Jaime is definitely my favourite character, his character arc is becoming rather fascinating.
What will he do now? And Northern men are supposed to be the "good guys"? HA! Jaime has actually shown compassion and care, who'd have thought that? Roose Bolton is obviously the one who tortured poor Theon since the torture device was right behind him in one scene when he was discussing something! Or at least one very similar. Makes me wonder if keeping such information from Robb will result in some anger between the two.


The scene with Tywin and the council was pretty funny. Still a shame that Varys has had so little to do this season so far. Great season so far, looking forward to seeing what happens next, things are getting rather crazy, on all sides. I predict lots of backstabbing/betrayal.

Without giving anything away Varys role will get bigger the further they go into Storm of Swords. But yes they need more of him because Conleth Hill has been awesome as him.

Really liking what they have done with Theon so far

Slight book spoiler
As you don't get any of this in the books. He gets captured at the end of the 2nd and is not actually seen again till the 5th which is when the reader really finds out whats happened to him during all that time.


And Jamie is definitely a character peoples opinions will change on as the show goes on. Probably one of the best developed characters in the books.

Torrent seeders have started to sabotage the show with 80s music over certain scenes. Anyone ran into this yet?

Yeah, that's the one. Outrage among the torrent community over it, apparently. Bunch of hippos..

There are more tits in a single episode of Spartacus than an entire season of Game of Thrones. Also, hot half-naked German girls killing Romans.


Why Spartacus is better than Game of Thrones:

Game of Thrones battle scene. Skip to 3:06.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZWMa90D29g[/youtube]

It's so dark you can hardly see anything. They try to make it look epic but they use a lot of close-ups to hide just how small scale and low-budget the battle is. It's cheap camera and editing tricks. It looks like a typical TV programme.


Spartacus battle scene. Skip to 3:08.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rWUgluv_tg[/youtube]


How an epic battle is meant to be. Just look at the difference. It looks like it was made for cinema. It's in broad daylight so nothing is hidden. They proudly show just how huge and epic this battle is.

Keep waiting for them to drop the ball with S3 and its just not happening.

Loved the final scene with Danny and the slavers =D>


Next weeks should be great as well. Been waiting to see this fight

Poor Theon. Poor Jamie. Hope things pick up for them, they're really going through an awful time, at the moment. The Watchers scene was so intense! Wonder what's going to happen to Sam now, since he's running back to the Wall and Jon Snow is going to be fighting for the WIldlings...uh oh.

I never thought I'd feel sympathetic for Theon Greyjoy and Jaime Lannister but what do you know? I do. Episode 4 was great.

That Spartacus battle looks like it was made by collage students. Plenty of close ups and special effects right from the 90's [the high shots look terrible]. In fact they should have done the battle at night to hide the poor special effects.

Scene of the season so far
