June 13, 2012 9:38 pm I hope this has implications with the Earth three Owlman, who is also a dark reflection of Batman... and an Owl and looks a bit like the Talons anyway. Any Earth Three Scott Snyder Series on the horizon?

June 4, 2012 4:20 pm @USPUNX Just in the way that those shows are also mainly talk, which is one of the criticisms made of GoT

June 4, 2012 1:20 pm @RoiVampire And that is perfectly fine! You don't have to watch or like shows you don't like just because other people like them. Same goes for comics films or books, to each its own.
June 4, 2012 1:09 pm @RoiVampire Not worried about what "the show" feels at all. It's doing fine on its own.
June 4, 2012 12:56 pm @RoiVampire And that's perfectly fine, if it's not your kind of show there's no reason for you to watch it. I just find it a bit unfair to criticise the show for not being something it's not even trying to be. Like criticising an apple for not being a banana.
June 4, 2012 12:51 pm @Jim Sure, the similarity only goes as far as "it's all talking about stuff, and it's political".
June 4, 2012 12:49 pm @wally I think having read the books really helps, you know who everyone is, but i started reading the books after watching season 1, and am still in the middle of the second book... so it is not really necessary. I do think the series gains from either repeated watchings or being familiar with the source material. And as I say below... the payoff thing... it's just not that kind of book, it's playing with what you'd expect from fantasy. @RoiVampire I understand that but I think what's so interesting about both the series and the books is the way in which it goes against your preconceived ideas of what Fantasy should be. You want it to be about dragons and battles, but it is a lot more about politics and human nature. It's just not that kind of story.
June 4, 2012 12:24 pm Hell some of the best series are people talking. Have you watched the West Wing? This is like sword and sorcery West Wing. What's wrong with people talking? Is it just attention deficit, not being able to follow the conversations? IS it just pure old anti-intellectualism? It's great talking, watch it for the talking, each time Varys sits on a table opposite from Tyrion I am riveted.
