Now that enough time has passed for everyone to see the final episode, a brief salute to Game of Thrones, via the above 8-bit version of the theme — WARNING: will embed in your BRAIN — and a piece of Phil Noto art depicting Daenerys Targaryen who was a real standout in the 10-episode season.
Here it must be said how thrilled we here at Stately Beat Manor were to watch a TV show that was literate and nuanced and also included scenes that will fuel LARPing for generations to come. GoT started out slow — all that exposition and family lore! — but came on incredibly strong in the last three or four episodes. As in life, everything has a price, actions echo through the ages, and a man always wants his daughters to marry up.
Great TV. Looking forward to reading books as we wait for the second season!
