I love when people try and go against the grain just for the sake of it, the show is good and there's nothing bad about it. If it's not you're kind of show that's one thing but it's popular for a reason.

I know who Janos Slynt is...I have also read the books.

He betrayed Ned Stark

" Bastard, son of a Bastard...how can a bastard tlak like this to me"


Basically, this fking guy got sent to the wall by Tyrion ( which was fking awesome) and all of a sudden he sits and dines there with other high commanders at the Wall. Who the fk is he?


Anyway, like somebody above said, he has a really cool scene in book 5.

Amazing episode this week. The acting has been so spot on this season.

I just have one quick question for you book readers. How many more seasons until Dany gets to Westeros? Is she ever going to? I'm just wondering.

Spoilers in white

Next season she will still not end up there or even close to Westeros

Just saying.

you fantasy nerds do not get jokes very well.

My humor is too sophisticated for you

The Oberyn-Tyrion scene in the dungeon was maybe my favourite of the season so far. It was a true "Fuck yeah!" moment. Even more than Lysa flying.

The character is not at all how I pictured him reading the books but overall, they nailed the essence of the character as best as they could. It turned out to be a great casting choice. I just wish they made it more clear how great of a fighter Oberyn is going into this battle.

True.

But in the case of Game of Thrones, it is popular and incredibly high quality.

I wish they would have done that with a lot of characters. We never see Jamie fight before his 'accident' as far as I can remember. The two second scuffle with Eddard notwithstanding.

They don't show Barristan fight really, or Ser FriendZone (except for like, two seconds). Did Robb Stark ever even face an enemy on camera?

I don't know. I think they could definitely do a better job of showing some of these guys who are supposed to be the best in the land... being the best in the land.

Minor quibble.

Yeah, I think Tyrone's reaction sold it though.

It would take a lot of money and time to combat train all the actors to a standard that would do the books justice.

I'd say it's not because of them not wanting to just not feasible on the time that they have. They're already filming scenes for season 6 as we write this.
