Having Joffrey be responsible for the bastards being killed didn't make sense to her - "what does he care?"

Or, better yet - Mr. Bean.

He actually made some very astute observations - particularly about the bastard killing. He asked whether a 'civil war' was going to start because the stupid Lannister's had killed their own people.
Most importantly he really appreciated the new scene with Littlefinger and Ros. He commented that he didn't think that Littlefinger was that "nasty". So I guess, for me, that the brothel scene had the desired intention!

He also forgets who Theon is every time he sees him.

It helps when I have to explain something to him, although I feel remarkably silly saying things like, "Charlton Heston's in the desert with Shakira because Triple H exiled him for selling poachers to a slaver."
Oh, and he really likes Tyrion.
Oh...my.....that's just too.....perfect!

Sunday's episode must have been harder for him because I kept yelling "that is not the way it happened in the book!"
I have a couple of friends that are watching too. One started reading to understand whats up and the other just calls me with questions

I just think it shows the difficulty of adaptation and the differences in the medium. For me, it makes D&D's so-called "controversial" decisions a lot more understandable. If anything, they need to trim the story even more, especially post-aSoS.

For this one, he didnt like so much. The break of pace on the constant POV switching proved too much for him, he was throughly lost by mid-episode.

The french translation (we're french) is so lame and aggravating I managed to talk her into reading the books in english. That's the first book she tries in english, she's now on page 71 of Game of Thrones and very proud and excited. She does ask for a translation of a few words per page !

There is a well known phenomenon that can be described by two people in an audience reviewing an event:
- Person A (who enjoyed the event) states that everyone was enthusiastic
- Person B (who did not enjoy the event) states that the event felt flat, with little enthusiasm from everyone
Who is right? Both? Neither? It's all based on confirmation bias.
