Did You Know?


This episode marks the introduction of Dubrovnik, Croatia, as a filming location for King's Landing. In the first season, King's Landing was filmed in Malta and Northern Ireland, using a combination of actual footage and CGI. However, according to show-runners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, the Dubrovnik location was so stunning and fit King's Landing so well that very little CGI was needed in many of the background exterior scenes. Dubrovnik was retained as a filming location for every season thereafter, with other locations in Croatia also used for a variety of different places in the series. See more »

I got bored
13 May 2012 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

I can't understand the previous reviews are so positive. "fantastic season start" and so on.

OMFG: this was so boring. What happened? Nothing!

I waited for this season to come and take us on a new adventure ride, but so far it has been a drama of doubtful quality.

I have not read the books, so I could not tell if the story writing for the TV series is following the books strictly.

But if they are it most have been some boring passages to read.

I hope it will get better before the season ends:D

I wish all a happy game of throne season.
