[Official] Game of Thrones Ep. 1.01 Discussion

"Winter is Coming"


09:00PM

Discuss the latest Game of Thrones episode here


Image


A Night’s Watch deserter is tracked down outside of Winterfell, prompting swift justice by Lord Eddard “Ned” Stark and raising concerns about the dangers in the lawless lands north of the Wall. Returning home, Ned learns from his wife Catelyn that his mentor, Jon Arryn, has died in the Westeros capital of King’s Landing, and that King Robert is on his way north to offer Ned Arryn’s position as the King’s Hand. Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea in Pentos, Viserys Targaryen hatches a plan to win back the throne, which entails forging an allegiance with the nomadic Dothraki warriors by giving its leader, Khal Drogo, his lovely sister Daenerys’ hand in marriage. Robert arrives at Winterfell with his wife, Queen Cersei, and other members of the Lannister family: her twin brother Jaime, dwarf brother Tyrion and Cersei’s son and heir to the throne, 12-year-old Joffrey.

All I can say is, "Guuuuuuuuuuuuuh!" It was, at least so far, a near-flawless adaptation of the first book. It was as though it had come straight from my head. TOTAL GEEKGASM.

I come to this show a virgin, having not read the books nor read the spoilers. One mere hour into it and...

Ruthlessness. Cruelty. High-skilled conning. Goriness. Castles, kings, queens. Bright blue eyed beheaders in the harsh winter. Incest. A lovely kid. Adorable wolf cubs. Violence, death... deaths, I mean. Cute accents, mind-puzzling names. Unforgettable scenery.

But still, ruthlessness, cruelty, goriness, lies, scheming, gray shades, dense, complicated.

Count me in. :thumbup:

Liked it :D Started of AMAZING! Kinda bore towards the middle. I'll carry on watching it because overall I thought it was OK. :D Cheapened by the amount of sex orientated scenes/dialogues. That **** me off a bit. The end shocked me, wtf is that man pushing that kid out the window hole area thing? Bastard :cursing: slightly harsh....

Also, why the hell was there a dwarf having an orgy?
THAT AIN'T RIGHT!

It's just that, having read the novels myself, I was expecting to watch all the thing you commented. That's why I asked :)

Have to agree with Jack, it started off amazingly well but then seemed to settle into a normal battle for kingdom affair pretty quickly. Hate, hate, HATE that guy from Eastenders :cursing: The dwarf was annoying, Terminator lass looked freaky with blonde hair and the ousted 'King' and his sister's plot made me :roll: more than once.


Had better be a bloody good battle soon tbh :x

yeah, what sandi said basically - I loved how it looked, they are making great use of HD tbh - the midget is meant to be an unsavoury character, so I guess he played it well :-/
I did like the kids in it though, and I thought the wolf was quite a good actor, especially when he was at the bottom of the tower looking up at the end. I hope Bran didn't squish him :D ....

It was all straight out of the book. So if you don't like all the sex, give it up. ;) There will be plenty more. As for Tyrion, "the Imp," he's a really interesting character in the book, and think he'll be the same on-screen.

Rosa, don't worry. Summer (Bran's direwolf cub) is fine. :D
