Re: Game of Thrones

I enjoyed the first episode, I have never read the books(or plan to for that matter) but definitely keeping a series recording for this season.

Re: Game of Thrones

It's pretty hard to say it's not rape in the show, where as the book you'd have a argument.

Eh, it's hard to see it any other way for someone not familiar with the book, she's crying, she obviously doesn't want to do it, and Khal seems less compassionate than in the book. I mean I don't think it's bad, as it's probably slightly more realistic. very reluctant would be putting it nicely I suppose.
You're right. Cutting away implies that it was most likely rape, leaving her in peril and drawing more sympathy.

My pre-conceived notions of Dany and Drogo clouded my judgment there.

Re: Game of Thrones

That scene is kind of strange. She clearly didn't want to do it. But she allowed her gay brother to put her in that situation. I'm interested in seeing how this particular plot line plays out.

Re: Game of Thrones

What was she going to do? She's like 5 feet tall. Plus Vis will "unleash the dragon".

Re: Game of Thrones

There really wasn't much she could do. Viserys wasn't just going to be like "Oh well" and call the marriage off.

Catch him with his gay lover and blow the back of his head off?


I digress.


Also, rape is just a legal term after all. Meaning, if they are married is it rape?


Out of all the awesomeness of that show, this seems to be the sticking point.

Re: Game of Thrones

I fucking love the intro. The cogs of war/machinations turning and creating the cities is so fucking perfect.

I'll be honest, I never really 'got' the Drogo/Dany shit in the book either. In fact that whole storyline always just seemed creepy in general. Viserys is such an inbred little fag btw

Re: Game of Thrones

If you were a girl and your brother was gay and he touched your breast... would you slice his throat?


BTW, yes that intro was pretty damn awesome!
