  • 'Cause this is thriller, thriller night...

  • Really, what's happening here?

    So, this show is fast becoming a pastiche of itself.

    .

    You know what's going to happen. The bad guy/gurl will get their way a few times and then just when they think they are going too far and they'll get caught out, they will get their way one last time, before smiling to themselves and then....

    .

    I'm rapidly losing interest in the girl without the dragons any more. What is going on? Marching on-wards with dragons breathing fire, conquering cities left right and centre but has ended up in some dull politics stuff that you could fast forward through without missing much.

    .



    Actually, thinking about it, you could fast forward through most of this season an not have missed anything. What are they waiting for in the North before riding on Winterfell?

    .

    Then there's the whole Bran / Tree thing which has been forgotten about completely.

    .

    And talking a bout forgotten things. Seriously, what has happened the the f%&@*^g white walkers? Are they...... Lost? (you see what I did there?)moreless
  • Its Only the best show since Breaking Bad went bad.

    9.0
    Great show, great acting. People that say that its went downhill in series 5 are way off the mark, they do get that the show builds to the awesome bits and i have been entertained by every episode. After every single show i am always left wanting more. Which tells you that its a great show what would be the point if every episode was just all action and no story. The writers have me hooked and I care one way or another about every character and even having you constantly questioning your previous thoughts on characters. Its hard for the writers to include whats happening to each character in every show but because of the large and varied cast and story lines this is a good thing as we get deep into each character and their motivations even if we have to wait a few weeks between seeing certain characters.moreless
  • It's a plot, in a plot, wrapped in a larger plot, that's based on a historical plot with the addition of dragons and snowmen

    5.0
    Great acting, but episodes are convoluted. I was a fan of the books until the books did what the show is doing now, fell apart. All the most fascinating characters are going to die, story arcs and people are going to just disappear and be left in limbo, new characters are going to magically pop up and begin new plots out of nowhere, and we are going to be left with the same chosen characters, no real answers, and an ending that will surly be disappointing. I am frustrated with this series both book and TV, it's becoming an episode of Lost. You want a really entertaining story? Research the War of the Roses, the historical event that GOT is based on. Way more interesting, and you won't have to wait twelve years to find out how it ends.moreless
  • Good but sloooow!!!!

    8.0
    I must admit I have been slightly taken in by GOT. I love most of the cast, especially the bad guys. never has a show provoked such a strong reaction in me in relation to the baddies. Really some superb acting.

    My problems with the show are in it's pace and storytelling. Now don't get me wrong I am a major fan of intelligent writing and thought provoking characters with many layers. However it takes a long time for nothing to happen at times. I am currently on S2 ep9 and not a whole lot has happened in this series. lots of drawn out conversations between characters and little else. Whilst i appreciate it's all building up to a bigger picture it can get very frustrating at times. I can find myself tuning out at times then when I snap back in I found I have not missed much at all.

    Like I said a very good show in a lot of aspects but it's as I suspected, a tad over-rated.moreless
  • SWIM, WUN WUN, SWIM!

    Game of Thrones "Hardhome" Review: Winter Is Here, and We're All Screwed

    A fight that was a long time coming showed that petty arguments over a chair should be shelved for a bit.
