Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans
I haven't read the books but from the previously shown reactions of Robert, Ned, Renly and Catelyn I was expecting him to be ruthless and to have a more commanding presence. From the trailers there does seem to be a good amount of time where Stannis and Renly are together though. The producers might be trying to introduce characters in stages rather than all at once - they did that last season with the Starks.
The sex is over the top as always.
I am liking this season as much as the last so far though.
