I cannot express how much I enjoy this show watching it via VidAngel! Not to sound like an advertisement here (lol), but seriously I wouldn't watch a show like GoT without it. I can skip all the stuff I want (which for me means no nudity, no super horrifying deaths, a lot of the profanity is eliminated, etc). And yes, the story is still there and the episodes still feel fluid despite some of the brief cutoffs. I just wish that people would create good quality shows like GoT without all the nonsense nudity/sex/super graphic killings. I really hope Amazon's Lord of the Rings will be TV-14 and not MA.

Is this a real thing? My wife likes the premise of the show but hates nudity and excessive swearing so refuses to watch it with me.

Yes it is! They keep getting sued, and Disney won't let their stuff play, but a lot of things linked to your netflix/amazon/hbo account will work on it! I love it for this!

Wait whaaa...? Why? That adds to the real feel of the show and makes it much more authentic in it's setting. Are you ashamed of the human form and afraid of a few sound bites we have come to associate with vileness that doesn't exist. Words are wind after all and underneath the clothes you are as naked as you name day. 

You are entitled to your opinion, and I am to mine. I hate that stuff and don't want to see it when I'm wanting to enjoy a little escape to a fantastic setting with good storytelling. I don't want my lord of the rings-like show ruined by sex and Saw-like horror scenes. I should be allowed to watch shows/movies the way I want to, and not be forced something. This will especially be true of me now that I have a child on the way. I can't wait until something like this or clearplay is legally established by the Supreme Court so that we don't have to be force-fed sex scenes just to see something higher quality.

Nudity continues to melt down American eyes I see. Was that the secret used by the Viet Cong? Someone should tell the Iranians, but then, they literally blur woman's faces in television because that's too much for them already.

Edit - not meaning to derail the thread but you and Dulfite sound as out of place to most people here as some Iranian asking if VidAngel can censor female faces.

Probably shouldn't judge people without knowing their reasons for disliking something.

My wife is the one who doesn't like nudity and it's because when she was growing up her step-dad was a fucking creep and would watch porn in the living room in the middle of the day when her and her siblings were home and now she gets extremely uncomfortable whenever she sees nudity or sex scenes on TV.

She enjoys other movies/shows with a medieval/fantasy style setting so I think she would like GoT but wont give it a shot because of that.

Tell her about VidAngel then! I refused to watch GoT because of that reason, then I read about Vidangel. They get sued all the time, but over the last year or two I've watched the entire GoT show and had the ability to filter out whatever I wanted (you can get really conservative if you want, or just cut certain things out). Having watched the show now, there are some things I would have filtered even more in retrospect. For instance, I would really not like to have seen the Mountain crushing that one dudes skull by pushing his finger through the guy's eyes. I would also like to have not seen ANY of the scenes involving that creepy guy who mutilated what's his name's manhood (I'm really trying not to think about it cause that was just so gross and terrifying). Anyway, it's well worth the monthly charge in my book!

I was really disappointed even though my expectations were pretty low following the previous season. It felt like an unnecessary episode, nothing important happened and they wasted time on some things. That Daenarys/Jon lovey scene was cringey and the dialogues became too simplistic. Well, I'm gonna watch till the end anyways, hopefully it improves.

I can't disagree more with this. I was also disappointed in last season but felt this episode redeemed things quite a bit. I appreciated that the episode focused on the characters and their reunions and interactions, and I feel they were all important to the development of each. To me that goes back to the basics of GoT. The way that they used Sam's anger with Daenarys into his telling Jon about his true heritage was a good way to plant the seed of how Jon/Daenarys may end up going awry. I feel like I know more about Euron from this one episode than I did in all of season 7 combined. The episode clearly mirrored S1E1 and I'm fine with that.

I do agree about the Daenarys/Jon scene though, plus I thought the CGI was noticeably off in that scene as well.

Season 7 completely killed my interest in the series. I will still watch the final season after it's finished.

How did Season 7 completely kill your interest in the series?  I can see someone saying the quality of the storytelling went down hill as they get further way from the books and try to rush to finish, but completely killed seems a bit extreme.  Still the best show ever made and the first 3 books are some of the best books I've read.  Still remember reading the red wedding some 8 years ago, and putting the book down so upset that I had to go on a 10 mile jog before I could read on.

I understand where you're coming from, and the episode did have some redeeming moments, like you mentioned, Sam's bits were some of the best. I just think that the urge to deal with these reunions made everything feel forced, it lacked fluency. They went on a path to make things simplistic, like Cersei's concern with elephants, it's understandable but they kind of made it into a joke. I'm not trying to be overly critical, but honestly I just didn't enjoy it. There was so much more wit before. We'll see what happens, I just hope they don't ruin it.

Always found it very akward to watch those nude scenes because i watch this show with my family and this first episode nude scene had me wishing i could skip it . :p

Edit: Would also want to say that Gwendoline Christie(Brienne) is such an amazing actress and she has such an awesome personality.

Totally crushing on her :p

Well That was fantastic. It'll be an episode I skip on a rematch however and I wish they had used the last 15 minute segment for partial battle, maybe a surprise skirmish and still have the last epic shot of the army as you think they'd have scouts out on the perimeter and they could have used that Interwoven I to the episode to build tension but still, for what it was that was one of the better episodes and as a reader of the books I shed a tear when Theon pledged himself. People who are aching for the action to begin will be sore of course but I understand what they are doing now more than I did last week and I'm not a bit disapointed, this is going to be phenomenal.



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

Episode 2 was really good and emotional. The battle is right around the corner and you can feel a sense of dread from the characters. This was the last episode all these characters will be alive together.



I didn't want to see Arya that way. :(
