No, I dislike what they're doing to the source material. Leaving out stuff 'cos there's no money / time, fine. Changing dialogue parts that change a character's personality completely where it is just as easy (easier, even) to have the characters say the lines from the book (or at least, keep the original meaning of those lines and not make them do a 180 degree turn) just because of the show makers' personal likes and dislikes of characters, not so fine. I was looking forward to seeing Stannis on screen but all they've done is paint him as a remorseless villain, and interviews show they don't (want to) understand the character at all.


Stannis I agree with(I mean seriously, he's supposed to be an athiest, not some fanatic), but stannis wasn't really a great character until late ASOS. If anyone is a comic book villain, it's Littlefinger.

As for cutting stuff out they cut a few "larger" scenes from season 3(fist of the first men/mance's army) to have more money for season 4(Large battle of Meereen, battle of castle black)

Just in the last week Rick and Morty, True detective, and Megas XLR

I watch a lot of shows when I'm working on stuff, working my way through Always Sunny in Philly and South park when I just want background noise.

Doctor Who, Primeval, Top Gear

Holy shit, you're lazy. You just could't say:
Doctor Who, Sherlock, Top Gear, could you?

No,I'm the opposite of lazy.:

Doctor Who, Sherlock, Top Gear.
Compare the lengths of those two sentences.

Yeah I get that and I have no problem with it, the cast alone must cost millions. It's just the writing (sometimes). George tries to be subtle, you know? (most of the time). That kind of subtlety can't translate completely to the screen, but as I saw someone else put it 'GoT is about as subtle as a sledgehammer to the face.' The treatment of Littlefinger being the best example. He's such a multi-layered, intriguing, difficult to understand book character. In the show he's just a comic book villain as you said. And he's not the only character that suffers from over-simplification. It's still a good show (though I have to say, mostly because the source material is simply that good) but knowing what it could have been does change your perspective.
