Hey hey Mru!!been a LONG time since we've conversed online. How have you been?
@JZ-- Wooop! Now get to season 2 quickly and then gush away
Thanks for the article...i don't know about the comparison to Indian politics but I do agree with his point about this being better and badder than LoTR. It is like a soap opera...but instead of women going at each other for the their common LOWE interests, here we have EVERYONE going at everyone for either the Iron throne or revenge and stuff. It is definitely the best fantasy drama that has ever hit American TV in a long time.
@nudity-- lol it pops up when you first watch it but then you get acclimated...or in get used to ignore it. LOL you guys should see that SNL spoof about GoT and the nudity stuff
oh Andy Samberg!
@Mru--- lol @ Dragon Lady
. Yeah Dany's storyline has been meh up until now and that's what i keep hearing from critics and personal reviews from people. The book apparently has more to her story and like Mazzy said her story take the forefront in the coming season (which is based off of book 3), so lets see what happens. I liked her thing in the finale too like Mazzy as compared to entire season of meh-ness.
@TYRION--- Heck Yeah! he's definitely THE BEST character and Peter Dinklage is AWESOME in his portrayal of the character.
What a character and what an actor! It's SO much fun watching Tyrion in all his glory and with all his wit/sarcasm and it was SO heart-rending to see him like so in the finale. His scene with Shae was definitely one of my favorite in the finale episode. I liked Shae's character too and Tyrion-Shae relationship but I definitely liked the fact that Tyrion declined the offer to "runaway." He's a scarred man right now but he's only going to emerge stronger. Go Half-Man indeed!
@Tyrion-Varys---- WORD Mazzy. I liked their scenes in season two and especially the one before the battle of Blackwater and the one in the finale. Varys is such a mysterious character and it's difficult to decipher which side is he on or that he's just playing along for his own benefit (which is probably the case) and the actor plays it so darn well too.
@Littlefinger--- I too liked that scene with Sansa in the finale and especially the line "look around you, we are all liars and better than you." I think because of his history with Lady Stark and the fact that Sansa "looks" like Lady Stark, there's got to be some sort of pull towards her...to get her out of there. But I don't know...may be i'm just reading too much in to it.
@Tywin-Arya-- Oh yeah I loved these two too. I don't like Tywin because of what he did to Tyrion but I did like his scenes with Arya. It felt as if he knew exactly who she was and more so because he kept on question her about where she was from, about her father and the fact that his father was a learned man despite the class he belonged to. by the way, I couldn't help but LOL @ Tywin's horseback ride in to the Throne room as Joeffery bestowed the title of the Hand of the King on to him...lol Tywin's got swagger...HORSE SWAGGER
and the bit in the start of Horse pooping before entering the hall.
Wonder if that was supposed to mean anything? May be JZ could explain...hmmm.
@Theon-- lol he's such a gullible sort of guy. He doesn't know what he wants, where he stands and most of all who HE is in the first place. he claims to be a Greyjoy but he's not ready to accept that he's more of Stark than Greyjoy.
@Luwin--- Oh man it was so sad to see him die.
I liked him and his relation with the youngest Stark kids, especially Bran. I like Osha too and I hope they find Jon soon but ummm it's no longer safe up at The Wall either because of the whitewalker
Speaking of Whitewalkers--- WOAH! what effects dude...that too for a TV show!
They really did a good job there and also in the Blackwater battle sequence...especially the explosion. Cool stuff!
@Sam-- Ummm i don't know but i don't think he face the casualty. Can he be made in to zombie like those other zombies (i forgot what they're called)?
@Jon- Ygritte-- lol yeah i liked their little scene. She challenges him and that's a good thing. Jon needs to wake up and take the charge.
@Jon killing Qhorin--- Good acting by it Harington there. You could see on his face and his body language that feeling of the "soul being ripped off of him" as described by Kit himself. I'm definitely looking forward to his meeting with Mance Rayder and if and how Jon gets to King's Landing.
@Robb- Talisa-- I, too, have liked Robb more in the second season because we've got to see more of him and how he's matured from being just a Stark boy to the King of the North. But errrm the wedding decision was wrong even though I get it why he choose to do so but at the time when he's fighting battles and there's alliances being formed and broken that ultimately affect who wins the battle, it's a very bad move on his part. First of all, he's personally invited Frey's wrath and his doom and second of all, he's backed out from a vow he made and that's not a good thing to do when you're the King as explained by his mother.
@Arya- Jaqen--- I liked their scenes and his "A man...A Girl" thingy
. He's a faceless assassin? But I want Tom's face back...this new face is so fugly! Will Arya go to Braavos? hmmm...
Jaime- Lady Stark-- The twincest Lannisters are SO like one another! Jaime and Catelyn's scene sort of reminded me of Ned's and Cersei's confrontation about Joffery's paternity.
@Brienne- Jaime-- lol I like Brienne. Jaime driving her up the wall and her slicing not one but two men right in front of him was fun.
And yeah Mazzy, Jaime's SO Prince Charming from Shrek! that's the first thing that came to my mind when i saw him in the first episode and lol yeah he definitely has that arrogance. lol
@Stannis, Renly-- meh. lol Renly was gone before you know it!
@Stannis- Melisandre--- I know! I was like how the heck they got back to their original place so soon? May be that Shadow-son got them there. eh who cares!
@Joffery-- Oh I wished that too and now's he's got that annoying Queen to accompany him. I don't like Natalie Dormer in the first place..she makes weird faces.
eh at least Sansa's free of Joffery and i liked her little "Yes!" laugh as she comes out of there and before her scene with Littlefinger.
and yeah the actor who plays Joffery is doing a good job because he's managed make everyone irked with Joffery and his airheadedness. lol I would LOVE to see Tyrion whack him on the face once again
@Comic-Con--- it starts the week of June 11th or something like that and i was looking up the panels and i didn't see GoT in it
. All I saw was panels for those SUPER crappy CW shows and the new fall line up for abc, fox, nbc and cbs. errrm what about GoT and Merlin?
Speaking of Merlin, Mazzy you should give a try to that series as well. JZ and I watch it and the best thing about the series is MERLIN- ARTHUR. They're like medieval British counterparts to desi Mohan-Guru. If you love MG, you'll definitely love MerThur.
