I love Cersei Posted June 17, 2011 Share Posted June 17, 2011 I'm reading here from time to time for years. Today I felt I wanted to share my thoughts.What I found to be awful:- Tyrion portrayed as an incapable buffoon, being knocked out (admittedly I laughed when I watched it, but what damage it has done to his character's portrayal cannot possibly be worth it)- Shae behaving like a princess even before she could possibly know enough of Tyrion's character to be so bold just doesn't seem to fit- Rob's battle looking like a tiny ambush affair; they should have *shown* that is was big scale - no matter how. Just a standing (mostly CGI) army before the battle would have done it- Lame explanations of the battles; it's significance - besides capturing Jaime - hasn't sufficiently been put across to the audience imo- Rob's direwolf should have been shown, or his role mentioned after the battle at leastpersonal:- would have liked to see Jaime fighting; as is, you never get the impression that he's a better than average swordsman- the Tyrion/Bronn/Shae scene was mostly fun but way too long - annoyingly long compared to how they had compressed more impactful scenes- despite of that, Tyrion should have told his whole marriage story- Shae's actress doesn't do it for me- I don't like Jon showing his emotions so freely, openly and heavily; I never pictured him that wayOverall it's a great pity that throughout episodes 1 to 9 I repeatedly got the impression of a low budget series, which it really isn't. This episode was no exception. Please note I do *not* think of/I do *not* refer to missing battle scenes when I say this.Ok, this may seem to some to be a pretty big list of things that I see in a negative light about this episode, but please believe me: it's a tiny thing compared to the list of things I really like and like very much. That one is so long that my computer would run out of memory dared I try putting it down.Outstanding besides the execution scene in this episode were e.g. the pairings Bronn/Tyrion, Catelyn/Rob, and - for the first time - Theon/Rob. Perfect chemistry there.Compared to the other episodes so far this was definitely in the upper third for me. I rate it 8/10. (I guess non-readers would aim a little lower though.)
