well i was recommended to watch this series and now i'm up to date. i found the show overall quite average, and the characters uninteresting except for the imp and arya. it has great moments (visery getting hot gold melted on his face) but not enough to make a solid series. as for sean bean character being decapitated well he got what he deserved. he decapitated some poor boy just because he saw the white walkers so i felt no compassion for him whatsoever.
