Oh, any way HBO can work in T&A and sex they do it. Did you catch Tyrion's reference to Varys about Shae's fish pie? At least that was a double meaning and not as in your face as the brothel scene. I don't even think my husband caught that one. The brothel scene I did a double take and said to myself, was that??? Did they??? My husband didn't miss that one. I do like watching it, despite any changes and since I know GRRM is involved, it kind of gives me clues on who is really important and who isn't for the upcoming books. I've re-read the books 4 times. My husband hasn't read them at all and he keeps asking me questions throughout the episodes - this last one I couldn't explain much because so much of it was different than the books.
