Meh. I was never a big medieval programming guy, be it Lord of the Rings or shows like this. The language barrier was always a problem for me —*could never really get a hang of that twang to follow the show closely enough to realize what was really happening.

lol do you have something against doggy style? they showed like 3 sexual encounters and two of them were with "dothraki savages." that's how they roll.

i guess you could say it was boring. no fighting or murders yet. it's following the book pretty damn close though so i was happy about that. there's a lot to flesh out.

There were 4 sexual encounters I believe. That one chick took it doggy from like 4 different dudes. Then Dave Navarro was about to hit the blonde from the back when she was crying, then there was that dude doing his doing his sister from behind in that tower at the end. The only sex that wasn't doggy style was when that midget was getting a blow job.

I think the show is great so far, have been a huge fan of the books since they came out and they're following the books fairly close which i like, it's an amazing story whith an amazing set of characters, show is very well made and most importantly the casting is fantastic. can't wait for the next episode. ppl who haven't read the books should read up a little on the different houses: stark, lannister, targaryen etc. and look at the geography of the world its set in, should only take 20 mins or so and you will appreciate the series so much more.
Also know that this story gets only better and better and better trust me.

It was a slow episode that was designed to add depth to the story.

I never read the books, so I have no idea who's supposed to be what, but they needed to slow it down. A lot happened in the first two episodes. Best to pull back on the reigns a bit and pace things.

I kinda disagree on one thing, this series definitly requires some work from the viewer. Tuning in for weeks, while it slowly unfolds and giving it a chance is what I consider work these days. It's not a series that "kicks ass" from episode one onwards. As a fan of the books, I was kinda embarassed how many sex scenes they had to put into the very first episode and there was no away around it, cause they are right there in the books.

05-02-2011, 07:29 PM
this episode was the least faithful to the books. they invented a lot of that character interaction. i don't think it was a bad episode. i just didn't care for it as much.

the next two are going to get things moving pretty quick from here on out.

i haven't had any casting gripes either, but barristan selmy and syrio forel were disappointing. barristan was the older knight that was talking to jamie and the king.

I actually like how much the show has slowed down. It's making getting into the characters a lot easier, and following (and appreciating) their individual stories even easier as well.

Episode 4 was fantastic to me. As I said after episode 3, every series needs this kind of "build"/depth.

It's a series, not a mini-series, so they have to pace themselves. You can't have major event-changing events in every single episode.

Agree completely, with the number of personalities and characters that needs to be built up to really make the story justice they need time to do that. Love the show, goes by in a blink of an eye though unfortunately.

What might have got past a casual viewers attention was, that the knight who died at the tournament was the dude Ned tried to interrogate. Such a coincidence :D

Ned = Eddard Stark, played by Sean Bean and he wanted to interrogate that Knight, cause he served the previous Hand of the King till his surprising death and was promoted to Knighthood right after the old Hand died.

If you have the ability go watch the behind the scenes episodes where they discuss the world and the different houses, lannister, stark etc and the smaller houses and the night watch as well, either that or go to some online site with info where you can get a brush up on who's who and what the world looks like, the show is so much more interesting when if you do that so you know all the time who's doing what and what's going on.

Disagree about the level of gore, this story is set in a brutal bloody world and in these kind of movies/series they need to show it with blood and guts and dirt and all for people to truly get a feel of what it was like to live in the world like that. I hate when there is a bunch of brutal knights fighting each other with spiked clubs, axes and great swords and all you see is maybe a drop of blood on someone. It's just not what it was like. when grown men go at each other with swords and axes it just gets plain nasty. Fantastic episode. I still have to pinch myself sometimes to realize it's true, I'm actually watching a superb quality version tv series of some of my favorite books of all time...amazing. Show goes by waayyyyyy too fast though...damn.

Implied gore is just as telling — see Se7en or the first Saw movie. You don't have to actually see someone get sliced in half by razor wire to understand after the fact just how gory the sight of it would be.

Had the shot with Tyrion smashing the attackers face in with the shield point been shot from below his waist like that, and had the end of the shield simply continued to get bloodier and bloodier, I'm fairly certain you'd have gotten the point, as would everyone have.

They're doing little things to add to the gore — like showing Jamie's dagger go through Ned's guard's eye, and watching his other eye twitch. That's the shit that's unnecessary to me, IMO.

Scene would have been just as effective had you seen the blade come out the back of his skull like you did in a later shot.

They did a similar thing with the Knight who the Hound's brother killed in the joust where not only did the wood go through his neck, but you had to watch the blood bubble and spill out of his neck, and then watch him slowly die. Too much.

Sure there might be instances like that where it get's very bloody, i didn't even notice the eye twitch tbh and wouldn't have cared if they didn't show that shot, but I'm very happy they are actually SHOWING the violence in this show, it's needed imo to fully get the raw taste of these times, yes implied violence can be used at times and should be used in times (for example you don't ever need to see a little child chopped to pieces etc) but a show like this that tells an extremely violent story during extremely violent times...noo...talking about beheading ppl isn't good enough and watching a whole fight where in the end a bunch of ppl lies piled on the ground but you never saw a blood drop or a limb cut off or a cut of any sort is just irritating to me, im not some kind of freak who loves blood but in these PARTICULAR movies/series set in medieval times etc it's just simply needed to paint a true portrait of the time. Sure....there's always a limit...maybe the twitching eye was going to far but in a case like this series i rather they go a bit too far than not far enough. I remember watching Braveheart in 1995 the first time in the movies and it was just an eye opener...you really get a taste of the violence and it enhanced the movie tenfold...not just a bunch of shiny knights fighting each other and killing ppl left and right with no blood whatsoever or even a scratched armor.

Well i said it was EASIER to get your message through and it sure is, my wife had no clue there was anything in between them until the shaving scene, she hasn't read the books, if you have read the books all little hints and such make sense because you know beforehand. Anyways, in series/movies like this there will ALWAYS be things that doesn't follow the book, simply because it is 2 different vehicles, a book is written and has certain advantages and the same with a movie/series on screen, they will use their media the way they feel best to portrait the story and will take some liberties at points to get a message through or for pure entertainment and sometime they will follow the book.

ok, i get you, but littlefinger did say "how long before you have your friend," to renly as well. it seemed pretty obvious to my GF who never read past the first book, which none of that is in.

i know i'm harping and the series is going along well, but when you have 10 episodes to do something i don't feel it's necessary to alter it that much. you're not trying to condense a 400 page book into 2 hours of screen time.

Shot over two days, the actual “Golden Crown” scene was filmed using a host of special effects and props.

Harry explained he had a “gold molded kind of silicon hat,” and some of the burning effects were put into his costume.

“I also had these fantastic [packs]… They look like they’d been made by Boy Scouts. There was this incredible kind of smoke pack on my front!” he explained.

Great episode this week again, aside from some little things I'd made different it was again perfect.
Probably would have left out that hunting scene, it's never mentioned in the book, just said he went hunting and seems a bit odd. A king goes hunting just with three other people? And boars of all animals? But well, maybe those other hunters were somewhere else in the wood.

Oh how I hated the end *lol*, curse your fucking honor Eddard Stark. Would it really been so bad to do what Renly suggested? Now Cersei rules and the realm will be chaos.

The scene in with Littlefinger and the whores really was stupid and as I guess meant to prepare the audience for his treason, but needless sex-scene again.
The scene with Jaime and his father was better, allthough not in the book as I remember, don't know why a lord would cut a deer himself though, in his own tent as well. lol

i never thought i'd say this, but those are actually starting to bother me. they really cheapen the story. littlefinger is supposed to be a little shady, but there's no need for him to come out and say. it works better if he just goes a long seeming like a friend until the end of the episode.

i think the whole tywin gutting the deer is obviously in your face symbolism as well as a way to show you that he doesn't fuck around. i liked that scene even though it wasn't in the book. up until then he's just a name, it's a good introduction.

H-Dreamer
05-31-2011, 06:18 AM
Yeah, the Tywin scene didn't bother me, I liked the symbolism of the Lannister-Lion cutting the fur of the Baratheon-deer. Add the words of Varys about Lancel supplying Robert with wine and I think many people got that Robert was murdered by Lions, not a boar.

When that Littlefinger-scene started I went into the kitchen and hoped it would be over when I returned :D, sadly it wasn't and I agree there was no need for him to speak about his reasons and his treason yet. Reduced the shock of his actions.

To me the value in shows like this is in the smaller twists and turns of the overall story-telling, not the most graphic scenes. In fact, I'd say there's more power in the less-graphic scenes by far.

Like Robb letting the Lannister spy go despite the law requiring he kill him only to ride back to tell Tywin Winterfell is coming for him. Incredible. Really doing a fantastic job of developing his character.

Same goes for the scene where Barristan was relieved of his command and threw down his sword before Joffrey, telling him to melt it down with the others.

im VERY happy they have taken their time to really tell this story the way it was meant, its a very intricate story with tons of characters and several storylines going on at several different places al at the same time....it would have been easy to just compress this story and fill every episode with action left and right but the story would have been raped and the end product would have been much less interesting.

Well we had male nudity, but you can't get everything you want I guess.:D

Robb had some strong scenes and the fight with Khal Drogo was epic, though I felt like they mashed several Danaerys-scenes together in that one. Well they had to cut some parts, to fit everything in ten episodes, I can live with that.
Aryas dancing teacher made me ask myself: You are great, but why didn't you pick up a real sword from the guys you beat?:confused:

Real Kudos (again) to the casting crew on Joffrey, I can't say it enough. The first time I saw his face I wanted to punch him, he hadn't said a word and still I hated him. lol Obviously because I knew what kind of person he is, still his facial expressions are amazingly fitting.

Dislike:
Joffrey: speaks for itself.
Cersei Lannister: fucked by her own blood, pressures the kids too much.
Sansa: traitor to her family, just wants the prince for his riches, ugh.

Honorable menton for Ned Stark: for being an idiot with all of his honour and good behaviour, should've joined the kid in the hallway's plan. What's the gay kid's name again?

Like:
Arya: for every reason; the cute, adventurous and brave little sister, she's awesome!
Littlefingers: can't help but love the guy and his clothing and whorehouses, he's a traitor, but an awesome one at that.
Jon Snow: the poor bastard kid, joins the Nightwatch and is honorable, true to a family that isn't truly his

Oh, and while look up the spelling of a name I think I accidentally caught a spoiler that blows my mind. I did never see that little lovely (*cough*) turn of events comin'.

pretty much the same minus robb. so far he has kind of been a meh character. i dont like or dislike him

And that bitch of a witch, which is a priestess serving Stannis Baratheon, both yet to be introduced to you with Season 2

My likes
Arya, running around killing people at age 8. lol
Danaerys
Jon Snow
Tyrion, don't want to leave him out.

And the name you're searching for is Renly Baratheon, Jules. Yes Ned should have joined him or bowed before Joffrey and go back north. Last thing the Realm needed was civil war between it's Lords.

True, there was no way to avoid this and have a story this good and long. The realm has to be divided, well actually it's more splintered into pieces, justb wait and see it unfold. :D
Still one can analyze what a person should have done. The amount of human stupidity shows again and again in this series and that's one of the things that makes it great. There is no unfailable character, they all make wrong assumptions and decisions all the time.
Well not ALL the time, but you get my point. :D

No, he isn't. Who his parents are is still in doubt, but one thing we know pretty sure. He is a Stark by blood. Ned keeps everything else a secret and there is probably just one other person who knows the truth, but he won't lie about that.Though there is a possibility that he isn't the father. In that version, his dead sister would be Jons mother, with an undisclosed father, which many think to be Rhaegar Targaryen (Danaerys other brother), which would make Jon of royal blood, which would lead back to my classical fantasy novel hero analogy

Yea I remember hearing about how Eddard's sister was kidnapped by a Targaryen (although I thought it was the mad king) so I kind of put 2 and 2 together. I dunno why I said son of robert baratheon. I guess I got the kings confused :rofl:

I don't care for that much, just another spoiled teenager dreaming of a princy Mr.Right. At start that is. That she still doesn't wake up after all what happened and stabbed her own sister in the back at the beginning of the series, those were the things I really hated about her.

Real Kudos (again) to the casting crew on Joffrey, I can't say it enough. The first time I saw his face I wanted to punch him, he hadn't said a word and still I hated him. lol Obviously because I knew what kind of person he is, still his facial expressions are amazingly fitting.

Really have to agree, the casting is flawless in this series...joffrey...arya...ned...tyrion...all of them are just perfect...

Again i never understood people that rate these kind of series/movies by episode to episode....it's one long story that is unfolded and cut into 10 pieces...it's the overall product that should be rated IMO. Ppl did the same thing with the Lord of the Rings movies and im like sigh....it's all just divided so we don't have to sit in the movies 10 hours or in front of the TV 10 hours...it's really just ONE LONG STORY...look at the whole picture....the episodes with less action and more personal stories are as important for the whole story as the action filled or shocking episodes...its all stones part of the same wall, you can't remove any of them or it all comes down.

My biggest curiosity is what influence Maester Aemon Targaryen's speech to Jon Snow is going to have on his choice to desert his Night's Watch post and head south to go into battle with his half-brother Robb.

Snow is no doubt being molded into a leader with the Watch, but that whole story Aemon gave him about seemingly regretting the choice to never have left when he had the chance to save his own family isn't going to be taken lightly, I'd imagine.

The speech was more about knowing how Jon feels I think. At least it was in the book, cause allthough he somewhat regreted his own decision he did hold his oath and in the end that's what expected from Jon too.

By the way, with Robb being the son of his father, Jon can't be sure he wouldn't be executed as a deserter, half-brother or not. ;)

Well as far as I know US-Paperback is shitty quality, compared to our Paperback. One of my teachers during off the job training back when I started working as a bookseller once told us in class, that many americans remember at which point they are in a Paperback by ripping out the pages they already read and throwing them away.

Really? Just the opposite for me. It's the paperback I have a harder time with because You end up having to crease the spine to get the book to stay open. The hardcover IMO does the work for you (so long as you pull the stupid dust jacket off).
