It's Monday, April 8th, and I have finally watched the Game of Thrones season 3 premiere. During the break between seasons, I read up to book four, which filled the gap slightly. Still, it's nice to have the show back, though I had forgotten how brutal it gets!
The graphics, also, have improved substaintially. Though Dany's dragons were never badly done, I remember them looking kind of off in the past seasons, but now they're looking impressively real, though Daenarys is still frustrated with how slowly they're growing, apparently. And though the giants in wildling territory only really had a quick introduction in this episode, I thought they were really well-done. Well, the one giant that was shown, anyway! I'm excited to see even more in episodes to come.
And through it all, Joffrey still annoys the living daylights out of me. It amazes me how he can just irritate me so much with just simple facial expressions and gestures... the actor has a vast career ahead of him, methinks!
But overall, I seriously enjoyed the episode! Nine out of ten for me, I think. Beautiful scenery and graphics, and the acting was, as always, superb, but I just felt a little something was lacking. Not sure what... maybe it's Arya I'm missing. Where is my favourite character?!
It's funny how I'm already behind in the season... hopefully I can catch up soon, and stay caught up. I hope you enjoyed my review, and have a good week!
