Miss MarzipanSeriously though, this episode is so impressive visually. If you could get past all the nonsensical stuff and immerse yourself in the spectacle only, I see the entertainment value in it. It's just sad for the fans who delve a little deeper... and expect more, not in terms of effects/costumes/acting/directing (because these people have done their jobs well), but in terms of plot/writing/story!
kwadwo baidoo@King of the Ogres true I'll give you that but it isn't cheap or badly put together. The costumes look high quality. Personally I didn't mind cerseis outfit but I do miss the days when nobility dressed like nobility. Also everyone looks too clean especially dany. Most of the time her hair and make-up is on point even after a battle which doesn't make sense. Still it was the writers who ruined GOT everyone else was amazing
Miss Marzipan@King of the Ogres haha I see your point. I feel everything became overblown and exaggerated in order to compensate for the weaker writing. As the character writing downgraded, the costuming went from being a little more subtly symbolic to becoming more... caricature, e.g. "Look at Cersei. See the Darth Vader resemblance? Cersei bad. Cersei VERY bad now. Dark side kinda bad." The actual tailoring and execution is still beautiful though. To my knowledge they have the same people on costumes, but they've been directed in a different way. I blame D&D for all the bad moves at this point. lol
Silvana Kelleher@Got Academy I bought the book....it's good, BUT there are some very prominent GoT Youtubers missing: @Azor Ahype, @The Last Harpy, @TeflonTV, @Alt Shift X & @The Order of the Green Hand being the most obvious. Once they have chapters too & @Civilisation X gets a human voice all will be perfect.
Many thanks to all who've contributed so far though & it was an enjoyable listen :)
