    The Mountain has been recast for a third time but at least the new one looks the part!

    So many recasts though with such a big cast it's getting harder to keep up.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    Mostly as it's quiet in here right now.....>

    Just started reading A Dance with Dragons and it's been dragging on and on and on and on since the beginning of Storm of Swords (equal to season 2 in the series.) I can't wait for season 4 to start as they're so good at minimising the fluff and getting to the point of the story so much better than Martin himself is on his own. He seriously needs a good editor who's not afraid to say no to him.

    Also looking forward to seeing what they change for the better, as there's so much stuff they could easily leave out of the rest of Storm of Swords, Feat for Crows and what I've read of Dance with Dragons so far. They could probably get all three books into one series. If they do it will be the best series yet.

    Maybe if we can dedicate the next few pages to arguing about this then people will finally accept that it's not worth mentioning them?

    Well if I used the book thread I would spoil it for myself as I've not f8nished them yet.
    Besides its much more fun to come in here and spoil it for you dicks. I understand telling you the series writers are better at putting the story across than Martin himself is, but tbh I couldn't give a shit.
    Ive read the books. The series is better by far. Books. The books.

    Books. The Song of Ice and Fire BOOKS.

    BOOOOOOOOOKKKKKSSSSSSSS!

    If you are reading the books and have not finished them yet then you cannot discuss them on this forum.

    Try and discuss them here and you get abused.

    Discuss them in the book thread and the rest of the series will be spoiled for you.

    When I was reading them I made a couple of posts in the book thread (moving quickly to make sure I didn't spot anything), but apart from that I just had to make do with waiting until I'd finished them.

    It can be done.

    Finish the books and the book thread is fine. There is absolutely no reason to discuss the books in here when it's the TV thread. There will be people who here have also only read some of the books and don't want to be spoiled by someone further along, there will also be people who haven't read any and just want to watch the series at its own pace.

    Unless you've finished the books there will never be a thread for 'Game of Thrones discussion but only up to the exact point you are in the books'.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    And it's not like by coming in here you can discuss anything either, so I'm not sure what the point of posting in here is when you're ahead of the TV show.

    You're actually no better off than before you hit submit.

    The attitude with book readers never fails to amaze me. If/when I start reading the books I would be fully expecting to wait until I finished them before I could discuss them. Yeah, it's annoying, but that's just the way the cookie fucking crumbles.

    "Why isn't there a book thread that is at the exact same place I am in the books!? This is an outrage! What about my civil rights!? I'll just post my thoughts in the TV thread instead, like the self important dick I am."


    Anyways...

    A book thread at TV pace would be nice but attempts to create one are always "merged" with the two existing threads.

    Or just wait until you're finished to discuss the books! This really isn't difficult stuff here.

    It's the same with most media, doesn't matter if it's Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad or whatever.

    The books are enormous though. It took me the best part of 6 months to read all 5. Whereas I just watched 2 seasons of breaking bad in 4 days.

    Anyway new thread launched and awaiting locking...

    Well, I managed to restrain myself apart from one or two posts in the book thread. There's specific GoT forums out there if you're desperate.

    We might as well have a thread for every book and every season if this is the way we're going.

    As this is the 194th page of the thread you can only talk about the 194th page in the book, no more etc.. etc..

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    That's flipping brilliant. I want one.

    Just for the record, the point of my post was similar to one I posted a while back. I was further cementing my opinion that the series has done a much better job of putting the brilliant world across than the original author does. I was not discussing the books, I have no wish to discuss the books, and neither did I ask any question, post any spoilers (even small ones) or say anything that would ruin the enjoyment of anyone at any point in any series or at any point through the FUCKING BOOKS.

    Anyways.....do we know a start date for the next series yet?
