Quote from: "Aroura33"
Loved the story Bran tells about the Rat Cook, and how killing someone with guest rights beneath your own roof is the most reprehensible crime in the eyes of the gods.  Murder?  Naw, that's ok if someone did you wrong. Canabalism?  Not a biggie. But murdering someone after feeding them in your own house?  Then your doomed for eternity.
That one actually makes sense.  It's a biggie back in ancient times, story of Lot and all..

I know this, that's why I loved it!  I was afraid they were not going to make this clear in the TV show, because lets face it, a lot of TV viewers are not the brightest people.  I had already seen a lot of forum chatter (over at TWOP) expressing confusion on the scene where the Stark Party is greeted with trays of bread and large bowls of salt.  They didn't get the point.

Yep, it's mainly there to tell the viewers that what Frey did would be considered extremely morally repulsive to just about everyone even in the staggeringly sanguinary Westeroes world.[/spoil:37d2oxy1]

That's why I've started reading the books.  Daddy needs his fix.

I'm only halfway through the first one, and I've gotta say, they're pretty good.  Fills in a lot of backstory, little details, and character's inner thoughts that you don't get in the TV series.  I also remember things better when I just read it rather than saw it last week.  Or month.  Or year.

I had no idea King Robert (aka King Lard) was so damn awesome back in the day.

I really hope they flash back to Robert's Rebellion when he faces off with Rhaegar. I just want to see Robert in full HAMMER SMASH mode.  :-D

Wore my Stark shirt to class yesterday... I was happy that I got 3, "Oh dude! Nice shirt!"s but at the same time dissapointed that I only got 3, "Oh dude! Nice shirt!"s.

At the very least, I'd at least inform you that the night is dark and full of terrors.  ^_^

Argh, I don't have HBO, waiting for the DVD to see season 3 ><

Heard it was great though, eager to see the new stuff.

I recently bought the first three books but I haven't had time to read them, hoping to soon though

[Season 1 spoilers]
[spoil:2c3sa5l0]Been going through a lot of Game of Thrones videos lately:

[youtube:2c3sa5l0][/youtube:2c3sa5l0]

I really wish this scene had been in the TV show.

[youtube:2c3sa5l0][/youtube:2c3sa5l0]
[youtube:2c3sa5l0][/youtube:2c3sa5l0]

The lore videos are also really good.  You get to see the rebellion from all sides' perspective.  You really get a sense of how troubled the kingdom was during the reign of the Mad King and even though disparate rebel forces united against him, there were lots of cracks in their alliances, cracks that only widened...[/spoil:2c3sa5l0]
