S10 // "GAME OF THRONES" SEASON 3 EPISODE 3 REVIEW....

//POR RIKI LEE// 17 ABRIL / 13.....

 ( IN FULL - ENGLISH )  "WALK OF PUNISHMENT":  The fortunes have been shifting, both north and south of the wall.  The men of the Night's Watch are limping back towards the safety of Westeros, sniping at each other and searching for the comfort of Craster's Keep and a warm fire.  Things aren't really going well for them;  Things haven't been going quite so well for Robb Stark either cause he's been winning, buuuuuut....his uncle Edmure has somehow managed to screw up his plans and thus, Robb is not a happy king.....and there also seems to be tension between Dany and her two guardians, Barristan the Bold and Jorah the Andal.  It's a bit of a one - upsmanship between the two grizzled knights, with Barristan taking the noble route and Jorah taking the practical route ( which seems proper for both characters ).....

 The show does jump around between characters and settings quite a bit, but unlike last season with Dany's adventures in the Red Waste, this season seems to be willing not to spend time on characters who don't have a lot of importance.  I understand that Dany was a big part of the first season and you can't just abandon her for the second season simply because she's not a huge part of the second book, but that was time for which we could have gotten more Tyrion as Hand of the King.

 This season though, we seem to get just enough check - ins with certain characters, with others getting more episode time depending on their need and storyline.  I may only get five minutes of Tyrion Lannister, but one scene of him at the Small Council meeting can still be the highlight of the night.


 The only problem with getting small doses is that episodes can occasionally feel incomplete, or lacking a climax - that is not the case this week, but I digress.  I would love to just immerse myself in one storyline for an episode ( as with Blackwater last year ) and not feel compelled to check in.  Perhaps that will happen again this season, but so far we've been getting several teases and no real lingering in any place for longer than five minutes or so.  If the show keeps this up, some folks may not be satisfied, but the only problem I'm currently having with GOT is that an episode goes by too quickly and there are too many interesting things happening for one single hour of programming.

 If only there weren't a week between episodes and I could just consume them in masses like I did with the first season....Cool EP....Click the ADS OFF and watch, while it lasts...
