David and Dan are too full of themselves and often make wrong interpretations / straight up mistakes / let their own view affect the story in a bad way. I understand the need to change things in an adaptation, but in season 3 they do not care and they change things they could easily keep (Brienne and Jaime being rather evenly matched rather than Brienne crushing Jaime, for instance) and there's hardly any actual scenes from the book - the Queen of Thorns scene (which was great) is the only one up until now. I can see the show going downhill soon, especially if they keep including useless scenes like last week's brothel Pod scene.

On a more positive sidenote, has anyone seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsTVnZm9hFg

Personally, I don't believe it (I don't think the show writers are that clever), it's not in the books (Talisa is made up by the show) so I can't be sure.

The Pod scene was to lighten things up. The show would be a bad melodrama like walking dead if it didn't have scenes like that.

Believe me, there are plenty of ways they could 'lighten things up' while still getting some story-worthy things across in a way that makes sense, the books aren't all dark and bleak either. The truth is they simply wanna show off some naked chicks (not very pretty ones either, I must add) to please people who watch the show just for that reason.

Oh, I was talking about the part where Tyrion and Bronn are asking about Pod's horse cock, not the ladies.

I dunno, they seemed pretty good looking to me.

I mean both scenes, really. Also, a virgin pleasing 3 whores so much they decide to let him go without payment (which isn't even their call to make)? Please. Tyrion looked like a freaky gameshow host introducing the whores behind curtains 1, 2 and 3!

Another problem I had with it was that mostly everyone seems to remember Pod's little adventure because it's at the beginning and the end of these scenes, and not what was said in between, something that was actually quite important...

Eh, turns out a lot of people who only watch the show also didn't seem to get who Edmure and the Blackfish were...

Having read the books, I've been waiting for what I can only assume happened last night (I'm travelling, can't watch till later today).

Also, I enjoy the way the show's been able to give me scenes that happened around the ones in the books. Keeps it interesting. And let's keep in mind that George RR Martin is heavily involved.

It did happen. Pretty heavy. I saw a guy challenging Walder Frey to a fist fight on his Facebook page :lol:

Let's now all together hope that Stannis will give those bastards what for.

I could totally see people doing that.
At the renaissance fair wedding, the best man and maid of honor get "murdered" during their dance, along with a number of volunteers from the audience.
Then the bride and groom dance among the corpses.

The Freys really brought the house down.

I bet Talisa didn't grow any more more appreciative of Westerosi marriage customs, either...

Well, they all got screwed over last night, so you probably shouldn't feel so bad.
