Back to Game of Thrones... OK, if you are watching the series, you should have noticed they have left out the story line where Cersi (? spelling) is sleeping with those brothers (? cousins?) and how she was scheming with them to make Jeoffry's (? spelling) bride out to be a sl@t by sleeping wit them. Basically one of them was lying for Cersi. Then the plot is found out, and Cersi was put in the tower and then made to walk the streets naked.

But they don't seem to be doing this story line in the shows, which is disappointing. That moment in the books was magnificent!

A good bit of that was Book 5 correct? I'm not sure when she started sleeping with ?Lancel? and then the other dudes on the Kings Guard as well. Based on the interaction between Cersei and The Queen in waiting a couple episodes ago, I'm guessing they will get there. The books made Cersei out to be much more power hungry and evil than the show seems to be. She's probably the most evil person in the books from my perspective.

Not sure whats up the double posts, but its annoying.

I'm curious as to what they are going to do with book 4. Do they intro all these new characters and tell the story of books 4 and 5 over the course of maybe 3 seasons or what? I'm sure they could leave a good bit of Sam's voyage out and Bran gets a little weird in there too. And Arya could have her own spinoff show about her journey.

Maybe? I can't recall what book that was in! Ha! Right, the show isn't giving the full details on how evil she is. But my boyfriend, who hasn't read the books, completely see's  her as an evil person, so maybe they are making it come across?

Yeah, who knows. I'm not even sure Sam will go on his journey in the show. The gal he brought back was supposed to go with him, and she's gone.

I think they had a quick scene, or part of scene, in an earlier season where it showed her hooking up with a cousin.

It was really brief, if I recall correctly, it was sort of a quick "Why are you still here?" as he leaves her bedroom... something to that effect.

I just read through this discussion and learned so many things I missed!  I "ingested" the books via audiobook downloads from the library - the best way to spend my commute to/from work.  I couldn't believe how so many of the names were spelled when I finally read some things about the story.     I really recommend audio because there is no skimming. 

If it will really take that long to get book 6 I am definitely going to have to re-read or at least spend a of time looking at the wiki.

Was your post a joke? It states at the bottom that its a humor piece written by a different dude entirely.

Just watched the whole Series 4 of GOT. I would say well done. I am only disappointed the script did not include the line:

"My Giant of Lannister"
-Shae
SOS:Tyrion Chap.70
