A wonderful adventure turns into what
30 April 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

The first season of Game of Thrones was an incredible, wonderfully crafted fantasy adventure that made us addicted to the series. But this season the air is very different. The good story is sacrificed to the shock effect. This episode we had to watch ten minutes of torture. Not gory, but still, was it necessary? Game of Thrones got us with its witty dialogue and well drawn characters and its story, not with this kind of tricks. Creating emotions with torture and sadism belongs to cheaper productions who can't create emotional reactions through its story. I don't want to be left feeling dark and disgusted after each episode, I want to be left feeling the satisfaction of watching a great adventure crafted with art, just as I felt after the season 1 episodes.
