They thought people would confuse Asha and Osha the wildling

Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) is in a movie coming out this year - Knights of Baddasdom...

Looks like a cult classic in the making...

Chris, I support your right to choose to watch Sparticus for the ridiculously toned abs and grunt fighters who are sweat machines.

Well that's just sexist. I watch for the cinematography, art direction and costume choice...

And the sweaty-absiness.

Cult, schmult. I'm going to get a front row seat at the first showing in town. This looks almost as good as Dorkness Rising.

Hey, It has been a long time since I read the books, I was hoping someone who has gone through them more recently can jog my memory.

I was surprised by Theon Greyjoy returning home to his father this early in the series. From my memories of reading the books, this event did not happen until much later. Am I misremembering the order, or did they move these events up in the story timeline?

The timeline is about right. He leaves Robb early in Clash of Kings, meets his father and his family and by the end of the book--treachery!!!

Honestly, I actually like the 10 episode format. It forces each episode to be more significant and seriously reduces the amount of filler that you get in a season.

Yes, there may be some smaller scenes that we lose. But overall, I prefer they keep it as tight as possible. Really looking forward to the end of this season. I heard they increased the budget by 15% for the big battle.

(That was my only issue with the first season. Due to budget reasons all the battles had to happen off screen)

Doubtful. Book 5 was longer than any of the previous volumes. Plus, Martin probably still needs another 3 years at least before he can finish book 6. So, if HBO intends to continue the series that long, they will need the lead time.

Eh, more happened than in book 4. Don't want to go too much into the spoilers, but a lot of stuff went down with a lot of characters in book 5.

Id have to agree with this.

I did not like 4 very much. Nothing happened at all. Without spoiling too much, a person in power, made moves with personnel- thats one episode which took the entire book to do.

Another person came into power (which we all expected)- that is one episode which took an entire book to do.

Another person- went on an exploration and learned and lived as another-this will take two episodes.

Another person was sent on an exploration with a few colleagues,-this will take 1 episode

Another person- was on a self imposed quest- 3 episodes if lucky

And lastly another person and family members squabbled over who is ruling/ruler etc etc.


Thats like 8 episodes if you draw it out....which I am not sure can be done.





I am only about 475 pages into book 5. But there is way more I think in 5.


we have already:
our little adventure with the Whargs
the wall and wildlings
Reek- who rhymes with bleak
The onion
the battle of asha
The ship sailing through the swamp lands and fog and the people aboard it
Denaryous

That right there is like 7 episodes and I am not even half way into the book.

PS- I like this book sooooooo much more than 4.

Season 2, Episode 4 should be a humdinger.

** MILD SPOILERS ***

Season/Book two starts out a bit slow, but holy hell does it get roaring! They are accelerating a lot of the story lines which is helping a lot.

Those of you who love action/battles are in for an awesome spectacle if they can pull it off in the budget. It'll never match the awesome picture that's in my head, but hopefully they can at least do it justice.

The book ain't called "A Clash of Kings" for the hell of it.

The story at the wall lights up as well, upping the ante on the peril from the north.

Dany's story is very slow in this book/season, but also has a spectacular ending. Though I do wonder who they cast as Strong Belwas? I always pictured a guy with the body and fashion sense of a sumo wrestler.

I've finally caught up in the book with the series. Definitely like the books better. I don't understand why they've taken the departures from the book that they've taken in some of the instances. It's distracting. Also, there must be a TON of stuff that happens in between chapter 50 and 70, because they've pretty much spent 3 episodes to cover chapters 1-50, and still have 7 more episodes to go.
