This will be the final season of game of thrones Q screen panel has some thoughts about the season premiere Donald Trump's at dark Knight campaign video Donald clubbers mysterious new movie, lots to talk about John samba as an arts reporter based here in Toronto. Hi, john. Good morning. Antena Hassani is a journalist. She lives out in Victoria, British Columbia. Hello Tina morning. But right now at this moment, we all live in west rose. Oh god. Tom. What are those aren't even own a TV? Yes. The answers west road. Thank you very much. I know that you fell John that last season of game of thrones was a little too fast paced action packed for your liking last night was the premier how did season eight turnout? Well, the action packed stuff. I like it's the pacing. It's the sense that like everything is just kind of being thrown together as we're in the end game. And I think last night we kind of got back to what we might call classic game of thrones. I mean, certainly images in the episode echoed the series premiere episode from eight years ago, and there was a lot of this sort of stuff that a lot of fans, or at least myself like which is organizing different people bringing people together this idea of thority and trying to legitimate that authority, which I think is at the core of the show. And there was a lot of that fun stuff. And also, I mean, it's the stuff that people call place setting maybe bit boring tedious. But if you love game of thrones, I think you have to love tedium to some extent the spending. I've heard like ten million dollars per episode on this thing, can you can you see it? Yeah. I mean, even in the sort of extras in the scenes of the armies and stuff like that. Maybe not this because you didn't have a huge battle sequence. Like we've seen in the last couple of seasons. But I feel like all that is coming down the pike. Tina, what did you think of the first episode of the new season of game of thrones? I cried there's a there's a moment where people who've watched the show will know what I'm talking about where Jon snow and REI get to reunite. And I mean, everyone around the world I was like oh my God. Finally, they reunite and everyone just started crying. It was pretty great."
