Look, I never said it's not a good show, (Its my fav on tv) but you prove my point when I say we fan boys/girls can't truly make subjective post unless we strip all emotion. That dosent happen here much; look at the rankings of each ep. Not many votes below seven.
It reminds me of when Star Wars ep 1 came out. People where going nuts as they made their way out of theaters saying how great it was. A few months later most were in tears.
Remember fan is short for fanatic.
You should have quit when you were merely way behind. Now you are approaching 'expressing irredeemably stupid opinions'
This thread has a ten point scale. That scale isn't really defined, so each of us is applying our own definitions, all of which are equally valid. I have chosen to define a 'ten' as 'in the top ten percent of all television shows ever produced'. I don't see any logical flaw in giving this episode that rating. So much of it was absolutely brilliant. I can't see how anyone using my definition could rate it below seven. But I don't whine at the 2's, because I know they are using different definitions.
As best I can tell, your scale is "on a scale of one to ten, how much does this meet my fanwank expectations". It isn't perfect. In some cases it isn't what I would have done. But they have captured the essence of the story, with the possible exception of the direwolves. They didn't get Renly right. But out of dozens of characters, he's the only one I think they got indefensibly wrong. That is a well over 90% score in my book. I am happy.
