Game Of Thrones Season 3 – ***(*)

It’s true what they say. You need to persevere. Sit through season 1 and 2 and you’ll get rewarded with an excellent show.

This season truly is so much better than the previous ones, mostly because as a viewer you finally have an overview of who is who. The acting is solid by almost all of the cast; the gore and sex are less abundant, but more efficient; the costumes are incredible and so are the settings. There’s still a lot of doubt about the importance of certain characters – Stannis Baratheon & Melisandre -, but other previously tedious story lines somehow start to make sense. It’s not a historical account, it’s a fantasy world. However, the show feels so British that you can’t help being annoyed by all the magic and anachronistic discrepancies. It’s still pretty much a caucasian show where anyone colored is either a mean ruler, a soldier or a slave, but some of them are becoming more and more important.

There are still people out there who haven’t heard about Game Of Thrones, even though it’s omnipresent everywhere you go (in Caucasia). Many others don’t bother watching because of all the hype and because of several other factors (too violent, too much nudity, too complicated, too much magic, too white…). Their loss.

Season 4 is out as well and season 5 is on its way. Sometimes it takes some time to catch up.
