  1. Of course it is going to make one sick if he/she wanted simply more of Martin´s prose...

    First casting calls for Long Night released

    Starks have a black ancestry! "They killed my ni**a Ned!" was closer to truth than we knew!
  3. Sorry, but assuming that pretty crucial information was given offscreen is assuming s***** storytelling.
  4. Previously linked on Reddit... Server Fandomentals that is famous for it´s critical articles about (among other things) Game of Thrones has recently completed it´s retrospective on Season 1. Becouse of obvious circumstances it can´t be largely negative, but there are still some notes about the original writing. https://www.thefandomentals.com/tag/got-season-1/
  5. Of course, just from the writing perspective, one can ask if Tyrion wouldn´t simply say "heir to Dorne" or something like that.
  6. Don´t forget these are plot holes created in adaptation proces, not those in show-only material.

    HBO’s New Direction and Prequel News

    You seem to post a lot about disinterest in something.

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

    Well, he hasn´t completed the fourth Dunk and Egg story either.

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

    OK, but if the books will ever be published, I doubt this character will be randomly offed just to make place for some other character.

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

    As far as the first part goes... Did she even know what Jaime and Tywin claimed about her?
  11. Kidnapping Jaime and Brienne is actually much more interesting, that´s for sure.

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

    We were talking about the books.

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

    I would say he had, it was pretty climactic given the context.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.
