Game Of Thrones - Season 5

Done with the first 4 episodes (Yes, I got the leaked ones). Sufficient dose of eye-candy - No complaints there. Not enough footage of the dragons - Disappointed.

The Son's of Harpy bit… has been overdone (in my view). Too much time devoted to that conflict. Should have been trimmed down.

Would be interesting to watch more of the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce). Waiting for the back-story on this one. Character looks promising.

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) - I still find her face revolting, but the character is now a tad bit tolerable. Must have something to do with significantly better lines being allotted to her.

Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) - Darker hair looks better. Unfortunately, Sansa hasn't completely come out of the Cry Baby stage.

Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) - Wonderful to watch AND the character now has a lot more to do than just look pretty.

Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma) - Developing into a rather annoying idiotic character. Irritating.

Dragon Babe (Emilia Clarke) - Yet to be convincing as her fiery self (as in Season 2). We wait.

Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) - Nice to have him back. Still mystical. Still interesting.

Melisandre (Carice Von Houten) - Formerly referred to as 'red-head bitch' has been tolerable so far. A welcome change.

Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) - Had to wait till Episode 3 for the character to get back the wit.

Brienne, Arya, Theon, Ramsay … easily ignored. So far, irrelevant to the plot.
