Re: Game of Thrones: Season 3. TV Series Discussion. NO BOOK SPOILERS...NONE

Season 3 ended so quickly. I might start reading the books, I cant wait another 1 year to know what happens next.

Last episode was ok, nothing special and everything I was expecting to happen. Best part was Arya's first kill, I'm also really liking Hound/Arya tag team.

Tyrion/Tywin was great too.

Episode 9 had really left a bad taste in my mouth, I was really hoping for Starks to get their revenge on Lannisters but they have just been wiped away. Arya, Bran, Sansa and Snow (not even a stark) cant do anything for atleast 2 seasons. I am not really rooting for anyone at the moment. Daenerys and dargons are cool but I'm not really a fan, never was. Except for Tyrion I hate all the Lannisters. I dont give a shit about Greyjoys and Freys. Bran is boring and Stannis is a loser in my opinion. The only people I like and who are not dead yet are Arya, Tyrion and Jon Snow.

^ I dunno. There are plenty of likeable characters still in the game. VARYS, Davos, Theon (that is, if you feel sorry for him), Jaimie, Brienne, Sansa, Blackfish, HODOR, Samwell, Gilly, The Hound, Brotherhood without banners, Jorah etc.

Hell, I even like and hate Ramsay Snow at the same time because of how brilliantly sadistic he is.

I liked the ending. It gave us some hope at least for next season. Ended on a (sort of) high note and will be a memorable scene years from now.

Personally I don't get the extreme hate for her, especially since her current roles imo is supposed to be troublesome. Although I have to agree, that she doesn't bring out the best possible result. I don't feel the connection between her and Tyrion. I think, she plays the "hard side" of Shae well, but doesn't deliver the "soft side".

Also, she is outshone by the amazing charisma of most of the other cast.
I just don't understand how she landed the role. Of all the possible people who must have auditioned for it, they choose her? Why? It looks even more sketchy when the vast majority of the cast is brilliant. She's simply not talented enough to be on the Game of Thrones cast.

Technically, that wasn't Arya's first kill. Her first kill was the stable boy in King's Landing, when she was trying to flee the city. Now, yes, you can say that was the first MAN she has killed in the TV show.

In the books, the whole thing was different anyway.

I particularly didn't really care much about that scene, especially because like I said before, they're trying way to hard to make her look like an emotionless badass way too soon, when it should come naturally. Besides, it really didn't have much impact like the first man she killed in the books. Now that one, that one was special. I was legitimately shocked and surprised at the whole thing.

Got a bit of a dilemma at the moment, trying to decide whether or not to read the books, seriously can't wait another year but I also don't want spoil anything when season 4 comes around. I loved the Red Wedding because I hadn't been expecting it. What to do?

I think I'm going to read the first book to pass the time, but I don't want to spoil myself.

Buy the books guys. For the love of God, buy them all. They're 1000000000 times better than the TV show, and the TV show is probably the greatest series out there, so that's saying something.

You should experience everything that will happen in the series through the books first, because you know, they're a trillion times better. And even if you do not want to spoil anything because you want to watch it in the TV show first, just read the books until you catch up with the show.

Simple, isn't it?

I'm in the same position as you lot too. Been debating with myself on whether or not I should read the books. I don't think I can hack the wait until next season but at the same time I enjoy watching everything unfold on screen more than reading it. It's just more shocking and enjoyable to me that way.

I think I'm going to read the first two books while waiting for Season 4. How I'm going to stretch those two books out over 10 months I don't know. Maybe read the third book up until where they are in the show.

Re: Game of Thrones: Season 3. TV Series Discussion. NO BOOK SPOILERS...NONE

I definitely prefer the TV show to the books. I've read the first 2 now, gonna read book 3 pt. 1 soon, and I've found I have a love-hate relationship with GRRM's writing. There are a few times where I have been actively put off by some line or other - ones that spring to mind are instances where he has used the word "butt", an absolute no-no in any occasion, let alone in my fantasy books. Can't fault him for the actual plot, in which I'm totally engrossed, but his actual writing doesn't blow me away in the way Tolkien's would.

I'm definitely glad I was a big fan of the show before I read the first book, because I'm pretty sure I would have had a ton of trouble dealing with the endless torrent of new names and places.
