"Youre going to fight that?"

"Im going to kill that"


" but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was “Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!”

:bbb The Stannis bit just proves he is the GOAT. What a boss.

(did I just see The Red Viper using a sword? Hope not)

I didn't even notice that until you brought it up. They better not take away his spear.

I'm actually looking forward to his appearance more than anything else, despite how many major events are still to come, and just from book 3.

Not really, I'm at work so just pop in every so often but can't be on for any real time.
no worries, I'm not in a rush, I was just wanting to ask you about something I saw you post a while back. I remember you posted some great looking vids about the background of the different houses in game of thrones and stuff. If you have the chance at some point could you link me to them again please mate? I tried looking but there's all kinds of vids that come up so I haven't got a clue if I'm in the right place or not.

This is the background to the religions, world etc...and the second video is the history of the houses etc.

There is a third video on the history but it begins with where Season 1 starts, and it warns there are spoilers so I haven't watched it.

Just can't get into the shows dude. It's like watching a lesser version of the books. The books are too good my dude. It's an excellent show, it really is. It isn't the books though, and I'll reread the books every time over catching the show.

Yeah i can watch both but the books are definitely superior i mean how can they not be. I just get pissed at people who havent read the books. I mean come on you can finish em in a few weeks. Eaaasy reads

There are some things the shows did better. Robb Stark is given more to say and do. Lena Headley(sp) has made Cercei tolerable, and the battles are better, if Martin has a flaw he cant write a battle for shit.

But yeah book Stannis the Mannis easily superior to show Stannis. Probably the most glaring flaw is how Stannis is written on the show, which the actor is good but the show doesnt quite catch his badassery or his dry humor.


Davos: "Give me knights as heralds...-

Stannis: "I could give you those men, yes, I have at least a hundred knights who prefer reading to fighting."



Also ghe horror elements (Martin being an acclaimed horror writer) are missing.

The cryptic prophecies as well

For instance the House of the Undying and Dani seeing a dead King with a wolfs head sat on a throne presiding over a feast of dead men an awesome forbearance to the red wedding that was missing from the show as were other prophetic dreams and speeches

It's not that I don't enjoy the show. It's that when I watch it, I feel like I'm watching a lesser version of what I've already read. Feels like a waste. Brilliant show though. And it seems like it'll finish before the damned books so......
