I was pretty much expecting to see Ser Barristan as soon as they showed the recaps of Season 1 & 2 at the top of the show.  They very deliberately showed the scene where Ser Barristan quit the King's Guard in Season 1.  The whole Dany storyline was very compressed, as well.  But all in all, it worked.

The scene between Tywin and Tyrion was easily the best acted scene of the episode.  Peter Dinklage and Charles Dance play these roles amazingly well!  And I definitely appreciated when Cersei said that she had heard that Tyrion had lost part of his nose in the Battle of the Blackwater.  It was a good nod to fans of the books who may have taken umbrage to Tyrion's wounds not being more severe.

I agree completely on this...  I too liked the "nod" to the book with Tyrion's nose injury.

I rewatched all of Season 2 on blu-ray before this season started.  So I was a few days late getting to the opener.  All in all, I really liked it.  Just enough of each story (except the Stark kids as Nicklab points out) to move along.  There definitely seems to be a different take on Margery in the show too but this was already developping to be different last season.

I'm also a little puzzled by the developments in Astapor with Dany.  I recall that Ser Barristan Selmy had disguised himself for some time as "Arstan Whitebeard" in the book, and had been accompanied by Strong Belwas.  However, I think the disguised Ser Barristan worked far better in the book than it does on screen.  A beard and a cloak don't really serve as much of a disguise for the viewing audience.

It definitely felt like they fast forwarded this whole part.  I seem to recall that Arstan Whitebeard didn't reveal his identity until late in this book.  I wasn't surprised when Ser Barristan announced himself given the "Previously on..." snippet showing his exile from Joffrey's court.

Not sure if this is the right place for this but does anyone follow Kickstarter?  I was looking today and saw they raised over $2 million dollars in one day to fund a Veronica Mars movie.

So on to the previews for next week... Anyone think the "shooter" in the preview for next week is Morgan from Season 1?  He's got to come back sometime??
Good call. At first I thought it would be a little too convenient for them to run into him on a supply run - but it makes a lot more sense considering they went back to Rick's ground zero.

Busy week this week... I just now had time to watch this episode. I really liked it, glad I nailed the Morgan call.  :)

Still, I was disappointed that Rick didn't convince him to come back with him. Rick needs another confidant.

I wasn't sure where else to post this, but when my wife was looking up the video to Gotye's 'Somebody I used to know', I happened to notice this gem as a suggestion:

'The Star Wars that I used to Know' parody song.

My favorite lyric, 'Have your friends direct your movies and they'll turn out better!'

That was awesome!

Hmmm.  I was thinking of picking up the Lannister version, but I wanted to find out if there was a Stark or Baratheon version first.  But now I may just get the regular Blu Ray / DVD / Digital copy version.

I got my Lanister version today.  I'm downloading the digi copy to my iTunes as we speak.

Season 1 was either Stark or Targarean.  Only Lanister or Greyjoy for Season 2 (as best as I can tell).

Was sort of a filler episode. But I'm happy to see Rick coming back from crazytown. I had forgotten that Andrea had no idea that Shane was dead. She's been away from the crew for so long.

So on to the previews for next week... Anyone think the "shooter" in the preview for next week is Morgan from Season 1?  He's got to come back sometime??

I forgot it came out this week. I went to best buy and all the Lanister versions were sold out. They only had 5-6 Greyjoys. I bought the Greyjoys but went home and ordered the Lanister one. I will return the Greyjoys when I get it.

I'm pretty sure they are Best Buy Exclusives. For Season 1 it was the Stark or Tagarean(sp) sigils. I chose Stark last year.

I'm happy this year is a Blu-ray/DVD/ digital combo.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6 Inch Figures?
« on: February 11, 2013, 11:17 AM »
I gave up collecting 3.75" several years ago... my interest wained and it felt like a chore to collect them all.  I didn't have a place to display them so they just sat in tubes in my basement. 

These 6" figures intrigue me.  If its a small line with only a limited number of figures, I could keep up.  The pictures I've seen so far make the figures look pretty amazing.  I may jump into this line.  Especially if the figures actually retail for less than $20.

I'd seen images of Ward Zombie online, but wasn't sure if you'd be able to point him out in the show.  Didn't know he'd get his own solo moment like that.

Was he the one that stuck his head through the "fence" at Woodbury?  I thought it might have been him given the "solo" moment.

I enjoyed the show last night quite a bit.  The first segment was riveting.  I did think it was awfully convenient that Darryl was able to get his bow back so easily! I hope crazy-Rick comes around and starts this reported bromance with Tyresse.  Tyresse looks like he'd be a good character for the show/group. 

Having said all that (and I haven't read the graphic novels at all), I hope that the writers are able to turn some of the story back into struggling to survive against the Zombies... I'm less interested in a fued between Rick's group and the Govenah.  Maybe, I'm in the minority about this.

I've been catching bits and pieces of the Walking Dead marathon on AMC today. Getting pretty excited for the mid-season premiere.

Unrelated, I was at Barnes and Noble tonight and saw some of the walking dead Graphic Novels. I had no idea they were black and white only illustrations. I just assumed they were in color.
