Game Of Thrones (Season 4)

I watched GoT Season 4 a few weeks back. Just now getting around to doing a review for it. When I think of Season 4, there are 4 things in particular I will always remember because they were just so damn memorable. You can't talk about this without addressing the BIGGEST moment in the series run up till this season and that of course is King Joffrey. About a year ago, I heard that Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey, wanted off the show because he was tired of being harassed in real life as the supreme dick of the universe because of the character he played oh so well. Whether or not this was true, I never really paid any attention to this and just forgot about it. So, imagine my shock when they killed him off!!!! Not only did they kill him off, they did so in the f*cking 2nd episode!! Sh*t like this is usually saved for a Season Finale. This of course added to my complete surprise when they got around to his death scene. What's funny is that in the middle of the episode, I kept trying to figure out which of the Starks Daughter's would have the pleasure of killing him. My money was on Arya. 

The next memorable scene was the showdown between Oberyn Martell and The Mountain. How the fight unfolded was not a shock to me. I actually had it pegged just the way it eventually went down. I knew that Martell would make the Mountain look like an idiot in fighting technique. And I also knew that he would be fixated on making him confess his crimes to the point where he would eventually become blind to the situation and thus have his head crushed by two hands. Yuck!!. Also, you can't kill off the Mountain because the Hound and him need to settle their score and it's what we are all waiting for. The next great scene of course involves the Hound and Brienne. EPIC fight scene between them. Sh*t, that probably made the season for me. I also knew that Arya wouldn't give the Hound a mercy killing for the same reason as I mentioned earlier.

Loved the battle at the Wall with Jon Snow. I'm glad that the entire episode was devoted to his story. It looked amazing and I couldn't get enough. Overall, another standout season that just keeps getting better each year. I highly recommend this as a Buy. With that said,  I'm really starting to get annoyed with Daenerys Targaryen. Can't stand her after this season. I'm guessing they had to change her character to be more like Joffrey so that the series still has an ultimate villain. The first 3 season I did like her because she was the underdog, coming from nothing, building an Army. Plus, she has 3 dragons! But now....ugh. She is turning into Joffrey 2.0.

FHI, not spoilers about Season 5 as I have not seen it. I have stayed in the dark about any and all information regarding it.
