“Game Of Thrones” sends its regards: “Cursed” on Netflix has its own coffee mug moment
The final season of “Game Of Thrones” not only caused a lot of discussions at the end, but also with a small production-related faux pas. Something similar has happened in the new Netflix hit “Cursed”.
The eighth and final season of “Game Of Thrones” is known to split the fan base. Before the actual conclusion, strangely enough, something completely different caused a lot of discussion material on the Internet in the season: In episode 4, a modern coffee mug placed in front of Daenerys caught the eye for a moment, which definitely did not belong there (the faux pas has since become digital afterwards away).
Such small film and series errors creep into productions every now and then, after all, with works of this size, you can’t always pay attention to everything. In a story set in a medieval fantasy setting (which also has an audience of millions), such mishaps are of course particularly noticeable – and so it is now also with “Cursed – The Chosen One” …
A cling film is the new coffee mug
During a conversation between Merlin (Gustaf Skarsgård) and Lady Lunette (Polly Walker) in episode 5 of “Cursed” (from about minute 44) on the lavishly LOSMOVIES table in front of the latter you can clearly see a cling film with a blue border or a clasp does not go well with the surroundings, which are mainly filled with festive delicacies. And actually it can be seen in the picture a lot longer than the infamous “GoT” coffee mug at the time:

Later shots in the scene, in which there is no trace of it, indicate that the foil was probably left there by mistake:
It now remains to be seen whether Netflix will correct this little slip – similar to the “Game Of Thrones” makers – or whether it will simply be retained as a charming anachronism.
In any case, of course, the whole thing doesn’t detract from the success of “Cursed”. The series has held its own at the top of the daily Netflix top 10 of the currently most watched content on the streaming platform since it was released a week ago.
