B) You clearly have no clue whatsoever how much it costs to film a medievel siege scene like that. This isn't a movie with a $200 million dollar budget.
If you actually found the Lord of the Rings movies entertaining your going to fall in love with Game of Thrones. Me? I was bored out of my mind and lost 12 hours of my life and about $35 in tickets.
Somehow HBO was able to film great battle scenes in Band of Brothers and The Pacific but Game of Thrones, which is supposed to be the network's flagship show and blockbuster hit, the scene looks like something out of a Xena rerun.
