‘Thrones’ offers up shoddy pulp
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.
