Game of Thrones – The Wildfire Scene

Warning: Game of Thrones Spoiler-ish.

HBO's Game of Thrones has been simply incredible in it's run up to this point, no doubt about that. But every once in a while you're reminded that you are watching a tv show, like when theres a battle that you don't really see, but rather just hear about in the aftermath. This is mainly due to budgetary limits, not that they are skimping, mind you, the scope has been grand, especially in it's current second season.

But last night's Blackwater episode, which I just got done watching with Rika before heading to work, blurred the lines between a big scale Hollywood film and "another HBO drama". It was simply massive, and with such a big chunk of this season preparing the viewer for this inevitable clash, it had a lot of chances to land flat on its face. But instead it delivered, FUCKIN' BIG TIME. None more so evident than the Wildfire scene, which will be remembered for a long, long time.
