”Game of thrones” is often described as a dark tv-series – something that many viewers will not have had anything against. But in the third episode of ”Game of thrones” last season, it is a literally dark. The long stridscenerna be difficult to interpret.
”Winterfellslaget, hajpat as the largest and longest stridsscenen ever, was for the most part incomprehensible due to the incredibly dim light; blurry images which made it look as if my tv stopped working during some crucial moment”, writes The Washington Post's reviewer.
”Game of thrones darkest episode ever?” asks the Swedish author Lars Wilderäng on his blog Cornucopia? and adds after having seen the first episode of the night: ”You need to seriously a really good monitor to see this, this section sets the requirements to the maximum in all the directions on the screen.”
USA Today thank one of the dragons and the Lord of the Light priestess of the small contribution of light that was used: ”the Scenes were often so dark that it was impossible to see the events if they happened to include the fire (thank you so much, Drogon and Melisandre).”
The new episode of ”Game of thrones” is 1 hour and 17 minutes long.
