Okay. You're forewarned. I wanna talk about this season and I don't want to hold back. If you don't want to know what's happening now, click away. I'll give you a second.
Is it just us chickens, now? Good.
I did not watch the first two seasons. I'd read the books and after watching a couple of episodes I realized I wasn't going to see anything I hadn't already read. I haven't read the third book, though, so I've been watching Season Three.
I'm still completely blown away by the world building and the complexity of the plot. The acting is amazing. The sets. The costumes. Everything. It's amazing.
So here's my pickle. I can not stand the torture thing with Theon. It's too upsetting. It's too gross. It's too horrific. Plus it's so well done that I can't stop thinking about it. I can't stop thinking about what it would be like to be in such pain all the time and to not even be able to die to get release and to not even know why the person was doing it to me except that the person is a sadistic monster. I went on some wiki thing to see if it would end soon, but found that it runs through the rest of the books that have been written. Plus there's an interview with GoT co-creator David Benioff and he says he LOVES torturing Theon which I'm pretty sure means he's not going to stop.
I don't think I can stand it. I'm thinking about not watching anymore because it's too upsetting.
Are you watching? How do you feel about it? Has any subplot ever upset you enough that you stopped watching a show?
