    He had some fantastic scenes in Ep4 in particular - I don't see him coming off as comical there, although he does have a wry sense of humour that comes through sometimes. I'm constantly amazed at the presence he manages to portray without coming off as comical, actually.

    No, it didn't. No character with POV was there, so it was original.

    That's what I was worried about as well.

    Yeah, I got that. I guess I just found it very clumsily done. And....

    This is sort of what I am concerned about as well, and why I found it annoying.

Damn, you gotta have some iron balls to correct someones grammar while you're talking about the fingers you cut off of him. That cold/steely personality of his is fantastic. I've grown to love him.
    I agree, he's been my favorite since he first appeared; and perhaps slightly even before that, with his whole unlikable reputation and all.

    /concur!

    The interplay with him and Tyrion is so much fun to watch. I loved last night with them in the throne room.

    I think they are overplaying the fantasy hand a bit. Martin worked so hard to keep magic in the background: ominous yet subtle. They balanced it well last season, but in this season I feel like I'm watching a lower budget, R rated version of Lord of the Rings.

    I still like the show, but I'm feeling a bit disappointed so far. (Although admittedly, season 1 didn't gain steam until Episode 5 or so.) Books 4 and beyond are going to require a lot of changes, and based on what I'm seeing with book 2, I must admit I'm not feeling 100% optimistic.

    I think I'm going to quit watching the show until all 10 air. Perhaps that will improve the viewing experience.
