  1. I don't care that much for the missing scenes and all that, but to me this show has a lot of weak links and is definately not one of the better HBO shows, at least not in the top5. People must know that some of us have been moderately critical of the show since s01e01. Some decisions are really not understandable, like how maester Cressen died (I think they fucked up who drinks first) and why make an abrupt ending like that. I want this show to be really good. In some instances it is. Today was more or less a good episode. But damn the pacing, the storytelling, the expositions, the unneeded nudity and some boring storylines.. edit: I can deal with the budget limitations...but not when it comes to storytelling.

    I'll ask here because I don't know where else. Is there a thread in here where people talk about parallels between Red God and The Great Other magic? Stuff like resurrections and all that... I've used search but can't find anything
  4. I'm just going to leave this here. http://shrani.si/f/2N/WW/Y02ZDsz/shit.gif

    Okay. You got easy ones like these: Talking about Victarion and Asha? These ones are easy too. And then posts like these: Who are Yogi and Fred here? No clues. Who is Dumbo? He flies? Daenerys? Aegon? No fucking clue what he is talking about. This one could be solved. Anyone have any ideas? Somehow sounds to me like Melisandre, don't know why... Quentyn Martell. Must be.

    Can you post a link to that fan translation? I do have the Witcher book, The Last Wish, but if the fan translation is better, I want to read it pronto! Thanks.

    Were Martin's cryptic messages about writing ADWD been on Not-a-blog been decyphered? We all know Kong was ADWD, but what about other 'clues'?

    How have you started reading the aSoIaF books?

    Hi, my first post here even tho I've read a few full threads already. I'm happy I've started reading this before the TV series came. The internet is full of spoilers now and goddammit I'm glad I've read it all before I watched it. I started reading ASOIAF in 2009, when the Slovenian version of the first book was released, my girlfriend recommended it and when I read the sample chapter in a local magazine (the sample chapter was the prologue), I was intrigued. I was hooked quickly by the fast paced story and great characters, I even remember reading 100 pages of it at 4.a.m., under the street ligh, sitting outside on the pavement, waiting for the bus to come. I had to wait almost 2 years for ADWD, and even that was almost too much for me. Now it's been almost 3 years since I've read the fifth book and I've read all of the books three times...and will re-read it at least once before TWOW comes. I wouldn't read the books if I watched the TV series first. I don't like it.
