This... she just wanders and wanders.... a little bit of a pay off for her but not worth the amount of nothing she has in the book.. Other people will pay off in th end though.

And her chapters are some of the longest ones with no end in sight...

Ironborn and Dorne are all interesting... Cersei and Brienne were just fillers.

I know DWD runs concurrently with this book. The show will have a tough time with anything beyond season 4 if they want to stay loyal to the books. At this rate the show will eclipse it soon. GRRM is an idiot if he thinks they can make book AFFC into 2 seasons.

AFFC and ADWD will be 2 seasons combined.

To be honest, I liked the Cersei chapters, there's a definite payoff in the end.. at least for me.

In white She digs her own hole throughout the book.

They make 10 episodes for thousand page books. They could make 3 seasons per book if they wanted to.

They can, and they won't. There is a reason that they don't. Sure it could be budget or length of the book, but the main reason is they want to keep the show intense and fast paced. They don't want to put the viewer to sleep.

I dont think thats it because a lot of what they cut is exciting. The fist of the first men battle was a massive swordfight vs zombies. And they have us...hear it...offscreen.

They cut a zombie swordfight to keep things exciting? Nah...
Im sure the money is a massive part of it.

Yeah, they've cut a ton of battles. The battle where Tyrion makes his bones, and kills that horse with the spike on his helmet, is completely passed over by him getting conked in the face right on the way out and blacking out.

It was a nifty little story telling gimmick to get them out of having to stage who knows how many extras and use a ton of CGI to make that battle look true to the books, but it did cut like a hundred pages right out of the book.

If you haven't noticed by now the show has never done any flashbacks. They don't even do dreams except for Bran since it's hard to develop him without it.

Would have loved a flashback of Robert's rebellion, but how could they make Robert thin and strong?

Also would have loved a flashback Jaime killing Aerys.
