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.

Maybe pick up a book for children or young adults next time?

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...

Thats the only casting Ive been unhappy with, its a total wtf.. Hes a great actor and would be splendid in a different role.. but as Manse it makes no sense even for the show.
