Game of Thrones: Fornyet for sesong 2!

Game of Thrones hadde premiere 17.april og er allerede fornyet for sesong 2. Jeg har sett den første episoden og må si meg for det meste enig i mye av den rosende kritikken som har kommet. Jeg har begynt å lese bokserien (for bøkene er som regel bedre enn serien/filmen), men har så vidt startet, så mye av det vi ser i pilotepisoden var ukjent for meg. Om jeg skal komme med en liten anke, så er det at jeg føler pilotepisoden burde vært lengre, eventuelt at HBO viste de første to episodene etter hverandre. Det er mange karakterer som skal introduseres, ting som skal etableres og forklares – noe det jo må være – men det gjør at piloten virker litt “treg”. Men absolutt fantastisk flott laget, gode visuelle effekter, gode skuespillere. Nok et godt stykke håndarbeid fra HBO. Og siste scenen i episoden er et virkelig OMFG! øyeblikk som nok fikk flere enn meg til å sperre øynene opp🙂

Her er pressemeldingen som offentliggjør sesong 2:

HBO RENEWS “GAME OF THRONES” FOR SECOND SEASON
