jacksonbrowne Posted May 19, 2015 Share Posted May 19, 2015 Discontent is a little like a rolling stone, to use a terribly over used metaphor. In season one its “Oh no, they changed this one thing that I liked”, by season 5 its “they changed a word, it was never sword, it was block”, I’m never watching this sh*t again, the wrong person got raped”. Despite being told that the show will be different, over and over and over again, people have a blockage. Instead of enjoying having a really well made Fantasy show on TV, something that encourages the genre, we have people screaming blue murder. If anyone has ever watched “The Big Bang” where the main characters get really involved in a stupid argument over a comic book character, like how does superman clean his underwear, and the audience laughs at how pointless it is. Well this is it in real life. The reason Sansa was put in that position was to make it personal. So that it would be emotionally tearing for the audience and not just another “read shirt” being tormented by Ramsay. Real emotional tole. We care about Sansa, we don’t want her to get hurt, she does, the Boltons become enemy #1. Stannis becomes hero #1 if he can smash heads. Not only does the show encourage the genre, it 'legitimises' it and brings it out of the fantasy ghetto where only dorks wearing Spock's ears, Arwen gowns and Stormtrooper helmets to their sleep hang out. Game of Thrones is a show that makes sword-and-dragon fantasy cool and into something that intelligent people can watch and enjoy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
