There is a lot of nudity in the books, they've actually cut a lot of it out of the show.

Can't argue that. Now if only the redhead on True Blood would get naked.

True but personally in the book the nudity generally served a purpose. Be it showing that Cersei really only manipulates using her body, or early on representing the vulnerability of Dany and how she slowly grows more confident and comfortable with herself.

For example in the series there is a scene in series one were Littlefinger is expanding on his back history, and in the background they constantly got two women making out. IMO that actually took away from the story since it distracted from the more important material currently happening.

Season 1 of The Wire also had a lot of unnecessary nudity also, it got better after that though.

See I thought the opposite, I thought his performance was so strong that it eclipsed everything that was going on in the scene. Sure I noticed the two women, but Aiden Gillen was in Boss mode in that scene.

I'm going to have to agree with this too. Even though their were two women basically lesbian fucking each other in the background I was paying more attention to Gillen's performance. That was a pretty strong scene.

re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

It was fairly awful, they didn't need to smash us over the head with the image of fucking. Heavy handed.

Finished Homeland. Spoilers ahead obv.
Spoiler for :
It was good. BUT. I don't know if I buy the hype, I guess? It was good but it wasn't 'The Wire' or 'Breaking Bad', good? At least I didn't think so. Part of this was maybe the fact I didn't find brody's motivation for turning to be legit. Like it felt kind of weak, or at the very least the episode where the reasons behind his turn were explained felt a little weak to me. It was very tense and all that, but I dunno. I still liked it, I guess maybe the way others were describing it made it seem like 'best show ever'. When I just found it very good.

Also the Nazir/Brody relationship...is weird. Hopefully there is more to it, he seems to give him more leeway than anyone else and I'd like to know why, I think.



Also watched Fringe Season 1 and while it's not as 'good' as Homeland it's very enjoyable. Walter Bishop is GOAT. And the end of Season 1 was pretty damn good. Anything with the Observer seems to be gold, too.
