Tried the first episode last night but didn't make it to the end. It's not the new GOT.

It's not GoT, nor does it try to be. It's a completely different story with different characters and a different world.

That's not fair. We've all had BMs better than the last two seasons of GOT. 

 

We finished the first episode of Shadow and Bone but I doubt we will stick with it. 

 

The storytelling is hampered by the lack of a map. It isn't until the end of the episode you realize who is where and when with respect to "the fold." By then, most people will give up. The intro credits clockwork map was a major strength of GOT.

I agree with the confused geography and the different nations largely unexplained. Trapanese's score is alright, if a little anonymous in being light on thematic material and instead relying on powerful ostinato-driven pieces.

Of course not. Even if the later seasons of GOT weren't fully up to scratch, it was still engaging because of the entire setup of those first seasons. And the dialog was still better than what I heard in Shadow & Bone. Then there are the completely uninteresting cardboard characters ... GOT it is NOT.

Visually, from the trailers at least, this looks pretty B-movie fantasy anyway. Certainly not screaming GOT to me.

I dunno, a Fantasy kingdom, a giant wall, ...

Must it really be made of ice before people see it? ;)

It's not a wall. It's a magical storm that people want to get through, but can't. 

 

In GOT, it's a wall that people don't want to get through... 

 

Until the Wildlings are introduced and define it as a magical wall that they want to get through, but can't. 

 

Damnit.

@JNHFan2000, you started this thread full of excitement about the new show - and its score - and then have not really returned to this thread to share your thoughts now that it's out.


So let's hear your thoughts on this show!  Try to sell people here on watching it with you!

And tell us what you think about Trapaneze's score!

We just watched the second episode. It's slow world building. 

 

If that's the Little Palace, where's the Big one?

I myself loved the show. It is indeed a slow burn but absolutely worth the watch. From epusode 5 on the show goes from kind of slow, to action packed and reveal after reveal.

 

The cast is great. Especially Ben Barnes. The Visuals are also beautiful. And I get that people are a bit confused about the world and what is exactly about. But it will get much more clear.

 

As for Trapanese's score. It also takes some time to get used to, but there a a couple of themes that I liked and tge score album on it's own is very enjoyable.

I'm especially fond of the tracks 'Court Demonstration' & 'Her Name Is Alina Starkov'.

Sorry to hear that. "Slow burn" would have been a big selling point to me. "Action-packed" and "reveal after reveal" are not selling points to me. But it's on my list, so I'll check it out when I get the time.

I saw S1 and was really impressed.

 

There are a couple of things to dislike about the show, but the good definitely outweigh the bad.

 

I’d recommend this to anyone who’d like a new high quality show to watch.
