  1. What I loved -------------- The Brotherhood. The portrayals of Thoros and Anguy were especially interesting. Sansa's conversation with Margaery and the Queen of Thorns was also very good. What I didn't like / didn't get -------------- The pacing felt a bit rushed at the beginning. Theon's introduction should probably have been delayed a bit further. The torture scene wasn't too effective, and Alfie seemed to hold back this episode. I didn't get the scene between Shae and Tyrion. And while I haven't complained about Shae before, lately I've started to cringe every time she opens her mouth. I had heard about Cat's scene and was seriously worried, but it didn't turn out all that bad. Some bad stuff ----------- - The line "You never seen a warg before?" by Ygritte and "Where were you this time?" by Mance. - "Of course, if you don't stop ... you'll probably die too" -- D. Edd. Disclaimer: I don't mind change, and I might change my mind.
  2. The White Walkers were absolutely terrible. Why do they walk so slowly, staring up at the sky, pretending to be dead like a five-year-old would? The only thing missing was their tongue hanging out. I felt like I was watching Shaun of the Dead. That was simply embarrassing. The supernatural is a delicate aspect of ASoIF and should be handled in a way that doesn't lessen the story. Edit: Yes, wights. Though the White Walkers weren't impressive either.
  3. Amazing episode! I love TV-Ygritte already … and the scene with Tyrion and Joffrey was astonishing.
  4. (Edit: Sorry, I missed AquariumDrinker's post!) Robb, I hope this reaches you in time. My father has rejected the offer and plans to attack the North, raiding the shores and taking Deepwood Motte. Mobilize your army and make for the North before it's too late. I'll write again when I can.
  5. Great Sansa/Shea scene! "You can brush my hair". Subtle and well written. (No, not sarcasm.)
  6. I liked it and I'm not too worried about the changes. I found the cliffhanger pretty lame, though, but it might work better for non readers. And I don't understand why so many people like D. Edd ... he's a jackass and not the least funny.

    [Book Spoilers] Ep 201 Discussion Part 2

    I think the scene accomplished quite a lot, actually. It shows that Bran is still in Winterfell, that his family is gone, that he wants to do/be something/somewhere else, that many men have left the north due to the war, that the war is not only affecting the south, it reminds us of Stark's position as liege lord, and it serves as a segue to the wolf stuff, which in turn is nicely followed by the scene with Osha, Hodor and Bran.
  8. I really enjoyed it. 7 or 8. Acting: Overall seems to have been upped a notch. Cercei, Tyrion and Joffrey stood out... Sansa, Bran -- all great. CGI: The wolves and the dragon were extremely impressive. Shae in front of the the King's Landing scenery didn't look too well, though (but this was a problem with season 1 as well; lighting actors in front of big bright backdrops isn't very easy). Littlefinger/Cercei and Joffrey/Cercei: Yes, it was surprising at first, but it doesn't really bother me (unless we see some major character changes during the next episodes). The scenes were actually quite enjoyable. Robb/Jamie: I liked how Grey Wolf was introduced. Jamie wasn't scared, but of course you flinch when a direwolf snaps at you. Catelyn: I like the book-Cat more than the way they're portraying her so far in the show. Stannis: Well played! I think I might enjoy his screen time this season. Same goes for Davos. Melisandre: Because she is the most embarrassing character from the novels I didn't expect much from her scenes. The introduction of such a character even got a little chuckle from some of my non book-reading friends. I have nothing against the actress, though, and yes, she's hot. Who knows, maybe I come to like the character. Bran: Well acted. I enjoyed him talking to the lords with Luwin. The wolf dream: I liked how Bran checked out his own reflection in the water after having the dream. The dream itself was also well done. Of course my non book-reading friends aren't quite sure what's going on here, but that's GOOD. Ros: I don't care for the character, but I don't think she does any damage either. Daenerys: Not too exciting. My non book-reading friends haven't seen any teasers, character presentations etc. But they thought the episode was very cool, and they all understood the poisoning and the bastard-killing. The only question I got was "Who was Renly again?" I'll let that one pass ... Overall I'm impressed they're able to make such a great show. I'm certainly very grateful.
