Mr Fixit Posted June 18, 2011 Share Posted June 18, 2011 I was just using it as an example. It's similar...Criticism: I didn't like the tourney scene because it seemed small and they only showed one joust Answer: it probably would have been better with more extras but that's the way they filmed it so best to ignore it and move onCriticism: I don't like the Roz scenes Answer: it probably would have been better without those Roz scenes, but that is what the writers chose to do and they filmed it so best to ignore it and move onI understand that there is an inherent limit to what a production can do on television. But if done correctly, people shouldn't notice the budget constraints. When I watched Spartacus or the Wire or even Rome I didn't give much consideration to the budget because it wasn't drawn to my attention. Here it is. That is the problem.Maybe A Song of Ice and Fire simply can't fit within a television budget, but that doesn't mean everyone should ignore it. If the actors were only pretending to ride imaginary horses ala Monty Python and Holy Grail, people should (correctly) criticize it. You can't just ignore any budget or lack of scale criticisms or consider them invalid just because this is on television.Look, if you're gonna just twist and interpret my words your way, go ahead. I won't reply, and you can just put words in my mouth and then respond.As for Rome, guess why it got cancelled... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
