Game of Thrones - May Contain Spoilers

Post by randy-poffo on Tue 19 Apr 2011, 6:36 pm

First topic message reminder :

Did anyone catch the first episode last night on Sky Atlantic.If so what were you're thoughts on it.
I'm a fan of the books that the show came from and was a bit worried how it would come across on TV.But I Really enjoyed the first episode and thought most of the charchters came across well.I'm looking foward to watching the rest of the season.

I'm hoping there is some sort of twist or turn left as I can't stand Daenerys - maybe she will go crazy and Tyrion will do a Jamie on her.

Another good, albeit nowhere near as action packed episode. probably needed after the culmination of last week

I hate, despise, mega loathe Baelish.....can't stand the man. he's an underhanded, sneaky little so and so and I can't wait for Arya to bring his life to an end with his own dagger

Wonder how Daenerys will react if and when she finds out what we just found out about Jon Snow? Wonder if she will bend the knee....

I personally hope Littlefinger lasts right up until the end of season 8 before meeting his demise, think the last season needs that overarching villain that set all the wheels in motion.

Well, we don't actually KNOW what Gilly was about to say, but it does look remarkably as though two men with competing claims to the Iron Throne have just gone of to form the Fellowship of the Ring White walker capturing party...

Less sure than I used to be about exactly where all this is heading.

I have been a bit disappointed - if understanding the logic - in the way the TV show has been culling characters for no apparent reason and trimming down plot lines ; but this season seems to hint at a return to the less black and white characterizations that make the books so fascinating. Still very keen on the spectacular - and who can blame them? They've got dragons - but the narrative may indeed have a twist or two left in these abbreviated last seasons.

Is it just me or is Daenerys being deliberately painted as less and less like a suitable ruler ? Personally it is her rather stiff and pompous speechmaking that really jars ; but she is starting to look more and more like her father's daughter - a penchant for burning enemies alive being perhaps not an ideal quality in a People's Princess...OK , I get that some of her enemies aren't very nice people ; but still...

How about Sansa for the Iron Throne when it's all done and dusted ? Don't think Jon would be interested.

Certainly both Sansa and Daenarys are developing dark sides, while the likes of Jamie, Arya and The Hound have always been somewhat ambiguous.

I think the Dany / Tarleys execution scene was more to do with establishing that she has the power and authority to carry out such things (after all, we've previously had Robb Stark and John behead prisoners), while the crushing of the Lannister Army was a tactical necessity and if you have air superiority (in the form of fire breathing dragons), use it...

Anyway, it was certainly an interesting episode from a narrative point of view last night (helped by having two scenes of Bronn :-) ), and I can understand it being relatively short of action (iirc, the body count was only 4, as opposed to the thousands from the week before).

Can't see how Sansa ends up on the throne even with Littlefinger pulling some strings - she has no hereditary claim and insufficient power / support.

I'm disappointed in how the last few episodes have gone .. all of the hints and subtle plot points that led to all the theories and speculation in previous seasons are gone, and we're being smacked in the face by obvious answers

The pace of the show has gone too far imo. This episode had Jamie travelling from the Reach to Kings Landing, Tyrion and Davos travelling to Kings Landing and back again then Jon travelling beyond the wall - how does that make any sense

I think they would have been better off sticking to longer seasons, or make it 9 seasons. It feels like they're just rushing to a Hollywood finish rather than sticking to the story that GRRM would have written

Yes that's my feeling too. Guess it is altogether too big a story to tell on screen - even eight seasons requires a bit of cutting down. And to keep (expensive , now ) actors on one project for so long...

Dummy : I was being a bit flippant in advocating Sansa for queen -though by the time the internal wars and the white walker attacks are over she might be the only one left Smile
As for Dany frying prisoners I'd say there is a big difference between executing people (like Karstark) for dishonorable assassinations of innocents (fair enough) and killing basically honest soldiers after their surrender
just because they won't turn coat and serve the new mistress ? I mean if its just "all is fair in medieval warfare " then how is she any different from Cersei or any other tyrant ?

No matter : I will keep watching. Just hope we end up with a satisfactory conclusion rather than just a Lord of The Rings style final battle/wedding/coronation - which would be a little too obvious.

I really hope it doesn't have a happy ending, that come the end Baelish plays everyone off against each other and somehow claims the throne himself.

No, I really want Varys to come out on top - much more cleverly sneaky than Littlefinger

I think Snow takes the throne.

I don't think Cersei is pregnant, i think she's lying. I think she will kill Tyrion after he proves he was right to Jamie, and Jamie kills her, becoming the ultimate King/Queenslayer.

Apparently HBO Spain have accidentally released episode 6 (now been removed from their online streaming content) so tread lightly on Social Media and other internet pages as there are people posting spoilers who have seen it

Enjoyed that.

So John isn't a I am a twonk of the highest order and has legitimate claim to the throne. Will the characters ever know this, or is this just for the audience?

The storylines need trimmed down, it has gotten away from the author - what with 3 books becoming 5 becoming 7 becoming unfinished etc. Too many side stories and convoluted arcs.

Looking forward to next week.
