‘Thrones’ of­fers up shoddy pulp

Los Angeles Times - - FEEDBACK -

I thought the burning of the in­no­cent child on the last seg­ment of “Game of Thrones” to be hor­ri­fy­ing and dis­gust­ing.

It’s seems like the writ­ers are choos­ing the low­est com­mon de­nom­i­na­tor— be­trayal, mur­der and massacre— to arouse emo­tion in the viewer. Creepy. It just gets old.

We have the Spar­rows and Harpys go­ing on their mur­der­ous ram­pages, but the choice to kill the dar­ling lit­tle child by burning at the stake struck a low blow with me.

Thiswas not en­ter­tain­ment but shoddy pulp. It breaks my heart to see the child scream­ing for her fa­ther, her mother, some­one to save her and no one has the courage to make a move.

Be­sides, she­was one of the most in­ter­est­ing char­ac­ters in the show.
