I have recently starting watching Game of Thrones at the urging of my son after some resistance (Me: But Sean Bean dies - again. Son: He doesn't die until the end of the first season. You can at least watch until then.)

Anyway, my vent is: Why do they have to film much of it so dark that I can't see what is going on? I felt like I was watching it in a cave last night because I had all the lights off and the curtains closed and I still couldn't see some stuff.

Are you sure that it isn't the settings on your tv? I haven't had that issue watching GOT.

I'm a big GOT fan and I've never had that issue.

Check the settings on your tv.

I was told when I first started watching this show was to not get attached to any character. I just started reading the 3rd book in preparation of the 3rd season starting 3/31/13.

I think it's your settings.

Oh, and does Sean Bean ever survive in a movie? Just once, I'd love to ogle him when he's not dirty or bleeding.

Settings are fine. Son said it was the same for him. Wonder if it is the DVD? Second season seems to be the problem one.

I believe he lives in National Treasure.

But he does go to jail!

Percy Jackson, but we don't get to see enough of him. It's hard to kill Zeus.

I can see it just fine maybe it is your tv? I love it, but I was mad when they offed Kal Drogo (if that's how you spell it). That man was hot like fire!!!

Wasn't that way for me at all. It's very well filmed.

I really would check your tv settings since no one else here is having issues.

Not a movie but a television show, Sharpe.

My favorite series ever (book and show)... my only vent is that I'm afraid GRRM will kick the bucket (or I will) before we get the ending!!!
