Games of Thrones

*If you have not seen the Games of Throne episode “Unbowed, Unbent and Unbroken…Spoiler alerts…Also possibly over 18+ content*

So last week (I’ve only just gotten around to watching it) I watched the last episode “Unbowed,Unbent and Unbroken” and this episode has been creating a LOT of controversy, as Games of the Thrones always seems too (yes I’m aware I wrote that title wrong =P).

I noticed with myself though I spent half of it fast forwarding through a lot of the episode.  One of the good things about this episode though was that it did not just focus on just one character and did not focus on one story/plot line. This meant that the stories were pushed along and few needed to be because we had had nothing happen for a while with certain characters and it felt like “Oh, there you are”.

The problem that I am starting to have though with this series is that it’s feeling a little repetitive and yet people continue to be shocked and outrage. The particular scene at the the end was not even in the book. The writers of the show seem to think that there is only one way a woman could ever been given “strength” and that is through having really terrible happen to her and it’s starting to bore me. I was also bored though because I can’t believe that no one didn’t see what Ramsay did, coming? That’s just my opinion on the matter though. I think it was just lazy writing really.

  1. While I’m committing myself to watching Game Of Thrones to the end, it’s been dragging on me this season. I get what you’re saying, that it feels like there’s really nothing going on. It’s like each episode just spins its wheels in the mud until it throws something shocking at you. The problem with this pattern is that I expect it and so what’s supposed to shock me, doesn’t. I go into every episode thinking, “Okay, how are they going to try to shock me now?” I think the only thing that could really surprise me is if they ever play an ending straight.

  2. I find it’s getting boring as well and I’m wondering where they’re going with a Dragon Queen (Mother of Dragons) that can’t control her dragons? Or even talk to them any longer? And I agree, it’s like they’re using sexual violence against women as an almost weekly plot device, whether it’s to show the brutality of the male characters or the victim side of the women or to show the female characters “grow,” — regardless, it’s getting old.
