    Maybe it’s because america is really sensitive to that stuff right now, but was there opposition to The Man In The High Castle show and books?

    Its honestly not that popular or as popular in comparison and was accepted solely as an alternate history show. Innsome ways the books are more popular than the show.

    It's different when you shift focus to black ppl. Black ppl have been especially pissed off with the only black movies being nominated for Oscars are slave movies or about the civil rights struggle. They been fed up since 12 Years a Slave. And a show like that doesnt help that. Its a bit self-mastubatory to even depict something like that extending in to the 20th century. Seems a bit hacky like they copying Handmaiden's Tale.

    So some white guys, making a tv show where slavery was never abolished was never gonna fly.

    A show where black ppl had enslaved all the white ppl instead though. Now that would have legs.

    It was probably going to focus more on the political side. I doubt they would've been dumb enough to focus on slaves

    One of my favorites is the Hoster Tully funeral scene in which Edmure and Blackfish are introduced. No words are spoken in the scene. Edmure is an incompetent POS and Blackfish is a legend. Blackfish deserved a better ending than the one that he got.

    Jaime and Sir Brienne bath scene where Jaime explains what it was like being labeled kingslayer. One of the best acted scenes in the show.

    The director of that episode also directed And Now His Watch Has Ended, The Lion and the Rose, and The Mountian and the Viper.

    When Oberyn tells Tyrion he’ll fight for him was a great non-battle scene as well

    When Tywin tore into Tyrion and told him that he should have had him killed but didnt because he was a Lannister.

    Some other faves:

    Tyrion confessing his sins at The Eyre.

    Olenna Tyrell vs Tywin. Which lead to Cersei having to marry Loras.

    Sansa lying to the nobles at The Eyre.... @itsaboutthattime
    I remember that scene being your favorite.

    When Davos confronted Melisandre
    about burning Shereen.

    Tyrion GROWLING at the crowd that he should have let them all die is easily my favorite.

    Jamie/Brianne bath is up there.

    Viper telling Tyrion he'll be his champion

    Robb defending some prisoners was big for me as well.

    A couple of weeks before the GOT experience in DC...

    I think I’m going to do a tour of King’s Landing, Bravoos, and Antigua when I go to
    Barcelona...
