The blood is way over the top this season. Distracting and annoying instead of good stylistic choice (not that it was ever really THAT great to begin with).
Story was meh. Glad they're getting to Crassus.
I was trying to determine if I was underwhelmed or if it has an unreasonable standard to be held to.
That being said, it is pretty damn hard to keep other things going in addition to total ****ing war. I think it is sound to focus singularly on the war aspect because it is such a major piece of the puzzle. It is just a dissent from previous seasons.
I noticed the blood was a little overdone also, but I imagine it and the tits are selling a huge portion of the viewership, so I don't anticipate that going away.
I'm going to get to the end strictly because the first season was good enough to watch it through. Sucks that Andy couldn't be around for it though. He was a better fit than the new guy.
