    How Would You Rate Episode 110

    8/10 for me. There was way too much departure from the book. Overall the ep felt unbalanced to me. Mixed feelings about the ending... in some ways it was really cool and dramatic but it bordered on cheesy.

    How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    Yea this was a tough one to rate. I wanted to give this ep a 7 or 8, but that ending scene was so damn good... 9/10. I know that's too generous but that closing scene was wicked.

    How Would You Rate Episode 108?

    Absolutely, Bran is awesome in this production and every ep he is in.

    How Would You Rate Episode 108?

    Woohoo!! Best ep yet, and my first 10 rating. This is how all the eps should be. Lots of dialogue straight from the book. Cheered every time I heard em. Tywin, Tyrion, Bron, Jon, ~~VARYS~~! ... awesome stuff. If only all the eps were done like this one.

    How Would You Rate Episode 107?

    Oh first ep without Tyrion? I know he's not in theses scenes but I missed him all the same. Agree with most here - the scene with Tywin and Jaime was well done.

    8/10. Only thing holding this ep back from being one of the best was that ludicrous scene with Littlefinger and the whores. Wtf? Oh well. The scenes at the wall continue to steal the series for me. They've gotten just about everything spot on there. The scenes at KL were good and dramatic. And of course, great ending to this ep!

    How Would You Rate Episode 106?

    Great ep. Gave it a 9. One of the best so far. Tyrion is just nailing it. Was a good Ned ep too. Oh and really enjoyed Theon. Actually, my bad-ass award goes to him for bullseye-ing the wildling. This was also the first ep (besides the pilot) where I really enjoyed the Dany scenes. That closing scene with Viserys getting his golden crown was tense and well done.
  8. yup, I think so too. At least I hope so.
  9. Gave this one a 7. Wasn't my fav ep. The scene with Renly and Loras was too much a departure from the book and didn't seem to add much. I most certainly did love the scenes en rout and at the Eyrie! The battle with the wildlings was pretty tight and gorey, it had impact. Probably my fav shot of all was Tyrion looking over the edge of his sky-cell. Weeeeee. Varys, Littlefinger and Ned... all have great on screen chemistry. Was a "coming out" for Theon (pun intended)... at first I didn't like this casting, but now I think it's quite good. His face and acting really match his character type and story arc. Was fun to finally see/hear some more Sandor... hopefully they won't keep stealing his lines (giving them to other characters like last ep).
  10. Yea, Jon is really nailing all his scenes. Perfect casting and acting. Only scene I didn't like so much was Viserys and Jiqui in the bath tub. Maybe because it was such a departure for the books. Still, it was a op to advance some the legend/dragon aspects of the story. Viserys is doing a great job though. Sam is awesome! Was really happy with his scenes. His friendship with Jon is believable. Too bad we don't get more Ghost. I'm missing the bonding between Jon and Ghost. The Hand's Tourney was pretty good. Gregor's lance through the squire's throat was gruesome... gave Gregor a good deal of foreboding. Didn't like that LF told Sansa the story of Sandor's burned face (instead of Sandor himself). Hmmm, seems like a missed op to develop Sandor's character. Theon is growing on me... didn't like the casting at first, but think he did a good job in this ep. Ending was pretty good. Overall gave it an 8/10

    Poll: How would you rate Episode 103?

    Totally agree on KL being too clean. It's supposed to be a dump! But of course, all the scenes so far have been in the Red Keep, so it's cleanliness can be forgiven. But yea KL doesn't feel monsterous as it should. The wall is probably the most spot on of all. Its pretty much exactly as I picture it. I especially like the scene where Jon is looking over the edge... snow covered forest, vast scale, strong snowy wind blowing across. Perfect.

    Poll: How would you rate Episode 103?

    Gave this one a 9/10... probably more than it deserves, but the scenes at the wall and a few others were so cool. Also the story seems to be settling in for me. While the adaptation is clearly the weakest aspect of the HBO series, it's still pretty good. The only scene I did not like in this ep was the conversation between Robert and Jaime (where Robert outwardly chastises him). It just seemed a bit over the top. It does present an interesting angle though (ie, Robert really wasn't a good king and kind of arrogant as well). Fav scenes - all the stuff at the wall. I was worried about the actor for Jon (as were some others) but I have to say he's stealing every scene he's in for me. Also the odd friendship Jon has with Tyrion came off well. Was wondering how they would end this ep... the fade out of Ned watching Arya sword training with Syrio was pretty good. At first he's bemused and a little proud, but then seems to have some misgivings. Bad-ass award goes to Joggo (was that him?) for neck-whip-lasso-ing Viserys! Overall, great stuff.
  13. Ep2 8/10. I can't see how anyone could give a 6 or less rating. I mean... the casting is incredible, production is tip-top, and the story is - well it's GRRM. I suppose the adaptation is what's left, but even that is quite good. I think Game of Thrones will have a lot of 'sleeper' value. Anyway, I'm thoroughly enjoying the HBO production. Ignore the gratuitous tits and it's almost LOTR does GRRM.
