A few thoughts after season 2
No one seems to be using the other board much, so I'll put this here so everyone can see it. There WILL be spoilers for non-readers, and mods, feel free to move it if necessary.
First, hats off to Michelle Fairly. I was skeptical about her being cast for the role of Cat, but she has absolutely nailed it. I still have a little trouble with her age and also the fact that she looks so much like an actress friend of mine. It's very disconcerting.
Alfie Allen has really done amazing things with Theon. I was ready top follow him after his inspirational speech in the last episode. Likewise Sophie Turner has gone from being very lightweight (in my opinion of course) to developing great depth in Sansa's character.
On the flip side, Kit Harington has been underwhelming at times during this season. This is probably my only complaint about any actor in the show, other than the casting of Gregor in season 2.
As for the story itself, it's still upsetting to be how much the wolves have been underused, and along with that no 3 eyed crowed dreams for Bran. I also really wanted them to get the Tower of Joy in somehow. The House of the Undying was disappointing, although I think I understand why they left so much out, actually everything. I'm not happy with not having Ramsay show up. I thought the whole thing with The Halfhand was poorly done, and I still have no idea why they deemed it necessary to change Jeyne Westerling to a woman from Volantis.
I love the series, but it could have been better
