Ginia Bellafonte probably thought the S&TC movies were great. (I will admit to liking the series, but the first movie was the final straw in ridiculousness, as it took seriously what was originally all fun. It would be akin to making a serious-minded movie out of Entourage -- a series that I find extremely amusing to no end.)

Considering her distaste for violence, I have to ask:

1.) What did she expect?

And perhaps more importantly:

2.) Did not the Sopranos, Deadwood, Rome, and The Wire -- which she adores (as do I) -- also revolve around violence and sex?

It's clear to me that Bellafonte is a whiny anti-fantasy wench who couldn't hold a sword to Arya and her Needle. Cersei would no doubt have her head for dinner -- and her heart for dessert. (And I'd pay to see that.) :)

Not only do girls love your series, but also gay men like me. It ain't just for the stereotypical pimply-faced sexually-frustrated D&D straight males -- a stereotype that is highly outnumbered at Cons these days -- but for people from all walks of life. Nothing irritates me more than a snobbish literary know-it-all who can't read or think outside of established NYC and LA circles and salons. (I hail from Seattle, by the by.)

Consider yourself lucky, George, that you don't have Bellafonte as a fan. The success of this series will be testament that she's clueless. (Can't wait until tomorrow night!)

Peace out. :)
