Record the Night’s Watch Oath
From Entertainment Weekly:
“To celebrate the home release of Game of Thrones season 2, HBO has created MyWatchBegins.com, where you can record your own version of the Night’s Watch oath and then listen as your voice is added to the multitude.”
Den of Geek names “Blackwater” best TV episode of 2012
“Now THAT was an episode!
HBO has a history of, in other programmes, promising big battles but delivering sub-par results. Neil Marshall, who directs this episode from a great George R.R. Martin script, keeps things tight and intense. There are wider shots of what have to be CGI ships in a CGI harbour, but when it comes to showing combat scenes, they’re shot almost claustrophobically. There are bodies and hacking axes and slashing swords and I can’t tell who is who outside of Tyrion, Bronn, Stannis, and a few other recognizable faces. Still, it doesn’t really matter from a viewer standpoint; we’re getting carnage and blood and people being cleaved in twain, and that’s exactly what you’d expect from a war in the Seven Kingdoms.
The amazing thing about this episode is that, for the first twenty-thirty minutes, there is no battle. There’s just tension, and that makes the battle even more effective. You know what’s coming, they know what’s coming, and it’s just stomach-churning to watch these characters we’ve grown closer to all season prepare themselves for potential death.”
