  •  Arya's storyline alone would be best show on TV (4+ / 0-)

    There are so many phenomenal characters on television right now.  Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, Raylan Givens, Leslie Knope, Daryl Dixon, Don Draper...

    But right now my three favorite characters on all of television are on the same show.  Danaerys Targaryen, Arya Stark, Tyrion Lannister.

    Really loved this added depth to Gendry and Melisandre, appropriately taking some luster off of the Brotherhood.

    Was really shocked to see what became of have a character like that around for the better part of three seasons meet such a sudden demise. But as storytelling goes, it really drove home just how fucking evil Littlefinger and Joffrey are.

    The one show I'd compare 'Thrones' to would be 'The Wire'...a show which was famous for having no 'villains,' no characters who were wholly repugnant on every level.  Avon, Marlo, Herc, even The Greek had redeeming qualities.  The exceptions (that proved this rule) were State Senator Clay Davis, and the lawyer Maurice Levy.

    Now there are a few more villains on GoT ....butin terms of both utter repugnance and infuriating apparent immunity from justice... Littlefinger and Joffrey are the Levy & Davis of Game of Thrones.

    •  Agree about 'The Wire' one of the best ever (0+ / 0-)

      HBO does incredible work. The Wire was my favorite of all time.   Game of Thrones will be up there with it in my opinion.

      Elizabeth Warren 2016!
