I kinda wanna take a stab at this. You say you like these arguments, but sometimes yours just don't cut it. Maybe they just don't have enough edge too them.

Edit: I was sooooooooooooooo mad at GOT last week. Red wedding threw me for a loop, and i want more lol.

Wifey ruined it for me with her constantly hyping it up. "Just wait. BIG **** is going down next episode."

"Um, okay."

I try to explain to her that it is possible to spoil something without telling what happens, and she just tells me to read the books. Smiley: glare

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Well, if past seasons were any indication, we all knew something big was going to happen. I haven't read the books, and i'm not going to start now. But yeah, i expected it, but didn't have anyone telling me how BIG it was going to be. I can see how that would make it a little anticlimactic for you.

Georg RR Martin said something along the lines of "Now you know why all the book readers were sad thirteen years ago."

My GF gets irritated when I don't have the same reaction she has watching the show. I keep telling her I read the books so I know what happens Smiley: lol

That's interesting.. I didn't actually know that, but it makes sense.

It doesn't change the realities of distance, but we'll have to see if it's enough of an improvement for European players.

I have a feeling that HBO might just continue the story, whether there is a book or not.

George RR Martin has told the writers of the show how the rest of the story pans out just in case anything happens to him.

It all depends on the writers, but I doubt they could pull it off with the same sense of epic grandness that Martin is capable of. They would probably be less likely to kill off popular characters, which I feel is one of the unique qualities of this story. I would much rather see another capable author finish the series (like sanderson did for jordan) rather than HBO deciding how the series should end.

True. Popular characters never got killed off in other HBO hit shows, like Sopranos and The Wire.

Puh-leaze. I'm sure HBO could keep the ball rolling if they were given direction by George R. R. Martin, without him finishing the book series, but I hope it doesn't come to that.

I can't believe you just used the sopranos as your example of how HBO can make a show epic. The finale was one of the biggest disappointments ever.
