Thread: [GENERAL DISCUSSION] [SPOILERS] HBO's Game of Thrones Series

  1. #101

    Default Re: Winter is Here! Discuss HBO's "Game Of Thrones"[SPOILER HEAVY!]

    Agreed, my biggest qualm is that little finger told Sansa the story of the Hound rather than the Hound himself after he'd been in his cups. The informative, cliche style of that scene was incredibly out of place. Only a slight blemish on a gorgeous face, though that was a part in the book I am rather partial to.

    To change the subject drastically.... am I the only person who thinks Titus Welliver HAS to be cast as Davos Seaworth? I'm re-reading the series again and that is one thing I am dead sure on.

    Losing Beric to bring back Catelyn is the worst trade ever, unless they sacrificed Jon Snow to save Sansa or something.

    Just saw the most recent episode and it was a shocker. The fight scene with Loras and Gregor was very well done, *POSSIBLE MINOR SPOILER AHEAD* and I was very surprised at the depiction of the romantic relationship between Loras and Renly being so blatant. I dont really have any opinion on the whole sex scene, but that was a surprising departure from the established storyline.

    Exactly!
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    It completely messes up the story later with Renly marrying Margaery because the viewers know he is gay. People who read the books already know of course but people watching the series dont. I am a little upset Viserys hasnt died yet, I was looking forward to that in this episode .
    The Eyrie just looks weird. I always pictured it up in a mountain not standing alone amongst mountains. Also I thought there were supposed to be higher mountain peaks around the Eyrie. Bronn is awesome though. Overall the fights have been very well done and I look forward to some more action.

    The next episode is titled "A Golden Crown". That episode was great, my only MAJOR complaint was Renly being made into a wimp who is afraid of blood. He's gay, and it was in private, so I'm okay with that, though making him more stereotypical is sloppy. And inferiority complex? Fine. But making him a wimp? The guy who fights the Hound in the tourney and who is ready to lead a cavalry charge in the next book? Really? Kinda out of nowhere.

    Bronn is perfect, although I did miss the scene where he euthanized his cohort after the fight, that's a good character moment. I am so glad they included his line "Give me ten good men and a few grappling hooks, I'll impregnate the ."

    So funny and so Bronn.

    Like everyone, I have to say that the whole Renly/Loras is a rape of the book characters! Loras is nowhere near his reputation of handsome... And Renly... He has lost all of his charisma...

    And about their big scene... I think I never more hated a scene before. In the book, it was subtle: the great friendship of the two men, the loyalty of Loras, the fact Renly isn't seen with women much, the colors of Renly's guard (more of a late treat to readers). Now, we have two gay from some american republican propaganda movie... (afraid of blood, conspiring, hair-hating, et ceterae). They made his sexuality something important instead of some interesting fact you discover later on...

    How are we supposed to take seriously their next moves? And what's next? A poor sad Margaery, beaten by his awful gay husband inlove of her brother (while he was kindness itself with her in the book)? His rainbow guard just back from the Westerosi Pride for battle (in Renly's bed, note on the battlefield of course...)?
    I don't know why but I think the peach scene will go from a memorable scene to some joke...

    Yeah... I'm mad about the directors about Renly... Turning one of my favorite character into a bad cliché...

    And about Lysa Arryn... Wasn't she supposed to be... You know... fat ?

    After the great attention they gave to Syrio Forel, you could hope they would give some love for such characters: the made lady of the Val, the most promising knight in the realm and one of the most serious candidate to the Iron Throne (if it wasn't for that shadow)...

    Meh. As a series I like it alot, an awful lot! However, as an adaptation of a Song of Ice and Fire?....Hnnnng, not so sure. I'm just going to ignore the books while I watch it and enjoy it for what it is. Then I'm going to get back to the books and ignore the series. Lots of likes but a few little bits and bobs that spoil the experience for me.

    would seem logical to just show the wolves alongside their owners (like lady with sansa, summer with bran and nymeria with arya) to establish their relationship.

    that theyve done nothing of the kind with ghost, shaggy and grey wind implies they are waiting for some scene where theyll do smth significant, like saving jons ass or chewing on the greatjon.

    theres simply not much action with robb (i bet GW will get some action when the wildlings try to kidnap bran) atm and less with rickon, so no wolves there. perhaps D&D go along the line: No pets on the wall, even for highborn bastards?

    Everyone seems to be forgetting Robb. I mean, he was the person I disliked the most from all the previews, but since I saw the actual thing... he just got me! Cant wait for the ambush near Riverrun or - as already mentioned - Grey Wind chewing off some of Greatjons fingers. I especially love his scottish accent

    Of course!! I do remember now . This was the only part of the whole series with which I wasnt quite sure - I mean, I found it heroic and ridiculously funny at the same time.

    And I also hated Thoros for bringing Catelyn back and not resurrecting Robb. But thats Georges kind of thing he always creates a super character everyone loves and kills him in the climax of the story
