How would you rate episode 301?
lokisnow replied to Ran's topic in E01: Valar DohaerisThis was a solid 8, let down by the lack of Arya and the fist of First men cocktease of black leader and sound effects rather than a battle. If you can't afford a battle then just start with Sam running, don't give the viewers half a blowjob just because you can afford a SFX library.
How would you rate episode 203?
lokisnow replied to Ran's topic in E03: What Is Dead May Never DieI give it a 9 because the fire under Jaquen's cage seemed pretty lackluster and I'm not so sure about Asha just yet.
How Would You Rate Episode 110
lokisnow replied to Ran's topic in E10: Fire and BloodI didn't even catch it was Ros with Pycelle. however, I thought it was worth it for all the limber stretching and then the pause before he opens the door, the sudden slump of the shoulders, the hunch of the back, and then assuming a shambling slow gate out of his room. I didn't even recognize it as Pycelle at the first of the scene because he wasn't his usual weezing slow witted self (as he was in council). And then to follow it with Varys/Littlefinger repartee just to subtly underscore the point that all three of these leading council members are not what they seem. Very very clever. I also LOVE the suggestion that Benioff and Weiss are planning on using Ros to parallel Shae in some way, I think Pycelle is a bigger player than we've realized and the entire reason we need Ros in the show is that in season 2 and 3 we're going to need some Pycelle scenes, and those scenes can't exist unless he has someone to talk to.
How Would You Rate Episode 104?
lokisnow replied to Ran's topic in E04: Cripples, Bastards, and Broken ThingsDAMN! the show gets better and better. That was a ten, the first ten of the season, I was starting to get worried, but it keeps improving, they opened with an 8, barely pushed over to a 9, improved a little bit more the third time out but it was really the fourth time that was this show's charm. And now pretty much every domino has been set, and with tonight's ending, Lady Stark just knocked over the first one. It's all downhill from here, I think it'll be epic. naw, I never really understood why the hound would actually blab to Sansa. It makes sense for Littlefinger to purvey that particular information, and it's a little creepy how he's using it to kind of impress Sansa. I think they kept Gregor in that armor because he's only really going to be seen in his armor. He'll be an icon, recognizable by the gargantuan presence he imposes rather than his face. And something about the Armor design screamed to me.
[Pre-ADwD Spoilers] Jon 3 but actually Jon 1
lokisnow replied to LugaJetboyGirl's topic in Pre-ADwD Archivea much more cinematic ending than the hanging. In this one, Jon is an active player in the death/execution, in the other one, it's a passive offscreen task done by someone else. This is more concise and would play better on camera, because you see the immediate direct impact on Jon. In a novel, it's more subtle difference, and internal thoughts can texture either version however the author likes, but on screen, a scene like this execution plays far stronger than 'being sent offscreen to die'. We know GRRM wrote his episode sometime this year, I wonder if getting in the screenwriting groove for a few weeks/month got the creativity gears rolling at different speeds, directions than they had been before, and bumped him out of the writing and rewriting rut around the Knot and Gap.

Hello from Benioff and Weiss
lokisnow replied to David and Dan's topic in Casting[quote name='David and Dan' post='1645381' date='Jan 11 2009, 22.57']I can't act. Trust me on this. The Hound is one of my favorite characters and I'm flattered by the suggestion, but we'll get someone way more talented than I am to play the part. D[/quote] Haha, nice. I was excited to hear you guys were doing this, I loved your outline/treatment for Ender's Game though I never saw the script, it was already better than Scott's scripts.
