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.

    They needed to expand a bit more on the three eyed crow, Bran and the "skinchanging" ability, even though it was only mentioned in second book. I know its a small thing, but its what makes his character.

    The real issue was the implementation and portraying of that scene, imo.

    Who?
    Danaerys's sidekick/henchman. EDIT: Jorah, not Joreth.

    Who?

    Think he means Ser Jorah. Very cool character in the show, and I'm sure they will expand on him in future novel/seasons. His father is Jeor Mormont, Jon's commander who gave him the sword, that was actually meant for Jorah.

    Even in the HBO production, it is noted he is the son of the current Lord of the Night Watch, and that he fled the King's justice due to selling some criminals marked to join the Night Watch. Also, here's a minor spoiler:

    There's really no need to develop his character much past this point. He'll be gone by the middle of S2.

    That doesn't happen until the middle of book 3. Would seem a bit early to stuff it into S2 no?

    Major spoiler so don't click unless you've read the books.

    Given this is TV, how slow the Danny plotline is in the second book, and how the Unsullied will really appeal to viewer's interest, I expect them to speed up the Danny plot line to get the Unsullied in the picture. However, I hope they do not forget to put the lesbian scene in.

    You'll notice I a) stated clearly it was a book spoiler and b) I did not raise the books first, someone else dropped a spoiler relating to the book right into the thread without tags so please go bother him.

    If you miss the fact my response to the book spoiler in open chat said it was a spoiler...well, that's all this is wrong with the world.

    Actually I think it's the lack of common courtesy and the need for people to self-righteously defend their own boorish behaviour.

    Your first spoiler wasn't tagged "book spoiler," but please keep all book spoilers out of the thread anyway. I don't want to know who lives and dies until it happens.

    +100 Well shit, man. I'm just about going to give up and abandon this threak the way I had to bail on the True Blood threak. People are dumb a-holes, and it seems book spoilers are here to stay. Real shame folks can't keep their nerd-boners in their pants for the sake of everyone else. But this is the internet, where reason and common courtesy go to die. Fucking ridiculous, but oh well.

    Probably for the best. You're a more enjoyable poster in most other threads.

    Fair enough and sorry I forgot to label the first one as such. Again, at least I put my spoilers in spoiler vs. dropping it into open chat...and that guy is catching no shit. /shrug.

    Your opinion of the messenger doesn't make the message any less true, though.
