Well, that's one boring storyline out of the way.

Now we need to get rid of Brienne and Pod wandering around aimlessly and skip through all the Dany moping on the throne crap (both of which we had far too much of in Season 4), and Season 5 could be pretty fun.

Yeah I saw that last week. Makes sense as they had caught up his storyline and the next books already have a lot of characters if they try to film them chronologically (instead of doing the split storylines like GRRM did).

My assumption is that they will also use it as an opportunity to recast bran when they do bring that story back... Find a kid who didn't have a huge growth spurt since everyone will have forgotten about bran anyways.

I knew about DJ Hodor, but drag Hodor is new to me.

Maybe you should be watching the Twilight movies instead?

I suffered through it in print, I don't feel like I have to suffer through it on screen.

 

Brienne has one scene of value left before they run out of book with her.  Daenerys could easily have her storyline compressed into 10-15 minutes over the course of 3-4 episodes.  I want to move on to the new characters, of which there are many.  I'm also excited to see where some of the other storylines are going; for instance, the chaos that will result from Prince Doran's and Tyrion's final scenes.  The extensive introspection and moping can easily be edited down, like they did with Stannis this season.

I'm not excited about the show approaching the depiction of book 5. That book is easily the worst and most boring of the series

Just found this thread... before I jump in, what's the rule on spoilers (ASOIAF vs. game of thrones)?

Spoiler any plot or character info that hasn't yet appeared on screen. You can talk freely about stuff that's appeared on screen or that differs from the portrayal on screen, unless it is a prediction about future events and how they may fill in the gaps based upon how they've fucked up what's on screen compared to the books.

That's at least the rule I've used.

Okay. There are a few things that I'm interested to see play out on screen.

One that comes to mind is Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Arya and the House of Black & White and her journey to becoming a faceless man. I imagine she'll be on her way to Braavos for very little time on screen, and we'll see the Temple and all such things that come from it. Should be one of the more interesting things going on.

Another is Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
King's Landing. The feud between Margaery and Cersei will be interesting to see play out, now that we know the "walk" is going to happen. Should be interesting to see how the show watchers react to her getting removed from any power so abruptly, as well as seeing where her storyline goes from there. The Robert Strong situation will also be interesting, mainly because, like Cersei's storyline, we don't know much about what's going to happen outside of what we know from the books. Since we'll potentially be past A Dance with Dragons this next season, it'll be interesting to see where the show goes with these two story lines.

I just wanna see more T&A and more blood and gore from murders of my favorite characters.

Without question.  That's actually why I'm kind of excited about this season.  Most of Feast for Crows is easily compressed for TV, and since it runs concurrently with 3/4 of Dance with Dragons, I think this is going to be where the producers are forced to move away from the text and we'll really start to see divergence from the books.  The idea of being surprised by what happens (and not just because the show did some WTF change in the storyline) makes me happy.

Just got to the part in book 5 where Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Tyrion is captured and GRMM just casually decides to refer to his captor as Mormont in the middle of the chapter. Sometimes I hate how he does that shit. Anxious to see where this plotline goes.[/spoiler[

Yeah, I know the feeling...You end up flipping pages backwards thinking "wtf, did I skip a paragraph somewhere?"

I think he referred to him as a bear earlier in the chapter, but I could be wrong.
