This isn't going to be a Game of Thrones blog either - but that's mostly what I'm doing at the moment, even when I'm not doing it.  Anyway, I'm about halfway through the second episode of the new season and I have a complaint. 

No, I'm not going to complain about the books being different, I haven't read this far yet.  Nor will I complain that they cut out action scenes.  They could double the budget, but action scenes are expensive.  No, this complaint is all my fault - As I said earlier, I bought the first two seasons on blu-ray.  1080 looks a lot lot better than 720.  HBO HD just isn't HD enough for me, I guess.

All the other complaints will probably wait until after the season.  If then.  I haven't found much to complain about so far, except for the books' (and the show's) penchant for having such a large cast.  Hell, I don't remember my family half the time and there's only a handful of them.  I'm horrible with names anyway.

Ah well,  back to the show.
