Game of Thrones and Violence in Media

I take it you've never seen Takashi Miike's AUDITION.

I forced myself to watch trainspotting once.

I guess because this thread wasn't bumped that people who would be offended by Sunday's episode stopped watching.

So many people found it very disturbing.

Yes, the episode's ending that showed Sansa's wedding-night experience was really unpleasant.  I would rather not have seen it.  I don't remember that scene from the books, but in any case, such things tend to have a stronger emotional impact if they are represented on video.  


One thing that occurs to me is that video is a much more effective medium than books, if one wants to transmit a sense of horror at how people can treat other people.  Books are great in their own way, but it is more difficult to use that medium to induce that kind of response.
