haha yeah that warlock guy is like Robert Blake times a million. with a bit of Dean Pelton thrown in for camp value.
so i'm now caught up to the latest episode. let's talk shit! this thread should be up to 100 pages by now.. i can only assume everyone is waiting for the whole series to end before watching any of it. such a shame but i can understand. i know a couple of people who had to stop themselves after watching the first episode because they didn't think they could bear the weekly torture. i did the same with the wire (the Qarth of shows, the best that ever was and ever will be) and it was the best decision ever.
on the subject of masterpieces, pozer's claim that this has the potential to be the greatest show that ever lived.. i concur! the production value alone places it above anything i've ever seen on tv. the locations are just incredible, they feel completely authentic even though they are impossible.. i don't want this show to end because then the world they are creating will cease growing.
i also want to voice my disapproval of book discussion in this thread. fuck the books, i wouldn't even have heard of them if it wasn't for the show.. there is no way they could have created the immediacy or emotional involvement i'm getting from all the amazing performances.. well, apart from lena headey, who must be the only bad actress in the whole cast. lucky her role doesn't require much from her but to raise her eye brow incessantly, my contempt for her brow is possibly matched only by pozers contempt for her incestuous spawned cretin.
so fuck the books. i pledge my fealty to rightful king-title of George RR Martin, Executive Producer, and the protectors of the realm, lords David Benioff and DB Weiss of house HBO. may the vile scripture that gave birth to this magnificent piece of entertainment never hinder or spoil the legacy of the one true popular art form.
