The Game of Thrones and The Killing.
O.K. Tell me the Game of Thrones didn't pay off, in spades. Great last episode. I was riveted and I read the book! Linda pulled down the book and read the last paragraph out loud, and the show just nailed it.
I liked the show all the way through, but it seemed a little plodding compared to the books. Now I think, like all good things, it just needed to wind up and prepare for the sheer power of the story. Bland camera movements, but you know what? I'm sick of jiggly camera's representing movement. Let the story speak for itself.
Terrific. A couple of times, it sent chills down my spine. When Jon Snow's friends proclaimed their oath, and the dragon unfurling at the end.
Can't wait for next year -- and can't wait for the fifth book.
Come on, really!?
To me this was like watching someone do the most obvious and easy things in very elaborate and sophisticated ways.
First thing I thought when they were talking gas mileage was -- what if the suspect got the car filled at the end of the drive instead of the beginning? But it took the two 'detectives' the whole show to figure that out.
The one detective's total betrayal came out of left field.
Too bad. Great atmosphere, great emotions, great acting, great editing.
I'll watch next year, because I'm a sucker.
