this is when jaime [sort of spoiler]really starts to become one of the most interesting characters. it's one of my favorite arcs.

Yup, best episode. Cersei stole the show with two scenes, but I feel like she's gonna go back to being a bitch next time.

Also, there's 3 episodes left? Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Actually only 2 (although I strongly suspect the last one will be a 2 hour finale).

yeah it'll be 10 hours total.


i'm reading the thread on the rottentomatoes forum about game of thrones. man, what a bunch of whiners. there are a lot more book readers there, but they're most finicky and demanding "fans" ever. how can a person not be able to comprehend the fundamental concept that a screen adaption of novel source material is going to be an ADAPTION not a fucking word for word transplant--which wouldn't even work in the first place. what fools. like omg my fave one page scene where so and so says such and such isn't there! agh! or they make tywin look more like a human being and less like a ruthless one-dimesional cunt. oh no! what a shame the show does a better job of fleshing out an interesting character. one guy says the last episode was the worst one yet and has made him consider not watching anymore episodes because: he doesn't like the hound's actor (who's actually awesome imo), he wasn't impressed by the mountain's new actor (all 10 seconds of his scene with tywin), the jaime scene wasn't in the books, and some other idiotic complaint. those were some of the worst, but there's still tons of crap like that.

if you don't think the show is awesome on its own because you just don't like it then that's okay. but if you complain because it's not exactly like how YOU want it to be, despite the show on its own being great and condensing so much into so little time that it's inevitable some scenes are omitted, some characters cut out, some serving double functions, some given more screen time, some less, then please STFU. all of the major plot events and character arcs are in the show. i guess it's inevitable that a bunch of book readers will bitch about it, just like with lord of the rings, but right now i just want to throttle some of them. a bunch of negative nancies and debbie downer babies.

A word for word transplant in any adapatation would be entirely useless and should never be made. These people irritate me to no end. It's one thing to complain about an adaptation destroying the essence of something and making it worse (the more recent Harry Potter movies are especially good examples of this) but quite another to complain about using different sequences to establish characters and fleshing them out a bit more. My friend who has read the books points out that almost every change has been one for the better.

I think the Lord of the Rings complaints were more valid because of the subtracted depth (although the movies are still great).

No, it's three. The closing promo was in error.

Man I love the Tywin-Arya scenes.


Someone on another board suggested a spinoff with nothing but Tywin and Arya talking for an hour. I'M SO THERE! :thumb:

Ah cool. As long as I get my 10 hours I don't much care how they do it.
