The name changes grate on me more than anything else they changed from the books (and, honestly, a lot of those changes are for the better, tightening up meandering plots and clarifying motivations).  Every time Theon's sister shows up, I practically scream at the TV "Her name is Asha, not Yara!"

/making Osha a fairly hot young woman instead of a middle-aged crone was a pretty good choice too

I am enjoying this season, but I'm not finding it the same sort of compelling that I did last season. I don't give two shiats if Theon lives or dies, and their snail-like pace with Daenerys has pretty much moved me to the point where I'm utterly bored with her entire story line. If they'd replaced every single scene this season involving her with additional footage of Arya and The Hound, I think I'd like it much better.

These questions are kinda pointless for people who've read the books. Headlines for GOT like this should start, "Are you too busy to read books? Do you need to talk about last night's TV shows on Monday morning instead of being a productive employee? Then here are some questions for you to discuss online."

They've already deviated a little bit from the books, IIRC.

/ example; Lysa Arryn knows who Sansa is.

Jon knows Bran's alive
Jon's group killed the mutineers
Everything going on with Arya and the Hound right now

...they've made a few changes, but I like them.

Yeah, the changes to Bran's storyline so far have been interesting.  In the books, once he's north of the Wall, he pretty much reaches his destination with very little incident afterwards.  Having him fall into the clutches of the Craster's Keep mutineers was an interesting touch.

I liked the Hound and Arya in the books.

It was like Calvin and Hobbes if Suzie Derkins was the misfit loner and her imaginary friend was a mutilated knight and Calvin was a piece of chicken.

I don't know why I'm so sympathetic towards Theon/Reek but I am. I want to see him get vengeance and make up for his wrong doings. Either way he's cockless, which sucks really bad for him. I remember in the books he was supposed to have a full head of white hair, was unrecognizable, and smelt like complete shiat even after being bathed.

Dany gets her freak on with the dragons while Tyrion seduces Oberyn to get him to vote "not guilty" in the trial.

Who the Fark is Yara?

Seriously though, I understand there's some things they need to change for the transition to the screen, but what possible purpose could changing her name from Asha to Yara have?

because you already have the wildling chick Osha. In a series with twice the characters of a Dickens novel, you can't have names that are too similar.

I agree completely. The only reasoning I can think of is that it sounds too similar to Osha.

That was the rationale apparently.  Since Osha showed up first Asha lost the name game.

I don't watch this show and I'm not here to crap on it, in fact everyone that I know who does watch it tells me it's really good, and I'm sure they're right.

That said, "Daenerys"? What the hell kind of a name is that for a character? It screams third rate derivative fantasy genre. Like sci fi characters with too many apostrophes in their names. It sounds like a trendy baby name. Daenerys.

Now get off my lawn
