‘GAME OF THRONES’ REFERENCE IN ‘MODERN LOVE’ SEASON 2
In episode three of season 2, titled, “Strangers on a Dublin Train”, there is a short and witty reference to ‘Game Of Thrones’. In the scene, we see Kit Harrington, who is playing the character of Michael, have an endearing first meet moment with the medievalist Paula, played by Lucy Boynton, in a train. Micheal talks about his new love interest with his brother Declan (Jack Reynor), where the brother goes on to say, “OK. So, like Game of Thrones and stuff?” To which Michael had a very strange and angered response.
THIS IS WHAT KIT HARRINGTON HAS TO SAY ABOUT THE ‘GOT’ REFERENCE
In an interview with “E online”, Harrington says that he said yes to be a part of season 2 only because of the GOT reference line. He said, “No, that was in the script. And it’s one of the main reasons I did the piece. You know, I read that and I pissed myself laughing”.
He further added that showrunner John Carney asked if Harrington wanted to delete this line from the script. However, Kit refused to do so. He said,
“I said, ‘No!’… What I like about that moment, without giving too much away about the joke, is that you get the feeling that Michael, the character, has never seen the show, but it could also work on a level of, like, me the actor going, ‘Don’t even go there’”.
REVIEWS OF ‘MODERN LOVE’ SEASON 2
While many critics were satisfied with the intriguing storyline, many felt that season 2 lacked depth with underwritten characters. Matt Roush from “TV insider” highly appreciated the element of surprise. He said, “Modern Love can make you laugh, weep, sigh, shudder or swoon, sometimes all within a single story. Even when this exceptionally well-cast and admirably diverse series plays by the romance genre’s rules, there’s usually an element of surprise”.
On the other hand, Roxana Hadadi from “Roger Ebert”, said that the characters lacked chemistry, “Contrived situations, underwritten characters, and a lack of chemistry between many of these romantic pairings mean that Modern Love often drags”.
