Season two was much tighter and gives me hope going forward.

Breaking Bad is a better show IMO.


How did you find season 1 "silly"? Just curious as to your take thats all.

Silly as in, they were trying to throw every buzzword they could into every episode. Necrophilia, rape, child rape, lesbians, incest, midgetporn, breastfeeding a grown man, etc. It's almost as if a horny/dorky 13 year old was writing it.

They toned it wayy down in season 2. There's still some of it, but it's not as in-your-face. They're focusing on the characters and the story more than trying to "shock" the viewer, which is good.

As I said, things are looking good going forward.

Will it though? A storm of swords is well over a thousand pages, yet they are going to try to fit it all in 10 episodes?

You need to read up on this.. you seem to be missing a lot of information.

It's been confirmed the 9th episode is the Red Wedding.

Seems like the 9th episode of every season is the best, most shocking, etc (Ned's death S1, Blackwater battle S2, Red Wedding S3)

It really does kill the joy.. I pretty much try my best to shelve these books or shows and stop trying to anticipate them until the date is close. Otherwise it just heightens the expectations to an unreasonable level and gets you frustrated in a way that serves as an eventual buzz kill.

When was the necrophilia, rape, and child rape? I don't remember.

He is not very accurate in his evaluations and complaints.

An 8 year old boy is a grown man? You realize this was all in the books too, right?
