1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    How about just keep spreading them further and further apart until they hang out of her armpits?

    I'm wondering if they will include Strong Belwas as a character.

    Varys and Littlefinger are both great actors, but they really stuff way too much Littlefinger into the show. Varys and Littlefinger are good characters b/c of the mystery that surrounds them, not because they're on every page.

    Jaime and Brienne should be in a lot of scenes this year.

    If it's anything like the battle at the end of Season 2 with 30 or so actors, I'll pass. They completely screwed that one up.

    Yeah, they have been showing Littlefinger a little too much lately although I don't get quite the same feeling with Varys (and I just finished re-watching S1 & S2). One of my favourite scenes in the entire series is Varys and Ned in the dungeon pretty much just talking. He literally is my favourite character.

    I've never seen the point of showing massive battlescenes and destruction when the vast majority of it would be CG. I much prefer their less is more approach.

    I'm happy with the less is more approach, but when something is meant to be a huge battle with thousands of people on either side, it's a bit shit to cut it down to a few dozen people. Either cut those scenes out or do them properly, don't half arse them.

    I thought there was a separate book thread?

    It has proven too complicated (besides, this discussion isn't about the future books, its about how the show relates to the books).

    I am pretty sure the operating assumption in here is that anything that has aired is fine to put in your post; anything that hasn't aired gets a spoiler.
    If you haven't watched the episode yet, don't click the thread; if you haven't read the books yet, don't click the spoilers.

    If you're like stitches and don't care, then read it all.

    Agree about Littlefinger. It's kind of an adaptation problem. The way the book is written, you see that everyone underestimates Littlefinger. You get that he's shifty and intelligent, but you really don't even get an inkling of what his game is until after Joffrey's murder, and when you do it has a lot more impact than it would if he had been skulking through every scene making his "hatching a plot" face.

    Similar with Selmy. Selmy isn't important enough to the show for it to have the impact that it should.

    It was a good episode, though. I hope we get some Arya and the Brotherhood in the next episode. Maybe even some Thoros and Beric

    Ser Barristan

    I expect Ser Barristan to serve as the omnipotent narrator of past plot to Danaerys. There's so much untold about Robert's Rebellion in the show- Lyanna and Rhaegar, the tourney at Harenahll (which should also be told from Jojen's perspective to Bran), Mad King Aerys killing the Lord and Brandon Stark, Ned not wanting Dany killed, etc. that only Barristan can tell her and the viewer. I really hope they build that all into the show, because otherwise there's a lot missing. I would like his story told about how he saved the Mad King in the War of the Ninepenny Kings as well just as proof that he's loyal to the throne and the Targaryaen throne as needed, but it's less integral.

    I had wished the Old Bear had wistfully hoped for Ser Barristan to arrive at the wall; Stannis to have wished Ser Barristan would join him; and perhaps even Catelyn to wish to Robb that Barristan would join him. It would make his character that much more desirable for Dany and the viewers. I have to admit I wondered about him the entire book through ACOK and totally was fooled by the Arstan Whitebeard at the same time. I felt like Butterbumps when it was all revealed.

    Tonight's episode was plodding.

    They're providing Robb's wife with far too much screentime. The chat b/w Sansa and Lady Olanna could have been handled in about 2 minutes.

    I'm glad Thoros has finally appeared, along with the Hound's reappearance. :slayer:
