Jcb890 You'll need to stop watching or discussing anything show related then because the show is pretty much entirely passed where the books have stopped. It is nobody's fault other than GRRM which is a bummer because I'm also really looking forward to the book release.

This is a clear violation of the no book spoiler clause.

Constable Chomps will be around to lash you to death with smilies.

TBH, IMO, the show is a better show than the books are books. I could easily list 30-50 better books/series in the genre.

Both are turd polished pulp, to be real. I do like the show but it isn't particularly clever. Its mostly dragons and giants and blood and sex. They make it look pretty good.

There is almost a complete lack of ethos, culture, dogma, the white walker conundrum seems a half conceived idea at this point. The only unifiying meta to grasp is the sayings and symbols of the houses and the families' histories. All of the magic and motivation and rules of lore seem haphazard and jumbled at best.

The lack of subtlety on any level is frustrating but its still a fun romp. What ever will happen with Jon Snow?!
let's be real here, the show is a turd polished pulp. The books are vomit triple distilled. I still prefer the books even with the fuckup of splitting A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons into that jumbled fucking mess. you have to admit, martin's penchant for killing of his main players isn't something you come across frequently and it does make you wonder who will finally win the game of thrones (daenerys).

I'm not a big fantasy/scifi guy, more into fiction.

Argo I don't read anything unless it is an online gossip forum like this, text books or subtitles while there aren't nekkid chicks on foreign shows.

You just have to take the show for what it is. The books are better (of course), but the show is also great.
