Probably this isn’t the screenshot you should be expecting for Game of Thrones. But for the screenshot you are expecting you wouldn’t visit this blog. What can I say about this season? Well, if you already watched it, you know the more dramatic episode is the ninth. If you didn’t watch it yet, you should also know the more dramatic episode is the ninth.
Regarding the story, it didn’t evolve much after the previous season. Well, except for the ninth episode. Other than that, things went kind of smoothly.
The final of the season is not as extraordinary as the first season (hope I am not confusing seasons), but not bad as well.
First, yes, probably. I know some of you want me to read the books (first or instead). I am sorry to disappoint, but it is too late to read them first or instead, and I am not sure if I will read them at all. That will be another issue.
Now, on this series comment: violence, violence, blood, violence, boobs, violence, violence, blood, violence, boobs. The good thing is that the ratio of boobs is good enough to keep watching. Yes, I am half kidding. Sometime the series betray us. We are too used to the Hollywood movie type, where heroes do not die. Here, everybody die. When you think somebody will stand up, he will die. When you think somebody will die, yes, surely he will die.
Something that is clear from the first episode but starts being more and more clear, and completely clear in the last episode of the first season, is that we should not be relating the story with our past, with the medieval era, or something. This is not just a fiction series, but mostly, a fantasy series.
The first thing that come to my mind to describe this first episode is, sex, violence and sex. Not bad. Just one episode is not enough to tell what the story is. So far, the usual medieval thing, kings, fights, interest marriages, etc. Given the name of the series, and this first episode, it seems that will be the story. A standard medieval story.
But then, there are some interesting things. Not just the pretty girls, the boobs or the sex. But having some kind of tribe that kills people in a way Dexter would like to do, is cool. Now, let us see the next episodes, for a final season review.
