When we say that the preview for next week's episode of Game of Thrones looks better than the premiere, we literally mean the preview itself, not the upcoming episode. That's how much of a boring let-down the premiere was!
Yeah yeah, we know! It might have broken records, and it might be setting up tone and all that jazz, but the writers have a TON of shizz to pull from, and their hands weren't tied making the first episode as sleepy as it was! We mean, SPOILERS, there was only one pair of boobs, no man-junk (except a severed nipple), and the only person offed was a wimpy White Walker at the beginning!
Of course, everything Tyrion does and says is completely badass, but the meat of the episode wasn't really about him!
Regardless, we'll probably be hooked on this show until it ends — and the second episode of the third season (above) is looking promising as hell!
Maybe we were just spoiled by the last few premieres or whatever, and the hype of the return got to us. We can give it props for setting tone, though, even if one of the cooler moments was just a dragon flash-roasting a fish in mid-air and eating it.
Step up your game, GoT! We want to lose our minds and yell at our TVs!! LOLz!
