&N closing (aside from prevailing retail trends) is because I just came across this article the other day (from October): How Barnes & Noble, the Last Big Bookstore, Fell to Amazon

Fortunately, the independents are making a comeback as per this CBS News story from November: Small bookstores are booming after nearly being wiped out

Barnes and Noble has just been terrible in my few experiences with them over the years, and it's no wonder they are going out of business. When I bought my Song of Fire and Ice boxed set, I bought another book at the same time. They shipped separately from the same location on the same date, costing B&N more in shipping costs (the single book came in a box as well).

Several years ago, I won a Nook eReader at a holiday party drawing a couple weeks after I had purchased a Kindle Fire. I went to the same store the Nook had been purchased at with a gift receipt to return it just a few days after it had been purchased during the holiday season (when store return policies are usually the most lax). The manager would only give me store credit, not a cash refund even though the item clearly wasn't opened.

Then last fall, I went to the same B&N store to buy a popular new release book, but they wouldn't give me the current online price in store, even after talking to the manager. The website that morning wouldn't let me buy it online for pickup at that price either. But a day or two later, it did.

Say what you want about the evils of Amazon pushing other retailers out of business, but I have never come away with a customer support issue with them unhappy, usually getting more than I expected.

Hey Keep, well, I have some problems with understanding/hearing 60% of the
shows I watch and have to turn on closed captioning .......... I have a decent
receiver, speakers also.... I don't have problems hearing what news casters
say ... only when it comes to shows...

Seems like way to much music, sound effects over powering dialogue ......

This also happens even using just the tv...... just bad mixing of sound I guess..

Season 3 is horrible so far!
Sorry if this has been beat to death already.

Never had a problem with any of the GoT epi's since day one. The 5.1 audio from HBO Go has been spot on streamed via the ATV thru a Yamaha receiver. In fact, we're re-watching the epi's now to bring us back up so speed before the final season. No audio issues at all.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.

Thanks Otto, and Joe
This is weird, I have no other issues anywhere close to this disparity.

It will be worth the wait. They could have an episode dedicated to these characters riding horses and just talking and I would love it. Something about these characters, we are totally into them and love them. Excellent acting, cast, direction, everything. They are so enjoyable to watch on the screen.

EW releases some pretty great photos of the cast, some look pretty cool and some are really gorgeous. Saving a ton of these for a wallpaper slideshow for sure!

Not as long as some hoped or thought:


HBO has posted the exact length of the first two episodes of Game of Thrones final season.


The network has updated its schedule (as first spottedthis link opens in a new tab by Winter is Coming) to reveal the season 8 series premiere on Sunday, April 14 will be precisely 54 minutes. The second episode on April 21 will be 58 minutes.

HBO updated their schedule to include the length for all the Season 8 episodes...the rumors that every episode would be 'feature film length' was just wishful thinking from fans...I am surprised that the big battle episode that's been hyped up for months is 'only' 60 minutes...

Episode 801: 54 minutes
Episode 802: 58 minutes
Episode 803: 60 minutes
Episode 804: 78 minutes
Episode 805: 80 minutes
Episode 806: 80 minutes

Yeah, that's disappointing to see. They've done such a great job so far that I'll take it on faith that they felt it only needed to be 60 minutes.

HBO and the showrunners have now made it 'officially' official...runtimes are exactly the same as previously reported with 1 major and welcome change...the big battle episode is now no longer 60 minutes but 82 minutes...much better in my opinion

Episode 1 (April 14): 54 minutes

Episode 3 (April 28): 82 minutes

Episode 4 (May 5): 78 minutes

I think I'd prefer if it stayed at 60 minutes, honestly. This show has had a couple of amazing battle sequences with Blackwater and the Battle of the Bastards, but many of the other attempts to live up to that standard (especially those that involve the White Walkers) have devolved into kind of a slog with lots of little indistinguishable CGI men swinging swords at other CGI crap. My eyes glazed over during Hardhome and the White Walker attack on the magical tree of life.

YMMV.

what makes this battle special is that it's one long action sequence...no cuts away to some other non-battle scene...Lord of the Rings: Two Towers Battle of Helm's Deep held the previous record for longest sustained action sequence ever made for television or film at around 40 minutes...so I'm sure it'll surpass anything ever seen on television and right up there with anything seen on film

Yeah, that's exactly the sort of thing I'm talking about and doesn't appeal to me at all.

$12.71 per season is a steal of a price but at this point anyone that doesn't own the previous seasons should just wait for the Complete Box-Set

I plan to use the included streaming code, then resell the disc set for ~$95 when the price goes back up

(I am one of the few round these parts to not have watched any episodes yet!)

I tend to price BluRay's at ~$5/disc, and this price beats that, i.e. it would cost more than $5 in time and materials to "back up" a BluRay- rip complete with menus, burn to a blank and/or store on a multi-TB server and/or re-encode.

I bought the S1 - S6 BD boxset for my wife a couple of years ago. So I'll be on the hook for all of S7 (or is it S7 & S8?) when it's all finished up.

Although by that time I'll probably have made the jump to 4K, so I'll probably end up buying the whole shebang that way.

I've stated previously and must reiterate .. I will hold out for the ::

"Red Keep Castle Mock Up Boxed Set, the Limited Edition of 1000 That Contains :: 300 Hours of Behind the Scenes and Cast Interviews / 45 Minutes Of Never Before Seen Footage / An 1" Square Cloth Piece Taken from Daenerys Targaryen's Wedding Dress from the Dothraki Wedding with Certificate Signed by Emilia Clarke, a full size Replica of the Hand of the King Pin and a Surprise Gift Only Available in This Set .."

Hopefully, I can be quick enough to score at least two, and sell the other for 10x what I paid for it .. I monitor HBO.com and joined their email alert list so that I can get a Heads Up ASAP ..

There will, of course, be "other", lower end Boxed Sets ..

Yeah I don't think they need to try to match or exceed the big scenes from movies with 9-figure budgets.


I think they show enough of the battles that the show isn't just about action set pieces.

It is a contrast though from say about 10 years ago on HBO when in "Rome" they got to the Battle of Actium and they showed some brief montages but then they cut right away to the aftermath and characters reacting to it. They h ad a huge budget for Rome already without even attempting to depict big battles and one of the reason they canceled that show after 2 seasons was the production costs.

It'll be interesting to see if they give the sequels as big a budget right away or wait to see if one or more of them become huge hits first.

I agree that the battles are not the most amazing thing about the show- the characters and story are...I've always said that even without dragons this show/books would still have been amazing...the journey the characters have taken and how they're grown in 8 seasons has been masterful...the problem with Season 7 was that for the first time you could tell that they were going off-book...everything felt rushed and the season was more about million dollar special effects action sequences versus a cool story + cool action that supports the story...the writing and dialogue were not up to their usual standards (instead of A+ it was B+)...I also thought Littlefinger deserved a way better death

that being said I think the showrunners were stalling and holding things back for what they had planned for the final season...everything has come down to this and I'm expecting an epic 6 episodes filled with dramatic beats, twists and movie quality CGI action sequences
