I tried to get into Game of Thrones, I really did. But theres just...

so much...

Talking.

Its like they took Lord of the Rings but instead of having Aragorn chop Orks in half and kick ghosts in the nuts, they have him talk with everyone for an hour and a half, then he goes to another town, and talks with everyone there for another four hours, then, he goes to a big shiny city, and guess what he does there? Throw in a couple scenes with some semi-interesting stuff happening here and there with zombies and wolves just to keep people hooked by the hope they might show more zombies and wolves, but instead, thats right, show people talking for another hour.

Lets not forget the fallback tactic of "Show tits every thirty seconds. Tits are a surefire substitute for anything else we might be (are) lacking, right?". Seriously.

I want to see Aragorn chopping orks in half. If I get to see Arwen's tits thats nice, but if I don't (And we didn't) I won't care too much, because I know where the internet is and I can get as many tits as I could possibly handle there.

Of course, I only saw about three episodes, so.

Hmm, methinks you need to be watching Spartacus: Blood and Sand...sounds more like your cup of tea GoT is full of political intrigue with blood, gore...and tits thrown in for good measure

Theres also some kind of age restriction on series, younger audience only want mindless action.

I just hope we see some epic battles this time. The first season was great, but I thought it was a bit of a cop out how they cut the big battle at the end out by knocking out Tyrion then having him wake up after it was over. The book was different in that instance and better for it. Though it was quite a clever way to cut production costs lol
