Well, the fourth season of Game of Thrones kicked off last night in Australia. Thoughts?
I thought it was a pretty good episode. Season openers are a tricky business. You have to move the action, but you also have to reintroduce characters, almost all of them, and re-establish their situation, etc. In that sense, the episode seemed to barrel along nicely, despite a few lines of dodgy exposition here and there, it all felt skilfully done.
So far so good.
What did you all think? And be warned, people who have read the books: kindly avoid dropping spoilers in the comments. It's not a very nice thing to do!
