    When is Jamie going to take his arm out of that little sling? The stump is all healed and we do not need to be reminded in every shot he had his hand cut off.

    50 hours is kind of like my pace reading the first time through. It took me about 3-4 weeks per book reading 2 hours per day.

    Dude, I've spent my whole life operating on the theory that being respectful and kind to women can be an adequate substitute for physical attractiveness. Don't go harshing my mellow now . . .

    At this point wouldn't it be easier just to read the books?

    The wikis are still useful if you've read the books, unless you've read them all a dozen times like most of the wiki editors have. Even the conversations on this thread, which are, I would imagine, significantly less obscure than the conversations that the real experts have, often require me to consult the wiki to remind myself who some of these characters are. I'm re reading the series right now and noticing a lot that I missed the first time. For starters, I remember the Blackfish being a much more minor character than he was. He doesn't actually appear that many times, but people spend a lot of time talking about him.

    One thing that the books have and is missing from the show, I think, is the idea of how big and how old this world is. Every name has a story and a character trait and every family has a history that goes back hundreds, if not thousands of years.

    More like half. But, yes, everyone who hasn't, should read AGoT, ACoK, and ASoS before next season begins.

    There's a package of all of the trade paperbacks together for those 3 plus AFfC. ADwD is supposed to come out before Christmas in paperback. Who the hell knows.
