    Fair enough, Feev! It just sticks out sometimes when every one else has a British accent. I'm not bothered by the fact...I'm just so used to the British accent at this point that I tend to notice. I still like him the best, regardless

    I feel like Tyrion would be the sort of man who "put on airs" and tried to talk especially regal around others just to make fun of them to himself, while at the same time, messing it up so everyone knew it, just to see if they would break court civility to point it out.

    But, maybe that's a Lannisport/Casterly Rock commoner accent. Tyrion picked it up from spending more time bangin' whores than being at court. His brother and sister never spent enough time among the rabble to pick it up. haha.
    There's one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it's one word long.. people. No matter how big the idea they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened. It's people that kill every revolution.

    I think they are going on the fact that they hired a bunch of British actors they assume everyone should have a british accent

    and that .gif is epic.

    Seconded. I think because people see castles, peasants, and Sean Bean though, they automatically think everyone should sound British. I guarantee you that, somewhere out there in the world, a retard is asking the question...

    "Wait. So it's not set in England?"

    Seriously though, i've no problem with how Tyrion sounds. It's not exactly British, but it blends in. And he's so awesome, who gives a fuck?

    And that gif is brilliant!

    Anyway, just watched the 2nd ep, and this series just gets better and better. Another amazing ending, too. Can't wait till the next, that's for sure!

    Do you need a download link? or else it will probably be on HBO-go, or whatever their online viewing program is...

    The Syrio and Arya part was awesome and I love the guy they have playing Little Finger.

    Yeah, I wasn't as impressed with tonight's episode as I was with the last one, but it was still good. During the entire Joffery and Cersei scene, I just wanted to punch them both in the head.

    And the guy playing Syrio....Awesome.

    I wasn't sure how I felt about the guy playing Littlefinger until lastnight, now I really like him though. Well, I don't like him at all actually, which is accurate to how I felt about him in the books . I loved the scene where Jaime tells King Robert what The Mad King said as he stabbed him. I'm really loving that actor.

    In general, I agree about last night's episode, though. I wasn't as blown away, but it was still awesome.
    I had my infatuations, but we both know in our hearts who is the sole love of my short, bright life.

    Well, you guys took the words right out of my mouth - I wasn't enamored with last nights episode, but it did have it's moments. Robert and Jaime exchanging war stories, Ned choking the shit out of Littlefinger etc.

    Also

    Spoiler:
    I want to see the molten-lava crown scene already dammit !

    And Jorah Mormont. Wow. He's one I could never picture whilst reading but TV version pegs him perfect.
    I love the insolent eyebrow arched looks Dany's handmaid gives to everyone.

    Also, Lord Varys looks nothing like I had pictured him from the books. He looks like Buddha.

    We've touched base on this before but I have to reiterate what a great casting choice the producers did with Littlefinger.

    Also, how f'n amazing is Dinkelage ? Seriously. That guy is a sure fire contender at the Emmy's.

    I rather enjoyed last night's ep. True, as people pointed out, it wasn't as amazing as the first two, but still something that kept me watching (especially any scenes with Tyrian in, that guy's awesome). The training at the end was also very cool, and whilst it didn't have the fantastic cliffhanger endings of the last two eps, it still ended on the right note.

    Well i must say: it's great to finally see another high quality show to watch every week! That's something i find very difficult to find these days!
