Not seeing discussions here, at TV board, or so far on the net generally on how they are changing things on HBO.I knew it was going to be difficult to follow Martin's roadmap and cover all the ground and all the new characters and do Book 2 in S2, but at times it feels like they are planning at some point to veer wildly from the books.There have been some things already that I think are questionable (but that requires my memories of the books to be accurate, and not always sure it is). IIRC, Cersei, not Joffrey, is behind the Baratheon Bastards hunt to the death. Not sure what they have in mind in distancing her from that call -- some redemption that wasn't in the books?More annoying to me is a flat out sex tryst between Stannis and Melisandre - seems counter to the idea of Stannis as rigid code guy. Seems they're dumping Stannis' wife, daughter and Fool from their already very crowded cast. But Stannis was, again IIRC, taken with Melisandre declaring him as the one true king for her God of Light than for booty calls.HBO seems breast fixated. Seems at times unnecessary time wasting with so much story to tell.Ken
