I think the basis of the problem is that they've had to create a ton of new material for Dany this season; Emilia Clarke is a fan-favorite, yet the writers were faced with a situation where they were trying to adapt a book, in which Dany barely appears at all and pretty much does nothing of consequence until the House of the Undying. Yet, they can't just keep her off-screen. Same thing with Robb.
It's really true. Our prime moderators on this site, who write the best and most insightful reviews of the adaption of ASoIaF complain that George's mise en scène at Qarth is not being captured by D and D. ...
I think the the producers of this show know that ... but they would have to hire a teleplay writer and a director who could realize that , who would be?
Terrence Malick does his own thing so I don't think he be a possibility, Jean Cocteau is long dead, Christopher Nolan comes to mind. If someone could be found would the bulk of HBO audience want something just atmospheric ... I love to see it, but seems like box office poison.
It's odd, Emilia Clarke showed she had the range last year, and in the first two episodes, so brief, she projected a quietly confident and commanding manner. I liked the scene where she tells the three blood-riders in Dothraki to make the search. Episode 3 wasn't so bad. But then why she was directed to be so repetitious and kind of whiny I don't understand. It seems they didn't try different ways to deliver her lines, understated cool authority would have been better.
I don't agree with the producers about over using the dragons. Lord! they have had I think about less than 60 seconds of screen time. A scene of her pointing out their names would have been a nice touch, with the three on screen. I am not sure what happens in E10 this year, 30 min. of VFX dragons?
