Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans
It's not just one thing, but if I did have to chose, I'd say that I found it really stupid that the audience never got to actually know Stannis even for a bit. First of all, his actor is terrible (which is weird since 80% of the cast was really good). Second of all, he has no screen time. Then just out of the blue he fucks Melisandre. What the fuck was that.
So we get screen time of a whore (who is non-existent in the books I must mention) crying, but no Stannis or Renly or anything else much more vital.
I am sure most people who just watch the show don't even know who Stannis or Renly are. They would just be like - who? And Theon did fuck that girl on the boat (came in her throat, too), but out of all the scenes on the Pyke with Asha (Y something in the series...what?) they had to show sex? I know publicity...but seriously what the fuck?
ACt and anybody else who read the book can tell you how many actually important stuff could have been added.
