I like Paedar's idea of plenty attention given to the short stories, especially everything set in the 'Thousand Worlds' universe. That stuff is really what took it to the next level for me, when it came to my love of GRRMs works.
Perhaps something with GRRM's editors.
If there is a screening of the Doorways pilot, maybe showings of the Twilight Zone episodes, and the best Beauty and the Beast episodes.
The Business Meeting is a fraking joke. What a waste of time. This thing could be done in half the time if people actually paid attention and stopped fucking around. Some of us would actually like to attend panels. Or George RR Martins reading. Which we missed.
God, I really want to participate in this discussion but this thread is so long I despair of even reading a few pages of it.
I will say that I really loved that the episode had such a visual link to the tradition of ASOIAF art. So many of the scenes were laid out in compositions that couldn't help but be familiar to followers of fantasy art and art from the series. I thought the colors were stunning and some of the scenes had really spectacular imagery - the meeting of the two Bolton armies, the scenes inside the Eyrie (whether that wonderful winding LF stroll down the stairs, Sansa in her room, or the great shots in the LF trial) , the dramatic ugliness outside Moat Cailin with Theon on his horse, Grey Worm leaping into the river viewed from under water, Barriston and Mormont on the outside terrace, the absolutely stunning battle location in Kings Landing.
So many of the episodes lack that epic visual element, but I thought it was well done in this case.
It was a feast for the eyes.
(Of course, as Pod says, it may helped that I was watching it in HD).
