Since it's been mentioned time and time again, Dany and Drogo are very consensual in the novel. She's a virgin their first encounter but he's tender and caring despite being a bloodthirsty killer of men. It's creepy because she's 13-14 in the novel, but girls were married at this age all the time in the era that this story is based upon.

Jon Snow is indeed the bastard of the lot.

They pretty much made all the kids older. I'm OK with that I guess.

martin himself has admitted he got the ages wrong anyway in terms of what some of them might have to do before the series ends, so I'm sure it was with his blessing.

I read that he originally he was going to advance the story quite a few years after A Storm of Swords. Apparently there was too much flashback going on and that didn't mesh well with his POV structure. So he had to kinda go back to the drawing board and figure out a way to end it in another way.

Are they really going to do the entire first book in ten episodes? The first episode didn't cover THAT much of it and it still felt semi-rushed.

I think so. I agree that ten episodes doesn't seem like enough time to do it right, but we'll see. The last episode is called Fire and Blood, hinting that it will indeed end on the cliffhanger of the first book.

yeah it was very fast paced. otoh they did knock a fair few chapters out. i'm sure there are things that will suffer as a result of the lack of time though. theres a lot to fit in, in the last 9 hours.

Again, back to the rape/non-rape thing. Since rape is only a legal term it's only rape if the law was broken. Since they are married it would be hard for it to be rape no matter if she wanted to do it or not.

Technicalities are a bitch.

One could argue that it was non-consensual and they made it clear in the TV show that she didn't want to do it. But that doesn't necessarily constitute rape.

I went into this not knowing a damn thing (besides Jason Mamoa's fine ass being in it )so it all looked good to me. That bit of foreshadowing with the mom making her son promise to stop climbing was kool. I just knew something was going to happen to him that involved him climbing the castle walls. Towards the end when he was climbing the wall and the music started playing, I thought to myself "Aw shit he gonna fall." Then when he caught the siblings doing what they shouldn't have been doing,*gag* I just knew he was done for, smh. I don't like those fuckers (no pun intended) already lol.
