Game of Thrones (spoiler-free zone)

A few have suggested it, might as well test the waters. The idea is to give people who haven't read the books a safe place to talk about the show.

A few quick ground rules:
  • No Spoilers!!!!! for upcoming episodes.
  • Larger Song of Ice and Fire discussion should be limited to the other thread although I think a tiny bit of book delving to fill in holes should be okay (example of this would be talking about Catelyn and her treatment of the wolves in the novel, which was alluded to on TV but never really made clear...)
  • Everything that happened that week is fair game once an episode airs. So if you don't watch on Sunday night, I'd stay outta here until you do...

I wasn't really feeling the dragon scene. It started off cool then kind of cheesed out there at the end. I'm not sure how else they could have pulled that off if it indeed happened that way in the book, but it came across kind of silly in a Never Ending Story (awesome movie as a kid in '84) kind of way to me.

I actually think that scene was better in the book, or at least more impactful to me, maybe because I wasn't expecting it. But it was cooler in my mind's eye than it actually looked on screen. I agree with above, actually seeing a her fly off on the dragon looked a little bit cheesy. But still a good scene, it certainly rescued Dany's story arc in the book as it was a little boring up until that point.

You have to give props to the TV crew. I think most book readers think the changes have made the TV version much better. The book went on and on about Stanis trekking through the snow. Deanery's dealing with politics in Mereen etc.

They still need to improve on showing the bad assness that were the Sand Snakes and the unsullied in the books.

OK...haven't read the books. I've seen movies and crap where they are using dragon scales for armor and whatnot. I cannot tell you how disappointed I was at the ease with which Drogon could be hurt. a real WTF moment for me! really pissed me off. come ON! he's a frigging dragon man!

also...how cool would it have been if several harpys were holding Dany and Drogo just blasted the shit out of them! woulda been sofa king cool AND she'd be nude. missed opportunity.

also....Dany jumps on Drogo...he takes flight...and...they fly away! dammit! at least one fly by woulda been in order.


EDIT - is Drogo full sized now? or will he get bigger? asking you book readers. I ASS-U-ME he must not be full grown since spears pierce him so easily.....maybe he gets his big boy spear deflecting scales when his balls drop?

Young dragon. Very, very young dragon. At least that's what I'm hoping.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that we won't be seeing any new shots of Dany naked, partially or otherwise. I think her contract was revised to reflect that after season 2 or 3 or something.


Yeah, found it.

Quote:
Daenerys, as portrayed by Emilia Clarke, has been getting naked on screen since all the way back in "Game of Thrones" season 1, when it was kind of creepy, because her character was so young. By "Game of Thrones" season 3, it got kind of creepy for an entirely different reason: it happened really distressingly often. There's a lot of nudity in "Game of Thrones," but the Khaleesi naked had become an incredibly common sight. And as Emilia Clarke became more well known as an actor, she decided - reasonably enough - to end it. The "Game of Thrones" season 3 finale offered the last naked Daenerys you're ever going to get.

Dragons can live like 200 years.

Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion are maybe 3 (?). They've got a lot of growing to do.
