Re: 2.02: Game of Thrones - The Night Lands
Hhhrrrmmmm. Leaves some cheese for mouse. I'm not happy. The writing credits goes to David Benioff and DB Weiss as they are the pair that wrote most of the first season episodes. And the one thing I don't understand is that how they'd cocked up the beginning of the wonderful season so badly. It is almost as if they've forgotten that the majority of the people haven't read the novels and they need more narrative than what there currently is the at this episode.
I'm only glad that you didn't hear Mrs Ctg fuming after we viewed this episode, and she cannot take the s**t... um... alterations, the writers has weaved in the current plot. Not that there is a great deal of the plotting as to me they've forgotten that multi-POV's in the television needs more explaining. They cannot possibly fit everything that in the book number two in the ten episode.
There's no way.
But they did wonderful thing with the adaptation of the first book. However, in this one, and especially with the Ghost scene drove Mrs Ctg for a fifteen minute rant on why that wrong as Sam should not had been able to shush the direwolf away that way. And the thing with them being at that place beyond the Wall isn't very well explained and I only can suspect that they cut away the explanation of the babies as it's a long dialogue in the book. Still I believe that they could had done it better.
What is also bothering me is that they keep showing the dragon lady sitting in the middle of the desert, starving and without the support of his people when at the end of the first season, she had much large gathering of the people. What happened to them? And why is that these nomads aren't able to find the water even though they've probably been roaming through that part of the world for a very long time.
I don't know but I'm not especially happy.
