The greatest fear of the book readers of A Song and Ice and Fire has finally been confirmed–the show, Game of Thrones, will be spoiling the books. For years, readers of the series have known what was going to happen and generally looked forward to seeing their favorite characters come to life on the small screen. But for the first time, book readers and show watchers will be in the same boat. Season 5 still has some ground to cover in A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons, but judging from the trailers, set pictures and cast interviews, this season is bound to be a little unnerving for book readers as it deviates very far from the books. It is no secret that I was late in joining the Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire fandom. I didn’t start watching until season 2 and I didn’t read until after the season 3 finale. Like many of you, I watched the show and loved it. It was amazing to me. I LOVED the characters and the stories and devoured each episode. But as soon as I picked up a book and began to read, I felt as if I had been cheated. I felt that HBO and D&D had wronged me. And they had wronged you all by omitting small details and characters and the experiences of the characters in the book that actually MAKE the story.  The show creators David Benihoff and D.B. Weiss, affectionately known as D&D, have claimed that the endings will be the same. Really? The same? I highly doubt that. There is no way that they can “be the same.”

One of the biggest reasons why fans of the book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, have issue with the TV show Game of Thrones, is due to vast alterations of character portrayals. Alterations which drastically change the calculus for character decisions and ultimately plot outcomes. Throughout the last 4 seasons fans have seen some fairly consistent portrayals of the characters such as Bran Stark or Jon Snow. However there have been some massive problems with character portrayals such as Asha Greyjoy and Loras Tyrell. One of the biggest deviations in is the character of Cersei Lannister. Certainly this is no attack on Cersei fans, or fans of Lena Headey’s sterling performance.Simply, what fans deserve to see is HBO show a more rounded depiction of Cersei be exhibited on this season of Game of Thrones, but sadly, it is unlikely anyone will get to seethe real Cersei.

My biggest problem with the show is how black/white D&D present everything compared to the books. The show clearly has favorites and views and imposes that on the show when the book was so great for its nuance and perspective.

In Defense of the Faith

After watching the Season 5 trailer that shows Loras Tyrell might be on trial due to homosexuality in HBO’s Game of Thrones, I was shocked, angry and most of all confused. Why does HBO have to change the story so much? Aside from wanting to bring about give heart attacks AngryGoTFan and the rest of the Army of Anger, I came to the only logical solution: they want us to dislike the Faith of the Seven.

Let’s review what we know about the Faith from the books: The Faith has a hierarchy similar to the medieval church and the similarities are noted between the belief of God having many aspects, churches/septs and the connection between the faith and the crown. However, let us forget this connection and look at the aspects of the Faith regardless of our own views on organized religion in the 21st Century.
