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...

It's kind of nice because instead of going in blind.....I have something visual to go back to while reading through each chapter. Plus I can now pick out the stuff they left out of the show.

Ha, yea that's what I did too. Figured there's no way I'll remember what color the guy's tunic is so I'll just skim it.

Martin goes into rediculous detail. Though I have noticed the scenes in the show play out very similarly to how I picture it while reading.

A little disappointed that the battle of the Fist between the Night's Watch and the wights happened off screen at the beginning of the episode. I understand they have serious budget constraints, but they are going to have to show a big battle scene eventually and that one could have kicked ass.

Glad the show is back though.

Would have been good to see at least some part of the battle with the wights and others there, but they did do the big battle at the end of last season, so I'm okay if they keep their cgi budget for the dragons, giants, direwolves, etc. We may even get some mammoth sightings!

GRRM can get pretty detailed. Of course he is also quite subtle and if you go to the fan websites (Tower of the hand, or Westeros.org) after you read the books, you will be astonished at the details you skimmed over and the things you missed, and how they play a role in the books. I don't think anyone could catch everything on a first reading (I certainly didn't), so the websites really help on that front.

I find it hilarious that their budget, after the first two amazingly successful seasons, is still constrained. It's ridiculous, this show is one of the best on television. HBO needs to buck up and take the ride, because they only have 2 more seasons worth of material if GRRM doesn't get his shit together and get his books done you're going to be left with no show material for awhile.

They still have to make a profit.

And it could be argued that the show has been phenomenal on the constrained budget for 2 seasons, why can't it remain phenomenal?

Well they clearly spent well on the CGI for the giant in the wildling camp and for the dragons in this episode. I thought they both looked great. They should be able to do a lot more of that (and will need to as the story progresses), so they really can't use up too much on a battle scene in the first episode. At this point there's a lot of CGI going into it with dragons, giants, Others, direwolves, battles, locations, flaming swords, zombies, etc. As the magical elements increase, the budget does as well, so they have to be a little judicious in how they spend it.

**** that. This show is making them 100s of millions with all the merch included. As walking dead they should be spending the money.

And I thought tywin and tyrion was boss. And the red lady saying she burnt his son.

Yeah.

Different issue with me. I had a conflict with 3 things recording at the same time. Cancelled something else to record GoT. Checked yesterday afternoon to make sure. Still didn't record.

I do appreciate his attention to detail though, it translates very well into the show.

Watched the episode again and I'm pretty sure Daenerys understands what the slave master is saying about her by the way she subtly reacts to his statements (and the girl's rephrasing). Someone who read the books would know, but does she know that language?
