Or at least I thought it was obvious.


Anyway Rob; He's dead. He's dead because he was stupid. /topic.


Rumor has it the character who plays Rob has been signed up for season 6, so it looks like he'll be rising from the dead.
Have any of you even considered that maybe George just isn't that good? That he got lucky with the first three books? That he had a great story leading up to the Red Wedding and the rest of the story he has no frickin' clue? haha Does that even cross your minds? ~ Shawn Speakman 1/31/2012

Have you checked Entertainment Weekly's new set pictures? They are mostly amazing. And Jaime, even with darker hair colour, is totally :boobs:


Laydlo, I wholeheartedly agree with you: no more wtf wigs this season!! Besides, they have apparently decided to tone down KL's ridiculous hair styles. Sansa is soooooo beautiful in this pic http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,2047053 ... l#21133660

There is also this interview with Gurm in Canada put on a wic article http://winteriscoming.net/2012/03/grrm-interviewed-on-canadian-tv/#comment-158247
Martin never forget about us and I feel touched.
It started about the interview and ended up (again) detractors vs apologists. It went good and I'm happy because I think I trolled. Have a look if you got nothing better to do, I could use the opinion of the experts.

You didn't troll at all: in fact, you were much more reasonable than most people there.
Knurk had a point, though: do you think George mentions detractors to play the victim in the interviews? If so :deadhorse:

Knurk is spot on. Gurm likes to be cuddled by compassionate fans.

What I tried to do there was by pretending I defend the apologist argument, expose Martin for what he really is/does.
I really wanted to be clear what's right behavior and what's douchey.
I guess professional trolling is a rocky road full of sacrifices. I still have a lot to learn.

Edit: Thanks Japie, I'm glad somebody noticed.

PS. Does anybody know who knurk is?

No idea, but he's a big fan of the tv series. Do you know if he's around here? He must be, at least lurking. No one can express that disdain for George while at the same time loving the tv series other than a detractor.

Well, if he's not a resident, an invitation seems proper.

Knurk is also one of the most profound analyst of Shawn Speakman moving prose. :troll:
