  1. On a related note, every time someone tries to enumerate using letters, B followed by round bracket inevitably turns into a smiley with sunglasses. Even if it's lowercase B. Honestly, a) it's annoying, B) from my observation, people try (and fail) to use it in enumeration way often than as a smiley. Could it be fixed? Even if it's done by removing that one from the list of available smileys, I'd say it's a good trade.

  2. I have been wondering about this for some time now. The producers have shown that they don't mind changing the plot around a bit, and as far as I can remember Loras' plot, having them marry wouldn't be any larger of a change than the current Mel + Gendry plot (I'm sure that there are book purists that will say this is incorrect, but anyways). I honestly think it could go either way. Most book readers are assuming they won't be married because it doesn't happen in the books, but I wouldn't put it past them to go through with the wedding just to shock book readers.

    So yeah, I think it's a possibility.

    But in the books Cersei was expected to remarry, too. However at the end Tywin had trouble forcing her, with that nasty crossbow bolt in his stomach (I hope they don't skip that!). So far the only change is the name of the man Cersei won't marry.

  3. When you add nudity for no reasons, then you are more interested in it than in the story you are telling with the scene.

    And in your argument, "with the scene" somehow became equal to "with the whole show", which I'm objecting against.

    As Ran wonderfully said in his analysis of Second Sons, if we wanted to see nudity, we would watch Spartacus or something else.

    And if we didn't want to see nudity, we'd watch yet another show ("Band of Brothers", maybe?).

  4. Explain me why did we need a naked Melisandre to preform leeches ritual, and why of all places his penis was the best place to put one (although Robb`s penis led him to his doom, so that might be some kind of foreshadowing)?

    'Cause Carice van Houten looks very fine naked. Duh. But you're claiming that, let me quote,

    they don`t care about story telling as much as they care for showing nude bodies
    Which is way, way exaggerated. In a 57-minutes episode they put maybe four minutes of nudity and that's enough to say the nudity is the most important thing on the show?
  5. 2- In books, Cersei would never scold/theat Margaery so openly. The same goes to Tyrion, with his openly transgression against the king.

    But that's what Tyrion did. Several times (and yes, he did threaten to cut off Joff's dick during the wedding). Which finally bit him on the ass during his trial.

    3- What kind of lame wedding was that? If I'm not sure, in the books it was a fine wedding, even so they were struggling on getting the king`s wedding much beautiful and memorable, in order to forget Tyrion`s.

    Really? My recollection is that it was a rapidly prepared and executed ceremony, with only a handful of guests present. Joffrey's wedding was extravagant not to overshadow Tyrion's nuptial, but simply because that's how a king's wedding is supposed to be.

    So, basically, they don`t care about story telling as much as they care for showing nude bodies? Should I start how many things are wrong about it?

    Come on, that's a gross oversimplification. If they cared about T&A only, they could make that kind of a show much, much cheaper. You don't need to be that observant to notice that between all those boobs and buttocks they're actually telling a story.
