I always did because of the word Gentry being said as jentry.

I try not to analyze the show at all during the first run-through. I don't post here, I don't tweet, I don't talk on the phone or converse with anyone - just watch and enjoy. The analysis can come later (preferably after subsequent viewings).
You listening, HBO???

Actually I thought they were trying to achieve a pause in the background as Ser Hugh dies and LF tells his story to Sansa, kind of a frozen or slowed down moment.

America didn't invent the round arena for massive sporting events; blame Italy.

Ok, so is the general view that Tyrion just wanted to be polite by bribing someone rather than pulling rank? I'm still a little surprised though, that everyone just remains seated and eating when the son of a Great Lord walks into the room. This seems far more egalitarian than I would expect given the political structure, and how everyone was bowing and scraping to Robert when he arrived at Winterfell.
These people are sworn to Riverrun, not Casterly Rock. Presumably the result would have been different if it had been Edmure Tully.

Agreed, considering how important both are later. Infact I would've liked to see the preamble to the tourney - the buzz and pageantry that must surround such an event. I'd have liked to see Beric riding into town with his retinue saying he's here to win the Hand's Tourney. This should feel like a city alive with possibility. Really show us what the kingdom was like in peace so we can appreciate the proper horror of the kingdom at war. We know winter's coming but less us enjoy this bit of summer.
Think it's possible to be so gravely and intently focused on hitting all the crucial plot points (and really the series hasn't missed one yet) that you place less of an emphasis on those little touches that add to the vibrancy of the series.

Everyone on the internet has 190 IQ's, super model wives (multiple) and a law degree.
Didn't you know this?
I wish I could find the clip from the Simpsons of the Itchy and Scratchy fan complaining to Homer.

Regarding the criticism of the show's criticism, I don't get it. Do people really only want to see post after post of gushing praise? I was honest about what I saw as faults. It's not to say I didn't find things I liked (as I noted). I'm just stating my opinion.

And Tyrion was awesome as well.
To all the nit pickers... lol
Awesome episode, best yet and I have a feeling they only get more amazing each week...
