Did Game of Thrones’ hotly anticipated season five opener live up to the hype? Yes, but it’s now a tangibly different show as the series moves into its middle-game.

  1. Decent opener but not brilliant. Too much Jon Snow, although I loved the Red Witch’s “Are you a virgin?” comment! Hold onto your stones and bone, Jon!!

    • I have to admit I’m starting to enjoy Jon’s story now that the Wall is beginning to feel less like a remote outpost and a bit more integral to the story. I’d be keeping an eye on Melisandre if I were him, though!

      More scene-setting to come in episode 2, as is usual for GoT, but I’m pleased with the gathering sense of momentum even if much of what we’re seeing up front is more political intrigue than action. Unless you’re poor White Rat, that is!
