    Adjust my TV settings? So it's my fault? Blaming the victim Fabian. I guess we shouldn't talk back you you might smack us right? We had it coming. It's our fault?

    *it was dark and that why it’s good. Gave a very realistic feeling of being in that battle and difficulty to see some places, just like the people in that movie. Great experience and decision by Director. Why make another battle scene that we already saw a thousand times.*

    I agree with you. I didn't have any problems watching it, I didn't even think about it. I was so anxious watching the fights, not being sure about who was winning or losing; I enjoyed that feeling, I do believe it was intentional and if it was, I loved it.

    Just because it looked right on whatever device the cinematographer watched it does not mean he did his job right. He should have tested it by watching an HBO compressed version and brightened it up to compensate. This is akin to producing a driverless car that doesn't drive safely and blaming it on the roads. Luckily the results aren't as life threatening.

    The only problem was not in "too dark" but in the senseless defending strategy. You dont need to be Sun tzu to see there was "something wrong" and that is what destroyed faith in the leaders of the living. There are no words to describe how bad and stupid these castle defenders were shown by the creator. I'll just leave some links of an example how this battle should be played with full realism: vireporter.net/v/video-EA5mJRFaI8c.html or vireporter.net/v/video-jY2jAnV5Fa4.html

    That a boy, just as I figured, you defend a 55 night time filming that no one can see. Don't give us credit knowing that it was at night, we know that, and personally, a little light on the set would just sit fine with me. Waited around 8 years for this and I saw nothing.

    I didn't stream it. I dl'd a 4 GB copy with bittorent, watched it with VLC on a good Dell HD monitor, and to see anything had to crank the brightness and contrast ridiculously high. And then it was just murky and washed out. What were they thinking?! The big battle everyone's been waiting for, and then it looks like crap? SMH

    oh yeah, compression and pixelation is also notorious for causing extreme quick cuts, shaky cam, and bad shot composition. everyone knows that. duh!

    Fans' complaint is not that the episode was dark and full of terrors. Fans' complaint is that the episode was dark and full of errors.

    Bruh yall tripping, this episode was awesome af. Ppl complaining about the way the NK died but I think people are forgetting aryan was beat while blind folded for a whole season, of course she could kill him without much struggle like almost any other character. #2 If John had a 1 on 1 with the NK the fight would have been 20 seconds MAX lol if you wanna be realistic, dont forget he is among the best swords man if not THEY best. A 1v1 would also be impossible to be uninterrupted as well because of the amount of whites there were. Not many characters died you say? THESE ARE THE BEST fighters and most experienced you can find. Especially 30lb idiots that cant take a single hit with valarian steel or dragon glass and realistically it would be highly unlikely for them to actually die if they are in a defendable position and don't get overwhelmed. This episode was great but all these bandwagoners riding the dicks of the minority who didn't like the episode smh

    I watched in a dark room & tried to adjust tv settings. COMPLETELY USELESS. I was watching a black screen with occasional pieces of firelit dark clothing. I had no idea who was on screen or WTF was happening. Totally pointless. I get the idea of aesthetic, & going for giving the message of "the world without Light" & "Endless Night", but that's a beat. You show it & then move on to ALLOW your VIEWERS to ACTUALLY SEE. IT IS A VISUAL PLATFORM. If YOUR AUDIENCE CAN'T SEE ANYTHING...WHAT'S THE POINT OF SHOOTING IT?!!! They didn't even have decent dialogue to carry the darkness. I truly had NO IDEA what was going on. My internet was just fine, & it was on my huge screen TV. Waste of time.

    The crap lighting is just a metaphor for the crap storyline for the battle. Not a single white walker fought! Not a single major character outside of Jorah and Theon (who both should have died in previous season). The feared Dothraki who Denaerys has been dragging along since season 1 and who finally made the trek across the narrow sea all got wiped out in 15 seconds! Ghost, who we haven’t seen for like 2 full seasons, likely died with the Dothraki (I really hope he comes back). The battle plan was crap, and we only saw a single giant! This was supposed to be the battle of all battles! We’ve been waiting for this since the first 5 minutes of episode 1 of the entire show! Idk, hope the rest of the season is better, but this was a huge disappointment

    I think people are missing the point... it was meant to be dark. It was a battle at night in the middle of a winter storm. What were people expecting? Electric street lamps every where?

    Excuses...watched in my living room lights off. Hate to say it this episode kinda sucked. 11 weeks for this? Shame, shame, shame. I don't have some cheap 300 dollar tv, and I do know how to change the settings and I don't stream.

  59. Dark Wizard

    I didn't have problem watching it despite the dark scenery. Of course watching it in dark room is recommendable but this is not the case. The truth is than only a few scenes are hard to follow and specifically those after the initial charge of the undead. But the reason is not only the darkness but the fast pacing of camera shots. Actually this happens in many battle scenes from TV shows and epic-fantasy movies where the initial contact of belligerents is depicted with fast pacing scenes. From the moment the undead climbed the walls of Winterfell all scenes were clear. Fast but clear. The fire was illuminating the rest of the scenes. You could see who was attacking each undead on the crenels and inside the castle yard. You could see most of the character-centered fights such as the attack of the giant and Lyanna's death, Jorah and Theon's last stands, Jon Snow solo inside the castle corridors, Arya's solo and the assistance she got from Hound and Beric. All these scenes were clear through an expected dark environment. It would be unrealistic to expect more lighting to a fight during a dark, snowy and foggy night. All in all, it was a great episode with many epic and emotional moments, combining successfully elements of epic fantasy, action, drama and claustrophobic survival horror. The music was also exciting and intensified the suspense and drama the right moments. For me this episode has changed TV-series history with that richness of good elements along with a few more GOT episodes.

    ok... these journalists.... no the best fitting to talk about the subject. Pretty halfwit comments from them. To get a girl who doesn't even knows how to calibrate the tv color to talk about cinematographic intentions... "not too bright" for me.
