The triumphant return of the Blues Brothers.
- Sep 12, 2011
HBOMax has all the episodes up again. Thought I’d give it a rewatch given the sorry state of TV and movies at the moment. I’m about to start episode 3. Impressions so far:
- That pilot episode was epic. Quite long and they packed so much into it. I didn’t remember so much being covered so quickly.
- There is a lot of foreshadowing that I didn’t notice. Arya lingering on The Hound when the king arrives in the North. The dragon eggs are in almost every scene with Danaerys, and always surrounded by fire (candles). Dany also climbs in a bath and the worker says it is too hot, but that doesn’t scald her.
- I knew the production quality was high, but it still stands out as better than many movies, especially since so many new movies are Netflix offerings with pretty low budgets.
- In episode 4 the gorgeous Roxanne McKee is bathing with Viserys and talks about seeing a man who can change his face as easily as other men change their clothes.
