I thought a few thing that they changed were interesting. First thing is it seems "the Others" will be refered to as "the White Walkers". I like the move for television because viewers may not pick up on just who "the Others" are. Easy enough. They changed the way the epiloge resolves although it doesn't matter very much. Royce still dies but without putting up a fight. The wrong ranger survived the encounter with "the Others" as it was the older more grizzeled man who was beheaded by Eddard in the snow. I noticed that some of the things I would have expected to happen when "the White Walkers" appeared didn't happen. It didn't get noticely colder. There seemed to be only one. And they actually let the young ranger live which I think is out of charecter for them. They hate the living and doubt very much that they would have let him go to serve as a warning to the Wall or the Seven Kingdoms. But as I said it changes nothing really. I wonder why they left out the coldness that travels with them or that they only appear in the night but I still found it to be very well done. I didn't mind the pace of the show really. Alot of things have to happen in each episode and I expect things to move right along. It actually makes me think that because of the way things are moving I think Its entirely possible that Ned may only be in ... 3... mabey 4 episodes before his card gets punched. So much has still got to happen!
