In the books, Cersei does not send any messages to Littlefinger. There is a very little correspondence between them: Littlefinger reports Cersei offhandedly that the lords of the Vale oppose him, but is unconcerned and does not ask for help from King's Landing. See more »
At the brothel scene, the prostitute who is dressed like the Smith has the sleeves of her tunic rolled down exposing her breasts, but when the camera shifts angles, her top suddenly switches to being fully on and covering her. See more »
Season 5 so far is a diluted patch work of boring segments
I have to tell you guys about what I felt during watching this new season's several episodes. Well, this new season seems to lose a lot of steam, not like what we have seen before. What we got so far:
1. Not even one episode really showed any potential to become great as before.
2. Nothing but talk, talk, blab, blab and blab. Uninteresting dialog continued to an unbearable point.
3. The storyline suddenly seems to lose focus on many important things that we want to know when Season 4 ended, but so far, I just failed to see any development to keep my concentration going further.
Comparing this Season to the last four Seasons, it like watching two singing competition shows: If you never watched NBC 4 "The Voice" but only knew Fox 11 "American Idol", you would consider the latter is quite good, and those singers are pretty good, but, alas, once you watched "The Voice", then suddenly you know that all the singers on American Idol are not good enough, they are at a much much lower level than those singers on The Voice.
To me, Season 1 to Season 4 of "Game of Throne" is like "The Voice", while Season 5 is like "American Idol"; without knowing how great the last 4 seasons were, Season 5 maybe still looked good enough, but definitely not great so far.
I just hope the coming episodes would become better, but really doubt it.
