    In deference to Doc Naysay and others, most of my comments regarding the show will be in this forum, simply because it is almost impossible, having read the books, to not slip details here and there. So, book readers, there was a LOT of condensing last night in regards to Lady Stark's backstory. Her father is already dead. Once again, I applaud the decision, old George could have used an editor with a sharper hand at times. I absolutely hate the thought of watching the Reek's transformation. Since Theon was my fave character in the books it was hard enough when it was revealed post-tortures, but to watch it happen...ugh. So far I still think they have been remarkable with the casting. Darby disagrees with me, but I think Ciaran Hines was a briliiant choice as Mance. I never really twigged him to be young-ish...he was one of the characters that I never really had a firm vision of in my head. What say you guys????

    I think because he was portrayed as a ladies man/minstrel wandering south of the wall to pick up chicks whenever he chose might give people the impression that he would be more handsome and charming.

    I'm somewhere in between in regards to the casting of Mance Rayder. I think Ciaran Hinds will do a great job, but he's not what I pictured.

    Now, THIS guy is EXACTLY what I pictured Mance Rayder to look like.

    Good call on that one Ecktore. Except for the fact that Carlyle is tied up/associated with Once..., that probably would have excluded him. Oh, and he is about what, 4'10??? But it would have got my thumbs up.

    Nice to see ol'wooden eye from Pirates as the Warg.

    Lots of embellishment last night character wise. Catelyn Stark's little confession re:Jon Snow. Joffrey's stance on gay marraige. The Karstarks 'you lost the war when you married her'...all good touches to round out story/character. And...you just know, that the guy who said he is there to break Theon out is one of the sadistic mind f' tricks that poor Reek endured. Man, that is rough to watch. I guess I am glad that they moved 2 of my fave characters (Theon/Davos) into the mix earlier, but I hate having to watch that.

    I'm telling you, he's EXACTLY what I pictured Mance to look like. Of course, you're right about him not being able to do it because of that other show the wife and I are watching, but when I first saw him prance around as Rumplestiltskin, the bulb in my head just lit up. Again, I'm not taking anything away from Hinds at all. I think he'll do great.

    Don't worry about it. I come into these threads expecting spoilers. When I really didn't want to know, I stay away until I'm fully caught up.

    Word on the street is the guy that said he will break Theon out is Ramsey Snow.
