whizbangthedirtfarmer: So, having watched only the first season, is it official that the show has jumped the shark, or is it still of decent quality?


You summer child.


The second season was better than the first -- even though they decapitated the main character of the first season.

The Battle on the Blackwater was one of the best pieces of television you'll ever see and Arya Stark is a gem of a character.

And Peter Dinklage still rocks.

Isuldirs: stupiddream: Sorry, no. Read the 5th book.

MAJOR SPOILERS: Do not read if you haven't read book 5!! You have been warned.

Do you think he actually dies, or will be miraculously saved in book 6?


Saved, there's way to much foreshadowing about him to just die off AND the whole "man turned into a wolf and back again" vision Melisandre sees. On top of Melisandre being a red preist who can bring people back and the whole prologue being devoted to wargs living through their animals when they die.

Re-read the entire series. There's more than enough evidence (and more than one way) for Jon to... get things done.

Cythraul: NeoCortex42: Cythraul: It's really hard to play favorites on this show. Even the blonde haired Targaryon girl, who was starting to get a bit stale, started to get her mojo back by the end of the second season.

Her storyline was the biggest waste of time for most of the season. They just really didn't have much for her to do.
Also,

Too bad we didn't get to see the visions in the tower from the book. Although I guess that would have been difficult to show in the series while still being vague enough to not give things away.

I'm not sure what you mean by 'visions in the tower' since I have not read the books. But she does go to the warlock tower.

She goes to the warlock tower to get her dragons back, and there she sees a vision of the throne room with the roof all melted away and snow falling in through the now opened ceiling. I"m assuming this is foreshadowing that she might raise her dragons, and assault the capital city (which I can't remember the name of). Is this one of those visions that you're thinking of?

If not, I guess I don't want to know exactly what you mean. I'd rather not read the books and keep season 3 unspoiled.



SPOILER SPOILER OF FUTURE PREDICTION THEORY

The "snow" is Jon Snow, the true heir, as he is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. The dragon has 3 heads. Ned Stark's promise to his dying sister. She died in childbirth.(bed of blood) No way in hell that Jon is Ned's son. Jon Snow will be on the Iron Throne in the end.

R Kelly's Doo Doo Butter: boochini: Looks like we have our drummer for the Red Wedding...

My thoughts exactly. If not the Red Wedding than that other important wedding that happens to feature a shiat load of performers.



I'm absurdly excited for the Pig vs. Dog joust.

Yeah, seems like a no-brainer.

But here's the joke: The musicians at that wedding were supposed to play poorly, so they got the drummer from Coldpay.

What the hell are you yabbering on about? It is the gold standard of quality television, and it just finished its best season to date. Whatever's the opposite of jumping the shark, it is doing exactly that.

Cythraul: This is one of my few complaints, the near constant need to show nudity by the director(s). I've even heard there were scenes of gratuitous nudity in the television series that weren't even written in the book. I don't think it's been toned down much in the second season, but the writing, acting, and direction are so well done, it becomes a minor issue that I can overlook.


Its the gratuitous nudity that is the problem. Not the beheadings, demons, burning soldiers, the incest, baby dragons burning mages alive ... no ... its that there is too much nudity.

If he was cast as a drummer, I think I can guess his cameo.

"And who are you," the proud lord said,
"That I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
That's all the truth I know."

"In a coat of gold, or a coat of red,
A lion still has claws.
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
As long and sharp as yours."

And so he spoke, and so he spoke
That Lord o'Castamere.
But now the rains sweep o'er his halls
With no one there to hear.

Yes now the rains, weep o'er his halls
With not a soul to hear.

I'm continually amused that the adaptation is so faithful that the primary complaints about the series are essentially identical to the most common complaints about the books: the sex scenes are excessive/gratuitous, the Daenerys storyline is a waste of time for the first couple books/seasons, the starks not named Arya are really boring, they killed my favorite character, etc.

There's a lot to be said about staying that close to the source material, as someone that liked the books I'm really enjoying it.

I had stayed away from this show. Then they put both seasons up on Xfinity On-Demand. So I watched both seasons over the course or 4 or 5 days. Now... I've got to sit here in agony till what, April next year or later? HBO subscription in my future. Let this be a warning kids, Game of Thrones is powerful stuff not to be played around with.
