Only thing good about this episode? It's Daniel Sackheim's last.
15 May 2016 | by mmolgaSee all my reviews

Daniel Sackheim gotta be the biggest boner killer in the history of TV shows. I didn't think it was possible to make GoT un-watchable but this talented director managed to do it. The way both episodes are filmed doesn't even feel like Game of Thrones but more like some cheap sitcom. Two episodes with great story, so many things happen and yet I'm bored to death and astounded by how many bad scenes and wasted opportunities for good ones, I (and we all) had to witness. Tyrion doesn't feel like Tyrion, Ramsey is suddenly the main character, Cersei with her sidekick just seem to walk from Tommens chamber to small council meeting room and high sparrow stays in one room and talks to people. Did this genius director had 4 rooms on the set to use? Camera work is awful, dialogues vague the quality drop from 1st and 2nd episodes is enormous. Happy to see that Jack Bender worked on next ones, honestly these 2 episodes will be the only ones ill watch once.
