Game of Thrones season 3 has just finished. Game of Thrones is, no doubt, my favorite TV series. However, I like this last season less than 2 and 1.
Season 1 was almost perfect. Episode after episode, they presented the protagonists, all of them full of nuances and contradictions. Real and interested people and we identified with them. Of course, everyone had a favorite character. Personally, I identify with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), the stubborn but brave younger daughter of Lord Eddard Stark (Sean Bean). The honorable Lord of the North, who becomes Hand of the King and finishes involved in the detestable problems of the Royal family: the Queen, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), has an incestuous relationship with her brother, Jaime Lannister ( Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), and their son, the future king Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson), is a teenager truly evil.
Finally, the righteous Lord Eddard Stark is unfairly executed and starts a great war by the Iron Throne (this is the end of season 1).
It’s clear that this first season had less inversion than next. But the script was fantastic: structure, dialogues, times. We were prepared to receive the tragic but mythical end.
After the success of this first season, season 2 had more money than a movie. Sets, special effects, even a naval battle. Audience was surrounded to Game of Thrones. Specially important was now Tyrion Lannister ( Peter Dinklage), the younger brother of the incestuous royal couple, who uses his good sense of humor and intelligence to overcome the prejudice he faces as a dwarf. Everybody identifies with him too. Above all, when we see him directing the naval battle because the rest of the royal family are too cowards.
He gets hurt and belittled by his obnoxious family.
Season 3 is interesting too, and even enjoyable. However, the script is a mess. They forget characters and happenings, and times are not very well calculated. We are not prepared to accept some dramatic events. Last week a lot of main characters were suddenly killed and their deaths were not mythical, like that one of Lord Eddard Stark, but really ordinary.
Then, if I have to choose: season 2. And you?
Have a nice day, Yareah friends. Art is Everywhere!
