Getting better still
18 August 2014 | by vimrodlSee all my reviews

After enjoying the first episode and finding my expectations fulfilled about how would the TV adaptation work, I was more than ready for this second episode. Even though I have already read the whole book series, I know that I will be finding differences and some new scenes too in every episode. I'm actually looking forward to it, since I find it very interesting to see how the creative process of turning a book I love and know into a TV series works. And I'm not in the least adamant about keeping book faithfulness to the word. This second episode is more straight forward than the first, so maybe it's more friendly to less patient viewers. The actors do a great job in evolving their characters and, at the same time, letting the audience know there is so much more to be discovered about them. Castle life recreation is fantastic and the new scenes and dialogs added to those in the book are perfectly blended into the story. The music is always wonderful. Being filmed in Scotland and under the same weather conditions that the characters endure, adds to the realism of the adaptation and is another great example of how detailed this production is.
