^ That's a massive spoiler for those who haven't read the books.

Belwas, though fun, is unnecessary. Selmy can easily cover his plot points.

Perhaps I'm a bit hard to please, but I think I would've enjoyed it more if they'd advanced the plots of 1 or 2 characters more than just try and give a little for everyone.

Still, it sets things up nicely which I suppose is what the start of the season needs.

*******? Checked.
Violence? Checked.
Recap of last season? Checked.

All in all, slightly slow but a nice continuation of the series.

A little saddened how they handled the battle at the beginning. I understand that there's more important things to spend budget on but it would've been nice to at least even see a few pan away shots of corpses, the aftermath of the battle, really, anything other than black screen and screaming. Otherwise, an excellent opening episode, really loved the scenery and felt that it brought life to a lot of settings (where as Season 2 at times felt closed in).

Hence the spoiler tag... can we not get into this again?

Goddamn I love that midget. He's the best character on TV ever.


Omar is #1. Stringer Bell is top 10. Midget's top 20.

Pass. Violence on TV is worthless. The Walking Dead proves it.

Develop the story. Keep the hottie ass Khalissi in frame and for god sake get rid of Joffery. And show his fiancee's ****.

How about just keep spreading them further and further apart until they hang out of her armpits?

I'm wondering if they will include Strong Belwas as a character.

Not even the best midget character, Harvey.

Varys and Littlefinger are both great actors, but they really stuff way too much Littlefinger into the show. Varys and Littlefinger are good characters b/c of the mystery that surrounds them, not because they're on every page.

Jaime and Brienne should be in a lot of scenes this year.

If it's anything like the battle at the end of Season 2 with 30 or so actors, I'll pass. They completely screwed that one up.

Yeah, they have been showing Littlefinger a little too much lately although I don't get quite the same feeling with Varys (and I just finished re-watching S1 & S2). One of my favourite scenes in the entire series is Varys and Ned in the dungeon pretty much just talking. He literally is my favourite character.

I've never seen the point of showing massive battlescenes and destruction when the vast majority of it would be CG. I much prefer their less is more approach.

I'm happy with the less is more approach, but when something is meant to be a huge battle with thousands of people on either side, it's a bit **** to cut it down to a few dozen people. Either cut those scenes out or do them properly, don't half arse them.
