Game of Thrones season 4 premiered yesterday and I have to say I was quite underwhelmed. The premiere felt more like an episode we see in the middle of the season. You know, the episodes that only exist to bridge the gap between what happened and what will happen next. I wanted something more in the season premiere. Maybe next week.
My only real complaint is that I am tired of seeing snippets of storyline here and snippets there. I wish they would do what Lost did and what The Walking Dead does now and that is to dedicate an entire episode to one or two of the characters. Yes, it doesn’t happen on every episode of The Walking Dead, however, it’s enough to move the story forward and create a sense of tension in the viewers.
We, the viewers, enjoyed watching Daryl and Beth’s love connection develop, but it made us want to know even more what was going on with the other characters. At the same time, the story is moving forward. Its wheels aren’t spinning in place like it does sometimes on Game of Thrones.
All that being said I will continue to watch because Game of Thrones is still one of the best series on television.
