How is it so far? Where are we up to? (Read the books, so spoilers don't bother me).
enlivened by a couple of brief scenes of tits and/or gore?
Bring back Eurotrash.
Obviously not a patch on going into the woods in your leathers and furs and wielding a real sword though.
ie not very
He looks exactly like the guy who saved Theon.
And has been Tyrion's squire for a while now.
I guess I'll never know.
Like the onion captain guy was in doctor who and you could literally see him thinking "this is WANK compared to game of thrones"
that they're bringing in the whole Theon/Bastard of Bolton storyline this early, considering he goes missing for ages in the books.
Theon literally wouldn't be in the show for at least three years
I know the producers are doing the most wonderfuljob of adapting it, but I just keep finding myself picking holes in it and my enjoyment of the programme is being severely hampered.
Started diverging more in s3 but you can see WHY theyve done it. Not like normally where it doesnt make any sense and jars against the storyline or character or whatever. I have only read them once though, and Im not too hot on picking up on tiny details so i might be missing stuff
The only thing I don't understand that they've changed is Robb and his wife
With all the implications about the Westerling family. I know the whole series is a bit complicated, but perhaps the producers thought it unnecessary. Idk.
Does Robb turn into a Nazi?
are watching it (I was playing harvest moon) But I reckon that blond dragon woman is going to use the unsullied to destroy the power of the people that are creating and selling them, her 'big' dragon, will not fight against her, because it is not just 'a servant' their relationship is two way.
Scared the life out of me. I wasn't sure whether or not it was deliberate at first, turns out it clearly wasn't.
I thought the episode was ok, but it was saved by the shocking ending. There were too many pointless scenes, like Tyrion's squire visiting the whorehouse,and Arya saying bye to that fat kid who's barely even been involved (he might be a cult hero in the books or something I dunno, but I struggled to care.) then the basically just did the same thing as last week by introducing some random guy with a bow and arrow in a forest. And where is Stannis' evil girlfriend going?
right at the fucking end aswell :(
realised it was soem shit version of the bear song, there once was a bear etc etc.
missed the last 3 lines of dialogue and a good scream I reckon :(
legion with no name were singing earlier on in the ep..
Apologies to Matt if that's what he meant.
That's Roose Bolton's mob, The Flayed Men
It's The Hold Steady
They've some a full version of the song for Record Store Day
Been a bit of a slow burner up until last night.
Actually feeling sorry for Jamie Lannister....wtf!?
Damn bastards playing with my emotions!
Not read the books but it’s a bit of a tricky one – will he team up with Bron (think that’s her name)? It was quite clever really, because initially when you thought that she looked worried when he was being released, it seemed like the viewer was supposed to think that she was fearful for what he’d do to her on his release. But then after ‘WHAT HAPPENED’ the viewer was then to realise that she was concerned for his well-being. Because she’d pre-empted what would happen.
More than likely my take on it, though.
Bron is Tyrion's mercenary.
and my gf was all lol yeah coz she's read the books and the it was like POW you've got no hand
Because the tone so far has suggested that everyone is corruptible by something / you should trust no one, it was nice to see a bit of honest violence meted out to a "better" instead of the usual double crossing.
Just flagging so you don't have to click on this meme if you don't want to
Jamie and Brienne are such a good pairing, they have a real spark between them. Also had big love for the rivalry between Jorah and Barriston over who Daenerys was going to listen to for battle advice, can see Jorah getting jealous over her new advisor. Also hope to hell she has a good plan in place for the whole giving up her dragon thing and isn't just getting carried away in the excitement of everything.
with these threads because of the book reading bastards that will inevitably chuckle to themselves when they read it
and eventually the book readers wont know whats going to happen the rate theyre filming/hes writing
the Caitlin Stark
Great stuff, we need a lot more Bron. Enjoyed Podrick being some sort of medieval dirk diggler as well
The Hold Steady song sounded better when sung by the chaps on horses.
I hope that's not the last we've seen of the hilarious lecherous and unpleasant slaver dude. 'I like the curve of her arse'.
Who is Theon's mysterious saviour, he's a bit of a dab hand with the bow. Are we supposed to know? Book people don't answer this if you know.
Charles dance is delightfully menacinig.
Ok, no one tell me.
it's the guy from Snow Patrol leading the singing
wherein the end credit music kicked in 15 seconds too early and ruined the drama of the last scene? pretty good going, internet.
See above. Scared the shit out of me. Actually thought it fitted quite well with them chopping off Jaime's hand. If it hadn't cut off that guy mid-sentence I might not have cottoned on.
NO SPOILERS IN THE TV THREAD
2 weeks running people have posted about Theon's storyline when it is clear the TV viewing audience isn't privy to that yet (think of it as delaying the character's intro from clash of kings) so please stop posting about it. Ta
There was a heavy feeling of doom and foreboding staking across the episode
I also liked that there were references to the first and third ever episodes
Edmure and Blackfish's intro was absolutely perfect. A couple of minutes. Not a single line of dialogue. Told you everything you needed to know about the characters
but I fucking loved that the episode ended with Jaime having his hand cut off and then that Hold Steady song kicking in.
It showed that the makers have a bit of sense of humour, considering the shocks and the amount of general grimness going on throughout the show.
Also, the Hold Steady version reminded me somewhat of the King of the Hill theme tune, which made it all the better.
I liked this episode overall, anyway. It's all about to kick off this series!
Where they said it's such a shocking event you need to have something shocking musically to reinforce that, and the jarring musical tone does that.
They also said they didn't think they could go to the composer and say *Write Jaime-getting-his-hand-cut-off music*
low-forbidding-horns-and-triplets-on-reverbed-to-fuck-timpani too, but there'd be no fun or challenge with that.
was so challenging. i really felt genuinely challenged.
