    Details on Prequel Pilot Revealed

    Well, the beauty of this is actually the fact it will be story that might not be told in any other medium. Again, I am now primarily interested who the main characters will be.

    Details on Prequel Pilot Revealed

    This is... Interesting. Honestly, previously The Long Night sounded like generic High Fantasy backstory. Then again, we might be surprised by that what actually happen and just like in ASOIAF this might ultimately be the strong characters-based story.

    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    OK, I agree that I was maybe splitting the hair a little. I still kinda think that Book!Robb might have kinda had a more hope that his deed will be understood than that of his show counterpart and that this horndog characterization could be called idiotic in general.

    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    Marrying Jeyne was stupid, but it was honor-based decision without traditional romance. Marrying Talisa existed becouse stupid adaptational romance and made Robb consciously s*** on the vows with huge disrespect.

    Well, I agree about what have you written about the show, no problem there. That signature is a joke based on quote from Macbeth.

    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    OK, I personaly think that while books have problem here and there, there aren´t significant "plot holes" as such. In the show´s original writing I think there is seldom to find anything that is well written or makes sense anymore. That would be only "expectations" I would like te be met.

    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    So? This isn´t about the fact something is different. It is about how it is written as a result.

    Well, the show clearly loves it´s clichés and flanderizations.

    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    No matter how much I dislike the show, I still feel that Show!Margeary at least added interesting presence at the court. Her manipulation of Joffrey (if basic) showed to certain extent Tyrell ambition and skill in playing the game. If nothing else it helped the atmosphere. Although I am still not sure if it was more difference in quality or simply in medium.

    Was the second shadowbaby necessary?

    Technically yes, even though "Davos must accompany Melisandre to send Shadowbaby to Renly´s camp" was kinda weird from logistics standpoint.

    I guess they wanted exotic foreigner with worldviews that might be closer to modern audience. BTW, other heavily modified storyline in Season 2 - Dany in Qarth - was also kinda sore to watch and think about. And yes, I know source material wasn´t very adaptable in this case. It is just funny to me that this was the best they came up with.

    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    No, it made pointless shift in themes, it made Robb incredibly stupider, it was terribly predicatble dumb adaptation move (forcing romance where it doesn´t belong) and it was horibly written anyway.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    Considering this tome, he is definitely not uninterested in ASOIAF as concept. It´s the plot itself he struggles with.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    Well, definitely thank you for the video. But while I will buy the book, I understand people´s concerns. I am not really that impatient (although my father is and whenever I´ll mention Martin next to him he becomes aggressive). Considering Martin openly talks about writer´s blocks and it seems that his gift is now producing historical narration instead of standard novel narration, I think it suggests dangerous shift in creativity. Question for me isn´t "Will he ever finish?". It is instead "Is his mind even set that he can construct regular story anymore?".

    Nobody complains that it isn´t 100% faithful. Some people see it is inherently bad. That´s what makes "100% remark" strawman. The seeds were obvious from the first two seasons. Again as a person who doesn´t really care if the books are completed or not... Well I can I can get frustration of some people for sure, but it couldn´t matter to me less that we get story´s ending this way.
