    esta segunda temporada se eleva aun mas con mas desarrollo de persona y narración solida
  • Aug 13, 2022
    "Elegant storytelling?" sure but think of this as high-end pornography (hey, it's HBO) mixed with period costumes, dragons, queens, a dwarf and plenty of palace intrigue. For god's sake, please don't name your kid Khaleesi.

    Amazing characters. One of the best tv shows.

    about the time where the show goes into high gear
  • Feb 12, 2022
    This show is a masterpiece. There is no doubt in my mind that it isn't. Despite the 8th season that most have agreed doesn't exist. This show remains my favorite of all time. This show changed what makes a show good, and proceeded to change it again, year after year. From the Starks in the North, The Martells in the South, The Lannisters in the West, and the Baratheon's in the East. This show is incredible. The politics and the "Game of Thrones" in the capitol, to the forshadowing of the white walkers at the wall, to the fight for the throne. This show is so dahm good. You see the events occur from almost every point of view, and it is all so entertaining. This is 100% one of the best shows of all time.

    Essa segunda temporada continua com o mesmo modelo da primeira temporada. Uma ótima narrativa e ótimos personagens.

    Captivating storytelling, astonishing production and marvelous character development allows GOT second season to soar even higher than the first season.

    I have read the book and now I realized that the downfall started with season 2 (maybe season 1, but season 1 could be ok if it would be the final season). Season 2 Arya- Tywin was bad decision. In the book it was Arya -Bolton. Arya helped northerners (that were Bolton's to get the Herrin Hall and Bolton made Arya his servant as a sort of because he trusted her. Arya didn't say who she was and pretended that she is just a common girl. That made sense! Later she was disillusions in northerners and run away with Hot Pie and Gendry. She suffered through a huge identity crisis and that made sense for her to go to Bravos. Arya-Tywin episodes did not make sense at all! Everything with Arya and Jaqen H'ghar was much more constant in the book and made much better sense. Season 2 was the season when Deaneries story stopped make sense. In the book it all makes sense. She was fine with Dothraki in the abandoned city and she was invited to Quarth. She was getting quite a good sense of reality. She realized that there are only 3 dragons and thousands of ships and she wasn't tricked to exchange dragon to a ship. She rejected the marriage proposal and split. The story with her dragons stolen in the show didn't make sense at all. It didn't happen like that in the book. Well Tyrion was still good. Stannis was Ok, although some details in the book made it more consistent. Battle of Blackwater was good. But all the build up for Sansa stories, her conversations with Sir Dantos and Clegeign were lost. And they were important for understanding what is going on in future. Oh. Robb and Talisia story was a garbage! Look a young attractive girl travelling along at the war and do what? She is a healer. LOL Nobody cared about healers. It is the society that didn't care about cripples. And she is performing amputations. Double LOL. It is not American civil war, it is a medieval war where it is better to die than be a cripple, especially if you are not a high lord! So we have Brianna that is a huge ugly girl with a sword and still she is risking to get raped, so what about Talisia? By the time Robb would meet her she already would be forced into prostitution. Nobody knows that she is some sort of noble woman from Volantes that they don't care, she is just a common girl for them. Her protection could be a noble title with a good amount of guards or a church protection. Then she should be a nun in a church and still would have guards to protect nuns from crazy and evil people on the road. She is not a nun and looks like she is travelling along. So how did she get so far? It all doesn't make sense and they just should stick with the book version that was logical and realistic. But it was watchable, and it wasn't the worst, those that come after were worse.
