It seems to me what began as a fascinating story of intrigue, corruption and the struggle for power became thoroughly spoilt by too many plots, sub-plots and excessive and unnecessary detail.
    Same can be said for a lot of series in this genre. Unlike the more robust tradition of standalone novels prevalent at large, the fantasy genre and even sci-fi genres lend themselves to having a single continuing story across numerous novels. Another example of this is the epic Wheel of Time series (Robert Jordan) - in its case, the author actually died before getting anywhere close to completing it. We were left with another author completing the series who wrote a couple of concluding books that were markedly simpler in plot, prose and imagination. It wrapped up the series commercially, but the number of loose ends and plot devices needed to accelerate to that rapid end, remain a travesty. One person's self-indulgent series of overwritten books, is another person's masterpiece that they'll enjoy reading for the decades it takes to write the darn thing .

    Wow! This post has became the news of the day for me as I read it! It is so anusual and interesting, I wish the girls could tell more about their "Big film" work experiences. So now I can proudly say that my fellow co-workers are the GOT actors))) And now, it`s time for me to go and rewatch those episodes

    Exactly!! I was aware of most of them being in Game of Thrones when the episodes aired for the first time. But for the last few weeks on BluRay Rewatch it is so much more glorious in preparation for Season 8. I had totally forgotten that Kylie H was also in the appreciation scene for Pod the Rod in Season 3.

    At the end of this Blog post, Samantha Bentley (Samantha Jane on AW) mentioned just a few fellow familiar faces in GoT. But before that, her experience of filming some scenes is well worth the read.

    I was watching the first episode over the weekend (season 1 is still one of my favorites) and it was somewhat shocking realizing the number of characters that appear in the episode that have since died in the series. I fear a few more may be added to this tally by the end of the upcoming season.

    I hadn't seen that page before, that is an excellent list! It's funny watching the early episodes, so many scenes where I find myself thinking "if only they knew what was coming for them". Only one more month to wait!
