    So S1 is done and we're into S2. I meant to post earlier with my impressions but although I still find the show enormously enjoyable of course, so much has been said about GoT that it's challenging to come up with something new.

    It almost kind of sucks to see the difference between writing in S1 and S7. You can tell D&D had their choice of the best bits of some superb plotting. I don't think there's a minute of wasted screentime. Every moment does something to establish the world, characters, conflict, or plot. The cast they got for this show is fucking lightning in a bottle--which doesn't diminish the obviously titanic work that went into the project.

    The OG King In Da Norf scene is still my winner over Jon's.

    The look in Jorah's eyes when he became the devout disciple.

    The salt when Theon is like "we're brothers, brah" knowing what is to come.

    The realization I'd never had before that Bronn's story throughout the show is one of my my favorites even though he's a secondary character. He managed to get his own "rising through the ranks" underdog journey right along with Jon and Dany.

    Forward unto S2.

    We know now that S8 will arrive before June 2019 because that's the cut-off date for the Emmys. Before S7, new seasons dropped around April. S7 was moved to July in 2017 because they wanted to film the winter scenes in September. I'm hoping S8 will be closer to April again. That would put us at 9 months to go.

    In the meantime, the my rewatch of S2 has concluded. I declare that Bronn is the season's background MVP. Varys' reaction when he realizes that Bronn had the City Watch slaughter "all the known thieves" may be the best moment of the season. And Tyrion is like "we talked about this", like Bronn's murderous ways have grown from merely an annoyance to a recurring inconvenience (all the major players probably had spies among those thieves).

    S2 also gives us, imo, one of the best duets of the show, rivalling (and perhaps even surpassing at times) Tyrion and Bronn: Arya and Tywin. Their scenes are endlessly entertaining.

    Beyond-the-Wall action in S2 I actually find quite a bit duller than other plotlines, although that scene with Sam... that was a powerful moment. Same for Essos. I'm really looking forward to Dany and Jon in S3.
