Game of Thrones S01 E01

Post by Admin on Tue Jan 10, 2017 5:49 pm

This is the thread where you should say what you thought to the episode we watched in class today. Did you understand it? Was it interesting? Which characters did you like? What did you think of the themes in the episode? etc... You should also start watching a series in English this week and start a new thread telling me about it.

Don't forget you also need to prepare for a class discussion on The Legalisation of Drugs. Your participation will be noted. You also need to form a group for the video exercise and tell me which sport you are going to explain.

Game of thrones

Post by Claire Dessales on Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:29 pm

I was one of the people who voted for Game Of Throne because I am fond of this series. I began to watch it last summer with my boyfriend. It was he who mades me discover it and since I watch.
In this series, my favorite character is Arya Starck because she isn't like her sister, she is very clever. She gives little importance to its appearance contrary to her sister. She wants to fight. I hate Viserys Targaryen because he doesn't respect his sister, he doesn't protect her, he lives to be king. He will soon die.
The history can be complicated and It is absolutely necessary to follow every minute of the episode.
In this episode, we discover the family Lannister, a special family because a sister and a brother sleep together and the other brother is a dwarf who loves women and their company, he is very funny.

It is an episode of presentation, it is not thus easy to understand. However we can understand that there are several big families which fight for the iron throne, apparently everything the knocks are allowed for the credit note and to make alliances. The characters to whom we become attached from the beginning are Eddard Strak, Deanarys and Turion, because they are charismatic characters, they are my favorite characters.

This is the first episode of Game of Thrones, it is a very difficult series to understand because there are many families and therefore characters. My favorite character is Eddard Stark, we attach ourselves very quickly. At the beginning of the episode, three Night Guard patrollers discovered that savages were cruelly put to death in the forest. They are in turn victims of supernatural creatures, the "white walkers". Only a man manages to escape but, captured and accused of desertion, he is condemned to death. Before his execution by Eddard Stark himself, he evokes the white walkers but Stark does not believe it because they are creatures long gone. Shortly afterwards, a mutilated wolf is found in the forest; His six Cubs are adopted by each of the Stark children, including Jon Snow. But this series does not interest me much, personally.

I started watching this series 2 weeks ago and I like it.
In this first episode, it's difficult to understand, because there are a lot of character.
In the begining, of people discover that "white walkers" are back and they killed men.
Stark learns the death of his friend, and the king ask Stark to replace it. At the end the son of Stark, surprises Jaime and his sister and Jaime pushes the young boy from the top of the tower.
For now my favorite character is Bran the son of Stark because he is young, carefree and adventurous.

Game of thrones is an American series, known for its dazzling realization and its complexity of history.
   The first episode brings together two families: the Stark and the Lannister, the family of the king's wife. The king, then proposes to Eddard Stark, the place of Main of the king following the death of the previous one, Jon Arryn.
   We also discover a last family, that of Prince Viserys Targaryen and his sister Daenerys. Viserys wants to reconquer the kingdom, which belonged to his father. In order to do so, he wishes to marry his sister to a nomad, which would enable him to have an army under his orders.
  This was the first episode of Games of Thrones that I watched, and it tempted me to watch next.

Game of Thrones

The episode talks about the Stark. This happens in Winterfell where there are dark wolves. They must not be beyond the wall normally. Ned Stark gives a baby wolf to each of his 5 sons.
In parallel with other characters come for example Robert Barathéon, king of the 7 crowns.
Another family is present in the castle, the Lannister including three important characters: Jame, Cercei (wife of the king) and Thyrion, the dwarf who has sexual relations with prostitutes who amused me and brings humor to the first episode.

The first episode of got is verry good, because it introduces the biggest intrigue of the series from the beginning: the white walkers. It is very well played because we do not see them often and we always want to see them because they are verry interesting .. and we want that winter finally arrives to make things happen..!
So this first episode is verry good, and when you have already see all the series, it's good to see again all the Stark

I liked the first episode of Game of Thrones, I had not had the opportunity to watch this series and it to the area to be not bad. I understood enough and it was rather interesting. I do not have characters that I like more than others, the theme did not displease me, it was rather nice. I think, I'll try to watch the other episodes ...!

Game of thrones s1 e1

Post by BARIL Alan on Mon Jan 16, 2017 9:45 pm

I know the series Game of Thrones that we watched in class. I know everything of this american series. So I understand all the episode, I understand all that the characters talk about, the white walkers, the different family, etc...
My favorite character in Game of Thrones is Jon Snow because he is a bastard but he is brave and charismatic, and I watched all the other season so I know that what happened for him and what will become, so I like it. I like Tyrion Lannister too because he is funny and it's a good person ( for the other season especially). I hate Geoffrey Baratheon ( or Lannister) because it's a sadist, a bad person, and a spoiled child. like very much Game of thrones.

I have already seen this series, it talks about different families the "Lannister's" the "Targaryen's" and the "stark's". These three families are going to argue about the royal throne. The series and scenes are based on these three families fight and certain politiques will be established.

After seeing the first episodes of Games of throne, I did not understand everything, I find that is a difficult series to understand. If I understand, the first episode takes places in a world completely different from ours. In the beginning, two men were cruelle killed in the forest by white walkers (supernatural creatures). One of the men survives but not for long ... It was executed by Eddard Stark. Before dying he evokes the white walkers, but Eddard Stan does not believe him. My character prefers in the first episode is Eddard Stark because he has charismatic. The family Lannister is special..... Because a sister and brother sleep together and the other brother is a dwarf. I do not watch this series at home... But at school yes...!

In this first episode of GoT, we can see the main characters of de series : the Lannister family, the Stark family and the Targaryen family, also the "white walkers".
Before he died, my favourite character was Eddard Stark (Boromir the best <3). I love this series and I saw all the seasons... But in this fucking series, everybody dies ( SPOIL SPOIL SPOIL SPOIL )
The episode not tell us anything that we do not know...
Anyway, in the 2 first seasons, there is a lot of sexe... And it's not bad Wink

The first episode of Game Of Thrones is amazing, like the all series is. At the beginning of the episode three men of the night watch are attacked by the "white walkers". Two of them die and one escapes. but this one is accused of desertion and executed by Ned Stark. Then, the stark find a dead wolf and its six orphans wolf cubs which are adopted by each of the children Stark. After this the king Robert Baratheon come to Winterfell, the Stark's house/castle, with the aim to ask to Ned Stark to become the hand of the king. Then, a feast is organized.

Today I'll talk about the first episode of Game of Thrones we viewed in class last week.
In this episode, there are 3 importants things :
1) The king of the Seven Kingdoms, Robert Baratheon lost his "Hand" (right-hand) and decided to named Ned Stark to replace him.
2) The son of Ned Stark (a bastard), John Snow, want to integrate the Night's watch.
3) The Mad King's son and daughter want to recuperate their kingsdom. For this, Viserys Targaryen decided to marry his sister, Daenerys, to Khal Drogo, the Dothraki chief.

To be continued...

I never watch the serie Game of Thrones, it's the first time. I think is probably because a big part of population spoke only of that and that become irriating (and because I don't like serie in general, cf: homework S1 "the americans series").
The first épisode we watch in class gives a general impression of what the series could be, I think it's an good serie (and is probably because so many person watch it) but it's not my kind of serie/movie. I prefer serie/movie we talk about sport, medecine, ...
I think I would not watch the rest of this series, but watching the first episode in class allowed me to know and to be able to make my own oppinion.

In the first episode of GOT we discover the main characters, the different kingdoms and the alliances. We discover the problem of the season, winter arrives and the white walkers are returning and are real dangers for the kingdom. The character who inspired me most is the Lannister gnome. He looks smart, intelligent and cunning.
