    She doesn't remind me of Jennifer Hewitt at all. And that's a great thing.

    As ridiculously successful as the producers have been thusfar in their adaptation, with 90% of their changes being improvements on an already incredible trio of novels, I'm going to need a few of the following to make it out alive: Arya, Davos, Tyrion, Jamie, and Jon. That is on the author, though. Equally importantly, I'm going to need a significant majority of the following to die brutally: Walder Frey, Roose Bolton, Petyr Baelish, Joffrey, Tywin, Cersei, Gregor Clegane, the rest of Arya's list, Balon Greyjoy, and maybe even that sick f'er torturing Theon because that guy makes Joffrey look sane.

    This are my thoughts as of this point in the show, and not the books, so as to avoid any potential spoilage.

    I think the fact that they're actually killing some of the main protagonists is my favorite part of the show. Better than any dragons, boobs, conspiracy, dirty joke, swordfight, war... I don't want my heroes to always be fine in the end, I want there to be a reason to fear for their safety. Anyone remember that prison show Oz? I mean they killed just about every damn character in that show, and then they killed the people that replaced them. I think that kind of stuff is awesome.

    Maybe I'll feel like crap for a while if a character I like gets killed but at least it gives me an emotional connection to the show. In this case, there are still plenty of characters I like alive and kicking and new ones are being made almost every couple of episodes. It sucks that they've now (presumably) lost the whole Northern rebellion storyline but it's not like the Seven Kingdoms are safe with the White Walkers, Wildlings and Khaleesi all knocking on the door. Something else will take the driver's seat of the show and it'll be good.

    Dude, Big Daddy Lannister is the best character on the show.

    Great points by everyone...really. The thing is, you have to remember the books are 800 page massive reads and they are up to book seven(?) I think. Things are going to happen. There is a huge cast and people die. The whole Game of Thrones concept almost begs for folks to make the wrong choices(with consequences) and circumstances evolving to create new and unexpected alliances.

    And, are you upset at the loss of Cat and Robb or are you mad because it was such a bizaare and ultimately empty sacrifice? Robb made poor decisions by the bushel. He betrayed a promise. Cat almost singlehandedly forced all the events into motion. And...not the best mother. How much longer does the gazillion Kings rebellion grind on before you all start getting bored with it? SmytheKing mentions the potential loss of viewers with the whiteknuckle liking of a character. I disagree entirely. I think the uncertainty keeps people watching. And the ever evolving viewpoints help to guarantee a story that is less likely to bore folks. And that's what this shows strength is. You may get hurt/angry/threaten to leave...but you won't get bored. As Birdman said...trust the material and the fact that Benioff/Weiss have not had a single misstep yet. I'm sorry(forgot who said it) but their handling of this material has been flawless and actually improved a lot so far. So be sad...mourn...but stick around. You'll be glad you did.
