Question for the book readers. If I had to guess, I would say TWoW will be released sometime around season 5 airing on HBO. That only gives Martin 2 years for ADoS. I just can't see him finishing the series before HBO does. They sound pretty insistent on 7 seasons. GRRM always talks about the series taking a break or doing a prequel series in between to give him time but it doesn't sound like HBO has any interest in doing either. So if it comes to pass that the 7th and final season airs before Martin has released ADoS, what will you guys do? Wait for the book and then watch season 7? Watch season 7 and then read the book when its released? I would rather read the book before hand but my curiosity might get the better of me. Will be a tough decision.

I'm sure I'd go ahead and watch the HBO series. It would be almost impossible to avoid spoilers anyway.

That's a good point. You would basically have to lock yourself in a room until ADoS came out. Definitely wouldn't be able to use the internet at all lol

That means winds od winter hits with at least a season to spare. I also think it'll be so content rich it'll take two seasons.

Martin should have 3-4 years to finish it. I think he will.
I thought I heard in an interview that HBO was going to combine affc and adwd chronologically and cut a lot of the filler material to make it one season.

The producers sound pretty damn intent on finishing in 7 seasons as well. Quite a few actors' contracts expire after season 7 anyway, and some in 6 (Dinklage I believe). Considering how famous a lot of these people are now, it would be very expensive to get them all signed on again even for just a couple of seasons.

I don't doubt it will be incredibly content rich. TWoT and ADoS are both supposed to be +1500 pages long according to Martin (nearly twice the size of the other novels). Maybe the producers will rethink the 7 seasons thing when they realize this. Or maybe they'll split up seasons 6 and 7 into two parts. Otherwise we're looking at the series diverging pretty significantly from the books in the near future.

In terms of staying as faithful as possible to the books, I agree with you. 9 seasons would probably be the minimum.

I'm not so sure HBO agrees though. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Kinda wish they woulda kept Ian Whyte on as him.



Whyte's Mountain just oozed that educated, psychotic, nobleman feel. I can totally see him picking up the Hound and shoving his face in a fire without saying a word or batting an eyelash.

I'm worried the new guy will just come across as some roid-raging meathead that Tywin picked up off the street. Hope he's more like Whyte than the first guy.
Considering that the Mountain's chief job moving forward is to fight the Viper, I understand why they went in this direction.

Yeah I suppose so. This new guy looks pretty damn young though. He's supposed to be the hound's older brother. Maybe they can work some digital magic with that.

Ian Whyte was way too skinny to be The Mountain and even he said he didn't like playing the character because he was too mean. The first guy was fantastic.

He is a little skinny. Conan Stevens did do a pretty damn good job. I hear he's a method actor and couldn't really turn "the Mountain" switch off. Guess he had some probs with the other actors. Damn shame. He had the right build/age.

no real reason he can't be the Hound's younger brother on the show.

Tywin does not miss much, if anything. Always scheming.

Tyrion's "confession" gave me chills. That was just a phenomenal scene. Just give Dinklage his Emmy and cut out the long wait and see. Easily one of the most impressive scenes I have ever seen on television.

I get the feeling you might have some personal experience to draw from.

Tyrion's trial was perfect. The writers succinctly encapsulated his progression from annoyance, to anger, to shame, to wrath. Dance is owning his role as Tywin, all the subtle clues to hint at Shae's behavior. Oberyn Martell was also brilliantly cast, knocked out of the ****ing park. Episode eight is titled "The Mountain and the Viper." Someone is going to need an orthodontist.

I am so excited for that episode and at the same time dreading it. Oberyn has been absolutely awesome on the show and I don't want that to end.
