“Thrones” Again: Season 5 Continues

I just finished watching the seventh episode of Game of Thrones (Season 5) on DVD.

In this season, there is a religious cult called the Faith Militant which reminds me of the Taliban.  It’s a wonder even Cersei (Lena Headey), who ends up being arrested by the cult, tolerates it.  I take it she was pleased by the Militants’ treatment of Margaery (Natalie Dormer), social-climbingly married to Cersei’s young son.

Speaking of Dormer, I’m glad she is now permitted by the show to exercise her acting chops:  She convinces as an angry Margaery as well as a sweet and sly one. . . Also, there seems to be better cinematography than in the past—better lighting, more beauty.  Truth to tell, although too much nudity appears in the series, much of this beauty can be seen in the excellent body of the show-offy Tyene, played by the California-born (not British) Rosabell Laurenti Sellers.
