When compared with old sk00l shows with a similar setting (dynastic disputes/court intrigue) like "I, Claudius", which is tightly plotted, relentlessly intense and superbly acted (and no, that sort of Shakesperean acting wouldn't feel stilted even today), it's just so...lame. Or maybe I'm old.
well, you are old, we all agree on that.
If GoT is cheap looking, I dont know what else on TV isnt.
The filler part is true-ish, 95% of every episode feels like that. Every episode is "Winter is coming" and I'm like so fucking what?
I dont know the rest, because i never seen I, Claudius (HBO's Rome was great, thats all i know) and i dont know anything about acting. I mean I think Maria Sharapova is a great actor actually. She deserves an Emmy.
