A Game of Thrones

Recommended Posts

 

First part wasn't what I'd hoped it to be (HBO writers taking big liberties again) and was feeling a bit meh about it all and I was fearing for the worst - then Dinklage came and saved the god damn day.

Yes.

 

 

I think that the liberties they took in episode 5 were for the better but last night was the first time the show disappointed me.

 

They end the third season with an epic speech about how she's gonna safe Theon. Then they start this episode with yet another speech on why they will safe Theon and then we get a 30 second fight and she claims he's dead. However you put it, that was pretty fucking lame and crappy storytelling.

 

Indeed, Dinklage saved this episode.

 

However the liberties they are taking are already starting to show some cracks. A bit premature for sure, but still.

Yeah this never happens in the book, ok fine, I can live with this deviation again. But what REALLY made me shout at the TV was the super hard cut at the end. One second we're in the keep fighting (also it's really narrow and cramped, the ironborn are three abreast with shields, ramsays men have fuck all and he's topless and just wildly swinging his weapons, I'm no combat specialist but the guy with the shield he was hitting could of easily killed ramsay but he still manages to win... no) then the next second the ironborn are back in the boats leaving and I'm sat there thinking if the file skipped a few seconds and was corrupt. NOPE.

 

Ramsay and Theons bath scene was good, though. Very tense I liked that. That should of been the whole section, not that silly... stuff. Bah.

Yeah, that whole scene was just kinda pointless really, and really badly edited.

 

Peter Dinklage did an incredible job in the trial scene though. Fantastic acting.

Yep yep and yep.

Huge setup with Theon's sister and then what a letdown.  I suppose it was to build the ending with Ramsay and Theon (obviously Ramsay is hatching something) but they have to do a better job or else this series will just start meandering.  

 

Also...

I haven't read book 4 yet so I don't know where it is going, but now Dany is sitting on a throne and ruling...her whole story is getting very stale...

 

I dunno, I still love the show but they better not go all Lost on us and just drag on.  I want epic closures!

minor spoiler

that's basically what happened to her in the books as well - she gets stuck in those cities for a while. don't fear though, there's some good stuff going to happen, both on epic battle scale and on a more political level again!

Will there be justice for once in game of thrones !

 

However it was very satisfying to see the sneaky guy push the crazy bitch into the moon hole or something. Although i don't like the sneaky guy, he is up to no good going all intrigue and shit.

 

Sorry i'm making my own names, it is all very complicated.

 

Three months ago i didn't gave a damn and now i'm hooked, as in downloading the last episode at 7 am and watch it in underwear with my morning coffee, fuck this

An improvement over the last two episodes in some regards. It's such a shame that they have to cut SO MUCH out in order to squeeze in their own scenes.

Melisandre getting her titties out again. God damn. I literally exclaimed "Jesus christ dem titties!"

at the TV when that scene came on.

 

I miss the original gregor, though. I hope this new one grows on me.

Yes, they're cutting a whole lot. Mostly for the better though. 

 

Remember how long it took for Lisa to get thrown out? The entire climb with the mules, all the epileptic attacks, the marriage, the almost rape, the singer, etc. Don't get me started about Brienne, what a drag that was. No this is better.

 

I do wonder who Peter is going to blame though.
