The Winter King S01E02 720p WEB-DL x265
I expected at least sensible care to be taken to stay true to historicity of an ancient indigenous people and their ancient lore and superstitions whilst also working within the framework of the books. What I didn't expect was a complete slap in the face of ahistorical nonsense that feels like the creators didn't even know it was based on a series of books to begin with. This is as much a period piece as A Knights Tale. And as much true to the books as Game of Thrones' last episode was. This was painful to endure, but I powered through hoping for some kind of redeeming quality to come into the light. I am actually more disappointed with myself for holding out any hope given the state of media in the last ten years than I am with the writers. I should know Hollywood writers are going to destroy everything they touch by now. I wasn't surprised.
