I suppose they're trying to fit in everything they can, as Kim said, for more and more points of view.

Was talking about it with my friend; and we've realised that we haven't a clue of the names of most of the people or what they're doing :unsure:

I don't think that works very well though - you can do it in a book, but on TV...the constant switching between POVs where very few actually happens is getting annoying...plus it leaves out some important aspects while showing others that wouldn't be as important...

I think POV works, but they're relying to heavily on cliff hangers to drive this season.

In the books they left it to the imagination... Honestly though I think that the TV series is just an excuse to show us ASOIAF in pornz.

These little subtleties that readers pick up on would otherwise be lost in translation if they did it the same way on tv. Remember, they're catering to the masses here. So long as it isn't wrecking the narrative context and crucial plotpoints of the storyline, I'm okay with these little thrown-bones to the TV audience.

Ok.... Wow... Um... just wow.


That was such a cliffhanger if I ever saw one. Guess I'll be torrenting a new episode every week. *curse you shitty HBO here*

I really should torrent this season, but I want it to get a little farther first.

Be careful what torrents you get. Try to stick to a private site on those. I'm the contact the DMCA sends their notices to for my ISP, and I'd say a good 10-20% of them are for various Game of Thrones torrents.

All I know is, if they cut out the scene of Renly eating a peach at his meeting with Stannis, or the hawk discussion with Davos, I will be one angry fan-nerd.

Still plenty of time for them to fit those conversations into the story. They certainly didn't miss their opportunities. They're simple to do that the audience will largely understand, add to character depth, and are short and easily adapted to the screen. There are other subtle parts in the book that I can understand them omitting, like Tyrion's first encounter with Jon Snow and Snow's impressions of him as he leaves, but those things are no-brainers.
