    You have to make allowances for the packaging. TV is restricted by time slots and seasons. But a 900 page book is just a 900 page book that you read at your own pace. I think they have done a good job of capturing the scope and sweep of the story, how large and encompassing it is. But a lot of the depth and texture had to get the ax for the sake of fitting it in the space allotted. I know people that haven't read the books and have no intention of doing so, that think this is the best show "evar". So I guess what I'm saying is read books, they are better than TV.

    Edit: The Dunk and Egg shorts are fucking rad.

    agreed. pretty much all arya scenes are my favorite and they would be smart not to fuck with them. am i wrong or wasnt it bolton and the leeches at harrenhal and not tywin? do you think theyre gonna cut out the boltons? have they been mentioned? they are sinister as fuck.

    on a different note ive been saying "winter is coming" very inappropriately in social and sexual situations and it is amazing

    Roose had a quick cameo. I'm guessing they're not gonna refer to them until the Theon/Winterfell thing gets more fleshed out, then they'll introduce the bastard...

    no doubt, I understand that things need to be done differently to deliver for TV.

    I just hate the fact that some things they literally change things that happen or characters etc.

    NBB, I will check out the novellas for sure, I have heard they are the start of his work in this genre.

    There are a lot of things they are changing because it doesn't add or take away from the story. Like instead of loras thinking brienne killed renly, he just believes stannis did it. Which makes sense for the show because as soon as she gets to kings landing he starts to believe her.

    okay the end of that episode kinda bummed me out...why add such a wild unnecessary element like the dragons getting stolen and hella her people getting murdered? like what? why? also it's hard for me to get into this arya/tywin plotline since it is also entirely fabricated by the hbo writers.

    one positive, im feeling the casting for ygritte. that girl is attractive.

    I tend to watch the new episodes on Monday nights, so I haven't actually seen the episode, but I'm also pretty disappointed in some of the changes that I've already read about. As I said previously, it's been fun to watch, but it's going to end up being hugely different from the books very soon here. Too many characters and plot lines are going to end up getting cut, they're going to have to find other ways to tie things together, and it's all going to fall apart/turn into a different story where some of the characters and events happen to be the same. Then they'll have a giant orgy with all the female characters and CGI dragons and HBO will cancel it well before GRRM ever finishes the last 2 books.

    Dany doesn't do shit in clash of kings. She has like 5 chapters. I think Tyrion has 15. My guess is the warlocks stole the dragons because it gives her a legit reason to go to the house of the undying and go crazy on the warlocks. As opposed to in the book where she goes for no reason.

    It makes sense for the tv show to give her more to do.
