    The giant looked fantastic for a television show. Having Petyr do Dontos' bidness to reduce the number of characters is no big loss, except for one part that would be in the fourth season of the show. Losing the Arstan mystery is even less of a loss. Overall, it was a good episode but I just wasn't feeling the excitement I usually get. Maybe it was just all the setup. That said, I loved every scene with Tyrion in it, as usual, especially the loving conversation he had with his father. Margaery working up an image of a woman of the people was great. Jon Snow's scenes did very little for me, nothing happened in Robb's scene, and Arya, Jamie, and Bran were MIA. Melisandre is always entertaining at least. The Shae/Roz chat just felt like an excuse to give the two actresses some dialogue, outside of maybe pointing out that Roz is well aware of what Petyr is.

    Can we go back to having separate threads for those who read the book and those who haven't? I'm afraid to read anything in this thread.

    The big difference? I don't read too much about people saying "**** Game of Thrones, I'm done".

    Watching Game of Thrones premier for the gazillionth time. Ciaran Hines as Mance is as terrific as I hoped. Tormund Giantsbane is well cast too.

    I didn't like his casting as Mance. I read him as a younger swashbuckler rather than a mature man with quiet gravitas.

    Ok, in theory you didn't like it, early to tell, but how did you feel in practice?

    COHEN'S NERD CORNER

    EDIT : Some nerd went and compared some of the Kings to GoT characters. I'm told it will be an ongoing series.
