Huh, that's weird. I wonder if he's just mentioned somewhere in the book as the "eldest of Robert's brothers" or something like that, and I just interpreted Stannis as being the eldest Baratheon brother. Not that it really makes a difference at all.

I always pictured Stannis looking exactly like Gerard Butler in 300, only with a receding hairline

Hawk 04-02-2012 04:10 PM

Really? I always pictured him as much thinner than that, not so pumped.

Craster and his keep didn't look nearly as gnarly as I imagined.

Agree about Craster. He was almost refined. I imagined him to be downright grotesque and crude and completely barbaric.

Yes although the part where he was groping the ass of his daughter-wife was enough to make my wife call bullshit.

I'm seeing that episode 2 is hitting the "scene" already! :rockon:

You know I thought that the dude who plays Stannis was really great in the show Adams when he played Thomas Jefferson. That was a show I really liked, so I was actually stoked when I heard he was playing Stannis. I thought he did a decent job in the first episode.

Dude- Crasters house was DEAD ON! Loved it. And Dolorus Ed popped up for a line or two. Great start so far, but wow... this story is so huge. Following all these characters and stories at once is going to be insane.

My only down point was the Dany scenes. I wasn't digging the acting from any of them.

Agree on scope. I'm already feeling like I'm not spending enough time with the various stories. That is just going to get worse. Could make each episode 2 hours, and I'd be happy.

Yeah. MOAR!!!

There's sooo much content. It's hard to fit a thousand pages into ten hours of television.

Jawshco 04-02-2012 10:18 PM

Erg... Episode two is already out there. Trying hard to resist watching it. Ha!

Huffmeister 04-03-2012 11:59 AM

I can't remember, was the Brotherhood Without Banners shown at all in Clash of Kings? Or did they mostly appear in Storm of Swords? I can't wait to see Thoros and Dondarrion.

100 pages an hour isn't bad, but there just isn't a lot of fluff to leave out like you have with normal books/written stories.

They're going to have to start stretching certain storylines over multiple seasons I think. Some events (RW...) make more sense toward the end of a season than they do near the middle.

Looks like the first episode was a huge ratings success! According to this link, and other stories I have read, it looks pretty certain that they are planning for book 3 to take two full seasons. With ratings like this, you have to think HBO will be on board!
