Started recording this on my Sky+HD box back when it first aired, been catching up sporadically and man, was I pissed when the season finale screwed
up 35 minutes in and skipped scenes.
Having to watch that episode online right now thanks to some sort of technical fault, the rest of the episodes recorded perfectly fine......
Anyway, it looked great from the ads and Sean Bean's always a great actor (funnily enough, grew up watching him in Sharpe thanks to my parents even
though I hated that show at the time, might give it another chance). Loved watching and pointing out to myself excitedly British actors I knew ("hey,
Jerome Flynn!"......"ha, cool, it's Mark Addy"......."Charles freakin' Dance?!"......."woah, hang on, is that Natalia Tena?")
I looked it up to see if it was Natalia and yep, it was.
Love the show, best on tv. Having never heard of the books before, I have to admit that even the first sight of Joffrey's weird looking face had me
despising him from the very first episode and now.......yeah, that hatred is well founded. Great casting and beautiful sets.
This show is literally tv perfection.
