    Game of Thrones is back in less than two weeks! This is a place to discuss news, episodes etc. Spoiler free, but I have also read the books so maybe we can start another thread for book readers too. Excited for the new season!

    Series one finished but Sky have removed the other series from “on demand”. Decided to buy the box asset so I can catch up before the next series next year. loving it so far although I have to close the curtains because I have no net curtains and my tv is quite large so all those …. graphic scenes are very easy for the outside world to see lol. I was very aware of the school kids coming out of school opposite my house lol

    btw how do you feel about the TV series moving away from what happened in the books?

    Some of the changes are fine. But there were a few scenes that I was expecting to be epic that just kind of fell flat for me because of changed or missing dialogue. Changes in names seemed unnecessary and I was sad at some of the extra deaths. I also feel some of the storylines were moved along a little too fast. That it kind of felt disjointed at times. I still love the show though, and will keep watching. Would prefer to read the next book before the next season but there’s nothing I can do about that! And there’s no way to avoid spoilers unless I avoid the internet completely so that’s not going to happen haha.

    The extra deaths I just don’t understand at all. I can live with going away from the plot but the characters are still for me an essential part of the overall world/story that should be respected.i wonder at times if they reach a point where they feel they must rap up a particular story line as ive noticed a couple of occasions where it just feels rushed a bit.
