I thought Stevens was a good Gregor, though obviously not one with a hell of a lot of material to work with. Interested to see what Whyte will bring to the role, which should be a little beefier this year.

But it did seem (to me) to introduce a lot of... large characters.
Quite. As I think I observed elsewhere (or earlier this thread?) Meereen in ADWD is just a patsiche of Orientalist cliches. The decadent, effeminate east contrased with the masculine west.
And Westeros is a mass of cliches too lol, though well-done ones. If Ned Stark was any more honor-bound he'd be a Klingon!
