After a rewatch of key scenes and some consideration I'm moderating my erstwhile enthusiasm for this week's Game of Thrones episode, and particularly the Kingsmoot. It wasn't really that good, was it, especially compared to the book material; I get that they don't want to make characters look too weird but Euron Greyjoy should at least have had an eyepatch and some of the dialogue from the book. And thinking about it, it turned out pretty lame with Asha and Theon managing to steal away a pretty large fleet in broad daylight, and Euron begging everyone to start chopping down, erm, trees to build a pursuit fleet? That was just bad.
And once I got into this mindset I began to ponder other scenes and in the end I end up with the question (again), "Why oh why can't they use more book dialogue? It is already mostly great."
