    I have to admit, I was expecting some boring etherial model-type for the role of Catelyn, mostly because that sort of casting is pretty standard for Fantasy TV.

    But Michelle Fairley's Catelyn looks like someone that's had 5 kids, but is still quite youthful and fetching. Plus she's great in the role. That's more important than looking like fan art, y'know?
    Those aren't real problems, Sam.

    Yeah, but Caitlin was supposed to be quite a beauty in her day. . .I don't really get that feeling about Michelle Fairey. But like I said. . her acting was fine. . . And I really don't care for Caitlin as a character anyways. . .so no real loss.

    Ohhhh. . .I like the banner and the Greyjoy quote there. I always liked their house motto. . . "We Do Not Sow" Did you ever get a Chthulu feeling from that religion?

    Who was the queen shagging at the end? Was that her brother?

    Yeah dude. . . .that was indeed.

    And half-watch? Trust me man. . if you have not read the books, you will need to follow it a bit closer than that. there are a LOT of characters and a LOT of seperate plots to keep up with.

    No... I just wasn't sure if I'd missed something RE that relationship, hence had to double check... And ewwwww!

    Wasn't as impressed as I hoped I was going to be... But I'll give it a few more episodes happily!

    I do indeed, ther sigil is a big ass Kraken after all

    Since you watched it now Neil I can mention the part I'm not too happy about:

     
    Near the end when Drogo and Daenerys consumate the wedding, it seemed awfuly forced where in the book Drogo was actually tender to her, spending most of the time exploring her body.

    That bugged me a bit as well. . . .it seemed like they kinda cut it to make it look more forced. . . they may be going with a different dynamic between those two in the show.

    Odd you say that, because that's the way I was expecting the scene to play out? (I've not read the book)

    Joffrey had it coming.

    That and so much more.

    Joffrey's a spoiled little shit - he's like Draco Malfoy without the warmth.
    Those aren't real problems, Sam.
