I'm working way through the first book in audiobook format.

The guy reading it is a British POS who keeps switching between calling him "Joffrey" and "Jeffrey". 0/10

I'm finna start reading the books. Fk the audio books i heard a sample & like 12'er it's unbearable. No way i could listen to that dude for all of them. 

I also got my mom to start watching it this weekend. She barely made it the first few episodes and was like i don't like it. It's kinda boring with way too much gore, fking & incest. I told her to just watch the 1st season b4 she makes a judgement to quit because it takes a while to build the characters. Just talked to her earlier & she's already a few episodes into season 2 lol. Said fav characters so far was Ned along with Arya & Tyrion. Imma have to pass over b4 she gets to the red wedding. I wanna see her reaction lol.

I went on holiday to Dubrovnik Croatia where kings landing was initially and there was some epic **** about the filming. 

Really impressive.

Kinda makes you feel bad for Jon who spent all of his time freezing in Northern Ireland lol.

I tried that too, for some reason thinking it would be easier. Couldn't make it past the first chapter and switched to book.

It's 2019, idiot. No one reads anymore.

As it happens, I have 40 hours a week where I can listen to audiobooks, so I take advantage of that.

Yeah the article says he basically started getting crushed with stress when Jon started to become the focus of the show.  Jon Snow doesn't want the throne, Kit doesn't want the fame.

I couldnt imagine honestly.

 

You have how many millions of people focused on your every word on and.off the show.

 

Then their schedules, while lax at some points, when they are filming, are horrendous. 

I pull some 18 hour days here and there, but it doesnt span weeks like they did.

Bruh, if Dany was my aunt and I didn't know it and wasn't around her growing up I'd be chilling in Dragonstone in incest heaven.

ep3 was 55 night shoots in a row. That must really take a toll on people. Sleep deprivation is worse than being drunk. Grey Worm's actor was supposed to shout something in Valyrian but he kept shouting some dude's name instead...

the real Long Night was the actual shooting.

It's a shame that battle's cinematography gets ѕhit on because some people don't know how to adjust the brightness and contrast on their TVs.  The scope and scale of that battle was amazing, thinking of getting the Blu Ray collection for the last season to see how good it's SUPPOSED to look.

If it's a widespread problem then I wouldn't blame it all on the viewers. My TV is calibrated and I had to watch it with the lights off to see any detail. That shouldn't be required.

It has also been correctly largely attributed to limitations caused by video compression for streaming video.  I can't speak to what traditional cable audiences saw (cable video is also compressed), but video compression was certainly an issue for anyone streaming and probably doubly so for people streaming it illegally.   There was somewhat significant color banding / gradient issues on my HBO Now stream, depending on the lighting of the scene, that I couldn't correct.  I've had similar experiences with other content and have subsequently bought a Blu Ray and the issues were gone.  

But, I have over 4 years professional experience color correcting and contrast/brightness correcting photographs, so maybe that's why I was able to work around it.  Most people don't even know how to change goddamn inputs on their TV's.

my x930e can pump a bit over 1500 nits of peak brightness but still i could notice that episode was a bit too dark. had to adjust my picture a little but even then it was a tad dark for that episode.  but that episode only.  im pretty sure they intended it to be like that to try to mask all the cgi effects or something. perhaps it was intended to be like that.

but its probable that the torrent i got was captured from an internet stream and perhaps the guy doing the encoding didnt have the greatest internet speed or capture hardware or was compressing it too much?  it was still a great quality rip nonetheless. just a little darker than any other episode ive watched or pretty much every other show or content as well on this tv.  i havent really had to adjust any of my settings for anything elset to get an awesome picture. just that one episode i had to tune it up a little bit just to make some background things stand out better

DAMN, I never noticed Drogo crouching down and looking Viserys in the eyes after he dumped the gold on him just to watch him die.
