Or more 1 on 1 softcore fucking. Anything but more plot-forwarding!

That's great news that the next season is going to focus on a smaller portion of the novel. Should help solve some of the problems that plagued the second season. Though I do have faith that they will find a way to fuck up!

Thankfully, A Storm of Swords is getting 20 episodes. They may have fudged up Season 2 a little, but you'd have to be a complete retard to mess up seasons 3 and 4. A Storm of Swords is packed to the brim with badass plot twists and the like.

Wow, this is sort of related, but I'm just watching Batman Begins and guess what? The kid that plays Joffrey is in the movie. Mind.Blown.

No? That's a legitimate question I'm asking. I'm fond of characters that are efficient killers, or overall skilled in combat. Is it a childish thing to like? If I offended you, i'm sorry. I'll try to make it up to you by beating myself with a hammer...the rubber ones though. The metal ones hurt.

Some cast members announced for S3, including Diana Rigg as the Queen of Thorns. She was one of the most beautiful, sexiest women alive for a while. I'm curious and excited (no, not excited in that way) to see how she handles the role.

Looking forward to seeing Qyburn (I know, I'm drawn to the most fucked up characters). Of all the castings announced so far, he is furthest from what I had in mind for this character. I also didn't expect him to be introduced until later so maybe they'll work him into some bigger roles since he becomes a more important player later on.

Having only just started reading the first book the other day, I never knew Tyrion basically has the eyes of David Bowie.

David Bowie would make that show even more awesome than it already is. His character should be a wizard who can turn into an eagle :lol:

I like Charles Dance a lot as Tywin Lannister, but having David Bowie in this role would had been cool!

Tywin would look a bit more like the twins, in that case, yes. Plus the scene of him skinning the animal in his tent would have been even better.

This is one of the best shows HBO has ever done, I never knew there were books until reading this thread. I didn't understand "A Song of Fire and Ice" was a series not the theme song. :???:


I hate how they end the season on such an epic note, with the Others army marching south and such. SO glad I can read ahead.

A Storm of Swords definitely needs more episodes that 10, but what worries me is are they doing it over 2 seasons? From memory pretty much all the of the important things happen in the second half of the book which would mean a potentially boring season before all the good stuff happens - which could cause the show to suffer. Clash of Kings was a relatively slow book with a big ending, but I see its main purpose as setting the scene for the main events in ASoS. Id hate to see another season doing the same thing.

Yeah, pacing is definitely going to be tricky.

ASOS SPOILERS
Spoiler: show
Episode 9 of season 3 will probably be about The Red Wedding. Maybe have the Purple Wedding in episode 10. Reason for this is so keep up the consistency of having the 9th episode be a big episode, then the 10th one be about the aftermath and setting the stage for the next season. Stretch the Danaerys arc out of a bit so the sacking of Yunkai happens towards the end of the season. Story from The Riverlands section will probably be cut down.

More ASOS spoilers:

Spoiler: show
I doubt this will happpen, but I hope they have the Red and Purple weddings in the same episode, with the penultimate scene being Joffrey dying, the it cuts to the Twins with Robb and Cat getting betrayed.

^ That would be retarded. They don't happen anywhere near at the same time.
Spoiler: show
Doing it this way, Sansa never learns that her family is dead, which would ruin the story completely.

Been a fan since the first season of the show and it got me into reading the books as well. Currently 1/3 of the way into A Clash of Kings and its freaking phenomenal. I hope to finish it and begin reading A Storm of Swords before the 3rd season begins.

And now I'm going to go ahead and contribute some here. This was always a wtf moment for me. Poor, poor Drogo. :lol:

I wonder how she'll look with a wisp of a mustache.

Major ASOS spoilers
Spoiler: show
A while back, they made a casting call for amputees and male cellists.

http://winteriscoming.net/2012/10/new-i ... n-ireland/

RW is pretty much confirmed now. They're even going to show Robb's head sewn on to Grey Wind (and vice versa), oh god. That's going to be a huge punch in the gut since there's more attachment to TV Robb than book Robb.

Read a few articles about rumors surrounding Ramsay. Not 100% confirmed yet, but Iwan Rheon from Misfits was cast as "Boy."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/27/iwan-rheon-game-of-thrones_n_1711215.html

In another article which I can't find the link to at the moment, there were comments about shooting a scene in which "Boy" was
Spoiler: show
pulling Theon down from a torture device, so it seems we may get the "off-screen" torture scenes (some described in A Dance With Dragons) that would have happened during A Storm of Swords next season.

Fuck, I'm just over halfway done with A Clash Of Kings, and I get to borrow my friend's copy of season 1 of GoT. Seeing all this Season 3 talk makes me 1) want to start watching the show and 2) start reading Storm of Swords.

GOT is an awesome serious, though S2 was a bit of a let down. It's responsible for getting me reading again though, after like 10 years of no reading suddenly I'm plowing through novels like it's my job. Can't wait for book 6!

Hmm, interesting news, George R. R. Martin has been hired to develop and produce other series for HBO in the next two years. I could certainly use more top-notch genre fiction on TV.

Wait a minute... Motherfucker! You're supposed to be writing the next book! :fuck:

Wow, now I really do think he's trolling us. His short story in the next anthology isn't even a new Dunk & Egg story, it's something else entirely... :nono: While I do always crave more Westeros fiction, he really needs to just fucking focus, geez...

Dunk and Egg series being discussed.

I would've liked to see the War of the Usurper, starting from the tourney at Harrenhal all the way up to the Tower of Joy.

Of course, book spoiler/theory
Spoiler: show
book 6 and maybe 7 would need to be released before the prequel comes out if R+L=J is true.
