eh honestly...it wasnt that good. Too little time honestly spent with most people. Tyrion and Dany only get any real time.

I think the show should really only have 2-3 focus characters per episode. Robb Stark essentially has a cameo in this episode just for the sake of appearing.

I don't mind that, and they did that last season as well. Some characters will get more screen time in episodes than others. It is near impossible to do otherwise without getting all the story in.

That whole interaction between Tyrion and Tywin was one of the very big highlights of that episode.

Sure it would have been nice to se the battle between the Watch and the Others, but we know the show doesn't have the money for that. All of the main players for this season appeared. The second episode can reestablish the secondary plotlines. This season already has a brisk pace compared to the first two.

I thought the episode did what it was suppose to do, set up the season. From what I read, the first two episodes set things up and then big things happen in 3 and 4.

The first half of Season 3 looks to be a little flat just like the book - then it heats up. Solid episode but could have been better.

Post Re: Game of Thrones:Season 3
the problem with GoT is that its a show that really doesn't work as an episode-to-episode thing anymore. First season worked like that mainly because the scope was much more limited and there was a central character of sorts with Ned.

Once the scope has expanded and there really is a lack of one central focus, it's hard to have individual episodes shine. The only individual episode last year that really stood out was of course Blackwater and that was mainly because they kept that episode focus on one event mostly.

Part of me honestly wants to just wait till the season is over and binge watch all 10 episodes on one day. But the show has become such a pop-culture phenomenon that it's hard not to resist watching week to week with everyone else.

Stop hating on the Game. The hating should be reserved for Homeland and the Walking Dead that truely deserve it.

i mean, homelands a joke at this point. TWD is what it is. It has few moments of greatness with a lot of dullness. I think both those shows have reached their potential.

GoT though I think can go down as one of the best shows ever made (this is mostly reliant on the fact as to whether the show will finish and whether GRRM will actually finish the books ahead of the show). But it still doesn't change the fact that its become much more a show that works on a binge-watching level than a week-to-week.

Thrones is good, but to me it's in the group with Homeland, Dexter, Justified as just having a gear short, of what a Breaking Bad or Mad Men has. Difference between a great show and a masterpiece.

Very true. It neds to be watched in one season block at a time but it's hard to do now that the show is such a hit. Personally, as a long time fan of the books I enjoy the show but rank it behind the likes of Mad Men and Boardwalk as a show. But maybe part of that is because I know what's going to happen.

Great episode, better than last week but that was partly because we finally get Arya, Bran, and Jamie scenes. They were all great, and I just love character of Ayra Stark, and Thoros of Myr didn't disappoint. The introduction of the Queen of Thorns was cool and Diana Rigg was amazing in that scene. Not sure where they are going with Theon, as long as it isn't endless torture scenes.

I don't like the 180 they did on Catelyn about Jon Snow. It just feels different from the book. I look forward to next week's episode because the second episode was rather boring. Also, I hope that Theon story change will go somewhere since it deviates much from the book.

I didn't mind the change with her because it doesn't make her look as bad. I always thought Martin made her seem a little too harsh there. I think they have to do something different with Theon, otherwise it will get either very boring or violent.

I did think it was funny that Gendry called out Arya for not sending Jaquin of to kill Tywin. It was a huge mistake on her part.

All the new characters introduced this episode were aces. Olenna, Jojen, and Thoros. Among the older characters, Margeary is quickly becoming a favorite. If all 10 episodes were released at once, I'd sit through all 10-straight hours. :upsidedown:

And can you believe the actor playing Joffrey is 20 years old?! It wasn't until I read a recent article that I always guessed he was 15 or 16 years tops.

They are doing a great job hiding his age. Too bad Bran has sprouted up, he looks much older than last season, Arya looks about the same, and I wouldn't want to change her. She is a great young actress.

This episode was just about perfect. Much much better than the last. Nothing misses really.

Post Re: Game of Thrones:Season 3
IMO, I thought it was probably the worst episode that they have in the series so far. Too many deviations on the episode as I mentioned and we didn't even get Butterbumps performing "Bear and Maiden Fair" during the Sansa confession to Olena.

I hate how they give too much screen time to Shae and Margerey in the show when their presence was much smaller in the books. From the way the show is going, I sense a big deviation once again with Shae's ongoing affair with Sansa in the show. I hope god they don't do this.

Spoiler: show
Having Shae subbing in for Sir Dontos during Sansa's escape from the purple wedding thus ruining another arc about Shae betraying Tyrion in the court.

Actually I don't think they will change that. I suspect
Spoiler: show
Roz will be taking Dontos place. Shae doesn't trust Littlefinger, although Roz doesn't right now but that could change since she works for him

Interesting as I thought this was one of the best episodes of the series so far.

In regards to Shae (and Ros) I agree to an extent,
Spoiler: show
though I really couldnt care less if they use Dontos or not but I doubt they will use Shae to sub in (I hope not anyway). She needs to be with Tywin...

I think Shae will betray Tyrion because of him marrying Sansa. They have kind of set that up in this episode. So far, Dontos part has been replaced with Littlefinger, the only question is will they use somebody to help Sansa escape and then kill. I think Ros is possible there.
