Wasn't Ghost injured by a wildling warged into an eagle just before Jon was captured in the books? Wasn't that how they were found out?

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Jon was injured by Varamyr, not Ghost.

The episode was okay bar a few horrendous scenes, for example Daenerys and the Others. Not to mention that I got pretty pissed that they show me a random whore again and spend 10 mins on her, but skip half the most important scenes. Really, really moronic.

It was Orell that had warged into the eagle and directly attacked Jon after he and Halfhand were captured. Ghost was attacked before that and wasn't present when Jon and Halfhand were taken.

They were obviously trying to squeeze in some temporary closure to the various threads ongoing, but I think that for what they had left they did fairly well. Of course, if they had planned it better to begin with they wouldn't have had to, but it could also just be a TV ploy to keep people watching until the end.

Yeah, there was a lot to tie up, but at the end of the season, focus on the important - House of the undying, Jon and Halfhand, aftermath of Bywater (and I would say ONLY the Kingslanding side), Theon and Winterfell. The few quick scenes of Jamie and Brienne and Arya + co were pretty well done so they make great interludes, but Varys and the whore? why? Stannis moaning about defeat and then told to look into the fire... why? (There's a great scene at the start of Book 3 with Stannis, Melisandre, leeches and fire that I felt would be a better way to reintroduce him after his defeat)

It led them to rush pretty much all the scenes where a minute or two extra of suspense would have served the important issues far better. Not to mention the overplaying of Littlefinger's motives, (again) the making the Other's far too obvious (this is the BIG BAD here and they are tossing it out as a known when Martin had it very unknown), a little confusing to Jon's motives in the fight with Halfhand - felt it could have been better handled -, completely skipping the attack on Winterfell by Ramsey Snow... just don't understand the reasons here when there is so much better to mine out of the books.

The zombies at the end seem like a cheap move to cash in on the "OMG Zombie" popularity that is currently big, partially due ot the Walking Dead. If you aren't liking this show and now all of a sudden are "OMG ZOMBIES BEST SHOW EVER" ... I just don't know. Feel they blew a lot of money on that which could have been better used to put Ghost in the show since the bond between Jon and Ghost was the strongest aside from Bran and Summer.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

I plan on reading the books, one day. I'm most likely going to wait until the end of the TV series though. The show is what got me hooked on Game of Thrones, I wouldn't want to know every thing that's going to happen before it actually happens in the show. I don't think I would enjoy it as much tbh. The way I see it is, when the show does finally run its course, I'm going to be left wanting more(like I am with all my favorite shows) and then I'll actually have the entire books series to look forward to, and I'll learn all those little details the show never showed me.


Also, Breaking Bad. Fuck yes!

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Absolutely love this show. I waited until every episode of season 2 came out before watching and then just "marathoned" it all (I already did something similar for Season 1 except by the time I first heard about the show all the episodes were already out).

Cannot wait for season 3.

I'd say some of my more favored characters so far are Ned, Jaime, Arya, Tyrion, Tywin, Cersei, and Daenerys. But I like majority of all the characters anyway simply because a large majority of the characters are complex, grey, and intricately designed.

You'll be waiting awhile. There are 7 books planned, more if he gets carried away and has to split up books again. So, you'll be waiting at least 6 years (they're splitting book three into two seasons), longer if they split other books into two seasons.

If you still have the patience to wait until the end of the TV series, I commend you, as I'm an impatient fucker.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

That really is a long wait.. damn. I'm pretty sure I'll stick it out though, unless the show takes a turn for the worst. As long as I keep getting new episode I should be fine, I might go ahead and just read book 1 and 2, and read behind the TV show, since I'll have so much time between seasons.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

I'm about 30% through book 3 now, god damn. God. Damn. I'll be able to read all your spoilers soon, you bastards.

Also, I landed on the Wikipedia page for "Usurper" and it ended with this:
Quote:
"Some famous examples considered usurpers are Pope Leo IX, George W Bush, Henry IV of England, Catherine II of Russia, Miguel of Portugal, Robert Baratheon of Westeros, Habibullah Ghazi of Afghanistan."

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

So I was talking to some people about being bored and having nothing to do on my days off and the one guy was like, "You should watch Game of Thrones. It has incest." and I'm like, why the hell would I wanna watch something about incest? But then I was just really fucking bored, so I was like what the hell, why not.

Fuck that guy for ruining my life. I spent a week marathoning the fuck out of the first two seasons. Now I need to find myself the ebooks or something cause I can't wait for next season to know what happens.

Don't forget to read all books even thought you watched the first two seasons. The books are a LOT better and different.
