Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

You're saying that all the time... Can't disagree though.

Anyway, I'm glad the rapture didn't happen so we can have more of this.

Spoiler

Also, who else loved the *thump* Viserys's head made when it hit the ground.

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

very good episode indeed.
i can't see this show ever fail as long as there is enough money, same writers team and good actors.

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

From the screenshots, it looks kind of legit. I'm going to get it but gonna dump it if the talks about audio being out of synch is true.

E: it's not 720p, but at least with vlc sound is ok and the picture isn't that bad... I'm afraid I can't resist watching.

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

this sucks. now i have to download it sad

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

When reading the books i was wondering why Daenerys didnt do anything to stop the crowning. Now when watching the tv series i think she let it happen to test if Viserys was a real dragon. Hence the last comment. Well he was threatening her child and all that too but still i think she also wanted to test his dragonness.

Sansa is starting to becoming her really annoying self. I like the actress playing her even if the character is the way she is.

The star as in so many other episodes was Tyrion. Peter Dinklage is just amazing at delievering the lines and Tyrions wityness. It was funny when Tyrion asked for trial by combat and all the "bravest" knights stepped forward to fight him.
Bronn i also like a lot. Just as greedy, sneaky as in the books.

Renly doesnt seem to be much as in the books. Highly annoying even. I understand why Robert doesnt like him.

I also liked how they were talking about the Mountain Ser Gregor Clegane. Some were disappointed that if he is the tallest and biggest person seen in the series they wanted him to be bigger. But we need to remember that most of the stories about him are myths and talltales just like when they talked about him in this episode. That is one of the things G R R M is so good at. Perception and how things change depending on from whos perspective the story is told.

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

this show is awesome, period.

HBO started their "HBO Go" service (pay for HBO and watch it anywhere, your TV, computer, tablet, or smartphone) and to kick it off they offered the 7th episode of Game of Thrones as a stream right after this 6th episode aired. People actually crashed their servers for a while, the demand was so huge smile

So yeah, the 7th episode is legit, but it's not an HD rip, if you care for such things.

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

Holy crap!

I haven't had the time to catch up with the reading, so the last scenes with the talk about the Mountain and the ending with Viserys came as a surprise. Damn.

I'm a picture and sound geek, so I'll wait for the 720 next monday.

Not just the Spanish maine my love. The entire ocean. The entire world!

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

Good episode, but is it only me or is everything on a much smaller scale?

Spoiler from books

Spoiler

The Khalasaar is supposed to be tenths of thousands iirc, we only ever get to see like 50 people. And Roberts hunt was supposed to be like a three-week thing, with packhorses, tents, servants and so on. Not just four people wandering through the woods alone with a spear. I feel like the show loses a bit of its epicness when everything is done on such a small scale. The last thing that bugged me was when Bran was attacked in the woods. There were supposed to be more bandits, and Summer+Grey Wind were supposed to kill like three of them.

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

Spoiler from books

Spoiler

I agree about the khalasaar and bandits, but as for the hunt, there could be tents on a meadow somewhere, but the king just went to hunt with few people. You know, it would be hard to hunt deers and such with 50 loud people wink

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

i agree that the extremely small usage of direwolves is sad in this show.

and king went to hunt boars not deer.

i was pleased to see viserys get what he imho deserved, but i wonder why carl drogo did it, was it because viserys was just annoying him at the moment? or because he disagreed with viserys not so subtle plotting and disrespect for dany? because.. the way he did it suggests the latter, but.. he knew this all along, i guess viserys ways didnt bother him back in the day when he first met the targaryens, viserys treating dany as a slave is after all the reason, or at least a prerequisite, for them being together!

I don't think Khal thinks in such depths. I'd think Conan black and white logic more appropriate:
1. Pretty woman -> good
2. Pretty woman with annoying brother -> shrug
3. Annoying brother holds a sword pointed in the belly where my heir is growing -> kill it in a messy way.

Re: 1x06 A Golden Crown

Also, the Dothraki are very religious and V was about to spill blood on sacred ground. And the blood of his pregnant wive. He didn't need more than that.
