I only saw the first 3 episodes, but the Queen didn't seem so stupid, at least up until the end of ep3. Seems to me she's being built up as kind of like a Livia from I, Claudius.
Did she do something that I missed in the first 3? Or did she just get stupid in ep 4?
Nevermind, I don't want to know. I am forgoing the show for the book right now, don't want it spoiled.
I haven't enjoyed reading fantasy so much since I was 13 reading Terry Brooks' Sword of Shannara Trilogy.
