Got caught up on the new season this past weekend. As usualy Tyrion is great as always.
And I like that Bronn got his rewards, and pretty much admitted he can kill children.

these episodes are waaaaaaay too short- they need to be at least an hour 20...i feel like the opening credits are longer than some story segments.

Anyone else an "icky" when seeing that ShadowThing being born/created?
That's how you show dark magic coming into effect! By being so horrible
that it creates a gut reaction in those seeing it.

You mean 'The Devil's Queef'?

Yeah, I thought "Okay, this just stepped up a notch here. Now we're getting into some dark magic-type s**t..."

While reading the books, the two characters I despised most were Joffrey and Ramsay Bolton. The actor portraying Joffrey in the show is perfect for the role, and I applaud him for his acting.

Love that little guy. :)


Tyrion is easily my favorite character on the show.

I cannot think of a death that would be come close to giving him the justice he deserves before he dies.
And I must agree with what was mentioned above. The actor playing him does an excellent job.
In particular I love the mix of emotions he shows on his face when he does senes with his uncle Tyrion.

He makes Malfoy look like a Boy Scout. This actor has a great future.

Btw, how does everyone feel about the cgi for the dire wolves.
Myself, I love that they have decided to go with it.
It's been a little hard for me to picture the dogs used last season as creatures that inspire fear and terror.

I think in the first season they were still pups. Now they've grown into real dire wolves.

Not having read the books, I think it would be proper if Arya's wolf returned and finished the job he started with Joffrey.

last night's ep was pretty good- this season definitely had a lot of exposition, maybe too much, so to see battle actually joined was pretty good.

i really hope next week is not anticlimactic!!!

i do question the 'siege' stanis layed down...and why did the hound sortie out really? I guess for budget reasons I wasn't expecting a long drawn out proper siege, and am also wondering where the red headed witch went off to.

The hound is Sandor Clegane, isn't it?
Spoiler


Anyway, for me, it was a relief to see one story followed all the way through the episode without switching to another set of characters that we've half-forgetten.
I don't remember very much about Stannis, just the Hound thanking him for cutting off his fingers.

definitely am with you on the segments...they should keep to the gym class schedule of A week is this set of characters, B week is the other. When the opening credit is longer than some story segments you have a problem, especially when some of the segments kind of dragged into exposition which was hard to keep track of.
