lol some of those were awesome. I especially loved the 'news' story on the plane that had to make an emergency landing.

Bwahahahaha!! Maybe I'm just an old meanie, but I am thoroughly enjoying all the shock and anger among the TV fans. "Read the books," we told them, "before watching the show." "No," they answered, "we can't read 1,000-page books!" They have reaped what they have sown!

Those who hadn't read the scene years before the show was nary an urge in GRRM's literary loins, who hadn't suffered through the 5-year wait for Book Four, the idiotic splitting of the volume, the 5-year wait for ADwD...I have no sympathy for them. *evil laugh* Those reactions made my day.

My mom is reading the books but she had just finished book 2 and has not yet started book 3. So I insisted on visiting her when she went to watch the "rains of castamere" episode just to see her reaction.

When talisa was knifed in the stomach, i saw mom shudder slightly... then she stoically watched the rest without much reaction. as it ended I said "And THAT was the red wedding" to which she replied "What a weird way to end... I hate it. I don't wanna watch anymore"

Still, she took it ALOT better then most the tv fans.

Heh!

Penny hasn't read the books, but she accidentally spoiled the "surprise" by reading some news story about people's reactions (we watch it a day behind because arrrr me hearties), so she got a little grossed out (and, honestly, that knife in the belly was awful, even if I was expecting something along those lines) but wasn't really shocked.

My reaction was the same as it was in 2001: Robb Stark, you idiot, this is what you get for being stupid, selfish, and dishonorable. It made me hate the Freys, and hate the Lannisters even more than I already did.

But they made it even more evil with stabbing Talisa in the belly, since the actual wife of Robb wasn't preggers or at the RW in the books. But Robb was so dumb. Who was next name on the list? *snicker* THAT is one I will be cheering about.

It looks like I'm way behind here. I've only watched the first half of the
first season as of yet. In two weeks my holyday will start, so I guess
I know what I will do.

As of the reactions to the RW, I have to agree with Pat. People should've
read the books!! But some of those tweets were brilliant ;)

Who the heck is Talisa? I don't get new characters or killing random characters because somehow the books aren't shock jock enough for HBO. also random sex and rape in the background. But then again, I'm a book purist. I was totally with Pat, in fact, I think we had convos about this very topic. I felt contempt for the tv fans when it came out. I mean, it gets a lot worse even if this was the single most brutal event. No waiting between book, and I feel like it was worse I. the books simply because of more character developement and I think secondary and tertiary characters have a bit more life to them in the books. Hate the freys, I don't think the show could change that or increase it. Mmm Frey pies. <3 wyman.
