We're Number One! (This Week)

The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER has GAME OF THRONES on the top spot in their "power rankings." Which I guess means we're the most powerful show on television!


Here's a tasteof this week's episode, "You Win or You Die."

As for the post below... ah, sorry about the Horatio/ Oliver foul-up, just a brain burp on my part... explanation can be found in the comment from Amy-Joyce Hastings, for those of you who are still baffled.

Very tricksy, sir! But it does show you that we will be in fine form come the actual casting clues. :D

It's actually been #1 every week since release aside from one (I believe that was Justified's season finale).

I have to admit that I was probably one of the people who was most vocal about being worried Natalia Tena was too young for Osha, but she's completely won me over. I think she's doing a great job.

Just like your books, the series can only get better and better. New viewers are bringing you new readers at a record pace around my parts. I'll have my entire company reading the series before the end of Season 2. :)

No worries, I remember thinking when I read the post "It's kinda weird he didn't use the frog icon if this is a casting puzzle...oh well, guess I'll try anyway"!

Haha George, do you realise that you 'brain burp' caused almost 400 comments of heavy speculation on Winter-is-Coming.ney? Classic!

I've Seen the episode -
Because of the wonders of HBO Go, one is able to see the episode on the computer. No give aways but the opening scene is some of the best (or only) use of metaphor I have seen on TV for a long period of time. As a big fan of the books, I can't tell you how impressed I am by this series, from casting to production to writing to direction, it deserves its power ranking. I see each episode at least twice every week (on the computer and on the TV) and I will buy the DVDs (blu ray) when they come out, just to have them and be able to watch from time to time.

As I have e-mailed to GRRM, with all the comparisons out there, reading his books and watching the series gives me the sense I got when reading Tom Jones by Fielding. Its like sitting down to a great meal with great conversation and great wine. You never want it to end.

Re: I've Seen the episode -
Grrr ... stupid Brighthouse Cable of Florida doesn't support HBOgo, so even though I'm a rabid fan AND an HBO subscriber, I don't have access to HBOgo content! WTF Brighthouse!
I wrote them an email and got a form letter about how they are "striving to exceed customer expectations and they will consider my request." Yay.

Yay! I know the show has gotten several of my friends to pick up the books... some whom I've been nagging for years about reading them, heh. Can't wait to dig into the show on DVD in the future.

Oh my god, that's Natalia Tena! Why didn't I recognize Natalia Tena???
May. 26th, 2011 11:23 pm (UTC)
I don't buy her as Osha. Way too pretty, and hard to divorce her from her HP character. Hopefully, I grow into her portrayal.

The series is wonderful and each show seems to be getting better and better.

Which episode(s) did you write again?
May. 28th, 2011 02:52 am (UTC)
I believe he wrote Ep. 8.
May. 27th, 2011 02:05 am (UTC)
I am completely won over by Natalia Tena's portrayal of Osha. ;)

I tend to imagine characters so vividly when I read books that film or television adaptations fall flat and lackluster in comparison.

The actors in Game of Thrones are turning in so many stunning performances that this is starting to change for me.

I'm re-reading the series again, and as I work my way through Clash of Kings it's very hard not to imagine Arya Stark as she is portrayed by Maisie Williams, or Osha as Natalia Tena plays her. I like their visions of the characters better than my own.

Oooh...I just wanted to add that I think Donald Sumpter is an excellent Maester Luwin. Really spot-on.
May. 27th, 2011 02:37 am (UTC)
I am happy; this week's episode got my coworker to pick up the book. Hurray!

Episode 7
I saw the full episode on HBO go. They had a preview of it. I think it was the best episode yet. The show is really well done. I hope it keeps going strong
