Tells you to Watch Game of Thrones. And there will be a non-awkward silence afterwards.
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

But it's just one of those things.. the show's creators have to make a lot of creative decisions based on many factors, and we just have to accept that they're doing what they think is best for the show. /shrug

True, but then the fact heir hair burning off contradicts her statement of "Dragons do not burn"
Cutting it off, I can see, but with the way it is written...burning it sounds like a big contradiction.

Yeah , but hair is hair after all, it was a bit weird for me picturing hair not burning. It would have also been a good visual aid to show the passing of time, but in the end is a minor thing.
I finished Clash of Kings, and already have Storm of Swords waiting for me to finish this semester
Gods sake, Theon...

**Spoilers.. don't read on if you haven't seen the end of the first season of Game of Thrones or read the book**
It's funny how in the first book, Martin sets up a few characters as being important, ground-moving people that you expect to last through the series and eventually come together (whether as allies or enemies, who knows), but they all recede and make way for those that appeared to be less powerful and therefore less important to the larger story at play. In the end, characters like Drogo and Eddard are not important in themselves; they are used to thrust other characters into the path of the story and set actions in motion. One could argue, for example, that Eddard's entire purpose in the story was to separate his children throughout Westeros so the story could pick them up and take them in different directions.

"Its the thing that you love that will kill you" I thinks thats a constant.
Eddard´s honor, Drogo´s Khal Pride, Vinerys obsession with obtaining power, Robert being an stubborn drunk. It´s usually the character´s own traits that end up sending them spiraling down to their demise, in reality all of them could have avoided their own deaths.
I think Jon Snow is starting to remind me of Harry Potter, he is stablish as an underdog from the beginning (bastard this , bastard that) but as the story progresses he keeps on being a reference point for everyone around him, like he is very special among the rest. Even Samwell reminds me a bit of Ron Weasley.
I still don´t like Catelyn...
