Fair point. All we saw was:
The white walkers
Ned executing a deserter
The kids getting direwolves
Jon Arryn dying
The court going north
Jaime and Cersei fucking
Bran being thrown out a window
Sansa and Joffrey betrothed
Ned becoming Hand
Dany getting hitched to Khal Drogo.
As you say, not a lot.
Show is picking up momentum now! The most recent episode was really good.
It's kind of boring. Episodes are too long imo. I like a 40 to 50 minute episode of TV. They also seemed to have introduced a pantomime villian with that new guy. Your man who burnt his father alive (and his brother?) so your one's old man would be Hand of the King again.
A lot happened though, yeah? We also met Tyrion.Its all exposition in the first episode. Here is so and so, this is his deal.
Did we care about John Aryn or the nights watch guy dying?
No. We had zero idea who their characters were.
You need series long arcs to get invested. Then it shocks you when they die ( if you havn't read the books)
I'm enjoying HOD , all to Doctor Who chewing the scenery.
You'd have thought his Dad would have advised him on taking the part and his portrayal of it because he ain't no Joffrey.The window wanker is David Tennant's son.
