Re: 2.01: Game of Thrones - The North Remembers
First episode was a good reintroduction to old, and introduction to new characters. Set up a couple major plot points well.
As far as the skin goes...
I could do without it. It almost always felt out of place. The thing is, I never really noticed it all that much during my read of the series. I've recently finished a reread, and noticed it much more in the novels. Almost, so much so that I could possibly argue that the TV series doesn't have enough of it to stay true to the source material. Almost every POV chapter has some sort of lude behavior, or at the least nakedness.
Hopefully we will have more nakedness done with class and reason like most of it was in season one. Episode one's nakedness was tacky, and used only for shock value.
