Analyzing GAME OF THRONES’ Seventh Season Before the Finale

It’s the Friday before Game of Thrones‘ season finale, the internet is up in arms (again) over the “correct” viewing order of the Star Wars movies, and James Cameron shared some opinions on Wonder Woman that did not go over well with anyone, so yeah, there was a lot to discuss on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back.

Nerdist senior editor and host of The Dan Cave Dan Casey filled in for host Jessica Chobot, and he was joined by managing editor Alicia Lutes, science editor Kyle Hill, and Mothership writer and the number one person alive rooting for Tormund and Brienne to make giant babies, Amy Vorpahl.

With this being the last episode of Nerdist News Talks Back before Game of Thrones‘ big season seven finale, the gang discussed what they think of this year so far and whether having fewer episodes has helped or hurt. And while not everyone might be okay with the relatively low death total of the season (so far), everyone definitely approves a beardless Tormund Giantsbane in real life.

From there they hit the hyperdrive on the never-ending debate that has popped up again, about what is the correct order to watch the Star Wars movies. Machete? Ring Theory? (:cough: 456-123-456-7 :cough:). But if you think that’s hard, where and how should you fit in Rogue One and Clone Wars before you do your big re-watch before The Last Jedi?

Finally it was time to address James Cameron’s comments that Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman was actually a step back for women in Hollywood. Yeah, he really did say that. Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has already brushed off that criticism, but did our panel think Cameron had a point? Can a woman be too beautiful to be a role model? Spoiler alert: we’re Team Jenkins on this one.

You’ll also notice we gave away some beta codes for Call of Duty: World War 2 (subtle, huh!). If you don’t want to miss out on those chances in the future and you want to get your questions answers, tune in live to Nerdist News Talks Back every weekday at 1 pm PST on our YouTube and Alpha channels. Like on Monday for All Kings Considered where we’ll be talking about the GoT finale.

What do you think of this year’s Game of Thrones? What order should someone watch the Star Wars movies? And did you agree with James Cameron or not? Talk back to us in the comments below.
