If you learned 46 things from a GoT exhibit, your parents may have needed to talk to you more.

It took me a minute, but I finally realized that the actor playing Jojen was the kid from the Human Nature two parter on Doctor Who.

Since GRRM is writing the screen plays for the show. What if instead of writing books 6 and 7 and then writing the screenplay adaptations he writes the screenplays for those seasons for HBO and then when all is said and done, he turns them into books to complete the series? I think he could do it, AND I think it might . It ensures the series finished on time and prevents him from having to do double work by writing the novels and their small screen version,

I just don't understand why there was no GoT discussion thread.  Wasn't there an episode tonight?  (no HBO here, my sister puts it on a usb for me)

How about you just enjoy something for what it is and not give a fark about what other people think about it? You would actually deny experiencing something just because it's popular?

When it's abundantly obvious that the only reason it's popular is because someone, somewhere decided to declare it as popular, yes.  That's exactly what happened with a lot of other pop culture abominations throughout American history.  The problem is that these people are literally declaring themselves as history ahead of time.  And that is the hallmark of empty hype.

Yep, that must be it. That's certainly got nothing to do with the stellar writing, the engaging story, the memorable and deep characters, the great production values and visual design.
It's only popular because we are all sheeps, and were ordered to like it. Fortunately, you are here to open our eyes, and show us the error of our ways.
Actually, I really wonder why they bother with the effort, if it was all it would take to make something popular.

I heard they were making 2 seasons out of SoS.  If so, it's season 5 that will outright suck.

You're right, I have to confess, it was me.  I declared Game of Thrones popular and singlehandedly caused millions of people to tune in each week and watch a show that clearly has no artistic merit, and quite obviously lacks quality in the production and acting areas as well.  I also forced those millions of people who buy and love George RR Martin's books to tune in to the show because they never would have done that otherwise.  In fact, I'm amazed my royalty checks from HBO haven't begun arriving yet, I'll have to call them about that.

What we can all be thankful for is that you have now called me out on this and since everyone knows the popularity of the show is the work of one man, everyone can stop watching and go back to their reruns of American Idol and Teen Mom. It's a good thing you're waking people up so they can stop liking what you don't like.

Its not that ridiculous. If you have to place a disclaimer in the beginning of a book explaining that you are going to jump around a lot, you really aren' that prolific a writer. Add to that the location names that remind me of 7th grade d&d campaigns and the sheer number of characters introduced that real depth is not possible. Add all that togvether and GoT really isn't that well written, just well promoted.

The critics who got an advanced screening of the first 4 said the first two were slow and focused on laying foundation, but the 3rd and 4th episodes were exceptional.

Plus, the true king can't be in every episode.  Stannis will be back next week, I'm sure.

The thing I learned was how short a work Brienne of Tarth can make of Jamie Lannister.  I didn't see her handing him his ass like that.  My respect for her grows.

Did it say that Varys knows Jon Snow is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark?

And that Varys tells Daenerys as soon as he is able to do so in person (when she's about to kill him)?

And that Daenerys goes to the wall to find her cousin and give him a dragon?

At least it better be Varys.  I hope he doesn't introduce some loyal targaryen minion out of the woodwork that has to explain it.

That's one of the limitations to having a huge cast of characters spread out over several locations: there simply isn't enough time to focus on everyone's storyline in every hour-long episode. That said, I'm still interested in seeing how the entire series' arc will play out - and that means periodically having to wade through scenes with characters like Theon & Jeyne Westerling Talisa Maegyr in order to get to the 'good stuff' with Jon Snow, etc.

He was still in cuffs though. Still enjoyed seeing him get his ass kicked.

Please no spoilers question: are we supposed to care about sersei? (Spelling is probs off) she literally has nothing going on and no goals or ambition. I don't understand why she is a main character or should I be picking up on something that has been going on in the show?

thecpt: I don't understand why she is a main character or should I be picking up on something that has been going on in the show?


She had a ton of influence while Robert was king and expected to take over completely when Joffrey got the crown, but you know how that turned out..  Cersei acts tough and isn't particularly likeable, but in a lot of ways, she's the show's punching bag.  Even when she wins, she loses.  Now, Margery is threatening to take what little influence she has left.

Keep in mind Jamie was still shackled.  And he's been rotting in a Stark prison cell for months.

In the first Sookie Stackhouse book (spoiler), LaFayette was killed at the end.

The network liked him so much that they ignored book cannon completely and kept him on as a main character.  I don't know if they'll be willing to take it that far with GoT, but it's possible.

Kaeishiwaza:

I admit, the onscreen Brienne/Jamie scenes are a lot more interesting for me than how that relationship played out in the books. Gwendoline Christie & Nikolaj Coster-Waldau do a great job.

No spoilers answer: My take is that Cersei is now serving merely as a foil to help illustrate just how out-of-control Joffrey is as king...and as a contrast to Margaery, the younger & more politically savvy future queen.

I don't doubt the show's producers/writers will take liberties with GoT book cannon (esp. since Martin tends to meander aimlessly through his own world at times), but I'm not such a hardcore lover of cannon to have a problem with this. For example, I enjoyed the scenes with Arya & Tywin (although those never happened in the books.) I basically appreciate both the books & the tv series for what they are (or may become.)

/also like Nelsan Ellis as Lafayette & glad they kept that character
