Cersei makes my balls drop.

That weird medieval haircut just does nothing for her.

Just seen I wrote news

Naturally they will compress it - but it's possible to make it just as good or even better to me. Humiliation is something that is much more impactful of screen than it is in books, and so to is nudity.

I remember a pretty graphic description in the books of Tyrion's sad little dong when he was supposed to (spoilers in white text) get Sansa preggers.

I can't be the only one who thinks the prequel story about Robert's Rebellion is arguably better than the main storyline.

Rhaegar Targaryen vs Robert Baratheon

Howland Reed and Ned Stark vs Arthur Dayne

“And now it begins,” said Ser Arthur Dayne, the Sword of the Morning. He unsheathed Dawn and held it with both hands. The blade was pale as milkglass, alive with light.
“No,” Ned said with sadness in his voice. “Now it ends.”

Game of Thrones > Sopranos ?

You should kill yourself for this statement.

The only one that has a possibility of argument over Sopranos is The Wire. And I am not even sure about that.

First off, sopranos is overrated. I'd take the wire over it too. Second off, the depth of game of thrones is unmatched by sopranos. Game of thrones has wayyyy better characters and the roles they execute are perfect. Tywin, tyrion, recently Jaime, dany, etc. especially this season, the acting has been great and the story is a lot more interesting.

Apples and oranges, sure, but there were a lot of soprano episodes i couldn't keep my interest in. Game of thrones? Sheeeeit, I rewatch the episodes every once in a while. Just wait till this season is over, you will fcking jack off to the upcoming episodes.

Who would be the Tyrion's and Jon Snow's in these tho? Vulnerability is what hero's are made of in fantasy.

Robert seems like a bad ass tho - before the obesity, alcoholism and delusion. Would make for some epic battle scenes.

Benjen and Stannis would be two guys I would like to see fleshed out. Living in their brother's shadows, it would be interesting to see the decisions that led Benjen to join the Nights watch especially since what happened to Ned mirrored what happened to Rickard Stark and Brandon. Also there would be some seriously awesome father vs son tension going on with Rhaegar and Aerys.

If I recall right, Tywin went in on Jaime about being called King Slayer. Tywin knows everything. Why would he go off on Jaime having known the situation?

The Author's introduction of a hundred new characters every season makes it kind of unpractical. The production cost irks me every time I watch it. I'm surprised they co-signed for it. I really think the casting hire had to sell them on the idea of nudity and their acute eye for women with nice butts. Otherwise they don't do the show. You have to keep the audience grounded in some matter and they have done that right.
