Game Of Thrones
« on: January 01, 2014, 01:33:12 AM »
Am i i the only one who thinks this tv show is overrated? Everyone i know raves about how good it is and people even say it's better than LOTR's. So i got hold of the dvds and i have already watched season one and am now half way through season 2 and to be honest i think it's a little boring : /

It's not i think it's bad. There are many cool things i like about it. I like the nudity. I like the graphic violence and i think the power hungry child king wannabe is interesting. Apart from that there doesn't seem much to it.

It's a good show but i've seen better.
Even my cat doesn\'t like me.

I like I like it for what it is.  An entertaining TV show.

Well, it's a decent show, and I kinda love the soundtrack. The books are better, than the series, but if you need something to watch then you could do far worse.

If you ask me the intro sequence and its music is one of the most brilliantly done I've seen.

I can do better.  Sorry guys, I can't find anything uplifting about it.  The story telling is thin.  Like much of the tripe on cable, it only seems to serve as a vehicle to stretch the shock envelop on TV.

I've only ready the books, is it a loyal adaptation of the books?

ANYTHING that isn't more dreck about the monarchy.

Thank God the British also gave us the Magna Carta.

Frankly, having a King or a Queen is primitive and demeaning.

Honestly, even though we owe our freedom in the US in part to the same King the French beheaded, I think the frogs had the right idea.

Eh, *shrug*, the power of the king/queen in a lot of European countries is rather limited and mostly relegated to a ceremonial position (although I'd like to see it being even more limited). Not sure if having a single person with a lot power is preferable (like France or the US). Actually I find the whole idea of nation-states quite primitive (look at all of the misery it brought that last couple of centuries).

Well, at least the boobs are rather up-lifted (not counting the dead king's boobs).

You obviously don't understand our form of government.
The President only represents one branch of government.
Formulating legislation is primarily the business of Congress.

Our President is hardly in a totalitarian position like Kim Jong Un.

Where did I say that president led states like the US or France are comparable to a totalitarian regime?

I'm saying that a president like yours or Hollande has more power than the prime minister of, say, The Netherlands and that I'm not sure that is a good thing to have.

Frankly, even with the reduced power a Prime Minister would have, the leader of the United States could still be a dangerous individual.
After all, we are much more likely than the Dutch to ship our military out on global 'adventures'.

Or do an IRS audit of notables who disagree with policy. Sounds close to totalitarianism to me.

Only if you have something to hide.
I have always found the IRS a breeze to deal with.
Just don't jerk them around and you are fine.
