Ha. I suppose I should check it out one of these days. I am just about finished with Dance with Dragons.

Because I watched season one before I started reading, I already had Jorah established in my head, so in spite of the relatively detailed book description, I never saw him as anything other than the show character while reading it, and honestly it never bothered me.

The stuff with the kids bothered me some. Mostly Arya Horseface as was mentioned, and her looking like John, and Sansa not really looking enough like her mother for me. But they're all pretty minor gripes.

What matters the most is that they're good actors imo.

TV Tywin > Book Tywin

From Entertainment Weekly:

Quote:
In what’s become a Game of Thrones tradition, the HBO fantasy hit has teamed with an acclaimed indie band for the upcoming season.
Thrones has landed Icelandic art-pop sensation Sigur Rós to appear in season four. Jón Ţór “Jónsi” Birgisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason are currently shooting an appearance on the Thrones set in Croatia. What will the band mates do? Will they play a song? Might a bowed guitar be involved?
We’re sworn to secrecy on the nature of the appearance. But they are musicians, so … let the speculation begin!
Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are longtime fans of Sigur Rós and would often listen to their music while shooting in Iceland (one of several countries used in the production of the show).

meh, doubtful. In what way? How faithful is the tv show to the books? Pissed at the stupid cliffhanger at the end of Dance with Dragons. When is he coming out with the next one? Cmon now. Is R'hollor going to reanimate JS? and what happened to the river bandits that he hasnt mentioned in books? WTF man

Very. There have been some minor changes character-wise (TV whore Ros isn't in the books, Vargo Hoat isn't in the show, etc etc), but the overall plot and story-lines haven't really changed. A lot of dialogue is copied straight from the books.

She is so much hotter as a brunette imo, but I'll take what HBO gives me.

Who else would it be? I bet Clarke is the only one that can leverage anything she wants from the producers. All the other women on the show that have been nude can be easily replaceable, Clarke is a Co-star of the show, she can demand anything she wants from the producers.

I have just recently read a storm of swords and a feast for crows.

Shae is a big departure from her book version and tv verizon. I hope they still end up in the same place.

Also jeyne westerling is different from talisa

The tyrell family is missing 2 important members

The greyjoy storyline is almost totally different.

I am hopeful they keep the important plot points the same. Even if stuff happens out of order, or for different reasons. Like Robb wanting to take casterly rock instead of moat cailin

Edit: also now stannis is like my favourite character and I kind of hate dany now. The guy doesnt want the iron throne, he feels he needs to take it out of duty to his brother robert and his daughter shireen. Also he wants to bring justice to westeros. Robb is an ass for not supporting his claim as his father would have wanted him to. After the baratheon bannerman went over to stannis robb should have pledged his support and moved his forces to delay lannister/tyrell forces from reinforcing kings landing, thus allowing stannis to take the city.
