    I think it's pretty simple, really; Talk about the TV series, speculate about the TV series and that's it. Otherwise, go to the other thread.

    I think my issue is with the childish, hissy fit that seems to happen if someone strays close to edges of that.

    I remember one thread (maybe this one) where someone mentioning that a character's name had been changed was enough to cause drama.

    It really isnt that difficult. If it refers even slightly to the books, dont persistently post links and youtube videos like a massive cunt.

    I cant think of a more simple guideline.

    To be fair this thread could be doing with being nuked from orbit and a TV group be set up.

    People genuinely can't seem to grasp the basic concept of a TV thread and every series we seem to amass 3 or 4 new spastics.

    I mean generally, rather than just this issue specifically.

    But also this issue specifically.

    DDB's post was totally fine. He was basically saying 'The TV show is a great adaptation of the books, and it often works better as a great TV rather than clunky written books'

    Totally fine.

    It didnt work before as everyone else was moaning at you shitting up the thread. Also, I took you off to see the killer instinct thread but since that looks rubbish, I might stick you back on since I can use youtube and am aware of reddit.

    The issue is that the TV series comes from a very popular line of books, and it's obviously intriguing and often non-spoilerish (whatever that fucking means. I mean, I get you wouldn't want the end of something to be spoiled, but to insist on not knowing any small little detail seems a little strange) to discuss the adaptation choice.

    The book thread is an unnatural place to discuss this (if you're not aware of the rules), as it's for the books. This is the thread for the TV show so one assumes little things can go here. But then people start crying.

    Great idea. Send DaddyDoom to the book thread where he will see all the discussions about the 5th book that are spoilers. Fucking huge ones at that!

    Looks like now is a good time to start avoiding this thread until a new episode actually gets broadcasted. It's going to be weeks and months of bitching isn't it.

    I fail to see how you can have any problem with the initial post that started this discussion yet again.

    "Hey guys. I'm a TV viewer and I decided to go and read the books. The TV show is better. It's really well done."

    Waaaaaaaaaa! You typed book! WAaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
    Go away!

    We could all forget about it and move on? :) Or would that not be petty enough for EG, so we must continue whining until the whining about the whining entirely overshadows any original whining :D

    Sorry, what were we talking about again?

    Oh yeah...

    Making the wife watch it now. I've enjoyed sitting through it again as I've seen bits I missed. I only watched series 1 and 2 episodes once as I rushed through them in about two weeks. It's been nice to take it slow and drink it all in, especially after reading the books.

    We watched S02E06 last night. Bran and Rickon got 'roasted' by Theon after escaping Winterfell. She says she doesn't want to watch it anymore. Mind you, she said that after Ned got it and then after Roberts bastard baby got it's throat cut.

    She's so going to kill me for making her watch the red wedding.

    Deleted what I just wrote as it will cause problems. I was speculating about a character, but as I know a small detail more than you lot by reading the books, I'll leave it out.

    Happy now?

    I thought they revealed it wasn't Bran and Rickon too soon. If I remember right they are only believed dead for 1 episode?

    Word is Tommen Baratheon has been re cast for S4 so no more heavy Liverpool accent.

    In fact reports say he will be played by..
    Dean-Charles Chapman who played one of the Lannister squires killed by Karstark in S3

    Daario Naharis has been recast as well, which will be a bit jarring. The previous was a bit of a wooden male model though.

    Yeah the new Mountain looks like a beast but has a very thick Icelandic accent so they might have someone voice over him?
    The guy from S2 was never going to last as he was too thin.

    Also I don't think the Daario one is official yet? Michiel Huisman has been confirmed to be in S4 but that's it.

    I'm so fucking glad they got rid of that guy.
    On the other hand, I'm also sad, because I was looking forward to Jorah stabbing him in his smug blonde face.

    Watching Reign of Fire last night and a very young but clear as day Jack Gleeson pops up for a quick close up.
    That's 2 films Bale had the chance to kill Joffrey.



    Good that they got rid of the space rocket outfit she had in S2.
