I heard that they are moving more and more away from the books
This was in a Jon Stewart interview with Peter Dinklage.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

In part that's because the author has not been keeping up. The current season depends in part on the book still being written. The author did share with the producers the major plot points and promises to hurry up and finish the next book. But if the elderly (in his 70s) author dies or gets very ill, at least they can finish the TV series with knowledge of where the plot is going. I believe there is only going to be one more season after this and that the author has always been OK with the TV series deviating a bit from the books. I believe the author began his career in TV and movies and knows how it has to work to work.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Best case scenario we get two different stories to this... One from a book and one from a TV show. I wouldn't mind them being very dissimilar.

He is 66 and from what I hear he is in good health. Some worry about him being overweight and in poor shape but in truth that does not need to mean anything. If he decides that it will take 10 years for the two books to be finished, or even longer if he feel there needs to be an 8th book then maybe we need to worry.

Eps 5 and 6 were pretty boring and it's getting annoying how the good/neutral characters are continuously shit out of luck.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

soooo.... Daenerys and Tyrion met...

wtf?

That was rather unexpected as it has not happened in the books yet. This mean literally anything could happen. Sure makes the shows more exciting.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Can we talk about the jail scene though? Oh my god.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

I am so bored with this season so far, it's just been so much slower than previous seasons.  I honestly cannot think of something memorable that has happened.  But those boobies were lovely...

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

My thoughts exactly. I wouldn't make it one setting if it wasn't for the boobies.

F$ck me .. what an episode that was ...

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Looks like winter isn't coming, looks like winter is already here.

What's the backstory for the seasons in the GOT verse? Different tilt of the planet and different orbital dynamics with the sun, or is it all magic or sloppy plotting?

Watching the episode before work was not a good idea. So #HOIP. I got pumped and now I just wanna fight and destroy things with a sword. Gotta get me some valyrian steel.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Finally an episode that wasn't a borefest and more of Tyrion (and wine) is always good for a GoT episode.

Did that just happen?

I had the chills when i heard the dragon coming. Although, i figured him much grander!

Even more impressive was the riding lesson. That portends great things, especially when they come in threes.

Freaking Stannis so dumb it's not even measurable - but great ending and I'm assuming they're not fully grown yet?!

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Gutted is the right word. Especially after that scene at Castle Black that had my eyes welling with man tears. Ugh.

Loved the end scene. Dænerys be like, "I'm dragon(hà) my pretty, pert ass away from this bullshit". I love how she just leaves all her people to deal with the hordes of harpy fucks.

I watched this a few times along with the music. It was hilarious. Even funnier was my 3 year old daughter saying "Your the-ending story has a scary dragon! My the-ending story has a nice pink dragon."
