WHY EDD FETCH ME A BLOCK MATTERS [UPDATED]

SO MANY OF YOU FOOLISH FOOLS HAVE EXPRESSED CONFUSION AND FRUSTRATION WITH WE THE BOOK-FAITHFUL OVER WHY WE ARE SO UPSET ABOUT THE EXCLUSION OF THE LINE “EDD FETCH ME A BLOCK” FROM THE HBO TV SHOW

ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN YOUR FOOLISHICITY

JON SNOW NOT SAYING “EDD FETCH ME A BLOCK” IS JUST ANOTHER IN THE LONG LINE OF D&D ALTERING OR COMPLETELY CUTTING EVERY SINGLE CLASSIC LINE FROM THE ENTIRE SERIES

“JAIME LANNISTER SENDS HIS REGARDS”

“ONLY CAT”

“DRACARYS! DRACARYS! DRACARYS!”

“TYWIN LANNISTER IN THE END DID NOT S*** GOLD”

“A READER LIVES A THOUSAND LIVES”

“I HAVE BEEN DESPISED BY BETTER MEN THAN YOU EDMURE”

“THAPPHIRES”

“NEEDLE WAS JON SNOWS SMILE”

“I DREAMED OF YOU”

I COULD GO ON AND ON WITH THIS (ESPECIALLY WITH JAIME QUOTES)

BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO SAY OH ITS NOT THAT BIG OF A CHANGE OR OH NO ONES GOING TO MISS THAT – ITS LIKE IF YOU WENT BACK AND WATCHED YOUR FAVORITE QUOTABLE MOVIE LIKE STAR WARS, PULP FICTION, FORREST GUMP, AMERICAN PSYCHO, ANCHORMAN, AIRPLANE, BLAZING SADDLES, MONTY PYTHON, CASABLANCA, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS ONLY YOURE WATCHING THE TBS TV VERSION AND ALL THE BEST LINES, THE LINES YOU LOVE, THE ICONIC LINES THAT WERE SO PERFECT AND SO AMAZING AND THAT STUCK WITH YOU FOR ALL THOSE YEARS AND YOU DROP INTO CASUAL CONVERSATION AND CAN GO BACK AND FORTH WITH WITH YOUR FRIENDS HAVE SUDDENLY BEEN ALTERED CHANGED CANCELLED AND ARE SIMPLY GONE

MOST IMPORTANTLY THESE ARENT CHANGES MADE SIMPLY FOR RATING LEVEL LIKE ON TV BUT THEYRE MADE FOR REASONS UNKNOWN TO US THAT ARE LATER EXPLAINED IN OFF-HAND REFERENCES IN INTERVIEWS AS IF IT WAS ALL NO BIG DEAL AND OF COURSE THEIR DECISION WAS BEST (EVEN WHEN PEOPLE POINT OUT THINGS LIKE JON SNOW LITERALLY ALWAYS HAS HIS SWORD ON HIM)

GRRM HIMSELF LAID OUT THIS POINT YEARS AGO TALKING ABOUT GONE WITH THE WIND AND THAT WHILE NARRATIVE ADAPTATION MAKES SENSE IN ORDER TO COMPRESS A NOVEL INTO A MOVIE-FRIENDLY RUNTIME BUT THAT SMALL DETAIL CHANGES MAKE NO SENSE (LIKE CHANGING THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN SCARLETT IS SAID TO HAVE) BECAUSE THE CASUAL VIEWER WILL NOT REALIZE THE DIFFERENCE BUT THE BOOK FANS WHO MADE THE NOVEL SUCCESSFUL AND ENABLED THE ADAPTATION TO EVEN BE MADE IN THE FIRST PLACE AND MAKE UP A LARGE AND OFTEN MAJORITY OF THE AUDIENCE ARE JUST GOING TO BE ANNOYED AND OFFENDED WHEN LITTLE DETAILS ARE CHANGED FOR NO REASON OTHER THAN AN INFLATED SENSE OF EGO AND HUBRIS ON THE PART OF THE FILMMAKERS

TO WIT – WHEN A NOVEL HAS BECOME SO BELOVED AND SUCCESSFUL THAT AN ADAPTATION IS PRODUCED – THE RULE OF THUMB OUGHT TO BE ADAPTING TO MAKE THE MATERIAL SUITABLE FOR SCREEN NOT ADAPTING IN ATTEMPT TO MAKE THE MATERIAL “BETTER”

NOW SOMEONE FETCH ME A BLOCK

    So why is the block comment important? You didn’t actually say…

        I really like blocks, too. I don’t like blockheads, though. Thanks for this.

    • Sas says:

      He did mention that Jon Snow always has his sword on him, so it wouldn’t make sense for him to ask for it. But there has to be something powerful there. A line to mark that moment when Jon stops them from hanging him and decides he will execute him himself. Why? Because he probably asked himself “What would Ned Stark do?”. So pls Edd, fetch me a block. Pls.
