Game of Thrones [2]

Post by halfwise on Tue Jun 28, 2016 10:08 pm

It's been a bit of both. But to take a stand-out final scene from the books that nobody could forget and walk right past it was egregious.

They somewhat made up for it with Varys' line "who ever said anything about 'him'?" But that was only a slight redemption. And they blew it by not cutting the scene after that line.

Kevan was not important in the show so they didn't give him the dialogue, they cant waste time on secondary characters they only have an hour per episode.

Well that's like saying, "Sorry, we were so busy baking anchovy casseroles that we didn't have time to make any lasagna".

(And speaking of my American-ness being called into question!! Mad I guess I just had a healthier-than-average childhood. Or maybe they don't have Cheez-Whiz or whatever out in California or Minnesota. I mean I've heard of sprayable cheese before, they have sort of thing in food stores I think. Or at least it shows up in movies.)

Speaking of Game of Thrones, I really liked the music from this last episode. It stood out and was used excellently well to build tension and set emotions. 

I was rather frustrated by the sudden appearance of a certain serving-girl and her meat-filled flaky baked food items. It seems incongruous, or at least wasteful, that she should spend two whole seasons over you-know-where and then make her way somewhere else-of-which-you-know in absolutely 0 screen time.

I don't think she needed any screen time. We knew she was going a couple of episodes back... all sorts has gone on in between then and she already had her transport sorted.

The Varys bit would have made sense if they had built Kevan up to be a central power player but he was always a background character that only seemed to turn up to tell Cersei she was stupid. I don't think that scene was lost at all for that reason, in fact I think it wouldn't have been impactful because of that.

The only characters that had any depth to them in the show are the ones they had time to focus on and it is argueable they focused on the wrong ones or had too many as it was.

Lasagna is filling and makes you bloated, so its better to leave it off the menu. silent Laughing

I do agree that some characters seem to have jet-packs, but when you think about it most of the time travelling is pretty boring, I am sure even in Westeros its possible to travel without anything interesting happening, and I am sure people would complain if they wasted valuable screen time on watching Arya walk from Essos to Westeros. We just have to use our imaginations and imagine that they have spent a barrel load of time just plodding, eating, drinking and sleeping. Also if we watched Arya on her travels to The Twins it would have really spoiled the dramatic *drum roll* pie scene.

figg, i don't think littlefinger sowed a seed of jealousy in Sansa. I think the last one was just the last attempt to win her over to his side, and be his. but his motivation is the iron throne and a very unhealthy obsession over sansa. sansa on the other hand has great fate in Jon and i think that smirk was just like " i told you so, i am no longer poor-little-sansa". 

also the reason she didn't say anything about little fingers army was because she knew jon would fall for ramsays trap and if he had all the power to begin with he would still make the same mistake and they would most definitely lose.

cheers Wave hiya Norclet.
Well I certainly hope so, because LF will never get the Iron Throne and I really doubt she wants to sit next to him. I reckon she is just biding her time and then bye bye LF.

As I had mentioned at the time, I stopped watching after episode four, but my mom still watches it and since I've been at her place this week I did see the finale with her. I read all the synopses for the episodes I missed real quick and relied on the "previously on" segments, though obviously that's not the same as actually watching them. I thought it was alright, an enjoyable enough hour spent with company, but it didn't re-spark my interest to watch the rest of the season.

I am really curious how they're going to handle the endgame in the final ~13 episodes, though.

I've seen a few clips on YouTube. Those have been enough to satisfy my morbid curiosity.

GOT S7 likely to premiere later than April so that the cast and crew have more time to film during the winter months.
