    Don't disagree with the general sentiment but adhering more to the real story isn't teally an option since fatboy can't get around to finishing the original story.

    As long as GoT = Game of Tits I think we can write off the idea this is about "safe spaces."

    Since one if our regular posters has been quiet lately I'll note that the transition from rape porn to images that could be seen in the supermarket line on the cover of Cosmo has been pretty noticeable.

    Saw this map recently. Not that it's new, but it's an attempt to give the Game of Thrones world a sense of scale. I really prefer it to the author's interpretation (where the continents are much, even absurdly larger). I've heard it said that Martin imagines Westeros as big as South America. I always assumed the characters just had no idea how far apart the things in their world really are and were exaggerating.

    It's been years since I read the books, but I don't recall anything about the Three Musketeers of Ethos, Southeryos, and Ulthos or whatever. They sound like parody names.

    A fair point, but I assume what most people mean by "adhering to the story" is the moral ambiguity/trope subversion of GRRM's writing.

    Instead we get cliche one-liners and grrrrl power moments.

    I don't even care about the one liners at this point, they just need to wrap that shit up.

    I was thinking - what if the Others (White Walkers) are Hive minded, like the other GRRM baddies

    my guess is that Night King alone controls the wights, so kill him and you're good

    But the tits on that one were nice. Not worth the spectacularly shitty Dorne storyline, tho.

    HBO is replaying GoT one season per day. They're doing season 4 today. It's been awhile since I've seen these episodes but to me season 4 is by far the best season.
