I'm re-watching the premiere now--switching between it and the Mets/Angels game. There are problems with this show, but I still love it.
It hurt to watch Ice melted down, though nice to see Ned again in the previouslies. Diana Rigg rules as Oleanna. Prince Oberyn made an interesting first impression. I can do without the brothel nudity scenes, but I love his reaction to "The Rains of Castmaere." It was great to see Arya get Needle back, but damn she has become a cold-blooded killer. I fear for her.
I can't wait to see the Purple Wedding and its aftermath.
