I hate to say this but all of the haters here are baby formation of both guys. Its just that its suppressed and it doesn't have proper venting mechanations. First you have to be a hater. Then you have your mind introduced to ways to cause pain. Then there is no stopping it. When you have only one guy in every 30,000 living good it breeds the negative side of the brain into madness.

If he caught them, he would flay them, chop 'em up, and feed them to his dogs.

From the ASoiaF wiki: Ramsay openly enjoys abusive and sick practices such as having young women stripped naked and released into the Bolton forests, before hunting them with a pack of feral dogs. He gives a quick death to women who give him good sport (after raping them first), then flays their corpses. He likes to name his dogs after the women he enjoys most to "honor" them. The women who don't give him good sport are raped and then flayed alive. All the skins of his kills are brought back with him to the Dreadfort as gruesome trophies. The bodies of the woman are fed to his dogs.

He is miles more psychotic than Joffrey.

I think this says more about George RR Martin than anything Seriously dude, WTF!

Jon Snow not so much.

The Hound's timing is off the hook much like Tywin and Tyrion's. For a big guy he's killing those scenes with Arya. Its a hard thing to do when the girl is constantly being victimized by the world and you can't coddle her, but is still her protector. His back and forth with her is every bit as good as Tywin/Arya scenes, and he is always eating while delivering well timed lines.

What Ramsay did to Theon in the show was worse than in the books really. That was maybe ultimate torture. Man plays on innate human fears and desires.

Reading the books now. Boring as fvck.


This guy spends too much time describing the setting and the details when in reality the words he is using is hard as hell for me to imagine what he is trying to say. Thank god for the show.

Edit: Ever since I found out what GRRM looks like, anyone find it hard to take what he writes seriously? I encourage writers to stay anonymous and use a penname or something... unless you're a hot bitch.

The Audiobook is even worse, everyone was raving about it but the author reads a little too slow for my taste. Audiobooks are only good for books like 48 Laws of Power.

I started this series over again (the show not the books). Yeah the Stark's are bunch of Fukc ups! So many dumb moves and non moves. Now I cant believe I actually felt something for the Starks.

My whole perspective changed now.

Did you notice that in the very first episode, Tyrion's very first scene he had short blonde hair and every scene after that he had long curly brownish hair? Might of been a director hiccup there.

I noticed that its not only Tyrion but Jaimie as well. The dont have royal bathes with rose petals etc etc...

Yeah I just am so angry at myself for caring about these IDIOTS! Every move they made was dumb and every move they didnt make was even DUMBER! Good Riddance to bad rubbish!

So many things you miss the first time through. Luckily my wife is getting into this series and gives me a new perspective.

I just read the "Mysha" part in the book and I have to say the show put a little too much emphasis on that part and definitely didn't deserve to name the whole episode Mysha.

Also the casting of Barristan Selmy... what was the show thinking casting that guy? He doesn't resemble a Barristan Selmy at all...
