Stannises daughter was sadly not written for the show. Great summary btw.

The show is turning into a god damn soap opera that pathetically and transparently strives to please everyone and attract all types of viewers while sacrificing all the little touches that made these books great. Watching GOT is turning into something that I just gotta do, **** Benioff and Weiss with their compromises and stupid personal interpretations.

I don't fault HBO for their interpretation. This is a colossal work to condense into a series and they have to keep the drama level up to entertain the viewer. I kinda like the tweaks so far. It would be tedious to watch a strict interpretation of the books.

I haven't read the Sookie Stackhouse books but I suppose it's the same for True Blood. I assume the producers throw a morsel from the books out every now and then for the diehard fans like they do in GOT.

The Sookie Stackhouse stories have very little to do with the True Blood show at this point. They veered way off the track once they kept Lafayette alive. I only ready a couple of them, and the change in character tone alone is a much different perspective even on the stuff that remains accurate to the plot points in the books.

That's the main reason I haven't read the books, I know that once I read them I won't be able to enjoy the series as much as I do now. Lucky for me

What the **** happened in this episode?! Honestly. Some crazy ass shit going on.

No wonder the people in the 1400's and 1500's wanted to burn witches to death.

Lmao it only gets better. Anyways for the posters who have read the books what do you think of the changes they made to it? Personally I think they spent entirely too much time with that stupid Joffrey scene. We get it the kid is a psycho, that time could have been better spent extending the what happens at the end of the show

Shit. Sucks that I'm still reading the first book.

Anyway, I wonder what role Arya will play in this. Hopefully it's something cool.
