Okay so I just caught up on the past 2 seasons. I really like the show. I love the whole game of it all and the political intrigue and all of the out witting each other/strategy to take control but I dunno about some things but I guess it's my fault. The acting is really good and truly brings little things to life you could easily gloss over about these characters and their personality. Plus the scope is big so it really pulls you in to the story

The show follows the book beat for beat which is great but for those who have read the books (yes book spoilers ahead): Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Is this not depressing as ****???! What kind of story is Martin telling? I'm holding out hope for what's left of the House of Stark but damn at this pace it seems it'll take years for when the young children Arrya and Bran grow up to get actual revenge the way the rest of them have dropped like flies and been betrayed. I mean damn what the ****. This is depressing. I want to see some revenge and these Lannister's are still alive. Only lovable one is Tyrion. The rest can all die. I get it and it's done well but I'm not buying a redemption arc for Jaimie and I don't care how Cersi tries to rationalize her actions. I can give the incest a pass but when this dudes throws a 10 year old out a window and make him a cripple you are hated and it won't change. Plus Tyrion gets blamed for it and that's never made clear to the Stark family cuz of his blood. How the **** is this guy Jaimie still alive? Especially when we see what happens to Robb and his moms

Don't get me started on this lame *** sick **** Geoffrey/Joffrey. Son out here passing up yambs, abusing the yambs. Just being such a cruel and twisted ****. Like c'mon and then he doesn't even get butchered when he dies. Can that old *** grandmesiter at least die?

But yeah I thought Martin was framing this story to make someone from the house of Stark the hero in the end, not so much happy ending but at least some justice. The way he's written this and the way it comes on in the series so far you'd almost think this was a retelling of actual history the way he brings in these vast amount of characters and adds so many back stories and involves them in such high quality adventures/journeys in the overall bigger plot. It's crazy. There's a lot put in to these horrible ppl I want to see die or who are still awful ppl but cool.

Reminds me a lot of Berserk in that way smokin.gif


Only other complaints are that I love how they cover various stories/locations in each ep but is it me or are there TOO many characters? The amount of characters at times can be burdensome. It literally took me 2 seasons to get all these names right and even though they kill characters at a good pace they're already adding new ones. The side characters are really colorful so that makes it harder. The last would be the magical/fantasy slant on this. I started watching this show with no knowledge on it and only going off of a commercial and vid clip of all the sex scenes I was able to set the story in some sort of medieval Camelot like era and the whole time I'm thinking these monster stories, talks of GODs, and dragons was just bs. I'm thinking the white walkers are just some badass warriors that are hard to kill mean ************* only to see that change to the actual undead. Now I don't mind it much but the way they end each season finale so far with a magical touch is underwhelming. First we get dragons then the army of white walkers approaching the wall. That's not enough for me, Ned Stark's beheading was more impactufl imo and that was in the ep right before the finale. I would've took Khalessi coming out the fire without a scratch but 3 mini cgi dragons didn't make me go eek.gif Same goes for that broad birthing that black murder ghost. I can go for stuff like that witch bringing back Drogo but basically with no consciousness, the Jaqen dude, illusion dude tha was part of the 13 of Qarth, and stuff like Bran's dreams

I'm talking Varys, Tyrion, Theon, Robb, Jon Snow, Stannis and his Red priestess, Tywin, the Tyrells, little finger (currently forgot his real name), Danerys, the rest of the Greyjoys, house of Arryn, this face changing Jaquen dude, Cersi, Sansa, etc. Then there's all these ******g lands. Not to mention the fat kid rolling with Arya and Robert's son, all the other dudes in the Night's watch, cool guy rolling with Tyrion. It's like every interesting character I like has a really interesting right hand man with them.

I've already forgot the family that was running the bridge when Robb needed to cross.

Overall great series though and I will keep up. Not sure I can wait week to week for it though. I may just wait again and do another dope 10 hr marathon.

You should check out the tv show's wiki or go on westeros.org to help you keep up with all of the characters. I use those sites like a textbook if I have to look something up or want to read up on some of the history.

George Martin really is a fat ******g pedophile if you think about it laugh.gif I really have no idea how hes gonna wrap the whole story up cleanly in the last two books. He spent the book 4 and 5 writing in circles getting nothing accomplished. I have dreams of Jon Snow being revealed as the true born son of Rhaegar and becoming king but i dont think thats gonna happen anymore

The night's watch would have to be slaughtered or he somehow unites the wildings with them as well some other force, take the North and continue to conquer all of the South. I know I was thinking for a while what if the plan was to somehow link Danerys with some guy cuz she can't do it alone but I kinda doubt it now. Probably not Jon.

all right fellas there is a book thread also. I hate to be that guy screaming no book spoilers. but there will be people doing that. and curiosity always has people clicking spoiler tags.
so with all due respect anything regarding the book should be moved to that thread.

You get used to it. GRRM throws a ton of people at you, a lot of small time characters as well that pop in and out of the story. Some aren't even seen again for a book or two. I like it, he's made the world so expansive. There's so many story lines going on that people have no idea how he'll ultimately end this epic story. The only downside to it is he takes forever to write a book. He has to edit it so many times to make sure everything lines up.

Link? nerd.gif

Didn't know there was a book thread. I searched A Song of Ice & Fire and don't see anything.
post #44 of 8531
Yea it's a deep search, I think there was only a page or two of responses. If I find it, I'll post it up.

But people will still complain I suppose, saying they're too curious and that they had to read the posts in the book thread laugh.gif

lets get the book thread popping
post #54 of 8531
IDK if we should put this in the book thread or this tv thread. but i had a friend skip book 2 because she saw season 2.
I was trying to tell her why that's a bad move;. but she doesn't care. I need a list of things that were different in book 2 to season 2. (if it spoils this thread I'll ask this same question in the book thread.)
post #55 of 8531
Just off the top of my head...

- the whole arya storyline
- how the winterfell situation went down
- quarth, house of undying etc
- robbs battles were also different

Everything else was loosely on point
post #56 of 8531
just read the GOT wiki that had a long list
it didnt occur to me that one of danys khal had the head sent back

but they also explained how dany in the book wouldnt do some of the things she did. how book dany is more compassionate

Thread Starter 

Man I'm glad I've read all the books already, because I can already foresee someone spoiling major plot points for season 3. laugh.gif mean.gif

 

The season premiere is about 3 weeks away and I already noticed a few posts that were edited for this same reason.

 

That's why I suggested people refrain from posting book spoilers all together. Posting book spoilers encourages discussion of said spoilers and even if they are in spoilers there are always one or two people who discuss them openly in the thread.

post #60 of 8531

Soooo hyped for season 3. I never really thought I would get so into it after reading the synopsis of the show, but I'm glad gave it a chance. I had to keep reading wikis after each episode or two to fully grasp the storyline because it's so complex. Rewatching the series really helped me put everything together plot wise.

 

Anyways, does anyone also think this about Jon Snow? (spoilers)

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'm almost sure Jon Snow is a Targaryen, being the son of Rhaegar (Daenerys & Viserys' oldest brother) and Lyanna (Ned's deceased sister). There are a couple of hints that Ned gives in the first couple episodes that made me realize it. That would be so crazy if he actually was a Targaryen, it would put a lot more twists to the story.
