I actually thought it was a very poor premier, to be honest. Especially, given that the season only has seven episodes. I hope e2 makes up for that in a big way.

Yeah, can't help but agree.  Maybe I've just become an edgelord in the time off, but the acting really seemed poor.

Have you seen the theories it's not even Arya, it's Jaqen as Arya.

That seems even more dumb than the usual internet stupidity.

Hard to tell it was an hour long video on the theory and i only heard about 5 mins before i fell asleep.

GJ was saying much the same to me yesterday. Poor writing leads, in part I'm sure, to poor acting.

Oh, no doubt.  As the saying goes, "you can't make a cake out of shit."

Or so I think it is a real saying...

I guess then you arrive at the question, "but who would want to eat it?"

The answer is "probably someone."

Well, I think the second episode was better, but still, barely anything has happened and we are technically a 1/4 the way through the season, right?  (Just looked it up, there are only actually 7 this season, not 8...)

It's fucking terrible. I don't actually watch TV (apart from real life shit, occasional sporting events and MMA/boxing) so this is the first time i've watched a show since LOST finished. Every scene dragged on and on. They have literally no material it seems like, Martin probably told them the waypoints, and that's all they have.

Yeah, I am willing to bet there is going to be at least one more episode that is basically all just "set-up filler" up next too.

GoT is going to nowhere, for now it's a very disappointing season.

I hope the destruction of Yara's fleet is going to kick us off quickly for the rest of the season.

Also, almost cried with Arya and Nymeria.

Tonight shit better kick off. Well, I mean, I won't watch it until tomorrow or Tuesday but the reviews and synopses I read better sound lit. Where's all the money being spent, HBO?! One CGI Nymeria (who doesn't even care about Arya anymore :'() and some long-shots of Dragons...

I'll admit using a real pack of trained wolves for Nymeria's entourage was also great. Maisie Williams has poise and courage.

Even Euron's excellent use of fire, battering boats on water, and his crazed axe rampage were poorly shot. Give your shaky cam back to The Blair Witch Project.

That is all ;).

You didn't lose anything interesting. And now surely we have to endure the Jon meets Dany bullshit...
