Also, book three will get two season, and rightly so.
So it ends with the Red Wedding? I wonder if they'll be able to keep that as much a secret for the non-book readers as the Stark beheading in S1?
I think that's how they might cap off the third season.
Probably in the 9th episode, as they've done in the first two seasons.
I'm really looking forward to them having more time to flesh out the stories of the third book, there's so much they haven't touched upon yet.
and certain plot elements can be moved into season 3 and 4. If they still want to do the prophecies, there is no reason why Dany can't learn about them elsewhere.
Quaithe seems logical, or her drinking that purple stuff somewhere else.
I'm not keen on reading ahead with the GOT books, but would reading book 2 be of benefit without adding too many spoilers for season 3 of the series?
Why watch something before reading the book? No matter how good the production is I'd rather have my interpretation of a world then someone else's.
Hopscotching the books and TV would be confusing and frustrating as hell. Read the books straight through. You need a continuous read if you have a hope in hell of keeping up with the characters and plot lines.
^ Good question Lefty. My answer is that film is my preferred medium, I'm very visual as opposed to a reader of fiction. I prefer non fiction for reading in general.
My idea with reading the book afterwards is to flesh out the characters further. I wouldn't want to read the books straight through as that would spoil the anticipation of the next 6 or 7 years of series
IMO was a great episode. I didn't have a problem with HotU, but I didn't have a problem with how they shot Blackwater either. The only thing I'd have changed was to bring Ramsay in sooner, I'm chomping at the bit to see who plays that character.
Season 2 covered practically everything from Book 2. Shouldn't spoil much at all from Season 3, especially since they're going off the reservation with a number of the plot lines.
I get a lot of the plot changes, but I'm really not understanding two in particular:
Where they're going with Jon's plot, and how it could possibly be better.
The stupid, stupid changes to Robb getting married. GAHHH. Talking it over and pondering it, then doing it anyway while simultaneously saying he doesn't care about how Ned would have done things completely changes his character. He just looks like a douche instead of someone trying to be a good king and an honorable man.
^ Well it's not like it'll come back to hurt him or anything.
Game of Thrones: Where there are No Consequences for Bad Decisions (TM).
I bought the box set since S1 and still have not read anything.
I love this show though, best thing I've seen or ever will?
The Walking Dead was good too and can't wait for S3...
