I watched “Blackwater” from season two of GAME OF THRONES, and although the episode was very good, I still don’t approve of all the shit they changed. Especially on the heels of season one which was word for word the first book, literally in some parts word for word.
Then comes season two…
Dany’s dragons get kidnapped??
King of Qarth???
No Meera, Jojen OR Ramsey Snow??
Jon Snow knows everything??
The Hound is suddenly a nice guy???
Seriously HBO, you better step it up for season 3…nudity and Peter Dinklage will only get you so far. Especially with me…I’m not 17 anymore, tits no longer give you an instant pass. They are lovely yes, but I’m far more interested in character exposition thank you. So give the whores some clothes and let me hear Tyrion and Varys talk some more.
I’m unfortunately at the point where all the best is behind me. I’ve finished season one and season two is the only option for visual Fire and Ice stimulations…and my next book to read is FEAST OF CROWS which I hear is pretty much: “No one you want to hear about and Cersei Lannister.”
This feels like DEXTER all over again…
The last book was mediocre at best, sloppy, inefficient in it’s story telling, with an ending that is suspiciously close to that of a particular James Bond novel, and I haven’t given the show my attention since they killed Rita…and from what I hear, I’m not missing much either.
At least CASTLE is proving to be consistently enjoyable in both book and TV format.
