First off, unless you've somehow watched all the unmade episodes, then the vast majority of show we're watching is Season 1, so I'm not sure what you mean by "watching the wrong show."If you're going to complain about magic and magical creatures (whose occurences will only increase) because the 1st season only featured on or two short scenes of magically related events then you're watching the wrong show.
I'm just saying the use of magic as a plot device for that particular instance was severe compared to anything that came before it. There was minimal exposition before the fact, and the result drastically altered the distribution of power. For a show where each plotline develops over the course of many episodes, that one developed awfully quick.
Just my opinion.
That is certainly the impression I got from the first season.dwell said:Magic in Game of Thrones is like say, technology in normal movies and shows -- it's in the background. For instance, you may have a cop show where a dude sends an email. The focus is not the computer, it's a show about cops. Magic is treated the same way on Game of Thrones. Someone may cast a spell but it's really not in the forefront.
I hope that all makes sense.
