Well, the much anticipated Season Six premier was last night, and now that I have had some time to process everything, I thought I could write about it a bit.
I have read all five books in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series (multiple times) and enjoy them very much. While there have been differences between the TV show and the books, I also appreciate the interpretation that has been done by the TV show. After all, they are totally different mediums, and considering the size of the books, 10 hours per season is actually NOT a lot of time. So yeah, some streamlining has to take place. I accept that.
Still, I have to admit I have been a little nervous now that the show is passing the books, at least in terms of some of the story lines, just as I am admittedly a little nervous about where George R.R. Martin will be taking some of the characters in the books. And so while I have theories about what might happen next on the show, it’s rare that my ideas about future events on Game of Thrones have been proved to be so utterly, completely wrong.
