Game of Thrones - 2.09 'Blackwater'  
Watched Game of Thrones, it was good, but then I think all episodes are good. :)

Still, eh, not one of my favorite episodes. I'm such a stereotypical girl in that blood and guts and violence, blah, blah, blah doesn't interest me very much. Tyrion was as awesome as ever. God, I love him so much. Can't I just get an episode that features just Tyrion and Arya? Pretty please!? (Yeah, I know it would have taken away from the whole battle stuff, but wah! No Arya!)

So yeah Tyrion was awesome. Cersei was a royal bitch in every sense of the word. Sansa was cool, I loved her actually doing the queenly thing after Cersei left, showing how a true leader would act in that situation. The Hound continues to leave as little impression on screen as he did on the page for me. Davos continues to rock so hard. Joffrey continues to be a whiny, cowardly, petulant, cruel scumsucker. Bronn/Tyrion, and Podrick/Tyrion continue to make my heart smile, and Tyrion/Varys continue to have the most awesome conversations ever.

I mean the mental goings-on were so good, the intrigue, the stuff with Cersei and Tommen, every moment with Tyrion, etc., all of that was excellent, but there was so much battle. I'm not a battle-girl. I just so am not. Oh, and I didn't mention it in my overall-thoughts post, but I don't like the actress they got to play Shae. I actually liked Shae in the books, this one I don't. Ah well. She didn't detract from the awesome of Lena Headey and Sophie Turner in those scenes.

I'm not bothered much my gore, but some the gruesome bits were kind of hilarious, like how easy it was to chop off someone's leg.

Ah, Hollywood special effects, hee! Making chopping body parts look easy since 1939! :)

(1939 cuz it's the earliest movie I personally remember showing body parts chopped. See icon. :)

I can't say I've thought about them in that much detail.

Neither have I, I was just making a joke based on your comment about easy chopping body parts, LOL!

I know. So was I, in my dry way.

Blood, guts, and violence don't really interest me either. In fact, large battle sequences tend to bore me (unless they're grossing me out). I love the mental parts, but I kind of tune out during the actual battle parts. So this episode was less interesting (at least for me) than most of the episodes have been.

So glad to hear I'm not the only one. I just keep reading OMG!SO AWESOME! praise for the episode, and I was like, eh, battle. Eh.

I love the mental parts, but I kind of tune out during the actual battle parts. So this episode was less interesting (at least for me) than most of the episodes have been.

Pretty much, yup. :)

Did you know that GRRM (The author) wrote this episode??? :D And I loved it didn't see the beginning but the battle scene with the cool effects, and Joffrey being the bastard he is...just ugh. He's a bastard but he's a coward when it comes to fighting....lol. I LOVE Tyrion. He's awesome. He's one of the males on there that I can stand.

Nope, I didn't know. Still doesn't change my opinion that the battle scenes (other than the awesome of Tyrion and all in scenes with him) were eh for me. So not a battle girl, LOL!
