    How Would You Rate Episode 110

    I gave it a 9/10. Not the best episode of the season but certainly up there with the best ones. The reason for it not being the best for me is the fact that there was too much non-reader stuff in it again. The conversation between Baelish and Littlefinger, even though I love them both in the series, was layed on too thick imo. As well as the Pycelle scene. I understand why they have to do it but can't help but dislike those scenes though. Maybe on my rewatch I'll enjoy this season more. Some more nitpicky stuff. I though MMD delivered some of her lines a bit hasty.. And one of my favorite all times lines was delivered differently from the book. Wtf was that about. Jaime saying "There are no men like me, only me" It's "There's only me"? Why in the world would they shorten that sentence? I think the original works just fine. Apart from that there was a lot to love about this episode. I was on the edge of my seat and scared to death towards the end because the scene with the dragons was going to be a make or break scene. If they had looked crappy that would have been the end of the show for me but they nailed it to perfection. Really spot on, loved it.

    How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    That is pretty ridiculous indeed. I gave it a 9, just like last week's episode. At first I missed the two battles as well but soon I realised we didn't see the battle at the whispering woods either in the books. Better to have no fight scene in this case than an half-assed one. I think it was a bit naive to expect a big battle on the TV screen all of a sudden, still the producers might run into some problems in the coming season.
